About the prayer

Anti-Semitism – is not some new trend. It’s an ancient spiritual opposition to God through hatred of His chosen people – Jews.

Literally from the first pages of the Bible we come across the examples of anti-Semitism: pharaoh (Exodus 1-14), Balak (Numbers 22), Amalek, Aman (book of Esther). All of them hated the Jewish people and did their best to exterminate them physically and spiritually.

Bloody examples of anti-Semitism can easily be traced throughout the history in most countries and cultures - throughout all the epochs of development of mankind.

 These are the most notorious:

  • Crusades: initiated the outbreak of violence and massacre of Jews in Europe and Palestine, starting the “tradition” of “Jew bashing”. Jewish blood Libel that originated in medieval Britain and served as a “successful” massacre tool to deal with unwanted Jews in many countries.

There were mass banishments of Jews from European countries. They were forced to forfeit of all their property.

  • Horrors of inquisition: It’s hard to believe, but a very long time ago anti-Semitism was in perfect step with the church!
  • Koliivshchina and Khmelnitchyna periods: Sweeping massacre of Jews during Koliivshchina and Khmelnitchyna period on the territory of modern Ukraine, Poland and Belarus.
  • WWII: Almost complete and unthinkable in its cruelty was the extermination of the Jewish population in Europe during World War Two. Millions of children and adult were burnt in gas chambers of Nazi camps, executed by shooting and tortured only because they belonged to Jewish nation. These events are known as “Shoa” – or the catastrophe of mankind.

And the list goes on…

 

Today, 78 years later after this horror, anti-Semitic attitudes are getting stronger in many educated and humanistic countries. Anti-Semitism and Nazism take new unexpected forms. And now they influence not only the Jews, but Christians as well.

Why is this happening? Such attitudes are caused and fuelled by certain spirits, fighting against God.

Anti-Semitism is the devil’s weapon.

One of the main reasons the devil fiercely desires to exterminate the Jews is that the Messiah – Yeshua ha Mashiah was supposed to come and came from this nation. The Second coming of Messiah, according to the prophesies, hinges on the salvation of the Jewish people.

In the Word of God there are statements of how dangerous it is “to let anti-Semitism loose” (Obadiah 1:10-17, Joel 3:2, Romans 11:17-26). This brings curses not only for anti-Semites personally and their descendants, but for the whole territory, where people have turned a blind eye to these Godless spirits.

We believe that if we unite our strength in prayer, we will be able to actively stand up to this evil in the world! God doesn’t call us to remain silent, He calls us to acknowledge the facts of anti-Semitism, repent and together bless the Jewish people, Israel (Numbers 24:9). This will bring freedom from the curse and release the God’s will and blessing upon our land and our nations!
