Verses 7-8: On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
Again, the details are impossible for me to decipher. It does seem clear God will (has) remove death as we know it, from our eternal futures. “He will swallow up death forever.” We no longer need to fear death, because God has ultimate power over death. He “will wipe away the tears from all faces…” God cares for us, and has promised us eternal life with him, through Christ.
Father God, you calm and reassure us with your Word. You are with us always, every minute, and will be with us through eternity. Thank-you, Lord. Amen
