"There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. 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." - Isaiah 11 V 1, 2
"...Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, and whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame." - Romans 9 V33
Jesus Christ came down from heaven to preach the kingdom of God and He laid down His life for the remission of sins of mankind. He is from the stem of Jesse and His birth and death was foretold by the prophets. He is coming again to receive unto Himself those who are His own and He will judge the wicked. He is the Saviour to those who believe in Him and a stumbling stone to those who reject Him. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
