Today, reply is made explaining the acceptance of Jews by Christian believers.  One of the fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” using the name “Anonymous” (no profile information appears) posted the following:

 

Why do Christians blame Jews for Jesus death yet without his death your faith is meaningless by your own admission so why?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.  He that believeth on him is not condemned:  but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.  (John 3:  16-21, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  The de facto Covenants? (12/30/2016); Herein Is True Love (10/21/2016); Tools for Revelation? (10/26/2015); The Remnant? (10/12/2015); Ye Are Abraham’s Seed (07/10/2015); Secular Israel? (04/08/2015); A Common Heritage? (07/13/2014); Asleep Through the Holocaust? (07/14/2014)

 

“Anonymous”, the operations of divinity using the cross have not been provided for the destruction of the Jews, the Gentiles, or even, of the Devil.  The events to make immortal, incorruptible Deity knowable, known, and visible to all created beings and living creatures (we say, revelation) have also included the proclamation of sacred judgment against sin that uses such elements as admonitions, blessing, covenant, curses, death, forgiveness, law, promises, prophecy, and resurrection from the dead.  The important work for mature followers of the Lord is not to attack, punish, or wage holy war against others.  Rather, it is to minister comfort, correction, and love to those caught up and otherwise unable to escape the “history” of sin upon the earth, and within their own personal lives.  Only those lacking sacred knowledge, experiences of holy sacraments, and necessary spiritual growth continue to accuse or “blame” anyone.  It is not that sin no longer exists, or wrath from GOD against sin is no longer being expressed.  It is that judgment has become clearer as operations by the Holy Spirit for cleansing and expressing love.  Mature Christians believe the Jews were chosen as a people of GOD to demonstrate the tragic consequences of breaking covenant, disobedience of divine law, guilt, and iniquity (i.e., persisting in rebellion) as well as to proclaim access to GOD through atonement, rebirth, repentance, and sanctification.  The appearance of Jesus Christ upon the earth was to further recover and restore those who belong to GOD through faith and other aspects of their spirit endowment from the makeup of Deity.  Consider again the following:

(1.)  Matthew 18:  7-11, King James Version (KJV):  7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!  8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee:  it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.  9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee:  it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.  10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.  11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

(2.)  Mark 2:  16-17, KJV:  16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?  17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick:  I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

(3.)  Matthew 27:  22-26, KJV:  22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.  23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.  24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person:  see ye to it.  25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.  26 Then released he Barabbas unto them:  and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Ezekiel 18:  20-24, KJV:  20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:  the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.  21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.  22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him:  in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.  23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GODand not that he should return from his ways, and live?  24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned:  in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
