Why the Imbalance?: The Bias Against Israel Is Driven By Satan’s Desire To Invalidate God’s Word

In 2022, the United Nations General Assembly passed more resolutions critical of Israel than against all other nations combined. The General Assembly approved 15 anti-Israel resolutions last year compared to 13 resolutions criticizing other countries, according to the monitoring group UN Watch.

Russia was the focus of six resolutions condemning its invasion of Ukraine. North Korea, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Syria, Iran, and the US were hit with one resolution each. Saudi Arabia, China, Lebanon, Turkey, Venezuela, and Qatar, which have poor human rights records or were involved in regional conflicts, were not dinged by any resolutions criticizing them.

Why the imbalance? Why were there no resolutions against countries that execute dissidents? The question becomes even more perplexing when you consider that Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and the only country that practices the free exercise of religion.

The answer is simple: Israel is pivotal to the end times scenario and the central focus of the coming Great Tribulation. 

Psalms 94:14 KJV – “For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.”

The over-focus on the nation of Israel, by not only the UN but the rest of the world also, is spiritual and is driven by Satan’s desire to eliminate the Jews and thus invalidate God’s word.

Romans 11:1-4 KJV – “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.”

Of all the nations of the earth, God chose Israel as His own special people. Of all the nations of the earth, God brought His Son into the world through the nation of Israel. Of all the nations of the earth, salvation is offered to the world through the Jews, and the message of redemption came to the Jews first, then also to the Greek (meaning non-Jews or Gentiles).

The power of the Holy Spirit that came on Pentecost came to the Jews first in order that they might be witnesses in Jerusalem and Judea. Persecution began to arise and many Jews dispersed to Samaria and then on to the Gentile regions, and the message of salvation began to spread among the Gentiles and will continue unto the ends of the earth.

God is a God of order and we can take heart in the fact that all He promised to and about Israel is coming to pass just as He said it would. Jerusalem is where the church was born, as written in Acts 1:8, and the city is now a burdensome stone to all nations as prophesied in Zechariah 12:3. If there is a lesson that all of us should learn from the nation of Israel it is that God is faithful to His word.

Jesus came to the Jews first and then to the Greek, just as the Bible said the Messiah would. Those who tarried in Jerusalem, as Jesus told them to, received the power to be witnesses on Pentecost just as Jesus said they would. The church began to spread from Jerusalem to Judea then on to Samaria, and is continuing to spread to the ends of the earth, just as the Bible said it would. 

If all that is true (and it is), then that means this is too:

Romans 8:28 KJV – “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

The world is a mess right now but there is good on the horizon for those who love God. One day we will meet the Lord in the air, and from that point we will always be with the Lord. How do we know? Jesus said He would come again receive us unto Himself that where He is, we would be too. (John 14:3) He’s never yet failed to keep a promise, and Israel is the greatest proof of that we could ever need.

Hebrews 10:23 KJV – “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)”

Keep looking up. The future is far brighter than this present darkness, and the One who promised is faithful and has proven Himself to be so time and again. One day will be the day He will come for us, and we can and should live every day like it might be today!

Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
