The Root And Offspring
"I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."
Jesus is not just the way that we are forgiven of sin. Jesus is also the way we are made righteous for all of eternity! Jesus’ work has a lasting effect, so that the perfection and completion He causes, remains pure forever. Jesus is not just the Root of righteousness, as the cause of all good things. He is also the Root of David, meaning that, though He was born in the flesh as the “offspring” of David, He also existed before David! This speaks to Jesus’ eternal nature, as the Branch of Righteousness, that was prophesied to come as the Offspring of David – providing pure goodness forever, through the manifestation of His own bright, and perfect glory.
