Today is Passover. Last night was Good Friday and the start of Passover. Last night Jews and Christians around the world were honoring YHWH who saves! (This was written in 2012.)
This morning, I opened my Bible and my eyes fell on Ezekiel 37:13 :
“Then you shall know that I AM the LORD when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves…”
Was Paul thinking of Ezekiel 37 when he wrote “And so all Israel will be saved….”? (Romans 11:26)
Indeed, the Lord’s words in the passage above (Ezekiel 37) are preceded with, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel.” (Eze 37:11) Think of that!
Then the words continue: “They [the whole house of Israel] indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’”
So there is seen here that the whole house of Israel will confess their hopelessness! Is it not when we come to the end of our own strength and find ourselves lacking that we confess our hopelessness and turn to the LORD who can with His breath breathe new life into a situation? And so He will – for the whole house of Israel!” HalleluYAH!
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be secure who love you!” (Psalm 122:6)
Today in the newsletter from the Jerusalem Prayer Team, Dr. Mike Evans wrote: “Ze’ev Bielski, the member of Israel’s Knesset who chairs the panel on Home Defense Preparation presented a grim assessment this week to the Jewish people of the risk posed by war. Despite great advances in missile defense and the Iron Dome system, Bielski said that Israel’s civil defense is simply not ready to protect the population from the expected massive missile attack. Almost one out of every four Jewish people in Israel does not have access to a bomb shelter. That means more than a million and a half people are at grave risk if and when war breaks out. ” Yes, pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the protection of Almighty God over Israel!
