Zionism is for Everybody

by John Stembridge stmbgmug.jpg (13850 bytes)

"Hear the Word of the LORD, O ye nations...."(Jeremiah 31:10).

Contrary to popular concept, one does not have to be Jewish to be a Zionist. A Zionist is anyone who believes that God gave the land of Israel to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants forever. "Forever" includes today!

A Zionist is not limited to only the Jewish people. There are Arab and Gentile Zionists worldwide. I have met some of them in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and the islands of the world while lobbying for the release of the three million Jews from the former Soviet Union.

In the United States alone there are over 40 million Americans who are represented by the National Unity Coalition for Israel. This is the largest Coalition of Pro-Israel Jewish and Christian Organizations in the USA. Every October six to seven thousand Christian and non-Jewish Zionists from around the world gather in Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot [Feast of Tabernacles] with the Israelis. They march in the National Sukkot Parade with banners of love and support with the Israelis.

Aliyah is a term that is used to describe the regathering of all the Jewish people to Israel from all nations. Hosea, one of the Jewish writers, prophesied that for every Jew who makes Aliyah ten Gentiles will want to go back with them. There is an estimated nine million Jews in the Americas, another two million in Russia, and two million more in the rest of the nations. Can you imagine how the Middle East will be changed when these thirteen million Jews plus one hundred and thirty million Gentiles all become Zionists? Sounds wild and way out to you? Stay with us through the rest of this article.

Most of the Jews, especially in the West, were born in freedom with educational and economic opportunity. When these return with respect for the dignity and value of every human being not only will the Middle East be forever changed but literally the whole world.

Ignorance: Zionism’s Problem / Education: Zionism’s Solution

It would appear to me that Zionism’s new mission is to change the world’s concept of Zionism from being for Jews only, to Zionism is for all people. The problem with Zionism today is the ignorance of secular Jews and Gentiles of the nearly 1,000 Scriptures where God is calling the Jewish people from the Americas and the four corners of the earth to Zion (Israel), such as the following:

"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

"And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

"And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

"O House of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD" (Isaiah 2:2-5).

This "Final Exodus" will literally usher in the Messianic Age of universal Justice, Health, Peace and Prosperity for every person. Without this basic knowledge, it is impossible for secular leaders whether political, industrial, banking, labor, management, media, religious, etc. to understand all the intricacies involved in healing both Abraham’s and Adam’s families in the earth today.

From now forward, world peace and economic stability is dependent upon Israel’s Peace and Regathering. This can happen when we educate the world as to why it is good and beneficial for every person to become a Zionist. Only then can Israel’s neighbors welcome her home as brothers, and not as enemies that they wish to drive into the sea.

Therefore, it behooves every leader in government, industry, media, religion, culture locally and world wide to become involved daily in establishing Justice with Peace throughout the Middle East and the world. Failure in this mission will bring nothing less than a Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Holocaust as never experienced in human history.

Jubilee Peace Tour

This is the reason Eugene Lebovitz, Max Wein and I are coordinating an interfaith JUBILEE PEACE MISSION to Europe and the Holy Land November 11-29, 1998. As our tour agent, David Dinour, president of Aviatrade, wrote, "This is not another regular tour . . . this is a mission of people with a vision...."

In every generation there are visionaries who see down the corridor of time to the promised age when all people are free from the evils of genocide, disease, starvation, ignorance, poverty, etc. These visionaries like Livingston and Mother Theresa made a difference in the lives of other people. "Where there is no vision, the people perish" (Proverbs 29:18). You can join in making the vision come to pass.
