Day 20: Israel’s Salvation to Bring Life from the Dead for the World
- That God will raise up a movement of believers in Israel, filled with His Spirit and power, to bring the Gospel out of Zion just as the first Israeli disciples did
- That believers from Israel and around the world will partner together to bring the Gospel of the Kingdom to every tribe, tongue, and nation, including unreached people groups, leading to the return of Jesus
- That Yeshua will reveal Himself to Orthodox Jews who will become like the Apostle Paul and to secular Jews who will become like the Apostles Peter and John, laboring with an unwavering passion to bring the Gospel of Messiah to the ends of the earth
- That Israel as a nation would follow Yeshua and walk in His ways, giving Him glory and honor and being a testimony to the nations
Again I ask: Did [the Jewish people] stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke Israel to jealousy. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their failure means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their fullness bring!
I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry in the hope that I may somehow provoke my own people to jealousy and save some of them. For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem…. O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the Lord.
Isaiah 2:2-3, 5
[Of Israel]: This people I have formed for Myself; they shall declare My praise.
Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem! For the Lord has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord has made bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
And this Gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
“Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
“For on My holy mountain, on the high mountain of Israel,” declares the Lord God, “there the entire house of Israel, all of them, will serve Me in the land; there I will accept them and there I will demand your contributions and the choicest of your gifts, with all your holy things. As a soothing aroma I will accept you when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered; and I will show Myself to be holy among you in the sight of the nations.”
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” ’ ”
You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come. For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, and show favor to her dust. So the nations shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth Your glory. For the Lord shall build up Zion; He shall appear in His glory.
