|Who is the 'BRANCH' so often talked about in prohetic scriptures ? Are these verses talking about the Lord himself or someone
Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And 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; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD:
and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness
shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of
his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Jesse was King David's father, as David was just one of the seven sons of Jesse. But the Spirit of the Lord did not teach Jesus, as
Jesus was not taught but knew all things from the beginning. So it seems that these verses are talking about a mere human, a
descandant of King David who would learn wisdom and understanding and get a 'Fear of the Lord' all through personal experiences.
And do notice, that this last verse, states that this descandant of David, shall be able to slay the wicked with the breath of his lips.
So who else in prophecy is prophesied to get the ability to burn up the wicked ?
Well in Revelation 11, 3-5 ..... And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two
hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing
before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their
enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. Also SEE Fire breathing Prophets.
And in Zecheriah 4:12 The prophet of the Lord asked the Lord's angel.... And I answered again, and said unto him, What be
these two olive BRANCHES which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he
answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two
anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
All right, so we can pretty well state with certainty, that the Olive Branch, or 'BRANCH' is talking about a mere man, that is one
of Our Two Witnesses or prophets in the Last Days. SEE There will be two Prophets But to be sure, we better have more
evidence that such is so !!!
So let's look at the words of another prophet, Jeremiah 23:3-5 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries
whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will
set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be
lacking, saith the LORD. 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.
'Raise unto David' ..... means that all those promises of the Lord to King David of Old will be fulfilled Not by Jesus who is the
Father and who is God and who is the Creator, but will be fulfilled by a human, a mere man. For again in Jeremiah 33:15 the Lord
stated .... In those days, and at that time, will I cause the BRANCH of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall
execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely:
and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness. For thus saith the LORD; David shall
never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel.
Why because we have to have a leader, a KING to which we will gather around and lead us through the wilderness. And he will be
a descendant of King David of Old. Consider Endtime King David
So all in all, we can be sure that Jesus is not the Branch, for Jesus is the VINE as He distinctly said ... John 15:1,2 I (Jesus) am
the true VINE, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every
branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. For similiarly our End Time King is called the
Lord's servant, but Jesus is never called God's servant. Jesus was God, and it is us and our King that serve the king of Kings. SEE
also Jesus not a servant Ezekiel 34.
Therefore no matter how you look at in scriptures, the Branch is not Jesus, but is a descendant of King David, that becomes our
End Time King and leader and prophet. The BRANCH will come and will GATHER the Lord's fruit as prophesied..
Mathew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that
summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say
unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
And that generation is us !!!!
