Christians Need To Support Israel

  I don't know how to make this more clear, I support and love Israel and I also love the Jewish people. Our Bible says, in Romans 15:27 "...For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things." Simply put, God's chosen people are the sons and daughters of Abraham and these people are the Jewish people. They have preserved the Holy Scriptures for thousands of years and gave us the First Family of Christianity which is Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We Christians were graphed into the family because of Christ, our Lord and Savior.

  More than ever before, the Jewish people need our prayers, our love and our support. The angry clouds of war are gathering over the Holy Land as Russia and the Muslim nations surrounding Israel prepare to attack God's people. Daily, rockets are flying into villages and town wounding and killing men, women and children whose only crime was to be born Jewish and love the One true God. While the United Nations seems to always side with Israel's enemies, those enemies of Israel are waging a war against God's people. While Israel does its best to recognize all people's and their right to exist, the nations of the world still refuse to recognize this nation, the Jewish State of Israel that has given so much to the world.

  As Christians, it is our biblical obligation to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, to pray for the Jewish people and it is also our obligation to support Israel with our "carnal" things as well. Yes, I'm taking about supporting Israel with our finances whenever we feel led and whenever can. Support any number of the great organizations that help feed, clothe and shelter God's children. Support efforts to care of the orphans, widows or help organizations that provide help to those who are trying to migrate to Israel. No matter what you feel led to do, God will bless your efforts and you will be a blessing to those who need our support.

  Personally, I support Christians United For Israel with finances and I am also a member of this great organization. I have watched CUFI grow into the largest pro-Israel organization in the United Sates and have seen the results of the thousands of people who have given to support the many causes CUFI supports. While there are a great many organizations supporting Israel, this is the one I felt led to become a part of. My online church, The Home Church, is also a member of CUFI and supports CUFI with offerings, prayer and posting information they supply from Israel.

  Here's the main point I want to make: no matter what, Christians need to support Israel with our prayers. King David, the great warrior king of Israel, wrote in Pslams 122:6 "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee." God made a promise here that you need to listen to and need to understand: God promised that HE will bless those that pray for Jerusalem (meaning Israel) and HE will bless those that support Israel with their finances. God promised Abraham this when He said " And I will bless them that bless thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." The whole of the earth has been blessed because and by the Jewish people so, lets support them with our very best prayers and offerings. Don't let a day go by that you don't take a moment and pray for God's chosen people and for the City of Jerusalem.

God bless Jerusalem and the State of Israel: God bless and keep you,
