The Ultimate David Is Coming Isaiah 11:1 Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.
The Branch Doctrine 2 Samuel 23:5 Truly is not my house so with God? For He has made an everlasting covenant with me, ordered in all things, and secured; for all my salvation and all my desire, will He not indeed make it grow? Isaiah 4:2 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.
The Branch Doctrine Zechariah 3:8 Now listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who are sitting in front of you—indeed they are men who are a symbol, for behold, I am going to bring in My servant the Branch. Matthew 2:23 NET He came to a town called Nazareth and lived there. Then what had been spoken by the prophets was fulfilled, that Jesus would be called a Nazarene.
Messiah Is Anointed With The Spirit Isaiah 11:2 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.
The Messiah Knows All Things Isaiah 11:3 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; Luke 6:8 But He knew what they were thinking Luke 11:17 But He knew their thoughts and said to them
Messiah Will Be The Just Judge Isaiah 11:4-5 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. Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins, And faithfulness the belt about His waist.
The Messianic Reign Isaiah 11:6-7 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little boy will lead them. Also the cow and the bear will graze, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The New World Messiah Creates Isaiah 11:8-9 The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den. They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord As the waters cover the sea. War Death Sea Now yes yes yes Millennium no yes yes Eternal no no no
The Shoot is Also The Root Isaiah 11:10 HCSB On that day the root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples. The nations will seek Him, and His resting place will be glorious.
The Son of David Is David’s Lord! Matthew 22:42-46 “What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?” They said to Him, “The son of David.” He said to them, “Then how does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying, ‘The LORD said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Until I put Your enemies beneath Your feet” ’? “If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his son?” No one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question.
The Glorious Resting Place Isaiah 11:10 HCSB On that day the root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples. The nations will seek Him, and His resting place will be glorious. Deuteronomy 12:8-9 You shall not do at all what we are doing here today, every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes; for you have not as yet come to the resting place and the inheritance which the LORD your God is giving you.
The Glorious Resting Place Genesis 9:25-27 So he said, “Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants He shall be to his brothers.” And he said, “Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem; and let Canaan be a servant to Him. May God enlarge Japheth and let Him dwell in the tents of Shem; And let Canaan be His servant.” Genesis 12:6b-7 …Now the Canaanite was then in the land. Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, “To your seed I will give this land.”
Where Is Your Heart’s Desire? Psalm 132:13-14 For the LORD has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. “This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.” Ezekiel 37:25 “They will live in the land that I gave to Jacob My servant, in which your fathers lived; and they will live in it, they, and their sons and their sons’ sons, forever; and David My servant will be their prince forever.”
