Are the Jews the Seed of Abraham?

 

 

I hope you will read this carefully.  The Church is full of the traditions of men on this point, as usual.  I know this is a contentious issue with most of the Church but I try to say only what the scriptures say so that when people argue with me they are arguing with God.  :o)  What was written in the letter covenant was written for the letter people, the Jews.  What was written in the Spirit covenant was written for the Spirit people, the spiritual Jews, the Church.

 

In the Spirit covenant who is a Jew?  (Rom.2:28) For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly (a natural Jew); neither is that circumcision which is outward in the flesh: (29) but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit not in the letter…  This spiritual circumcision of the heart he later describes as the cutting off of the flesh in being baptized into Christ (Col.2:11,12).  Paul said that only a “new creature” of the born again experience belongs to “the Israel of God” (Gal.6:15,16).  John said twice of natural fallen Israel, who worshiped in synagogues, “the blasphemy of them that say they are Jews, and they are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.”(Rev.2:9; see also 3:9).

 

Natural Israel as a whole is very lost having rejected the Son of God and the new birth so only a remnant of them will be saved through faith.  (Rom.9:27) And Isaiah crieth concerning Israel, If the number of the children of (natural) Israel be as the sand of the sea, it is the remnant that shall be saved.  Only a remnant of natural Israel will be saved but all spiritual Israel will be saved.  (Rom.11:19) Thou wilt say then, Branches were broken off (unbelieving natural Israel), that I (Gentile Church) might be grafted in. (20) Well; by their unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by thy faith. Be not highminded, but fear: (21) for if God spared not the natural branches (natural Israel), neither will he spare thee. (22) Behold then the goodness and severity of God: toward them that fell, severity; but toward thee, God's goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. (23) And they also, if they continue not in their unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. (24) For if thou wast cut out of that which is by nature a wild olive tree, and wast grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree; how much more shall these, which are the natural [branches], be grafted into their own olive tree? (25) For I would not, brethren, have you ignorant of this mystery, lest ye be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening in part hath befallen Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in; (Rom.11:26) and so all Israel shall be saved…  As you can see, "all Israel" here does not include unbelieving natural Israel, which was broken off through unbelief in Jesus.  "All Israel" is identified as those who are grafted into the olive tree through faith in Jesus.  This includes the Church and a remnant of natural Israel who will believe in the end times. 

 

This truth is enforced in with other witnesses.  (Rom.9:6)…For they are not all Israel, that are of (natural) Israel: (7) neither, because they are Abraham’s seed, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.  (8) That is, it is not the children of the flesh that are children of God; but the children of the promise are reckoned for a seed.  Notice that it is not the children of Abraham’s flesh or natural Israel that are called “all Israel” but the children of promise, which are “reckoned” as his seed.  (Gal.4:28) Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.  Notice that gentiles who believe the promise “are children of promise and as such are part of “all Israel.  To gentiles who walk by faith Paul said, “Abraham, who is the father of us all” (Rom.4:16).  The Lord shows us in Ephesians 2:11-18 that the promise of redemption in Christ to both natural Israel and the gentiles was for the purpose “that he might create in himself of the two one new man.”  So now Jews and gentiles who abide in Christ are “all Israel.”  Jesus speaking to natural Israel said,  “other sheep I have (Gentiles), which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd” (Jn.10:16).  Having said all this, even natural un-born again Israel is very important to the Church.  They are a type and shadow of what happens to the Church.

 

On another note there are Gentiles impersonating the natural seed of Abraham and attempting to keep the old covenant.  Although I do not agree with the letter, end time, prophetic views of brother Pike, his article below makes sense otherwise.   The fact that the Askenazi Jews are not of the bloodline of natural Israel but believe themselves to be is really nothing new historically.  Long before the Khazar Ashkenazi's impersonated the natural seed of Abraham, the Assyrians took the northern 10 tribes captive and resettled them in their own conquered lands and then repopulated Samaria with those Gentiles.  Then because the curse fell upon these in Israel they brought in Levites to teach them the covenant.  These then infiltrated and married among the Jews.  Secondly it was perfectly according to the law for proselyted Gentiles to be incorporated into Israel or in some cases those captured by war to be incorporated.  Jesus had Rahab in Joseph’s lineage in Matthew.  Even the Sephardic Jews who are thought to be pure bred could not be.  The Khazars being incorporated is just the latest sign of the Gentiles replacing the Jews.  God through Noah spoke this into existence.  "{Gen.9:27} God enlarge Japheth, And let him dwell in the tents of Shem; And let Canaan be his servant." 

 

Some have used the revelation of the Askenazi to bring hatred against the Jews.  Christians are forbidden "respect of persons" among all non believers so it doesn't matter whether they are Sephardic or Ashkenazi Jews.  We are commanded to "know no man after the flesh", to not have "respect of persons" and we are forbidden to "judge those who are without" for they have no grace from God to do or be any better.  All need the gospel and faith to become true Jews. 

 

Blessings,

David

 

 

The Khazars: Do They Destroy God’s Plan for the Jews?

By Rev. Ted Pike

             For more than a century, Zionists have claimed that modern Jews are entitled to Palestine because they are legitimate descendants of Abraham. Devout Christians and devout Jews both believe God’s plan for Israel involves a racially authentic Jewry.

            That’s why Jewish novelist Arthur Koestler’s 1976 book, The Thirteenth Tribe, was a political and theological bombshell. Koestler reveals how the central Eurasian nation, Khazaria, converted to Judaism in 740 AD. These 2 million Turkish warriors and traders became at least as devout as actual (Sephardic-Oriental) Jews, whose genetic lines trace back to Abraham. The Khazars soon convinced themselves that they really were authentic Jews.

            Today, Koestler asserts, most “Jews” worldwide are primarily descended from these ancient Turks—not Abraham! What does this mean for the millions of American Christians so eager to bless the children of Abraham? Has this Khazar corruption of Jewish blood also corrupted God’s plan for the Jews?

            In this special report, I will conclude that the Khazar merger is a fact of history, but that it didn’t destroy God’s plan for the Jews at all. Far from it! The conversion of these 2 million Gentiles actually fulfilled Bible prophecy, and powerfully confirms God’s timeless ethical covenant with His chosen people.  

Koestler’s Controversial Claims

            Many Christians and Jews felt deeply threatened by Koestler’s thesis. Scholars and genetic studies 1 attempted to debunk it. Yet historian and author Kevin Alan Brook has extensively documented Koestler’s basic thesis. And in his fascinating book, The Jews of Khazaria, Brook has confirmed Koestler in a way that many Jews find surprisingly acceptable.

            At www.khazaria.com, Brook offers a treasury of ancient commentaries on the Khazarian conversion. He also provides statements by dozens of scholars over the past century who confirm Koestler.

            Jewish and Slavonic historians by the dozens have accepted the Khazar origins of eastern European Jewry. Recent archeology reveals how the Khazar converts migrated to eastern Europe, especially Poland. There, they helped create the massive eastern European Ashkenazi “Jewish” populations. Millions of their descendants immigrated to America around the turn of the 20th century, and attained wealth in business, government, and media. 2

            Brook quotes this 1962 statement by the Jewish Journal of Sociology, which is typical of many: “Polish scholars agree that the oldest (Polish Jewish) settlements were founded by Jewish emigres from the Khazar state and Russia while the Jews from Southern and Western Europe began to arrive and settle only later…and that a certain proportion at least of the Jewish population (in earlier times, the main bulk) originated from the east, from the Khazar country…” 3

God's Purpose for the Khazars

            How does Koestler's thesis affect God’s plan for the Jews?

            As the Hebrews approached the Promised Land 3,500 years ago, God warned them that they had a choice: obey God and be blessed and dwell in the land, or disobey Him and be cursed and exiled. One of many ways God said He will curse a disobedient Jewish nation is by keeping them very small. “Then you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven for multitude, because you did not obey the Lord your God.” (Deut. 28:62)

            Israel did not obey God. She crucified her Lord and spiritual husband, Jesus Christ - screaming, “His blood be upon us and upon our children!” For their disobedience, the Jews incurred the curse of remaining small in number. This curse remains in effect today.

            During the Exodus, the Hebrew population was about 2 million 4, swelling to about 5-1/2 million in the time of David, 500 years later. What is the population of Jews descended from the tribe of Judah and Benjamin today? 2,950,000. 5 Incredibly, after three and a half millennia, authentic Jews number only 950,000 more than when Moses led them out of Egypt! That's a gain of less than 300 new people per year.

            Contrast such anemic population growth with the posterity of another descendant of Abraham: Ishmael. The father of the Arab world was the offspring of Abraham’s union with Sarah’s maid, an Egyptian of Hamitic not Semitic stock. In contrast to the racially authentic yet rebellious descendants of Judah, God said He would magnify the descendants of the half-breed, Ishmael. “…I will multiply thy seed exceedingly that it shall not be numbered for multitude.” (Gen 16:10) What’s the population of the Arab world today? Between 200 and 300 million! 6 At 250 million, that is an increase of 62,500 per year! Truly, God’s promise of blessing and cursing could not be more powerfully fulfilled.

            The curse of smallness, which clings to racially authentic Jewry today, is not a hereditary weakness. Exodus records that when God had "respect" for the Hebrews, they enjoyed prolific powers of reproduction, even as Egyptian slaves. They increased from several hundred to several million 400 years later.

            Today, Jewish inability to keep up with the phenomenal powers of Arab reproduction is a source of chronic frustration to the people of Israel and their leaders.

Israel to be Oppressed

            God also threatened that “aliens” would perpetually rule over Israel if she did not obey. “The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you shall go down lower and lower. He shall lend to you but you shall not lend to him: He shall be the head and you shall be the tail.” (Deut. 28:43,4)

            In 740 AD, Khazar “aliens” invaded Judaism in a bizarre twist of divine judgment. They did not do so territorially but spiritually and genetically. Like the ancient Philistines stealing the ark of the covenant, the Khazars appropriated the Talmud and Cabala (Zohar), the promises of Abraham, and even the name “Jew.” Swelling into a world population now estimated at 11.2 million 7, modern Ashkenazim, the primary force behind 20th century Zionism, dominate the government, military, economic, and religious authority of Israel. 950,000 authentic Jews in Israel 8, outnumbered 3 to 1, are largely excluded and discriminated against by the Khazar ruling majority 9, which totals about 3.7 million. Friction smolders between both groups.

            In his book, The Life of an American Jew in Racist, Marxist Israel, American Ashkenazi Jack Bernstein recounts discrimination which he suffered after marrying a Sephardic. He says that next to Arabs and Christians, Sephardim are most discriminated against in Israel (p.7).

            The most horrific example of Ashkenazi oppression of Sephardim occurred in the early 1950s. The US government needed human guinea pigs to test radiation levels; they contracted with the Ashkenazi leaders of Israel, in exchange for what would today be billions of dollars, to conduct such tests on nearly all Sephardic children living in Israel. One hundred thousand Sephardic children were subjected to nearly lethal levels of radiation, ostensibly to cure head lice. The tests killed 6,000 outright, and caused cancerous tumors and manifold afflictions to the rest. The Ashkenazi labor government also kidnapped 4,500 mostly Yemenite Sephardic infants, and shipped them to America for radiation testing. They were similarly devastated. 10

Jews are Here for the Duration

            Despite persecution and the threat of assimilation, relatively authentic Jews are still very much in the world. They fulfill Christ’s prophecy that “this generation (race) shall not pass away until all things be fulfilled.” (Matt. 24:34) Yet, contrary to expectations, they are encapsulated as a repressed minority within a much larger, more aggressive Gentile majority. In a bizarre symbiosis, Khazars carry racially authentic Jews with them toward fulfillment of anti-Christ objectives. Under God’s curse to remain small, the Sephardic-Oriental would never be able to attain such goals on their own. Such shared ambitions include their prophesied ascendancy over the nations (Ezekiel 38, 39), rebuilding their temple in Jerusalem, and receiving their false messiah - anti-Christ, who will sit in their temple, proclaiming himself to be God (Matt. 24:15, 2 Thes. 2:4).

            To make all this possible, God allowed the Khazar hordes to be engrafted - a nation of high intelligence and creativity but also historically possessing a dominant, warlike nature as well as skill and rapacious instinct toward commerce and finance. Incredibly, they became even more devoted proprietors of the Talmud and especially Cabala, using them as fuel for their own racism and revolution.

            One of the reasons Israeli Ashkenazim resent Sephardic-Orientals is that they became part of Zionism much later, largely after statehood of Israel in 1948. Historically, Sephardic-Orientals disagreed with the Zionist-Christian Evangelical assertion that obedience to God is no longer a prerequisite for Jews to occupy Palestine. Such primarily Orthodox Jews believed they were in exile because of their sins. They claimed that only when Messiah comes, persuading the Jewish people into repentance, would a truly obedient Jewry be allowed back into God’s promised land. However, with the spectacular successes of Zionism, most Sephardics capitulated. The Ashkenazi leadership has not forgotten or forgiven their hesitancy. As a result, authentic Jews in Israel remain under the heel of the Khazar aliens in perfect fulfillment of Deuteronomy 28. They are literally the tail, while the Khazars are the head.

            Who, then, constitute that repentant “Jewish” remnant so often prophesied to repent at Christ’s second coming? Will the Khazars be included?

            Christ, in Ezekiel 47, speaking out of His coming millennial temple as He rules in Jerusalem, gives the answer. “And it will come about that you shall divide by lot for an inheritance among yourselves and among the aliens [Khazars] who stay in your midst. And they shall be to you as the native-born among the sons of Israel: they shall be allotted an inheritance with you among the sons of Israel.” (Ezek 47:22) Christ makes it clear that, as in the Old Testament, Gentiles who earnestly adhere to Judaism, even in its apostate condition, can do so and be counted in the Jewish nation. 

Is God Finished with National Israel?

            Since Koestler’s revelations, various political and theological critics of Zionism have seized upon the Khazars as proof that whatever destiny God had for Israel has now been destroyed by Khazar admixture.

            Yet God is full of new mercies. Thousands of years ago, He and many great prophets and godly men and women labored, largely in vain, to bring forth a meager harvest of righteousness from the dry rocky soil of Israel's unbelief. The Pharisees, in their Talmud, call Jesus “a fool,” mocking His claim that He will ultimately receive obedience from the Jewish people (Sanh. 67a). Many today believe Jews have become so wicked and corrupting that it is inconceivable they should someday experience a mass outpouring of grace from the One their fathers crucified and reviled.

            But Jesus Christ is the Redeemer who extends love to the vilest sinner who calls upon Him for mercy. He formed the Jewish people to show forth the riches of His love to all nations. He will not be frustrated in that ambition, even by the depths of their apostasy.

            Don't be astonished, then, that He can miraculously save a remnant of Jews. It is a miracle that any of us are saved.

            He has saved the Jews before. He can do it again.

End Notes:

1 The Y chromosome in males and mitochondrial DNA in females never changes.  Consequently, despite the genetic shuffle of the centuries, it is possible to identify the general genetic make-up of the founders of an ethnic group.

 At least three major genetic studies, Hammer et al. (2000), Goldstein et al. (2002), and Behar et al. (2004), attempted to determine Jewish origins.  Their results are sometimes contradictory and puzzling even to geneticists. Yet Goldstein and Behar agree on one thing:  the founding mothers of Sephardim were very different from those of Ashkenazim.  All agree that it is "likely" that the male founding ancestors of Ashkenazim were largely of Mid-East origins - more so than the ancestors of Caucasian Europeans.

This suggests a plausible scenario explaining the presence of Mideast genes within the European Ashkenazim.

With conversion of the Khazars, history records an intense demand by the Khazarians themselves for Rabbinic teachers to instruct them in the requirements of a very complex religion.

Twelfth century Sephardic writer Yehuda HaLevi said the Khazars were "eager to learn the Jewish law… They sent to various countries for scholars and books and studied the Torah… They also honored and cherished the Israelites who lived among them." The Kuzari: The Book of Proof and Argument in Defense of the Despised Faith, HaLevi)

"Rabbis were then invited to come and teach Jewish laws and customs to the Jewish Khazars.  During the 200 years of the existence of this Jewish kingdom, most of the Khazars had learned the Jewish religion and were living in accordance with its laws." (Mordecai Soloff, How the Jewish People Grew Up, Cincinnati, Ohio, The Union of American-Hebrew Congregations 1936, p. 219-221)

It is inconceivable that the transformation of possibly two million idolatrous Khazars into zealous Jewish proselytes could be facilitated and sustained for two centuries without thousands of Rabbinic teachers.  Such must have consisted primarily of the priestly class, the "Kohanim."  These teachers were highly intelligent Talmudists. They were by definition male and most likely single, being visitors from distant lands such as Spain and Babylon.  Khazarian women were famous for their beauty, prized as wives by Byzantine nobility.   This was a perfect setting for pairing of Semitic genes with Gentile.

Constantine Akropolites (1250-1324) revealed that Khazars and Jews of the East may have freely intermarried. Jewish Khazars of Constantinople did intermarry and become fully integrated into the Jewish district, in contrast to Sephardim in the west.  See The Legend of St. Zotikos according to N. Constantine Akropolite, ed. Timothy S. Miller, 1994, p.339-376.

Goldstein’s 2002 study of the origins of Ashkenazi women indicated they had many founding mothers and such possessed widely diverse genes. This harmonizes with the fact that Khazar women, living in a major international trading center, lacked any tradition of racial exclusivity. 

The Khazarians would also have received Hebrew DNA from another major source.  Surrounding the period of initial Khazar conversion, large populations of Jews were expelled from Asia Minor and the Byzantine empire. They took refuge in their new "promised land," Khazaria.

A final thought: One wonders why DNA from the bones of 9th century Khazar graves has not been extracted and compared to DNA of eastern European "Jewry." Such research might help resolve a debate which has too long remained contentious.

2 Medieval Rabbinic authorities of the Sephardim in Toledo, Spain, were aware of the Khazars and made it clear that they did not grant equality to them. They discouraged intermarriage.  Such geographic, cultural and spiritual separation is revealed in the following statement to me by Khazar authority Muhammad Rafik: "The medieval German (and in fact all western European) Jews were not in contact with eastern European "Jewry." This can be easily demonstrated by the medieval synod of France, where the leading rabbis of Europe would congregate… Of over 100 attending rabbis at the 11th and 12th century synod, not one was from eastern Europe or even Poland.  They all came from Germany, Italy, France, Spain, the Netherlands, and England."

 Yet in The Jews of Khazaria, Brook expands our awareness of how small numbers of Jews entered medieval eastern Europe, largely from southern lands and as a result of persecution under the Crusades and Inquisition.  They found relative safety in the more tolerant Slavic countries of eastern Europe.  However, he agrees with many authorities that such numbers of authentic Jews vastly swelled as German Sephardim migrated into Khazar-dominated Poland in the 15th and 16th centuries.  Partly as a result of the more permissive intermarriage practices allowed by Maimonides, authentic and Polish Khazar Jewry at last significantly melded.  In time, such Khazar-Sephardim radiated westward, creating the stereotypic "German Jews," often resented by Sephardim of the west for their aggressiveness.

 In Khazar-dominated countries of eastern Europe outside Poland, the genes of the founding Khazars remained much less diluted.  Around the turn of the last century, such Khazar Ashkenazim joined a horde of European Jewish immigrants to America.

3 Adam Vetulani, in his article, "The Jews of Medieval Poland," in Jewish Journal of Sociology, volume 4 (December 1962), page 274.

4 Motivated by military considerations, Moses' census, Num. 1:46, records 603,550 "sons of Israel… from 20 years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war in Israel." Add an equal number of women of that age (603,550) plus young people under the age of 20 (perhaps 500,000) plus elderly and infirm over 60 (250,000).  Total: 1, 957,100.  The number of Hebrews in the exodus, not counting a "mixed multitude" (Ex. 12:38) of Gentiles surely totaled about several million.

THE JEWS BEHIND DA VINCI CODE

By Rev. Ted Pike

            Almost everyone realizes the Da Vinci Code is an unprecedented attack on Christianity and Jesus Christ. But most people don’t know that the media giants orchestrating this attack are Jewish.

            Sony Corporation, the force behind the Da Vinci Code movie, is the eye of this Jewish promotional octopus. In the late 1980s, Sony of Japan bought out Metro Goldwyn Meyer, Columbia Pictures, and United Artists. Former president of Jewish-owned CBS, Howard Stringer (a Jew), became second in command of Sony International. He is chair and CEO of Sony of America. 1

            Sony of America is dominated by Jewish names. Emily Susskind is president. Robert Wiesenthal is executive VP and chief financial officer; Nicole Seligman is executive VP and general counsel. Phil Weiser is CTO and senior VP. Michael Fidler Jr. is senior VP. Jay Samit is general manager of Connect. Gretchen Griswold is director of corporate communications. 2

            Sony’s subsidiary, Columbia Pictures, maker of the Da Vinci Code movie, is headed by Amy Pascal, a Jew. She is also chairman of Sony’s Motion Picture Group. 3  The producer of the film is Brian Grazer, a Jew.

            The screenplay was written by well-known, Jewish screenwriter Akiva Goldsman.

A MEDIA OCTOPUS

            While originating with Sony, the Da Vinci Code’s promotion is a many-pronged attack on Christianity coming from the Jewish media community.

            Sony worked closely with NBC in promotion of NBC/Universal’s anti-Christ Book of Daniel last winter. Now NBC, presided over by its Jewish head of television programming, Jeff Zukor, has lavishly promoted Sony’s Da Vinci Code movie on NBC. This past week, Today Show host Matt Lauer led the nation on a European “treasure hunt” in the steps of the Code. CBS, presided over by Jewish Sumner Redstone, and ABC, by Jewish Michael Eisner, have helped build a firestorm of public curiosity about the book and movie.

MEGA BOOK SALES

            The largest Jewish publishing houses reap staggering profits from sales of Da Vinci Code books. Jewish Joel Klein is chairman of American operations of Bertelsmann A.G., the largest publishing conglomerate in the world. Random House, which the Encyclopedia Judaica confirms is Jewish-owned and controlled, is part of this consortium, benefiting by massive distribution advantages. 4 Random House owns rights to produce all large-print copies of the Da Vinci Code. As a division of Random House, Doubleday owns rights to produce all regular-print and special collector’s editions of the book. Finally, Anchor Books, another venerable Jewish publishing house and subsidiary of Random House completes this Jewish monopoly by printing all paperback copies.

            Jewish-controlled magazines also hype the Code. Some 50 popular magazines, including Time, Life, and People, are owned by Time/Warner, with Jewish Norman Pearlstein, editor in chief. Newsweek, published by Jewish Donald Graham’s Washington Post, has featured recent conspicuous articles enticing millions to purchase the book or see the movie.

            Articles too numerous to mention continue to emerge from Jewish-controlled newspapers. These include those owned by the Samuel Newhouse chain, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the New York Review of Books, the Village Voice, etc. All have been intensifying interest in the Da Vinci Code’s blasphemous message. The New York Times praised the book as "impeccably researched," despite the Code's outrageous claims, including that the Roman Catholic Church burned five million women at the stake. These media voices, which reflected so gravely on possible anti-Semitism in Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, have not a word of concern about the Code's rabid anti-Christianity. That's because they share it.

ATTACKS ON CHRIST CONVERGE

            In a previous e-alert, I documented how Jews helped the National Geographic Society to bring the "Gospel of Judas" blasphemy to the attention of the world (See, "Judas: Historic Jewish Hero"). I revealed how NGS’ prestigious Codex advisory panel, the driving force behind promotion of this sacrilege, is top heavy with Jewish names.

            Such fevered Christ-bashing continues a pattern of stepped-up attacks by Jewish activists over the past six months:

    • Last November, Abe Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, attacked politically involved Christian conservatives as a threat to freedom. He vilified the Southern Baptist Convention for allowing witnessing to Jews. In his recent book, Never Again? The Threat of the New Anti-Semitism, he accused Christians who witnessed to Jews of being anti-Semitic. The New Testament, he rails, is a lying, hateful, hurtful book, ultimately responsible for the deaths of 6 million Jews in World War II. (See, "ADL's Foxman: New Testament is Anti-Semitic")
       
    • Last December, in CBS’ 48 Hours special, “The Mystery of Christmas,” CBS dramatized the possibility that Christ was a bastard. (See, "More Christian Bashing from Media this Easter?")
       
    • This winter, NBC’s Book of Daniel, authorized by Jeff Zukor, trashed Jesus and the Christian family. (See, "Who's Behind NBC's 'Book of Daniel'?")
       
    • Also this winter, Jewish activist Mikey Weinstein was successful in his suit against the Air Force Academy, banning chaplains there from using the name of Jesus in public prayers. He was assisted by Rabbi Arnold Resnicoff, highly placed ethical consultant to both the Navy and Air Force, in upholding such an end of free speech. (See, "ADL Protests Free Speech at Air Force Academy")

EVANGELICALS WON’T IDENTIFY THEIR ENEMY

            One would think evangelical leaders, clearly under attack by Jewish activists in high places, would at least inform Christians of the identity of those who assail them and their Savior.

            This is not the case. Evangelical and new-right leaders are silent concerning the Jewish origins of present attacks on free speech, Christian witnessing, the New Testament, and the integrity of Jesus Christ.

            Why this incredible silence? Evangelicals won't identify their attackers as Jewish because of a centuries-old superstition. They believe a divine curse will fall on any person or nation who criticizes Jews. The Biblical promise to Abraham, “I will bless those that bless thee and I will curse them that curse thee,” (Genesis 12:3) is taken to mean that no matter what evil or injustice Jews commit, Christians must only bless them, never criticize.

            This is flatly contrary to Scripture.

            The Bible teaches that godly reproof and warning are not curses but the greatest gifts that can be given to any sinner. Reproof brings with it the possibility of repentance, saving a soul from an eternity in hell!

            It was with such a desire to bless Jews, that the Hebrew prophets, including Isaiah and John the Baptist, fiercely reproved the Jewish people and their leaders for sin. Does the Bible consider such fearless truth-telling to be anti-Semitic? Does it record terrible curses descending upon such prophets?

            Quite the contrary, God’s curses did descend on those false prophets who flattered the Jews, exactly as do modern-day evangelicals. In the time of Elijah, compromising prophets cooed unconditional blessings on Ahab and Jezebel. Today Jerry Falwell, John Hagee, and Hal Lindsey lavish blessings on the vilest of Jewish sinners including arrogant, violent men like Shamir, Begin and Sharon.

A CULT OF ISRAEL-WORSHIP

            Christ’s followers 2,000 years ago viewed His crucifixion from afar. They were impotent to restrain evil Jewish leaders who had Him killed. Today, evangelicals are paralyzed from really striking a blow against those who now publicly re-crucify the name and reputation of Jesus. Yes, they write letters and emails and perhaps boycott TV sponsors. Their intellectuals argue against the fallacies of the Da Vinci Code. But no one points a prophetic, bony finger at the Jewish media moguls, identifying their racial and religious origin. No one says like Nathan to the adulterous David, “You are the man!” (2 Sam. 12:7)

            Incredibly as Jewish anti-Christ activism surrounds and overlays Christianity, the silence within the Church only becomes more deafening. About all that can be said then, is that when "Israel first" leaders and their flocks are at last herded into gulags to be slaughtered, few groups of people in history will have worked harder to ensure their own destruction.

(Note from David:  This is a note I sent to a friend who was unforgiving towards me because I would not agree with their unforgiveness towards the Jews for the above reasons.) 

 

Remember Mt.18 concerning the King forgiving his servant who would not forgive his fellow servant and the dire warning in verse 34 of being turned over to the tormentors for being in this state of unforgiveness.  I went to bed praying for you last night and woke up praying for you early this morning.  I have been having many very vivid trance type visions in the morning for some time. I get totally caught up in them, not knowing the difference between them and reality.  This morning I saw myself in my house.  I felt a pain in my hand and looked at it in shock.  My little finger on the right hand had been pulled out by the roots.  There was just a hole there and a little blood.  The two fingers next to it were stiff and sore.   I said, "How could that have happened" and began looking for the finger but never found it.  I remember wondering if I had enough faith for God to restore my finger.  It was so real that when I came out of the vision I immediately felt my hand and to my relief my finger was there and fine.  Obviously my house represented our ministries portion of the Lord's house.  My finger was one of the members of my body.  I am sure it was you.  I am doing my best to exercise my faith to have you restored.  Pray for me.  Failure in this is more disastrous than you think.  Fingers don’t live long separated from the body.
