The Branch and the Fruit

Isaiah 4:2. “In that day shall the Branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the Fruit of the Earth shall be excellent and comely, for them that are escaped of Israel.

Image result for Isaiah 4:2

Jesus is the Branch of the Lord; He is the Fruit of the Earth. These two titles denote His deity (His is God) and His humanity (He was man).  The words beautiful and glorious are the same words that described the priestly clothing in Exodus 28:2, 40.  He will be excellent and comely,   having majesty and splendor. When He comes to receive the dead saints and to change the living, He will be “our Deliverer from the coming wrath”–that is, His destruction of the world at the end of this age. He will come with the angels and the Church. He will be the Deliverer of the godly remnant in Israel who have finally turned to Him as Messiah.
