Why history revolves around Israel...

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel
in response to reader comment: Want Peace? Support Israel.

Submitted by chris (United States), Jun 8, 2009 at 23:07

Quite simply because God has determined so. The signs are all lining up for the endgame. Christians must be vigilant as the scriptures warn us. As much as the events unfolding are scary and troubling, we should fear not because of the promises The Lord has made. Jesus is returning soon. Pray for Israel and its people. Pray that hearts and minds will trust Christ and not be deceived.

To the Jewish people: few of you trust Jesus as Savior and God. But while we who do trust Yeshua as Messiah pray that many of you turn to Christ, that is NOT a condition we expect for our love and support for you and your nation. Your nation has been a light unto us gentiles. Out of your nation came the Savior. We don't support you because we feel high and mighty and want to impose our beliefs on you or "know what's good for you"----quite the contrary. We love and support you out of gratitude to the Lord who recognized we could never be good enough or keep His commandments. What did he do? As the prophet Isaiah wrote "He was pierced for our transgressions and crushed for our sins. the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him" We can never pay the debt that Jesus paid. We can support Israel.

Remember, as things may get rough and your enemies surround you, you do have some true friends---those who have put their trust in God who became a Jewish Man born in Bethlehem, who died at Calvary for our sin and rose again, just because He loved us.
