ALIYAH

Aliyah means = People returning to Israel

This is a wonderful book I read several months ago and just now getting around to sharing here on my blog.

I have been walking through a time of learning more about our Jewish roots. What an exciting walk this has been ...... and IS! I am far from finished and enjoying every minute of it.

"Aliyah" is the history of God calling forth His people from the various parts of the world where He had scattered them due to their disobedience. This could not, and did not, occur until after Israel became a nation in 1948. It started then and is continuing unto this day.

The thing that moved me the most about reading this book was I came to realize the love God, the Father, has for the LAND itself. The actual, physical land. Because God made man from the dust of the earth that very dust/land is most precious to HIM. I have always understood that the land belonged to the Jewish people, because God had given it to them, but I did not understand, until reading this book, how important it was to God to have his creation back on THIS very soil.

If you are interested in our Jewish roots I would highly recommend this book.

Israel is a fascinating topic. I spent quite a bit of time on it in my study in the book of Romans lately. Glad you enjoyed it.

Susan, that is a very interesting piece of wisdom, I have never looked at God's love in that way. We truly try to put Him in our own little box until someone else brings him out!! Thanks a bunch
