British Prime Minister Theresa May took part in the 75th D-Day memorial service in France this morning, reading a Scripture during the ceremony.
Mrs May read a favourite Scripture of CUFI’s mentioning, “The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem”.
The Scripture talks about peace in the end times, clearly showing that “Jerusalem” and “Zion” are relevant to God past, present and future. It is also written from Israel’s perspective and speaks of how nations will “walk in the name of their gods” whilst Israel will “walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever”.
We know that Israel and Zionism are at the heart of the Bible and are visible in every page, however, it is quite special that this Scripture was chosen to commemorate D-Day.
We pray that Britain and her future Prime Ministers will also “walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever”.
The clip of Mrs May reading the Scripture can be viewed below:
Here is the full Scripture that the Prime Minister read:
The Mountain of the Lord
4 In the last days
the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
as the highest of the mountains;
it will be exalted above the hills,
and peoples will stream to it.
2 Many nations will come and say,
“Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
to the temple of the God of Jacob.
He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths.”
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
3 He will judge between many peoples
and will settle disputes for strong nations far and wide.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
4 Everyone will sit under their own vine
and under their own fig tree,
and no one will make them afraid,
for the Lord Almighty has spoken.
5 All the nations may walk
in the name of their gods,
but we will walk in the name of the Lord
our God for ever and ever.
