Contrary to what we may think about Israel, Jewish people are seeking their Messiah and some are finding Him! Many of us can quote Jeremiah 29:11 about God’s plans for a future and a hope. But do you know what follows it, and to whom it was written? It was written to the Jews and says this:
Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.’
Wow, what promises! The Lord will be found by those Jews who seek Him. He will restore them and gather them from where they have been driven. He will bring them back from exile.
He is doing all that today! We see Israel being restore and we see the Jews returning to the place He is gathering them (Israel). But we are also seeing them seek the Lord…and He is being found!
Here is an inspiring testimony of one such Jewish person. Enjoy!
As we continue celebrating this Christmas season, let’s give praise to the Savior for drawing His people back to Himself! Also, stay tuned over the next two days to learn more about Christmas in Israel.
