jimmy-carter-fist-APBreitbart: “Former President Jimmy Carter is the featured keynote speaker at this weekend’s Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention at Detroit’s Cobo Hall.

The Justice Department recently implicated ISNA, which claims to be America’s largest Muslim organization, as the lead conduit in a scheme to illegally pass on $12 million to Hamas, the Palestinian terror group established to annihilate the State of Israel. Hamas is officially designated a terrorist group by the US government.”

Opinion: Racism is condemned against any and all nationalities, except one, Judaism.

A review of a 1991 book “The Oldest Hatred” by Robert S. Wistrich:

“The book predicted the resurgence of the ancient hatred; it was unfortunately correct. In the introduction Wistrich discusses the problematic term ‘Anti-Semitism’ then briefly explores its continuity and development down the ages. He does not believe that history provides definitive answers to the Why? of the phenomenon but emphasizes the importance of understanding the How? of it. The most enduring conspiracy theory of all times, it’s a shape shifter and nothing seems able to stop it.”

Neither the Reformation nor the Enlightenment put an end to anti-Semitism. Neither the author nor most Christians today understand its roots. Wistrich missed the most important point, that while history has not provided definitive answers to anti-Semitism - Bible prophecy does.

In Genesis 12:3, God promised to bless those who bless Abraham and his descendants after him, and curse those who cursed him and his descendants. That covenant began a great battle that had been prophesied in Genesis 3:15 between the ruler of this world, Satan, and the coming Savior, Jesus Christ.

When God changed Abram’s name to Abraham (Genesis 17:5) and created a holy people unto Himself, Satan launched an attack, because out of Abraham’s bloodline, the Messiah would come.

Replacement Theology, or Supersessionism, essentially teaches that the Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan and that the covenant that God made with Abraham was finished.

All the different views of the relationship between the Church and Israel can be divided into two camps: either the Church is a continuation of Israel (replacement/covenant theology), or the Church is completely different and distinct from Israel (Dispensational Theology).

Replacement Theology became the position of the early Church during the time of Augustine (A.D. 354-430), who popularized it in his book The City of God. Initially, Augustine claimed that he was a Chiliast, one who believed in the literal thousand-year reign of Christ on the earth, the basic view of Premillennialism today.

Having come to the conclusion that this view was “inferior” and “carnal,” he adopted the position that the reign of Christ should be much more “spiritual” and it would occur during this present Church Age.  Therefore, the view of the Church was that the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70 was brought about divinely, that God had ordained the end of unbelieving Jewish Israel. The prophecies of condemnation and judgment, however, still remain for national Israel and the Jewish people.

Major Christian denominations have advanced either Replacement or Covenantal theologies despite major problems with these views, i.e., completely ignoring the supernatural survival of the Jewish people, and Israel’s prophesied rebirth in one day among the gentile nations (Isaiah 66: 7-8).

The miracle of Israel's rebirth

Debkafile: “Battered by Hamas’ escalating rocket and mortar assaults, Israelis are again tossed on the uncertain waters of an imminent ceasefire which never materializes. This illusion is propagated again by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi. Washington has also been enlisted to the effort by drafting a resolution for the UN Security Council. It was tabled at the request of the White House with quiet backing from Netanyahu for the purpose of blocking the European measure, which is backed by Qatar, one of the Hamas’ few supporters and host to its political leader Khaled Meshaal.

Why is President Barack Obama standing behind Egypt and Israel this time?

His reasoning is complicated. Netanyahu and El-Sisi, who speak regularly and discreetly by phone, have been persuaded by their intelligence services that Meshaal is an impediment – not just to a temporary ceasefire, but to any sort of accommodation for ending the Gaza conflict. They are convinced that all the Palestinian factions, including Hamas-Gaza, would go for an end to the war, in the hope of a Gaza deal leading to a settlement between Israel and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Those intelligence analysts cling to the hypothesis that Hamas-Gaza really wants to end the war, and this assumption dominates top-level thinking in Jerusalem and Cairo, in the face of all Hamas’ actions to the contrary in 50 days of escalating Hamas warfare up until Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Opinion: The war against the Jews of Israel is Satanically inspired - to gain control over the apple of God’s eye, Jerusalem, the burdensome stone of Zechariah 12:3 “all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

In Luke’s Gospel we find the climax of what we are seeing today: “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.”

Only Messiah Jesus Christ will bring the final peace to Jerusalem. Maranatha.
