#4 Around the World – Come Home

Posted by Cinda On March - 28 - 2013

prophetSo far on this journey, we have gone back to the womb in an effort to find our way back home. We have discovered that the Most High God had a plan and a purpose for the nation of Israel, it’s people and its land.

That purpose was, according to Isaiah, a prophet of God’s people (I’m defining a prophet as one who hears from God and speaks for God to His people at a given time in history), “And now says the LORD,  who formed Me from the womb  to be His Servant, to bring Jacob (Israel) back to Him, so that Israel might be gathered to Him… to make You a light of the nations so that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth… I will keep You and give You for a covenant of the people, to restore the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritages… For the LORD has comforted His people and will have compassion on His afflicted.” (emphasis mine Isaiah 49:5ff)

Well, the LORD has much to say about His plan of redemption, using Israel to bring forth His Messiah, the One Anointed to bring this reconciliation. You can continue reading in Isaiah (asking God to reveal His truth to you), but for our purposes today:

“Let us fear the LORD, trust in His name, and rely on His salvation. Oh, Israel, oh, Jacob, oh nations, return to the LORD, come to His light and be saved as was God’s plan from ages past. Amen.”

Remember to …  “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!” Psalm 122:6
