8833 threats

Intimidating announcements of action to be taken unless conditions are met. God uses threats against tyrannical and disobedient earthly rulers as a means of restoring them to obedience and humility in his sight. God’s people are not to threaten others and though the wicked will sometimes seek to intimidate them, they are to rely on God’s protection.
