BEAUTIFUL FEET

OBSERVATION: THEOLOGICALLY AND FIGURATIVELY, THE WORD ZION APPLIED TO ISRAEL AS THE PEOPLE OF GOD (ISAIAH 60:14)

INTERPRETATION: ISAIAH 52:7 (NKJV) ) HOW BEAUTIFUL UPON THE MOUNTAINS ARE THE FEET OF HIM WHO BRINGS GOOD NEWS, WHO PROCLAIMS PEACE, WHO BRINGS GLAD TIDING OF GOOD THINGS, WHO PROCLAIMS SALVATION, WHO SAY TO ZION, YOUR GOD REIGNS!

POINTS TO PONDER:

THE DEFEAT OF BABYLON BY KING CYRUS WAS GOOD NEWS FOR THE JEWS. THE LORD ALLOWED HOSTILE BABYLONIA TO ENSLAVE ISRAEL BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN AGAINST HIM. ALTHOUGH CYRUS WAS A NON-BELIEVER, THE JEWS FOUND FAVOR UNDER HIS REIGN. HE ASSISTED THE JEWS IN REBUILDING THE JERUSALEM TEMPLE. IN ADDITION, HE PERMITTED TEMPLE WORSHIP, WHICH WAS DORMANT FOR SEVENTY YEARS.

THE MESSAGE WAS A MESSAGE OF PEACE, HAPPINESS AND SALVATION. NOTHING WAS LEFT HANGING, UNDONE, UNRESOLVED. IT WAS A MESSAGE OF FREEDOM FROM BONDAGE CAUSED BY SINS AGAINST YAHWEH (THE TRUE GOD).

WHEN GOD REIGNS, PEACE REIGNS. WHEN GOD REIGNS, GLAD TIDING REIGN. WHEN GOD REIGNS, SALVATION REIGNS!

THE LORD IS BEHIND ALL HISTORY AND CONTROLS ALL POWER ON EARTH!

APPLICATION: THE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU TODAY IS THAT CHRIST CAN SET YOU FREE FROM THE CAPTIVITY OF SATAN. ROMANS 10:15 (NASB) HOW WILL THEY PREACH UNLESS THEY ARE SENT? JUST AS IT IS WRITTEN, HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS. FOR DECADES, THE JEWS WERE CAPTIVE BUT NOW THEY COULD RESTORE ALL THEY LOST IN CAPTIVITY. THE SAME APPLIES TO YOU TODAY!
