A new INFORM series entitled “Israel Re-Born” will begin on Monday, February 22. The series will briefly look at details surrounding the rebirth of the modern State of Israel along with the people and processes involved. Until then, a daily Bible passage will be posted to highlight the biblical foundation for the series.

 

AMOS 9:11-15

“On that day I will raise up
The tabernacle of David, which has fallen down,
And repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins,
And rebuild it as in the days of old;

That they may possess the remnant of Edom,
And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,”
Says the LORD who does this thing.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the LORD,

“When the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
And the treader of grapes him who sows seed;
The mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
And all the hills shall flow with it.

I will bring back the captives of My people Israel;
They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them.

I will plant them in their land,
And no longer shall they be pulled up
From the land I have given them,”
Says the LORD your God.

 

The above passage of Scripture is a prophetic reminder of Israel’s spontaneous, miraculous and supernatural rebirth!
