Isaiah 25:1-28:13; Galatians 3:10-22; Psalm 61:1-8; Proverbs 23:17-18
“On this mountain the Lord of Hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well aged wine, of rich food full of marrow,
of aged wine well refined.
And He will swallow up on this mountain the covering
that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.
He will swallow up death forever;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all the faces,
and the reproach of his peoples he will take away
from all the earth,
for the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 25:6-8
On Mount Calvary, the Lord’s Body and Blood–rich and full with all that made Him God and Man–swallowed up the veil of sin that covered the people of all nations since Eden’s dark day.
Christ’s victory over sin, death and the devil swallowed up death’s claim over all who believe in the One who wipes away their tears and turns mourning into joy!
Lord God Heavenly Father, the prophet Isaiah spoke of that glorious mountain hundreds of years before Calvary was graced by your Son. You spoke through Isaiah, painting a picture of your ultimate reign, of life forever with you where we will be fed with the richest of food and given the finest wines. Until that time, O Lord, we remember your promise to those who believe as we celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Thank you for the feasting now and the forever feast to come. In Jesus’ precious name we pray, Amen.
