Thankfully, Israel Standing Firm

Posted by thelamp on August 10, 2006

Israel is continuing to aggressively defend itself against Islamic aggression in Gaza and southern Lebanon. Unfortunately, much of the international community’s response is to call for a cease-fire – an action that would only benefit the terrorists.

Values voters can stand with Israel at this crucial time in her history by encouraging our elected leaders to stand with her. CMC offers you two easy ways to do so:

To help you better understand the conflict in the Middle East, CMC is offering a prophetic message from Pastor Rod Parsley, “Iran & Iraq: Impending Apocalypse,” for your gift of any size. Click here to make an online donation. If you’d prefer to mail a check, download this printable response form.

Israel is fighting against Islamic terrorists on two fronts – in Gaza in the south, and in Lebanon to the north. Israeli military officials are seeking to create a defensive line several miles north of the border until a multinational force can take its place. Israel occupied similar territory in an occupation that ended in 2000.

The fighting continues a pattern of aggression by Arab states against God’s chosen people:

  • The day Israel became a sovereign nation in 1948, five Arab armies attacked in an attempt to wipe out the fledgling nation.
  • in 1978, Israel gave the Sinai peninsula to Egypt, but that did not bring Israel peace with Egypt.
  • Israel’s ceding of Gaza to the Palestinians in 1993 has not brought peace, and its previous withdrawals from southern Lebanon have not appeased Syria or Hezbollah.

There’s little question that as terrible as the war’s images may seem on the nightly news, the war is necessary for Israel’s security. Christians in America are biblically commanded to support Israel:

Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Isaiah 62:1
For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch.

CMC urges its members and all believers to contacting their Member of Congress and U.S. Senators about the need for America to stand with Israel, especially while it is at war. An e-mail to contact legislators is available useing the form below.

You can also send an e-mail you can send to President Bush, asking him to resist pressure to call for a cease-fire. This e-mail is available here.

Pastor Rod Parsley recently preached a dynamic message, “Iran & Iraq: Impending Apocalypse,” that explains the situation in the Middle East in terms of biblical prophecy. CMC is currently offering the DVD of this message for your gift of any size. Won’t you consider a generous gift to allow CMC to keep advocating for Israel’s security?

You can also read a column Pastor Parsley recently released about the Middle East situation here.
