Prince of Peace

O LORD, You are my God;
         I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name;
         For You have worked wonders,
         Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness. 
Isaiah 25:1

In Isaiah's prophecy of the Second Advent of Christ, the remnant of Israel will finally receive and exalt Him. "For the time being the One whom they refused to acknowledge as king was taken up to glory and seated, in fulfillment of Psalm 110:1, at God’s right hand. During the long years of His personal absence from this earth, Israel has become the nation of the wandering foot, seeking rest and peace in vain because the Prince of Peace, who alone could give what their hearts yearned for, was to them a stranger. But in that coming day they will recognize and adore Him and so enter into fullness of joy." (Harry A. Ironside) 
What a glorious day that will be!
