The Rapture Report – Rising and Increasing Anti-Semitism Another Sign of the End Times
By Chris Schang
As many Bible prophecy students know the rebirth of the modern State of Israel in the Middle East in 1948 was the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. While many Jews have returned to their ancient homeland and the population of Israel continues to rise every year, there are still many Jews who remain “scattered” among the nations.
With the Islamic invasion and migration of Europe well under way, we are finding more and more anti-semitism coming into play in Europe. But it is not just in Europe where anti-semitism is raising its ugly head. We are seeing more and more examples of out in the open types of anti-semitism being made in all parts of the world including America in these end times. I believe this is not a coincidence and that it is another sure sign that we are in the last days. As the Islamic hordes bring their ancient Middle East anti-semitism with them to Europe, many Jews are moving back to Israel. I believe this is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy as well.
Just the past week the celebrity “rapper” IceCube posted many different anti-semitic pictures on his Twitter account. One of which is the header graphic for this article. These blatant displays of anti-semitic images is very disturbing and shows that even during major social and political charged events like the recent George Floyd killing and ongoing riots across the nation, that the anti-semites never take time off from their war against the Jews.
The Billboard magazine website had the following report regarding IceCube’s anti-semitic social media posts:
While many of his peers have been preaching messages decrying injustice and intolerance, rapper Ice Cube spent Wednesday (June 10) confoundingly posting images that appeared to amplify anti-Semitic tropes tying Jews to the oppression of black people. They also appeared to nod to debunked conspiracy theories about the noses of Egypt’s sphinxes that first surfaced as attempts to manipulate black voters in the 2016 election.
The day-long Twitter spree — which follows a Trump-level torrent of tweets over the past two weeks — featured dozens of posts kicked off with a retweet of an image of a dog defecating on a Confederate flag, before pivoting to a series of image of black cubes — including one suspended inside a five-pointed Jewish star — which are sometimes referred to as the “Black Cube of Saturn.” The Daily Beast wrote that placing the occult image inside the star “heavily implies that the Jewish people are stoking the flames” of division, while the cube has also been tied to claims that Jewish people were behind the 9/11 terror attacks and COVID-19.
While a spokesperson for the rapper, 50, had not returned Billboard’s request for comment at press time, in response to someone leveling a charge of anti-Semitism against the him, Cube wrote, “What if I was just pro-Black? This is the truth brother. I didn’t lie on anyone. I didn’t say I was anti anybody. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. I’ve been telling my truth.” He also added the statement, “You know who I am and what I stand for. I believe in actual facts and I stand on the TRUTH alone. LIES GET SPIT ON” to the former.
One of the images posted last week showed men with the kind of exaggerated facial features typically associated with anti-Semitic tropes playing Monopoly on the backs of black people. The shot came from a 2012 mural that was painted on a wall in London’s Tower Hamlets neighborhood and was removed due to its disturbing imagery.
Further, the article went on to report:
In response to an image of slaves working in Egypt with the caption “Hebrew Israelites slaves in ancient Egypt… Clearly they are a black people,” international human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky replied, “Sorry @icecube, lost all respect for you now. Was willing to give you benefit of the doubt, but no more. You cannot claim to fight racism, by employing #Antisemitism! It also only demeans the memory of #GeorgeFloyd. Shame on you!”
Acclaimed writer/professor Roxane Gay reacted to one of the Star of David posts — which was hit with a “potentially sensitive content” warning by Twitter — writing, “It is impossible to take you seriously with regards to social justice or,.. anything when you post anti-Semitic imagery. What the f— are you doing?”
When BET news host and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill wrote, “Sadly, no. This is his second antisemitic post in a week. Conspiracy theories of Jewish global domination are textbook antisemitism,” Cube responded. “What if I was just pro-Black? This is the truth brother,” he said. “I didn’t lie on anyone. I didn’t say I was anti anybody. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. I’ve been telling my truth.”
Seemingly reacting to some of the blowback, Cube later wrote, “DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE: THE DEVIL WILL COME AT ME (AND YOU) WITH THIS TATIC. 1)Dismiss us 2)Discredit us 3)Demonize us 4)Destroy us!!! The formula they used against Martin Luther King Jr & many others!!! Including women during the so called witch hunt!!!”
The rapper’s tweetstorm continued into Thursday morning (June 11), with posts including an image of a black stick figure spanking a white one, memes of the cartoon character Marvin the Martian, the cover of his 1998 War & Peace Vol. 1 album, a comic depicting Europe and North American stacked with gold carved out of the empty African continent and a series of comics depicting black love.
There were also doctored images of President Trump as The Joker and rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, a post describing Cube’s anger about the messy Georgia primary this week, his reaction to NASCAR banning Confederate flags at races and a confounding response to the Grammys announcing name changes in several categories this week that included two paintings of Michael Jackson.
On Thursday morning, Cube (born O’Shea Jackson) confirmed that he was behind the posts. “This is CUBE. My account has not been hacked,” he wrote. “I speak for no organization. I only speak for the meek people of thee earth. We will not expect crumbles from your table. We have to power of almighty God backing us all over the earth. NO MORE TALKING. Repent.”
Sadly, these images and conspiracy theories are nothing new, but it goes to show that people are feeling more and more open and confident to express their true feelings towards the Jewish people.
I believe that with about half the Jews living in the modern state of Israel and the rest still scattered abroad, that we will continue to see increased anti-semitism going forward and that it will only get worse as the Jewish people will return in waves back to Israel here in the end times. Outside of the modern state of Israel, I believe it has been said that the United States has the second largest concentration of Jews of any other country. I would think that increased anti-semitism in America will cause many to consider moving to Israel. I would not be surprised to see satan try to round them up in Israel and then try to destroy them in an effort to thwart God’s plan for the redemption of mankind. But we know that stan’s plan is doomed and that he is a defeated enemy.
I would encourage people to watch for signs of increasing anti-semitism in the near future and for more and more Jewish people to continue to make aliyah to Israel.
We know that things will get bad for the Jewish people in the coming 7-year Tribulation, but that God will save a remnant of the Jews for himself and that they will eventually come to faith in Jesus Christ at the Second Coming when the see the One that they pierced.
I think that the rising antisemitism is just one more sign that shows we are getting closer and closer to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. All end times signs are seemingly converging in this generation. I am confident that we are the generation that will see the rapture of the church.
As I also ways say, keep looking up, for when you see all these things coming to pass, that our redemption is drawing nigh!
