November 7: Christian Anti-Semitism

In the new church in Galatia, men came from Jerusalem and attempted to put the new Gentile followers of Yeshua, under the laws of Moses.  This was called “Judaizing.”  Paul’s letter responded to those false teachers, reminding the Galatians that in the spiritual realm all people are the same. 

Galatians 3:27-29

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (NKJV)

But let’s consider…there IS a difference.  The difference is in the natural (physical realm) not in the spiritual world.  Certainly there is a difference between men and women.  For instance, in procreation, do then not have different roles?  Same with slaves and free.  In like manner, Jews and Gentiles have different roles in the plan of God.

PRAY JEWISH AND GENTILE FOLLOWERS OF YESHUA WILL ACCEPT AND REJOICE IN THEIR UNITY AND UNIQUENESS IN GOD’S PLAN.

Nazis gleefully cutting the sidekicks off a Jewish man…the sidekicks a symbol of his devotion to God. His humiliation was numbed by fear.
