– God’s Purpose for Israel
God chose Israel to be a light to the Gentiles. Israel’s purpose would be to show people what God is like in His character and in His ways.
The Lord has made known his power to save.
He has shown the nations that he does what is right.
3 He has shown his faithful love
to the people of Israel.
People from one end of the earth to the other
have seen that our God has saved us.
To fulfill that purpose, Israel had to:
Preserve His word (Romans 9:4; 15:4)
Prove God’s choice (Romans 9:11)
Give birth to Messiah Yeshua (Genesis 3:15; Galatians 4:4-5)
Invite Him to return (Matthew 23:37-39)
Be the reason for judging the nations (Joel 3:1-3; Zechariah 1:18-21; 12:1-4; Matthew 25:31-46).
PRAY ISRAEL WILL BE OBEDIENT AND FULFILL ALL OF GOD’S PURPOSES.
