Why the “Great Commission” still applies, regarding today’s Jews (and everybody)


Matthew 28:16-20 And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them.  And seeing him they adored: but some doubted.  And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.

Nowhere does the Bible suggest the heretical idea that any person or group of people, rejecting and disparaging Christ, can expect blessing from God. Nor do such people have the right to demand it from those who do obey God, the saints. Yet such obligation to bless and support unbelieving Jews is taught by evangelicals and Jews as the law of God.

Biblical Guidance in an Age of Delusion

What does the Bible really say about God’s attitude (and Christians’ duty) to Israel? It says God’s covenant and promises of spiritual and territorial blessing upon Abraham and his descendants were conditional upon obedience. God’s covenant with Abraham came into existence in response to Abraham’s obedience; it is sustained through the same obedience in his descendants.

Notice God’s conditional terms in the following foundational verses:

“Walk before Me and be blameless, and I will establish My covenant between Me and you.” –Genesis 17:1,2

“And in your seed, all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” –Genesis 22:18

“For I have chosen him in order that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice; in order that the Lord may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him (the blessings of God’s covenant).” –Genesis 18:19

And to Isaac, his son, God confirms: “…by your descendants shall all the nations of the earth be blessed: because Abraham obeyed Me…” — Genesis 26:4-5

The Palestinian covenant lays down God’s timeless requirement that Jews must follow Abraham’s example in order to enter Canaan and abide in it.

“If…you do not obey Me, by acts of hostility against Me, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you…” “You…I will scatter among the nations…” –Leviticus 26: 27, 28, 33

If Israel rebels, God warns, “you shall be torn from the land where you are entering to possess it…the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other…” –Deuteronomy 20: 63

However, if the Jews “return to the Lord your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul…then the Lord God will restore you from captivity…and gather you again from all the peoples where the Lord your God has scattered you.” –Deuteronomy 30: 2, 3 1

But national repentance and obedience was not part of Israel’s birth as a nation in 1948! Zionists pushed their way into Palestine through violence, deceit, and brutal dispossession of the Christians and Muslims living in the Promised Land. Israel today is a spiritually counterfeit, racist state founded in utter rejection of their true messiah, Jesus Christ. (See, The Simple Explanation for Mid-East Strife)
