Jesus is a Jew

27 01 2015

six million and oneToday is Holocaust Memorial Day January 27, 2015. Please take at least a moment to remember all those who perished at the hands of the Hitler death machine. Six million Jews and at least five million others were murdered. Yet, God will redeem and has redeemed their suffering as recorded in Psalm 102 (see below).

Yad Vashem, the Jerusalem Holocaust Museum now has an exhibit by Jewish artist Moshe Hoffman that must be seen. It is the picture above this article. His message is profound for Jews and Christian alike. Jesus was a Jew. If Jesus had lived His earthly life during World War II in Europe, Hitler would have dragged Him down off the cross and taken Jesus to the gas chamber and incineration furnace. Jesus was a Jew. He is still a Jew. Christians believe He is the Messiah and is coming soon. When He comes, He will still be a Jew. He is the seed of David of the tribe of Judah.

Please take a moment to meditate on the first half of Psalm 102, the Holocaust Psalm:

 A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed and pours out his complaint before Yehovah.

Hear my prayer, O Yehovah,
And let my cry come to You.
Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my trouble;
Incline Your ear to me;
In the day that I call, answer me speedily.
For my days are consumed like smoke,
And my bones are burned like a hearth.
My heart is stricken and withered like grass,
So that I forget to eat my bread.
Because of the sound of my groaning
My bones cling to my skin.
I am like a pelican of the wilderness;
I am like an owl of the desert.
I lie awake,
And am like a sparrow alone on the housetop.
My enemies reproach me all day long;
Those who deride me swear an oath against me.
For I have eaten ashes like bread,
And mingled my drink with weeping,
10 Because of Your indignation and Your wrath;
For You have lifted me up and cast me away.
11 My days are like a shadow that lengthens,
And I wither away like grass.
12 But You, O Yehovah, shall endure forever,
And the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
13 You will arise and have mercy on Zion;
For the time to favor her,
Yes, the set time, has come.
14 For Your servants take pleasure in her stones,
And show favor to her dust.
15 So the nations shall fear the name of Yehovah,
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
16 For Yehovah shall build up Zion;
He shall appear in His glory.
17 He shall regard the prayer of the destitute,
And shall not despise their prayer.
18 This will be written for the generation to come,
That a people yet to be created may praise Yehovah. 
                                                                                                                                              The correct Hebrew translation of “generation to come” is actually “generation last”, which is the title of my second book. We are the generation that can understand Psalm 102. Selah!

Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name, obscured for 2,500 years, is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!
