LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Israel is our democratic ally

Sep 13, 2011

God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills and all of the Earth gave the Jews the land from the Euphrates River southward to the Arabian Desert and westward to the Mediterranean Sea. (Genesis 12: 1-3; 15: 18-21; 17: 7-8; 26:1-5; Deuteronomy 11:24; Joshua 1:4)

Americans and all non-Jews have been blessed through Israel who gave us the Bible and our Savior/Messiah our Lord Jesus Christ. We will receive more blessings when God restores Israel to their Kingdom with Jesus as their King. (John 3:16-17; Romans 11:11-24)

God promised the world and the Jews that he, Jesus, will be King in Israel. (Isaiah 7:13-14; 9:6-7; 11: 1; Jeremiah 23: 5; Ezekiel 34: 23; 37: 24; Hosea 3:4-5; Matthew 2: 1-2)

The 10 nations that will attack Israel probably will be Magog — (1) Russia, Gomer, Meshech and Togarmah;  (2) Turkey, Tubal; (3) Syria, Persia; (4) Iran, Put; (5) Libya; (6) Egypt, Cush; (7) Sudan; (8) Ethiopia, Sheba; (9) Yemen, and Dedan; (10) Saudi Arabia. (Ezekiel 38: 1-13)

Good advice for Jews, Christians, Islamists, agnostics and atheists is found in the Psalms, which says: “Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the Earth take their stand, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against His anointed, saying, 'Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!' He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury saying, 'But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My Holy mountain.' I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You. Ask of me, and I will surely give You the nations as your inheritance, and the very ends of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware. Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; take warning O judges of the earth. Worship the Lord with reverence ad rejoice with trembling. Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way. For His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!” (Psalms: 2: 1-2 NASB)
