As God brings several lessons through the same message, He may also have several fulfillments of the same message.
This was true in the promise of restoration of the land God gave to Isaiah.
Isaiah 35: 1-2
The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;
It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice,
Even with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
The excellence of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the glory of the Lord,
The excellency of our God.
- Judah was restored after the invasion of the Assyrians was turned back.
- During the end of the 19th century as the Jewish people returned to the land, the deserts began to blossom. Today farms and flowers cover what had been as wilderness and wasteland for centuries.
- The promise will ultimately be fulfilled when God restores all of creation after the end of the great tribulation and the battle of Armageddon.
PRAISE GOD FOR FULFILLING HIS PROMISES TO RESTORE THE LAND AND THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
