Good Morning dear Friends:
Today is International Holocaust Day.
“For now have I chosen and hallowed this house, that my name may be there for ever; and my eyes and my heart shall be there perpetually.“2 Chronicles 7:16
I believe that for our own welfare and the welfare of our children, we must never forget the horrendous time of the Nazis. A terrible precedent of racism was set.
The nation of Israel was literally birthed out of those ashes. Two out of every three European Jews perished. Many of us still living have vivid memories of WW2. But sadly, the younger generations are grossly ignorant. That is almost impossible to fathom, I know. It explains the growing curse of anti-Semitism today.
I ask for your prayers for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide. Psalm 130 is recited by Jewish people publicly and privately in times of crisis and need. It is believed to have been the most recited Psalm by Jews in the Holocaust. I invite you to join us here in Israel in reciting it with us today, or when you read my letter. Let us pray for the LORD to show Israel His Salvation.
Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;
O Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
If you, O LORD kept a record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness:
Therefore you are not feared.
I wait for the lord, my soul waits,
And in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord more than
The watchmen wait for the morning,
More than watchmen wait for the morning.
O Israel put your hope in the LORD,
For with the LORD is unfailing love
And with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.New Covenant Prophecy Edition with Psalms The International Version.
The world sneers, “The WHO, said WHAT?”
They do not believe in a livings God, so how can they imagine He chose a people and a nation? To the non-believer, ancient Israel was a land of fables, and there are millions of Christians out there who cannot reconcile with modern Israel. And just look who is in charge of the nations today? Little wonder we have to work overtime to feel safe!
Inexplainable facts about the Israelis.
They are resilient, aware, competitive, aggressive, innovative, inquiring, funny, pushy, driven, sensitive, creative, passionate, compassionate and desperately in need of peace. Many of their ancestors came here from a place where they were not wanted, to a hostile land where no one wanted them. That was before Prophecy kicked in gear and the modern nation of Israel came to rebirth on May 14, 1948. Israel is a tiny piece of earth that was stamped “home” by the Almighty. He even said, “I put my NAME there.” That explains a lot!
This week we Rawlings celebrated the birthdays of four men, three of them on one day! For this, we do give praise, that we are alive and well and prospering by his grace. Thank you for praying. I’d love to hear from you.
Prayer makes all the difference.
