Listen to Today's Program
Speaking at a large gathering of Christians, meeting to show their support for the state of Israel and the Israeli government, the radio and television personality Glenn Beck told the audience that "when we see Jews being persecuted we must see Jews as us - let us declare that we're Jews, the Jewish enemies cannot kill all of us." Beck told the gathering that there is one message; "Israel today, Israel tomorrow, and Israel forever."
This annual gathering of what is called Christian Zionist also heard the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu say that the enemies of the Jewish state are the enemies of Christians as well.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
A so-called Christian leader making the statement that he is a Jew in order to protect the Jewish people may be honorable but it is not Biblically correct and it does cloud the issue of Bible prophecy.
Radio and television personality Glenn Beck told a gathering of Christians who stand with the Jewish state of Israel against the world that he wants people to call him a Jew in order to protect the Jewish people. Beck's thought was that if we're all Jewish then the enemies of the Jewish people cannot kill all of us and must rethink their strategy. This is excellent rhetoric especially to a group of Christian Zionists however, it is not Biblically correct.
When I say that it is not Biblically correct, I'm not trying to be picky. It does matter what the Bible says about these issues. There is a difference in God's plan for the Jewish people and Christians and we must recognize that plan from the scriptures. Christians must protect the Jewish people (Genesis 12:3) but we must not stand with the secular humanistic Israeli government. No human government is or will ever do all that the Lord wants them to do. However, God does use these governments to accomplish His will (Revelation 17:17). The Jewish people will be protected not by humankind or human governments but by the Lord's intervention (Ezekiel 38:18 - 39:6) and there will even be angelic protection as well (Daniel 12:1). As Christians, we have a responsibility to the Jewish people to present to them the truth of the Jewish Messiah Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16).
God's plan and protection for the Jewish people will be played out. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
