Isaiah 11:9 "None will harm or destroy another on My entire holy mountain, for the land will be as full of the knowledge of the LORD as the sea is filled with water." (HCSB)
It is very clear that we as people are often harming and destroying one another as this verse says. We destroy one another in our homes with our words and we destroy one another with our anger and slander wherever other people are in the equation. Your help in all of your conflict does not come from a good example, a list of instructions, or even a better situation but it comes from the very presence of God! Christian, what is this about and what is this constant battle we have with others to point us to? We see here that our ability to live in peace with one another to the glory of God comes on God ’s holy mountain, that is to say the place where God is dwelling. In scripture God ’s holy mountain is simply a term used to speak of where God dwells. Consider this believer, peace in life does not come from a philosophy or set of rules but from intimacy with God! Your help in all of your conflict does not come from a good example, a list of instructions, or even a better situation but it comes from the very presence of God! What we need most as people is to exist in nearness to God and if you are in Christ you are already near to God. God is the only holy, the only good, the only lovely person and so it is that if we are going to live at peace with others we need to realize that this can only occur when God lives His own life through us through His Holy Spirit making us His dwelling place.
