“Go and tell Ebed-Melech the Cushite, ‘This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel says: I am about to fulfill my words against this city through disaster, not prosperity. At that time they will be fulfilled before your eyes. But I will rescue you on that day, declares the LORD, you will not be handed over to those you fear. I will save you; you will not fall by the sword but will escape with your life, because you trust in me, declares the LORD'”
The plan of salvation is throughout Scripture – Old and New Testaments. Here we see it again. These verses are like the Book of Revelation rolled into a few words. The LORD will bring his wrath upon the earth as promised, but those who belong to Christ will not be handed over to the enemy, for God has saved them from eternal destruction, and granted them eternal life in Christ.
