Isaiah 41:11-13. “Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing: and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not: I will help thee.”
Switching now to far future prophecy, God reassures Israel that there will come a time when no one will be able to stand against them because HE, the great I AM, will protect them and will hold their right hand.
We have to keep in mind that Satan is the biggest enemy Israel has, and through the centuries his rage against Israel has caused them endless grief. When Israel moves away from God, worships idols, becomes pagan in their style of living, God removes that right hand of strength and help.
But when Jesus Christ establishes His kingdom on earth, centered in Jerusalem, no one will be able to contend with Israel. No weapon will succeed against them. Those who have hated Israel will be ashamed, confounded; with all their power and armies and weapons, they shall be as nothing; they shall perish.
In these present times, when most of the world has turned against Israel, America needs to continue to stand as Israel’s friend. It is for our present and future benefit to do so. There will come a time, I’m sure, when the political powers of our nation will join all the nations in condemnation of Israel. When that happens, American’s days of being relatively free from persecution will come to an end.
