Edifier du Jour-Isaiah 2:2-4(NASB)
2 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. 3 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. 4 And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war.
With war looming in Iraq and Muslim violence so ready to explode in Nigeria that a newpaper column on a beauty pagent can spark riots killing hundreds, it seem Pollyannaish to look forward to a day where there will be no need for weapons. Dubya won't bring it about and Kofi Annan can only dream of pulling this off. However, there will be a day were we won't study war no more, as the old hippie ditty went. But it won't come with the help of the UN or the EU or Jimmy Carter, it will only come when Jesus come back for his encore. Take a moment and get a warm fuzzy thinking about it. Turning tanks into SUVs, Harriers into crop-dusters, AK47s into lightposts. It's going to happen, and we believers will get to see it happen.
