Peace

Isa 26:3  You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.

The Mountain of the Lord

Isa 2:1  The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

Isa 2:2  Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the LORD’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it.

Isa 2:3  Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Isa 2:4  He shall judge between the nations, And rebuke many people; 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.

Isa 2:5  O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the LORD.

This is a prophecy concerning the end times here and again in Micah:

The Mountain of the Lord

Mic 4:1  Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the LORD’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And peoples shall flow to it.

Mic 4:2  Many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the law shall go forth, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Mic 4:3  He shall judge between many peoples, And rebuke strong nations afar off; 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.

Mic 4:4  But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, And no one shall make them afraid; For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.

Mic 4:5  For all people walk each in the name of his god, But we will walk in the name of the LORD our God Forever and ever.

The Lord Shall Rescue Zion

Mic 4:6  “In that day,” says the LORD, “I will assemble the lame, I will gather the outcast And those whom I have afflicted;

Mic 4:7  I will make the lame a remnant, And the outcast a strong nation; So the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on, even forever.

Mic 4:8  And you, O tower of the flock, The stronghold of the daughter of Zion, To you shall it come, Even the former dominion shall come, The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.”

I’m reading in the book of Isaiah, sixty-six chapters, as there are sixty-six books in the Bible. I’ve heard it said that if a person reads Isaiah, they will read a synopsis of the entire Bible.

In Isaiah 53, the Messiah is described and Jesus fits that description. How I needed a savior when I was young. Now that Jesus is my Lord and Savior, how I need the Holy Spirit to comfort me in the middle of the sorrows that come upon me and all of mankind when evil has its way.

So, I pray for those close to me and for those that I may never know, when I hear tragedies in America and around the world. The only way to avoid being cast into despair is to cast my cares upon God Who cares for me, as directed in 1 Peter 5:7. Not only does He comfort me, but He comforts whomever calls upon His name.

He promises that those who call upon the name of Jesus will be saved, in Act_2:21, (NKJV),  AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS THAT WHOEVER CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.’

Having Jesus love you and call you His very own imparts peace, and fills the longing of the heart that searches for more.

I hope that you are well. May God bless you!

Another Movie for Thought

theyoungmessiah_05Last night, my husband and I, and my sister watched a DVD entitled, “Young Messiah” presented by Focus Features, a Comcast Company in association with Ocean Blue Entertainment, a 1492 Pictures/CJ Enterprise Production distributed by Universal with imaginings of what Jesus’ life would have been like at age seven.

When I saw the hills of Jerusalem, an urge to visit there rose up within me. So, tonight I

 

saw a lady that traveled to Israel with a group earlier this year.

 

She said it revolutionized her life to walk the “Stations of the Cross” and at one place to bear the cross until it was time to pass it on to another.

 

If I don’t get to Jerusalem in this life time, eventually there will be a new heaven and a new earth with a new Jerusalem as described in Revelation 21 and the beginning of Revelation 22.

 

The movie, “Young Messiah” showed the times, the culture, spiritual warfare up close, miracles and family unity.

 

 

 

Every time Jesus faced danger, I thought, it’s not His time to die yet.

 

God has a plan for us, according to Jeremiah 29:11, to give us hope and a future.

 

May God bless you!
