Divine Delete vs Divine Doom, Death and Destruction

In BSF, we’re currently going through the book of Isaiah. Chapter 1 opens with an intriguing proclamation from the Lord that judgment is at hand: those who willing obey will enjoy the fruit of the land, but those who resist God’s rule will be consumed with raging fire. Check it out (Isaiah 1).

So now I’m wondering… if God can speak worlds into existence, speak heavens, waters, earth, animals and plants into existence, then it stands to reason that He can simply speak them out of existence. So when it comes time to deal with evil, it seems reasonable to conclude that God has two options: He can simply speak and have evil removed, or He can send doom, death and destruction. He consistently chooses the latter (Genesis 6; Isaiah 1:19-20; Ezekiel 33:1-3; Luke 13:1-5; II Thess 1:6-10; Rev 18-19).

And in the case of when He sends “the sword”, if we unpack the word ‘sword’, we see that it means a marauding army of foreign invaders. I think it’s safe to say that most military attackers don’t comport themselves with the same composure and demeanor that the American military use in their attacks. These ancient peoples attack by raping, pillaging and plundering. So is this what God intended? Sending doom, death and destruction instead of quietly speaking the word ‘Delete’ ?

Apparently so!
Read Leviticus 26 if you’re not sure this is what God intended.
If you’re still unconvinced, read Deuteronomy 28 and ask yourself what v 63 means in that context.

Then ask yourself why you never hear modern preachers talk about this.

Kinda makes ya wanna say ‘hmmmmm…..’
