If you’ve been reading my blog you know that there is a huge Christian evangelical movement to convert Jews to Christianity. They call it Messianic Judaism and tell the lie that you can believe that Yehoshua (Jesus) is your messiah and still be a practicing Jew. I’m not going to go into why that is a lie in this blog. I’m going to try to answer the question of why they have a mandate to have Jews accept Jesus as their savior.
The goal of messianic “Judaism” and similar groups is to blur the line between Judaism and Christianity, to make Christianity more palatable to Jews. Some evangelical Christian’s believe that for the return of Christ to occur, a certain amount of Jews must accept Jesus. The count varies but 144,000; 12,000 for each of the 12 tribes is a popular number. Most messianic “Jewish” congregations and organizations are intertwined with the evangelicals, who start and fund these congregations. Most of the members of messianic “Jewish” congregations are practicing evangelical Christians.
If you have never heard of the Rapture you are about to. The concept was popularized in the 17th century by Increase Mather and his son Cotton Mather. They said that those who believed would be caught up in the air. When all these good Chistians were miraculously transported to (presumably) heaven, those left on earth would be judged and this would be followed by the millenium.
Today there are variations on the theme but the basics remain the same. The big difference is the Jewish factor. When the UN voted to give the Jewish people their own nation in 1948, some evangelicals saw this as a sign of prophesy in the Christian bible coming to fruition. I don’t know how they interpreted the bible and there are many different interpretations but this is a compendium of what they believe.
When 144,000 Jews have been converted to accept Jesus, the Rapture will occur sending all true Christians immediately to heaven and the arms of Jesus. (The first reason they need to convert us.) Left behind will be everyone else. During the next thousand years, the anti-Christ will walk the earth trying to turn people away from Jesus. At the same time, the 144,000 converted Jews will walk the earth trying to get people to accept Jesus. (Now you know the second reason they need to convert us.) At the end of a thousand years, the Second Coming will occur and Jesus will return to earth, ruling from Jerusalem. At that time all those who accepted Jesus will live on earth in peace; The rest of us-well sorry dear reader but we’re going to hell and burn in the fires of eternal damnation. Oh, and I thought the Christians were doing this out of their love for the Jews.
Well the truth is out. Evangelical Christians want Israel for Jesus and his followers while they live it up somewhere up above. The fact that Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and all the other faiths that don’t accept their belief system will be burning below, doesn’t seem to bother them one bit. So please-don’t tell me that evangelical Christians are raising millions upon millions of dollars for Israel to help the Jews. Their motives are clear if you just open your eyes and mind to see them. Most of their money in Israel goes to form centers run by evangelical Christiansto help Jews accept Yehoshua (Jesus). The leaders in Israel are blinded by the money and look away from the truth of these people. They are not our friends, they are our nemesis.
My husband tells me this piece of history from the Holocaust. Eichmann offered the Allies a trade; 500 Jews for one truck. He was turned down and the thousands that might have been saved, went to their deaths in the camps. My question is this: What is the price of a Jew today?
