Israel

0216170724Prayed for Israel at IHOP (International House of Prayer), was there for 6 hours, I added my voice to hundreds of others praying for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6). That salvation would come to all of Israel, that the scripture would be fulfilled that says “all of Israel will be saved” (Romans 11:26). That the chosen ones of God, His people the Jews, that His land, nation’s eyes would be open to see the Messiah Yeshua. That the Holy Spirit would be released to open their eye to see Yeshua. That He would release a burning passionate love for Yeshua. I have a great love for Israel, for the Jewish people, because it is both my roots, my people, as well as a mandate to every believer to Love and pray for Israel and God’s chosen people the Jews.

My act of love today was praying for Israel in love for her and the Jewish people.

israel-flag There are more Bible reasons why Christians should support Israel than I could list in this post (100’s of verses), being one with Jewish roots does give me both prejudice, a bias as well as possessing intimate knowledge on this subject.

But simplify we will take the verse found in Genesis 12:3
"And I will bless those that bless you and curse the one who curses you. And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

That  alone should motivate every Christian to bless, support Israel. 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.

I was pleased to read an article in The Jerusalem Post that ’50 million US Christians back Israel’

Christian supporters of Israel who gathered in Washington last week did not just sit through policy briefings and lobbying sessions; they danced the hora, blew a shofar, sang Hatikva and celebrated all that they love about Israel.

“We’re here to tell you and the people of Israel that there are 50 million Christians in this nation who support you and the State of Israel,” said CUFI founder John Hagee to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who joined the conference via satellite.

I say, Amen! & Amen!!
