Section 8: Anointed Assignment, Article 7

Anointed to Proclaim
the Day of Vengeance
of Our Elohim

“The Spirit of Yehuveh Elohim is upon me;
because Yehuveh hath anointed me . . .
to proclaim . . .
the day of vengeance of our Elohim.”
Isaiah 61:1-2.

saiah 61:1-2 states that “The Spirit of Yehuveh Elohim is upon me; because Yehuveh hath anointed me to . . . proclaim . . . the day of vengeance of our Elohim.” What does Yehuveh’s vengeance entail? To whom is it directed? When will it come? Scripture clearly states that Yehuveh
will release His vengeance on a single day and Isaiah has told us we are anointed to proclaim this day! Are we to know before it comes when this day will be so we can proclaim it, or are we merely to proclaim that Yehuveh’s day of vengeance will indeed come?

What this day involves is discussed here; when it occurs is discussed in the companion article The Day of Vengeance. Also see notes on Vengeance.

“Wait . . . Until  the Day that I Rise Up!”
        Several prophets speak of
“the day of vengeance of our Elohim,” “the great and terrible day of Yehuveh,” “the day . . . that shall burn as an oven,” but the major insight into knowing when to expect this day is presented in connection with waiting for it! Yehuveh’s counsel is to “wait [chakah, H2442] upon Yehuveh, . . . and . . . look for Him.” Zephaniah clearly associated this waiting with Yehuveh’s destruction by fire: “Therefore wait [chakah, H2442] ye upon Me, saith Yehuveh, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them Mine indignation, even all My fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.” Habakkuk cautions us to wait for the fulfillment of Yehuveh’s foretold events at “an appointed time,” a mo’ed, a festival, an established annual rehearsal: “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait [chakah, H2442] for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” And Daniel, taking the discussion a step further, associates this waiting with a defined number of days before the end of Yehuveh’s prophesied time: “Blessed is he that waiteth [chakah, H2442], and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” Joel 2:31; Isaiah 8:17; Zephaniah 3:8; Habakkuk 2:3; Daniel 12:12.
