Theological challenge posited on FB: “Show me the Holocaust in prophecy, in the scriptures🤔 I can find 7 captivities, of Israel’s judgement, but, no Holocaust.”
Why would the Holocaust be prophesied? God the Father used the volitional debauchery of Hitler and Islam to fulfill Ezekiel’s regathering prophecy that eschatologists thought would never manifest; in fact, eschatologists had given-up on Israel’s rebirth subsequent to 1800-years of silence subsequent to 70AD and Titus’ destruction of Jerusalem. Eschatologists were so certain that Israel would never exist again that theologians introduced the doctrine of “replacement theology” and replaced Israel with the Church, but God was only beginning to restart His eschatological time-clock.
God the Father used Hitler and Islam and the Holocaust to initiate the “Never Again” movement and through that movement the Nation of Israel was reborn in 1948 and the City of Jerusalem was re-occupied by Israel in 1967 (Six-Day War) and the Capital of Israel was moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in 2017.
Though the Holocaust may not be visible in the Scriptures, the purpose and resultant of same have manifest before our eyes. In the near future, Jerusalem, Israel will be besieged by the Nations of China, Russia, Islam, and a horrific nuclear war will ensue (Zechariah 14:12; The Revelation of Jesus Christ). Messiah-Jesus will initiate His 2nd-Advent at that time, defeat the enemies of Israel and establish His Millennial Kingdom.
Those who have trusted in Messiah Jesus as Lord for the mediation of sin will serve Jesus in this Kingdom and in the New Jerusalem that is to come. Those that reject Jesus as Lord for the mediation of sin will die in their sin (John 8:24) and they will die the second death in Hell subsequent to the Judgment of the Condemned that will manifest at the end of Messiah’s Millennial Reign (Rev. 20:11-15).
