2023 – Fulfilment of Davidic Covenant?
Shalom Partner and Friend of Israel,
Firstly, let’s be encouraged this year – 2023 as we stand upon the gratitude and faithfulness of a loving God our ABBA Father and His protection in a painful world. Psalm 23 was written by King David who grew up tending sheep like his earthly father - also a Shepherd. In this Psalm, David expresses in a song his great confidence and delight of the constant protection and provision of his/our loving Heavenly ABBA - Father. David expressed confidence and trust in the Lord by portraying God as the "Good Shepherd" and himself a "sheep." A characteristic of sheep is that they like to wander from the fold and the shepherd will sometimes have to climb steep mountain slopes in an effort to save them.
Yeshua (Jesus) said in Luke 15:4-5; "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders." God is a good "Shepherd" who both guides and blesses …and His goodness means that we as believers have NOTHNG to fear no matter whatever happens in 2023 - God will be with us! In Isaiah 40:11, it also gives the reassurance of God’s constant care and protection of His children as it states; "He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young." God WILL always gently shepherd His children amidst the attacks that we may encounter daily.
The Biblical Year 5783 is a JUBILEE Year while 2023 is the 23rd year of the 21st century… and Bible passages mentioning "the 23rd year" point in the direction of; "returning to God" OR reaping the consequences of failing to return to God. What changes can the Body of Christ expect in 5783 - 2023? So much has happened over the past 3-Years and as believers we need to stay connected. We need to stay focused in these Last Days as we also believe things are going to get more intense! "At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people - everyone whose name is found written in the book WILL be delivered."- Daniel 12:1.
No one knows the day or hour of Yeshua’ (Jesus) Return (Matthew 24:36). However, a convergence of Biblical "SIGNS" and "TIMELINES" suggests it is near! To escape the judgment reserved for a God-rejecting world, one must be in a saving relationship with Christ!
ONE of the remarkable things about Bible Prophecy is that a single verse may have multiple fulfilments, or layers of meaning. With this in mind, it is fascinating to consider some Prophetic "Timelines" in Daniel 12 - also known as the Prophecy of the End-time or Last Days. Why 2023 could be Prophetically significant? The first "Timeline" to consider is found in Daniel 12:11; "From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days." The interpretation of the 1,290 days is that they are literal 24-hour days, counted from when the "DAILY SACRIFICE" is taken away by the Antichrist at the midpoint of the Tribulation. BUT because "a day may represent a year" of actual time in Bible Prophecy, it is interesting to count 1,290-Years from a past taking away of the "daily sacrifice." (The Biblical day-equals-a-year principle is found throughout Scripture; Daniel 9:24–27; Genesis. 29:27; Numbers. 14:34; Ezekiel. 4:5-6).
In Daniel’s time - "the daily sacrifice" was interrupted 3 times by the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar: (1) In 606–05 BC, when Nebuchadnezzar invaded Jerusalem and deported many Hebrews, including Daniel, to Babylon. (2) In 599–97 BC, when Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Jerusalem, captured King Jehoiachin, and carried off some of the Temple’s vessels to Babylon (2 Chronicles 36:5–10). (3) In 586 BC, when Nebuchadnezzar burned the Temple and carried off all its treasures to Babylon (2 Chronicles 36:17–19). Daniel tells us to count 1,290 (days or years) from when the "daily sacrifice" is taken away.
So, let’s do the math… Counting 1,290 years from the 1st interruption of the "daily sacrifice" (606–05 BC), we arrive at 685–86 AD, the year construction BEGAN on the Dome of the Rock, the famous " gold-domed Islamic shrine" - that stands on the Temple Mount (Mount Moriah) in Jerusalem. Counting 1,290 years from the 2nd interruption of the "daily sacrifice" (599–97 BC), we arrive at 692–93 AD, the year the Dome of the Rock was COMPLETED. And, counting 1,290 ‘Prophetic’ (360-day) years from the 3rd interruption of the "daily sacrifice" (586 BC), we arrive at 688AD the MIDPOINT of the Dome of the Rock’s construction. 688 AD is the single date most commonly associated with the Islamic structure …and is the end date that correlates to the ultimate taking away of the "daily sacrifice" when the Temple was destroyed; 586–85 BC + 1,290 Prophetic years = 688 AD. The Gregorian year 688 AD correlates to the Biblical Year – 4448 pointing mysteriously to the year 1948 rebirth of Israel after 2,000 years.
Notice that in all 3 instances; the 1,290 years END at the "setting up" of the Dome of the Rock structure on the Temple Mount, fulfilling Daniel’s words; "From the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination that causes desolation set up, there shall be 1,290 days." – Daniel 12:11. So, this makes us aware to the fact that the Islamic Al-Aqsa Mosque was built in 705AD on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and built exactly 1,290 years after the 1st Temple (Solomon’s) of the Jews was destroyed in 586 BC - being another fulfilment of Daniel 12:11.
The next Prophetic Timeline to consider is found in Daniel 12:7… Here, when the "man clothed in linen" is asked "how long will it be to the END" - He answers; "It shall be for a time, times, and half (1,260 days); and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished." (Note: Daniel 12:7 and Revelation 10:5-7 both describe the same events). According to the man clothed in linen (a pre-incarnate Yeshua/Jesus), "…the end" will come after 1,260 days, when God has finished scattering the holy people." Here is the amazing thing: Counting 1,260-Years from when the Dome of the Rock was set up in 688AD then we arrive at 1948 - the year the scattering of the Jews was ended. It is the return of the Jews to the Land in this FINAL generation (1948 and 1967) that has allowed us to determine the times we living in; "And he said, go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end" - Daniel 12:9.
Therefore, the 1,260-Years counted from the setting up of the Islamic Gold Dome Shrine that has stood for more than a 1000-Years as "a symbol of the Jewish dispersion" marked the END of the dispersion …and the BEGINNING of the End times as foretold in Matthew 24:32–34. The Dome of the Rock is NOT the only "abomination" that has stood on Mount Moriah - the Temple Mount since the late 7th Century. A second Islamic structure, a silver-domed Al-Aqsa Mosque has stood at the outer edge of the Temple Mount area since it was originally laid down and consecrated by Caliph Omar in 693 AD. The Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa together comprise what Muslims call "the Noble Sanctuary," their 3rd holiest site in Islam.
Yet another of Daniel’s Weeks Prophecy corroborates possibility of 2023 as endpoint. Notice here that Daniel 9:25 mentions Jerusalem’s wall being rebuilt; "From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the prince comes, there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall." Jerusalem’s wall was ordered re-built by Islamic ruler Suleiman in 1536–37 AD. Counting; 7 and 62 weeks = 483 years from the start of the Sabbatical week following Suleiman’s order to re-build, 1539–40 AD, we arrive at 2022–2023.
Finally, Daniel’s End-times Prophecy contains the ultimate Timeline… "Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days" - Daniel 12:12. The standard interpretation of the 1,335 days is that they are literal 24-hour days, concluding at an unspecified "blessed" event AFTER the Tribulation. However, because a day may also represent a year, it is reasonable to count 1,335-Years from our previously established starting point, the Dome of the Rock: 688 AD + 1,335 Years = 2023. That the 1,335-Years conclude at 2023 is significant for two reasons. Firstly, 2023 marks the beginning of a new 7-Year Sabbatical week (Jubilee), a likely time for the 7-Year Tribulation to begin? Incidentally, there are 191 Sabbatical weeks between the construction of the Dome of the Rock (685–86 AD) and the potential start of the Tribulation week in 2022–23. The number 191 reads forward and backward as "19." The number 19 denotes God's perfect order concerning His judgment in Scripture:
Secondly, an entirely separate Prophetic Timeline, found in an earlier chapter of the Book of Daniel, points to 2023… Daniel says; "blessed" are those who wait for and reach the END of the 1,335-Days! Could the end of 1,335-Years …counted from the Dome of the Rock, see the "blessed hope," the Rapture–Resurrection of believing Jews and Gentiles that will usher in the Tribulation? Time will surely tell! "I am God … declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are NOT yet done" - Isaiah 46:9-10.
As we examine further examples from the Bible what 2023 being 23rd year on the Gregorian Calendar could be significant and reason why we should take note… We read in: 2 Kings 12:1-10 that Jehoash became king of Judah in the 7th Year of king Jehu of Israel’s rule. He was blessed to rule for 40-Years over the people of Judah. The young king was taught from a young age about the LORD, from a priest of the LORD. He was well versed in what was good and right, and he performed much of it. One of the kings’ desires was that the Levites repair the Temple of the LORD …and well into his twenty-third (23rd) year, the repairs on the Temple still were NOT done. Finally, the Temple of God was repaired under godly leadership. "The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me: 'He who rules over men must be just, Ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, Like the tender grass springing out of the earth, by clear shining after rain." - 2 Samuel 23:3-4.
Jehoash’s days were good, UNTIL some men in his cabinet or administration decided to conspire against him, and had him killed. The details are all found in the Book of the Kings - of Judah and so his son, Amaziah, who took over the throne in his place. The 23rd year is “a season of action” and “a time of awakening” for true believers in Yeshua (Jesus) to stay connected to God in 2023 since our bodies are the “temples of the Holy Spirit of God!”
As we continue to 2 Kings 13:1-3 we see that King Jehoahaz of Samaria (Israel) ruled for 17-Years and began in the twenty-third (23rd) year of King Joash’s reign in Judah. Jehoahaz was NOT righteous before the LORD. Instead, he followed in the footsteps of Jeroboam (who was credited for making Israel sin) and because of his evil nature, the LORD made him and Israel subject to Hazael, the king of Syria, as well as to his son - all of their days. Nevertheless, Jehoahaz did pray to God for relief …and God listened! Change in the 23rd Year should be one that advances the will of God and honours Him …otherwise, judgment could surely follow!
However, as we read further in 2 Kings Chapter 13 it then transitions to Elisha the great Prophet of God from Samaria, had fallen sick. The king of Samaria had come to visit Elisha, and was told (by Elisha) that he would defeat Syria. BUT, he would NOT do as well as he could have had if he had more confidence and zeal. Elisha eventually died from his illness and was buried. Some Prophet of God, Elisha was, that when the Moabites attacked Samaria, a dead man was being buried in the same grave of Elisha. However, when the man’s corpse touched Elisha’s, he came back to life! The chapter ends with Syria’s oppression of Israel - BUT the LORD was compassionate with Israel! WHY? Because of the Covenant the LORD had made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jehoash was able to defeat Benhadad (Hazael’s son) 3-times to recover the Cities Syria had taken from Israel. This was according to Elisha’s Prophecy and all Glory to the ALMIGHTY YAHWEH – GOD for the victory! God is a Covenant keeping God!
Let’s look further at some more examples of the 23rd Year… We read in Jeremiah 25:1-11 that the Prophet Jeremiah had preached to the people of Judah a word from God that they should repent from their evil ways and idolatry - for 22-Years (from the 13th-Year of Josiah's reign) …BUT there was NO change in the people as they would NOT listen (much like the people today)! They had provoked God to anger with their unfaithfulness and works of their hands and so by the 23rd-Year of his ministry, he announced that a 70-year Babylonian Captivity was on the way. This happened on the 587BC! In Jeremiah 52:28-30 the last batch of captives that went to Babylon from Judah (745 people) were taken in the 23rd-Year of Nebuchadnezzar. Judah also fell to Babylon in the season of the 23rd king (Zedekiah), counting from Saul. In the 23rd Book of the Bible – Isaiah; God called heaven and earth to witness against man (Isaiah 1:2).
So, by using the Gregorian Calendar and the year 2023 for Bible Scriptures relating to the 23rd Year we can learn the following; Our world today is fighting an enemy! That “old serpent” - Satan who is the enemy using the wicked extremely wealthy (so-called Elites), Media and the corrupt greedy World Leaders to destroy and weaken the Nations; “You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.” – Isaiah 14:12-15. In Genesis 23, Abraham was attacked through the death of Sarah. In 2 Samuel 23, Saul wanted to eliminate David. People were ready to betray David. Josiah died in a battle he shouldn't have fought in 2 Kings 23. The spirit of death rose against Hezekiah (Isaiah 38:1) …in Isaiah the 23rd book of the Bible. In Luke 23 the religious leaders of the Jews moved for the Crucifixion of Yeshua (Jesus). In Acts 23, the Jews wanted to kill Paul.
Did you know that on the 6th November, 2011 a snake appeared on the Western Wall in Jerusalem? This had NEVER happened before! Thinking back certainly this could have been a WARNING for Israel and the entire world of what was to come in 2020! You see, what happens in Israel - the epicentre of the world …WILL happen in the Nations. Today we believe that it was a “sign” of things to come of the W.E.F. and W.H.O plannedemic of Covid-19! Israeli’s saw the snake on the Western Wall (which is a Holy Site to Jews) as an “omen.” Well certainly, God’s Land and people, Israel suffered greatly in the plannedemic …BUT so did ALL the Nations! It’s NOT coincidence that in modern times the World Health Org, Medical and Pharmacy’s all use the symbol of “a serpent on the pole.” We know as believers that in the end our Lord WILL finally “crush the head of the serpent!” In the end we WIN!
So much has happened since 11th March 2020 as we have ALL seen and witnessed! Freedoms are slowly being taken away and if anyone goes against the Globalists (so-called Elites) “status quo” or “plans which are from the pits of hell” …then they will go to any length to fight against and stop TRUTH as well as freedom of speech. In the year ahead - 2023 as believers, standing upon God’s Word, we WILL need to be “equipped” to fight the BETRAYAL culture that is now rising in ALL the nations!
Now let’s look at God’s amazing FAITHFULNESS as a Covenant keeping God… The 4th Major Covenant God made with Israel is the one He made with King David to establish his dynasty FOREVER and is known as “The Davidic Covenant.” “When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come forth from your body, and I will establish His Kingdom (Yeshua/Jesus). He shall build a house for My Name, and I will establish the throne of His kingdom forever. I will be His Father, and He shall be My Son... And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me, your throne shall be established forever.” - 2 Samuel 7:12-14,16.
God in His marvellous fore-knowledge gives David a Prophecy of how the Messiah will come from him. God makes a promise to establish the throne through Solomon and to preserve Solomon’s throne – but NOT his seed! The Messiah would be a descendant of David but NOT through Solomon. Yeshua (Jesus) was the fulfilment of this seemingly impossible promise in that through Mary, Yeshua was a descendant of Nathan, the son of David, and through his stepfather Joseph, who was a descendant of Solomon, David’s heir, Yeshua has the legal right to the throne of David and thus the writing over His Cross, of Calvary was TRUE; “This is Jesus of Nazareth the king of the Jews!”
What is even more amazing is that the Davidic Covenant introduces elements of God’s FUTURE (End-time) plan that we don’t see in the other Covenants. It reveals His plan to bring “a golden age” to Israel and to the entire world …which Yeshua (Jesus) calls “The Kingdom of God.”
So, we see read again the promise towards the end of David’s life 970 BC… God spoke to Nathan, the Prophet in a vision and gave him a message for King David… promising that ONE of his descendants’ would inherit his throne and that His Kingdom would endure FOREVER; Here we read the same promise again in; 1 Chronicles 17:11-14; .”And it shall be, when your days are fulfilled, when you must go to be with your fathers, that I will set up your seed after you, who will be of your sons; and I will establish His (Yeshua/Jesus) Kingdom. He shall build Me a house, and I will establish His throne forever. I will be His Father, and He shall be My Son; and I will not take My mercy away from Him, as I took it from Him who was before you. And I will establish Him in My House and in My Kingdom forever; and His Throne shall be established forever.”
And again, in Psalm 89 this promise is repeated and is described as “a Covenant;” “I have exalted one chosen from the people I have found my servant David; with my holy oil I have anointed him, with whom My hand shall be established... My faithfulness and My Mercy shall be with him…. Also, I will make Him (Yeshua/Jesus) My first born, the highest of the kings of the earth. My mercy I will keep for Him forever, And My COVENANT shall stand firm with His seed also I will make to endure forever, and His throne as the days of Heaven... Once I have sworn by My Holiness; I will not lie to David His seed shall endure forever, and His Throne as the sun before Me.” - Psalm 89:20-21; 24-29; 35-37. These Prophetic words are also repeated and amplified in several of the Psalms and in the writings of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Zechariah and Isaiah.
Today Israel is without a king as Christ is NOT yet ruling on the throne of David…. In the future Israel WILL return and seek the Lord. At that time, they will NOT be without a King. Their King will be on David's throne in Jerusalem; “In that day will I (God) raise up the TABERNACLE OF DAVID that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by My Name, said the LORD that doeth this. Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that the ploughman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that sows seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of My people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, said the LORD thy God" - Amos 9:11-15.
God has kept His promise to re-gather His people back to their land. This happened in 1948 after thousands of years of exile… “Surely, I (God) will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; … “David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; … and My servant David shall be their prince forever." - Ezekiel 37:21-23; 24-25. We can see from these two passages that there are 4 main elements to the Davidic Covenant: (1) The restoration of the throne of David. Through this Covenant, God formally promises and guarantees “to restore” the “Throne of David,” and makes a solemn promise with David that his throne would endure FOREVER. Though the Prophets foresaw and foretold the collapse of the ‘House of David,’ they also foresaw its restoration! This Covenant guarantees its restoration! Just as the Covenant with Abraham guaranteed the RESTORATION of the people of Israel to their land (Jeremiah 31:10; Ezekiel 21:26-27) the Covenant with David guarantees the RESTORATION of the house and throne of David in their land.
(2) The promise that ONE specific descendant of David WILL be the permanent occupant of the Throne of David. This, NO doubt, has a double fulfilment NOT only in David, …but also in that “Seed” that should come from David that will Rule as “King of kings and Lord of lords,” even a Prophecy of Yeshua - Jesus Christ. (3) Jerusalem will be the centre of Christ’s Rule. (4) The Anointed King will be “the Highest of ALL the kings of the earth.” The last descendant of David to sit on the throne of David in Jerusalem was Zedekiah but he was deposed from office in the year 587BC. by the Babylonians. The rule of the House of David over Judah came to an end and has NEVER since been restored fully... BUT IT WILL BE- SOON by Yeshua (Jesus) and God’s Eternal Promise!
In the Davidic Covenant, King David is promised that ONE specific SON will be his heir and will become the Highest of the Kings of the earth. This “Anointed Son” of David is referred to as; “The Messiah” or “The Anointed One” and He is Yeshua Ha’Mashiach; “But My Faithfulness and My Mercy shall be with Him: and in My Name shall His horn be exalted.” Psalms 89:22-24. A “horn” is a symbol of “strength” and so the Name of the Lord WILL be His strength. “And My COVENANT shall stand firm with His seed also I (God) will make to endure forever, and His throne as the days of Heaven.” -. Psalm 89.28. Here we are told that NOT only will the Throne of David’s greater Son endure forever, but He is the ONE particular King who WILL reign on it forever. The Messiah King WILL reign over the House of David FOREVER.
And, again the promise of ONE particular Anointed King (Messiah) becoming the permanent King of Israel, was repeated and reinforced by the Angel Gabriel who visited Mary of Nazareth… She was promised that she was to conceive a son who would “reign over the house of Jacob FOREVER; “Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His Kingdom there will be NO end.” - Luke 1:31-34. According to the Prophecies and God’s Promises that make up the Davidic Covenant ONE singular Leader WILL restore the “Throne of David.” And, He will reign over the house of Jacob forever and His Kingdom will NEVER end; “Thus says the LORD: ‘I will return to Zion, And dwell in the MIDST of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of the LORD of Hosts, the Holy Mountain.’” - Zechariah 8.3.
Yes, there WILL be 3rd Temple built on the Temple Mount but it will be where the Antichrist will reign from… Revelation 11:1-2 tells us that in the Last Days (the days just prior to Yeshua’ (Jesus) return to establish His Kingdom)—Israel will be back in the land, they will once again be in possession of Jerusalem and the Temple will be rebuilt, and sacrifices will again be offered to God by religious Jews Daniel 9:27 says that the Antichrist will cause the sacrifices and offerings to cease therefore implying a re-built 3rd Temple in Jerusalem.
it’s so exciting! Yeshua - Jesus Christ - the Messiah WILL soon return and this WILL be to claim the Throne of David and restore His Kingdom and WILL reign from Jerusalem… Zechariah also supports these words in predicting that the Messiah WILL inaugurate His Rule by coming to the Mount of Olives in great power and authority; "Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. Thus, the Lord my God will come, And ALL the Saints with You. And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be - "The Lord is ONE," And His Name ONE." - Zechariah 8:3-4; 8-9. The Davidic Covenant promises that the Rule of the Messiah WILL be centred in Jerusalem as we have seen BUT it will also extend to the whole earth! This introduces a whole NEW scale to the Rule of the Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus). The Davidic Covenant promises NOT just a "Golden Age" of "Peace and Prosperity" for Israel BUT it also promises a "Golden Age" for ALL the nations. For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so, all Israel will be saved! - Romans 11:25.
Today we are seeing a pathway being set towards the godless Globalists having total control… They want control over everything we do or even say or how we should live our lives, what we should eat …and even whether we can travel or how far we can travel the earth our Lord has freely given us. But we must NOT lose FAITH or even doubt for a moment that God has lost control. In fact, He is aware of everything! What does that mean for us? We have all desired revival and fervently prayed for it, and more than ever we want to see the wicked brought to justice for their "Crimes Against Humanity" and we want to see this happen quickly! It is happening in many places; however, we are in a WAR with Satan who has the wicked doing his bidding and as lawlessness increases, the Word of God WILL be vital to keep our love from growing cold.
The godless and their failed and corrupt, wicked systems of human government WILL soon be replaced by the incorruptible Rule of the Messiah!
The Davidic Covenant promises a “Triumphant Glorious Ruler” who brings in a NEW World Order BUT this time NOT under wickedness of the Globalist (so-called wealthy Elite) BUT under the rule of Christ’s Righteousness and Shalom - Peace that presents a glorious plan and sure promise to lift ALL nations from oppression and for God’s wonderful future for mankind. This plan is inherently connected with the vision of the Prophets of old … the destiny and calling of the Jewish people …and the RESTORATION to Jerusalem. Because of this Covenant we know that God has a plan and purposes for world history. God’s plan is NOT only a plan for our personal salvation but to redeem Israel and ALL the Nations.
Truly, we look earnestly forward to the soon, Harpazo – Rapture of the Church …the New Jerusalem - Millennium Reign of Christ our Messiah (which happens after the 7-Year Tribulation) at His Second Coming of our Lord and Saviour when ALL Israel will be saved. Maranatha Lord!
God’s Word is true! He IS watching to see how the nations are treating His people – Israel. God will have mercy on Israel through Gentile believers acting as mediators towards them! This is one of the most amazing revelations ever given to the Church – an opportunity to do something that carries the highest priority in the heart of God. Yet, sadly, so few have seen the potential and the rewards of serving God in this manner - as agents of mercy to Israel and the Jewish people! Israel was and still is despised today and a despised nation continually turning away from God BUT nothing ever altered the purpose of God for that nation. The despised element is always a noticeable element in the purpose of God. When the Saviour of the world came, He came of that despised nation; like Israel… He Himself was; “despised and rejected by men,” …and there is that despised element; “…things that are despised God has chosen,” 1 Corinthians 1:28. Now, more than at any time is the time to support Israel and the Jewish people - the Lord’s Brethren! We are witnessing the nations and people turning their backs on Israel. Thank you for your prayers and generous financial support especially during these very difficult times. With “lockdown” and difficult “recovery” still lying ahead we ARE reminded that the Wuhan Corona Virus has caused many dire needs and continue to increase here in Israel upon the already most vulnerable! Once again – Thank you!
We hope that you enjoy and become more informed by our work. We serve an awesome God and we are humbled by this opportunity to bring you this information. With Shalom to you and your family always,
