2 Chronicles 6:20-21(MSG) Listen to my prayers, energetic and devout, that I’m setting before you right now. Keep your eyes open to this Temple area day and night, this place you promised to dignify with your Name. And listen to the prayers that I pray in this place. And listen to your people Israel when they pray at this place. Listen from your home in heaven and when you hear, forgive.
In just a couple of hours here in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, it will be the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. It is the day of Yom Kippur when Jewish tradition asks the God of Creation to forgive their transgressions. For the Jewish people, life and God are the most important ideals in their lives. I have lived among the Jewish people now for just less than thirty years and I see their heart cry that to save a life is to save the world. This is one of the reasons when you see a natural disaster anywhere in the world, Israel is one of the first countries to rally to be of assistance, especially with medical teams and disaster relief. The biased media will hardly mention it because of their hatred and we ask forgiveness for them from our Heavenly Father as they do not know what they do to themselves when that final day comes. I honestly feel so sorry for the people of the world that are against this God of Creation, as I spoke yesterday, they do not realize where they are headed in the final judgment.
We may not be able to see into this other dimension of God but it is very real and I am convinced that this Father of Lights desires everyone on this planet to come to Him for everlasting “Life” in His Kingdom. He is well aware that just as in the days of Noah, this will not happen but He is delaying that final day in order to bring as many as will understand and be plucked from the fire, as it were, to come to Him. Thus, Lord, we plead for forgiveness as the world does not know what they do. We thank you, Father for hearing us, Amen.
