Proof of Purchase 002
Shalom, this is Yuval Shomron with another Prophetic
Proof of Purchase. God has given the land
of Israel to his chosen
people. He foresaw their disobedience,
but pre-determined a plan of grace.
Let’s take a look at JER 31:1-4, "At that time,"
declares the Lord, "I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they
shall be My people." Thus says the Lord, "The people who
survived the sword Found grace in the wilderness-- Israel, when it
went to find its rest." The Lord
appeared to him from afar, saying, "I have loved you with an everlasting
love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. "Again I will build you, and you shall
be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! Again
you shall take up your tambourines, And go forth to
the dances of the merrymakers.”
Well first of
all, Rome wasn’t
built in a day, and neither will be the new nation of Israel’s
faithfulness. Today, about 60% of
Israeli families consider themselves secular.
However, that doesn’t mean they don’t believe in God. It only means they don’t consider themselves
religious. In spite of this, about 90%
of them will show up in Synagogue on Yom Kippur. This is like many Americans who show up in
church only on Christmas and Easter. It
proves there is an underlying fear of God somewhere in the society.
Christians, most Jews are not looking for religion. They are praying for mercy. There are many scriptures which make a
connection between returning to the land of Israel, and
returning to God.
without the land of Israel, the Jews
would be lost. God spoke of “The people
who survived the sword”, knowing of the horrible pogroms and Holocaust which
His people would face in the Diaspora.
for the people of Israel is to
bring them into a place of rest and joy, and in spite of their continuing
troubles, it is just such a place.
God has loved
His chosen people with an everlasting love.
Without His grace, they would be lost.
grace, so would we all.
This is Yuval Shomron in Jerusalem.
