Future Perfection

Isaiah poetically affirms that one day “every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of Yahweh will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it” (40:3-4). This may be hard to imagine, but the Bible affirms that everything in God’s universe will eventually be put in place as it ought to be. Sometimes we struggle with the ultimate realities of God’s gracious rewards and his just retribution. At times, we think that God’s revealed plan will leave some things “out of place” or “not quite right.” But from eternity’s perspective, we can be assured that we will together affirm that God’s resolve of earth’s realities will be perfect. There will be nothing inappropriate about God’s consummation of all things. No one will be able to look to a “bump” or a “crack” in God’s settled universe. We will celebrate his grace and affirm his justice. In the meantime, we must seek to understand something of God’s perfect attributes and trust him with his future resolution. Like those who viewed the ministry of the God-man, Jesus Christ, we will certainly agree that “he has done everything well” (Mk.7:37).
