WILL GOD AVENGE HIS PEOPLE?
God's Prayer Power - Session 10
Our verse today is: Joel 3:20-21
"My people will live in Judah and Jerusalem forever.The land will be their home for all time to come. Egypt and Edom have spilled my people’s blood. Should I let them escape my judgment? No, I will not.” The Lord lives in Zion!
What is God saying?
In the Berean Study Bible, Joel 3: 19-21 talks about Blessings for God' people. The verse reads:"…19 Egypt will become desolate, and Edom a desert wasteland, because of the violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood. 20 But Judah will be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21 For I will avenge their blood, which I have not yet avenged.” For the LORD dwells in Zion.…"
The tribe of Judah ( Judah was a son of Jacob) settled in the region south of Jerusalem and in time became the most powerful and most important tribe. Not only did it produce the great kings David and Solomon but also, it was prophesied, the Messiah would come from among its members.
Why is Egypt and Edom going to become desolate, a wasteland?
May God bless you and your family this week.
