Israel’s Desert Forests

18 02 2020



One reason I pray for rain in Israel is because of a promise that applies to Israel’s desert. The Bible says the desert will blossom like a rose.

For Yehovah will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of Yehovah;
Joy and gladness will be found in it,
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody. Isaiah 51:3

Israel’s Negev Desert is the only desert in the world that is shrinking. That is mostly because of Israel’s system of drip irrigation, as they take over more and more of the desert. However, the promise of God is that the desert itself will blossom.

What you may not know, is that the Negev Desert is full of all kinds of seeds. Did you know that it used to be a forest? In the Judgment of Israel spoken of in Ezekiel 20, God refers to the forests of the Negev.

“Son of man, set your face toward the south; preach against the south and prophesy against the forest land, the South,” Ezekiel 20:46

The Hebrew word translated South in English is Negev. That is exactly the area that is now desert, but used to be forests! All God needs to do is add water!

Pray For Rain, and pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.
