By Bible Names of God
"Behold, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah,...hath prevailed to open the book and to loose the seals thereof." Revelation 5:5
The dying prophecy of Jacob was fulfilled in Jesus: "The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a law-giver from between His feet until Shiloh come." (Genesis 49:10.) Judah had no conception that nearly three thousand years would pass before his prophecy would or could be fulfilled, or that its fulfillment would involve the glorified Son of God. The characteristics of a lion are manifest in the life and work of the Messiah. He will arrest every opposing force of Satan and establish His universal kingdom. Glory be to God, we will be with Him and like Him in the final overthrow of Satan's kingdom.
Lord, help us to be like Thee now. Help us to wear the armor of warriors and carry the Sword of the Spirit. Amen.
