LAS VEGAS (CC) - While the NFL game between the Minnesota Vikings and Las Vegas Raiders was a snoozer on Sunday, the custom cleats worn by pro-Israel kicker, Greg Joseph, to win the game 3-0 for the Vikings, awakened much online interest in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, as well as in the shocking anti-Jewish sentiment and behaviors running rampant in the world.

Awakened by the Covenant of Peace consolidated by Jesus Christ, Christians viewed the online interest with attentiveness, as we are brothers and sisters in faith with Jewish people who keep the traditions of Judaism, while they are worshiping Jesus: aka Messianic Jews.

As Christians, we will always stand with the land of Israel. We bless the descendants of Abraham who inherited the Promised Land gifted by Jehovah, as described in the Holy Bible. The Lord loves Israel and His obedient children do too.

Unashamed of his Judaism, Joseph used his right cleat to boot a 36-yard yard field goal through the uprights in the fourth quarter, scoring the only points in a game that was the lowest-scoring NFL contest since 2007.

He scored many "cool points" for standing up for what he believes in.

Christians would do well doing the same, and not be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Joseph had previously declared his love for Jerusalem, writing on social media shortly after the October 7 Hamas terrorist massacres that kickstarted the Israel-Hamas War: "Join me in my "Kicks for Israel" campaign this season as I pledge to make a difference in Israel during these tragic and unprecedented times. Help us support @leketisrael with donations for food and clean water for the affected innocent civilians! @Vikings"
