America is at a crossroads. Will we believe God’s word and stand by
Israel, or will we equivocate and support Israel’s sworn enemies?
We Christians owe a debt of eternal gratitude to the Jewish people.
They gave us the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. They gave us
the prophets—Isaiah, Daniel, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, etc. They gave us
the Virgin Mary and the just and kind Joseph. They gave us the
twelve apostles and the Apostle Paul. Most of all, they gave us the
It was God who said He would bless those who bless Israel, and He
would curse those who curse Israel.
Jesus went to the house of a centurion and healed his servant who
was dying because it was said of the centurion, “He loves our nation
and he has built us a synagogue.” The blessing of life followed.
God selected the house of Cornelius to be the first Gentile family
to receive the gospel because “he was a devout man, and one that
feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people.”
Those people were Jews. Great blessings came to that house.
America was blessed greatly for standing up for the Jewish people in
1948, when the UN granted Israel statehood. Two hours after the UN
action, five armies attacked tiny Israel, but miraculously, Israel
was victorious. America was blamed for that defeat.
In 1967, Israel was again attacked by an overwhelming force, but
when the dust had cleared, Israel had won that war, also, and once
more America was hated for befriending Israel.
That hatred intensified over the following years, until one Tuesday
morning on September 11, 2001, 19 men from another country
commandeered commercial airplanes and flew them into the Twin
Towers, the Pentagon, and intended to hit either the Capitol
Building or the White House with a fourth plane.
3052 people were killed on 9/11, eighteen years ago this week. It
is still true; those who go against Israel are going against God.
That never ends well.
Iran, be warned; nations, take note; America, stand with Israel..
