Morning devotion: Read Psalm 83

Psalms 83:1  ¶<<A Song or Psalm of Asaph.>> Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2  For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3  They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

Psalms 83:15  So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. 16  Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD. 17  Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18  That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

Israel is the epicenter of the world today. Much of what is happening politically is centered on Israel and their demise. The United Nations, in their assemblies, make laws against Israel. Most of Europe is against Israel. The Democratic party of the United States is against Israel. While rockets are being fired into Israel on a daily basis, when Israel retaliates, they are considered the enemy. The Eastern nations such as Russia and India are against Israel. China is against Israel. Why? Israel is the chosen people of God.

Psalms 122:6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Do you realize, that God is blesses those who blesses Israel? Genesis 12:3  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Do you realize, one day all the world, (in the millennium) will worship the Lord Jesus Christ together with Israel?  

Zechariah 8:22  Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.  23  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

Micah 4:1 ¶ But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.  2  And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Why not start now? Why not trust in the Lord Jesus now? Why wait until the last minute, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ now, before it is too late?

God will win, Israel and the Christian will remain. Heaven will be our home and the new city will be established and though sad to say, those who are against it all will not be there.

The choice is still yours,
