Or this is what the Lord Almighty says: "After He
has honored me and has sent me against the nations that have plundered
you - for whoever touches you touches the apple of His eye - I will
surely raise my hand against them so that their slaves will plunder
them. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me. Shout and
be glad, O Daughter of Zion...
Everything Christians do should be based upon the Biblical text.
Here are seven solid Biblereasons why Christians should support Israel.
- Genesis 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him
that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be
blessed." Point: God has promised to bless the man or nation that
blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt
that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the
blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have
experienced the curse of God.
- St. Paul recorded in Romans 15:27
"For if the Gentiles have shared in their (the Jews) spiritual things,
they are indebted to minister to them also in material things."
owe a debt of eternal gratitude to the Jewish people for their
contributions that gave birth to the Christian faith. Jesus Christ, a
prominent Rabbi from Nazareth said, "Salvation is of the Jews!" (St.
John 4:22) consider what the Jewish people have given to Christianity:
a) The Sacred Scripture
b) The Prophets
c) The Patriarchs
d) Mary, Joseph, and Jesus Christ of Nazareth
e) The Twelve Disciples
f) The Apostles
It is not possible to say, "I am a Christian" and not love the Jewish
people. The Bible teaches that love is not what you say, but what you
do. (1 John 3:18) "A bell is not a bell until you ring it, a song is
not a song until you sing it, love is not love until you share it."
While some Christians try to deny the connection between Jesus of
- Nazareth and the Jews of the world, Jesus never denied his Jewishness.
He was born Jewish, He was circumcised on the eighth day in keeping
with Jewish tradition, He had his Bar Mitzvah on his 13th birthday, He
kept the law of Moses, He wore the Prayer Shawl Moses commanded all
Jewish men to wear, He died on a cross with an inscription over His
head, "King of the Jews!"
Jesus considered the Jewish people His
family. Jesus said (Matthew 25:40) "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as
you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren (the Jewish
people… Gentiles were never called His brethren), ye have done it unto
- "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that
love thee." (Psalm 122:6) the scriptural principle of prosperity is
tied to blessing Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
- Why did
Jesus Christ go to the house of Cornelius in Capernaum and heal his
servant, which was ready to die? What logic did the Jewish elders use
with Jesus to convince Him to come into the house of a Gentile and
perform a miracle?
The logic they used is recorded in Luke 7:5;
"For He loveth our nation, and He hath built us a synagogue." The
message? This Gentile deserves the blessing of God because he loves our
nation and has done something practical to bless the Jewish people.
did God the Father select the house of Cornelius in Caesarea (Acts
Chapter 10) to be the first Gentile house in Israel to receive the
Gospel? The answer is given repeatedly in Acts 10.
Acts 10:2 "a
devout man, (Cornelius) and one that feared God with all his house,
which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always." Who were
the people to whom Cornelius gave these alms? They were the Jews!
Again is Acts 10:4 "… thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God."
Again in Acts 10:31 "… and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God."
point is made three times in the same chapter. A godly Gentile who
expressed his unconditional love for the Jewish people in a practical
manner was divinely selected by heaven to be the first Gentile house to
receive the Gospel and the first to receive the outpouring of the Holy
These combined Scriptures verify that PROSPERITY
(Genesis 12:3 and Psalm 122:6), HEALING (Luke 7:1-5) and the OUTPOURING
OF THE HOLY SPIRIT came first to Gentiles that blessed the Jewish
people and the nation of Israel in a practical manner.
support Israel because all other nations were created by an act of men,
but Israel was created by an act of God! The Royal Land Grant that was
given to Abraham and his seed through Isaac and Jacob with an
everlasting and unconditional covenant. (Genesis 12:1-3, 13:14-18,
15:1-21, 17:4-8, 22:15-18, 26:1-5 and Psalm 89:28-37.)
