Collateral Damage (Two)

Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen. Psalm 44:11

After World War II, many of the Jewish people scattered about the world returned to the land that had been home to their descendents. When the British administrators of that land departed, the Jews were left to fight for their land. Despite the difficulties involved, Israel was reborn. I’ve heard it said by Jews in Israel that there, at least, they belong, for as prosperous as they may have been elsewhere, they were still second-class citizens.

A “True-Born” Gentile Believer renounces his or her worldly citizenship, accepting the second-class status of Christian. In fifty-one nations on Earth, to do so is illegal, and punishable in many of those countries by death.

The True-Born Believers, Gentile and Jewish, are scattered throughout the world. Perhaps we aren’t being slaughtered each day, every day, where we live. Perhaps we think it can’t happen, either. Such were the thoughts of millions of Jews in days prior to Germany’s reign of terror, the days leading up to Kristallnacht

“Kristallnacht, also referred to as the Night of Broken Glass, or Reichskristallnacht, Pogromnacht, and Novemberpogrome, was a pogrom or series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on 9–10 November 1938, carried out by SA stormtroopers and civilians. German authorities looked on without intervening. The attacks left the streets covered with broken glass from the windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings, and synagogues.” (from Wikipedia)

In the days of Noah, people were living ordinary lives, going about their business as if nothing was about to happen. Noah preached righteousness, and followed G-d’s plan preparing for the waters to rise and engulf a world turned against the LORD, the One True G-d.

Lord Bless, Keep, Shine. . .
