LISTEN: ‘God of Israel’ song spreading message of peace

God of Israel, a peace anthem performed by US evangelist and worship leader Sean Feucht, Lebanese Christian Carine Bassili and Jewish Israeli singer-songwriter and musical producer Yair Levi topped iTunes Christian music charts hours after it was released on Monday.

In an interview with Charisma News, Bassili who has been banned from her own country since last December for releasing yet another tune about Israel, says standing with Israel doesn’t mean she is against her own country or the “innocent people of Palestine”.

“We must obey the Word of God no matter what the price,” she says. “He is the true God of Israel. Whether they like it or not, the word Israel is mentioned in the Bible 2 500 times. We can’t escape or hide the truth, but the problem in Lebanon is that not all Christians read the Bible and for Muslims, it’s even written in the Quran 70 to 80 times. Human beings are driven by emotions and not facts anymore, sadly, but there is hope as long as we are still here and doing the Lord’s work.”

Bassili says God of Israel. which is sung in Arabic, Hebrew and English, was written in a time of war against Israel in spring 2022, when she says her heart was broken for Israeli like never before.

“While I was communicating with my Israeli friends, they were in their bomb shelters,” she says. “I started playing psalms on my guitar and fell into Psalm 105 and that was the birth of a song written in a time of war, before this war even broke out.”

By text, Bassili has kept in contact with Levi, who is in Israel and is serving in the military. Before the war with Hamas broke out he had been scheduled to tour in October in Israel.

Speaking about the song to Charisma News this week, Feucht said: “It’s really powerful when you see people that are not supposed to be seen together that are seen together, and the song is an act of God itself. It’s highly controversial because it doesn’t go along with the media’s narrative and it shows people there is a better way. It shows that people that God can bring about a unity that the world says can never happen. The song in of itself is a prophetic sign of unity and breakthrough that God wants to bring right now to the world we live in.”
