Vs. 9, “In that day they will say, ”Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD , we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” After the Tribulation….Jesus comes and establishes the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth! God would be victor and destroy the city (vs. 2) which really represents the world system. The poor & need will now have a place in this kingdom. There will be no more starving and those who enter the Millinieum will be saved (though not all their offspring will be).
Regarding application…End Times. As some of you know, the Mayan calender’s prophecy of Dec. 2012 is looming ever nearer. While I absolutely disagree with this, it does put out the message to the masses that we do indeed live in the end times. And one day the end times will bring about the 1000 year reign of Christ on Earth! And this is what we are reading in Isaiah right now! We have a chance to live as children of light to people who walk in darkness. Let’s do this!
