“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!” Matthew 23:37.
Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist state is the tragedy of Western Christianity laid bare. The strange, eschatological view of Protestants (and some Roman Catholics) towards Jews is nothing new. It was very much at the heart of the Puritan dictatorship in this country, and certainly the principal ideological force in Oliver Cromwell’s decision to reverse Edward I’s pious edict of 1290. And just as Oliver Cromwell’s government was financed by Jews so too is Donald Trump’s. The Puritan idea was that the conversion of the Jews would bring about the Second Coming of Jesus. Rubbish. The Jews do indeed have an eschatological rôle but it won’t be a benevolent one, and, except in rare cases, Jews cannot be converted to Christ. When they “return” to Jerusalem, and rebuild their temple, then the Sanhedrin will elect a false messiah who will not bring about Christ’s Second Coming but the grievous reign of the Antichrist, whose rabbi vassals will be given supreme lordship over the goyim. The United States is just facilitating this, partly because of the evangelical vote (and the evangelical money pouring in) but mostly because the United States government is controlled by Jews.
All we can do is pray. Pray against the Evil Empire over the sea; pray for the conversion of the Jews (for with God all things are possible); and, in this Nativity fast, pray with the three holy youths: O Ananias, Azarias, and Misael, bless ye the Lord: praise and exalt him above all for ever: for he hath delivered us from hell, and saved us from the hand of death, and delivered us out of the midst of the furnace and burning flame: even out of the midst of the fire hath he delivered us.
