Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 2 (ESV)

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

It shall come to pass in the latter days
    that the mountain of the house of the Lord
shall be established as the highest of the mountains,
    and shall be lifted up above the hills;
and all the nations shall flow to it,
    and many peoples shall come, and say:
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
    to the house of the God of Jacob,
that he may teach us his ways
    and that we may walk in his paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
    and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between the nations,
    and shall decide disputes for many peoples;
and 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....Continue Reading

  1. 17 And the haughtiness of man shall be humbled,
    and the lofty pride of men shall be brought low,
    and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
    18 And the idols shall utterly pass away.
    19 And people shall enter the caves of the rocks
    and the holes of the ground,
    from before the terror of the Lord,
    and from the splendor of his majesty,
    when he rises to terrify the earth.

  2. The last days will bring blessings for some and terror for others. He will teach those that are humble and radically change the way the world works. To me, these first verses make reference to the millennial reign of Christ. Isaiah then moves on in the chapter to talk about the day of the Lord. It is a very significant concept in the Old Testament prophets. It is a “day” in the sense of set of circumstances as opposed to a 24 hour period. And it is at that time when God will turn the tables and establish His justice on the earth. He will humble the proud and exalt the humble. He will judge and vanquish evil and He will establish and promote righteousness and justice. For those who have followed God’s way it will be a time of vindication and joy. Fo those that didn’t, they will try to hide from Him, but they will not be able to. His glory is too great.
