Dear ones in Christ,
Last week as I left our building, a brother in the Lord asked me what my position was on “the Jews.” I told him we supported Israel and prayed for them daily. This caused a reaction I didn’t expect.
He went to his car and handed me a couple of books. One was On the Jews and Their Lies, supposedly written by Martin Luther. I had heard of what was said to be Luther’s position.
My father hated Jews. I had a Catholic aunt who really hated them. In time that kind of talk wears you down. I didn’t know the Lord, and so I went along with it for a while.
But when I got saved and read that God will bless them that bless Israel, and curse him that curses Israel (Genesis 12:3), I came to my senses. People love to blame the Jews for crucifying Christ. Then they replace them with Christians, saying, “We are the true Israel; the Jews are not.”
Believers miss blessings because of this attitude. Don’t fall into this trap! Jesus will return and reign as the King of the Jews (Isaiah 24:23; Joel 3:1-2). Learn the truth about Nazi-type propaganda. Find out how God reacts to the nations’ treatment of the Jewish people. Read As America Has Done to Israel. It will alter your thinking.
Your brother in Christ,
