To All Concerned:
We all recall during Jesus' earthly life and ministry, he was never revered by "kings" and "princes" of this world. And never did they ever, ever "BOW DOWN" to Jesus while he was on earth, thus showing great respect to him ... "rising up" even before him, out of respect for his superior kingship.
Therefore, the churches of christendom say this prophecy then, must be fulfilled when Jesus comes back to earth to rule it, as a man. (Zechariah 8:23) However, we know Jehovah's Witnesses don't believe Jesus will ever come back to live upon the earth, as a man, in order to rule it and get glory & respect from earth's rulers. And yet, the prophecy does clearly show this will happen, by saying:
"This is what Jehovah, the Repurchaser of Israel, his Holy One, has said to him that is despised in soul, to him that is detested by the nation, to the servant of rulers: "Kings themselves will see and certainly rise up, [and] princes, and they will bow down, by reason of Jehovah, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who chooses you." -- Isaiah 49:7 (New World Translation)
How do you think this prophecy will be fulfilled?
