Nearing Midnight: Anti-Semitism By Demonic Osmosis - Todd Strandberg - https://www.raptureready.com/category/nearing-midnight/
The study of Bible prophecy has always involved a fair amount of speculation about how world events will play out. God told us precisely what will take place in the future, but we are left to figure out how the prophetic events will progress towards being fulfilled.
Sometimes we get off track by trying to match the current event with prophecy. The Bible's prediction of the rebirth of Israel is the centerpiece of end-time events. For thousands of years, the regathering of Jews to Israel was seen as impossible. To make sense of these prophetic passages, people began claiming that the Church was now Israel.
Another way that we go down wrong paths is by falling into the trap of group-think about prophecy. I think the coming global hatred of Jews is a good example. Adolf Hitler was such an evil monster, his systematic killing of 6 million Jews has become the prototype of how the Antichrist will interact with God's chosen people.
There is a growing hatred of Jews around the world, but it is not the result of a despotic leader. The Nazi party is dead, and there is nothing like it on the world stage. In fact, the social and political climate is incredibly hostile to anyone with a National Socialist mindset. The left has developed a hypersensitivity to anything that can be remotely linked to Nazism.
There is a great amount of anti-Semitism that comes from followers of the Muslim religion. Attacks against Jews in Europe are a huge problem. The vast majority of the time that an anti-Semitic event occurs, the assailant is a Muslim. There doesn't seem to be any logic in why Muslims have such a strong hatred for people they have no direct conflict with. Another thing that doesn't make sense is why so few people in Europe care that these hate crimes are taking place.
Here in America, we have this same disconnect from logical thinking - with Jew-bashing in our own legislative branch. It is a mystery to me how Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar got elected to Congress. When the people of the Detroit and Minneapolis areas put these two Muslim Women in office, I knew their single focus would be on Jews and the State of Israel.
Rashida Tlaib's short tenure in the House has been rife with accusations of anti-Semitism. Most recently, when confronted with the blatant anti-Semitism of Miftah, the Palestinian advocacy group that planned her failed trip to Israel, she dismissed criticism of the group as a "distraction."
Ilhan Omar is equally a Jew hater, and I am stunned by several other moral problems with this woman. There is credible evidence that she was married to her biological brother to enter the US. Judicial Watch says, "Omar may have committed the following crimes in violation of both federal law and Minnesota state law: perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud.
I think the worst example of anti-Semitism in our day is Jeremy Corbyn. He heads the Labor party in England, and he has largely turned a blind eye to a rat's nest of Jew-hating in his own party. In April 2016, a well-known right-wing blog revealed that Labor MP Naz Shah had posted anti-Semitic messages to Facebook a couple of years before being elected. One report revealed that between April 2018 and January 2019 the party received 673 accusations of anti-Semitism among members.
I would not just label Corbyn as anti-Semitic because he has rarely had any kind words for Israel, and he is buddy-buddy with nearly every terrorist group that hates Israel. What makes him noteworthy as a Jew hater is his willingness to stand by and allow anti-Semitism to do tremendous damage to his political organization.
Turkey's Jewish community is still reeling from the content of a video that recently went viral. The video shows what appears to be a summer camp at which young children are being led on an anti-Semitic cheer in Turkish by what appears to be a woman counselor. In the 39-second clip, when the girl says, "The Jews," the women and children reply, "Death!"
The reason why anti-Semitism is seeping into every nation on earth like the osmosis process is because of the spiritual state of the world. As people turn away from God, the influence of the demonic world invades the collective consciousness of mankind. Unless someone is a born-again believer, they are at risk of joining the chorus that chants death to the Jews.
I always end my articles with a scripture verse. Rather than reminding the Jews that dark days are right ahead, I decided to close by focusing on the purpose for this end-time persecution:
"And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son" (Zechariah 12:10).
