INTRODUCTION: “What's in a name? that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Shakespeare not withstanding, names and titles carry great power. Some names, nicknames or title become clearly associated with individual people. For example, see if you think of a specific person when I say the following nicknames or titles: Sultan of Swat (Babel Ruth, George Herman Ruth), The King (Elvis Presley), Der Fuhrer (Hitler), the Golden Bear (Jack Nicholson), the Boss (Bruce Springsteen). You may or may not recognize some of these name but how about when I say, “Christ.” Who comes to mind? Jesus, of course. But do we understand who what the Christ is? The angels told the shepherds the night of Jesus’ birth, “for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” What does the Bible tell us of Him? Did Jesus claim to be the Christ?

Isaiah 9:6–7 NASB
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.
I. God promised a Savior to the human race.
Genesis 3:15–16 NASB
And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you shall bring forth children; Yet your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”
II. God fulfilled His promise through His Chosen race.
A. God chose Abraham and promised that through him all the families of the earth would be blessed because through him the promised Savior would come.
Genesis 12:1–3 NASB
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
B. The promises to Abraham was passed on to Isaac whom God chose over Ishmael.
Genesis 21:9–13 NASB
Now Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking. Therefore she said to Abraham, “Drive out this maid and her son, for the son of this maid shall not be an heir with my son Isaac.” And the matter distressed Abraham greatly because of his son. But God said to Abraham, “Do not be distressed because of the lad and your maid; whatever Sarah tells you, listen to her, for through Isaac your descendants shall be named. “And of the son of the maid I will make a nation also, because he is your descendant.”
John 8:56 NASB
“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”

He couches, he lies down as a lion, And as a lion, who dares rouse him up? “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.
E. Messiah would be a Davidic King who would rule over Israel. Messiah/Christ was to be a Davidic King who would rule Israel, the Nation, be a blessing to the world, and destroy the Serpent of Old, Satan.
2 Samuel 7:8–16 NASB
“Now therefore, thus you shall say to My servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, that you should be ruler over My people Israel. “And I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the names of the great men who are on the earth. “I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them, that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again, nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly, even from the day that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies. The Lord also declares to you that the Lord will make a house for you. “When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. “He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. “I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men, but My lovingkindness shall not depart from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. “And your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever.”’”
Psalm 2:1–3 NASB
Why are the nations in an uproar, And the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand, And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed: “Let us tear their fetters apart, And cast away their cords from us!”
Matthew 22:41–45 NASB
Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, saying, “What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?” They *said to Him, “The son of David.” He *said to them, “Then how does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand, Until I put Thine enemies beneath Thy feet” ‘? “If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his son?”

CONCLUSION: God made a promise to the whole human race but He fulfilled it through a specific race, a specific nation, a specific tribe, a specific family and a specific person, Jesus Christ, Yeshua ben David, ben Judah, ben Jacob, ben Isaac, ben Abraham, ben Adam, ben Elohim. Race, nation, tribe, family do not save us. Salvation does not come by being part of a certain race, nation, tribe, or family. Just as God brings salvation to us in the form of a specific person, Jesus, so we have salvation only if we individually, specifically, personally receive Him as our Savior.
John 1:12 NASB
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”16 To the woman He said,
“I will greatly multiply
Your pain in childbirth,
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Yet your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”
1 Now the Lord said to Abram,
“Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father’s house,
To the land which I will show you;
2 And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
3 And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question,42 saying, “What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?” They *said to Him, “The son of David.”43 He *said to them, “Then how does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying,

”Sit at My right hand,
Until I put Thine enemies beneath Thy feet” ‘?
