January 28: Jerusalem

Yesterday we remembered the horrors of death and destruction perpetrated against the Jewish people just a few years ago. 

Yet today the land and the people are thriving just as God promised.  Only God could bring such life out of such death.

Zechariah 8:1-6

Again the word of the Lord of hosts came, saying, “Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘I am zealous for Zion with great zeal;
With great fervor I am zealous for her.’

“Thus says the Lord:

‘I will return to Zion,
And dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth,
The Mountain of the Lord of hosts,
The Holy Mountain.’

“Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘Old men and old women shall again sit
In the streets of Jerusalem,
Each one with his staff in his hand
Because of great age.
The streets of the city
Shall be full of boys and girls
Playing in its streets.’

“Thus says the Lord of hosts:

‘If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days,
Will it also be marvelous in My eyes?’
Says the Lord of hosts.

 

PRAY ISRAEL WILL RECOGNIZE GOD’S PROTECTION AND LOVE.
