 Day 14 (May 20) - Isaiah 62 Fast


“And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My covenant with them,
when I take away their sins.’ Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but
concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the
calling of God are irrevocable.” Romans 11:26–29 NKJV

All Israel will be saved! What a massive statement! The salvation of the whole
nation of Israel is part of God’s covenant with them. God ensures that all
will be saved, not only a remnant. This is a special promise to Israel that is part of
God’s covenant; not all nations will be entirely saved.

God has not given up on His firstborn people. He is forever faithful to His covenant
with them. He knows that the outcome will be glorious. God has prepared a most
emotional reconciliation between Israel and His Son, Jesus, and following it, an
extraordinary salvation! They will see the one they pierced (Zechariah 12:10).

The apostle Paul states that they are—temporarily—enemies of the gospel, but
concerning the election they are beloved. Their opposition does not cancel God’s sovereign choice. Israel remains the beloved chosen people for the sake of their
fathers. The gifts and calling of God for Israel are irrevocable because His covenants
remain forever. The unfaithfulness and unbelief of Israel do not cancel her
gifts and calling. This promise pertains initially and primarily to Israel, and not
firstly to a minister in crisis.

The certainty of Israel’s salvation at the end of the story should not lure the
Church into the snare of inaction. It is essential to reach out to the Jewish people
and share the gospel with them, even if it is not welcomed at first. It is important
to pray for supernatural revelation of Jesus, visions, and angelic visitations. It is
reported that, as in the Muslim world, many Jews are drawn to their Messiah
through dreams and other supernatural activities. (Note: In this passage, apostle
Paul is referring to Isaiah 59:20–21 and Jeremiah 31:31–34.)


Our Father,

We bless Your holy name. We praise You for guaranteeing the salvation of
all Israel at the end of the story. We worship You for Your faithfulness to Your
covenants. We celebrate You for preparing the reconciliation of Israel with Your
Son, Jesus. We love You for not giving up on Israel despite her unfaithfulness
and unbelief. It gives us hope for our own lives and boldness to pray for the
Jewish people. We pray for the salvation of all Israel. Standing on Your promise,
we agree with You and ask that You save all Israel. We pray that the current
generation will see what Jesus has done for her, accept the forgiveness of her
sins, and be saved. We pray for God to send laborers into this harvest field. We
pray for You to strengthen and anoint the messianic remnant in Israel who face
much pressure for sharing the good news with their Israeli compatriots. We pray
that the Body of Christ will understand the gifts and calling of God for Israel. We
pray that the worldwide Church will acknowledge that these are irrevocable and
draw the right conclusions concerning her relationship with Israel.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.


Day 14 (Day 44 of the Omer, 20 May 2023) Verse 12(a)

“And they shall call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord…”

God of Compassion, when You move in power, You do not exclude the weak and needy or those who are marginalized by men. The weak and needy in Zion, including the disenfranchised, shall also be called “Holy” and “Redeemed of the Lord.” I lift to Your throne of grace each of the weak and needy in Israel: the many peaceable but wrongly suffering Israeli Arab, Druze, and Bedouin peoples; the poor; widows and orphans; the unborn, especially those about to be aborted; the elderly, the sick, injured and handicapped; those in prison; victims of terror or war and their families; Messianic Jews who are persecuted for their faith; and others for whom You have great compassion. Merciful Redeemer, Your irrevocable gifts and calling on Israel include the weak and needy among her. Encourage them that despite their plight, they shall be a holy people, redeemed of the Lord. Draw near to each in their distress and soothe them by Your Spirit. Vindicate their cause. Deliver them from their oppressors and heal their wounds. In Yeshua’s Name, let justice from heaven roll forth as a river on behalf of those grieving in Zion. Reveal to them Your Salvation. I declare over the weak and needy what You have decreed for them in Your Word: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Forgive us, O God, to the extent we have neglected the weak and the needy. Show us how to care for their needs and how to strengthen them. Provide for us the resources necessary to attain social justice in Israel. Transform us together as we become, by Your covenant mercy and grace, “The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord.” Thank You for receiving my petition in the courts of heaven and showing Yourself strong on our behalf.
