“I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! .God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew” (Romans 11:1, 2a).
The history of anti-Semitism is a mile long. The survival of the Jew over centuries is nothing short of a miracle by God Himself! The Spanish Inquisition, the Russians purges, the German Holocaust, just to mention a few efforts to exterminate the Jew, causes one to be amazed at his survival.
Although there are many in the world today who seek to eliminate the existence of the Jewish people, and those who wrongly interpret Christianity to be the replacement of Judaism; the God of the Bible, the only true God, has guaranteed the permanent survival and ultimate thriving of the “apple of His eye,” the eternal Jew! Some day he will have his land back (Genesis 15:1 8ff.). He will live in peace and safety under the protection of the Messiah Himself, the Lord Jesus Christ (Isaiah 11).
Those who fight the Jewish people may seemingly be successful for now; and, the Bible has also predicted that prior to the Messianic era, some very hard times will befall the nation of Israel. But that is not the end of its existence, even as previous history has demonstrated God’s full intent to establish His future kingdom and reign over His own people.
The greatest Jew of all times says so, and His name is Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: may they prosper who love you (Psalm 122:6).
