Think it's part of the great illusion?
Hey drdos: In short, no. The Jewish people are separate from those described in the likes of 2 Thes. 2: 10-11 in that they reject Christ's finished work on the cross at this time, but they will eventually realize the error. For those Jewish people who love the Lord (and not all of them do, just as not all people who coin themselves Christians truly are), they are simply exercising their old testament value, steeped in works, for salvation's sake. It is, IMO, deluded, at this point in history, to believe that man's heart is anything but continuously deceptive. That, because I am a Christian. Please don't get me wrong, I love the Jewish people, but I understand their plight is still upon them in the absence of Christ's finished work on the cross.
