PRAYER ALERT. We must stand for the current Israeli borders. They are now being threatened by the United Nations. Between now and September the UN plans to vote on imposing the pre-1967 Israeli borders, whether Israel objects to this land grab or not. These borders are indefensible. Israel’s key ally in the UN has always been the US, But even President Obama now endorses the reduced Israeli borders. This makes Israel—the only democracy beside Iraq in the Middle East—all the more vulnerable to neighboring countries dominated by Muslims. These countries have repeatedly declared their goal to destroy Israel. They are quickly gaining the military might to do so.
But what does God say about Israel? Of Abraham and his descendants He declared, “I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen. 12:3). If we bless Israel, we will be blessed. If we curse them, we will be cursed. History has borne out this verdict on nations who have opposed the Jews. So we should support the current Israeli borders. Remember that “from the standpoint of God’s choice, they are beloved for the sake of the fathers” (Rom. 11:28). Israel is the tree from which we the Gentile church grew. Israel still has a great destiny in the end times. For “a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and thus all Israel will be saved” (Rom. 11:25-26). All Israel means all those true Jews who are part of the final harvest (Rev. 7:4-8).
PRAY WITH US: Father God, You are sovereign over all the nations of the earth. You have chosen Israel to be Your people, to bear Your Word, to give birth to Your Son, and to bless all other nations. We thank You that we are joint heirs of these promises and that in Christ together. We believe that Jews and Gentiles are meant to be “one new man” (Eph. 2:15). We pray for the salvation of the Jews and for their destiny. For Jesus’ sake we stand with Israel and declare that “no weapon formed against you will prosper. And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn” (Isa. 54:17).
Help Your people in Belize to understand Israel’s crucial role in the last days. This role is detailed throughout the prophetic Scriptures–and which Satan furiously opposes, because his time is short. Prepare us for the “time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel” (Acts 1:6). As we affirm the eternal Israeli borders You established for the Promised Land, we ask you to defend the borders of Belize. We also affirm the first statement in our Constitution that Belize is “founded on principles which acknowledge the supremacy of God”. Show Yourself as God of this nation as we pray in the almighty name of Jesus. He is King of the Jews and the Gentiles forever, amen.
