Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

August 25: God is Israel’s protector; the Nations

August 25: God is Israel’s protector; the Nations

Although there have been sieges against Jerusalem in the past, this prophesy has yet to be completely fulfilled.  However the Lord is making Jerusalem a cup of trembling. 

Zechariah 12:1-3

The [a]burden of the word of the Lord against Israel. Thus says the Lord, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him: “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of [b]drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. 



Almost every political problem in the world, in one way or another, can be traced back to this disturbance in the Middle East, between the Israelis and the Palestinians.” (Tony Blair)


The “issue” of Israel is not political, it is spiritual. And a spiritual problem cannot be settled with a political solution. (Joan Lipis)
