"But last of all he sent unto them
his son, saying, They will
reverence my son."
However, the phrase "they will reverence my son" is one that people use to say, "Well why didn't they reverence Christ then?" The fact of the matter is that the language means they SHOULD reverence my son, for the time will come when they will whether they like it or not. This reverence that they should have given Him is one that He will repay. The Lord does repay and collects, no matter whether we think He is paying attention or not. The Lord did indeed repay those wicked husbandmen (Jewish nation) in AD 70 for the death of His Son.
However, even though they should have reverenced Christ, on the day of the glorious resurrection, everyone will reverence Christ. Every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord. Both the just and the unjust will be raised, but one shall see the Lord and behold Him in righteousness, and the other shall see and behold Him in judgment. The Lord will smile upon us on that day, and His wrath will be poured out upon the wicked from that moment forever. May we ever labour in His vineyard, show His Son the proper reverence that is due Him, and bring forth fruits that are meet for the Lord's service.
