According to Daniel Botkin

Enmity between the serpent and the woman

After the ancestors disobeyed the Creator and followed the serpent the LORD God sent Adam forth from the garden of Eden (Gen 3:23) and the enmity between the serpent and the woman and between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman (Gen 3:15) determines the history of mankind.

14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: Пс 71, 9.
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed (τοῦ σπέρματός σου) and her seed (τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτῆς); it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Gen.14, 18. Пс 111, 1, 2, 4. Зах 6, 13. Gen.22, 9. Пс 22. Пс 70. Зах 12, 10. Ин 3, 14.

Returning of Jesus

Why Satan does not want Jewish people to believe in Jesus?

Let me explain something: Why Satan does not want Jewish people to believe in Jesus?
… Think about it: Jews make a very small persantage of the whole world population. So, why would Satan be so determined to keep that particular group of people from believing in Jesus?
There are three New Testament passages that show us the importance of Jews believing in Jesus, receiving Him.
One of them is in Mathew 23. Remember, this is the chapter when Yesua rebuked the pharisees and scribes: “you pharisees, scribes, hypocrites; you do this, you do that.” Exposing all the hypocrisy of the leadership there, of the scribes, pharisees, hypocrites. And then He ends the chapter with these words (Matthew 23:37) where He is mourning over Jerusalem:

37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!”
38 “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.”

Means: the Temple is gonna be destroyed. Now, listen to what He says. He says: 39 “For I say unto you,…” where “you” means that He is speaking to Jerusalem:

39 “For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

Now, “blessed is he that comes” is a Hebrew way to say “welcome”, “אשרי מי שבא”, “baruch haba”. That is just an idiom, it means “it is welcome”. Somebody comes and you say “baruch haba”, or if it is plural “bruchim habaim”.

So, He is saying He is not coming back until Jerusalem says to Him “welcome”.

Now, whether He means specifically the Jewish population of Jerusalem or significant persantage of the Jewish people or just the spiritual leaders of the Jews? Whatever the specificas are of this, some significal number of Jewish people have to say to Him: “welcome, we welcome You as the Messiah” or He is not gonna return until then.

So, I would say: Satan has a pretty good reason to make sure that not many Jews believe in Jesus. Wouldn't you? Because he knows that as long as Jews do not believe in Jesus, He is not coming back to setup His Kingdom.

Another passage is out of Acts chapter 3 verse 17. This is after the healing of the lame man… Peter and John… And he is talking to the Jewish leaders there and explaining about how this man was healed through the power of the Yeshua's name and so forth and the fact that they have handed Him over to be crusified. And in verse 17 Peter sais:

17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled.
19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you:
21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

So, Peter is talking about the fact that He is ascended to Heaven and Heaven is going to retain Him until this time of restitution or restoration… And this time of restoration is contingent upon the repentance of the Jewish people. Because He is calling the Jewish people, specifically, “repent ye therefore…” And this will be “the times of restitution” and then He will send the Messiah back. So, I would say Satan has a good reason to make sure Jews do not believe in Jesus, would not you?

One other passage is Romans 11:11. Paul says, talking about the fact that the Jewish people did not recognize the Messiah (some of them did not… but a lot of them did but the leadership for the most part did not). And Paul says: “11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles,…” (Rom 11:11).

So, because the Jewish people for the most part did not received Him, God says: “Ok, the Gentiles are going to receive Him”. And then listern to what he [Paul] says (to Gentiles he says): “for to provoke them to jealousy”.

So God… It's like the Jewish people for the most part did not want Jesus. So God says, in effect: “Ok, let the Gentiles have Him”. And then when the Jewish people, who did not want Him, see what a blessing the Gentiles get from receiving Him, they will be provoced to jealousy to whant what the Gentiles have. That was the commission and calling.

So, why Jews didn't believe in Jesus? Now, listen to what he says after that, after he talks about provocing them to jealousy, he says: “12 Now if the fall of them” — meaning the Jewish people are stumbling and not seeing the Messiah, not recognise Him — “if the fall of them be the riches of the world,” — i.e. through their rejection of Him riches came to the non-Jewis world — “and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?” (Rom 11:12).

13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

15 For if the casting away of them” — pay attension here, he is not saying 'God is casting away them', because earlier he says in very first verse: 'Hath God cast away his people? God forbid' (Rom 11:1). By the casting what he means: they are casting away of Jesus. If the Jewish people casting away of Yeshua “be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? (Rom 11:15).

You see what Paul is saying here? He is saying: if the Jewish people rejecting their Messiah brought all these wonderful reaches to the Gentile world by bringing the Gentiles in, how much more when the Jewish people receive their Messiah, how much more will,… how much more riches will there be? It will be life from the dead.

So, I would say Satan has a pretty good reason to keep Jewish people from believing in their Messiah.
