Jesus the Jew

People who hate Jews so much are really going to be surprised when they find themselves bowing to Jesus confessing He is the Lord. Jesus is Jewish. And that "Jew" ascended into heaven. Bodily. It was His Jewish blood that was shed for the forgiveness of sins. Without accepting that Jewish blood, you are doomed. And His 12 Jewish Apostles preached and turned the world upside down for the gospel and gave us the New Testament. Not to mention the Jews who gave us the Old Testament and prophesied of Christ's appearing in this world and the salvation which followed. "Jews" are actually my heroes. They are the prophets and apostles in God's Word. 

Of course there have always been evil Jews as well. We read about them in the Bible too. Judas Iscariot was Jewish. They are not my heroes. And evil Jews today are not my heroes either.

But trying to insinuate Jews are some kind of evil race will only lead to your own downfall. There is no evil race except for the unsaved human race. The human race made up of every different color and type. And any of those people have a chance at salvation. That is why we arm ourselves with the gospel of peace and open our mouths when God opens the door for us to witness to someone.

"After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." Revelation 7:9, 10
