What Happens When the Lord Comes?

or, Shalt Thou be Zapped?

Here is what happens when the Lord comes, as spoken by the holy Prophet, Isaiah (40:1-5).

"Comfort ye, comfort ye My people!"
Says your God.

2 "Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her,
That her warfare is ended,

That her iniquity is pardoned;
For she has received from the Lord's hand
Double for all her sins."

The Lord has already allowed Jerusalem's own folly to bring more than enough chastisement and misery upon her (double what she deserves) and there's no need for the Lord to inflict any more.

3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
"Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make straight in the desert
A highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be exalted
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough places smooth;

5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken it."
