Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. -Isaiah 11:1-2
The promised Deliverer will be the One on whom the Spirit of God rests. “Anointing” is the term used to describe the Holy Spirit’s “coming upon” a person. Thus, the Deliverer will be The Anointed One—Messiah from the Hebrew language and Christos from the Greek. The completeness of the Holy Spirit will be upon the Promised One. He will be the appearing in the created world of all God is, and will have all God’s authority and resting on and operating within Himself.
