When God Responds To Israel's Repentance

By Francis Frangipane

For the most part, I've been silent and simply prayerful concerning Israel, the "Road Map" and the future.  Now, however, as terrorism and reprisals again escalate, let me offer some thoughts.

First, both the Old Testament and New Testament reveal that God's purposes are irrevocably intertwined with the return and restoration of Israel (Ezek. 37-39; Rev 7).  For those who believe the church has replaced Israel, the Bible tells us that the Jews are God's covenant people, and that as long as the sun, moon and stars exist, the Lord's covenant with Israel shall stand (Jer. 31:35-36).  Of course, through Jesus Christ, Christians receive a better covenant with better promises, but God has not broken His covenant with Israel.  Nothing will thwart the promises of God, as centuries of persecution, Hitler's ovens and, in time, Muslim terrorists will all testify before God in eternity.  Be assured, Israel's full restoration will come to pass in its time.
