May 19: Jacob’s Trouble – God’s unique relationship with Israel

The sin of Jerusalem

Israel flaunts her rebellion and sin for all the world to see.  Jerusalem is the target for every vile perversion to be paraded down the streets of the city where God has put His name. 

Isaiah 3:8-9

For Jerusalem stumbled,
And Judah is fallen,
Because their tongue and their doings
Are against the Lord,
To provoke the eyes of His glory.
The look on their countenance witnesses against them,
And they declare their sin as Sodom;
They do not hide it.
Woe to their soul!
For they have brought evil upon themselves.

 

PRAY FOR THE LEADERS OF JERUSALEM TO STAND FOR HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Bernhard Lichtenberg was a German Catholic priest in Berlin. From the beginning of the Nazi movement he spoke out against it. He prayed openly daily from his pulpit for the Jews, Jewish Christians and other victims of the Nazis. He was arrested and he asked to be deported with the Jews, but died on prison of ill health prior to being sent to Dachau. See more at www.yadvashem.org
