Discussion for Isaiah 2

    Verse 2 - "Mountain" means city. The City of the Lord shall be established above all cities in the world, and all nations will go there. God is going to build a great city for his glory.

    Jerusalem is mentioned and nothing is said indicating that Palestinian people have any right to it or that ownership will change in the end time. God gives Jerusalem to whom He pleases and that city is special to Him, especially in the end time and that is where Christ will return and rule from there. So who have eyes to see, and ears to hear , take heed.
  • B. Lever
    Verse 4 gives me such hope it is almost incomprehensible. Today's world is so far off that mark; seems demonic forces are everywhere. Truly only He can make nations abandon war. Peace and Righteousness directly from the Prince of Peace. It can't come soon enough for me.

  • Brianna vs. 4
    Hope for the future. Jehovah keeps account of what is happening on the earth. This verse says he has to set matters right respecting many people. We may not receive justice now, but God is aware of the offense and he will correct the wrong. He also promises peace and an end to violence.
