Ezekiel 34:30 (ESV) … “And they shall know that I am the LORD their God with them, and that they, the house of Israel, are my people, declares the Lord GOD.”
God’s care and protection will result in peace for His people. I will make a covenant of peace with them. The peace that Israel has always longed for will be experienced. The uncertainties associated with desolate places, wild animals, other nations, and unpredictable weather will be alleviated. The land will enjoy peace and prosperity. Trees will bear fruit and the ground will yield its crops, and the people will be secure in their land, living in safety.
God’s “covenant of peace” looks forward to the blessings Israel will experience in the Millennium. This covenant will establish Israel in her land permanently with David as her shepherd. Later Ezekiel stated that the covenant of peace will also involve the rebuilding of God’s temple as a visible reminder of His presence (37:26–28).
God will restore Israel because of her unique relationship to Him. You My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, are My people, and I am your God.
In Christ & Friends Always,
