As Nations meddle …

Why are western politicians so keen to get involved with the affairs of the Jewish State? Chuck and Karen Cohen follow the latest developments.

Whatever 2017 holds for us, let’s remain focused on the ultimate goal for God’s kingdom – that He would be glorified through the exaltation of His Son. “… every tongue should confess that Messiah Yeshua is Lord – to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil. 2:11; see also John 12:27-28)

Old Testament saints knew this, and often based their prayers on it. “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name. Deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Your name’s sake.” (Ps. 79:9); “Not unto us, YHWH…but unto Your name give glory, for Your mercy, and truth’s sake.” (Ps. 115:1)

This goal is explicit throughout Scripture, and today, it is God’s goal in restoring His people to His land. “I will cause the captivity of Judah and… Israel to return, and will build them as at the first… And it shall be to Me a name of joy, praise and honour before all nations who shall hear of all the good that I do to them.” (Jer. 33:7, 9a); “But I had pity for My holy name, which the exiled house of Israel profaned among the gentiles. Therefore …I am not doing this for your sakes, house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake…I will sanctify My great name …and the gentiles shall know that I am YHWH …when I shall be sanctified in you [Israel] before their eyes.” (Ezek. 36:2123)

God is never trumped…
