Will the Jews Accept Christ at the Second Coming?
By Irvin Baxter
Question: Molly from Indiana called to ask Irvin, “Will the Jews accept Jesus as the Messiah at the Second Coming and are they spiritually blind to Him?”
Answer: The Jews will accept Jesus as the Messiah at the Second Coming if they don’t do it before. Some of them are going to do it before. The passage that really gives us hope is in the book of Zechariah chapter 14 and 13. In chapter 14 Israel is going to be fighting the Battle of Armageddon and she’s going to be losing. As a matter of fact, the Bible says she will lose half of Jerusalem. So she’s going to be losing to the world’s armies and just when Israel is on the brink of total defeat Jesus is going to come and place His feet on the Mount of Olives. All the Jews of Israel believe that that is what their Messiah is going to do. When He comes, they are going to run out there to meet their Messiah and they’re going to bow to worship Him and they’re going to notice that He has nail prints in His hands and His feet. Zechariah 13 says, “And one will say unto Him, where did you get these wounds in Your hands? And he will reply, these are they in which I was wounded in the house of my friends.” And they’re going to believe!
