Don’t Mess With The Jews

Every time conversations turn towards trouble in the Middle East involving threats about, or violence against, Israel, my response is always the same. “Don’t mess with the Jews.”

If the United States doesn’t cultivate and maintain friendly and supportive relations with Israel, the U.S. will suffer loss. Common sense and history tell us that messing with Israel, opposing Israel, attacking Israel, threatening Israel, or aligning with Israel’s enemies will end in loss and ultimate destruction for those who rise up against God’s people.

Why hasn’t Iran or the Palestinians, Lebanon, the Egyptians or Syria wiped the world’s only Jewish-majority state off the map?

Think about it.

Israel is a sitting duck. Here’s a nation a tad smaller than New Jersey, population 7,900,000, bordered on three sides by its fiercest enemies. The International community considers the approximately 190,000 Israeli citizens living in settlements in the West Bank as illegal. Russia wants Jerusalem to become part of an international community. The Russians support the Palestine and claim the country has an inalienable right to Jerusalem as its capital.

The United States has traditionally supported Israel and its claim to Jerusalem as its capital. However, from president to president relationships between the two countries waivers, depending on the political climate in both countries at the time.

A History Of Devastation

During its long history, Jerusalem has been destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times, according to Wikipedia. Disputes continue over which nation has the right to claim Jerusalem as the legal and outright capital. The Palestinians claim Jerusalem will ultimately be the capital of a future Palestinian state. The Jews claim Jerusalem as its capital as well. Christians also consider Jerusalem as the Holy City where Jesus ministered and was crucified and resurrected. Christians also believe Jerusalem is the place where Pentecost occurred and the Second Coming of Christ will begin, according to Wikipedia.

The disputes over which country claims Jerusalem as its capital are, of course, moot. Jerusalem is God’s Holy City, the home of His people. God instructed His people to build a temple in Jerusalem, where the Jews would worship and God would dwell among His people. Despite Israel’s repeated disobedience, rebellion, grumbling and complaining, intermarrying, worshiping other gods, and rejection of God’s care and feeding, the Jews remain His people, just as He promised Abraham in Genesis.

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you. Genesis 12:1-3

Did you catch that promise in verse 2? I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse. “Whoever.” That’s an all-inclusive pronoun. It means every one, every nation, tribe, country or state that curses God’s people, God will curse.

Very simple biblical principle: curse the Jews, oppose the Jews, mess with the Jews in any way and you’ll be toast.

Don’t Miss Part 2

In Part 2 we’ll explore the characters in Scripture who wrote this story and caused the great divide between the only two religions in the world. That’s right, there are only two: those who love God and claim Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior; and those who don’t. The Bible clearly says the ones who love God and claim Jesus as their Savior will be blessed. Those who don’t will be cursed. This is not solely about salvation, it is about every person’s, and every nation’s, relationship with or support for Israel. By the way, riding the fence on this one doesn’t count. I firmly believe that the ones who remain silent and don’t make a commitment to support Israel, or say it doesn’t matter to them, will be counted among the cursed. I’m just sayin’.

    We had better be on the Jews side if we know what is good for us.

    God is going to restore the kingdom on earth to the Jews in the future and nothing can thwart that.

    Put it this way the whole world could attack Israel with every modern weapon they have that they can carry and they would lose and not prosper, or they could throw every nuclear bomb on the planet at Israel and they would fail to hit their target.

    God will not let them go down for it has begun for Israel to reclaim all of their land.

    God always restores Israel when they are punished and scattered off their land and He will do it again after they have borne their shame.

    God said He is going to gather the whole house of Israel and put them back on their land and they shall know the LORD their God from that time forward and He will never hide His face from them again which means they will be in the truth from that time forward.

    The antichrist will establish peace in the Middle East and it will pave the way for all Jews to go to Israel for the Gentile nations will cause it to happen and the New Age Christ wants them all back on their land but God means it for good towards the Jews to turn them to the truth.

    With the conflict going on in Israel between the Jews and Palestinians it could be close to the New Age Christ to establish peace in the Middle East.

    God said He will make a full end of all Gentile nations but not make a full end of Israel.

    Israel is blinded in part until salvation is no longer available to the Gentiles which is when the world follows the antichrist and so all Israel shall be saved which Jesus said the Jews will not see Jesus again until they accept Him as Lord and Savior which they will do for the gifts and calling of God are without repentance on God’s part.

    God said if the ordinances of heaven, the sun, and the moon, and the stars are still shining then His covenant with Israel still is in affect and they will never cease from being a nation, and he has not cast away His people that he once foreknew.

    God said He will gather all nations together against Jerusalem and then save the Jews and punish the world for their sins and iniquities against Him.

    Which half of the city will be taken and the other half saved which because of the peace treaty the Jews split Jerusalem with the Palestinians which the world tramples on the half of the Palestinians to get to the Jews but then they are stopped as Jesus melts the flesh off their bones with the brightness of His coming.

    Which God said if anybody goes against Jerusalem, the Jews, they will be cut in pieces.

    Isa 31:4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

    Isa 31:5 As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

    It has already begun of the Jews reclaiming their land which Israeli fighter pilots like birds flying paved the way for Israel to win the 6 day war in 1967, and took possession of Jerusalem.

    Nah 2:3 The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots shall be with flaming torches in the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.
    Nah 2:4 The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.

    God tells us of automobiles which Nahum did not know to call them that but knew chariots is a form of transportation so we are sure in the end time.

    God is going to restore the kingdom on earth to the Jews the whole house of Israel that is why the Jews cannot be defeated or wiped out although they appear to be small in number compared to her enemies.

    Amen, as always, Evelyn, thank you for your kindness and comments.

  3. The existence of the Jews is one of the countless proofs of the truth of the Bible.

    God’s promises are conditional. We choose for them to become blessings or curses to us. The Lord is faithful to His promises which are ever true.
