God made a covenant promise to Abraham to bless his offspring, and to make them a blessing to the world. And of course, as soon as the devil heard this, he focused his hatred on the Jewish people, their promise land, and their promise Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Anti-Semitism is still alive and well on this planet. It didn’t stop with Hitler’s death, but is in full swing today. Boycotts against Israel are a regular practice of the Palestinian movement; they boycott anything to do with the Jews. But it seems harder and harder for them to come to grip with their own dilemma they have created with their boycotts…
For example, the pro-Palestinian crowd loves to get on Facebook and rant and rave against Israel. Commonly using their profanity-laced attacks on Jewish people, yet it never dawns on these “geniuses” that Facebook was invented by a Jew, not to mention the fact that the operating systems on most of their computers were also invented by the Jews.
Just last month (May, 2013), to show his support for the Palestinian movement, the world’s “smartest man”, Stephen Hawking, announced he too would be boycotting Israel by not attending a conference there. Hawking is a renowned physicist who sadly is confined to a wheelchair due to a horrible disease that keeps him from movement or even speaking. He uses a computer device that detects his eye movement, allowing him to “type” out words and then is translated to speech.
What is so embarrassing is that Hawking’s computer runs on the Intel Core i7 chip that was designed by Intel’s lab in Israel! Duh….
No word on whether Hawking is going to pull the plug on this life-saving device from Israel, but I doubt it.
I have a message that I get to preach once or twice a year on the covenant promises to bless the world through the Jewish people. It is nothing short of astonishing to see how some of the most powerful inventions to save lives and bless lives have been invented by the Jews. From world-renowned scientists, such as Albert Einstein and Carl Sagan, to the top movie producers, such as Steven Spielberg and George Lucas – and a nearly endless list of names of people who have influenced our world are JEWS! (Not to mention, the great Law giver, Moses, and our Savior; the Lord Jesus Christ – both Jews!)
Speaking of movies, the actress playing Superman’s biological mother is Ayelet Zurer. She is an Israeli movie star, born in Tel Aviv. So, Man of Steel will be added to the long list of movies that Israel haters will add to their list to boycott and picket. It is all kinda stupid, if you ask me. By the way, the film opens today in Egypt, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates.
Most of these people use cell-phones, which was invented by a Jew. Most of them use instant messaging, invented by a Jew, most use virus protection on their computers, which was invented by a Jew. I could go on, but you are getting my point.
The hatred of Jews is explainable. God chose them to bless the world. And anytime God makes a promise, hell is going to try and prove Him a liar. It’s no coincidence that they are one of the most hated of people of all time. Yet they can’t be stopped.
And I won’t be too shocked if this post will generate a few hateful responses as well.
But, I’m not concerned. God also promised in that covenant with Abraham to bless those that bless the Jewish people, and curse those that cursed the Jewish people. (See Genesis 12:1-3)
So, I’m gonna keep believing God’s Word and watch it being fulfilled before our eyes! Keep your eyes on Israel and your heart on His Word!
May God bless you!
