In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and He shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. Jeremiah 33:15
Jesus is the Branch
As foretold in Jeremiah 33, Jesus is the Branch from the house of David. According to the prophet Jeremiah, He shall execute justice and righteousness. He shall build the Temple of the Lord and bring fruit to the people of Israel. He was to come from the root of Jesse and David, which the Lord stated would never be changed. Even the Gentiles would come to Him.
Jesus was the Mashiach
He is the Jewish Messiah, sent to the world and foretold in the Bible. As stated in Jeremiah, the Lord planned the birth of Jesus. In fact, He stated that as in the creation of the world, His plan would not be changed. He hinted at His long term view of sending down His Son to live with us. He promised a Messiah to the Jewish people, as well as the Gentiles.
Jesus was Jewish
We cannot miss this fact. God purposely did this. He sent Jesus first to the people of Israel, the ones who have held the Covenant of God for centuries. Prophecy after prophecy in the Old Testament have given clues to the methods of how Jesus would return.
More Christians in the western world are beginning to reach out of the New Testament, however, in the past, that has not been so. Churches glossed over the fact that Jesus is Jewish, and He carried out the Messianic prophecies from the Bible. So, Jesus is the Branch. He is the Branch extending from the root of God, in the House of David.
Lord, help us to see You and know You better.
