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.
