Christ a Light to the Gentiles and the Glory of Israel

Luke 2:30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation,

31 Which You have prepared before the face of all the peoples,

32 A light for revelation to the Gentiles and the glory of Your people Israel.

 

Acts 13:46 And Paul and Barnabas spoke boldly and said, It was necessary for the word of God to be spoken to you first. Since you thrust it away and do not judge yourselves worthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.

47 For so the Lord has commanded us, “I have set you as a light of the Gentiles, that you would be for salvation unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

48 And the Gentiles, hearing this, rejoiced and glorified the word of the Lord; and as many as were appointed to eternal life believed.

 

 

These are some verses I have been enjoying recently.  The above verses are a quotation from Isaiah 49:6, where Christ is prophesied to be a light for the gentiles and the glory of his people Israel.  Since the jews had rejected Christ as the savior he and the apostles turned to the gentiles that the salvation of God would reach the entire earth!  Awesome!

The Salvation of Israel: At the Lord’s Return

Revelation 1:7  Behold, He comes with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the land will mourn over Him. Yes, amen.

Matthew 24:30 And at that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the land will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

John 19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.

John 19:37 And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him whom they pierced.”

*Additional scriptural references  Psalm 22:16

When the Lord returns to the earth the second time the bible reveals that all the tribes of the land will mourn over him.  And even those who pierced him will see Him.  Those who pierced him and the tribes of the land undoubtedly refer to the Jews.  After the war of Armageddon the Lord Jesus will come back to the earth and at such time all of Israel will mourn over him, repent and believe into Christ.  More to come on this subject.  Stay tuned!
