Today’s verse gives a crucial message to the Nation of Israel during the recent spate of vicious terror attacks. We recall God’s eternal promise that He “will not cast off forever” and His people will be redeemed. Last week, a 13-year-old Jewish girl was murdered while asleep in her bed by a Palestinian terrorist, and a father of ten was shot and killed in cold blood by terrorists while driving with his family before the onset of the Sabbath. The nation of Israel is in mourning, crying out to God, pleading for the suffering to come to an end. Please support these stricken families, for whom financial woes should be their last thought as they grieve their terrible losses. May the God of Israel grant true and eternal peace to the People of Israel living in the Land of Israel.
While the Romans are long gone, the return of the Jewish Nation to its borders proves the eternality of the Nation of Israel. Can you name this famous Roman ruin in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem? Send me an email or post your answer on Facebook.
