You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
3 And it
shall come to pass in the day [yowm] that the LORD [Yahovah]
shall give thee rest [nuwach] from thy sorrow [`otseb], and from thy fear [rogez],
and from the hard [qasheh] bondage [`abodah] wherein thou wast made to serve [`abad], KJV-Interlinear
3 And it
will be in the day when the Lord gives you rest from your pain and turmoil and
harsh service in which you have been enslaved, NASB
We have all heard the phrase, no more sorrow, no more tears, no more pain, no more death, the old things have passed away. And, we know that this applies to believers after they die and go to heaven. The sorrow and tears and pain and death all belong to this life in this world.
But there will be a time for humanity in this life, when the burdens of life, namely sorrow and fear and bondage, which are just descriptive terms of the problems and troubles that we all face in this life, will vanish.
Continuing on from the previous verse, when the people who will survive the tribulation, enter into life in the millennium under the rule of Christ, then life is going to change dramatically.
We have already seen in our studies in Isaiah, that nature will change dramatically, the geography of the world will change dramatically, the personalities and habits of animals will change dramatically, the environment will change dramatically, even the lifespan of people and the general health of people will change dramatically.
In the previous verse we saw how the evil influences of our current world, will vanish. There won’t be any religions, nor will there be ridiculous philosophies or beliefs, even political correctness will fade into oblivion, and far left and far right ideas will vanish.
There will be only the word of God, which is truth, by which Christ will rule.
The slavery to prejudice and bias and the unfair circumstances of life will no longer exist during the millennium.
And we see in this verse, that the burdens of life will cease, and the sorrows of life will cease, and even the fears of life and the insecurities of life will be no more.
What we have in this world today is the influence of Satan. And in the millennium that influence will not exist.
Today we have people who can freely think and discern and make up their minds.
In the millennium people will still be able to freely think and discern and make up their minds.
But the big difference between the two periods of time, is the existence or nonexistence of the evil that comes from Satanic influence.
Christ will rule for one thousand years. There will be unbelievable prosperity, no war, not even the implements of war or violence, or things of that nature that exist today.
People will still be people, but without the influence of Satan, the whole outlook on life in the millennium will be dramatically different than it is now.
All of the negatives that you can identify now in this world, are due to some form of influence that comes from Satan. And that evil influence drives humanity in the wrong direction, which further compounds the influence of evil, and the negative results of evil.
In the garden there was perfect environment. After sin came into the world that perfect environment deteriorated, and continues to deteriorate.
Long, long ago, the universe was created perfect, but when Satan committed his first sin, and continued on sinning, then the nature of the universe began to deteriorate.
When Satan is locked away at the beginning of the millennium, then that huge influence will no longer exist, and that will give way to a perfect environment, to a perfect set of circumstances, to a potentially perfect life for everyone.
But as we have already seen in other studies, people will still reject Christ in spite of their perfect environment and circumstances and lives.
So the world around you no matter what it’s condition good or bad, is not the answer to life. Only faith in Christ, and Bible doctrine in the soul, can bring the correct perfection and happiness and prosperity and security and all things that are good, into your life.
