Psalm 48:6 “Trembling seized them there, agony like that of a woman in labor,”
The residents of the United States are presently feeling the labor pains, and “labor” is mirrored in the loss of jobs that is causing the domino effect as the U.S. economy continues its collapse into the pit of despair.
Isaiah 13:8 “They will be horrified; pain and agony will seize [them]; they will be in anguish like a woman in labor. They will look at each other, their faces flushed with fear.”
Satan asks this question, because no one dominates our Warrior Father Yahweh:
Psalm 13:2 “How long will I store up anxious concerns within me, agony in my mind every day? How long will my enemy dominate me?” For as long as it takes… to make a footstool out of your children Satan.
