The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
“I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.
Genesis 12: 1-3
In Genesis 12: 1-3, we are given a glimpse of how the nations of the world should treat Abraham’s descendants, the Jewish people…Israel. God tells Abraham to leave his family, who lived in the City of Haran. In faith, God told him to move to a land which he had never been to…the land of Canaan – which is now present day Israel. Abraham is told by God. that he and his descendants, will be blessed by the Most High because of his obedience to God. The promise is that those who blessed Abraham’s descendants would be blessed and those who cursed his descendants would be cursed.
We, at this present time in history, see the United States government doing all that it can to divide the land of Israel and the City of Jerusalem. The US is doing this as well as supporting the Palestinians’ attempt to wipe Israel off the map, with a false peace. Do you consider this a true support for the only true ally we have in the Middle East? The US is still suffering economic hard times, joblessness, droughts, floods, hurricanes (Super Storm Sandy) in the Northeast, earthquakes, declining economic and military power and the horrific behavior of corrupt politicians bringing this country down.
What is there to say? Are we blessed or cursed, according to God’s Word? Wake up, America, we have taken our fingers and poked God in His Eye and cursed Israel – instead of blessing her. God is cursing America for our treatment of the nation of Israel.
