Cross References Leviticus I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your high ways shall be desolate. Numbers And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Jeremiah For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled; they are gone.
However, it may not be a reference to this at all, since it appears on the surface to be a hypothetical - "IF" - The Lord is saying that no matter how bad a scenario could be dreamed up, no amount of intercessory prayer from some of the greatest OT saints would deliver Israel as a whole. But Noah's kids were old enough to make their own decisions. Lot's children did not follow him. That is the point of the passage.

Whether or not it relates to a future prophecy is speculative, but could tie in with the locusts of Joel, or possibly Rev. I just considered the insect possibility; which, I had to reject along with the others I mentioned because they would not desolate preventing men from passing. Whatever, "noisome beast" is I do believe it has to have some supernatural ability to fill all the description.

So, maybe something like Rev. I'm still leaning toward the "noisome beasts" being men. His initial comment was, men are described as beasts in scripture too. But, then why would God tell Ezekiel he was sending the "sword" as well as "noisome beasts"? It's not a question of Gospel import but, part of a personal study.

I have sheep and have never seen them eat down to the ground and destroy the grass, unless they are confined to a small area. Besides, I suspect sheep would not keep people from being able to pass through the land-they aren't exactly fearsome, save for some of the rams. I suspect something else. One of the things the Lord often used as judgment was locusts-a swarm is quite noiseome, and they definitely will decimate a place, and generally, people don't go wandering into a swarm of them-a massive swarm of locusts would do the trick, I think.
Mike - the point I was trying to make is not that they ARE sheep, but some kind of herding animal in huge numbers. Sheep in a plague style would indeed devastate the land. But would that stop men from passing through?
Only while the swarming herd of whatever is there - OR if the area devastated was hugely massive. But the same goes for locusts. However, the Bible often speaks of locusts, so it is reasonable to assume that if it meant locusts in this case it have said so. Still might be though I have seen film of the results of stampede of huge herds of Buffalo, and there certainly ain't much left after they have gone through - and they aren't even eating it Many animals stampede under certain circumstances.
I'm unsure about the sheep or the locust or any other beast but I 'm sure whatever it may be it will OB ey God. I understand why you say " Clearly, in the context, the day of the LORD is a day of specific judgment, not the final judgment. At the second coming it will be too late for repentance.
