It is generally agreed by most prophetic teachers that the coasts, isles and coastlands are all a reference to the Americas and Britain, for example, or the places that the gentiles reside. Even though these countries are responsible for qazillions of missionaries, great humanitarian acts, and the rebuilding of many war torn countries, these places are cultures that remain, to this day, as the source of greed, immorality, and gluttony. After all, we are the largest consumers in the world. This is because of the abandonment of Torah (the tree of life), for the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
The word coasts itself, is a testimony to the nature of the cultures of the isles. We are told in Bere’shiyt (Genesis) 10:5 that the isles are of the Gentiles. The word isles, or coastlands, is from the Hebrew word 'iy (אי). The verbal root of this word is avah (אוה). This word is translated as desires, covet, and lust.
Mishlei (Proverbs) 21:26He covets greedily all the day long, but the righteous give and spare not.
But there will come a day when the Torah of our God will be restored, and the coastlands that have turned from YHVH our ’Elohiym with their own lusts and desires, will once again turn to His ways.
Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 42:1-4Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon Him; He shall bring forth justice to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall He not break and the smoking flax shall He not quench; He shall bring forth justice in truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till He has set justice in the earth; and the coasts shall wait for His Torah.
Shalom Alecheim! ◊
