He is Making All Things New

Continued from yesterday…

This is exactly what took place when the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and said in Luke 1:31-33, “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” This is Him! David’s Son is here! He will reign forever and ever. Paul agrees and states in Romans 1:3 that the Son of David is Jesus. Matthew 22:45 says this Son of David is also the Lord of David, and 1 Corinthians 15:25 says the King ruling and reigning over the true Israel is David’s Son Jesus. So we see the promise made to David in 2 Samuel 7 has eternity shaping realities, when we find out that the son of David who will rule forever is the Son of God Himself. David’s heir who’ll build a house for God is David’s God.

If any of you are familiar with the famous Lord of the Rings novel written by J.R.R. Tolkien, you’ll remember there is a part in the very back that peaks to our topic today. After the quest was over and they were back in the safety of the elven city Rivendell, Gandlaf was sitting by the bed of Sam and Frodo. Sam woke up for the first time since the dark lord had been defeated, and Gandalf asked him, ‘How do you feel?’ Sam’s answer speaks much about the delight and hope of the Christian. Sam said, “Well, I don’t know how to say it. I feel, I feel’ – he waved his arms in the air – ‘I feel like spring after winter, and sun on the leaves; and like trumpets and harps and all the songs I have ever heard! Does this mean the King is now going to make all sad things untrue?” The wait is over, the King has come, and yes, He is making all things new.
