Our chapter (32) in Isaiah starts, “Behold a king will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule in justice.” This surely visualises God’s king, the Lord Jesus, at last reigning over the earth. There will also be “princes” reigning who ”will rule with justice.” At last the world will experience true justice. The words of the prophecy imply the “reign” will initially be against a scene in which the world has become “a dry place” and “a weary land” [v.2] How spiritually “dry” it is today!
The “princes” who “will rule” will provide “a shelter from the storm” [v.2] which will occur as the world is transformed and learns to accept that there is an all-righteous king reigning. True justice will at last happen, “the fool will no more be called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be honourable.” [v.5] Human hearts will no longer be “busy with iniquity to practice ungodliness, to utter error concerning the LORD.” [v.6]
May we, by the grace of God, be there and among the “noble (who) plan noble things…” [v.8] The time will then develop “when the effect of righteousness will be peace, and the result of righteousness quietness and trust forever” [v.17]
Jesus told his disciples of the wonder that, “when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” [Matt. 19 v.28] In Revelation he said, “The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations” [Rev 2 v.26], it appears that these are the “princes” mentioned in our Isaiah chapter who “will rule with justice” as we read in v. 2 of Isaiah.
We must make sure we are God’s people now who “hold the faith in Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory” [James 2 v.1, also today’s reading]. And then in that day, looking at v.18 in our Isaiah chapter, we will be among those of whom God says, “My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places” when our “king will reign.”
