Isaiah 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
NOW, LOOK AT THE LAST STANZA:
Come Desire of Nations, come! Fix in us Thy humble home:
Rise, the woman’s conquering Seed, Bruise in us the serpent’s head.
Adam’s likeness now efface, Stamp Thine image in its place:
Second Adam from above, reinstate us in Thy love. HARK…
Haggai 2:7, “And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.”
To think that the AlMIGHTY CREATOR, THE JUDGE OF ALL THE EARTH, THE RIGHTEOUS SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS, THE CONQUEROR OF DEATH WOULD TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN OUR OWN HEARTS!
Adam’s sin nature was passed on to all his descendants, and likewise the unacceptability of sinful mankind to stand in the presence of a Holy God. But his work in fulfillment of the prophecy, crushed Satan’s hold on the claim over us.
1 Corinthians 15:22, “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”
GLORY TO THE NEWBORN KING!
