OAKS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Isaiah 61:3b ” They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. ”
The Scene: A forest of oak trees, though sparse in their spacing and number, stand tall. The ground around them is barren of any other vegetation; no weeds, no vines, bushes, etc. The tall tress are a representation of God’s holy people, a people of righteousness, those filled with His Spirit, trying to do right, followers of His Word.
The missing ground clutter–symbolic of the world’s sin nature. Works of evil have been removed.
Matthew 24:13-14 “But he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
Psalm 96:1-2,11-13 “Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. v.11-13 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the people in his truth.”
