Christian leaders, including pastors and members of parliament from across the world - all members of the Christian Allies Caucus group, addressed the Knesset today to express their support for Israel. Included in the group were Palestinian and Egyptian Christians, who also expressed their love for Israel as God's chosen people. In his address to the Knesset, an African MP stated that he was planning to run for parliament, and if he won, the Kenyan embassy in Tel-Aviv would be moved to Jerusalem the next day. Another man Amir Boutros, fought against Israel in the Six Day War, also addressed the Knesset. After he was saved he had a vision in which he was told by God to love Israel, and told MKs that "the God of Israel is defending Israel". 

Quote: "Speaking to Ynetnews, Reinstein said that modern events were shaping up to fit well with Torah prophecies. "If you can read the newspaper, than you can read the Torah, because things are coming into place like people have predicted many years before us."

It must be hard for unconverted Jews to understand why Christians, especially ones that fought against them, should love Israel. I remember watching one man that was interviewed on Revelation TV, a former Palestinian terrorist who hated Israel with a vengeance, but is now witnessing for Christ and loves the nation he once sought to destroy. Arab Christian support for Israel shows us that this whole issue has nothing to do with land, or even Jerusalem. It is purely a spiritual problem, and one that can only be solved by a spiritual change in our hearts, through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 19:24-25 
In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.
