On that day the root of Jesse shall stand as a signal
to the peoples; the nations shall inquire of him,
and his dwelling shall be glorious.
Isaiah 11:10 is a Bible verse in the Old Testament that speaks of Jesus Christ being raised up like a beacon to draw people of all nations to Him.
This particular chapter in Isaiah focuses on the second coming of Christ, His kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. This is what Jesus instructed us to pray for in Matthew 6:10.
When He answers that prayer, He will “stand as a signal to the peoples” as Isaiah 11:10 says. Some Hebrew meanings of “stand” are: abide, arise, dwell, be employed, establish, repair, serve.
We must be on the lookout for Him. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 says, “the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”
If we’re expecting Him, we will find Him. He will arise in a way we can recognize Him. Looking at the Hebrew meaning above of “stand” suggests it could be in a place of employment, a place where He is busy repairing or serving, a place where He is established.
Isaiah 11:10 says, “On that day the root of Jesse shall stand as a signal to the peoples…” Signal in Hebrew means: a flag, a sail, a token, a gleam from afar.
Whatever signal He uses, whether it’s a physical one or merely a light He shines from within us spiritually, He will make it plain so we will be drawn to Him…like a groom calling out to His bride who loves Him.
The last part of Isaiah 11:10 says, “the nations shall inquire of him, and his dwelling shall be glorious.”
Not only will those who love Him be drawn to Him, but all the nations will recognize Him and they will inquire of Him. It will be a miraculous phenomenon that will draw ALL nations.
The word “dwelling” in Hebrew translates to: peacefully, consolation, matrimony, an abode, quiet.
Those of us who love Him will no more hear the noise and chaos of the world, but will be drawn to the peaceful and quiet matrimony (married life) with our Lord, our Husband—the way He designed for us to live in perfect harmony with Him.
There will be no more pain or destruction. His dwelling shall be glorious—full of His splendor and honor. We will feel loss and pain no longer, but will be forever healed, content and joyful in the loving embrace of our Saviour.
Study the Bible verse of Isaiah 11:10 and watch for His coming.
