To promote an understanding of the Jewishness of the Scriptures which were written by Jewish men, about the Jewish Messiah, within the context of first century Jewish culture in Israel.

Why Should Christians Support Israel?

As believers in Yeshua, the roots of our Christian faith run deep into the soil of the land of Israel.

The Jewish people were chosen by God to be His unique people.  Through the Jews, God's plan was to reach the whole world.

To them God gave His Promises and Covenants; to them He sent the Patriarchs (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob); to them God revealed Himself in the desert of Saudi Arabia; to them was given the Tanakh (Old Testament) through Moses; and to them He gave the Promised Land, Israel.

To the Jews, God sent His Son, Messiah Yeshua first, then He choose to redeem all of mankind because of them; and through a small group of Jewish men God gave us His Word, the Scriptures.

Finally, to the Jews, Yeshua will return to rescue them from the destruction yet to be inflicted upon them by their enemies (Ezekiel 38-39). At that time, Yeshua will set up His earthly Kingdom, which will be headquartered in Jerusalem.

As believers, we are greatly indebted to the Jewish people and we owe them our support, for we have been greatly blessed through them.

It has often puzzled me how a person can claim to love Jesus, yet hate His people. They seem to forget that Jesus is also a Jew.

God said to Abraham, "I will bless those that bless you, and curse those that curse you."  Everything depends on how a person treats Israel.

Simple food for thought.
Shalom, Dawn
