SHOULD CHRISTIANS SUPPORT ISRAEL?
Is the nation of Israel an antichrist nation? If so should Christians
I realize this is a question many might feel strongly about
depending upon their view of Revelation and prophecy - but
definitely worth discussing.
Here are some Biblical facts:
1Jn 2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the
truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
1Jn 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?
He is ANTICHRIST, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the
Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
We can be certain that the national religion of Israel rejects Jesus
as the Messiah.
Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is
that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Rom 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and
circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter;
whose praise is not of men, but of God.
It appears that Paul was saying that one is not a part of Israel by
birth or circumcision of the flesh. That would mean that the true
Israel of God are those who are circumcised in the heart - not
flesh. Israel in the spirit - not physical.
Jesus said that the physical nation of Israel was to be left desolate.
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets,
and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have
gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens
under her wings, and ye would not!
Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
So, what do you think brothers and sisters? Should Christians
support the nation of Israel or are we the new spiritual Israel of
