Isaiah 10:28-34. “He is come to Aiath; he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages: They are gone over the passage; they have taken up their lodging at Geba: Rama is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled. Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim, cause it to be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth. Madmenah is removed: the inhabitants of Begrim gather themselves to flee. As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem. Behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled. And He shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.”
Assyria/Antichrist will have taken over the countryside with the armies gathered from the nations. Israel will be in SO much trouble and misery. The people will be full of fear, and it will seem there is nowhere to turn.
It will be God’s intervention that saves them from Assyria; and again, centuries later, when He saves them from Antichrist.
