“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing” (Matthew 23:37)

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes. (Romans 10:1-4)

When we think of Christians being persecuted, we normally think of countries such as Afghanistan, China or North Korea but seldom do we think about Christians getting persecuted in the holy land itself. I went to Israel a few years ago (by the way, I would recommend every Christian go there at least once in their life) and went down to the Wailing Wall where many of the orthodox Jews gather to pray. Even though there was a part of me that had the utmost respect for these Jews, the other side was sad that they were still blind and waiting for the Messiah when he has already come in the person of Jesus (Yeshua) Christ.

Below are some videos to give you an idea of what some of the Jewish Christians have to live with in Israel

As Romans 10:1 says, please pray for the nation of Israel that they may be saved

    I love Israel, and I love the Jews, as they are our heritage. Yet, to see that they persecute those who believe in the Messiah just makes me so sad.

    If only they knew that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah! And I am also so sad that despite all that they profess to know about Scripture and study it day and night, they are so blind and do not see.

    I believe Israel’s troubles today are because they refuse to recognize the Messiah, but God has promised that He shall surely bring them back and they shall know that Jesus Christ, whom they stubbornly refuse, is their Messiah.

    Shabbat Shalom.

    This should be on YouTube also.
    I can’t believe that is has so few comments.
    Israel for Jews only, is what the Germans/Nazis tried in Germany.

    You think the Jews would have learned a lesson, and maybe they have, but not the Zionists.

    Peace

    Hello Alan-

    I am interested in using the top video in the context of a worship service–its focus on Jewish persecution of Christians eerily parallels the first century. But the video will not allow me to click through to its source on Google Video. Do you have the original source? And would you permit me to use it? If you could email me at andrewsheffATgmailDOTcom, that would be great.

    Thanks!

    I live in Israel for 15 years, I am jew. Is INCREDIBLE how the state of Israel persecute christians (as many other religions that are not orthodox judaism). The persecution is doing openly trougth “anticult organizations”. Very very sad. poor people. Even I am not a christian was painful for me to see such an injustice.

    “Yashu (Jesus) was sexually immoral and worshipped a brick,” Sanhedrin 107b.; “Yashu was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness and refused to repent,” Sotah 47a; “Miriam (Jesus’ mother) the hairdresser had sex with many men,” Shabbath 104b…. from Jews most holy book Talmud.

    In August 2006, The Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism was issued. The Declaration categorily reject Christian Zionism as being ‘anti-Christ’: “We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as false teaching that corrupt the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation,” wrote Latin Patriarch Michael Sabbah of Jerusalem and other local heads of churches in Jerusalem.

    “Christian Zionism is a movement within Protestant fundamentalism that sees the modern state of Israel as the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and thus deserving of political, financial and religious support. Christian Zionists work closely with the Israeli government, religious and secular Jewish Zionist organizations, and are particularly empowered during periods when the more conservative Likud Party is in control of the Knesset. Both the secular and religious media place Christian Zionism in the Protestant evangelical movement, which claims upward of 100-125 million members in the US. However, one would more accurately categorize it as part of the fundamentalist wing of Protestant Christianity, since the evangelical movement is far larger and more diverse in its theology and historical development,” Professor Donald Wagner , North Park University in Chicago.

    There are numerous Christian organizations on Jewish Lobby payroll for generating religious and political support for the Israel where their Christian brother and sisters are treated like thrash. One of such groups is the Church Ministry among the Jewish People (CMJ).

    Stuart Littlewood has exposed the CMJ in an article titled “Holy mackerel! Christians must love and defend Israelis, preaches church mission”, saying:

    “Some say the CMJ encourages the physical restoration of the Jewish people to the biblical Land of Israel despite the suffering this causes, and published statements seem to confirm it. CMJ is also accused of propagating Zionism rather than Christianity.

    Ready for the bombshell? The CMJ was adopted as an official ministry of the Church of England in 1995. It has been operating in the shadows for 15 years. So is this the Church of England’s official Zionist wing? Within the Church it is said that some believe the mission to Jewish people is inappropriate. Others maintain that Jewish people cannot be excluded from the scope of Christian mission….”

    Ironically, both Israelis and Evangelists are exploiting each other for their crooked beliefs. Israel needs these Christian religious jealots to keep its grip over American nation – while the Evangelists believe that gathering of world Jewry will hasten the second-coming of their Lord Christ – whose biblical mission is to convert Jews to Christianity and the Jews who still refuse to accept Jesus as the “Promised Messiah”, would be put to sword.

  10. Uttar says:

    I am not christian. I am a jew that live in Israel for 23 years. I can tell you that organizations like “Lev La achim” or”the Israeli Center for Victims of Cults” persecute people who preach in Israel any religion that is not orthodox Judaism. The problem is that this people have friends in the media, in the police, in the government even judges and loyers. I was wittnes of how this organizations can put in jail innocent people or can really broke their reputation in order to destroy him. Is really horrible that the world really don’t know this face of Israel. People all over the world think that Israel is a democraccy open to any religion but the reality is so far.

    George, thanks for this video. Unfortunately, because of the profanity, I have had to remove it

    Israel is a country of religious persecution !!!

  13. Mikael says:

    They’re also trying to erase the armenian quarter in Jerusalem… sad story indeed for the jews. They’re following the steps of nations that harmed them in the past.

  14. J Murphy says:

    To see the Jews persecuting Christians in this way is a re-enactment of their treatment to Christ and the earl Christians. A nation that has suffered great persecution should learn from its mistakes. I love Israel but it is horrible to see such bigotry action. Clearly they are afraid.
    They are the nation that rejected God and his prophets over their precious religion. Shame on them. Israel went into captivity on numerous occasions for rejecting God and His messengers and His precious son. I pray for their forgiveness and their repentance. Their actions go against God
