Isaiah - The Branch of Jesse

The Branch of Jesse

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

Out of Jesse, the father of king David a branch shall grow out of his roots. The tree that has been a dormant stump for 600 years, shall bring forth a new living branch, the Lord Jesus Christ. God keeps His promises, in His time.

Jer 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.
Jer 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.

Zec 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.

Zec 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
Zec 6:13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

Isa 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;

The Spirit of God shall rest on him; their are seven qualities of this one Spirit:
the Spirit of the Lord,
the spirit of wisdom
and understanding,
the spirit of counsel,
and might,
the spirit of knowledge
and the fear of the LORD.

This passage is behind the term the sevenfold Spirit of God used in Revelation 1:4, 3:1, 4:5 and 5:6. It isn't that there are seven different spirits of God, rather the Spirit of the LORD has these characteristics, and He has them all in fullness and perfection.(Guzik)

Jesus put aside his Godhead, which had all of these qualities.

Phil 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Phil 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Phil 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

He put on the Spirit of God, that has the qualities of God, the same Spirit that is available to us. The Spirit of God is also the Spirit of Jesus. If we are Spirit filled, we are filled with the presence of Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit of God, connects us to the Father and the Son, we are spiritual adopted sons of God. We may ask and receive wisdom, understanding, good advice, power to do his will, knowledge and the fear of the LORD. The world does not honor and fear the LORD, because they have not His Spirit.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
