Therefore the LORD [Yahovah] will cut off [karath] from
Israel [Yisra'el] head [ro'sh] and tail, [zanab] branch [kippah] and rush, ['agmown] in one ['echad] day. [yowm]KJV-Interlinear
14 So the
Lord cuts off head and tail from Israel, Both palm branch and bulrush in a
single day. NASB
Head and tail, typically denotes those of rank, the head, and those of lesser or no rank, the tail.
Branch and reed, denotes the strong, the branch, and the weak, the reed.
One, indicates a single unit, an uninterrupted event, short, swift.
Day, can refer to a twenty-four hour day, a short space of time, sunrise to sunset, and can be modified by some other term, such as the word, single, used before it.
Never in history has Israel fallen in a single day. Their prior destructions occurred over the space of several weeks and months and even years, and came with ebbs and flows of an aggressive invasion.
However, in the Tribulation, when the anti-christ launches his surprise attack against the Middle East, then that invasion, from all sides, will occur with blinding and lightning speed.
No one will be spared. All will be affected. Those who are the rich, the famous and the powerful, will be swallowed up in the onslaught. Those who are the common, the nobodies, the weak, the poor, the unhealthy and such, will be swallowed up in the onslaught.
No one will be spared, especially those who have ignored the warnings that have been issued by Isaiah and the scriptures.
Those who do heed the scriptures, will be spared, if they obey the command to leave for the safety of the mountains and rural areas, before the invasion begins, and continue in hiding until the Second Advent.
But that number will most likely be few. After all, in our day of technology and the conveniences of home, who is likely going to leave for the inconveniences of a cave and no utilities? And if these things do not occur for yet another century, then how much more will the conveniences of modern technology be, over and above the inconveniences of pioneering in the rough?
Even in our current day, most folks won't even yield to the mandates of a daily study. Something that is really not that inconvenient to ones life. How much more difficult will it be to leave ones home for an indefinite period of time while the whole world is falling apart?
