Standing with Israel (Pt. 2)

Draw in the sand

Scripture declares there will come a time when all the nations of the world will turn against Israel. It is highly conceivable this could happen within our lifetime. This is why it is so critical to outline why we should stand with Israel today.

There is a strategic line being drawn in the sand, and when all is said and done, we had better be standing on the same side of that line as Israel. God said, “I will bless those who bless you (Israel), and whoever curses you (Israel), I will curse.” (Genesis 12:3)

Those who see the world in 50 shades of gray need to now open up your Bible and see that it is written in black and white.

Some people misinterpret “separation between church and state. That is simply saying that the government should not interfere with the church. It was a big mistake to take prayer out of our schools, remove all signs of Jesus the Christ from Christmas and remove the Ten Commandments from our judicial system. These are just a few lines of which you do not want to find yourself on the wrong side.

There are forces in this world that would like to eradicate Israel and her people. This matter is a ticking time bomb. In Zechariah 12:8-9 God tells us that in that day, David shall be like God, like the Angel of the Lord before them. “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

With each step our nation takes across that “line in the sand” instead of standing with Israel; such a step will bring our nation closer to certain self-destruction and end-time judgment. The time is now, to stand up and speak the truth and come to Israel’s defense.

Even the settlement areas of Israel are defense measures; they do not harm or threaten anyone. The first line of defense for Israel is their settlements along the Palestinian borders. To stand with Israel does not mean that you are against the Palestinians. It means that you believe in historic facts and Biblical truth.

We stand at a crossroads in history. God’s prophetic drama is unfolding before us. It is He who is drawing a line in the sand, down the middle of that road. We have been exposed to the clarity of God’s Word. If you posture yourself against the Jews or Israel, you risk the awful consequences of finding yourself on the wrong side of the line that God has drawn in the sand.
