Will America’s Blessing Be Upon Israel?

In 1991 a powerful hurricane developed in the North Atlantic Ocean. It was named the “Perfect Storm” about which a movie was made. The storm made a direct hit with 30-foot waves on the home of President Bush in Kennebunkport, Maine, on October 30.

Meanwhile, President Bush was at the Madrid Peace Conference, initiating a peace plan involving Israel, the Palestinians, and other surrounding nations. It later led to an agreement of Israel surrendering land to Palestine.

Then, Hurricane Andrew struck Florida on August 24, 1992. Next came a 6.8 earthquake on January 16, 1994, centered only twenty-five miles from downtown Los Angeles, California. It was powerful enough to move a mountain range one foot and lift buildings off their foundations.

Author John P. McTernan in his book, “As America Has Done To Israel,” states that “These events fell on the very days that the United States was involved in pressuring Israel to divide its land. The parallels…continue to this day.” Is this all coincidence? McTernan presents a well substantiated case that these storms and other disasters are not!

God promised land to the Jewish people as stated in Genesis 12:1-2. “Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go forth from your country, and from your relatives, and from your father’s house, to the land which I will show you. And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, and so you shall be a blessing.’” The boundaries are specifically given in Exodus 23:31.

No matter how one views the Middle East conflicts, God is clearly on the side of Israel. Genesis 12:3 says that those who bless Israel will be blessed, and those who curse Israel will be cursed! America is once again at a crossroad. Will it choose to bless Israel or snub her? This does not mean that one needs to agree with all that Israel does, even when it acts in self-defense.

There are four reasons why we should bless Israel: God gave the land to the Jews. They have been persecuted down through history for unjustifiable reasons. Israel is God’s prophetic time clock. Israel has been a blessing to the entire world through medical breakthroughs and technology.

There are three ways to show support for Israel and the Jewish people. We can pray for them and give financially. Another way to lend political support is to become involved in “Christians United For Israel.”

What America does toward Israel has much to do with whether or not God blesses America. Let us hope and pray that the United States government will stand behind the Jewish people, and thus, spared the judgment of God with natural, or might I say, divinely orchestrated, disasters!

In what ways can you, or your church congregation, be a blessing to Israel?

  1. Well spoken, brother! I missed your article when it was posted but found your writing very interesting. I totally agree with you in this matter. I have taken notice in the scriptures that the Lord uses nature to overthrow nations. Something people cannot harness. Even in the future with the bowls and vials poured out upon the Earth.
    A date stood out to me though not so much about your article but the date you wrote it caught my attention. Does May 31, 1995 ring a bell? A date this country didn’t honor their commitment to do right by Israel though it became the law that was passed years before and designated to be finalized no later than this day.
    Our country had crumbled before then and it appears to have buried this important matter and disregarded the will of the people. We haven’t seen this nation for what it was designed to be for a long time now. A nation under God, by the people and for the people seems to have been mocked by the courtrooms, the Bible removed from the classrooms, and divided by party lines and government overreach. The love of money has wormed it’s way into the fabric of our political and educational system and has become the god of the land. Disregarding the land of Israel and not giving aid to the people of the Book. Taking sides against their rights to this land given to them by God. He is the only One that can change their claim to it. To allow their enemies to use military force or manipulate the countries to align with them should not have swayed our obligation to do what was necessary and right. Sorrowful that we yielded to compromise and conditions that wouldn’t be honored even if it wasn’t the thing to do.
    When God is being removed, His righteous indignation is warranted, and we have the makings of a corrupt nation where the teachings lead to a stupefied oppressive society in the making. We are witnessing this being played out in a big way as individuals are trying to silence or manipulate our minds to believe what they want us to think.
    Sad that this nation is on the wrong course and has hellish consequences to deal with.
    We know that Christ is the only Hope personally and nationally.
    Help us dear Lord to fight the enemy that would come against us to destroy the souls of mankind. By faith in Your Word and Your presence, bring about the victory we need against the wiles of the devil; that we will be more than conquerors through Jesus Christ our Lord. For your honor and glory we ask this, Amen
