On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines,
of rich food filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear.
And he will destroy on this mountain
the shroud that is cast over all peoples,
the sheet that is spread over all nations;
he will swallow up death forever.
Then the Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces,
and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the LORD has spoken.
It will be said on that day,
Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us.
This is the LORD for whom we have waited;
let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
(Isaiah 25:6-9, NRSV)
When you think about a feast, what comes to mind?
A beautiful set table with all of the trimmings…
Overflowing bowls and plates, and drinks galore!
Well here we see the Lord of Hosts, God making a feast happen on the mountain!
Not the place we expect to go for a feast, but then God is not held to our standards or limitations.
God can and will do what God wants to!
So prepare for the feast!
