A Day of Victory

Isaiah 63:1 Who is this; coming from Edom, from Bozrah with His garments stained red, moving in His mighty power? It is I; proclaiming victory, I who am strong to save.

Edom refers to all the ungodly peoples, all those opposed to the purposes of God.

Bozrah means ‘sheepfold’, and is used here as a metaphor for those nations where His sheep – the lost tribes of Israel and all the Christian peoples are at present. Matthew 15:24

The Lord, in His mighty power, proclaims victory and saves His people. This is His great Day of vengeance and wrath. Isaiah 34:1-8, Isaiah 66:15-17, Zephaniah 3:8, Revelation 6:12-17

Isaiah 63:2-6 Why are Your clothes splashed with blood? I resolved on a Day of vengeance, I trod the nations in My anger and My clothes were splashed by their blood. No one came to My assistance, by My own might, I brought victory. I shattered My enemies in My fury, their blood spilled on the ground.

Luke 20:43 & Acts 2:35 The Lord said to my Lord: sit at My right hand until I make your enemies your footstool. Psalm 110:1

Hebrews 10:12-13 Christ, having offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, took His seat at God’s right hand and now waits until His enemies are made His footstool.

From these verses, it is made quite clear that Jesus does not Return in His glory until His enemies are ‘made His footstool’. That is they are punished and defeated. But it is ‘the Son of man’- that is: Jesus Himself who actually instigates this Day of vengeance. This accords with; Luke 3:16-17...the chaff He will burn on a unquenchable fire.

Psalm 18:7-15...He makes darkness His covering, hail and glowing coals go before Him.

But on that Day, He will be revealed to His people, those who believe and trust in His salvation.

Zechariah 9:14-16 The Lord will appear over them, His weapon will flash like lightning – He will save His people. Ezekiel 20:9-11 & 36

Isaiah 60:1-3 Over you the glory of the Lord has dawned, though darkness covers the earth, on you the Lord shines and over you His Glory will appear.

2 Thessalonians 1:6-10....the Day the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire, punishing the godless peoples, He will reveal His glory among all believers.

Luke 17:29-30 On the day Sodom was destroyed, fire and Sulphur rained upon them and killed them all. It will be like that on the Day the Son of Man is revealed. Isaiah 24:23b

In Luke 4:18-19, At the commencement of His ministry, Jesus quoted only verse 1 and the first half of verse 2 of Isaiah 61:1-2. The second half is unfulfilled prophecy – ‘A Day of vengeance of our God and to comfort those who mourn’.

Many other prophecies confirm that this Day of vengeance and wrath is the next action of the Lord on the earth and as the rest of Isaiah 61:3-11 state, it is also the time He will ‘ comfort those who mourn’. That is: people who grieve for Christ’s death and trust in Him for their salvation.

Note that the Lord has blood stained clothes, then much later at His Return in glory, Revelation 19:13 He is ‘robed in garments dyed in blood’.

This proves that the Day of vengeance is before His Return.



Isaiah 30:26 The sun will shine with 7 times its normal strength on the Day I save My people.

Habakkuk 3:12-13 Furiously You traverse the earth, in anger You trample down the nations. You go forth to save Your people, Your anointed ones. You shatter the house of the godless to its foundations.

Zechariah 10:5-6 Destruction of enemies, then restoration for the true believers of God.

Ref. REB. some verses abridged.


Then: more than 40 prophecies categorically state how His faithful Christian people will gather and settle in the new country of Beulah.

Edom refers to all the ungodly peoples, all those opposed to the purposes of God.
So where do you get the idea that Edom (Mt. Seir) does not refer to the ancient nation of Edom which is now Southern Jordan?

With God, we shall gain the victory:

Psalm 60:1 You have rejected and crushed us, O God. You have been angry – restore us.

Psalm 60:2 You have made the Land quake and caused it to split open. Repair it’s ruins, for it is shattered.

Psalm 60:3-5 You have made Your people drunk and senseless. But, to those who fear You, You have raised a banner to which they may escape from the bow. Save with Your right hand those whom You love.

Psalm 60:6 God has spoken from His sanctuary; I will go up and divide Sechem and the valley of Succoth.

Psalm 60:7-8 Gilead and Manasseh are Mine. Ephraim is My helmet, Judah is My scepter. Moab is My washbowl, on Edom I will fling My sandals. Over Philistia, I will triumph.

Psalm 60:9-11 Who will bring Me to the fortified city? To Edom. God, you have rejected us – You no longer lead our armies. Help us against our enemies, we cannot expect help from other men.

Psalm 60:12 With God, we shall gain victory and He will tread our enemies underfoot. Ref. REB some verses abridged

I have actually climbed up Mt Seir in Southern Jordan. I had to climb up a narrow track, almost a tunnel to where the ruins of Edom's houses were. It was a very good place to defend against attackers.
There was no one there, or at Bozrah, now called Buseria; a small Arab village nearby.

My question to you was: "So where do you get the idea that Edom (Mt. Seir) does not refer to the ancient nation of Edom which is now Southern Jordan?" The reason that I ask is because at the Second Coming of Christ, He destroys the AC in Edom as described in Isaiah 34 and 63, among others. He then proceeds to Jerusalem where His feet first touch the ground.

My wife and I toured Egypt, Jordan, and Israel over 3 weeks in March 2008. We didn't climb Mt. Seir but spent time exploring Petra, among other places. .

Edom and Bozrah are 'types'. They represent the evil peoples and the people of God respectively.

Currently the is Edomic peoples who occupy the holy Land. They will soon be removed, Jeremiah 12:14, and only faithful Christians will go to live there. Isaiah 35:1-10, Ezekiel 34:11-16, Romans 9:24=26
