What Is God's Plan for Israel on 70th Anniversary? - HAMILTON STRATEGIES

It's been a busy few days for headlines surrounding Israel—from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exposing Iran's lies to the U.S. withdrawal of the Iran nuclear deal to the impending 70th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation on May 14, 1948.
The American Pastors Network (APN) has been following all this news on its popular radio program, "Stand in the Gap Today," heard on 425 stations around the country.
Nearly once a week, "Stand in the Gap Today" host and APN President Sam Rohrer focuses on issues surrounding Israel by welcoming expert guests on the topic, as well as addressing news coming out of the Middle East from a biblical and constitutional perspective.
"Last week, Benjamin Netanyahu called a news-shattering news conference about the lies of Iran regarding its nuclear program and figuratively shook the ground underneath the Iran nuclear deal that was deceptively negotiated between the leaders of Iran and former President Barack Obama," Rohrer said. "But before this expose, Israel literally shook the ground in Syria as it inflicted a wound not only against Syrian forces, but as an attack against Iran and its ambitions to destroy Israel and the United States. Although they may think it's thousands of miles and several time zones away, Christians are directly impacted by news like this, and must be up to speed on all that is happening daily in the Middle East and how it relates back to God's Word.
"Now more than ever, the faithful must be tuned in to God's plans for this world, our country and the nation of Israel, which on Monday, will look back on the 70 years since becoming a nation," he added. "Where has Israel been, where is it headed and what is God's plan for this nation? These are questions important to American Christians everywhere."
"Stand in the Gap Today" will address Israel and Iran again today on the program. The show can be heard live online from noon to 1 p.m. EST at American Pastors at the orange "Listen Live" button on the right-hand side of the webpage, or find a station here.

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog: Israelis mark the 70th anniversary of the historic U.N. “Partition Plan” vote to reestablish the Jewish State.


New post on Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Israelis mark the 70th anniversary of the historic U.N. “Partition Plan” vote to reestablish the Jewish State. Sadly, the conflict is not over. We must still pray for & seek peace, especially as followers of Jesus.

by joelcrosenberg
Seventy years ago -- on November 29th, 1947 -- history was made.
The United Nations General Assembly voted in favor of Resolution 181 (aka, the "Partition Plan") to divide the land of British Mandated Palestine to create a sovereign Israeli Jewish state and a sovereign Palestinian Arab state.
The plan was controversial. It was by no means clear the resolution would pass. Jews and Christians around the world listened by radio to the vote anxiously, prayerfully. And to their astonishment, in the end the resolution passed.
  • Thirty-three states voted in favor, including the United States.
  • Thirteen states voted against.
  • Ten states abstained.
True, Jewish leaders living in Palestine at the time wanted much more land than the U.N. plan offered. But in the end they accepted the plan. After two thousand years in exile from the Biblical land of Israel, the world was finally give Jews legal permission to re-gather and rebuild the ancient ruins.
Six months later -- on May 14th, 1948 -- David Ben Gurion formally declared Israel's independence. Tragically, five Arab states immediately launched a war to destroy the reborn State of Israel.
Seventy years later, the conflict still is not resolved. Millions of Palestinians live in poverty and discouragement. Their leaders have been offered peace treaties multiple times by multiple Israeli leaders, but thus far have not agree.
That said, there has been progress in the region.
  • In November 1977, Egyptian President Anwar el-Sadat stunned Israel and the world by making a historic and completely unexpected visit to Jerusalem to address the Knesset.
  • In September 1978, President Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Began spent thirteen days at Camp David with President Jimmy Carter hammering out the framework of a peace treaty.
  • On March 26, 1979, Sadat and Begin met at the White House and formally signed a comprehensive peace treaty with Israel, ending that conflict and establishing full diplomatic and economic ties.
  • On October 26, 1994, Jordanian King Hussein and Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin signed a comprehensive peace treaty between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the State of Israel.
  • In recent years, a growing number of Sunni Arab nations -- including Saudi Arabia -- are quietly building diplomatic, intelligence and security relationships with Israel.
In Psalm 34:14, believers are commanded to "seek peace and pursue it." In Psalm 122:6, believers are commanded to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem." The Lord Jesus told His disciples, "Blessed are the peacemakers." (Matthew 5:9)
As a Jewish person, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, and a follower of Jesus, I am grateful for this anniversary, as I believe it marks in no insignificant way evidence of God keeping His Abrahamic Covenant with the Jewish people. Despite our sin and rebellion, the God of Israel continues to be gracious and merciful to His people. He promised to bring us back to the land, and He is keeping His promise. He giving us a land we don't deserve as He calls us back to Himself and His Word.
At the same time, as I love Israel and want her to be safe and free and prosperous and to know and faithful to the Lord God Almighty, I pray for peace. I seek to be a peacemaker. I seek to love and bless my Palestinian neighbors. How I want to see them flourish, to have safety and freedom and prosperity and to know and be faithful to the Lord God Almighty, as well.
Ultimately, I believe only the Messiah can heal these wounds and bring true and lasting peace and justice in the Middle East. Until then, I pray and work for the Church to be kind, wise and gracious Ambassadors of Christ, loving both sides, praying for both sides, and seeking peace and pursuing it. Amen.
