I am going to ask you to please forward this message to as many of your Jewish friends as possible. I realize you as a nation and a people are dealing with a great deal of threats all around you. I want to assure you God is aware of it all. Your nation is experiencing the prophecy of Zechariah 12 where it says Jerusalem is a stumbling stone to the whole world. We pray for you. May God keep you safe.

Mark Bach 

A message for the children of Abraham in the Holy Land from Mark Bach, evangelist from Hyder, Alaska. 

Destiny- Destiny simply means- what is to be will be. God has a plan and when our life fits in that plan and we find that plan- that is called destiny. In the way of destiny, if you are Jewish you are part of Gods destiny. We see that in Jewish History and Bible prophecy.


In a world full of idolatry God raised up a man called Abraham and his wife Sarah to introduce the world, not to a graven image, but to the true and living God. God used this couple against all odds. God sent them to a distant land and told this barren couple that they would one day produce a nation, a nation that would make a difference in the world and also introduce the world to the true and living God.


So, how would this be accomplished? By destiny. It was their calling. So after many years Abraham and Sara had a son called Isaac, Isaac had a son called Jacob, and Jacob had 12 tribes that became the nation of Israel, just as God had said.


This nation grew and multiplied and sojourned in Egypt. Then after their redemption by the hand of Moses, God gave them the Law. What was the great first commandment Moses received on Sinai? God said, I am the Lord your God ... Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20: 3-2


After 40 years in the wilderness these people went into Canaan land with a new written mandate to wipe out idolatry from the earth beginning in Palestine otherwise known as Canaan. They were to reestablish a civilized society without idolatry as an example to the world, with an ear, eye, and heart upon the true living God their Creator and caregiver. From the children of Abraham and Sara God raised up a nation of judges and kings, of prophets of the Bible, and of priests of a religion all about redemption.


Unfortunately, as humans do, Israel has a history of failing to live up to her assignment. They failed the mandate to wipe out idolatry from the planet, and God allowed the very idolatrous nations around her to correct her and on more than one occasion she went into captivity. This, too is destiny.


Throughout this time frame Jewish prophets gave the world the words of prophecy and words of warning to those who refuse to live free and clear of idolatry. They gave words of comfort for those who abstain from idolatry and all things that offend God, including all the violations of the law and uncleanness.


Over time, as destiny would have it, Israel as a nation failed herself to live clean from idolatry, and following her Zenith under Solomon she had a history of hypocrisy. Then finally God personally intervenes. God decided to come personally as Jewish prophets predicted, and fix the world’s big problem of idolatry.


He was born in Bethlehem -Micah 5:2.
He was born miraculously- Isaiah 7:14
He came meek and lowly- Zechariah 9:9
He was destined to be the King of Israel.
He died on a cross for Israel- Isaiah 53
His reestablished a new plan to rid the world of Idolatry.


After the rejection and crucifixion of Jesus the Messiah, Israel as a nation was again scattered to every nation under heaven and almost lost her identity. But miraculously after about 2,000 years of dispersion God allowed the return of Israel back to her land from the nations of captivity. See Ezekiel 37 concerning the resurrection and return of Israel after 2,000 years of dispersion.


Today, she is back in her land; yet Israel as a nation is still seeking her place in the world. Many of her people are awakening to her stewardship before God and her responsibility to be a light to the nations. Many are embracing Jesus the Christ as the Messiah Redeemer of Israel as the world continues to go into apostasy and idolatry all around her. Some people around the world continue to persecute God’s nation Israel. Why? Because she is the stewardship nation that gave us the words through Moses- “I am the Lord your God ... Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” See Romans 11 in NT that speaks of Israel reassuming spiritual leadership in the nations following her 2,000 year dispersion.


Israel is the nation through which Christ came who said these words in Matthew 24- “When you see the blossoming of the fig tree (Israel) you know summertime is nigh (The hot heat of persecution). This generation shall not pass away until all these things be fulfilled.” This refers to God’s final offer of grace to the nations of the world before he comes personally to deal with a world again given to idolatry.


So according to the prophet Ezekiel, according to the writings of Paul in Romans Ch. 11, and according to Jesus word for the Jews in Matt. 24, God is not through working in and through His stewardship nation, Israel. Like it or not she is back in her land. She is picking up her Bible, and she is finding her identity. The hatred of the world is only driving her to the only place where real hope is found and that is back to the God of Abraham and away from the idolatry he warns against, and to consider and embrace her Messiah who is her only defense from the hate, insult, and assault of the despisers of all representatives of the reality of the Creator of Israel, the Giver of the Bible, and Creator of the universe- Israel’s God.


Now lets look at an ancient word for an ancient people from the prophet Isaiah.

Isaiah 40:9-10 “O Zion (people of Israel), that bringest good tidings (that is the message of hope found in the Bible), get thee up into the high mountain (assume your place as light of the nations); O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings (that is the message of Christ the Messiah from the mouth of Jewish apostles), lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.”- This simply means that Israel’s only real defense is in God who is coming to stand up for Israel against all the nations who hate her.


This simply states that Jesus Christ the Redeemer will come again to take his place to correct the nations for their idolatry and assume His position as King of Israel and the nations. This is the destiny of Israel according to the Bible. This is the promise of the Jewish prophets. The question today for us is- what are we going to do with Jesus the Redeemer and Messiah of Israel? It is up to you. He invites you to receive Him.


“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” Isaiah 45:22
