“They will look on me whom they have pierced and mourn for him as for an only son. They will grieve bitterly for him as for a firstborn son who has died.”
After the Holocaust half my family immigrated to ISRAEL, the other half to USA. When my father was near death he said to me with tears in his eyes that he wished that He would have gone to Israel. I asked why? He said because I would have become a better Jew and would have grown up to love the God of Israel.
It continues to break my heart to think about his statement because my father never came to the knowledge of his Messiah Yeshua and just 3 years after he died I became a believer in the Son of God. I never had the opportunity to share JESUS with my father or mother.
My heart, soul and mind are in Israel, my Joy is in Israel, BUT most of All my Eternal Future is in ISRAEL, in the NEW JERUSALEM with my ETERNAL KING JESUS who came for me when He died on the CROSS and Later ASCENDED to HEAVEN and now Sits at the Right Hand of HIS FATHER… MY FOREVER ABBA.
SOON Very SOON, the Remnant of Jerusalem, called to Faith in Eternity Past will “Cry out to HIM Whom they PIERCED”.
Then the Last Chapter of the GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD will be over. And a New Eternal Story that GOD HAS WRITTEN will begin.
ONLY Those Who Believe in HIS SON YESHUA will be written on its pages.
Even So, COME LORD JESUS.
