Messianic Prophecy : THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

January 4, 2013

Jeremiah 23:5

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness; A King shall reign and prosper, And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Prophecy is defined as a prediction of what will happen in the future. This verse is a prophetic word of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus first came to earth as God’s only begotten Son. To sacrifice His life for us, so that we may find eternal life, joy and peace in Him.

The branch or kingly line of David was cut off in 586 B.C. (KJV Study Bible Jeremiah 23:5-6 notes), however God did promise that He would raise up a king from this line. God says in this verse that this king will execute judgment and righteousness on the earth. There is only one man that lived that can accomplish this great feat. That is the Son of Man, Jesus Christ.

His name: ‘THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS’, stands on the fact that we are in-capable of establishing righteousness on our own will, merit and behavior. But we shall receive righteousness that only comes from God, which comes through faith in Jesus Christ.

This prophecy will not be made complete until Jesus Christ returns again, to fully accomplish His righteousness here on earth, by executing His judgment, and preparing the way for His millennial reign. (Revelation 20).
