Celebrating the Overthrow of Evil

“And in this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all people a feast of choices pieces, a feast of wines on the lees, of fast things full of marrow, of well-refined wines on the lees. And He will destroy on this mountain the surface of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces. The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth, For the Lord has spoken” (Isa. 25:6-8).

 

Isn’t this wonderful? This is a marvelous prophecy of “all people” — Gentiles and Jews together — at God’s messianic feast, celebrating the overthrow of evil and the joy of eternity with God. It shows that God intended his saving message to go out to the whole world, not just the Jews.

During the feast, God will end death forever. The people who participate in this great feast will be those who have been living by faith. That is why they say, “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him and will save us” (Isaiah 25:9). Chapter 55 of Isaiah also gives us another presentation of this great banquet.
