‘Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ Philippians 1:6
Bible reading: Jeremiah 31:31-37 (Go to the Bible passage)
Anyone who ever experienced the overwhelming faithfulness of God, will understand how Jeremiah has been searching for words to describe this. And how careful he was in the choice of his words; God surely helped him. For even now, in this age of science, these words are fitting to describe the unchanging faithfulness of God.
After all, the infinite universe will never be measurable, and the foundations of the earth below cannot be searched out: we can only make rough estimations about all this. And even if we would acquire more knowledge of these matters, it is unimaginable that when all this would falter – when the sun and the moon would cease to shine - that still human life would be possible.
Therefore, as long as humans live on earth, Israel will be a nation before God.
Demonic forces in the past and also in these days do their utmost to destroy the people of Israel. But history teaches us that – sometimes on the very verge of success – God always intervened and destroyed the perpetrators.
Severely tested - more than humanly bearable - Israel, God’s people, will emerge from the current of world events as a purified nation, by which God will be able to give His blessing to all people who then still will be around.
For although it seems that humanity destroys itself by its willfulness, God in His wisdom will leave a multitude of people who will know Jerusalem as the Holy City, where the King of kings will be seated to reign in righteousness.
