Day Five of “Getting Ready for Christmas.” Read Isaiah 11:1-9.
Like Isaiah 9:1-7, Isaiah 11 is a messianic passage of Scripture which looks forward to the coming of the King.
This passage gives us several themes to note.
First, the King comes from the line of David. Out of the stump of Jesse, David’s father, the Messiah will come.
Second, the Spirit of the Lord will be upon Him. The Spirit will bring wisdom and understanding. The King will delight in the fear of the Lord.
Third, He will be beyond any human understanding. He will judge with righteousness.
Fourth, He will judge the earth.
Finally, He will bring genuine peace.
We have so much for which to praise God. May God bless you as you get ready for Christmas.
