Israel & Our Friends
Now Think On This
“He has said, “It is not enough that you are merely my servant to raise up the tribes of Ya‘akov
and restore the offspring of Isra’el. I will also make you a light to the nations, so my salvation can spread to the ends of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6, Complete Jewish Bible)
In a few days Laurie and I will embark on another overseas trip to spend time with our friends in Israel. This will be my 12th journey to the Land. For Laurie, her third. As part of the ministry of Love For His People, founded by us in 2010, we seek to show further tangible support for those we lift up in our prayers, with our voice, and with ongoing monthly financial blessing. We spend time with families similar to yours and ours, demonstrating our solid commitment to stand strong with them.
It is a spiritual connection, supernatural in design, bestowed by the Lord Himself. As Derek Prince once said, “You don’t choose Jerusalem; Jerusalem chooses you.” In other words, the Lord God of Israel is the One who speaks His words, choosing ones to stand in the spiritual battle realm, supporting those He has called as His chosen ones. And as a debt we owe to the Jewish people, we take our stand alongside them.
Over the centuries the Jews have been the faithful ones to receive and write down His Scriptures, carefully and dutifully passing them to the next generations, as His Holy Spirit spoke the anointed words through the Jewish prophets. And at the proper time, in fulfillment of the prophecies, the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), came as promised for the good of the nations. If it had not been for their diligence, endurance and commitment through those centuries of destruction, murder and banishment throughout the nations, believers would not have the roots of our faith today.
In the last 100 years and more, the Lord has been regathering the Jews from all over the world to this land promised to them, given in covenant specifically to them since the days of Abraham and Moses. To be a light to the nations, demonstrating the eternal love of God the Father, together with His Only Son, they are fulfilling that prophetic word. Because of His protection and faithfulness to them, this will ever be their home.
“’He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’ (Jeremiah 31:10, NKJV)
“Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. The Lord nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.” (Psalm 33:8-12, NASU)
We delight to uphold the Lord’s plans for His people. We count it a joy to be a part of His purposes for Israel in these last days. We continue to give ourselves to strengthen, encourage and freely give to those who have stood for Him.
To the believers in Yeshua, we give thanks for their commitment to His Name. For those who are yet to know the Messiah, we say that your time will come, and we will be there for you.
