|Isaiah 25:6-8 |
6 And on this mountain the LORD of hosts will make to all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.1
7 And on this mountain he will destroy the covering of the face that is cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.2
8 He will swallow up death in victory, and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; and the rebuke of his people he will take away from all the earth; for the LORD has spoken it.
2 on this mountain he will destroy the covering of the face that is cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. The understanding of the peoples of the earth is veiled. They are covered so they cannot see the evil of their ways; neither can they understand how radically different from God they are, failing to measure up to what is required to dwell in heaven. When a man seeks God, that veil is removed by the Holy Spirit, which convinces a man of sin. The Holy Spirit is given to those who, when seeking the Lord's voice, are obedient to Him; and when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.
