Support Israel at the United Nations on September 21st!

There is an important meeting at the United Nations on September 21st. It is the Durban III meeting which will serve as a platform for anti-Israel nations to denounce Israel. On that day there is a demonstration of pro-Israel supporters being held at the Dag Hamarskjold Plaza in front of the UN. I encourage you to watch this short video which explains the situation and that you prayerfully seek the Lord on how to show your support for Israel and denounce the unjust propaganda of the Durban meeting.

Top Ten Reasons to Support Israel (from David Hocking)

1. Because Israel is the most frequently mentioned subject in the Bible next to the LORD Himself! “Israel” is mentioned 2566 times in the Bible.

2. Because God has chosen Israel out of all nations! – Deut. 7:6 (Isaiah 41:8; 43:1; 44:1; 45:4; 48:10)

3. Because God has identified Himself with Israel! – “The LORD God of Israel” – 108 times in the Bible. “The God of Israel” – 203 times. “The Holy One of Israel” – 31 times. Bible never identifies Himself with any other nation.

4. Because God has a special love for Israel! – The LORD chose Israel not because they were better than other nations but because of His love for her (Deut. 7:8; see also Isaiah 63:7; Jeremiah 31:1-3).

5. Because God has given her Land that He calls His own Land! – Genesis 15:18; 17:7-8 – everlasting covenant – reemphasized over 100 years later to David in Psalm 105:8-11; Leviticus 25:2, 23).

6. Because God will never forsake Israel! – God’s promise is not based on Israel’s performance but His immutable faithfulness – Isaiah 41:17; 49:13-16; 54:5-8; 60:15-16; 62:11-12; Psalm 89:30-37; Leviticus 26:44; Jeremiah 31:3-37; Romans 11:1-2.

7. Because God will destroy all nations who attack Israel! –Isaiah 41:11-12; 63:1-6; 66:15-16; Zechariah 12:9; 14:3; Revelation 19:11-21.

8. Because God will restore Israel to her Promised Land! God is not through with Israel! – Deut. 30:3-10; Isaiah 35:10; 43:5-7; 51:11; Jeremiah 30:1-2; Ezekiel 36:24, 28; 37:13-14; Amos 9:13-14. May 14, 1948 saw the rebirth of Israel and June 1967 Jerusalem was restored to her. She is prospering and being persecuted just as God said would happen!

9. Because God will come and dwell in the midst of Israel! – Zechariah 2:10-12.

10. Because God will bring salvation to the WHOLE world through the Messiah of Israel! – Isaiah 11:1-10; 42:, 6; 43:11, 25; 44:21-22; 45:17, 22-23; 49:5-16; 52:10; 53:1-6; 59:2, 20; 60:3; 61:1-3, 10; 62:1, 11; Jeremiah 23:5-6; Romans 11:25-27. Salvation is “of the Jews.”
