WHAT WILL THE LORD DO? –
WHAT WILL YOU DO?

BY JOHN PROSSER, PRESIDENT, OEUSA

Know therefore this day that the Lord your God is He Who goes over before you as a devouring fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall dispossess them and make them perish quickly, as the Lord has promised you.

Deuteronomy 9:3 AMPC

As I write this article, Israel is at war! It is under attack by formidable enemies whose sole mission is to annihilate Israel. Militant terrorists have carried out the deadliest attack in Israel’s history, perpetrating barbaric acts of violence against Jewish men, women, and innocent children. The Jewish people have not witnessed such violence and loss of life since the Holocaust. This act of war against Israel has propelled the world to great instability and great danger. These are indeed perilous times. 

This is the time. This is the day. This is the hour for “we the people” – those who believe and trust in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – to stand and raise their voices in prayer and support for the Jewish people and for their nation – Israel. Just as God called Moses and chose him to be an instrument in His hand to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, to free them from slavery and lead them into their Promised Land, we too must stand in intercession for the Israelites. We must plead with the LORD for the sparing of His people as we read in Deuteronomy 9:26: “And I prayed to the LORD, O LORD God, do not destroy Your people and Your heritage, whom You have redeemed through Your greatness, whom You have brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand.” (AMPC) Our intercession must be like Moses’ cry before God. We must identify with their suffering and pray that they will cry out to their God to save them! The LORD is faithful to answer their cries!

We are witnessing the buildup of world events that will bring about the culmination of the second exodus. The mighty Hand of God orchestrated the first exodus, and He is orchestrating a mass Aliyah to bring His people home to their Promised Land – Israel. Today, many are asking, “What will Israel do?” to defend itself against its mortal enemies? I believe the most crucial question to ask now is, “What will the LORD do? What is His plan?” We have full confidence, and we trust that the God of Israel will deliver His people from this present-day enemy – for His great Name’s sake! “For the LORD will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you a people for himself.” (1 Samuel 12:22 ESV) 

This is a time for action to help God’s people as they face the perils of this wicked war. Our personal responses to the LORD’s call to service will greatly impact our own personal lives and the lives of our Jewish friends. The needs will be great, and we will work together with Ebenezer Operation Exodus International to provide help and relief to Jewish people in new and unique ways!

This war also has the potential to bring dire consequences to America, placing Jewish people in grave danger. They need our prayers and support as never before as anti-Semitism continues to increase radically and grow louder throughout our nation. Are you prepared to answer God’s call to serve Him and His chosen people in perilous times? Let us join our voices to the LORD in thanksgiving and praise! “Sing to ADONAI! Praise ADONAI! For he rescues those in need from the clutches of evildoers.” Jeremiah 20:13 CJ
