THIS ISN’T ANTISEMITISM OR HATE SPEECH TOWARDS THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
THIS IS THE BIRTH OF CHRIST AND THE WARNING FROM THEIR OWN OT TORAH. ALONG WITH NT PROPHESY.
Before we discuss the judgment that will come upon the Jews, it’s necessary to point out that they’ve missed the Messiah when He came the first time.
The entire Jewish community, with the exception of the Messianic Jews, have rejected the New Testament and Isaiah chapter 53.
A clear indication that the Lord Jesus, though indisputably is from the lineage of David, is rejected.
Even His signs, wonders, and miracles weren’t enough to persuade Jews that He is the Son of God.
In the end times, many have declared that they’re the Messiah just as Jesus warned us.
Matthew 24:5 (NKJV)
“For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.”
Even the Antichrist, assisted by the false prophet, will have messianic qualities with false signs, wonders, and miracles to deceive even the very elect (Israel).
When the Messiah came the first time, the Jews didn’t recognize Him even though the Scriptures clearly pointed Him out before He came.
The first indication of the coming Messiah is recorded in Genesis 3:15.
Genesis 3:15 (NKJV)
“And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
Paul confirms this in Galatians 3:15-16 (NKJV)
“Brethren, I speak in the manner of men: Though it is only a man’s covenant, yet if it is confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it. Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.“
When the Lord God called Abram out of Ur of the Chaldees, it was the beginning of the process of manifesting His promise.
The second Scripture further indicates that the Messiah would come.
Deuteronomy 18:17-19 (NKJV)
“And the LORD said to me: What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.”
Then when it was time, the Lord would be born in Bethlehem just as the Scriptures prophesied.
1 Samuel 17:12 (NKJV)
“Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehem Judah, whose name was Jesse, and who had eight sons. And the man was old, advanced in years, in the days of Saul.”
If it weren’t for Boaz meeting Ruth, Jesse wouldn’t have been born.
Ruth 4:18-22 (NKJV)
“Now this is the genealogy of Perez: Perez begot Hezron; Hezron begot Ram, and Ram begot Amminadab; Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon; Salmon begot Boaz, and Boaz begot Obed; Obed begot Jesse, and Jesse begot David.”
Micah 5:2 (NKJV)
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me
The One to be Ruler in Israel,
Whose goings forth are from of old,
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)
“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.“
Here’s another prophesy from Isaiah.
Isaiah 7:13-17 (NKJV)
“Then he said, “Hear now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign:
Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good.
For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose the good, the land that you dread will be forsaken by both her kings.
The LORD will bring the king of Assyria upon you and your people and your father’s house—days that have not come since the day that Ephraim departed from Judah.”
Now the fulfillment of what the Lord God promised in Genesis 3:15 becomes a reality.
Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.
And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”
But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was.
Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.
He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
Matthew 1:18-25 (NKJV)
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “
Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”
So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS.“
Then you have the census ordered by Rome to force Mary and Joseph to return to Bethlehem to be counted.
Luke 2:1-7 (NKJV)
“And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child.
So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”
Matthew 2:1-6 (NKJV)
“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”
When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born.
So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet:
‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
Are not the least among the rulers of Judah;
For out of you shall come a Ruler
Who will shepherd My people Israel.'”
Note the last verse here that it quoted Micah’s prophesy.
Then after the Lord Jesus spoke of the rivers of living water, this is what the crowd said of the Lord Jesus.
John 7:40-44 (NKJV)
“Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, “Truly this is the Prophet.” Others said, “This is the Christ.”
But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee? Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”
So there was a division among the people because of Him. Now some of them wanted to take Him, but no one laid hands on Him.“
Why was it necessary to discuss the birth of Christ?
Because the Jews rejected Him.
John 1:10-14 (NKJV)
“He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.“
During His ministry on earth, the Jews failed to read the Scriptures.
Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said,
“Truly this is the Prophet.” Others said, “This is the Christ.”
But some said, “Will the Christ come out of Galilee?
Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”
Then the Lord Jesus gives the Jews a parable.
Mark 12:1-12 (NKJV)
“Then He began to speak to them in parables:
“A man planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a place for the wine vat and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country.
Now at vintage-time he sent a servant to the vinedressers, that he might receive some of the fruit of the vineyard from the vinedressers. And they took him and beat him and sent him away empty-handed.
Again he sent them another servant, and at him they threw stones, wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully treated. And again he sent another, and him they killed; and many others, beating some and killing some.
Therefore still having one son, his beloved, he also sent him to them last, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ But those vinedressers said among themselves, ‘
This is the heir.
Come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ So they took him and killed him and cast him out of the vineyard.
“Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do?
He will come and destroy the vinedressers, and give the vineyard to others.
Have you not even read this Scripture:
The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’s doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?”
And they sought to lay hands on Him, but feared the multitude, for they knew He had spoken the parable against them. So they left Him and went away.“
“The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day the LORD has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.”
I’ve spent a lot of time showing these Scriptures because we need the whole picture as to why the Lord will judge the Jews. That’s why the Lord Jesus said…..
Luke 24:44-49 (NKJV)
“Then He said to them, “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in
the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”
And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.
Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
The Psalms reveal the Messiah in Psalm 22.
Daniel’s prophesy is pivotal.
Daniel chapters 2, 7, 9, and 12 is key.
When the Temple is built in Jerusalem, for 3 and a half years, the Jews will be able to worship on the Temple Mount as the Antichrist will enter into a covenant with the Jews and the world. Then in the middle of the week, the Antichrist will cease sacrifices and offerings. Then Revelation 13 comes into play.
Then the Whore of Babylon will kill many Jews and true believers that were saved during the great tribulation.
The Lord Jesus warned of this in Matthew 24.
In addition to the judgment of the Jews, the earth will receive the wrath of God.
The seven seals on a single scroll, the seven trumpets, and the seven bowls.
Those that receive the mark of the beast will be judged.
The Jews that received the mark of the beast will be judged.
Then after these things, in Revelation 19, the Lord Jesus will return with great power and glory as He said He would in Matthew 24.
Even to this day, the Jews reject the Messiah. And part of this rejection is because of their rejection even of the Torah. Their religious festivals are an abomination to God.
Here’s a taste of their traditions that the Lord rejected.
There’s tons of video on Jewish Mysticism.
It’s also known as Hasidic or Jewish Mysticism.
It’s a combination of the Torah (OT Jewish Bible), and the Talmud (Jewish traditions passed from generation to generation).
So here’s the info on the Talmud from Wikipedia.
“The entire Talmud consists of 63 tractates, and in the standard print, called the Vilna Shas, there are 2,711 double-sided folios.
It is written in Mishnaic Hebrew and Jewish Babylonian Aramaic and contains the teachings and opinions of thousands of rabbis
(dating from before the Common Era through to the fifth century)
on a variety of subjects, including halakha, Jewish ethics, philosophy, customs, history, and folklore, and many other topics.
The Talmud is the basis for all codes of Jewish law and is widely quoted in rabbinic literature.”
They’re considered ultra orthodox.
Why mention this?
Mysticism and Tradition.
“He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?
For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’
But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother,
“Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God”—
then he need not honor his father or mother.’
Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.”
And we wonder why Daniel chapters 7, 9, and 12, and the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ will happen.
Wonder no more.
The Destruction of Jerusalem
(Matt. 24:15–28; Mark 13:14–23
“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near.
Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her.
For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days!
For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations.
And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.”
The Jews from 1 Samuel 8, rejected The King.
Pilate made a sign to be installed on the cross.
“This Is Jesus King Of The Jews.”
Yes, He will return to save Israel as Jesus, King Of The Jews.”
