The Apple of His Eye

God is jealous over his people, Israel.  They are the apple of his eye. Woe unto the nations and people that spoil them!

For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. — Zechariah 2:8

Think of what it means for an apple to spoil.  It starts as a small blemish and turns to rotten, through and through. At the early stages you can cut out the bad part, but later the whole apple has to go.

The world seems to be against Israel, and Israel has few friends. Woe unto the nations and people that spoil them! What about your nation? Is it a friend or foe of Israel? Are you praying for Israel?

God bless, Mike
