Stem of Jesse

Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit.Isaiah 11:1

The Stem of Jesse is the Line of David, Jesus fulfilled this prophecy when Joseph (who is from the Line of David) registered Jesus as his Son. In the City of David (Bethlehem) Jesus came down to Earth to save the world from their sins.

The Branch (Jesus Christ) will bear fruit meaning righteousness. Remember Jesus said we will be known by the fruit we bear(Matthew 7)

The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. Isaiah 11:2

Remember when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River, the Holy Spirit came down like a Dove and baptized him with fire. The Spirit of The Lord (The Holy Spirit) rests on Jesus Christ to heal the sick, make the spiritual blind see, and set the captives free!

And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see,Nor make a decision by what His ears hear; But with righteousness He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He  will slay the wicked. Isaiah 11:3-4

Jesus the King of Kings and Lord of Lords didn’t come to judge but to save the world from its sins. Jesus first came as the Lamb of God and he will be returning as the Lion of Judah. With the rod of his mouth ( The Word of God) he will slay the wicked! Jesus is the Living Word and the truth shall set you Free! Amen!

    All through scripture God and Jesus speak of man coming in terms of vegetation. The stem of Jesse, bearing fruit that is good, the tree of life. Having deep roots and limbs grow outward like a tree to help others. So many references of growing upward to heaven like a tree.
