I have posted many times before that God is behind the Middle East wars, and turmoil. He is bringing the Islamic nations together, against Israel, and allowing even the rhetoric about eliminating the Jews into the main stream press around the world. What I think we also forget, is that God was behind the hatred of the Jews around the world, and He is responsible for the anti-Semitism.
In 2 Kings 21 you read about the King Massasseh, and he seduced Israel to do things she was not familiar in doing, but she went along with her king. Here in verse eight of that chapter it states Massasseh's sin.
8 And I will not cause the feet of Israel to wander anymore out of the land that I gave to their fathers, if only they will be careful to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the Law that my servant Moses commanded them.” 9But they did not listen, and Manasseh led them astray to do more evil than the nations had done whom the LORD destroyed before the people of Israel.
But earlier in the chapter it says that Massasseh did the following.
1. He rebuilt the high places of worship, where you worshipped the gods of the culture in the land.
2. He built altars in the House of the Lord, worshipping other gods.
3. He sacrificed his son in the fire
4. He used mediums, and wizards
Many of Israel's leaders lead the people away from God, but King Massasseh was the worst. Jeremiah the prophet wrote what God said about the results of Massasseh leadership.
In Jeremiah 29 we discover that God was not only behind the scattering of His people, He also was behind their reproach, among all the nations.
