The Amish Voice 12
As I was with Moses, so I will
be with thee: I will not fail
thee, nor forsake thee.
I will give them a heart to
know Me, for I am the LORD;
and they will be My people,
and I will be their God, for
they will return to Me with
their whole heart.
time of tribulation. Many will die in this day of trouble
(Zechariah 13:8-9). Once again Israel's enemies will try to

and the “DRAGON” refers to Satan.

The Messiah Comes!
When Christ came the first time, the Jewish people rejected
Him. When Christ comes the second time, the Jewish people
will receive Him (see Romans 11:26-27)! At the end of the
tribulation things will look very hopeless for the Jewish people.
They will be surrounded by their enemies and once again it will
look as though they will be destroyed; but in the darkest hour,
the Messiah will return and the nation will be delivered.

The Greatest Nation On Earth
After Christ returns, He will set up His kingdom on the earth.
During this kingdom, the nation of Israel will be the greatest
kingdom on earth and the Jews will be looked up to and
respected more than any other people (see Zechariah 8:23).
Christ will not set up His throne from Washington D.C. or from
Moscow, but from the city of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be the
capital of the world (Isaiah 2:1-3). God told Abraham that a
great nation would come out of him.
God Has a Wonderful Future for Israel
The Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments, reveals that
God has promised a wonderful future to the nation Israel. God
will keep all His promises and all His covenants which He made
with His chosen people. Christians everywhere should have a
great love in their hearts for the Jewish people.
God's Word is True
We have seen that God kept His promise concerning the nation
of Israel. God promised that this nation would never be
destroyed! Even though nation after nation tried to destroy it,
they all failed!!

waiting for us to turn back
to Him. We sometimes
leave Him, but He

A Firm Grip
And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from
the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art
As I was walking with Jesus, our hands were firmly gripped.
We walked, talked, laughed, and cried together,
And still there was the firm grip.
Then, as years passed by, I let the world slip in a little at a time.
Soon, I wasn’t walking and talking as often with our Lord.
I realized that I missed His firm grip.
I knelt down in prayer and asked why He had let go.
Jesus answered and said, “I still have a firm grip.”
“It is you who was losing your grip.”
