Hey, guys so this month there will be no guest posts on Fridays but hopefully for the month of November we’ll continue with Guest Writers. So for this month on Fridays I want to talk you about Israel and God’s heart for His people (i.e. Israel).
There is this misconception in some churches today, probably prompted by the devil, that God has forsaken His chosen people and has replaced them with the Church. This is called Replacement Theology. In a nutshell Replacement theology essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel.
This is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar from the truth! For all those who read the Bible in the Holy Spirit know that God has NOT forsaken Israel and that his promises of restoration still stand!
I wrote this poem today inspired by Isaiah 62 (haven’t be able to think of a title yet) as a declaration on behalf of my Jewish brothers and sisters:
For Zion’s sake I will not stay quiet,
For Jerusalem’s sake, my voice I’ll raise.
Till in every street and market place,
The people lift up Jehovah’s praise.
The Lord has set me up,
As a watchman upon your wall.
Day and night I’ll remind the Lord,
Of His promises and His call.
For you, O Jerusalem,
Shall be given a new name.
The Lord your God promises,
Yes, His mouth proclaims.
Take courage, Judah,
You shall not be Forsaken.
With His righteous right hand,
Your iniquities He has taken.
In the hand of your God,
A royal diadem you shall be.
Your righteousness and salvation,
And glory the world shall see.
Behold, the Lord has proclaimed,
O Zion, His word He will fulfill.
Your salvation comes, His reward is with Him,
And His work and recompense before Him.
Nations will call you the Holy People,
Redeemed of the Lord you shall be.
A City not Forsaken, but Sought Out by God
Unlike any other the world has ever seen.
If this topic interests you, let me know and I’ll share with you how you can pray for Israel.
God bless you!
