WAR NO MORE
"And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: Nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Isaiah 2:4). "And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off." In Isa. 60:10, 12, we have the explanation of the text. "And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee:...For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted." (Micah 4:3).
"And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning‑hooks: Nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Isaiah 2:4). This verse reads exactly the opposite of Joel 3:10, "Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: Let the weak say I am strong."
These scriptures reveal two classes of people. One class shall flow into the church by great groups: Kings, and great army leaders who have been building destroying weapons and preparing for war. Now the gospel has conquered them. While they are joining the church they gather their war implements, beating them into plowshares and pruninghooks. "Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise." Isa. 60:18. The other class, outside of the church, prepare for war, beating their plowshares into swords, and their pruninghooks into spears. One people is preparing for translation, while the other is getting ready for conquest. Therefore both scriptures run parallel and will be fulfilled at the same time. Thus the world would be divided into two great separate and distinct classes: Separating the wheat from the chaff, the goats from the sheep.
