“…They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore” (Isaiah 2:4 NKJV).


The Lord gave Isaiah a vision of the latter days when all nations will come to Jerusalem to worship, a day when the Lord Himself will judge and bring peace to the earth. In that day there will be no need for weapons of war. The wealth and works of the nations will no longer be wasted on mutual destruction, but on worship of God and mutual welfare. Even the study of war will be lost, so that mankind forgets the art. Such a day Isaiah saw and we still await its arrival.
PRAYER: Dear Father, we wait with hope for that Day when Your Son returns and establishes peace on earth. Until then, we are Your ambassadors. Strengthen us for the battle. We take up our sword and shield again today in Your name, until that Day when we lay them down at Your feet. In Jesus’ name, amen.
