Since joining with my Jewish brethren, and Israel in understanding "HOW" the Scriptures are sharing the past, present, and future of Israel I have come to understand better, "Repeating Patterns" and the cyclical nature found in Hebrew thought. Equally important is how the scriptures are connected to what GOD is doing with and through Israel for the benefit of all of mankind; with this in mind my reality is quite amazing. I get to watch with baited breath, the restoration of the Kingdom of Israel as the days proceed. I get to watch what God is doing towards this end.
I also get to witness the hellish persecution of the Jewish people on a global scale as men or the kingdoms of men rebel against the nature of God and his purposes. This too is a cyclical pattern. I have written several times a relative comparison between the United States of America and Germany insofar as both were/are considered preeminent "Christian Nations"
The ability of Germany to mechanism a war machine capable of projecting itself throughout Europe with stunning speed was for the Jewish people and millions of lives a tragedy still reverberating in the soul of mankind. The church largely did nothing as a preeminent Protestant/Catholic religion (and you all know how I feel about religion!)
"The vast majority of Germans still identified as Christians (according to the 1933 census, 52 per cent Protestant and 33 per cent Catholic)"
Our current generation of youth for the most part is clueless of this history.
America became a "Super Power" under the Throne of Heaven [Under not above] Rome was divided too...(and so was Ancient Israel)
I have been watching for nearly 20 years a steady antisemitic attitude growing against the Jewish community within America. Many of the college campuses across the spectrum have no concept whatsoever about "Loving your neighbor" or " Do unto others as you would want done to you!" Surprising me the most is the American Black who benefited tremendously during the life of Dr Martin Luther King Jr as a direct result of much of the Jewish community's (Not all to be sure) support during the struggle for civil rights. To have the 1st Black President of America show steady disdain for Israel nearing 8 years and running is a stunning turnabout, perhaps even the pinnacle of change!
America is socially divided, becoming more and more economically divided (with the financial onslaught against the so called middle class in full swing.) The church as a whole is muted, dare I say duct taped shut with no voice at all and racial division under Barrack Obama stoked like a fire being started. Many in the church world still exclaim (with conviction of the heart) the 2000 year old lie, "The Jews killed Jesus!" Trust me on this, I hear this probably five or six times in a month. We are watching similar lies watered on the college campus' All having to do with deligitimizing Jews...
Golly, gee, wiz, Beav, that's what Hitler did too!
If you don't think America is headed for a judgement due to its treatment of the Jewish population, the immorality and the decadence that was similar to the very thing that brought Hitler to power it is most likely because you are a college student welcoming Islam into your society!
GERMANY WELCOMED THE THIRD REICH
Like I said above, I am watching what God is doing with and through Israel.
