Judgement on the Seacoast
God’s warning to the cities of the seacoast were only partially fulfilled as we see Israel possessing some of these areas. But there will come a day when God will drive out all the rest inhabitants of the seacoast for their treatment of Israel.
For Gaza shall be forsaken,
And Ashkelon desolate;
They shall drive out Ashdod at noonday,
And Ekron shall be uprooted.
Woe to the inhabitants of the seacoast,
The nation of the Cherethites!
The word of the Lord is against you,
O Canaan, land of the Philistines:
“I will destroy you;
So there shall be no inhabitant.”
The seacoast shall be pastures,
With shelters for shepherds and folds for flocks.
The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah;
They shall feed their flocks there;
In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening.
For the Lord their God will intervene for them,
And return their captives.
PRAY FOR THE PEOPLE IN GAZA AND ALONG ISRAEL’S SEACOAST TO TURN TO THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL
