Ten Reasons Why Christians Should Be
Friends of The State of Israel
We may not always agree with Israeli home or foreign policy. However, the Bible does give us some clear reasons why we should pray and support the Jewish people and State.
Because God has made an everlasting covenant with the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Genesis 17:1-8).
Because God has demonstrated His faithfulness to this covenant by preserving the Jews as an identifiable people before Him (Jeremiah 31:35-37).
Because God has promised to bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse them (Genesis 12:3).
Because our salvation has come through the Jewish people (John 4:22).
Because Jesus was a Jew, the disciples were Jews, the first Christians were Jews and the Jewish Christians sent the Gospel to the Gentiles (Acts 1:6-8).
Because Jews have been shamefully treated during the time of their dispersion, mainly by people who called themselves Christians (Genesis 12:3, Zechariah 1:15).
Because the Jews have been restored to their land in fulfilment of prophecy (Ezekiel 36:8,24).
Because the Jews have a specific biblical purpose to fulfil in the end times. Christ will be revealed to them and in them (Zechariah 14:3-4,8-9, Acts 1:6-7, Romans 10-11, Galatians 6:16).
Because the restored Jewish State with Jerusalem as its capital, will be the seat of government of the Messiah at His return; therefore the survival of the Jewish State is crucial to prophecy (Isaiah 2:3).
Because God plans to make Israel a blessing to the Arabs for whom we also pray (Isaiah 19:23-25).
