Scripture: Isaiah 9:6,7, Ezekiel 44:1-4
The interesting part of Ezekiel 44:1-4 is that the Lord brought him in by the northern gate. Every gate was assigned to a specific tribe. The northern gate had three assignments. Reuben, Judah and Levi. Reuben stands for the double anointing. Judah, David’s tribe, is always first and carries the Kingly anointing. And Levi was the Priestly tribe from which came the atonement and Priestly forgiveness. Isaiah 9:6,7 states the importance of this judicial anointing when it says, “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.” We know that in the last days the zeal of the Lord of Hosts is going to bring the judicial Hand of God into action and a double anointing is going to flow. A Priestly stream will flow and a Kingly stream will flow. We do not have to work it out; it is something that God is going to accomplish by His Spirit through pouring out His zeal. It is something we can, however, pray for and expect!
