Both the Psalmist and Jeremiah speak of a time when God will bring back the captivity of the Jewish people. The return of the Jews began at the end of the 19th century. Today there are more Jews in Israel than in any other country. That gives us greater motivation to share God’s message of redemption and salvation to Israel.
The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 “Thus speaks the Lord God of Israel, saying: ‘Write in a book for yourself all the words that I have spoken to you. 3 For behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah,’ says the Lord. ‘And I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.’”
God’s promise to Jeremiah is encouraging to us today, but we need to recognize it will also be day of great challenge for the Jewish people, a challenge which makes sharing God’s truth crucial.
PRAY FOR YOUR CHURCH TO COMMIT TO PROCLAIMING GOD’S MESSAGE TO ISRAEL.
