 Day 4 (May 10) - Isaiah 62 Fast


“Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Israel is My son, My
firstborn. So I say to you, let My son go that he may serve Me. But if you
refuse to let him go, indeed I will kill your son, your firstborn.”’”
Exodus 4:22–23 NKJV

God declares that Israel is His firstborn son. At that time, the sons of
Jacob had multiplied to form a nation. God states that He is the
Father of the nation of Israel. He does not speak about an individual
but a people. Nevertheless, His fatherly relationship to such a large
group is neither impersonal nor aloof. God draws a parallel between
His firstborn son and Pharaoh’s firstborn son.

Like a father takes on the neighborhood bully, because he cannot let
his children suffer another abuse, God takes on Pharaoh. He does
not tolerate crimes against His son—the sons of Jacob—any longer.
He rises against the shedding of innocent blood. He puts a stop to the
murderous politics of the king of Egypt. He says: “No more genocide!
No more slaughtering of My firstborn son—the descendants of My friend Abraham! If you keep doing this, I will kill your son, your
firstborn! You will experience what I feel when you mistreat them!”

Pharaoh had to learn that when he touched Israel, he had to face
God’s wrath. What happens to Israel is very personal to God. It’s not
business; it’s family! God stands to defend and protect His firstborn son.


Our Father,

We bless Your holy name. We praise You for Your fatherly love for the
nation of Israel. We thank You for rising and defending Your firstborn
son. Thank you for contending with those who bullied Your people.
You are a good Father to Israel.

We pray for the Body of Messiah to embrace Israel as God’s firstborn
son and acknowledge that no one can take his place. We pray that
the worldwide Church will admit that she is a branch—not the root—
that has been grafted into the olive tree of Israel.

We pray for the Church to stand with the children of Israel and not
against them. We pray for the believers worldwide to align with
God’s will for the Jewish people. We pray that the Body of Christ will
stand firm against any form of anti-Semitism.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.


Day 4 (Day 34 of the Omer, 10 May 2023)

Verse 3 “You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.”

Majestic Master, surely Your heart will thrill when Zion becomes, by and in Your hand, a crown of glory, a royal diadem. I praise and magnify You for Your wondrous ways with her. You are lifting our struggling and spiritually lost nation to unimaginably dazzling heights! I bless and say “amen” to what You are doing.

As a crown or diadem represents royal authority, may all the royal authority You have decreed for Israel come to fullness, in its time and without delay, for the sake of the glory of Your Name. You who dwell in regal splendor, dispense hope from heaven to Israel that You will surely bring this to pass. For Zion’s sake and Yours, I stand in the royal authority Yeshua has graciously stewarded to me and declare from Your prophetic Word: Israel, you will surely be lifted up by the hand of God, your only King. He will transform you once more from “Jacob,” one who struggles with God and man, to the fullness of “Israel,” Prince with God. And now I pray, my King, for the governing authorities of Israel to align with the decrees of Your Word, even this day. Consume them with longing for Your Word, so they will search for it as for hidden treasure. Gift them with the fear of the Lord, for it is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. In Your merciful love, show them Your Salvation. Raise up leaders in Zion who seek Your royal leadership. Cause Your face to shine on them. May Your favor surround them as a shield. Under Your crowning glory, guard them from enemy attack in every realm. Thank You that by Your grace, my prayers are received in heaven and move Your heart.
