Israel, Backslidden

Israel’s Leaders Cause Her to Sin

[Haters of the Jews are quick to justify themselves by pointing out specific evil committed by the Israeli government, but such judgment is not justice. For example, the U.S. government is much more evil than the American people it rules over, and American neo-Nazis do not blame the American people for the worldwide wickedness committed by the CIA in serving the agenda of the same “global elite” that elements of the Israeli government serve.]

Isaiah 3:12 “O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.”

2nd Chronicles 21:11 “Moreover [Jehoram] made high places in the mountains of Judah, and caused the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, and compelled Judah thereto.”

33:9 “So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen. . . .”

Jeremiah 23:13 “. . . the [false] prophets of Samaria . . . prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.”

50:6 “My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.”

Malachi 2:7-8 “For the priest’s lips . . . have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.”

Israel Punished by the Lord Because of the Sin of Her Rulers

2nd Kings 21:9-16 “Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations . . . I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.”

1st Chronicles 21:1 “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.”

vs. 14-17 “So the Lord sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.”

2nd Chronicles 24:17-18 “. . . the princes of Judah . . . left the house of the Lord God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.”

Israel Played the Harlot [While it is true that Israel “collectively speaking” has repeatedly turned against God in the past, “collectively speaking,” every nation on earth has done so! (America, for example, is presently a spiritual cesspool!)]

Judges 8:33-35 “And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made Baal_berith their god.”

Ezekiel 16:1-63 “But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one that passed by; his it was.” (Israel, spoken of by the Lord here as though a woman, became rich and powerful, and then betrayed the Lord in spiritual fornication, exactly as America has done.)

Jeremiah 2:1-32 “Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.”

3:1-20 “Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the Lord.”

13:10-11 “This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods. . . . . . . I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel . . . saith the Lord; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.”
