The Messiah brings Righteous Judgment (Isaiah 11:3-5)
“In David’s line, king after king had failed, whether by character defect or administrative ineptitude. In this King (Messiah) character and rule are in total harmony.” – Alec Motyer
Messiah’s reign is marked by:
I. Delighting in the fear of the Lord
II. Righteous judgment and actions
|« The Messiah brings his Kingdom by the Spirit||None||The Messiah brings Restoration »|
3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.
He shall not judge by what his eyes see,
or decide disputes by what his ears hear,
4 but with righteousness he shall judge the poor,
and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.
5 Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist,
and faithfulness the belt of his loins. (ESV)
