Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, to open heaven’s gates. The Old Testament is filled with prophecies concerning the coming of the Messiah, and we know that His Kingdom continues on through us after His Resurrection and He ascended to heaven.

Isaiah talks about rebuilding and rising up.
