+ STUDY. Prophetic Text. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.



The Bible basically tells stories and genealogies. But locked in the texts, hidden how is the prophetic message, a text that transcends its own time and through the ages as an arrow out of the bow of God.

In Genesis 49, the Patriarch Jacob, aware that his days were about to end, she gathers her children to tell them what was to happen in the future. That is, he would prophesy about them. When it is his turn to Judah, he says:

"Judah, you will be praised by your brothers;
    you will master your enemies,
    and your own brothers will bow down to you.
9 My son Judah is like a lion cub
    which it has been nurtured by the dam.
It tends lurking like a lion,
    like a lioness that nobody dares to bother.
10 scepter shall not depart from Judah,
    or between his feet baton,
until the true king,
    who deserves the obedience of the peoples.
11 Judah tied his donkey to the vine,
    and raising his donkey to the choice vine;
washes his clothes in wine;
his mantle in the blood of grapes. GEN. 49.8-11 NIV.

See paragraph by paragraph:

"Judah, you will be praised by your brothers;
    you will master your enemies,
    and your own brothers will bow down to you.


Judah was had by Moses as head of the People in the Desert cf. 2.3 and 10.14. After the partition of the Kingdom at the beginning of the reign of Rehoboam, son of Solomon, the tribe of Judah stayed with the Southern Kingdom with its capital in Jerusalem. From there you'll take them the name of Jews.


10 scepter shall not depart from Judah,
    or between his feet baton,
until the true king,
    who deserves the obedience of the peoples.


It is a prophecy of the geopolitical reality of the Kingdom of Judah in Jesus' time: When the True King (Jesus) came, they no longer have the sovereign power represented by the Scepter.


11 Judah tied his donkey to the vine,
    and raising his donkey to the choice vine;

So Jesus entered Jerusalem, riding on a donkey, as was the tradition of them Kings of Israel. Cf. Matthew 21.1-5:

1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 custom "Go to the village ahead, and that it will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything, tell him that the Lord needs, but will send them. "
4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet (cf. Zechariah 9.9)
5 "Tell the daughter of Zion:
    "Look, your king comes to you,
humble and riding on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden. ' "NIV.


Washes his clothes in wine;
 his mantle in the blood of grapes.

These last two verses refer to the Day of the Wrath of God:

18 the altar came another angel, who had authority over the fire, and shouted that had the sharp sickle, "Put in your sickle and gather the clusters of the vineyard of the earth, because its grapes are ripe." 19 The angel passed sickle on the earth, he gathered the grapes and threw them into the great winepress of the wrath of God. 20 The grapes were trodden outside the city, and blood came winery, which reached the bridles of the horses in an area of ​​three hundred kilometers. NIV Revelation 14.18-20.

This also speaks Isaiah 63:

Who is this that comes from Edom,
    from Bozrah, dressed in purple?
Who is this, robed in splendor,
    advancing with overwhelming force?

"It is I who speak in righteousness,
    which has the power to save. "

2 Why are your garments red,
    like those of one treading the winepress?

3 "I have trodden the winepress alone;
    none of the peoples was with me.
I have trodden in my anger;
    I've crushed my anger.
His blood spattered my garments,
    and I stained all my clothes.
4 You already have planned the day I revenge!
    The year of my redemption has arrived!
5 I looked, but there was no one to help me,
    I was amazed that nobody gave me support.
My own arm brought me victory;
    My own wrath sustained me!
6 In my anger I trampled peoples,
    and drunk with the cup of my wrath;
    I made run their blood on the earth! "


God speaks through Jacob in 1830 B.C., Zacharias remembers the 1st part of the prophecy in 500 B.C., which is fulfilled in 33 A.D.

The second part of the prophecy of John Jacob refreshes in 98 A.D. and Isaiah confirms in 750 B.C. For everyone knows that God is one, sovereign God who knows everything from beginning to end, because He is, was and will be. He is the Eternal and all-powerful, mighty to save and to announce what will happen.


Week 70 is at the door, it is time to understand the prophetic message in the Scriptures.
