“A little child shall guide them…”
Isaiah foretells the coming of a child who will set all things right; who will bring true peace so that even nature (animals who are natural enemies) will sit down together in harmony. Two thousand years on, we still await this time of peace and concord. “The root of Jesse” has budded forth, yet we still have hatred and evil in the world. Until Jesus Christ comes at the end of days, we have to be like “midwives” bringing forth His spirit into the world so we can work toward “that day” when God’s will shall be done.
