Reading Isiah’s prophecy about a future day in history this morning during “coffee with the Lord” provoked deep gratitude in my heart for our spiritual heritage as Christians in Israel’s history! We can be thankful for Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, King David and many others who forged a rich legacy of faith for us that ultimately led to our Lord Jesus Christ! In Isaiah’s passage, he prophetically pointed to a wonderful future day when that heritage will have prominence and be celebrated universally! Praise the Lord! Just let me say, I’m eternally grateful for God’s faithful revelation expressed through Israel’s history, all the way to God’s revelation through Christ, and then onward into eternity! Thanks to the covenant keeping Eternal God – the Living God!
Here’s the passage that provoked my grateful reflection… Give it a read – gratefully!
“In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it! Many peoples will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.’ The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem! He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord! (From Isaiah 2 NIV)
