Christians Should Tell Jews about Jesus and any Jew Without Jesus Will Go to Hell Like Anyone Else Without Him.

Our sister in Christ and fellow blogger La Shawn Barber has written an article for the publication The Jerusalem Connection. It is a very good read and I was interviewed by La Shawn for the write-up.

As I’ve said before, Romans 11 makes it clear, that a final remnant of all Hebrew blood will embrace Jesus Christ as Lord, but all who reject Christ including Jews who reject Him now will all suffer eternal damnation. It does not matter if someone is a Jew, Barbarian or whatever. Reject Christ and upon your physical death your fate is condemnation. As Jesus told the Jewish ruler Nicodemus face to face in John 3.

On a more controversial note:

That is, if what I’ve already said is not controversial enough. I must also mention the following, because it is very significant and relevant. And it’s best to cover things regarding the nation of Israel in full.

While in 1948 Israel was restored as an independent nation. Does that mean Israel will never again suffer loss of that land till Christ’s return? It is possible, however there is one frightful thought to consider. Matthew 24:1-2, Mark 13:1-2 and Luke 21:5-6 all specifically record a jarring statement from the Lord Jesus:

…there will not be left one stone upon another which will not be torn down.

And Jesus explained why in Luke 19:41-44.

While I feel it is good for the USA to be allies with the nation of Israel and I feel if any enemy of Israel dares attack, that the USA should militarily offer assistance to Israel. Assistance up to and including turning said enemy (or enemies) to glass via nuclear means. I still can’t ignore the words of the Lord. While the nation of Israel was lost in the past, not every single physical stone was toppled. Most were, but some stones remained and still exists today. Was Christ speaking in figurative or fully literally terms when speaking of the stones? Clearly the vast majority of Christians see it as figurative, but if Christ was speaking of those stones in literal terms, it would mean that despite our best efforts, there will on some sad day be a toppling of every literal stone. Yes Israel was destroyed in the past, but in some parts, some stones remained on top of each other. So it is indeed a frightful thought if Jesus means every literal stone. Because as is known if we are honest about it. Some of the old stones still exists, right on top of each other. The Jewish Virtual Library makes note of it. I’m quoting their mention of just one of the sights with old stones below:

Jerusalem – The Old City

The Western Wall

When Rome destroyed the Second Temple in 70 C.E., only one outer wall remained standing. The Romans probably would have destroyed that wall also, but it must have seemed too insignificant to them; it was not even part of the Temple itself, just an outer wall surrounding the Temple Mount. For the Jews, however, this remnant of what was the most sacred building in the Jewish world quickly became the holiest spot in Jewish life. Throughout the centuries, Jews from throughout the world traveled to Palestine, and immediately headed for the Kotel ha-Ma’aravi (the Western Wall) to thank God. The prayers offered at the Kotel were so heartfelt that non-Jews began calling the site the “Wailing Wall.”

A large plaza offers access to the Wall. You may take pictures – except on Shabbat – from outside the fenced enclosure near the Wall. The area is open 24-hours and is especially nice to visit when it is quiet late at night or during holidays and bar-mitzvahs when the area is filled with worshippers.

The area near the Wall is divided by a fence – a mechitza – with a small area for women only on one side and a larger area for men on the other. If you don’t have a yarmulke, a box at the entrance has paper ones to use while you’re near the Wall.

Go right up to the Wall and feel the texture of the stones and take in the awesome size of the structure. The largest stone in the wall is 45 feet long, 15 feet deep, 15 feet high, and weighs more than one million pounds. The Wall is 65 feet (20 meters) high.

I do not desire the nation of Israel suffer any more harm than has already come to it. But if Jesus meant every literal stone 😯 …

The bottom line is that we Christians should evangelize to the world about the message of the Lord Jesus Christ and that INCLUDES ministering to the nation of Israel.

May the Lords will, not my will be done!

    The question is, does John Hagee love Israel enough to repent and tell them the truth–that they are not saved because they’re Jews? We use Galatians 3:28 to convince people that race doesn’t matter as far as those whom God saves. However, it also doesn’t matter when it comes to those who need to know Christ–whether Jew or Greek, Barbarian or Scythian, all need to believe in Christ to be saved.

  2. IndependentConservative Says:

    Regarding the Western Wall, given that wall was not actually part of a temple building and many of the verses regarding “stones” were in reference to the temples/buildings, it’s likely the “…there will not be left one stone upon another which will not be torn down.” prophesy was fulfilled fully in 70AD although the Western/Wailing Wall was not destroyed.
