Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail. (Isaiah 51:6)
Ain't the day near when the above prophesy will be fulfilled? Everything seems to be going on as usual though. Countries and country heads are laboring to establish peace. Terrorists and unholy elements are working in the reverse. Economic ups and downs, the rat race being slowed just a bit and giving way for the arms race. Global warming is taking it's toll on this earth that was created by God Almighty. As the Word prophesies, so it will be: the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies.
We read in the book of Joel:
Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand - a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was of old nor ever will be in ages to come. (Joel 2:1, 2)
But there's the silver lining to this dark cloud prophesy. God says,
But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail.
To you who have believed in the triune God and accepted Jesus as your personal Savior and are living for him, the sun of righteousness will shine permanently.
The Bible says,
"Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire," says the LORD Almighty. "Not a root or a branch will be left to them. But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. (Malachi 4:1,2)
May the Holy Spirit of God prepare each one of us who have believed in Jesus for that glorious day when we meet our Lord and Savior and be with him forever.
