MSN is reporting that, according to Fox News, Columbia University’s Orthodox Rabbi Elie Buechler has notified Jewish students to leave the campus and go home because anti-Israel agitators have continued an on-campus “encampment” with participants caught on camera espousing full-on support for terrorism and violence toward Jewish students.

In a WhatsApp message sent to hundreds before the start of Passover, Buechler told students to leave “as soon as possible,” and stated that “the events of the last few days, especially last night [4/20/2024], have made it clear that Columbia University’s Public Safety and the [New York City Police Department] cannot guarantee Jewish students’ safety in the face of extreme antisemitism and anarchy.”

U.S. House of Representatives Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) demanded today (4/21/2024) that Columbia University President Dr. Nemat “Minouche” Shafik “immediately resign” because the university’s leadership “has clearly lost control of its campus” and is “putting Jewish students’ safety at risk.”

My brothers and sisters, we must hit our knees and pray!  I’ve never seen the horrific state of affairs that is happening in the United States right now.  It’s as if WWII, the Holocaust, and 9/11 never even happened.  What are our children being taught in our schools?  What are our elected officials (federal and state) thinking?  What are pastors preaching (or not preaching) from the pulpits?  It’s now considered “extreme” to merely express patriotism or display the U.S. flag in our own country!  And, as is the focus of this article, it’s become unsafe to simply be Jewish on the streets of America!  SHAME ON US for allowing things to get to this point.

Lord have mercy!  For decades, the United States has been ignoring the critical importance of (and the blessings resulting from) faith in Christ and holding a biblical worldview – and the fruit is showing.

We are more concerned about freewheeling drug use, assuring that God and prayer are not allowed in schools or the public square, the “right” to kill our unborn babies with impunity (even up to birth), destroying parental rights and responsibilities for our own children as schools or governments take minors away for abortions and sex change procedures without parental permission or knowledge and then remove the children from their parents’ home if the parents object, and even our own elected officials can’t seem to agree on the definition of a “woman.”  And the list could go on…  The times are evil!

The answer isn’t found in the wisdom of the world or in the shiny prizes dangled in front of us by Satan.  The ANSWER is and will always be, Jesus (see John 14:6)!  Lord have mercy on our land and its citizens (see 2 Chronicles 7:14).  Lord, forgive our sins.  Thank You that as born again believers, we become the children of God (see John 1:12 and Romans 8:16), we have the mind of Christ (see 1 Corinthians 2:16), and we have the Holy Spirit living within to guide, direct and strengthen us in the wisdom of God (see 1 Corinthians 3:19).

Never forget that the evil one comes to deceive, steal, kill, destroy and to offer a counterfeit to the blessed things of God – he comes to bring death (see John 10:10 and 1 Peter 5:8).  But praise God!  Jesus comes to bring salvation and eternal life (see John 3:16-17).  The choice is ours

Here are the above-referenced scriptures:

John 14:6 (NKJV)
“Jesus said to [Thomas], ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.’”

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
“…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

John 1:12 (NKJV)
“But as many as received Him [Jesus], to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name…”.

Romans 8:16 (NKJV)
“The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.”

1 Corinthians 2:16 (Amplified Bible)
“For who has known the mind and purposes of the Lord, so as to instruct Him?  But we have the mind of Christ [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes].”

1 Corinthians 3:19 (NLT)
“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God.  As the Scriptures say, ‘He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness.’”

John 10:10 (NKJV)
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

1 Peter 5:8 (NKJV)
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

John 3:16-17 (NKJV)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

Praise Jesus forevermore!
