“Modern-day Jews are not God’s chosen people, said Pope Shenouda III, the head of Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church”.
This is a statement given on Sept. 28th, 2011.
“Do not believe their claims that they are God’s chosen people, because it is not true,” Shenouda said during his weekly sermon on Wednesday evening at the papal residence in Abbasseya.
When there were no believers on earth the Jews were really God’s chosen people, but God’s chosen people are now all those who believe in the existence of God and carry out all God’s teachings, he added.
Shenouda said he had spoken earlier with former US President Jimmy Carter, and explained to him that Jews were called God’s chosen people because they were the only worshipers on earth, while the rest of its inhabitants were pagans.
Once billions believed in the existence of God, the Jews no longer were God’s chosen people, he said, and now all those who believe in God and have true faith are God’s chosen people.

The large majority of Evangelical Christian leaders accept Copts as Christians. But few evangelicals have much knowledge about Coptic Orthodoxy.
This religious movement also have a “pope”, and Jew-hate and Replacement theology is deeply rooted in the Egyptian Coptic minority.
The best exposure of the Palestinian-Coptic nexus, is Abu Mazen’s gift to the Coptic Pope. It is not a “holy Koran”, and obviously not a Bible. But an icon of the “holy madoona and her son”. They are the royals, acceptable for the entire “Palestine movement”.
Not so strange. The Vatican was one of the first non Muslim nations to recognize the PLO formed in 1964. The official Vatican Recognition came in 1974, 20 years before the Vatican recognized the state of Israel:
Pope Paul IV had the following statement ready for the 25th anniversary of the “Pontifical Mission for Palestine” in June 1974. Written on the website of the Papal Mission to the Middle East.
“One of the clearest signs of the Holy See’s concern for the welfare of the Palestinians, who are particularly dear to us because they are the people of the Holy Land, because they include followers of Christ and because they have been and still are being so tragically tried.”

When the pope visited Jerusalem in 1964, the Vatican never complained about “illegal and immoral”Jordanian and Muslim unilateral actions there .
The PLO was the Pope’s best bid to make both the Zionists and the Kingdom of Jordan to accept the Popes plan to make Jerusalem an International Zone.
This plan had to be kept on ice as the consequence of the Jordanian occupation of East Jerusalem in 1948.
The same year the Zionists got their own state with West Jerusalem as capital.
When this “zone” finally comes into existence, it must obviously be governed by someone.
The ruler of this Zone will be the last and final antichrist. This ruler will not return to Earth in the clouds of Heaven, but rather receive a red carpet welcome at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv.
He will be a holy place; for both Israel and Judah he will be a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare.
In 1967, both the PLO and the Pope faced another serious setback, when the Zionists liberated the city of Jerusalem from Jordanian occupation.
The PLO, the Copts and the Pope are in agreement in regards to “the liberation of Palestine”. They face a second enemy in the Muslim brotherhood and their offspring Hamas, that needs to be brought on board in a great compromise.
Iran can not accept a “Palestine” that will be ruled by the followers of the son and the Madonna. The Iranian regime want Israel to become a pure Islamic state ruled by Iranian inspired sharia laws. Just like the coming republic of Egypt.
Only if they can agree to make peace with each other, and make Zionist Israel their common enemy, they can become “successful”.
Very few wants to listen to Jesus the Messiah, and obey the gospel.
1 Peter 2:6
For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
Behold: A grand compromise will come. One of the followers of the son of the “Queen of Heaven” will be the common denominator.
When this rule is about to collapse, and the Jews face the final betrayal and the ultimate Holocaust, the true Messiah will return to Zion.
There are horrible times ahead for the Jewish people, and all who live on the Earth. The rejection of the Messiah is almost total in this generation.
But the days of great tribulation will be shortened by the Messiah, for the sake of His elect. The elect is still around on Earth in small pockets, badly persecuted and hated by the entire World.
