Is Your Position On the Jewish People and Israel a Salvation Issue?
I saw something in Scripture that I have never seen before! In Matthew 25:40, Jesus says, “…inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” The word “brethren” in Greek means “brothers from the womb” or the physical Jewish people. Jesus is saying whatever you do to the Jewish people you do to Him. He then warns of the repercussions of disobedience in Matthew 25:46, “And these will go away into everlasting punishment…”
The basis of God judging a nation or persons for their stand on the Jew is found in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you…” In fact, God says the swing vote that releases judgment on a nation in the last days is for dividing up the land of Israel:
“I will also gather all nations…
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land (Joel 3:2).”
But most Jewish people do not believe in Jesus. Some go so far as to argue that God has forsaken them and they are no longer chosen. Paul answers those people in Romans 11:28-29, “Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”
I urge you to study Scripture and history. God has always used the Jewish people to bless or judge the nations. God judges Israel directly for sin but uses opposing Israel to trigger judgment on the nations for sin.
We are saved by grace plus nothing. But this I know: No unrepentant sinner will go to heaven, as Hebrews 12:14 says, “Pursue…holiness, without which no one will see The Lord.”
This I know, anti-Semitism is sin.
This I know, God is about to have a major Jewish revival in Israel and the nations. This Jewish revival will cause the completion of the One New Man:
“…He…has made both (Jew and Gentile) one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation…so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace (Ephesians 2:14-15).” The Hebrew word for peace is “shalom” which also means completion!
This completion will trigger the greatest Gentile revival in history. Amos 9 describes this revival that will come when the Tabernacle, or in Hebrew, “family,” of David is restored or saved.
I can’t wait to participate in what God has planned!
