Christian Zionism

At this year’s 37th Annual A Night To Honor Israel event at the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, held by John Hagee Ministries (JHM), 12 charity and non-profit organizations from Israel and the United States were awarded with more than $1.45 million in donations. In a golden age for Jewish-Christian relations, the event emphasized commonalities such as support for the State of Israel and belief in the unbreakable Biblical covenant between God and the Jewish people.

The phenomenon of Christians loving Israel is powerfully evident in rural north-central Ohio, where blessing Abraham has brought bounty to the region and resulted in a recent visit by a prominent Israeli politician. These blessings may increase ten-fold next month if the state passes legislation that could make it the first state to recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.

A few years ago, two Jewish couples in Israel were discussing the mad rush for trinkets (flags, keychains and more) that are given out by thousands of Christian marchers to parade watchers along the route of the Jerusalem March during Sukkot. Northern Shomron (Samaria) resident Naomi Weiss said to her friends Gabi and Shmuel Tair, “They came all this way to support Israel. We should be giving them stuff!”
