THE INCOMPARABLE HOLOCAUST – 8 Apr 2013

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel.  This annual memorial gives living eye-witness testimony  to  the truth of the incomparable catastrophe known as the Holocaust, with a capital ‘H’.  There has till now been nothing else like it on a national or ethnic scale, however horribly many people or nations have suffered from the hands of God, devils, or humans.

In the face of so much proof from both victims and perpetrators — and from their descendants — it is not only incredible how there can be so many who deny its actuality, but it also demands of those who do know the truth to speak up and out about it in order to ‘keep truth alive’.  A similar thing occurred not long after the crucifixion and the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ:  despite all evidence attesting to the truth of what actually happened, that truth was denied and suppressed until today, when multitudes are actually dull of hearing and feeling to believe the truth and its condemnation on the one hand, and its redemptive hope beyond all mortal reasoning on the other.   The restoration of the Jewish people as a nation in its land — promised long ago by YHVH to His chosen people — is a revival the like of which is also incomparable with other peoples and lands.

There was an attempt yesterday to ‘wipe Israel off the internet’ by those whose irrational hatred of Israel and the Jewish people have led them to waste their lives and energies on acts of hatred and evil, totally ignoring that it is from the Jewish people and from YHVH, the God of Israel, that all that is good and beneficial to mankind has come.  That terrible things also come through Jewish people should be no surprise to people  that understand the sinfulness of human beings, whoever they be.  There is no ‘mankind’ apart from the truth that the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob/Israel created us in His image and likeness, from which we have all fallen, and to which He calls us to return through repentance and faith in the gospel.   Yeshua/Jesus sows His seed; the devil sows his.  The spirit of antisemitism and of antichrist are both directed against God Himself and His Son. (Ex 4:22; Rom 1:1-5)

The God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) has said, and still says:

“Do not fear, O Jacob My servant”, says YHVH:  For I am with you.  For I will make a complete end of all the nations to which I have driven you, but I will not make a complete end of you.  I will justly  discipline/chastise you, and I will not let you off wholly unpunished.”  (Jer 46:28)

“Truly these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all persons everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained.  He has given assurance of this to all by raising [Yeshua/Jesus] from the dead.” (Acts 17:30-31)
