Antisemitism might look like something new but surprisingly it is not. Hatred of Jews is found in the Old Testament. In this article by World Israel News there is a push for a president that is against Israel.
“Galvanizing voters who may share the views of people like Omar and Ellison will be cause for concern to America’s Israel supporters…..Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, won the 2019 ‘Anti-Semite of the Year’ award in a poll organized by StopAntisemitism.org.” worldisraelnews.com
After reading the news article, the question would be, is the US, UN, EU, etc. serious about fighting antisemitism?
History is important because without it it will be destined to repeat itself over and over. Think of Hitler and all those after him. As we will see this dates back to the time of the Old Testament.
Antisemitism Dates Back To The Old Testament
Nehemiah 2:10, 19 KJV 10 When Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard about this, they were very much disturbed that someone had come to promote the welfare of the Israelites…. 19 But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?
- Sanballat was from West Bank, Samaria.
- Tobiah was from Jordan.
- Geshem was an Arab.
The Middle East as a whole has not changed their attitude toward God’s people in all this time. Might be new to you but not to God.
Is God For Antisemitism
The simple answer is no. Before the foundation of the world God made his choice. The bible tells us who God has chosen.
Genesis 12:1-3 KJV Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed
God made this covenant with Abram (Abraham). It was passed down to Jacob and God changed Jacob’s name to Israel. God’s covenant of blessings and curses are still in effect today ( Genesis 27:1–29, Numbers 24:1-9).
The real choice here will be do you want you and your family to be blessed or cursed.
