24 The oxen ['eleph] likewise and the young asses [`ayir] that ear [`abad] the ground ['adamah] shall eat ['akal] clean [chamiyts] provender [baliyl], which hath been winnowed [zarah] with the shovel [rachath] and with the fan [mizreh]. KJV-Interlinear
24 and the oxen and the donkeys that work the ground will eat seasoned fodder, which has been winnowed with shovel and fork. ESV
Continuing from the previous verse, Isaiah describes how phenomenal the prosperity will be. Typically in an agricultural setting, crops are planted and harvested, and the best of the seed, and the best of the harvest is held back for sale, or for storage and future sale, or for future planting.
The best of the crop is certainly not fed to the animals.
However, in the scenario being described, the harvest will be so abundant, and the prosperity so phenomenal, that even the animals will be eating the best of the best foods.
Donkeys that ear the ground, is a phrase describing their work in pulling a plow. And the oxen and the donkeys, are the working beasts of the ancient farm. They would be typically fed what was available, and certainly not the best of the crop.
However, in the millennium, everything will change. The burdens of life from the past and present will no longer be in effect. Because, we now have a description of the abundance that will become available to those who have already turned their lives to Christ, and who have survived, by the grace of God, the disasters of the tribulation.
God is truth. Anything that is not God related, is false.
Turning to God through Christ, by way of doctrine, is turning toward truth, and the ultimate success that it provides.
Turning away from God, is turning toward the false, and certain disaster and failure.
Life does not exist only in this physical world. If you have noticed, the generations of the past are no longer here and yet time marches on. When we are gone, time will continue tomorrow, next year, and on and on, and our presence is not required for the continuation of time.
Therefore, it is wise not only to plan for this life, but more so for the next.
