Standing with Israel - for Your sake

 

What others have said

“THERE seems to be now really interest excited among some of the ministers for the Jews. I regard this as a direct and memorable answer to prayer. The cause of Israel, which we plead, is one that has interested the saints of God in every age; but we wish you specially to remark that it is a cause which God has brought into view, whenever there was any thing great to be done in his kingdom below. Samuel Rutherford speaks of the Jewish cause with peculiar interest and fervour. The holy Archbishop Leighton also felt as did Rutherford. O brethren, pray for [the Jews]! Such a people must yet revive. And the promise is sure they shall turn again to the Lord and to the land. When tidings come suddenly that Judah and Benjamin are flowing to the goodness of the Lord, and that also the long lost ten are coming with weeping to Zion! [Then] there will then be discoveries of God's ways and of God's truth that shall make the light of present times seem dim.”

Rev. Andrew A. Bonar (1810 - 1892)

Scottish church minister and companion of

Robert Murray McCheyne in a mission to the Jews

first Bishop of Liverpool

"IN regard to the matter of fact, that the favour which is yet to be shown to Israel, is not only closely connected with the future prosperity of the Church and the triumph of the Christian faith in the world, but is to be the immediate cause or occasion of it, the apostle must be understood, [in Rom 9-11], not as prophesying himself, but rather as recognising and interpreting the predictions of former prophets. Yea, brethren, we may indeed anticipate from the restoration of Israel to their old place in the Divine favour."

 

Rev. Robert S. Candlish (1806 -1873) 

one of Scotland's finest preachers

"WE have to remember that the spiritual climate that affects the nation of Israel and the Jews is the same spiritual climate that touches the church in like manner. You see, if Replacement Theology, which does away with [the Bible's teaching regarding God's purposes for and attitudes to the Jewish people and the land (Jer. 31:33-37 et al.] were true, it would be very convenient; but it isn't. It's the most absurd concoction that you could ever think of."

Derek Prince (1915 - 2003)

Extract from 'A Call to Britain' - June 2003

"WE have in our generation witnessed the Jewish People returning to the Land of Promise. The prophecies, about their returning from the isles and the distant places of the earth (Isaiah 11:10-11.41:8ff. Jeremiah 31:8.), did not and could not refer to Israel's return from Babylon. It has taken place, in our generation, so that we have a right to say that this is a fulfilment of prophecy. We have seen Israel (the fig tree), which ceased to be a nation for nineteen hundred years, become a nation and a state once more in the Promised Land. Clearly God is at work. What he is about to do, can only keep us on our tiptoes in expectation."

 

Rev. David Torrance

(senior C of S minister)
