Mystery of Antisemitism: Why is the Nation of Israel Hated So Much?


The  latest chapter of the ongoing battle between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has caused anti-Israel protests across the world.  Antisemitism has risen globally in Germany, France, and Canada  . In Antwerp, Belgium, one the speakers during a protest chanted on a loudspeaker in Arabic to, "...slaughter the Jews(here)."  This is just one of the examples of the battle between Israel and Hamas in Palestinian territory in Gaza has been ongoing. Is there really a growing trend of antisemitism that is taking place worldwide?







In 2013, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) did a worldwide survey on antisemitism. They found the following results:

Some 70 percent of those considered anti-Semitic said they have never met a Jew. Overall, 74 percent of respondents said they had never met a Jew.
• Thirty-five percent of those surveyed had never heard of the Holocaust. Of those who had, roughly one-third said it is either a myth or greatly exaggerated.
• The most anti-Semitic region in the world is the Middle East and North Africa, with 74 percent harboring anti-Semitic views. Eastern Europe was second at 34 percent. The least anti-Semitic region was Oceania (Australia and New Zealand) at 14 percent.
• The three countries outside the Middle East with the highest rates of anti-Semitic attitudes were Greece, at 69 percent, Malaysia at 61 percent and Armenia at 58 percent.
• About 49 percent of Muslims worldwide harbor anti-Semitic views, compared to 24 percent of Christians.
The West Bank and Gaza were the most anti-Semitic places surveyed, with 93 percent of respondents expressing anti-Semitic views. The Arab country with the lowest level of anti-Semitic views was Morocco, at 80 percent. Iran ranked as the least anti-Semitic country in the Middle East, at 56 percent.
• The least anti-Semitic country overall was Laos, where 0.2 percent of the population holds anti-Semitic views. The Philippines, Sweden, the Netherlands and Vietnam all came in at 6 percent or lower.
• Approximately 9 percent of Americans and 14 percent of Canadians harbor anti-Semitic attitudes.
• Thirty-four percent of respondents older than 65 were deemed anti-Semitic, compared to 25 percent     of those younger than 65. Men polled were slightly more anti-Semitic than women.(source)

The ADL Survey found that at least 26% or 1.09 billion people worldwide held Anti-Semitic attitudes(source).  It looks as if antisemitism is alive and well in the 21st century! It's been less than 100 years since the Nazi Germany Holocaust when a satanic driven Adolf Hitler had over 6 million European Jews killed during World War 2 (source). Ever since ancient times, there have been attempts to totally annihilate the children of Israel off the face of the Earth. Why is that?


Ancient Biblical Times and Past History: Attempts to Annihilate The Nation of Israel 

Queen Esther, King Ashasuerus, and Haman Agagite


We can see this attempt at annihilation as early as ancient Egypt.  The Pharaoh that arose didn't know Joseph and put out a decree to have all the male newborn Hebrews killed (source). Another Biblical example is when the children of Israel/Judah were down in Persia.  Haman the Agagite plotted to have all the Jews massacred.  Had it not been for Queen Esther intervening for her people, the children of Israel would have been destroyed (source).

During the reign of Antiochus Epiphanes, who was a foreshadow of the Anti-Christ, many Jews were slaughtered.  Also, the temple was desecrated, fulfilling the first part of Daniel's prophecy in Daniel 11. In the New Testament we see Herod the Great making a decree to have all males infants two years old and under slaughtered in Bethlehem in order to prevent the Messiah from coming forth (here). Throughout history there are there are examples of antisemitism , such as in the Middle Ages (ie German Crusades, First Crusade , Shepherds' Crusade), and during the Spanish Inquisition.

What is the great mystery of antisemitism around the world? Why is the nation of Israel hated so much? Is there a Satanic agenda behind this madness?


The Spiritual Truth Behind the Mystery of Antisemitism 



The Apostle Paul in Ephesians 6:12 speaks about satanic spiritual Principalities.  These spiritual powers have oversight over nations, cities, and regions in the satanic infrastructure. We can also see that in Daniel 10 it speaks about the Prince of Persia and the Prince Greece.  These spiritual princes are diametrically oppose to seeing the will of G-d fulfilled in the Earth as well as the covenant people of G-d. We see this example in the answer to the Prophet Daniel's prayers.  They were delayed due to a spiritual battle between the archangel Michael and these princes.  The archangel Michael is actually assigned to be the Prince of Israel and the protector of the nation of Israel (source/source). Michael battled against the Prince of Persia and Greece (here). Daniel states in Daniel 12:1, how in the latter days the Great Prince Michael will come to the aid of the children of Israel when they're in great trouble. Who are the princes? What are their functions against the nation of Israel?
           Deuteronomy 32:8-9(Septuagint) gives us a glimpse of the setup of these principalities:

"When the Most High divided the nations, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set bounds of the nations according to the number of the angels of God. And his people Jacob became the portion of the Lord, Israel was the line of his inheritance."

Nimrod brought the people together in rebellion against G-d and His Kingdom in order to build the Tower of Babel.  In response,  G-d confounded their language and scattered them throughout the Earth  (Genesis 11).  He also gave them over to spiritual princes who rule behind the governmental power structure of these nations. Only Israel was given the Lord as an inheritance.  It was He who would rule over the nation of Israel.  All of the other nations that worshiped idol gods were, in essence, worshiping and being ruled by demon spirits (Psalm 96:5; Deuteronomy 32:17 ; Psalms 106:37-38; 1 Corinthians 10:20 ). The primary function for these principalities is to lead the nations that they rule astray from the will of G-d and to oppose His Word.  The Pseudepigrapha writings of the Book of Jubilees 15:31-32 says:

"But he chose Israel that they might be a people for himself. And he sanctified  and gathered them from all of the sons of man because(there are) many nations and many people, and they all belong to him, but over all them he caused spirits to rule so that they might lead them astray from following him. But over Israel he did not cause any angel or spirit to rule because he alone is their ruler and he will protect them and he will seek for them at the hand of his angels and at the hand of his spirits and at the hand of all of his authorities so that he might guard them and bless them and they might be his and he might be theirs henceforth forever."

It is these very principalities that are at work, along with their commander and chief Satan.  They are the ones behind antisemitism!  They really believe that if they can destroy Israel (God's covenant people), the prophesies concerning them, including the ones made all the way back with Abraham, would be null and void.    The main objectives of these "High Ones" is to prevent the full restoration of Israel spiritually, as well as Yeshua's(Jesus')  reign on the Earth as "The Messiah to Israel" and the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

In Genesis Rabbah 56:5 it says the following:

"Here God immediately rewards Israel when Abraham binds Isaac to the altar by binding the princes of the heathens—the angels who served as guardians to the heathen nations—thus making them subservient to Israel. But this fettering only lasts while Israel upholds its part of the covenant with God. When Israel fails to do so, God unfetters the princes, and the heathen nations take their revenge on Israel. (source H. Freedman and Maurice Simon, trans., Midrash Rabbah: Genesis, Vols. 1–2 (London: Soncino Press, 1939).




G-d initially made his covenant with Abraham to make him a great nation and the father of many nations.  He also promised that Abraham's descendants would be given the entire land of Canaan (Genesis 12, 15, 17). Through Abraham]s obedience to offer his only son (a.k.a the son of promise) as an sacrifice to the Lord, the Lord promised Abraham in Genesis 22:18 that in his seed all the nations of the earth would be blessed. Israel was to be representative of G-d to all the nations of the earth, and through Israel,  salvation would come to the nations of the earth.   As we see in Genesis Rabbah 56:5, these demonic princes are restrained against coming to harm Israel because of Abraham's obedience to the Lord as long the nation of Israel upheld the covenant they had with G-d. When Israel failed to keep their side of the covenant. The princes became unrestrained, and the heathen nations took out  their revenge on Israel. We can see the manifestation of the spirit of antisemitism being carried out by the nations against Israel.  Principalities (Princes) are behind the spirit of antisemitism to exact its revenge against Israel.

It is said that Israel was the only nation that accepted the Torah of G-d, thereby accepting the dominion of G-d, and His kingdom on Earth.  However, the heathen nations rejected the dominion of G-d and His Torah.  The end result is that the heathen nations hate G-d and hate Israel as being a representative of G-d (here).


The End of Spiritual Conspiracy of Satan and Principalities Against Israel 

 

Satan and his principalities strive to destroy the nation of Israel.  They really believe by destroying the nation of Israel, it will prevent the second coming of Jesus Christ, overturn their satanic governmental structure that has been in place for centuries, and bring an end to Satan dictatorship of this present world system. They conspire to making mankind believe in lies, and not the Truth of The Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This satanic spiritual government is the master of deception and rebellion. Satan and these Princes stir up antisemitism as an end-game to cause the nations of the earth to be driven by extreme hatred of the nation of Israel.   It is by this hatred that they will attempt to utterly annihilate Israel in the Great Tribulation that is soon to come.

However, Satan and his Princes conspiracy will come to nothing! The Book of Revelation reveals to us that the final outcome is that Satan and his army are defeated by Jesus Christ. Scriptures tell us the end result of Satan and his Princes is the final judgment, and that the final sentencing is the Lake of Fire (Eternal Damnation).


Isaiah 24:21King James Version (KJV)

21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

 

Matthew 25:41King James Version (KJV)

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.

Revelation 20:10King James Version (KJV)

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

  1. Yes, they think they can defeat God and King Jesus but they will not. They want us Christians and the Jews gone. That is the only way they think they will win. Well, they have already lost the war!

    Brother Jerald, I was wondering if you believe in the Rapture. Just wondering. I promise not to preach one way or the other!
