Call upon the Name of the Lord

Call upon the Name of the Lord     Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21

Psalms 57:1-6 Lord, be gracious to us, we who make You our refuge.  We trust in Your protection until the disaster has passed.  When we call upon the Name of the Lord to save us, He will send from heaven angels to protect us and our enemies will be brought low. They have many weapons and have prepared a trap – dug a pit, but they themselves will fall into it.  Psalms 7:12-16

Psalms 56:3-7 In the Day of terror, I will put my trust in You – the Most High, in God whose promise is my boast, in God shall I trust and I shall not be afraid. What can mortals do? Constantly they speak against us and plan destruction for Your people, in malice they band together and watch for any opportunity to harm us. We cannot avoid their harassment, their devious and wicked ways. God; in Your anger, destroy those evil nations. Psalms 9:17, Ezekiel 32:20-30

Psalms 56:8-13 Lord, You note our grief, our tears are recorded.  You will repulse our enemies on the Day that we call to You.  Lord, we are Your people, bound to You by our Covenant, you will rescue us from death, in Your power we will walk in the light of life.Psalms 18:28

In the first Exodus of the Israelites, they were tasked to conquer and destroy the heathen occupiers of the holy Land.  They failed to completely clear the Land, Judges 1:19-36, but the Lord used their successes and failures as lessons for them and us, 1 Corinthians 10:11, but because of their sins, the Lord used other nations to conquer and exile them.  Now, Judah is back, but in unbelief and they will be judged along with all the attackers of Israel. Amos 1 & 2:1-6

It will not be like that again for the great Exodus of the faithful Christian Israelites, as they gather and settle into their heritage of all the holy Land.  Psalms 60:1-5 There will not be any ungodly people left surrounding the new nation of Beulah, Isaiah 62:1-5, because the Lord Himself will ‘bring our enemies low’. Amos 5:9, Isaiah 34:2

Many prophecies say how all of that area promised to Abraham, so long ago, will be cleared and cleansed by a ‘Day of terror and disaster’, and all those ‘evil neighbours’, Jeremiah 12:14, will be gone.  Then, ‘by the Lords wrath, He will bring His people out from the nations’  Ezekiel 20:33-38, Ezekiel 34:11-31 and ‘in the Lord’s power, we will walk in the Light of Life’.  Isaiah 9:2-3

God be exalted above the heavens, let Your glory be over all the earth.
