The Republican Platform 2012 position on Israel can be confusing. At face value, the impression is that they will be an unequivocal ally to our long time democratic neighbor in the middle east.
Au contrere! Looking carefully at the Republican platform; page 49:
We support Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state with secure, defensible borders; and we envision two democratic states—Israel with Jerusalem as its capital and Palestine—living in peace and security. For that to happen, the Palestinian people must support leaders who reject terror, embrace the institutions and ethos of democracy, and respect the rule of law. We call on Arab governments throughout the region to help advance that goal. (italics mine)
How can Israel be respected to exist as a Jewish state and be forced to consider a two-state solution?
Palestine is not a state. They do not have their own national history, language or constitution. They are occupiers on land the Jews have graciously allowed them to inhabit. A land God has promised to the Jews and by God’s decree, belongs to His people.
While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
– 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (ESV)
Consider carefully for whom you cast your vote. We are in a hard situation. Respected bible teachers believe America is getting the leaders we deserve because we are a nation who has turned its back on God. A reprieve will only come when the church repents from its foolishness and gets back to the simple truth of God’s word. Revival starts with repentance, not tent meetings or outreach concerts.
The church is the body of Christ for the body of Christ. We need to be about our father’s business of making disciples. He will draw all men unto Himself. If He be lifted up.
