(Isa. 63:1, 3-4).
Not only does Christ vent His anger in Bozrah, but as we’ll
see in the next chapter, those of us who are in Christ (the be-
lievers in Jesus) will join in the Messiah’s judgement, after He
first sets the example of how to carry out His day of vengeance.

They extend all the way northward through Megiddo, also the
scene of an ancient type of this battle (Judges 5:19).
In his book, Revelation Record, Dr. Henry Morris states
