Therefore shall all hands [yad] be faint [raphah], and
every man's ['enowsh] heart [lebab] shall melt [macac]: KJV-Interlinear
all hands will fall limp,And every man's heart will melt. NASB
And what would you expect the result would be for those who are in the trenches so to speak, and then hear at first and then see an armada, a huge charging army or armies in unbelievable numbers, coming straight for them?
And that is the result of the previous verse.
The enemies of God are on planet earth. They are engaged in the last great war of the Tribulation, which we call Armageddon. There is death and destruction all around.
For the prior seven years these people have seen the world disintegrate into total disaster after disaster.
You can read the Revelation study for a greater in depth description of what people will be thinking during that time.
And here it is emphasized with just a little detail.
Hands will faint or fall limp, and hearts will melt away in helplessness and hopelessness and utter defeat.
The anxiety and terror will be at its extreme in those final minutes, when Christ and all that follow Him, come charging through the heavens and descend into the clouds.
And of course we know that only Christ will descend to and touch the ground. The rest of us who will be in that vast army, will remain in the clouds to observe, making such a noise, that it will be deafening to all who are on the planet.
