Israel & Christians Today
Biblical understanding about Israel
We are living in momentous days. The Jewish people are coming home to the land. Collapse of the Israel/Palestinian peace talks. The nations of the world in conflict. Rise of extreme Islam. Demise of the US and rise of other global superpowers. Financial, environmental and energy crises, confusion in Europe. Rise of humanist secularism, and collapse of institutional churches. The Gospel of the Kingdom being preached in many nations and languages.
Jesus said – learn the lesson of the fig tree. Heed the signs of His coming. Keep watch and pray. The core mission of Christians for Israel is to raise awareness in the Church about God’s purposes with Israel and the Jewish people, and the implications of this for Israel, the Church and the nations. We seek to do this primarily by training and equipping speakers and communicators, and through the media.
In 2013 the members of the Christians for Israel family worked tirelessly. Much was achieved. One senses we are on the verge of ‘big things’. We must have boldness to walk through the doors that God opens. At the same time, it is of the utmost importance that we remain on our knees, seeking the Lord. We must not be tempted into formulating our own plans, but must ‘do the works that He has prepared before for us to walk in’. All of this requires great discernment and wisdom.
We thank God for sending His Son into the world to save sinners and set us free. We look to His coming again in glory, when He will assume His rightful place as King over the nations, on the throne of David in the midst of His people Jacob (Luke 1:33). In Romans 15 we read that Jesus Christ became a servant of the circumcision, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs, so that the Gentiles may glorify God. The Apostle Paul quotes from Isaiah: the root of Jesse will rule over the nations, and the Gentiles will hope in Him. The restoration of the Jewish people to the land is a sure sign that His coming is at hand. May the hope of the coming of Messiah be a comfort to the Jewish people, and strengthen and inspire us to do the work set before us.
