Only some of GOD’s children would be saved, those sinners who refused to turn from their wicked ways, those that continued to sin, even after praying for forgiveness and those who continued to worship idols would be wiped out, Malachi 3:2, Malachi 4:1. After the sinners are purged and GOD allowed the remainder to be accounted righteous through Jesus, GOD would lowered his pompous pride, Isaiah:25:11, breakdown the wall he erected between himself and man, Isaiah 25:12, pardoned man’s iniquity for his own name sake, Isaiah 49:9-11. GOD simply have to accept and his children are pardoned. GOD not only pardon his selected people, but also all men that are accounted righteous, Isaiah 49:5-6, due to Jesus’s immense suffering at the cross.
Isaiah 25:9-12 (author) GOD forgives
9 It will be said on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” 10 For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain, and Moab shall be trampled down in his place, as straw is trampled down in a dunghill. 11 And he will spread out his hands in the midst of it as a swimmer spreads his hands out to swim, but the LORD will lay low his pompous pride together with the skill of his hands. 12 And the high fortifications of his walls he will bring down, lay low, and cast to the ground, to the dust.
Isaiah 40:1-5 (GOD, A voice) punishment completed, iniquity pardoned
1 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. 2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. 3 A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Isaiah 48:9-11 (GOD) GOD forgive men for his name sake
9 “For my name’s sake I defer my anger, for the sake of my praise I restrain it for you, that I may not cut you off. 10 Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. 11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another.
Isaiah 49:5-6 (Jesus, GOD) GOD’s salvation extended to the end of earth.
5 And now the LORD says, he who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him; and that Israel might be gathered to him– for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD, and my God has become my strength– 6 he says: “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
Malachi 4:1 (GOD) arrogant and evildoers eradicated.
1 “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.
Isaiah 54:10 (GOD) GOD promise everlasting covenant of peace. 10 For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
Elias, Malachi 4:5-6
