“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The Lord is our righteousness.’
A few decades after Isaiah declares a virgin will give birth, through Jeremiah the Lord declares again he is going to fulfill his promise to raise up a Messiah from the House of David who will execute justice and righteousness in the land.
God is not sending a redeemer to sort through our own self-righteousness, but to be righteousness itself. Jeremiah also declared that we would all know the law for it would be written on our hearts. At Jeremiah 31:33, God again declares the Immanuel principle, “I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
This coming Messiah would be God among us, personal to us, and righteousness for us. A new day is coming where we need not and cannot rely on ourselves, but will rely on God himself as provider of our blessings.
He is calling to us. He is coming soon.
