2 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. 3 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. 4 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. 5 Come, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the Lord.
“In the last days…” For many years, I have heard so many prophecies of “when” this will be, might be, etc… but as a child of God, I can trust and rest in the fact that only God knows. He is in control and in preparation.
V 3 says: Many people will come and say…”come, let’s go up to the mountain of the Lord…” This makes me wonder could we be too distracted or too busy with the “world” that I don’t hear the call? Am I prioritising Church, gathering together, Connect Group, reading, praying, worshipping, to ensure that I hear…. It goes on to say that He will teach us His ways, SO THAT WE MAY WALK IN HIS PATHS.
We can look forward to one day Jesus will be revealed to all as The King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He will rule. His Church will be established as the highest of the mountains.
What I love about this is in V4. There will be no more armies, navies, airforce – no longer will nations be fighting or training for war or buying arms or submarines! Peace will come.
My question is: Are we in preparation?
Lord Jesus you love everyone. Give us all a passion for your House and for your Kingdom. May it become our priority to see your Kingdom come and Your will be done. Amen
