I truly believe that history is made often without us realizing the significance in the moment. It isn’t until later when we are able to reflect on the events that we are able to understand what truly happened.
The formation of the sovereign nation of Israel is an example of one of those events. Sure, many people do understand the significance of the rebirth of this important nation. But, many of us do not. Either the story hasn’t been told in context of scripture, we are ignorant or we don’t believe in scripture. Have you noticed that it doesn’t matter what the majority of us think though? Major events are occurring with or without us knowing.
As I read scripture, it is apparent that we are to be ambassadors for the Kingdom of Heaven and it is important to understand scripture. Hence my own journey to study scripture as often as I can. It is an area of my life that needs improvement.
Israel is a sovereign nation as prophesied in the Bible. I pray for the nation’s full restoration, comfort, health and protection.
Rejoice with Jerusalem, And be glad with her, all you who love her; Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her; That you may feed and be satisfied With the consolation of her bosom, That you may drink deeply and be delighted With the abundance of her glory. For thus says the Lord: Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; On her sides shall you be carried, And be dandled on her knees. As one whom his mother comforts, So I will comfort you; And you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 66:10-13 NKJV)
