Could it be they are a people group, a nation, that God established for His purposes and that the Prince of this World, Satan, is intent on destroying them to prevent them from fulfilling His purposes?
What about the horrors of Auschwitz and the Jewish Holocaust? It is hard to comprehend how six million Jews could be exterminated and the German people and even the church were silent.
How many people do you know that understand the truth of the following Scripture?
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
Children at an Iranian Islamic school in North London were taught to sing a song about massacring the Jews. What is behind this madness, this evil, except for demonic forces?
The UK’s Jewish Chronicle (JC) recently exposed an Iranian propaganda video shot about a mile from the New London synagogue in which school children sing a horrific song about killing Jews.
The British paper received access to a video filmed several months ago, showing dozens of children ages 8-15 in the Islamic Republic of Iran School (IRIS) in London, standing in rows and mouthing lyrics that pledge an “oath of loyalty as a warrior and servant” to the Mahdi. The Mahdi is a messianic figure in Islamic belief who is to appear at the end of times to rid the world of evil and injustice. “It is antisemitic to its core”, he said, “because it holds that before the Mahdi can return, Israel must be destroyed and all the world’s Jews put to death.”
In the video, boys, and girls aged eight to 15 pledge their allegiance to Ayatollah Khamenei, leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Over the course of the last several months, Khamenei’s regime has overseen the massacre of protesters demonstrating against the murder of Mahsa Amini, who was killed while in custody for not properly wearing the hijab.
According to Kasra Aarabi, who oversees the Iran Programme at the Tony Blair Institute, the doctrine summarized in the song “is antisemitic to its core” and is the foundation of Iran’s policy.
Israel is surrounded by hostile nations all intent on its elimination and yet their judgement is foretold.
“Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations, and gather yourselves there. Bring down your warriors, O Lord. Let the nations stir themselves up and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations... The Lord roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth quake. But the Lord is a refuge to his people,
a stronghold to the people of Israel.” ” Joel 3:11-12,16
