God Will Care for Us!

All Saints, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: Isaiah 25:6-9

This is the promise! This is the dream! Today’s scripture passage features Isaiah’s prophesy that God will provide a feast for all people, remove the shroud of death, take away all of our sadness, and bring us to God, “for whom we have waited.” Whew! If that doesn’t warrant an “Alleluia!” I don’t know what does. As Christians, we believe that this prophesy is a foretelling of Jesus coming to walk amongst us, teach us, and carrying our sins to the cross for us – eliminating the finality of death with his resurrection. This image of the heavenly banquet assures us on this All Saints Day that the saints who lived and died telling the story of Jesus are now sitting on the right hand of God, “rejoic(ing) in his salvation.”
