Genesis 49:10 ” The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until He comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is His.”

This Messianic prophecy is of Jesus coming to rule and reign over all the people of the world…both Jew and Gentile.  This is also shown in Isaiah 49:6 where it says that Jesus is coming not only to Israel, but to the Gentiles…”that You may bring My salvation to the ends of the earth.”  It’s not that there’d be a continuous reign by the descendants of Judah…only the promise of the permanent right to rule…this being in Jesus Christ, the Messiah.  And at that time He will say, ” Before Me every knee will bow; by Me every tongue will swear.”  (Isaiah 45:23)

Isaiah 11:1 ” A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.”

Researching genealogy and our ancestry has become a popular pastime…and it’s fun to find out where we came from.  Likewise, we can start to trace Jesus Christ’s lineage from this verse.  Here Isaiah spoke of the coming Messiah as the branch or shoot spouting up from the stump or roots of Jesse, King David’s father.  Matthew 1:1-14 then gives us the complete genealogy of Jesus…all 42 generations.  This family tree is spoke about again in Revelation 5:5,  “See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed.”  But Jesus also  transcends all genealogy, all ancestry as we know it…for He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end…all man, but all God.

 

Jeremiah 1:9 ” Then the Lord reached out His hand and touched my mouth and said to me, ‘Now, I have put My words in your mouth.’ “

The Lord releases His voice into the earth through His prophets…His very nature and attributes being made known to all. God’s voice roars like the Lion of the Tribe of Judah over the earth – bringing terror to the enemy camp, and blessings to His children. The lies of the devil are rendered null and void when God’s truth is revealed…and the captives are set free from the deceptions that have held them prisoner for so long.
