Crazy people put down
the Jewish people.Genesis 12:3, And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (God speaking to Abraham, father of the Jewish people)
People are crazy. A lot of the articles that I write are the direct result of a bunch of people writing me about the same subject. In this case, the subject is the Jewish people. A man kept writing me about some racist tract against the Jewish people. It said that all the world's problems are because of Jewish people. That's unbiblical right there because the Bible says that we don't war against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places. The writer also told me that God no longer deals with physical Israel which is a lie.
Yes, many Israelites (Jewish people) have stumbled at the stumblingblock, Jesus Christ. He is not what they expected. Nevertheless the Jewish people are not utterly cast down! Their fall allowed us Gentiles to come into a relationship with the true God. For thousands of years we were willingly outside the promises servin' trees and moons and suns and evil spirits. We need to be thankful for the Jewish people, custodians of God's word for centuries on end. Our Bible, both Old and New Testaments, was written down by Jewish men. The nation of Israel has not stumbled never to rise again.Romans 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
All racists against the Jews need to read Romans to get some learning. It is true that unconverted Jews need to get saved just like anybody else. They will not go to heaven without repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. It is not true however, that God has cast away physical Israel. Paul says so--Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 11:2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew...
Romans 11:12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; HOW MUCH MORE THEIR FULNESS?
Gentiles need to stop boasting themselves against Israel. The Bible says that Israelites are the NATURAL branch and we Gentiles are the WILD branch.Romans 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
One of our teenaged readers wrote here a couple of months ago saying he just found out that he is really Jewish and gave me a url. It was ridiculous. It claimed that straight up white Europeans are the real Jews, and that the descendants of Israel are not. Just today, 7-27-98 I got an e-mail from a ridiculous individual who said that Jesus was not Jewish. THAT was the icing that frosted my cake and so I wrote this short treatise. People need to wake up. They will twist and wrest with the scriptures to their own destruction. The scriptures say that they that worship the God must worship Him in spirit and in TRUTH. God don't accept no lies. NO LIES. Racists better get a clue before it is everlastin' too late!
The Watch Unto Prayer website gives a good overview of the belief that Anglo-Saxons are the true Jews:
[This] false doctrine of British-Israelism...propagates a variety of fictitious narratives intended to prove that the promises given to Israel in Scripture will be fulfilled in Britain, America, and other Anglo-Saxon countries. One version identifies the Anglo-Saxon race with the ten lost tribes of Israel which supposedly migrated to the British Isles following the Assyrian Captivity. According to other accounts which are presented in Holy Blood, Holy Grail and Bloodline of the Holy Grail, Jesus married Mary Magdalene and fathered children. After the crucifixion, Joseph of Arimethea took Mary and the children of Jesus to Europe. Needless to say, Scripture supports neither of these nor any other versions of the British-Israel doctrine.
"Hebrew Roots" of Christianity doctrine - a form of British-Israelism which claims that the Anglo-Saxon nations are the lost 12 tribes of Israel.
