And you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share the nourishing sap from the olive root, Romans 11 v17

The Christian's roots in Israel

shared with the Jews

The  "Old Testament" of the Christian Bible is the Jewish Tanakh, and the "New Testament" is built on these Jewish scriptures.   
Why do some Christians dislike and ignore the Old Testament ?

Jesus is a Jew. He was born, lived and died as a Jew. He was born King of the Jews and died King of the Jews.
How can some Christians say,   "I don't like Jews" ?

Jesus taught as a Jewish Rabbi.
Why do many try and understand his teaching using Greek philosophy?

We are familiar with the Christian holidays.  
Why don't we understand the Jewish feasts and holy days that Jesus celebrated ?

God promised the patriarchs of Israel, "He who blesses you, I will bless and he who curses you, I will curse." 
Why do so few Christians support Israel and the Jews in informed prayer ?

Jesus is coming back to Jerusalem
How can Christians side with those seeking to destroy Israel and seize Jerusalem? 

In these pages we look at what went wrong, the good things we are missing, the way things should be, and how Israel and the Jews are key to world events as they unfold, in these end-times .

This website explores the relationship between Christianity and Judaism  (the Jewish faith), including Messianic Judaism.   It explains the Jewish roots of Christianity, and the continuity of revelation and worship through Jewish and into Christian scriptures.   It looks forward, with the Jews, to the  coming  of their Messiah and ours.   It is possible to span the gulf that opened over the centuries by realizing where we stand.   The apostle Paul likened  non Jewish Christians to wild olive branches grafted into the cultivated olive tree of Israel.   Since this is the basis of our acceptance by the God of Israel,  wildolive  explores the implications of this relationship.

The Messianic Seal  -  this version is the original work of wildolive.co.uk but free for use under the GNU Free Documentation LicenseAn understanding of Hebrew and Jewish culture, tradition, faith and worship can add so much to even familiar Bible stories and  celebrations.   

This was nearly all lost due to replacement theology so we look at all the Jewish Feasts and their relevance and importance for the Christian.

We want to see how much can be recovered, and how we Christians can draw nourishment from our Jewish roots.

The unfolding of God's purposes in World History centres around Israel, Jerusalem and the Jews.  The Christian can not afford to ignorantly follow the prevailing world-view of events in the "Middle East" and side with those who oppose God's purposes and the people He chose to bring salvation to the world.    We need to understand and act upon "the signs of the times" revealed in Israel, so we look at the politics and media coverage of Israel and the forces ranged against her.

We seek to draw practical conclusions for ways the Christian can be in God's will concerning these matters, and to point the way to the many resources which are available for those who seek to draw from their roots in God's olive tree.

Healing

Awareness of the importance of Israel is not the only thing that much of the church has lost. Healing is an important part of the Gospel that few Christians believe in, having become more sophisticated and educated in the world's wisdom. See also Unbelief.

Please note - Whilst this section is about what is changing, temporary and political, the ministry of wildolive is primarily about the spiritual, eternal truth of the Bible and the Gospel.

"Chickenshitgate"

An anonymous “senior Obama administration” official told The Atlantic correspondent Jeffrey Goldberg that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a “chickenshit.”

“Chickenshit?” That’s rich, coming from an administration whose fear of Vladimir Putin is the subject of derisory mirth in the Kremlin, and whose cravenness towards Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Damascus has directly resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent Syrians. Blissfully dismissive of their own failings, they round on Netanyahu, a man who served with distinction in his country’s elite Sayeret Matkal army unit, by calling him, of all things, a coward!

And that’s not the only epithet. As Goldberg pointed out, “Over the years, Obama administration officials have described Netanyahu to me as recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery.’” (For those unclear as to what that last term means, it’s a pejorative description for people with Asperger syndrome, a form of autism, and it’s as nasty as calling someone a “retard.”

Nations voting for Recognition of Palestine

No shortcuts to Middle East peace

Western pressure on Israel and praise for Palestine only delays resolution

The West appears to be losing patience for the Arab-Israeli conflict. Some are looking for shortcuts, including many undoubtedly well-intentioned British members of Parliament who recently called for the recognition of Palestine as a state. At the same time, many in the West are escalating their critical rhetoric against Israel, and regrettably, against Israel alone.

Perhaps this focus is understandable. Israel is rightfully seen (and sees itself) as part of the West, as the only democratic “responsible adult” in the area. The Palestinians are seen as children — guiltless and unaccountable — at once victims of and heirs to the Arab world’s tradition of political irresponsibility.

Treating the Palestinians as children, however, is the surest way to perpetuate the conflict, not end it. If there is ever to be a genuine peace between Israelis and Palestinians, both sides must make difficult compromises.

No serious demands are made of the Palestinians, because as “children,” expectations of them are low, and they are never taken to task for their misdeeds. When the Palestinian Authority (PA) signs a pact with extremists who reject Israel’s very right to exist, we are told that the Palestinian leadership is weak and seeking internal legitimacy. When PA leaders demand a “right of return” clearly incompatible with a negotiated peace, the West refuses to confront them for propagating this maximalist fantasy. When the PA officially turns terrorist killers into Palestinian national heroes, we are told not to undermine their narrative. If the West continues to treat Palestinians as children, giving them a pass on these and other issues, what motivation do they have to grow up?

Palestinian leader

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas made an impassioned speech on Friday, demanding that Palestinians stop “Jewish settlers” from entering the Temple Mount and otherwise confront the “fierce onslaught on Al-Aksa Mosque, Jerusalem and the Holy Sepulchre Church.” He added that “We must prevent them from entering the Noble Sanctuary in any way. This is our Al-Aksa and our church. They have no right to enter and desecrate them. We must confront them and defend our holy sites. Jerusalem has a special flavor and taste not only in our hearts, but also in the hearts of all Arabs and Muslims and Christians. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Palestinian state and without it there will be no state.”

Should we bother about Israel and Gaza - and I.S.?

Does the war in Gaza affect YOU? Why should you care?

Anti-Semitism

The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the UK shot up nearly 500% with Israel’s military operation in Gaza. (CST)

Israel's enemies

Iran is still the number one threat to Israel -

- attention has strayed from the most important actor in the region, Iran.

Melanie Philips - explains here - - see also Understanding the Times

Islamic Caliphate - I.S. - ISIS - ISIL

Islamic State has issued an ultimatum to northern Iraq's dwindling Christian population to either convert to Islam, pay a religious levy or face death, according to a statement distributed in the militant-controlled city of Mosul. The ruling will come into effect on Saturday.

Is Israel Next On ISIS’s List?

According to various horror scenarios, ISIS will succeed in establishing itself in Jordan or Syria and turn its aggression towards Israel. Experts we spoke with assess that this scenario is not likely. "It is very hard to assess the number of ISIS members, but according to estimates it numbers at between 10 to 15 thousand members.”

Syria

Egypt

The government appears to be in favour of Israel destroying Hamas, for their part in the Muslim Brotherhood's takeover in Egypt. It has been observed that the cease fire deal that Egypt proposed involved a humiliating defeat for Hamas, that they would reject so that Israel could finish the job of destroying Hamas.

Libya

Full scale civil war looks likely. New evidence reveals that jihadi entities, such as al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Ansar al-Sharia (ASL), are holding training camps in Libya.

Jordan

Now being threatened by ISIS / ISIL. Jordan has lost control over much of its territory. Western intelligence sources said Jordan has become a hub for rebel operations against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Lebanon

Ali Fayyad, a deputy in the Lebanese National Assembly representing the Shi'ite terror militia Hezbollah, told reporters in Beirut that Sunni jihadist groups fighting in neighboring Iraq and Syria are setting up networks inside Lebanon and plan to move the conflict there in the near future.

Other Lebanese analysts have warned that jihadist groups might attempt to infiltrate into Lebanon and fire into Israel from Hezbollah controlled territory in order to provoke the Jewish State into attacking Hezbollah, thus pitting two of the enemies of the Sunni jihadist groups against each other. - ICEJ

Iranian backed Hizbollah are believed to be digging away industriously into Israel, like Hamas did in Gaza. See Melanie Philips article Melanie Philips - explains here

Rockets have been fired into Israel - (Not by Lebanon or Hizbollah; they say). As the Lebanon government does nothing to restrain Hezbollah, Israel has stated that provocative actions will be treated as emanating from Lebanon, and responses will be against Lebanon.

 

What now?

The long running Roadmaps, the Oslo Accords and Two State solutions all appear stalled, so what must be done now?

What will Israel do? - Is the Two State Solution dead ? - Will Israel consider Caroline Glick's The Israeli Solution ?

This book provides an excellent explanation of how the current situation came about - which will be essential to understanding how the policies might backtrack to an earlier status. (pre Oslo?)
