My dear friends G-d greatly cares about the Jew. Israel is the apple of His eye, but tragically G-d is not the Apple of Israel's eye (as a whole and in spirit and in truth - Psalm 119), at least not yet (Zech. 12:8-12, 13:1-2)! For Michael and his audience, to fully comprehend and understand the “why” will take faith in Almighty G-d and objective biblical insight. If you REJECT this ETERNAL and DIVINE perspective for a subjective earthly one you will go insane with all the injustice that dominates our world. You will loose your mind trying to come to grips with the reality of our day. Tragically, Israel’s worst days are yet to come (Jer. 30:4-8, Zech. 13:8-9, 14:1-4, Rev. 12:6-17). If you (as our visitor) truly have the courage you will finish reading the rest of this post and receive the witness of Almighty God's Word as TRUTH and REALITY as that it is. To hear and receive truth takes great courage. We must abandon our own perceptions for Almighty's ETERNAL one. This world and its highly organized complex is much bigger or greater than any of us could EVER imagine (Eph. 6:12). May you as our reader today access Almighty God's ETERNAL perspective and use it. For in doing so it will SET YOU FREE from the shackles of the temporal confines of this present evil world and change you FOREVER. God Speed my friend as you debark on your journey in to TRUTH and REALITY! The Day of the Lord is truly at hand!
Why is it that Israel has constantly been under the thumb of the godless nations of this world since the Babylonian captivity some 2600 years ago? The Jewish people have for centuries asked this age old question with absolutely no answers to be found. This dilemma has scared Jews for centuries and has caused them to harden their hearts against their King and Creator (Isa.13:9, 2 Chron. 7:12-22, Mal. 1-4). How could Almighty G-d disown and forsake His people, His glorious and wonderful promises and His ETERNAL covenant with the "Apple of His eye"? The answer is very simple and comforting to the son of Abraham who will shama (hear)... and have ears to hear. HE HASN'T. He NEVER HAS. Almighty G-d NEVER has abandon Israel, but tragically the nation of Israel has forsaken Him, the Fountain of living waters as history can attest (Lev. 26, 2 Chron. 7:12-22, Jer. 2:11-13, 4:8).
Israel throughout their biblical recorded history has served other gods (false and vain ideologies) and have violated Almighty G-d's covenants and ETERNAL promises throughout the centuries and have reaped on themselves the horrific consequences of a G-dless existence which has been void of divine reality and truth (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-32, 2 Chron. 7:12-22, Jer. 2, Rom. 1:18-32). It has been the rebellious and clueless sons of Abraham who know NOT their ETERNAL covenant with Almighty G-d (The G-d of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, Elijah and Ezra) and have forsaken and violated it thus reaping the centuries of a godless self willed life. No matter how good, sincere and noble their intentions may have been throughout the centuries and to the present the Jew has still rejected their divine calling and are at present still out of the Will of the God of Israel (Lev. 26). These are not the mere words and harsh opinions of a bunch of goyim ignorant fishermen, but the Word of Almighty G-d! The Pentitude, Psalms and Prophets all abundantly at est to the stiffnecks and hard heartedness of the children of Israel when it comes to obeying His covenants (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-32, 2 Chron 7:12-22, Jer. 2 ). The whole Old Testament (Tanahk) is a sobering warning and frightening rebuke to the seed of Abraham who have gone astray (2 Chron 7:12-22). Time and time again in the Torah, Psalms and Prophets, Almighty G-d rebukes the nation of Israel for their hard hearts, stiffnecks, backsliding and their gross transgressions against the Law of Moses and Almighty God Himself (Ex. 32:9, 33:5, Lev. 26:41, 2 Kings 17:14, Isa. 48:4, 63:10, Jer. 2:19). Oh how horrifically sobering! My dear Jewish friend, DO NOT be offended at our words, but BE OBJECTIVE and see for yourselves what the Word of the Lord has to say, for it is in Almighty G-d's PERFECT love that we challenge you all with all our being to see for yourself what the Torah, Psalms and Prophets have to say about the Messiah of Israel and his glorious plan for you.
Tragically the nation of Israel and the Jewish people have been OUT of Almighty G-d’s will and program since their Messiah was CUT OFF by the Israeli leadership and nation of that day (Isa. 53, Dan. 9:26). Tragically there was only a very small remnant of Jews at that time who received their Messiah and placed their trust in Him (Psalm 110:1, Isa. 9:6-7, 40:1-8, 53, Mic. 5:2, Mal. 3). It was after the Messiah's resurrection from the grave (Psalm 16:10, 110:1, Isa. 52:13-15, 53:10) that Almighty G-d took the remnant of believing Israel who had received their Messiah and raised up the "called out assembly" of the Messiah to be used of G-d to reach the nations of the world with the message of ETERNAL salvation. It is during this time that Almighty G-d has put aside unbelieving Israel for the time being while G-d works out His redemptive program through the "called out assembly (i.e., the Church) among the Gentiles and scattered believing Jews. It was finally in 70 A.D. that the Roman general Titus destroyed the temple and Jerusalem and scattered the surviving sons of Abraham unto the four corners of the world and that is where they are today (Lev. 26, 2 Chron. 7:12-22, Ezek 39:23-28).
My dear Jewish friend, may I ask you this very simple question in all sincerity? How could the children of Abraham be removed OUT of their land if they as a people were obedient to Almighty G-d and His covenants (Lev. 26, 2 Chron. 7:12-22)? They NEVER could! The diaspora has been a witness against the people of Israel and testifies to the fact that they have a problem with their relationship to Almighty G-d. It is true since 1948 Israel has been back in the land, but it is only because Almighty G-d is preparing (Ezek. 37:1-8) them for the return of Moses and Elijah (Mal. 4), the time of Jacob's trouble (Jer. 30:7, Zech. 12-14), national repentance (Zech. 12:9-14, 13:1-2), Messiah's second coming (Ps.110:1, Isa. 9:6-7, 63:1-4, Zech. 14:1-4) and establishment of the Kingdom age from Jerusalem (Isa. 9:7, 11:1-10, Dan. 2:44-45, 7:13-14, Mic. 4:1-4, Ezek. 43:1-7, Zech. 14:16-21).
Since 70 A.D. the godless gentiles of the world have been absolutely brutal to the "Apple of Almighty G-d's eye" climaxing with the Jewish Holocaust under the murderous Nazis. Almighty G-d's chastising hand has been clearly seen but Israel has refused to return to their KING and have misread Almighty G-d's chastisement (Lev. 26, Deut. 28-40). Tragically since 70 A. D Almighty G-d has given them over to their own desires, works and thinking and they have reaped the horrific whirlwind ever since (Lev. 26, 2 Chron. 7:12-22). One of the scattered children of Israel's most fearsome aggressors and adversaries has not been Islam, but apostate Christendom, who they themselves are godless and have rejected the sound biblical teachings of the Jewish Tanakh (Bible) and those of her Messiah. They have exceeded all of the wickedness of Israel's enemies and in the end Almighty G-d has and will judge them for their dealings with the apple of His eye (Gen 12:3). Even when out of the will of Almighty G-d, G-d's protective eye is on His people and has preserved her from total annihilation (Isa. 54:10, Jer.30:11 46:28, Ezek. 11:16, Amos 9:8). But of a truth, the scattered Jew has NO better friend IN the world then those who are the TRUE believers in Israel's Messiah and Lord, Yeshua Ha'Mashiach and they know it (Gen. 12:3, Psalm 110:1, Isa. 53).
Sadly today the sons of Abraham are OBLIVIOUS to the promises made to Abraham and the world by Almighty G-d about the very One who would come in his line, his SEED (single)? G-d's promise to the whole world is found in Abraham , "In your SEED shall ALL nations be blessed" (Gen. 18:18, 22:18, 26:4, 28:14, Gal. 3:6-14)! That SEED is referring to the Lamb of G-d that TAKES AWAY the transgressions of the ENTIRE world (Isa. 9:6-7, 53, Dan. 9:26, Micah 5:2, Gal. 3:6-14). The Messiah of Israel IS Almighty G-d the Son (Ps. 110:1, Prov. 30:4, Isa. 9:6-7, Mic. 5:2), the Lamb of G-d (Isa. 53, Dan. 9:26) and the RIGHTEOUS Branch of Almighty G-d (Jer. 23:5; 33:1)!
“And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed." (Isa. 6:9-10)
"For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness." (Isa. 10:22)
My beloved Jewish friend, may I ask you these very personal questions?
Where is YOUR atonement for your transgressions against the Holy Law of Almighty G-d (Lev. 17:11, Isa. 53)?
Where is YOUR sin-offering for your cleansing of transgressions against the Holy Law of Almighty G-d (Lev. 4, 17:11, Isa. 53)?
Where is YOUR lamb to offer in your place for your transgressions (Lev. 17:11, Isa. 53)?
Where is YOUR propitiation that FULLY satisfies the PERFECT RIGHTEOUS DEMANDS OF THE HOLY LAW OF G-D (Isa. 53:10-11, Zech. 12:8-14)?
Have you PERFECTLY kept the LAW of Moses with your whole HEART, SOUL and MIND (Deut. 6:5)?
My dear Jewish friend, ALL (Jew and Gentile) crucially need Almighty God's FULL SATISFYING propitiation which all the lambs of sacrifice pointed to but could NEVER take away (Ps. 40:6-8, Isa. 40:16). ETERNAL redemption is ONLY found in the PERFECT life, death and resurrection of the Messiah of Israel, the Branch of RIGHTEOUSNESS (Psalm 110:1, Isa 9:6-7, 53, Jer. 33:15, Zech. 12:10). The Messiah was born of the seed of woman and of the line of Abraham (Gen. 3:15, 12:3, Isa. 7:14, 9:6-7, Micah 5:2). He laid down His life and shed His Blood for the transgressions of the world and was rejected by both Jew and Gentile (Isa. 53:1-10, Dan. 9:26, Zech. 12:10). He was buried (Ps. 16:10, Isa 53:9) and triumphantly AROSE from the dead for our justification and now sits at the RIGHT HAND of ALMIGHTY G-D in Heaven (Psalm 16:10,110:1, Isa. 52:13, 53:12, 9:6-7). He will come again to redeem Israel and will establish His Kingdom from Israel (Psalm 110:1, Isa. 11:1-10, Dan. 2:44-45, 7:13-14, Micah 4:1-4, Zech. 12-14).
It is our sincere desire that you would come to know the Messiah of Israel and let the Word of the Lord open your eyes and heart to the realities of time and ETERNITY. Tragically Israel's WORST DAYS are not very far away and tragically they will NOT listen to Moses and Elijah who Almighty God will send to them in that Day (Mal. 4, Rev. 11:3-12). After a great and decisive victory over Israel's border enemies Israel will achieve a temporal peace and will become very prosperous (Ezek. 38:8). It will be at this time that Israel will enter into a treaty with a man on behalf of their defeated enemies for seven years (Dan. 9:27, Rev. 6:1-2). In the middle of that treaty - as the world is undergoing great war, pestilence and famine (Rev. 6-9) - this man will break His covenant with Israel (Dan. 7, Rev. 11:7, 13) and he will lead the world to FULLY seek to eradicate Israel from being a people (Deut. 4:30, Dan. 12, Jer. 30:4-7, Zech. 13:8-9, Rev. 12). It will take this GREAT TRIBULATION AND THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON that will case Israel to FINALLY cry out to the LORD as He returns from Heaven's glory and they will greatly repent and be mightily converted (Isa. 63:1-4, 66:7-9, Zech. 12:1-4, :8-14, 13:1-2,6, 14:1-4, Rev. 1:7, 19:11-21).
We are not far away from these days. My dear Jewish friend may you have an ear to hear today The Gospel call of the Messiah of Israel. May you by faith ask Almighty G-d to reveal to you through His Holy Word the Messiah of Israel and may you receive Him as your Lord and Savior (Ps.110:1, Isa. 53).
Beloved, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
