Who is Really Looking for the Throne of HaMashiach

Reader comment on item: Racing Against History

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Mar 2, 2018 at 13:19

.....'be patient, and things will work out;' work out for whom?

Richman's book of arranging defenders against then rampant anti-Semitism and the ranting of that next to the Satanic leader of the Nationalist Socialist party in Europe tells of a paradox that appears to court the Jewish at every epoch of their worldly existence; and there are yet those even within the modern Jewish society that fully, cannot understand why. After exiles galore and the destruction of their Temples, twice, there appears another rise in anti-Semitism that appears when the next wave of an unbelieving world is rising up to exterminate the Jewish presence on behalf of the world's fascination with the demonism of the Adversary's hatred of Godly things. This cannot be made up; it is happening as this is being written.
The war of the nations in its next attempt to destroy Jewry may be understood in the context of the Scriptures that have declared judgment yet again for an unbelieving 'nation of Israel'; that it occurs in the face of an ancient pronouncement that says to that people, return to your recognition of your Eternal Sovereign so that He may begin again to bless them according to the promise given to Abraham. That promise is not given to a democratic national entity; for there is no democracy promised to the people of Israel, only a King; HaMashiach, is foretold.
The Zionist society that was left to be formed by the modern Jewish presence by predecessors looked forward to a democratic state, bereft of any of religious symbolisms as prescribed in scripture and the secularists in Jewish leadership struggle with maintaining that in an increasingly hostile antizionist world. Richman's book describes that struggle in worldly terms and dismisses the country's need to seek the return of the king before Israeli sovereignty can be fully restored.
In the background, the world is trying to stop Israel from gaining back her rightful place given by God as the head of the nations and the worlds' complicity is foretold for times such as these. Richman's book serves as a warning: the Holy Hebrew Bible has been giving that same warning for millennia; but who is looking for the return of the Israel's King?
