In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s house will be established as the highest of the mountains and raised above the hills. All the nations will stream to it. Then many people will come and say, “Let’s go to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways so that we may live by them.” The teachings will go out from Zion. The word of the LORD will go out from Jerusalem.
The prophecy is clear.
There is and will be a calling of Gentiles to come to know God.
These are people like me- not Jews by race or birth but called to come to know the God of Israel who is Almighty God, king of the universe.
It says of how God will be so prominent and undeniable – like the highest of mountains and many will come to learn of His ways and so doing, live as His people.
This could happen either through the widespread preaching and teaching of the Scriptures.
It could also happen that an awakening comes upon mankind whereby signs and wonders point them to who God is and what He has done and it convicts their hearts to follow after God.
Or it could also happen if God’s people – His church – lives life in such a way that others wonder “How is it possible that he has such faith/such peace/such courage in the face of life’s obstacles?” and become interested in learning the Lord’s ways for their life too!
How about it?
Are you ready to be the mountain that stands so evidently for others -to witness to what God is doing in your life as you experience life change every day through His leading in your life???
People will wonder –
“He used to be hot tempered but look at him now!”
“She used to be a gossiper but look how she minds her words now!”
Live a transformed life by God’s hands.
It’s a great witness to the world.
