Just as Shiloh refers to Jesus as a messenger, I also find that Shiloh means a peacemaker. In one of his prophecies, Isaiah declared that the Messiah would be “the Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
It’s no wonder then that when Jesus was born, the angels sang, Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth PEACE, good will toward men. (Luke 2:14)
Jesus is the peacemaker between man and God. Just notice today’s verse to illustrate this truth. Oh, our world is in desperate need of peace; however, apart from Jesus, this world will never know the peace that is available to them.
Paul also said in Romans 5:1, “Therefore being justified by faith, we have PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
If you want real peace in your life, “Peace WITH God” and “the Peace OF God,” then turn to Jesus!
Shiloh refers to Jesus as the messenger and the peacemaker; but also, as the deliverer. Praise the Lord for this truth. Most Jewish and Christian scholars agree that this verse was intended to be “Messianic.” In other words, it was meant to be a forecaster of the one who would come and save mankind from his sin.
Truly Jesus was the SAVIOR that Jacob was talking about! He is your deliverer.
