1 And in
that day [yowm] thou shalt say, ['amar] O
LORD, [Yahovah] I will praise [yadah] thee: though thou wast angry ['anaph] with me, thine anger ['aph]
is turned away, [shuwb] and thou comfortedst [nacham] me. KJV-Interlinear
1 Then you
will say on that day, "I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord; For although
Thou wast angry with me, Thine anger is turned away, And Thou dost comfort me.
In that day, is a reference to the previous chapter, wherein the Messiah, the Lord, has defeated evil and all enemies of good and truth, and has delivered all who have looked to Him in those desperate days with never-ending confidence.
And despite obvious and overwhelming odds against them, they were kept alive by Christ, in order to be delivered by Christ, and enter into the Millennium, which is the promised Kingdom of God on earth.
It is those people who will witness the most dramatic events of all of human history. Never having seen past history, but only knowing about what they have read in the history books and such, and most probably not giving much of even a second thought to the past events of history, but now will have seen first hand, the rise of an anti-christ, and the fall of humanity and the entire world, in just seven brief but seemingly long years.
They will be witness to the dramatic geological changes in the planet. They will be witness to the dramatic changes in the animal life. They will be witness to the dramatic changes in a world that no longer has the influence of an imprisoned Satan.
And the thoughts of all people will now be ones of praise and appreciation and love and deep thoughtfulness for all that the Lord has accomplished for them and for everyone.
And it is this twelfth chapter, though just a short six verses, which will demonstrate the incredible song that will exist within the hearts of those who have been delivered from the worlds worst period in all of human history.
When most did not look to Christ, when most will probably fall away in their despair and anxiety driven fears and worries, when most will not learn doctrine and grow up in their spiritual life and spiritual faith as counseled in the first few verses of chapter eleven, when most will lack doctrine and therefore will give up in their life and on life because the pressures and terrors of the world are too great, and their faith in Gods plan and deliverance was too small or non-existent.
It will be a time when everyone, without exception, during that period of Tribulation, will never know what tomorrow will bring, when all around them there is nothing but destruction and death and starvation and violence, and absolutely no reason to believe that tomorrow will be any better, but most likely will be far worse.
But there will be a few, a remnant, who will look to God after living in unbelief, and will turn their lives totally to His promise, and they will persevere through until the very end, until He returns at the Second Advent, and established His Kingdom and rule.
And the changes will be so dramatic that there will not be words to express oneself, except these few words or praise. Words and confidences that should be in all of us regardless of when we live in history.
