Judah was the fourth son of Jacob and his first wife, Leah.

Genesis 29:35 - She conceived again, and when she gave birth to a son, she said, “This time I will praise the LORD.” So, she named him Judah.

Judah means praise and the praise sets victory in our lives, it can give us peace when everything is falling apart.

We live to praise the Lord.

Genesis 49:8-12 - Judah - your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons will bow down to you. You are a lion's cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion, he crouches and lies down, like a lioness —who dares to rouse him?

What is praise? Praising God is expressing gratitude to him for what he has done and is doing in your life. You don’t have to see your answer with your physical eyes to praise God in faith. But if you will praise Him because you believe He is working on your behalf according to His Word

Judah was the largest, the dominant tribe, the tribe of the monarchy, represented by a Lion, the dominant animal.

In 1949, a year after the establishment of the modern state of Israel, the lion became part of the emblem for the capital city of Jerusalem.

In the wilderness, the tribe of Judah would precede the other tribes whenever Israel moved to a new location.

After entering Canaan, Judah also led the tribes going into battle. Judah goes first, and praise always leads the way into God’s Kingdom!

David was from the tribe of Judah. He knew that the praise precedes the victory.

Psalm 18:46-49 - The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior!  He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me,  who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me. Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name

Now the mosaic blessing

Deuteronomy 33:7 - And this he said about Judah: "Hear, LORD, the cry of Judah; bring him to his people. With his own hands, he defends his cause. Oh, be his help against his foes!"

The last book of the Bible, tells about the second coming of the messiah. Yeshua is also known to be the lion of Judah. He is described as the only one who is worthy of opening the Book of Life.

Revelation 5:5, we read this about Yeshua: “Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah has conquered.”

Praise brings victory!
