Do You Love Israel? The Answer Determines The Fate Of Nations

Robert Gottselig

Last week, I asked a very simple question: Are you with Israel or not? While I had a lot of positive responses, there were also plenty of negative reactions to that question, such as, “Nope, you’re on your own” or “shush with that nonsense,” some said “never ever” would they stand with Israel, and others posted laughing emojis. Predictably, these responses were mixed with a lot of free Palestine rhetoric.

Well, this week, I’m asking you another question: Do you love Israel? Of course, the answer is you should. But why do I say that? Very simply, because the God of this universe loves Israel!

For all the Israel-haters out there, do you know what the Bible has to say about Israel and the Jewish people? Well, let me tell you.

True to what the Hebrew prophets wrote in the Old Testament Scriptures, God warned that if His chosen people did not obey Him and His commandments, He would scatter them to the four corners of the earth, where a whole list of curses would follow them, and they would find no rest among those nations. Did that happen? Absolutely. We can see it with our own eyes.

However, God also said in Leviticus 26:44-45, “Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them; for I am the Lord their God. But for their sake I will remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the Lord.'”

God gives promises that go all the way back to Abraham, a promise of protection, land, seed, and blessing. God, faithful to His Word, has preserved His people as a national identity forever for the whole world to witness.

Think about it, friends: the Jewish people had every right to intermarry and to lose their identity when they came under severe persecution. Look at the horrors they faced in the Holocaust! Yet God preserved them and is gathering them back again before our very eyes in our day. They have been coming back to their ancestral homeland since 1948, and also prior to that time. He’s gathering his chosen people back because he said He would— not to so-called “Palestine,” but to Israel, to their ancestral homeland. The world should know that.

In Ezekiel 36:23-24 we read, “‘And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the Lord,’ says the Lord God, ‘when I am hallowed in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land.'”

God has a purpose in bringing them into their own land. The following verses explain that one day, God will regenerate the nation—Israel as a whole—when He pours His spirit inside them.

The Jewish people were scattered to the four corners of the earth—and many are still dispersed today throughout the nations. But God has brought and is bringing His Chosen people back to the land of Israel.

What we’re reading tells me the Bible is about real people, real places, and real events. God alone is the author of prophecy. He alone is the one that can predict the future. No other religious writings dare to predict the future, except for the Bible—and with 100% accuracy.

Those that hate Israel: Do you know you are picking a fight with the God of this universe, and you are setting yourself up for severe, eternal judgment? Psalm 129:5 says, “Let all those who hate Zion be put to shame and turned back.”

Zion is the place where God has placed His name forever. We read in Psalm 132:13-14, “For the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His dwelling place: This is My resting place forever; Here I will dwell, for I have desired it.'”

You would think that everyone who has the ability to think would see that God has His hand on His chosen people and His covenant land. All those that have come against them have vanished from this world scene. Shouldn’t the world have learned its lesson by now? Where are all those ancient kingdoms? Think of the ancient Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Medes, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans, and the Third Reich. The list goes on. Where are all those kingdoms that came against God’s chosen people? They’re all gone. But where are the Jewish people? Right back there in the land He swore to the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to have an everlasting possession.

Open your eyes, haters of Israel! Do you not fear God? What group of people have been scattered from their ancestral homeland for 2,000 years only to return and rebuild their waste cities, restore their ancient language, and make the desert blossom as a rose? There are no other people groups on this planet that have ever done that, only one, and that is Israel and the Jewish people. Why? Because that’s what God said He would do.

Interestingly, by fighting against God, individuals are only adding further legitimacy to His Word. Zechariah chapter 14 prophesied 2,500 years ago that the Lord Jesus, Israel’s Messiah, will one day go forth and fight against those nations that come against Israel. Doesn’t it show how much Yeshua loves the Jewish people that he is going to fight on their behalf?

If you want to bring prosperity to your country… love Israel. Psalm 122:6-7 says, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” which is a command, “May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces.'” [emphasis added]

Friends, if you want to bring prosperity to your country, stand with, love, and pray for Israel. 

I’m amazed at how easy it is to see that God and His Word are real, trustworthy, and true— and one of the greatest signs to show that is Israel and the Jewish people.

Unfortunately, Satan has blinded the eyes of people today to hate, not love, Israel and the Jewish people. However, there is a day coming where the Jewish people will no longer be a doormat for the Gentiles to walk all over.

Zachariah 8, one of my favorite chapters in the Bible, concludes this way, “Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'”

That is the future of Israel. When Yeshua, Israel’s Messiah, comes again, He will save them physically and spiritually. When Jesus begins His millennial reign from Jerusalem, the preeminence will shift from the Gentiles to the Jewish people.

So let me ask you again: Do you love Israel? I hope your answer is yes, I do.

The Hamas attack does not reflect the actions of most Muslims, but it does reflect the Quran. All ideas are not equal. Adolf Hitler’s ideas were not as noble as those of Florence Nightingale.
