Greg Laurie: Christmas Is Reminder Christ Will Return to Fulfill Promise in Isaiah
Laurie quoted from Isaiah 9:7 in a Facebook message on Thursday, which reads: "Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
Laurie commented that part of that promise has not yet been fulfilled, however.
"The Son has been given. The Child has been born. But He has not yet taken the government upon His shoulders. We do not yet have peace with judgment and justice," the megachurch pastor wrote.
"But the good news is that there will come a day when Christ will return. He will establish His Kingdom on this Earth. And it will be the righteous rule of God Himself."
