Isaiah 33:5-6 The LORD is exalted, for He dwells on high; He will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, and He will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is Zion's treasure.
Take careful note where the locus of God's activity will be: Zion. Not London, Manhatten, Geneva, Sydney or Delhi; but Jerusalem - the centre and focus of Israel. God is going to fill Zion - and, by extension, His ancient people - with justice and righteousness. No longer will Israel be seen as a source of instability in the Middle East, but instead as the place of stability. No longer will the world tremble and twitch at every twist and turn of the stock markets or war zones; for there will be knowledge, wisdom and salvation pouring forth from Zion for all the world. He will be the treasure in Zion - place and people.
Better get ready. Better get used to it, for God has clearly spoken and it is only a matter of time. Don't get caught or left behind, trying to push your piece of string in the opposite direction!
