Luke 1:32-33 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and Yah Elohim shall give unto him the throne of his father Dawid. David was not called his father. David was his father, genetically and genealogically speaking. Joesph was a direct descendant of King Dawid. The seed came directly down. And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. What was Jacob's name changed to ? Israel. The house of Jacob is the house of Israel. This is what Yahshua was born to do. Rule. Technically speaking the Angel Gabriel did not tell Mary what he would do while he was alive, but after his 2nd return. When Yahshua was here the first time he did not do these things, he came in the flesh to die. Which we can read in the old testament and see that was what he was going to do. The people of the time knew from the scriptures that the Messiah was to come at that time through the prophecy of Daniel. Daniel understood the prophecy of Jemimah. All the scriptures work hand and hand, that is how they and us today gain understanding. By reading them. Everyone was looking for the Messiah and here comes the angel telling Mary the good news. At this point the whole house of Israel was under the rule of the Roman Empire. They were not as a Kingdom like unto times of King Dawid and all the other kings of Israel. They had been under Babylon captivity, the Medo Persian captivity and Greek captivity. Under the then current captivity many knew what the scriptures had promised concerning Messiah. going deeper... Isaiah 11th Chapter v1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots Who was Jesse ? King David's father. Both are dead, and have already came and went during Isaiah. It's important to know the historic factor. v2 And the spirit of Yahuwah shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of fear of YAH. Wow the spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge and the spirit of fear of the Father. jump to Psalm 111 before we come back: v10 The fear of Yahuwah is the beginning of wisdom. a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever. The fear of YAH is the beginning. To have wisdom of what the Most High desires in us, the wisdom of truth, you have to have fear. Fear is apart of our walk. A good understanding to do his commandments. To know it and do it. We know the traditions of men, of Christmas etc..but do we know according to scriptures? Do we know the Holy days in scriptures ? The sabbath ? Back to Isaiah 11 We are talking the Messiah. Remember in Luke the 1st chapter we learn Messiah will get the throne of his father Dawid. The is called a branch that comes out of the stem of Jessie and the spirit of fear, knowledge, council and wisdom will be in him. He fears, and does the commandments. v3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of Yahuwah: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears. How many of us judge after the sight of our eyes or our ears ? This is what we should strive to attain to in the same righteous spirit he has. v4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breadth of his lips shall he slay the wicked. This Messiah who is going to do these things, has not yet done these things. When it says in Luke chapter 1 that he will rule over the house of Jacob and to his Kingdom there will be no end this verse above is when he will do all this. Upon his second return. This is what we are looking to today. In the christianity they talk about a rapture and we are going to heaven and be raised in the clouds. None of that is in the scriptures. Even in the Lord's prayer.."Thy Kingdom come thy will be done" says it all. Not "I'm going to christian heaven". "In earth as it is in heaven". The heaven was not created for us to go up there. That is where our salvation is looking to, not in that paganism that they teach on sunday. He is going to reign in righteousness. Judging with equity the poor and meek is going to be a priority. v5-6 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. Today the only way the lamb lie with the wolf is in his stomach. The only way they can dwell together. In Yahshua's Kingdom they will not dwell as we see today do. v7-9 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice den (snakes) They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yahuwah, as the waters cover the sea. He did not say the heavens will be full of knowledge. The earth shall be. Because Yahshua's kingdom and reign will be established on it for ever upon his second return. The word shall is future tense. The world by and large lacks knowledge and understanding of Yah. We are still subjected to pagan religions, man made traditions while everybody has the scriptures! The best selling book on the face of the earth. Are we really following it with knowledge and understanding ? v10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people: to it shall the Gentiles seek (white nations or sons of Japhet): and his rest shall be glorious. The Gentiles are still serving the same gods they have always served. How do we know ? They still are celebrating Christmas and all the pagan high days. We are in the time of the Gentiles. After their time, Yahshua got's next. v11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that YAHUWAH shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. Yah recovered his children Israel out of Egypt the first time during the exodus, remembering his covenant made and to establish Israel as a priest nation. He is coming a second time to recover a remnant of his people. All these lands above are all "black" African biased lands. v12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Israel was dispersed and sold into captivity into every nation on the earth. Yahshua even says so. Luke 21:24 Yahshua speaking to Israel just before they were finally led captive by the Romans complete by 70 AD And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive in to all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Brothers and sisters I pray you have been edified.
