Burning and Fuel of Fire

Isaiah 9:5. “For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.”

The battle mentioned in versed 4 , “in the day of Midian,” is a reference to the time of Gideon’s victory (Judges 6 and 7). God saved the nation, but it was not by great military power. He used a small company, and the power of His own strength.

So it will be in the coming day.  The nation will be completely outnumbered as the entire world circles around Israel like vultures waiting for the kill so they can swoop down and feast on the carrion.God says that when we are weak, then we are strong (2 Cor. 12:10).  In 2 Chron. 28:21 we read that his own self-efforts “helped him not.”

The battle is the Lord’s!

Verse 5 points directly to the Battle of Armageddon, That climax will see “all the armour of the armed man in the tumult” (Joel 3:9-14; Zech. 14:13), “the garments rolled in blood” (Isa. 63:3; Rev. 14:20). “burning.” and “fuel of fire” (Isa. 66:15,16; Joel 2:30).

But all that depends on one overarching event.
