The Amish Voice 12

As I was with Moses, so I will

be with thee: I will not fail

thee, nor forsake thee.

time of tribulation. Many will die in this day of trouble

(Zechariah 13:8-9). Once again Israel's enemies will try to

destroy this nation. This time of trouble is seen in Revelation

chapter 12 where the “WOMAN” refers to the nation of Israel

and the “DRAGON” refers to Satan.

Does Satan try to destroy the nation? ______

Does he succeed? ________

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.

We read about Christ's coming in Zechariah 12:9-12. Will the

Jewish people be sorry for the way they treated Christ when He

came the first time? _______

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

of Israel. God promised that this nation would never be

they all failed!!

God keeps the believer SAFE


Just like Adam and Eve in

the garden of Eden, when

our relationship with God

seems distant, it is not

God who has left us, but

we who have left Him. He



waiting for us to turn back

to Him. We sometimes

leave Him, but He

promises that He will

never leave us.


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


Genesis 3:8-9

—Lois Ewing

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.”
