Yesha, Israel

Posted: September 3, 2010 in Israel Study

Have you wondered where Yesha, Israel is located? Yesha is a Hebrew acronym for “Judea, Samaria Gaza” (Yehuda Shomron ‘Azza) , the land that was returned to the Jewish people in the Six Day War. It represented the land of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but  now used as the name of the resettlement of Jews in the area of the West Bank.

Ezekiel 36:1, “Son of man prophesy to the mountains of Israel and say…’O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord!” In Vs 2 they are called the ancient heights. Read the whole chapter that preceeds the Gog & Magog chapters of 38 & 39.

What is the West Bank? The West Bank is Judea & Samaria. The West Bank and the mountains of Israel are almost identical and contain all the altars made to the LORD by Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The West Bank contains the cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Bethany, Hebron, Ai, Bethel, Shilo and Shechem. All these cities were in the Mountains of Israel, the Land that was Promised to the Hebrew people by God Himself. Genesis 13:17; Genesis 15:18; 17:19; 28:3-4; 28:13; Joshua 15; Romans 11:29.

Numbers 34:2, “This is the land that shall fall to you as an inheritance.”

Israel is 9 miles wide at its narrowest point and 290 miles long, yet it is a stumbling block for all the nations of the world. Zechariah 12:3. . The settlers in Yesha are risking their very lives to live in their inherited land. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for all Israel.

Ezekiel 36:7, “Therefore thus says the LORD God; “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear thier own shame.” (when God raises His hand in an oath, He is swearing an oath that cannot be taken back)
