Should Christians support the Nation of Israel

See also

Christians should and need to support the nation of Israel because the Jewish people are the apple of God’s Eye. Zechariah speaks of Jerusalem in an important context when He states, “He found him in a desert place, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye." (Zechariah 2:8). It becomes very clear from studying God’s Word that the nation of Israel has a very special place in God’s heart. God has called the nation of Israel as a ‘chosen nation’ and that anyone who touches Israel, touches the apple of His eye.
Because of this special relationship Satan has sought to destroy God’s chosen people, the nation of Israel. Satan has tried to corrupt the seed of the Messiah (Genesis 3:15 and Genesis chapter 6). Satan stirred up Haman in the book of Esther in which he tried to destroy the Jewish people. This current map shows the nations colored in black that are presently seeking the destruction of Israel. You can see that the nation of Israel is surrounded by the enemies of God. See figure 1
God is faithful and will keep His promises for the Nation of Israel. Genesis 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed." The main point here is that God has promised to bless the man or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God. God states that one day He will cleanse the nation of Israel and “"Then the nations around you that remain will know that I, Jehovah, have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I, Jehovah, have spoken, and I will do it." (Ezekiel 36:24)
Yes, As Christians we need to support Israel. Paul in Romans 11:25-29 tells us that God is not done with Israel. We should support any nation that supports the Word of God.
God Bless
