February 22: God’s unique relationship with Israel

Prophecies lead to preparation

God wants His all mankind to know Him.  He reveals Himself through His creation, and also sent His prophets to speak directly to mankind.  Some estimate that there are over 300 specific prophecies of Yeshua’s first coming.  The prophets told of the Incarnation (God becoming man), when, where and how He would be born, His death, His burial and His resurrection.  It has also been estimated that there are 8 times more prophecies of His second coming!

People like Daniel, Simeon and Anna knew the how the earlier prophecies were relevant to their time.  They were prepared.  Daniel prayed.

            Daniel 9:1-2

In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the lineage of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans— in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.


Irena Sendler was a Polish nurse, humanitarian, and social worker who served in the Polish Underground in German-occupied Warsaw during World War II, and was head of the children’s section of Żegota.
Assisted by some two dozen other Żegota members, Sendler smuggled approximately 2,500 Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto and then provided them with false identity documents and shelter outside the Ghetto, saving those children from the Holocaust. With the exception of diplomats who issued visas to help Jews flee Nazi-occupied Europe, Sendler saved more Jews than any other individual during the Holocaust.
