Defending God’s Truth in Church Doctrine and Political History – Renette Vermeulen
Some holocaust-deniers, (even preachers like Texe Marrs, whom I respect for his outspoken, fearless exposure of the hidden masonic powers that govern this world,) as well as Marrs-supported writers like Andrew Hitchcock, allege that Hitler and his Nazi Party members did not murder ‘real Jews,’ as they were not ‘really Hebrews of the Dispersion,’ but counterfeits, conspiring to oppress the whole world. [‘Dark Secrets of the New Age,’ Marrs; ‘Synagogue of Satan,’ Hitchcock; ‘Codex Magica,’ Marrs.]
Even if this were true, would these horrendous crimes be more acceptable somehow?
While no one can deny that a strong, antichrist element exists among the Jews (Jn. 1:1-13) – as well as among every other nation - fact remains that the Nazis specifically sacrificed Jews to ‘speed up’ their ‘creation’ of the Aryan god-race.
Besides mourning the alleged 6 million other people whom the Nazis also murdered, we must cry out against this holocaust because the Jewish nation of the Old Testament was (and always will be) God’s only physical nation on earth, and thus, this was a genocidal crime primarily directed at the Most High God Himself. Even though the Jews have rejected His Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, God did not reject the Hebrews or the Jews, but incorporated them in personal salvation through their own faith in, and acceptance of Jesus Christ, (Jn. 3:16; Rev. 5:9; 7:9; Rom. 9:30-31; Rom. chapter 11.)
To condone, therefore, the carnage of Hitler and his Nazi Party members – or any other atrocity and holocaust for that matter - is to violate the Word of God, and to ignore His warning in Rom. 1:32: “Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them.”
Isaiah also warned in chapter 31:2, “He will arise against the house of evildoers and against the helpers [and supporters] of those who work iniquity.”
We can only understand the suffering of the Hebrew nation, dispersed all over the earth, from a spiritual viewpoint.
About 2,500 years before the Jewish holocaust, God’s prophet Ezekiel wrote in chapter 37, “… the Spirit of the Lord set me down in the midst of the valley, and it was full of bones. And He caused me to pass among them, and behold, there were very many human bones on the plain, and behold, they were very dry…”
Israel clung to Judaism, their spiritually dead religion, and insisted that the Romans torture their Savior to death,.
Spiritually, they became dead, dry bones.
Physically, they were dispersed among all the nations of the earth.
And during World War 11, Ezekiel’s prophecy became a startling physical reality.
Words cannot describe the misery the Jews had to endure since that day they rejected Jesus. Israel as a nation was buried among the nations of the world for hundreds of years. But God did not forget them. Intense persecution became the tool that eventually brought them back to their physical country. God allowed this persecution because He is the Good God that turns “all [bad] things for good to those who… are called according to His purpose…” – Rom. 8:27-28.
God promised in Jer. 16:15-17, “As the Lord lives, Who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the countries to which He had driven them, I will bring them again to their land which I gave to their fathers. Behold, I will send for many fishers, says the Lord, and they will fish them out; and afterward I will send for many hunters, [Hitler and other Jew-haters,] and they will hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and out of the clefts of the rocks, for My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from My face, neither is their iniquity concealed from My eyes.”
During World War 11 - hunted, driven, tortured, and murdered - the corpses of millions of Jews literally became a “valley, full of human bodies...”
Some did indeed resist and hid in bunkers, but in the end the ‘hunters’ drove every one of them from ‘the clefts of the rocks.”
God is really a God of His Word!
However, Paul asked in Rom. 11:1-13: “Has God totally rejected and disowned His people [His physical nation, the Old Hebrews, that they could never see eternal salvation [through personal faith in, acceptance of, and discipleship in Jesus] as those from the Gentile nations?] Of course not! Why, I myself am an Israelite… So too, now, there is a remnant selected by God’s grace… [The few Hebrews who sincerely and personally believe in, and accept Jesus as their Christ.] So I ask, Have they stumbled so as to fall to their utter spiritual ruin irretrievably? By no means! But through their false step and transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles [all those from the non-Hebrew nations] so as to arouse Israel to see and feel what they forfeited and so to make them jealous…” Friends, believe me, in the context of all Scripture and the New Testament Covenant in Christ especially, dogmas like the ‘automatic salvation of the Jewish nation’ is an immense lie!
The prophet Ezekiel referred to this restoration of individual Hebrews through their personal faith in Jesus, when he said in chapters 36:24-28 and 37:4, “…O you dry bones… Behold, I cause breath and spirit to enter you and you shall live… For I will take you from among the nations and gather you out of all countries and bring you into your own land… and you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and [those that choose Jesus Christ] shall be My people, and I will be [their] God.”
By 1960, one-sixth of the remaining Jewish population was in Palestine – just as God had promised! As foretold, Israel became a recognized nation “in one day” on 14th May 1948 – between sunrise of one day and sunset of the next, (Isa. 66:8.) However, this is not the ‘automatic salvation’ of the entire Jewish nation as Messianic Judaism teaches. There is Only One Way to Biblical salvation: personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord, God, Savior, and Redeemer, (Jn. 14:6; 1:11-13; 3:3-5.)
Nevertheless, someone had this to say about land of Israel, “Never in the history of the world had such a thing happened before,” because what many of us have witnessed in our generation was the physical restoration of the Jewish nation. Moreover, what we are experiencing in our day is the spiritual restoration of God’s ‘remnant’ of believing Jews, (Rom. 11:5; 9:27; Mt. 7:14.) Jews are coming to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ by the thousands, just as God had promised in Ezk. 37:5-6, “I will… put breath into you [dry bones] and you shall live; and you shall realize that I am the Lord.”
Whenever we discuss God’s dealings with His physical nation, the Jews, we must remember Paul’s warning in Rom. 11:17-21, “If some of the branches were broken off, while you, a wild olive shoot [all those sincere believers from the Gentile nations] were grafted in among them to share the richness of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches and pride yourself at their expense. If you do boast and feel superior, remember it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you… For if God did not spare the natural branches [because of idolatry and unbelief,] neither will He spare you, [the believing Gentiles from all other nations, if you are guilty of the same offenses.]”
God commanded His Old Testament nation, the Israelites, as today, He still commands His spiritual, New Testament nation of believers: “Be holy, for I am holy,” (Lev. 11:44; 1 Pet. 1:16; 2:9-10.)
We can only “be holy” by sincerely believing in, and diligently following the Lord Jesus Christ. By accepting His blood-sacrifice and complete fulfillment of the Law in our place. He indwells all true believers with His Spirit, and therefore we can stand before the Throne of God as if we have never sinned, (Jn. 1:12-13; Gal. 4:6; Rom. 3.)
Be encouraged, sincere believers of the Lord Jesus Christ, God knows the heart, therefore He promised in 2 Chron. 16:8-9, “…Because you relied on the Lord… the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him…”
God will always be faithful to His New Testament nation of believers, those who truly belong to Him. Whatever we may experience in this physical realm, He has promised, “I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake, nor let you down, nor relax My hand on you. Assuredly not!]” – Heb. 13:5; Josh. 1:5-7 – (Amplified Bible.)
