Isaiah 4:2 On that Day, the plant that the Lord has grown will become glorious in it’s beauty and the Land will be fruitful, the pride of the survivors in the Land.

Isaiah 4:3-6 Those who remain in Jerusalem, whose survival was decreed, will be called holy. Isaiah 29:4, Zechariah 13:7-9 When the Lord washes away the filth of Jerusalem by a spirit of judgement burning like fire, He will create a cloud by day and a flame by night over Mt Zion, to be a covering for shade and shelter.

Isaiah 14:1-2 The Lord will carry out the destruction decreed upon the whole Land. Ezekiel 7:5-9, Isaiah 34:5
‘Judah is brought low ‘, only a holy remnant saved. Romans 9:27 Then all the Christian Israelites of God will go to live in all of the holy Land. Isaiah 35:1-10, Ezekiel 34:11-16. Isaiah tells of events soon to happen, the coming Day of the Lord’s destruction in the Mid East. A ‘single Day’ of a fire judgement, a seemingly natural occurrence of a huge solar flare. Then; His people: faithful Christians from every tribe, race, nation and language, will go on a second Exodus to all of the holy Land, before the Return of Jesus.
