BIN: The phenomenon of Christians loving Israel is powerfully evident in rural north-central Ohio, where blessing Abraham has brought bounty to the region and resulted in a recent visit by a prominent Israeli politician. These blessings may increase ten-fold next month if the state passes legislation that could make it the first state to recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.
“There is something about Ohio, but we here feel a close brotherhood to Israel,” Benjamin Mutti, one of the organizers of the Richland Community Prayer Network (RCPN), told Breaking Israel News. “Maybe it is our closeness to nature that allows us to see God’s presence clearly.”
RCPN believes strongly in blessing Israel and has seen these blessings returned. In January 2017, RCPN, led by Mutti and Reverend El Akuchie, sent a letter of solidarity to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in January 2017. Signed by 103 north-central Ohio clergy from many denominations, the letter apologized for the lack of support of former President Barack Obama; in particular, his ordering UN ambassador, Samantha Power to abstain instead of veto Security Council Resolution 2334. The resolution – which passed unanimously – declared Israel’s presence in “east Jerusalem,” Judea, and Samaria to be illegal.
Upon sending the letter, the region began to witness the results of blessing Israel. The Rover Pipeline, a 713-mile natural $4 billion gas pipeline, that had been mired in lawsuits was approved ten days after the letter was sent. The project brought an influx of money and jobs to a region that had been economically stagnant and was ranked the fifth worst in the country.
Mutti also attributed significant increases in the spring turkey harvest and the whitetail deer harvest to this letter. The dairy industry, essential to the region, registered the largest cattle herd in thirty years.
Opinion: Genesis 12:3 has been trampled by Christian denominations since the 2nd century AD as early Church fathers decided that God must have meant something else regarding Israel’s prophesied dispersion and rebirth in the last days (Ezekiel 36:24-28, 37:14).
Empires fell because of their dealings with Israel: Babylon, Medo Persia, Greece and Rome are gone. Christian denominations are under judgment and have missed innumerable blessings for replacement and covenant theologies that have marginalized Israel and their flocks have scattered.
In the 20th century, Britain saw it’s vast power begin to deteriorate after Winston Churchill decided to cut the land that had been allotted to Israel in the 1917 Balfour Declaration, and hand the east side of the Jordan River to Arabs to establish Trans-Jordan.
Today on Britain’s churches are empty while Mosques are getting overflow crowds. Britain is a shell of it’s former self in fulfillment of Obadiah 1:15.

Ohio now holds more than $200 million in Israel Bonds, making the state the largest holder of Israeli bonds in the world.
