I TOO, AM THAT JEW:
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. -Romans 2:28-29
I’m back from Kurdistan, N. Iraq. The last two days I was there, I felt an intense sadness come over me. Maybe it was the cold grey rainy winter weather, maybe the virus I fought the whole time I was there contributed to it but honestly it was much more. It was the weight, the shear weight of what our people over there carry every day. I wasn’t even sure how to articulate this deep melancholy, how to put it into words. Then I came across this masterful piece on YouTube. “I AM THAT JEW” This says it all. The hope, the fear, the optimism and the disgust and weariness, yet the courage and strength to keep moving ahead with faith, believing for a better tomorrow. To radical Islam there is no distinction between Christians and Jews 0r for that matter not even other Muslims whom they’ll just as readily kill as the infidel if they aren’t in agreement with them.

Very well then, my Lord was born and lived all His short life on this planet as a Jew, when He was crucified, the Romans in mockery, nailed a sign to His cross, “King Of The Jews.” This being the case, then I too am that Jew. Please take the time to follow the link, this is truly something important for you to understand, especially in this age of rampant raw insanity. Only when we look beyond it do we see and begin to comprehend HE Whom the ancients called El Olam, translated from Hebrew as, The Everlasting God. HE who works His will through all the generations. HE is the GOD of the Ages knowing the end from the very beginning.
As you watch the presentation my hope is that your heart will be strengthened and encouraged. That you will understand that we are involved in an intense spiritual conflict, a war for the mind and soul of humanity itself. The Jews and we Christians are right at the heart of this conflict. Surrounded by their enemies, world opinion often turns against them, unflinchingly they stand in the most unpromising of circumstances and the darkest of times, yet, at the end of the day, in victory or defeat they’ll raise their glasses together, these Jews, in that most beautiful of all toasts and in faith proclaim “Too Life!
