The Message-Bless Israel, October 2021

I pray for Israel sometimes. Certainly not the way God wants us to. I must do better. I owe them such a great debt of gratitude and so do you, for all they have contributed to our Spiritual life.

Without Israel, we wouldn’t have Jesus, Salvation, the Bible, the Prophets, the Disciples, the 10 commandments, Christianity, Paul who wrote most of the New Testament, and it goes on and on. They all are a part of Israel. We (Gentiles/non-Jewish) have a lot to be grateful for because of the Jewish people and Israel. We are to honor, and straight from God, we are to bless them.

When we begin blessing Israel and the Jewish people God begins performing blessings and miracles for us. Take time to bless the Jewish people and pray for their protection, safety and peace. Pray that souls will be saved and you will prosper. I want to prosper and be blessed, but more than that, I want to obey God.

Genesis 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you.

When you bless the Jewish people/Israel the Lord will do good things for you. The Bible tells us about a centurion’s servant (non-Jewish) was sick and ready to die. The centurion had heard about Jesus and asked Jewish elders to plead with Jesus to come and heal his servant. It was said the servant was deserving because he loved their nation and built them a synagogue. Jesus healed this servant. He blessed the non-Jewish servant because he had blessed Israel by building a synagogue for the Jewish people.

Luke 7:1-5, 10 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die. So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him to come and heal his servant. And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying that the one for whom He should do this was deserving, for he loves our nation, and has built us a synagogue.

And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well who had been sick.

As Christians we must stand with Israel and the Jewish people. Stand in the gap for them when you hear anti semantic jokes or conversations about them. Don’t stay quiet. It will please God. Israel is the only nation created by God Himself.

God isn’t finished with the Israel and the Jewish people yet. No other people have replaced them in God’s eyes. They are His people, the apple of His eye.

Zechariah 2:8 For thus says the Lord of hosts: He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.

Romans 11:26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Deliverer will come out of Zion, And He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.

Jesus is the Deliverer and Zion is Jerusalem, Israel.

Jesus will be coming back to earth in the Second Coming as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, which is located in Israel. Jesus and King David are from the tribe of Judah. Jesus the Jewish Rabbi is going to rule and reign in Jerusalem (Zion), Israel.

Psalm 132:13 For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place:

2 Chronicles 6:6 Yet I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name may be there…

Zechariah 2:8 For thus said the Lord of hosts, after his glory sent me to the nations who plundered you, for he who touches you touches the apple of his eye:

Throughout history there have been Jew hating nations. There are still today in the 21st Century. In God’s timing, He will crush them, He will annihilate those nations who didn’t give Israel and the Jewish people any peace or comfort. No wonder God wants us to comfort and bless His people.

Isaiah 40:1 Comfort, yes, comfort My people! Says your God.

The Jewish people will be liberated by God from all their haters.

Jeremiah 51:20 You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms;

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
