Isaiah 2:1-3 ESV
The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
It shall come to pass in the latter days
that the mountain of the house of the Lord
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
and shall be lifted up above the hills;
and all the nations shall flow to it,
and many peoples shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
In the latter days? What are those? They are the Messianic age, and the Messianic age includes the days since the birth of Jesus Christ until he returns for us, his bride, and beyond that for eternity, I believe. But, the latter days are specific to the days before Jesus returns. Thus, the terminology here must be understood in light of the Messianic age.
Therefore, the mountain of the house of the Lord is not in physical Jerusalem, in the physical nation of Israel. For, Jerusalem is no longer the Holy City of God. We who believe in Jesus are that city. We are heavenly Jerusalem. We are the heirs of the promise God made to Abraham, not the Jews, unless they believe in Jesus. And, that is because Jesus alone is the promised seed of Abraham through whom all nations are to be blessed (See: Rom. 9:6-8; Gal. 3:10, 16, 26-29; Gal. 4:22-31; Eph. 2:14-18; 1 Jn. 2:22).
And, the house of the Lord is no longer a physical place, but it is the hearts of all those who have put their trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and as Savior. And, Jesus Christ is Zion, as is his church. So, the “mountain” that shall be established as the highest of all mountains is Jesus Christ.
And all the nations will flow to Him. And, He will teach the people His ways that we might all walk in His paths. For, the law goes out from Jesus Christ, because he is the fulfillment of the law. This is really important that we understand this. This is about people of all nations flocking to Jesus Christ in these last days before Jesus returns so that they can learn the ways of the Lord that they may walk in them. Do I get an “Amen!”? Hallelujah!
Isaiah 2:4 ESV
He shall judge between the nations,
and shall decide disputes for many peoples;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore.
This may be talking about the 1000-year reign of Christ on the earth after the time of tribulation is past. But, I don’t believe it is out of context to look at this in another way, too, especially as you read on in the chapter.
For, God is displeased with his adulterous people. He was then, and he is now, only now they are Christians, not Jews. They are Christians who have wandered off from their pure devotion to Jesus Christ and who have been going after the gods and the pleasures of this world, instead. And, they have been following after man-made religion, too, instead of being led by the Spirit of God, with Christ as their only head.
The Lord sent his messengers to his people then to warn them of divine judgment if they did not repent of their wicked ways, and to confront them with their adulterous and idolatrous ways, and to call them to repentance and obedience to the Lord, and to promise them God’s restoration of them, and of his blessings to them, if they repented, and if they returned to him.
And, he has sent his messengers in our day and time, too, for the very same purpose. And, I know I am one of them. That is my calling, and has been since 2004.
And, the message the Lord has given me has been to call his church to come out of “Babylon,” i.e. out of the worldly market-driven church married to the government, and to return to him as her only head. And, he has been giving me many messages warning of divine judgment, too, if the church did not, and if she did not repent of her wicked ways and follow Him in obedience.
Well, now that judgment is upon us, I believe. And, its intended purpose is to get the wandering church to leave man-made religion, to forsake her idols and her adulterous ways, to return to her Lord, and to now follow Him in obedience to his ways.
And, what better way to make that happen than to close down the doors of the institutional churches so that Christians can no longer gather together in these buildings and institutions of men.
The world is now in a crisis situation at the hands of our enemies. But, our enemies aren’t all foreign to us. They are the enemy within. They are our government leaders, some of our pastors, our neighbors, our friends, and our family members, etc.
But, the ones who are bringing us into this crisis situation are our leaders who are among the wealthy and powerful people of this world whose intention it is to force us all into compliance with the New World Order of the beast (of Revelation). For, this is what this is all about, I guarantee you, whether they carry this to the finish line at this juncture or not.
And, this is what I believe the Lord is showing me here. The way this whole “virus” thing went down, and the speed at which it has escalated, with very minimal if any concrete evidence that the statistics they are throwing at us daily actually are legitimate, is just beyond human comprehension. This is beyond belief, in other words.
I believe the Lord has given me discernment that the virus at least began as a farce and still may be (I believe so), and that it is the cover (the excuse) for what their real objective is and that is to destroy our way of life, to crash our economies, and to bring us all down to a third world level (end game). And, that once they have accomplished their goal of bringing us all down, the virus will die out. It will disappear once the end goal is complete.
And, right now they are really rushing this to accomplish that goal in speedy time. And, this virus is their weapon forged against us just as though they were shooting us with guns or stabbing us with knives. This virus is their chosen weapon of warfare to conquer us and to supplant our present forms of government with the one world order of the beast.
But, I am not asking you to believe me just because I said so. I want all of you who are walking in faithful obedience to the Lord, and who regularly follow the leading of the Spirit to please pray through what I have shared with you here, and ask the Lord to show you what is going on, in reality, in our nations and in the world.
Ask him to help you to see this world crisis through his eyes. And, don’t fear him speaking to you through dreams or visions or real life parables, for this may be his way of making his will known to us, i.e. to show us how prophecy of scripture is being fulfilled before our eyes right now.
Isaiah 2:5 ESV
O house of Jacob,
come, let us walk
in the light of the Lord.
With all my heart, I believe that God has allowed all of this to take place, i.e. all which we are presently going through with this made up virus. And, he is allowing it in order to save people’s lives from hell and to get his church ready to meet him when he returns. So, this is ultimately for our good, if we are willing to see it that way.
I hope and pray we will all see that God is in this and that he has purposed this for us at this time, and it is for our benefit that this happens.
So, the call is the same as it always is. Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord and in his truth. Let us all forsake any adulterous or idolatrous ways, or any apathy or worldliness, or anything that might keep us from being effective in our walks with the Lord and in our witness for him to the world around us. May we all take God and this situation seriously, and do what he is calling us to do. Not one of us knows if we have tomorrow.
Soldiers of Christ Arise
Lyrics by Charles Wesley, pub. 1741
Soldiers of Christ, arise, and put your armor on,
Strong in the strength which God supplies, through His Eternal Son.
Strong in the Lord of Hosts, and in His mighty power,
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts is more than conqueror.
Stand then in His great might, with all His strength endued,
But take, to arm you for the fight, the panoply of God;
That, having all things done, and all your conflicts passed,
Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone and stand entire at last.
Leave no unguarded place, no weakness of the soul;
Take every virtue, every grace, and fortify the whole.
From strength to strength go on; wrestle, and fight, and pray;
Tread all the powers of darkness down and win the well-fought day.
