“Kings and Rulers”

December 17, 2018


Isaiah 9: 6, 7: “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders … There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness.”  A proper celebration of Christmas should always include the issue of government – but without any mention of red or blue states, nationalism, or that new brand of colonialism we call globalization.  So many of the prophecies of Christmas, including Psalm 2, Psalm 110, and others, echo Isaiah’s cry that Christmas isn’t only about redemption, but about who’s on the throne, as well.  When’s the last time you got a Christmas card with that on it?
