August 16: Israel’s Redemption & Salvation

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM

Today’s reading in the synagogue begins with a wonderful promise and great rejoicing.

Isaiah 54:4-5

For your Maker is your husband, 
the Lord of hosts is His name; 
and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; 
He is called the God of the whole earth.

But the cause, the reason is the chapter right before.   There is no other portion of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) that more clearly describes the Messiah of Israel.

Isaiah 53:12

…I will divide Him a portion with the great, 
and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, 
because He poured out His soul unto death, 
and He was numbered with the transgressors, 
and He bore the sin of many, 
and made intercession for the transgressors.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO RECOGNIZE HER MESSIAH, WHO IS THE REASON FOR BLESSING AND REJOICING.
