Why Support Israel? Because God is Faithful

Lesson 37

Why Support Israel? Because God is Faithful

The Christian connection to Israel starts with God’s Word. Scripture is clear that the Jewish people have a special and eternal place in the heart of God (e.g., Jeremiah 31:35-37; Romans 11:1). This is a vital truth indicative of God’s holy character.

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, whom Christians and Jews worship, is the God who keeps covenant. He fulfills His promises, never failing or forsaking His people, whether they are Jews or Gentiles (Deuteronomy 31:6; Romans 3:28-30; 9:23-25; 2 Timothy 2:13).

As Christians, we believe God is faithful to His promises and will continue being faithful to them. The modern state of Israel is a powerful and miraculous testament to this fact. This same faithfulness is why we stand with Israel and support the Jewish people. As imitators of God and beneficiaries of God’s covenants with Israel, we believe God’s promises to Israel will be fulfilled and we obey His command to bless His Chosen People (Genesis 12:3). In the process, our own faith in God is buttressed and we are blessed for our obedience. Amen!
