BIN: Does teaching Christians the thorny history of Christian persecution of Jews have the potential to change Christian-Jewish relations? Bob O’Dell, Christian co-founder of Root-Source, a web-based initiative that facilitates Israeli Jews teaching Christians worldwide, thinks so.
He told Breaking Israel News, “If a large number of Christians were to become aware of the extent of the damage done to the Jews by their Christian forefathers, the relationship between [Jews and] Christians would have to change, because the basis for much conversation would change.”
Opinion: Our post from June 27 (here) “Christians Stand Up Against Anti-Israel Bias at 223rd PCUSA” is evidence that entire denominations of Christians may be ready for the literal truth of God’s perfect word.
If three religious leaders, Rev. Dr. Bill Harter, Rev. Dr. John Wimberly and Ruling Elder George Douglas, from a historically anti-Semitic denomination can form a group to oppose the insidious hatred of God’s chosen, maybe, just maybe, others will join in before the final trumpet of the Church age. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
The book of Daniel was written for a time such as this:
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Daniel 12:4
Some Bible teachers say ‘run to and fro‘ refers to rapid travel and ‘knowledge increasing’ is due to the explosion of the internet that is less than one generation old.
Neither Daniel or his immediate readers could comprehend all the prophecy contained in his book, but God indicated that an increased understanding of the prophecies would happen as history unfolded.
“Although I heard, I did not understand. Then I said, “My lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.”
Bible prophecy, to a small but growing group of Bible believers, is being displayed on news sites all over the world while most readers are completely unaware.
And those are the ones we are trying to reach.
