Prophetic word for Israel
This morning in the news I read this
Criticism of Netanyahu.
Lapid is especially popular with secular, middle-class voters, especially in the Tel Aviv region. He wants to limit the influence of religious authorities in daily life, and sharply criticizes the close ties between Netanyahu and his ultra-Orthodox allies.

Abba had pointed me to Jeremiah 6:16 before I even read this!
Israel has a special task. It is HIS land, HIS people. Israel needs to shine HIS light to the Nations!***
A house is built by wisdom.
In the Bible, Solomon says something important in Ecclesiastes 10:10 "If the iron is blunt, and he does not sharpen the cut, then he must apply more force; but wisdom is useful for aiming."
Orthodox Jewish Bible
1 Do not be envious of anshei ra'ah, nor desire to be with them.
2 For their lev plots violence, and their sphatayim (lips) speak of amal (trouble).
3 By chochmah a bais is built, and by tevoenah (insight) it is established.
4 And by da'as the chadarim (rooms, quarters) will be filled with all precious and pleasant honors (wealth, opulence).
5 A giver chacham is strong; indeed, an ish da'as (man of knowledge) multiplies ko'ach.
6 For by tachbulot (guidance) you shall make your milchamah (war), and in a multitude of yo'etz (counselors) there is teshu'ah (victory, security)
Precepts and Warnings
1 Do not be envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them;
2 For their minds plot violence, and their lips talk of trouble [for the innocent].
3Through [skillful and godly] wisdom a house [a life, a home, a family] is built,
And by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation],
4 And by knowledge its rooms are filled. With all precious and pleasant riches.
5 A wise man is strong, and a man of knowledge strengthens his power.
6 For by wise guidance you can wage your war. And in an abundance of [wise] counselors there is victory and safety.
Thus, saith the Lord:
A Nation built without MY voice is built on quicksand. Nothing is certain nothing is permanent, until it is built on the rock!
You people are stiff-necked. I don't want slaves who feel compelled to walk My -narrow- path, but who love Me enough to trust Me enough to say,
Let us go to the (crossroads), and look, and ask for the netivot olam (old paths), where is the derech hatov (good road, way)
Not human traditions,
but MY ways and My commands,
and advisors who HEAR MY VOICE!
Book of Yirmeyah 16 Thus saith Hashem, Stand ye in the derakhim (crossroads), and look, and ask for the netivot olam (old paths), where is the derech hatov (good road, way), and walk therein, and ye shall find margo'a (rest) for your nefashot. But they said, we will not walk therein.
17 Also I set tzofim (watchmen) over you, saying, Pay heed to the kol shofar (sound of the shofar). But they said, we will not pay heed.
Jeremiah 16: 16
This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask for the ancient paths: ‘Where is the good way?’ Then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it!’ 17 I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen for the sound of the ram’s horn.’ But they answered, ‘We will not listen!’…
0 Arise, shine; for thy [Tziyon’s] ohr is come, and the kavod Hashem is risen upon thee.
2 For, hinei, the choshech shall cover Eretz, and gross darkness the nations; but Hashem shall arise upon thee, and His kavod shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Goyim shall walk by thy ohr, and melachim by the brightness of thy shining.
Isaiah 60 1 "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
*** Not only in Israel, but in all nations, HIS voice is so desperately needed.
