Along with God’s promise of Israel’s future deliverance from all oppressors He calls her to spiritual attention. This same call is needed today. Many in Israel have become weary with the spiritual battles. She is also attacked militarily, emotionally, and politically. Because she has rejected Yeshua as her Redeemer, Savior and Deliverer, she has become confused and discouraged.
Israel must “wake up” to the reality of the battle and of the victory promised only by God’s grace through faith in Yeshua.
Rise up, Jerusalem,
you who have drunk from the hand of the Lord
the cup of his wrath,
you who have drained to its dregs
the goblet that makes people stagger.
Among all the children she bore
there was none to guide her;
among all the children she reared
there was none to take her by the hand.
These double calamities have come upon you—
who can comfort you?—
ruin and destruction, famine and sword—
who can console you?
Your children have fainted;
they lie at every street corner,
like antelope caught in a net.
They are filled with the wrath of the Lord,
with the rebuke of your God.
Therefore hear this, you afflicted one,
made drunk, but not with wine.
This is what your Sovereign Lord says,
your God, who defends his people:
“See, I have taken out of your hand
the cup that made you stagger;
from that cup, the goblet of my wrath,
you will never drink again.
I will put it into the hands of your tormentors,
who said to you,
‘Fall prostrate that we may walk on you.’
And you made your back like the ground,
like a street to be walked on.” (NIV)
PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO HAVE A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IN, THROUGH AND BY FAITH IN YESHUA HER MESSIAH.
