In a world where headlines often echo narratives against the nation of Israel, Christians are called to discern the biblical significance of standing alongside God's chosen people. Recent events, marked by global protests and skewed media narratives, reveal a disturbing turn against Israel, raising concerns among believers.
As tensions escalate, it's crucial for Christians to understand the underlying biblical principles that underscore the importance of supporting Israel. The Christian response to the ongoing narrative shift plays a pivotal role in upholding Scriptural truths and countering misconceptions.
At the core of Christian belief lies the understanding that Jesus' sacrifice fulfilled the Mosaic covenant, providing salvation from sin and death. However, the Abrahamic covenant, as outlined in Genesis 12:1-3, remains a distinct promise:
"Now the Lord said to Abram, 'Go from your country, your family, and your father's house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless them who bless you and curse him who curses you, and in you, all families of the earth will be blessed.'"
What many Christians are not understanding is that if you are not of Abrahamic descent, then you are not a part of this covenant. Which is OK, because there are other ways for God to bless believers in His Son, Jesus Christ.
This Scriptural foundation reinforces the divine directive for Christians to support Israel. While criticism and disagreement may arise, the biblical call to be a steadfast friend, offering support even in challenging times, becomes paramount.
The America First movement, rooted in patriotism, must recognize that the restoration of the nation involves more than national pride. A corporate turning toward God and a commitment to supporting Israel align with the biblical promise of blessings for those who stand by His chosen people.
If you want to make America great again, then it begins with repentance and bringing God back into the fold of America society.
Amid the complexities of geopolitics and shifting alliances, Christians are reminded to delve into the biblical truths regarding Israel. The pages of the Bible contain prophecies and promises concerning Israel's restoration, underscoring the danger of biblical illiteracy in contemporary society.
The urgent call to open the Bible echoes in a time marked by compromise and diluted adherence to God's principles. A clarion call to the faithful to immerse themselves in Scripture becomes essential, challenging believers to withstand the pressures of societal changes and apostasy.
Embrace the strength provided by the Holy Spirit, read the Bible and discern the critical importance of supporting the nation of Israel. In a world accelerating toward unknown horizons, a biblical lens offers unparalleled clarity and insight, guiding Christians through these unprecedented times.
