Sid: My guest by way of telephone is Nita Johnson and all this week we found out a mandate that God has given Nita. If the leaders of this country will repent we can stop war from coming to this shore. The issue of repentance involves, and most Christians don’t know this, it involves the Jewish people the original sin in the church, the rift between the Jews and the Christians. That original sin when that is dealt with in particular the anti-Semitism, the blatant anti-Semitism that is in the church of the United States of America. The anti-Semitism that occurred during World War II when this country could have done something and as opposed to doing something literally stopped 2 ships of Jews that had just gotten out of the camps and sent them back to the camps to die. The fact that Roosevelt knew what was going, maybe the average U.S. citizen didn’t know but our top leaders knew and understood and didn’t say a word for that anti-Semitism. If we repent as a nation it’s going to literally change destiny. Nita you were telling me those that are going to be leading in this repentance will be used mightily by God with a great revival that is coming to America. But the thing that touched me the most of everything you told me before we went on the air was God showed you what is going on in the heart of Jewish people and how the Jewish people will be reached with the gospel. Please tell me about that.
Nita: When you look at the holocaust generation after generation you have to wonder, well surely generations know that generations before were killed in these massive holocausts. Where does that leave the Jewish heart? Where does that leave the typical Jewish person growing up in America, for instance America today? This is what I’ve been shown:
The Jewish people are embittered towards the world, the entire world. There is a bitterness deep in the heart of the Jewish heart toward the world over the holocaust. Because of those who perpetrated it and because of those who could have helped and didn’t. It isn’t like they sit around and think about it all the time, it isn’t like that. It’s just that this bitterness is there and it hasn’t been healed and it needs to be healed.
They’re embittered with the Father. When I was in Malaysia the Lord let me feel this bitterness coming from the Jewish heart. It was… the feeling was like a hatred towards God that He would allow almost a total destruction of a race of people the way that they used that place in the holocaust. The wound is so deep Sid it is so deep in the heart of Jewish people that even those who serve Him in Orthodoxy and various Jewish sects, deep in their heart they feel the pain. They may love the Lord on the surface but deep in their hearts there is this unreconciled wound.
Sid: I meet many Jewish people and they say “How could Jesus have allowed the holocaust?” Then when we talk further they say “How could have God allowed the holocaust?” That is an unresolved question in the heart of many Jewish people.
Nita: It’s an unresolved question and it’s an unresolved wound. Jeremiah speaks of the incurable wound in the heart of the Jewish people. Really that is the incurable wound. The only way it can be cured is if people come together, for instance what we’re doing here in these gatherings and repent for what transpired in the holocaust and what we did and did not do, repent. Then intercede for the Jewish that God would heal that wound in their heart. Jewish people here in America by enlarge love America even though many of them have gone through persecution here. Because they that America is the single solitary nation that has provided a refuge, you know in difficult times. Then the fourth thing is this is this bitterness towards the church. For 2000 years Jewish people have been persecuted by Christians. You know even the holocaust was done in the name of God. So they don’t see Christians as friends they see Christians as enemies, people who will either convert them or kill them. They are afraid to get to know Christians and it isn’t because they want to hate our Messiah, it isn’t like that, there’s a deep deep wound that’s 2000 years old in the heart of Jewish people regarding Christianity. Only repentance for the deeds that have been done against the Jewish people and for apathy when we could have done otherwise and didn’t. Those are the only things. Repentance for these things will be the only thing that God will be able to use to bring healing to this wound in the Jewish hearts. So we’ve got 2 major wounds that need to be healed in the Jewish heart. When these wounds are healed, when we have repented before the Lord God is then able to affect a transition in the spirit that is going to begin to unlock this gridlock of bitterness in the heart of His Jewish people and awaken them to Messiah, awaken them to salvation in Messiah, awaken them to all of the promises that were given to them through Abraham in a mighty awakening in the nation of Israel. That is the national nation of Israel and international nation of Israel the scattered Jewish people abroad in all of the countries. But it’s going to take repentance leaders repenting. When a leader comes he is coming to the Lord not only for himself but he’s coming to the Lord for his church all of the people that he acts as sort of a spiritual umbrella for. He’s coming for all of these people to the Lord. That’s why the Lord said “Gather together the key leaders in the country.” Because in doing this these men and women are speaking for you the Christian on the street, and we’re coming together before the Lord and we are bearing our hearts in repentance and in intercession. These gatherings consist of worship, repentance, intercession, hearing the voice of God regarding the offensives that are upon His heart, and then doing something about it. We have racial problems in America and we’ve done little things, you mentioned it yesterday, we’ve done little things to try to resolve this racial problem and this racial problem, but the truth is until we get to the root of the big problem which is the anti-Semitism we’re not going to have the favor of God upon our nation and upon the church to deal with all of these other racial conflicts which is very much needed by the way. We need His favor and He needs our repentance. We need Him to heal the Jewish people and He needs our repentance so He can heal the Jewish people. So working together with Him across the board in America is going to bring about such a satisfaction in His heart such a healing in His own heart over the holocaust and over the racial discrepancies that go on. It will bring such a healing to Him that His response to that is going to be a joyful outpouring of His glory and of revival.
Sid: It’s as if you’re saying that by repentance of the church for the sins against the Jewish people it’s going to spur revival. I’m trying to put this together Nita right now because there is a book that I’m making available this week which is literally having a profound influence on my life it’s called “Sounding Forth the Trumpet” by Peter Marshall, big book 559 pages. What it shows is we’ve all heard of the great revival in this country under Finney, but what we haven’t heard is that all of these white people that suddenly came to the Lord went into seminaries and were preparing for ministry and the flame of God came upon them to come against the sin that was preventing the blessings of God on this country called slavery. If there hadn’t been a revival then we might still have slavery today. This shows prominent men former presidents of the United States their inner thoughts saying “I know that I’m going against what’s politically correct but I must do this I don’t care what happens to my reputation God is telling me to do this.” The courage of these people it could only come from God but somehow it’s as if you’re saying that the repentance will spur the revival but the revival of Jewish people I believe is going to cause them to come in to the church, and literally as Paul says in Romans 11 “If it was a blessing the Jewish people rejected their Messiah how much greater blessing when they receive their Messiah.” It’s going to bring life to the dead 21st century American church. Let’s face it religion is dead but Jesus is alive. There is such a connection between the black issues of today the slavery issue. What is going on with Jewish people in the church I haven’t put it all together but… are you feeling what I’m feeling Nita?
Nita: I mentioned to you I came to the same realization reading 2 other books one about Finney one about Abraham Lincoln. That God ignited that revival back in that generation to free the slaves. The revival that He’s perpetrating or desiring to perpetrate upon America if you will is for the same purpose but this time the slave is not the African American but the slave is the Jewish person. Slavery…
Sid: Oi vey we’re out of time this is so fascinating!
