The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
God’s mountain – Zion, the Church that Jesus Christ founded and builds will stand firm in these last days of unmitigated conflicts. It will emerge out of the ruins and become the only beacon of hope, the lighthouse beckoning the war weary nations to come and find refuge under its shadows. At least peace will prevail, evil will be vanquished, and the people of God will be ushered into everlasting blessedness.
