Trodding a Winepress

As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.

This was my Bible reading from the Holy Ghost, expanded this time, beyond the Arm of the Lord bringing Salvation to the red stained clothes trodding the winepress.

 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.
Isaiah the Prophet chapter 63

I found this online sermon and it is fitting in the explanation.

Back here in the sixty-third chapter of Isaiah, "Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah?" [Isaiah 63:1].  And the blood of that carnage was by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs – – a furlong is an eighth of a mile – – two hundred miles.  And the blood of that awful battle of Armageddon, spilled by the millions, and millions, and millions of men who are gathered there at the great day of God, the Book of the Revelation in chapter 9 says that the king of the East, that would be China, has an army of two hundred million men at that great battle [Revelation 9:16].  And the carnage is so great that the blood is to the bridles of the horses by a space of a thousand six hundred furlongs [Revelation 14:20].  From Bozrah to Megiddo, to Armageddon is exactly one thousand six hundred furlongs.  It’s two hundred miles.  The great rendezvous of the nations of the world will be there.  And the mighty intervention of God in human history will be there in the great tribulation, the day of the judgment and vengeance of the Almighty Lord.
