The hope of a bright new world!

A bright new world

Just finished my Bible reading this morning during “coffee with the Lord”…  Listen, In the troubled, violence-ridden, evil world in which we live it is encouraging to have God’s promise of a wonderful future day for God’s people…  Read the following passage and revel in its encouragement and promises!

“The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus; it shall blossom abundantly and rejoice with joy and singing! …They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God…

“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees.  Say to those who have an anxious heart, ‘Be strong; fear not! Behold, your God will come… He will come and save you!”  Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped;  then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy. For waters break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the burning sand shall become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water…

“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it. It shall belong to those who walk on the way…  No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there.  And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.”  (from Isaiah 35)
