The Lyrics for Rejoice O Israel, a song of prayer for Israel, Jerusalem and God’s people written by Karen Lim from the New Creation Worship in Singapore.
This song is inspired by Psalm 122:6-7.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. 7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.Psalm 122:6-7
As the church awaits the return of Jesus Christ, we continue to pray for peace in Jerusalem and Israel. We pray that our Heavenly Father’s favour shine upon the nation of Israel.
Lyrics for Rejoice O Israel
I behold a city on a hill A nation torn by war But in that place Adonai says His grace has been poured forth I behold a people Who are waiting for their Lord For He will come with trumpets sound As nations watched in awe Shalom Jerusalem Messiah will come He wiped away your tears and pains Rejoice Daughter of Zion Shalom Jerusalem He's deep within your walls Yeshua will return to reign In majesty and power I behold a people Who are waiting for their Lord For He will come with trumpets sound As nations watched in awe Shalom Jerusalem Messiah will come He wiped away your tears and pains Rejoice Daughter of Zion Shalom Jerusalem He's deep within your walls Yeshua will return to reign In majesty and power Then we see The Son of God Descending from the clouds He will be a radiant light shining glorious and bright on New Jerusalem Shalom Jerusalem Messiah will come He wiped away your tears and pains Rejoice Daughter of Zion Shalom Jerusalem He's deep within your walls Yeshua will return to reign In majesty and power
May this song reminds me that God is faithful and His promises stand forever.
A Shoutout for One For Israel
Since 1990, a group of native-born Israelis who had encountered Jesus are bringing the Gospel Light back to Israel again. Using innovative methods and technologies, ONE FOR ISRAEL is sending God’s Word out again from Zion throughout the world proclaiming the Gospel of Messiah.
I first encountered ONE FOR ISRAEL through a series of video testimonies of Messianic Jews meeting Messiah. The testimonies are now collected at https://www.oneforisrael.org/met-messiah-jewish-testimonies/
The way Jesus came to them was so touching, so compelling. One common theme was all the falsehood about Jesus and the New Testament that were taught to them. Many of them shared that reading Isaiah 53 from the Old Testament was the turning point.
53 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
