Scripture: Luke 1:30-33
Luke 1 is a narrative of those things that were believed among the early church and outlined for us. Verses 30-33 state, “Then the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.’” In the wording here, the parallel passages in Matthew and Mark are combined with these verses in Luke to form a full picture. Jesus is both Savior and Warrior King. He has been given the Throne of His father David, and He reigns with all authority in heaven and earth. If Jesus reigns with all authority in heaven and earth, then it is possible to, by covenant, change judgments that are ordered and/or ordained. We do that by the covenant that Jesus bought and paid for, the same one the Father gave King David. The same covenant David had, we have, through Christ. As a result, we have access to the Christ that sits as King on the Throne of David. His decrees change things. Do we believe that? As the last days mature, we better believe it, otherwise, it is going to be a long season of always enduring what comes along.
