Isaiah 66:15-24 "For behold, the LORD will come in fire, and his chariots like the whirlwind, to render his anger in fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire...
think about it.
What is the Lord's first promise in these verses (66:15-17)? Why is He going to gather in all the nations (66:18)? What are the "survivors" sent out to do (66:19-21)? What words of hope do you find here for the future?
There are quite a number of scriptures, both in the Old and New Testament, that refer to, preview and/or give us information about end times. I love this aspect of the Bible, how God connects and ties things together throughout His Word. It's intriguing and fascinating, and yes, even a little challenging, but that's a good thing for us--right? Today we're at Isaiah 66:15-24 and this is good example of one of these passages. What we're reading is prophecy about end times and specifically God's judgment and a time when all mankind will see the glory of the Lord.
So how do you see this passage fit with what we're reading in Revelation? Was there a particular passage, verse or phrase that reinforced or helped you better understand something you read in Revelation? Tami W.
