Christian Zionists Have Long Supported Judicial Reform in Israel. Here is why

Christian Zionists have long been critics of the Israeli Supreme court and supporters of judicial reform in Israel. Because, frankly, the Israeli Supreme Court has become quite a left-leaning, non-Zionist—not to mention, undemocratic—institution. As such, the judiciary has ended up on the daily forefront of “lawfare,” or judicial warfare, against the biblical restoration of Israel.

Recently, Israel has been thrown into severe turmoil over judicial reform by the left-wing politicians who lost the previous elections, as well as their compatriots in Israeli media. Many competing voices are now vying loudly for support, including appeals to the large number of Christians who support Israel. In this political frenzy, it is important for Christians who love Israel, to pause and be reminded of what some Christian Zionists like myself have been saying before this political frenzy started.

You shall appoint magistrates and officials for your tribes, in all the settlements that Hashem your God is giving you, and they shall govern the people with due justice.” Deuteronomy 16:5 (The Israeli Bible)

For years, I have tried to explain to Christian friends the dire need for judicial reform in Israel, and I will do so now again. For most who love Israel from afar, judicial reform seemed like a complex, insider baseball-topic. Now, the issue has exploded all over the news and the streets. For Christian Zionists in Israel on the front lines—contending for the right of Israel to exist, for the diaspora to return, for the Holy Land to be undivided, and for the right of Jews to live their biblical calling in their land, freely as Jews—for us, the judiciary has been an issue for a long time.

For example, in early 2017, the Christian prayer network I am a member of publicized the following prayer topic:

“Pray for strength and unity among those who fear God in Israel to enact new laws that can limit the undemocratic influence of the Supreme Court.”

It was not the first time the prayer topic had come up throughout the years.

Christian Zionists I know personally have often expressed discomfort with the apparent humanistic and masonic style of the Supreme Court Building itself, and note that many of the anti-Zionist decisions from the court increased after 1992 when the court moved into the new building.

During Netanyahu’s previous years as PM, I joined in with the laments of politicians like Naftali Bennet and Ayelet Shaked, who criticized Netanyahu for letting important opportunities for judicial reform pass him by.


  1. author1, I just read your article here on judicial reform Christian Zionist regarding judicial reform in Israel and for whatever it’s worth, I stand right beside you in full agreement. it most certainly appears that heavily left-leaning Israeli supreme Court is in a state of unbelief. It is most obvious that the Israeli supreme Court needs to go back to the basics as well as Israel in general needing to go back to the basics of law, what is that law? It is the laws, precepts that father God commanded and ordained through Moses. All of these laws and precepts were simple easy to understand. The problem is that throughout time man has perverted law and Justice to suit his own selfish desires. Favoring one group of people over another,unjustly,unfairly. With regard to the laws of God biblical laws, does the rain not fall on the just and the unjust at the same time? It is the forsaking in unbelief in God’s laws that have caused all of this, for example let’s take Matthew 24 Jesus is speaking here versus 12 through 15 because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. and this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to All Nations, and then the end will come. If prime minister Benjamin netanyahu does somehow manage to get judicial reform passed it could cause what Ezekiel spoke of in Ezekiel 37 concerning the two sticks, the nation of Israel would become divided, a northern kingdom and Southern Kingdom perhaps? because of one side not agreeing with judicial reform. Could this become the fulfillment of that Bible prophecy right before our very eyes? Only time will answer that question, evenso, in the end the Lord has said he will bring them back together. This much we most definitely know and that is at the end of the great 7-year tribulation. When we return with Jesus, he sets foot on the Mount of Olives, law will be carried out rightly and justly by our Lord and King of Kings Jesus Christ himself and there will be no argument!!! Therefore according to Bible prophecy between now and when we come back to earth with Jesus, lawlessness will continue to be on the increase especially during the Great seven-year tribulation period. As for us the church, the body of Christ, we must continue to honor the Lord Jesus Christ and obey what he says and pray for those that are not doing so, that their eyes and ears might be opened and follow Jesus as we are. And I am talking about their spiritual eyes and spiritual ears that need to be opened.
