Scripture: Isaiah 9:6-7
Verse 7 of Isaiah 9 states, “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” The government of Jesus is increasing. It never decreases. It does not have an end. The resurrected Christ sits on the Throne of David and over His Kingdom. Meaning, He guarantees us the Key of David. The Key of David rests on the Covenant of Sure Mercy that was made with David. That Key included the ability to both open and close the door of judgment. We are told that from the time of Christ, forward, the zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this. How much more can we expect that zeal to perform justice in the last days? The generation that welcomes the return of the Christ will see a baptism of early church zeal! That generation very likely will see a double portion of that anointing to bring justice in the earth. Are we preparing for the double?
