God’s Eternal Evergreens ✡ “Verdant Olive Tree, Fair, With Choice Fruit” – Israel365

Hashem named you “Verdant olive tree, Fair, with choice fruit.” But with a great roaring sound He has set it on fire, And its boughs are broken.

זַיִת רַעֲנָן יְפֵה פְרִי־תֹאַר קָרָא יְהוָה שְׁמֵךְ לְקוֹל הֲמוּלָּה גְדֹלָה הִצִּית אֵשׁ עָלֶיהָ וְרָעוּ דָּלִיּוֹתָיו

ירמיהו יא:טו

Today’s Israel Inspiration

As we enter winter season in Israel we think of the olive tree. Olive trees can live for up to 2,000 years and do not shed their leaves, they are God’s eternal evergreens. God called the people of Israel His olive tree: “Hashem named you verdant olive tree, fair, with choice fruit” (Jeremiah 11:16). And He used the olive tree as a symbol of peace when in Genesis 8:11, the dove sent out from the ark by Noah returned with an olive branch. When we plant olive trees in the Land of Israel, we play a part in ushering in the messianic era. Be a part of the restoration of Israel.
