Who do you serve?
Luke 16:13-15

 "No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. And He [Jesus Christ] said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.


When I fear my faith will fail

1. When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me last;
When the tempter would prevail,
He can hold me fast…

He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

2. I could never keep my hold,
He will hold me fast;
For my love is often cold,
He must hold me fast…

3. I am precious in His sight,
He will hold me fast;
Those He saves are His delight,
He will hold me fast…

4. He'll not let my soul be lost,
Christ will hold me fast,
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast…

God's context of 7 October 2023, Israel

For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
They have said, "Come, and let us wipe the out [cut them off] from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more!"

The response of the psalmist: Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! 

It should not be surprising, although it fills all rational people with horror, the enemies of God want Israel to be eliminated. We weep alongside the Israelis and the other nationalities whose loved ones were murdered on 7 October 2023, as they mourn. Our hearts are troubled and full of sorrow. The images of the atrocities of torture, rape and slaughter disturb each of us deeply. We pray for the kidnapped, and their families; we seek from Jehovah His wisdom for the leaders of Israel. Satan’s grip on Israel’s enemies is apparent, but foretold some nearly 3 millennia ago.

Here in the time of David the godly remnant pray speaking of invading terrorists as "God’s enemies", and thus calling upon the Jehovah to deal with them. The object of these enemies is to cut Israel off from being a nation; to rid the earth of them. They remind the Lord of what He did with Israel’s former enemies and treat them likewise, so that Jehovah may become the Most High (God’s millennial Name) over all the earth. God still has this object in focus and Satan is determined to thwart it; but he will fail. Israel needs to put their faith and trust in Yeshua, their Messiah.
