Mountain of the Lord, mountain of the house of the Lord, temple of the Lord, The Throne of the Lord, glory of the Lord. These descriptive headings found in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Micah, and Zechariah help us to see Christ the Lord in His glory as He will reign over the earth in His coming kingdom. In Isaiah 2:2-3 and Micah 4:1-8, the mountain (which is Mount Zion), is where the rebuilt Jerusalem will be and where the new millennial temple will be built. It will be the chief of the mountains—the highest of all the mountains around (some even say that it will be the only mountain remaining in Israel, and even in the entire world, after the great earthquakes of the great tribulation). It is where the law of God will be taught. People from all around the world will stream to this mountain to be taught of the Lord.
Now it will come about that
In the last days,
The mountain of the house of the Lord
Will be established as the chief of the mountains,
And will be raised above the hills;
And all the nations will stream to it.
3 And many peoples will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
That He may teach us concerning His ways,
And that we may walk in His paths.”
For the law will go forth from Zion,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4 And He will judge between the nations,
And will render decisions for many peoples;
And they will hammer their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not lift up sword against nation,
And never again will they learn war.
The most predominant place on the mountain will be the temple, which is called in Zechariah 6:11-15, the temple of the Lord. This temple is also referred to as the house of the Lord—for indeed it is His house. From the temple the Lord sits on His throne; and it is from the temple that He will teach His law to the people.
Notice that the mountain, the temple (or the house), and the throne are described as “of the Lord.” This is because they indeed are His. The mountain is His; the temple is His house; and the throne is His. In fact He is the one who is the builder of the temple in the millennium (Zech. 6:12). And we know that He is the creator of all things. The whole world is His. And at the center of the world in Jerusalem will shine a great light—the light of His glory. Yes, the glory of the Lord will shine brightly in Jerusalem from the temple where He sits, reigning on His throne. (Read also Isa. 60:1-3; Jer. 3:17; Ezek. 43:4-7; Zech. 6:11-15; Mic. 4:4-8.)
