Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

God’s unique relationship with Israel

Although the Bible is primarily a book about Israel and the Jewish people, Yeshua came to reconcile all people to God. Therefore all who have been reconciled share equally in His spiritual blessings.

God is Israel’s Protector

God has always been Israel’s protector. The Bible tells us that in the many nations will continue to fight against Israel, but God will always defend and protect her.

Righteousness

People have always tried to please God by doing activities for Him. They pray, give to charity, and spend hours in religious rituals.

Israel’s redemption and salvation

In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he quotes Psalm 36 as he argues that both Jews and Gentiles sin. Part of the complaint is that no one has the fear of the Lord.

Righteousness

Following Yeshua in the fear of the Lord leads to major life style changes.

Israel’s redemption and salvation
