This talk (and its accompanying article) is being given on 20 March, Nisan 9, 5773.
This is the same day on which the President of the USA, Barak Obama, is visiting Israel. This talk is being given from Jerusalem the capital of Israel. President Obama is also here, today, in Jerusalem. President Obama however will not be looking us up.
What the outcome of the vist of President Obama will be, remains to be seen. It is however connected with the State of Israel and US support for the State of Israel which we hope will continue. It needs to continue both for the sake of the State of Israel and for that of the United States. The USA and Israel are brother nations. They need each other and this should be made known to them. Both the State of Israel and the USA are nations of the Bible. The founding fathers of the USA as well as very many of its inhabitants are descended from Israelites. They descend from both Jews who were assimilated and from members of the Ten Lost Tribes who lost consciousness of their ancestry. Because of this the USA became a great nation and is what it is. The God-given task of the USA includes supporting the State of Israel.
We believe in God the Almighty who created Heaven and Earth. God reveals himself to us through the Bible. The message of the Bible is that the Almighty chose Israel to be HIS People. The Bible says that God is the Creator BUT the Bible message is how God reveals himself to us through Israel.
The Jews are Israelites.
The Ten Tribes are also Israelites BUT they are Israelites who lost consciousness of their ancestry. We, in Hebrew Nations, work to remind the Ten Tribes of their ancestry.
The Jews did not lose their ancestry. The Jews are the representatives of Israel before the world. They are the living ongoing continuation of Israel of the Bible and the God of Israel.
The Jews are also the means through which the Ten Tribes will be reminded of their ancestry.
In those days the house of Judah shall go unto [sometimes mistranslated as "walk with"] the house of Israel and they shall come together out of the land of the north unto the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.
Through supporting the Jewish presence and rule over the Land of Israel we re-affirm our trust in the God of Israel. This is the will of God. God wants us to support the State of Israel.
The God of Israel has begun the ingathering of Judah.
The Land of Israel is a special Land. This is the Land where Divine Providence is felt more strongly. The Eyes of God are upon this land.
12 a land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year.
The Land of Israel has special qualities of its own. All Israelites should be here but for the moment they cannot be. Those who can be here are Jewish.
We have to support what there is. The State of Israel is the beginning. It is the first step for all Israelites.
Many Jews in the Land of Israel learn the Torah. They speak the Hebrew language. Very Many of them keep the commandments. This is the living Bible. It may not be all that it should be but it is what we have got. We need it. Believers in the Bible in our days NEED the State of Israel. All Israelites need the State of Israel.
24 But I have said to you, You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey. I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples.
Support for the State of Israel is the Key to the Redemption of all Israelites! It is for the good of humanity in general!
The US today is the major supporter of the State of Israel. Most other nations of the world are either against Israel or highly critical of it, on the surface.
Despite the apparent hostility of many other countries (e.g. Ireland, Norway, etc) whose populations also include many descendants of Israelites, it is not all that simple. Things are not always entirely what they seem. Underneath the surface many of those of Israelite descent, consciously or subconsciously want the State of Israel to succeed and they want the USA to support it.
The State of Israel was created by Jews as well as by the British, the French, and the Americans.
The Northern Ten Tribes were exiled by the Assyrians and lost consciousness of their ancestry. In the end they moved in stages to the west and settled there. The southern Tribes of Israel had been known as the Kingdom of Judah. From them emerged the Jewish nation.
About 200 years later the Jews were exiled by the Babylonians but some of them returned and rebuilt the Land of Judea centered on Jerusalem and the Temple. Eventually the Romans drove the Jews out and caused them to disperse all over the world. In the Land of Israel, after the Romans came the Byzantines, then the Persians, and Arabs, and Crusaders, and again the Arabs followed by the Turks in the Ottoman Empire. Throughout the centuries Jews tried to return but were often driven away by the Gentiles or by circumstance. In the 1700s, 1800s, and early 1900s more and more Jews managed to come back to the Land. At that time it was still ruled by the Turks. The Turks on the whole were hostile and so were the neighboring Arabs. The Jews however had support from the British and others. Then in 1917, during World War 1, the British conquered the land. The Balfour Declaration laid the foundations for the British Mandate. The British helped the Jews build up the country. Later, due to anti-Jewish elements in Britain and Muslim pressure, the British began to be antibivalent towards the Jews.
Towards the end they were in some ways against the Jews. Nevertheless, despite claims to the contrary, on the whole most of the British, mostly supported the Jews, most of the time. The State of Israel became independent in 1948. At first France helped Israel a lot. The USA had also helped here and there but at first did not seem to have a consistent attitude towards Israel. After 1967 the USA became the major supporter of Israel. It still is.
Because of its support for Israel the USA in the eyes of the world is MUCH GREATER than it otherwise would be.
The State of Israel is a little country with a relatively small population.
Nevertheless in popular consciousness the State of Israel is the center of attention of all the world.
In some ways it has earned it.
The USA by supporting Israel declares to other nations that the USA is still the top man on the block and intends to remain that way. This is what the USA is. The USA is a great nation. It shows its greatness by support for Israel. This was one of the reasons the USA became great. In order to do this. The USA needs to help Israel in the same way that Israel needs help from the USA.
May the God of Israel bless the State of Israel and the USA and all Israelite Peoples and all the world.
