Tenfold Blessing

Isaiah 30: 23-26. ” Then shall He give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan. And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in that day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of the people, and healeth the stroke of their wounds.”

God promises prosperity and abundance when Jesus reigns. This is an amazing passage, going into detail on just exactly how things will improve materially for His people. I can’t imagine the moon being as bright as the sun, nor the sun like seven days of sunshine rolled into one. Combine all that light with an abundance of water flowing from the hills and mountains, and you have a desert that will indeed blossom as the rose.

Please don’t misunderstand this passage. It is not a promise for us today that if we obey God we will have health, wealth, and happiness. That is not a scriptural teaching, but one that distorts the reality of life in this fallen world.  God never promised believers that everything would go perfectly for them.  What He did promise is that He will walk with us through whatever  valley we must travel.

This passage is a Millennium prophecy,  specifically promised to Israel when they accept Jesus Christ as Messiah.

  1. What? You mean when for instance Jesus said the following. …

    John 16:33 KJVS
    These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

    That he really meant we would have hard times but He has won the victory and we need to remember that?
    Thank you sweet sister! You know we have so many false teachers telling everyone. If you will just give us this you will get all kinds of stuff back….you will have a FABULOUS life! *Now, I know GOD can and does often bless you greatly when you do help others in love and as a cheerful giver. He has done so in my own life. At times maybe it is simply sustaining you and not an abundance but either way it is a blessing! *

    I love this passage. It shows us how in the storms we might sometimes feel like Jesus might be sleeping, but we can rest knowing He is in the boat with us and we will get through them all if we simply keep our eyes upon Him and not thinking on the wind and thunder and lightening. Don’t focus on circumstances in our lives…focus on the one who saves. (Easier said than done often…right? It is still the truth. )

    Mark 4:37-40 KJVS
    And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. [38] And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? [39] And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. [40] And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
