you are not the least of the princes of Judah, out of you came Jesus Christ, the Governor, ruler of the people of Israel.
of whom it was asked “can anything good come out of her?” your elevation came as a city of refuge and upbringing of the Messiah, called a Nazarene.
Oh! lands of Zebulun & Naphtali “by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations”,
in the former times contempt was upon you, but your day of glorious visitation came in the latter time.
For your “people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Those who lived in the land of the shadow of death, on them the light has shined.”
The Light of the World has “broken the rod of the oppressor, the yoke of their burden.” They did not fear for his Rod and Staff comforted them.
“For the armor of the armed man in the noisy battle, and the garments rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.
For unto us a child is born. To us a son is given; and the government will be on his shoulders. His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting, Father, Prince of peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, on the throne of David, and on his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from that time on, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of armies has performed it”
Bozrah of Edom,
from you the LORD’s enemies were judged by him clothed in red “marching in his great strength”.
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying],
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.”
Who are you King of Zion and one robed in red of Bozrah ?
“It is I, the Lord, announcing your salvation! It is I, the Lord, who had the power to save”
I am the LORD of the Heavenly Armies”…In my anger I have trampled my enemies as if they were grapes… their blood has stained my clothes.
For the time has come for me to avenge my people to ransom them from their oppressors…I myself stepped in by my strong arm and my wrath sustained me.
I crushed the nations in my anger and made them stagger and fall to the ground and spilling their blood upon the earth”.
“The earth is the LORD and everything in it.The world and all it’s people belong to Him”
The LORD has sent forth His Counsel in all the territories of the earth:
“Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed [are] all they that put their trust in him.”
(Is 9:1-7, Is 63:1-6, Matt. 2:4-6,Ps. 2, Ps.24:1)
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!
