There has been much in the news recently about violence and unrest in Israel. As Believers in Christ who care deeply about the nation, it is very disturbing to hear these reports. During times like these it is important to take an appraisal of God’s promises for Israel.
“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”— Genesis 12:3
“Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for a light by day, the ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who disturbs the sea, and its waves roar (The Lord of hosts is His name): ‘If those ordinances depart from before Me,’ says the Lord, ‘then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.’”— Jeremiah 31:35-36
“‘For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has mercy on you.”—Isaiah 54:10
“O seed of Abraham His servant, you children of Jacob, His chosen ones! He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. He remembers His covenant forever, the word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac, and confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, saying, ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan as the allotment of your inheritance,’ When they were few in number, indeed very few, and strangers in it.”— Psalm 105:6-12
“We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. Our fathers in Egypt did not understand Your wonders; they did not remember the multitude of Your mercies, but rebelled by the sea—the Red Sea. Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake, that He might make His mighty power known.”— Psalm 106:6-8
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”— Numbers 23:19
“Put Me in remembrance; Let us contend together; State your case, that you may be acquitted.”— Isaiah 43:26
“Tell and bring forth your case; Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the Lord? And there is no other God besides Me, a just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me. Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall take an oath. He shall say, ‘Surely in the Lord I have righteousness and strength. To Him men shall come, and all shall be ashamed who are incensed against Him. In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified, and shall glory.’”— Isaiah 45:21-25
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.’ For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, ‘Peace be within you.’ Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek your good.”— Psalm 122: 6-9
As you pray for the nation of Israel, we encourage you to put God in remembrance of His Word. This brings a greater revelation to us as Believers, of the faithfulness of our God, while also releasing His very plans and purposes into the atmosphere through prayers and petitions for the nation and her people.
