"On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth."
Isaiah 25: 7, 8
The mountain was Calvary. The shroud silenced the voice of the Messiah. The sheet wrapped his wounded body as he lay in the dark tomb. As dawn rose on Resurrection Day, so did our Victor over death. He dried the tears of Mary in the garden and he turned the consternation of his disciples into cries of joy. The shame and disgrace of a criminal's crucifixtion was transfigured as the King of Kings swallowed up death forever!
Hallelujah, Lord Jesus! Amen!
