Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

May they prosper who love you

- Psalm 122:6

Shavuot (Pentecost)– The Holy Spirit

Yeshua knew the disciples would feel like orphans when He died and was buried.  Rather than reiterate the promise of His resurrection, He promised them the Holy Spirit to comfort them.

Righteousness

The fear of the Lord can be taught as well as “caught” by example.

God is Israel’s protector

When the Assyrians came to destroy Jerusalem, the Lord did battle and slew 185,000 of the enemy in one night. Not one Israelite had to fight. Miracles like this continue in every war that modern Israel has had to fight.

Redemption and salvation

The Psalmist praises God for “deliverance from all fears” and salvation from all troubles.”

The Nations

Israel wanted to be like other nations, and yet God’s plan for the nations is for them to be like what Israel was meant to be!
