Notice again the distinction between the gentiles and the remnant.
The "remnant" will behave in a way which will "tread down and tear in pieces" the gentiles. As they do this, "none can deliver" the gentiles.
Unlike the previous slaughter of the remnant by the gentiles, this time it is the gentiles who are slaughtered at the hands of the remnant. Those who are "enemies" to the remnant will all be "cut off." What does "cut off" mean?
The woes of that coming time can all be avoided by the gentiles - predicated upon their willingness to "repent." So we return again to the recurring question of what it means to "repent?" How can "repentance" be the only means by which the gentiles survive the slaughter? What is it about gentile repentance that spares them from the wrath that is to be otherwise poured out upon them?
What symbol comes to mind when you think of "horses?" What does cutting out the horses symbolize?
Does the symbol of the "horses" and the symbol of the "chariots" go together? That is, does cutting out the horses and destroying the chariots express a single thought? If it does, what do the horses and chariots symbolize? How vulnerable is the American military might to destruction? What effect would symbolically destroying the horses and chariots of the American population have?
If the United States is to be engulfed in domestic violence, will it continue to have foreign military influence? Economic influence? Social and cultural influence?
Assuming the gentile population is swept away, trodden under foot and torn in pieces, what culture and social influence will remain?
What symbol does the lion among the beasts of the forest suggest? The young lion among the sheep? What is the difference between the beasts of the forest and the sheep? If both beasts and sheep are gentiles, then are the beasts different than the sheep? What sort of person called a gentile "beast" will be swept away? What kind of person called a gentile "sheep" will be torn in pieces? Why would both gentile beasts and gentile sheep need to "repent?" Does repentance of a "beast" and repentance of "sheep" take the same form? Why would both need repentance when they are so remarkably different in symbol? Is it enough alone to be a gentile sheep?
What message is being sent by this warning?
