What type of food did the prisoners of war eat?

During the many "death marches" that took place in Europe during World War II, especially in its final months, prisoners did not generally receive satisfactory food-provisions of any kind. From their captors, they might receive a small portion of bread, perhaps unsavory soup, perhaps a handful of low-quality vegetables. They would sometimes be given sustenance (eggs, bread, milk, fruit) by sympathetic observers from villages and towns. Sometimes they might be able to forage for themselves from the fields and forests through which they were marched.

What caused the Blitz to take place?

It started August 25, 1940, when a lost German pilot accidentally bombed central London. The British sent a retaliatory bombing strike to Berlin the next night. Hitler was incensed and issued orders to launch a merciless bombing campaign against London. On September 7, the London Blitz began. The fragile diplomatic tent protecting citizens collapsed, and both the Allies and Axis began to attack and terrorize each other's citizens. Londoners were treated to almost nightly bombing raids by Luftwaffe Heinkel aircraft. The Germans were aided in their targeting with early radar guidance systems, named X-Gerate and Knickebein. But compared to the Allied bombings of Germany later in the war, these were small excursions because of the limited carrying capacities of the airplanes. On an average night, 200 German bombers would attack, dropping about 300 tons of bombs. Forty thousand British were killed and many historic buildings and cathedrals destroyed. Faulty intelligence told Luftwaffe planners that the citizens of Britain were feeling the pressure of the attacks and repeated German bombing would soon lead to victory.

Why did the Holocaust happen to the Jews?

See the Discussion page and the links below.BIBLE ANSWER[NB Many of these references are from the Torah!]Basically because they disobeyed God and broke the promises of obedience they had made to their leader Moses:-Deu 27:1-2,8-26 GNB Then Moses, together with the leaders of Israel, said to the people, "Obey all the instructions that I am giving you today. [v. 2] On the day you cross the Jordan River and enter the land that the LORD your God is giving you, you are to set up some large stones, cover them with plaster, ... [v. 8] On the stones covered with plaster write clearly every word of God's laws." [v. 9]Then Moses, together with the levitical priests, said to all the people of Israel, "Give me your attention, people of Israel, and listen to me. Today you have become the people of the LORD your God; [v. 10] so obey him and keep all his laws that I am giving you today." [v. 11] Then Moses said to the people of Israel, [v. 12] "After you have crossed the Jordan, the following tribes are to stand on Mount Gerizim when the blessings are pronounced on the people: ... [v. 13] And the following tribes will stand on Mount Ebal when the curses are pronounced... [v. 14] The Levites will speak these words in a loud voice: [v. 15] " 'God's curse on anyone who makes an idol of stone, wood, or metal and secretly worships it; the LORD hates idolatry.' "And all the people will answer, 'Amen!'(The same response of 'Amen' (or, "So be it") is made 10 more times for 10 more prohibitions, and in Verse 26 the people agree to God's curse on them if they disobey):-[v. 26] " 'God's curse on anyone who does not obey all of God's laws and teachings.' "And all the people will answer, 'Amen!'They were promised great blessings if they obeyed:-Deu 28:1-13 GNB "If you obey the LORD your God and faithfully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, he will make you greater than any other nation on earth. [v. 2] Obey the LORD your God and all these blessings will be yours: [v. 3] "The LORD will bless your towns and your fields. [v. 4] "... with many children, ... abundant crops, ... with many cattle and sheep. [v. 5] ... grain crops ... food you prepare .... [v. 6] ... everything you do. [v. 7]... defeat your enemies ... they will run from you in all directions. [v. 8] ... bless your work ... fill your barns with grain. ... [v. 9] "If you obey the LORD your God and do everything he commands, he will make you his own people, as he has promised. [v. 10]Then all the peoples on earth will see that the LORD has chosen you to be his own people, and they will be afraid of you. [v. 11] The LORD will give you many children, many cattle, and abundant crops ... [v. 12]He will send rain in season ... and bless all your work, ... you will lend to many nations, but you will not have to borrow from any. [v. 13] ... will make you the leader among the nations and not a follower; you will always prosper and never fail if you obey faithfully all his commands that I am giving you today.They were told never to disobey:-[Deu 28:14] Butyou must never disobey them in any way, or worship and serve other gods.However, if they did disobey they were promised not blessings but their opposite: cursings:-Deu 28:15-57 [v. 15] "But if you disobey the LORD your God and do not faithfully keep all his commands and laws that I am giving you today, all these evil things will happen to you: [v. 16] "The LORD will curse your towns ... fields. [v. 17] "...grain crops ... food ...from them. [v.18]... few children, poor crops, ... few cattle and sheep.[v. 19] ... everything you do. [v. 20]"If you do evil and reject the LORD, he will bring on you disaster, confusion, and trouble in everything you do, until you are quickly and completely destroyed. [v. 21]He will send disease after disease on you ... [v. 22]...infectious diseases, ... swelling and fever... drought and scorching winds ... destroy your crops. ... disasters ...[v. 23] No rain ... ground will become as hard as iron. [v. 24... duststorms and sandstorms .... [v. 25] ... your enemies victor[ious] over you. ... you will run from them ... all the people on earth will be terrified when they see what happens to you. [v. 26] When you die, birds and wild animals will come and eat your bodies... [v. 27] The LORD will send boils on you, ... sores...scabs, ... ... itch, but there will be no cure. [v. 28] ... lose your mind; ... blindness and confusion. [v. 29] ... you will not be able to find your way. You will not prosper in anything ... constantly oppressed and robbed, and there will be no one to help you. [v. 30] "You will be engaged to a young woman---but someone else will marry her. You will build a house---but never live in it. You will plant a vineyard---but never eat its grapes. [v. 31] Your cattle will be butchered before your very eyes, but you will not eat any of the meat. Your donkeys will be dragged away while you look on, and they will not be given back to you. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and there will be no one to help you. [v. 32] Your sons and daughters will be given as slaves to foreigners while you look on. Every day you will strain your eyes, looking in vain for your children to return. [v. 33] A foreign nation will take all the crops that you have worked so hard to grow, while you receive nothing but constant oppression and harsh treatment.[v. 34] Your sufferings will make you lose your mind.[v. 35] ... incurable, painful sores; boils will cover you ... [v. 36] "... will take you and your king away to a foreign land... there you will serve[false]lgods.... [v. 37...the people will be shocked at what has happened to you; they will make fun of you and ridicule you. [v. 38] ...the locusts will eat your crops. [v. 39] ... worms will eat the vines.[v. 40] will not have any olive oil, because the olives will drop off. [v. 41] ...[your sons and daughters ] will be taken away as prisoners of war. [v. 42] All your trees and crops will be devoured by insects. [v. 43] "Foreigners who live in your land will gain more and more power, while you gradually lose yours.[v. 44] They will have money to lend you, but you will have none to lend them. In the end they will be your rulers.[v. 45] "All these disasters will come on you... because you did not obey the LORD your God and keep all the laws that he gave you. [v. 46] They will be the evidence of God's judgment on you and your descendants forever. [v. 47]The LORD blessed you in every way, but you would not serve him with glad and joyful hearts. [v. 48] So then, you will serve the enemies that the LORD is going to send against you. You will be hungry, thirsty, and naked---in need of everything. The LORD will oppress you harshly until you are destroyed. [v. 49] The LORD will bring against you a nation from the ends of the earth, a nation whose language you do not know. They will swoop down on you like an eagle. [v. 50] They will be ruthless and show no mercy to anyone, young or old. [v. 51] They will eat your livestock and your crops, and you will starve to death. They will not leave you any grain, wine, olive oil, cattle, or sheep; and you will die. [v. 52]They will attack every town in the land that the LORD your God is giving you, and the high, fortified walls in which you trust will fall. [v. 53] "When your enemies are besieging your towns, you will become so desperate for food that you will even eat the children that the LORD your God has given you.[v. 54] Even the most refined man of noble birth will ... [v. 55] (SEE 28:54) [v. 56] Even the most refined woman of noble birth, so rich that she has never had to walk anywhere, will behave in the same way... [v. 57] (SEE 28:56)Just to make certain they got the message, the consequences of disobedience were repeated to them again:-[Deu 28:58-68] v.58] "If you do not obey faithfully all of God's teachings that are written in this book and if you do not honor the wonderful and awesome name of the LORD your God, [v. 59] he will send on you and on your descendants incurable diseases and horrible epidemics that can never be stopped. [v. 60] He will bring on you once again all the dreadful diseases you experienced in Egypt, and you will never recover. [v. 61] He will also send all kinds of diseases and epidemics that are not mentioned in this book of God's laws and teachings, and you will be destroyed. [v. 62] Although you become as numerous as the stars in the sky, only a few of you will survive, because you did not obey the LORD your God. [v. 63] Just as the LORD took delight in making you prosper and in making you increase in number, so he will take delight in destroying you and in bringing ruin on you. You will be uprooted from the land that you are about to occupy. [v. 64] "The LORD will scatter you among all the nations, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you will serve gods made of wood and stone, gods that neither you nor your ancestors have ever worshiped before. [v. 65] You will findno peace anywhere, no place to call your own; the LORD will overwhelm you with anxiety, hopelessness, and despair. [v. 66] Your life will always be in danger. Day and night you will be filled with terror, and you will live in constant fear of death. [v. 67]Your hearts will pound with fear at everything you see. Every morning you will wish for evening; every evening you will wish for morning. [v. 68] The LORD will send you back to Egypt in ships, even though he said that you would never have to go there again. There you will try to sell yourselves to your enemies as slaves, but no one will want to buy you."This covenant was in addition to the one they had made previously at Mt Sinai at the giving of the 10 Commandments. Everyone was there. Once again they were told to obey it to be successful:-Deu 29:1-3, 9-29 GNB These are the terms of the covenant that the LORD commanded Moses to make with the people of Israel in the land of Moab; all this was in addition to the covenant which the LORD had made with them at Mount Sinai. [ie the giving of the 10 Commandments] [v. 2] Moses called together all the people of Israel and said to them, "You saw for yourselves what the LORD did to ...[v. 3] You saw the terrible plagues, the miracles, and the great wonders that the LORD performed.... [v. 9] Obey faithfully all the terms of this covenant, so that you will be successful in everything you do.They were told the covenant obligations and curses for breaking it also applied even to their future descendants as yet unbornDeut 29:10-21 [v. 10] "Today you are standing in the presence of the LORD your God, all of you---your leaders and officials, your men, [v. 11]women, and children, and the foreigners who live among you and cut wood and carry water for you. [v. 12] You are here today to enter into this covenant that the LORD your God is making with you and to accept its obligations, [v. 13] so that the LORD may now confirm you as his people and be your God, as he promised you and your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. [v.14]You are not the only ones with whom the LORD is making this covenant with its obligations. [v. 15] He is making it with all of us who stand here [my underlining] in his presence today and also with our descendants who are not yet born [my underlining]. [v. 16] "You remember what life was like in Egypt and what it was like to travel through the territory of other nations.[v. 17] You saw their disgusting idols ... [v. 18] Make sure that no man, woman, family, or tribe standing here today turns from the LORD our God to worship the gods of other nations. ... [v. 19] Make sure that there is no one here today who hears these solemn demands and yet convinces himself that all will be well with him, even if he stubbornly goes his own way. That would destroy all of you, good and evil alike. [v. 20] The LORD will not forgive such a man. Instead, the LORD's burning anger will flame up against him, and all the disasters written in this book will fall on him until the LORD has destroyed him completely.[v. 21] The LORD will make an example of him before all the tribes of Israel and will bring disaster on him in accordance with all the curses listed in the covenant that is written in this book of the LORD's teachings.Moses prophesied - even then - that Israel would suffer these curses because they would break this covenant made with God, despite knowing it applied both to them and their descendants :-Deut 29:22-29 [v. 22] "In future generations your descendants and foreigners from distant lands will see the disasters and sufferings that the LORD has brought on your land. [v. 23] The fields will be a barren waste, covered with sulfur and salt; nothing will be planted, and not even weeds will grow there. Your land will be like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, ..., which the LORD destroyed when he was furiously angry.[v. 24] Then the whole world will ask, 'Why did the LORD do this to their land? What was the reason for his fierce anger?' [v. 25] Andthe answer will be, 'It is because the LORD's people broke the covenant they had made with him, the God of their ancestors, when he brought them out of Egypt. [v. 26] They served other gods that they had never worshiped before, gods that the LORD had forbidden them to worship. [v. 27] And sothe LORD became angry with his people and brought on their land all the disasters written in this book. [v. 28] The LORD became furiously angry, and in his great anger he uprooted them from their land and threw them into a foreign land, and there they are today.' [v. 29] "There are some things that the LORD our God has kept secret; but he has revealed his Law, and we and our descendants are to obey it forever.Moses told the people they had to make a choice between whether they received the blessings or the curses, life or death, so to be obedient and choose life:-Deu 30:1-3, 10-11, 14-20 GNB "I have now given you a choice between a blessing and a curse.When all these things have happened to you, and you are living among the nations where the LORD your God has scattered you, you will remember the choice I gave you. [v. 2]If you and your descendants will turn back to the LORD and with all your heart obey his commands that I am giving you today, [v. 3] then the LORD your God will have mercy on you... [v. 10] but you will have to obey him and keep all his laws that are written in this book of his teachings. You will have to turn to him with all your heart. [v. 11] "The command that I am giving you today is not too difficult or beyond your reach. [v. 14]No, it is here with you. You know it and can quote it, so now obey it. [v. 15] "Today I am giving you a choice between good and evil, between life and death. [v. 16] If you obey the commands of the LORD your God, which I give you today, if you love him, obey him, and keep all his laws, then you will prosper and become a nation of many people. The LORD your God will bless you in the land that you are about to occupy.[v. 17] But if you disobey and refuse to listen, and are led away to worship other gods, [v. 18] you will be destroyed---I warn you here and now. You will not live long in that land across the Jordan that you are about to occupy. [v. 19] I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God's blessing and God's curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life. [v. 20]Love the LORD your God, obey him and be faithful to him, and then you and your descendants will live long in the land that he promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."Deu 31:1-2, 7, 9-13, 30 GNB Moses continued speaking to the people of Israel, [v. 2] and said, "I am now a hundred and twenty years old and am no longer able to be your leader. And besides this, the LORD has told me that I will not cross the Jordan [v. 7] Then Moses called Joshua and said to him in the presence of all the people of Israel, "Be determined and confident; you are the one who will lead these people to occupy the land that the LORD promised to their ancestors [v. 9] So Moses wrote down God's Law and gave it to the levitical priests, who were in charge of the LORD's Covenant Box, and to the leaders of Israel. [v. 10]He commanded them, "At the end of every seven years, when the year that debts are canceled comes around, read this aloud at the Festival of Shelters. [v. 11] Read it to the people of Israel when they come to worship the LORD your God at the one place of worship. [v. 12] Call together all the men, women, and children, and the foreigners who live in your towns, so that everyone may hear it and learn to honor the LORD your God and to obey his teachings faithfully. [v. 13] In this way your descendants who have never heard the Law of the LORD your God will hear it. And so they will learn to obey him as long as they live in the land that you are about to occupy across the Jordan." [v. 14] Then the LORD said to Moses, "You do not have much longer to live. Call Joshua and bring him to the Tent, so that I may give him his instructions." Moses and Joshua went to the Tent, [v. 15] and the LORD appeared to them there in a pillar of cloud that stood by the door of the Tent. [v. 16] The LORD said to Moses, "You will soon die, and after your death the people will become unfaithful to me and break the covenant that I made with them. They will abandon me and worship the pagan gods of the land they are about to enter.[v. 17] When that happens, I will become angry with them; I will abandon them, and they will be destroyed. Many terrible disasters will come upon them, and then they will realize that these things are happening to them because I, their God, am no longer with them. [v. 18] And I will refuse to help them then, because they have done evil and worshiped other gods. [v. 19] "Now, write down this song. Teach it to the people of Israel, so that it will stand as evidence against them. [v. 20] I will take them into this rich and fertile land, as I promised their ancestors. There they will have all the food they want, and they will live comfortably. But they will turn away and worship other gods. They will reject me and break my covenant, [v. 21] and many terrible disasters will come on them. But this song will still be sung, and it will stand as evidence against them. Even now, before I take them into the land that I promised to give them, I know what they are thinking." [v. 22] That same day Moses wrote down the song and taught it to the people of Israel. [v. 23]Then the LORD spoke to Joshua son of Nun and told him, "Be confident and determined. You will lead the people of Israel into the land that I promised them, and I will be with you." [v. 24] Moses wrote God's Law in a book, taking care not to leave out anything. [v. 25] When he finished, he said to the levitical priests, who were in charge of the LORD's Covenant Box, [v. 26] "Take this book of God's Law and place it beside the Covenant Box of the LORD your God, so that it will remain there as a witness against his people. [v. 27]I know how stubborn and rebellious they are. They have rebelled against the LORD during my lifetime, and they will rebel even more after I am dead. [v. 28] Assemble all your tribal leaders and officials before me, so that I can tell them these things; I will call heaven and earth to be my witnesses against them. [v. 29] I know that after my death the people will become wicked and reject what I have taught them. And in time to come they will meet with disaster, because they will have made the LORD angry by doing what he has forbidden." [v. 30]Then Moses recited the entire song while all the people of Israel listened.Deu 34:1-12 GNB Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Mount Pisgah east of Jericho, and there the LORD showed him the whole land: the territory of Gilead as far north as the town of Dan; [v. 2] the entire territory of Naphtali; the territories of Ephraim and Manasseh; the territory of Judah as far west as the Mediterranean Sea; [v. 3] the southern part of Judah; and the plain that reaches from Zoar to Jericho, the city of palm trees. [v. 4]Then the LORD said to Moses, "This is the land that I promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob I would give to their descendants. I have let you see it, but I will not let you go there." [v. 5]So Moses, the LORD's servant, died there in the land of Moab, as the LORD had said he would. [v. 6] The LORD buried him in a valley in Moab, opposite the town of Bethpeor, but to this day no one knows the exact place of his burial. [v. 7]Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died; he was as strong as ever, and his eyesight was still good. [v. 8]The people of Israel mourned for him for thirty days in the plains of Moab. [v. 9] Joshua son of Nunwas filled with wisdom, because Moses had appointed him to be his successor. The people of Israel obeyed Joshua and kept the commands that the LORD had given them through Moses. [v. 10] There has never been a prophet in Israel like Moses; the LORD spoke with him face-to-face. [v. 11] No other prophet has ever done miracles and wonders like those that the LORD sent Moses to perform against the king of Egypt, his officials, and the entire country. [v. 12]No other prophet has been able to do the great and terrifying things that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.When Joshua became leader after Moses died the people promised to obey him just as they had Moses:-Jos 1:1-3, 5-8, 16-18 GNB After the death of the LORD's servant Moses, the LORD spoke to Moses' helper, Joshua son of Nun. [v. 2] He said, "My servant Moses is dead. Get ready now, you and all the people of Israel, and cross the Jordan River into the land that I am giving them.[v. 3] As I told Moses...[v. 5] Joshua, ... I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will always be with you; I will never abandon you. [v. 6...for you will be the leader of these people as they occupy this land which I promised their ancestors. [v. 7] Just be determined, be confident; and make sure that you obey the whole Law that my servant Moses gave you. Do not neglect any part of itand you will succeed wherever you go. [v. 8] Be sure that the book of the Law is always readin your worship. Study it day and night, andmake sure that you obey everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful [v. 16]They [the people of Israel] answered Joshua, "We will do everything you have told us and will go anywhere you send us. [v. 17] We will obey you, just as we always obeyed Moses, and may the LORD your God be with you as he was with Moses! [v. 18]Whoever questions your authority or disobeys any of your orders will be put to death. Be determined and confident!"Jos 8:1-35 GNB The LORD said to Joshua, "Take all the soldiers with you and go on up to Ai. Don't be afraid or discouraged. I will give you victory over the king of Ai; his people, city, and land will be yours. [v. 2] You are to do to Ai and its king what you did to Jericho and its king, but this time you may keep its goods and livestock for yourselves. Prepare to attack the city by surprise from the rear." [v. 3] So Joshua got ready to go to Ai with all his soldiers. He picked out thirty thousand of his best troops and sent them out at night [v. 4] with these orders: "Hide on the other side of the city, but not too far away from it; be ready to attack. [v. 5] My men and I will approach the city. When the men of Ai come out against us, we will turn and run, just as we did the first time. [v. 6] They will pursue us until we have led them away from the city. They will think that we are running from them, as we did before. [v. 7] Then you will come out of hiding and capture the city. The LORD your God will give it to you. [v. 8] After you have taken the city, set it on fire, just as the LORD has commanded. These are your orders." [v. 9] So Joshua sent them out, and they went to their hiding place and waited there, west of Ai, between Ai and Bethel. Joshua spent the night in camp. [v. 10] Early in the morning Joshua got up and called the soldiers together. Then he and the leaders of Israel led them to Ai. [v. 11] The soldiers with him went toward the main entrance to the city and set up camp on the north side, with a valley between themselves and Ai. [v. 12] He took about five thousand men and put them in hiding west of the city, between Ai and Bethel. [v. 13] The soldiers were arranged for battle with the main camp north of the city and the rest of the men to the west. Joshua spent the night in the valley. [v. 14] When the king of Ai saw Joshua's men, he acted quickly. He and all his men went out toward the Jordan Valley to fight the Israelites at the same place as before, not knowing that he was about to be attacked from the rear. [v. 15] Joshua and his men pretended that they were retreating, and ran away toward the barren country. [v. 16] All the men in the city had been called together to go after them, and as they pursued Joshua, they kept getting farther away from the city. [v. 17] Every man in Ai went after the Israelites, and the city was left wide open, with no one to defend it. [v. 18] Then the LORD said to Joshua, "Point your spear at Ai; I am giving it to you." Joshua did as he was told,[v. 19] and as soon as he lifted his hand, the men who had been hiding got up quickly, ran into the city and captured it. They immediately set the city on fire. [v. 20] When the men of Ai looked back, they saw the smoke rising to the sky. There was no way for them to escape, because the Israelites who had run toward the barren country now turned around to attack them.[v. 21] When Joshua and his men saw that the others had taken the city and that it was on fire, they turned around and began killing the men of Ai. [v. 22] The Israelites in the city now came down to join the battle. So the men of Ai found themselves completely surrounded by Israelites, and they were all killed. No one got away, and no one lived through it [v. 23] except the king of Ai. He was captured and taken to Joshua. [v. 24] The Israelites killed every one of the enemy in the barren country where they had chased them. Then they went back to Ai and killed everyone there. [v. 25]Joshua kept his spear pointed at Ai and did not put it down until every person there had been killed. The whole population of Ai was killed that day---twelve thousand men and women. [v. 26] (SEE 8:25) [v. 27] The Israelites kept for themselves the livestock and goods captured in the city, as the LORD had told Joshua. [v. 28] Joshua burned Ai and left it in ruins. It is still like that today. [v. 29]He hanged the king of Ai from a tree and left his body there until evening. At sundown Joshua gave orders for the body to be removed, and it was thrown down at the entrance to the city gate. They covered it with a huge pile of stones, which is still there today. [v. 30] Then Joshua built on Mount Ebal an altar to the LORD, the God of Israel. [v. 31] He made it according to the instructions that Moses, the LORD's servant, had given the Israelites, as it says in the Law of Moses: "an altar made of stones which have not been cut with iron tools." On it they offered burnt sacrifices to the LORD, and they also presented their fellowship offerings. [v. 32] There, with the Israelites looking on, Joshua made on the stones a copy of the Law which Moses had written. [v. 33] The Israelites, with their leaders, officers, and judges, as well as the foreigners among them, stood on two sides of the LORD's Covenant Box, facing the levitical priests who carried it. Half of the people stood with their backs to Mount Gerizim and the other half with their backs to Mount Ebal. The LORD's servant Moses had commanded them to do this when the time came for them to receive the blessing. [v. 34] Joshua then read aloud the whole Law, including the blessings and the curses, just as they are written in the book of the Law. [v. 35] Every one of the commandments of Moses was read by Joshua to the whole gathering, which included women and children, as well as the foreigners living among them.Dan 9:1-18 GNB Darius the Mede, who was the son of Xerxes, ruled over the kingdom of Babylonia. [v. 2]In the first year of his reign I was studying the sacred books and thinking about the seventy years that Jerusalem would be in ruins, according to what the LORD had told the prophet Jeremiah. [v. 3] And I prayed earnestly to the Lord God, pleading with him, fasting, wearing sackcloth, and sitting in ashes. [v. 4] I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed the sins of my people. I said, "Lord God, you are great, and we honor you. You are faithful to your covenant and show constant love to those who love you and do what you command.[v. 5] "We have sinned, we have been evil, we have done wrong. We have rejected what you commanded us to do and have turned away from what you showed us was right. [v. 6] We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our rulers, our ancestors, and our whole nation. [v. 7] You, Lord, always do what is right, but we have always brought disgrace on ourselves. This is true of all of us who live in Judea and in Jerusalem and of all the Israelites whom you scattered in countries near and far because they were unfaithful to you. [v. 8] Our kings, our rulers, and our ancestors have acted shamefully and sinned against you, Lord. [v. 9] You are merciful and forgiving, although we have rebelled against you. [v. 10] We did not listen to you, O LORD our God, when you told us to live according to the laws which you gave us through your servants the prophets. [v. 11] All Israel broke your laws and refused to listen to what you said. We sinned against you, and so you brought on us the curses that are written in the Law of Moses, your servant. [v. 12] You did what you said you would do to us and our rulers. You punished Jerusalem more severely than any other city on earth, [v. 13] giving us all the punishment described in the Law of Moses. But even now, O LORD our God, we have not tried to please you by turning from our sins or by following your truth. [v. 14] You, O LORD our God, were prepared to punish us, and you did, because you always do what is right, and we did not listen to you. [v. 15] "O Lord our God, you showed your power by bringing your people out of Egypt, and your power is still remembered. We have sinned; we have done wrong. [v. 16] You have defended us in the past, so do not be angry with Jerusalem any longer. It is your city, your sacred hill. All the people in the neighboring countries look down on Jerusalem and on your people because of our sins and the evil our ancestors did. [v. 17] O God, hear my prayer and pleading. Restore your Temple, which has been destroyed; restore it so that everyone will know that you are God. [v. 18]Listen to us, O God; look at us and see the trouble we are in and the suffering of the city that bears your name. We are praying to you because you are merciful, not because we have done right.Mal 2:1-12 GNB The LORD Almighty says to the priests, "This command is for you: [v. 2] You must honor me by what you do. If you will not listen to what I say, then I will bring a curse on you. I will put a curse on the things you receive for your support. In fact, I have already put a curse on them, because you do not take my command seriously. [v. 3]I will punish your children and rub your faces in the dung of the animals you sacrifice---and you will be taken out to the dung heap. [v. 4] Then you will know that I have given you this command, so that my covenant with the priests, the descendants of Levi, will not be broken. [v. 5] "In my covenant I promised them life and well-being, and this is what I gave them, so that they might respect me. In those days they did respect and fear me. [v. 6] They taught what was right, not what was wrong. They lived in harmony with me; they not only did what was right themselves, but they also helped many others to stop doing evil. [v. 7] It is the duty of priests to teach the true knowledge of God. People should go to them to learn my will, because they are the messengers of the LORD Almighty. [v. 8] "But now you priests have turned away from the right path. Your teaching has led many to do wrong. You have broken the covenant I made with you. [v. 9] So I, in turn, will make the people of Israel despise you because you do not obey my will, and when you teach my people, you do not treat everyone alike." [v. 10] Don't we all have the same father? Didn't the same God create us all? Then why do we break our promises to one another, and why do we despise the covenant that God made with our ancestors? [v. 11] The people of Judah have broken their promise to God and done a horrible thing in Jerusalem and all over the country. They have defiled the Temple which the LORD loves. Men have married women who worship foreign gods. [v. 12] May the LORD remove from the community of Israel those who did this, and never again let them participate in the offerings our nation brings to the LORD Almighty.Mal 4:4-6 GNB "Remember the teachings of my servant Moses, the laws and commands which I gave him at Mount Sinai for all the people of Israel to obey. [v. 5] "But before the great and terrible day of the LORD comes, I will send you the prophet Elijah. [v. 6] He will bring fathers and children together again; otherwise I would have to come and destroy your country."Joh 7:47-49 GNB "Did he fool you, too?" the Pharisees asked them. [v. 48] "Have you ever known one of the authorities or one Pharisee to believe in him? [v. 49]This crowd does not know the Law of Moses, so they are under God's curse!"Gal 3:6-14 WEB Even as Abraham "believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness." [v. 7] Know therefore that those who are of faith, the same are children of Abraham. [v. 8] The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the Good News beforehand to Abraham, saying, "In you all the nations will be blessed." [v. 9] So then, those who are of faith are blessed with the faithful Abraham. [v. 10] For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them." [v. 11] Now that no man is justified by the law before God is evident, for, "The righteous will live by faith." [v. 12] The law is not of faith, but, "The man who does them will live by them." [v. 13] Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," [v. 14] that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.Rev 22:1-21 MKJV And he showed me a pure river of Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. [v. 2] In the midst of its street, and of the river, from here and from there,wasthe Tree of Life, which bore twelve fruits, each yielding its fruit according to one month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. [v. 3] And every curse will no longer be; but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will serve Him. [v. 4] And they will see His face, and His name will be in their foreheads. [v. 5] And there will be no night there. And they need no lamp, or light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light. And they will reign forever and ever. [v. 6] And he said to me, These sayingsarefaithful and true. And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show to His servants the things which must shortly be done. [v. 7] Behold, I come quickly. Blessed ishe who keeps the Words of the prophecy of this Book. [v. 8] And I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel showing me these things. [v. 9]Then he said to me, Behold! See, do not do it! For I am your fellow-servant, and of your brothers the prophets, and of those who keep the Words of this Book. Do worship to God.[v. 10] And he said to me, Do not seal the Words of the prophecy of this Book; for the time is at hand. [v. 11]He acting unjustly, let him still act unjustly. And the filthy, let him be filthy still. And the righteous, let him be righteous still. And the holy, let him be holy still. [v. 12]And behold, I am coming quickly, and My rewardiswith Me, to give to each according as his work is.[v. 13] I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, the First and the Last. [v. 14]Blessed arethey who do His commandments, that their authority will be over the Tree of Life, and they may enter in by the gates into the city. [v. 15] But outside arethe dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and makes a lie. [v. 16] I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify these things to you over the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright and Morning Star.[v. 17] And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let the onehearing say, Come! And let theonewho is thirsty come. And he willing, let him take of the Water of Life freely. [v. 18] For I testify together toeveryone who hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add on him the plagues that have been written in this Book. [v. 19] And if anyone takes away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and fromthe things which have been written in this Book. [v. 20] He who testifies these things says, Yes, I am coming quickly, Amen. Yes, come, Lord Jesus. [v. 21] The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ bewith all of you. Amen.Another reason why the Jewish Holocaust happened is because the Gospel was first preached to the Jews but they rejected it:-Mat 10:5-6,14-15 KJV These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:[v. 6] But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.... [v. 14] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. [v. 15] Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.The Gospel was preached instead to the Gentiles who welcomed it:-Act 13:13-16, 22-23, 26, 28, 30-33, 38-52 WEB [v 16] Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said, "Men of Israel, and you who fear God, listen. ... [v. 22 [God] raised up David to be their king, to whom he also testified, 'I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after my heart, who will do all my will.' [v. 23] From this man's seed, God has brought salvation to Israel according to his promise, [v. 26] Brothers, children of the stock of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, the word of this salvation is sent out to you. ... [v. 28] Though they found no cause for death, they still asked Pilate to have him [ie Jesus Christ] killed. ... [v. 30] But God raised him from the dead, [v. 31] and [we]... are his witnesses to the people. [v. 32] We bring you good news of the promise made to the fathers, [v. 33] that God has fulfilled the same to us, their children, in that he raised up Jesus... [v. 38] Be it known to you therefore, brothers, that through [Jesus Christ] is proclaimed to you remission of sins, [v. 39] and by him everyone who believes is justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses. [v. 40] Bewaretherefore,lest that come on youwhich is spoken in the prophets:[v. 41] 'Behold, you scoffers, and wonder, and perish; for I work a work in your days, awork which you will in no way believe, if one declares it to you.' "[This was prophesied in the Old Testament: See Isa 28:14"Therefore hear the word of Yahweh, you scoffers, that rule this people in Jerusalem":& from Hab 1:5"Look among the nations, watch, and wondermarvelously; for I am working a work in your days, which you will not believe though it is told you. "[v. 42] So when the Jewswentoutof the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. [v. 43] Now when the synagogue broke up, many of the Jews and of the devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas; who, speaking to them, urged them to continue in the grace of God. [v. 44] The next Sabbath almost the whole city was gathered together to hear the word of God. [v. 45] But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with jealousy, and contradicted the things which were spoken by Paul, and blasphemed.[v. 46]Paul and Barnabas spoke out boldly, and said, "It was necessary that God's word should be spoken to you first. Since indeed you thrust it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.[v. 47] For so has the Lord commanded us, saying, 'I have set you as a light for the Gentiles, that you should bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth.' "[v. 48] As the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of God.As many as were appointed to eternal life believed. [v. 49] The Lord's word was spread abroad throughout all the region. [v. 50]But the Jewsstirred upthe devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, and stirred up a persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and threw them out of their borders. [v. 51] But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came to Iconium. [v. 52] The disciples were filled with joy with the Holy Spirit.Compare Matthew 5:14 with Acts 13:51 . Then read Matt. 5:15 for the consequences: it's the same today. Most Jews are secular or orthodox to some degree, but very, very few have become Christian. Most have rejected their Messiah.In The Holocaust one jew out of three died. However, the Bible prophecies of another future and even greater holocaust in the Day of Jacob's Trouble, or 'in that day' [see Zechariah 12:1-14] in which two jews out of three die [see Zec 13:1-9, especially the last two verses]:-Zec 12:1-14 BBE The word of the Lord about Israel. The Lord ... has said: [v. 2] See, I will make Jerusalem a cup of shaking fear to all the peoples round about, when Jerusalem is shut in. [v. 3] And it will come about in that day...[v. 4] In that day, ... [v. 5] ... [v. 6] In that day ... [v. 7] ... [v. 8] In that day ... [v. 9] And it will come about on that day ... [v. 10] ... and their grief for him will be bitter, like the grief of one sorrowing for his oldest son. [v. 11] In that day.... [v. 12] And the land will give itself to weeping, every family separately; ... [v. 13] ...; [v. 14] And all the ... families by themselves, and their wives by themselves.Zec 13:1-9 BBE In that day ... [v. 2] And it will come about on that day, ... [v. 3] ...[v. 4] And it will come about in that day ... [v. 5] ... [v. 6] ... [v. 7] ... [v. 8] And it will come about that in all the land, says the Lord,two parts of it will be cut off and come to an end; but the third will be still living there. [v. 9] And I will make the third part go through the fire, cleaning them as silver is made clean, and testing them as gold is tested: and they will make their prayer to me and I will give them an answer: I will say, It is my people; and they will say, The Lord is my God.
