A ROD OUT OF THE STEM OF JESSE

By Bible Names of God


      Isai 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

      What a strange prophesy concerning the Messiah! "There is a hope of a tree that is cut down, that it will sprout again", and so it was with the "Stem Of Jesse", which must mean the "House Of David" from which our Lord sprang. What wonders confront us in the Book of books! "The Stem" bore fruit and "in the fulness of time God sent forth His Son, made of a woman," to fulfill the prophesy and "redeem them that were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption of sons".

      Our Loving Lord, Thou knowest our thoughts as we meditate upon Thee at this time. May the Holy Spirit enlighten and strengthen our faith. Amen.
