As tensions mount between Israel, Iran, Russia, Syria, and the Palestinians, Hezbollah’s leader threatens, “The day of the great war is coming.”
Today, your support for Israel is vital. Please see below – Mat.
Israel today faces unprecedented and mounting attacks. Its fanatical enemies work day and night to destroy the Jewish state … to wipe the "Zionist entity" off the map.
Because the threat is grave and you are a true friend of Israel, I am asking you to do two things:
First, show your love for Israel by joining me and many others in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem. Prayer is a powerful way to bless Israel. Click here to declare that you will "Pray for Israel during this time of rising Middle East tensions."
Second, please consider a special gift to Christians in Defense of Israel to help us fight for Israel. Click here to give your best possible gift today.
+ + Here are reasons why your immediate support for Israel is critically needed.
This week, Russia delivered four S-300 air defense systems to Syria, despite opposition to the move from the US and Israel. Just today, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Russia's action a "very serious escalation."
The delivery follows the Russia-Israel conflict over who is responsible for the downing of a Russian plane that killed all 15 onboard.
Meanwhile, Iran pours billions into its military and showers scorn on Israel, blasting it as a "malignant cancerous tumor … that has to be removed." Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah, has stockpiled more than 100,000 missiles in Lebanon, with some 70,000 in Syria … all aimed at Israel.
And Hezbollah’s leader threatens, "The day of the great war is coming."
And the European Union is doing everything possible to salvage the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran—a pact that "paves Iran’s path to the bomb," as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares in disgust.
+ + Israel matters!
Israel is at the heart of God’s prophetic purpose and Jerusalem is the place where Jesus will return and reign. That’s why Satan and his horde do everything possible to frustrate and fight the coming day when all Israel shall be saved and Satan’s doom is sealed.
Israel’s central place in God’s plan is the only good explanation for why this small nation of nearly nine million people commands world attention. And why the Jewish people have been horribly persecuted for centuries . . . even targeted for extinction.
Your generosity is especially needed now to meet the rising threat. By giving, you help us stand for Israel on Capitol Hill, rally Christians nationwide to support Israel, and you raise up champions for the Jewish state through our Covenant Journey tours to Israel for Christian college students.
And when you pray for Israel, you join with believers, past and present, who have answered the call by interceding for God to bless and protect His people.
If you haven’t already done so, will you join me in praying for the peace of Jerusalem – then -- make your most generous gift to help us fight for the Jewish state?
Thank you for your love for the state of Israel and the Jewish people.
May God bless you richly as you bless Israel!
