God’s Promises Will Come to Pass Promises of God for IsraelIn a recent letter, I described our ministries among hundreds of thousands of poor Jewish immigrants, mostly from Eastern Europe. I mentioned that during our recent trip to Israel I spoke to a group of elderly Holocaust survivors at a luncheon we sponsored in Sderot, the little town next to Gaza that suffered thousands of missile attacks over the last few years.

I explained to these dear people, from Deuteronomy chapter 30, that one of the greatest proofs of the existence of God and the truth of His Word is the establishment of the modern State of Israel, and the fact that the Lord enabled them to survive the Holocaust and return to the Land of promise! Moses spoke this prophecy just before the Israelites entered the Land of Israel:

…that the LORD your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the LORD your God has scattered you. If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. Then the LORD your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. (Deuteronomy 30:3-5)

Moses predicted that the Jewish people would go through a time of judgment and dispersion when they would live outside the Land of Israel, but that the Lord who gave them the Land would eventually bring them back! We have seen this prophecy come to pass. The Assyrians drove the Jewish people of the Northern Kingdom from the Holy Land in 722 BC. The Babylonians invaded the Southern Kingdom in 586 BC and took most of the population into captivity. After 70 years, a remnant of Jewish people returned to Israel under the leadership of Ezra and Nehemiah. The Greeks then tried to destroy the Jews by destroying our religion and culture, but failed. However, my people soon found themselves under another Gentile taskmaster—Rome—and we were once again cast out of the Land of Israel after the crushing of Jewish revolts in both 70 and 132-135 AD.

With the Temple destroyed and Jews scattered throughout the Diaspora, the Romans turned Jerusalem into a pagan city. Thus began a long and difficult captivity for God’s chosen people, scattered across Gentile nations from one end of the earth to the other.

But this is not the end of the story! After almost two thousand years of dispersion, the hope for the restoration of Israel was fulfilled on November 29, 1947, when the United Nations declared that the nation of Israel was now a sovereign Jewish State. This was the final step that had begun with the Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917 and was further affirmed by the League of Nations. Here is an excerpt from that historic resolution:

Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have agreed, for the purpose of giving effect to the provisions of Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, to entrust to a Mandatory selected by the said Powers the administration of the territory of Palestine, which formerly belonged to the Turkish Empire, within such boundaries as may be fixed by them; and

Whereas the Principal Allied Powers have also agreed that the Mandatory should be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on November 2nd, 1917, by the Government of His Britannic Majesty, and adopted by the said Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country; and

Whereas recognition has thereby been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country… (see the full text at www.mfa.gov.il)

On May 14, 1948, the modern Jewish State was born! In the words of the founding fathers of modern Israel,

Placing our trust in the “Rock of Israel,” we affix our signatures to this proclamation at this session of the Provisional Council of State, on this soil of the homeland, in the city of Tel-Aviv, on this Sabbath Eve the 5th day of Iyar, 5708. (14th May, 1948; www.mfa.gov.il)

We rejoice in the way the Lord brought His people back to their Land. But this is still not the end of the story—Moses also promised that the Jewish people would repent and be restored in their relationship to God:

And the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live. Also the LORD your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you (Deut. 30:6-7; emphasis mine).

The Next Steps I believe this is the next step in God’s plan for the Jewish people—that His chosen people will return to Him by embracing Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah! This is why the focus of your Mission to the Jewish People has been and always will be the preaching of the Gospel to Jewish people.

I see the events of the 70 years since the establishment of modern Israel as God’s way of accomplishing His holy purposes—but the work is far from done! This is why Chosen People Ministries has a growing and active work among Jewish people in eighteen countries, but especially in Israel today. There are now almost 6.5 million Jewish people living in the Land, and we know that it is our calling to reach them—and Jewish people everywhere—for Jesus, that all the promises of God might be fulfilled!

The promises about the Land and the spiritual promises will one day converge!

Paul writes about the destiny of the Jewish people:

Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? (Rom. 11:12-15)

This great day is coming—and the presence of the Jewish people in the Holy Land today is simply one sign that God’s plan is in progress!

I hope that you will pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May the Lord give our leaders and the leaders of Israel great wisdom and discernment.

Your brother,

Mitch

#1. To: Deckard (#0)

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

#2. To: All (#1)

1The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. 5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

6In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. 7The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. 8In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. 9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Mourning the One they Pierced

(John 19:31-37)

10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. 11In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. 12And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart; 13The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart; 14All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.
