The Special People that are the Jews


ask1.jpg

Dear Mr. Soriano,

I love reading books from fiction to historical ones. I often encounter authors who would say that the cause of social ills today globally was brought about by the Jews, from wars to economic crises, due to its vast network of influence that manipulates the string of world events. Nevertheless, these people are the most hated among races deemed inferior by the racist stocks. My question is does the Bible say anything about this present plight or status of the Jews?

Thank you and more power!

Respectfully,

Atty. Alberto Bernardo
Office of the President
Malacañang Palace

 

Dear Atty. Bernardo,

I am glad to hear from people in Malacañang Palace asking questions to me. I have heard, sometime ago, that there was a ‘black propaganda’ against me in Malacañang. There are people in Malacañang belonging to the group of Manalo trying to malign my person, even in the Office of the President. I believe this is true because they (Manalistas) are doing it publicly in television. Anyway, I will be very glad to answer your question.

Your guess or presumption about what the Bible says concerning the Jews is correct. The Jews really are influential people because they are the ‘chosen people’ of God.

(Romans 9:4-5) Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.

Of all the nations that exist during the time of Moses, the Jews or the Israelites were the only people on earth acknowledge by God as His people.

(Deuteronomy 7:1, 6-8) When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou…

For thou art a holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

Although the fewest and the poorest, the Israelites caused a great trouble and defeat of the most powerful empire in the ancient world — the Egyptian empire, who enslaved them for four hundred years.

(Exodus 12:40-41) Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

The defeat suffered by the Egyptians from the Israelites is suspiciously not recorded in existing manuscripts in the history of their empire. As it is a shame for an empire to be defeated by their slaves, we can safely presume that the authorities of Egypt intentionally did not cause it to be written, as it was well elaborated in the Bible; thank goodness a piece of papyrus called “Ipuwer Papyrus” discovered in the early 19th century revealed what happened in Egypt during the days of the Israelites.

———–

In the early 19th Century a papyrus, dating from the end of the Middle Kingdom, was found in Egypt. It was taken to the Leiden Museum in Holland and interpreted by A.H. Gardiner in 1909. The complete papyrus can be found in the book Admonitions of an Egyptian from a heiratic papyrus in Leiden. The papyrus describes violent upheavals in Egypt, starvation, drought, escape of slaves (with the wealth of the Egyptians), and death throughout the land. The papyrus was written by an Egyptian named Ipuwer and appears to be an eyewitness account of the effects of the Exodus plagues from the perspective of an average Egyptian. http://ohr.edu/yhiy/article.php/838

————

This papyrus further affirms the authenticity of the records of the history written in the Bible.

God’s favor to the Israelites started from the time of their father — Abraham — to whom God pronounced His promises.

(Genesis 17:5-7) Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

They were exceedingly loved by God because of Abraham.

(Romans 11:28) As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.

God dwells in them as a people.

(2 Kings 5:15) And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel: now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing of thy servant.

(Psalms 22:3) But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

But they were not ‘favored’ without conditions. God, in His sense of justice, demands their obedience to His laws and statutes.

(Malachi 4:4) Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

If they be willing and obedient, they will enjoy God’s blessings.

(Deuteronomy 28:1-2) And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

But if they will break the covenant, they will be cursed.

(Deuteronomy 28:15) But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee…

Because of their utter disobedience, God left these people sometime after the death of Moses.

(2 Chronicles 15:3) Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

Many times, they lost God’s favor, and made captives by neighboring kingdoms like Babylon.

(Matthew 1:17) So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

During the time of Christ, the Israelites were under the authority of the Roman Empire.

(John 11:48) If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

The same fate happened to the Israelites time and time again because of their disobedience.

(Jeremiah 32:31-33) For this city hath been to me as a provocation of mine anger and of my fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I should remove it from before my face, Because of all the evil of the children of Israel and of the children of Judah, which they have done to provoke me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction.

What happened in the Holocaust to the Jews is just a repetition of what had happened to their forefathers many times in the past — and these are all because of their neglect of God and disobedience to the covenant.

———–

During World War II, Nazi Germany and its collaborators murdered approximately six million Jews. The Holocaust is the name used to refer to this systematic, bureaucratic, and state-sponsored campaign of persecution and murder. Beginning with racially discriminatory laws in Germany, the Nazi campaign expanded to the mass murder of all European Jews

http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/article.php?lang=en&ModuleId=10005143

———–

(Ecclesiastes 3:15) That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

The Jews are surely influential people. They have carved their mark in the history of humanity. They have caused blessings to other people and curses as well.

(Genesis 12:3) And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Some Jews are totally separated from God because of their unbelief in Jesus Christ, the begotten Son of God: the Messiah. They did not accept Jesus and His preaching when He was sent by God the Father in the 1st century of our common era, instead, up to now they are waiting for a messiah.

(John 1:11) He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

They do not acknowledge the authenticity of the New Testament, neither, the books of the New Testament. They believe in the books of the prophets, but they do not accept what the prophet Jeremiah said.

(Jeremiah 31:31-32) Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD…

Their ‘rejection’ of the books of the New Testament or the New Covenant is utterly a rejection of the prophecy of Jeremiah, which they claim to believe.

Really the Jews are influential people both physically ang spiritually. Salvation comes from them.

(John 4:22) Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.

They were the first to inherit the promises and salvation.

(Romans 1:16) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Biblically, their transgressions explain the causes of unrest that besets the people of Israel.

After all things have been said and done about them, the Jews, for me are not inferior people, but a special people.

(Galatians 3:29) And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Sincerely in Christ,

  1. While reading this article, I can’t help my tears. The way Bro. Eli explains how the Israelites found favor from God and later on His Anger is so vivid so clear that both God’s Love and Anger to them is flashing before the screen of the monitor, scenes from the Bible. I posted the same question here before and now find the answer to it…satisfied with heart overflowing. I ask about the Israelites because I felt that there is a need for me to understand the greatness there is to be called “ye are of Abraham’s seed, if ye be in Christ’s”.

    Bro. Eli, is it true that for every soul that you win for God a crown awaits you? Then I can see how rich you would be in the Kingdom of God.

    Thank you Bro. Eli, for the untiring efforts of answering whatever questions we may have, according to the Bible.

  2. Another ultra Informative article.

    What more can you ask for?

    Amazing.

    (Brethren, stay away from public places such as malls. Pray unceasingly. 1 Tes. 5)

  3. Thank you Bro. Eli for educating me again….as always. Every single visit to your site feeds me with countless information. More power and God bless you.

  4. Mr. Bernardo must’ve have read books written by some some Nazi philosopers. So Mr. Soriano hit the bull’s eye upon mentioning the word BLACK PROPAGANDA which was actually used by Hitler to turn German people’s wrath against the Jews:

    “Against the Jews, the Nazis turned their wrath. The Jew, they said, was not an “Aryan.” They claimed that he had “sold out” the Germans in World War I. He was in league, they charged, with “international capitalism.” They held him to be the chief cause of inflation in Germany. In a word, they accused him of causing most of the ills from which the nation suffered. They heaped their troubles on his head. The “non-Aryan” myth fitted into the dogma of the racial superiority of the Germanic stock, one of the fictions spread by the Nazi party “philosophers.”
    -http://www.historians.org/Projects/GIroundtable/Propaganda/Propaganda1.htm

    But then again, come to think of it, it all boils down to religious war

    “Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo, papal nuncio to Germany, talks with Hitler at a formal reception in Berlin in Jan. 1936. Hitler and the Pope had a secret agreement: The Pope would give Hitler ALL the support he needed in the conquest of Russia and Hitler would divide Italy once again and give back the Papal States to the Pope.
    Mein Kampf was ghost-written by a Jesuit priest named Father Staempfle. Hitler the dunce was the tool of much more cunning men. .. . Hitler had only one talent: he was a good public speaker and knew how to harangue the masses.” -http://www.reformation.org/adolf-hitler.htm

    Hitler is a political character, so why would have hoarded hate against the Jews, hmm.. someone else must’ve been behind the massacre… i wonder who?

    “Pope John Paul II has publicly asked God’s forgiveness for the sins of Roman Catholics through the ages, including wrongs inflicted on Jews, women and minorities.”-http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/674246.stm

  5. Mystery! Ask Bro. Eli.

    There is a secret in being a Jew.

    But he is a Jew who is a secret one, whose circumcision is of the heart, in the spirit and not in the letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God.

    The Romans 2:29
    Bible in Basic English

  6. Jews under Judaism prefers to believe that Jesus is not the annointed saviour. Indeed, they failed to recognize the Saviour prophesied in Devarim 18:15 which also states:

    Deuteronomy 18:15 The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him. 16 For this is what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, “Let us not hear the voice of the LORD our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die.”
    17 The LORD said to me: “What they say is good.

    18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.

    19 If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account. 20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death.”

    21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD ?” 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.

    Notice how this was cleared by Peter:

    Acts 3:

    1 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon.

    Peter saw this, he said to them: “Men of Israel, why does this surprise you? Why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 13The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go. 14You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. 15You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. 16By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see.
    17″Now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did your leaders. 18But this is how God fulfilled what he had foretold through all the prophets, saying that his Christ would suffer. 19Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, 20and that he may send the Christ, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus. 21He must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. 22For Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. 23Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people.’

    24″Indeed, all the prophets from Samuel on, as many as have spoken, have foretold these days. 25And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’ 26When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”

    It’s is not too late for a Jew to believe, even for the Gentiles.

  7. ABOUT JEWS?

    A shiny coins is tossed by the Master in the table and one coin is fall to the ground, and when he get back that one fallen shiny coin, he found several muddy and rusty coins with the same value of the coins at the table.

    “Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?” (Luke:15:8)

    “And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. ” (Luke 15:9)

    EYES

  8. Eureka!

    Thank God for satisfying my heart and mind with an answer for question which I have long been waiting for light coming from the Most Sensible Preacher of our time.

    Actually, I also have posted a quite similar question before but maybe because of the work overload that Bro. Eli has, I wan’t that fortunate like Atty. Bernardo.

    Well, I think Atty. Bernardo and I have some things in common and one of them is about our passion for books dealing with history. I also read conspiracy theory materials. That’s why I came to know different secret societies which I’m not so sure whether these are or just some of them are really in existence or not.

    Famous of these orders are the “Illuminati”, “Wisemen”, Freemasons, etc. And Jews are always implicated in their activities according to some authors. Some would also say that changing new world orders were brought about by Jews. Even the powerful financial institutions, defense industries, political parties or movements are held by the these so-called “Elders of Zion”. There is also one theory that even the Roman Catholic Church and several Protestant denominations are partly, if not totally, controlled by the Jews.

    I hope Bro. Eli could make any comment on this. Thank you.

  9. GLORY AND HONOR BE TO GOD. Peace be with you Bro Eli, and fellow bloggers. It is not for us to question why GOD, in all HIS POWER AND WISDOM made a special people of the Jews. The verses mentioned by Bro Eli are satisfactory and clear, In order to humble the mighty, the wise, and the rich, GOD has called for the JEWS who were then few, poor and ‘nothing’ as compared to the mighty and powerful nations of the times, but who never aknowledged and recognized HIM. The biblical episode that the Jews underwent is a manifestation of GOD’s LOVE. The reason that up to now, even if the Jews transgressed HIS Commandments, GOD, true to HIS promise, has still reserved salvation for the Jews that will repent and finally accept GOD. The MYSTERY and GREAT WISDOM of GOD is too high and hard for man to understand, but thanks we have Bro Eli who does not mind the threats to his life and just keep on preaching GOD’s TRUTH no matter what the enemy does. Thank you so much Bro Eli, please go on, because we are sure that many are reading or are listening to your voice, including some people in the seat of power in the Philippines, in Malacanang Palace, whose powerfull occupant we pray will get the message, and once and for all institute changes for the sake of TRUTH, and JUSTICE, instead of remaining a ‘captive’ of the inc-ni-manalo, and the other false churches.

  10. I had to admit I find it hard to fully understand the words being used in this website but I force myself to do so by searching the meaning of each words that are unfamiliar to me.

    I believe that Bro. Eli takes great responsibility and importance to such questions whether it may be in our dialect or in english, you would find that his enormous efforts of carefully explaining the answer so that they may be enlightened by the words of God!

    Praise be to God!!!

  11. My opinion:

    After Christ there was a religious bickering between Jews and Christians. The Judeo-Christians wanted the management of the temple in their hands. The apostles wanted to change Judaism according to the liberal teaching of Jesus. Jesus accordingly said that; “The good news must be preached only to the Jews.” Any contrary opinion to that is believed to be an insertion in the bible.

    When Paul was converted to Christianity, he preached his own branch of Christianity to the gentiles. He wanted to separate Christianity completely away from Judaism. Paul wanted to hijack the belief of the Jews. When it says that; “Salvation is within the Jews.” He change it that it is in the practice of Christianity that people will be saved. His teaching of religious hatred towards the Jews was carried through all of the Christian world.

    • I hope my opinion in this thread is still valid as some of the postings here will take us back to the year 2007. I would like to comment on the opinion of Rudy. I think Rudy has a better idea than the rest.

      After Christ there was really religious bickering dividing the Jews and the Christians. But before the time of Christ there was a religious war between the Jews and the Greeks who were the followers of Alexander the Great. This war was recorded in the book of the Maccabbees. The Maccabean Revolt happened because the Greeks wanted to force the Jewish people to be converted to the Greek religion of multiple deity. The Jews resisted and they won.

      After years of bickering some of the Greeks were agreeable in the Jewish belief of monotheism but refused to follow Judaism as a whole because of the Jews strict adherence to their religious laws and traditions which are not easy for the Greeks to follow. So they deviced a new stratagem by writing the New Testament using Jesus as the end of the Laws of Moses. The New Testament as I see it is a discourse against the Jews and Judaism.

      Paul a hellenistic Jew was converted to Christianity and he was the one who preached the Christian faith to the gentiles. This is also the start of preaching hate against the Jews. To the trained eye; verses of hatred in the N.T. can easily be spotted. For example is; 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16. These are verses saying that the Jews killed Jesus and their Prophets. These are lies! Because it’s hard for a Jew to kill another Jew and this Jewish attitude is still visible until today. Paul as a Jew is hard for him to write hatred against his own people which is why according to some bible scholars these verses in 1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 are believed to be biblical interpolation.

      The Jewish people are a united people which is why their survival is exceptional. The 2,000 years of hatred against the Jews climaxed in the Holocaust.

  12. Dear Bro Eli,
    Your topic has answered my question of long ago as to whether the Covenant of God to Abraham still holds true up to the present time and as I realized in your article even up to everlasting. It also confirmed my conclusions that this (Covenant) is also the very reason why the Jews no matter how small nation cannot be destroyed totally or wiped out by their enormous enemies but reversed and those Jews of different nationalities are so pwerful and influential in any country where they are mostly being leaders, rich and owners, proprietors or holders of most if not all big business conglomerates in the world that in any way (one way or the other) these Jews can influence world events such as economy maneuvering (business and currency manipulation, dictating or influencing prices of commodities), wars, rise and fall of any nation, science and technology, etc. The thing that puzzles me this time are the co-heirs to salvation that due to their disobedience the Gentiles are grafted wild olives to the branch and considered as adopted sons of Abraham and heirs to salvation. Now, aside from salvation, do these Gentiles enjoy the same privilege as the Jews with regards to material wealth, etc? If yes, in what way? If no, then why? If these Gentiles as adopted sons to salvation alone are not entitled to material wealth as the Jews, is this also God’s justice? Another, Are Wealth and influence as promised by God to the Jews make no difference whether they are good or bad? Are the enemies of the Jews realized the God promises to Israel? In any way (yes or no) why they still insist to fight to destroy Israel? Please explain.
    Thanks and regards,

  13. Bro. Eli, the question of Alfredo (comment #15) is I think interesting. I know that there is no question that you can’t answer through the Bible; but, I also know that your time is very limited. I hope you can find a time to answer Alfredo’s question. ssD

  14. Paul reminded the Christians not to look down upon the Jews. The Jews are just the natural olive branch, and we are grafted into their branch. If our foundation is mistreated or destroyed, it will hurt or kill the branches. God also plans another trip to Israel in the second coming, where he redeems his people Israel finally. It will be a joyful union of a long persecuted people with their God.
