The Philistines

Jeremiah 47:6-7
(6) Ah, sword of the LORD! How long till you are quiet? Put yourself into your scabbard; rest and be still!
(7) How can it be quiet when the LORD has given it a charge? Against Ashkelon and against the seashore he has appointed it."

The rest of Jeremiah covers the upcoming destruction of the nations. Here we see Jeremiah's plea for the Lord to stop the destruction. However, the Lord will destroy whom He will.

I'm still not sure exactly how to read Revelation and other apocalyptic literature, but I am pretty well settled on at least one matter. Christ will come back in glory to reign. It is not going to be a good day for His enemies. There is no fence-sitting with Christ. Either you're His friend or His enemy. How will it be for you when He returns?
