NKJV Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day
December 29
Ezekiel 34:12
“12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock on the day he is among his scattered sheep, so will I seek out My sheep and deliver them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day.”
Read Ezekiel 34

    • Amen Todd! Indeed a great Text from our great God and Shepherd! And this is actually in context toward God’s Remnant in Israel.

      • You bet! I get excited every time I see more Jews returning to Israel. Prophecy is literally coming true during my lifetime. The Bible is certainly True. Fr. Robert I appreciate your love for Israel, God’s chosen people through Abraham. I believe only God can put that love into one’s heart.

      • Yes Todd, God’s great revelation of His Chosen & Covenant People of Israel (Romans 3, and chapters 9 thru 11) has been the pinnacle of understanding God’s Word and Revelation, at least in time and His biblical economy in time and creation. This is why Biblical Prophecy is so important! And here too we must always look at Jesus Christ our Lord, King and Messiah, i.e. the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords! Paul loves to use the great title and moniker of “Israel” for all the redeemed, “especially to those who are of the household of the faith.” (Gal. 6: 10, with verses 14-16) with the Faith of Abraham! (Romans 4: 11-12) Paul weaves all of this language in his Letters, but again especially in Ephesians, for both Jews and Gentiles, but it always comes out of our “commonwealth of Israel”, and “the covenants of promise” (Eph. 2: 12 -18, with verses 19-22). I can hardly grasp it all, and oh yes, excitement but spiritual excitement, as Jesus said in “Spirit and Truth”! (John 4: 22-24) ‘In Christ’! Wow!

      • Paul uses both the dispensational with the spiritual, to express God’s Revelation ‘In Christ!

      • Fr. Robert, that is a great summary resource you just laid out. That belongs in a commentary. Thank you for a grand entry point to deep-dive this most central topic. Excellent!

      • Todd: This all came from my heart & mind! But, yes, I am a reader of both the Word and Ministry! Btw, most of the men I read are before the Throne now! Thanks for the kind words!

        Blessings mate!
