Hitler—Who Put Him in Power?

Hitler—Who Put Him in Power?

(Edited by Angela R; textual error correction by Janie)

Introduction

Hitler was a murderer of the Jews. His life became dedicated to their annihilation. Did he come to power by a fluke of history, by successful political activities, or was he put into power by the act of Israel’s own God?

Simple Deductive Reasoning

If the Biblical scriptures are Truth infallibly delivered by a God, then it is the responsibility of a Believer to believe that the words accurately describe both the God and the accounts of His works. If one believes that the God of the Bible exists, that person necessarily must believe in every aspect of that God described in the Bible. Believing that a god exists who only shows some of the aspects of the God of the Bible is not believing in the God of the Bible.

All other gods that humans claim and use show some of the aspects of the God of the Bible. Many of those aspects are convenient for each person’s level of comfort.  Few believe the Biblically described fullness of the character of Israel’s God as He is described.

If the God of the Bible exists, He always acts with very clear and stated reasons (even if a reader misses those reasons or doesn’t like them). He always refuses to do what He refuses to do with the same clear and stated reasons. He doesn’t overlook anything by accident or by being too busy. If He overlooks, it is intentional.  If He doesn’t respond, it is with purpose.

If this God exists, He always keeps His promises. He has listed His promises in the Tenach (the Hebrew and Chaldee ‘Old Testament’), and He has entrusted the Tenach to the very People victimized by the Holocaust. If they have not understood why He did what He did, and if He didn’t do what they thought He certainly should have done, they have the volume that explains everything.

No unbelieving Jewish person has a right to blame the God of the Bible for anything that happens; that would be illogical and nonsensical. How can one blame a non-existent god, and how can one blame a god in whom he doesn’t believe? That is as illogical as an atheist saying, “God damn it!”

Three Rabbis of history, Moshe, Yeshua and Saul/Paul, cannot be ignored if one will arrive at the answer to questions that haven’t been satisfactorily answered about the Holocaust.

I will interchangeably use Jews and Israelis in this document. They are the same regardless of the countries in which they have citizenship.

Do Jews Desire to Know Why the Holocaust Occurred?

Jews are excellent researchers. (They are excellent in so many things, that this has also been used as an excuse for Gentile jealousy.) Yet, there seems to be one area of research that just doesn’t exist: the relationship between the God of Israel, the prophecies given to His People Israel, and the Holocausts of history. This research should be more important than fighting cancer, since Holocausts include the slaughter of millions of Jews; yet there is silence on this matter… the very silence that hauntingly opposes the slogan, “Never Again!”

Three Warnings

Anyone who knows Yehovah’s actions in the Bible will see the parallels of what occurred in Hitler’s day with Israel, and what occurred in the Bible with Israel. What might appear to be missing are the prophets warning the Israelis to turn or be slaughtered. While this may appear to be the case, it isn’t.

Some who survived the Holocaust of Hitler spoke of warnings the Jews were given from two of three sources:

  • Traveling Rabbis warned that the Holocaust was coming, and warned Jews throughout the small communities to leave.
  • Those hating the Jews told them to leave or remain and be slaughtered. Their enemies were very open and vocal about the slaughter that was coming if the Jews didn’t leave.

The third warning source was in Jewish hands for centuries: the Torah. It spoke about how Yehovah would drive the Israelis from land to land as refugees if they didn’t do according to all the words of the Torah. Thus, we have the problem: in what ways were the Jews not doing according to the Torah?

Israel’s Identification and Group Identification

What is Israel?

When I write and speak using Israel, I mean the following:

  • All those who are genetically descended from Jacob: specifically, from Jacob’s sons
  • All those who have bound themselves to Israel from the races to live as an Israeli among the Israelis, and thus have taken on the same responsibilities and liabilities as the Israelis. I mean Jews by both of these explanations.

What I do not mean are those who follow Replacement Theology, the view that God has chosen a ‘new Israel’ to replace the original Israel for whatever reason. Such beliefs are antagonistic to the honesty of God.

The term Israel also refers to the Land known as the Land of Israel (not located in Utah, but rather in the genuine Middle East), and it also refers to Jacob himself.

The Individual and the Group

Yehovah views individuals and their actions in one way, keeping a record for their individual judgments. He views the entire group in another way. Every person that is part of a group will be judged as part of that group when judgment is poured upon the group.

If one Israeli (Jewish person) sins, all Israel has sinned. This becomes evident in Joshua:

Joshua 7:1 The children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing. For Achan son of Carmi son of Zabdi son of Zerah of the tribe of Judah took of the accursed thing. And the anger of Yehovah was kindled against the children of Israel. 2And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, that is beside Bethaven on the east side of Bethel. And he spoke unto them, saying, “Go up and view the country.” And the men went up and viewed Ai. 3And they returned to Joshua. And they said unto him, “All the people shall not go up, but about two or three thousand men shall go up and smite Ai. Don’t make the people labour there, for they are few.” 4So about three thousand men went up there from the people. And they fled before the men of Ai. 5And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men, for they chased them before the gate unto Shebarim and smote them in the descent. Therefore the hearts of the people melted and became as water. 6And Joshua tore his clothes and fell to the land upon his faces before the ark of Yehovah until the evening—he and the elders of Israel. And they put dust upon their heads. 7And Joshua said, “Alas, Lord Yehovah, why hast Thou at all brought this people over Jordan? To deliver us into the hand of the Amorites? To destroy us? Had only we had been content and dwelt on the other side Jordan! 8Lord, what shall I say when Israel turns their backs before their enemies! 9For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear and shall surround us and shall cut off our name from the land! And what wilt Thou do unto Thy great Name?” 10And Yehovah said unto Joshua, “Get thee up! Why liest thou thus upon thy faces? 11Israel has sinned! And they have also transgressed my Covenant that I commanded them! For they have even taken of the accursed thing! And they have also stolen and also dissembled! And they have put even among their own stuff! 12Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies! They turned the backs before their enemies because they were accursed! And I will not be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you! 13Up! Sanctify the people! And say, ‘Sanctify yourselves to tomorrow! For so says Yehovah Gods of Israel, an accursed thing is in the midst of thee, Israel! Thou cannot stand before thine enemies until ye take away the accursed thing from among you!’”

This standard of Yehovah will always be maintained, and thus it is true today. The idea that Israel is a unit is part of Biblical faith. The Israelis are their brother’s keepers, like it or not, if the Bible is Truth.

Yehovah judges groups as they become vile in history. All individuals will also be separately judged according to their works. These two judgments are not the same.

Yehovah is aware of the righteousness of a few righteous individuals in Israel while Israel is sinning. That doesn’t mean that the righteousness of the few will avert Yehovah’s wrath. He will deliver the righteous as He desires when He is judging Israel; this occurred a number of times in the Bible. Those righteous still suffer; many relatives died from Yehovah’s wrath, bringing much mourning on all who were left.

Authorities

The Higher Authorities

Romans 13:1 Every being shall be subject unto the higher authorities. For there is no authority but from God. The authorities that are are ordained under God. 2Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God! And they who resist shall receive condemnation to themselves. 3For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. Wilt thou, then, not be afraid of the authority? Do what is good, and thou shalt have praise from the same. 4For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do what is evil, be afraid! For he doesn’t bear the sword in vain. For he is the minister of God, a revenger to wrath upon him who does bad. 5Therefore ye have to be subject—not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6For for this cause, pay ye tribute also. For they are God’s ministers attending continually upon this very thing. 7Render, therefore, to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute, custom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honour to whom honour. 8Owe no man anything except to love one another. For he who loves another has fulfilled the Torah.

This text teaches the following:

  • No human has authority in this world unless that authority comes to that very person from God.
  • All authorities in this world are ordained under God. This goes to the highest-ranking dictator and king to the lowest-ranking assistant to the principal at a small local school.
  • Resisting the authority is resisting the ordinance of God.
  • Yehovah will find guilty the person who resists the authority.
  • Rulers desire their people to do right. (Sometimes, what they think is right is actually wrong.) They are a terror to those who do bad.
  • The Bible commends doing what is good, guaranteeing that a person who does so will obtain praise from rulers.
  • Those in authority are ministers of God to the citizenry for good—that is, for benefit.
  • Those in authority have the right to bear and use the sword.
  • Those in authority are ministers of God.
  • They are avengers to wrath upon those who do bad.
  • Those who fear God will be subject for two reasons: for the outcome of wrath if they are not subject, and to avoid violating their consciences before God.
  • One who fears God must give tribute (taxes) to the authorities.
  • Those in authority continually attend to their ministry.

A reader of the Bible who believes its contents will either read or conclude that Yehovah raises all to rank and lowers from rank when He chooses. All the powers that exist are from Yehovah, no exception.

Yehovah gives individuals rank in order for them to benefit. That doesn’t mean that they will benefit, and it doesn’t mean that they won’t be murderers. He still raises them to benefit. He made Adam to serve the soil. That doesn’t mean that Adam determined to serve the soil.

Yehovah sometimes gives peoples leaders that they fancy. He did it with King Saul, and He did it with Hitler. Hitler was not elected; he stole his position. Yehovah put him there because both the Germans and the Jews in Germany had a view of education and of might that gave them illusions. They did not believe the Scriptures (with very few exceptions), and Yehovah sent them a leader that was according to their own fancies or fears.

What if the authority commands one to do wrong?

If the authority commands one who fears God to do wrong, the Saint must refuse to do wrong. Yehovah is also an authority, and He has higher rank than those in power on earth! Therefore, one must obey Yehovah.

Daniel 3:12 “There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These men, king, have not regarded thee. They don’t serve thy gods or worship the gold image that thou hast set up.” 13And Nebuchadnezzar in rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. And they brought these men before the king. 14Nebuchadnezzar spoke. And he said unto them, “True, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego? Ye do not serve my gods or worship the gold image that I have set up? 15Now, if ye be ready—that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery and dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye shall fall down and worship the image that I have made. And if ye don’t worship, ye shall be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace the same hour! And who is that god that shall deliver you out of my hands?” 16Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego answered. And they said to the king, “Nebuchadnezzar! We are not careful [reluctant] to answer thee in this matter. 17If it is, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning, fiery furnace, and He will deliver out of thy hand, king. 18But if not, be it known unto thee, king, that we will not serve thy gods or worship the gold image that thou hast set up.”

Nebuchadnezzar’s response to this was great anger, but the furnace incident soon cooled him. These men did not resist the authority. They knew very well that Yehovah had set up Nebuchadnezzar from previous prophecies. They didn’t resist his authority; they refused to sin against God. There is no conflict in these two actions. They showed respect to the king and the authority of the position their God had given him. They showed a fear of God that was greater than the threat of the loss of their own lives.

The Bible gives several cases where folks refused to do wrong while not resisting the authority of the ones that Yehovah placed into power.

Midwives

One particular pharaoh commanded the Israeli midwives to drown boy babies. The following is a very literal rendering of the text from Hebrew:

Exodus 1:15 And the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives (the one whose name is Pretty and the second whose name is Groan)─ 16and he said, “When ye child the Hebrews [fem.], and ye shall see upon the stones. If he is a son, and ye shall kill him. And if he is a daughter, and he shall live.” 17And the midwives feared the Gods. And they did not, just as the king of Egypt spoke unto them. And they made- the children -live. 18And the king of Egypt called to the midwives. And he said to them, “Why did ye this speech and have made- the children -live?” 19And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrews [fem.] are not as women of the Egyptians [fem.]. For they are alive there! Before the midwife will come unto them, and they childed!” 20And Elohim good-did to the midwives. And the people multiplied and strengthened very-much! 21And he was. For the midwives feared the Gods. And He made houses to them. 22And Pharaoh commanded to all his people, saying, “Ye shall cast every son childed riverward! And ye shall make-live every daughter.”

These midwives lied to Pharaoh. They didn’t arrive late; they arrived on time. They didn’t resist the authority of the Pharaoh by organizing a rebellion against his rule.  They feared Yehovah and refused to violate their consciences; they refused to obey his command to commit murder. Yehovah saw their works, and He built them houses.

Herod, a wicked man, commanded the astrologers who visited Yeshua almost two years after His birth to find Yeshua and report back to him so that he could go to worship Yeshua. Yehovah, the higher authority, warned those astrologers to not report back, but to leave another way. The astrologers obeyed Yehovah, the higher authority. If a person will think along the lines of military rank, clarity of mind in difficult situations will be much greater, and the person will have far fewer ethical/moral conundrums to solve.

Are All Rulers a Terror Only to Those Who Do Bad?

Some rulers suffer from paranoia and/or various levels of insanity. They don’t know good from bad. The issue isn’t whether those rulers are right or wrong in their viewpoints; they go after those whom they see as evildoers. They therefore hunt out their enemies and all that they think are colluding with their enemies to murder them and do atrocities against them. Thus, those rulers prove themselves to be a terror to many who are actually doing good.

Those who fear Yehovah will know that such rulers are evildoers, but still will recognize that their authority has been ordained by Yehovah. Thus, the wise fearer of Yehovah will do whatever that person can to be of benefit to victims, knowing that he or she will risk losing his or her own life in the process. Sometimes leaving the land to avoid being killed will be the wisest thing.

Did Yehovah Put Hitler into Power?

The obvious answer from the above texts is yes. Anyone who does not acknowledge this cannot go further in this document, because this is foundational to Truth from the Word of God. Yehovah put that future murderer into power.

God and Punishment

Did He Bring Hitler to Power to Punish the Israelis?

Yehovah’s Fury

Yehovah was furious with Israel. That is the only conclusion that fits the Bible. Whenever enemies come against Israel and when Israelis (Jews) have no power to stand before those enemies, Yehovah is furious. The question is, why? Why was Yehovah so angry with His People Israel? I will propose reasons for Yehovah’s anger later in this document.

Specific Punishments

Yehovah’s punishments are always announced, specific, and very targeted. He does not punish the innocent with the guilty. He never has. He is the God of justice.

Yehovah’s anger at Israel and His pouring out the cup of His fury isn’t an issue of punishment, however, since that is reserved for the Lake of Fire and Sulfur. (Punishment is intentional harm or destruction as vengeance leveled against a person or a group for a crime that cannot be rectified.) Yehovah does guarantee earthly retribution against a group for the accrual of sin. He describes this collection of sin as wine in a cup. As members of a race or people sin, the wine fills. Once the cup is full, He forces the group to drink the wine of His wrath. This is true for the People of Israel, and it is true for the other races and peoples.

When Yehovah chastens Israel, all the Israelis suffer; they are all together one People, and Yehovah treats Israel as such. Chastening is always for corrective purposes, never for vengeful purposes.

Yehovah chastens whom He loves. Yehovah loves Israel. That does not mean that He loves every member of Israel. His love is as specific as His other characteristics. He does not love everyone. A person who is a worker of iniquity does not have His love; He hated Esau (a worker of iniquity). Those of Israel who work iniquity are worse in His eyes than those of the races who work iniquity; Israel is His property (if the Bible is Truth).

Was Yehovah chastening Israel?

Foreknowledge

Yehovah is never caught off guard. He always knows what each person will do in every act of life. This is what foreknowledge means.

Foreknowledge about Hitler

Yehovah knew that Hitler would be a murderer in advance of Yehovah’s raising him in rank and power. Yehovah never caused that man to use his bitterness to slaughter the Jews and others. Yehovah knew what he would do, and yet Yehovah gave Hitler opportunity to lead the peoples under him with wisdom to solve the problems of the terrible economy under which Germany suffered. Instead, Hitler used the tools at hand to build a Jew-killing war machine.

Hitler for Benefit

He didn’t bring Hitler to power to punish the Israelis; He would have done that personally had that been His objective. He brought Hitler to power to do benefit, but He knew that Hitler would do exactly what Hitler did, and He knew that the faiths among the Jews would fail them when they needed strength the most. Yehovah had warned Israel in the Tenach (‘Old Testament’), but the Israelis didn’t understand the warnings this way.

Why did He bring Hitler to power?

Did Yehovah Participate in Hitler’s Murders?

Yehovah has placed every ruler into power in every place throughout the world, in history and in the future. Claiming that Yehovah participates in the murders they do because He put them into power is claiming Yehovah’s culpability for all sin. If this is the case, Yehovah is also a liar. If it isn’t the case, Yehovah is never responsible for what His creatures do when they violate His commands.

Yehovah is never a participant in sin. He never causes or propagates sin, and He doesn’t sin. Just because Yehovah knows the future doesn’t mean that His foreknowledge causes what will happen in the future.

Thus, Yehovah did not participate in Hitler’s murders.

When Yehovah Commanded the Annihilation of Races, Was That Sin?

Yehovah has the right to give life. He has the right to take life. It isn’t a moral issue, since Yehovah the Creator owns all and owes no one anything. He is not in debt. If His creatures become vile, He has more than the right to give them time to turn from wickedness, and then command their deaths when they (as a race) do not turn.

Humanists do not acknowledge the right and authority of the real God to do this, since they value (or claim to value) life above the ethics and morality of any god. They will only live on this earth for a few years, and the worms will claim their bodies, but the God of the universe will live, and has both the right and the authority to give and take life.

Did Yehovah Command Hitler to Commit Murder?

Yehovah not only didn’t command Hitler to commit murder, but Yehovah commanded against murder.

Genesis 9:6 Whoso sheds man’s blood, his blood shall be shed by man. For He made man in the image of God.

He will turn the judgment of Hitler over to the Saints before Hitler is cast into the Lake of Fire and Sulfur.

1 Corinthians 6:2 “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world?”

Why Did Yehovah Raise Up Hitler?

Yehovah has always raised rulers so that they can do good.

Romans 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good.

He never raises them up to do any form of evil (referring to moral/ethical sin).

The German economy was in such a terrible state that some were starving. Rulers have an obligation to benefit their people. Hitler could have benefited his people; instead he chose means that involved violence, and later murder. Yehovah gave him no mandate or right to use these means. He could have done good for his people with the skills he possessed; instead, he declared war against many of his own citizens in order to take their goods to fund his drive and bitterness against the Jews. Even his going to war with Poland would not have been a wrong. Had he treated the Polish peoples and the Jews well, he would have been greeted in a much better way, and would have gained the means to turn the German economy around.

The question as to why Yehovah raised up Hitler becomes a question of Yehovah’s view of His own people at that time. Several things must be established from the texts to see what was occurring. One other question must first be raised.

Is it Contradictory to Say That Yehovah Brings a Nation against Israel That Will Slaughter and Destroy, But That Yehovah Does Not Command Murder?

Whenever Israel forsakes Yehovah’s Covenant to live like the surrounding races, He gives Israel into the hands of her enemies and does not fight for Israel or bring deliverance. Yehovah gives the warring enemy power over Israel. Warfare is not murder, according to the Bible. Thus, murder and war are not the same. If the enemy captures Israelis, however, and then slaughters them without reason, the enemy is committing murder, and Yehovah sees that as such.

Yehovah never commands murder. When Israel walks contrary to Him and forsakes His Covenant, He will not intervene in many cases, and wicked haters of Israel will slaughter without Yehovah’s interference. Yehovah is not in any murder, and He will judge murderers as murderers. Yet, Yehovah does temporarily abandon Israel into the hands of enemies if He is furious with Israel, and He will not provide protection except in isolated cases. He has guaranteed that He will be Israel’s protection if Israel will keep His Covenant according to His view of keeping that Covenant.

The Torah

The Torah Threats

Discovering reasons for what occurred between Yehovah the God of Israel and the Jews during the Holocaust requires viewing texts in which Yehovah is furious with Israel. These texts will also tell why He is furious.

The following texts are just the threat texts; they are located in the Torah right next to the blessing texts, but I am only considering the threat texts at this time.

Any reader who uses one set of texts to prove a point and dismisses the texts that would disprove the same points is an intentionally deceitful reader. I am not doing this. I do not dismiss the blessings. Instead, it is my faith that the entire plan of Yehovah depends on the Salvation of Israel, on the restoration of Israel, and on Israel becoming the supreme power on the planet for a thousand years. Nevertheless, I will not ignore texts that are threatening toward Israel if Israel does wrong. Even the religious folks in Israel have usually ignored these texts except on the High Holy Days of Israel. This is a major reason why Israel has continually reverted to doing wrong. After reading them, the rest of the year is spent in normalcy (wherever they are in their traditions, ethics and morality).

Leviticus 26:14 “But if ye will not hearken unto me and will not do all these commandments, 15and if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhors my justices so that ye will not do all my commandments, and ye will break my Covenant, 16I also will do this unto you: I will even appoint terror over you, consumption, and the burning ague that shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17And I will set my face against you! And ye shall be slain before your enemies. They who hate you shall reign over you, and ye shall flee when none pursues you. 18And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your sins. 19And I will break the pride of your power. And I will make your heavens as iron and your earth as copper. 20And your strength shall be spent in vain. For your land shall not yield her increase, and  the trees of the land shall not yield their fruits. 21And if ye walk contrary unto me and will not hearken unto me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins. 22I will also send wild beasts among you that shall rob you of your children and destroy your cattle, and shall make you few in number. And your ways shall be desolate. 23And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me, 24Then I will also walk contrary unto you and will smite you yet seven times for your sins. 25And I will bring a sword upon you that shall avenge the quarrel of the Covenant. And when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you. And ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver your bread again by weight! And ye shall eat, and not be satisfied. 27And if ye will not hearken to me for all this, but will walk contrary to me, 28Then I will walk contrary to you also in fury! And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. 29And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons; and ye shall eat the flesh of your daughters! 30And I will destroy your high places and cut down your images. And I will cast your carcasses upon the carcasses of your idols! And my being shall abhor you! 31And I will make your cities waste. And I will bring your sanctuaries unto desolation! And I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours. 32And I will bring the land into desolation. And your enemies who dwell therein shall be astonished at it. 33And I will scatter you among the races. And I will draw out a sword after you. And your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. 34Then the land shall enjoy her Sabbaths as long as she lies desolate. And ye are in your enemies’ land. Then the land shall rest and shall enjoy her Sabbaths. 35As long as she lies desolate, she shall rest. For she did not rest in your Sabbaths when ye dwelt upon her! 36And I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies, upon them who are left of you. And the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them! And they shall flee as fleeing from a sword. And they shall fall when none pursues. 37And they shall fall one upon another as it were before a sword when none pursues. And ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38And ye shall perish among the races. And the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands. And they shall also pine away in the iniquities of their fathers with them.”

Deuteronomy 28:15 And he shall be, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of Yehovah thy God to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes that I command thee this day, that all these curses shall come upon thee and shall overtake thee. 16Cursed art thou in the city, and cursed art thou in the field. 17Cursed is thy basket and thy store. 18Cursed is the fruit of thy body and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine and the flocks of thy sheep. 19Cursed when thou comest in, and cursed when thou goest out. 20Yehovah shall send cursing, vexation, and rebuke upon thee in all that thou settest thine hand to do until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly because of the wickedness of thy doings by which thou hast forsaken me. 21Yehovah shall make the pestilence cling unto thee until He has consumed thee from off the land where thou art going to possess her. 22Yehovah shall smite thee with a consumption and with a fever and with an inflammation and with an extreme burning and with the sword and with blasting and with mildew. And they shall pursue thee until thou perish. 23And thy heavens that are over thy head are copper, and the land that is under thee is iron. 24Yehovah shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust. It shall come down upon thee from the heavens until thou art destroyed. 25Yehovah shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies. Thou shalt go out one way against them, and shall flee seven ways before them. And thou shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. 26And thy carcass is food unto all fowls of the air and unto the beasts of the earth. And no man shall fray away. 27Yehovah will smite thee with the botch of Egypt and with hemorrhoids and with the scab and with the itch whereof thou cannot be healed. 28Yehovah shall smite thee with madness and blindness and astonishment of heart. 29And thou shalt grope at noonday as the blind gropes in darkness. And thou shalt not prosper in thy ways. And thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore. And no man shall save. 30Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her. Thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell therein. Thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. 31Thine ox is slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof. Thine ass is violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee. Thy sheep is given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue. 32Thy sons and thy daughters are given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look and fail for them all the day long. And no might is in thine hand. 33A race that thou knowest not shall eat up the fruit of thy land and all thy labours. And thou shalt be always only oppressed and crushed 34so that thou shalt be insane for the sight of thine eyes that thou shalt see. 35Yehovah shall smite thee in the knees and in the legs with a sore botch that cannot be healed from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head. 36Yehovah shall bring thee and thy king that thou shalt set over thee unto a race that neither thou nor thy fathers have known. And thou shalt serve other gods there: wood and stone. 37And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb and a byword among all races whither Yehovah shall lead thee. 38Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather little in, for the locust shall consume it. 39Thou shalt plant and dress vineyards, but shalt neither drink the wine, nor gather. For the worms shall eat them. 40Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint with the oil. For thine olive shall cast. 41Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity. 42The locust shall consume all thy trees and fruit of thy land. 43The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high, and thou shalt come down very low. 44He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him. He is the head, and thou shalt be the tail. 45And all these curses shall come upon thee and shall pursue thee and overtake thee until thou art destroyed because thou didn’t hearken to the voice of Yehovah thy God to keep His commandments and His statutes that He commanded thee. 46And they are upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed forever 47because thou didn’t serve Yehovah thy God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart for the abundance of all. 48Therefore thou shalt serve thine enemies that Yehovah shall send against thee in hunger and in thirst and in nakedness and in lack of all. And He shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck until He has destroyed thee. 49Yehovah shall bring a race against thee from far—from the end of the land as the eagle flies, a race whose tongue thou shalt not understand: 50a race of fierce countenance that shall not regard the person of the old nor show favour to the young. 51And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle and the fruit of thy land until thou art destroyed, which shall not leave thee grain, wine or oil, the increase of thy kine or flocks of thy sheep, until He has destroyed thee. 52And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates until thy high and fenced walls in which thou trusted come down throughout all thy land. And He shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land that Yehovah thy God has given thee. 53And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters that Yehovah thy God has given thee, in the siege and in the straitness wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee. 54The tender and very delicate man among you—his eye is evil toward His brother and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children that he shall leave 55so that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat. For he hath nothing left him in the siege and in the straitness wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. 56The tender and delicate woman among you who would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness—her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom and toward her son and toward her daughter 57and toward her young one that comes out from between her feet and toward her children which she shall bear. For she shall eat them for lack of all secretly in the siege and straitness wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates. 58If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this Torah that are written in this scroll so that thou wilt fear this glorious and fearful name: Yehovah thy Gods, 59then Yehovah will make thy plagues and the plagues of thy seed miraculous: great plagues and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses and of long continuance. 60And He will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt that thou feared. And they shall cling unto thee. 61Also every sickness and every plague that is not written in the book of this Torah, Yehovah will bring them upon thee until thou art destroyed. 62And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of the heavens for multitude. For, thou would not obey the voice of Yehovah thy God. 63And he shall be, as Yehovah rejoiced over you to do you good and to multiply you, so Yehovah will rejoice over you to destroy you and to bring you to nothing. And ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess her. 64And Yehovah shall scatter thee among all peoples from the one end of the earth even unto the other. And thou shalt serve other gods there that neither thou nor thy fathers have known: wood and stone. 65And thou shalt find no ease among these races. And the sole of thy foot shall have no rest. And Yehovah shall give thee there a trembling heart and failing of eyes and sorrow of mind. 66And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee. And thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have no assurance of thy life. 67In the morning thou shalt say, “If only it were evening!” And at even thou shalt say, “If only it were morning!” for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes that thou shalt see. 68And Yehovah shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships by the way of which I spoke unto thee: “Thou shalt see it no more again!” And there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for slavemen and slavewomen, and no man shall buy!

The above two texts are loaded with threats to the Israelis if they do not obey the Torah—the Teaching of Yehovah. Yehovah owns them. Being owned (the real and only meaning of holy and sanctified) means that they cannot live secular (unowned) lives. They will live such lives, but they will later be cut off from Israel.

The Cups

The Bible describes cups that are filled with the wine of the wrath of Yehovah:

Psalms 11:6 He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest upon the wicked: the portion of their cup.

Psalms 60:3 Thou hast showed Thy people hard things. Thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

Psalms 75:8 For there is a cup in the hand of Yehovah. And the wine is red. It is full of mixture. And He pours out of the same! And the dregs thereof—all the wicked of the land shall wring them out, drink.

The Bible describes these cups in other texts. Every race and people-group have such cups. Whenever folks in each race and group sins, wrath in the form of wine is dropped into the cup. Once the cup is full, Yehovah causes the race or people to drink from that cup containing His wrath. Many are slaughtered from this. Yehovah waits a long time while this cup fills. If the violence is very great and very often, the cup fills faster.

Israel has such a cup. When it becomes full, Yehovah normally forces it down the throat of Israel. The Jews then experience another Holocaust, another exile or another successful attack by enemies with great mistreatment and contempt until the cup is entirely emptied and Yehovah’s wrath is at least abated. The cup then starts to refill. If any group turns from its doings that Yehovah views as sinful, Yehovah stops the cup’s filling. Its fill level remains where it was, and nothing is done until the same group again begins to sin.

The people of Nineveh experienced the cup’s fill level coming right up to the brim, and then going no higher for a time since they turned from their evil actions (see the Biblical book of Jonah). They were only forty days away from Yehovah’s destroying Nineveh by their cup being poured out when Yehovah stopped it because they stopped what they were doing. As soon as they began to do evil again, the filling recommenced.

Back to the Curses

Yehovah vowed as part of the Covenant that He would do the above curses if Israel refused to do according to all things written in the Torah.

If individual Israelis don’t believe in the Torah or in Yehovah the God of Israel, they can provide their own reasons for the continuing Holocausts of history; their reasons won’t make any sense, however. No race has ever been so persecuted so continually (with breaks between for reproduction) for such a long time, and yet has continued to exist!

Since the vast majority of Israel has no concern about the Torah or the God of the Torah, if the Torah is Truth, the Israelis have a very long and dreadful future before the great time of continual peace will come. If it isn’t Truth, they have nothing to fear except the regular fiats of anti-Semitism that crop up for no really good reason except jealousy.

If the Torah is Truth, however, it would be wise for folks to consider what in the world brings Yehovah’s wrath on Israel when He is furious.

Rotating Holocausts

Just because Israel is safe from permanent annihilation doesn’t mean that Israel is safe from great slaughters throughout history. As noted above, Yehovah has promised those great slaughters, and He wrote those promises within the Covenant given on Sinai. While the promises of God necessitate the existence of all twelve (actually thirteen) tribes of Israel, that doesn’t mean that a major portion of Israel cannot be slaughtered. Ten of the tribes of Israel will be slaughtered in one event, and then will be raised from the dead back to mortal life (so that they can have more children):

Ezekiel 37:1 Hand of Yehovah was upon me. And He exited me via the Spirit of Yehovah. And He rested me in the midst of the valley. And she is filled: bones! 2And He crossed-me-over upon them around, around. And behold, very multiplied upon the faces of the valley! And behold, very dry! 3And He said unto me, “Son of Adam! Will these bones make-themselves-live?” And I said, “My Lords Yehovah, Thou, Thou knew.” 4And He said unto me, “Prophesy upon these bones! And thou shalt say unto them, ‘The Dry Bones! Hearken-ye! A speech of Yehovah!’” 5 “So said my Lords Yehovah to these bones, ‘Behold, I am bringing into you a spirit! And ye shall live! 6And I will give sinews upon you! And I will make-ascend flesh upon you! And I will overspread skin upon you. And I will give into you a spirit! And ye shall live! And ye shall know that I am Yehovah!’” 7And I prophesied just-as I was commanded. And a voice was as I prophesied. And behold a quaking! And bones approached, a bone unto his bone. 8And I saw. And behold, sinews are upon them! And flesh ascended. And skin overspread upon them from above. And there is no spirit in them. 9And He said unto me, “Prophesy unto the Spirit! Prophesy, son of Adam! And thou shalt say unto the Spirit, ‘So said my Lords Yehovah, “Come, Spirit, from four of the spirits! And breathe into these slain!” And they shall live!’” 10And I prophesied just-as He commanded me. And the Spirit came into them. And they lived! And they stood upon their feet—a very very big army! 11And He said unto me, “Son of Adam! These bones are all the House of Israel! They—behold, they are saying, ‘Our bones dried. And our hope shall perish. We were cut-off/divided to us!’ 12Therefore, prophesy! And thou shalt say unto them, ‘So said my Lords Yehovah, “Behold I am opening your graves. And I will cause-you-to-ascend from your graves, my people! And I will bring you unto soil of Israel! 13And ye shall know that I am Yehovah via my opening your graves and via my causing-you-to-ascend from your graves, my people! 14And I will give my Spirit into you. And ye shall live. And I will rest you upon your soil. And ye shall know that I Yehovah spoke, and I will do!” declared Yehovah.

The entire House of Israel (not including the House of Judah) will be temporarily annihilated in a future annihilation. Yet, the text will be literally fulfilled,

Romans 8:38 Neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities nor powers nor things present nor things to come 39nor height nor depth nor any other creation shall be able to separate us [the Israelis] from the love of God that is in our Lord Messiah Yeshua.

Thus, Holocausts are assured (until all Israel obeys the Torah), but Israel will certainly continue to exist.

Heart of the Matter

Proposals and the Only Reasonable Conclusion

With the above considerations in mind, why did the Holocaust of Hitler occur? The following is a list of possible reasons, but some will be eliminated in discussions after the list:

  • Jew haters were far more clever than Jews
  • Hitler happened to take a German failed economy, resurrect it into a great war machine, and slaughter Jews for seven years because Hitler was so clever and wise, as well as such a hateful murdering bastard
  • Jews had no desire to live, and therefore had no fight; they just agreeably walked to graves to be shot, or even more impressively dug their graves, then stood by while Germans practiced marksmanship
  • The Jewish Rabbinic schools and institutes were teaching so much truth, righteousness, love of the Talmudic writings and the Scriptures, and doing so well, that Satan (the Adversary) just had to react and demonically destroy the Jews and their schools out of fear
  • The Gentile world turned its back on the Jews, and the God of Israel did the same, along with the ‘Church,’ permitting Jew haters to have tremendous success
  • The God of Israel had no power, and could do nothing but weep at the slaughter of the people identified with Him, looking for the salvation of the Jews to come from man
  • There was no way the Jews could have known what was coming; there was no warning, and the Gentile pigs just hated them with such a fury, that they coordinated the murders of helpless Jews as if they had been planning it for a century
  • Yehovah was furious with Israel, and turned Israel over to the hands of enemies for seven years, making certain that the Jews had practically no successes; He then turned all around, and gave successes one after another to a bunch of secular Jews who came to Israel to serve the soil

I will examine each in the list above to see which ones make Biblical sense.

Jew haters were far more clever than Jews

If Jew haters were so clever, they would have been able to finish the job. They never can because they aren’t so clever. (Truly clever folks understand all factors involved in any goal; these folks don’t understand the factor of the God of Israel.)

Jews have provided this world with more benefits per capita than any other race. They also produced the very Messiah that the rest of the supposed ‘Christian’ world desires and needs for Salvation. Trying to kill this people is just a little stupid.

If Hitler had been so clever, he would not have turned from the destruction of England to attack Russia. His astrological beliefs told him to do that; he was a sucker. That move cost him the war.

Jews now make films about World War II; this shows that they survive, and Jew haters had to hide. Jewish cleverness has always been high except in matters pertaining to God. That is why Jew haters are jealous. Thus, the cleverness of Jew haters cannot be the reason; it isn’t true.

Hitler’s Economic Wisdom

“Hitler happened to take a German failed economy, resurrect it into a great war machine, and slaughter Jews for seven years because Hitler was so clever and wise, as well as such a hateful murdering bastard.” How can one man accomplish that much in such a short span of time? If Hitler was so clever and wise, where were Jewish individuals that are at least as clever? Why didn’t a Jewish individual who was at least as wise rise at the same time and do at least as much as Hitler, but as an opposite force? How can one man (with advisors) turn an economy around as Hitler did, even if it was only for a few years? Was Adolph Hitler truly a genius?

Every realistic indicator was that he wasn’t. He talked, shouted, wrote a little, and focused on the Jews. Beyond that, he wasn’t such a genius. He was charismatic and could give well-constructed speeches. He had some very smart folks working for him, but even they were limited by his goals and superstitions. He wasn’t wise (even in an evil way); he brought about the failure of his Third Reich. Thus, Hitler’s wisdom doesn’t hold.

Hitler was right in only one way: He showed just how important the Jews were, are, and will be. Hitler thought of the Jews every day, focusing on them and their importance to him in all his goals. Hitler served (slaved for) the Jews in a perverted, but real way. His entire war machine was dedicated to the Jews (even if it was dedicated to their annihilation)! The Bible also attests to the importance of the Jews, albeit with a different ending.

Jewish Desire to Die and Not Fight

“Jews had no desire to live, and therefore had no fight; they just agreeably walked to graves to be shot, or even more impressively dug their graves, then stood by while Germans practiced marksmanship.” The appearance of this is what astounded Nazis. It is not the case; Jews desired to live. Shock, terror and incredulity mixed with the expectation that God would somehow deliver overcame everything else, and they didn’t fight. Yet, immediately after the war, Jewish willingness to fight astounded the world. What happened? Did the Jews really desire to fill the trenches with their own corpses?

Deuteronomy 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and Yehovah had shut them up?

This blunt text tells what happened. It doesn’t tell why, though. (That will come later.)

Thus, the idea that Jews desired to fill Nazi trenches is very stupid. It does not explain what happened.

The Excellence of Jewish Rabbinic Schools

“The Jewish Rabbinic schools and institutes were teaching so much truth, righteousness, love of the Talmudic writings and the Scriptures, and doing so well, that Satan (the Adversary) just had to react and demonically destroy the Jews and their schools out of fear.” This, of course, would give much credit to Satan. It would glorify him and show him to be more powerful than Yehovah. Of course, had that been the case, he would have succeeded in destroying them all.

What were the Jewish Yeshivas doing? They welcomed Jews from everywhere, regardless of the ability to pay, gave them places to stay, clothing to wear, food and drink, and equipment for learning. All they needed to study was a love of learning and a love of the Talmud. This was unparalleled in human history (except perhaps during the height of Islamic education when it was in Spain). Rejoicing and excitement over the Talmud and Torah were the greatest they had ever been, occurring seven days a week, day and night for some students and teachers.

What was being taught? The teachings were from the Rabbis of old and their commentaries on the commentaries on the Torah (I wrote it right). They were being taught of the days of the coming Messiah (as described by Jewish sages, and as distinct from ‘Christian’ sages). They were being taught that the God of Israel, HaShem (The Name), was pleased with this learning and this love of Talmud and Torah. They were taught that they could temporarily leave the cruel world of the Gentiles, many who mistreated Jews, and be surrounded by Jews who supported them and their learning. They were taught that the time of the Messiah might be soon.

While their learning in the Talmud and other Rabbinic writings was at its pinnacle, outside of these communities lurked Gentiles who were filled with jealous hatred and rage. That hatred grew as Hitler openly expressed their own thoughts and shouted new thoughts to which they agreed.

Did Satan so hate the beautiful and good teachings and works of the Jews, that he just had to react and destroy the Jews and their schools—perhaps from fear, in case it would bring the Messiah? Satanic fear of the Jews was not what was occurring. Jews were openly humiliated, tortured and killed. This expressed contempt, not fear. The Book of Esther describes fear that Gentiles felt regarding Jews. That fear drove many Gentiles to become Jews.

Satan doesn’t fear Jews; he fears the Jewish Messiah Who will place him in chains for a thousand years before turning him over to Saints to judge, after which he will be consigned to the Lake of Fire and Sulfur designed for rebel angels.

The human hatred of Jews outwardly expressed before and during World War II was unnatural in its strength. Even friends of the Jews were careful to keep their friendship hidden lest they became victims with the Jews and lest they could no longer secretly help them.

Rabbinic schools did not prepare the students or the faculty for the coming slaughter. The schools did not know what was about to occur. There is something wrong with this scene. Were there no prophets? Were there no warnings?

There were many warnings. Hitler broadcasted the warnings!

The schools were led by Rabbinic teachers who believed in teachings that denied the possibility that HaShem would permit such a terrible series of events even though history should have taught otherwise. (Teachings that do not prepare folks for reality are of little value, and can get six million killed.) Why didn’t they know what was coming?

They were not teaching the kind of truth that saves lives. What they taught weakened or destroyed any resolve to refuse to go into trenches and ovens. This type of Judaism almost went extinct.

Whatever the righteousness was that the schools taught, no force (like from the God of Israel) was preserving it. Yet, immediately after the war, the few secular, unbelieving Jews who settled in the very inhospitable land of ‘Palestine’ became a major force in the world as if a force (like from the God of Israel) was making certain that they succeeded. Did the Jewish will to live suddenly switch on? Did no faith work much stronger than Rabbinic faith? Look at the results.

Those Rabbinic schools were excellent, but HaShem (The Name, referring to Yehovah) didn’t see them that way.

The Gentile World’s Back

“The Gentile world turned its back on the Jews, and the God of Israel did the same, permitting Jew haters to have tremendous success.” There were plenty of Gentiles who worked hard to route Hitler and his forces. There were also Gentiles (perhaps not in the ‘plenty’ category) who worked hard to save the lives of Jews. Many countries refused to accept Jews; that certainly guaranteed their slaughter. Yet, in so many locations, individuals did what they could to help Jews. A few were helped.

The rest of the world seemed insane. Even a major leader of Poland attempted to broadcast what was occurring against the Jews, but so many sources of good information obtained no hearing. It was as if they had been shouting in a vacuum; the lips moved, but the sound was silent. Something more was occurring.

Did the God of Israel turn His back on the Jews? It is as if the following text occurred:

Isaiah 1:15 “And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you! Indeed, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear!”

The problem with using this text is that it doesn’t end there; it continues with, “Your hands are full of blood.” The Jewish, Rabbinic, scholarly communities were not places of violence. They were refuges from violence and the unclean world of the Gentiles. They were places where love among Jewish Brethren was truly practiced. Thus, a text like the above cannot be used to explain anything about the Holocaust.

The next text will have several parts that won’t fit, but other parts that must be considered:

Isaiah 5:18 Hoy, drawers of the guilt via cords of the vanity, and sin as braided-ropes of the cart! 19─the sayers, “He will hurry! He will rush her—his act—so that we will see! And the plan of the Holy-One of Israel approached and came! And we knew!” 20Hoy, the sayers to bad: “Good!” and to good, “Bad!”─putting darkness for light and light for darkness!─putting bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21Woe, wise-ones in their own eyes and prudent-ones before their own faces! 22Woe, valiant-ones to drink wine and men of valour to mix strong-drink! 23…justifiers of culpability the heel of payoff! And they removed the righteousness of the righteous-ones from them! 24Therefore, as a tongue of fire eats stubble and the flame will deplete the hay, their root shall be as muck, and their flower will go-up as powder! For they have refused the teaching of Yehovah of Hosts, and they have contemned the saying of the Holy-One of Israel! 25Therefore, Yehovah’s nose smoked into His people. And His hand is stretched-over him! And He smote him! And the mountains quaked {with terror}. And their corpse was as manure in the midst of streets. In all this, His nose did not return. And His hand is still stretched-out!

The following is a detailed consideration of the above text. Verse 18 refers to cords of the vanity. A vanity in the Bible is an idol, a false god. Yehovah commanded the Israelis to have nothing to do with false gods. The Israelis therefore avoided images, but didn’t seem to be aware that false gods include more than images. They include persons who are venerated. Holding a person in high esteem isn’t wrong, but when that person’s writings are viewed as the very words of God when they are not Biblical prophets (that is, prophets that fit the Bible’s credentials for infallibility), they are being deified.

The most Orthodox Jews venerated the Rabbis of old. They considered their words to be the very words of God even though rabbis of old disagreed with each other on a regular basis. They therefore viewed the opinions of these Rabbis as on the same part with the Scriptures of the prophets, and even higher in some cases. Therefore, Israel was deep into idolatry. Orthodox Jews had no clue that this was the case, and certainly would not see it this way now. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t so.

The Torah was called Holy. The Talmud, written by these conflictingly opinioned Rabbis, was called the Holy of Holies.

Verse 19 was not a problem for these Jewish communities. They were not taunting Yehovah to come.

Verse 20 is pertinent. Rabbis said that certain things were good, like celebrating the Jewish New Year in the fall, when the Word of God in Exodus specified that it is in the spring. While that may not seem very major, other things were. For example, it was considered an outrage for a woman to study the Torah unattended by one Rabbinically trained. In some communities, the Torah itself was kept away from the women except for what they heard in the Shul (the synagogue); they were taught tales of the Messiah and how to keep a good, kosher, proper Jewish home. The Rabbis considered a man who began to teach his daughter straight from the Torah as doing a great evil. (Women who studied the Torah without supervision easily could associate the Messiah with Yeshua.) Thus, Rabbinic teachers called good bad. The good was studying the Torah straight and literally; that was considered very evil. The Torah was kept from the women of Israel by this means. Young boys went to Yeshiva to learn the Rabbinic view of the Torah and Judaism, and young girls either stayed home and learned from their mothers or they learned from other women a basic Jewish kosher form of home economics. They heard the Torah on Shabbat and other occasions, and they heard many discussions of it; they did not have direct access to the Torah themselves unless it was in secret or under strict supervision. Women learned bubba maases: grandma’s doings, grandma’s tales.

It is a crime before Yehovah to keep the Torah from the women of Israel.

Verse 21 has two parts. The first part is, “Woe, wise-ones in their own eyes.” These communities were filled with educated men who felt the wisdom to instruct others. They were wise in their own eyes. Yet, their wisdom made them naked (Biblically meaning that they had no defense, no armour, no shield against enemies). They were caught completely unawares and were killed with the greatest ease. If Yehovah had sent any one of them to deliver their brethren, the entire Nazi army could not have stopped one person.

The second part is, “Woe, prudent-ones before their own faces!” They felt there were being prudent and teaching prudence to those around them.

Prudence is being circumspect, wisely understanding, prospering, to look at or upon, having insight, giving attention to, considering, pondering, having comprehension. A person who is prudent is very considerate and diligent, carefully determining the best possible course of action or inaction. Thus, such a person gives careful consideration using all the information available to the person at that time. Add to these reason, foresight and self-control. We previously defined it as the ability to wisely handle one’s affairs in life. Such a person shows discretion. This includes attentiveness to possible hazard or disadvantage.

Talmudic teachings caused those taught to give up regular prudence regarding enemies. They were not on guard. They thought that God would protect them because they thought they were doing right in His eyes. Yehovah did not agree with them, and history did not agree that Yehovah the God of Israel saw it this way.

Ghetto Jew was later used among the Jews as an insulting term for a Jew who knew things were brewing with enemies, and decided to wait it out and do nothing, retreating to the ghetto (Jewish enclave) instead of fighting. That included religious Jews who found reading, studying, and even copying the Torah and Talmud more important than taking a defensive and an offensive posture against enemies.

They thought they were prudent, but those who really were prudent included a few who gave up everything to physically walk to the Land of ‘Palestine.’ They were prudent. Others escaped to countries when they could.

Verse 22 doesn’t pertain. Heavy drinking in those Jewish communities was not a norm.

The second part of verse 23 is, “they removed the righteousness of the righteous-ones from them!” A person who studied the Torah on his or her own and believed it literally was called a maskil. This word means a prudent one! Yet it was used as an insult akin to smartass. A person who was part of the Jewish community and who approached, read and studied the Torah without Rabbinic perspectives and views was considered much worse than merely unrighteous; the person was considered akin to a renegade, one who challenged the authority and inspiration of the Rabbis and of God who (supposedly) sent the Rabbis.

Verse 24 graphically described what occurred in nearly all the European and many Russian Jewish communities.

Verse 24 then states, “For they have refused the teaching of Yehovah of Hosts, and they have contemned the saying of the Holy-One of Israel!” This text refers to two identities of one God:

  • Yehovah of Hosts
  • Holy One of Israel

Both identities refer to the Messiah.

The Teaching’s (Torah’s) source is the Messiah.

The saying of the Holy One of Israel is the saying of the Messiah.

How could those sayings have saved lives?

Yehovah warned Israel about consequences. Even if Israel were to be taken completely by surprise, the obvious nature of the wrath of Yehovah should have at least given some thoughtful Jews the idea of looking back into the Tenach (called ‘Old Testament’ by folks in the Christianized world) to see what Israel missed. Instead, the ‘head in the sand’ response of “Where was God?” has been the unanswered and rhetorical question. It is the wrong question. “Where was Israel?”

Verse 25 continues with more terrible descriptions of slaughter.

Two other texts are pertinent:

Jeremiah 7:16 “Therefore, don’t pray for this people, and don’t lift up a shout or a prayer for them. And don’t make intercession to me! For I will not hear thee!”

Jeremiah 11:14 “Therefore, don’t pray thou for this people, and don’t lift up a shout or a prayer for them! For I will not hearken to them in the time that they shout unto me for their trouble!”

When Yehovah angers, He certainly doesn’t stop the destruction; He either actively brings it or he causes the Israelis to be powerless before their enemies. (He does give a few small groups of Jews success if they are willing to lay down their lives for their brethren.) He only gives enemies of Israel temporary success when He has given Israel much warning, and when Jewish violations are very great in His eyes.

Did the Gentile world turn its back on the Jews? That happened long before World War II. Did the God of Israel turn His back on the Jews, permitting Jew haters to have tremendous success? He obviously did. He was furious.

Prophet-Giving Promise

Amos 3:1 “Hear this word that Yehovah hath spoken concerning you, children of Israel, concerning the whole family that I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, 2 ‘I have known only you from all the families of the land! Therefore I will visit you for all your iniquities!’” 3Can two walk together, except they be agreed? 4Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey? Will a young lion shout from his den if he has taken nothing? 5Can a bird fall into a snare upon the land where no gin is for him? Shall one take up a snare from the land, and have taken nothing at all? 6Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? Shall there be bad in a city, and Yehovah has not done? 7Surely the Lord Yehovah will do nothing, but He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets.

This text has two major points pertinent to this paper:

  • “Shall there be bad in a city, and Yehovah has not done?” Yehovah takes full credit if destruction in (of) a city occurs. This isn’t referring to Yehovah doing moral evil; it is referring His destroying due to His wrath. The next part goes along with this is:
  • “Surely the Lord Yehovah will do nothing, but He reveals His secret unto His servants the prophets.” Yehovah will never do anything that pertains to these verses without revealing His secret unto prophets! He will give warnings. He will always give Israel warnings. He knows that each new generation must learn all over again. History must also be viewed as an instructor!

Standing in Front of a Freight Train

If a person standing in front of a freight train who will not hearken to warnings from three sources is hit by the freight train, should others who survive marvel at how terrible the rest of the world was for not stopping the train?

The Hebrew Scriptures warn of a continuous series of Holocausts followed by enough peace for the Jewish population to grow again. These Holocausts will occur unless the Israelis voluntarily keep on the move in the world and do what is right according to the Torah (from Yehovah’s perspectives). Jewish communities have refused to move once they became settled. Those communities were often very poor and at the mercy of local Gentiles. The thought of moving was terrifying, but that would have been better than ignoring warnings and being killed.

Israel’s enemies will not be silent for long—not until the days of the Messiah. They will rise up and slaughter the Jews.

Some heeded warnings in the 1930s and 1940s, and they left when they could. Some took their families and belongings, and others left with nothing, but still escaped. Some went to ‘Palestine,’ what would soon be the Land of Israel. They found a comparatively peaceful place during the entire war. Yet, Hitler’s troops were in Africa, so nearby. How strange it was that the Middle East was one of the safe havens for Jews during the war!

The freight train will always be heading straight for Israel until the Messiah promised to Israel comes as King. Building communities on the tracks doesn’t make sense. Yehovah will stop the train if Israel will do right. Since Israel won’t do right for many centuries, repetition of Holocausts are Biblically guaranteed.

Were all guilty of sin who were slaughtered?

Sin itself affects the innocent to such a degree that often the innocent are the only immediate victims. Sin is in the world, and it touches all.

Many who were slaughtered were innocent victims of murder. Israel is in a predicament, however; Yehovah sees Israel as a unit. If Israel as a unit ignores Him and His commands in the Torah, and goes after gods that He does not know, including gods found in Jewish tradition, He ignores Israel’s plight, makes Israel powerless, and sometimes brings that plight upon Israel. The Israelis have not known this, or if they have, they have minimized it, not passing this on to each succeeding generation.

The Maccabees were an exception in history. They were terrorists to most Israelis, and they determined to do what they could to maintain obedience to the Torah in the Land of Israel. Yehovah gave them great success. Other Jewish groups that tried to do the same things as the Maccabees were destroyed.

The greatest threat to Israel is not Iran. It is not someone with an atomic weapon. It isn’t a rogue state that hates Jews. It isn’t the KKK. The greatest threat to Israel is and always has been Yehovah, the God of Israel, and the Covenant between Yehovah and Israel. Until the Israelis figure this out, Holocausts will continue like clockwork, always waiting for the population to increase enough to sustain the next slaughter, to become off-guard, to feel itself safe among Gentiles, to hope that it will not happen—“Never Again!”

Many pagan and idolatrous races do far worse than Israel when it comes to idolatry, but they don’t belong to Yehovah, and they don’t have the same standard that Yehovah gave to Israel. Also, they don’t have the warnings that Yehovah provided to individual Israelis and to Israel as a whole.

Had the Holocaust been from Yehovah’s hand, only the guilty among the Israelis would have been targeted. Instead, Yehovah removed Israel’s protection so that the Jews could try their own means of protection and self-preservation by Talmudic study or by counting on German law and justice. Israel found that these two had no power for them.

The Powerlessness of God

“The God of Israel had no power and could do nothing but weep at the slaughter of the people identified with Him, looking for the salvation of the Jews to come from man.” This doesn’t describe the Biblical God. It does describe a god more akin to the gods of Judaism than to other religions.

A key part of Judaism is the belief that the Jews will bring their own salvation and salvation to the rest of the world, and that they will rule over the rest of the world (Orthodoxy) or with the rest of the world (Reform Judaism) with a warrior messiah (Orthodoxy) or the messiah of reason (Reform Judaism) at the helm. These are both humanism. Humanism is antagonistic to the Bible at every point.

Many false messiahs will arise in Israel, including many venerated Rabbis. All those messiahs will bring no salvation, and will be placed into graves without arising from the dead. They will give Jewish followers much hope, and no strength to stand before enemies. While Jewish Rabbinic zealots can be real and formidable fighters, Jewish infighting between groups will stop any unified hand.

The Maccabees did not claim to be Rabbinic. They were very literal and simple in their views and determinations. They feared Yehovah, not how followers viewed them. They were not Talmudists. Yehovah gave them success.

If God is powerless, He certainly cannot give prophets the ability to tell what will happen in the future, and the Torah is therefore worthless.

“Did God weep during the Holocaust?” The Bible shows that Yehovah’s wrath isn’t necessarily the time of Yehovah’s weeping. When He is furious, He isn’t weeping. He does weep in Jeremiah before He pours His wrath, but the weeping doesn’t stop Him from taking action:

Jeremiah 9:1 “Who will give my head waters, and mine eyes a fountain of a tear, and I will weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people? 2Who will give a lodging place of wayfaring men in the wilderness, and I will leave my people, and go from them? For they are all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men! 3And they bend their tongues, their bow, lies. And they are not valiant for the truth upon the Land. For they proceed from bad to bad, and they don’t know me,” says Yehovah.

Yeshua also wept when He saw what will occur to Jerusalem and its inhabitants. His weeping was because the Israelis will not have anything to do with what can deliver them:

Matthew 23:37 “Jerusalem! Jerusalem—that kills the prophets and stones them who are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together even as a hen gathers her chicks under wings, and ye would not! 38Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39For I say unto you, ye shall not see me henceforth until ye shall say, ‘Blessed is He Who comes with the Name Yehovah!’”

Yehovah the God of Israel delayed stopping the Holocaust! Hitler was preserved through many attempts to kill him. He had to kill himself. It was almost as if he had been anointed by God, like King Hazael:

1 Kings 19:15 And Yehovah said unto [Elijah], “Come! Return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus. And when thou come, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria.”

2 Kings 8:9 So Hazael went to meet [Elisha]. And he took a present with him, even of every good thing of Damascus, forty camels’ burden. And he came and stood before him. And he said, “Thy son Benhadad king of Syria hath sent me to thee, saying, ‘Shall I recover of this disease?” 10And Elisha said unto him, “Go, say unto him, ‘Thou shalt certainly recover!’ And Yehovah has showed me that he shall surely die.” 11And he steadfastly settled his countenance until he was ashamed. And the man of God [Elisha] wept. 12And Hazael said, “Why does my lord weep?” And he answered, “Because I know the bad that thou wilt do unto the children of Israel. Thou wilt set on fire their strong holds. And thou wilt slay their young men with the sword. And thou wilt dash their children! And thou wilt rip up their women with child!” 13And Hazael said, “But what? Is thy servant a dog, that he should do this great thing?” And Elisha answered, “Yehovah has showed me that thou art king over Syria!”

Hitler likewise was a murderer and a hater of Yehovah, and of Yehovah’s People Israel.

If the God of Israel was powerless, He certainly showed His power after the war by giving powerless Jews in the Land of ‘Palestine’/Israel world status in just a few years!

Humans will never bring Salvation to Israel.

They Could Not Have Known What Hit

“There was no way the Jews could have known what was coming; there was no warning, and the Gentile pigs just hated them with such a fury, that they coordinated the murders of helpless Jews as if they had been planning it for a century.” That last part about planning it is so strange. Such an incredibly coordinated slaughter defies all logic and reason, yet that is how it appears. How could a small group of haters of Jews be so successful in rallying mass murders for such a long time? This is a reverse miracle. (Most miracles are very good; this is the opposite; it is so terrible, so cruel and so violent.)

The idea that the Jews could not have known what was coming is unreasonable.

  • Their enemies told them what was coming.
  • The Torah told them what was coming.
  • History told them what was coming.
  • Their friends told them what was coming.

They (with a few exceptions) ignored all these, or refused to take action out of fear and loss. This is common in the history of Israel.

Instead of, “Never Again!” it should be published, “Certainly Again!” Israel will not change for a very great number of centuries.

Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed [lit., have been silenced] from without the knowledge. For thou despised the knowledge! And I have despised thee from ‘priesting’ to me! And thou forgot the Torah [Teaching] of thy Gods! I will forget thy children—also I!”

If they didn’t know what hit, it was because they despised and forgot.

Yehovah’s Fury; Yehovah’s Prospering

“Yehovah was furious with Israel, and turned Israel over to the hands of enemies for seven years, making certain that the Jews had practically no successes; He then turned all around, and gave successes one after another to a bunch of secular Jews who came to Israel to serve the soil.” This paragraph describes what took place.

I am only aware of two major Jewish underground groups that gave the Nazis a very hard time during the entire war. The powerlessness of the Jews living in Europe and other places was phenomenal. It defied sense. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising took place too late, and though heroic, was destroyed. Leaders in the Ghetto thought they might be able to sustain and compromise until deliverance or an end of the war would come. They didn’t understand.

Yet, after the war, when Israel was the weakest of all nations on the earth, and the Land of Israel was still a future concept, a group of mainly secular Jews who believed in nothing much, many who didn’t believe in the existence of a god, went to serve the soil in the land of ‘Palestine,’ knowing that the mosquitoes were malarial and deadly. They gave their lives to serve the soil of Yehovah’s land! Yehovah saw this. He gave them victories—not the kind of victories that were 100% as in the days of old when the Israelis did right according to the Torah, but still, victories over their enemies until the Israelis became a world power. They were willing to work together in the kibbutzim (real communes in which those who voluntarily join give up their properties to the commune, and are given responsibilities, living quarters, food, and care—a genuine form of non-Marxist communism), having a history-defying love for each other: a “love for the brethren.” This fit the pattern described in the Book of Acts:

Acts 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common. 45And they sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all as every man had need.

Thus, Yehovah gave them victory because they did right to the soil, and they loved the brethren.

Their lack of faith wasn’t the issue; their works were the issue. They didn’t obtain Biblical salvation by their works; Yehovah gave them success because they did right. Even while the most Orthodox Jewish schools were setting up instruction according to the Rabbis, and the enemies were setting up to slaughter the Jews of those schools (the schools not preparing the students to even defend themselves), those in the kibbutzim were determined to work, benefit each other, and defend. They were akin to the Israelis of old who did right; yet what master plan did they have? How did they know to do what they did?

Israel’s Violations

A Consideration of Jewish Violations Leading to the Holocaust

There are those who cannot even consider this question. In their minds and in their ethics, to even state that there might be a reason that would justify the Holocaust is the acme of anti-Semitism. Those of this mindset live now, and they lived in Jeremiah’s day. That prophet proved to be such a problem in Israel with his prophecies that appeared to weaken the resolve of the Israeli army, that they decided to imprison Jeremiah for being a traitor. Not many Scripture-believing Jews will see Jeremiah today as a traitor, but he was considered that in his day.

Speaking the Truth is sometimes considered being a traitor or being anti whatever group is being considered. This is a good way to guarantee that Holocausts will continue for the reason stated in the following paragraphs.

Was Israel innocent? Saying yes will indict Yehovah. Saying no must be substantiated from the Tenach.

The Israelis forsook the Covenant.

This is not to say that they didn’t carry the scrolls with them with much love and affection for the scrolls, and with a willingness to give their own lives to protect those scrolls. They loved those scrolls.

Loving the contents of the scrolls was another matter. The most Orthodox of the Jews did not hearken to the contents, and they still don’t to this day, though they feel that they do, since they are too busy hearkening to commentaries. Let their commentaries explain Yehovah’s views by which He did not stop the Holocaust, by which He did not remove Hitler, and by which He did not send deliverance.

Jews who are not Orthodox certainly have far less or no regard for the contents of the Scrolls (with the very rare exception of a few here and there throughout the world who do believe the scrolls literally). Let them use reason to explain the regular Holocausts of history against the Jews.

Another set of groups of Jews gaining popularity today are so-called ‘Messianic Jews.’ They are usually just regular Christians in theology, but use menorahs, challah, traditions and stars of David. They are closer to Reform Jews in faith and practice, though they see themselves as closer to Orthodox Jews.

I should be required to give proof or evidence that the Orthodox Jews did not hearken to the contents, but I will present this as a much stronger proof than I could possibly discover: Yehovah was furious, and His fury isn’t for no reason. (Rabbis who believe the Tenach know this.) He turned from aiding Israel (except in very isolated events) for seven years: from 1938 to 1945. Israel still terribly struggled at the cruel hands of the races even into 1948.

Unless Yehovah is ruthless, without justice, senseless, a liar, or just non-existent, His anger was that great.

Even if the Rabbis all conclude that Israelis were doing right in the great Jewish communities and schools before the Holocaust, Yehovah did not agree. Had they been doing right, Yehovah would have shown His fervour for them as He did in history, and they would have been brought back into the Land with great signs and wonders. This was not the case. No matter what the Rabbis and all who are friends of Israel will conclude regarding the goodness of the Jewish communities and teachings during that time leading up to the most wicked and violent slaughter of Jews, Yehovah did not see it that way.

The Jews have an obligation to view Justice and the Torah from Yehovah’s angle if they will avoid incurring His wrath and fury, and if they will live in peace and in security from all enemies.

Yehovah viewed these Orthodox Rabbinic Schools as teaching the forsaking of His Covenant, not as teaching the greatest, most righteous and most pious teachings of the Covenant! That forsaking occurred by addition to His commands, by interpreting His commands in ways He never directed, and by pious Jews viewing themselves as pious Jews instead of looking carefully at the Torah and prophets to see what Yehovah truly thought of this type of piety.

Romans 10:3 For they, being ignorant of God’s righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

The opinions and views of the Rabbis regarding the Torah were wrong, not right. Their opinions and views led to death and unpreparedness, not life. They led to ignoring enemies at the door while being powerless, not strengthening Israel to fight enemies and to win with great victories, signs and miracles.

Here is one vital key: Those who do not forsake the Covenant of Yehovah Gods of Israel take the Covenant literally.

The Rabbis (the worst, yet the most popular being Hillel, with whom another Rabbi named Shammai disagreed) should have taken the Covenant literally, and should not have sought ways to skirt around it. Rabbi Hillel taught the Israelis how to circumvent the year of the release of debts that Yehovah commanded in the Torah by releasing them in the seventh year, then taking them up again in the eighth! This demonstrates contempt for the Torah and for the sense of the God Who gave the Torah.

The Israelis felt settled where they were, and felt no need to leave—either to go to the Land of Israel (unfortunately called ‘Palestine’ at that time) or to depart from the communities they loved. Those who were very religious knew the importance of the Torah, the Temple, the sacrifices, and the Land of Israel, but the Rabbis had taught them that they had replacements that they could use for each of these. Yehovah doesn’t see it that way.

Tradition replaced Torah while continually lauding the Torah. Yiddish with its brilliant humour and its built-in ability to curse replaced Hebrew with its brilliant humour and its build-in ability to bless. (Cursing in Hebrew isn’t very easily accomplished.) Fear of Rabbis replaced fear of Yehovah. Yehovah did not appreciate this, and never will. Keeping kosher replaced keeping Biblically righteous; yet keeping kosher was viewed as keeping righteous.

Yehovah didn’t forsake the Covenant.

The Israelis went and served other gods.

How is this possible when a major foundation of Orthodox Judaism is to never have, follow or worship other gods? They worshipped the Rabbis and their opinions as if they were the Angel of Yehovah, as if they were prophets of Yehovah, as if they spoke the very mind and soul of Yehovah. They worshipped their sayings, their writings, their ethics, their clothing, their ways of preparing foods, their very habits.

Orthodox Jews rightly accuse the ‘Christians’ of worshipping their false god Jesus. Nearly all Jesuses that the various forms of ‘Christianity’ describe are false gods, having desires and characteristics that the ‘New Testament’ does not ascribe to Yeshua.

Yeshua was a Jewish Rabbi (among other things). All who have gone after a ‘Jesus’ who doesn’t fit the Biblical description have deified a false god. The Episcopalian Jesus isn’t the same as the Roman Catholic Jesus or the Baptist Jesus. The Seventh Day Adventist Jesus isn’t the same as the Mormon Jesus, though he is similar to the Jesus of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and far from the Jesus (Yeshua) of the ‘New Testament.’

Thus, the Orthodox Jews accuse ‘Christians’ of being idolaters when they are looking in a mirror. Those Rabbis of old who penned the Talmud and its associated writings were writing opinions, many of which are not in accord with the Torah. The Orthodox Jews think they are in perfect accord with the Torah, but the Holocausts of history should have given them a clue that something wasn’t right. Yehovah wasn’t happy. Instead, they have clung to the Talmud like so many idolatrous ‘Christians’ cling to ‘the old rugged cross’ instead of clinging to the Word of God as it is written.

Many ‘Christians’ of today and history worship their ministers and the writers of their commentaries. They do the very same thing and are in the very same error as Orthodox Jews. Christianity is jealous of the Jews and their central and elevated position in the Bible. That is a major reason why folks claiming to be ‘Christians’ have performed so many Holocausts of history. They want Israel gone so that they can feel like they have replaced the Jews in God’s eyes.

The best of the Orthodox Jewish Rabbinic Schools taught a god that was not Yehovah, with characteristics that were not akin to Him. As one example, there was and is an erroneous teaching about Yehovah: that as the Jews put on their ‘prayer shawls’ (tzit-tzit) and say, “Who is like HaShem among the gods,” that HaShem puts on His tzit-tzit and says, “Who is like unto Israel among the races?” The Holocaust ruined that picture. That isn’t Yehovah the Gods of the Bible. That is a god whom the Rabbis concocted.

As long as the Israelis continue in various forms of idolatry and sin, no matter how many mitzvahs (meaning commandments, but accepted as meaning good deeds) they do (that Yehovah doesn’t see as mitzvahs), Yehovah will continue filling the cup of wrath for Israel, and will cause Israel to drink it when it is full.

He isn’t ignoring those races that come against His property, His People Israel. He will slaughter them if they mistreat His property once they have taken it over. Yehovah made certain that many among the races mistreating Israel also died in World War II. He greatly diminished the populations of the surrounding races according to their slaughters of His people, and He remembered those towns and villages that did whatever they could to save His People alive from the hands of the wicked haters of Israel.

Here is a paradox: Yehovah touches Israel with slaughters or removes Israel’s power against violent enemies when He is furious against Israel, but woe to the races that harm Israel once they have taken Israel captive! Those who risk their lives to save His property from the slaughter of attacking enemies are doing right!

The Greater Anger

Yehovah angered at the Israelis when they went after their neighbours’ gods after He brought them out of Egypt. He gave them to their neighbours to humiliate them so that they might reject the gods of their neighbours. Yet, as angry as Yehovah became in the book of the Judges of Israel, His anger was greater in the Holocaust of World War II and in the Inquisition because Israel was committing a greater crime.

Taking on the gods of one’s neighbours is stupid and normal. Turning the Torah and the rest of the Tenach (the ‘Old Testament’) into what it isn’t so that even the Gentiles cannot understand it is far worse. That is akin to blasphemy, a greater sin than idolatry. Holding the teachings of the Rabbis as on par with the Tenach, and holding their opinions and reasonings as infallible and the right way to view the Tenach are a far worse crimes. This is why Yehovah was so angry, and will continue to be so angry with Israel.

Salvation is of the Jews (John 4:22). If that Salvation is turned into what cannot save, neither the Jews nor the races will be saved! (Yet, any individual who desires Truth and who will be willing to receive Truth’s love will be given the love of the Truth, the Truth, and the gift of the Grace of Yehovah unto Salvation.)

This also explains why He was not angry with the secular Jews who willingly offered and gave their lives to benefit the soil of Israel. He gave those secular Jews the ability and authority to return to the Land to serve it. They didn’t serve it with a fear of Yehovah, but they did right to His Land by their works. They did not have the everlasting Salvation of God (unless they believed, which few did), but Yehovah gave them victory after victory over their enemies who were far more powerful than they were. He even gave them an air force built by Nazis: Messerschmitts with the broken cross that they replaced with a shield of David. Thus, out of the ruin of Nazi Germany came the secular State of Israel and its Air Force.

A few Orthodox Jews were present in ‘Palestine’ at this time, and they refused to become part of or even acknowledge the existence of the State of Israel, believing that only the Messiah has a right to establish the real State of Israel. They were again wrong because the State of Israel will be established a number of times before the Messiah establishes it in peace without end.

Only those who tremble at His Word, refusing commentaries and opinions, and believing what it states, literally (unless it, itself, teaches otherwise) are capable of that Faith that the Torah will give to anyone who is willing to hearken to its Words.

Israel’s Grim Future

Israel’s Future Expulsions from the Land

Israel is now on the land. If the Bible is true, this will not be the case in the future; and then it will be the case again; and then it won’t be; and then it will be… at least six times.

I propose that the times that Israel will be off the land won’t be equal in duration. The last time lasted nearly 1700 years.

The following texts describe these events:

Ezekiel 14:12 The word of Yehovah came again to me, saying, 13 “Son of man, when the land sins against me by trespassing grievously, then I will stretch out my hand upon her and will break the staff of her bread. And I will send famine upon her, and will cut off man and animal from her. 14Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in her, they will deliver their own beings by their righteousness,” says the Lord Yehovah. 15 “If I cause bad animals to pass through the land, and they spoil her so that she will be desolate, that no man will pass through because of the animals. 16These three men are in her—I live,” says the Lord Yehovah, “they shall not deliver sons or daughters. They only shall be delivered, and the land shall be desolate. 17Or, I will bring a sword upon that land. And I will say, ‘Sword! Go through the land!’ so that I will cut off man and animal from her. 18Though these three men are in her—I live!” says the Lord Yehovah, “they shall not deliver sons or daughters, and they only shall be delivered themselves. 19Or, I will send a disease-outbreak into that land! And I will pour out my fury upon her via blood to cut off man and animal from her. 20Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, are in her, I live,” says the Lord Yehovah, “they shall not deliver son or daughter. They shall deliver their own beings  by their righteousness.” 21For thus says the Lord Yehovah, “How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem: the sword and the famine and the bad animal and the disease-outbreak to cut off man and animal from her! 22Yet, behold, a remnant that shall be brought forth shall be left in her—sons and daughters. Behold, they shall come forth unto you! And ye shall see their way and their doings. And ye shall be consoled concerning the bad that I have brought upon Jerusalem, concerning all that I have brought upon her. 23And they shall console you when ye shall see their ways and their doings. And ye shall know that I have not done all that I have done in her without cause,” says the Lord Yehovah.

The above text describes four of the six guaranteed complete removals from the Land of Israel, and one removal from just Jerusalem. Don’t be fooled by if or or in the above text. Yehovah knows the future. He doesn’t propose threats without knowing what will occur.

Another removal is mentioned in the following text:

Deuteronomy 29:10 Ye stand this day—all of you—before Yehovah your Gods: your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, all the men of Israel, 11your little ones, your wives and thy sojourner who is in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water. 12And thou shalt enter into the Covenant of Yehovah thy Gods and into His oath that Yehovah thy Gods makes with thee this day. 13And He shall establish thee today for a people unto Himself. And He shall be Gods unto thee as He has said unto thee, and as he has sworn unto thy fathers—to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. 14And I am not cutting this Covenant and this oath with you only, 15but with whoever is here with us this day before Yehovah our Gods, and also with whoever is not here with us this day—16(For ye know how we dwelt in the land of Egypt and how we came through the races that ye passed by. 17And ye have seen their abominations and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, that are among them)—18lest there will be man or woman or family or tribe among you whose heart turns away from Yehovah our Gods this day to go to serve the gods of these races; lest there will be a root that bears gall and wormwood among you. 19And he shall be, when he hears the words of this curse, that he will bless himself in his heart, saying, “I peace shall be to me! For I will walk in the obstinacy of my heart!” to add drunkenness to thirst. 20Yehovah will not be willing to forgive him! And then the anger of Yehovah and His jealousy shall smoke against that man! And all the curses that are written in this scroll shall lie upon him! And Yehovah shall blot out his name from under the heavens. 21And Yehovah shall separate him unto bad out of all the tribes of Israel according to all the curses of the Covenant that are written in this Scroll of the Torah! 22And the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you and the sojourner that shall come from a far land shall say, when they see the plagues of that land and the sicknesses that Yehovah laid upon her, 23 “Her whole land is brimstone and salt, burning! She is not sown or bears, or any grass grows in her, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboim that Yehovah overthrew in His anger and in His fury!” 24Even all races shall say, “Why has Yehovah done thus unto this land?” “What is the heat of this great anger?” 25And they shall say, “For they forsook the Covenant of Yehovah Gods of their fathers that He made with them when He brought them forth from the land of Egypt! 26For they went and served other gods! And they worshipped them—gods whom they didn’t know and He had not given unto them! 27And the anger of Yehovah was kindled against this land to bring upon her all the curses that are written in this scroll! 28And Yehovah rooted them out of their land in anger and in fury and in great indignation! And He cast them into another land, as this day.” 29 “The secrets are unto Yehovah our Gods, and those revealed are unto us and to our children to Hider to do all the words of this Torah [Teaching].”

The above text not only shows another entire removal from the Land of Israel, but it also gives the reasons. Gentiles are the ones who know and declare the reasons:

  • They forsook the Covenant of Yehovah Gods of their fathers that He made with them when He brought them forth from the land of Egypt
  • They went and served other gods
  • They worshipped them—gods whom they didn’t know and He had not given unto them

These texts will give the reasons for Yehovah’s great fury in the Holocausts—not only by Hitler, but Holocausts before and after Hitler.

The Sixth Removal Text

There is a sixth text that promises a total removal from the Land of Israel:

Jeremiah 4:19 “My bowels! My bowels! I am pained at my very heart! My heart makes a noise in me! I cannot hold my peace, because thou, my being, hast heard the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war! 20Destruction upon destruction is shouted! For the whole land is spoiled! Suddenly my tents are spoiled, my curtains, in a moment! 21How long shall I see the standard, hear the sound of the trumpet? 22For my people is foolish. They have not known me. They are stupid children. And they don’t have understanding. They are wise to do bad, but they have no knowledge to do good. 23I beheld the land. And behold, it is chaotic and a mess, and unto the heavens—and their light isn’t. 24I beheld the mountains. And behold, they trembled. And all the hills lightened themselves! 25I beheld. And behold no man! And all the birds of the heavens were fled. 26I beheld. And behold, the fruitful place is a wilderness! And all her cities were broken down at the faces of Yehovah by His fierce anger. 27For Yehovah said thus, ‘The whole land shall be desolate! And I will not make a full end. 28The land shall mourn for this, and the heavens above shall be black because I have spoken, I have purposed, and I will not grieve. And I will not turn back from her. 29The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen. They shall go into thickets and climb up upon the rocks. Every city is forsaken, and a man shall not dwell in them. 30And spoiled—what wilt thou do? Though thou shalt clothe thyself with crimson, though thou shalt deck thee with ornaments of gold, though thou shalt tear thy faces with painting, thou make thyself beautiful for nothing. Lovers will despise thee. They will seek thy life.’”

Yehovah is furious in this text.

Israel’s Protection

Touching Israel

No one and no group has the power to touch Israel without first going through Yehovah the Gods of Israel. I can tell that this is the case because the Israelis are together the very pupil of Yehovah’s eye:

Zechariah 2:8 For thus says Yehovah of hosts, “He sent me after the glory unto the races that spoiled you. For he who touches you touches the pupil of His eye!”

Israel (I speak of the group of Israelis, not the land) is Yehovah’s property, and individual Israelis are Yehovah’s property. I make this very important separation because so many texts in the Bible make this separation with different commands for both. Some commands are for all Israel as if all Israel is a Body, a person. Some commands are for individual Israelis as if they are distinct units. Reading texts without these distinctions in mind will unnecessarily confuse the reader.

Nearly all Jews see themselves as individuals and not part of a group, and they do not see that they have any responsibility to the group, or that their actions could influence what happens to the group. This is a deadly error.

Exodus 19:6 “And ye shall be a kingdom of priests unto me, and a holy [owned] race. These are the words that thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.”

Yehovah has always claimed Israel and Israelis (Jews) as His property, and He always will. His entire plan is firmly rooted and grounded in Israel and Israel’s existence.

Not knowing this is a great error, and it is perhaps one of the most popular errors of ‘Christendom.’ The very resurrection of the dead is grounded in Israel’s existence:

Hebrews 11:32 And what shall I say more? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah; David also and Samuel, and the prophets 33who subdued kingdoms through faith, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword. They were made strong out of weakness; they waxed valiant in fight; they turned-to-flight the armies of the aliens [foreigners]. 35Women received their dead raised to life again, and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance so-that they will obtain a better resurrection. 36And others had trial of mockings and scourgings—indeed and of bonds and imprisonment. 37They were stoned. They were sawn asunder. They were tempted. They were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented 38(of whom the world was not worthy). They wandered in deserts and mountains, and dens and caves of the earth. 39And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, did not receive the promise, 40God having provided some better thing for us, so-that they shall not be made perfect without us. 1Therefore, seeing we are also compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily besets.And let us run the race that is set before us with endurance, 2looking unto Yeshua, the author and finisher of faith, Who endured the cross for the joy that was set before Him, despising the shame. And He is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

1 Thessalonians 3:13 …to the end He will establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Messiah Yeshua with all His Saints.

When Messiah comes with all His Saints, those Saints that accompany Him will be in their immortal bodies. That is the resurrection of the dead. If Israel is permanently annihilated, Messiah’s promise of His coming cannot be fulfilled:

Matthew 23:39 “For I say unto you, ye [Israelis] shall not see me henceforth until ye shall say, ‘Blessed is He Who comes with the Name Yehovah!’”

Thus, destroying Israel destroys the resurrection. (Hate groups that desire the annihilation of the Jews cannot believe in the resurrection; they are working against it!)

Nearly all End Times events cannot be fulfilled if the Jews are destroyed. Yehovah will also be a liar if Israel is permanently destroyed:

Jeremiah 31:36 “If those ordinances depart from before me,” says Yehovah, “then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a race before me forever.” 37Thus says Yehovah, “If the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the land searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done,” says Yehovah.

Yehovah’s Covenant with Avraham precludes the destruction of Israel.

Thus, while many groups and individuals will ‘touch’ (do harm to) Israel, Yehovah is always watching to make certain that His Covenant with Israel will not be violated. That watching is both protective and the reason for slaughters.

Israel’s Miraculous Future

What Will Break Tradition?

Only breaking away from tradition and Rabbinic Orthodoxy to the words of the prophets of Israel will finally bring the necessary change:

Malachi 4:5 in King James-style Bibles, and Malachi 3:23 in Hebrew Bibles: “Behold I am sending to you Elijah the prophet to the faces of the coming of the big and terrifying Day of Yehovah. And he will return the heart of fathers upon [against] children and the heart of children upon [against] their fathers lest I will come, and I will cut the Land Kherem [devoted to destruction].”

Only then will the children finally rebel against the wrong teachings of the fathers, refusing the ethics of the fathers. They will instead follow the Teachings of Yehovah through His prophets, including Elijah. That will be the final removal of Israeli idolatry that has been maintained through Tradition for centuries, and will continue from our present time for centuries.

A continuance of Holocausts will not be enough to break the Tradition bond. The Tribulation, however, will finally bring Israel to the brink of total annihilation—not the slaughter of one third, but of nine tenths or more. That is many centuries off, since Yehovah promised three times through His prophets that there will be a thousand generations from the time of the establishing of the Covenant with Avraham to the end of the Millennium. Only during the seven-year Tribulation will the Israelis finally and desperately grasp to see if what Yeshua said was true.

John 14:13 “Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, will I do that so that the Father will be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do!”

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you so that ye shall go and bring forth fruit. And your fruit shall remain in order that whatsoever ye shall ask from the Father in my name, He will give you it.

John 16:23 “And ye shall ask me nothing in that day. Faith! Faith, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, He will give you it. 24Ye have asked nothing in my name to this point. Ask, and ye shall receive so that your joy will be full. 25I have spoken these things to you in proverbs. But the time comes when I shall no more speak to you in proverbs, but rather, I shall show you plainly from the Father. 26Ye shall ask in my name at that day. And I don’t say to you that I will pray the Father for you, 27for the Father Himself loves you because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.”

When various Jewish groups on the run and in great trouble from murderous enemies call out to Yehovah, and He does nothing, then when they hear that calling to Yehovah in the Name of Yeshua (Salvation) always brings what was requested, that will bring most Jewish individuals to reconsider whether there might be a connection between Yeshua and Yehovah.

Romans 2:4 “The goodness of God leads thee to repentance!”

Addendum

Messianic (Christian) Judaism

Those who participate in this form of ‘Judaism’ (though all other Judaisms disclaim any connection with them) are just as idolatrous and wrong as the rest. Their ‘Yeshua’ or ‘Y’shua’ is as far from the Biblical ‘New Covenant’ Yeshua as HaShem and Elokenu is from Yehovah the Gods of Avraham, Isaac and Jacob. They, like the Orthodox, will not and cannot acknowledge that their deity isn’t the One described in the Bible. These groups take on parts of the same traditions that have kept Israel from taking texts literally. These groups are also heavily into a Jewish form of replacement theology.

These Messianics use the same erroneous techniques that both ‘Christians’ and Rabbis have employed, mixing the two together to come up with a hybrid. Their services are more akin to Reform Judaism, often with circle dancing thrown in. Thus, they rejoice in their own salvation while Israel remains in danger from enemies and in unbelief. That is the acme of self-centeredness. They prove themselves cut off from Israel, while they claim that they have returned to the true God of the Bible. They do not take texts literally that they don’t like, and their Traditions include a fear of their own ‘rabbis’ instead of the fear of Yehovah.

Any form of Judaism will not represent the faith of the Tenach. None of the Saints in the Bible would have fit into any forms of Judaism—not in faith, and not in practice, any more than the Yeshua described in the ‘New Testament’ would have fit into modern church memberships. Truth is not consistent in creeds. It was entrusted to the Jews, and will always be entrusted to the Jews wherever they go and whatever they personally believe.

Romans 3:1 What advantage, then, has the Jew? Or, what profit is there of circumcision? 2Much every way!—chiefly because the oracles of God were committed unto them!

Messianic Judaism seems like a good compromise between being Jewish in tradition and being Christian in faith, but it isn’t. It has propagated the importance of Tradition over taking texts literally. Thus, it will also guarantee the propagation of error that will lead to new and fresh Holocausts that Israel never expected. (Israel would have known had Israel truly believed those oracles of God.)

Luke 19:41 And when [Yeshua] was come near, He beheld the city [Jerusalem]. And He wept over it, 42saying, “If thou had known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things unto thy peace! But now they are hidden from thine eyes. 43For the days shall come upon thee that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side. 44And they shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee. And they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another because thou knew not the time of thy visitation.”

Jewish ignorance of the details of the plans of Yehovah the God of Israel include ignorance of the things that are unto Jerusalem’s peace. Wrongly understanding what pleases this God is deadly.
