This End Times Deception Bible study will list the words of God that He spoke against the House of Judah, the Jews.
As I’m reading through words of the Old Testament prophets, the Lord prompted me to summarize His words of woe against the Jews.
Why? Because many Christians have not read the books of the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, etc., so they don’t know what the Lord has spoken against the Jews.
So Christians just think of them as God’s Chosen People.
This study will reveal that their abominations incurred the wrath of God so much that He sent the Babylonian army and Roman army to desolate them.
