It's been pointed out to me that the term "Zionist" has multiple connotations.
When I said that my pastor had asked us to be Christian Zionists, I described what that meant--that the Jewish people are God's chosen people and that has not changed. I believe that we should bless Israel (Numbers 24: 5-9 ) and be supportive of their efforts to be independent, etc. But, I do not believe we should blindly support everyone who lives in Israel, or every policy of Israel, any more than I believe that we should blindly follow anyone. God calls us to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves. So, keep your eyes open and support those you feel are led by God and hold to His Word.
(Prayer is the ONLY means we have to bring the power of heaven to earth. Prayer is the best support and the best defense we have.)
