In this teaching, Dr. Don G. Pickney reveals through the Prophet Isaiah’s writing, another view of Christ exalted and now fulfilling another aspect of God’s plan for Earth and the Church.
The teaching takes its setting from Isaiah, Chapter 24. Chapters 24-28 are called by the scholars, “poetic prophecy.” Symbolism is found throughout these chapters as a more poetic style is taken. It is within this prophetic style Pastor Don unveils God’s plan for this end-time period of The Day of Jehovah Tsaba, the chapter ending with Satan and all His kingdom bound and cast into the bottomless pit, and the beginning of the millennial reign of Christ.
As the teaching continues, the veil will be lifted concerning God’s plan for Earth and its environment during this very strategic end-of-the-age period. The chapter reveals what is actually taking place before our eyes in the news cycles and social media, and what is occurring across the cities and university campuses, and in all aspects of current society.
God promised in Haggai 2 and in Hebrews 12:26, that “everything that can be shaken will be shaken.” In the beginning of the Pastor’s teaching from Isaiah’s prophecy, as the earth is reeling under God’s orchestrating arm, comes this statement:
Isaiah 24:1-3 MSG “Danger ahead! GOD's about to ravish the earth and leave it in ruins, Rip everything out by the roots and send everyone scurrying: (2) priests and laypeople alike, owners and workers alike, celebrities and nobodies alike, buyers and sellers alike, bankers and beggars alike, the haves and have-nots alike. (3) The landscape will be a moonscape, totally wasted. And why? Because GOD says so. He's issued the orders.”
As the chapter continues we see God’s plan for shaking all of the earth with everything that can destabilize existence. But then, right in the center of the Chapter comes God’s plan for the glory of the Church during this “gross dark” period:
Isaiah 24:13-16 MSG “That's the way it will be on this earth. This is the fate of all nations: An olive tree shaken clean of its olives, a grapevine picked clean of its grapes. (14) But there are some who will break into glad song. Out of the west they'll shout of GOD's majesty. (15) Yes, from the east GOD's glory will ascend. Every island of the sea Will broadcast GOD's fame, the fame of the God of Israel. (16) From the four winds and the seven seas we hear the singing: "All praise to the Righteous One!" But I said, "That's all well and good for somebody, but all I can see is doom, doom, and more doom." All of them at one another's throats, yes, all of them at one another's throats.”
You see, in Isaiah’s vision of this period, he sees the darkness – even gross darkness – upon the societal earth. But his vision is not without a glimpse of the Church – glorious and celebrating God’s goodness to them! It was important to God that we be given this picture in prophecy to let us know that no matter what we see coming on this earth (all God’s plan and purpose), He has something glorious and wonderful in the midst of it all for His people!
