|To Abraham God said "I will make you a great nation. And I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse" (Gen. 12:2-3). |
History has proven this part of the Abrahamic covenant to be true. In our own recent history we can see this prophecy coming to pass. Spain was curses for its mistreatment of the Jews. So was Russia and Germany during World War II. If our nation turns against the Jewish people we will be cursed. And there are signs that this may be now happening. Some have said that no President before Barack Hussein Obama has so turned away from Israel as he has! This could be part of the reason that we are seeing America slipping and sliding downhill.
Deuteronomy 14:2 is a very important passage: "For you are a holy people unto the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a peculiar people unto Himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth." And, Psalm 122:6 says: "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you."

If the nations do not turn to the Lord there will be terrible consequences. Jeremiah says: "The Lord's indignation will be against all the nations, and His wrath against their armies" (34:2). And, "The nations will be utterly ruined" (Isa. 60:12). America must continue to support Israel and never turn back from that position.
