The King and His Kingdom (Isaiah 11)

Isaiah - sermon series at Elmira Christian Center

The first twelve chapters of Isaiah—with its message of righteous judgment and gracious salvation—are bound together by a common theme: the King and his kingdom. In chapter 11, we see a further vision of the Messiah, Immanuel, ruling in righteousness over the restored creation. This passage aims to lift our eyes to the day that all of history is moving towards, the day when “the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:9), when King Jesus returns in glory to consummate the kingdom he inaugurated by his death, resurrection, and ascension. In this sermon, Mitch Bedzyk reveals that the Christian’s glorious hope is a renewed world and a redeemed people under a righteous King.
