A False Peace
Even today people believe that if Israel would “just” go away there would be peace. But what might be okay for the nations is NOT okay for God.
With Israel scattered around the world, the nations felt that there was peace…Israel was no longer a problem. But God was furious!
On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zechariah the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet: I saw by night, and behold, a man riding on a red horse, and it stood among the myrtle trees in the hollow; and behind him were horses: red, sorrel, and white. Then I said, “My lord, what are these?” So the angel who talked with me said to me, “I will show you what they are.”
And the man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, “These are the ones whom the LORD has sent to walk to and fro throughout the earth.”
So they answered the Angel of the LORD, who stood among the myrtle trees, and said, “We have walked to and fro throughout the earth, and behold, all the earth is resting quietly.”
PRAY FOR YOUR NATION AND YOUR CHURCH TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S PURPOSES FOR ISRAEL IS NOT POLITICAL BUT SPIRITUAL.
