Scripture warns us not to make a hasty vow to God; He will require our obedience.
For thousands of years Israel has suffered under God’s hand of judgement. At the same time many have repented and turned to Him in faith. Now, as we are nearing the “end of days” when God will finally and completely judge Israel and the nations, pray for Israel becomes even more important.
21 And the people said to Joshua, “No, but we will serve the Lord!”
22 So Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord for yourselves, to serve Him.”
And they said, “We are witnesses!”
23 “Now therefore,” he said, “put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the Lord God of Israel.”
24 And the people said to Joshua, “The Lord our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey!”
25 So Joshua made[f] a covenant with the people that day, and made for them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
26 Then Joshua wrote these words in the Book of the Law of God. And he took a large stone, and set it up there under the oak that was by the sanctuary of the Lord. 27 And Joshua said to all the people, “Behold, this stone shall be a witness to us, for it has heard all the words of the Lord which He spoke to us. It shall therefore be a witness to you, lest you deny your God.” 28 So Joshua let the people depart, each to his own inheritance.
PRAY FOR THE FINAL HARVEST OF THE NATION OF ISRAEL THAT THEY WILL RECOGNIZE THEIR MESSIAH AND BE SAVED.
