In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel
Today’s Morsel: The book of Matthew begins with the words, “The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matthew 1:1). When we look into scripture, we can see that both Jesus and David were of the tribe of Judah. Isaiah said, “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” (Isaiah 9:6). He also recorded that , “And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:13-14). The sons name would be called Immanuel. Matthew, who opens the lineage line of Judah, said, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS” (Matthew 1:21-25). The Psalmist said that in Judah is God known. Judah means praise. Therefore, in your praise is God known. How you exalt and magnify Him will make Him known unto others and they will be able to see just how great He truly is.
Sing: VERSE 1: The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty, Let all the earth rejoice, all the earth rejoice. He wraps himself in light, and darkness tries to hide, it trembles at his voice, trembles at his voice.
How great is our God, sing with me, How great is our God, and all will see, How great, how great is our God
And age to age He stands, and time is in His Hands, Beginning and the End, Beginning and the End; The Godhead, three in one, Father, Spirit, Son; the Lion and the Lamb, the Lion and the Lamb.
Name above all names, Worthy of all praise, My heart will sing, how great is our God, Name above all names, you are worthy of all praise, and my heart will sing, how great is our God.
