Sermon

A Vision of Peace

Speaker

Bobae Lee

Scripture

Isaiah 35:1-10

35 The desert and the parched land will be glad;
          the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
      Like the crocus, 2 it will burst into bloom;
          it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
      The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
          the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
      they will see the glory of the Lord,
          the splendor of our God.

3    Strengthen the feeble hands,
          steady the knees that give way;
4    say to those with fearful hearts,
          “Be strong, do not fear;
      your God will come,
          he will come with vengeance;
      with divine retribution
          he will come to save you.”

5    Then will the eyes of the blind be opened
          and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
6    Then will the lame leap like a deer,
          and the mute tongue shout for joy.
      Water will gush forth in the wilderness
          and streams in the desert.
7    The burning sand will become a pool,
          the thirsty ground bubbling springs.
      In the haunts where jackals once lay,
          grass and reeds and papyrus will grow.

8    And a highway will be there;
          it will be called the Way of Holiness;
          it will be for those who walk on that Way.
      The unclean will not journey on it;
          wicked fools will not go about on it.
9    No lion will be there,
          nor any ravenous beast;
          they will not be found there.
      But only the redeemed will walk there,
10      and those the Lord has rescued will return.
      They will enter Zion with singing;
          everlasting joy will crown their heads.
      Gladness and joy will overtake them,
          and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
