Just Wondering…

Ever wonder about the people of Germany in the 1930’s?  That is when a nation which called itself a Christian nation allowed a tyrant of untold horror to come to power.  How did this tyrant, Adolf Hitler come to power in a civilized country, indeed how was he voted in?  How were a people who claimed to be mostly Christian deceived into embracing one of the most evil ideologies in all of history?  How was the ideology of Nazism allowed to continue until it was overcome by the death of fifty million souls? Why didn’t Christian churches stand against the evil that so encompassed Europe and indeed the world?  How was it that the silence of the lambs became a shout of acceptance to the “Final Solution” where genocide became perfectly acceptable?  Do you think Yehovah may have placed some of the responsibility for the death camps on the hands of the good and silent Christians. I wonder.

Before I hear the shouts of how redemptive the forgiveness of God is, let me state:  I am fully aware that forgiveness is in the atoning blood of Yeshua and how a confession of sin brings a generous application of that Blood.   But, 75 years or so after WWII ended and Israel was reborn out of the mouth of Yehovah, many who call themselves Christians are scheming to bring the destruction of Israel to a reality. They desire this simply because the existence of the land and the people does not fit into their doctrine.   They are calling for the boycott of Israel pointing out manufactured human rights abuses as their justification.  They do other things in closed company like trying to demonize the flag of Israel or they point out a conspiracy theory, they may even bring out a copy of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.  They try their best to destroy Israel with their lying and their conniving. These same Christians while ignoring the real civil rights abuse of the likes of Sudan, Syria, Egypt and Pakistan, claim they are unbiased and have no anti-Semitic agenda.  They are stumbling around motivated by the lie that says Yehovah will not restore the nation of Israel on earth.  They believe they alone are chosen of Yehovah and have usurped Yehovah’s first love and are playing the interloper claiming the mantel of “spiritual Israel.”   They try to convince themselves that the nation of Israel is nothing but a mirage.  They do not have the Spirit of repentance which is absolutely required to apply the blood of Yeshua.  No, they do not have the Spirit of repentance; they have rather the spirit of Amalek. They see the plan of God as a plan that must be stopped if the nation of Israel is in the future of Yehovah’s plan, in as much as the people and the land of Israel are a part of that plan.  However, despite the wolves and their pups in the Christian community Yehovah’s plan is going forward.  We who rejoice in the plan of Yehovah watch as the whole world form a confederacy against that plan.  There is a scripture in the Revelation that says that every nation shall wail because of Him even so, amen.    I say, as John in the Revelation, let them wail! Yehovah, arise and have mercy on Zion. Amen

In 1933, Germany was coming out from humiliation, hyper inflation and economic depression.   The German people thought the worst was over.  They had reason to hope for on January 1933 Adolph Hitler became chancellor of Germany.  Change was in the air and change came!  From 1933 to 1945 Germany went from recovery to total destruction, from hope to despair, from freedom to bondage; from unity to division.   Germany went into an abyss and it took forty years to recover.   The rubble of the cities of Germany was collected into great mounds and in many cities such as Munich the German people built parks and even buildings on top of the voluminous rubble.

There was another change from 1933 to 1945:  In 1933 there were few Zionist Jews in Europe, in 1945 it was hard to find a Jew who was not a Zionist.  Yes the Jews that survived the final solution had Zion on their mind.   God has His ways of placing an idea in our minds to achieve His plan.   Blessed be the Name of Yehovah.

Hitler’s coming to power in 1933 was seen as an economic blessing. Hitler had a speech which he gave on February 10th1933 which was inclusive and nationalistic and called for change.   He spoke of change and a shared effort and a new and greater Germany.   The German people were ignoring the situation with the brown shirts, and the constant anti-Semitic rhetoric and the torching of the Reichstag in April.  Yes, in 1933 Hitler received the support of the working class and the elitists and even the educated Jews who hung out at German Universities as professors and students.  They discounted the anti-Semitism as merely campaign rhetoric.  They never saw the death camps and the “final solution” coming.   The ignorance of the “enlightened”Jews was so great they did not wake up until one dark cold night in November of 1938 called kristallnacht or the night of the broken glass.   It was then too late to change course and few Jews got out of Germany.  Their fate was sealed but many Jews who escaped went to Poland with nothing but what little they could carry.  They went to Poland for safety and to flee the reach of Adolf Hitler.  Little did they know that Poland was the waiting room for the gas chambers.  Reality over took them in September of 1939 when Germany invaded Poland and WWII began.   The terror of the holocaust was hidden from the world and made manifest to the Jews.  It was not until 1945 in the rubble of a fallen nation would the world see the unbelievable savagery of the Nazi regime.   The Jews awoke to a new reality and the world wondered about the depth of the evil of the heart of men.   During this period of reflection Israel rose and overcame the holocaust to gather as a nation to the very spot Yehovah promised to gather them.  Israel was assaulted from its inception and upon every assault Israel grew stronger and upon every compromise Israel grew weaker.  Every time Israel was perceived as weak a war ensued.    Funny how Israel’s enemies miss calculate Israel’s strength.  God is in the destiny of Israel, thus, their enemies always lose.  Enemies of Israel who are more than a generation old are buried and arise only when an archeologist digs them up.  But, there are always new enemies that look for the next sign of weakness.  They then take their place in the dust for the pleasure of the next generation of archeologists.    On one of these occasions Israel’s enemies will rise up to the prey, but Yeshua is going to show up and destroy them with the brightness of His coming!   This is the good news of the Kingdom!    You cannot afford to make the mistake of being on the wrong side of this fight.
