Christians are encouraged to long for the coming of Christ. We are to eagerly anticipate His return, first for His bride, the church, and then in His second advent, when He returns to earth as the King of kings and Lord of lords. And in Isaiah 63:1-6, Isaiah is given a glimpse of that future day, when Jesus returns in all His might and glory, bringing the final judgment against Satan, Antichrist, the false prophet and all the nations of the world that stand opposed to God. Isaiah records the words of Jesus Himself as He declares that His day of redemption has come. He will finish what He began, completing the divine plan for the redemption of His chosen people, the recreation of the world, and the removal of Satan and all those who follow him from the scene. The final phase of God’s judgment, unleashed during the seven years of the Tribulation, will come to a close as Jesus defeats the forces of evil and establishes righteousness on earth once and for all. And nobody longs for that day more than Jesus Himself.
