Anti-Semitism is on the rise

The world is turning against the Jews. Here are are but a few stories which illustrate this unfortunate fact:

Facebook’s Holocaust Problem
The social-networking giant bans hate speech—but allows the proliferation of Holocaust-denial pages, saying it recognizes ‘people’s right to be factually wrong about historical events.’
For years, international organizations opposing anti-Semitism have been urging the planet’s preeminent social-networking platform to delete any content that asserts the Nazi-orchestrated extermination of 6 million Jews never took place. And for years, officials of Facebook, boasting more than 750 million active users, have refused, insisting that mere denial of the Holocaust, however “repugnant and ignorant,” doesn’t constitute “hate speech” as defined by Facebook’s Terms of Service policy prohibiting “content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence.”

Seven killed in series of terrorist attacks in southern Israel
“Seven people were killed and at least 26 people were wounded Thursday in a series of terrorist attacks on Israeli targets approximately 20 kilometers north of the southern city of Eilat, close to the border with Egypt.”

Gaza Under Attack Again
“Gaza is tonight under attack by Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) following a series of attacks today on Israeli military targets 20 km north of the southern city of Eilat, close to the border with Egypt. Hamas has denied responsibility for this afternoon’s attacks, which killed seven and injured at least 14, saying their strategy is to resist “the occupation of Palestinian lands from within, rather than from outside.” Despite the attacks coming from within Israeli territory and from the Egyptian border, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately stated they hold Hamas responsible, and would retaliate with “full force.” So far this evening, at least six Palestinians have been killed in the southern Gaza town of Rafah by IDF attacks on a house reportedly belonging to Popular Resistance Committees official Khaled Shaath, whose daughter was injured. IDF has been dropping leaflets over Rafah threatening Palestinians, as it did prior to launching Operation Cast Lead in December 2008.”

Things are NOT going to get better for Israel. They are getting a lot worse.

Deuteronomy 4:30 reminds the Jews that in the latter days they will experience distress, but there is hope of redemption after that:
“But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30 When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the LORD your God and obey His voice 31 (for the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”

Jeremiah 30:7 reminds them that they will endure a time of trouble:
“Alas! For that day is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.”

Zechariah 12:2-3 reminds them that Jerusalem will be the center of controversy and distress from the entire world:
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

In Matthew 24:21-22, Jesus tells the disciples that the Jews will endure such Tribulation that it will not be as bad as anything that has ever happened since the beginning of the world. It sill be such a bad tie that unless Jesus cut short the days, nobody would survive. No one.

Revelation 6-19 are chapters that describe in horrific detail all the things that are promised to happen to the Jews under God’s purification program.

It is obvious that Anti-Semitism is rapidly on the rise. We know from the above verses that the hatred of the Jews by the world will only continue to increase. Please pray for the beloved People. The reason for His attention in this manner is to give them hope. Yes, hope.

The Lord is purifying His people. They (and we, the pagans and Gentiles) are stiff-necked sinners, worshiping idols and refusing the fact that Messiah has come. But He is going to work them, the clay, as He is the potter, until they are purified from unrighteousness and able to come into the promises that He has set before them since the foundation of the world. Like this promise from Isaiah:

Isaiah 55:12– “You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”

Psalm 105:43 He brought out his people with rejoicing, his chosen ones with shouts of joy

There will be shouts of joy. But between now and then there will be shouts of misery. However, any Jew, Pagan, or Gentile, any person at all, can avoid all that. If you repent and ask Jesus to forgive your sins against Him, He will. His work with you as clay will be of a different type, gentle, loving, not wrathful. Please consider it, and soon.
