By Blessing Israel, the USA will be Blessed!
For many years on our Israel tours, Katharine and I have made sure to include the mountains of Judea and Samaria, what the world mistakenly calls the “West Bank”. This grew out of our friendship with David Rubin, the former Mayor of Shiloh, who with his son Reuben, was the 1000th victim of terror attacks in the area. Their miraculous recovery and David’s establishing of a therapy center for children who were the targets of terror drew us to invest in his work and bring hundreds of people to the heartland of Israel to witness God’s restoration.
Imagine our delight when the U. S. announced through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that America was taking a biblical stand with Israel. The headline read:
Trump Administration Says Israeli Settlements Aren’t Illegal…
“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lays out shift in decades of U.S. policy on West Bank settlements.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday that the U.S. no longer will consider Israeli settlements to be illegal under international law, a move that formalizes the Trump administration’s treatment of the West Bank and shifts decades of U.S. policy.”
United States policy is now in line with the scriptural, revealed will of God! We are living in the time when God is bringing the Jewish people home to His Promised Land.
8 But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come. 9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be tilled and sown: 10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be built: 11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better to you than at your beginnings: and you shall know that I am the LORD.
Most Israelis are secular, with various opinions of how the tiny country has survived. I believe the first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, who said, “To be a realist in Israel you HAVE to believe in miracles”
God Fulfills His Word!
Jeremiah 31:3 For the days come, says the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, says the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it…
4 Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin of Israel: you shall again be adorned with tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
5 You shall yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.
6 For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise you, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.
Jer. 31:10 Hear the word of the LORD, O you nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock.
And our favorite:
Amos 9:13 “Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord,
“When the plowman will overtake the reaper
And the treader of grapes him who sows seed;
When the mountains will drip sweet wine
And all the hills will be dissolved.
14 “Also I will restore the [f]captivity of My people Israel,
And they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them;
They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine,
And make gardens and eat their fruit.
15 “I will also plant them on their land,
And they will not again be rooted out from their land
Which I have given them,”
Says the Lord your God.
This shift represents President Trump’s policy and places the United States even more solidly in compliance with Genesis 12:3
And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in [through] you all the families of the earth will be blessed.
Mark the day: On November 18, 2019, the United States blessed themselves by aligning with God’s will for Israel.
Watch for greater revival in the Body, more awakening in the culture, and an increased anointing to love what God loves…
