Redeemed Shall Walk There



Redeemed Shall Walk There. Only when we walk the roads of the new Heaven and new Earth will we really understand the true meaning of spiritual joy.

1 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;
2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice,
Even with joy and singing. . .

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing.
For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
7 The parched ground shall become a pool,
And the thirsty land springs of water;
In the habitation of jackals, where each lay,
There shall be grass with reeds and rushes. . .

But the redeemed shall walk there,
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Isaiah 35:1-2, 5-7, 9b-10, NKJV


Redeemed Shall Walk There


Only when we walk the roads of the new Heaven and new Earth will we really understand the true meaning of spiritual joy.



The things that Isaiah is describing in this passage show many of the changes that will take place in the New Earth. We often ponder heaven in terms of verses 5 and 6:

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then the lame shall leap like a deer,
And the tongue of the dumb sing
.



Several years ago I worked at a Christian home for the mentally retarded; how often I thought of these children reaching the Kingdom of Heaven with a perfect body and perfect mind. What a glorious thought that is! No more aches and pains, no more diseases, no more sorrows, and no more sin.



Isaiah reminds us that even the world we live in is imprisoned in sin. All living things, plants and animals, are affected by our sin. But that will not be so on the New Earth. Look at the things mentioned in this passage:

The wilderness and the wasteland will be glad.
The desert shall rejoice and blossom with joy and singing.
Waters will burst forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
The parched ground becomes a pool and the thirsty land, springs of water.



It is good for us to ponder our true home.


But the redeemed shall walk there,
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away
.



As you go about your day, remember that this world is not our true home. A glorious home awaits those who have been redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ. Truly, we cannot begin to imagine the true joys we will experience in the new heavens and on the new earth!
