TO MY ESTEEMED AND MOST HELPFUL FRIEND
DR. JACOB HYMAN
OF LOS ANGELES
A HEBREW CHRISTIAN WHOSE
“HEART’S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD”
IS THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE
HIS LORD AND MASTER
IT WOULD be hazardous for anyone to attempt to predict the future of the United States, Great Britain or any of the great nations of today, but one who knows his Bible can predict, in considerable detail, the future of the Jewish people. From beginning to end, this people has had its history already written, and in our day its movements furnish a key with which we may unlock the meaning of world events.
Who now doubts that the World War was fought to open the way for the Jew to return to the Holy Land, after long centuries of absence from home? Who doubts that the Great War marked the beginning of the end of the times of the Gentiles?
The political world is in a state of utter confusion today. The economic world is a hopeless tangle. Rulers and statesmen in every nation are puzzled and fearful, making a desperate effort to be optimistic. In the midst of all this confusion and uncertainty, we find the Jewish question occupying the front pages of the papers day after day, and in diplomatic circles and halls of government, men are debating over the question of what is to be done about the Jew.
Some insist that the Jew is the cause of all humanity’s ills, and give themselves vigorously to the work of spreading propaganda that must ultimately result in open persecution and bloodshed.
There are Christians who seem to understand prophecy as teaching that we may expect the Jew, in this age, to enslave the Gentiles and gain a stranglehold upon all nations.
There is a pitifully small number who seek to expose the fantastic stories of the Jew-haters and to stem the rising tide of anti-Semitism.
Nations affected by Hitlerism, seek to drive the Jews out and at the same time use their best efforts to keep them from getting into Palestine, or to stir up the enmity of the Arabs against those Jews who already have gained entrance to the land.
Thus the Jew is everywhere talked about, much lied about, little prayed about. Those who have no knowledge of prophecy foresee the time of “Jacob’s trouble” around the corner.
The discerning Bible student knows that the Jews must remain the “tail of the nations” until the millennial age, and see no Scriptural warrant for the fear that designing Jews are shortly to plunge the world into a depression which will place all Gentiles at their mercy.
The Author’s earnest prayer is that these chapters may open the eyes of many to the spiritual peril of participation in the persecution of the Jews. God grant that many shall be stirred to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” and to show every kindness “to the least of these,” our Lord’s brethren according to the flesh, in this hour when they are feeling the birth pains of the nation that is yet to be.
