Receive The Scepter In Your Home
A scepter is defined as a rod held in the hand as an emblem of regal or imperial power. (Dictionary.com)
Thus, it can only be seen in the home of royal families. But, you too can have a greater scepter in your home!
History of the Scepter
God selected Abraham to be the father of the Israelites. The nation of Israel conquered the land of Canaan and became the supreme ruler.
However, when they sinned against God, He divided their country after the reign of Solomon.
Later Israel, which had the most tribes was destroyed by the Assyrians because of their iniquities against God. But, the Lord spared Judah for a season.
The people of Judah refused to repent in spite of Israel downfall and so God allowed the land to be conquered by the enemy.
After fifty years under the Babylonian rule, they were restored to their homeland so the lineage of David would be preserved.
The tribe of Judah was selected by God because of the commitment that Judah made to his father Jacob to save his brother, Benjamin. (Genesis 43:8-10).

Judah pledged his life to save his brethren and on his second visit to Egypt to purchase food because of the famine that ravaged his country, he became an intercessor for his brothers.
He stood up to plead with Joseph for the life of his brethren. (Genesis 44:16-34). Subsequently, Joseph broke down and revealed himself to his brothers.
If the brothers had not returned with Benjamin to Egypt, the reconciliation would not have happened.
As a matter of fact, if Judah had not risen to the occasion and took on the ultimate responsibility to bring life to his family they would not have received the blessings that God had in store for them.
Before Israel (Jacob) died he blessed all his sons but the blessings of Judah was more profound:
Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion’s whelp; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him?
The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes; and to him shall be the obedience of the people. Binding his donkey to the vine, He washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes. His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk. (Genesis 49: 8-12)
The above prophecy spoke exclusively of Jesus Christ the Messiah and Savior of the world.
When you keep the Lord Jesus Christ (the scepter) in your home the blessings of the Lord will transcend upon your household throughout the generation.
Jesus Christ is the scepter of righteousness that will heal, deliver, restore and give you life. This scepter will also destroy the enemy and it is everlasting (Number 24:17; Esther 4:11; 5:2; Psalms 45:6; Hebrews 1:8).
