The Vision of Isaiah 2:1-5 Soon to be Fulfilled

The vision of Isaiah 2:1-5 depicts the aftermath of the Battle of Armageddon, when Jesus will have returned to establish the Kingdom of God upon the earth, with the Temple built and Jesus will be reigning as King / Priest on the Throne of David in Jerusalem. The significant remnant of the Jews will be converted and the surrounding nations subjected. These nations will come up to Jerusalem to worship and to learn God’s ways.

Isaiah 2:1–5 (KJV): 1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

Events have been happening slowly, but the pace may quicken up and we need to be prepared for the return of Jesus. The Temple was destroyed in AD 70, and the Jews were taken into captivity and Jerusalem had been trodden down by the Gentiles for most of the last 2000 years Luke 21:24. But there has been a gradual progress towards the fulfilment of Isaiah 2. There have been many contributing factors, and many milestones. Mentioning a few, there was Theodor Herzl and his advocacy of a Jewish State in 1897, the Balfour Declaration in 1917, the gradual return of the Jews to the Holy Land as prophesied, the formation of the State of Israel 1947-1948, the recapture of Jerusalem in 1967 in fulfilment of the 2300 years of Daniel 8:13-14. We have yet to determine the outcome of the present troubles, and most probably things will settle down for a while, but possibly it will set up and precipitate the events surrounding the Battle of Armageddon.

Blessed is he that watches and loves the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ who will soon come to establish the Kingdom of God upon the earth as prophesied in Isaiah 2:1-5, Revelation 16:15, 2 Timothy 4:1,6-8.

Kind regards

Amen. The prophecy clock is spinning so fast it is producing a breeze. :)


In the last 5 years we've seen signs that those that came before us longed to see.
  • We've seen Israel and Sheba become friendly if not friends
  • We've seen Brexit
  • We've seen Jerusalem recognized as the capital of Israel
  • We've seen the realignment of the middle east to the north/south axis.
  • We are living through what is being called "the Great Reset".
  • Things will get really sporty (as if they aren't already) when Israel visibly becomes a land of unwalled villages.

Whatever plans man has, God has his own. And we should anxiously await God's "Great Reset".

Greetings Stephen,

I appreciate the reminder of all these events that have happened. Yes, the pace of these events foreshadowing the return of Christ is remarkable.
Things will get really sporty (as if they aren't already) when Israel visibly becomes a land of unwalled villages.
I doubt that this has anything to do with the border fence of Israel or the walls separating parts of the West Bank from Israel. I think it may already be the present status where the whole land is populated and many parts are agricultural land in contrast to the old concept of fortress cities with impregnable walls with strong gates to keep out invading hordes or armies, and the need to withdraw inside the cities when an invader was in the vicinity.

I suggest that there are a few other pieces of the jigsaw that may need to be in place before Christ's return, but there is a range of opinions on some of this detail in our community and I am a bit reserved airing some these ideas here. For example what will happen to Turkey or Constantinople (actually Istanbul)? I prefer to discuss these in our local Christadelphian environment and not among those who do not accept many of our basic ideas of the Kingdom and our understanding of prophecy in general.

Kind regards
Trevor

I agree. There are some topics that require a depth of knowledge before the discussion can begin. The status of Turkey is one of those topics. Turkey is in an interesting position. As a part of NATO but not a part of the EU, and with Russia making moves in the various nations around the Black Sea. How does that tension resolve itself into the prophetic picture?

As a watcher on the sidelines, it is a boon to my faith. As Dr. Thomas says, what will happen will not be what the nations intend to do, but they will do what God has said they will do.
