The Israel Bandwagon

These posts are meant to shed light on the fact that there is much deception and propaganda that Christians believe about Israel. I do not believe in this blind support that Christians seems to have for this state of Israel. There are many important facts that are being left out.  Please do not jump to conclusions that I am anti Jew or against “Israel” without reading my entire posts, for you will see this is not the case at all. I hope these postings will help people define just what true “Israel” really is.

There are many churches that spend a lot of time and energy supporting Israel, some even making it a center point of their church. People pray for Israel, wave the flag and vote for people who politically support Israel.   I have seen too much ignorance in this area with the church blindly jumping on the support Israel bandwagon.  Christians seem to think the state of Israel is the center of the universe.  They think Israel can do no wrong, and that you need to support them at all costs because if you don’t, well you are not being a good Christian. It appears from my past post that I can lose the point in my writing. I am doing my best so if this post happens to be not as “Kosher” as you like try to see my main points.  This is not a column in some established news paper but my blog where I post my mind. I do not have an editor or even time to get rid of every spelling error so have some grace please.

My Initial post on Israel created quite a stir and made some people very unhappy.  I don’t claim to be an expert in Middle East affairs or the State of Israel, but I think I made some very valid points in my posts. From the responses I got it appears that many people have fallen for the Zionist propaganda thrown out into the Christian world.  I deleted the first part of my post because I feel I may have confused a few facts and wanted to make it clearer.

ISRAEL

I want to make it clear what my points on Israel really are since people are confused.

-The “State” of Israel is a political entity created by the people trying to create a world government and is not true Israel, the people.  The Israeli flag has nothing to do with Jews but is an occult symbol used by the Jewish Kabbalah mystics.

– This controlled state of Israel is guilty of war crimes and are the aggressors in the Arab Israel conflict. The picture is much bigger than that statement both sides are guilty of aggression, but the hostility is fueled from a very small minority on each side. Arab casualties far out wiegh the Israeli casualties. Israel’s “retaliations” are completely unjustified. There is a much bigger plan going on behind the scenes.

– True Israel, as for the future promises of the bible is not this “state” of Israel or even the race of Jews but rather for the Believing Jews and Gentiles. The unbelieving Jews and gentiles where always cut off and share no inheritance in the eternal kingdom.

STATE VS NATION

The STATE of Israel we see today is not what we think it is.  Although it may be the precursor to the promise this is not the promise.  The Israeli government is not run by believers in Jesus or even Orthodox Jews, the fact is Israel is run by Zionists.  Zionists are not Jews, they are Kabbalah Mystics who are part of the NWO trying to create a global government.  They created this state to manipulate world politics for their own agenda.  It is important to understand this because the State of Israel’s Allies are all run by the same people.  America supports Israel because they know the Israeli government is run by the same shadow government they are run by.  The UN, America and the Western World care nothing for Orthodox Jews or Jewish people, but only their own agenda.  Read my other post to see what I think is really happening behind the scenes.

-The Israeli flag proves all of the above.  The star of David has nothing to do with Orthodox Jews but rather is an occult symbol used by the Zionist.  See my other post for more information.

-Many Torah keeping Jews do not support the State of Israel and are opposed to Zionism.

This present Government of Israel and the Israeli army is not being obedient to God or his laws, they are in fact out of covenant.  Unbelieving, disobedient Israel never pleased God and was ALWAYS cut off and never shared in any promise.  As stated in my last post, Israel is guilty of great crimes against humanity.  The suffering of the Arabs is always overlooked.

The land that is now the state of Israel was previously settled by Arabs for hundreds of years.  There were some Jews that lived with the Arabs in PEACE.  They were not enemies.  It wasn’t until the Zionists started pushing their agenda that aggression started taking place.  Prior to 1948 there was much debate to how the land would be divided.  From my research it was always a select group of people that would not accept the agreements and stirred up hatred and anger.  One of the first Arab aggressions against Israel was the Nebi Musa Riots of 1920.  In all, four to six Jews and four Arabs were killed and over 200 Jews were wounded.  A large amount of Jewish property was burned or pillaged.  Synagogues and religious schools were torched and Torah books were desecrated.  This all was staged by a small group of people and instigated by 2 men,  Haj Amin al Husseini and Aref el Aref, editor of the newspaper “Southern Syria.”  People must realize that all this was staged by the governments, military and the shadow governments.  The Arab people and Jewish people have little say in these matters.  I’m sure if you removed all these political manipulators from the equations, the regular Arabs and Jews could have worked out an agreement on their own a long time ago.  If you don’t believe me that Israel is the perpetrator and the Arabs are the victims just check out these stats.

In 2005 6 Israeli soldiers died from terrorism.  Yet 30 died from suicide!

I agree that racism against Jews is wrong and it unfortunately does happen.  But I know the Zionists  have exploited this for their own agenda and make it out to be much bigger than it really is.  It is always a small group of people that hate the Jews and then stir up the crowds to hate them for no good reason.  WW2 affected everybody and you will always hear of the 6 million Jews that died.  This is horrible but the Jews were not the biggest victims of WW2.  Why do we not hear of the 12-28 million Russians that were killed in WW2?  There are many problems with racism in the world and the Jews are just one of them.  Are the Jews the most persecuted people on the planet in modern history?  I can’t say I know the answer but I do ask – what about the many other people killed in genocide?  Pol Pot and Cambodia, the American backed genocide in East Timor.   Or what about the millions of African and Chinese slaves that helped build the West?  I’m just trying to put a perspective on the fact that the Jews are not the leading victims of modern day history.  “Anti-Semitism” is being used as a tool to further the Zionist agenda.  As soon as someone says anything against what they do or what the State of Israel does, you are automatically “Anti-Semitic”.  They have many things they can do to you once they convince people you are “Anti-Semitic”.

FUTURE PROMISES FOR ISRAEL

There are many promises in the bible in reference to Israel, God’s Children, his Elect and Chosen people.  One of the biggest misconceptions in all of this is that people are led to believe that this is all in reference to the race of Jews being God’s chosen, elect, children and inheritors of all future promises.  There are people that try and separate the promises for the church and Israel as being different.  In regards to these promises I am going to separate different classes of people that can get confused into the same:

The Race of Jews – people with blood heritage.
Orthodox Jews – Ones who keep the old covenant and are obedient to Torah and old traditions. They do not accept the new covenant with Jesus as the Messiah.
Messianic Jews –  Jews who accept the new covenant and Jesus as the Messiah.
Non practicing Jews –  Jews that don’t keep anything but are only Jews by blood.
Zionists – Some of these are of Jewish blood but possibly not all of them. They are a political group that is part of the NWO that are steeped in the Occult.
Christians – Those who believe in the new Covenant through Jesus.

The only ones that are not “Jewish” in the above group are the “Christians” or I would rather say believers in Jesus.  Now in regards to the bible, future prophecy that talks about God’s chosen, His elect and children.  These are the ones who are going to inherit the eternal Kingdom.  But who from the above group is actually the “Chosen” and “Elect”?

Let’s take a look at the history of Israel.

Israel was birthed out of a promise to Abraham to make him a great nation(Genesis 12:2-3).  It was his seed that would bring the Messiah to save the world.  There were 12 Tribes of Israel that came from Jacob.  It was through the Jews that the promise was preserved and the world was blessed.  Israel was divided a long time before Christ.  Judah is mainly the southern kingdom and the rest the northern.  The northern kingdom was scattered first and then the southern.  It was only the southern kingdom that came back to the land, the rest has been scattered across the face of the earth.  If being a Jew was a matter of blood and genetics than virtually anyone could be a Jew since people migrate and intermarry.  But I will bring up the point that it is impossible that God cares more about genetics than he does about the believing heart later.

A lot of prophecy in the bible talks about Israel, “The elect” and God’s “Chosen people”.  A lot of it has been fulfilled, but the bible also talks about a future time where all Israel will be gathered back together.  If you read the prophetic books esp Revelation you will hear a lot about God’s chosen people, those He is redeeming for himself.

People are trying to tell me that all these promises are for the Jews of present day and not Christians?  This is a real problem for me when people try to take the promises of the bible and say that the church is separate from Israel.  It cannot be true that all these promises in the bible are only for Jews just because they have Jewish blood and Jewish genetic code.  Even if they hate God himself and deny Jesus as Lord they receive the promises?  On the contrary, the bible says the opposite, the unbelieving Jews were always cut off.  It is quite clear that God does not care if you have Jewish blood, you enter the promises if you are a believer.   (Romans 2)

Romans 11

 17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the [h]rich root of the olive tree, 18 do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. 19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 20 Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; 21 for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. 22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?

Is it not clear that we are grafted in to believing Israel and share in the exact same promises?  Unbelieving Israel is cut off unless they believe.  Jesus was the final prophet to Israel and was rejected by most.  There is no special salvation for those with Jewish blood, if they don’t believe in Jesus they share the same fate as the rest of the unbelieving world.

Go read the book of Joel and you will see it is a very prophetic book.  It talks a lot of things to come in the age we are living in now and the end.  Here is a sample of the very last passage:

Judah Will Be Blessed

18 And in that day
The mountains will drip with [
j]sweet wine,
And the hills will flow with milk,
And all the brooks of Judah will flow with water;
And a spring will go out from the house of the Lord
To water the valley of [
k]Shittim.
19 Egypt will become a waste,
And Edom will become a desolate wilderness,
Because of the violence [
l]done to the sons of Judah,
In whose land they have shed innocent blood.
20 But Judah will be inhabited forever
And Jerusalem for all generations.
21 And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged,
For the Lord dwells in Zion.
 

If this passage is talking about the end, where is the church? The bible in most of it’s prophecy uses Hebrew words to describe everything and most of the end prophecy talks about Israel, Zion and Jerusalem.  If the church is not included in these promises than it appears his church, his bride is cast away and God only cares about ….Israel.  I think the correct view here is no replacement theology or not replacement theology but rather Hybrid Theology as described in Romans 11. God has a bigger plan for what his people are that goes beyond race, but his people the chosen children are those who believe, the original Jews who believe and the Gentiles who have been grafted in thus creating a Hybrid Israel. (Gentiles & Jews)

1 Peter 2:9
But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

Is peter talking about Jews only?  Or believers whether Jew or Greek?

It is clear to me to me that God’s chosen special people, His elect, the apple of His eye are not Jews alone, but those who follow him and believe in Jesus.  Jews were the chosen race in the Old Testament to bring about the Messiah, but then He gave them a new covenant with Jesus.  It did not forfeit all the old promises but rather it reinforced them.  They still have to obey God and His new plan with Jesus in order to receive those promises.  

Heb 8

A New Covenant

For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion sought for a second. For finding fault with them, He says,

“Behold, days are coming, says the Lord,
[
f]When I will effect a new covenant
With the house of Israel and with the house of Judah;
Not like the covenant which I made with their fathers
On the day when I took them by the hand
To lead them out of the land of Egypt;
For they did not continue in My covenant,
And I did not care for them, says the Lord.
10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
After those days, says the Lord:
[
g]I will put My laws into their minds,
And I will write them on their hearts.
And I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.
11 “And they shall not teach everyone his fellow citizen,
And everyone his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’
For all will know Me,
From [
h]the least to the greatest of them.
12 “For I will be merciful to their iniquities,
And I will remember their sins no more.”

13 [i]When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is [j]ready to disappear.

The same people that take certain promises and say that is for the Jew will they themselves take promises made to Jews and apply it to themselves.  Verses such as:

Joel 2:27-29

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

27 “Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am the Lord your God,
And there is no other;
And My people will never be put to shame.

The Promise of the Spirit

28 [a]It will come about after this
That I will pour out My Spirit on all [
b]mankind;
And your sons and daughters will prophesy,
Your old men will dream dreams,
Your young men will see visions.
29 “Even on the male and female servants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

 

It is clear that the promise is for believers whether Jew or Greek even though it was spoken to Israel.  So who is calling the shots to whether one verse is for Jews and the other for Christians??

The promises of God are for Israel, those who believe in Jesus.  We are Israel if we believe and even more, many of us probably have blood from the lost 10 tribes within us.  But what about the Jews today that keep OT law but reject Jesus?  The bible says Israel is not cast away and even a partial hardening has taken place.  I believe God cares about the physical Jews as well by blood and honors those who still keep his old covenant.  You can see they are blessed in how they live their lives.  I think God makes special effort to show them Jesus so they will believed and be saved.   But to the Jews that don’t keep the law or believe in Jesus, they are the same as any other heathen.  The bible is clear that keeping the law cannot bring salvation and the only way to God is through Jesus.  If Jews could be saved by keeping the law than that means I could choose not to believe in Jesus and keep the law and be saved.  That would than prove the bible to lie and say that there is another way to God than through Jesus.  Orthodox Jews are still blessed and have a purpose in what God is doing right now on the earth, as we can see in the Middle East.  Scripture does point to God having a bit of TLC towards the original chosen race over gentiles, just as the scripture says for the Jew first then for the Gentile, but in the end we will all the be the same if we believe the same.

In conclusion I include all “believers” in the new covenant part of True Israel whether Jew or Gentile.  I do not support this NWO controlled state as True Israel and do not support any politician because they say they support Israel.  There is so much that could be said on this topic, I’m sure I have left much out but I hope I made some concrete points for Christians to think about before they start blindly supporting the State of Israel.
