The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network list. Bottom wanted today.
The assault on Israel and the Jewish people is demonic stage for the line of fire with your host activist all the international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown your voice of moral cultural and spiritual revolution Michael Brown is the director of the coalition of conscience, the president of fire school of ministry get into the line of fire valves by calling 866-34-TRUTH's 866-34-TRUTH Bureau Jacob is Dr. Michael Brown thanks friends for joining us on this through the Jewish Thursday and it cut straight to the to the core of the issues here today on the line of fire will do my best to be spiritual insight into the news of the world that is breaking all around us and is always a lot to take your Jewish related calls Smith has to do with the Jewish Scriptures, the Jewish faith, and it has to do with messianic prophecy or Jewish background to the New Testament.
It has to do with Israel today, 866-34-TRUTH. And remember, if you're new to listening or watching. I welcome calls from those who differ with me. Those who just want more information. Those who agree with me so if you really have an issue with things of same by all means give me a call 866-34-TRUTH 8784 and in a moment give you an opportunity to stand with us in the really important outreach but first let me bottom line things for you. The Jewish people are like everyone else I've said it many times we Jews are like everyone else, except more so, meaning we have strengths and weaknesses like everyone else, and sometimes the strengths are exaggerated. Sometimes the weaknesses are exaggerated, just like everyone else on the planet every group, every ethnicity, every race of use were nice people and not nice people.
The abuser generous and Jews are greedy. You have user atheists and Jews are devout you have all ranges of people among the Jewish people and that means the Jewish person does something wrong, you can differ with that person. If the nation of Israel acts in a way that we feel is unjust or wrong, we can address it.
You're not a Jew hater. If you take issue with particular Israeli policy and you have good reasons for not a Jew hater. If you take issue with particular Jewish person you are a Jew hater. If you brand all Jews as evil.
You are a Jew hater. If you delegitimize Israel because it is Jewish. You are a Jew hater. When you generalize and caricature and speak evil words or have evil thoughts about the people as a people and bottom line is this Satan wants to wipe out the Jewish people is really simple. Satan hates the Jewish people because they have been chosen by God for a mission because God has identified himself with the people of Israel. When the children of Israel were in exile.
God said to the prophet Ezekiel 36 chapter that his name was blasphemed because that is into the prophet Isaiah in the 52nd chapter that his name was blasphemed because his people were in exile and it looked like the God of Israel was powerless in his holy temple in Jerusalem was destroyed and his people were now under the power of their enemies. It made God look bad. God is identified with Israel, and God is given promises.
For example, Jeremiah 31 verses 35 to 37 that no matter what happens, no matter what Israel does, no matter what sins are committed as always, heaven and earth exist. The Jewish people will exist as a people, God promised that so if you're Satan you want to wipe out this chosen people you want to destroy them and make God into a liar and then ultimately you realize that the Jewish people are the ones through whom the Messiah came, you're the devil you understand that the Messiah of Israel is the Savior of the world.
You understand that God used people like Moses and Isaiah and Paul and John, all of them Jews to point to Jesus for sure the Messiah and therefore you're going to oppose even more Jews. Following this, Jesus the Messiah and Satan understanding certain aspects of prophecy. I'm sure certain things are hidden from him and responded to it, but other things are laid out the understands.
I believe he understands plainly that Jesus is coming back to physical Jerusalem, his feet will touch on the Mount of olives as per Zechariah 14 and X1 stated the passages for themselves is pretty straightforward, his feet will touch their anti-Jewish Jerusalem must welcome them back what I say that will ask three Peter tells us Jewish people that if they repent doubles in the Messiah, the Jewish repentance is key for the return of the Messiah, we see the end of Matthew 23.
After the seven blows on the religious hypocrites that Jesus pronounces walls of Jerusalem and Cicero, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who killed the prophets and stone those sent to how often I long to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you are not willing, behold, your house is left you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord Rutha Bob Schama denied was that mean it's the words from Psalm 118 that became used as words of praise to welcome the messianic King. We welcome you King Messiah. That's what happened on we call Palm Sunday when he entered Jerusalem people work hailing him as the son of David, recognizing him as the Messiah, Arusha Bob Schama not blessed to see who comes in the name of the Lord and then what happens is he's rejected is given over to the Romans to be crucified rises from the dead. But before that, he says you will not see me again Jerusalem speaking particular of the leaders you will not see me again until you say Blessed is he who comes in them. Lord, in other words, until you recognize me as the Messiah is a habit that's a word of judgment yes, but it's also a word of promise because like Revelation 17 says when he comes every eye will see him, but here in Matthew 2339. He says that you will not see me Jerusalem until you welcome me back is the messianic King which means if Jerusalem on salmon to the welcome to back is the kingdom, no one will see him until he is welcome back is the messianic King by the Jewish people in Jerusalem, therefore, if you're the devil you will wipe the Jewish people. If you cannot wipe the Jewish people out by all means you want to keep them out of Jerusalem and keep Jerusalem out of their hands. And if that fails, then what ever come what may. You must keep Jewish people away from Jesus the Messiah because just as this is essential and is God's heart that the gospel goes to the whole world was no favoritism in God occurs about every human being on this planet, Jew or Gentile guy wants to see Palestinian save guy wants to see Jewish people say is the same. He cares for each one. He has certain calls and functions and roles to play in this world, but he cares for each individual and Jesus died for those individuals the same of the great bulk of world missions effort is to reach the whole world through to reach the overwhelming population of the world that is not Jewish mess with the church is been doing, century after century after century after century, the vast, vast, vast, vast majority of's resources go to reach the lost around the world in terms of missions outreach is a small portion the ghost Jewish outreach. Understandably, because the Jewish people are small portion, the percentage of people on the earth. So God's heart beats for the whole world or or school of ministry by God's grace burst emissions organization fire internationally can find out about it by going to fire – international.org and seeing what these missionaries are doing around the world and many we can't print where they are, what you doing. It's too sensitive. It's too dangerous that that was birthed at a revival move and are hard to see the gospel go to the whole world, so the last thing I'm saying is only concentrate on Israel, no, God's heart is for the whole world and this gospel of the kingdom must be preached as a witness in all nations, and then the end will come, and has Paul explained it.
Romans 11 2526 that the fullness of the Gentiles will commit the hardening will be removed from Israel and so all Israel will be saved on the heels of the forms of the Gentiles, and perhaps even provoked spiritually by the fullness of the Gentiles in this glorious event, the Messiah's return ushered in by his own Jewish people interested group who welcome him, recognize him as the messianic King is the whole world was praying. Even so, Lord Jesus. Let's understands plainly.
If you've ever read about the Holocaust and the monstrous demonic evil of yes, human beings have committed atrocities against human beings through the ages right to this moment and in their all types of terrible things that we need to to think about and know about in world history in our nation and around the world in terms of human atrocities.
There is a dimension of evil, the Holocaust, though, when you you just read the books and the death camps in there just slaughtering as many thousands of Jews men women and children by the second.
Every day that they can simply because there Jews. There's a monstrous nature of that evil and you look at silk. I know there human beings doing and they're fully responsible some so demonic about an end, the same demonic entities. The same devil that inspired the Nazis. It is also inspiring Hamas terrorists to wipe out as many Jews as possible to slaughter the Jews to destroy the Jews, although Hamas is not doing what the Nazis did in that same way. Whatever Hamas is doing is not on that same level of of evil in terms of the systematized extermination of the people of Hamas had total power. Who knows what they would do. But here limit typographical for those who are watching it's a graphic of of the nation of Israel surrounded by Muslim countries, surrounded by hostile countries and you might have a debate about one country on the map or where exactly they they fit ideologically, but it's really quite striking. Now you've got your more potential piece with some of the surrounding nations. But if you're looking at it you. You've got this tiny tiny little red sliver son on the map that I'm look it's tiny, tiny little red sliver that's that's his gut overtook to the right if it's up to the east. You've got Jordan and Southeast South Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, then further over to the East Iraq to the north Lebanon then Syria and then to the Southwest Egypt and Belize. That's the dog and then Libya and Algeria, Tunisia, etc. of a indent when you keep make it larger larger because this tiny tiny little sliver tiny sliver Israel and and for decades surrounded by hostile enemies that will wipe it out. And yet and yet the world is an uproar when Israel defends itself and as Christians are slaughtered daily around the world.
There is barely enough big deal. Israel kills Palestinians fighting in self-defense the whole world is an uproar ready to bash Israel again why it satanic friends is ultimately satanic. Satan wants to wipe out the Jewish people. It's the only way to fully explain. Yes, there's been divine judgment and chastising. Yes, Israel's made wrong choices of Jewish people made wrong choices, but ultimately Satan wants to wipe out the farm, I might get a bunch of calls today, 866-3487 84 looking at the phone once a couple phone lines open so great time call in. Then I will share a special director error on the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown, the voice of more cultural and spiritual revolution of your exam is Dr. Michael Brown and I welcome you as early as Thursday.
Good beautiful see the singing of Psalm 120 1C. A quote post from Jeremy on Facebook. The Jews stand up against the state of Israel. Like many of them are actually actually what Israel allows is all types of criticism and self-criticism and it it welcomes its own people.
Israelis different with the government differing with the right, it welcomes its own people siding with with Muslim activists and others because there is diversity views allowed their wares. If you go over the Gaza Strip. You go over the West Bank and Palestinian Authority. Those open views of dissenting difference will not be tolerated and it's it's a revealing thing and it's ironic and it's just another example of the demonic nature of of anti-Semitism that you will have anti-Israel pro-Hamas Marxist member.
Hamas is a terrorist organization. You have anti-Israel pro-Hamas marches and you'll often have gay and lesbian and radical feminist activists leaving the marches or participating in the marches of the scene at quite a few times and the irony is, of course, that they be welcomes to margin Israel gay activists, radical feminists of the state may be welcome to the March they feel totally at home in Tel Aviv, feeling home but they would in their protest against Israel against the monster Israel.
On the other hand, you try that same March openly gay, lesbian, radical feminist marching Gaza Strip is less much of your life you the dead or in jail yet. They're the ones there marching for ironic isn't it.
Okay I will tell you about an opportunity stand with us in a moment but first let's let's take some calls and we will start with David in Lake Elsinore, California.
Welcome to the line of fire) yup can think our bill, I practice it a little bit the question. I agree with everything you said so far on today show.
I am, I do believe that Israel has a right to land God promised Abraham I believe in everlasting covenant God made with Abraham not been undulated with God that brought Israel back the land. Whatever means right of the last month and 1/2 or so I've really been trying to understand the origins of the Palestinian Israeli conflict in I found it so much more complex night everyone imagined and just been super humbling to make the ideas and started a little bit of emotional bank, but so trying to come to terms with the fact that both sides of different groups of Zionist and Arabs have had back-and-forth conflicts and committed like really atrocious when you think toward one another done really terrible thing towards one another, even people that would claim about terrorist activity that burns in Aragon or Stern gang different effects of diet right wing extremist would've been put in the right and I'm trying understand that I honestly don't even know the only true because I tried looking at the sources article history on Stefan.
If you like some sort of stumbling will almost empathize terrible things that Zionist did toward the Arabs and pro-Zionist sources will show that there is no history illiterate relief make it seem a bit if the exact opposite way look like a very cordial like them just trying to save civilians overhearing and really just collapse of the bad guys right on that pro-Arab side of how things that a favorite big slaughtered a bunch of civilian children really are trying understand Dr. Brown you you can help me or lead me toward some kind of really great material books reflect videos anything to try and understand absolutely and I love the approach you are convinced by Scripture theologically that Congress Jewish people back to the land and that it is a promise that God gave not based on Israel's goodness. But on God's goodness and it was a one-way covenant God made it with the patriarchs, unconditional of the Sinai covenant where convex lens condition on repentance.
But as Paul explains in Galatians 3 that the promise which perceives the law cannot be annulled by the loss of God at any point can say hey I'm keeping my promise. This doesn't mean that everything Israel does is perfect everything the Palestinians use is evil so it's it's good to search and look a few things. First, I really encourage you to watch this documentary is is called hope in the holy land.
I had of folks that put together on the air last week but hope in the holy land.com go there you can a renter by digitally or or purchase Blu-ray. I'm looking at that the website and I just typed in this we were talking, it's really powerful. It's out I was blown away by how fair it was by the interviews with Palestinians by the interviews with Israelis by hearing hearts on one side and the other hope in the holy land.com that's a really edifying thing to watch him give your heart for everyone as as well as I believe give you a larger perspective of right and wrong then a couple of books that I highly recommend that one of them is by F.
Ryan Karsh K a RSH and it's called Palestine betrayed he's he's Israeli by the top Middle Eastern scholar I believe teaches in England, Prof. in England post on betrayed FIM Karsh K a RSH what happened was documents of the been sealed for many years were opened up.
Researchers could then go firsthand and read things and what he'll show you consistently is the choices of the Arab leaders were destructive that when peace was offered when arrangements were offered that Arab leaders consistently rejected those peace offers. And that's ultimately why the Palestinians are suffering even even to this day it's the case of and as for as for the question of right and wrong in atrocities. The first atrocities are committed under radical Islamic leadership after member.
This is a religious issue. Most of the Jews returning back to the Lamb are fairly secular. Most of the religious settlers waiting for the Messiah to reestablish the land of, but for the Muslim population of interest to quick historical overview there's always been a Jewish presence in the land for the last 2000 years. Despite exile, but it's been a minority presence and the area has been controlled either by the church or by Islam that ultimately Ottoman Empire than under the British mandate after after World War I, but what happened was you had a majority Arab population minority Jewish population and other groups there as well. When you get into the late 1800s there was an increase of Jews coming back to the land beginning to develop it, which then was positive for the.
The Arab population surrounding nations.
There was never Palestinian people or statehood. This was just part of greater Syria Potter part of the Ottoman Empire was like we live here where the Palestinians was no such identity was no Palestinian flag or or nationality or history or coinage or that didn't exist. They had some people who may been in the land for 1800 years. It's possible that there were Jews who were there originally and stayed there through the centuries and then converted under pressure to Islam and some of those we identifies Palestinians. It is actually Jewish DNA among some that we call Palestinians is very interesting when you research that, but the majority started to come over hundred years ago.
As more Jews came in slowly developing the land more Arabs came into the land because they would work the land and for the most part they were working side-by-side numbers. There is not constant hostility and murdering things like that, beginning in the 1920s under Hutch Ameena Husseini the grand Ruthie of Jerusalem who became a confidant to Adolf Hitler. He organized the first intifada, or pogrom against the Jewish people were Jews and had promo slaughtered and this was the beginning. It started with with religious Islamic resistance to the Jews being in the land because after all the Jews were the descendents of apes and pigs and the Jews were cursed and and this was not their land anymore. By 1937, the Peel commission under Great Britain said okay let's do this will have Jerusalem and in other parts of the the country under British and international control. Jews will get out of roughly 15 something percent of the land.
Arabs get roughly 75% of the land. Jewish leadership really debated it leaning towards accepting up the Arab leadership of Rome said no giving up any of the land. No so that you get to 1947 partition plan at this point Jewish leadership saying okay. We accept this it's it's a much worse arrangement in terms of, or it's still a bad arrangement terms of how much Lemme get, but will take it. Arab leaders of course of this is worse than the first arrangement. No way will wipe the Jews out, and this is the beginning of that. The big problem is the surrounding nations attack Israel and were there atrocities committed by Irgun of Stern gang that would be similar to a lot of what happened in the Revolutionary war is American freedom fighters push back against British resistance and there were cases after member, the Jews are trying to flee from Europe.
They are trying to flee from the Holocaust to Palestine and and Britney say no you can't enter in, you cannot come here so so Jews living there watching their people being slaughtered by the millions. And now they can't take refuge in Palestine this so there was some bloodshed there were British leaders that were assassinated by Jews that happen, but you also have the ethic that before they bomb a building like that that King David Hotel. They tell everyone get out because with Obama the place get out so it wasn't like you had this monstrous terrorism. Most of it was just fighting for survival and most of it was in response to surrounding Islamic terrorism.
It is reality of becoming a bit more that the other side of the break and get to all of your of the calls I will today, 866 before truth gives the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH dear Jim is Dr. Michael Brown and thanks for joining us on this thoroughly. Thursday, 8664 truth there is an important book by Benny Morris on the 1948 war so Benny Morris 1948 that gets in-depth with a lot of insight there and lays things out in terms of what happened in internationally and locally as well.
Let me paint this picture for you before I go to phones 866-34-TRUTH so 1947. Israel accepts the partition plan is still tenuous as can be very difficult to defend the nation's better than what was offered 10 years earlier with the Peel commission but Israel says yes to it. Wonderful quotes from Golda Meir, David Ben-Gurion said, look, we can all live side by side there's plenty of room here. We can live as neighbors. Let's do it.
The Arab leadership the Muslim leadership know we will destroy the Jews. We will push you into the sea. Absolutely not have to remember that in Islamic thought, if a territory was once controlled by Islam, especially something as important as importance that the Middle East, Palestine and specifically Jerusalem with the Al-Aqsa mosque in the dome of the rock, and it's is from thence that Mohammed allegedly makes his heavenly ascent on a steep slope. It if something was once under Islamic control and out is wrested from Islamic control that's that's an affront that would be Sir like someone taking off with your wife how could that be you come back from a business trip and Simmons moved into your home and taken it over with your family. How can that be, especially the Jews, of all people, the Jews, so this was unthinkable to the Islamic world. Plus, is this fledgling little nation, barely able to survive just come in the ashes of the Holocaust so five surrounding nations attack.
Of course, Israel has to fight for its life and yes, I have no hesitation.
Synagogue miraculously preserve the Jewish people in the midst of the attack.
So what happens Israel declares its independence and with this about 800,000 Jews from all the surrounding Islamic nations are now exiled. Get out. Jews get out.
Most of them flee to Israel of his good other parts of the world, but most of them flee to Israel and, of course, Israel welcomes them so that are gotta figure out how to incorporate all these new people pouring in and fight for their lives. At the same time. While this is going on. You have maybe 800,000 Arabs living in what was called Palestine. Now Israel would have assembled about 200,000 of them, so roughly 0 figures. About 1/4 of them state will stay in will be neighbors here side-by-side with Israel that 200,000 is over 1,000,000 1/2 today. These are Arabs living in Palestine.
They have seats in the Knesset.
So in the Arabs living in Israel. They have seats in the Knesset, the parliament Supreme Court justices, Arab they are involved in every area of society, but they're not required to fight in the military for various reasons and a good thing positive for them to not be required. Okay tensions have been flaring a lot recently with the arts in different community and use different community but many of live side by side work side-by-side of the use of the 200,000 of Arabs. There came over a million 1/2.
The other 600,000. What happened to them while they fled because of the war.
Some of them simply fled because it was more the one being a war, so they got out of there.
Many of them flit over to the Gaza Strip, which is why it's so populated is it's grown from there. Others fled because the muscle leadership told them to famously know the city can and can't distinguish between a Jew at an end. Muslim soul or Jew and an Arab to get out of there, will destroy the Jews driving the sea than come back your homes not well that it was destroyed. Using driving to the cease of those are poems that we can Jewish homes than others fled because Jews drove them out. In other words, in the midst of war that that there were aggressive Jews in military the drove them out. Those things did happen. There is no genocide there was no attempt to wipe the people out there was an attempt to not have war and live side by side and in the war other trust exists on all sides or atrocities are committed. But it was not the Jewish ethic over all and the Jewish appeal was by and large to stay and be neighbors rather than obviously once war starts, and you're fighting for your loss. So what that's meant now also with the Arab League in the 1950s and we will not receive any refugees from Palestine so now where you go. You're in refugee camps in the West Bank and Gaza Strip urine.
Your rescue capture rescue camps in Jordan and Lebanon, Syria and things like that because I can receive your incorporate you. So this is now going to be an ongoing blemish is not going to be an ongoing stench to make Israel look bad.
The refugee crisis, and now the numbers multiply multiply multiply over the years that they still have refugee status since 1948. Think of it, this does not exist anywhere else in the world refugees get incorporated elsewhere. But know this is an ongoing blemish to make Israel look bad and and it's been fostered by Arab and Muslim leadership has Israel acted perfectly. Most now of course not. And what happens then 60 war 1967. Again, Israel fighting for its life is a recognizer about to be attacked so striking preemptively so they now capture reunified Jerusalem capture Judea Samaria be called the West Bank of the Jordan not have control over that. Some have control over the Palestinians living there and and that's the ongoing situation. Note the Palestinians living there we call West Bank do not have the exact same rights as their Palestinian brothers and sisters living under Israel proper.
They don't, there are inequities the people of Gaza absolutely do not have those same rights but is primarily due to corrupt Islamic leadership lesson on sick, you may have heard about the wall wall that that Israel put up to grab land and to further demoralize the Palestinians is actually about 95% fence security fence was built keep murderers up to keep murderers out its work well in that regard right about 5% of it is wall and an why Walt was keep snipers out because the areas there snipers are killing people so you can keep murderers out from shooting your your children and and and and and your wives and your daughters and your man if you can. If you can keep them out. You gladly give any nation that had the power to do that with you but Israelis in general don't like the fence or the wall.
Palestinians certainly don't like the fence.
The walls divided communities and things like that and controversy over wives here. It's taken land and so on resources but was fascinating is if you listen to the man who designed the wall. He talks about the whole of hope say what's that will at the top of the wall. The structure these little holes in the top of each piece waiting for the day when they can stick the cranes and their whatever tool is through that hole and pull that piece of wall out so the wall does not exist anymore every body ultimately less everybody by large people would like to see the wall come downward is in the fence come down rate is what's I can take. It's going to take leadership saying let's regret how we can dwell side-by-side and and the old adage may be a little caricatured or exaggerated, but the old adage is true. If Palestinians put the records, meaning that the terrorists meaning the leadership meeting. The bad blood among nonhealth people, course, but if the postings were put down their weapons to be no more war if Israel put down their weapons to be no more Israel. That's the sad reality. So focus on the corrupt Palestinian leadership, change leadership would also lessen some of the radicalizing some of the Israeli leadership is going further to the right and further hostile to the Arabs and and and and very ugly positions, but that remains the minority lot as it is in reaction to the constant threats lesson overview study for yourself and then watch the video hope in the holy land.com sums to finish things off with David right going to the phones in one moment, but I will invite you to partner with us friends just got news with real kosher Jesus at great cost and effort has been translated into Hebrew.

Let's go to Danielle in Kansas City, Missouri. Welcome to the modifier Dr. Brown thank you for having me, you bet I can iron an errant is greatly mount my family from Haifa and allow injury for hundreds of years and my light around the identity of the Jewish people like I am a Christian I believe you love your Lord, I really want my heart to pray for the q. week people.
Yet the struggle is their identity, like who are they limiting errant to what continent had an identity crate. She converted to Judaism in daylight North Bend Israel right something right wrong with that picture and I know that we can suggest.
Just a thought for you. I get a break and will come back.
I want to talk to him and gets us more calls so is my question about Ruth who was a Moabite and lullabies are enemies of Israel. But I was okay with it when she joined Wright she converted so right back to answer your question that I have a question for you as well.
Stan, Eddie, stay there because it's the line of fire with your host activist, author, international speaker and theologian Dr. Michael Brown voice of more cultural and spiritual revolution get into the line of fire now by calling 86643 here again is Dr. Michael Brown as friends for joining us on the line of fire. So Danielle, the short answer to your question is that Jewish people or those who are physical descendents of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, who have preserved that identity and those who have converted to Judaism over the years and join the Jewish people. So it is both ethnic as well as religious. That's why you have someone like me, a Caucasian Jew. That's why one of my friends this is an African-American Jew. That's why you have Indian Jews in Chinese fuses as Jewish people did the sins of Israel were scattered all around the world it in judgment and XL for various reasons, many of them.
Most of them over the period of time lost connection to the Jewish people. Otherwise, we have over billion Jews like you have over a billion Chinese and overbilling Indians right so you think that the antiquity of the Chinese people of Indian people.
The people of Israel are very similar except you have given well over billion Chinese well over billion Indians and maybe 14 million Jews. Why so most have been lost to history either died out a killed or intermarried out of Judaism and then you just lose all contact in touch. What about those who married in so Caucasian converts to Judaism, African converts to Judaism Chinese commerce Judaism so they marry in. That's what you have all these different ethnicities but in the end it's a it's a really small number of people overall and and and either they have that ethnic connection or that religious connection to the God of Israel, so either way you want to be praying for them is as Jews. There've always been converts through through history and and that's been understood so those are the ones that got identified another may be more that he's tracked, you know that were forced to convert different ways, but secretly maintain Jewish identity that have happened other Catholicism and Islam.
Over the centuries, so there may be others that God identifies as Jews, but those are the ones that you and praying for and begin to realize voice is such a small number. Overall, compared to what would have been if it was just like any other people group and if God recognizes them, those he recognized the convert like Ruth, then you should have no problem with because there is this a pristine and perfect about it. Anyway, you don't think you got SES Jews and God.
It is you get the whole mix no. You had many don't let Karen know whatever when you find it under there that care and to convert the relating to Judaism and you know cigarette back to old lot. But now she did you for the last two years and now she is working on behalf like the Holocaust happened, the Holocaust happened are people like it was used to deal you got you got to know more than 99.9% of the major commentary about the Holocaust about Hamas terrorism about anti-Semitism worldwide today is not coming from some of his recent convert, they don't have standing. They don't have status when you reading the pads like New York Times op-ed for my friend Rabbi smoothly about worldwide anti-Semitism. Those are the ones in speaking up just don't know where but feels that she was the other thing ultimately being a Jew is not an easy thing here just like being a being and an Arab in America right is that that's that's a minority gets a lot of attention in good ways and then you're blamed for us was Hamas does etc. so it's not like hey I think this will be a cool thing to do to say I'm an Arab and not America, it's not you know if if if if you're you're Jew living in a Ron that's not like a cool autumn, Junior so that's why if you want to convert to Orthodox Judaism. You will be dissuaded from you will be discouraged from it.
You have to really demonstrate that you're serious and you in the asked Jew… Suffering involved with this dilemma, the same Karen under the Nazis would've been slaughtered as a Jew, so just don't be distracted by that focus on the vast majority at where that's not the case and and pray that blinders would would be removed. Hate superquick. I wish I had more time for this. When I recounted history in here. Here you are listening is an Israeli Arab living in America. How would you feel about my recounting of it, opening and I really interesting. I noticed you were very neutral on both died, and I really appreciated not because one of the things that I care a lot lot are a lot of air and fight they're not all bad parents under ^ not all Americans are PLM people you know and so and I really appreciated that you remain neutral and I did write down the documentary that you are talking about and about on Palestine. Arbitrator Jessica Rice, others like it was the book post arbitrator.
If I'm Karsh. The book and then the video hope in the holiness of hope in the hold him another time. Yeah I did write that down. So tell you what Daniel mean, obviously you understandably God with the Jewish people back to the land that I stand with Israel, however, absolutely due to size and absolutely we don't want to demonize all Arabs postings by any means or exonerate everything Israel does Daniel. Once you watch the video hope in the holy land, documentary and/or read the book cost, arbitrate, give us a call back in the give me an update of what you're thinking. After if you go through this okay. Appreciate that a thank you stand so much for holding in Québec, Canada. Welcome to the line of fire. Are you doing doing well thank you thank you thank you I wanted to your question about the very thing I'd heard today rule being gathered or being the joint to the people of Israel comparable to a person joining guide to Judaism I what you think about it, then tried who are not yet gathered as per the 35 what God said.
The children of Israel will be gathered. Also thought I would you what is your opinion about also speak about Judah or the Jew in the state of Israel being a Jewish state. What about the 10 tribes as additional debt, yes… Then number one. Some of the 10 tribes exiled to Syria and other parts the world wiped out lost to history no one uses only whole tribes, but people that were that were ancient Israelites have been lost to history entirely many others joined Judah it we we read about it if you just read through Israel's history and Kings and Chronicles on some of the prophetic books that you had people from the north who fled to the south so in the kingdom of Judah. You had all the 12 tribes represented Paul references the 12 tribes and ask Jacob James in the first chapter telling the Jewish believers represent speaks of the 12 tribes so the Judean people which they became known as the Jewish people they represent all 12 tribes so so among Jews today are descendents of all 12 tribes and his scholars brought the Jewish people back to Lancaster.
The modern state of Israel. They are synonymous. That being said Sir it would not surprise me that there are still remnants of the descendents of Israel scattered in different nations that that God knows you know there's increasing awareness of this in parts of Africa and things like that in some cases, DNA confirmation like that the limbo people of in an they been identified as as some of them even having priestly dissent so there could be others known to God fragments here and there that God will one day restore to the Landor is in the process of restoring is something vehicle had to quickly address. Thank you for your clarification.
How would you want to consider the property of Jacob Graham bayoneted defendant will be the fulfillment or the ingathering of all gent out the nation and compared with Psalms 87 versus three and forward that the city of God. Israel is not physical establishment, but a spiritual one thing that the Ethiopian Babylonian are all born within the city.
The real city of God is from Israel so you can I see you focus a lot on the earthly life because Scripture does stand hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of times. It focuses on the physical city.
The Psalms focus on the physical city. Jesus is coming back to the physical city Isaiah 2 tells us all nations will come screaming to the physical city and on and on and on passage after passage after passage to have one verse or two verses that speak of Zion and the metaphorical spiritual sense, and says that this that everyone will say I'm on born there so the metaphorical spiritual sense, it's a case but I'm gonna keep my focus regardless and I encourage you to do the same thing to keep your focus on what Scripture speaks so the Gentiles are not Israel. Read Romans 11. Over and over again pulses I'm writing to you Gentiles as much as on the apostle to the Gentiles will make my people Israel envious of encouraging you Gentiles to make Israel envious of the Gentiles. Not Israel is one of the Gentiles and NSF rhyme at this essay will be the fullness of all nations, but it'll be a fullness of nations. In other words, this grew into millions of people that this this child or grandchild of Jacob thence of growing into all the tribes to get it.
Millions of people F rhyme is also synonymous with Israel as a whole, but I do not believe in theology that the church is Israel, or that Gentile Christians or Israel with it. That's with NEDs prophecy saying so. Do what God's word does put the emphasis with the word of God does and look at Isaiah 62 we are to pray for the city of Jerusalem. The physical city of Jerusalem. The gobble make the praise of all the earth do that Jewish people turning to the Messiah extent, thank you so much question and may the Lord's richest blessings.
