SID: You know, when the Messiah came to Earth some 2000 years ago, the world was a little simpler than it is today. The world was divided into two people groups. There were Jewish people, who lived in the Land of Israel, and then there were gentiles. The word “gentile” means nations. There were people that lived in all the other nations and there were people that lived in Israel. It was fairly simple. But I want you to understand there is a call by God for people that are from the gentile nations and it’s different than the call by God for people that are from Israel. Let me explain this from Scripture. Romans 11:11 says, “The call for those from the nations.” And you know what? I find very few people from the nations that know what God Himself has called you to do. So this alone is worth your watching me. Romans 11:11: “To provoke them,” that’s the Jewish people, “to jealousy salvation has come to the gentiles.” In other words, the call of the gentile is to provoke the Jew to jealousy. Meaning you’ve got something that we Jewish people want and it’s time to show it. If not now, when? Now the call of the Jew, very different. The call of the Jew is found in John, Chapter 4, Verse 22: “Salvation is of the Jews.” A gentile, someone from the nations, that believes in Jesus owes a debt of gratitude to the Jewish people because some Jewish person somewhere on a chain of people was truthful to share the Good News with gentiles. “Salvation is of the Jew.” Now if you get, if the gentiles do their job and reach the Jews, if the Jewish people do their job and reach the gentiles, guess what you got, the whole world. Oh God, you’re so marvelous. You make it so simple. We make it complex. Now the key, and very few people know this, there is a key for the judgment on nations. It’s always been, but especially in the last days, it’s increasing with intensity. You see, the judgment of God is contingent on what you do with Israel. God will punish Israel for sin, but God uses Israel to punish the nations for sin. Let me share a couple scriptures. Genesis 12:3: “I God will bless those who bless you,” that’s the Jewish people, “and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on Earth will be blessed through you.” Or the reverse is true. All the families of the earth if they come against you will be cursed. Again, this is so simple, but so basic. Now nine out of the 10 worst economic disasters in the history of America since the records were kept by FEMA occurred, nine out of 10, within days, hours of the United States coming against Israel. Nine out of 10 of the worst economic disasters. Obadiah 1:15: “The day is near when I the Lord will judge all godless nations. As you have done to Israel, so it will be done to you.” You say, Sid, that’s Old Testament. No. That was just the only book that the first church had, the Old Testament. They didn’t even have the New Testament. You know that. But let me give you the same thing in the New Testament for those that don’t understand it’s all God’s word. Matthew 25:40 is the separation of goat nations and sheep nations separated on one issue. Here’s the one issue: “And the king will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you, in as much you did it to one of the least of these my brethren,'” Jesus says, “You did it to me.” That’s the issue between the goat nation or sheep nation. A goat has a mind of its own. A sheep nation follows the shepherd. “As you have done to one of the least of these my brethren.” I looked up the word “brethren” in the Greek. Do you know what it means? “From the womb.” His physical brethren. Jewish people. Jesus is saying this. You see, I believe the dividing line between the true body of believers and the counterfeited will be on this single issue. And I promise you this, if you don’t understand the Jew in Israel from God’s perspective then you will go into further heresy. I promise you that. But if you do, what’s the favor of God?
