“They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” Isa. 11:9.
“Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” [Ps. 91:9, 10]. God will not fail His church in the hour of her greatest peril. He has promised deliverance. “I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents,” He has declared, “and have mercy on his dwelling places.” [Jer. 30:18]. Then will the purpose of God be fulfilled; the principles of His kingdom will be honored by all beneath the sun.
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” [Isa. 11:6-9]. When this state of knowledge and peace prevails in the kingdom, then “in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: [consequently it is in probationary time] and… In that day… the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people.” Isa. 11:10, 11.
That a heaven-like safety and peace shall infuse the kingdom at the time that God shall use it as His “battle ax” with which to smite the nations, is evidenced by the following scriptures:
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” Dan. 2:44, 45.
The salvation of God must be made known to all the people living on the face of the earth. God’s glory is to be revealed, His word established, and Christ’s kingdom set up to give deliverance to the world.”
