"Come to the Mountain of the LORD"

Isaiah 2:3 "Many nations will say "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the Temple of the God of Israel. There he will teach us his ways, so that we may obey him."

This passage is speaking of the time during the Millennium...and I look forward to being there saying the same thing. But I also want to be saying that today too...."Come, let's go up to the Mountain of the LORD and learn His ways, obey Him and worship Him.

And look at the heart of the people...they are excited to go to the mountain of the LORD, to be in His presence, to learn his ways and obey Him. Father, give me a heart like that today and continually.

And look at the results of the total surrender of the nations to God: Isaiah 2:4c "All wars will stop, and military training will come to an end." Ah, I look forward to seeing and experiencing that during the Millennium. But for now...I want that in my own heart and life...absolute surrender to the LORD day by day.

Isaiah 2:5 "Come, people of Israel (Come, people of Harvest, California, United States, the world), let us walk in the light of the LORD!
