The blessing also included a curse to those who would withstand the plans and purposes of the nation of Israel. Even a casual glance at the nations of the world today indicates a blessing on the nations that have blessed Israel and their true Messiah Yeshua and those that war against Him and exalt a false religion as truth above the Holy Scriptures.
Today as never before we must lift our voices in agreement with God's plans and purposes for the nation of Israel. We must stand as watchmen on the wall in supernatural warfare that the will of God be manifest in the Middle East: "I have set watchmen upon thy walls O Jerusalem which shall never hold thy peace day nor nor night; ye that make mention of the Lord keep not silent. And give Him no rest till He establish and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth." Is. 62:6-7
Calling for the Kingdom of God to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven, let us lift our voices as prescribed in Isaiah 62:1: "For Zion's sake, will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem sake I will not rest until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth."
Even as you read this post, rocket are being fired from Israel's southern border and from her northern border. Air raid sirens are sounding and people are running for their lives. Children and families are being terrorized by the incessant sound of missiles exploding and rockets whistling overhead. Even though Israel has the most advanced weaponry in the world, their greatest strength lies in the promises of God to preserve and protect them. The majority of Israelis are secular and Hebrew only by culture and inheritance. However, according to the Word of the Lord ..."Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion; will turn godlessness away from Jacob. And this is my covenant with them when I take away their sins. As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now receive mercy as a result of God's mercy to you. For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable His judgement, and his paths beyond finding out! Who has known the mind of the Lord? or who has been his counselor? Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them? For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen." Romans 11
Today, as never before, the battle cry is sounding, "PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM, THEY THAT LOVE HER SHALL PROSPER [find heart peace.]. PEACE WITHIN THY WALLS AND PROSPERITY WITHIN THY PALACES. FOR MY BRETHEREN'S SAKE I WILL NOW SAY PEACE BE WITHIN YOU, BECAUSE OF THE HOUSE OF THE LORD OUR GOD I WILL SEEK THY GOOD. PSALMS 122;6
For those reading this blog, that are serious intercessors, please consider the free app RED ALERT ISRAEL. This app will sound an alarm everytime a missile is fired into Israel, also identifying the targeted area. This app was initially developed to help Israelis quickly respond to rocket fire and seek safety in underground shelters. We can use the app to partner with the purposes of God by responding with prayers of protection and peace for the nation of Israel: "BEHOLD, THE LORD HATH PROCLAIMED UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD, SAY YE TO THE DAUGHTER OF SAKE, BEHOLD THY SALVATION COMETH; BEHOLD HIS REWARD IS WITH HIM, AND HIS WORK BEFORE HIM. AND THEY SHALL CALL THEM THE HOLY PEOPLE, THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD; AND THEN THEY SHALL BE CALLED, SOUGHT OUT, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN.'" Isaiah 62:11
