"I Can't Wait for Armageddon!":The Deceptions of Christian Zionism

I believe as Bible tells us, that Christians are to bless the Jewish people and that those who curse them [Genesis 12:3] will come under God's judgement. Jesus Christ was a Jew and the Jewish people have suffered centuries of oppression along with Christians. The main place I am coming from in this article is asking this question: Given that the powers that be have oppressed the Jewish people [and Christians] for centuries, why trust the politicians NOW when it comes to the fate of the Jewish people? Why should anyone trust the high level leaders in the new world order, powers and principalities of this world to protect the Jews after examining history of centuries of Jewish betrayal, persecution and oppression [as well as Christians?] Christian Zionism on its surface sounds good, but there are some very worrisome trends within it.

Some have confused Bible Prophecy with the machinations of "secular nations and politics" and co mingled the two into a mess. Israel as a secular nation does have the right to defend itself against Islamic Jihadism, but this does not led itself to a secular Israel is always right stance being biblical. Many do not seem to understand the real deal of what Spiritual Israel truly is and how it incorporates Jews and everyone else who comes to be born again in Jesus Christ. [Galatians 3:8-9]

One thing Ive noticed, the satanic powers of this world love to use both sides against the middle. They desire a "war of civilizations". Albert Pike, top Freemason, predicted three world wars, this has always been the plan, and Rome has had its hands in all of them. The luciferian global elites desire that the world's population be reduced and that death and destruction reign. God is our only Hope as this world grows closer to the worse events ever. WW III is to usher in the chaos for the Antichrist to take power and for the world government to take full control. It is known that the false 7 year peace plan in Israel is part of this. In other words the false religion of Islam coupled with Talmudic Judaism on the other side are both being played like a fiddle by the wicked powers that be in this world. Two sides against the middle, to make the setting perfect for the Antichrist, to bring his FALSE PEACE as the SOLUTION.[Daniel 8:25]

History shows us the endless crusades, and inquisitions [The Holocaust was basically an updated Inquisition against the Jewish people and others] with Hitler and his Nazi [knights] following satanic commands. These are now being enacted in modern form. Think about it. why has America been called into endless Middle Eastern wars, that have helped to bankrupt this nation, and who have they really served? The NWO has always desired chaos, death and destruction in the world. There is a reason many referred to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as “modern crusades”.

The following video is done by a leftist news journalist Max Blumenthal[posting this does not mean I endorse many of his views, but see the flavor of the attitudes here]

Watching this video, which visits a CUFI "Christians United For Israel" conference, you will hear such views as this..."I'm looking forward to Armageddon" I've heard that one before from extreme Christian Zionists, as if when all the bombs start going off and there are mushroom clouds in the distance[yes it is prophesied in the Bible: Rev. 9:18] it's going to be like watching a video game. Left Behind training and extreme pre-trib rapture--"you'll be out of here before any of the suffering starts." really comes together in one giant delusion.

The lady who says that Satan is trying to destroy the Jews [along with Christians] is right so why DO THEY TRUST THE POLITICIANS in stopping that?

Bible prophecy does tell us horrible things are coming [before the Blessed Hope of the return of Jesus Christ], this of course includes war, suffering, death and tribulation, the problem is you have these Christian Zionists who think just because the Bible predicts wars, means they should be cheerleaders for the destruction to come. The Christian Zionist leaders say they believe Bible Prophecy, but true believers in Bible Prophecy can discern good and evil, they do not support evil agendas nor do they take the side of those who seek to destroy; they realize their only hope and that of everyone else is in Jesus Christ.

Sadly many well-meaning Christians have been misled to support these false groups. They have the heart-felt desire to bless the Jewish people not realizing how they are being deceived by religious leaders and politicians. Overall this video is an expose of Hagee's group Christians United For Israel which is one of the headliners in Christian Zionism. Christian Zionism is predominant in many evangelical, mega churches and even groups like Calvary Chapel which hold CUFI meetings on their premises.

As you watch this video notice how many politicians are connected to these events. Lieberman is cheered for his support of Israel. Politics and religion are always a bad mix. Hagee also worked to help McCain's run for the presidency.

But that aside, Hagee, brings in false doctrine for Hagee, like the Pope and Vatican, teaches that the Jews do not need to come to Jesus Christ for salvation, in other words, that they are saved under the first covenant, given that the apostles [many Jews themselves] witnessed to Jews, this stance makes absolutely no sense. Years ago, I watched some of Hagee sermons, they were interesting in the beginning, but very shortly after I was born again, I shut off his show forever.

Read for yourself: The Houston Chronicle newspaper quoted Hagee's own shocking words...

"I'm not trying to convert the Jewish people to the Christian faith...In fact, trying to convert Jews is a waste of time. Jews already have a covenant with God and that has never been replaced by Christianity." (Houston Chronicle, April 30, 1988, sec, 6, pg. 1).

Compare to that: Paul's strong and loving desire to reach Jews for Jesus Christ:

Act 28:23 And when they had appointed him a
day, there came many to him into [his] lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God,
persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of
the law of Moses, and [out of] the prophets, from morning till evening.

Think people are being lied to? I sure do! But for some odd reason, Hagee's false teachings seem of no concern to some supporting evangelicals even those who do not hold the same positions.

Add to that, that Hagee, has called for war with Iran, over and over. But it gets even worse then that, Hagee has publically denied Jesus Christ as being the Messiah! Watch this video where Hagee says "Jesus Christ did not come to earth to be the Messiah". How much clearer can this man announce his repudiation of basic Christian truths?

Israel as a nation really does face many military pressures and threats from Islamic terrorists and suicide bombers, but this does not excuse Christians becoming hyper-militarist and denying Christian truths, or preaching bomb everyone instead of preaching the gospel to them. Sin is in every group, and having the attitude that America should turn the Middle East into a glass parking lot, isn't of God. Even realizing within Calvary Chapel, much of these militant positions were taken was not a good thing. Even Chuck Smith has spoken at Christian Zionist events like this one:[this particular book signing raised questions considering who he shared the platform with]

Here is the core piece, Christian Zionist leaders are overly enmeshed with the halls with power and keep crying for war. The excuse that this is going to happen- Yes, Bible prophecy says it will but what will God be thinking of those who support and defend the workers of inequity in this world, who will bring death to millions and betrayal of the Jewish people and Christians and ensure even more Muslims reject the gospel? Why wouldn't the Jews in Israel be betrayed by their politicians the same as Americans are now being betrayed? Some secular and orthodox Jews now even are picking up that something is wrong with the whole picture. The new world order wants the nuclear show-down and it will eventually have it.

There is a reason Jesus Christ told us this:

Matt 24:22
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake, those days shall be shortened.

Even more creepy as these Christian Zionist groups call for Jews to move back to Israel at the same time, they remind people of the great nuclear holocaust to come to Israel. If you truly loved and cared about people would you tell them to move to the place where you know the most harm is going to come to them? The discrepancy of these people calling for Jews to move to Israel a place they admittedly say millions of Jews will die in, is alarming. Even others including outside observers and Jewish people have noted this contradiction.

Non-Christians hear this stuff, and react understandably, to the lack of love, true Christian charity and war cries. Here we see how these hirelings work to seek to destroy the testimony of the gospel. From a comment at this link:

"I've heard the broadcasts of Calvary Chapel. They look forward to and revel in the destruction of unbelievers when warlord Jesus returns to take
care of this scum. Btw, I also heard a Calvary Chapel pastor preach that 2/3 of the Jews will perish in the holocaust (his word). That's a revelation (no pun
intended) about the Jews they claim to love so much. And remember, that if America becomes a "Christian" nation, nonChristrians [sic] wil be boarding cattle cars very soon afterward."
It's scary when the God-given conscience of unbelievers alerts them to the fact something is wrong the overall picture. All of this ties into the false PreTrib Rapture too. No that belief doesn't cancel anyone's salvation, but so wonder some unbelievers say Christians are "bloodthirsty" when some of the leaders seem to not be able to wait for WWIII where millions will die. They all think they will be whisked away out of the conflagration.

Here we see some of the fruits of these false teachers and those who have married the politicians of this world. The Dominionists and a bunch of state worshipping false preachers teach an inverse of the gospel, a false jesus and a false love of the world with political answers coming first, invoking demonic doctrines, misusing Bible prophecy, deigning to build 'christ's kingdom' for themselves and with the temple rebuilders seeking to usher in the "end times" [WW III] and all that as quickly as possible. There are even Christian Zionist teachers bringing in very odd teachings such as teaching that animal sacrifices will be brought back in the Millennium kingdom [negating Hebrews 10] to add to the false doctrines and teachings already discussed.

Dominionism isn't just the hard core Reconstructionists anymore, but it is starting to encompass, all those who desire to marry church and state--[such as supporting wars for "religious agendas"] What kind of Christians want millions to die? This isn't about the gospel or love for anyone but about religion, power and politics rolled into one.

These type of statements speak for themselves:

Pastor Chuck Smith, founder of the Calvary Baptist [sic] Church, when asked whether he had any compunctions about unleashing a holy war that would lead to the possible extermination of millions of Jews and Muslims, replied, "Frankly, no, because it is all part of Biblical prophesy." (Jeffrey Steinberg, Temple Mount … ibid.)

Something is very wrong here.

This false doctrine of Dominionism has permeated so many churches. The vitriol against biblical Christianity is astounding and it comes from within the church. We are being pitted against each other deliberatly, they use a Nationalistic Patriotism and equate it with being a true Chrisitan and if you don't adhere to there worldview you are unAmerican and the devil's minion. sounds too eerily like Nazism. Yet they scream you are a Marxist, or label you as contentious, bringing discord, keeping the body from unity in the endeavor to save America, blaming you for the demise of our Nation when it is the wickednes of man that brings judgement. We as Christians and even the Jewish people are pawns used to further the goal of the One World Order and the One world religion of the Beast. It has arrived... :(

Bible Believer said...

I know, Dominionism is everywhere. You are right it has arrived. This is one error so few see through and what gets them to line up unquestioningly behind the politicians and sold out preachers who are working for antichrist agendas behind the scenes. Well it is just like the Nazis, most of the churches stood behind their ascent to power. [not just Catholic but plenty of the Protestants and others, church and state married together into one big poisonous brew]. What is one thing to note is these Christian Zionists, are all into the whole 'globalist" and one world order stuff as well, it is another path to usher evangelicals into the one world order and religion as you mention. I found this interesting article on "Christian Imperalism" I am still checking it out. Has a lot of information.

So true. The Christianizing of this country is not being done by true Christinity, not by a mile. The so called Christianity being implemented is false and was never Christian and is using false ebangelical movements to aid in its agenda. True Christians, as well as liberals, atheists, and all who don't go along, are all headed for the same big trouble.

Bible Believer said...

I agree. There is this growing false antichrist 'Christianity" growing. It has all the evangelicals who are signed into the ecumenical order working on behalf of it. I agree everyone that doesn't go along is headed for trouble. Of course most of the deceived evangelicals have marched into exactly where the new world order wanted them. They could form a new 'rightist" theocracy [a la the Dominionists, Palin or whoever comes down the pike later in response to Obama [the whole right left pendelum swing] and seem to have already marshalled the deceived evangelical troops. What is sad is there are many rejecting the gospel believing the koran burners and war-thirsty represent actual Christians.

"Given that the powers that be have oppressed the Jewish people [and Christians] for centuries, why trust the politicians NOW when it comes to the fate of the Jewish people?"

Who said we are supposed to TRUST politicians? Please show us that from Scripture. What we are commanded to do is PRAY for those whom GOD has set in authority, whether we like them or NOT.

What you fail to understand, BECAUSE YOU DO NOT read God's Word or believe it, is the FACT that God said there would be this NATION called ISRAEL and that HE would bring them back to HIS land which HE gave to them, HENCE the Zionist movement. The MOUNT is called MOUNT ZION, and that is what Yeshua/Jesus is coming back to to set up HIS Kingdom. Get with God's Program!

believer in Messiah said...

By the way, Dominionism is NOT the Jews having the land, Dominionism is Roman Catholicism, Calvinism, Lutheranism and all those who think for one second that the kingdom of God will be here before the Messiah. This dominionism is man taking control of the earth before the Messiah comes. Man are you guys DUMB. Christendumb at it's best.

Bible Believer said...

The Christian Zionists trust in the politicians, after all why are so many invited to those rallies. Hagee isn't hanging out with doctors and/or teachers, he is hanging out with politicians. Praying for those in authority does not mean helping to promote godless political agendas and new world order Middle Eastern wars.

Jesus Christ said His kingdom would NOT be of this world, so those who want to make it of this world via Domininionism or the secular state of Israel have got it ALL WRONG.

Jhn 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

Rom 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they [are] not all Israel, which are of Israel:

Christian Zionism and Dominionism right now are walking hand in hand.

The New Apostolic Reformation is intertwined with Christian Zionism.

what does "believeinmessiah", think all the talk of DOMINION over the 7 areas has to do with? ["the reclaiming the seven mountains" stuff]

The "new apostolics" are deep into the Christian Zionist movement and hooked to CUFI. Stephan Strang [an NAR "apostle"] is on its board of directors.

This futurist doctrine is totally false and is actually furthering the Antichrist. Anon. #2.

Which Jesus are so-called Christian Zionists serving anyway? They love the so-called Jews (how can you PROVE your lineage since all Temple records were destroyed by the Romans in 70 A.D.). But only because those people allegedly point to the time Christians will check out of this world. But when that happens the Jews can go to hell for all they care. So much for Christian love. They'll be enjoying pie in the sky while Antichrist does his thing and unleashes hell on the Jews.

"I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee" is not talking about the physical seed of Abraham. In Galatians 3 Paul tells us the "seed" is singular, and that "seed" is Jesus Christ. Later on in that chapter Paul tells us "if ye be Christ's, then ye be Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise" so all believers no matter the ethnicity is the seed of Abraham through Jesus Christ, and heirs according to the promise. The "bless them that bless thee" would be talking about those who are of Christ.........James
