Skip to comments.Question to Christians From a Jewish Friend
Posted on 12/08/2004 11:08:38 PM PST by Mike10542
Hey fellow freepers, having been swept up in the battle of conservatives first liberals and believers in God vs. non-beleivers I clearly have chosen the right side here (hence me writing on Free Republic). The alignment of Jews like myself and many fellow Christians is one that I feel is very necesary to win the war against evil and have peace in our time. Although I choose to ignore all the leftists and others who try to break up this loving partnership by saying "They are only on your side becuase they want the Jews in control of Jerusalem so Christ returns," I am looking to explore what the Bible really teaches about the Jewish fate from the Christian perspective. It is hard to find what the majority opinion is because the internet is, well, the internet. What I have made out so far is that during rapture I beleive 2/3's of Jews are killed, but one third survive. So my questions are:
1) What do the 2/3's of Jews die from (war, just happens????)
2) What happens to the remaning 1/3 of Jews after they survive?
3) Do any of this remaining 1/3 of Jews make it past the final judgement of God (some interpertations say no, others say the remaining Jews are allowed to pass once accepting God and I think Christ)
I truly beleive in my Jewish fate as I have been raised Jewish, but my mom is Christian. So each religion I respect and believe are good. Ultimately, I hope us Jews and Christians both make it together to the promised land (and only the Muslims are sent to hell!)
Thanks for all your answers. Also, feel free to direct me to anywhere where I can learn more about this subject.

"Paging Hal Lindsey, Hal Lindsey, paging Hal Lindsey..."
There is a lot of interpretation of these things, and as there are 2 billion nominal Christians, there are at least as many opinions on that. If I lived in Israel I would be somewhat fatalistic about the ultimate outcome judging from history in the region and first Saddam and now Iran saying they intend to burn the place. Beyond that, who knows?
Mr.Lindsey sells a lot of books, and makes a good deal of money. Doesn't mean he is right however.
Call it a hunch, but i don't think God is going to break out a calculator and DAMN the third who don't divide evenly... just a hunch...
How do you know the Rapture won't happen?
I'm sure you're right though...
Isaiah 45:17 (KJV)
But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
Isaiah 45:25 (KJV)
In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

I am just wondering you know, I want to know what the literal interpertation is of the bible, I non-partisan point of view of what the Bible says about Jews fate (if there is such a thing).
This is the best I could find in a moment's notice: http://www.thetrumpet.com/geo/na/docs/issues/200412/37.asp
Exactly!! I just had a rupture in my bathroom and it was no fun!
I know of no true Christian that wishes hell for anyone.
Ayy good websites about what the bible really says about Jews fate? I want it from a new testament perspective, I guess a lot of the bible is left to interpratation, so it might be hard to get a good answer.
What do you wish for the Jewish people and all of humankind ?
I was just wondering if you have some sort of insider knowledge.
My opinion is it might happen, it might not. Who knows for sure except God?
And what kind of disingenuous question is that? Seems along the lines of "So when did you stop beating your wife?".
