6 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores his people,
let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad! Psalm 53:6
Fortunately for Israel and for us, Salvation did come out of Zion – Jesus Christ.
As I post here often, the nation of Israel is in the midst of some very interesting times. As the few democracies in the Middle East, their freedoms are threatened regularly by terrorist groups around the world. The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, ties it all to Iran.
Iran itself is in the midst of cultural chaos as more and more people find freedom. The Government would love to see Israel destroyed, but many of the people are tired of the hatred and violence. The Green Revolution of 2009-2010 gave many Iranians a taste of freedom.
Pray for Iran. There are many people seeking the truth there. Pray that they will find it. Pray also for the thousands if not millions of believers there. They are forbidden for evangelizing, and many are thrown into prison.
Pray also for the Peace of Jerusalem. Pray that the word of God would penetrate the hearts of minds of those seeking to know the truth.
