Preservation in the Midst of it all

Read 2 Kings 14

Highlights:

And the LORD said not that He would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but He saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash (II Kings 14:27).

The Lord has preserved His chosen people of Israel for thousands of years. The Covenant God made with Abraham has stood true through generation after generation. It will continue to do so through the end of all time as God continues offering redemption to the Jews as well as the gentiles.

Israel has come through many obstacles during the years since God chose Abraham. The nation has been in bondage to Egypt, Babylon, Medo-Persia and Rome. They have fought many wars, separated into two nations, seen droughts and famines and the people have been scattered all over the world.

Through all these trials and tribulations, God has protected His people. In contrast, many ancient world powers are not even thought of today. Though Israel was not united for a time, they were eventually reestablished as a nation.

We praise God that just like the people of Israel, believers in Jesus are now part of the chosen of God. 

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light (I Pet. 2:9). 

God has extended the same love to the gentile that He did to Abraham and His descendants. God through the sacrifice of Jesus has now made a covenant with us to become His children. We are grafted into the vine to become part of God’s family.

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me (John 15:4)
