This topic is dealing with what is called the End Times; End of Times; the Last Days; or the Final Days. This is a complex and difficult topic, which I don’t typically address. There are different approaches and different conclusions offered by various Bible scholars on this subject.
This article is going to focus on just one facet of this broad and complicated subject. We’ll be contemplating the statement that Jesus shall surely stand upon the earth at some point in the future of mankind.
For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. (Job 19:25 ESV)
This verse clearly says that our Redeemer (at the last) WILL stand upon the earth.
And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. (Zech 14:4)
In this passage, the Bible tells us that one day Jesus will stand upon the Mount of Olives—a very specific location on this earth. This area of the map may serve as a focus for our attention in coming months and years.
For behold, the Lord is coming out of His place; He will come down and tread on the high places of the earth. (Mic 1:3)
This is a poetic verse from the Bible informing us that Jesus, the Lord, will come from His place (Heaven) and walk upon the “high places” of the earth. When the Bible refers to “high places,” it is referring to places of worship on elevated areas of ground.
The truth is that wherever the Lord Jesus will stand upon the earth shall instantly become a “high place” because Jesus is worthy of all praise, worship, honor, glory, and power forever and ever. (Jude 1:25; Rev 4:11; 5:12)
Jesus is the Savior, Redeemer, and Deliverer sent to earth by God the Father. When He does, indeed, stand upon the earth again, Jesus’ presence will stimulate and provoke uncontrollable worship and praise from all over the earth. (Rev 15:4) All who have served the kingdom of God will rejoice in that day. Glory to God!
