Only God’s hand saw them through. Today, Saturday and Sunday people alike trust that His power and glory will shield them yet again – accompanied by the sounds of their praise and celebration. The promises spoken by the Prophet Ezekiel offer the people of God even greater hope for tomorrow: I will now restore the fortunes of Jacob and will have compassion on all the people of Israel… When I have brought them back from the nations and have gathered them from the countries of their enemies… they will know that I am the Lord their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind. I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit on the people of Israel, declares the Sovereign Lord.”(Ez. 39:25-29).
