“Though I scatter them among the peoples, yet in distant lands they will remember me.” Zechariah 10:9
Be alert as you read the Word. Allow the Holy Spirit to arrest you so that you can pray what you read.
Last week I was reading again from the prophet Zechariah. I am very aware of his prophecies about the end-times when nations will turn against Jerusalem (chapters 12 and 14), but I had never paid attention to this almost insignificant passage in Zechariah 10:9.
“Though I scatter them among the peoples, yet in distant lands they will remember me.”
This is a word from the Lord. He promises that the Jews in the Diaspora, the scattered sons and daughters of Israel, will remember Him from distant lands. Ezekiel 36:24-26 speaks of those who will come to faith after they have returned to the Land, but Zechariah is speaking of Jews in the Diaspora.
This is what has happened in our day to Eitan and Connie Shishkoff, Asher and Betty Intrater, Jonathan Bernis, Stan Telchin, Marty Waldman, Sid Roth, Norma Sarvis, and a host of others. This scripture has been/is being fulfilled in our day.
Let us stop and pray. Let us ask for more. Pray the Word!
Lord, you promised that in distant lands the Jewish people would remember you. You are fulfilling this promise in our day. We are asking for more. Give revelation to the Jewish people in the Diaspora. Reveal Yourself to them as You did to Saul on that Damascus road. More, Lord! May the rabbis of the world, the Jewish people scattered among the nations come to faith in You and Messiah Yeshua. We pray this in Yeshua’s most powerful Name! Amen!
