To know the future maybe we should know our past. The peoples of this nation appear to push the past aside when looking into the future and yet our past just might be the key to our future. The relationship between America and Israel might be deeper than politics, it might be spiritual. There are those who believe we like the Israelis or feel sorry for them due to their past, but, the Bible might give us a deeper understanding. We will review Romans within this article and discern how deep it really goes, it reads; (11:16-18)
“For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches (17) And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, (18) do not boast against the branches. But if you boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you”.
The apostle Paul is very clear in the above verses; God grafted into the Olive (Israel) Tree the Wild Olive (America) Tree, the gentiles. God then declared through the apostle; the gentiles would be a PARTAKER of the root and FATNESS of the olive tree, however should not boast because the root (Israel) was supporting the entire Olive Tree. The fact is God spiritually blinded the Hebrews, and grafted in the gentiles to bring the Hebrews to jealousy, yet, the ultimate fatness of both the branch and the root comes from the ORIGINAL OLIVE TREE Israel.
We can review history and see that whatever the root (Israel) goes through the branch (America) also goes through. I know there are the skeptics which will claim the word AMERICA is nowhere to be found within the scriptures and to this I agree, however, the words rapture and or trinity are not in the Bible either, yet, we can still establish a theology on the two subjects. I’m establishing a theology about America’s biblical ties to Israel through chapter 10 and 11 of Romans. A theology I believe will assist individuals in understand why WE MUST support Israel politically, economically, and democratically now and in the future.
In reviewing the root (Israel) and branch (America) historically I believe you will see history proves our pasts have been grafted together.
Israel formed out of another nation (Egypt)
America formed out of another nation (England)
Israel crossed water in establishment (Jordan River)
America crossed water in establishment (Atlantic Ocean)
Israel had 13 tribes
America had 13 colonies
Israel divided between N/S
America divided between N/S
Jerusalem is independent of any tribe
DC (Washington) is independent of any state
Israel’s National Documents Scripturally founded
America’s National Documents Scripturally founded
There are many more examples, this is just some nuggets, hopefully inspiring you to search out more through the study of scripture and history. I will leave you with one more nugget and that is; JER-USA- LEM has the USA right in the center of it.
In reviewing a few years of our pasts we can tie the root and branch together. The Bush presidency forced Israel to give up land located within the GAZA area of the country, a land deal that was bad for the Hebrews and bad for the Gentiles. Let’s see how Gaza and Katrina match up.
Gaza is a coastal area
New Orleans is a coastal area
Gaza is a port of call
New Orleans is port of call
Hebrews were taken out in buses
Americans were taken out in buses
Hebrews were fighting the military
Americans were fighting the police
Hebrews were relocated
Americans were relocated
Hebrews were called refugees
Americans were called refugees
Hebrew homes were bulldozed
Americans home were bulldozed
Hebrews lost their jobs
Americans lost their jobs
Lastly, I’m sure each of you remember the Hamas / Hezbollah border attacks against Israel, several weeks / months of border attacks between the Israeli’s and terrorists. Is it ironic that America is fighting a border battle between our border patrol police / military and the Mexican illegal drug cartels?
We must fully support Israel till the end. I urge each and everyone who reads this to pay attention to Israel over the next 36 months. I believe the worst is yet to come. The branch is dwindling and dieing and God is ready to remove the WILD OLIVE TREE from the ORIGINAL OLIVE TREE. We must await time to show us the truth, pray for the Hebrews, pray for Israel and pray for America and read Romans chapters 10 and 11 to view the whole plan of God.
Welcome to the Revelation!!
