Israel

Psalm 135:4 For the Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His special treasure.

I was blessed last month to be able to go with Keswick’s Israel Tour to the Holy Land, “In the Footsteps of Jesus.” The trip is certainly a wonderful adventure to be able to see this beautiful country and the specific areas which are written and described in the Bible.

Israel is a very interesting country to observe the land’s structure and foundation. In Israel there are many rocks and stones which have been used for building; they built cities on top of cities. Our tour guide educated us by teaching us about various areas of the country and observing the distinguishing centuries of time, with the land that is preserved. We can clearly see the 1st century times of the Roman Empire with its pillars and markings. We also saw many places of the Byzantine century of its richly decorative architecture stones. I was standing in so many different places where specific events took place in the history of the Bible. The Bible comes to life and it’s a life changing experience and it has changed my perspective of reading the Bible.

Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “ Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.

I prayed, “Lord, my life needs to be built on that solid rock, that precious cornerstone of the Lord, a strong foundation and may I always be seeking after you, Lord.”

Luke 6:48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.

Psalm 102:14 For your servants take pleasure in her stones, And show favor to her dust.

Glory to God
