And yet, in the midst of God’s just judgement, there is a remnant who are turning to the Lord God of Israel. God is not only blessing the prophet, but also us today with His promise. All is never lost because God is a God of forgiveness and restoration.
We hear and see in these verses the fulfillment of Jerusalem’s destiny – the spiritual capital of the world!
They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing;
For the majesty of the Lord
They shall cry aloud from the sea.
“Thus says the Lord of hosts:
‘Peoples shall yet come,
Inhabitants of many cities;
The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying,
Let us continue to go and pray before the Lord,
And seek the Lord of hosts.
I myself will go also.”
Yes, many peoples and strong nations
Shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem,
And to pray before the Lord.’
PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS!
