On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken. (Isaiah 25:6-8 ESV)
In the midst of injustice throughout the land, and a terrifying threat coming from a vast army to the North, these words took great faith to believe. But to those who were faithful, they fill with hope. For us, we have an amazing picture of the end to which redemption points.
Let us pray as they will say on that day, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord; we have waited for him; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” (Isaiah 25:9 ESV)
