What You Owe to Six Million Jews
Immediately following the Shoah, the winds of global antipathy toward the Jewish race shifted, if ever so briefly, toward sympathy, a vast sea of anti-Zionism parted down the middle, and the remnant of Jewry at last found a way back to the Land.
But how can we enjoy the Land now? How can one hope to merit the terrible cost of the Land? How can one sing and joy at harvest times when one remembers people like Anne Frank, the exuberant, optimistic, young girl that the Nazis at Belsen transformed into an emaciated wraith.
The restoration of the state of Israel blessed all Believers. Six million lives redeemed Israel and blessed Believers (for the re-establishment of Israel benefited all Believers), gave an immeasurable gift to all of us. Should we accept such a gift and then refuse to help the ones who gave us this gift?
When Yeshua returns we must in all respect and humility entreat Him to redeem the souls of those who blessed so many. Like Abraham our Father who entreated the Judge of the Universe to show mercy to his family, we must one day, face to face with Yeshua, entreat Him to show mercy to the Six Million (and others). If you are a Believer then those Six Million are members of your family.
You owe them that much.
