Gabriel Obioma Ejiogu's comment on 2015-04-03 11:23:51:
Moses prayed that God would hear the voice of Judah during his times of distress, because as ' 'a lion, killing his victim and returning to his den... ' ' Judah would stand to defend the Kingdom of God. This was pictured in 2 Chronicles 13, ' 'And when Judah looked back, behold, the battle was before and behind: and they cried unto the LORD, and the priests sounded with the trumpets. Then the men of Judah gave a shout: and as the men of Judah shouted, it came to pass that God smote Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. ' ' vv. 15-16. Moses requested that God would bring unite Judah unto his people. God originally, never planned that there would be any sort of schism among the tribes of Israel. He wanted them to be one strong, united nation not two nations. Moses, through the eyes of the Spirit, saw the separation of Judah from the rest of the tribes of Israel, and Moses prayed that God would unite them. Similarly, Jacob, their father, on his deathbed prophesied that when Shiloh Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Judah comes, there shall be a gathering of His people Genesis 49:10 . This means, that Christ shall unite Israel both the physical and spiritual Israel at His second coming. Another blessing for Judah is that his hands would be sufficient for him and God would be his only aid. Yes, like a lion, Judah kills his victim and returns to his den. God strengthens them enough to defend their cause. They do not seek for an external aid to help them fight their battle. God is their only, and sufficient help.
