The most anti-Semitic act I know is to so love and honor your Jewish friends that you do not share the gospel with them. I am a Jew and Israeli citizen and, like Paul, would give up my very life for my brethren after the flesh.
In recent years I am grateful for the Christians Bless Israel nights. God knows Israel needs friends and support. But to bless the Jew and Israel and intentionally withhold the gospel on these nights is not Christian.
I am in favor of infomercials that raise money to help persecuted Jews return to Israel. But to take Christian money and not help Jews who believe in Jesus is wrong!
I am concerned about Christians who are more concerned about Jewish roots than Jewish souls.
I am concerned about traditional Jewish rabbis who are exalted on Christian television yet hate Jews who believe in Jesus.
This is the set time to favor Zion. The spiritual scales are being removed from the eyes of Jewish people. But Paul says in Romans 10:
“My heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. ... How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?" (vv. 1, 14).
And we read in Ezekiel 3:
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. ... When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning ... to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand” (vv. 17, 18).
It’s time for the emperor to put on his clothes. Someone has to tell him he is naked.
