Scripture reveals to us the thinking of God, His plan, His purposes, His policies, His promises, His provision and His protection.  No part of His revelation can be imperfect without negating the rest.  Conversely, if one part of His revealed will is made known and is evident, whether historically or on the basis of faith, all of His revelation is valid and reliable.  For example, regarding fulfilling the Law in every aspect by the incarnation and subsequent work of Christ on the Cross to accomplish salvation, Jesus Himself declared that He had fulfilled the requirements of a righteous God in bearing the sins of the world.  His declaration from the Cross … “it is finished,” meant that mankind could have relationship with God through simple faith in the finished work of Christ on the Cross.  The Apostle Paul states emphatically that ... “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him” (Rom. 5:8 NASB).  The reality of the offer of eternal life to all who place their faith in Christ has been attested by millions who have made that decision to place their trust in Christ.  John declares in his gospel … “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (I John 1:12 NASB).  The same Scriptures that reveal that Jesus Christ fulfilled the Father’s plan of redemption also address God’s policy of protection and preservation of the nation that He had chosen to bring Messiah into the world.  In Genesis, Moses tells of God’s promise concerning a nation yet to be formed.  Speaking of a future nation to be called Israel and a people to known as Jews, God promised Abraham … “And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Gen. 12:2-3 NASB).  Furthermore, God reaffirmed … “I am the LORD who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to give you this land to possess it” (Gen. 15:7 NASB).  These statements reveal God’s thinking toward Israel and the Jews, toward the land that God has given them, and a promise that He will preserve them in spite of satanic attempts to eradicate them from the earth.  It is this latter promise that has major implications in human history.  The grave yard of nations can be viewed in relationship to their attitude toward Israel and the Jew. It is an inescapable Divine axiom -- God will personally bring to an end any people or nation that is anti-Semitic.  On the other hand, there is great blessing and prosperity for any people or nation that befriends the Jew and Israel.  No greater evidence of this has been God’s blessing on the United States of America.  The blessings of God on our nation are a historical reality in fulfillment of His promise to Abraham.  In the past, the United States has defended the right of Israel to be a nation in the land that God gave her.  However, there appears to be a change of attitude in this country as our leadership fails to openly proclaim its protection of Israel, her right to possess the land, the necessity for her to defend and secure her borders and to denounce terrorist attacks on her citizens.  Such an attitude on the part of America, if allowed to continue, will inevitably bring Divine judgment on our homeland.  That Israel and the Jews are not always correct in their actions is no surprise, for that is true of any nation or people.  However, God has declared His promise, policy, protection, and preservation of these people. Be warned America, for God is not mocked or slack concerning His promises.  He will fulfill His Word in protecting the Jews and bless any nation that comes to their defense or discipline those who side with Israel’s enemies.
