23 For the LORD will pass through to strike down the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood upon the lintel and the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you down.
16 Behold, I have created the artisan who blows the coals in the fire and brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the destroyer to destroy.
|Isaiah 24:6 |
6 Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate; therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.2 [The earth has become so evil, it must be purged; as it was purged in the time of Noah, so it is about to be thinned. From the Word of the Lord within: "Long have we tolerated evil in the world; it is no longer tolerable. A purge must take place; deaths are necessary. All is being done for the sake of the children."]
