“The Land of Israel”: A Perspective of an American Christian (Video)

By on December 18, 2013

“The Land of Israel” Israel is a country who is in constant struggle to simply, exist.

I am a Christian, not a Jew but I have a love for Israel and the Jews that will never be distinguished. I am in obedience to God because God says in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless who bless you, those who curse you I will curse; all the families of the earth will be blessed because of you.”

Israel is a holy land with many nationalities and a country with immense beauty that must be seen in person to be truly admired. You only have to stand in Israel to understand why so many have fought over this beautiful land. I was astonished while in Israel because I saw that in most Israeli homes there is a special room where they go when rockets are being fired at them.

Americans can’t relate with this issue because we do not experience living in constant fear of terrorist attacks as Israel does. A repeat of 9-11 is not a daily fear unlike in Israel where it is far more likely. If Americans experienced being in constant fear from the next terrorist attack as Israel does than Israel would have far more support from American people.

I know for a fact that the Israelis are good people because I saw their actions with my own eyes while in Israel. Israelis are some of the most intelligent, diverse people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Israel is the second most educated country in the world following Canada. The Israelis produce medicine and technology that help the rest of the world just as God said they would.While in Israel I saw a strong love for the American people and a desire for America to stand with Israel, I will never forget the kindness I experienced from the Israeli people while visiting.

I was treated as if I was an Israeli citizen even though I was not Jewish. It saddens me to see how hard the leaders of Israel desire to show the world that what they stand for is good but sadly their words fall upon deaf ears. Imagine the state of New York being cut off from the United States and placed directly in the Middle East where everyone surrounding them hates everything they stand for.

Israel is very similar to America and anyone who is against Israeli Ideologies is also against American ideologies. Iran for example is very open about their hate towards Israel which is also an indirect insult to America too.

Israel is a nation very similar to America in many ways and their only intent is to simply have a chance to exist among other people in a home they can call their own.

    What if we built an ISLAND in the MIDDLE EAST and put the PALESTINIANS on that land so the ISRAELIS have all of ISRAEL and the PALESTINIANS have their own country too. Look at all the islands they have made in the GULF that people now live on.

    I love Israel and will make it a “Priority to pray for them consistently in 2014” you are the nation of God and God will prevail! ! He is coming soon! ! He is a God of love, forgiveness and Mercy but do not interpret that as a sign of weakness, for he is coming back to take back what is rightfully his, the nation of Israel., Israel i stand with you all the way!! Proud to be a child of the most living high God and an American.
