Isaiah (Haftarat Eikev): America's Destiny To Help Israel's Restoration
1) This is my last Bible study of the weekend...just going to read some of the verses from the supplemental reading, where God reassures the Jewish people of salvation. Isaiah 49:14 - 51:3
2) "But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me; my Lord has forgotten me.
Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?
Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you."
3) America is going to help restore Israel.
4) "Thus says the Lord God: 'Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and raise my signal to the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders."
5) "Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken, & the prey of the tyrant be rescued, for I will contend w/ those who contend w/ you, & I will save your children. I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, & they shall be drunk w/ their own blood as with wine." Is. 49:25
6) "Then all flesh shall know that I am the Lord your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob."
