The space of time between the Old and the New Testament is called by many "The 400 years of Silence", but it was far from it. The people of Israel fasted, prayed, believed, and hoped for God to send their Messiah for thousands of years. But in that 400 years of time or during the wait, they lost focus and couldn't see their promise standing right in front of them. What are believing God for? How you handle The Wait will always determine how you receive His promise.
