Is there a link between the Jews rebelling against God and the Holocaust?

Question: Is there a link between the Jews rebelling against God and the Holocaust?

Some related scriptures:

Acts 4

27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.  -kjv

Luke 19

41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, 42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.  -kjv

Answer from Dr Michael Rydelnik on moody radio on openline on Dec 10, 2016:

I had a professor many years ago who said that the holocaust happened because the Jews crucified Jesus. He was wrong on two counts. One, the bible teaches that there is universal guilt, Jews and Gentiles who participated in the death of Jesus. You can see that clearly in Acts 4:27-28. And then it says in Luke 19:41, Jesus approached and saw the city of Jerusalem and wept over it and saying if you knew this day what would bring peace but now  it’s hidden from your eyes and then it talks about the destruction of Jerusalem and then it says they will crush you. The destruction of Jerusalem happened in AD 70. They will crush you and the children within you to the ground, there will not be one stone or another in you because you did not recognize the time of your visitation. Because the Jewish leadership led the nation to reject the Messiah, it is saying not all Jews reject him but most Jews do, the judgement for that is the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. Now, in one minute, I will try to explain the covenant that you see near the end of Deuteronomy, Deuteronomy 28 through 30.  It talks about if you disobey the law, the consequence will be all sorts of bad effects in the land and if you continue to disobey the law of Moses, God told the Jewish people through Moses, then I am going to scatter you into exile. The consequence for disobeying the law is to be exiled. The problem with it is when you are exiled, God says to Israel, you are no longer under my protective custody and then the Gentiles will do with you what they want to do. So, I would see the Holocaust as one of many terrible consequences of being out of God’s protective custody in the land of Israel, that’s where the protective custody was. So who’s at fault here? Was it the Jewish people? No they are outside the land, that’s how they got there. But the cause of the Holocaust are the nations who hate Israel and the God of Israel and they are to blame for that.

  1. Hitler and the Holocaust has been one of or the worst destruction of humans that has been recorded in history. I think just maybe Our God had something to do with this. I have watched numerous actual movie footage of the Germans removing the Jews from their homes and killing them one by one. In these movies I have never seen even (1) Jew try to defend himself. The event seemed as though the Jews had NO power or want to save themselves. I think the power was from God as he allowed his will thru the Germans to destroy his own people who had disobeyed him. Scripture says our God is a just God. We too will not see heaven IF we disobey God and allow other people to see our acts. Yes I believe God had his hand in the millions of Jews being destroyed and displaced during World War II in the 1930’s & 1940’s. God has allowed we people after this disaster to see exactly what happened. Are we smart enough to get it?
