Jeremiah 33: The King's Branch Prophecy

"In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness"

If the Messiah's genealogy was an actual tree, the primary root would be Abraham (see The LORD's Seed Covenants With The Two Men Of Iraq and A Biography Of Abraham: The Genealogy Of Abram), along with the roots from the other nations that contributed to the emergence of the trunk of the tree, "Israel" (see The Origin Of Israelites And Jews and Israel In History and Prophecy: Roots and Branches). From the trunk of Israel came the branch of the tribe of Judah. From Judah came many branches, one of which bore the fruit of the Messiah.

While the tree that sustained the branch of Judah seemed to be cut down in the time of Jeremiah, its roots remained strong and alive - awaiting the season of new growth. Isaiah saw it, as recorded in his famous "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb" prophecy.

Olive Branch

"11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious." (Isaiah 11:1-10 KJV)

Jeremiah lived in the time when the throne of David was visibly ended. No human reigned again as a king over Judah. They were instead ruled by the kings of other nations, including, ironically, kings of Babylon - where Abraham originated. But the Messianic line was never stopped or impeded.

"1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations." (Matthew 1:17 KJV)

Jeremiah saw the fall of Judah, but he knew that he was not witnessing the cutting off of the King's Branch: "In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness."

"33:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying, 33:2 Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name; 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. 33:4 For thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword; 33:5 They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city.

33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth. 33:7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. 33:8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me. 33:9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.

33:10 Thus saith the LORD; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast, 33:11 The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.

33:12 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shepherds causing their flocks to lie down. 33:13 In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that telleth them, saith the LORD.

33:14 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.

33:15 In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. 33:16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

33:17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; 33:18 Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.

33:19 And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying, 33:20 Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; 33:21 Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. 33:22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.

33:23 Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 33:24 Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them. 33:25 Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; 33:26 Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them." (Jeremiah 33:1-26 KJV)

Fact Finder: Why is the coming Kingdom of God called the Kingdom of God? How and why is it that everyone there will have the same spiritual "roots"?

This Day In History, September 27

1066: William I (known as William the Conqueror) and his marine army sailed from the mouth of the Somme River across the English Channel to begin the Norman Conquest of England. A descendant of Viking raiders, William had been Duke of Normandy since 1035 under the name William II. By 1060 his control of Normandy was secure; he then launched the Norman conquest of England in 1066, whereby he became the first Norman King of England, reigning from 1066 until his death in 1087.

William the Conqueror 1290: An earthquake in China killed 100,000 people.

1331: The Battle of Plowce between the forces of the Kingdom of Poland and the Teutonic Order.

1396: Thousands of Church of Rome "Crusaders" (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy) who had been taken prisoner by Ottoman (i.e. Turkish; listen to our Sermon The Ottoman Empire) forces under Sultan Bayazid at the Battle of Nicopolis the day before were beheaded. Among those executed were members of the royal families of France, Germany and Burgundy.
The Ottoman Empire was one of the longest in human history. It occupied a vast area of Europe and the Middle East, including the land of Israel, for centuries. It was the fall of the Ottoman Empire to the British Empire that permitted the present-day state of "Israel" (which is actually Judah; see Israel In History and Prophecy: Israel Of Judah) to come into existence (see A History Of Jerusalem: The British Mandate).

1529: The Siege of Vienna began when Suleiman I attacked the city (see also A History Of Jerusalem: Constantine and Muhammad).

1540: The Church of Rome's Pope Paul III gave approval to Ignatius Loyola for the founding of the Society of Jesus, known as the Jesuits (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).

1590: Pope Urban VII died 13 days after becoming Pope, making his reign the shortest papacy in history (see also The Struggle For The Papacy).

1605: The armies of Sweden were defeated by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the Battle of Kircholm.

1669: The island of Crete in The Mediterranean Sea fell to the Ottomans after a 21-year siege.

1785: The "Episcopal Church" in the U.S. was founded when Anglicans met in Philadelphia to create a denomination independent of the Church of England. The Episcopalians left (but continued the erroneous doctrines of) the Church of England, that left (but continued the erroneous doctrines of) the Church of Rome. All 3 were and are "state religions" (i.e. the Church of Rome, the Church of England, the Episcopal Church" of the United States) that deny the Biblical Truth of the Church of God - which knows and recognizes no man-made political boundaries (see also What Is The Church? and What And Where Is Babylon Today?; also A Biography Of Abraham: Abrahamic Religions).

1791: Jews in France were granted French citizenship.

1821: Mexico declared independence from Spain (Texas succeeded from Mexico 15 years later, in 1836).

1822: Jean-François Champollion announced that he had deciphered the Rosetta stone.

1825: In England, the first locomotive to haul a passenger train was operated by George Stephenson.

1854: The first great disaster involving an Atlantic Ocean liner occurred when the steamship Arctic sank with 300 people aboard.

1905: The physics journal Annalen der Physik received Albert Einstein's paper "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?." The paper introduced Einstein's famous E=mc2 equation (see Einstein's Holy Spirit Formula).

1918: During the First World War (listen to our Sermon The European World Wars), Canadian commandos stormed the Canal du Nord, a section of the German Hindenburg Line, capturing over 7,000 prisoners and 205 artillery guns.

1923: Martial law was declared in Germany.

1939: Warsaw, Poland capitulated to the invading German forces (see Presidential Quotes On War, Terrorism, Religion).

1959: A typhoon battered the Japanese island of Honshu, killing almost 5,000 people.

1964: The Warren Commission released the official report of its investigation of the assassination of President John Kennedy with the conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the shooter and that he acted alone. "Conspiracy theorists" continue to disagree with the findings with various counter-claims e.g. Oswald could not have fired shots from 2 different directions at the same time, FBI marksmen found it nearly impossible to repeat the rate of fire and accuracy using Oswald's cheap, bolt-action rifle that, as well, was later found to have a bent sight that would have caused Oswald to fire nearly a foot above, and to the left, of Kennedy's head at that range.

1970: King Hussein of Jordan and Al Fatah guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat met in Cairo with 10 Arab chiefs of state and signed an agreement ending civil war in Jordan.

1996: In Afghanistan, Taliban forces seized control of Kabul and hanged former President Najibullah.

2008: Zhai Zhigang became the first Chinese astronaut to do a "spacewalk," from Shenzhou 7.
