Why I support the Jewish State - Israel?

In January 4, 2009, I joined the Facebook group I Support the Israel Defense Forces In Preventing Terror Attacks From Gaza Discussions. I wanted to post what I said via the group about why I took my stand with Israel:

Taking my stand with the physical children of Abraham, and remembering Psalm 122:6. All who support the cause of Jerusalem shall prosper.

G-d will punish all those who when UNPROVOKED seek to hurt this physical nation. Hamas has no just cause for attacking Israel!

From JERUSALEM - the Messiah shall rule the earth and PEACE shall flow out to the entire world!

Let G-d judge and punish Israel, if they have in any way acted in abuse of their powers.

Yet G-d always affirms that a nation has the right to defend itself. It is unfortunate that Hamas has continuously provoked Israel to wrath, that Israel has to shelve all hopes of peace to enter into territory ceded to a Palestinian state in order to secure its borders.

The rulers of nation-state - is given the G-d-given responsibility to secure its citizens. That is the number 1 - responsibility of any government.

Israel and portions of Palestine rightfully belongs to the Jews. G-d sometimes permit others to occupy Israel and portions of Palestine, because the Jews were not faithful to the covenant made with their fathers.

But essentially, G-d has promised Israel (and portions of Palestine) to Jacob's seed, and not to any other family of the earth. His promises will come to pass, for he is not man that he should lie.

Deuteronomy 32:8
When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel.


Numbers 34:12
Then the boundary will go down along the Jordan and end at the Salt Sea. " 'This will be your land, with its boundaries on every side."


Numbers 34:2
"Command the Israelites and say to them: 'When you enter Canaan, the land that will be allotted to you as an inheritance will have these boundaries:"

Israel not only has a legal right to exist, but there is a divine intent behind its borders.

The original Christianity were supporters of Israel and Jerusalem.

I am a Christian because a Jew and a sect of Jews explained to Gentiles the will of G-d for the entire world was, including the relevance of Torah and the prophets to non-Jews.

It is ironic that today, some in Christianity had divorced itself from the roots of Judaism.

However in the last days, Jews and Bible believing Christians will unite. We have one book - that the 3 major religions agree on the Torah, the Psalms and the Prophets. We may dispute the others, but even Islam, agree on the promises given to Avraham (Abraham) and his descendants.

In your search for the meaning of life and the questioning of religion, begin where all of us agree. Then ask yourself is the Torah just a religious book or a book for humanity? Is it a book for you?

In Israel and Palestine, humanity can not bring about the peace. It will take the direct intervention of G-d, the Almighty and the promised Messiah. Of course, the Almighty G-d is the land owner. He will settle the dispute of the land.

But he has promised Israel and the entire nations of the earth, that he will give us a ruler that will be JUDGE and settle all disputes, and end all wars.

This is the prophesied Messiah and Messianic Age - revealed in both the Christian and Jewish Scriptures.

Fairness and a change of men's hearts will be a prerequisite for PEACE, from which only he who created all men can bring about.
