ISAIAH 42: 15-16 I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbage; I will turn the rivers into islands, and I will dry up the pools.
16. And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and uneven places plain. These things I have determined to do for them, and not leave them forsaken. Amp.

The scripture is talking about the last days when Jesus returns He will turn things upside down. How could the meek inherit the earth? Politicians are not usually known for their meekness or gentle ways. People that run things are usually out for themselves and greedy graspers.
Habakkuk 2:14 But the time is coming when the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as waters cover the sea. The definition of glory in the Hebrew is splendor, honor and all of His goodness in abundance. What a beautiful place to live.
How plentiful is the water in the sea? The knowledge of His glory will be everywhere. All will know of His great goodness and love. He will withhold nothing but all will be poured out like the seas.
When you study earthquakes, the main reason for them is to create a mountain or uncreate a mountain. There are so many earthquakes and volcanoes happening everyday. He is laying waste mountains physically.
Revelation 6:14 … and every mountain and island island was dislodged from its place. An island is actually a mountain in the sea. By Rev. 16:20 it says, “and every island fled and no mountains could be found.” The wrath is being poured out and mountains are disappearing. Between chapter 6 and 16, the mountains disappear.
He is laying waste mountains physically until they are gone. He will also lay waste spiritual mountains. Isaiah 2:11 The proud looks of man shall be brought low, and the haughtiness of men shall be humbled, and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. He will begin by coming against the mountains. Is that why there are so many earthquakes?
If you are not on the Lord’s side you will run, “from before the terror and dread of the Lord, and from the glory of His Majesty when He arises to shake mightily and terribly the earth.” Isaiah 2:19.
How many churches are led by the proud? He will bring down the haughtiness of man especially in His Church. He loves His sheep and will rescue them from false shepherds who are not feeding them the proper food.
Ezekiel 34:12 As a shepherd seeks out his sheep in the day he is among his flock that are scattered, so will I seek out My sheep, and I will rescue them out of all the places where they have been scattered in the day of clouds and thick darkness. Amp.
He will save those who belong to Him but have been held back by false shepherds. He will lay waste those Churches that are not His house of prayer and save the sheep. He will make darkness light and not leave them forsaken.
What a wonderful time to be alive. What a privilege to see Jesus come and take up His Mighty Throne. He is bringing His recompense and reward. It is time to put your lamps in order. Soon we will experience the actual events. Even so, Lord Jesus, COME QUICKLY!
