Is it referencing the first coming of Christ, the second coming of Christ, a 1,000 year millennial reign after the tribulation, the future kingdom, or some mix?
Isaiah 35:1 - 10
NKJV - 1 The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose. 2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, The excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, The excellency of our God.

It's describing the millennial Kingdom when Jesus reigns and Israel is restored. v. 2 They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God. v.5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped (Israel spiritual blindness will be reversed and they will respond to the Gospel). v. 8 And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness;--this refers to the way leading the redeemed back to Jerusalem and to Christ.
It's describing the the first coming of Jesus into the world. v. 2 They shall see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God: In Jesus Christ v.5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped: as Jesus proclaims the kingdom with power and through miracles v. 8 And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Way of Holiness;--this refers to the way of salvation. John the Baptist prepared the way and Jesus completed it. Regards Philip
When you include also the book of Revelations in chapters 20-22 the natural interpretation of this is that there will be a 1,000 year reign of Christ on Earth, with the people of God making this world as God intended prior to Genesis chapter 1, before Satan made this earth a mess, which God came a put back on track. At the end of this reign Satan is removed from the PIT he is sealed in during this time and again causes WAR between people of God and those that are born during this era. No other explanation makes sense with this revelation in Isaiah and Revelations.
