Who would have thought a husband and wife (Abraham and Sarah), at the ages of 100 and 90, would be the start of a nation that God would call His chosen people? This is Israel; the Jewish people.
There are two verses that are extremely important in regard to Israel as was promised to Abraham by God:
“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Gen. 12:2,3
This makes me very concerned about what’s happening in our country with so much anti-semitism riots and terrible treatment of Jewish people and their businesses. It all needs to stop. I fear for our country most of all because of this issue.
Do we not realize, or remember, that God chose a young Jewish virgin girl to give birth to His divine Son, Jesus Christ and that all the families of the earth are blessed as a result of this? He brought salvation to all who will believe. It’s a free gift; not only to the Jews, but to all Gentiles as well; regardless of color or race.
And one more thing–actually a command (not from me); but God says:
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!” Psalm 122:6
Will you do that?
We are closer and closer to the end days and I’ll just close with:
EVEN SO COME, LORD JESUS!
