LUKE 1:52

 

LUKE 1:52
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.

 

THIS IS FROM THE “SONG OF MARY/MIRIAM.” 

SHE IS REJOICING IN THE NEWS RECEIVED FROM THE ANGEL WHO INFORMED HER THAT SHE WOULD GIVE BIRTH TO THE SON OF GOD.

SHE EXALTS THE LORD, GIVING HIM GLORY FOR WHAT THE BIRTH OF HIS SON WILL BRING. 

ALTHOUGH WE DO NOT KNOW THE EXTENT TO WHICH MARY/MIRIAM (HEBREW) UNDERSTOOD WHAT THIS ALL MEANT AND INVOLVED, SHE WAS OBEDIENT AND QUICK TO GIVE HIM THE GLORY, SOMETHING WHICH WE ALL WOULD DO WELL TO PRACTICE LIKEWISE. 

THERE ARE STILL MANY MIGHTY ONES ON THEIR THRONES; HOWEVER, THEY WILL BE DETHRONED FOREVER UPON MESSIAH’S RETURN. THE LOWLY AND MEEK MAY NOT BE EXALTED IN THIS LIFETIME, BUT THIS WILL BE REALIZED IN THEIR ETERNAL HOME (*BIBLICAL MEANING OF “LOWLY/MEEK” INTENDS SUBMISSION/SURRENDER TO THE LORD). 

MAY WE BE ENCOURAGED BY KNOWING THAT JUSTICE WILL BE DONE AT THE RETURN OF OUR MESSIAH. THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH RETURNS TO BRING JUDGMENT & JUSTICE TO ALL INJUSTICES.
