September 2: God is Israel’s Protector

1 Samuel 7:3

Then Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, “If you return to the Lord with all your hearts, then put away the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and prepare your hearts for the Lord, and serve Him only; and He will deliver you from the hand of the Philistines.”

Today the “Palestinians” claim to be descendants of these ancient enemies of Israel.  Although they are not (the Philistines came from the area of the Aegean Sea), they are still committed to the destruction of Israel.

Nevertheless, God’s response to Israel is still the same – Israel’s loyal devotion to Him and Him only.

    In Genesis 15:18-21 are outlined the boundary lines for the land of Israel that God gave to Abraham as an everlasting covenant. The sign of God’s everlasting covenant with His people, the Jewish nation of Israel is circumcision of every Jewish male. God’s everlasting covenant with the land of Israel and the Jewish people stands forever. Jesus Christ is coming back soon to Jerusalem, Israel, as the everlasting King where He will first rule for 1,000 years! May you put your faith and trust in Jesus alone, the only Saviour of the world. He is returning soon!!!

      amen and amen! Session 6 of the “Untold Story: Christian/Jewish Relations” outlines those boundaries and God’s plans for our future…Israel and the Nations. It’s a great seminar and I’ll be back in the States in July to continue presentation. Keep in touch by email.
