25 That I
will break [shabar] the Assyrian ['Ashshuwr] in
my land ['erets], and upon my mountains [har] tread him under foot [buwc]:
then shall his yoke [`ol] depart [cuwr] from off them, and his burden [cobel] depart [cuwr] from off
their shoulders [shakem]. KJV-Interlinear
25 to break
Assyria in My land, and I will trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke will
be removed from them, and his burden removed from their shoulder. NASB
With the promise of the breaking of the power and evil of Babylon, which is still future with respect to Isaiah’s day, God now promises to break the back of Assyria, which is the current threat in Isaiah’s day, toward Judah.
Babylon is a future threat. Assyria is a current threat.
The phrase, my land and my mountains, from Gods perspective, is a specific reference to Judah and Israel, but it is also a reference to any place where God’s people live. And that of course includes the entire world.
Babylon symbolically represents Satan and all of his evil. Assyria symbolically represents all of the evil of man.
One day, at the second advent of Christ, all sources of evil will be destroyed and all instruments of evil and its influence will be forever removed from history.
When Christ begins his millennial reign, nothing of Satan, and nothing of prior human history, will enter into the kingdom of God here on earth.
All of the burdens and barriers and problems of life that are common to humanity, will cease, and a new era under the rule of Christ will begin and continue for a period of 1000 years.
