|The Balfour Centenary celebrations continued this week with a wonderful event at the Royal Albert Hall. As reminded in our latest Torch magazine, Britain has a legacy that it can be proud of. When we reflect on the events leading to the Balfour Declaration, we see how God used Britain in an almighty way. Not only did Britain’s Cabinet at the time comprise of Bible-believing Christian Zionists, but huge historical events were taking place in the Middle East that made it possible for Britain to give its support to a Jewish homeland.
One hundreds years later, we recognise that Britain hasn’t always been a reliable ally. But are the days of Christian Zionism over? Certainly not! We believe that Christians still have an important role to play in taking a stand for Israel. Furthermore, we are witnessing here at CUFI a modern Zionist movement that we trust will ultimately lead to Britain being blessed as a nation that unapologetically and uncompromisingly stands with Israel. May that be our prayer today..
