What is it we’re expecting to happen when Jesus returns?
Kind of a loaded question, I know.
Isaiah 11 is the famous lion and the lamb chapter. It speaks of Jesus entering into the world and judging the world with righteousness and justice. Isaiah says that Jesus will take up the cause of the oppressed of the land.
Righteousness will be a belt around his hips; faithfulness will be a belt around his waist.
How will this come to pass? How will we go from a world that is entirely out of control to a world filled with righteousness?
When Jesus returns, the world will be filled with the knowledge and presence of God. Isaiah 11 vs. 9 puts it this way:
“They will not harm or destroy each other on my entire holy mountain, for the land will be as full of the knowledge of the Lord as the sea is filled with water.” CSB
Imagine a place where we completely understand and comprehend who God is and what he is all about. That elusive knowledge that we can only imagine having today when Jesus returns, Jesus will provide us with a complete understanding of God.
That will be quite a day!
