It is beyond my understanding why so many claiming to be Bible believing Christians have little or no regard for modern day Israel and the Jewish people. Almost nothing concerning Israel for most of the past 2000 years is relevant to them. Israel is being treated as if it doesn’t exist, and has no right to all of its God-given land.
When or if Israel is mentioned in church sermons, the messages mostly reference the historical Israel of old...and will rarely include anything between the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD and events leading up to the present day. And, perish any thoughts that Israel might have a role to play in end-time prophecy. Oh my...just what are they thinking?
They choose to ignore the fact that much of Scripture is about Israel and the Jews...God’s chosen land and His chosen people. Scripture details past history, it accurately describes events of today, and it foretells the certain future for not only Israel, but also for the world and all of mankind.
The Lord God chose over 44 men to pen the Scriptures as the Holy Spirit breathed the Words into them during a period of more than 1400 years...and most if not all of the writers were Jewish. Jesus Christ, the Messiah, is legally of Jewish lineage. The 12 disciples were Jewish. God’s end-time plan for mankind has Israel as its primary focus...and, in part, is designed to ultimately cause a Jewish remnant to repent and embrace Jesus as the true Messiah. God declared Israel as the center of all nations, and Jerusalem as His dwelling place...and so it will be forever.
Today we are clearly in that end-time period. Scripture explains that during the final days, Israel and Jerusalem will be major stumbling blocks for the nations. Today, all of them are devising ways to not just divide Israeli land and Jerusalem, but to ultimately take it all and destroy the Jewish people. However, Scripture warns that all nations and people that are against Israel will be destroyed.
Wake up...and look around! The whole Middle East is exploding in turmoil...and it is all about Israel. Even her long-time ally, the USA, has now tossed Israel to the wolves. The Jewish people are despised, rejected, and no longer have friends or allies anywhere in the world...exactly as foretold in Scripture. The world’s leaders are obsessed with relentless efforts to suppress and control the tiny sovereign nation of Israel.
In spite of ever increasing schemes and attempts to destroy Israel and the Jewish people, all efforts toward that end will be futile. The prophet Jeremiah recorded these Words from the Lord God explaining the certainty of Israel’s survival.
Jeremiah 31:35-36 KJV
35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
Whenever “Thus saith the LORD” is recorded in Scripture, we must pay very close attention to what is being said!
People, churches, and Pastors everywhere must wake up...now! But, sadly, that is not likely to happen because the enemy has blinded their eyes to the Truth. One day soon all of mankind will stand alone in judgment before Jesus Christ...the Messiah...the Lion of Judah...the King of Kings...to give account for their unbelief.
On that day I would not want to be standing in the shoes of those who have cast Israel aside.
