    what does it mean??? Is that till will happen some day sooner or latter written or expresed in an araic or biblical english ? it sounds to me like it means that something will hapen in God's terms or speaking in mistycal terms .is that right?

    It simply means: "It will happen (that....................)", it is basically the language of the King James Bible (published 1611).

    In biblical language: "It shall come to pass that A shall (do) X."
    In modern English: "A will (do) X."

    See here for various translations of a verse from Isaiah.
