Trump Unites Jews and Christians – Israel Elections

  • Judaism in the last eight hundred years through Chassidism is becoming more spiritual assimilating many of its ideology with its prophets Isaiah, Jerimiah, Ezekiel is which are the foundation of Christian faith.
  • Religions all claim to be the only way, the only true representative of God. God is infinite and unlimited. Freedom is infinite and unlimited.
  • Trump has outwardly supported Netanyahu as Prime Minister in the elections. He said Israel needs a strong leader. He likes to work with Netanyahu.

President Trump in his speech to the Jewish Republican coalition showed his faithfulness to the State of Israel and the Jewish people. He has already declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel; and has supported the annexation of the Golan. He has also cancelled the Nuclear weapons agreement with Iran. In his speech to the Jewish Coalition of the Republican Party he promised to continue to support the Jewish people against Anti-Semitism.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an interesting observation a few weeks ago during the time of the holiday of Purim how America has reversed the decree against the Jewish people and the State of Israel through the Trump Administration similar to the way the decree was reversed in the story of Purim. In the story of Purim the Jewish people were living in Babylon after being exiled from Jerusalem by the Babylonians who had destroyed their holy temple. Haman one of leaders of Babylon part of the government of their King Achashverosh was an Anti-Semite, Jew hater. It is mentioned in the Book of Esther which is read on the holiday of Purim that Haman resented that the Jewish people refused to assimilate into the nation of Babylon and maintained their old ritual customs, dress and language. He coaxed the King Achashverosh to decree that all the Jews in their country would be exterminated. The story of Purim tells the miracle how a Jewish beautiful virgin girl Esther was encouraged by her step father Mordecai a leader of the Jewish people to try to become one of the queens of the King Achasverosh even though it was forbidden by the Torah intermarriage. By a miracle she was chosen by the king to be one of his queens living in his kingdom. King Achashverosh loved Esther who interfered with the plans of Haman to exterminate the Jews. It was written in the chronicles of the nation how Mordecai the step father of Esther had informed on two terrorists who had planned to kill Achashverosh. On night before the day of Purim Achashverosh woke up from sleep and opened up his chronicles to the page where it was written about how Mordecai had rescued him from assassination. He planned at the request of Haman to execute Mordecai the leader of the Jewish people and afterwards all the Jews living in Shushan a city in Babylon on the day of Purim. Esther had no difficulty making Achashverosh change his mind not to kill Mordecai. Instead his general Haman was executed. The decree was reversed.

Ivanka Trump married Jared Kushner in October 2009. To marry him she had to convert to Judaism. She was like Queen Esther who entered into the palace of the King Achashverosh in another way. Instead she entered into the palace of King David and the Jewish people by marrying Jared. In this way when Donald Trump became President of the USA Jared Kushner, Ivanka and his grandchildren became part of the White House. Naturally a father loves his children. President Trump and his policies against liberals who are against family life is one of the reasons for his faithfulness to Ivanka and Jared. The Liberals are a danger to the structure of family life in America. Gay marriage and abortion is a danger to the Old Way the Bible life. Many Jews have strayed away from tradition and have become leaders in the liberal way of America. This liberalism is also against Christianity. America which began as a Christian Protestant state is being threatened by values of Atheism. Free America is also an enemy to Islamic extremists. Christianity and Islam are part of the New Age of religion in the world. Judaism is from the Old Age. Judaism which is restricted by its strict laws of conversion cannot grow as quickly as Muslim faith. It is less of a threat to America. Judaism in the last eight hundred years through Chassidism is becoming more spiritual assimilating many of its ideology with its prophets Isaiah, Jerimiah, Ezekiel is which are the foundation of Christian faith. Judaism still has not changed but it is today more open to Messianic ideals.

Ivanka Trump was accepted to become a convert to Judaism and marry Jared Kushner. Queen Esther was accepted to be one of the queens of Achashverosh. Queen Esther did not reveal to the King that she was Jewish. Ivanka Trump did not reveal to the Orthodox Rabbis who converted her that she still believed in Jesus, or she was not required to denounce her belief in Jesus. Usually this is a requirement in an Orthodox conversion.

Jewish law is very rigid but today when the world has changed Jewish law also has had to accept changes. Today more of an emphasis is placed on truth and peace in Judaism than before. The Ultra-Orthodox will not accept the conversion of Ivanka for two reasons. She has not denounced Jesus. Sbe may have had an alternative motive in conversion which was her love of Jared. For sure there was divine providence, the hand of God in Ivanka becoming Jewish and Donald Trump becoming president at a critical time in Jewish history after the holocaust standing before the threat of another holocaust Nuclear Iran.

Jesus has saved many souls from suicide and hopelessness. Fundamentalists show little concern over those souls which need saving and show more concern over their nation and religion. Christianity came for the sake of salvation. The future of the world is becoming darker. There is more a need today for the Messiah. The Lubavitcher Rebbe at the end of his life spent most of his talks about the importance of the faith in the Messiah. Judaism like Muslim religions are fundamentalist. These religions are less concerned about the individual. They are more concerned about National Religious survival. Islam is a movement for a new world governed by Sharia. President Trump is a true Christian but maybe not a true Catholic. He is concerned about the happiness of Americans. Most people cannot be happy if they are poor. President Trump has improved the economy and reduced unemployment. President Trump is for freedom in America and abroad. People are happier when they have free choice. Forcing people to believe in God without free choice becomes dry religion without the heart of love. God desires the heart. Fundamentalists show less concern for love and more emphasis on fear of God.

Israel is a free state which is against Orthodox Judaism. The elections in Israel will be this Tuesday. The Ultra-Orthodox rabbinical court has published a statement prohibiting Jews from voting as it always does before elections. However there are religious parties in the government even though it is against Jewish law. The world needs fundamentalists. They are the foundations of faith in the world. Judaism is fundamentalist and also Islam. However today Jesus and President Trump rule the world. God rules the world and has made his appointment of President Trump as world leader. Religions all claim to be the only way, the only true representative of God. God is infinite and unlimited. Freedom is infinite and unlimited.

Trump has outwardly supported Netanyahu as Prime Minister in the elections. He said Israel needs a strong leader. He likes to work with Netanyahu.
