Jesus is Lord! We belong to Jesus.
We are Christian because Jesus is the only one way to be saved from sin and make it to Heaven. There are no other ways by which we will be saved except through faith in Jesus. We must acknowledge our sin (Jesus, I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness), accept Jesus as our savior (Jesus I believe that you died on the cross and paid the full penalty for all of my sins), repent (Lord Jesus, I repent for my sins) agree to turn away from our sin and sin no more (Lord Jesus, I am willing to turn away from all of my sins), invite Jesus to come into our hearts (Jesus please come into my heart, I accept You as my Lord and Savior). Congratulations, you have just accepted Jesus as your Lord and savior! Join a Bible based church where you will be encouraged to surrender your will to Jesus and do His will every day.
We Stand with Israel
Not only do we stand with Israel, we also declare, with full authority, that the United States of America stands with Israel as well. Israel’s God is our God and Israel’s people are our people.
But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” (Ruth 1:16 – 17)
What Ruth said to Naomi is true of those of us who follow Jesus. Ruth was considered a foreigner in Israel, her family of origin worshiped pagan god’s and they were not the type of people who would be allowed to marry into a traditional Jewish family. She was considered less than, not good enough and unworthy. But, when we finish the account of what happened to Ruth we see that a wealthy Jewish man took her in and married her, he redeemed her. This is exactly what Jesus did for us. He married us and we are now His people and His Father is now our Father (your people will be my people); therefore, Jewish people are our people and the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob is our God. Nothing will separate us from the love of Jesus, the Messiah, not even death will separate us from the love of Jesus (Romans 8:39) so everything that Ruth said more than two thousand years ago is true today.
They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. And you will be called priests of the Lord, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. (Isaiah 61:4 – 7)
In fulfillment of prophesy that came through Isaiah, we are committing to rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated. Therefore, we help Israel financially by sending our physical help and our money in order to rebuild the ancient ruins and to restore the places long devastated.
Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring! (Romans 11:11 – 12)
Our salvation, which is in Jesus the Messiah, is so sweet; therefore, we pray every day that Israel will come, come to share in the sweetness of our shared Messiah, he died for them too. We include the Jews by calling them our brothers and sisters and we pray that the will come.
If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.”Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble. For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either. (Romans 11:17 – 21)
We recognize Abraham, Issac and Jacob as our forefathers, the root through whom Jesus was brought to us to save us from sin and the root through whom God sent His Holy Word. We welcome our Jewish brothers and sisters to partake in the fullness of the Glory of God that is experienced when you accept Jesus as the Messiah. Along with Jesus, we stand at the door and knock and we hope and pray that Israel will invite Jesus in so that His restoration, His miracles, His joy, His love and all of His many blessings can be bestowed on God’s chosen people, Israel.
As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies for your sake; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you. For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. (Romans 11:28)
We have all sinned. God has given us grace and mercy in Jesus the Messiah. Please accept God’s gift today. We love Israel, we honor Israel and we pray that Israel will come today. There is room for all.
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.
God wants all to come, not just Gentiles but Jews as well. He will vindicate the Jews through Jesus the Messiah. We pray for that day to come quickly.
We love you, God bless you. Pray for our people Israel as we pray for them.
