An Ensign Of The People
by Wayne Blank
"In that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people"
After the Exodus, during the 40-year Wilderness Journey (that was intended to have taken days, not years - see A Journey Without A Destination), the tribes of Israel encamped around The Tabernacle, each under their own standard, an ensign on a pole.
"And The Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Every man of the children of Israel [see Children of Jacob] shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father's house: far off about the Tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch." (Numbers 2:1-2 KJV)
"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of The Lord, as the waters cover the sea." [see Scenes From The Millennium]
