Israel must trust her God and Messiah above America

One of the few subjects on which there is unanimity in Israel has to do with the country’s relations with the United States. Some within the Israeli political establishment feel this relationship is immune to any change.

A little bit more tense than healthy. It will get worse for Benjamin Netanyahu.

America’s attitude to Israel rests on three major pillars. The first is the idealistic dimension in United States foreign policy: America’s commitment to fight for and defend democracies abroad. Since Israel is a democracy, supporting Israel is an American interest.

The second is the American Jewish community, which serves as a bridge between Israel and the American people. The third pillar is shared security and foreign affairs interests.

The US-Israel relationship is strong, but not indestructible.

Official American statements reiterate the two nations’ shared values and the commitment to Israel as a Jewish state.

However, the mainstream media’s depiction of Israel as oppressing the Palestinians and widespread support for this view among many of America’s allies are liable to erode Israel’s image as a democracy in the eyes of the American public.

Given the environment of change the United States is facing in the coming decades, the Israel-US alliance cannot be taken for granted.

Zechariah 14: 1-2 says;

Behold, a day is coming for the LORD when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.

The US-Israel relationship is NOT indestructible. In fact, there are many forces in the US, especially in Universities and the US State Department, which are deeply hostile to Israel.  Even if they stay in the minority, the power of the US is fading and other countries which are less friendly to Israel are on the ascent. The current international order will not remain in place forever.

Israel must learn to stop looking to Washington for help and turn instead to the God of the Bible and the salvation which is only available through His Son Jesus Christ.

Nothing and nobody else can save them.

One thought on “Israel must trust her God and Messiah above America

  1. Amen, may the jewish/israeli people realise their strength and deliverer is not president barry from kenya nor the USA, not even the idf but the God who chose Big A to move to Canaan and have some kids in order to make a people to make Him known to the world. This same God lives and watches over Israel and is not finished, wake up o Israel, return to your God through the Son He sent to you in the flesh, the one He wrote to you about in your scriptures.
    In actual fact America needs Israel more than the reverse, unfortunately America’s treatment of Israel will result in the same judgement against it that my country is recieeving for my countries treachery against Israel, namely failure and decline in every area of life/economy.
