Go to Bible: Isaiah 35
 
Isa 35:1

“The wilderness and the dry land will be glad.” The prophet Isaiah suddenly shifts from talking about the destruction of Edom to the restoration of the earth in the Millennial Kingdom. The shift of subjects and the joy of the Millennial Kingdom is emphasized in the Hebrew text by moving the word “glad” to the first word in the sentence. To better represent that in English we might say, “Glad will be the wilderness and dry land.” It is easy to see the harsh contrast between what will become of Edom—“Its streams will be turned into pitch, its dust into sulfur, and its land will become burning pitch” (Isa. 34:9)—and what will happen to the land in the Millennial Kingdom when the land will be glad and the desert rejoice. Then the prophet continues speaking about the future Millennial Kingdom of Christ through the whole chapter (Isa. 35:1-10). [For more verses in Isaiah that speak of the Millennial Kingdom, see commentary on Isaiah 2:2. For more on Christ’s future kingdom on earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].

Isa 35:2

“Lebanon’s glory.” Lebanon was known for its lush forests and tall cedars. The wilderness and dry places will be like Lebanon.

“Carmel...Sharon.” Mount Carmel was one of the lushest places in Israel, along with the plain of Sharon. It is a wonderful promise that in the future Israel will be lush like Lebanon, Carmel, and Sharon.
