As you've seen in recent weeks, right now, Israel is in great need. God definitely wants you to be a difference-maker in the lives of our Jewish brothers and sisters.
Terrorist attacks in the Holy Land and antisemitic hate crimes in America and around the world are still happening every day. The Lord is calling you, the church, Christians everywhere to rise up in prayer and with vocal support for God's chosen people.
And as you recognize the signs of the times, with the approach of the Lord's return, a line is being drawn in the sand to separate who loves Israel and will stand with the nation and who won't.
God called Ezekiel, and He is calling you too: "Son of man, I have made you a watchman to the house of Israel" (Ezek. 3:17a).
Here are five reasons to answer the call to stand with Israel as a modern-day watchman:
1. Because the Jewish people have suffered enough. The Holocaust was only among the most recent instances. New terror threats continue to evolve even as you read this article.
2. Because God established Israel as the Holy Land and gave it to the Jewish people forever, beginning with Abraham. (See Gen. 17:8.)
3. Because our Jewish brothers and sisters are in danger. They are caught in the crosshairs of the hostile terror groups and antagonistic countries around the world. Even many in the USA believe one Jewish nation is one too many.
4. Because there is a perilous rise in hate, hostility and antisemitic attitudes toward anyone Jewish. Yet while so many detest them, God loves them dearly, as it says in Zechariah 2:8b (NLT) "Anyone who harms you harms my most precious possession."
5. Because according to Romans 11, we are Judeo-Christians grafted into Israel. We are their brothers and sisters in faith.
Now here's the kicker: Israel not only needs you; you also need Israel—that is if you desire to live a blessed life and fulfill end-times prophecy. God's first promise and His eternal promise is this: "I will bless those who bless you [Israel]" (Gen. 12:3a).
When you stand with Israel and support the Jewish people, you are not only doing the right thing as a watchman, you are also setting yourself up to receive an abundant blessing of the Lord.
