Why does Satan so passionately despise the Jews? For one things, it is a reflection of his hatred for God. The Jews are God’s chosen people! By hurting them he seeks to hurt the Lord and take revenge for his own sentence of death. His effort to annihilate the Jews is also an attempt to discredit the Lord, since He has sworn in His word that they will never be destroyed. If Israel ceases to exist as a distinct people, then God did not, or could not, keep His promise. That would mean that He was powerless or that He lied!
But there is another reason the devil despises the Jews: The salvation of Israel means the return of Jesus, the resurrection of the righteous, the revival of the Church and the resurrection of the Church and the restoration of the earth. The fulfillment of the Jews’ destiny will seal the devil’s doom. Yes, “the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet” (Romans 16:20)…and he is beginning to squirm. The time to favor Israel is upon us and Satan is quaking with fear. The countdown has begun.

My prayer for today:
Lord, raise up believers who have spiritual eyes and ears, like Daniel did for Jeremiah’s prophecy, so that these believers will fast and pray, knowing it is the season for the Jew and Gentile to become the one new man in Christ Jesus. (Based on Daniel 9:2 and Ephesians 2:15)
Join with me on Tuesday’s to pray and fast for the one new man to finally come forth in the Body of Christ.
…that he might create in Himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace (Ephesians 2:15)
