Real Change is Coming

"Now it will come about that in the last days the Mountain of the House of the Lord will be established as the chief of the mountains, and will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it. And 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; That He may teach us concerning His ways and that we may walk in His paths.’ for the Law will go forth from Zion and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem." Isaiah 2:2-3

It seems that every time an election cycle comes around there are those promising change. But it seems the more we "change" the more things stay the same. Obviously, few people are content with the way things are. It was never God’s intention for man to govern himself.

When God delivered Israel out of bondage in Egypt He set them apart to be His own possession. He promised to lead them, to protect them and to provide for them. But at some point the people became discontented with God as their King and demanded to have a king like the heathen nations around them. God granted their request but told them that in rejecting Him as their King many serious problems would arise. Still, the Israelites insisted - they wanted change.

The original sin was basically the first humans choosing to govern themselves. They wanted the knowledge of both good and evil and the authority to determine for themselves what was good or evil. The result was disastrous.

Soon after the flood, when people began to grow in number, they exalted Nimrod to rule over them. He quickly established two capitals for his kingdom, Babylon and Nineveh. Since that time the world has had a bloody history of conflicts and wars. In the almost 6000 years of recorded history there has been less than 300 years of peace. If we can learn from history, one glaring truth cannot be denied - man cannot justly rule himself.

God understands this well and at the appointed time will finally put a stop to the madness. Only God has the power to forgive transgressors, and only the Kingdom of God can stop evil, stop war, destroy death, stop the suffering and pain and free the creation itself from the curse.

 Isaiah 11 says that God will bring about real change even among the animals. They will be no more prey and predators - the lion will lay down with the lamb in that age. The "Mountain of the Lord" in our text is the Government, or Kingdom of God which Jesus will establish on the earth at His return. The "mountains" and "hills" are the governments of the nations which will come to God to learn His Law and His ways.

 In that day God will be King over all and real change will come at last.
