I think this is the first time I'm not really inspired at all to write anything.
This is frustrating because I can tell there's a lot of meat to this chapter. I guess it's partially because I really am not into the whole "gathering of Israel" thing. That's horrible to say because it's such an integral part of the whole plan of salvation, but, it's true.
Let's see here... There's got to be something in here to write about.
Verse 11 has something which has interested me for a bit. It states "and many shall not be suffered to perish because of the prayers of the faithful
". In various places
within scripture, it states that by the prayers of the righteous, such and such will happen.
I personally believe that the prayers of the prophets (in accordance with the foreknowledge of God) shape the earth's history and future.
That's about it for today.
