President Obama is slated to speak (in a special powerful position) before the UN Securtiy Council September 21st-23rd in NY where he is purportedly going to present a new “piece deal” for Israel to give up more land to unrepentant terrorist entities, Fatah and Hamas. And we who love Israel’s Jerusalem can possibly open our mouths and speak on her behalf. Taking action for Jerusalem can occur in many ways, I believe.
1 – We can pray, “Yahweh! Make Yerushalayim a praise in the earth (now) by way of the testimony of Yeshua by saints living there who cling to His finished work by virtue of His pure, shed blood and (soon) Yeshua, by Your coming to cleanse the earth of unrighteousness and to set up Your throne in the center of her heart, Zion.” (Isaiah 62:7) Our prayers are not “wishful thinking” or hope alone… but hope evidenced by faith… faith planting the seed of the true idea in the ground of our atmosphere. Paul said, “We are casting down lofty thoughts and imaginations that raise themselves up and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Messiah and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience (2nd Corinthians 10:5-6). Our prayers have wings by the power of truth from the ancient Scriptures. We speak into the heavenlies our agreement in opposition to the lies of CNN, NBC, BBS, al Jazeera, Hollywood and the occasional public servant (elected officials).
2 – And we can speak the truth in love to our friends, family and acquaintances (Zechariah 8:16 – Acts 26:25)… another way to shatter lies.
I’ve had the blessing and privilege to work with my dear friend, Esther Levens, founder of the Unity Coalition for Israel on the following “Action Alert.” I help with the occasional phrase or thought, but it’s mostly written by Esther. Find out more about her here if you’d like – http://www.israelunitycoalition.org/about/elevens.php
The “Action” is an appeal being sent directly to President Obama clarifying how we, as American and Christian (or Jewish), stand with Israel and wish he does the same as our freely elected public servant.
I hope you are aware that America’s (or any nation’s) treatment of Israel, according to Scripture (Joel 3:1-2), ranks with Abortion (Revelation 9:21 – “pharmakeia” referring to abortifacient drugs), other forms of material pride (Isaiah 1:15-17) and Babylon harlotry (Rev.18:3-5) when it comes to why we deserve His severe hand of judgement! If not for the most merciful atonement blood of His Son, Yeshua, the perfect One, we would have no hope at all!
And that we can instead BLESS Israel (with #1 and #2), and it would stay His hand of judgement and turn it rather to blessing (Genesis 12:2-3, Psalm 122:6)… THAT is a great gift of mercy! I believe that special blessing of Israel can occur upon families, cities, states and nations as individuals and communities give themselves to recognizing their Judeo-Christian heritage that springs from the legacy of Israel and stand for them (and for their continued Joel 2 revival) in agreement with the thousands of promises that call us to recognize Israel’s land and the Jews who till it (Ezekiel 36:33-36). Interesting “land” study in PDF form here.
So here the “Action Alert” from the Unity Coalition for Israel where you can “click to send” a letter directly to President Obama and appeal to him on behalf of Israel. Just click through and send him this note. The entire letter follows if you’d like to preview it first. You can actually change it as you wish before you send it as well –
To: President Barack Obama
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Vice-President Joseph Biden
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
as well as other distinguished elected officials
I respectfully ask that you make your voice heard at the UN Security Council meeting next week, protesting the Iranian genocidal threats blatantly spoken by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The dangers to Israel are accelerating with the imminent Iranian acquisition of nuclear weapons, and yet our government, by its silence, appears to side with the Islamists whose avowed goal is to eradicate the state of Israel.
President Obama, you and your administration are putting unprecedented pressure on Israel to freeze construction in what are incorrectly referred to as “the settlements,” while the much greater threat of Israel`s complete annihilation by Iran is ignored.
Under the Palestinian Charter, nothing but total take-over of Israel is acceptable. This has never been revoked. Demanding that Israelis stop building homes on their ancient land serves as a smoke screen to hide the Palestinian desire to obliterate the state of Israel.
If Israel shows weakness by accepting the U.S. demand to cease any building in Judea and Samaria, it will only encourage her enemies. Your failure to acknowledge the simple need of a sovereign nation to expand residences for its citizens causes us dismay. Every country has the obligation to allow housing for its citizens. It is a basic responsibility of any government of a free nation. Please retract this unreasonable demand.
I further ask that when you address the UN the week of September 21st that you speak out on behalf of the survival of our only reliable democratic ally in the Middle East – Israel.
Israel has endured centuries of Islamic hatred, violence, and genocide, long-preceding the current Iranian threats. The Jewish people settled the land of Israel 3,000 years ago. The historical record and basic morality give you the right to make a strong case for Israel`s right to survive as a Jewish state in its ancient homeland. And certainly, with our long-established history of friendship and shared values, it behooves the U.S. to speak out in Israel`s defense.
Unless the Palestinians first agree to recognize the very existence of Israel as a Jewish state, there can be no hope for a peaceful outcome. Following in the footsteps of Gaza, a sovereign Palestinian state, led by Hamas/Fatah terrorists, would only lead this troubled region into more chaos.
Millions of your constituents need to hear from you that U.S. policy supports Israel and that we will cease making demands that put their population at existential risk.
Our democratic ally Israel has fought this ideological battle for 61 years while sustaining our Judeo-Christian values. Please bear in mind that should Israel fall due to lack of U.S. support, we “infidel Americans” will have to take our place on the front line, waging a battle against the encroaching worldwide Jihad that is rapidly advancing within our own borders.
Please remember the lessons of history as we commemorate the devastation that struck our nation on September 11, 2001. In dealing with irrational, possibly nuclear-armed enemies, the U.S. must display strength, or its weakness will be exploited by its enemies.
This is the zero hour. A majority of Americans want our U.S. government to stand up for Israel; by so-doing we defend and preserve our own western civilization.
