Isaiah 11:1-9
Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot-yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. 2 And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him-the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. 3 He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will never judge by appearance, false evidence, or hearsay. 4 He will defend the poor and the exploited. He will rule against the wicked and destroy them with the breath of his mouth. 5 He will be clothed with fairness and truth. 6 In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together; the leopard and the goat will be at peace. Calves and yearlings will be safe among lions, and a little child will lead them all. 7 The cattle will graze among bears. Cubs and calves will lie down together. And lions will eat grass as the livestock do. 8 Babies will crawl safely among poisonous snakes. Yes, a little child will put its hand in a nest of deadly snakes and pull it out unharmed. 9 Nothing will hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain. And as the waters fill the sea, so the earth will be filled with people who know the Lord.

This is a description of the Millennial rule of Jesus Christ as King of the world.  After the Tribulation (God’s judgment on the earth for rejecting Christ) and the Second Coming of Christ, Jesus will live and rule the world for 1000 years.  Isaiah saw this time in a word from God and wrote about it over 2600 years ago.  Many today look to this time to come after we get things right here on earth. They quote Revelation 21:5 which states, “And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making all things new!” This verse is talking about the time after God judges the world.  The world will go through a terrible time as stated in Isaiah 13:11-13, “I, the Lord, will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their sin. I will crush the arrogance of the proud and the haughtiness of the mighty. 12 Few will be left alive when I have finished my work. People will be as scarce as gold-more rare than the gold of Ophir. 13 For I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move from its place. I, the Lord Almighty, will show my fury and fierce anger.”  Things are not going to get better, they are only get to worse!  So much more worse, that those who live through it will think that what happened on 9/11/01 was a picnic! Don’t be fooled into thinking that God will not do what He said He would.  Judgment is coming for those who reject the One true Branch and that is Jesus Christ the Son of God who died to free us from sin.  Only those who accept His free offer will escape the coming judgment of this world.  It will not get better it will only get worse.  God will make all things new, but only after He has rid the world of evil!  Trust Him today and believe Him that the blood of Christ is all you need to be accepted by God.  Then go and be used by Him to bring others with you into His kingdom!

Have a God Day!
