January 24: God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

Exodus 19:4-6

‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’

These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”

If these were the only words God spoke to Israel there would be no future hope; because Israel has never been able to keep His covenant.

But God continues to forgive and gave Israel (and the world) His New Covenant based on His grace and not their works.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO REPLACE THE OLD WITH THE NEW COVENANT.

It is common in arid parts of Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia and Israel’s Negev Desert. It is also considered an endangered species. In the Greek translation of the the Bible, the Jerboa is considered a biblical hare (Deuteronomy 14:7). In Hebrew: ירבוע (Yerboa)]
