Perhaps I find Psalm 11:6 encouraging because I’m so fed up with false teachers/ preachers, progressives, RINOs, the lamestream media, the non-Christian movie industry, the violence, the consistence fermenting of violence by those who hate America and hate our founding values and more.
Psalm 11:6, “Upon the wicked (H7563) he shall rain snares (H6341), fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion (H4487) of their cup.”
H7563, From H7561; morally wrong; concretely/ actively bad person: condemned, guilty, ungodly, wicked (man), that did wrong. H7561, A primitive root; to be (causatively do or declare) wrong; by implication to disturb, violate: - condemn, make trouble, vex, be, do wickedly.
Sounds like George Soros and his minions and the followers of Saul Alinsky author of the 1971 book Rules for Radicals.
H6341, From H6351, to spread a net: - be snared.
H4521, From H4487; an allotment (by courtesy, law or providence): - portion. H4487, to weigh out; by implication to allot or constitute officially; also to enumerate or enroll: - appoint, count, number, prepare, set, tell.
Weigh out, number, harkens back to part of Daniel 5:25, “And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.”
Meme, numbered and Tekel, weighed in the balances, and found wanting.
Cup is often used to indicate the wrath of God.
Will the cup meant for the ungodly be a repeat of Genesis 19:24-25, “24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.”
Although the evil done in the United States does not begin to approach that foretold in the Book of Revelation, are we far from the days of Revelation 6:10, “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”
The shedding of another’s blood goes back to Genesis 4:10, “And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.”
What of the blood of the millions of unborn babies rip apart in their mother’s womb? Decades after abortion was legalized by man’s law are we, as a society, sliding down the slippery slope to post-birth abortion? What of euthanasia of the elderly and severally disabled?
Although God is infinite love He is also righteous and hates men who practice violence. God will rain down a storm/ tempest of judgment on the wicked of fire and brimstone.
