Role of Christ
Christ is shown as One that must suffer yet One Who has a glorious future. Christ the suffering servant is destined to become the God’s great king. Christ the appointed heir has been promised the greatest inheritance. Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession Psalm 2:8 (and we have been chosen in Him – to be joint-heirs with Christ….) Though angels currently rule this dying world, Christ will one day take the helm and He will rule with a rod of iron, Psalm 2:9 and His kingdom shall have no end, Luke 1:33 and 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..
