Following last week’s angry and very inappropriate tirade from Mike Evans, aimed at new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, big name evangelicals have boldly and adamantly expressed their support of Israel’s new government and vow to pray for Israel, regardless of who is Prime Minister.
Highly-respected evangelical leaders such as Mike Huckabee, Rev Johnnie Moore, Dr. Jürgen Bühler, Kay Arthur and Tony Perkins joined the likes of Nikki Haley and Michele Bachmann to verbally and openly express evangelical support.
Bible-believers understand that Scripture commands us to bless Israel (Genesis 12:3), pray for Israel (Psalm 122) and be watchmen on the wall (Isaiah 62)…regardless of who resides in the Prime Minister’s residence.
Read best wishes from evangelical leaders here:
Let’s join them in prayer and support of Israel’s government, regardless of our opinion regarding the “change coalition.” May God grant wisdom and grace to the new government, and may they make wise decisions concerning Israel’s safety.
Update: Newly-elected Foreign Minister, Yair Lapid, a moderate left-winger in the new Israeli government took a bold step on day one by declaring that Israel and the new administration deeply value pro-Israel Christians. A step in the right direction!
