You know what their problem is, completely? It is not us, not lack of knowledge, not persecution, not Christianity, not Muslims, not descendants of Ishmael, not Middle East real estate, not a false witness of Christ or the preaching of a false Christ. It is that they reject Jesus Christ, case closed. They were the ones who started it all. Little did they know that those they persecuted would grow, if only in name, to far outnumber them and have the tables turned on them. Their hatred, rejection and persecution of the Messiah and His own backfired on them. And the fruits of their planted seeds are great and heavy.
Yet, that is the way God has set it all up, beginning with salvation of the Gentiles.
