Exploring Isaiah: Chapter 2

For those of you following along with our Exploring Isaiah group, here's the link for the first post on chapter one. And here (below) is chapter 2:

This chapter begins by Isaiah saying, "It shall come to pass in the latter days"... Any thoughts on this? As I understand it {and correct me if I'm wrong} this is referring to the New Jerusalem, the Kingdom God establishes on earth after the second coming of Christ.

I love verse 4. LOVE it. "He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation SHALL NOT lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore." (emphasis mine)

Can you imagine it? A time is coming when there will be real, true, tangible peace! And we won't be subject to corrupt governments or shady politics, because GOD HIMSELF will rule His people!

If you get a minute, compare Isaiah 2:4 with Micah 4:1-3 and Joel 3:10. Neat, right? ;)

Any other thoughts on chapter 2??
