Covenant & Government #17: Lord of Hosts Part 3

“For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth,
the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, 
and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.”
—Haggai 2:6-7 (NKJV)

Who divided the sea whose waves roared—
The Lord of hosts is His name (Isaiah 51:15).

Prayers for Israel

For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you [Jerusalem] shall perish,
and those nations shall be utterly ruined. Isaiah 60:12

Please pray for our Nation’s involvement and support for Israel.

Blessed are You Adonai, the Holy One of Israel, who keeps covenant with Israel. Thank You for Your Word that speaks blessings to Your people from Joel 3:18-21:

And it will come to pass in that day
That the mountains shall drip with new wine,
The hills shall flow with milk,
And all the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water;
A fountain shall flow from the house of the Lord
And water the Valley of Acacias.

“Egypt shall be a desolation,
And Edom a desolate wilderness,
Because of violence against the people of Judah,
For they have shed innocent blood in their land.
But Judah shall abide forever,
And Jerusalem from generation to generation.
For I will acquit them of the guilt of bloodshed, whom I had not acquitted;
For the Lord dwells in Zion.” 

Amen.
