The Spiritual Significance of Anti-Semitism


Breaking Israel News: According to the Anti-Defamation League, the number of reported anti-semitic incidents in the United States was 57% higher in 2017 than in 2016.

The data for 2018 are not yet in. Unfortunately, the massacre at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh last month, in which 11 Jewish victims were killed by a lone gunman, suggests that 2018 will also show a dramatic increase.

Jerusalem-based author and Torah educator Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf connects the uptick in antisemitism with geula (the End of Days).

He told Breaking Israel News, “What is unique about anti-semitism is that it is eventually about the desire to exterminate the Jewish people. It’s not just prejudice or racism. It comes down to extermination. more …

Opinion: There have been many anti-Semites throughout history as I wrote about in Antichrist: The Search for Amalek. While hatred against the Jewish people is by far the most common global bias against any people group, it is prophesied that one person in every generation (Exodus 17:16) will try to eradicate the Jewish people.

While that kind of hatred is unique to only one people group, another people group will see it as their mission in life not just to kill, but to eradicate the Jew from memory:

“Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” Psalm 83:4.

‘Kill all the Jews’ was spoken by the Pittsburgh killer. Iranian leader Khamenei speaks a version of that whenever there is a camera on him, as do the leaders of every Islamic terror group on the planet. Who could forget a decade ago when Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ran around the world saying ‘wipe Israel off the map’.

Imagine the outcry if that was said by Jews against Muslims?

The Jew is Satan’s target. It is written that the Messiah would be born to a Jewish virgin girl (Isaiah 9:9) in the Jewish city of Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) and the Jew would be His people and He would be their God (Jeremiah 32:38).

It is simple really, kill the Jew, prevent Messiah’s first coming – Fill Israel with Edomites, prevent Jesus’ second coming (Zechariah 14:4).

Satan was defeated at the cross. With atonement for sin paid in full (tetelestai), everyone who believes that truth can be forgiven (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9). Today, Satan’s war is against Christ’s return, and yet most refuse to see or hear (Mark 8:18).

There is a  prophecy that is in the process of being fulfilled in a CNN report about the Pittsburgh synagogue killer, see if you can spot it before looking at the end of this post:

Anderson Cooper did not name the killer:

“Therefore, when Hashem your God grants you safety from all your enemies around you, in the land that Hashem your God is giving you as a hereditary portion, you shall blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget!” (Deuteronomy 25:19)

In the millennial reign of Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:1-4), when God fulfills the blessing Isaac gave to Jacob (Genesis 25:26-27), the name of Amalek will be forgotten.
