26 Moreover the light ['owr] of the moon [labanah] shall be as the light ['owr] of the sun [chammah], and the light ['owr] of the sun [chammah] shall be sevenfold [shib`athayim], as the light ['owr] of seven [sheba`] days [yowm], in the day [yowm] that the LORD [Yahovah] bindeth up [chabash] the breach [sheber] of his people [`am], and healeth [rapha'] the stroke [machats] of their wound [makkah]. KJV-Interlinear
26 Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day when the LORD binds up the brokenness of his people, and heals the wounds inflicted by his blow. ESV
So many people have a phenomenal opportunity now, to learn and grow and be blessed by God in this contemporary world, and yet they ignore it, preferring social politeness, and we have nothing and we are nowhere near, the trials and troubles that are going to occur in the future tribulation.
Isaiah goes on to describe the tremendous intensity of the Lord’s blessings, which will follow the intense sufferings that believers in Christ will be made to endure through those final days of human history.
This description of the intensity of light, is a description of blessing. Light is generally always used to describe truth and prosperity and blessing and clarity of sight, while darkness is typically the opposite.
This intensification of light, is not described as intensification of heat, which would bring pressure and suffering, but this describes around-the-clock blessing. While the moon rules the night, it is as bright as day. And the sun rules the day, and it is brighter still throughout the entire week.
In our current day we refer to this continuous and ongoing activity as being 24 – 7, to describe an ongoing and continuous around the clock, all day, every day, activity that never ends throughout the day, throughout the week, throughout the year.
And after the second advent, and as the millennial reign of Christ begins, this intensification of blessing will begin and it will continue throughout the reign of Christ. And, it will never end.
There will be a phenomenal contrast between the destruction and brutality of the tribulation, as compared to the blessing and prosperity and happiness of the millennium.
Everyone throughout history has had an opportunity to enjoy this type of blessing.
But even in our current generation, with all of the blessings of the Internet and smart phones and computers and such, which enhance our chances for a phenomenal life, but unfortunately the general trend of people is to not take the spiritual life seriously, and not pursue it with a deep desire as they should.
The Christian life therefore, becomes just another activity in life, with certain rules and expectations, which society has defined, but which are a departure from the real expectations that are taught in the Bible.
And the real tragedy and the real failure of life will be that missed opportunity that can be so easily obtained now, but which people just don’t want bad enough.
In the final part of this verse where Isaiah mentions the binding up and the healing of wounds, is a description of phenomenal suffering that has occurred. The suffering that is beyond description and even beyond imagination.
And yet despite the tremendous odds against them, people will turn to Christ and they will turn to doctrine, and their faith will grow in the face of certain disaster and death during those tribulation years, and they will be delivered.
The reward, will be mind-boggling prosperity and blessing.
When Jesus first came into this world, He was here for thirty-three years and change.
The actual Son of God was here, and the opportunity to see Him and speak with Him, and learn phenomenal things, was available to everyone. And yet the only thing that people wanted was to have their physical ailments healed, and to see their enemies, the Romans, defeated. No one was interested in a destiny in heaven, or in the truth of the universe.
Today, we have the completed Scriptures. And today, we have the completed plan and method for advancing to phenomenal heights within our life. And yet the general trend is nothing more than that of lip service, and social politeness.
Each person has to decide for themselves, whether they will be on the social bandwagon, or whether they will find within themselves, the desire to learn and grow up in their spiritual life.
