I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. -Genesis 12:3
I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. -Romans 11:1
Holy Scripture says the Jews are God’s chosen people (Deuteronomy 7:6; Romans 11:1). It says to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6). My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a Jew (Matthew 1-2; Luke 1-2). Christians are to love all people, but we should especially love and support Israel.
This does not mean everything Israel does is right. Like any other group, there are good Jews and bad Jews. But God has placed His hand on them. God said He would bless those who bless them, and curse those who curse them (Genesis 12:3).
One of the reasons God has blessed America is because we have been a friend to Israel. Thank God that the USA continues to support Israel.
One way we can be supportive of Israel is to buy their products. Purchasing products made in Israel helps support their economy and their country.
The question then comes, But how can I find products made in Israel?
Simple. Just go to:
Israeli Hardware, Tools
Maybe you need a Mezuzah (Scripture to put on your doorpost), or a Shofar (ram’s horn, trumpet; used to call the Israelites to worship or to battle).
Did you know Lowes, J. C. Penney, Walmart, K-Mart, and Macy’s sell Israeli products?
Obviously, I would not support or buy every product made in Israel. So use your good judgment. But start supporting Israel not just in words, but in tangible ways.
