The Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Genesis 49:8-12)Gary Kirst, October 4, 2009
Part of the Genesis series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
One of the amazing qualities of God’s Book is that it tells the future. In his final blessing for his sons, Jacob reveals their future. His words to his son Judah are monumental. They reveal a great coming Ruler - Jesus Christ.

8Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee. 9Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? 10The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 11Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes: 12His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk. (KJV)
