United States politicians support Israel, financially and politically, Evangelical Christians also support Israel, for biblical reasons, yet a large percentage of white Americans and Europeans, British and others, are vehement antisemites and for whatever reason persecute Jewish people and the concept of Zionism.

This is the international atmosphere since the Holocaust (1933-1945), when Germany persecuted and committed genocide of millions of Jewish people, and the establishment of Israel as a Jewish State in 1948 and the colonization of Palestinian territories in the years afterward unto this day. However, the animosity toward the Jews has a long history dating back to ancient, biblical times.

The nation of Israel has always been either captive to another nation or seen conquering them through wars of religious purpose. Rather a person sees Israel from a biblical standpoint or purely from a political standpoint, the Jewish people have always been the brunt of international resentment.

One reason is because they have always been a prosperous nation. Financially blessed with land and goods they inherited from a promise made to them by the God of Abraham and because they are seated on lands that were rich in resources. Their main battles were against the Palestinians over the lands of the Middle East and its oil rich reserves and the lands in northern Africa, rich with gold, diamonds, and other natural resources.

These wars were fought for thousands of years between Israeli, Arab, and African nations. When Rome intervened, they took control of many of the regions by war and forced tribute upon the lands and nations of the middle east and afterward they themselves gained access to all the riches and resources of those lands. This continues to this current time age.

From a biblical perspective

Israel was constantly warned by God that if they did not worship and obey Him, He would deliver them into the hands of their enemies; be it European, Arab, African or some other Gentile nation. This punishment is seen throughout the history of the world in the very wars they have fought and the lands they have lost, and gained, over time.

But there is a specific time period that all this came to an end for Israel and their special relationship with God. The Abrahamic covenant with God ended at the birth of their Messiah, Jesus Christ, and a new covenant began, the scripture reads: “Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.” Daniel 9:24.

This was the end of the Law of the commandments and began the covenant of faith unto righteousness and the age of grace. From this point, the covenant was to the entire world and all the Gentile nations that God would from there on establish his promise of salvation. It was during this time in history that Israel was under Roman rule and Christ was crucified. God had had enough of the disobedience of Israel and turned to the other nations to offer His promise.

So, God blinded the minds and hearts of the Jews and turned them over to unbelief. In addition to their unbelief, he enriched them with the riches of the world to keep them occupied until He was done gathering in the Gentile nations, which is still happening. This is why Jewish people are some of the wealthiest people in the world currently and have been since their rise after the death of Christ.

“(according as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, And a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, And bow down their back alway.

I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?” Romans 11:8-12.

The Gentile nations of today are rich with God’s blessing of salvation and have become the children of the new covenant given the mysteries so long as they believe in Christ Jesus. However, although the Jews have been blinded does not mean God has cast them away permanently. “I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid.” Romans 11:1.

What the believer of Christ should be doing today is praying for Israel. “Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.” Romans 10:1. We do not have to show support of Israel by financially or politically supporting them like the Evangelical Christians do or the European nations do by supplying and protecting the Zionist lands. This is not required by God at all.

The only thing the Bible and God ask us as new covenant believers to do is pray for Israel, yet at the same time not discounting them as cursed or as rejected by God. The Bible warns against that, which reads: “Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: for if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.” Romans 11:20, 21.

Concerning the persecution of Blacks and Jews

Most of the discourse has been about the nation of Israel and the Jews, the Palestinians and the Arabic nations, and Rome and the European nations; but what about the African nations where it pertains to the covenants and promises of God?

Africa has always been in the promises of God. The African people (the Canaanites and the children of Ham), are an offspring of the children of Israel. They are the seed of Abraham born to the Egyptian woman Hagar, whose son was called Ishmael; God said: “And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.” Genesis 17:19,20. So, technically, biologically, some tribes of Africa are of Hebrew decent, but not all.

Nevertheless, the children of Hagar were not heir to the promise God made with Abraham’s son Isaac, because they were the children of the flesh. They were rich, however, in land and resources throughout the continent of Africa, which was taken captive by the Europeans over time. “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, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.” Romans 9:6-8.

Many Blacks are teaching that Black people are the true people of God and the true Jews, but this is only partially true because as stated above, the son of Ham, the Canaanites were born of Abraham seed, but they were not the child of Sarah, but of Hagar. If a child is born of the father by a mistress, though they be his seed, that child is not the seed of the mother who is married to the father. Abraham, however, had no children to any Gentile nation.

The persecution of Blacks and Jews come as a result of the new covenant promise given to the Gentile nations; Europe being a Gentile nation itself and jealousy being a major factor. Though they have the promise of the new covenant, they are doing exactly what the scriptures says not to do, which is boast against the branches. Again, the scriptures read: “Be not highminded, but fear: for if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.” Romans 11:20, 21.

The persecution of Blacks and Jews by Gentile nations will result in those nations losing their promise and risking damnation because they are not walking in faith, but in the flesh. In the case of white Americans who maintain dominance by persecution and cruelty over Blacks and Jews, they are in transgression of God and will be punished during the time of tribulation, and the times of the abomination of desolations.

“And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.” Daniel 11:31. This means that during the time of tribulation, the enemies of Israel – Magog of Gog, and other Gentile nations - will gather together and overrun the Holy Land to destroy the nation of Israel and the concept of God. This is seen today in the acts of hatred toward Jews and the wars over the territories of the Gaza Strip and surrounding lands, including lands of Africa.

Regardless of whether a person believes in the prophesies of the Bible or not, current news and international turmoil spell out the last days and the coming tribulation for the world. More Gentile nations are taking control over spiritual lands and peoples and are persecuting the ideas and concepts of God. The last stronghold for claimed Christianity is the United States, unfortunately, the Christian church in America is corrupt and overrun with false doctrine, cloaked antisemitism and hate toward people of color and other nationalities.

“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, And shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:” Romans 11:25, 26.
