"I will fix your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River Euphrates, for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you will drive them out before you."

Taking a look at even at the simplest of maps, we see that the land mass promised to the sons of Israel was sizeable. For their love and worship, with obedience, much were the promises of God. Since the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948, much dissension deals with the right to the land, and Israels right to live on the land. Surrounding nations and people groups, with many wanting peace, while others want to deny the Jews right to live. Within the hearts of the sons of disobedience, works an ominous view that the Jews have no right to live. Land and right to the land becomes a reason for them to pursue the eventual annihilation of an entire race of people. This has been attempted before, but the Lord continues to shelter His people. Look up people, see the signs of the times, know that our Redeemer draws near.

Opportunities

Ministry Opportunities - Amidst the Covid and its variants that have run through the world this last year or so, may go through a variety of differing scenarios. Some go on as they have, others with waning confidence in the vaccine, still many fear filled, others with cautious methodical movement, some still healing from the effects of Covid, others going through financial, health or family issues. The variations are multiplied by the changes. In all of this child of God, look for the opportunities to share a word of encouragement, to offer to pray and to share the love of Christ.
