Pray for Jerusalem!
June 17, 2010
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you!"
The history and the future of the world are forever linked to the Middle East. So if you have any doubts about whether you and I are living in the last days, Israel is the super sign!
According to the Scripture, the Jewish people must return to Israel before Christ can return.
Well, Israel has been restored and Jews continue to repopulate Israel. The prophecy is being fulfilled even now!
You see, you cannot separate Israel from God's sovereign plan for our world. And even we, as Gentiles, share in this historic connection. From patriarchs to prophets, to apostles, we received the Scriptures through mostly Jewish people. And, of course, our Messiah came to us through David and the Jewish lineage.
By grace we've been grafted into God's extraordinary Kingdom and family. We have a divine and providential connection with Israel and the Jewish people… and this covenant is holy and eternal.
If you want God's blessing in this life, then bless Israel as he instructed us in his Word, and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
And remember, just as surely as Jesus ascended into heaven from Jerusalem's Mount of Olives, he has promised to return to that very place. Jesus is coming soon!
BY GRACE WE'VE BEEN GRAFTED INTO GOD'S
EXTRAORDINARY KINGDOM AND FAMILY.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
