DCLM Daily Manna 9 February 2022 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — The Lord’s House
TOPIC: The Lord’s House (DCLM Daily Manna 9 February 2022)
TEXT: Isaiah 2:1-9 (KJV)
1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.
6 Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
9 And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
KEY VERSE: “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.” – (Isaiah 2:2)
Mountains are an eloquent and monumental testimonies of the sublimity of God’s creative power. The world is dotted with many significant mountains, some of which have scriptural and prophetic roles. Mountains have also been used figuratively to signify some sacred realities.
When, in today’s text, we read about “the mountain of the Lord’s house” being “established in the top of the mountains,” it is quite symbolic. It points to the institution of Christ’s Church into which people from all nations would flock. Isaiah stated that the mountain of the Lord’s house would be firmly established above every power. Truly, Christianity, with the preaching of the gospel, has positively impacted the world as nothing else has. It has brought sons and daughters unto God from all nations and withstood numerous crushing oppositions.
The prophecy also alludes to the deplorable case of the Jewish church that had given itself to the wickedness of superstition, idolatry and covetousness. Their rejection of Christ, the Messiah, capped it all. The Lord, however, still has a plan for their restoration (Zechariah 12:10).
As predicted, people from all nations are still flowing unto the mountain of the Lord’s house whose door is Jesus Christ. If you have not repented and placed your faith in Him, you have a chance to do so now. This offer may elude you if you delay any longer. If you are already saved, it is incumbent on you to join the evangelism train. You are to use every means at your disposal to tell others about Christ.
