Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth“And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.” Isaiah 4:5
Throughout the entire history of the Jews people – God’s chosen – miracles have been a part of their heritage. The regathering of Israel back in the Promised Land on May 14th, 1948, shows that God has never abandoned His people. Modern-day Israel, though they may not have yet returned to God spiritually, are physically back in the land that is their birthright. The very existence of a Jewish state in Israel in 2014 is a living, breathing miracle from God Himself.
So it comes as no surprise of any kind the current headline out of Gaza where the Hamas rocket launchers are complaining that “their God changes the path of our rockets in mid-air”. That is exactly how the God of the bible operates when His Holy Land is on the line.
As Operation Protective Edge enters into it’s 17th day, the world is slowly but certainly turning against Israel and the right to defend themselves. The prophets of the Old Testament recorded that in the last days the whole world would turn against Israel, and seek to destroy her. Those days are fast approaching, and in the current conflict we see those seeds beginning to sprout.
“Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah. Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments. Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof. Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following. For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.” Psalm 48The bible tells us to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem”, and so we do. Jerusalem, the capital city of Israel, is God’s Holy Land, and the Jews His chosen people.
Am Yisrael Chai.
