Why are the nations raging against Israel? Why have the Jewish people suffered the things they suffered for so many years? What is behind the very strange phenomenon we call “Anti-Semitism”? This thesis will show what I and some others believe, is an attempt to prevent the coming of the Messianic Kingdom by destroying the nation and people who will usher in this Kingdom of Peace, and thus end the oppressive kingdoms ruled by the Gentiles. Some of these leaders may very well be aware of this, which may explain their unjustified hostility towards Israel today and their quest to dissolve her. Yes, I believe that some elite leaders at the top, have conscientiously allied with evil spiritual forces, whose sole objective is to prevent the establishment of God’s Chosen Messianic Kingdom.
Over 4000 years ago, God told the Patriarch Abraham, “in you all the nations of the earth will be blessed”. Not only was this about the future Redeemer the Christ, but also concerns God’s Messianic Kingdom where all nations will finally live in peace and prosperity that endures forever. God’s predicted Kingdom is a refuge for the oppressed, and “the meek of the earth” in contrast with the kingdoms of the world with horrible records of oppressing their poor and lowly classes. So to give us a glimpse of this promise, He chose a small and weak people and pitted them against the powerful oppressors of the Gentile world as Moses told the Israelis in Deut. 7:7:
“The LORD did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples.”
The Hebrews were not chosen because they were superior, but because they were small and weak, because as God told Saint Paul: “”My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Cor. 12:9…hence the many victories of both ancient and modern Israelis over enemies hugely more powerful than they. This all started with the Hebrew slaves freeing themselves from their powerful oppressors the Egyptians, overthrowing the evil kingdoms of the Nephilim and their allied Canaanite tribes in the land of Canaan. With the establishment of the Hebrew Kingdom, the authorship of the most anti-oppressive Holy Book and Laws came into existence, that produced a natural conflict with the Hebrews and the oppressing elites of the Gentile world. Sort of like when Cuba sought to free itself from US elites during the Cuban Revolution, with the US Elites fearing the “spread of this cancer” in the Latin American world, fearing that such desire for liberation would infect the oppressed in those areas (and elsewhere).
Yes, the Hebrew nation itself and it’s struggles is the story of the ultimate resistance against the ruling elites of the Gentile world. Even the establishment of the modern Israeli state, is of this story. For the Jews spent almost 2000 years living under persecution that ultimately lead to the murder of 6 million of them. The modern Jewish state arose only three years after the Nazi Holocaust, and was primarily established to provide refuge for an unwanted people, a state currently threatened by the whole Gentile world. And just as the Hebrew slaves finally conquered their oppressors and enemies of ancient times under Joshua (for whom Jesus is named), and David (Jesus’ ancestor), the modern Israeli nation will finally defeat all it’s enemies with the aid of the returning Messiah. This prediction is found in the book of Isaiah and others:
“But as for you, Israel my servant,
Jacob my chosen one,
descended from Abraham my friend,
I have called you back from the ends of the earth,
saying, ‘You are my servant.’
For I have chosen you…
“See, all your angry enemies lie there,
confused and humiliated.
Anyone who opposes you will die
and come to nothing.
You will look in vain
for those who tried to conquer you….
‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you.
14 Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob,
don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you.
I am the Lord, your Redeemer.
I am the Holy One of Israel.’
You will be a new threshing instrument
with many sharp teeth.
You will tear your enemies apart,
making chaff of mountains.
16 You will toss them into the air,
and the wind will blow them all away;
a whirlwind will scatter them.
Then you will rejoice in the Lord.
You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.
Israel is the ultimate resistance movement, indeed the very first. The first, because unlike the Pagan resistance movements of the ancient past and even today, the Hebrew Resistance Movement was not an “Animal Farm” resistance, where the intent was to replace one oppressive kingdom with another, such as what was observed in the Communist movements of Russia ,Cuba, and the Islamic resistance movements of Egypt and the soon to be Sharia state of Libya. Their movement was pure, producing the most poor-friendly state of the past and even today in all the Middle-East. Their state was established on laws given to them by the leader of their resistance movement, Moses, which are anti-oppression:
““You shall not wrong a foreigner or oppress him, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. If you do mistreat them, and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry, and my wrath will burn, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall become widows and your children fatherless.”
“The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.”
“Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the Lord; “I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”
“Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.”
“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.”
“Then I will draw near to you for judgment. I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired worker in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, against those who thrust aside the sojourner, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.”
“Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand. They covet fields and seize them, and houses, and take them away; they oppress a man and his house, a man and his inheritance. Therefore thus says the Lord: behold, against this family I am devising disaster, from which you cannot remove your necks, and you shall not walk haughtily, for it will be a time of disaster.”
Of course there were times when the Israelis allowed Pagan influence to alter the character of their state, preventing the perfection thereof. On the cultural side of the war, the Israelis fell into worshiping the Canaanite gods, introducing laws and practices that were pro-oppression and immoral:
““‘For Israel has forsaken me and turned this valley into a place of wickedness. The people burn incense to foreign gods—idols never before acknowledged by this generation, by their ancestors, or by the kings of Judah. And they have filled this place with the blood of innocent children. 5 They have built pagan shrines to Baal, and there they burn their sons as sacrifices to Baal. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing!” Jere. 19
And the Lord says, “What sorrow awaits Jehoiakim, who builds his palace with forced labor…
But a beautiful cedar palace does not make a great king!
Your father, Josiah, also had plenty to eat and drink.
But he was just and right in all his dealings.
That is why God blessed him.
16 He gave justice and help to the poor and needy,
and everything went well for him.
Isn’t that what it means to know me?”
says the Lord.
“But you! You have eyes only for greed and dishonesty!
You murder the innocent,
oppress the poor, and reign ruthlessly.” Jere. 22
When the Cultural War failed to destroy the Hebrews, the nations sought to destroy them, to put an end to this state built by former slaves…a symbol of Liberation in the midst of a sea of oppressive regimes. That war continues in our own time and the real motivation is the prevention of the Jewish Messianic Kingdom. The coming Messiah of the Jews as depicted in their Holy Book, is a widely known prediction of a Divine King who will end tyranny on a global scale. Make no mistake, there are elites allied with some very dark forces, who are working behind the scenes to make sure this doesn’t happen. This King will come from the Jewish tribe, who inherits the Throne of David ruling via Jerusalem over the entire world. He will set up kings in the Gentile world who are subject to Him, and who opposes oppression just as He. The existence of Israel today, after all they have endured and countless attempts to eliminate them have caused many elites to have something to fear about…there must be indeed some Divine Power assisting the Hebrews, and this kingdom is a sign that “the times of the Gentiles” are almost up.
“For a child is born to us [Israel],
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 His government and its peace
will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.” Isaiah 9
“In the end, the enemies of Jerusalem who survive the plague will go up to Jerusalem each year to worship the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, and to celebrate the Festival of Shelters. 17 Any nation in the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, will have no rain.” Zechariah 14
In the Book of Revelation, we see the Elites allied with Satan and his angels, warring against the Messiah…the Ultimate response of the Elites to the Resistance Movement:
“And I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs leap from the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and the false prophet. 14 They are demonic spirits who work miracles and go out to all the rulers of the world to gather them for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God the Almighty…And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.” Rev. 16
These spirits gathers the elites of the world to Megiddo for two purposes. 1. To destroy the Israeli Resistance Movement. 2. To fight against the returning Messiah who returns to defend the Israeli Resistance and all those who trust in Him. This can be proved by examining the writings of the Prophets from which Revelations depends on:
“I will gather all the nations to fight against Jerusalem. The city will be taken, the houses looted, and the women raped. Half the population will be taken into captivity, and the rest will be left among the ruins of the city.
*3 Then the Lord will go out to fight against those nations, as he has fought in times past. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem…**the Lord my God will come, and all his holy ones with him**.” Zech. 14
In this final clash between the Hebrew Resistance Movement, and the Gentile world, the wrath of the Gentiles will be in full bloom. Here the prophet foresee them raping Hebrew women, ruining the Holy City, and taking many Hebrews into captivity…another forced exile. In this period, the gloves will come off and the true agenda of the “Peace Plan” between the Israelis and the Gentiles, who seek to deny them their inheritance will be made crystal clear. Jesus in Luke 21, which is often misinterpreted as a prediction of the AD. 70 destruction of Jerusalem, repeats this prophetic conclusion:
“And when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then you will know that the time of its destruction has arrived. 21 Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. Those in Jerusalem must get out, and those out in the country should not return to the city. 22 For those will be days of God’s vengeance, and [all] the prophetic words of the Scriptures will be fulfilled.
How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days. For there will be disaster in the land and great anger against this people. 24 They will be killed by the sword or sent away as captives to all the nations of the world. And Jerusalem will be trampled down by the Gentiles until the period of the Gentiles comes to an end…Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory…So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!”
This message was primarily for end time Israel, both a warning and promise of final deliverance from their Gentile persecutors. In fact this deliverance will be initiated by the acceptance of Israel of her true Messiah as Jesus clearly alludes to in another message:
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me. 35 And now, look, your house is abandoned. And you will never see me again until you say, ‘Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Jesus was alluding to the announcement of Him being the King of Israel:
The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A large crowd of Passover visitors 13 took palm branches and went down the road to meet him. They shouted,
“Praise God! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hail to the King of Israel!”. Jesus found a young donkey and rode on it, fulfilling the prophecy that said:
“Don’t be afraid, people of Jerusalem.Look, your King is coming,
riding on a donkey’s colt.” John 12
When all of Israel accepts Yeshua as their promised King, God will deliver National Israel, and thus the whole world. So you see, National Israel is central to the establishment of the Messianic Kingdom which is why she is hated by all the tyrants of the world and the spiritual realm. Unfortunately, this will only occur during the worst persecution the Israelis will ever have endured according to both the OT and NT Jewish Apostles and Prophets.
Joel 3 also details this final end:
“At the time of those events,” says the Lord,
when I restore the prosperity of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather the armies of the world
nto the valley of Jehoshaphat [Megiddo].
There I will judge them for harming my people, my special possession [Israel],
or scattering my people among the nations,
and for dividing up my land.”
Part 2 of this thesis will arrive shortly.
