Standing in the Gap for Israel
Standing in the gap for Israel, as we come in agreement with God’s Word as stated in Isaiah 62.
consider this :
God purposed for us to receive His mercy through His Son Yeshua the Messiah, so that we can show mercy to Israel by building a hedge around them, and standing in the gap for them so that they may receive God’s mercy as written in Romans 11:28-31
…. But with respect to being chosen they are loved for the Patriarchs ‘sake, for God’s free gifts and his calling are irrevocable. Just as you yourselves were disobedient to God before but have received mercy now because of Isra’el’s disobedience; so also Isra’el has been disobedient now, so that by your showing them the same mercy that God has shown you, they too may now receive God’s mercy.
We have been called to come in agreement with God’s plan as it is stated in Isaiah 62:1-12
For Tziyon’s sake I will not be silent,
for Yerushalayim’s sake I will not rest,
until her vindication shines out brightly
and her salvation like a blazing torch.
The nations will see your vindication
and all kings your glory.
Then you will be called by a new name
which ADONAI himself will pronounce.
You will be a glorious crown in the hand of ADONAI,
a royal diadem held by your God.
You will no longer be spoken of as ‘Azuvah [Abandoned]
or your land be spoken of as’ Sh’mamah [Desolate];
rather, you will be called Heftzi- Vah [My- Delight- Is- In- Her]
and your land Be’ulah [Married].
For ADONAI delights in you,
and your land will be married-
as a young man marries a young woman,
your sons will marry you;
as a bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
your God will rejoice over you.
I have posted watchmen
on your walls, Yerushalayim;
they will never fall silent,
neither by day nor by night.
You who call on ADONAI,
give yourselves no rest;
and give him no rest till he restores Yerushalayim
and makes it a praise on earth.
ADONAI has sworn by his right hand
and by his mighty arm:
“Never again will I give your grain
to your enemies as food;
nor will strangers drink your wine,
for which you worked so hard;
but those who harvest the grain will eat it
with praises to ADONAI;
those who gathered the wine will drink it
in the courtyards of my sanctuary.”
Go on through, go on through the gates,
clear the way for the people!
Build up a highway, build it up!
Clear away the stones!
Raise a banner for the peoples!
ADONAI has proclaimed to the end of the earth,
“Say to the daughter of Tziyon,
‘Here, your Salvation is coming!
Here, his reward is with him,
and his recompense is before him.'”
They will call them The Holy People,
The Redeemed of ADONAI.
You will be called D’rushah [Sought- After],
‘Ir Lo Ne’ezvah [City- No- Longer- Abandoned].
to fulfil God’s promise as stated in
For I will take you from among the nations, gather you from all the countries, and return you to your own soil. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your uncleanness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit inside you; I will take the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put my Spirit inside you and cause you to live by my laws, respect my rulings and obey them. You will live in the land I gave to your ancestors. You will be my people, and I will be your God
Based on the above mentioned promises God gave His people Israel, is it to much to ask for a people redeemed on account of the Love of God, to love Israel by stand in the gap to see the fulfilment of God’s promise for Israel.
Remember, the Words of Yeshua when He send His disciples.
Matthew 10:8 … As you go, You have received without paying, so give without asking payment
