Ezekiel 20:45-49; 1 John 5

Thought from Today's Old Testament Passage:

I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him [Ezek. 21:27].

This is a remarkable prophecy. "Until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him," that is, the Lord Jesus. From Zedekiah down to the Lord Jesus there has been no one in the line of David who ever sat on that throne. Ezekiel is saying that no one would ever be able to do so. The Lord Jesus is the only One who will. Right now He is sitting at God's right hand, waiting until His enemies are made His footstool when He comes to this earth to rule.

This remarkable prophecy began back in Genesis 49:10, when Jacob was giving the prophecies concerning his twelve sons who became the twelve tribes of Israel. He said there: "The 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." "The sceptre" means the king. The Hebrew word for "until He come" is very similar to the word, Shiloh. It speaks of the Lord Jesus—this is the way He was introduced in Scripture. This is the reason that John the Baptist said, "… Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matt. 3:2). Why? Because it was "at hand" in the Person of the One who had come, the One of whom all the prophets had spoken.
