Week 6: Receive Jesus’ Kingdom: REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION of Our Nation & Global Region
By Mr Kelvin Crombie, Perth, WA
Sphere of Influence: Religion – Israel
Intention: That Israel Will Receive the Promise of the New Covenant.
One of the greatest of all promises given to the nation of Israel is that of a New Covenant as prophesied by Jeremiah:
“Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah … this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my Law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. No more shall every man teach his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” Jeremiah 31:31-34.
Receive God’s Promises for Our Nation & Global Region:
Jesus/Yeshua came as the representative Israelite with whom God established this New Covenant. Although many Jewish people entered into covenant with Jesus, the nation then did not. Yet Paul wrote of a day when ‘all Israel would be saved’ (Romans 11:25-26). Meanwhile in his abundant grace and mercy, God has allowed Gentiles to also enter into this covenant with Israel – without first having to become Jewish. Paul also wrote that when Jewish and Gentile peoples enter into covenant with Jesus there would be created One New Man in Messiah, which would result in peace (Ephesians 2:11-19). Today there are upwards of 150,000 Jewish followers of Jesus/Yeshua worldwide, but the nation is still far from receiving the blessings of the New Covenant.
Pray for REVIVAL and TRANSFORMATION:
• Please pray and encourage individual Jewish people to enter into a personal covenant relationship with Jesus/Yeshua their King Messiah. Please pray for ministries that are reaching out to Jewish people. www.celebratemessiah.com.au
• Please pray our nation of Australia knows that by God’s abundant grace, His covenant and transformation is available to every soul.
• Please continue to pray each day for the friends on your heart these 40 days – that they too know the Lord.
