The verse is Jesus Himself talking to the actual Jews. These are His people because Hebrews 7:14 says that Christ came from the tribe of Judah so
Jesus the Son is the Jew, not God the Father. He is saying he knows their poverty because in the end of times (Revelation=end of times), they are in a
low state. Jewish people now are NOT in a low state but own many establishments now, so obviously He isn't talking to a people who are rich in the
end of times. Yes, they were once slaughtered in Europe but it's specific that in the end times, the biblical Jews would still be at the bottom.
Jewish people are NOT at the bottom!
Further, Jew is short for Judah. To be a Jew means that you came from the tribe of JUDAH. No religion, no conversion can make you a Jew. Christ
continues on to say that He knows the people who say they are Jews and are NOT! So the people who call themselves Jews are not Jews because they do
NOT identify with anything the bible says about the Tribe of Judah. Think about it.
Jeremiah 14:2 describes the people of Judah and AGAIN, they do not identify with the people who call themselves Jews to this day. You see how they say
JewISH? ISH is a suffix that means to be like but is not actual. Many people are confused about Jews and Gentiles but in 2Peters 3:16, Timothy says
that Paul intentionally wrote his writings to be hard to understand and that people would twist his words for their own evil intentions. If you want
to Really make people upset, Revelation 1:19 describes Jesus' color and the image of Christ today does NOT identify with what the bible describes! If
Christ is NOT the image that society portrays then how can His people (JEWS) be? In Hosea 4:6, God said that His chosen people are destroyed from lack
of knowledge so how can ALL of His chosen people know who they are before the second coming of Christ when they are destroyed (separated, lost
mentally as a people)?
ALSO, in Deuteronomy 28, that entire chapter is of God telling the children of Israel the curses that He would bring upon them for disobeying. The
people who call themselves Jews have NOT went through any of those curses but I promise you, there is a people that has met every one of those curses
from God. Psalm 83:4 said that nations will destroy God's chosen and make them forget who they are. 1 Kings 8: 47, says that His chosen will remember
themselves in the LAND they were carried captive. Jewish people today weren't carried captive to a land, just the concentration camps. John 8:32 says
the truth will set you free for a reason.
