The Blessing of Judah

Gen 49:8  Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
Gen 49:9  Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
Gen 49:10  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.
Gen 49:11  Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
Gen 49:12  His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
Out of the tribe of Judah would come Mary the birth mother of Jesus and Joseph the legal father, but not the blood father. The blood father of Jesus is Almighty God.  All the children of God shall bow before him and all people shall bow before him.
Php 2:10  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Php 2:11  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus is the Lion of Judah.
Rev 5:5  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

 Jesus the Messiah  is the Shiloh (He who it is, peace maker). In him shall all people gather, the Remnant of Israel. 

The choice vine can be described in John 15.
John 15:1  I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
John 15:2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

 His garments are washed in wine and the blood of grapes. His garments were soaked in his blood, the cleansing blood of the Lamb of God, that takes away our sins.
Mat 26:28  For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

In Revelation Jesus is described.
Rev 1:14  His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Jesus is savior of those who trust in him and he shall judge the world by his word. The blessings of Judah and the blessing of those with the faith like Abraham come through the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is to be a king from the lineage of David of the tribe of Judah and the only begotten son of God.

Rev 19:15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Rev 19:16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

All people bow and worship the King!
