|And it will come about in the last days|
That the mountain of the House of the LORD
Will be established as the chief of the mountains
And it will be raised above the hills
|Victory: Christ established His Kingdom at the first Christmas|
|And the peoples will stream to it.|
And many nations will come and say,
"Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD
And to the House of the God of Jacob,
|Globalism: It will continue to expand until it covers the globe|
|That He may teach us about His ways|
And that we may walk in His paths."
For from Zion will go forth the Law
Even the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
|Law: Biblical Law will be our standard|
|And He will judge between many peoples|
And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.
Then they will hammer their
swords into plowshares
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation will not lift up sword against nation
And never again will they train for war.
|Peace: We will pursue God's "shalom"|
|And each of them will sit under his||Family: Beginning at home|
|Vine and under his fig tree,|
With no one to make them afraid.
For the LORD of hosts has spoken.
|Garden-Land: Healing the Environment|
|Though all the peoples walk|
Each in the name of his god,
As for us, we will walk
In the Name of the LORD our God
forever and ever.
In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth,
and I will gather her that is driven out,
and her that I have afflicted;
And I will make her that halted a remnant,
and her that was cast far off a strong nation:
and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion
from henceforth, even for ever.
