God's Toolbox Includes Punishment
“Woe to… unjust judges and to those who issue unfair laws…, so… there is no justice for the poor, widows and orphans. …What will you do when I… send desolation upon you…? To whom will you turn… for… help? …I will not help… [when] you… stumble along as prisoners or lie among the slain. …Even then my anger will not be satisfied; …my fist will still be poised to strike you. Assyria is the whip of my anger… upon this godless nation, doomed and damned. He will enslave them, and plunder them, and trample them like dirt beneath his feet” (Isa 10:1-6, TLB). “Seek the Lord while you can find Him. Call on Him… while He is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that He may have mercy on them. …Turn to our God, for He will forgive…” (Isa 55:6-7, NLT).
