Why Support Israel?

On October 7th, 2023, a month ago from today, the State of Israel experienced something that no country should ever experience. What happened that day was pure evil and demonic. The problem is, they messed with God’s people… the Israelites. And every country that tried to wipe out Israel… well… it didn’t bode well for them.

You see… Hamas (a terrorist group that’s demon possessed) attacked the citizens of Israel. On Oct. 7 was the deadliest day for Jews since the holocaust. Over 1,400 lives were murdered, more than 200 kidnapped into Gaza, and more than 4,000 injured. As the days went on, the images coming out on social media and accurate news outlets were horrific and demonic. Innocent babies, boys and girls, men and women, and the elderly were murdered, butchered, and kidnapped. Women were raped, families were tied up together and burned alive, a baby was found in an oven and burnt alive, a pregnant woman’s belly was sliced open, and the horrific-demonic stories keep coming in…

10/7/23 is Israel’s 9/11.

An attack on a similar percentage of the U.S. population would result in 50,000 murdered, 7,000 kidnapped, and 100,000 injured. Picture that for a moment in your mind. I can clearly remember what happened on 9/11/01.

The following is from my friend, Andy Cochran, pastor of Calvary Chapel Long Beach (CA).

1) The Blessing: Those who Bless Israel will be Blessed (Genesis 12:1-3).
2) It's Commanded in the Scriptures: Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6).
3) They were Entrusted with the Word of God. We are Indebted to them for keeping the Scriptures. (Romans 3:1-2).
4) All the Major Covenants of the Bible are made with Israel.
5) They are the Wife of God – An unfaithful wife. “The Beloved.” (Ezekiel 16:8-21, Jeremiah 3:6-8, Jeremiah 2:2, Jeremiah 3:1).
6) They are God's Chosen People - He loves them! (Deuteronomy 7:6-8).
7) The Apple of God's eye –  the Focus of His Gracious Gaze (Zechariah 2:8-10).
8) Our Spiritual Roots Come from Israel – Every practice we have as Christians has its roots in Jewish Practices: Baptism, Communion, Baby Dedication, Bible Study, Assembling at Church weekly, Worship.
9) Our Nation has roots in Israel – Jewish people & Biblical Teachings were at the very core of the founding of America.
10) Israel is the Key to Understand Biblical End Times Prophecy.
11) Jesus Returns and Rules from Israel for Eternity – Returns to Jerusalem, Rules from Jerusalem, will create a New Jerusalem.
12) Jesus our Savior and Messiah is Jewish! – He is called the “Son of David”, the “Lion of Judah”.  The Blood that washed away our sins had Jewish DNA.  Jesus teaches us in John 4:22 that “Salvation is of the Jews.” Paul teaches us in Romans 1:16 that salvation came “to the Jew first and then the gentile.”
To support the Jewish people and the nation of Israel – is a Christian thing... period.
Thanks Andy!

Folks… if you are a genuine follower of Christ, then it is your duty to SUPPORT ISRAEL.

Now regarding Hamas, here’s something that Amir Tsarfait said (and I wholeheartedly support):
  • Hamas showed that it is worse than ISIS and should be treated as such. Not only because Israel has a right to defend itself, and not even out of revenge. Eradicating Hamas is essential for Israel’s very existence.
  • If Hamas is not completely dismantled, then its next terror attack it will murder 10,000 people.
  • If Hamas is not completely dismantled, then our even stronger enemies from the north and from Iran will know that they can exert such attacks and that we will tolerate.
  • If Hamas is not completely dismantled, its next attack could be outside of Israel, in your own country.

I firmly believe the American church needs to wake up. What happened in Israel can and will happen here on American soil. Pastors and churches need to start standing up for truth and not stay silent. The German church and pastors stayed silent when Hitler and his henchmen tried to eradicate the Jews. We must stand with Israel!

In Jesus name…
