It's been a busy few days for headlines surrounding Israel—from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exposing Iran's lies to the U.S. withdrawal of the Iran nuclear deal to the impending 70th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation on May 14, 1948.
The American Pastors Network (APN) has been following all this news on its popular radio program, "Stand in the Gap Today," heard on 425 stations around the country.
Nearly once a week, "Stand in the Gap Today" host and APN President Sam Rohrer focuses on issues surrounding Israel by welcoming expert guests on the topic, as well as addressing news coming out of the Middle East from a biblical and constitutional perspective.
"Last week, Benjamin Netanyahu called a news-shattering news conference about the lies of Iran regarding its nuclear program and figuratively shook the ground underneath the Iran nuclear deal that was deceptively negotiated between the leaders of Iran and former President Barack Obama," Rohrer said. "But before this expose, Israel literally shook the ground in Syria as it inflicted a wound not only against Syrian forces, but as an attack against Iran and its ambitions to destroy Israel and the United States. Although they may think it's thousands of miles and several time zones away, Christians are directly impacted by news like this, and must be up to speed on all that is happening daily in the Middle East and how it relates back to God's Word.
"Now more than ever, the faithful must be tuned in to God's plans for this world, our country and the nation of Israel, which on Monday, will look back on the 70 years since becoming a nation," he added. "Where has Israel been, where is it headed and what is God's plan for this nation? These are questions important to American Christians everywhere."
"Stand in the Gap Today" will address Israel and Iran again today on the program. The show can be heard live online from noon to 1 p.m. EST at American Pastors Network.com at the orange "Listen Live" button on the right-hand side of the webpage, or find a station here.
