February 20: The Nations

God continues His message by warning the nations what He will do if they continue trying to take the land of Israel.

Ezekiel 36:6-15

 “Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.”  Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame.  But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come.  For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown.  I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.  I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.  Yes, I will cause men to walk on you, My people Israel; they shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.

‘Thus says the Lord God: “Because they say to you, ‘You devour men and bereave your nation of children, therefore you shall devour men no more, nor bereave your nation anymore,” says the Lord God.  “Nor will I let you hear the taunts of the nations anymore, nor bear the reproach of the peoples anymore, nor shall you cause your nation to stumble anymore,” says the Lord God.’” (NKJV)

PRAY FOR YOUR CHURCH TO TEACH ALL OF  GOD’S WORD REGARDING ISRAEL, THE LAND AND THE PEOPLE.
