It’s a new day and what better way than to start it in God’s Word! My spirit was rejuvenated within me when I did the series on the Rapture and the Tribulation period. The desire to tell others became even more urgent. We mustn’t take our responsibility to spread the Gospel lightly. What excites you, Reader? Is it the latest iPhone release? Is it the new job? Jesus told us to go into all the world (Mark 16:15) and we should be excited to share something as wonderful as this! We may not be able to go into all the world, but we can reach out to those in our circle. If you’re into social media, use it to God’s glory! If you’re in the grocery store, ask the Holy Spirit to put someone in your path. There are many ways to share the Good News! Who knows if the Lord will place a Jew in your life and you are given the privilege of showing them who Messiah truly is! How exciting!!!
It’s hard for me to comprehend to what extent the devil has gone to get rid of the Jewish people. If you look throughout history, you see the devil’s work in trying to accomplish just that. On a side note, if you have not read the book: “Lily’s Promise: How I Survived Auschwitz and Found the Strength to Live” by Lily Ebert and Dov Forman, do so. It’s heart wrenching to read about man’s inhumanity to man but when one recognizes that it’s been Satan’s plan, it makes one’s blood boil. I guess since the devil could not stop the resurrection of Christ, he’s now bent on getting rid of Israel during the upcoming Tribulation. But just wait, I’ve read the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ wins in the end! 😀
Today’s verse is a promise to Abraham that through his seed, ALL the families of the earth will be blessed, not just Israel. No one else is able to fulfill this promise but Jesus.
If only the Jews and Israel were to be saved, John 3:16 would read quite differently. Also, Peter gave a wonderful speech at Solomon’s porch where he clearly laid out that Jesus was their Messiah:
The Book of Acts reflects how the Church was first started. It began with born again Jews, friend! When the Apostles were gathered together by Jesus for His mission, He was their Rabbi. He taught in the synagogue and read from the Old Testament Scriptures. He didn’t have the New Testament as we have today. Right before Jesus ascended, He told them to be witnesses unto Him, first in their city, then the next city, then to those who were not true Jews, and then to the uttermost parts of the world (the Gentiles). Jesus gave them a plan to grow the Church! (Acts 1:8) Jesus said in John 14:12 that they would do greater works than He did! Jesus ministered to the Jews but the Apostles would bring salvation to the Gentiles! Praise God!! \o/
So the prophecy of Genesis 12:3 is fulfilled by the One and Only Saviour of mankind, our Lord Jesus Christ! Do you know Him personally or do you only know of Him? I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
