A Future and A Hope
Are you familiar with this encouraging verse?
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NASB)
Did you know that God made that promise to a specific group of people? Jeremiah 29 is a letter the prophet wrote to the exiles of Judah in the land of Babylon. His intent was to encourage them to settle down and pray and work for the peace of the nation in which they lived, knowing that at the appointed time God would return them to the land of Israel. He fulfilled that promise to the Jewish exiles in Babylon, and He is fulfilling that promise to the scattered people of Judah today. That’s why we should all hope expectantly for His fulfillment of His promises to regather all the nation of Israel, including the dispersed non-Jewish tribes of the House of Israel.
Moshe and Leah Goldsmith have been living out that hope for much of their lives. These founders of the Itamar community in Shomron (Samaria) return to The Remnant Road to share with us news from the Promised Land. Mike and Hanoch visited them earlier this month with during the most recent Connect to Israel Tour. Much has happened in Itamar since our last conversation with the Goldsmiths several months ago. Join us to learn the latest developments and their expectations for the coming year!
