Muslims, Christians and Jews!



When the dragon realized it had been thrown down to the earth, it tried to make trouble for the woman who had given birth to a son.   But the woman was given two wings like those of a huge eagle, so she could fly into the desert. There she would escape from the snake and be taken care of for a time, two times, and half a time.

The snake then spewed out water like a river to sweep the woman away.  But the earth helped her and swallowed the water that had come from the dragon's mouth.   This made the dragon terribly angry with the woman. So it started a war against the rest of her children. They are the people who obey God and are faithful to what Jesus did and taught.

Revelation 12:13-17

If you really are a follower of Jesus Christ, then you are the enemy of Satan! And, of course, if you are the enemy of Satan, he will do whatever he can do to defeat you! These verses quite clearly say that when you rescue Jews from the attacks of the Devil you then become the target of Satan! When you help Israel you get both the blessing of God and the anger of Satan!

You may say, "But the Jews rejected and still reject Jesus. How can they be special to God?" Those who ask that question have forgotten about the love any father has for a wayward child. Jews did not become special to God by their faith and they do not lose that status by their lack of faith.

You may wonder, "If God loves Jews then He must hate Muslims!" Oh no, not at all! The Cross of Jesus was for everyone! If your "theology" is correct in every way, Jesus invites you to come to Him. And if your theology is totally confused, Jesus still died for you and wants you to call on Him. He is the only way to God and is the expert at correcting the errors of understanding for those who give their hearts to Him!

The fundamental message of the Gospel is that Jesus loves you! It doesn't matter who you are or what you have been, the love of Jesus is focused on your heart. Coming to Jesus is not about "religion," it is about "relationship!"

"Lord Jesus, I want to know You better today. Correct my understanding as You draw my heart ever closer to You. And may You be praised forever! Amen."
