No End Of The Increase
Isaiah 9:6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 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.
Matthew Poole*s comments on the passage:
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end; his peaceable and happy government shall be enlarged without end; either without end of duration, for ever; but that is expressed in a following clause of this verse: or without end of limitation, or without bounds. It shall not be confined to a narrow spot of ground, the land of Canaan, but shall be extended far and wide to all the ends of the earth. The throne of David; which was promised to David, and to his seed for ever. With judgment and with justice; not with oppression and tyranny, by which other kingdoms are commonly managed, but by the administration of justice.
Whether we believe that the Kingdom of Christ will reach a final stage of perfectness and stay there forever or that there shall be no end of an ever increasing knowledge and experience of it for us, we can rejoice that we are and will be a part of His Kingdom forever. I believe that our knowledge and experience will never completely catch up with that of our Infinite and Almighty God but our knowledge and experience of Him and His Kingdom will be increasingly wonderful and glorious for us.
Ephesians 3:20: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Philippians 4:7: And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 13:12: For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Romans 16:27: To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17: Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Jude 1:25: To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
1 Thessalonians 4:17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
We shall ever be with the Lord but we will never be the Lord. Some individuals actually believe that they will become Gods. They believe that as we are, God once was, and as God is they can become. Others simply try to govern their lives as if they are gods here and now. We are not God now and we will never be.
Deuteronomy 29:29: The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
