No Weapon Can Stand Against Israel

12 04 2013

Christians have long used the verse from Isaiah to proclaim God’s protection. Actually, it is a promise directly to Israel that applies now more  than ever. There are still 10,000 rockets targeting Israel in Gaza, and intelligence experts agree that 70,000 rockets and missiles are in the hands of Hezbollah in southern Lebanon. This verse certainly can apply also to Christians who are “grafted in” to Israel, but the historical application is the nation of Israel.

But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of Yehovah; their vindication will come from me. I, Yehovah, have spoken! Isaiah 54:17 NLT

IDF 130409_gantzHow wonderful to hear a reference to this verse from the mouth of Israeli army chief Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz. He recently spoke at a Holocaust remembrance Day observance at the Auschwitz Death Camp:

Speaking to a large number of Israeli, Jewish and non-Jewish dignitaries, Gantz echoed Isaiah 54:17 in declaring that “there is no weapon or evil intention that can stand” against Israel. Gantz said the presence of Israeli Jewish soldiers in Auschwitz, along with their supporters, was “living proof of the victory of light, the victory of morality, [and] the triumph of Israel.” Israel Today

As the storm clouds gather around Israel it is comforting to rest on this promise. Please continue in faithful prayer and intercession on behalf of Israel. We also proactively stand for Israel by speaking truth against the growing anti-Israel propaganda. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Jesus is the real Prince of Peace, Yeshua Sar Shalom.

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!)
