The horrific, disgusting, hate-filled, murderous, anti-Semitic display that took place in Pittsburgh is an ugly reminder of what can happen when people buy into anti-Biblical lies to justify their hate, then act on it. Law-abiding citizens always end up getting hurt or worse in some way. Anti-Semitism that we are witnessing in these last days should come as no surprise if we regularly study God’s word. As I’ve stated before, Bible prophecy predicts it several times as a sign of the end times.
Ignorant people love proclaiming how proud they are to not believe what the Bible says, when they really haven’t read the whole Bible to begin with and/or they are willfully ignorant of the fact that hate for Jews seen spreading around the world is one of many things proving that the Bible is true. Why are we seeing all this anti-Semitism? Simply put, it’s happening because Satan knows the crucial, pivotal role that Jews will play in the unfolding of God’s ultimate plans for this world. And he’ll do anything and everything he can think of to try to stop it–including murder (see Revelation 12).
Yes, it’s true most Jews have rejected their Messiah the Lord Jesus, but since God prophesied he would always have a remnant of believers among the Jews, he will preserve their existence as a people for as long as this Earth stands. 144,000 of them will even preach the gospel during the great tribulation in the future (Revelation 7:3-8). National Socialists, Islamists, the Vatican and other Jew-haters are ultimately fighting a losing battle on behalf of their spiritual father. Anti-Semites are among the people God will ultimately destroy in the end along with Satan and his coming anti-Semitic Antichrist at the top of that list.
We may shed our tears and grieve now when hate is carried out against the Jews as we push against such hate, but we should be encouraged that their future in God’s plan is bright and everlasting. The apostles were a clear sign of that since most of them were Jews. The teaching that God is completely finished with Jews as his chosen people is totally false doctrine. Paul through the Holy Ghost said the following:
1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin…
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins…
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. Romans 11
Paul spoke this so confidently because the Holy Spirit must have taught him this scripture from the prophet Jeremiah:
35 Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name:
36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
37 Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord. Jeremiah 31
Essentially, the Lord told Jeremiah he would never, ever cut off Israel, which includes the Jewish diaspora. Yes, Jews should be criticized when they do wrong since they as sinful humans aren’t above reproach. But to take that criticism to the point of saying they should not exist or should be deprived of rights just for being Jewish is unreasonable and is the type of condemnation Jesus himself condemned when he said “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” May Israel be blessed.
