Isaiah 35:1-2. “The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them: and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.”
My sister lives in Phoenix, and she sees wonderful beauty in the desert there. Try to imagine that beauty multiplied countless times over. In Israel, the wilderness and the solitary places will blossom and become abundant sources of life beyond our imagination during the Millennial Kingdom. Instead of dry sand and infertility, there will be lush fields producing fruit, grain, vegetables and flowers.
Lebanon had been know for its great cedars; Carmel for its beauty; and Sharon for its fertility. Under the reign of Messiah, the whole earth will once again be restored to beauty and abundance.
As peace, destroyed by Antichrist, is restored to the earth under Messiah, the whole world will enjoy the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
