Mountains – Day 29
Many of us feel that we are in the last days. It seems that the world is becoming crazier by the day. Biblical principles are being totally disregarded by governments in most parts of the world. World authorities are not just disregarding God, but openly working in the opposite direction.
In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised 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 house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths.”
Many of us feel that we are in the last days, as it seems that the world is becoming crazier by the day. Biblical principles are being totally disregarded by governments in most parts of the world. In fact many world authorities are not just disregarding God’s principles, but openly working in the opposite direction.
But in today’s verse we have an encouraging promise about a last days event telling us that people all over the world will be seeking to hear what God has to say about things.
In one of my Bibles there is a note saying that in scriptural interpretation a mountain can represent an authority or a kingdom. If we think along those lines, then this verse is telling us that at the end of time, The Lord will reign above all earthly powers.
The people we see as “earthly powers” today are those who are not submitted to Jesus as King. They are, whether they know it or not, being influenced by satan who is desperately trying to stop people getting to Heaven.
Towards the end of the New Testament, we read the following. The one who does what is sinful is of the the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. (1 John 3:8).
We know about what Jesus did and how He destroyed satan’s work. When He left the earth, He left that mission to us (Matthew 28:18-20 & Mark 16). Let’s do it!
Pray today for leaders of your local community and your nation. Pray that they have a revelation of the truth, and turn to Jesus for help while there is still time.
