An ever increasing number of attacks on Jews around the world, including the attack on a Jewish school in southern France, has put fear in the hearts of Jewish people living in what would be considered a civilized world, a fear for their lives and the lives of their families as antisemitism continues to grow globally.
A recent survey of people in ten European nations reveals that 30% of Europeans have antisemitic beliefs and still believe that Jews are responsible for the death of Jesus Christ, the main motivation for antisemitism. An additional factor in the increase of European antisemitism is the ever growing population of Muslims around the world but especially all across the European continent, a factor that results from the Islamic beliefs that Jews should be removed from the earth.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Growing antisemitism around the world and especially in Europe is evidence that the scenario found in Bible prophecy is moving ever so close to the fulfillment of these prophecies for the end times.
A number of violent attacks on Jews around the world and the attack by a radical Muslim on a Jewish school in France is tangible evidence that the rise in antisemitism in our world is becoming a major threat to the Jewish people today. A recent survey among ten European nations indicated that the belief that Jews were responsible for the death of Jesus Christ is a major factor in this rise in antisemitism. It is also true that the ever increasing Muslim population in Europe is a factor in antisemitism among the European peoples.
Couple this survey information with the Arab and Muslim world's use of radical rhetoric towards Israel and the Jewish people and the stage is being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled. Several ancient Jewish prophets revealed a time when the world would hate the Jews and want to rid the world of these people. Zechariah wrote 2500 years ago that at that time 2 out of every 3 Jews would be hated and then killed. Evil angels, led by the devil himself, will try and kill every Jew on the earth (Revelation 12:7-17). Jeremiah called this terrible time in the future the "time of Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7). Daniel wrote in 12:1, that the Lord would dispatch Michael the archangel to protect the Jews from complete annihilation.
Antisemitism today will lead to Bible prophecy being fulfilled in a future tomorrow.
