In today's verse, Micah the Morashite reveals God's promise of hope and salvation to the people of Israel; that in their time of suffering, they will surely see miracles just as their ancestors experienced at the time of the Exodus when God performed countless marvelous wonders before bringing them to the Land of Israel. Hundreds of years later, we see the fulfillment of God's promise in every day miracles, such as the establishment of the State of Israel and the worldwide phenomenon of aliyah (moving to Israel). Fifty years ago, God revealed His strong hand when, after 6 days of intense battle, the Israeli Defense Forces were victorious over their numerous enemies and reconquered Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria and brought it under Jewish control once again. This year, we are rejoicing the Golden Jubilee Anniversary since this miraculous victory with parties galore!
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem. This historic occasion is being called 'Jerusalem's Golden Jubilee." In 1967, with the help of God, Israel arose victorious from the Six Day War. It was as a result of this victory, that that Israel was once again able to gain sovereignty over the entire city of Jerusalem. Watch these moving clips of the IDF moving into and taking control of the Old City of Jerusalem in 1967.
IDF soldiers pray at the Western Wall mirroring their predecessors who, after 6 days in heated battle, recaptured the holy site and brought it back under Jewish control for the first time in approximately 2,000 years. Fifty years later, we rejoice over the IDF victory by celebrating Jerusalem's Golden Jubilee.
Just to say I hope to return to your great country and stunning capital Jerusalem this year. I read today in the small print in the news that by the year 2070 the false religion of Islam will overtake Christian believers in the world, what a worry I pray our God and Lord will stop this trend, real worry. As always I pray for you, God chosen people and Israel. God Bless Israel. --David Boam UK
