Judaism

True faith in God = support for Israel


The bride of God is how Israel is described. The bride of Jesus is how Christianity is described.
The other day I had an encounter with an agnostic Jew.
This person was under the impression, self-imposed, that I was trying to convert them to Christianity.
First off, I wish to make an important understanding. If God allows a Jewish person to see the truth and in so doing they become a Messianic Jew that is a cause for joy and celebration, but at this time it is not something that is required of the Jewish people.
Their time for realization will come when it is time for them to see and even then not all will see.
This person I was talking to was proud that they had left their belief in God, which is sad to say at the least, but it is typical of today’s atmosphere, especially in academic circles.
Here is one thing that they themselves can realize just by saying they are “Jewish.” No other culture has existed for as long as those that are the descendants of Jacob. They, for the most part can trace their ancestors to this son of Abraham who lived in the 900s BC. This is six to seven hundred years before the formation of the Chinese empire. That is a culture that has existed for approximately three thousand years. No other culture has existed as long.
This one mere fact shows that there is a God. Yet this is not enough for most to accept or even think upon this simplest of facts.
Yes they lost their nation, but they have lost it more than once and still came out of it as one culture with one core language. Many Catholics do not even know Latin. There are three dialects in China. Yet Judaism knows languages throughout the world, but at their base most know Hebrew.
So armed with this mere fact and what is taught of the nation of Israel within the Bible those that truly profess Christianity must be with and support Israel. For not to stand beside them is not to acknowledge God, which anyone that claims to be a Christian could not do. If they can then they need to re-examine their beliefs and the Bible.

The Blindness of humans


Due to the corrupt nature of humans, most cannot accept, that there was ever a being that could perform miracles, like causing the lame to walk or even a man blind since birth the ability to see. Jesus through His sacrifice upon the cross gave us the ability to overcome our base nature. Yet there are many that say humans can overcome themselves. Just listen to that sentence in your head. How can someone defeat himself or herself? It is impossible.
Yet through Christ with His sacrifice, humans can overcome their base nature. It is through this salvation that the world of humans still exists. For without Christianity and Judaism humans base nature would have destroyed itself most likely during the dark ages. It was believe in God and the teachings of Jesus that the humans still walk this earth today.
Nonetheless, again a time of corruption rears its head. Once again, the human race is threatened by itself. They force God from the world and chaos has erupted in its place. However, there are those in the “wilderness” shouting out and saying, “Turn to the light of Christ!”
Mark 7: 20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
