Isaiah 2:1
God’s Universal Reign

      1The word which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2Now it will come about that
         In the last days
         The mountain of the house of the LORD
         Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
         And will be raised above the hills;
         And all the nations will stream to it.

3And many peoples will come and say,
         “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
         To the house of the God of Jacob;
         That He may teach us concerning His ways
         And that we may walk in His paths.”
         For the law will go forth from Zion
         And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

4And He will judge between the nations,
         And will render decisions for many peoples;
         And 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 learn war.

5Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

6For You have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob,
         Because they are filled with influences from the east,
         And they are soothsayers like the Philistines,
         And they strike bargains with the children of foreigners.

7Their land has also been filled with silver and gold
         And there is no end to their treasures;
         Their land has also been filled with horses
         And there is no end to their chariots.

8Their land has also been filled with idols;
         They worship the work of their hands,
         That which their fingers have made.

9So the common man has been humbled
         And the man of importance has been abased,
         But do not forgive them.

10Enter the rock and hide in the dust
         From the terror of the LORD and from the splendor of His majesty.

11The proud look of man will be abased
         And the loftiness of man will be humbled,
         And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day.

A Day of Reckoning Coming

12For the LORD of hosts will have a day of reckoning
         Against everyone who is proud and lofty
         And against everyone who is lifted up,
         That he may be abased.

13And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up,
         Against all the oaks of Bashan,

14Against all the lofty mountains,
         Against all the hills that are lifted up,

15Against every high tower,
         Against every fortified wall,

16Against all the ships of Tarshish
         And against all the beautiful craft.

17The pride of man will be humbled
         And the loftiness of men will be abased;
         And the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,

18But the idols will completely vanish.

19Men will go into caves of the rocks
         And into holes of the ground
         Before the terror of the LORD
         And the splendor of His majesty,
         When He arises to make the earth tremble.

20In that day men will cast away to the moles and the bats
         Their idols of silver and their idols of gold,
         Which they made for themselves to worship,

21In order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs
         Before the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty,
         When He arises to make the earth tremble.

22Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils;
         For why should he be esteemed?

The thing that Isaiah son of Amoz hath seen concerning Judah and Jerusalem:
For Godly Sorrow Worketh Repentance to Salvation, not to be Repented Of; but the Sorrow of the World Worketh Death. 2 Corinthians 7:10.
In this chapter the apostle refers to another epistle which he had formerly written to the church at Corinth, on a certain subject, in which they were greatly to blame. He speaks here of the effect that it; had, in bringing them to true repentance. They sorrowed after a godly sort. This was the evidence that their repentance was genuine. "For behold this self-same thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation,

Sirs, what must I do to be Saved? and they Said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. Who of God is Made unto us Wisdom, and Righteousness, and Sanctification, and Redemption, Acts 26:30, 31, with 1 Corinthians 1:30.
There can be no objection to putting these texts together in this manner as only a clause in the first of them is omitted, which is not essential to the sense, and which is irrelevant to my present purpose. In the passage first quoted, the apostle tells the inquiring jailer, who wished to know what he must do to be saved, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." And in the other he adds the explanatory remark, telling what a Savior Jesus Christ is, "Who of God is made unto us wisdom,

A vision of the Latter-Day Glories
We shall not, to-day, look through all the dim vista of Zion's tribulations. We will leave the avenue of troubles and of trials through which the church has passed and is to pass, and we will come, by faith, to the last days; and may God help us while we indulge in a glorious vision of that which is to be ere long, when "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."

But to Know Whether Christianity Wants, or Admits of War...
But to know whether Christianity wants, or admits of war, Christianity is to be considered as in its right state. Now the true state of the world turned Christian, is thus described by the great gospel-prophet, who showed what a change it was to make in the fallen state of the world. "It shall come to pass," says he, "in the last days," that is, in the days of Christendom, "that the mountain of the Lord's house" (his Christian kingdom) "shall be established in the top of the mountains, and all nations

Sweet is the Solace of Thy Love,
"I, even I, am He that comforteth you." -- Isaiah 2:12 Sweet is the solace of Thy love, My Heavenly Friend, to me, While through the hidden way of faith I journey home with Thee, Learning by quiet thankfulness As a dear child to be. Though from the shadow of Thy peace My feet would often stray, Thy mercy follows all my steps, And will not turn away; Yea, thou wilt comfort me at last, As none beneath Thee may. Oft in a dark and lonely place, I hush my hastened breath, To hear the comfortable words

General Remarks on the History of Missions in this Age.
THE operations of Christianity are always radically the same, because they flow from its essential character, and its relations to human nature; yet it makes some difference whether it is received amongst nations to whom it was previously quite unknown, either plunged in barbarism or endowed with a certain degree of civilization, proceeding from some other form of religion, or whether it attaches itself to an already existing Christian tradition. In the latter case, it will indeed have to combat

The Condition of the World when Our Lord Returns Proves that his Second Advent Cannot be Post-Millennial.
God's Word makes known the exact conditions which are to obtain here immediately preceding the Redeemer's Return. The Holy Spirit has given a number of graphic portrayals of the world as it will exist when our Lord comes back to it. One of these pictures is to be found in Isaiah 2--"For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and

Life and death are in Thy keeping, and Thy will ordaineth all: From the armies of Thy heavens to an unseen insect's fall.

"And Truly Our Fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And These Things Write we unto You, that Your Joy May Be
1 John i. 3, 4.--"And truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full." It was sin that did first break off that fellowship that was between God and man, and cut off that blessed society in which the honour and happiness of man consisted. But that fundamental bond being loosed, it hath likewise untied all the links of society of men among themselves, and made such a general dispersion and dissipation of mankind,

Place of Jesus in the History of the World.
The great event of the History of the world is the revolution by which the noblest portions of humanity have passed from the ancient religions, comprised under the vague name of Paganism, to a religion founded on the Divine Unity, the Trinity, and the Incarnation of the Son of God. It has taken nearly a thousand years to accomplish this conversion. The new religion had itself taken at least three hundred years in its formation. But the origin of the revolution in question with which we have to do
