“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.” ~ Isaiah 11:11
There is still a mighty harvest of souls to win to Christ in these lands. So, “Do not grow weary in well doing for in do season you shall reap a harvest of righteousness and peace.”
“And I will set up a (miraculous) sign among them, and from them I will send survivors to the nations —to Tarshish, Pul (Put), and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the Isles and coastlands afar off that have not heard of My fame nor seen My glory. And they will declare and proclaim My glory among the nations….” ~Isaiah 66:19-24
Therefore, we must pray as Jesus taught His disciples “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” ~Matthew 9:38
And also, Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. ~Luke 10:2
The LORD has ordained praise to arise from all the islands of the earth to surround the nations of the continents and charge the atmosphere of the first heaven and the lands below to bring a wave of His Redemptive light and power to sweep over the nations. However, the Prophets, Evangelists and all manner of His Servants must be willing to be sent to do the will of The LORD which is to decree His Word in due season and warn the people of impending judgements.
“Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.” ~ Isaiah 42:12.
The LORD will call forth judgement upon the peoples and send this word by His Prophets to speak a warning to these island nations and all the Islands that surround the earth. For he has ordained praise to arise from these islands to charge the heavenly realms with an outpouring of His Grace upon the nations of the world that these islands surround. He will also cause praise with thanksgiving in Worship to arise among the islands of the seas who will heed the Prophets warnings and return to The LORD and be healed and willingly announce to the world they are a Christian Nation. He will locate in strategic positions these missions of worship to go to the islands to raise up a standard for Worship & Praise to arise and this worship will bring whole communities into the Kingdom just as in the time of Duncan Campbell who was called to win the whole Isle of Lewis, Scotland.
“And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.” ~ Isaiah 13:22
The rich have retreated to the islands to remain hidden and to purchase a safe haven, to find a way out of the turmoil of the nations, for many have had a hand in orchestrating the failure of the superstructure of the economies of the world to satisfy their own greed.
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:” ~ Revelation 6:15-16
Therefore, you will see many rich and wealthy become desolated, for The LORD’s arm is not too short to render judgement in the earth even to the most powerful men who call themselves their own God.
“Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? When I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? Behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.” ~ Isaiah 50:2
“I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.” ~Isaiah 59:18.
“A sword and a drought upon her waters, that they may be dry up! For it is a land of images, and they are mad over their idols.” ~Jeremiah 50:38
“Yes, even the islands will be covered by the seas and the remnant of the surviving animals and birds will fly or swim to the land (of Babylon.) But, because of the sin of that land it shall never be inhabited again from generation to generation.”
“Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, (in Babylon) and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.” ~ Jeremiah 50:39.
This phenomena is repeated as we read in “The third angel blew his trumpet, and a huge star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it dropped on a third of the rivers on the springs of water…And the name of the star is Wormwood. A third part of the waters was changed into wormwood, and many people died from drinking the water, because it had become bitter. Then I looked and I saw a solitary eagle flying in midheaven, and as it flew I heard it crying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the rest of the trumpet blasts which the three angels are about to sound.”~ Revelation 8:10-12
“And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.” ~ Revelation 16:4
“And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.” ~ Revelation 16:20
“I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.” ~ Isaiah 42:15.
He will drain the rivers and there will be islands emerging for there will be a new topography on the earth. Just as was decreed when the Mt. of Olives would be split in two from the east to the west by a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall be removed toward the north and half of it toward the south ”the rivers would flow from Jerusalem (living waters) and change their courses.” ~ Revelation 14:4 (See also Isaiah 64,1,2)
“And it shall be on that day that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern Dead Sea and half of them to the western Mediterranean Sea; in summer and in winter shall it be. And The Lord shall be King over all the earth; on that day The Lord shall be one in recognition and worship of all men and His name one. All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon, the Rimmon that is south of Jerusalem. But Jerusalem shall remain lifted up on its site and dwell in its place, from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s wine presses. And it shall be inhabited, for there shall be no more curse or ban of utter destruction, but Jerusalem shall dwell securely.”~ Zechariah 14:9-11. (See also Revelation 22:3)
