Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

God’s unique relationship with Israel

Most of the world, and even some in the Church are ignorant of God’s unique relationship with Israel. This ignorance is really a spiritual blindness; if Believers are blind, how much greater is the blindness of the world?

Therefore, our prayers must be directed to bringing down that barrier of blindness.

All Things are New

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Messiah’s Eternal Reign: Isaiah 9:7;Zechariah 14:6-9

Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,  to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Messiah’s Ascension and Return: Hosea 5:15; Acts 1: 9-11

Forty days after Yeshua rose from the dead He ascended to the place from which He came – to sit at the Right Hand of the Father.  There He will remain until the time that Israel seeks Him.  At that time He will return and fight for Israel putting His (and her) enemies under His feet.

The Resurrection:1 Corinthians 15:12-17; Psalm 16:9-10

The Resurrection of Yeshua remains the watershed issue of faith.  His Resurrection proved the deity of Yeshua.  Salvation depends on God’s grace and our faith in the atoning death, burial and resurrection of Messiah Yeshua.  Just believing that Yeshua was a good man will not result in reconciliation to God or the forgiveness of sin.

Yeshua’s Crucifixion & Burial

Although there continues to be debate regarding the actual day of His crucifixion and burial, almost every other detail was prophesied in the Hebrew Bible. 

Born to Die

Today we turn our attention to the events surrounding Yeshua’s death. He was rejected, abandoned and betrayed by His followers:

Working of Miracles

Many people say that Jesus never claimed to be God, and yet when asked, Jesus pointed to the miracles He performed, miracles that only God can do. To those who were willing to hear, He proclaimed quite clearly that He was God, that He and the Father were one.

The Good Shepherd

Throughout the Bible God takes care of His people as a shepherd cares for his sheep.

Messiah is God

If the Messiah had to be God and God is triune in nature, then there need be no question if Messiah Yeshua (Jesus the Christ) is God.

God is One

To worship another God would be the intolerable sin of idolatry.  But Jesus not only accepted He commanded it.  (Luke 19:40)  So did the Father require it of Jesus (Psalm 2: 12)
