Welcome to Adventures in Witnessing. If you love talking to people about God
then chances are you will come across an anti-Semite, someone who is against the Jewish people.
There are 2 lies that you will commonly hear about the Jewish people.
1. Jews control the world and are the instigators of most of the world’s problems.
2. Most of the Jews today are not real Jews but imposters and these imposters are
responsible for most of the world’s problems.
Before I address these, let’s look at what God’s Word says about Israel and the Jewish people.
In Genesis 12:1-3 God says to Abram “I will make you a great nation… I will bless those who bless you,
and I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
For You have made Israel Your very own people forever. (Ref. 2 Samuel 7:24)
To Israel as an everlasting covenant,… I will give the land of Canaan… (Ref. Psalm 105:10-11)
The Lord will scatter Israel. (Ref. Jeremiah 31:10)
The Lord will bring them back to their land which He gave to their fathers. (Ref. Jeremiah 16:15)
Jerusalem will be a city of controversy. (Ref. Zechariah 12:2)
The Jewish messiah who is the savior of the world will return and stand on the Mount of Olives which
faces Jerusalem. (Ref. Zechariah 14: 3-4)
So, God has chosen a unique people to be His very own people forever. He gave them their own land to
be theirs forever and He decided to reveal Himself to the world as a Jew, Jesus the Messiah.
But now that Jesus has come, is God finished with the Jewish people?
Again, let’s look at what the Scriptures say…
Has God cast away His people? Certainly not! (Ref. Romans 11:1)
To the Israelites pertain the service of God and the promises. (Ref. Romans 9:4)
Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the election they are beloved for
the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable. (Ref. Romans 11:28-29)
Do not be ignorant of this mystery… that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved… (Ref. Romans 11:25-26)
When the Messiah returns they will look on Him whom they pierced and mourn for Him and all Israel
will believe in Jesus. (Ref. Zechariah 12:10-11)
So, clearly God is not finished with His people. He has chosen them, made promises to them and has a
special purpose for them.
Now what about the lies?
Let’s start with the one that says, ‘most of the Jews today are not real Jews but imposters and especially
those with European descent.’ They claim that these Jews are false converts whose blood does not go back
to Abraham. Here’s my issue with this claim; Abraham’s blood line has changed many times. Joseph married
an Egyptian, Moses married an Ethiopian, Israel took in 32,000 Midianite virgins, and don’t forget about
Rahab the harlot and Ruth the Moabite who are in the genealogy of Jesus. God has never had a problem
with gentiles becoming Israelites, which means the blood line has changed many times.
Another question that must be asked… Would God allow imposters to fulfill Biblical prophecy?
As in the case with the 1948 rebirth of the nation of Israel.
Now, do the Jews control the world? Are they responsible for most of the world's problems? Let’s look at
the facts; Jewish people have suffered more persecution throughout the ages than any other people
group. Look at the way the UN treats Israel to this day. Even though being small in numbers, Jews have consistently risen to the top of society in awards, accolades, and achievements. God’s favor on the Jewish
people has preserved them and His Biblical principles have helped them succeed in almost ever country
where they have lived. This is one of the reasons why people lie about the Jews and the other reason
belongs to the devil. Satan tries to influence people against God’s chosen people.
Now please heed this warning from the Scriptures,
’Do not boast against the branches (The Jewish people)… for you do not support the root, but the root
supports you…Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity,
but toward you goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.
(Ref. Romans 11:18-22)
And to Abram He said, “I will make you a great nation… I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse
him who curses you.” (Ref. Genesis 12:1-3)
Now for the bottom line! God chose a people to be His very own people forever and we are not to
boast against them, but we are to love and support them.
So, will you help me stand with Israel?
