The Planting of the Lord

Pastor Wayne Hilsden—Ebenezer Emergency Fund International Advisory Council Member

Since their very inception as a nation, the Jewish people became aware of their calling—to become "the planting of the Lord." It was for that very purpose that God brought them out of Egypt. Following their miraculous deliverance through the Red Sea, Moses and the children of Israel sang these words in Exodus 15:17: "You will bring them in and plant them In the mountain of Your inheritance, In the place, 0 Lord, which You have made For Your own dwelling, The sanctuary, 0 Lord, which Your hands have established."
