"Many of My people love Israel
and they pray for her often—
for her safety, peace, and prosperity.
They are proud to 'stand for Israel':
they preach it in their gatherings,
participate in conferences about it,
and assemble to protest and rally for it.
They support Israel's politics;
they pray for Israel's army,
for her military objectives,
and for her to be victorious.
They are attentive not only to the past
and present sufferings of Israel,
but also to potential sufferings that Jews
could experience under speculative scenarios.
But they cannot see the great sufferings
of their Christian brothers and sisters
in neighboring Gaza and the West Bank.
My Palestinian bride suffers,
but they do not mourn with her,
comfort her, encourage her or support her.
They do not 'stand with' her.
My bride in Palestine is an inconvenience
to the great devotion of many to Israel;
hearing of her suffering only interrupts
their unceasing prayers for Israel.
Many of My people in their hearts have sold
their suffering Palestinian brothers and sisters,
trading them for the hope of being rewarded
for unconditionally 'standing with Israel.'
Although many in the church abroad
have forsaken My Palestinian bride,
yet I have not abandoned her,
and I have raised up a remnant of My people
to pray for her and support her.
Though she has not been loved
by many of her family—My people—
she shall be honored and called 'My beloved'."
