Day of Atonement, Day of Outrage

Tomorrow evening, Jewish People around the world will pause to observe Yom Kippur—the Day of Atonement. This is the most holy day of the year on the Jewish calendar. And to those of us who are Believers in Yeshua, it is a powerful reminder of the price that was paid to purchase our salvation.

Yet, the bitter enemy of the Jewish People, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is scheduled to speak at the United Nations General Assembly on this sacred day. This is not a coincidence or an accident. For this man who has called for the destruction of Israel to speak to the General Assembly on Yom Kippur is an intentional and outrageous action that is being heralded in Muslim nations as a “victory over the Zionists” for this man. Israel has many enemies and few friends.

This is just one more reminder of the vital importance of our support for Israel and the Jewish People. Jewish Voice is not just a voice to the Jewish People telling them that Yeshua is the Messiah. We are also a voice for the Jewish People, telling the world that they need our help and support right now. Events are moving rapidly in the Middle East and our prayers for the peace of Jerusalem are crucial.

    Oh Yahweh, our God, please, please be with Israel. Grant her your shalom.
