"Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.  And coming in, he said to her, "Hail, favored one!  The Lord is with you."  But she was greatly troubled at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this might be.  And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.  And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  He will be great, and will be called the Son of   the Most High; and He will REIGN over the house of Jacob FOREVER;"  Luke 1:26-32


  :  royal authority :  sovereignty  :  the dominion, sway, or influence of one resembling a monarch :  the time during which one as a sovereign reigns

Jesus, You will REIGN FOREVER!  You are the royal authority who has dominion and influence who will REIGN for a limitless time!  You will REIGN over the house of Jacob (Matthew 1:1-2) FOREVER!  Gabriel made it very clear who You were!  Mary must have had no doubt that Gabriel, the angel, was telling her that she would be the mother of the Messiah!  The One they had all been waiting for!!  Jesus, You are the King who will REIGN for a limitless time, at all times and continually!!!  I bow down before You, King Jesus!!
