Are You With Israel Or Not? America and Christians Need To Stop Sitting On The Fence

Robert Gottselig

Are you with Israel or not? That’s a great question for US President Joe Biden, who is playing both sides of the Israel-Hamas War. One moment, he supports Israel’s right to defend itself and defeat Hamas; the next moment, he seems to want to let Hamas live to fight another day.

Such was the case just last week when Biden approved a pause on the shipment to Israel of 3,500 pound bombs, 6,500 kits used to turn dumb bombs into precision-guided weapons, tank munitions, mortar rounds, and other weapons. Biden told CNN on May 8th, “I made it clear that if they go into Rafah – they haven’t gone in Rafah yet – if they go into Rafah, I’m not supplying the weapons that have been used historically to deal with Rafah, to deal with the cities – that deal with that problem.”

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, along the same lines, told CBS News on Sunday, “What we’ve been clear about is that if Israel launches this major military operation into Rafah, then there are certain systems that we’re not going to be supporting and supplying for that operation.”

Blinken asserted that Israel, instead of working to eliminate Hamas’ in its last stronghold (Rafah), should pull out of Gaza entirely. The Secretary of State claimed Israel’s exit would be a “more effective, durable way” to demilitarize Hamas.

Seriously? Israel should just forget about it and let Hamas live another day? You can’t be serious… but that’s what they’re saying. 

These threats have been coming out of the United States for quite some time now. In response last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “If we have to stand alone, we will stand alone. I have already said that if we have to – we will fight with our nails. But we have much more than our nails, and with the same determination, with God’s help, we will win together.”

On May 14th, Israel celebrated Independence Day. Seventy-six years ago, in 1948, they defeated five Arab countries that came against the Jewish people and vowed to finish what Hitler started. The armies of those Arab Nations (Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon) lost despite having ten-to-one odds in their favor. That should tell us something. The God of this universe has His hand on His chosen people, and He is regathering them back to their ancestral homeland. No one can thwart those plans.

Are you standing with Israel or not? I also asked that question to all pastors. Many, even of the dispensationalist pastors who are solid in what the Bible says concerning Israel and the Jewish people, since October 7th have been silent at their pulpits. Why? Your silence resonates loudly with those that hate Israel.

Why not instead educate your congregation on what God’s Word says concerning Israel in the days in which we live? Teach your congregation to obey God’s command to comfort and move with compassion for His chosen people.

Perhaps a rereading of Ezekiel 36-37 and Romans 11 would help!

Are you with Israel or not? I also ask that question to all of you reading this article. If you say that you are with Israel, then show it. Demonstrate it by standing, loving, and supporting Israel and the Jewish people—this includes speaking out against anti-Semitism, looking for ways to help, and maybe getting involved in the Jewish community—don’t idly sit on the fence.

If you’re not with Israel… shame on you! Historically, geopolitically, and most importantly, Biblically, the Jewish people have a right to the land of Israel. It is where God has placed His name forever. God owns the land; He can give it to whomever He chooses, and he has selected the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Period!

Psalm 105:8-9 says, “He [God] remembers His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, And confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To Israel as an everlasting covenant, Saying, ‘To you I will give the land of Canaan As the allotment of your inheritance,'”

There you have it. God is with Israel, and if you’re not or you’re sitting on the fence, you are playing right into the hand of Satan, who wants nothing more than to wipe Israel off the face of the map. 

Hamas is a terrorist organization that carried out the most heinous, evil, and demonic atrocities against innocent Jewish lives on October 7th. Some point to the innocent lives that Israel has taken since October 8th in Gaza. However, there is much doubt surrounding these numbers. Hamas can’t even come up with a list of 10,000 names of the so-called 34,000 people they claim have died. This is not to mention the fact that Hamas uses their own people as human Shields. Hamas is 100% responsible for any and all deaths in this war—not Israel.

To let Hamas live another day is to open the door to a repeat of October 7th, which they said they would do all over again. To insist Hamas live another day is also to severely degrade the worth of Israel, and for that, we will all have to give an account one day to the God of Israel, who has an everlasting love for His chosen people.

In Isaiah 49:14-16 we read, “But Zion said, ‘The Lord has forsaken me, And my Lord has forgotten me.'” God responded, “‘Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.'”

Debunking Popular Lies About Premillennialism

I once heard Amir Tsarfati say, “Israel’s future guarantees our salvation.” That’s why Premillennialism is not just a tertiary doctrine of little importance to us. It’s all about God keeping His promises both to Israel and to us.

The Dominoes Are Falling Fast On Marxist ‘Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion’ Programs

Critics have compared the coerced DEI statements as a tool for screening out conservatives, Christians, and others from academia. It represents a forced humiliation ritual, too, with individuals being coerced to pledge allegiance to a dangerous ideology.
