“For there is no respect of persons with God.” -Romans 2:11
I really get sick every time I hear preachers such as John Hagee and Jerry Falwell demonize the Arab people, while glorifying the Jews. This is wrong. The Word of God teaches no such heresy. Deuteronomy 9:6 states “Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people.” The Jews today are as stiffnecked with pride as they were 4,000 years ago. The present nation of Israel was secured through tyranny, driving out the Arabs at gun-point, and not by the hand of God. Ezekiel 37:21-23 tell us that the Lord will regather Israel when He returns to reign as King after the Tribulation Period. Just as Abraham and Sara decided to take matters into their own hands (i.e. Hagar and Ishmael) instead of waiting for God’s promise–so have elite Jews today decided to control their own affairs without God.
Sadly, most Jews are hellbound without Christ, following demonic Judaism and the Kaballah instead of the Word of God. No unsaved Jew will ever see the Promised Land (2nd Thessalonians 1:8 applies to Jews too). God is NO respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). Zionism is a false doctrine. What is Zionism? Basically, it is the teaching that Israel should be treated more special than everyone else. Romans 2:11 clearly states that God is NO respecter of persons, and neither should we be. John Hagee is a stooge for wealthy Jews, who keep him rich. Please don’t misunderstand me, I love Jewish people, but I love Arab people EQUALLY. I’m tired of preachers stereotyping all Arabs based on the hatred of a few radical Islamists. As Christians, we all know the pains we endured during the Jim Bakker days. We are just as wrong to demonize all Arabs, as unbelievers are to demonize all Christians. The truth is that MOST Arabs and Jews are unsaved, and BOTH nations are in desperate need of Jesus Christ.
Many Arabs Have More Morality than Americans and Jews
I was listening to John Hagee preaching the other night, WORLD WAR III HAS BEGUN, with Jerry Falwell by his side. Hagee was saying all sorts of horrible things about the Arabs, and how murderous they are. Then he talked about how great America is, and our friends the Jews. Interestingly, Hagee didn’t mention the 50,000,000 abortions in America. Do some research and you’ll find that Americans have murdered 25 times more people through abortion than all the Arab wars combined. In the 8 year Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988) alone, the death toll reached 1,000,000 lives. In those same years, Americans MURDERED over 12,000,000 babies!!! Who are the savages Mr. Hagee? Who are the monsters? Who are crazy and filled with hatred? Please don’t misunderstand me, I love America, but I detest and loath the sins of our nation. I’m tired of Zionists trying to paint a picture of Arab people as the scum of the earth. Biblically, we are ALL hell-deserving sinners, prone to disobedience and wrath (Ephesians 2:2,3). It is wrong for Christians to continually attack the Arab people because of their false religion, while overlooking the false religion of the Jews. The Jews are as messed up as the Muslim Arabs. Remember, the Arabs are the seed of Abraham too. We should not be biased towards one group over the other. We are to love all people. To label the Arabs as suicidal maniacs is to indict ourselves as murderous maniacs (and we Americans have certainly taught the world how to kill).
John Hagee’s Delusions
The following quotes are from John Hagee’s website (NOTE: my comments will be in black type).
Everything Christians do should be based upon the Biblical text. Here are seven solid Bible reasons why Christians should support Israel.
Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.” Point: God has promised to bless the man or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God.
Carefully notice that “thee” is singular and only refers to Abraham. Also, Rome annihilated the Jews in A.D. 70 and lived in splendor for centuries to come.
…Christians owe a debt of eternal gratitude to the Jewish people for their contributions that gave birth to the Christian faith. Jesus Christ, a prominent Rabbi from Nazareth said, “Salvation is of the Jews!” (St. John 4:22) consider what the Jewish people have given to Christianity:
a) The Sacred Scripture
b) The Prophets
c) The Patriarchs
d) Mary, Joseph, and Jesus Christ of Nazareth
e) The Twelve Disciples
f) The Apostles
It is not possible to say, “I am a Christian” and not love the Jewish people.
Hagee speaks total heresy! How can he idolize the Jews and never say one good word about the Arabs when most Jews today are hellbound Christ-rejecters? Hagee claims that a genuine Christian must love the Jewish people, but what about Africans or Arabs Mr. Hagee? For anyone to teach that we should love Jews above the rest of humanity is wicked. This is Zionism. Why are the Jews so SPECIAL Mr. Hagee? Just because God used Israel for His divine purposes doesn’t mean we owe the Jews anything. There ISN’T one Scripture that instructs us to show gratitude towards the Jews for what God has done. Hagee is wrong. All Jesus meant in John 4:22 is that true Salvation is found in the Messiah of Israel.
While some Christians try to deny the connection between Jesus of Nazareth and the Jews of the world, Jesus never denied his Jewishness. He was born Jewish, He was circumcised on the eighth day in keeping with Jewish tradition, He had his Bar Mitzvah on his 13th birthday, He kept the law of Moses, He wore the Prayer Shawl Moses commanded all Jewish men to wear, He died on a cross with an inscription over His head, “King of the Jews!”
Mr. Hagee needs to read Romans 10:12 “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” So why does Mr. Hagee glorify Jewish people over others? I am not putting down the Jewish people at all. I am simply saying that, biblically, Jews are NO BETTER or MORE SPECIAL than anyone else. God offers salvation to all, Gentile or Jew.
Jesus considered the Jewish people His family. Jesus said (Matthew 25:40) “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren (the Jewish people… Gentiles were never called His brethren), ye have done it unto me.”
Mark 3:35 plainly puts Mr. Hagee to shame “For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” Shame on you John Hagee for elevating Jews over the Gentiles, by teaching that only the Jews are Jesus’ family. Mr. Hagee states above that “Gentiles were never called His brethren.” Well, Mark 3:35 makes you a LIAR Mr. Hagee, because Jesus calls every Arab who believes upon Him, His brother. John 6:40 states that God’s will is for us to believe on Christ. Every born-again Arab is part of the family of God, as much as any saved Jew. Galatians 3:7 states “Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.” Thank God for the many saved Arabs in the world, and saved Jews too.
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee.” (Psalm 122:6) the scriptural principle of prosperity is tied to blessing Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
That’s a lie. Psalm 122:6 promises prosperity to those who love God. Unfortunately most Jews reject Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, and DON’T love God. The same is true of most Arabs. The same is true of most Americans. The same is true of most of the people in this sinful world (1st John 5:19). The notion that there is a special blessing to those who give money to Israel is ridiculous and absurd. U.S. taxpayers give Israel (against our will) about $8,000,000,000 a year, and our dollar has still lost 30% of it’s value since the year 2000. Out manufacturing jobs are nearly all gone overseas. Our federal leaders have squandered our Social Security money, and have recklessly run the nation’s debt up over $9,000,000,000,000!!! Blessed? Incidentally, it’s Jewish bankers and elites who are behind all this evil. By the way, Karl Marx was Jewish, and based his Communist Manifesto upon the demonic Jewish Talmud. Again, I’m not prejudiced against anyone, but the Jews are no better than anyone else. I don’t blame everyday Jewish people for the evils of elite Freemasonry Jews.
Why did Jesus Christ go to the house of Cornelius in Capernaum and heal his servant, which was ready to die? What logic did the Jewish elders use with Jesus to convince Him to come into the house of a Gentile and perform a miracle?
The logic they used is recorded in Luke 7:5; “For He loveth our nation, and He hath built us a synagogue.” The message? This Gentile deserves the blessing of God because he loves our nation and has done something practical to bless the Jewish people.
This is an absurd claim. Hagee teaches that the only reason Jesus healed the centurion’s servant was because he loved the Jews, and had done something for them. That’s crazy! Matthew 8:13 plainly tells us that the Centurion’s servant was healed because of FAITH “And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.” It was the man’s FAITH that prompted the Lord to heal the servant, for without faith we cannot please God (Hebrews 11:6). Hagee would actually lead us to believe that by contributing to a godless nation of rebellious Jews that God is going to bless us. You cannot show me that in the Bible.
Why did God the Father select the house of Cornelius in Caesarea (Acts Chapter 10) to be the first Gentile house in Israel to receive the Gospel? The answer is given repeatedly in Acts 10.Acts 10:2 “a devout man, (Cornelius) and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.” Who were the people to whom Cornelius gave these alms? They were the Jews!
Again, Hagee is perverting the Word of God. Acts 10:2 plainly states that Cornelius was “A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.” Notice that Hagee ASSUMES that Cornelius is giving alms to the JEWS, but that is not what the Bible says. It says that Cornelius gave alms to THE PEOPLE (Jews and Gentiles). Do you really expect us to believe Mr. Hagee that Cornelius, who feared God, only gave money to Jewish people? No way! Also notice that Cornelius feared God. I don’t care how much money you give to the Jews, or anyone for that matter, God is not going to bless you if you don’t fear Him. TV host, Oprah Winfrey, has donated millions of dollars to the poor in Africa, but she promotes the godless New Age heresy more than anyone, and certainly does not love the God of the Bible. She is headed for Hell, and her prosperity today is of the Devil.
God told the prophet Jeremiah, concerning the Jews, in Jeremiah 7:16 and 14:11 “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee… Pray not for this people for their good.” The Jews had sinned, and God was angry at them. Do you think the Jews are any better today? They are 100 times worse!!! They still murder their children through abortion, as to Moloch. Jews are no more righteous than the rest of the heathen world, and yet they claim to be God’s people. The Jews are saturated with sin today. Jews today still practice idolatry. In fact, it’s epidemic! Here’s an article written by Jewish Rabbi Shraqa Simmons titled, WHY WE DON’T BELIEVE IN JESUS.
This is the heart of Judaism, CHRIST REJECTION! Lest you should think that only a few Jews believe such Antichrist philosophy, the following quote is taken from the biggest JUDAISM organization in Israel (where I found the above blasphemous article on why they DON’T believe in Jesus).
Aish HaTorah is a world leader in creative Jewish educational programs and leadership training, dedicated to answering the vital question, “Why be Jewish?” Aish HaTorah, founded in Jerusalem by Rabbi Noah Weinberg in 1974, is dedicated to revitalizing the Jewish people by providing opportunities for Jews of all backgrounds to discover their heritage in an atmosphere of open inquiry and mutual respect.
- Aish HaTorah operates 26 full-time branches and on 5 continents
- 100,000 people attend Aish programs annually
- Aish.com receives over 2 million visits each month, with 180,000 unique email subscribers
- 50,000 hours of Torah tapes and MP3s are listened to each year
- 4,500 people attend Aish learning programs in Israel every year
- 200 people have graduated from our rabbinic ordination program
Aish HaTorah’s headquarters is in the Old City of Jerusalem, where the government of Israel awarded Aish a coveted piece of land (emphasis added)– 40 percent of the frontage facing the Western Wall. Construction is nearing completion on a hitech outreach center that features a rooftop vista overlooking the Temple Mount, and theKirk Douglas Theatrewhich will house a dramatic film presentation of the Jewish contribution to humanity. Scheduled to open in 2007, the outreach center anticipates one million visitors annually. As CNN’s Larry King said: “What better location could there be for an institution single-mindedly dedicated to reaching and teaching Jews their heritage?”
Beyond Jewish education, Aish HaTorah is known as a staunch defender of Israel (emphasis added), and has launched various Israel advocacy programs. Aish celebrates Israel Independence Day and Jerusalem Day, and proudly flies the flag of Israel above its World Center at the Western Wall. Over 500 people have made aliyah directly through their involvement with Aish HaTorah.
Folks, that is the apostate condition of Israel today. The Israeli government is godless, “awarding Aish a coveted piece of land” so they can teach millions of Jews why they SHOULDN’T believe in Jesus! Monstrous! Evil! Wicked! Vile! Many Jews today spit on Jesus Christ, and would crucify Him all over again if they had the opportunity! The religious Jewish leaders of today are as Pharisaical and hypocritical as they were 2000 years ago. And yet John Hagee is promising us prosperity if we give money to these Christ-Rejecters. No sir, you are apostate! And the Jews have the audacity to get mad at Mel Gibson’s The Passion of Christ for bringing further light to the fact that they MURDERED THEIR MESSIAH!
Larry King (born Larry H. Zeiger on November 19, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York, was the son of Orthodox Jews who had emigrated from Russia). Larry King said: “What better location could there be for an institution single-mindedly dedicated to reaching and teaching Jews their heritage?” Teaching Jews their heritage? Don’t you realize that their heritage is corrupted? The heritage which Aish HaTorah teaches is reprobate paganism! Let me ask you a question, did Abraham reject the Messiah? No, Abraham believed upon the Messiah and was saved “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness” (Genesis 15:6). We read in Isaiah 43:11 “I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.” We read in Luke 2:11 “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” And I love Romans 4:5 “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him (Jesus) that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.“ Romans 1013 promises “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) shall be saved.” Oh listen all you Jews today “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Salvation may be of the Jews, but 95% of Jews today DON’T HAVE IT! This is the tragic truth. How could Jews today still REJECT their own Savior? Read it for yourself on the biggest Judaism website in the world…WHY WE DON’T BELIEVE IN JESUS.
Listen to this Judaism audio lecture and tell me that these people aren’t serving the Devil. It’s nothing but utter nonsense and mumbo-jumbo… http://www.aish.com/spirituality/philosophy/Audio_-_Who_is_God$.asp (click on “LISTEN NOW” on the webpage).
What is Jerry Falwell teaching his thousands of students at Liberty University? The nation of Israel is in God’s hands, and we are not obligated in any way to befriend Israel today. The Jews, as a nation, rejected their Savior 2000 years ago, and still rejects Jesus today. God will deal with them in the Tribulation Period (i.e., the Time of Jacob’s Trouble).
Hagee actually believes that some Jews are not saved by the cross of Christ, but by prior election and their pedigree in Abraham. There is a way of salvation in Christ and an election of grace for the Jews apart from Christ. This is damnable heresy, which is adamantly condemned by Scriptures such as John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Carefully notice that Jesus spoke this to Nicodemus, a Jew, who was a religious leader over the JEWS. Every lost sinner must be born-again if they want to go to Heaven? 2nd Thessalonians 1:8 applies to everyone.
We support Israel because all other nations were created by an act of men, but Israel was created by an act of God! The Royal Land Grant that was given to Abraham and his seed through Isaac and Jacob with an everlasting and unconditional covenant. (Genesis 12:1-3, 13:14-18, 15:1-21, 17:4-8, 22:15-18, 26:1-5 and Psalm 89:28-37.)
In 586 B.C., God allowed the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, to finally decimate and destroy the city of Jerusalem. Nearly all the Jews were enslaved in Babylon for 70 years, or tortured and killed. God gave up on the nation of Israel, and instead turned to the Gentiles to be soulwinners. Of course, God has not cast away His people (Romans 11:2). Israel, i.e. saved Jews, will be restored to their Promised Land when Christ RETURNS, and not before. Are the Jews God’s people, yes! Are most of the Jews God’s children, no! The Apostle Paul addressed this issue in Romans 10:1-4 “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” What powerful Scriptures for Jews today! Did you read that… that they MIGHT be saved. There is NO guarantee of salvation just because a person is a Jew. The Apostle Paul plainly states that many Jews are NOT saved, because they have religious Judaism without God’s righteousness. Judaizers are going about to establish their own righteousness, and have NOT submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God–which is to believe on Christ (Romans 10:4, For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth). Oh how foolish and arrogant are MOST Jews today. It’s Jesus or Hell my friend.
John Hagee is a false prophet, who ought to be critiquing the Jews along with the Arabs.
Islamic Muslims Had Nothing to Do With 9/11
John Hagee is brainwashed! The 9/11 attacks were carried out by Saudi Arabians (video) working in conjunction with the Bush Administration. Please watch the 2 hour free video by Alex Jones, 911: The Road to Tyranny. Also, The Truth and Lies of 911 video by former LAPD narcotics officer, Mike Ruppert. Here are hundreds of concrete evidences showing that 911 was carried out by the Illuminati (the elites), not Muslims. Please watch, Illuminazi 911 (Free 1:23 hour startling video by Anthony J. Hilder). It’s time for Americans to wake up, and stop listening to Zionist preachers who are as ignorant as can be concerning what is going on in the world today. Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4), and works through occult organizations such as Skull and Bones, Bohemian Grove, and Freemasonry to do his bidding, they are the willing servants of EVIL! Islam didn’t cause 911 in ANY WAY! If your pastor is continually praising the Jews, and criticizing the Arabs, then find another church where at least the pastor knows what he’s talking about. Nearly all Jews, like Arabs, have rejected Jesus Christ. God told Jeremiah not to pray anything good concerning Israel, because of their wickedness (Jeremiah 14:11). The same is true today. This includes America as well.
God is speaking to Jews everywhere today.
“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” -Acts 4:10-12
Just like today in social aid, the people receiving social aid they now cannot own major tangible property, real estate, so any of the people, priests receiving the old testament tithes they also could not own any major tangible, real estate properties.. but today the false priest, pastors who are demanding on receiving tithes they falsely also do want to still own a home… to enjoy the monetary rewards of both.. they are still equivalent of welfare cheats!!!!
It is obvious many persons who claim to be even Christians are still ignorant on what the New Testament actually says about the Jews.. the land of Israel
Too many fundamentals, professing Christians now falsely do that the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was prophesied in Scripture while there is no direct support of this in the New Testament Bible even still. Zionism, on the other hand, “is a secularist, largely atheistic ideology” that emerged in the late 19th century. God still does not require the human input to fulfill his own prophecies. Now too many Christian Zionists, extremists do falsely do now believe that in order to fulfill all of the Biblical prophecy, Israel must next conquer most of the Middle East. And anyone watched the mostly self centered, get richer TV evangelists such as a Pat Robertson or John Hagee and their distorted sermons scenarios involving the future “Rapture,” Jesus Christ and also Israel, should also quickly firstly now realize that these false prophets are not only fleecing, scaring their flock to give more money but falsely are into worshipping the false idol of Israel. .John Hagee pays himself over a million dollars a year in TAX FREE money while having several palaces to live in, like the $2.1 million 7,969-acre ranch outside Brackettville, Texas , with five lodges, including a “main lodge” and a gun locker.;Once considered a small marginal doctrine among evangelicals, the false dispensationalist theology of Christian Zionism has greatly escalated, ironically falsely with the help of jess, Messianic Jews, Judaizers and many others too. The reality still is that the parable of the vineyard (Matt 21:33-43) clearly shows that the Christian Church totally now rather succumbs all of the past promises made to Israel. Be careful about accepting anyone’s word about Christian Zionism do first read the Bible, New Testament for yourself and know the truth rather. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2008/07/29/the-2-promised-returns/
” Those who question the legitimacy of Israel’s actions are immediately labelled anti-Semitic by some quarters, effectively undermining the turn of phrase by using it in this context. We are right to question the state of Israel’s actions and I am not anti-Semitic for doing so. I think the religious fundamentalism exhibited by certain Zionist and Orthodox Jewish groups needs to be dealt with in a similar manner to Islamic fundamentalism, I don’t see the distinction between the two, both are equally repulsive. ” http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/even-as-to-the-promised-land/
