Isaiah 8: 9-10. “Associate yourselves, O ye people; and ye shall be broken in pieces: and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces.Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.”
Verse 9 speaks of the far future, the final gathering of the nations under the Antichrist against the Jews in the war of Armageddon, and the complete destruction of their confederate effort to annihilate Israel. As things were in Isaiah’s day, with nations making pacts together to come against Israel, so it shall be in the end times. So it already is. In just a few weeks, 70 nations are going to meet together to discuss the fate of Israel. They really believe they have a say in that.
The first line of verse 9, which reads Associate yourselves, O ye people, is stated in other translations as Disquiet yourselves or Raise the war cry. The end result will be the same, though: The nations who rise against Israel will be broken in piece, repeated twice in verse 9 for emphasis.
And why will the coalition of nations against Israel be broken in pieces? Simple. God is with Israel. God will protect Israel from the present jihadist goal of wiping them off the earth, and God will protect Israel at Armageddon while those who rose against them will be broken in pieces.
