G-D’S JUDGMENT

Zechariah 12:9: “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

The cowardly and barbaric assault on innocent Jewish worshippers in the Har Nof synagogue in Jerusalem is one of the bloodiest terrorist attacks on Israel in years.
We at Emet Ministries totally condemn this disgusting, barbaric and cowardly terrorist attack.

Can you imagine what would happen if Jews – or anybody for that matter - would go into a mosque and kill worshippers.
You would get the usual frenzied Arab response of guns being fired in the air; flags of Israel and the US and effigies being burned; Arabs throwing stones and rioting.

The majority of Israelis, on the other hand, after a terrorist attack, quietly go about with their lives, keeping their grief and anger to themselves.

And what about the response of the world?
When Israelis respond to provocation, it is “the disproportionate response of Israel”.
Although President Obama condemned the Har Nof synagogue terrorist attack, in my opinion it was a very quiet condemning of the attack.
I hardly heard any condemnation from other world leaders.
Again, when Arabs are killed or injured, Israel is horribly condemned by the world.

And world leaders are recognizing Palestine as a nation…how sick. But what can you expect from ignorant, ungodly leaders of nations.

But what about the church?
Well, much of the church is strangely quiet about the cowardly and dastardly attack on the Jewish worshippers. And much of the church stands with the Arabs living in the West bank and Gaza against Israel.

Now this is something I cannot understand.
Hasn’t the church realised that the enemies of Israel are also the enemies of Jesus?

On top of this, many in the church support a ‘two state solution’ which means dividing Jerusalem, as both Fattah and Hamas see Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
I wonder if some church leaders read and have an understanding of G-d’s prophetic word and G-d’s covenantal promises to the Jewish people.
It seems not.
If they did have an understanding of G-d’s prophetic word and G-d’s covenantal promises to the Jewish people, they would never support Israel’s enemies; neither would they support a “two-state solution”.
And clearly some church leaders seem to have no inkling of G-d’s judgment on those who go against the Jewish people, Israel and Jerusalem.

Let me remind the church and the world about G-d’s judgment which we read in the bible in the book of Joel chapter three: “For behold, in those days and at that time…I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land…The LORD also will roar from Zion, And utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake; But the LORD will be a shelter for His people, And the strength of the children of Israel. “So you shall know that I am the LORD your God, Dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, and no aliens shall ever pass through her again…Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom a desolate wilderness, because of violence against the people of Judah, for they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall abide forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.””

I end with the scripture I began with, Zechariah 12:9: “It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”

GO AND BE AN AMBASSADOR FOR G-D

2 Corinthians 5:20: “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ”.

As Believers in Yeshua, we cannot live our lives oblivious to the fact that we are G-d’s ambassadors on this earth.
As G-d’s ambassadors, we are to GO and proclaim the Good News of salvation.

In four books of the bible, the church is given a command to take the gospel to all nations.
And in Luke 24:47 and Acts 1:8, Yeshua tells us to begin with the Jewish people.

Throughout the Old Testament, G-d told people to “GO”.

Abram was told to “GO” - Genesis 12:1: “Now the LORD had said to Abram:…GO to a land that I will show you.””

Moses was told to “GO” - Exodus 8:1: “And the LORD spoke to Moses, “GO to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me.””

Jonah was told to “GO” - Jonah 1:1-2: “Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, “Arise, GO to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it.””

Elijah was told to “GO” - 1 Kings 18:1: “And it came to pass after many days that the word of the LORD came to Elijah, saying, “GO, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.”

Ezekiel was told to “GO” - Ezekiel 3:4: “Then He said to me: “Son of man, GO to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them.”

The Children of Israel were told to “GO” and possess their land - Deuteronomy 1:8: “See, I have set the land before you; GO in and possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers--to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

The Disciples were told to “GO” - Matthew 10:5-8: “These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But GO rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.””

And Yeshua tells us to “GO”.
We see this in Matthew 28:19: “GO therefore and make disciples of all the nations”, as well as in Mark 16:15: “GO into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
And as G-d’s ambassadors, we are to GO to the Jewish people.

The bible mandates the Gentile Church regarding the Jewish people to come alongside the Jewish people and the Land of Israel and to “Provoke the Jewish people to salvation”.

We see this in Romans 11:11-14: “I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them.”

In fact G-d showed His intention to use the church to take the Good News of salvation to the Jewish people when He spoke to Moses in Deuteronomy 32:21: “They (the Jewish people) have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God; They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols. But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation (the church); I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.”

As G-d’s ambassadors, how much of the church is fulfilling the ‘Great Commission’ by sharing with people the good news of salvation that comes through Yeshua.

Yeshua never went to the saints; He always went to the sinners.
We see this in Mark 2:16-17: “And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, “How is it that He eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

And as believers we should mix with sinners and be G-d’s instruments to lead them to salvation.

Regarding G-d’s chosen people, Israel, how much of the church are G-d’s ambassadors to the Jewish people?
In fact, how much of the church is concerned about fulfilling their G-d given mandate regarding the salvation of the Jewish people?
After all, Yeshua is Jewish and His family of the flesh is the Jewish people.

So, are YOU an ambassador for G-d?

Are you an ambassador for the ‘Great Commission’?
Are you an ambassador for the salvation of the Jewish people?
Are those of you who know Jewish people fulfilling your G-d given mandate as a believer by taking the gospel to the only people group mentioned BY NAME in the bible – the Jewish people?
And if you don’t know Jewish people, are you at least earnestly praying for their salvation?

Please don’t just warm a pew in a church. Be an ambassador for G-d and GO fulfil your G-d given mandate by taking the gospel to the unsaved, telling them about the Good News of salvation that comes through the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua.
