The GOD of ISRAEL

God has revealed Himself in creation ~~~ that He has made and this is known as General Revelation. It is clearly portrayed in several passages of scripture, the most outstanding probably being Psalm 19:1 - 4 where the Psalmist says; "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor are there words; their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, and he comes forth as a bridegroom from his canopy; he rejoices as a strong man to run a race, going forth from the end of the heavens, and its course is to their ends. And there is nothing hid from its heat. MKJV
The New Testament also makes mention of this in a similar fashion in Romans 1:20 where it is said: "For since the creation of the world Godís invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
It is amazing to think that after all Satan has done to destroy the creation around us, the world still declares Godís glory! Have you ever wondered why it is so refreshing to be out in the woods or beside the lake? The answer is simple. Everything in nature is doing exactly what God the Father has commanded. The birds are building nests and migrating just as they were instructed. All nature is straining to bring forth fruit and to accomplish its other God-given functions.
When we consider man, we begin to realize the true dimensions of the fall recorded in Genesis chapter three. We find that man, unlike the animals, the birds, and all the rest of the created order, is not responding according to the divine program. Man is in fact, "doing his own thing." What if the birds or animals chose such a course? What if the birds simply said, "This year we refuse to fly those thousands of kilometres in order to migrate." The answer would be obvious; they would simply freeze to death in the north-country, or perish for a lack of food.
Man in his foolishness desires to be "free as a bird," not realizing that birds are not free. They are in complete submission to the divine decrees relating to them. The ancient author, Job, rebukes man concerning this with these words ~~~ "But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you." Job 12: 7 Ė 8
Godís SPECIAL Revelation ~~~ How would God be able to communicate with man? Could he accomplish this by revealing himself in the creation alone? No, God has gone further, to reveal himself in history and this is called Special Revelation. A big part of this Special Revelation is Godís revelation of himself in the historical process. God has revealed himself as the Lord of history. No other "god" has done such a thing and we may ask, did Baal or other false "gods" in the Bible reveal themselves in history, or work in history? No, we can now positively say that history worked on Baal and the other false "gods". It simply placed their images in garbage heaps and covered them with dust and ashes and so it is with all the other "gods" of today.
How different is the God of
God's revelation through Israel ~~~ While it is true that God has revealed himself throughout history to men and even to kings, we must go on to make clear that God has primarily revealed Himself to Abraham and to Israel. This is an important part of His special revelation. The scripture is clear that God didnít just reveal himself indiscriminately to all people. It might be said that God had to build an infrastructure of salvation, with plenty of types, patterns, pictures, stories, commandments, statutes, judgments, etc. This work took centuries and God knew that only Abraham and his seed,
So it was Godís eternal and unchanging plan to reveal Himself to and through
God is all-knowing. He knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:9-10). He certainly does not make mistakes in his choices. Did we ever wonder why
The Bible is a record of this great revelation given through history and through

The New Covenant (Testament) is not really new, but is a fulfilment of the Old Covenant (Testament) through the death and resurrection of Yeshua (Jesus).
The Jewish nation will experience terrible tribulation (a time of Jacobís Trouble), but there is still hope for the future. Yeshua (Jesus) was looking forward to the time when the Jews would be restored to their place of blessing as part of the New Israel. Even as He warned of judgement and tribulation, Yeshua gave a message of hope.
During Old Testament history
Today, the restored nation is still being trampled by the Gentiles. However, God has not forgotten

When they realise that Yeshua reigns at the right hand of God and that they have been saved by the prayers in His name, the whole land will be filled with tears. As they come to realise what Yeshua (Jesus) has done, they will all weep with sadness and joy (Zechariah - 14).

Satan's purpose has always been to thwart God's plan. He has done his best throughout history to destroy the Jewish people and hinder the light of the Good News about Yeshua the Messiah from penetrating into their hearts. To this end he has used many devices to blind their eyes and to build up prejudice and resentment in the very core of

Whilst scripture warns us against trying to calculate the time and the hour, it encourages us to recognise the signs of the times. We can see things shaping up to the climax, and we know that the return of our Messiah is near.
The bush is still on fire and the bush will not be consumed by the fire!
As believers we should align ourselves with God's purposes and intercede for their fulfilment.

The question must be asked "who is the Ďyeí of this verse?" Itís plural, so it is not one person; it is a body of people. "My people" is also plural. There are, in fact two groups of people in this verse. One group is being comforted and the other is the comforter.
Common sense tells us that you cannot be the one that is being comforted and also be the comforter. The people being comforted in this verse are "My people," which is physical

God repeatedly says that He inspires prophecies of future events in order that when they come to pass, nations will have to acknowledge that the fulfilment comes from Him alone.
What a privilege to love
A highly significant moment has come in divine history. Once again God has ushered in the age of miracles and mighty deeds among His people
