‘Behold, the days are coming,’ says the LORD, ‘that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah:
‘In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David a Branch of righteousness; He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely. And this is the name by which she will be called:
THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.’
“For thus says the LORD: ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel; nor shall the priests, the Levites, lack a man to offer burnt offerings before Me, to kindle grain offerings, and to sacrifice continually.’ ” Jeremiah 33:14-18 (NKJV)
Right smack dab in the middle of judgment God assures the people of His promises of their coming King, and their places of blessing. Israel and Judah would be returning to their land, even after several times of being carried away, and times of great trial. Israel still has no king who is reigning over them, neither do they have the priesthood gathered; but I can tell you with assurance of the word of God. One day, and maybe in the not too distant future; they will.
How can I be so sure? Because every word God has spoken comes to pass just as He has said. Not one word will fail. If one word of God ever fails He cannot be THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
When He says, “Behold the days are coming…” the we can count on it happening. We can depend on that day coming. Open your eyes to GOD His word, His Son Jesus, and His way of salvation. Look unto Him and live.
