Stood - perf-act-ind - histemi = to stand against in the sense of antagonism.
Deu 4:19-27; Deu 28:63-68 - God told Israel that if she continued to rebel against Him she would suffer persecution more than any other nation in human history.
Jer 29:18 - because she rejected the word of God, Israel was told that she would be a plague to people wherever she went.
The Crusaders massacred the Israelites under the pretext that they were god killers; from May to July 1096, 12,000 Jews were killed in the Rhine land.
On Nov 1, +1290 all Jews were expelled from England under penalty of hanging.
From spring to autumn in the year 1298, 100,000, Jews were killed in Franconia, Bavaria, and Austria.
In September 1306, 100,000 Jews were expelled from France under the threat of death.
In 1348 the Jews were accused of causing the black plague and a million were killed.
On August 2, 1492, the Inquisition drove 300,000 Jews out of Spain under the threat of death.
From 1648-1658 about 400,000 Polish Jews were killed.
Under Adolf Hitler, over 6,000,000 European Jews were butchered in concentration camps.
Isa 5:6 And I will lay it waste; it will not be pruned or hoed, but briars and thorns will come up. I will also charge the clouds to rain no rain on it.
Deu 11:17 the anger of the Lord will be kindled against you, and he will shut up the heavens so that there will be no rain and the ground will not yield its fruit; and you will perish quickly from the good land which the Lord is giving you.
Zec 7:14 but I scattered them with a storm wind among all the nations whom they have not known. Thus the land is desolated behind them, so that no one went back and forth, for they made the pleasant land desolate.
One of the many natural laws that TLJC has put into operation to control human history = passive arrogance demands the function of active arrogance against it.
Passive arrogance accepts freedom and prosperity totally apart from human virtue and a sense of responsibility.
Negative volition, apostasy, and passive arrogance or indifference creates the vacuum which attracts the persecution of active arrogance, holocaust and historical disaster.
Active arrogance punishes passive arrogance until the active arrogance through prosperity also becomes passive.
In Revelation, Satan with active arrogance frustrated by his fall from heaven in the middle of the tribulation is the instrument of punishment of the Jews in the last half of the tribulation.
The ten horns and the beast represent political and historical degeneracy in the tribulation period. The harlot or the prostitute represents religious degeneracy.
Historical degeneracy persecutes religious degeneracy in every generation.
A holocaust occurs in the last half of the tribulation, when the beast (political or historical degeneracy) destroys the prostitute (religious degeneracy).
Through cosmic involvement these Jews have entered into a state of passive arrogance, which always attracts active arrogance.
The group who practice anti-Semitism generally possess an active arrogance plus evil.
Zec 2:5 For I, declares the Lord, will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.
Zec 2:8b For thus says the Lord of hosts, he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.
Mal 3:17 They [born-again Jews] are His jewels.
Isa 62:3 They [true Israel] are His crown of glory.
