Pastor Ramiro Peña of Christ the King Church in Waco, TX, understands the importance of the United States’ president to support Israel. As a faith advisor to President Trump, Pastor Ramiro Peña speaks biblical truth when it comes to making critical decisions.
No one can deny the biblical truth of Genesis 12:2-3 and how it is playing out in our political world today.
“I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”—Genesis 12:2-3
Do you want to be blessed?
Most would answer, ‘yes.’
But understand this, God did not bless you for you to build your own kingdom. He blessed you, just as He did with Israel, so that you can be a blessing to others. It is by God’s grace, power, and sovereignty that we align with His will.
And when we do, we receive blessings for…
- Our families
- Our communities
- Our nation
Ultimately, God wants to bless us so that we can move into mountains that will bless the nations! Starting first with the apple of His eye—Israel.
“For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.’”—Zechariah 2:8
Great Blessings Are Released from Israel Right Now!
It is by no accident that Israel is one of the leading nations for…
And let us not forgot the greatest blessing that came from Israel—Jesus!
God’s Word in Genesis 12:2-3 is Still Going Forth
Israel is still being used by God to bless the nations. It is amazing to see God’s Word remain faithful and true. Genesis 12:3 says that God will bless those who stand with Israel and curse those who do not.
Can you see this truth being fulfilled in our nation today?
As a nation, the United States stands with Israel. Our president has been bold to declare Jerusalem as the capital. He has shown bravery when moving the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
His role as our nation’s leader a reflection of the truth declared in Genesis 12:2-3, “…I will bless those who bless you…”
Pastor Ramiro Peña says this…
“There are nations that bless Israel and there are nations that curse Israel… Who is the most blessed nation in all of human history? The United States of America. Who has blessed Israel the most in all of human history? The United States of America. That’s not a coincidence.”
Pastor Peña’s point is that we cannot forget the fact that God’s heart is not only that we stand with Israel, but also—as a blessed nation ourselves—we bless Israel.
How Do We, as a Nation, Bless Israel?
In order to do this…
We must understand that there is a need to have people in administration and leadership who view Israel the same way we do—as God’s chosen nation.
We must understand that a president who sees Israel as God’s people is necessary.
We must understand that we can personally bless Israel by…
- Praying for the peace of Jerusalem…
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.’”—Psalm 122:6-7
- Praying for the leaders of this nation. Pray that President Donald Trump’s plans to continue to stand with Israel will prosper…
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior…”—1 Timothy 2:1-3
- Strengthening the alliance by planting an olive tree in Trump Grove…
Pastor Ramiro Peña has partnered with My Olive Tree to plant olive trees in Israel. He is helping to fill Trump Grove—an olive grove just beyond the borders of the contested Golan Heights and the Trump Heights settlement—with mature trees and saplings in honor of the United States’ president.

When we stand together and bless Israel, our nation is strengthened, aligned, and positioned to receive God’s favor and assignment. If we don’t, we will be ill-equipped to influence in the mountains for which God has placed us for His Kingdom work.
So, let’s move forward with what God has in store for our nation. And you can move forward with confidence that God is eager to bless those who bless His people.
