27 All the
ends ['ephec] of the world ['erets] shall
remember [zakar] and turn [shuwb] unto the LORD: [Yahovah]
and all the kindreds [mishpachah] of the
nations [gowy] shall worship [shachah] before [paniym] thee. KJV-Interlinear
27 All the
ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, And all the families of
the nations will worship before Thee. NASB
When Jesus went to the cross, that was the lowest point of human history and the low point of human spirituality.
Daniel prophesied the year of Christ's birth and death. The Magi recognized the prophecy and its date and traveled a very long way just to meet and see the baby, when people who lived nearby did not even think of it. The birth was further prophesied when the nation of Judea would lose its national identity, losing its scepter of autonomy, which occurred when Rome was the first empire to institute a census and tax. This could have happened with any of the prior occupying forces in the previous centuries, but did not.
Even the line of David which was to be the source of the Messiah, and yet no one bothered to monitor that lineage. All emphasis and focus had been shifted to the priesthood and not the royal dynasty.
When Jesus hung on the cross, even after three and a half years of the most remarkable series of miracles, none of which could be matched or duplicated by anyone, all the people and especially the Pharisees who were the supposed experts of scripture, mocked and despised the very person they had been waiting for, for centuries and had now arrived.
Virtually no one recognized the signs, and virtually no one bothered to check on or verify the signs by comparing the actual events with scripture. That is the quintessence of indifference toward truth when people ignore the facts around them, and look only to their short sighed ego's or lusts or complaints or poor-me attitudes.
And so, the one and only unique person of the universe was not recognized, and was ridiculed and executed without a fair trial, and without legitimate charges.
But God, in His infinite wisdom, took mans actions, and turned evil into good, into mans salvation through Christ's own work on the cross.
And in the end of it all, when humanity the world over and throughout history, ignores and rejects God and His phenomenal plan for each individual person in their own individual life, will one day turn all their arrogant opinions and attitudes into praise.
