What political leaders mean when they predict a “new world order” is not always clear. Yet the Bible does speak of a reordering of life on earth, under the rule of Jesus Christ. While we don’t know when it will be, the Bible assures us that it will come. The prophet Isaiah spoke of this new world order when he wrote in chapter 65, “No longer will babies die when only a few days old. No longer will adults die before they have lived a full life. No longer will people be considered old at one hundred! Only the cursed will die that young! … For my people will live as long as trees, and my chosen ones will have time to enjoy their hard won gains. They will not work in vain, and their children will not be doomed to misfortune, they are people blessed by the LORD, and their children, too, will be blessed. I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers! The wolf and the lamb will feed together. The lion will eat hay like a cow. But the snakes will eat dust. In those days no one will be hurt or destroyed on my holy mountain. I, the LORD, have spoken!” Needless to say, God’s new world order will be really new.
