Remember how in time past we were not a people my friend, but now we’re the people of God: we had not obtained mercy, but now we have obtained mercy. Isaiah said; "The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined," Isaiah 9:2.
We’re not perfected as yet. Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in our vexation.
Anyway, let’s move on. Here he said, "It shall come to pass in that day...the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil," Isaiah 10:27.
He said, "And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and might; the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord," Isaiah 11:2.
In His days, Christ’s days, our days, all the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, He is a banner of salvation and of peace, justice and equity, righteousness and faithfulness to all the world. He himself has set up that banner, his own cross for the nations.
Isaiah said, "Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart, And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, And Judah shall not harass Ephraim," Isaiah 11:13. They’ll be no reason for quarrels because they’ll altogether become one; "one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all," Ephesians 4:4-6.
In these days of the Lord, He himself is standing as a banner to the people, the people will see and flow/dwell together and endeavour to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid," John 14:27.
When we say peace, some believers become afraid because they associate peace with the end of times, but Christ said, "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." Why? Because it’s His peace, not that the world gives. He said, "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD As the waters cover the sea," Isaiah 11:9.
Someone is asking where is that peace? Isaiah 11:11 says, "It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left..." And His resting place shall be glorious.
God bless you,
