2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
The acceptable year of the Lord:
The present time is the age of the acceptable year of the Lord, as proven by the fact that Christ claimed this was fulfilled in Him (Luke 4:16-19). NOW is the accepted time and the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2).
The day of the vengeance of our God: This part was not quoted by Christ, as in Luke 4:16-19, showing clearly how He rightly divided the Word of Truth. There has been already a period of 1900+ years between the beginning of the acceptable year of the Lord and the future day of vengeance of God which will be the Tribulation judgment of the seals, trumpets, vials, etc. of God’s wrath as in Rev. 6-19.
To comfort all that mourn: All who mourn will be comforted not only in Zion, but in any other place where men are burdened for the lost, for world conditions, for the kingdom of God to come on earth to rule as it rules in heaven, and for the deliverance of all creation.
It was my intention to include v. 3 today, but I can see it will make this an unusually long post. So–verse 3 is tomorrow.
