Every Christian should wholeheartedly support Israel and the Jewish people. There are many Biblical reasons for this support, but there is one that is highlighted in the pages of Scripture. The eternal promise of God is that those who are a blessing to the descendants of Abraham will be blessed by Him. Genesis 12:3 is not a conditional or limited promise; it is an everlasting promise that is still in effect today.

Because Isaac was the covenant child of Abraham and Sarah, the land was promised to him and his descendants rather than to Ishmael and his descendants. Because of that covenant, the blessing promised in Genesis 12:3 is especially meant for those who are a blessing to the Jewish people.

How can we bless the Jewish people? One of the most important ways in which we can be a blessing to them and secure God’s blessing on our lives and families is to support their God-given right to live in safety and security in the Promised Land of Israel and their eternal capital, the Holy City of Jerusalem. Many Christians today do not acknowledge this divine right. This unbiblical position and failure weakens their testimony, weakens the nation of Israel, weakens our nation, and in fact, places us in great jeopardy of God’s judgment.

The truth is that anyone who seeks the blessings of our Heavenly Father must make sure that this command is obeyed. This promise is not just for individuals. The same verse promises a blessing for “the families of the earth.” This is a generational and national promise as well as an individual one. There is nothing more important you can do for your children, your grandchildren, and your country than to secure the blessing for them by blessing Israel and the Jewish people.
