Think on this: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves… On that day the leaders of Judah will say in their hearts,’The people of Jerusalem are strong, because Yahweh Almighty is their God. On that day I will make the leaders of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume right and left all the surrounding peoples, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.” (Zechariah 12:2-3, 5-6)
Pray on this: Gracious Father, grant your people the insight and discernment to see what you are really doing in Israel and among the Jews. Don’t let the media direct our actions. Grant us wisdom to appropriate your protective grace in the dark days ahead. In Jesus name. AMEN!
