Christ in the Old Testament- Isaiah 2

Christ in the Old Testament

Pastor Kachelmeier is the guest on Issues, Etc. talking about Christ in Isaiah chapter 2. The Prophet Isaiah declares,“He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and 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, ESV) This is not the accomplishment of earthly kingdoms bringing world peace; rather, it is the action of God bringing His Eternal Kingdom of Peace. All kingdoms of the earth shall come to an end and only God’s Kingdom will endure forever. The Christ will come to be the only one exalted. “For out of Zion shall go the Torah, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:3). After the Resurrection, Christ sent out the Apostles to the nations from Jerusalem with the Torah, that is, His instruction. This message went to the Jews first and then to the Gentiles second. The invitation goes out, “O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord.” (Isaiah 2:5, ESV)  As the Apostle John says, “…if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)   (click here to listen to the interview on Issues, Etc.)
