What do you get when you cross a brilliant mind, a bold voice and faithful public service with America’s most important position in the United Nations? You get American Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley…and she gets roaring applause at AIPAC!
Israel has no bigger friend and ally in the American government than Nikki Haley. She has, at times single-handedly, taken on the UN General Assembly and Security Council and has held her own. From a political perspective, she gets an A+ when it comes to standing with Israel.
But, let’s consider her stand from a Biblical perspective. Genesis 12:3 tells us clearly that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. That truth carries personal connotations for each of us. Indeed, we must each make a decision regarding how we respond to Israel. However, Joel 3:1-2 issues a warning to the nations of the earth:
“For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather all the nations
And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat.
Then I will enter into judgment with them there
On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
And they have divided up My land.”
The prophet tells us that ALL nations will be gathered in judgment in the valley of Jehoshaphat to answer for how they treated Israel! Thus, it is eternally critical that the United States does not scatter the Jewish people or divide up the land of Israel! That will not happen on Nikki Haley’s watch if she has anything to do with it!
The current administration is the first US administration in decades to stand firmly and Biblically with our friend and ally, Israel…and Nikki Haley has taken on the gigantic task of setting the US on the right side of the Biblical equation in the United Nations! Praise God for her…and please PRAY for her!
As Haley spoke to the excited crowd at AIPAC, she stated unequivocally: “Jerusalem was, is, and will always be the capital of Israel!” Hear what else she had to say in her 21-minute speech:
