This modern world must think that God just sits back in His rocking chair and watches events as they unfold. If He’s taken seriously at all, He’s already done it all and the Bible is just another history book. It’s a history book, all right, one that is still in the making. Just take a look at some recent events.
Psalm 111:2 says that the works of the Lord are great. That’s an understatement. If the Lord wants to get someone’s attention, all resources are at his disposal. In Zephaniah 1:2 the question asks if a bird can fall from the sky when there is no trap. That’s a yes. Thousands of birds fell from the sky in Arkansas, Alabama, California, Kentucky, Louisiana, Texas, Italy and Sweden in January, 2011. The reasons given were pretty creative to say the least. It would have been far smarter to say that God is sending a message.
From the time of Abraham on, Israel has been a prominent part of history. Beginning in Genesis 15 it says that God gave the land from the river of Egypt to the Euphrates River (verse 18) to Abraham’s seed. And from the very beginnings of ancient history, the land has belonged to Israel. This is the only group of people that God has given any land to.
In recent years there has been a big push on to reduce the size of Israel. The latest attempt is to reduce it to a 9-mile wide strip of land. In late 2005 Prime Minister Ariel Sharon gave up the Gaza Strip. Shortly after that in January, 2006, he suffered a massive stroke. Mr. Sharon forgot Psalm 137:5,6.
There have been many moves to reduce the size of Israel. Some of them are going on right here in America. This was the subject of Sweden’s revival this week which was led by Bro. Randy Dalton. He was much more detailed than this space allows. There are 6 CDs in the set. Those who want copies can call at the number below and they will be mailed to you.
Sweden Church gladly gives away copies of the sermons on CD. Call (4l7)543-6219 to get a copy. Live like Jesus came yesterday, died today, and is coming back tomorrow.
