The election is only weeks away and the discussions are rampant. Some see their candidate as a Savior and others think they are all evil. I was reminded again of an important issue in choosing a candidate.

Genesis 26:4, “…and by your Offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed…”

Isaac’s children became the Jewish nation. A candidate’s opinion of Israel is very important.

Why?

Numbers 24:9, “…Blessed [of God] is he who blesses you [who prays and contributes to your welfare] and cursed [of God] is he who curses you [who in word, thought, or deed would bring harm upon you].”

America has been blessed. If we turn away from Israel we will be bringing the curse of God down upon ourselves.
