Text: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” – Isaiah 52:7.
Comment: The feet of Jesus Christ are the saints, the remaining ones in this age, known as the remnant. They are being commissioned and mandated to proclaim the good tidings of salvation to mankind. They stand on the mountains (the kingdoms of this earth) and proclaim the reign from Zion, of God’s crowned King, Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 52:7) The saints and their helpers are still repeating the clarion call of our Lord Jesus Christ for the sheep of God to come to him. – Matthew 11:28-30.
In the dream of the “great image” by King Nebuchadnezzar, whose dream the prophet Daniel interpreted, God Almighty gives further assurance to His people that, it is only in His established Kingdom that people can find refuge and sure resting places; every other place is mere sinking sand. This Kingdom will know no decay or decline but shall continue to grow as the people of God flee into it. – Daniel 2:44; Matthew 24:15,16.
“Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” – Isaiah 26:20, 21.
