    Verses 18 to 23 are a very vivid description of Jehovah's war against his enemies. Before they are destroyed they will know that Jehovah is the true God and he is bringing judgement on them.

    Interesting, I wonder if the IRON DOME has anything to do with that? Interesting thought at least. Isreal is said to be a peace at that time, I would not say it is very peaceful now... So maybe for some the time is not near?
