Isaiah 4:2 Branch of the LORD

Isaiah 4:2 In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. 

The Branch of the LORD is a name that is given of the Messiah in the Old Testament. In the present day and age, we know him as Jesus. He is the Branch of the LORD. Listed below are examples in the Old Testament of the name of the Branch.

Isaiah 11:1 Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.

Zechariah 3:8 ‘Now listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who are sitting in front of you—indeed they are men who are a symbol, for behold, I am going to bring in My servant the Branch.

Jeremiah 23:5 “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “When I will raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.

Zechariah 6:12 “Then say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts, “Behold, a man whose name is Branch, for He will branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of the LORD.

The word for “branch” in the Hebrew is tsemach. Per Strong’s, it means: a sprout, growth, branch, or shoot. In Isaiah 4:2, the “Branch” is of the LORD or Yahweh. Two members of the Trinity are represented in this verse, the Father and the Son.

The description of the Branch is beautiful, glorious, honorable, abundant with riches, splendorous, and reverent in the Hebrew.

During the reign of the Branch, the vegetation and produce will be prolific. This is confirmed throughout the Old Testament. Three examples include Jeremiah 31:12 “They will come and shout for joy on the height of Zion, And they will be radiant over the bounty of the LORD— Over the grain and the new wine and the oil, and over the young of the flock and the herd; and their life will be like a watered garden, and they will never languish again.

Isaiah 30:23 Then He will give you rain for the seed which you will sow in the ground, and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous; on that day your livestock will graze in a roomy pasture.

Ezekiel 34:27a “Also the tree of the field will yield its fruit and the earth will yield its increase, and they will be secure on their land…”

For the remnant that escapes and is delivered, better days are coming. That is the case with God. Blessing and abundance follows trials and tribulation.
