sermon: Shouting Gleanings and Singing Olives (Part One)
The Worldwide Welcome of the Victorious King
Given 12-Sep-20; 70 minutes
Isaiah 24-27 has been named "Isaiah's Apocalypse" because these chapters share with the Book of Revelation the theme of God's judgment on the entire earth. God uses the term "the city of confusion" to describe His enemies and those of Israel. This city is in fact the world-city that God's people know as Babylon, a city God will tear down so thoroughly it will never again be rebuilt. Isaiah 24 prophesies that God, in the very midst of the destruction attending the Day of the Lord, will create and preserve a remnant made up of grape gleanings (the people of His Church) and of olives (national Israelites) who together will sing in joy, announcing His return, just as Christ's disciples sang at His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem in 31 AD. The remnant will be in Jerusalem, but also distributed over the face of the earth, even to its corners. Gentiles and Israelites everywhere will hear the remnant singing the praises of the God of salvation. The chapter ends with the victorious Christ enthroned before the Elders.
