LET THIS SINK IN:
The Book of Revelation tells us that many believers in Messiah will be beheaded (not shot or stabbed or hanged, but beheaded):
Revelation 20:4. And I saw thrones, and (persons) sat on them, and judgment was given to them, and to the souls that were BEHEADED for the testimony of Yeshua and for the Word of Elohim: and these are they who had not worshipped the beast of prey nor its image; neither had they received the mark upon their forehead or on their hand; and they lived and reigned with their Mashiyach those thousand years. (AENT)
QUESTION: WHO are the ONLY people on the planet who still perform beheadings? It’s not a hard question. Even such “brainiacs” as you Harvard students should be able to answer that one…
But if you can’t, let me clarify for you: It’s the Muslim terrorists occupying Gaza – which Israel gave to them for the sake of peace! They and their ilk have been provoking “the Jews” for centuries; and have proven, over and over again that they don’t just want them out of Israel (so that they – the Muslims – can take over); rather, they want them dead, wiped off the face of the earth!
If you’re sitting there chuckling under your breath over that little tidbit, think about this: While YOU hate the Jewish people, YAHWEH-ELOHIM has made it clear since the beginning, that He LOVES them! In the passage below, He is making a “forever” covenant with our first Forefather, Abraham:
Genesis 12: 3 "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." (CJB)
Deuteronomy 7:6-8: For you are a people set apart as holy for ADONAI your God. ADONAI your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his own unique treasure. 7 ADONAI didn't set his heart on you or choose you because you numbered more than any other people - on the contrary, you were the fewest of all peoples. 8 Rather, it was because ADONAI loved you, and because he wanted to keep the oath which he had sworn to your ancestors, that ADONAI brought you out with a strong hand and redeemed you from a life of slavery under the hand of Pharoah king of Egypt. (CJB)
YES, “the Jews” (a blanket term used for all 12 Tribes) have disappointed Him. Haven’t YOU?) But, here is a modern-day example that He has continued to KEEP His promises to THEM: He used what Hitler did to the Jews during the Holocaust, to bring about Isaiah’s prophecy that Israel would become a nation again, and that it would happen in one day (see Isaiah 66:7-8). It happened on May 14, 1948 - when "the world" briefly felt sorry for the Jews and returned Israel to them, and they were able to declare independence for Israel as a united and sovereign nation for the first time in 2,900 years!
That same day, the United States issued a statement recognizing Israel's sovereignty. And, only hours beforehand, a United Nations mandate expired, ending British control of the land. During a 24-hour span of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had formally ceased, and Israel had declared its independence, and its independence was acknowledged by other nations. Modern Israel was literally born in a single day! (See our article, Israel, Bible and Prophecy.)
Oh! And let’s not forget: Messiah Yeshua (whom you call “Jesus”) was born into the Tribe of Judah! If it hadn’t been for those “Jews” you hate so much, you wouldn’t have the ONLY Mediator ever, who shed his blood to give YOU a chance to get into “heaven” because NOBODY gets to “heaven” (John 14:6) unless they “believe in” Messiah Yeshua and live according to YAHWEH’s Divine Instructions in Righteousness… (Yes, Yeshua is a JEW!)
RETURNING TO THE POINT:
No matter what “the world” does to the Jewish people, God has ALWAYS kept His promises to bless and protect them. THAT alone should tell you something!
He GAVE the Land is Israel to “the Jews”; and they have been bending over backwards to accommodate the demands of surrounding Islamic countries whose founding father was Ishmael that “…wild donkey of a man, whose hand will be against everyone, and everyone's hand will be against him...” (Inform yourself about these two half-brothers.)
Genesis 15: 18 That day ADONAI made a covenant with Avram: "I have given this land to your descendants - from the Vadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates River - 19 the territory of the Keni, the K'nizi, the Kadmoni, 20 the Hitti, the P'rizi, the Refa'im, 21 the Emori, the Kena'ani, the Girgashi and the Y'vusi." (CJB)
Deuteronomy 34: 4 "This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, 'I will give it to your offspring'"… (CJB)
Leviticus 25: 23 "The land is not to be sold in perpetuity, because the land belongs to me -you are only foreigners and temporary residents with me." (CJB)
Ezekiel 43:7 He said, "Human being, this is the place for my throne, the place for the soles of my feet, where I will live among the people of Isra'el forever. (CJB)
The passages above reveal how YAHWEH feels about HIS Land; and that His Land belongs to “the Jews!” YAHWEH even outlined the borders of Israel for Moshe (Moses) in Numbers 34:1-15!
And since GOD ALMIGHTY said these things, it proves that Israel is quite simply the most important piece of Real Estate in the entire Universe - and for all those who would seek to divide it or give it to someone else or even "internationalize" it, be advised He still wants it, and YOU are NOT getting it! Nor will He allow you to wipe out HIS people!
Unfortunately, NOTHING will change until Yeshua returns to teach humanity personally for a thousand years! Zecheriah 12:2-3 tells us that all the nations of the Earth will take up arms against Israel, and YHWH's chosen people will be surrounded. But He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep, (Psalm 121:4) and HE will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. (Zechariah 14:3)
The final battle in the Age of Man will be for control of Jerusalem, a place no one wanted until YHWH chose it as His own. (2 Chronicles 6:5-6). Since then, the forces opposed to Him have ceaselessly tried to take it from Him, for in the spiritual realm control of Jerusalem signifies victory over ELOHIM.
But this is what He said – and what HE says stands FOREVER:
Ezekiel 37: 21 Then say to them that Adonai Elohim says: 'I will take the people of Isra'el from among the nations where they have gone and gather them from every side and bring them back to their own land. (CJB)
So, YOU - Harvard loudmouths and all others who hate “the Jews” - are free to do so; but know this: GOD LOVES them! They are His people – and anyone who hates His people does NOT belong to Him – no matter how much they “believe in God” or warm the pews in their churches or Mosques or wherever they worship their various “gods”…
More than 300 Bible prophecies have come true, and continue to unfold before our very eyes! People around the world have been trying to kill off “the Jews” since time immemorial – and yet God has continued to bless them.
Israel belongs to HIS people - blanketly referred to as “Jews”; but which include ALL 12 tribes mentioned in the Torah … and anyone who goes up against them will LOSE in the end. The Bible says so! Here are some forgotten facts about the Israel-Arab conflict.
It will behoove you to remember that, for centuries everybody (especially the spawn of Ishmael) has hated “the Jews” and in many ways, fought over this tiny nation called Israel, to claim it as "their" holy place. Truth is, as has been revealed again and again, NO ONE will get to exterminate His people, nor seize their Land for themselves!
JUST REMEMBER: The Bible prophecies have been, and continue to unfold before our very eyes – and Israel ALWAYS wins in the end. If you hate Israel, then you hate its God as well … and you WILL have a lot of explaining to do on Judgment Day!
