Jerusalem flag

Listen, Israel. Stand your ground.

If you’ve been watching the news at all, you know that there was a bombing in downtown Jerusalem. I can tell you roughly where it happened. The one dead and 39 injured were standing next to a Route 74 bus. Flag of Jerusalem, City of David, City of the KingI took that route often to and from my room in Abu Tor, to and from the shuk (the outdoor market).

At Justice House of Pray – El Paso, we pray for Israel every Thursday morning. Last week, the Holy Spirit gave me a prophetic word as I was singing. I jotted some words and the chords I was using.

Today, we’re supposed to pray for the marketplace. The news of the bombing was fresh on my mind, so I interceded for Israel instead. And the Holy Spirit told me to look at last week’s scribblings.

Soon, the words were flowing from my pen. I had to ask the Lord help with the melody, but it’s less about that. The words do have their basis in the Bible: Isaiah 40:27-41 and Isaiah 22:20-24, just to start.

First, a short Hebrew lesson: sh’ma = listen (see Deuternomy 6:4-9); Elayakim is the good steward of Isaiah 22. He is a picture of Messiah. His name means “God will raise up.”

This is meant to be an encouragement to Israel, so feel free to share it.

 

 

Listen, Israel. Stand your ground

by Cariño Casas

Sh’ma, Yisrael

Persevere, sons of Jacob

Stand your ground

Stand your ground

Wait on the LORD

You must keep running

You will not faint

You will not faint

Sh’ma, Yisrael

Stand your ground

Hold on to the Land

It’s for your King

Be a good steward

Like Elyakim

Wait on the LORD

You will not faint

Take heart, Yisrael

I know it’s been a long time

Your King is coming

Sh’ma, Yisrael
