The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Isaiah 65:17-25

Our second coming quote for today is from James Montgomery Boice. He said, “The outstanding promise of the Old Testament – the great hope of Old Covenant Israel – was the coming (advent) of Messiah. Yet it was only the actual advent which disclosed the full meaning of that long-promised event. Similarly, the event alone will reveal to us the full meaning of the second coming, its accompaniments, and its effects. The event itself is certain: but its time, its character, its accompaniments, and its detailed effects, are concealed in language which is designed to stir up our zeal and diligence in present duty, rather than to satisfy the curiosity of inquisitive minds.”
