To say that “one day the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain,” meant much. This mountain was the emblem of all that is good and holy, all that is right.
Jesus also spoke a number of times of a celebratory feast to be enjoyed with God.
Though this future is yet to be realized, believers can enjoy something of that glorious vision today. It is why Christians will speak of that time as “now . . . and not yet.”
