Messianic Prophecy : Sceptor of Judah

January 1, 2013

Genesis 49:10

The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from his descendants, until the coming of the one to whom it belongs, the one whom all nations will honor.

Lets make it clear that God’s reasons for doing anything good or bad are always far greater, bigger, deeper, and have a greater impact than we could ever imagine. With that being said, could we look at this verse as a window of truth, power, love and faithfulness of God’s Word? I don’t see why not.

The book of Genesis was written around 1400 B.C. In this chapter, Jacob, the grandson of Abraham was blessing his 12 children before his death. His twelve sons became the founding fathers of the 12 tribes of Israel. From these 12 tribes God chose the tribe of Judah to be the line that Jesus would be born into. Did Jacob and Judah realize what these words meant at the time it was said? Who knows.

What we do know is that we need to look at this verse in two folds. Reading the entire verse above, God, through Jacob; informs us that through the tribe of Judah, the ruler of all nations will come and be honored. This is Jesus. The first part has already happened. But…Jesus has not been honored by all nations, yet.

So if we believe in the Word of God, and the power and truth that God’s Word has what does this verse say? It tells me that this prophecy is only half fulfilled, and if God can hold true on a nearly 4,000 year old promise, why would the second part not become a reality either?

My friends, do you believe Jesus will be honored by all nations some day? I do, God’s Word never fails, and even when all heaven and earth pass away God’s Word will remain (Mark 13:31)!
