Numbers 22:12 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed.
Israel, such a tiny Nation. Still, they always seem to be in the middle of a fight. They are a Nation that is always struggling for peace. A People, who at one time God held dear, and at another He turned His back on them. So, what are we to think of the People and the Nation of Israel?
In our verse today, we find an answer. “Thou shalt not curse these people for they are blessed.” You might ask, “Even today.” I would answer yes, even today. In the Bible we find that at the end of it all in the book of Revelation, God will call back unto Himself the People of the Nation of Israel. As He promised, He has never ever completely forsaken His chosen people. Neither should we. EVER!
What a comfort to know we have a God who never gives up on us, even if we give up on Him, or give up on ourselves. God will never leave nor forsake those He loves and calls His own.
We should never ever forget that we who are believers in Christ are the church, the Bride of Christ. We make up a group of extremely special people to the Lord God Almighty. Nevertheless, Israel remains forever and always His chosen people. Let us pray that our nation will always support the nation of Israel even in the face of others who might disagree. Pray for the people of Israel.
