IN HONOR OF THE LORD'S WORK AMONG HIS PEOPLE

On May 14, 1948, the Lord reestablished Israel in the Land in fulfillment of Isaiah 11:11-12; Ezekiel 20:33-38; 22:17-22; 36:22-24; 38:7-9 and Zephaniah 2:1-2, and has sustained them these 60 years. Let us sustain them in prayer until it can be said,



60 Years in 60 Seconds

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of Yahveh is risen upon thee. For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Yahveh will arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And nations shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. - Isaiah 60:1-3
