We Stand With Israel!
 
March 3, 2015

 

Psalms 122:6
"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper who you love."
As Sister Joy explained last month, those that stand with Israel,
have a promise from the Lord that they too will be blessed.
God told Abraham,
Genesis 12.3
“And I will bless them who bless you, and curse him who curses you:
and in you shall all families of the Earth be blessed.”
What a Promise!


As a Nation:
The United States faces a crossroad.
Our Nation has a choice to make.
As a Nation, will we Stand with Israel?
or…
 Will we become another Nation that turns its back on God's People.
The Decision and Choice is ours.
In my personal opinion,
History was made today as the Israel’s Prime Minister poured his heart out
to us as a Nation, and ask us to Stand with Israel.
He explained that as we stand together in our decisions
against our enemies, we will stand strong.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave His Speech to our Congress.
He spoke Truth about Israel, The U.S., and the World.
The Very Important Question is,
Will we, as a Nation stand with Israel?
The Leader of our Country did not attend this Historic Meeting of Congress.
Nor did the President see the need to send a representative from the White House to represent Him.  
It has been noted that Obama did not even watch Prime Minister’s Benjamin Netanyahu’s Speech.
This is not only disrespectful to our Ally Israel,
but to the God of Israel and the God we serve. 
Obama as a Leader of our Country will some day have to stand before God
and answer for his deeds, for his words, and for his heart.

As an Individual:
Will we stand with Israel?
It may be said, “Sister Joy, how can I make a difference?
It is our Nations’ Leaders who make the decisions in our Country. 
How can I make a decision to stand with Israel?”
This is how we as Children of God can make a difference. Let me explain:
 History was made today (March 3, 2015)
Today for the 3rd time,  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to our Country about the
continual threat of Countries that have hearts filled with hate and murder for God’s People.
Let us a Christian acknowledge,
We too are are hated by the same enemies that hate Israel.
We must open our natural and spiritual eyes and see that our enemies are
killing Christians by the hundreds simply because they are Christians, 
and will not denounce their love for Jesus, the Son of God.
These same people that hate Christians, also hate Israel.
 
You and I are watching Obama and many others that stand with him,
say with their mouths,
“We stand with Israel.”
Then we hear them say out of the other side of their mouths statements to the contrary.
As we continue to listen to them speak we hear what is really in their hearts.
We can see they say one thing with their mouths, but their hearts are far from God.
We must be very careful to not just say we stand with God’s People with our Mouths!
We must stand with Israel in our Hearts!!!
 Believe Sister Joy when I say God Knows and Looks for those who say with their mouth one thing,
but their hearts are far from Him! (Isaiah 29:13)
If we say we Love God and stand with Him,
we have better make sure our Hearts and Mouths are in agreement!

You may ask, “Sister Joy, why is this so important to us as Christians. We are not Jewish. We
are Christians! Why are you teaching us to stand with Israel?”
In the Bible we are told that if we are Christians (a Child of God who has accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour)
we have been grafted into the Family of God. (Romans 11:17-24)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that our Relationship with Israel is more than Politics,
but we are Family. Here in Romans Chapter 11, the Holy Spirit explains to us that if we choose to be a Child of God,
God has prepared a way for us to be connected to the Family of God.
We can be grafted in. We will all (Jews and Gentiles…us) receive our life from the Common Root
that was originally given to Israel so many years ago. Remember last week, when we studied about Abraham
and how God call him out to be the Father of His People? Today is still the Church Age.
We can still be grafted into the Kingdom of God. It is our Choice.
Please read Romans Chapter 11, it is Beautiful.
As a Child of God we are now Spiritually related to Israel! We have been grafted in.
We do not replace Israel as some teach. We are simply a branch that has been grafted in and we are not
to boast lest we too be broken off because of our lack of Faith.
As a Child of God  whether we  are living here in the U.S. or in any other Country on the Earth,
we can and must make our own individual decisions to stand with Israel
no matter what the Leaders of our Countries choose to do.
As an Individual, in our Hearts and with our own Mouths,
we can look to Heaven as the Leaders of our personal homes,
 and Raise our Hands to God and say,
“Father God, we come to You in the Name of Jesus,
We want to say,  as for me and my house we will serve the Lord! (Joshua 24:15)
We will serve You, our God in Sincerity and in Truth. We will serve You with our Mouths and with our Hearts.
We stand with Israel because we are Family!
Israel and Children of God are feed from the same Common Root…
and that is You, Father God!
No matter what comes or goes in the world. We confess Jesus Christ, Your Son, as Our Saviour,
and we stand with Israel with our Mouths and our Hearts!”
We will all as Individuals someday have to stand before God and give account and answer for
our individual deeds, and for our words, and for our heart.

The Very Important Questions for us is ,
Do we stand with Israel as an Individuals?
Will look to God and say, As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
Will we serve our God in Sincerity and in Truth?
Will we serve God with our Mouths and in our Hearts?


Today as Individuals we once again stand at a Spirtual Crossroad.
Even if we stay silent with our Mouths, we speak with our Hearts.
What will our Answer be ?

Joshua 24:14-15
"Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth:
and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side
of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD,
choose you this day whom you will serve;
whether the gods which your fathers served
who were on the other side of the flood,
or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell:

but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."
