An angel from the Lord instructed Joseph and Mary to name their son “JESUS” (which means “Jehovah Saves”), saying, “For he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)
At His birth, the angels declared Jesus to be the Saviour. “For unto you is born this day in the City of David a SAVIOUR, who is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11)
My friend, let me assure you that Jesus, the Great Shiloh, can save YOU! He will deliver you from your sins! This is why today’s verse is so amazing. When we look at the life of Christ, we notice that He was a gatherer of people.
He gathered His disciples together and formed a church. He gathered together many crowds during His preaching ministry. He gathered many people into His Kingdom. Through His death, this gathering continued. Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me.” John 12:32
Through the ages, MILLIONS of souls have been gathered by Him. The task, the work of Jesus today is still A GATHERING. We are to “gather” in His name. “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there will I be in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
And we are to gather souls together for His Kingdom! “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 Our task is to gather people together in the name of Shiloh or Jesus Christ.
