TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I placed the beacon of eternity in your heart. Because you were seeking Me, you found Me and your way home. You are made in My image to be eternal. I will be with you from everlasting to everlasting.
I love thinking of Jesus as a warrior king – the Lion of the Tribe of Judah jumping onto the battlefield to slay the enemy on my behalf.
Isaiah loved that picture of Jesus too, despite living in a generation before the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. I believe Isaiah got a good look at Jesus in heaven’s throne room and his prophesies prove that.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be upon his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6
This is all about majesty and kingship. In fact, in Isaiah 32:1, he calls Jesus a righteous King. Just to make sure we understand how strong and courageous the Lion of the tribe of Judah is, Isaiah gives us seven “everlastings” that come with the King and His amazing kingdom.
Everlasting strength (26:4)
Everlasting judgments (33:14)
Everlasting Joy (35:10)
Everlasting Salvation (45:17)
Everlasting Kindness (54:8)
Everlasting Covenant (55:3)
Everlasting Light (60:19)
When you let Jesus rule your life as King, this everlasting, never fading, never stopping, never diminishing love and power is yours, because you’re His. Come quickly Lord Jesus!
