Why Support Israel?

Suport Israel
“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 12:3

Why were yesterday’s elections in Israel such a big deal? Because God’s word says that in the last days, Israel would play a key role.
Scripture has foretold in Ezekiel 37 that the Jews would be regathered in their land, and this prophecy was fulfilled when Israel became a nation in 1948. Ezekiel 38 then speaks of an attack against Israel by a large nation to the north of the Jewish homeland, accompanied by a number of allies invading Israel from every direction. Scripture emphasizes multiple times that this will happen in the last days. We can see that Iran’s ability to develop a nuclear weapon will endanger Israel and its primary ally the U.S. That is why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while addressing the US Congress reminded the American people of the dangers of equipping Iran.
Iran's apocalyptic leaders believe that a reincarnated ancient holy man will reappear in the wake of a devastating Holy War, thereby ensuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth. That's not just what they believe. That's what is actually guiding their policies and their actions; to destroy Israel and the United States.
Iran's former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad often spoke of an Islamic messiah, the 12th Imam, who according to their beliefs, will bring about an Islamic kingdom. But also according to their beliefs, the Judeo-Christian civilization must be destroyed first. For this 12th Imam to come, they believe, there must first be chaos.
Could this be what brings about the scenario predicted in the 38th & 39th chapters of the Old Testament book of Ezekiel? No one can say with certainty. But it certainly could be.
Up to this point, the United States has been a staunch ally of Israel's. And I believe that one of the reasons God has blessed our nation is because of our continued support for Israel. But it would appear these days that we are backing away from her and negotiating  with her enemies.   
I believe it is important that we continue to bless Israel so that God will continue to bless the USA.
