Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
in verse 6 of the same Isaiah 9 God promised that a son will be given whom the government be on His shoulders. More prophesies about this son is that he will take away the sins of the world, he will set the captives free, he will heal the sick, he will deliver the oppressed and translate all man kind to glory
then in this verse 7 God realizes that it will cost him a lot of effort to sacrifice his only son. God discovered that it wont be so easy to sacrifice his own beloved. so he promised that with all his Zeal and effort, that He will see to it that the prophecy is upheld.
there are simple things God can do without much effort
God can bless us, it doesnt cost him anything, it requires no effort.
he can promote us, without putting any effort into getting that done.
but when He tries to save us, when it comes to letting his son out of his sight in the heavenlies, watching him bleed, fall, cry, and die, that event cost God everything.
he put in all of His effort and Zeal to see it through. It is a waste of your life, and a molestation of the Grace of God if you choose to live and die in sin coz it means to you, Jesus died in vain….
still on the same scripture, let us check our lives for regular sins and cry for grace to part with them.
