Isaiah 25:8-9 NIV He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The Lord has spoken. 9In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.
Messiah is the Hope of Israel, but not only Israel, for He is the hope of all creation. The hope of His coming, the hope of His return, the hope of resurrection, and the hope of deliverance. Hope is powerful. When hope is gone, people often become sick and die. God’s promises are steadfast; they will happen. We can have hope today. Be thankful for the hope of Messiah’s return to restore all things.
