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.
