If the question is who is Anti-Israel, then the answer is Islam or Muslim. But let’s focus on the anti-Messiah; who are they?
Remember the phrase, “History repeats itself.” In the time of Yeshua, who were his persecutors or enemies? Apparently the Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes and the Cohanim, Priests or who we call now the Orthodox.
In the time of the disciples, who are their persecutors? The same Orthodox Jews. Who was Yochanan referring to as the anti-Messiah? Let’s read 1 John 4:2 and 3.
Here is how you recognize the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges that Yeshua the Messiah came as a human being is from God, and every spirit which does not acknowledge Yeshua is not from God — in fact, this is the spirit of the anti-Messiah. You have heard that he is coming. Well, he’s here now, in the world already!
And Yochanan also said the following in 2 John 7
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, people who do not acknowledge Yeshua the Messiah’s coming as a human being. Such a person is a deceiver and an anti-Messiah.
Who rejected the Messiah back then until now? The Orthodox.
In Revelation 3:9, Yeshua says,
I know how you are suffering and how poor you are (though in fact you are rich!), and I know the insults of those who call themselves Jews but aren’t — on the contrary, they are a synagogue of the Adversary.
Who is Yeshua referring to as “synagogue of the Adversary?” Them that call themselves Jews but are not. They are the Orthodox.
Because being a real Jew is not in the outward appearance but in the heart as Apostle Paul says in Romans 2:28-29.
For the real Jew is not merely Jewish outwardly: true circumcision is not only external and physical. 29 On the contrary, the real Jew is one inwardly; and true circumcision is of the heart, spiritual not literal; so that his praise comes not from other people but from God.
If you have questions or comments, post it down below and let’s talk about it. Shalom.
