President Trump has made it very clear that he is in support of Israel as a nation and the Jewish people. And Prime Minister Netanyahu has reciprocated and accepted the allegiance saying to President Trump, “You are a great friend of Israel. Over the years, you have expressed your support consistently, and I deeply appreciate it. I look forward to working with you to advance security, prosperity and peace.”
There are many Biblical reasons to support Israeli people and the land. God refers to Israel repeatedly, prophetically, and says He will bring salvation to the whole world through her. He speaks of her like no other nation on Earth, as His chosen, and as a spiritual wife.
When we look at prophecy about the end times we see it in the process of being fulfilled. At My Olive Tree we have been blessed to be part of Israel’s restored beauty. Isaiah 27:6 says, “Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit.” This is happening today! We are planting olive trees and vineyards in this barren land and the fruits of these harvests are being distributed across the globe. How exciting! What this means for the Believer is that we are getting closer and closer, by the day, to Jesus’ return for His people!
America owes its foundation to the nation of Israel. America was founded on Christian principles of liberty and the value of individual human life. This is from God’s instruction to the Jewish people whom He set apart for His purpose. He wanted His people to be a representation to the whole world about God’s goodness, kindness and character. Unfortunately in recent times, our nation has drifted away from its foundation, just as God’s Word predicted. In 2 Timothy 3, the apostle Paul writes about the end times and godlessness in the last days. There will be pride without love, unforgiving hearts, slander, and love of self. Can anyone deny this is happening today?
God knows us so well. With these end time events we can often get caught up in the tragedy and hurt in our world and wonder—“Where is God in all of this?” But He is faithful when we are not, and leaves us with a promise…
“Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will gather you and your children from east and west and from north and south. I will bring my sons and daughters back to Israel from the distant corners of the earth. All who claim me as their God will come, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them.”—Isaiah 43:5-7
In the current events, America and Israel are uniting for peace. With President Trump’s message of support, we cannot help but see God’s hand in this divine plan of restoration for His people. Israel stands beside us, and we should stand beside her. Israel is a strong supporter of and advocate for Middle East peace. Let us join together with Israel for peace and watch God’s hand at work as He restores His people and brings us together in Christ Jesus for His glory. We invite you today to partner with us at My Olive Tree to plant in the desert and promote peace and restoration in the Holy Land.
