After the rebellious nations are destroyed, the glorious kingdom
of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is introduced.
Features of that period include increased fertility of the land & the
personal presence of the Lord in glory & excellence.
There will be mutual encouragement among the saints.
Every type of disability will be removed & great rejoicing will celebrate
the transformation of the desert into well-irrigated fields.
The hundreds of miles of desert route from exile back to Jerusalem will become
a “Highway of Holiness,” exclusive to God’s believers
The return of Israel from worldwide dispersion prepictures
the joy & gladness that will accompany the translation of believers
to the Father’s house when Jesus comes again.
A. J. Gordon’s adapted this verse for a hymns:
I shall see the King in His beauty,
In the land that is far away,
When the shadows at length have lifted,
And the darkness has turned to day.
I shall see Him in the glory,
The Lamb that once was slain;
How I’ll then resound the story
With all the ransomed train!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah!
To the Lamb that once was slain;
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
Even so come Lord Jesus
Even so come!!!
