He will swallow up death forever

“There are no ‘if’s’ in God’s world.
And no places that are safer than other places.
The center of His will is our only safety–
let us pray that we may always know it!”

Corrie ten Boom

(ceiling portion of The Breakers Hotel, Palm Beach, FL / Julie Cook / 2017)

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines,
of rich food filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear.
And he will destroy on this mountain
the shroud that is cast over all peoples,
the sheet that is spread over all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.
Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces,
and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the Lord has spoken.
It will be said on that day,
Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us.
This is the Lord for whom we have waited;
let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

Isaiah 25:6-9

    “God is our refuge and strength,
        a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1
    May your day be filled with blessings and strength in the knowledge of the presence of the Lord.

    Thank you for a thoughtful post.

    Please forgive me, but the picture sent me off on a bit of a tangent. One of the radio preachers I listen to seems to find a bit of irritation in the modern interpretation of cherubim. I guess you could say whenever the subject comes up he remembers his annoyance and goes off on a tangent. We are built like that. Lords knows why!

    Try this. Google the images for “cherub” and then google the images for “cherubim.” Then see how the Bible describes the cherubim.
