“Eisenhower ordered all available American troops to go and witness the horrors he’d just seen. He also forced German citizens and officials from nearby towns to do the same”
“He understood that there must be a record, first-hand evidence and incontrovertible answers to those who would deny the Holocaust.”
General Eisenhower was wise and correct in ordering American troops and German citizens to witness first hand the horror of the death camps let loose by the demonic Adolf Hitler and his NAZI henchmen. The final death toll of just the Jews alone was over 6,000,000 men women and children … and all of them non combatants in World War II.
When we look at the millennial long history of the persecution of the Jews beginning with what Moses described in his ancient writings we see a long standing — and I have no hesitation in describing it as Satanic and Demonic — history of attempts to annihilate the Jew as a people and as a nation, and this includes modern Israel.
Read some of the things Moses had to say of the prophetic history of the Jews:
Dispersion — The Jews were warned repeatedly that they would be dispersed worldwide if they were not faithful to their covenant with God. Consider the words of Moses: “The Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other…” (Deuteronomy 28:64; see also Leviticus 26:33).
Persecution — The Lord also warned the Jews that they would be persecuted wherever they went. Again, the words of Moses are graphic in this regard: “And among those nations you shall find no rest, and there shall be no resting place for the sole of your foot; but there the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing of eyes, and despair of soul” (Deuteronomy 28:65).
Desolation — God promised that after their dispersion, their land would become “desolate” and their cities would become “waste” (Leviticus 26:33). Moses put it more graphically when he said, “the foreigner who comes from a distant land…will say, ‘All its land is brimstone and salt, a burning waste, unsown and unproductive, and no grass grows in it’” (Deuteronomy 29:22-23).
Preservation — But God in His marvelous grace promised He would preserve the Jews as a separate people during their worldwide wanderings. (See Isaiah 66:22; Jeremiah 30:11; 31:35-37.) Isaiah puts it in a colorful way. He says the Lord could no more forget Israel than a mother could forget her nursing child (Isaiah 49:15). He then adds that God cannot forget Israel because He has them tattooed on the palms of His hands! (Isaiah 49:16). –
Regathering — The Old Testament prophets promise repeatedly that the day will come when God will regather the Jews to Palestine (see Isaiah 11:10-12 and Ezekiel 36:22-28). This remarkable regathering of the Jews from the four corners of the earth has occurred in our life time. World War I prepared the land for the people as the control of Palestine was transferred from a nation that hated the Jews (the Turks) to a nation that was sympathetic to their return (Britain). The Holocaust of World War II prepared the people for the land by motivating them to return.
Nationhood — The prophets stated that when the people were regathered, the nation of Israel would be re-established. This occurred on May 14, 1948 (see Isaiah 66:7-8; Zechariah 12:3-6). This is the cornerstone prophetic event of our age. It is an event that prophetic scholars have pointed to for 400 years amid much scoffing and ridicule by those who did not believe that Israel would ever exist again as a nation.
Reclamation — God promised that with the re-establishment of the nation, the land would bloom again (Isaiah 35:1-7; Joel 2:21-26). As Ezekiel put it, people would one day exclaim: “This desolate land has become like the garden of Eden!” (Ezekiel 36:35). And that is exactly what people exclaim today when they visit Israel, for it is once again a land of milk and honey. Over 300 million trees have been planted in this century. Rainfall has increased 450 percent. The former malaria infested swamps have been converted into cultivated land. Water from the Sea of Galilee has been channeled to the deserts, causing them to bloom.
Language — When the Jews were scattered worldwide in the first century, they ceased speaking the Hebrew language. The Jews who settled in Europe developed a language called Yiddish (a combination of Hebrew and German). The Jews in the Mediterranean basin mixed Hebrew with Spanish to produce a language called Ladino. The prophet Zephaniah implied a time would come when the Hebrew language would be revived (Zephaniah 3:9). It has been. Today the Israelis speak Biblical Hebrew. It is the only example in history of the resurrection of a dead language. The man God used to revive the language was Eliezer Ben Yehuda (1858-1922).
Jerusalem — Jesus said that one of the surest signs of His imminent return would be the re-occupation of Jerusalem by the Jews (Luke 21:24). This occurred during the Six Day War in June 1967.
Military Strength — Zechariah prophesied that when the Jews were re-established in the land, their military strength would be overwhelming — like “a flaming torch among sheaves” — and that they would “consume” all the peoples around them (Zechariah 12:6). Need anything be said about the fulfillment of this prophecy?
Focal Point — Israel is always pictured as the focal point of world politics in the end times (Zechariah 12:3; 14:1-9). This has been true since the Arab oil boycott in 1973. The West suddenly realized its dependence on Arab oil and began to line up behind the Arab obsession to annihilate Israel.
Tribulation — God will put the Jewish people through an unparalleled period of tribulation (Deuteronomy 4:30), during which two-thirds of the Jews will perish (Zechariah 13:8-9). The purpose will be to soften the hearts of a remnant so that they will accept Jesus as their Messiah.
Salvation — A remnant of the Jews will “look upon Him whom they have pierced” and will accept Him as Lord and Savior (Zechariah 12:10; Romans 11:1-6,25-29). 3) Primacy — God will then regather all the believing Jews to Israel where they will be established as the prime nation in the world during the millennial reign of Jesus. (See Deuteronomy 28:1,13; 2 Samuel 7:9; Isaiah 60-62; Micah 4:1-7.)
And finally, consider this prophesy about the city of Damascus Syria:
“This message came to me concerning Damascus: ‘Look, Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted. Sheep will graze in the streets and lie down unafraid. There will be no one to chase them away. The fortified cities of Israel will also be destroyed, and the power of Damascus will end. The few left in Aram will share the fate of Israel’s departed glory,’ says the Lord Almighty” (Isaiah 17:1-3, NLT).
It is said that Damascus is the oldest continuously populated city in the world, and yet Isaiah seems to be saying that it will be totally destroyed … and that destruction will occur virtually overnight.
Moving to modern times, during World War II the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the uncle of Yasser Arafat, spent much time in Berlin plotting and planning how to exterminate the Jews then living in Palestine.
And consider the many wars of annihilation brought against the nation Israel beginning with the first such war at the very beginning of the new nation of Israel in 1948.
Given this unbroken record of attempted genocide against the Jews beginning thousands of years ago and continuing to modern times, now look at the direct threats of Annihilation of Israel and the Jews by Iranian leaders going back to the Iranian Revolution of 1979.
Is the so called “nuclear deal” agreed to recently yet another thinly veiled attempt at the annihilation of an entire people, the Jews, and the nation Israel?
Are Barak Obama, John Kerry and others in the Obama administration complicit in attempted genocide?
Are the other nations of the “5 + 1” China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; plus Germany … complicit in attempted genocide?
Are the citizens of these nations – you and I — complicit in attempted genocide?
Since the leaders of these “5 + 1”nations represent the official position of these nations to the world, I would argue that you and I are complicit in attempted genocide.
Tough words ladies and gentlemen … and tougher times to come.
There may or may not be much we can do as individuals to change this possible and probable future outcome, but as individuals we can get right before God by seeking Him and his grace. I urge you to do so today.
The “nuclear deal” is a gamble. A gamble on the lives of millions of people, and a gamble on the very existence of a sovereign nation and ally … Israel.
What gives these leaders the right to gamble with such high stakes? And what gives these leaders the right to this gamble given that the dice appear to be heavily loaded in favor of those whose oft stated intent is to annihilate a nation and an entire people?
Are they naïve? Are they incompetent? Are they misguided?
. . . or . . .
Are they complicit and in fact allied with an enemy?
