To all who claim they support Christians who are coming under persecution throughout the world: you cannot claim to support Christians while calming to hate the Jews. Nor can you claim to love America if you hate Israel. Spiritually, Israel and America are as Jews and Christians: they are one family! Ted Cruz was booed off the stages for being bold enough to deliver this message to a gathering claiming to support Christians being persecuted in the Middle East. Ted Cruz was right, and the people at that gathering were wrong — period!
Romans 11: 11-31 tells us that Gentiles (Christians) are ‘grafted in’ to the Body of Christ (all believers — Jew and Gentile — who have ever been and will be redeemed). But Christ also said it, and He said it just as clearly:
John 10:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will hear My voice; and they will become one flock with one shepherd.
Here, Jesus was telling the Jews they were going to have to accept Gentiles (Christians) into the Lord’s Family. They responded much the same way as the supposed Christians or Christian supporters did to Cruz: they rejected Christ’s Words. But God’s Family does not discriminate between Jew and gentile: God’s family includes all who love and fear Him, and who seek to keep the Lord’s commands.
Finally, in the history of this world, there have only been two nations which has been dedicated to the God of the Bible: Israel and the United States. So, if you claim to support one but hate the other, then you lie in your own heart. In spite of any differences we may have, Israel and the United States are one: we are of the same family — the Body of Christ, Jeshua, the Messiah.
Ted Cruz was correct to deliver his message — the Lord’s message. He was equally correct to walk out on that nest of vipers. Stand firm in the Lord’s Word, my brethren. No matter what this world may throw at you, seek his strength and His righteousness and, once you have found it, hold to it with all your might — no matter what the cost. Your reward will be eternity with Him, sharing in His glory which He has promised to freely share with all who make Him the Lord of their lives.
