Why Yah will never forsake the people he considers his own.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. The people of Israel are Yah’s treasure. We are told this in several Scripture verses. But since becoming a nation many, many centuries ago, we have suffered greatly due to rebellion and sin. The same is true today, as many Israelites remain asleep and oblivious to who they are and what their true purpose is.
Nonetheless, what has always been the case—since Israel became a nation long ago, even to this very day—is this: despite our open rebellion against Yah as a people, which has caused him to withdraw from us from time to time, he has never completely forsaken us, nor will he ever do so. The reason for this is quite simple: he made the people of Israel and chose them for a purpose, and until that great purpose is lived out and served, Yah’s will and true desire cannot be satisfied.
The prophet Samuel said it best when he addressed the Israel of his day as follows:
20 And Samuel said to the people, Do not be afraid; you have done all this evil. Yet do not turn aside from following Yah, but serve Yah with all your heart. 21 And do not turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver, for they are empty. 22 For Yah will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased Yah to make you a people for himself.
—1 Samuel 12:20 – 22
