A prophetic sign also. The nations shall know Jehovah when He restores and blesses Israel in the kingdom. (Isa 2:1-3); (Isa 11:10-1214); (Isa 11:1); (Isa 60:4-5); (Eze 37:28).
Compare (Ti2 3:8); (Exo 8:18).
Neither Satan nor his tools can create life: (Rev 13:15) will be a "lying wonder": (Th2 2:9).
(Cf) (Exo 4:2) As Moses' rod was the rod of power, the rod of the King (Deu 33:4); (Deu 33:5) so Aaron's was the rod of life, the rod of the Priest. As here the serpents, symbols of Satan, who had the power of death; (Rev 12:9); (Heb 2:14) are swallowed up, so in resurrection death will be "swallowed up in victory"; (Co1 15:54); (Num 17:8).
