December 1: Christian Anti-Semitism: Jewish Exile

-Exile

The Hebrew word for “nation” is “goy” (plural: goyim).  According to the Bible, there are only two groups of people, regardless of their ethnicity or national identity.  Jews and the nations, or Jews and the goyim.  God warned that one day He would scatter the Jews among the goyim.

First the Northern Kingdom was exiled into Assyria; then the Southern Kingdom was exiled to Babylon.  These exiles were specific.  But over the years, the Jews dispersed throughout many nations.

When King Cyrus allowed the Jews to return some remained where they had gone.

By the time of Yeshua, we see that there were Jews in many nations.  But Israel was still inhabited by many Jews.

Acts 2:5, 9-11

And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven…Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs. (NKJV)

However, the Roman exile was a complete exile of all Jews from their homeland.

This exile is also called “the diaspora,” a term which is used today to describe any Jew who lives outside of Israel. Regardless where a Jew is born or lives, his homeland has always been Israel.

Today the nations and the Church are arguing about the “rights to the land” but history and the Bible prove that the land of Israel belongs to the God of Israel and He has given it to the Jewish people as an inheritance.

Renounce the lie:

God has broken His Covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by giving the land to the Nations (or the Church).

 

Replace with the truth:

Psalm 89:34
My covenant I will not break.
Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips. (NKJV)

 

After AD 135 Jews have been exiled from country after country. Sadly this picture shows them having to leave the Gaza strip in 2005 as a result of a “Land for Peace” initiative.
