Gods Everlasting Covenant With Israel!

God’s Everlasting Covenant with Israel

As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

Ezekial 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
God has made and everlasting covenant with Israel. We, the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, have been graciously engrafted into this covenant, by the King of the Jews.

Though many have attacked her, she will prevail, for God is with here.

“First of all, Arafat is wrong. Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, will never be divided, and will remain the capital of the State of Israel, the capital of the Jewish people, for ever and ever.” Benjamin Netanyahu

We, the church must be in prayer for Israel.

Ps 122:6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Ps 48:KJV
Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

For Muslims, we pray that they desist attacking Israel, and find the mercy and love and forgiveness of this same Jesus, or they will be destroyed…God cannot lie, and He stands upon what He has said, forever, with Israel.

Let’s pray:
‘Father, I pray for the peace and protection of Israel today, for your victory over her enemies. I pray you open the eyes of both Israel and every Muslim to see Jesus, in His glory, and mercy, as He stands upon our Father’s word, in defense of Israel today. Only in His rule and reign, as Prince of Peace, can there be true peace…Forgive Father, and reveal your forgiveness, love, and mercy today, I pray, in your name Lord Jesus, Amen.’

Why Jerusalem? Why Israel?

Mic 4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
Mic 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and

the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

This is the last days. This is a prophetic word, given by God to the prophet Micah, for these times.

We are the nations, and we are to go, to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, to the city of the great King, Jerusalem, capital of the whole earth, city of our God. Jesus is Jewish, and this is His country, His home, His land! If we claim to love Him, we must love His homeland, His family, His people…

Our Christian conviction is that Christ is also the messiah of Israel. Certainly it is in the hands of God how and when the unification of Jews and Christians into the people of God will take place.
Pope Benedict XVI

The Word of the Lord shall be decreed from Jerusalem, and we will walk in His paths, Jesus the way and the waymaker, and Holy Spirit will teach, instruct, guide, and write the law of God on the fleshly tables of our hearts.

God has given eternal covenant to the Jewish people. Jesus, Yeshua, Son of God, is divine in that God, Creator of the Universe has given all people, all nations, and therefore is the Father of all who would believe, yet Mary, the one God chose to give birth to Messiah, is of the lineage of the House of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, from the house of David, making Yeshua, fulfillment of the covenant to the house of Israel, Messiah, Savior to all who would believe…
Do you have it in your heart to return to Israel? This is heaven tugging at your heartstrings, for these words, written thousands of years ago, must come to pass, for God is Holy. He cannot lie. When He has spoken, it must come to pass!

Let’s pray:
‘Father, next year in Jerusalem! Jesus, make a way for me, my family, my church to celebrate You in praise, adoration, and thanksgiving, in the land you call home. Amen!’

As I read my Bible I read:

Jesus? Are you the Messiah to the Jewish people?

John 10: 24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.

Interesting conversation here: Modern day paraphrase. “Jesus, are you really the awaited Messiah? Tell us straight up!”

“Yes, I am, I have already told you that I am the Messiah, but you refuse to believe what I have told you. If you will not believe what I am telling you, everywhere I go, my Father uses me to do mighty miracles to bear witness of who I am. If you will not believe what I say, believe the miracles!”

Bottom line: Jesus, God the Son, is the Messiah! We who were not born Jewish, have the incredible privilege of coming into relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, only because of the great mercy of Jesus. This should humble us, and make us wonderfully grateful today. I am so grateful to know God, personally, intimately, today! Thank you Jesus!

Today begins the Jewish feast of Purim:http://www.christiantoday.com/article/purim.2016.all.you.need.to.know.about.the.jewish.festival/82529.htm

Chris Karen Walsh's photo.Some of us seem to forget that Jesus is Jewish, the Messiah first to the Jew, and Israel is His homeland that He shall never forget, nor ever stop loving.

Rom 11:15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

This is the promise that Christians and Jews alike, long to be fulfilled. God has a covenant with Israel that He is going to keep, and fulfill.

They are waiting for their Messiah to be revealed, whereas we, as Christians have been grafted into the covenant, to join those who have received Jesus, as the ‘Israel of God’.

And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

To the Jew, receiving Yeshua, does not deny Judaism, rather completes it, making them not less Jewish, rather, ‘a completed Jew’, for the promises and covenants are ‘first to the Jew, then to the Gentile’.

To the gentile, or the rest of the world, we are grafted in, with the same covenant rights as the Jew, not as a replacement, but as a complement to the family of God, beggar’s who have been brought to the table, not as slaves, but adopted as sons and daughters.

Jesus, Yeshua, is Jewish, so any Christian, who truly knows Him, will love Israel, and long for Jerusalem, God’s city, the capital of the earth.

Yet, to Jew and Gentile alike, there is no other way to heaven, He is the way, the truth and the life, and the only mediator between God and man.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Only because they sinned, and rejected Jesus when He came to the earth, have we been brought back into relationship with God, yet I love this verse: If rejecting Him allowed us into relationship with God, how much more glorious will their reconciliation be?

Romans 11:15  For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall
the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

So, we love Israel, and the Jewish people, though many of them do not understand, nor accept us, we will love and support them, praying that their eyes be opened to Yeshua, the King of the Universe, Messiah.

Let’s pray:
‘Father, I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and your blessing and protection upon Israel. For every Jew on the face of the planet, that has not yet received Yeshua, as their Messiah yet, I pray. For every misguided, anti-Semitic Christian I also pray, you open their eyes, to the truth of your love for Israel, and Jerusalem, your city, the city of the great king. In your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen”
