The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until tribute comes to him; and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.

Genesis 49:10

Here in Genesis 49, Jacob blesses his sons. About Judah, he says, “the scepter shall not depart.” Now three times in Genesis I have shown you the image of the redeemer that is developing.

He shall crush the head of the serpent. He shall be a descendant of Abraham. Now we see that his kingdom will be under the House of Judah. He will be a king. He shall have the obedience of the people.

We have a redeemer who will not depart from us, but will reign and rule forever. He is both Lord and Savior. Jacob said he would have the obedience of the people. Does he have yours? He is coming soon.
