Weekly Update: “Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with His people”
21 December 2020
The restoration of the twelve tribes to the land continues unabated. God is fulfilling His promises.
As the articles below show, this return is being met with much opposition.
The struggles both within and around Israel can be seen as signs of the ‘birthpangs’: signs of the difficult process of giving birth to the new kingdom.
As the Christian world celebrates Christmas, we do well to remember that God is in control of history, and that He will fulfill all that He has promised.
We do not believe in some ephemeral, nebulous kingdom, but in the firm and unshakeable covenants entered into by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He gave His only-begotten Son to confirm the promises to the patriarchs. Many of the promises have been fulfilled. But Israel has not yet been restored. Christ has not yet claimed His kingship over the nations. The Kingdom of peace and righteousness on earth promised to Mary has not yet been fulfilled.
The best is yet to come.
We wish all our readers a blessed Christmas season.
