Am Israel Chai
Today’s Texts: Isaiah 65:18-19; 66:10


Today, the modern state of Israel celebrates 68 years since rebirth on May 14, 1948! Not just an opportunity for the Jewish community to express joy, people of biblical faith should rejoice because Israel is proof that God is fulfilling His word!


ISAIAH 65:18-19

“But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create;
For behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing,
And her people a joy.

I will rejoice in Jerusalem,
And joy in My people.”


ISAIAH 66:10

“Rejoice with Jerusalem,
And be glad with her, all you who love her;
Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her.”

Am Yisrael Chai (The Nation of Israel Lives) written in the Hebrew alphabet, adorned with two Magen David.


Those who love God will love Israel; and, those who love Israel will rejoice with Jerusalem!  Remind your family and friends that God is blessing the modern, vibrant and thriving State of Israel. AM ISRAEL CHAI – Israel is alive!
