Theological question on FB: “Where do you think God was in the Holocaust?”
God allows for mankind to make decisions like those that resulted from a conspiracy between Hitler and Satan-Allah to eradicate the Jews from the face of the Earth during the Holocaust but God, in His omnipotence, always works through and around our free will to accomplish His perfect will in both Time and Eternity. The Holocaust was interpreted by Satan-Allah/Islam as a victory but God turned Satan’s “victory” into defeat by inspiring the children of Jacob via the “Never Again” movement to reestablish the Nation of Israel (1948) thereby fulfilling Ezekiel’s regathering prophecy (Ezekiel 34:13).
For two-thousand years, eschatologists could not fathom the fulfillment of Scriptures concerning Israel seeing that the Nation ceased to exist and Jerusalem had been utterly destroyed in 70AD by Titus and the 10th-Roman Legion; therefore, “replacement theology” arose and religious zealots attempted to replace Israel with the Church…but God’s Plan would not be thwarted…Israel is now a Nation (1948) and Jerusalem was recaptured by the Jews (1967 Six-Day-War) and Jerusalem is now the Capital of Israel (2017).
In the near future, a coalition comprised of Islam/Allah-Iran – Russia – China will come against Jerusalem, Israel and a nuclear war will be initiated and the United States will have fallen-prey to Progressive Socialism and thus too crippled monetarily and militarily to ally with Israel. Israel will appear to have been orphaned but Messiah-Yeshua will intervene on Israel’s behalf, defeat the armies of Allah-Satan, and all of Israel will see and worship their Messiah they rejected for 2000-years followed by the Millennial Reign of Messiah-Yeshua; so yes, God was in the Holocaust, just passively, as He works all things to the good for those who love and trust in Him as Lord (Romans 8:28). God is victorious…Satan simply does not believe it, yet.
