Why Hate Jews?…miracle nation pt 52

In my distress I cried unto the Lord, and he heard me.  Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue. What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?  Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper. Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!  My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.(Psalm 120)

Why has Anti-Semitism been such an enduring, intractable problem throughout history?

The Jews are the most hated, persecuted, lied about group of any people in all of world history. From the time of their Diaspora in 70AD up to the present the Chosen people of God,have experienced one long night of sufferings ,pograms, calumny, property confiscation, murder, forced conversion, exile, wandering, attempted genocide,and every indignity ever known to man.

The post  exile history of the Jewish people is absolutely heartbreaking. Why are Jews so universally hated? The following is a chart copied from the Judaism online website, summarizing the Jewish experience over the long centuries, mostly in Europe.

This list  doesn’t seem to include the agonizing experience of Jews in the Muslim world over the 14 centuries of their experience in Islam.

Jewish persecution source:
P.E. Grosser & E.G. Halperin, Anti-Semitism: Causes and Effects, New York: Philosophical Library, 1978

Why are the Jews almost universally “Despised and Rejected”of the nations?

Persistent and universal anti-semitism is humanly inexplicable.As we have been pointing out, it is demonic, Satan hates Israel and the Jews, the Dragon hates the woman.

Of course there is the fact that because people hate the God of the Bible, therefore they hate the Jews. Israel, even in her alienation from God, are witnesses to the reality of God, due to the heritage of Jewish prophets, scripture, The Messiah, and the civilization which arose from it.

The Ten Commandments alone are enough to provoke the ire of sinful, rebellious man.The Jews have born the testimony of a Transcendent God who is a lawgiver to whom we all must give account to.

Another possible factor is the idea of Israel being “the chosen people”. Godless people resent any idea of “chosen-ness” because they worship an egalitarian concept. Furthermore when people read the history of Israel in the Bible, they soon see that Israel is as sinful as any other people,so they ask’How could they possibly be the chosen people’?

What they don’t accept, is that Election by God is an act of Grace. Deuteronomy tells us the Jews are loved of God because “he set his love upon them”.

The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:  But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.(Deuteronomy 7:7-8)

Could there be any reason within any of us, that God would love us, choose us and save us? To hate Israel, is to hate and reject grace for Israel is in fact a microcosm of the Human race. There is nothing in any of us that would merit Grace, God is good and gives freely what none of us deserve!

This is why people instinctively and viscerally hate the Jews and Israel…they hate Grace…and they hate God.More than 200 times in scripture, God is called “The God of Israel!

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say;  If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:  Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:  Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.  Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.(Psalm 124)

11 Responses to Why Hate Jews?…miracle nation pt 52

  1. Daniel Wasserman says:

    Hello Pastor Bill . Of course most of what you write is correct. But what about Organized Jewry also known as Zionism. I personally have nothing against what an ordinary Jew represents. Read Rev. 3 about the Church in Smyrna where it says that NOT all Jews are Jews.. So that means that Not all Jews are good. Do you believe that Rockefeller, Kissinger, John Kerry and Obama are good Jews Are you aware that they all have Jewish heritage? Believe they are all of Jewish Blood and their policy is to serve Mammon and Not God. They are Zionists that follow The Talmud just as did the Pharisees during Christ’s first advent and hated Him for NOT installing them as the rulers of this evil world. Under Rothschild’s they implemented their own plan to rule this world and their agenda is Mammon. They control ALL the central Banks in this World and manipulate ALL Politian’s by whatever means to serve them. I’ll leave it at that

    • billrandles says:

      Thanks Daniel- my point is not that “Jews are good”, in fact the opposite. I have said in this and previous articles that the Jews for the most part are alienated from their God, in a state of unbelief, and sinners, even atheists. Their election is not because of their own innate goodness, their election is because of the Grace and love of God which He set upon them. No one is good, all of us are sinners and have come short of the glory of God. Uniquely privileged people are uniquely bad, when they turn away from the one who blessed them. Backslidden Christians can sin in ways pagans cannot sin, because judgment is according to Light given. The religion of Judaism is nothing like the religion of Moses and the prophets, Jeremiah predicted this when he said “My people have committed two evils, they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters and hewn out cisterns that cannot hold water. If the LORD spared not Israel in her decline and apostasy, what will become of the modern church which has apostatized against greater light?

    • Sharon says:

      Good comments Daniel.
      It’s not and never has been a question of Jews being “good,” for salvation has nothing to do with being “good” as you know. Are you referring to the explicit list of blessings, and the list of curses, in Deuteronomy by which Moses, from God, warned the Israelites would come on them if they continued in their unbelief? Dreadful curses – they incurred because (as we all know) they DID persist in their unbelief even unto the destruction of their beloved city and temple in AD 70.

      That list of curses in Deuteronomy 28: 15 – 68 reads somewhat like the list of curses in this article!

      But then is it surprising that was the resulting behaviour of those Israelites? Paul said in Romans 9: 6 ” … For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: neither because they are the seed of Abraham , are they all children: but, “in Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, they which are the children of the flesh are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. … though the number of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved.” Election yes but only for those who are of the promise of God. Paul terms it “Israel of God” Gal. 6: 16 and he gives a wonderful elucidation of it throughout his writings as this situation worried him. No wonder when the Jews were so antagonistic towards his teachings and continue to be that way to this day.

      Not withstanding, there is no place for antiseminism anywhere. That is an attitude of mind and there is no understanding of it.

      As for salvation, that is through the Lord Jesus and Jew and “Greek” must all come to Him the same way, no special deals, no privileges through being “a Jew.” Salvation has always been thus but the sacrifice and resurrection of our Lord Jesus forever broke down that wall of partition between Jew and Gentile and now there is neither “Jew nor Greek,”
      ALL who are “in” Christ Jesus are one BUT one must be IN CHRIST and there is only one way for that.

      You mentioned Rockefeller, etc. These Zionist families who have infiltrated areas of commerce down through the ages are in the same league as the Pharisees and Sadducees or ruling elite in the time of Jesus – they are Israel in the flesh and shall have no hope UNLESS they repent and come to Jesus as you and I have had to do.

      There is a remnant today, like in Elijah’s day, who have not “bowed the knee to Baal.”

  2. You asked, “Why has Anti-Semitism been such an enduring, intractable problem throughout history?”

    Look at history. Jews (who just happen to be my relatives) have been kicked out of over 100 countries, some multiple times. In other words, some nations were nice enough to let us back in, only to watch as we resumed our selfish, bigoted, immoral ways, for which we were kicked out again (I am Christian, now).

    Some Jews are the nicest people you would ever want to meet; but the majority (and I do mean, THE majority) are absolute scoundrels who would, literally, cheat their own parents. They have a knack of working their way up to the highest positions of power in nations (even when small in number), only to use those positions to weaken and even destroy those nations by undermining their cultures and religion with the promotion of usury and immorality. They particularly hate Christianity since it was founded by “apostate” Jews (in their opinion), so western civilization has been a prime target for destruction. For example, behind almost every unconstitutional U.S. law you will at least one Jewish sponsor; and Jews on the courts ALWAYS vote to undermine the constitution and Christianity. Count on it! Those who cannot see this, and teach otherwise, are like the blind leading the blind. Those who can see it, and teach otherwise, are Satan’s children.

    The problem is a particularly nasty religion called Judaism. It is no different now than it was in the days of Christ. Judaism began as “Moses and the Prophets”; but those divine texts soon became buried under a huge pile of rabbinical commentary. Rabbinical teachings are even more removed from “Moses and the Prophets” than the “Scofield Reference Notes” are from the New Testament; and that is saying something since Scofield’s notes are based on the spiritualization of first century Judaism. Judaism is almost pure man-made commentary that has taken on a rabid, cult-like status among most Jews.

    I will be happy to answer any of your questions.


  3. Sharon, you wrote, “There is a remnant today, like in Elijah’s day, who have not ‘bowed the knee to Baal.'”

    Are you sure? It appears the context of Paul’s statement placed that remnant in his day, or, as he wrote, “at this present time”:

    “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he FOREKNEW. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then AT THIS PRESENT TIME also there is a REMNANT according to the ELECTION of grace.” — Rom 11:1-5 KJV

    Note that Paul stated “God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.” That passage appears to be a combination of Ps 94:14 and Amos 3:2,

    “For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.” — Ps 94:14 KJV

    “You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” — Amos 3:2 KJV

    But some of those He did cast away (permanently) because He no longer considered them to be His people:

    “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” — Mat 7:23 KJV

    Those who receive the promise (that are not cast away) are those (sheep) who hear his voice and keep his covenant:

    “And now if ye will indeed HEAR MY VOICE, and keep my covenant, ye shall be to me a peculiar people above all nations; for the whole earth is mine. And ye shall be to me a royal priesthood and a holy nation: these words shalt thou speak to the children of Israel.” — Exo 19:5-6 LXX

    “My sheep HEAR MY VOICE, and I know them, and they follow me:” — John 10:27 KJV

    Peter wrote to the scattered tribes (diaspora) in Asia Minor they they were part of the fulfillment of Exodus 19:5-6:

    “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.” — 1Pet 2:9-10 KJV

    They were of the ELECTED remnant whom God FOREKNEW, as Paul wrote of in Rom 11:1-5, above:

    “Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered (diaspora) throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, ELECT according to the FOREKNOWLEDGE of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.” — 1Pet 1:1-2 KJV

    End of Part I


  4. Part II of II:

    First Peter 2:10 is a fulfillment of the promise of the restoration from Hosea. This is the fulfillment:

    “Which in time past were not a people, but ARE NOW THE PEOPLE OF GOD: which had not obtained mercy, but NOW HAVE OBTAINED MERCY.” — 1Pet 2:10 KJV

    This is the prophecy:

    “And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Loruhamah: for I will NO MORE HAVE MERCY upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.” — Hos 1:6 KJV

    “And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I WILL HAVE MERCY upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, THOU ART MY PEOPLE; and they shall say, Thou art my God.” — Hos 2:23 KJV

    “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, YE ARE NOT MY PEOPLE, there it shall be said unto them, YE ARE THE SONS OF THE LIVING GOD. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be GATHERED TOGETHER, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up OUT OF THE LAND: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.” — Hos 1:10-11 KJV

    Paul also wrote of the fulfillment in the form a commonly misinterpret question:

    “Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also OF THE GENTILES? As he saith also in Osee [Hosea], I WILL CALL THEM MY PEOPLE, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called THE CHILDREN OF THE LIVING GOD. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a REMNANT shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.” — Rom 9:24-28 KJV

    As you can see, with the exception of the first verse, the statement is clearly about Israel. The first verse is, as well. The prophecy of Hosea states the Lord took away his mercy from Israel, and no longer considered them to be His people. That would render them to be “of the nations” (e.g., of the heathen, or, of the Gentiles), rather than “of Israel”. But the Lord promised to restore a remnant–those whom he foreknew, of which both Peter and Paul wrote of, and of which Christ said he (along with his disciples) was sent unto:

    “These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” — Mat 10:5-6 KJV

    “But [Jesus] answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” — Mat 15:24 KJV

    A little wordy, but I hope you get the picture.


  5. Sharon says:

    LXX. I appreciate your time in that post. I think I follow your reasoning.
    When I said there was a remnant today as in Elijah’s day I meant just that. The Lord has sheep who know His voice and He came to find them. Today there still exist His sheep which I term a remnant because in terms of the total people who claim to “know” Him, are small in number.

    I agree that not all of Israel is the true Israel as Paul is adamant in teaching in his writing.
    I take your point about the corruptness of Jews in high places today though it did surprise me as to the extent, though it shouldn’t have. I have heard this before but just put it down to antiseminism, but I have lately become aware of exactly what you are talking about. The Pharisees and Sadducees (“the Jews”) were prime cases of iniquity in the Old Testament times so it’s not surprising that “Israel in the flesh” continued the same conduct down through the ages and is still as godless in conduct today.

    Being a Christian now, you must appreciate how far removed from salvation those unbelieving Jews today are and what a huge stumbling block Jesus Christ continues to be to them.

    • Sharon, thanks for your reply.

      I believe the only path to salvation for both the Jew and the Gentile is to call on the name of the Lord, which comes from hearing the Gospel:

      “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” — Rom 10:13-15 KJV

      A major stumbling block of late seems to be the modern evangelical doctrine of “Don’t take the Gospel to the Jews; they have their own religion.”

      That is astonishing! No one can be saved through Judaism. It is as if pastors have never read the “Great Commission”, nor are able to grasp the fact that all the apostles preached the Gospel to the Jews; or that Paul was specifically sent to Israel, as well as the Gentiles. God is no respecter of persons. Why are they?


      • Sharon says:

        I quite agree LXX, the gospel should and must be preached to all, Jew and Gentile alike. That same problem was what Paul preached about in Galatians as there were people there who were trying to take believers back under the law! Astounding isn’t it! But there it is – nothing new under the sun.

    What does this all mean? Just this:

    There is a cosmic debate. The issue is: is God just? Is his Word true? Or can Satan demonstrate that God is not true and that his Word is false.

    Annihilating the Jews answers Satan in the affirmative. Saving the Jews answers the LORD in the affirmative.

    We Jews ask: O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongs;
    O God, to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth!
    Rise up, O Judge of the earth:
    render a punishment to the proud.
    Lord, how long shall the wicked,
    how long shall the wicked triumph?

    God says to the nations: The day of the Lord is near for all nations.
    As you have done, it will be done to you,
    Your deeds will return upon your own head.

    God says to the Jews: I will give them praise and honor
    in every land where they were put to shame.

    Psalm 94:1-2; Obadiah 1:15; Zephaniah 3:19
