the fulfillment of this type. God will use hailstones once again

(Rev. 16:21), and the sun will be supernaturally controlled at

noon (Amos 8:9).

Confusion and Terror

God has thrown the enemies of Israel into confusion on a

number of occasions. Gideon defeated the Midianites when the

Lord caused them to turn on each other with their swords at

the time Gideon’s men blew their trumpets (Judges 7:22). God

again confused Israel’s enemies at the time of Jehoshaphat. The

Israelites were so outnumbered that singing praises and peti-

tioning the Lord were all they could do. The Lord answered

their prayer and confused the enemies so that they killed one

another (2 Chron. 20:23). We saw earlier that the Angel of the

Lord, the End or Omega (Jesus) put to death a hundred and

eighty-five thousand in one night, before the sun rose (2 Kings

19:35). Also, God struck terror into the Arameans and caused

them to flee at twilight when they heard the supernatural

sound of chariots, and a great army (2 Kings 7:6-7).

Supernatural Beings Will Battle

Heavenly beings have long been employed by God in His

armed forces. On one occasion, King David was able to hear

God’s supernatural army that was to go out ahead of him to

fight the battle.

“As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of

the balsam trees, move quickly, because that will mean the

Lord has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army”

(2 Sam.5:24).
