Isaiah 14: 24-27. “The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass: and as I have purposed, so shall it stand. That I will break the Assyrian in My land, and upon My mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and His hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?”
For a time, it will seem as if Antichrist has won. The whole earth, and particularly Israel, will feel the weight of his evil intent. There will will suffering and sorrow.
But God. These two word do not appear in this passage, but the promise of His plan certainly does. There will seem to be a terrible future under Antichrist’s heavy yoke, but God has a plan; He will win, and Antichrist will be broken, defeated forever. And no one will be able to stop God’s plan. Not all the forces of evil that Antichrist controls, nor any other power, will have any semblance of victory when God says, “Enough!”
