The crises of refugees are a hot topic today.
Imagine what it must be like to have an enemy intent on torture before killing you. Loss of everything you have owned, seeing your children slaughtered, running and hiding only to be betrayed by your neighbors. Murdered and buried in mass graves, including men, women and children of all ages. There seems to be no thought of compassion and the nightmare seems to go on and on.
As the people ask for help, country after country takes in a certain number of refugees. But there are so many people in need of assistance that the pleas are soon ignored. Meanwhile the wave of death seems to dog them no matter where they run or try to hide.
This description was the exact plight of the Jewish refugees of WWII. The enemy behind them, and countries closing their doors in front of them.
Did you think this description was about the current Muslim refugees? The similarity is uncanny, isn’t it?
For those countries that refused or limited their help for the Jewish people running from Hitler and his Nazi army, those same nations now are facing a refugee crisis again- but this time from the opposite side of God’s plans.
“I will make you into a great nation… I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse…” Genesis 12:3
All countries who refused to aid the Jews in the Holocaust are now clamoring to force everyone to accept the Muslims. Why did they not help the Jews in the time of the Holocaust? Now they are suffering the consequences. They have received what they have sown.
“Then the nations will know that I am the Lord…” Ezekiel 36:23b
How the nations of the world respond to the Jewish people will always determine their future.
“This is what the Lord Almighty says: In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.’” Zechariah 8:23
