The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|Rule the nations with a rod of iron|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,|
and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father.|
|She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne,|
|From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.|
