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
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!
