Read Isaiah 66:10-14

Read Isaiah 66:10-14
Rejoice with Jerusalem; be glad for her,
    all you that love this city!
Rejoice with her now,
    all you that have mourned for her!
11 You will enjoy her prosperity,
    like a child at its mother's breast.

12 The Lord says, “I will bring you lasting prosperity; the wealth of the nations will flow to you like a river that never goes dry. You will be like a child that is nursed by its mother, carried in her arms, and treated with love. 13 I will comfort you in Jerusalem, as a mother comforts her child. 14 When you see this happen, you will be glad; it will make you strong and healthy. Then you will know that I, the Lord, help those who obey me, and I show my anger against my enemies.”

Return to Jerusalem will be the result of obedience to God.  Isaiah foresees what is also foreseen in the book of Revelation - a time when people live in the presence of God in a new city - For Isaiah the city is Jerusalem - in Revelation, the city is a heavenly city come down to Earth.
Lord we long for the day on which you will judge all the Earth and all people will live by Your justice.
