Discussion for Isaiah 29:18

  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 18
    Whenever the words "in that Day" are used in the Bible, that denotes the last days just before the Messiah sets up His Kingdom. Jesus said on the Sermon on the Mount, the meek shall inherit the earth, and that is when this prophecy will be fulfilled. Right now the nation of Israel is blinded to the gospel, but in that day they will have a clear saving knowledge of the truth. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light, no man comes to the Father except by Jesus.
