Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem~Countdown to Exodus
Moses In The Tents of Jethro

Even this brief incident in Scripture has been the subject of Fine Art.

The Second Book of Moses, called
EXODUS
Chapter 18

18:1 When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father in law,
heard of all that God had done for Moses,
and for Israel his people, and that the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt;
18:2 Then Jethro, Moses' father in law,
took Zipporah, Moses' wife,
after he had sent her back,
18:3 And her two sons;
of which the name of the one was Gershom;
for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:
18:4 And the name of the other was Eliezer;
for the God of my father, said he, was mine help,
and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:
18:5 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness,
where he encamped at the mount of God:
18:6 And he said unto Moses, I thy father in law Jethro am come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.
18:7 And Moses went out to meet his father in law,
and did obeisance, and kissed him;
and they asked each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent.
18:8 And Moses told his father in law all that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake,
and all the travail that had come upon them by the way,
and how the LORD delivered them.
18:9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the LORD had done to Israel,
whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.
18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD,
who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians,
and out of the hand of Pharaoh,
who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.
18:11 Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods:
for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.
18:12 And Jethro, Moses' father in law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God:
and Aaron came,
and all the elders of Israel,
to eat bread with Moses' father in law before God.
18:13 And it came to pass on the morrow,
that Moses sat to judge the people:
and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening.

A little stop on Our Journey Through Exodus, In The Tents Of Jethro.

But even these few seemingly ordinary lines have Treasures to be Found!

Amen to your Wonderful Prayer, Dear Sister Left!
Standing with you in Prayers and Support for Israel.

'True, Many Nations have Gathered Together Against you, Calling for your Blood, Eager to Destroy you.
But they do not Know My Thoughts nor Understand My Plan,
For the Time will Come when the Lord will Gather Together the Enemies of His People like Sheaves upon the Threshing Floor,
Helpless before Israel.
Rise, Thresh, O Daughter of Zion; I will Give you Horns of Iron, and Hoofs of Brass
Until you Trample to Pieces Many People,
And you will Give their Wealth as Offerings to the Lord,
The Lord of All the Earth.' (Micah.4:11-13)

Oh MY!

Micah!

I will have to go there after Passover.

The Holy Bible talks about Jerusalem on nearly every page.

The you-know-what never mentions it ONCE.

Just sayin’.

Thank you, Kitty Mittens for your Blessed Prayers for The peace of Jerusalem, For Israel, and for God’s People.

“18:10 And Jethro said, Blessed be the LORD,
who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians,
and out of the hand of Pharaoh,
who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.
18:11 Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods:
for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.
18:12 And Jethro, Moses’ father in law, took a burnt offering and sacrifices for God:...”

Mark 12: 12-13

"29.And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

30.And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

31.And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.”
__________________________________________________________

O worthy, Holy Father, great are thou. excellent and majesty are You, We humbly bow down before you in gratitude and with thankful heart, magnificent are your works. We come in praise and worship, asking forgiveness for the sins we have committed before you. Against You and You only we have sinned. We come in repentance ans asking favor on the ones believing in You, and for the ones that do not know You. Draw them to come, let us speak of Your greatness to all we meet. Bless America, Israel, and Your people where ever they are. Thank you, Father that you hear our prayer. Nothing is impossible to You. Of ourselves we can do nothing. We call on You for Grace and Mercy. In Jesus name. amen.

Indeed!

And From an Earlier description we know that Jethro was a “High Priest of the Midianites”, which means he was originally a worshiper of a host of desert gods and goddesses. So THIS encounter was a REAL MOMENT OF TRUTH for him!

Amazing how this brief passage of Scripture has SO MUCH to offer us!
