Anti-Semitism is arguably the strangest phenomena in existence. What is the driving force behind it? The world’s population presently exceeds 7 billion people, but Jews make up less than 1% of that number. What is it about Jews, that is so strangely unique, that billions of people feel a type of animosity or even contempt for them?
#1. There is a villain on the loose in the universe, whose name is Lucifer/Satan/The Devil/The Deceiver. Many people do not believe in the existence of Satan, but they would agree, that there is much evil in the world. Evil does not accidentally exist. There is an evil person who perverts righteousness and his name is Satan. Satan hates humans and he has built a career around killing, stealing and destroying humanity. Of all the people-groups in the world, Satan hates Jews the most, and he spreads this hatred like a cancer.
#2. Almighty YaHVeH promised Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that through them would all the nations of the earth be blessed. It is human nature for siblings to be jealous of one another. All the other tribes and nations of the earth are jealous that the Almighty chose Israel instead of them to bless the earth.
#3. The Holy Bible was given to us by Almighty God through the people of Israel. In its pages the Almighty reveals His plan to send the Messiah into the world. Satan hates this and has attacked Israel much on account of it. In the Book of Micah 5:2, the Prophet Micah under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit prophesied, that the Messiah would be born in the Jewish town of Bethlehem, and that He is the Eternal One. (read it for yourself)
#4. Christ the Messiah made this very strange statement in the Book of John chapter 4: “Salvation is of the Jews.” Did you know that Christ was a Jew? Christ was born into the tribe of Judah in the Jewish town of Bethlehem. This event changed the course of human history. Satan hates the thought of a Savior rescuing the souls of men and he has persecuted Israel again and again for their part in bringing the Messiah into the world.
#5. In the Book of John 14:6, Yahshua Jesus claimed to be the exclusive way to heaven. The other religions of the world hate the fact, that Yahshua Jesus said there was no other way to heaven.
#6. Yahshua Jesus is the most famous Jew in all of history. Jesus Jew died on the cross for the sins of you and me in A.D. 33.
#7. Three days later, Jesus Jew rose from the dead exactly as He prophesied that He would. No other person in the history of the world has ever accomplished this impossible feat.
#8. Because Satan is the king of sinners, they hate what he hates: Jews, the King of the Jews (Yahshua Jesus), and the disciples of the King of the Jews (Christians). Because man is a fallen being and every man, woman, boy and girl is born with a fallen nature, they don’t understand their own rebellious nature against the truth. This hatred is a spiritual hatred and can only be discerned spiritually. Fallen man cannot discern this hatred. Only through knowing Christ on a personal level will anyone ever regain what mankind lost in the Garden of Eden through sin.
#9. The enemies of the Jews also want the Land of the Jews for themselves. This includes the holy city Jerusalem, which is the exact center of the world.
