If this is so, then it shows the great depth of lies and apostasy into which many Americans have sunk. For this is Israel:
Supporters of Muslim jihadists (when it suits them, just as in Washington City and elsewhere in the West):
Fellow-workers with the NSA in spying on innocent Americans:
Bestowers of marriage and other rights on homosexuals, etc. (Tel Aviv is ‘the gay capital of the Middle East’ - Out magazine):
Slayers of the unborn:
Persecutors of Christians:
As this little list should make clear, it is not a country’s relationship to the earthly people of Israel that brings it God’s favor; that is an error growing out of the dispensationalist heresy that arose in the 19th century from men like Darby and Scofield.
Israel’s part in þe (þ = th) salvation of mankind was fulfiled in the birth of the Mother of God and in the incarnation, birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ. The Jewish people are now no different than the Korean or French or Brazilian peoples in the eyes of God. Thus, as we have said, it is not a country’s friendship with the nation of Israel that is important now, but its ties to Christ’s One True Body, the Orthodox Church, the New Israel.
If a people now wishes to be blessed of God, they must accept the Gospel and be united to Christ through Baptism and filled with the Holy Ghost through Chrismation. Those who reject the Gospel will be cursed. The Jewish people, sadly, having largely rejected the Cornerstone, are laboring under a curse. The fruits are evident, as related above. Many of those same fruits are ripening in the [u]nited States. It is perhaps, then, not surprising that so many in the States would desire to bind themselves all the more strongly unto and give all manner of aid to the spiritually downfallen people of Israel, being bereft of the discernment given by the Holy Spirit. But let the Southern evangelical and any others who would listen be forewarned: Down that way lies not blessing but the greatest curse - the worldwide rule of Antichrist from the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem.
