His reign was foretold 700 years before His birth.
â€śBut you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times.â€ť Micah 5:2
And we proclaim Him 2000 years after His death.
But the angel said to her, â€śDo not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.â€ť Luke 1:30-33
His kingdom will never end. Regardless of what’s going on in the Middle East, in America, or right in our own homes, His kingdom will never end.
I pray His richest blessings as we celebrate the Gift and the Giver!
