Jeremiah 23:5 – ‘a King shall reign and prosper’



Jeremiah 23:5 a King shall reign and prosper

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. – Jeremiah 23:5 (KJV)

A good chunk of the prophecy we find in the Old Testament points to the first and second coming of Yeshua. Jeremiah is one of the most important of the Prophets in that he declared God’s message for every generation. Some of what he discussed was for his age. Others, including this very clear reference to Yeshua, was designed to speak to Jews and the world as verification of our Lord, Savior, and Messiah.

Jews still see it as the first coming. Christians know it pertains to His second coming.
