PICTURE PRAISE

 

He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. 

Isaiah 2:4

 

We had the privilege of having some friends visit the Solomon Islands while they were working on the Holland America cruise ship. They only had a few hours off ship, but we were able to take them out to the language area we work in just kilometers outside the capital city Honiara. We stopped in at a village that has many relics from the WWII battles between the Japanese and the Americans. The jungle is overtaking these relics and showing the power and might of man to be transient. It is a wonderful picture of how God’s kingdom is stronger and longer lasting than any earthly kingdom; He will come again and reign in peace.
