Jesus came to save you from "The Lake of Fire", not the Romans
Jesus is the one sent by the Father to save you and to give you eternal life. And the only methodology of obtaining eternal life is found in the New Testament. The Torah says absolutely nothing about how to obtain it. Nothing. It was not supposed to. A savior was coming. You were told to wait for the Jewish Messiah. He was going to save you. But not from the Romans.
The Romans were efficient administrators of all of the lands that they managed. It was their job, given to them by God, they worked for you. As long as you were under their umbrella of protection you had no fears or worries. No danger from foreign invaders anymore, do you remember how it was before? Every country within a thousand miles attacked and invaded Israel at will. The Babylonians, Egyptians, Persians and the Philistines destroyed the country over and over, year after year. Not so with the Romans protecting you, you had your Holy Temple and food and water and the police and civility and order. As the old expression goes, "the trains ran on time". You may not of liked the Roman taxes but you would have had to pay the same tax or more under a sovereign Jewish administration, and that without the benefit of the absolute military protection provided by a Roman civil administration.
Jesus did not come to cause chaos in the government. You assume incorrectly. He was "the Savior" of mankind. And your lifestyle during your seventy years on this earth was not his main objective. Your 70 years on this earth are just for one reason, to determine where you will spend the next million. Your time on this earth is simply a "touch and go". That is a term used by aircraft carrier pilots, they practice landings over and over by just touching down for one second and then launching back into the air. That is just about how long you will have on this earth, if you look at the big picture. Your time on this earth is over in one snap of Gods fingers and then you will kneel before God and the great white throne and you will be judged.
And the methodology for obtaining eternal life in Heaven is only written of in the new testament that was delivered by the Jewish savior. The Messiah who came to save you. So that your own judgment day will go well for you. And you are required to already have had the Holy Spirit of God in order for that to happen. And that is only obtained through God's words found in the new testament. Period.
If you ask a Jewish person who has rejected the Jewish Messiah and the new testament of God what happens to them after they die the answer is always the same, "I don't know" or "that question is a little fuzzy". And that should be fuzzy, there is absolutely nothing stated or even implied in the Torah about obtaining eternal life in Heaven. Nothing. The Jewish savior was coming to fix that problem. Not to fire the local government officials and to try to a get you a tax cut. Look at the big picture. What did God the Father do after the temple officials rejected his Jewish Messiah?
God the Father sent the Roman legions to burn the Holy Temple to the ground.
Just as Jesus predicted they would do after the Jews officially rejected him, "Truly truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down". (Matthew 24:2)
The most expensive and beautiful building on the face of the Earth with a replacement cost in today's dollars of 84 billion dollars was lost forever.
Then Jerusalem proper was sacked.
And then all the rest of Israel was sacked, it was desecrated, it was looted, and it was lost.
And then all the Jews of Israel were scattered to the wind like so much dust.
And then the whole country of Israel proper ceased to exist.
On that day Israel was gone..
God had it renamed "Palestine" for almost 2000 years.
The country of Israel itself only came back into existence again a few years ago in 1948.
Always remember Jesus was a fellow Jew just like you. He was hardly a turncoat to the Jewish faith. Your false understanding of him and his mission as perhaps being here just for the Gentiles is the result of thousands of years of inaccurate "spin". He was coming just to save you. But not from the Romans.
From the lake of fire.
"And if anyone's name is not found written in the book of life, he is thrown into the lake of fire". (Revelation 20:15)
The reason that the Father sent the Holocaust in the first place is officially explained by God in "the parable of the wedding feast". Also in this parable, God for the first time documents the reasons for the official transition of the title of "the chosen people" from the members of the now dead religion of "Judaism" (which really means - "those who accept only half of God's words in the bible") to the "Christians" (which really means - "those who accept all of God's words, the whole bible").
The parable of the wedding feast goes as follows, 1"Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying, 2"The kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. 3"And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. 4"Again he sent out other slaves saying, 'Tell those who have been invited, "Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast."' 5"But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, 6and the rest seized his slaves and they mistreated them and they killed them. (Jesus and most of the old testament prophets) 7"But then the King became enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their cities on fire. (the Holocaust) 8"Then he said to his slaves, 'The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9'Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite them to the wedding feast.' 10"Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found who would come, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests". Matthew 22:1-10
After the Jewish Messiah sent by God was officially rejected, Jesus then prophesied and foretold of the upcoming tribulation period of the Holocaust that would come about as a result of that rejection in Matthew 24:19-22, 19"But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath. 21For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. 22Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short".
God has no problems with people of the Jewish nationality (blood), in fact many many many of them have long ago made the proper transition into Protestant Christianity. His problem is solely with the people still messing around with this long dead religion of "Judaism". God closed the final chapter on that book some two thousand years ago. It exists only in some very old and very dusty history volumes on his shelf.
Any thinking person would find it simply impossible still to think of themselves as members of any "chosen people" and to at the same time reconcile that with the irrefutable fact of the very clear sign from God of the Holocaust.
Answer me this, can God stop any mans heart if he wills it? Yes. Then why did God not stop the hearts of Hitler, Goring and Goebbels? It was because they were delivering the fulfillment of "the parable of the wedding feast" and they had a job to do for him. Time to wake up and to stop candy coating reality. The Father even had Hitler lose his mind and start a blatantly impossible invasion of Russia just to keep the death squads still in business, just so that he could keep up their rampage and clear out the rest of Poland and the Ukraine also.
And just how did the "enraged King" of the parable of the wedding feast act out and express his justifiable wrath? This was foretold and predicted in the prophetic verse of Revelation 19:15, "He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God". God was saying in that verse that he will stomp all the murdering and complaining "grapes" who killed all of his prophets in one uncontrollable frenzy of death and destruction (the Holocaust). And guess who "the grapes" are? You might consider that it is finally time to stop provoking the Father.
You are shooting yourself in the foot and you are sentencing yourself to Hell. Lord Jesus the Messiah was and still is the only door available to the Father, "I am the door; if anyone enters through me, he will be saved". (John 10:9)
Nobody gets to the Father except through him. He is the only door to Heaven.
Anyone who does not enter by "the door"
Does not get in.
