Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 22 - Morning

"This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning
Judah and Jerusalem:

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.

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.
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.

Come, descendants of Jacob,
let us walk in the light of the Lord."

- Isaiah 2:1-5

Follow the Lord Today. All the World Will Follow Him in the Future!    

Isaiah appeals to unfaithful Israel of his day in verse 2:5 saying,

“Come, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the Lord.”

He says this after having presented them the prophetic logic found in verses 2:1-4. The Lord their God is the one to follow today because he will eventually be the one the whole world seeks when all has been revealed in the end and his kingdom is established.

Isaiah proclaims these things about the future age called “the last days” which is literally “in the afterward of these days.” In the mind of the modern Western man we view time future as being before us. We walk into the future with our backs to the past. The Hebrew mind visualized time in the opposite way. They saw themselves as always facing the past (since they could actually see or know the past) and walking backward into the future with the backs towards the future (since it was unknown and unseen). “In the last days” is used as a technical term for the days at the end of time in Jeremiah 48:47; 49:39; Ezekiel 38:16; Daniel 10:14 and Hosea 3:5.

In those future days Isaiah says it will be clear that YHWH was the true God and his ways were the right ways. Isaiah says:

Mount Moriah with the Temple of the Lord standing on it will be

  • Established as the highest mountain
  • Exalted above the hills

This seems to speak of a literal change in the topography (Zechariah 14:10; Ezekiel 40:2), but is also an indication that all the other religious systems and philosophies have been defeated and proven inadequate.

After it has been made clear that the Lord is the Way, the Truth and the Life, all nations will come to him seeking his teaching and his instruction so they can prosper and succeed as he has.

From Zion (Mount Moriah or the Temple Mount) the Word of the Lord will go out into the world.
The nations will come to the Lord’s presence in Jerusalem for resolution of international conflicts.
The wisdom in the Lord’s international advice and legal decisions will be so successful that nations will convert their weaponry into agricultural equipment to be used for production rather than destruction.

Isaiah’s point to the people of his generation is simple and clear. If this is the power of the Lord’s presence, wisdom, and counsel in the future we should pay attention to it today! Since God has already revealed himself to Israel, should we not follow him? Why do we rebel against the one who will be sought by the world when he reveals himself to them? Israel has a great opportunity to have a head start, but instead they are choosing to forsake the Lord and instead follow the worthless and empty gods of the pagan world.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"The heretics stitch together a multitue of lies and figments so that they might appear to be acting in accordance with reason in their not accepting the Scriptures."
- Clement of Alexandria,
195 AD
Something to Ponder??

Tertullian said this in 207 AD:

"In Greek, the root meaning of 'repentance' is not the 'confession of a sin' - but a 'change of mind.' "

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Sod (Hb) - secret (Eng) - The Hebrew word sod appears 21x
(5x in Proverbs, 6x in Psalms, 4x in Jeremiah, etc.)
- Psalm 25:14
- Amos 3:7
Sod is used to refer to the Lords heavenly council (sod) and eternal plans (sod) as in Psalm 82:1.
Jeremiah claims that a prophet must have stood in the sod, “council” of Yahweh.” (Jer. 23:18, 22)


The darkness over the land at the time of Jesus' death described in Luke 23:44-46 is preserved in historical writings of the pagan world from that time. Writing in 221 AD, Julius Africanus refers to the words of Thallus from 52 AD
when Thallus wrote
his book “History”:

“On the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness; and the rocks were rent by an earthquake, and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down.  This darkness Thallus, in the third book of his History calls, as appears to me without reason, an
eclipse of the sun."
