How we respond to National Israel will determine blessings or the curse of God.

How we respond will determine the blessing
or the curse of God. – Rev. Mike Evans

Dear Rev. Robert,

I firmly believe that how we respond to Israel will determine the blessing or the curses on our lives and our nation. America is heading down the road to judgment. Some of our leaders seem intent on cursing Israel, not fearing the God whose prophetic Word they are violating. But I believe we can turn that judgment into blessing by our prayers and our actions.

The prophet Nehemiah, who led the campaign to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, said in chapter 8, verses 9-12: “Then Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest and teacher of the Law, and the Levites who were instructing the people said to them all, ‘This day is holy to the Lord your God. Do not mourn or weep.’ For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law. Nehemiah said, ‘Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.’ The Levites calmed all the people, saying, ‘Be still, for this is a holy day. Do not grieve.’ Then all the people went away to eat and drink, to send portions of food and to celebrate with great joy, because they now understood the words that had been made known to them.”

What an amazing and prophetic word is found in this passage of Scripture in view of what faces Israel at this moment: the possibility of Hezbollah and Hamas missiles raining down on the nation, but also Iran and its nuclear threat. Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops are embedded in Syria, poised to attack Israel if ordered to do so. Yet there is still power in God’s promises and joy in His victory!
