1). Looking at this verse it reminds me of a passage in Isaiah that speaks prophetically about the holy influence of Christ Jesus upon his culture and cultures for thousands of years!
a). Isaiah 55:5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
2). Saints, Jesus is the Holy One of Israel! We and millions like us from many nations across thousands of years have run to the one true God, because of Christ Jesus, because He has glorified Him.
