Israel is losing the war of world opinion - even among Christians

Listen to Today's Program Play

The war that Israel keeps losing is the war of world opinion, the war for individual hearts and minds, and a war that is also being lost among normally staunch supporters of Israel - the evangelical Christian community. There is a movement among the Christian community that is eroding support for Israel led by men like Brian McLaren, author of the book, "A New Kind of Christian", Stephen Sizer, a pastor who has gained popularity by condemning Christian Zionism, and Former President Jimmy Carter, who accuses Israel of committing a holocaust against the Palestinians. 

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The war that the Jewish state of Israel keeps losing even among Christians, the war for world opinion, the loss of this war will set the stage for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the end times.

For the last 60+ years, the Jewish state of Israel has been at war - not necessarily on the battlefield, but the war for the hearts and minds of the world as mankind looks at Israel and its efforts to sustain life in a very tough neighborhood. Israeli leaders have said that they do not consult world opinion before making moves to protect the people of the Jewish state. Now, however, there is a move among Israeli leaders to rethink their lack of public relations especially to their most avid supporters, the Christian community. 

In the last several years, there have appeared Christian leaders who are very much opposed to Christian support for Israel and even the Jewish people - men like Brian McLaren, Stephen Sizer, and and even former President Jimmy Carter. These men and others like them do not see God's plan for the Jewish people in the future as found in Bible prophecy. That would mean that God must default on His promises to the Jewish people as found in the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12 and 15) to give the Jewish people a nation and a land, a land in fact 10 times what they have today. They also reject the Davidic Covenant (II Samuel 7) and the promise of a temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem where Jesus Christ will sit on a throne as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

With or without Christian support for Israel, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
