Lincoln a Friend of The Jews

horizontal rule

I came across this article and I thought it was terrific! Abraham Lincoln did so much for this country. This God fearing man of conviction and courage, a man who ran for the presidency on eight occasions, was instrumental in freeing the slaves and now I find out he helped God's people.

When our leaders walk with God and obey him, we all are recipients of their obedience to Him. What a great president Abraham Lincoln was and I'm sure we all will see him soon.  Where are the men of faith and courage like Abraham Lincoln? Are there any leaders left that have a profound respect of God and His word? If they're out there, we need them to step forward now! Our nation was blessed, in part, because we had leaders like Lincoln who took the Bible at face value and believed every word on it's pages. Lincoln took the Bible literally. He believed that what God said He meant.

A man of peace, faith, courage, love of country and love for his God and His People - The Jews.
Genesis 12:3

Lincoln a Friend of The Jews…
By Herb Geduld, www.JewishWorldReview.com

Throughout history, Jews have had great friends and mortal enemies as rulers in countries in which they lived. Perhaps no American president has been a greater friend of the Jewish people then Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln was the first American president to become officially involved in questions of Jewish equality when he urged Congress to the chaplaincy laws to permit rabbis to become military chaplains.

In January 1863, he revoked the only incident of official and anti-Jewish discrimination when he countermanded Ulysses S. Grant’s infamous order number 11, which expelled Jews from Northern Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Lincoln also appointed seven Jewish generals to the Union forces.

What were the reasons for Lincoln’s concerned and friendly attitude toward the Jews? First and foremost was the fact that by the time of the Civil War, Jews had become a factor in American Life. During the Revolutionary War and the founding of America, Jews numbered a minuscule 2,500 out of a population of approximately 4 million. By 1840, they had grown to only 15,000, but 20 years later, in 1860, the Jewish population had risen to 150,000, out of a nation of 30 million. The Jews emerged from a relatively docile and unseen element in the population to a viable minority, striving for its own rights and recognition. With the increased Jewish population, the future president new Jews as admirable neighbors, even in the little towns where he grew up.

Lewis Salzenstein was a storekeeper/livestock trader in the town of Athens, Illinois, near New Salem, where Lincoln spent six years. When Lincoln was postmaster, he collected the mail from “Old Salty’s” store, which served as the regional post office. He became good friends with Salzenstein, who remembered by a town historian as “doing more than any other man toward bettering the improvements and the mode of living in this section.”

Perhaps Lincoln's most valued and personal Jewish friend prior to his presidency was Abraham Jonas, an English Jew who settled Kentucky and Illinois. Jonas and Lincoln became good friends and political Allies. Lincoln also had many Jewish friends during his law years in Springfield, Illinois. One of them was a neighbor, Julius Hammerslough, who visited Lincoln while he was in Washington and who accompanied Lincoln's funeral train on its mournful journey back to Springfield.

There was another fundamental reason for Lincoln's affinity for Jews and Judaism. That was his profound respect and depth of knowledge of the Bible. Although he was not conventionally religious, Lincoln, like many frontiers and men of his day, had spent much time in his youth reading the Hebrew scriptures. He would often quote from books of the Prophets during his speeches, legislatures and had an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the book of psalms.

His last words, according to his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, were, “how I should like to visit Jerusalem some time.” Felled by John Wilkes Booth’s bullet, he never got his wish…but Believers know that he will.

If we only had a leader right now like Abe Lincoln we might not be in the mess we find ourselves in today...

If the United States continues to alienate Israel, we will cease to enjoy God's protection, and that will be a fearful day when the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob turns His back on the U.S. Its time to pray...pray that the Lord will save as many people as possible before the tribulation period (The Time of Jacobs Trouble) begins! Please read Jeremiah 30 | Malachi 4  |  Zechariah 12-14

Until Next Time Lord Willing,

John 14:27; Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Romans 10:8-11: "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is LORD," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame." (NIV)

Because, in truth, because they have misled my people, saying, "Peace," when there is no peace; and because,
when the people build a wall, these prophets smear whitewash on it. Say to those who smear whitewash on it
that it shall fall.
 (Ezekiel 13:1-16 / NRSV)

'But if the watchman sees the sword
coming and does not blow the trumpet and the
people are not warned, and a sword comes and
takes a person from them, he is taken away in his
iniquity; but his blood I will require from the
watchman's hand.' Ezekiel 33:6

Then those who feared the Lord spoke to
one another, And the Lord listened and heard
them; So a book of remembrance was written
before Him For those who fear the Lord And
who meditate on His name. AMEN! Malachi 3:16
