Seventy-two years ago today a miracle occurred! The nation of Israel was born in a day…just as Scripture said! (Isaiah 66:8-10) Today, Israel is a thriving country in a Middle East neighborhood filled with nations who, throughout Israel’s history, have wanted to destroy them. God’s hand has prevailed!
Israel celebrates holidays according to the lunar calendar, so held their celebration a few days ago on Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Today, though, also marks the two-year anniversary of President Trump moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, declaring it to be the eternal capital of Israel. Praise God for that!
As you remember Israel’s statehood today, why not learn a bit more about the history and significance of that historic event of May 14, 1948. Enjoy!
Happy Birthday, Israel! May God’s grace shine brightly through you!
