"THE GOBLET, MY CUP OF RAGE". (Isaiah 51:22).
"Rouse yourself, rouse yourself,
rise up, O Jerusalem, you who have drunk at the hand of Jehovah His cup of rage.
The goblet, the cup causing reeling, you have drunk, you have drained out."
"THESE DAYS RECALL FOR ME THE DAYS OF
NOAH". (54:9 NEB).
"The goblet, My
cup of rage
will not repeat the drinking of it anymore." "I will give it instead to your
tormentors and oppressors…"
(51:22,23 NWT & NEB).
"These days" that recall for Jehovah the days of Noah (His promise
never again to flood the earth with water) is His promise to faithful anointed
sons of Zion that He will never again become indignant toward them or rebuke
them. (54:9). What does this mean? That it was by the Spirit of His wrath
that the denunciations of the "Little Scroll" were compiled. (Rev
10:8-11). We are watching for the time appointed by Jehovah for the ending of
His wrath, as promised through anointed members of the heavenly "woman"
as He puts the Spirit of His wrath into the hands of those tormenting and
oppressing us. (51:23 NEB).
I, as an anointed member of the heavenly "woman" of God, have been
used to declare knowledge of the wrath of Jehovah "the One that is
speaking". It is not only what offends Him that we wish brought to an
end, but also His appointed wrath, that "something better" may
then be published: "Your God has become King!" (52:6,7).
"MY NAME WAS BEING TREATED WITH DISRESPECT". (52:5).
As soon as
knowledge of their disrespect for Jehovah's Name was revealed to them, apostates
occupying the spiritual "land" of Zion*
sold His faithful anointed sons into worldly "Egypt" for nothing.
(52:4). But from these "devastated places" they will be
The extent of this disrespect for His Name is clearly revealed by
the testimony of the "Little Scroll" by Spirit. "But on that day
My people shall know My Name; they shall know that it is I who speak; here I
am." (52:6 NEB).
WITH HIS "SIGNAL" (49:22) NEWS OF "SOMETHING
With His Signal
Jehovah shall bare "His holy arm before the eyes of all the nations"
(52:10), which with reference to Egypt, Ethiopia, Lebanon, the "contemptible
creature" and the "disgusting thing" have until now been "as a thief".
(Rev 16:15. 1 Thess 5:2,3). Although enemies of God now proclaim "Peace
and Security!" the figurative baring of His holy arm will remove these
"haughtily exultant ones" and free His people. (Zeph 3:11
With our own eyes we shall see the Lord returning in pity to Zion. (52:8 NEB).
"Something better" is the news of our salvation. (52:7
