Triumph & Victory

Shalom Tau Malachi:

As we're swiftly approaching the Feast of the Apocalypse, I was taken aback by something the prophet Isaiah said:

Thus said my Adonai YHVH,
The Holy One of Israel,
"You shall triumph by stillness and quiet;
Your victory shall come about
Through calm and confidence"

This recalls so much wisdom from other points of scripture regarding "who" triumphed in conflict for the One, "who" went victoriously before hero characters, and "who" could effect redemption. If faithful and elect souls are centered in the One, their affect in crisis and urgency is precisely how Isaiah describes. This isn't the smug show of charlatans claiming enlightenment from a false act of sentimental peace and serenity. Instead, this stillness and quiet, and calm and confidence bears a deeply familiar presence that shifts one's reflection in another. In other words, we're hearing a quality of the station of gnosis.

What more could be shared about this lucidity with which Isaiah speaks of triumph and victory in the End of Days?
