Once a curse but now a blessing


Once a curse but now a blessing

‘And it shall come to pass, 
that as ye were a curse among the heathen, 
O house of Judah, and house of Israel; 
so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing:
 fear not, but let your hands be strong.’
 Zechariah 8:13

Suggested Further Reading: 
Romans 11:13–24

In the dark ages, to be a Jew was to be deserving of all scorn and cruelty, and of no pity or consideration. 

To what exactions, to what fines, to what imprisonments and tortures, have not the sons of Jacob been subjected by the professed followers of the Messiah? It is perhaps the greatest of all modern miracles, that there should be one Jew upon earth who is a Christian, for the treatment they have received from pretended Christians has been enough to make them hate the name of Jesus; it has not been simply villainous, but diabolical. 

Devils in hell could not be more cruel to their victims than professed Christians have been to the sons of Abraham. 
They have been a curse indeed.

 Among all nations they have been a hissing and a byword.
 But the day is coming, and is dawning already, when the whole world shall discern the true dignity of the chosen seed, and shall seek their company, because the Lord has blessed them. 

In that day when Israel shall look upon him whom they have pierced, and shall mourn for their sins, the Jew shall take his true rank among the nations as an elder brother and a prince.

 The covenant made with Abraham, to bless all nations by his seed, is not revoked; heaven and earth shall pass away, but the chosen nation shall not be blotted out from the book of remembrance. 

The Lord has not cast away his people; he has never given their mother a bill of divorcement; he has never put them away; in a little wrath he has hidden his face from them, but with great mercies will he gather them.

For meditation: 

We should thank God for the Jews; through them he gave us his Word (Romans 3:2; 9:4) and his Son (Romans 9:5); 
he still has blessings to give to the world through them (Romans 11:12). 
If you blame them for Christ’s death, remember that he died for sinners, and that you, as a sinner, were also responsible.
