Unlike the past, invaders will not take their houses and confiscate their vineyards.
For my people will live as long as trees,
and my chosen ones will have time to enjoy their hard-won gains.
They will not work in vain,
and their children will not be doomed to misfortune.
For they are people blessed by the Lord,
and their children, too, will be blessed.
I will answer them before they even call to me.
While they are still talking about their needs,
I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
The wolf and the lamb will feed together.
The lion will eat hay like a cow.
But the snakes will eat dust.
In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed on my holy mountain.
I, the Lord, have spoken!” Isaiah 65:22-25 NLT
From the text, Isaiah continues to describe the new Jerusalem where there will be no more hardship that will be experienced. Life will be totally different in the place where God will bring those that trusted Him as Lord and Savior. There will be no more threat of somebody coming to rob and destroy your property. God will reward those that persevere in their faith. They will be treated by God to a life of prosperity. No more sickness but longevity and strength. No more of the curse for God will establish for them blessings after blessings. No more frustration and futility for they will be in His presence. This is what Jesus has died for; to fulfill His promises and He will not be denied. Your enjoyment with God can begin now while still here in this decaying world. No matter how you look at yourself undeserving of His grace and mercies because of your sin, just come to Him. Come to Him with your sin and need and allow Him to transform you. “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17). He will not just mend and patch up the old you but will re-create in you the life He alone could provide that you will enjoy for eternity. We are in a broken down world and we cannot slow down its decay no matter what we do for this is not our permanent place. “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him” ( 1 Corinthians 2:9).
