Isaiah, chapters 24-27, are referred to by Biblical scholars as the Apocalypse of Isaiah because these chapters all point to “end of world” events, and not merely Israel’s future. We saw last week that chapter 24 points us forward to a cataclysmic time in world history that we’ve come to call The Great Tribulation. Chapter 25 points us to the next great event in God’s plan which is Christ’s Millennial Kingdom. It concerns that period of time when Jesus Christ is reigning upon the earth in glory and power. It is a message of hope and promise to the Jews. Yet, as I read these verses, I am reminded of a parallel passage in Rev. 21:4. That verse is not a prophecy to the Jews, but it is a promise to all of God’s children. Notice what that great verse says, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” I don’t know about you, but I like the thought of Jesus wiping all of our tears away!
Tonight, I want to take some time to look at this prophetic passage. I want to look at what Isaiah is saying and I would like to preach for a few minutes on Some Tears Our Lord Will Wipe Away.
I want you to know that there is a better day coming for all of God’s children. I want you to know that weeping and sorrow will not last forever. I want you to know that trials and heartaches will come to an end one of these days. I want you to know that one day, God’s children are going home and, when we arrive there, God will take His great handkerchief of grace and all of our tears will be wiped away. Here are some of the tears our Lord will wipe away.
Conc: I really believe that you and I will have tears and burdens as long as we walk in this world. But, I thank God a day is coming when He will wipe every one away forever. And, after He does, they will never return again!
