Dear Abouna Labib,
This is my reply to the Christian Zionist. I don't have an email address for them.
You call yourselves Christians and "prophecy" to Israel and yet the name of Jesus is not mentioned once.
You talk about "the coming of the Messiah to the Mount of Olives" yet not once you declare to the Jewish people that Jesus the Messiah the son of God and the son of Mary has come as a descendant of David and have saved them and saved all of mankind.
You talk about encouraging 'the people of Israel as to the justness of their cause and certainty of their redemption" and not once you declare to them that "God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him should perish, but have eternal life."
You talk about giving "guidance to the Church as to her solemn spiritual and moral responsibilities in this hour" yet you ignore the injustice, persecution and the terror that the State of Israel is inflicting on the Christians in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Beit-Jala and Beit-Sahour and elsewhere in the country. These Christians are the descendant of the Church founded by Jesus the Messiah and built on his Apostles.
By their fruits you shall know them. Where are the fruits the Spirit in the way Israel is treating its neibours.
Where is the Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Gal :22
You set yourselves as prophets go and learn the meaning of the Scrpiture
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 3:8
The Messiah indeed is coming. He is coming to judge the living and the dead and His Kingdom will have no end. His first coming was to save but his second coming is for Judgement.
