For to us a child is born, This is simple. Jesus has been born. He will be the government
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign … over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this (Is 9:6-7).
from that time forward and forever.
So why does Barack Obama think that he should be the government?
or David Cameron, or Vladimir Putin?
Herod understood this prophecy.
He knew that his government was a goner,
so he tried to kill Jesus.
Satan understood the threat.
That is why he came up with clever deception that
This prophecy is not for now,
but for later,
This is why he pretends that his government is for now;
Jesus government comes at the end of the age.
You could trust Satan to thrust his shoulder in.
The government is on Jesus shoulders
He will govern with justice and righteousness.
and his government will never stop increasing.
The Zeal of the Lord will do it.
