Members of the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, known for its anti-Semitic rhetoric, protested in front of several Jewish institutions in New York City recently and they were carrying signs that read, "God Hates Jews" as they confronted the leaders of these major Jewish organizations. The Anti-Defamation League's director of civil rights, Deborah Lauter, said that the Westboro Baptist Church is definately, unequivocally anti-Semitic.
A number of Jewish leaders and members of the community in New York City confronted the extremist demonstrators and said though they value the freedom of speech, they must stand up against bigotry and anti-Semitism.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
Anti-Semitism from whatever source is blasphemy against God and will set the stage for the end times scenario found in Bible prophecy for the Jewish people in the last days.
I reported that extremist Christians say that God hates Jews but I must hasten to say that I would find it hard to believe that any true born again Bible believing Christian would ever be able to utter those words of God hating the Jews. One who believes in God's word as found in Deuteronomy 7:6-8 would be compelled to believe what the Lord said about the Jews - that they are His chosen people (verse 6) and that He chose them because He loved them (verse 8). I must believe that these so-called extremist Christians are indeed extremist but not Christians according to the Biblical defination of "Christian".
This report is evidence of how it will be during the seven years of judgment for the Jewish people referred to as the Tribulation. During the Time of Jacob's Trouble, as this time is talked about in Jeremiah 30:7, Jews will be persecuted and killed. Angelic forces from the heavenlies will try to kill all of the Jews on the Earth (Revelation 12:13-17). The Islamic world will move to annihilate the Jews in the Middle East (Ezekiel 38, Daniel 11, Psalm 83, and Joel 2). The ancient Jewish prophet Zechariah says that during this time of judgment soon coming, two out of every three Jews will be killed (Zechariah 13:8).
God loves the Jews and He will send Jesus Christ the Messiah to save them both physically and spiritually. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
