Promise of a Nation Born in a Day
Isa.66:8 — “Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things?
Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be
born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.”
On May 14, 1948 Britain withdrew their mandate over Palestine and David
Ben-Gurion announced the formation of the new state of Israel, much to
the chagrin of the Arabs and other enemies of Israel, for a nation was
born in a day in spite of disappointments and delays and misinterpretations
of events for hundreds of years. After the prophecy was given millions of
people went to their graves never seeing Israel become a nation. But you
and I have seen it. Keep holding on to the word of the Lord. It does not fail.
Hab.2:3, Amp — “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time It
hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail. Even though it delays,
wait [patiently] for it, Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.”
