America Must Stand With Israel Gen. 12:2-3 CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
If you didn’t know this already, America must stand with Israel. A pastor friend of mine said, “I believe that the reason America has not been judged by God is that we continue to support Israel and we continue to support missions.”
America must stand with Israel because:
God blesses those nations that bless Israel. That is what God said to Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee,” [Gen 12:3]. God said the same thing to him in Gen 22:18 concerning his seed, “in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.” God made that promise to Isaac [Gen 17:19] and said, “in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed,” [Gen 26:4]. God said the same thing to Jacob, “in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed,” [Gen 28:14, confirming the blessing of Isaac in Gen 27:29]. Notice that this promise was not made to Ishmael and his descendents.
God judges nations based upon how they treat Israel. In Matt 25:31-46 we read about the judgment of nations. Pay close attention to the fact that the sheep nations will be blessed of the Father because they take care of Christ’s brethren and the goat nations will be cursed because they refused to help Christ’s brethren. We have done enough as a nation to warrant God’s judgment against us and yet we are still blessed because we haven’t turned our back on his people. We can’t!!
God made a covenant with Israel by which we must abide. In Ps 105:8-12 the psalmist recounts the covenant that God made with Israel regarding the land of Canaan. This is the land bordered by the Mediterranean Sea on the west and the Jordan River on the east. That is God’s land that he gave to Israel. Folks, the two-state solution is a godless contrivance of man that is contrary to God’s promise to Israel. It will not work. No amount of land given to Palestinians will ever result in peace in the Middle East. The design of the Arab nations is to ultimately wipe out the existence of the nation of Israel, Ps 83. We must continue to be the one nation who will stand in the way of all attempts to accomplish that. I realize that Jesus is the one who will ultimately save Israel from extinction [Zech 14:1-3]; but until then we need to stand opposed to all nations who are opposed to Israel.
Conclusion: No matter what, America must stand with Israel. The Iran threat is real. The facilities Iran has currently enriching uranium are vastly greater than what they would need for generating power. They have designs on building a bomb. If you thought Hitler’s threats to our liberty were bad you won’t believe what will happen to this nation if Iran can utilize nuclear bombs. Make sure you pray for the peace of Jerusalem and make sure that you stand with Israel.
