This is the most beautiful blessing the Lord is pouring out upon Jerusalem in the last days. He is holding them in His hand and showing all the world how much, He loves them. You see how the country of Israel is always held in contempt by most of the world. They stand alone with few allies. They seem to always get falsely accused.
It is the same with spiritual Jerusalem. It doesn’t seem to matter how holy God’s remnant is, they are continually falsely accused. And the Lord has allowed it for such a long time. He allows the unjust fires of persecution to swallow up the fleshly nature. When He sees Himself in our heart, then He puts out the fire. Then Isaiah 62 unfolds.
The Lord takes His special Jerusalem, which is His bride and singles her out. He takes her into His hand and places a special crown of honor upon her head. He wraps her head with a beauty that comes from Him alone. She is in His Hand and will be seen as none before her have been. He bestows His glory, honor and majesty upon her. She will be respected by all.
Isaiah 62:4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be desolate; but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah; for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. KJV
The Lord is taking His place and calls her by a new name because He delights in her. He has forgotten all of her murmuring and sins and cleansed her with His blood and now she is not just complete but forever in His Hand.
All sufferings are in the past. No more pain or heartache. No more rejection. Sounds just too good to be true. But one day, He will come with His rewards and very soon He will take up His throne with His spotless bride. What a day that will be!
I love the scripture you just shared
Isaiah 62:4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be desolate; but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah; for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
Let’s talk more about this promise.
Is this happening now or in the after life?
I believe it is both. I love Isaiah 62 and have been waiting for Him to be my vindication (verse 1 in Amp.) I see the beginning of it now. Verse 7 says He will make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Then their vintage (wine) that they have gathered, they shall eat it and praise the Lord. Verse 11 says His salvation comes with His reward. That could be heaven, but I think all these are on the earth.
I have experienced being forsaken and desolate though I was with Him and not backslidden. So, I have looked for My Beulah Land physically though I believe I had it spiritually. And it gets better every day. And I have experienced being married to Jesus on this earth. He really takes care of me.
Do you agree?
