Not only am I a Christian Right Conservative I also a Christian Zionist. This means I am in the camp that stands with the Promise of God Almighty that the Land Promised to Abraham belongs to the Jews as descendants of Abraham through the descendant line of the Child of Promise – Isaac son of Abraham and Sarah.

 

Jewish Zionists (What is Zionism? –ADL, About Zionism – Zionism-Israel & Zionism As JudaismRobert Wolfe-JewishMag.com) and Christian Zionists (CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS, PAST AND PRESENT – Think-Israel, CHRISTIAN ZIONISM 101 – ICEJ, What motivates Christian Zionists? – Jerusalem Post & Christian Zionism and Islamic Eschatology - John W. Swails III, Ph.D. ORU) are not united in matters of faith BUT the two are united in that Israel is the Land of the Jews promised by God Almighty.

 

Even among Pro-Israel advocates I am probably a bit controversial in my views. I reason controversy because I believe the borders of Israel should be closer to the Biblical scenario which would enlarge the Jewish State of Israel quite a bit further than the admirers of the fake-Palestinians who side with these Jew-hating Arabs.

 

In stating briefly my position of support for Israel I was quite gratified to read yesterday that the Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely is advocating those under her charge to use the Torah (Jewish Bible) or as we Christians would call it – the Old Testament as a “reference point for the rights of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.” With that in mind allow me to share some Christian Zionist quotations of the Holy Bible:

 

Genesis

 

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac.

 

And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing. 10 Therefore she said to Abraham, “Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac.”

 

12 But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.

 

Galatians

 

22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise, 24 which things are symbolic. For these are the[a] two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar—

 

28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. 29 But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now. 30 Nevertheless what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.”[a] 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman but of the free. (Genesis 21: 1-3, 9-10, 12; Galatians 4: 22-24, 28-31 NKJV)

 

After sharing God’s Word here is the United with Israel report on Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely.

Israel’s Deputy FM: Focus on Our God-Given Biblical Right to the Land of Israel!

In a dramatic foreign policy development, Israel’s Deputy FM instructed Israeli envoys to invoke the Jews’ biblical right to the entire Land of Israel.

 

Israel’s newly appointed Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely told Israeli diplomats to use the Torah (Jewish bible) as a reference point for the rights of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.

 

In a video broadcast from Jerusalem, Hotovely addressed Israel’s foreign ministry envoys in over 100 foreign countries.

 

While the landmark speech was a bit shocking within Israel’s Foreign Ministry, there is strong support from many Israelis who believe that this approach has been long overdue.

 

“It is important to say that this land is ours, all of it is ours. We didn’t come here to apologize for this,” she said.

 

Hotovely is a strong proponent of complete Jewish sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, the biblical heartland of Israel.

 

“The international community deals with considerations of morality and justice. Facing this, we have to return to the basic truth of our right to this land,” Hotovely said.

 

She quoted the famous Jewish scholar Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki, circa 1040 CE) from his famous commentary to the biblical book of Genesis.

 

In one of Rashi’s most famous pieces, he explained that the bible begins with the creation of the world so that if foreign nations would ever accuse the Jews of stealing the Land of Israel, the Jews would have the following response.

 

‘Since the entire world belongs to God, only He can choose to whom the Land of Israel will be given. And God chose to give it to the Jewish people’.

 

Since billions of people around the world believe in the authenticity of the Hebrew bible, including Jews, Christians and Muslims, this approach may be Israel’s most effective tool to claim complete sovereignty in its ancient homeland.
