America Needs to Back Israel

America Needs to Back Israel

Our nation is facing more of a crisis at the moment than many people realize because of the approach America seems to be taking toward Israel. As our government pursues some type of accord with Iran, they are putting pressure on Israel. This pressure is dangerous not only for Israel, but for us as well. Whether that pressure includes the land-for-peace mentality or stopping settlements,  no nation and no person have the right to limit what God gave Israel or the Israelites’ right to occupy their land—yet that is what is in process right now.

The blessing of God has been on this country for centuries, and it relates largely to our firm stand with Israel through the past decades. We want to continue to stand with Israel as the American people and nation. Let’s pray and ask God’s intervention in the governmental processes that would take us in another direction.

Father, we thank You for ordering not just our individual steps as people, but for ordering our steps as a nation because we were founded as a nation on the principle of Your Word and by Your hand. We purpose not to make a diversion at this point in our lives. We ask You, Lord, to intervene in a way that will produce Your will and continue Your blessing on America. We thank You for changing hearts that need to be changed. You said that You’d turn the king’s heart whithersoever You would (Prov. 21:1). We ask You to do that, Lord. We ask You to intervene in the direction this nation takes. We purpose to stand firmly and continually by Israel. We thank You for doing this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Amen Pastor Mac, we are called to stand by Israel, I know God will not forsake Israel they were chosen for a purpose and time. Gods plan is in force for it is written. We need to pray and trust and believe for God to do his perfect works through this nation and put away what is wicked. Glory to the Author of truth. God will use who ever is committed to serve him through Christ our Lord. We should not get distracted on what is being said by the News, He gave us instructions to keep our eye’s on Jesus. God knows all things and is above all mankind and any darkness in this world. Praise our father.
