Ramifications Around Israel

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why the fuss over Jerusalem? The answer can only be found in the Word of God. This is a spiritual battle. Satan declared in Isaiah 14:13-14 that he would wage warfare against God Almighty not only from Jerusalem, but from the Temple site. He declared, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”

Jerusalem is the only city which God claims as His own; for that reason it is called the “City of God.” He declares in II Chronicles 33:7, “In this temple and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put My Name forever.” David, the psalmist, wrote in Psalm 102:16, “For the Lord will rebuild Zion and appear in His glory.”

In Isaiah 62:1, the prophet cries out, “For Zion's sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.” Isaiah added another amazing prophecy in chapter 2, verse 3: “For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”


God’s Promises Regarding Israel

God’s covenant with Abraham was a seven-fold promise:

 

 - "I will make of you a great nation" (Gen. 12:1-3; 13:16; 17:18-20; 24:34, 35; Gal. 3).

 - "Make your name great" (Gen. 12:1-3, Ex. 2:24, 25; 6:3-8).

 - "You shall be a blessing" (Gen. 12:1-3; Gal. 3:13, 14).

 - "I will bless them that bless you" (Gen. 12:1-3; Matt. 25:31-46).

 - "I will bless you" (Gen. 13:14-18; 15:18-21; Gal. 3).

 - "I will curse them that curse you" (Zech. 14; Matt. 25:31-46).

 - "In you shall all the nations of the world be blessed" (Deut. 28:8-14; Isa. 60:3-5; 66:18-21, Gal. 3:16; John 8:56-58).

 

God Will Protect

Jeremiah 31:10 states,

 

Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, "He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock."

 

In May 1948, when the State of Israel was reborn after two thousand years, God ordained that this particular message should be proclaimed in every nation of the earth. It is being fulfilled before your eyes and in your ears today. Now we can say, "He who scattered Israel is gathering him and will keep him as a shepherd does his flock."

 

These are days when absolutely no one knows, in the natural, what will happen tomorrow in Israel. A war could break out there within twenty‑four hours without any warning. But in the midst of it all, God will protect Israel as a shepherd protects his flock. There is a guarantee that no matter the political pressures and the violence that erupt, God will protect regathered Israel.

 

The Lord gives us the same promise in Psalm 121:7‑8:

 

"The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever" (NASB).

 

It is so good to know that God is with you, not only when you begin the journey, but also when you come to the end; not just when you go to work in the morning, but also when you come home again in the evening. God is still with you, and He will protect you and keep you from this time forth and forever. The Creator is our keeper.

 

Healer of the Brokenhearted

In Psalm 147:2‑3, we read,

 

“The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds" (NIV).

 

Those are beautiful words, but the most exciting thing about them is that they are being fulfilled in this generation, in our lifetime.

 

Again, since the State of Israel was reborn in 1948, we have seen the outworking of those words. God is gathering the exiles of Israel. He is healing the brokenhearted and binding up their wounds.

 

That is good news for all who will turn to God. It is good news for God's people, Israel. It is also good news for the church of Y’shua Messiah (Jesus the Christ) because the same God who is gathering Israel is gathering the church back to Himself, bringing us into our inheritance, healing our wounds, and binding up our broken hearts.

 

There is an ongoing ministry of the Holy Spirit that is very special—a ministry to the brokenhearted. It is a ministry to those whose hearts are wounded. If you carry a wound inside you, turn to God and say, "God, this is a time of restoration. It is a time of regathering. You are healing the brokenhearted. You are binding up their wounds. Lord, You know the wound I have carried so long in my heart. Will You heal me?"

 

And the invisible finger of God, the Holy Spirit, will reach down where no surgeon can reach and touch that wounded place in your life to bring you healing and restoration.

 

Showing Mercy to Israel

It is important for us all to acknowledge the truth of what Y’shua (Jesus) said to the Samaritan woman at the well: "Salvation is of the Jews" (John 4:22). Without the Jews, we would have no patriarchs, no prophets, no apostles, no Bible, and no Savior! Without all these, how much salvation would we receive? None! The Bible makes it clear that God requires the Christians of all other nations to acknowledge their debt to the Jews and to do what they can to repay it. In Romans 11:30‑31, Paul summed up what he had been saying about the debt and the responsibility of the Gentile Christians toward Israel.

 

For as you [Gentiles] were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their [Israel's] disobedience, even so these [Israelites] also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you [Gentiles] they [Israel] also may obtain mercy.

 

In other words, because of God's mercy that has come to Gentile Christians through Israel, God requires us in our turn to show mercy to Israel. How shall we fulfill this obligation? The following are four practical ways that we may do so.

 

First, we can cultivate and express an attitude of sincere love for Jewish people.

 

Second, we can enjoy and demonstrate the abundance of God's blessings in Christ in such a way that the Jews may be made jealous and desire what they see us enjoying.

 

Third, we can seek the good of Israel through our prayers and petitions, as the Bible exhorts us to do. (See Romans 10:1.)

 

Fourth, we can seek to repay our debt to Israel by performing practical acts of kindness and mercy.

 

Favor for Zion—The Jewish Homeland

The Lord says that the regathering of Israel in our day is a banner raised by Him for the nations. Events in Israel and the Middle East today are at the center of world attention and media coverage. This period of Israel's regathering at the end of the age was marked out clearly on God's great prophetic calendar three thousand years ago. Here is one of the passages that make this clear:

 

You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her, the appointed time has come. For her stones are dear to your servants, her very dust moves them to pity. The nations will fear the name of the LORD, all the kings of the earth will revere your glory. For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory.... Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD.   (Psalm 102:13‑16, 18 NIV)

 

Now is God's appointed time to have mercy on Zion and to show favor to her. This is not something that Zion or the Jewish people have earned, but something that comes out of God's sovereign grace and mercy. One of the main purposes of what God is doing is to bring glory to His own name in the sight of all the nations by fulfilling His promises to Israel. The rebuilding of Zion is one of the great biblical signs that the time is at hand for the Lord to appear in His glory. We have the great privilege of living in the time that the psalmist here foresaw. We believe we are the ones being created as a people in response to what God is doing for one supreme purpose: to bring praise to the Lord.

 

God of Covenant

In Psalm 89:34, God said,

 

"My covenant I will not violate, nor will I alter the utterance of My lips" (NASB).

 

It is of tremendous importance that we grasp the fact that when God makes a covenant, He will never break it. We need to know that.

 

Our Bible consists of two covenants: the old and the new. Therefore, the essence of divine revelation is centered in covenant. If God were to break His covenant, we would have no hope. We believe that if God were to break His covenant with Israel, we would have no reason to believe that He would not break His covenant with the church. You may say, "Well, Israel failed God." Undoubtedly. But can you honestly say that the church has not also failed God?

 

We are not capable of presenting God's point of view, but in our limited understanding, we see Israel receiving a covenant and failing dismally. We see the church receiving a covenant and failing even worse than Israel. What is God saying to us about the restoration of Israel? We suggest that God is saying at least four things, all of them extremely topical, relevant, and important for the church of Jesus Christ,

 

First, God is saying that the Bible is a true, relevant, up‑to‑date book.

 

Second, God is saying that He keeps His covenant.

 

Third, God is saying to us that He is sovereign.

 

The fourth thing the Lord is saying is that in restoring the Israelites to their land, God has set the stage for the last act of the drama of this age. Every prophecy that relates to the close of this age is predicated on one important factor‑the presence of Israel as a sovereign nation within its own borders.

 

God Demands a Response

We believe that God requires a response from His believing people regarding what He is doing in Israel and the Middle East. We are not permitted to remain neutral, apathetic, or indifferent. God demands a response. In the book of Jeremiah, the prophet told us what the Lord commands us to do:

 

Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the foremost [or chief] of the nations. Make your praises heard, and say, "0 LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel." (Jeremiah 31:7‑8 NIV)

 

The New American Standard Bible reads, "Proclaim, give praise, and say" (verse 7). Combining these two versions, we find there are five responses that God requires. In a sense, they are all vocal: sing, shout, praise, proclaim, and say (or pray).

 

What are we responding to? The regathering of the remnant of Jacob. To whom is this command addressed? The church, we who believe that the Bible is the Word of God and that we ought to obey it.

 

God is asking us to intercede for Israel. He is saying, "I am restoring My people. I am regathering them, and I am asking you to unite with Me and My purposes through prayer." We believe that we must all face this as one of the mysterious facts about God: when He intends to do something, He will say to His people, "Pray that I will do it." In other words, He says, "This is My intention, but it will not happen until you pray.”

 

As Christians, we have a tremendous responsibility to be totally committed to the outworking of God's purposes in history.

 

Praying for the Peace of Jerusalem

In Genesis 12:2‑3, we read God's original promise to Abraham when He told him to leave Ur of the Chaldeans and go to another land:

 

I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.  (NIV)

 

The Jewish people are the touchstone by which all other nations are going to be judged. Scripture gives us a warning in this regard:

 

"May all who hate Zion, be put to shame and turned backward" (Psalm 129:5 NASB).

 

Any nation that opposes God's purpose for the restoration of Zion will be put to shame and turned backward. Nations determine their destinies by how they respond to the restoration of God's people.

 

A beautiful and familiar promise of blessing for those who align themselves with God's purposes for Jerusalem, for Israel, and for God's people is found in Psalm 122:6:

 

"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper who love thee" (KJV).

 

We cannot merely take a neutral attitude and say, "Let's see what happens." We have to actively align ourselves with what God is saying in His Word and what He is doing in history.

 

The primary way in which we can do this is through our prayers. We can pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for its restoration‑for Jerusalem to become all that God has declared in the Scriptures that it shall be. To those who pray and are concerned, this is the promise: "They shall prosper who love thee."

 

Seeking Israel’s Good by Prayer

The Bible exhorts us to seek the good of Israel through our prayers. To pray effectively in this way, we need to search out from the Scriptures God's purposes for Israel and Jerusalem. Then, we need to set ourselves to pray intelligently and consistently for the outworking and fulfillment of those purposes. As we make this scriptural study, we will discover that, ultimately, righteousness and peace are ordained to flow forth from Jerusalem to all the nations of the earth. Thus, the well‑being of every nation is included in this prayer for Jerusalem and depends on its fulfillment.

 

A challenging scriptural example of this kind of praying was provided by Daniel, who prayed three times daily with his window open toward Jerusalem. Daniel's prayers disturbed Satan and threatened his kingdom such that he used the jealousy of evil men to bring about a change in the laws of the entire Persian Empire so that Daniel's prayers would be rendered illegal. Still, praying for Jerusalem meant so much to Daniel that he preferred to be cast into the lions' den rather than give up his praying. Ultimately, Daniel's faith and courage overcame the satanic opposition. He emerged triumphant from the lions' den, and kept praying for Jerusalem.

 

Cosider that making a commitment of this kind to pray for Jerusalem and Israel definitely stirs up a special measure of opposition from satanic forces. On the other hand, consider also that God's promise given to those who pray in this way holds true.

 

This is a scriptural pathway to prosperity—not merely financial or material prosperity, but also a prosperity that encompasses an abiding assurance of God's favor.

 

God’s Restoration For His People

The call to pray for Jerusalem is directed at everyone who accepts the Bible as God's authoritative Word. God requires all of His people, from every nation and every background, to be concerned about the peace of one particular city: Jerusalem. There is a practical reason for this. God's purpose for this age will climax in the establishment of His kingdom. Each time we pray the familiar words, "Thy kingdom come,” we are aligning ourselves with this purpose. (See, for example, Matthew 6:10 KJV.)

 

We must remember, however, that the prayer continues, "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven" (verse 6:10 KJV). It is on earth that God's kingdom is to be established. His kingdom is invisible as yet to human eyes, but it is not vague or amorphous. It will ultimately have a tangible, earthly realization. The capital and center of God's kingdom on earth will be the city of Jerusalem. The administration of righteous government will go forth from Jerusalem to all nations on earth. In response, the gifts and worship of these nations will flow back to Jerusalem. Thus, the peace and prosperity of all nations depend on that of Jerusalem. Until Jerusalem enters into her peace, no nation on earth can know true, lasting peace.

 

To all who heed God's call to love Jerusalem and pray for her peace, God gives a special, precious promise: "They shall prosper" (Psalm 122:6 KJV). The word translated "prosper" goes beyond the material realm. It denotes a deep, inner well‑being, a freedom from care and anxiety. As we align ourselves with God's plan by praying for Jerusalem, we experience a foretaste of His peace. A sense of inner rest and peace comes to those who, in the midst of all the turmoil of this world, associate themselves actively with God's plans to restore His people.

 

Reminding the Lord

In Isaiah 62, God calls us to intense, persistent prayer, especially on behalf of Jerusalem:

 

“I have posted watchmen on your walls, 0 Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” (Isaiah 62:6‑7 NIV)

 

In the New Testament, Jesus related the parable of the unjust judge, whom a widow kept beseeching incessantly. Jesus concluded with this question: “And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?" (Luke 18:7 NIV). Both these passages indicate that some themes are so important and urgent that they demand our prayers not only in the daytime, but through the night hours, as well. The restoration of Jerusalem is one of these themes.

 

The prophet Isaiah also described these "watchmen" as those "who call on the LORD." The literal Hebrew meaning of the word translated "call" is interesting. It means "those who remind the Lord." In modern Hebrew, it is the word for a secretary. One important task of a secre­tary is reminding the employer of the appointments recorded on his calendar. This provides practical insight into the way God wants us to pray for Jerusalem. As His "intercessor‑secretaries," we have two main responsibilities: first, to be familiar with His prophetic calen­dar; second, to remind Him of the appointments recorded in it. One such appointment is God's end‑time commitment to restore Israel and to rebuild Jerusalem.

 

Speaking Comfort

How do we align ourselves with God's purpose for Israel? Here’s one simple suggestion. In Isaiah 40:1‑2, God said, "'Comfort, yes, comfort My people!' says your God. 'Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned; for she has received from the LORD's hand double for all her sins.'"

 

Where it says, "comfort My people," because of the immediate reference to Jerusalem, we understand it to mean the Jewish people. The Jewish people cannot be comforted apart from Jerusalem. Their hearts are totally bound up with the city of Jerusalem. So, if we are correct, and "My people" is the Jewish people, to whom are these words spoken? They are spoken in the plural (in Hebrew) to somebody who would say, "Comfort My people." They must be spoken to people who accept the God of the Bible and the authority of His Word. Who can that be? You and me. People like us, believing Christians. What does God say? "Comfort My people, Israel." God requires us to comfort Israel.

 

We were not called to criticize; rather, we have been commanded to comfort. Will you accept that responsibility?

 

We believe this comforting is one way of preparing the way of the Lord. Centuries of prejudice, alienation, and misunderstanding must be broken down. They must be melted away by the warmth of real Christian love. We believe that is our assignment at this time.

 

Peace and Prosperity

Be strongly encouraged to pray daily for the peace of Jerusalem and Israel. We believe that when the Bible says, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem" (Psalm 122:6), it also means that we are to pray for the peace of Christ's body. We should be concerned not just about our own little area, but for the total needs of the body of Christ. We are not to judge other Christians; we are to pray for them.

 

Psalm 122:7 says, "Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces." We believe that this verse illustrates the divine order: when we have peace, we will have prosperity. When we are at war with one another—criticizing one another, turning against one another, and undermining one another—we will not know prosperity. First, peace; then, prosperity.

 

Verse 8 reads, "’For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, 'Peace be within you.'"

 

We want you to consider an additional basic principle. We need to escape from the tendency to be self‑centered. Self‑centeredness is the devil's prison. The more the devil gets you centered in yourself, the more he has you at his mercy. We have dealt with hundreds of people in deliverance from evil spirits, and we have found one almost universal feature of people who need deliverance—they are self‑centered. By deliberate effort and choice of our own wills, we must break loose from being self‑centered.

 

Consider the lovely phrase of verse 8: "For the sake of my brethren and companions." It is not enough that things are going well for me. I need to be concerned about the needs of my brothers and companions—Christians from other backgrounds, other denominations, other prayer groups, and so forth.

The Ramifications Around Israel

U.S. to Abandon Israel?

The Ramifications of Abandoning Israel

The Ramifications for the Fight Against Radical Islam

And What You Can Still Do

 

In 1948, Israel again became a sovereign nation.

 

Even before the ink was dry on her Declaration of Independence, Israel’s Arab neighbors attacked in an attempt to drive the Jewish people from their newly-acquired homeland. God miraculously delivered the tiny nation from her vastly larger enemies.

 

Today the same hatred and bigotry toward Israel and the Jewish people is alive and well in our world. Powerful forces in Tehran, Damascus, and many other Muslim cities would love nothing more than for Israel’s 64th birthday to be her last. Extremist “twelvers” like Iran’s President Ahmadinejad believe that a bloody war is an absolute necessity to bring about Muslim rule over the entire world.

 

The threat against Israel today is the most serious the Jewish state has faced since her rebirth in 1948. Today we MUST do all that we can to stand in the gap to deliver Israel from destruction.

 

Iran, an Islamic state, has threatened to wipe Israel off the map and it is rapidly acquiring the nuclear technology with which to make good on this threat. In the meantime, Iran’s proxies in Hezbollah and Hamas are arming themselves at an alarming rate, and Hamas has been firing missiles into Southern Israel. 

 

Be reminded of the promises stated, "I will bless them that bless you" and "I will curse them that curse you."

 

Our nation will be blessed or cursed depending on our actions toward Israel in the near future.  (see Joel 3:1-2) 

Our Direction in Supporting Israel

A short interview has been conducted and posted on the website of the Northeast Intelligence Network (investigating threats to our homeland). It is a sobering assessment of the direction the U.S. government is moving with respect to support for Israel. (See link to the interview below.)

 

Americans who view the conflict between Israel and the Islamic forces surrounding it as a Middle East regional problem fail to grasp the ramifications for the global war against Islamic terrorism. History demonstrates that Islamist military and cultural expansion was stopped, and in some cases pushed back, when it was met with organized, effective resistance.

Such resistance often proved to be psychologically devastating to the Islamists, who believed their prospective victory over “infidel” societies was divinely ordained and thus inevitable. Since the mid-20th century, Israel has been on the front lines of this resistance. Its successes in resisting Islamic jihad campaigns during the latter half of the 20th century angered militant Muslims around the world, but this successful resistance meant that most of the countries of the world – including the U.S. – did not, during this time period, have to fight an empowered and emboldened Islamic jihad on their own soil.

It is a sound position that as Israel, at the urging of the U.S., capitulated to Islamist demands, such as in the Oslo Peace Accords, its Islamist enemies were energized, empowered and emboldened. Couple this with a massive immigration of Muslims to Europe and the United Kingdom, the financing of Islamic terrorist and terror-related organizations with petrodollars, and the infiltration of American academia, media and government by Islamists and their sympathizers, and it is no surprise to us that the current wave of Islamic violent and cultural jihad worldwide has achieved the power and momentum it has.

If the U.S. abandons Israel the damage this will do to our country (see the Holy Scriptures above) will be incalculable, not to mention the damage done to the collective worldwide efforts to roll back this rising tide.

 

As Osama bin Laden stated shortly after 9/11, the world is looking to follow the “strong horse.” Capitulation in the Middle East will only serve to reinforce the growing belief in the Islamic world that the West is the “weak horse” that is ripe for conquering. The stronger and fiercer this belief becomes, the harder it will be to defeat it.

Moves by the Obama administration, including President Obama’s message(s) to Iran, reveal that this administration does not recognize or understand the ramifications of abandoning Israel and globally, an empowered Islamic jihad. As then-Senator Joe Biden wrote a year ago, “To compare terrorism with an all-encompassing ideology like communism and fascism is evidence of profound confusion.” On the contrary, Biden’s statement is evidence of “profound confusion.”

The struggle in the Middle East is not about a Palestinian state – such a state could have been carved out in an Arab country long ago.

 

The Israelis have demonstrated their dedication to peace and have taken great risks for it. Yet, as you know, these risks have not always paid off. When Israel withdrew from southern Lebanon in 2000, the result was not peace but thousands of Hezbollah rockets landing in northern Israel. When Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, the result was not peace but thousands of Hamas rockets landing in southern Israel.

This is about 14 centuries of Islamic hatred of Jews, and the supremacist ideology embedded in the holy books of Islam. And make no mistake: If they think they can conquer the Jews, they will extend their jihad to the rest of us “infidels,” with weapons of mass destruction in their arsenal.


There is still time for us (Americans) to rise up and demand that we cease capitulating to Islamist demands and actions. This is the reason for being for ACT! for America,
a grassroots network committed to informed and coordinated civic action that will lead to public policies that promote America’s national security and the defense of American democratic values against the assault of radical Islam.     [source]

Is the Islamist threat real?

 

 

 

Intercede for Israel! (Romans 10:1; Psalm 122:6)

“Once, you Gentiles were rebels against God, but when Israel [the Jews] refused his mercy, God was merciful to you instead. And now, in the same way, the Jews are the rebels, and God's mercy has come to you. But someday they [Israel], too, will share in God's mercy.” (Romans 11:30-31)

 

O God, do not be silent!

Do not be deaf.

Do not be quiet, O God.

Don’t you hear the uproar of your enemies?

Don’t you see that your arrogant enemies are rising up?

They devise crafty schemes against your people;

they conspire against your precious ones.

“Come,” they say, “let us wipe out Israel as a nation.

We will destroy the very memory of its existence.”

Yes, this was their unanimous decision.

They signed a treaty as allies against you.”

—Psalm 83:1-5

Psalm 83 asks God to do His part and God asks us to do our part in Isaiah 62;

“Because I love Zion,

I will not keep still.

Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem,

I cannot remain silent.

I will not stop praying for her

until her righteousness shines like the dawn,

and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.”

Isaiah 62:1

 

“For this is what the LORD says; “Sing with gladness for Jacob [Israel], and shout among the greatest of nations! Publish [proclaim], praise, and say [pray], O LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north, and gather them from the distant corners of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and women about to give birth. A great company shall return!” (Jeremiah 31:7-8)

Proclamations for Israel

(New King James Version unless otherwise indicated)

 

 

He who scattered Israel is gathering him, and will keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock.   (Jeremiah 31:10b 1)

 

 

Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion. Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withers before it grows up.   (Psalm 129:5‑6 [KJV])

 

 

Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues!     (Psalm 55:9a)

 

 

The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous ...     (Psalm 125:3a [NIV])

 

 

For the LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name's sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make Israel His people.   (1 Samuel 12.22)

 

 

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 brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the LORD stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, And the people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.   (Psalm 33:8‑12)

 

 

Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who save those who trust in You From those who rise up against them. Keep Israel as the apple of Your eye; Hide them under the shadow of Your wings, From the wicked who oppress them, From their deadly enemies who surround them.     (Psalm 17:7‑9 2)

 

 

"If it had not been the LORD who was on our side," Let Israel now say‑"If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, When men rose up against us, Then they would have swallowed us alive, When their wrath was kindled against us; Then the waters would have overwhelmed us, The stream would have swept over our soul; Then the swollen waters would have swept over our soul." Blessed be the LORD, Who has not given us as prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.    (Psalm 124)
