June 13: Jacob’s Trouble: The Nations

Judgment for dividing the land

The warning about the Gentiles treatment of the Jewish people also relates to their treatment of the land which God promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. 

Joel 3:1-2

“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.” (NKJV)

For this reason, Satan has kept Jerusalem and the land of Israel as the bullseye in his target.  For centuries, nation after nation has tried to possess the land, even to this very day.

PRAY FOR YOUR CHURCH AND YOUR NATION TO SUPPORT GOD’S PURPOSE FOR THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
