“The land which you cross over to possess is 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.”
Deuteronomy 11:11-12

As World War II still raged, thoughtful men and women were thinking about the radically realigned postwar world soon to come. There was special focus on the world’s Jews and a possible homeland for them.

In April of 1943, a relatively obscure US Senator from Missouri drew a direct link between that problem and the United States. “Today — not tomorrow — we must do all that is humanly possible to provide a haven and place of safety for all those who can be grasped from the hands of the Nazi butchers.” He added, “This is not a Jewish problem. It is an American problem — and we must and we will face it squarely and honorably.”

Two years later, God sovereignly removed President Roosevelt and that little known Senator — Harry S. Truman — would take over as President of the United States.

His presidency was marked by major events and major decisions. Those included the end of World War II, history’s only use of atomic weapons in war, the formation of the United Nations, and the beginning of the Cold War.

But from a biblical perspective, the biggest had to do with his commitment “to provide a haven and place of safety” for the Jewish people.

Isaiah 66:8 speaks of a nation being born in a day. In retrospect, we can see that prophecy was fulfilled as a direct reference to the birth of modern Israel on May 14, 1948. Life Magazine described it. “In the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion ended nearly 2,000 years of Jewish longing for a homeland with a great blow of his fist upon the speakers’ table. ‘The name of our state shall be Israel,’ he intoned, and a new nation was born.”

Just eleven minutes after the nation’s rebirth, President Harry Truman became the first world leader to officially recognize it. Truman later said, “I had faith in Israel even before it was established. I knew it was based on the love of freedom, which has been the guiding star of the Jewish people since the days of Moses.”

This began an extraordinary relationship between

the United States and Israel. Not coincidentally, the US then entered an era of prosperity unprecedented in world history. When God first told Abraham about the land, He also said in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Turning Away

But today, Republicans and Democrats are openly questioning the special relationship between Israel and the United States. Some question US aid to Israel, not understanding that Israel is a strategic outpost of democracy in the Middle East. Help for Israel is help for us.

For instance, in 1981, the Israeli Air Force destroyed Iraqi’s nuclear reactor. Just ten years later In 1991, US forces would face Iraq on the battlefield. Because of Israel’s intervention ten years before, the US did not face a nuclear Iraq.

Now 30 years later, under the radical presidency of Joe Biden and his godless cronies, our country has turned from God and our once great nation sees little need for the Jewish State when in reality,

America needs Israel, more than Israel needs America!

Harry Truman, Bible-believing president, enabled ‘Israel’s modern Exodus’ 76 years ago!

The president believed “I am Cyrus. I am Cyrus.”

Whereas Moses played the key role in the first exodus and King Cyr

us in the second, the third was coordinated under the 33rd President of the United States, Harry S. Truman, who took office on April 12, 1945.

That day was a turning point for both Truman and the Jewish nation, as it began a process that freed Jews from nearly 2,000 years of exile and slavery in Nazi Germany, also fulfilling Amos’ prophecy of Jewish permanent settlement in the land of Israel.
Associated with this promise of God is one of the most interesting verses in the Bible (Jer. 32:41), which is, in fact, the only passage in the Bible when God says He is doing something “with all his heart:”
“I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul.”
