Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD,
“When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; And He will reign as
king and act wisely And do justice and righteousness in the land. Jeremiah 23:5
Here is another Messianic prophecy given by God to Jeremiah.God will raise up a righteous King! This Branch (Messiah) will be from the line of David. How can Jesus be from the Line of David when he is the Son of God?
Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth,to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. Luke 2:4-5
Joseph was from the Line of David, when the census was ordered, he registered his family including Jesus , as descendants of David.Now we know Joseph was not Jesus biological Father, however he basically“adopted” him legally as his own Son. This technically made Jesus from the Line of David
Also there is a lot of symbolic meaning with the Line of David. David was the first King that was picked and anointed by God. Saul was Israels first King however God did not pick him, and it ended terribly for Israel and Saul
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written,
“KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16
Jesus is the King of Kings, the fulfillment of being the
righteous Branch of David (King)
In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, ‘The LORD our righteousness.’Jeremiah 23:6
The title here for Jesus is “ The Lord (Yahweh) our Righteousness” basically meaning of the Messiah (Christ) God becoming Flesh to rule over the Earth! This has been fulfilled and Jesus is returning soon Amen!
