January 13: God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

Deuteronomy 7:12-16

 “Then it shall come to pass, because you listen to these judgments, and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the mercy which He swore to your fathers.  And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you.  You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock.  And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you.  Also you shall destroy all the peoples whom the Lord your God delivers over to you; your eye shall have no pity on them; nor shall you serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you.

Israel was never expected to keep the Mosaic Law; it was only a teacher to lead her to accept the New Covenant – fulfilled by Yeshua.

PRAY FOR ALL ISRAEL TO ACCEPT THE NEW COVENANT PROMISED TO THEM BY THE LORD THEIR GOD.
