19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21 the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
What is the ideal world?
From a humanistic perspective, an ideal world means gaining materialistic things, such as a new car, more money, or a better house. People say they want to live in an ideal world, but they only consider physical things like eating well and living in a good environment. However, all of these things are only temporary. God said that His ideal world is a world where both your body and spirit live an ideal life. It is a life in which you acknowledge and receive the eternal God and live as His counterpart. A life of living with the Lord is the greatest ideal world. If you strive to achieve the ideal world in the wrong way—according to your own thoughts and perspectives—you will never be satisfied. You must center on the Trinity and the Lord and achieve the ideal world in your own life.
When you learn from God, you can learn how to achieve the ideal world. The body should live an ideal world on the earth, and the spirit should live an ideal life of love up in Heaven. Then it can be considered an eternal ideal world.
How can the ideal world be achieved?
The ideal world is achieved when people with many diverse talents and abilities come together and participate in God’s history, doing God’s work and fulfilling His Will. Only if you participate in God’s history can you feel the ideal world in reality. This process cannot be done for you nor can it be done by simply being a spectator. Each person much realize the ideal world on their own by listening to and taking action on the Word. The ideal world can only be achieved through absolute love with the Holy Trinity and Lord.
The ideal world is fulfilled gradually
As people live their daily lives, they act according to their own thoughts, sometimes considering only one aspect. However, when God takes action, He doesn’t do things in the same way that people do things. God allows time for things to grow and mature in order to achieve the ideal world. For example, He took a long time to create the heavens and the earth before creating human beings. We have to realize that God works in stages and continually learn the Word. By listening to the Word and taking action upon it, the ideal world can be achieved. The ideal world isn’t just fulfilled in theory, but it is fulfilled in reality when you live your life loving the Holy Trinity and the Lord.
In the Old Testament, the ideal world was achieved at the level of servants, and in the New Testament, the ideal world was achieved at the level of children. At the time of the Second Coming, the ideal world will be achieved at the level of brides when you live as the beloved counterpart of the Trinity. The work of one time period doesn’t just end, but it continues on into the next time period. In this way, God works centering on the Messiah in every time period.
