Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have heard of the recent unrest in the Middle East. This is nothing new. There has been tension between Israel and Palestine for hundreds of years. As you listen to the secular media, be sure to remember that God made a covenant with the Jewish people for the land of Israel, and we can be confident that God does not lie and He will never break a covenant,
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. HasHe said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and willHe not make it good?
This was a literal covenant for a literal land; therefore, this title deed to Israel stood when it was made between God and Abraham, and it stands today and forever.
The Creator of the universe has made it clear in His Word, and we, as Bible-believing Christians, must recognize that we have a mandate to support Israel and its claim to the Promised Land. No leader on earth can remove God’s blessing from Israel or the Jewish people. They are, and always will be, the apple of God’s eye. Israel is a chosen nation, and our Jewish friends are cherished people who have a covenant with God. As Christians, WE STAND WITH ISRAEL!
There are many uncertainties in today’s world, but this we know for sure: There is coming a day when the faithful will be called to meet King Jesus in the air. That is why the message we proclaim is crucial because one day, EVERY knee will bow, and EVERY tongue confess that He is Lord!
Read through the 38th chapter of Ezekiel. The chapter ends like this: “Then they shall know that I am the LORD” (v. 23b). That is an incredibly powerful statement. But what will happen before that time? What does Bible prophecy tell us? If we open the Word of God, it gives us a prophetic view of tomorrow.
The world is fascinated with the future of planet earth, grasping at straws in their search for answers. The rich and powerful are digging up underground cities, looking over their shoulders at the possibility of a nuclear mushroom cloud coming our way. There is concern about gas shortages, a falling stock market, rising interest rates, and global warming. It seems that people everywhere are living in fear.
Psalm 37:25 tells us, “I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.” Fear not, friends! We serve a God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and He always has your very best interest in mind. Has He brought you this far only to let you down now? Certainly not!
If you think that Bible prophecy is just Old Testament news, think again! 25% of the Bible is prophecy, and it affects us today in a very real and tangible way. Written more than 3,000 years ago, God’s Word predicts the future like no other source ever known to man.
Bible prophecy clearly reveals that immediately before the Church’s Rapture, four powerful kings will race onto the stage of world history with two objectives.
The first objective is to conquer the world and bring it under a global dictatorship. This dictator will seek to sit on an imperial throne as the king of all the earth, stripping you of your freedoms and civil rights. Is any of this starting to sound familiar? Do you think this could never happen? Think again! You can just stand by, say, and do nothing, and watch as we all become slaves of the state.
The second objective is to conquer Israel and destroy the Jewish people. Israel is currently surrounded by nations that are screaming for their blood. Anti-Semitism is raging throughout the world. The more secular the world becomes, the more anti-Semitic it will be.
But fear not! The God that keepeth Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. He has a set time to deal with the nations of the world, and Israel is God’s chosen nation. I believe that we are watching the preliminary birth pains of the Gog-Magog wars mentioned in Ezekiel 38.
Think about it. Their stories were written by Ezekiel, Daniel, Joel, and John the Revelator. And NOW it’s happening, unfolding before our very eyes. You are watching a massive, prophetic geopolitical drama unfolding on the daily news. You are seeing it broadcast on TV every day as turmoil continues to flood our streets like never before.
Why should you care? Because the Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ happens before the Gog-Magog wars take place. Psalm 102:13 tells us, “You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come.”
Jerusalem is now and will always be the eternal and undivided capital of the Jewish people. Jerusalem has never belonged to anyone but the Jewish people. It is theirs according to the covenant that God made with Abraham in the Book of Genesis.
It was a great day for our nation and the world when the American Embassy was moved to Jerusalem, where it belongs. Because of that move, I believe our country experienced a season of blessing and abundance.
Our economy was growing, the enemies of democracy and their evil corruption were exposed, and our military was being rebuilt with a stronger infrastructure. We saw the results of a nation that honors Israel and supports God’s chosen people. That is not the case anymore. The current administration is turning its back on Israel, funding its enemies, and supporting anti-Semitic activities around the world.
The Bible is clear when God is speaking to Israel in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Do you want the blessings of God to be poured out on your life? Then take a stand with us, and support Israel. The same King that sits upon the throne, watching over Israel, is the same God watching over YOU! He knows the number of hairs on your head. He loves you more deeply than you can imagine.
Don’t walk around in fear and doubt. Take your burdens to the Lord. Place those things that concern you today… your marriage, your children, your finances... whatever they may be, put them in the hands of Jesus and watch miracles begin to happen in your life.
