Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. Jeremiah 23:5-6
Behold , The Days are Coming! For hundreds of years Israel waited for their coming Messiah, and that day came when Jesus Christ was born in a manger. Think about that, the event of the Nativity was the fulfillment of many prophecies throughout time.
A righteous Branch and a King shall reign and prosper. When we think about a Branch, it grows or come forth from the trunk of the tree. This is in reference to the incarnation of Christ. Jesus Christ became a man through the nation of Israel, born of a Virgin, conceived by the Holy Spirit. Being fully God and fully man, Christ has come to save the world from their sins, and establish his throne as King of all Kings and Lord of all Lords
The King shall reign and prosper and shall execute judgment and justice on the Earth. The Messiah didn’t just come to save Israel, the prophecy foretells for the entire Earth. Jesus is the Light of the Gentiles (Luke 2:32)
In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. Isaiah 4:2
The prophet Isaiah as called the Messiah , the Branch of The Lord (Yahweh), again another reference to the Incarnation of Christ (Isaiah 7:14) and notice it says the “fruit of the Earth”, Christ is not just the fruit of Israel, Christ is bringing the fruit to the world. What is the fruit? The gospel to the entire world, Christ died, Christ is Risen, and Christ will come again
Quoting Jeremiah again, The King Shall Reign (Jeremiah 23:5) Jesus Christ, the righteous branch, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords is reigning on his throne seated at the right hand of God the Father. Glory to the newborn King! Amen!
