“The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many peoples shall 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 His ways and that we may walk in His paths.’ For out of Zion shall go the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:1-3).
Is this what you are seeking? Is this what I am seeking? To go to God and have Him teach us His ways so that we can walk in His paths? We must seek Him diligently in faith (Hebrews 11:6). It is not in us to direct our own steps (Jeremiahs 10:23).
Here is Isaiah’s invitation: “O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the LORD” (Isaiah 2:5).
This should remind us of John’s words in 1 John 1:5-10, “This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”
Isaiah tells us that God will be exalted over the wicked of this earth in 2:11 and 2:17 when he writes “the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.”
Are we following God’s teaching? Are we walking in His light? Will we humble ourselves so that He will exalt us (1 Peter 5:6)? Or will we continue in sin and be brought low by God (1 Peter 5:5b)?
To GOD be the glory in heaven and earth!
