“I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the people of Sheth. Numbers 24:17
Jesus is the morning star, (Revelation 22:16) and it was the Star of Bethlehem that led the shepherds and wise men to the new born King. Balaam, another prophet, who confirmed the coming of our Messiah, Jesus Christ, is the reason we celebrate the season.
A scepter , meaning royalty or King, will rise out of Israel. That King, Jesus, was born in a manger in Bethlehem, fulfilling many prophecies and saving us from our sins. Jesus is the King of Kings (Revelation 19:16) there is no one greater, come and worship your King.
The Moabites had enticed the Israelites into sinning and therefor losing Gods protection and caused major deaths. Jesus has overcome sin and death, there fulfilling this as Moab is symbolic of sin and death.
The people of Sheth (Seth) or people of Seth who was the third son of Noah representing all of mankind. Means Jesus, the Messiah , has come to save all of man kind, which he fulfilled this prophecy on the cross. So rejoice this season for our Messiah has come in Jesus Name Amen
