We believe that the Abrahamic Covenant is still in effect. Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
Gen 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
The graveyard of history is replete with the nations that have ignored this covenant and persecuted and tried to either expel them from their land, drive them into ghettos, or tried to exterminate them from their population. An interesting note: It was 1492 that Spain persecuted and expelled the Jews from their land and it was 1492 that Columbus discovered America that would give protection to the Jews on ships paid for by King and Queen Ferdinand and Isabella from guess where? That’s right Spain.
It is our opinion that Christian believers, whether Evangelicals, Fundamentalists or nominal believers, in order to maintain the blessings of God upon their lives personally and to continually see God’s protection on our nation we must not turn against these ancient people who He has made this eternal covenant with over four thousand years ago.
Even though Donald Trump tried to moderate his position of neutrality on the Jewish subject in his speech before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference today, it is Ted Cruz who has been consistent and once again today gave the clarion call for support for Israel including moving the Capitol to Jerusalem and using American force if necessary if Israel is attacked by the Palestinians or any Muslim State.
It is not enough for Trump to say that he would stand by Israel because we simply do not know what he would do, because there is no evidence that this issue is a bedrock conviction with him. But there is evidence that for Cruz it is a foundational issue, because he has been consistent on this subject privately and publiclily for many years.
How tragic that this subject did not come up in the early debates rather than the silly, personal, school yard things that Megyan Kelly and Fox News, primarily engaged in, thinking that they would be cute to turn the candidates against each other to have a school yard brawl, instead of a serious debate. It would have been good to have known where the candidates stood on the Jewish question before the Evangelicals began to vote, especially in the solid South. If this had been an issue early, it may very well be that the color of the map in the Evangelical South would have looked strikingly different. Perhaps it is not too late that on this issue alone, the hinge of history may still swing toward Cruz in this primary election.
