"...I will make Yerushalayim a stone of burden for all the peoples..." - ISRAEL365
And it shall come to pass in that day that I will make Yerushalayim a stone of burden for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it.
Zechariah prophesies about a future attack against Judah by the nations of the world. In that attack, the nations will besiege Jerusalem only to be miraculously defeated by Judah. God states that Jerusalem will become “a stone of burden,” and “all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded.” In ancient times, the stone of burden was a heavy rock that lay in a field. Farmers who wished to plough the field had to remove the rock with great effort, often cutting themselves futilely. On one level, this means that the nations of the world that try to remove Judah and Jerusalem will fail. Spiritually, Jerusalem and Israel symbolize God and His word. Taking on Jerusalem forces the nations to contend with goodness and prevents them from succeeding. Today, God empowers the Israeli Defense Forces to the protector and defender of the Land of Israel and her inhabitants. While the Israeli army is constantly training and learning new techniques, there is no question that its miraculous victories are the result of the Hand of God.
For the first time in Israel’s history, top surgeons throughout Israel and the Israel Defense Force (IDF) gathered to learn a new medical technique which stops bleeding in cases of trauma without an incision.
Roman glass jewelry is a type of jewelry that incorporates both beauty and history. Unlike pottery and stone, glass is not a material commonly associated with ancient societies, but in fact it was highly popular and widely produced in the Roman Empire. These stunning pieces of Roman glass were excavated during archaeological digs across Israel. By wearing these beautiful earrings, you are reviving 2,000 years of Jewish History!

I'm so honored to be a part of Israel 365. I pray everyday for protection of her and her people. She will triumph! I'm from Conway, Pennsylvania. My name is Nancy . My mom is with the Lord now, she loved him so much and Thanks to her brought me up to love him too . My son was friends with a elderly couple that he helped out , the Josephson's, and when they went back to Israel they planted a date tree in her memory . My son John Michael was taught so much by them when he moved to Kansas and took him under their wing which helped him become a witness to everyone he comes in contact with. I'm so honored to say I'm his mom. She never had children so I shared him and said he could be her spiritual mother and I his earthly mom. She was so happy. They have went home with the Lord now but will always be in our hearts . God Bless you and keep you. Yours Truly --Nancy Knox
