Over time there have been many questions into why the United States of America even supports Israel and its political interests in the first place. Many Americans today cast Israel aside without thinking twice about the worlds first true God-given nation. Just recently, a man who was speaking publicly in Washington DC mentioned, "God created Israel because he loved man, man created America because they [man] loved God." There is a reason that this was stated, and it's because of where the history lies.
Call it organic history. It's a rich history. It's a national history so deep, that it's in the Bible. It's a nation however that's been actively slandered by many who are very unaware of the past--both ancient and recent. This is the resulting thought process of secularized history. Is it unreasonable to believe Christianity being in rapid decline for the last 60 years parallel the lack of support for Israel? Yes, it sure does. And there really is an honest answer behind this whole Israeli-American international relationship. As the Bible mentions, it was political boundaries that were established here--before any other nation on earth.
First, look at the original Twelve Tribes of Israel. Now, look at the current map of Israel today.
Over time, Persia would end up establishing its massive Dynasty and the later, Alexander the Great of Macedonia (Greece), would take a bite out of Persia's strategy in overall dominance and influence. Wars have always been fought since the Fall of Man (read Genesis). When wars occur, boundaries change. Let's look at the history here as evidenced by maps over time:
First, look at Ancient Persia (Iran). Now, look at the current map of Iran (Persia).
As you can see with traditional historical Christian presuppositions in place, there are reasons why Christian-American's have always supported Israelis' territorial and cultural integrity. It is because foundationally, there is an original boundary line for the first nation. The maps above are just a visual representation into why there is territorial and cultural disputes between modern-day Israel and the rest of the Middle East. Regardless of any new alliances between the Jewish and Muslim nations, Israel is lost in a sea of outright polarized middle-eastern diplomacy. And according to Scripture (think Revelation and Isaiah) it's not getting any better.
The Jewish nation of Israel is the only one on earth who's blessed land was given to man directly by God Himself. Likewise, by way of Providence, North America was destined to bless and hold those Christian faithful in safety. The land was transformed, and over time the political landscape shifted into a Christian-American nation. Therefore this original Christian-American nation is the only one on earth who's blessed land was given to man through Divine Providence and the love of God Himself.
Throughout my scholarly studies, I've learned that God blesses those individuals who sacrifice their own gratifications and wants for the greater good of mankind. The Christ-centered missionaries who wandered the wildernesses of North America were prominent in sewing the fabric of North American history. They are long forgotten about, but live on throughout literature. The American Founding Fathers were no different.
It is quite evident through their own achievements and undertakings in building America, that the distinct relationship between Israel and the United States of America plays into something unique. It is a bond so special that it lies in the heart of tradition. That is, a sacred bond bound to humanity both spiritually by God and by the laws of man. America and Israel will always, physically and in spirit, be united on earth.
