AIM for a New Relationship with Israel
Israel is Under Attack!
It happens almost on a daily basis, we hear about another terrorist attack against Israel. Shattering and devastating lives. Jewish families are maliciously ripped apart, children are victims of and live their lives in violence and murder. The people of the Nation of Israel are being forced from a land that no one but the Jews own, yet the outrageous patterns of the Palestinian government leaders are officially promoting, praising and even financially rewarding terrorism against Israel and the Jews with exorbitant pensions and salaries all paid for with American tax dollars. This atrocity must come to an end. It's not only a crime against the Jewish people, it is a crime against the Palestinian people to lead them away from peace and towards death.
Why Should We Support Israel?
Christian support for the restoration of the Jews to their ancient homeland has been around for as long as Christians have been able to read the Bible for themselves. Here, they read about God's covenant with Abraham, Genesis 12:1-3, in which God promised to Abraham and his descendants the land of Canaan. In this covenant, God also promised Abraham that He would bless those that blessed him, and He would curse those that cursed him.
Israel has always been our true ally in the Middle East, and the United States has always maintained a very close relationship with the people of Israel. But, for about the last 20 years, it seems that we have been doing everything we can to destroy that relationship and distance ourselves from Israel. It's Time for a New Relationship! Christians recognize the spiritual debt that Christianity owes the Jewish people. But, as Christians, we also recognize the role that many Christians have played in the persecution of the Jewish people throughout history. We inspire to correct this and build a new relationship based upon mutual respect, honor and understanding.
Israel needs our support. Please give so we can show the great people of Israel that America has taken AIM on their aggressors.
Seven Biblical ReasonsWhy Christians Should Support Israel
Everything Christians do, should be based upon the Biblical text. Here are seven solid Bible reasons why Christians should support Israel.
1. Genesis 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed." Point: God has promised to bless the man or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God.
2. St. Paul recorded in Romans 15:27 "For if the Gentiles have shared in their (the Jews) spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things."
Christians owe a debt of eternal gratitude to the Jewish people for their contributions
that gave birth to the Christian faith. Jesus Christ, a prominent Rabbi from Nazareth said, "Salvation is of the Jews!" (St. John 4:22) consider what the Jewish people have given to Christianity:
a) The Sacred Scripture
b) The Prophets
c) The Patriarchs
d) Mary, Joseph, and Jesus Christ of Nazareth
e) The Twelve Disciples
f) The Apostles
It is not possible to say, "I am a Christian" and not love the Jewish people. The Bible
teaches that love is not what you say, but what you do. (1 John 3:18) "A bell is not a bell
until you ring it, a song is not a song until you sing it, love is not love until you share it."
3. While some Christians try to deny the connection between Jesus of Nazareth and the
Jews of the world, Jesus never denied his Jewishness. He was born Jewish, He was
circumcised on the eighth day in keeping with Jewish tradition, He had his Bar Mitzvah
on his 13th birthday, He kept the law of Moses, He wore the Prayer Shawl Moses
commanded all Jewish men to wear, He died on a cross with an inscription over His head, "King of the Jews!" Jesus considered the Jewish people His family. Jesus said (Matthew 25:40) "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren (the Jewish people… Gentiles were never called His brethren), ye have done it unto me."
4. "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee." (Psalm 122:6) the scriptural principle of prosperity is tied to blessing Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
5. Why did Jesus Christ go to the house of Cornelius in Capernaum and heal his servant,
which was ready to die? What logic did the Jewish elders use with Jesus to convince Him to come into the house of a Gentile and perform a miracle? The logic they used is recorded in Luke 7:5; "For He loveth our nation, and He hath built us a synagogue." The message? This Gentile deserves the blessing of God because he loves our nation and has done something practical to bless the Jewish people.
6. Why did God the Father select the house of Cornelius in Caesarea (Acts Chapter 10) to be the first Gentile house in Israel to receive the Gospel? The answer is given repeatedly in Acts 10. Acts 10:2 "a devout man, (Cornelius) and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always." Who were the people to whom Cornelius gave these alms? They were the Jews!
Again is Acts 10:4 "… thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before
Again in Acts 10:31 "… and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God."
The point is made three times in the same chapter. A godly Gentile who expressed his
Unconditional love for the Jewish people in a practical manner was divinely selected by
Heaven to be the first Gentile house to receive the Gospel and the first to receive the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit. These combined Scriptures verify that PROSPERITY (Genesis 12:3 and Psalm 122:6), HEALING (Luke 7:1-5) and the OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT came first to Gentiles that blessed the Jewish people and the nation of Israel in a practical manner.
7. We support Israel because all other nations were created by an act of men, but Israel was created by an act of God! The Royal Land Grant that was given to Abraham and his seed through Isaac and Jacob with an everlasting and unconditional covenant.
(Genesis 12:1-3, 13:14-18, 15:1-21, 17:4-8, 22:15-18, 26:1-5 and Psalm 89:28-37.)
