75 Years! From Mourning to Gladness

25 04 2023

Watch just the first minute of this video. Israel has just observed its very sober memorial day where everything stops for two minutes of silent prayer, even every car on the highways. This is followed the next day by their independence day celebrations. This is rather unique to Israel and reminds me of the days of Queen Esther after the defeat of the Jews enemies in Persia.

“as the days on which the Jews got relief from their enemies, and as the month that had been turned for them from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and gladness, days for sending gifts of food to one another and gifts to the poor.”  Esther 9:22 ESV

Here are just a few of the great stories from Israel’s 75th Anniversary as the miracle nation of Yehovah God’s promises fulfilled. Enjoy each story and pray for God’s continuing restoration and favor of His beloved land. Please click each link for the full story.

The Country Comes Alive When the People Are at Home – Seventy-five years have passed and the State of Israel has almost 10 million people. In 25 years, when Israel celebrates its 100th anniversary, there will be around 17 million people. Tiny Israel is a phenomenon in the 21st century demographic landscape.

75 Years of the Biblical Economic Miracle  In a very short time, Israel has developed from a barren desert to a high-tech oasis. Israel’s economy is a true miracle. A country is still young at 75 years of age. But the direction is clearly emerging: blessings are pouring down on the Jewish nation, not only, but also in economic terms. Little Israel is truly a land of plenty.

Israeli-Made High-Energy Laser Makes Debut – Called the Iron Beam, the system is designed to neutralize a range of incoming targets — including unmanned aerial systems, rockets, artillery and mortar rounds — using a 100-kilowatt or more directed energy weapon. “We actually can focus the beam to the diameter of a coin in a 10-kilometer range.”

Please pray for this demonstration in Israel this Thursday of a million people in support of Supreme Court reform in Israel.

Campaign in US in support of the Million-Person March – Just before the opening of the Knesset’s summer session of the Knesset, there will be a historic million-person demonstration in history in support of the reform of the justice system.

Finally, here is a link to my Palm Sunday message at Grace Assembly of God in Wake Forest, NC. I am also sharing this word in New Hampshire this week. The title is: “The Most Important Prayer Meeting in the History of the World.”

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and rain in season.
