What is this verse talking about found in the first Psalm? “The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.” When we look back and the prophecies of scripture, we can see the connection pointing to the Day of the Lord, a day described as a day of blood, smoke, and fire.” And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.” Joel 2:30 (KJV).

A friend and I were asking the question last week “Why you suppose we need nuclear bombs?” The answer was clear; it is awaiting the Day of the Lord. On that day the Lord will rain down on his enemies hail from the skies, and the one weapon we have capable of creating such an atmospheric change is a nuclear bomb. Just listen to this warning from Isaiah:
“Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. 11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” Isaiah 13:9 (KJV)
With Iran racing toward a nuclear bomb to challenge Israel, it is only a matter of time before God turn to fight against his enemies saving his people out of the hands of the proud, and the wicked. “Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” Psalms 83:1 (KJV) A Song or Psalm of Asaph.
What is Chaff?
“Chaff is the dry, scaly protective casings of the seeds of cereal grain, or similar fine, dry, scaly plant material such as scaly parts of flowers, or finely chopped straw.” Wikipedia Chaff is the by product, waste that is cast into fire for burning after the valuable seeds are removed from its shell casing. Chaff is good for nothing; and form this explanation we can see that God will deal with his enemies like Chaff and being blow in the wind means he will destroy them utterly with heat.
Psalms 1:4 (KJV) The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
