Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Romans 12:15 ESV
The land of Israel is an inheritance to the descendants of Abraham, the Hebrews and no one has the right to steal away an inheritance though this is common in our society… Lord, may my strength increase so that it is as it was 45 years ago. It bugs me to no end that Hebron is not considered to be in Israel at this time in history but instead resides in stolen Palestinian rule. Yet, God will change this.
One day Assyria (Syria, Turkey, Iran, and Iraq, according to what I have found) and Egypt will be aligned with Israel. How awesome is this?
The Cloud of Witnesses that have gone before us are watching us and cheering us on to make it to our eternal abode with them. They are cheering us on to run our faith race with success. I can make it as I keep my eyes on Lord Yeshua, the author and finisher of my faith. Since He endured the Cross with joy, I can endure anything set before me because He graces me and sends His mercy whenever I am in need of these great gifts. Discipline is important in running this race with the Lord. Without training there is no stamina, but I have the best trainer, yes, Yeshua my Messiah. He won’t let me fail. This is the very thing Caleb had. The Lord’s discipline brings me to holiness and the Father said I must be holy for He is holy. Not only that but righteousness lights on me when I am trained by discipline to be righteous. Not all circumstances change because of repentance. Forgiveness comes but the consequences of sin don’t necessarily disappear. The things of this earth will be shaken but the Kingdom of God cannot be shaken.
Meditate & Apply: All of the inheritance of Israel will be returned. The highway from Egypt through to Assyria will be an awesome thing in the day of our Lord for it will mean reconciliation between Israel and the other Countries. Godly discipline is good for me for it never carries the component of legalism but always works favorable in me to live in holiness and righteousness. Keeping my eyes on the Lord and following His every directive keeps me on the winning team instead of the sinning team.
Peace between current enemies will truly be awesome! God knows just what each of us need, body, soul and spirit and is faithful to guide us.
I like that "All of the inheritance of Israel will be returned" and that God will reconcile these countries WITH Israel. For all the arguments of ownership and rulership, etc., GOD IS IN CONTROL and reconciliation is His plan! Amen!
I really like what you said about "Godly discipline." It is a necessary part of life, but easy to say and much harder to do, unless I keep my eyes focused on God, the beginning and the end. "Desire to live in holiness and righteousness. Keeping my eyes on the Lord and following His every directive keeps me on the winning team instead of the sinning team." AMEN!
Keeping my eyes on the Lord and following His every directive keeps me on the winning team instead of the sinning team. So agreed.. I love being on the winning team..hallelujah.
