Good news! There are actually some Christians in the world who are speaking out on behalf of Israel! The Jerusalem Summit convened, where over a thousand Christian leaders met together for the sole reason to support Israel, and made the following declarations:
We have convened this conference to reaffirm the Christian position that the Holy Land and its eternal capital, Jerusalem are the inheritance of the Jewish people forever.
We request that the implementation of the resolutions below be placed on the Christian agenda around the world.
Toward this end, the Jerusalem Summit proclaims:
- We commit to petitioning our respective governments to move their embassies to Jerusalem.
- We commit to petitioning our respective governments to stop supporting biased UN resolutions that are anti-Israel.
- We commit to petitioning our respective governments to cease funding the Palestinian Authority or to place effective restrictions on such funding to prevent its use for terror.

I’m not a prophet, nor do I claim to have prophetic insight. I don’t study eschatology. I don’t focus on apocalyptic literature. It’s been years since I have read the Revelation of John. However, over the last few months, especially the last few weeks, there have been more world events to trigger biblical references than all the events combined that I can remember in my lifetime. Judgement is being meted out and the earth is groaning for her Maker’s return.
In the latest of catastrophic global events is Baghdad’s massive trampling of nearly a thousand Iraqis during a pilgrimage to an Islamic shrine. As the one million Shiites were walking across a bridge, someone in the crowd started screaming that there was a suicide bomber among them. Immediately, panic gripped the masses and a stampede broke out which ultimately ending in the trampling of the slower and weaker Iraqis. Many people even dove from the bridges to their death. It is thought that this was the strategy of a Sunni terrorist, a rival Muslim sect of which Saddam Hussein belongs.
Judgment has begun to come upon those who would seek to destroy the children of Hashem.
