And it is paving the road for the time when God puts an end to Israel’s enemies (Obadiah 1:18) and the remnant who survive the tribulation take up their rightful position as highly esteemed, fulfilling Jacob’s blessing:
May God give you heaven’s dew
and earth’s richness—
an abundance of grain and new wine.
29 May nations serve you
and peoples bow down to you.
Be lord over your brothers,
and may the sons of your mother bow down to you.
May those who curse you be cursed
and those who bless you be blessed.” Genesis 27:28-29
Zechariah 8:23 prophesies the fulfillment in the Kingdom Age:
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
