Israel is extremely significant to the World, and particularly
end-time Biblical Prophecy.
Christians are told to "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem".
Jews are awaiting the 'Messiah'.
God promised Abraham in Genesis .... "whoever BLESSES you,
I will Bless, whoever CURSES you, I will Curse"
History is evidence of this solemn pronouncement !
In the TORAH (Old Testament) we read in Isaiah 60:2 - 3
"For behold, darkness
shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the
Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem] and His glory shall be seen
on you and nations shall come to your light, and Kings to the brightness
of your rising"
