It's a day closer....

In the last days the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it.

2 Many nations will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

3 He will judge between many peoples and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

4 Every man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree, and no one will make them afraid, for the LORD Almighty has spoken.
Micah 4:1-4

I love these verses as I pray for the nations. Imagine what it will look like when places like Cambodia, Columbia, Liberia, Somalia, Russia and Holland, all bend the knee to the Lord's ways, arrange their laws according to His word. Imagine each of these countries bringing their particular praise to God. Imagine each one joyfully rich in resources, each one appreciating the other, each one kneeling side by side with the other, thanking God for the one next to him or her. No more top-heavy police states full of distrust for one another! No more border guards or barbed wire! Imagine them learning to feed one another and encourage one another. That's an Imagine that John Lennon can't match!
