Advent Thought – The Promise of the Coming Witness
“Behold, I have appointed him (Him) [David, as a representative of the Messiah, or the Messiah Himself] to be a witness [one (One) who shall testify of salvation] to the nations, a prince (Prince) and commander (Commander) to the peoples.” – Isaiah 55:4
The promise of God declared by the prophet Isaiah is the assurance that God will visit his people with a witness to declare to all the heart of God. Therefore, if you wanted to know what God is like all you need to do is look at Jesus Christ.
Jesus’ life was a living testament to the glory of God.
The intention and commitment of God to his children was the coming of a saviour, a prince and commander who would guide, care and with kindness and love restore his children back into their father’s arms.
His children were always the desire of His heart, and Jesus Christ was the God’s witness to the plans and purposes of God. In all Jesus did he did with the power and commitment of His Father.
The fulfillment of God’s intention took place at the cross, it was at Calvary where mankind was reconciled back to God, the Cross was the starting point of history and the centre point of all God’s plans.
The promise of the coming witness is the eternal oath to reconcile man back to God, to make a way in the wilderness and to path a way into the Promised Land.
