IT IS FRIGHTENING TODAY TO SEE MANY PREACHERS HAVE GONE ALL OUT FOR THE JEWS, especially since their success was so skilfully engineered in Palestine, but you must remember that they do not change their identity, their way of life, or, their method of living. Also remember that nothing had changed as to what Jesus had to say about them as He identified them when He walked the earth and in His ministry called the Jews the children of the devil. He doesn’t now turn around here in our time and call them the children of God and “the chosen people”, as so many Christians are doing today! The Jews are still the same seed of the serpent and still up to the same chicanery that they were using in the days when Jesus identified and denounced them.
In Chapter 8 of the Book of John, Jesus says the Jews are of their father the devil, and the lusts of their father they would do; that their father was a liar and a murderer from the beginning. We find that Jesus denounced them thoroughly and identified them, and all Jewry was in this same boat. Jesus said they could not understand His speech, and that they had no spiritual capacity whatsoever. This is brought out very clearly, and we use these passages quite often. Remember, we have only four books in our Bible with the Words of Jesus in them, and yet He spent more time denouncing Jewry than any other fact brought out in the New Testament.
