Moses and Jesus prophesy Israel’s disobedience and destruction

To those who believe in Jesus and support Israel:

If you believe Moses was a prophet, and you believe Jesus was a prophet, and is our Savior/Messiah, and if you believe the Holy Bible is inspired Scripture, why do you NOT believe what all of these have said about Israel? And why do you believe the opposite?

I am perplexed… have you not read the Holy Bible? For example, you support the Jewish state of Israel, but why? Did you never read where the prophet Moses foretold the disobedience of the children of Israel before the entered Canaan? How the Israelites did not keep the covenant with God which he made with them at Mount Sinai? and how they brought the curses, and not the blessings, of the covenant down upon them, which is what the Prophet Moses foretold?

“When Moses had finished writing the words of this law in a book to the very end, Moses commanded the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD, “Take this Book of the Law and put it by the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against you. For I know how rebellious and stubborn you are. Behold, even today while I am yet alive with you, you have been rebellious against the LORD. How much more after my death! Assemble to me all the elders of your tribes and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears and call heaven and earth to witness against them. For I know that after my death you will surely act corruptly and turn aside from the way that I have commanded you. And in the days to come evil will befall you, because you will do what is evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to anger through the work of your hands” (Deuteronomy 31:24-29).

Rather than keeping the covenant, and keeping the land, the Israelites broke the covenant and brought down upon themselves the curse of God, which God warned them he would do when they entered the covenant with them:

“But if you will not obey the voice of the LORD your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you…” (see: Deuteronomy 28:15) ““And the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known. And among these nations you shall find no respite, and there shall be no resting place for the sole of your foot, but the LORD will give you there a trembling heart and failing eyes and a languishing soul. Your life shall hang in doubt before you. Night and day you shall be in dread and have no assurance of your life” Deuteronomy 28:64-66).

Regarding the prophet and Messiah Jesus, he cursed the leaders of Israel seven times before pronouncing the temple, and Israel, bereft of the presence of God, until they learn to call upon Messiah in humility and repentance:

“Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, so that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. Truly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not! See, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord’” (Matthew 23:31-38).

The Apostle John tells us who antichrist is:

“Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son” (1 John 2:22).

A study of basic Judaism reveals the Jews disbelief in Jesus as Messiah, the Christ of the living God:

“Jews do not believe that Jesus was the mashiach. Assuming that he existed, and assuming that the Christian scriptures are accurate in describing him (both matters that are debatable), he simply did not fulfill the mission of the mashiach as it is described in the biblical passages cited above. Jesus did not do any of the things that the scriptures said the messiah would do.” See:http://www.jewfaq.org/mashiach.htm

The Holy Bible also tells us who the Whore of Babylon is, if we will allow the words of Jesus to guide us, and not attempt to force our meaning upon the words of Scripture:

Of Babylon, the Apostle John tells us:

“And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth” (Revelation 18:24).

Of Israel, Messiah Jesus tells us:

“[S]o that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar” (Matthew 23:35).

Likewise, if we allow the Scriptures to interpret the Scriptures, we discover the Abomination of Desolation was not, and is not, a mystery to those who, as Jesus said, understand the meaning of Daniel’s prophesy:

“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath” (Matthew 23:15-20).

“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it (Luke 21:20-21).

The abomination that makes desolate was the fulfillment of Jesus prophecy concerning the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem by the Roman armies, which surrounded Jerusalem and laid waste to the Jewish temple and the city, making it desolate in the year 70 AD, within the lifetimes of those who heard Christ’s prophecy (= “this generation).

  1. Indeed, rather than trying to bless or reform Israel, from the beginning Jesus announced his new kingdom, where he would be king over an international kingdom of disciples. For Israel had filled up its sins and was ripe for judgment (from Rome).
    Some today also like to quote God’s blessing to Abraham (in Gen. 12)–that blessing Abraham brings blessing on us–and apply that today to the U.S. blessing Israel. But again the New Testament speaks of fulfillment of this blessing on a new level. In Gal. 3, Paul says the blessing to Abraham has been fulfilled through his one offspring, Christ, so that in Christ the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Gal. 3:8-14). In other words, the promised blessing is now said to be the Spirit given to those believing in Christ, including Gentiles (as well as some Jews).
