JD: David as we wrap it up today even though anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world as I’ve just said would you not say that the last thing a Christian should ever want to do is to set himself against the Jewish people?
DJ: Absolutely Jimmy. First of all our Savior is Jewish from the tribe of Judah from the lineage of David and he will rule from the Davidic throne first for 1,000 years on this earth and then throughout eternity in the new heavens and the new earth. Secondly in Genesis chapter 12 God made 7 promises to Abraham. One of those promises said that God will bless those who bless you meaning Abraham and curse those who curse Abraham meaning Abraham and his seed through Isaac and Jacob. The Abrahamic Covenant is an eternal unconditional Covenant and that means that no failure on the part of Abraham or his descendants can remove them from the provisions of the Covenant. So it’s still in effect.
So the most foolhardy thing that anyone could do is would be to set himself or his nation against the Jewish people as a whole or against individual Jews. And rather we should look for opportunities to serve and to minister to the Jewish people and to stand with the nation of Israel as she is surrounded by enemies that want to destroy her. This doesn’t mean we blindly support every decision or policy made by Israel. That’s different then intentionally positioning oneself as Israel’s enemy. And obviously the greatest gift we can give to the Jewish people is the hope of forgiven sin and eternal life through faith in their Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ. And if a Jewish person today and ethnic Jew comes to faith in Christ he will miss that terrible Holocaust to come. He will be taken up as part of the body of Christ to be with the Lord forever.
JD: David James explaining why Christians should never be anti-Semitic.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Though the Jewish people are a small number of all the population of the earth God has chosen them for a special purpose, that’s Exodus 19:5 & 6. This holy nation will be a people who God has set in place to be a testimony of a all mighty holy God and to be a testimony of the blessing that all will receive if we obey that all mighty holy God.
Remember the Messiah Jesus Christ was born of a young Jewish girl. He was born to be the Savior of the world and also to be the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, that’s Revelation 19:16. God’s plan for the Jewish people will be a time of Jacobs trouble, Jeremiah 30:7, and then to give them a kingdom forever.
