Video "Onward Christian Zionists!"
This is a secular video with secular academics, I do not agree with everything in this video [the gospel is for all] and this is not an endorsement, but it is interesting to view just as a summing up, and an explanation of the beliefs of Christian Zionism. The first speaker Irving Wesley Hall is correct about the ties of Christian Zionism to belief in the Rapture. They are right about some thinking the end was coming at other times, this of course can be abused to fulfill 2 Peter 3-5. Even if Darby was a false teacher, does not mean that God's prophecy is not true or Jesus Christ's return is a million years from now.
Much of Christian Zionism IS based on John Nelson Darby's teaching as well as the false teaching of the Rapture. What is interesting to learn about is how NEW some of these teachings are including dispensationalism. They also bring up Scofield who sought to dictate what the Bible taught, problem is, people starting reading him more then the Bible itself!
It is interesting to me, how Christian Zionism used to be a marginal movement until more recently. The Bible does have prophecies regarding modern nation-states that have come true, but here you must too read the context of God's Word. Does Israel always mean the secular nation of Israel? Jerusalem [in this world] WILL become a cup of trembling, but ask yourself why?
The problem with Christian Zionism, is the false teachings actually have led them to align with the wicked controllers of this world. So Christian Zionism was a "fringe" movement until Hal Lindsey came along? I would believe that. I've written about Hal Lindsey before and it is obvious he popularized the now agreed upon end time scenarios regarding the Rapture, Christian Zionism and more. What is interesting is Hall talks about the media and how it was used to expand Christian Zionism. I thought about that and he is right! What do we see now with the books, the movies like "Left Behind" and bible conferences? How many views out there are alternative views? They have been feeding this stuff to people like crazy. Later Hall, says that the Rapture is a dominant American belief. Why wouldn't it be, when the rest of the world has seen martyrship and suffering TODAY? It wouldn't sell in a place where Christians know that being whisked away to the clouds when trouble starts hasn't already happened.
Notice the CUFI speakers which include Senator Brownback, a chairman of the Republican party, the Israeli past ambassador Daniel Ayalon who speaks of the spirit of "god" but from what I looked up about him is not even Christian. He says "We will defend the spirit of 'god" which unites us". The Bible tells us and this applies to everyone that those who do not have the son [Jesus Christ] do not have the Father so what "God" does he mean?
1 John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
That is the strangest thing in the Christian Zionist world, the inclusion of Jews who have not accepted Jesus Christ nor have become Christians in that world. Even if they remain Jews who reject Jesus Christ as the messiah, they are invited to these events. Netanyahu who has been invited to speak at Calvary Chapels is not a Christian nor a Messianic Jew. Unity of Israeli politics trumps even belief in Jesus Christ!
Think about how Christian Zionism has everyone focused on this world and IT'S LAND. Spiritual Israel is thrown overboard for secular Israel of THIS WORLD. Today I got an email from one of those Christian Zionists, claiming I hate a certain group of people which is absolute nonsense. This one pops up out of the woodwork while taking a rest from her message board antics to try and throw the 'you're an anti-semite" dirtballs hoping they will stick. Christians are to love all people. That includes Arabs too by the way. I have prayed for this person hoping that one day they will figure out truly loving the Jewish people is not bowing down before these false teachings but telling them the truth in Jesus Christ, looking for eternity not fighting for land and the RICHES of this world. That Jew and Gentile, we are to be one in Jesus Christ not Israeli politics.
Galatians 3:18 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
In their minds "loving the Jewish people" means being a patsy to the global elites and masonics who are deceiving endless groups of people as they re-fight the crusades for the Vatican and Antichrist to take over Jerusalem and institute the one world order. Just like other ideologues they use the language of the left to scream "hater" at anyone who is not with their program. By the way, not every Jew is a Zionist, I know some who are NOT. I suppose such a person does not even exist in the lexicon out there but some Jews, well given their history of persecution, are not the types to trust every politician.
Those leaders as I have said before, who cheer for the coming of WW3, do NOT love anyone, namely even the Jews and others who are over there.
If anything my message to the Jewish people I know, is Jesus Christ is the Messiah and we all are to be born again in Him. For those who make the focus THIS WORLD, they have already lost sight of eternity and of God's true kingdom.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
John Hagee is exposed in this video too.
The information about the Christian Zionist world being worth a Billion dollars even terms of media, was interesting as well. I would not be surprised. He brings up some of the anti-semitism within Christian Zionism. I agree with parts of that:
Hitler doing God's will? No, Hitler was working for Satan. Talk about skewing scripture.
