Branch of God

In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. Isaiah 4:2

Who is “The Branch Of The Lord”? And who are the survivors of Israel?

Throughout the book of Isaiah we see the Messiah being referred to as “The Branch of The Lord”.  Isaiah later clearly identifies who the Messiah is with prophecies in Chapter 7, 9, 11, 53, ect. All these prophecies are fulfilled by Jesus Christ, Isaiah by the Holy Spirit clearly revealed  Jesus is the Messiah, God in the flesh that Israel and the world has long be waiting for

Think of a branch, its fully connected to the trunk of a tree. They are in total unison of each other yet separate. This is exactly how the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit relationship works. The Trinity is One God fully in unison with three entities.

‘In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch of David to spring forth; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. Jeremiah 33:15

The prophet Jeremiah by the Holy Spirit also describes the Messiah, Jesus Christ, as a Branch. Jesus fulfilled these prophecies through Joseph registering him in the census as the line of David

The survivors of Israel are the remnant of Jews who have accepted Jesus as the Messiah (Christ). There will come a day as prophesied in Zechariah that Christ will deliver the Jewish people as the Lion of Judah and they will accept him as the Son of God

I say then, God has not rejected His people, has He? May it never be! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. Romans 11:1

As Paul taught God has not forgotten the Jewish people, just as there was a remnant in Elijahs day , there will also be a remnant during Christs returns. As prophesied in Revelation 7, there will be the 12 tribes of Israel around the throne of Jesus Christ. God makes a promise and he keeps it, God does not change!
