An Energizing Purpose

“Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:7).

The Hebrew for order is kun which means to stand upright firmly established. This reminds me of one of my favorite verses in Romans: “Who are you to judge another's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand” (14:4).

The Hebrew for establish is saad which means to support, uphold, sustain, refresh, energize, nourish.

Jesus is going to set us up for a specific thrilling purpose, and then energize and motivate us to fulfill it. Relative to eternity, we still sit on the eve of these great and exciting things to come.
