Think on this: “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place. “Yahweh will save the dwellings of Judah first, so that the honor of the house of David and of Jerusalem’s inhabitants may not be greater than that of Judah. On that day Yahweh will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of Yahweh going before them. On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.” (Zechariah: 12:6-9)
Pray on this: Father, as we pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we know we are actually praying for the coming of the Messiah. We also know there are other things that must transpire before He comes — including the defeat of all Israel’s enemies. Help us Father to always be watchful and in prevailing prayer that we may have the power to excape all that is about to happen and to stand before the Son of Man. Halleluyah, AMEN!
