DECEMBER 21 – JESUS

12/21 Isaiah 11:10-16
10 In that day the heir to David’s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world. The nations will rally to him, for the land where he lives will be a glorious place. 11 In that day the Lord will bring back a remnant of his people for the second time, returning them to the land of Israel from Assyria, Lower Egypt, Upper Egypt, Ethiopia, Elam, Babylonia, Hamath, and all the distant coastlands. 12 He will raise a flag among the nations for Israel to rally around. He will gather the scattered people of Judah from the ends of the earth. 13 Then at last the jealousy between Israel and Judah will end. They will not fight against each other anymore. 14 They will join forces to swoop down on Philistia to the west. Together they will attack and plunder the nations to the east. They will occupy all the lands of Edom, Moab, and Ammon. 15 The LORD will make a dry path through the Red Sea. He will wave his hand over the Euphrates River, sending a mighty wind to divide it into seven streams that can easily be crossed. 16 He will make a highway from Assyria for the remnant there, just as he did for Israel long ago when they returned from Egypt.
JESUS
Jesus was predicted, presented, prepared, powerful, and present and He provided exactly what we needed, a Savior. Jesus came and paid the price for our sin so that we could become a part of the family of God. His victory was won, and He lives today seated at the right hand of the Father providing for our best good. Live the life the Lord has given you by the power of the Lord and under His direction and guidance. Victory belongs to Jesus and He has poured His victory out on us.
