The Dangers of Christian Zionism: a Self Fulfilling Prophecy

This modern view of the end times has succeeded in tying together various strands of false doctrine, into a package of Biblical untruths that could not only lead to the loss of salvation by the deceived, but to a catastrophic series of wars. The basic tenements of Christian Zionism, derived from the false doctrine of Dispensationalism and a host of modern day delusional end time false prophets, are:

1. God has two separate covenants of Salvation, one for the Church and one for the Jews, and that all His dealings with each are separate and distinct.
Joh 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.The above scripture makes it clear that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to be saved, as do several others:

Act 4:10 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.
Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Act 4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

As far as all God’s dealings with the Jews and the Church being separate and distinct, this too is easily refuted by the Scriptures:

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Here God tells the serpent (Devil) that the seed of the woman, Jesus Christ, will conquer his seed, and in the scriptures below, God tells Abraham that all the families of the earth will be blessed through his seed, and Jesus confirms that Abraham knew what God meant, he had foreseen the day of the Messiah coming and was glad:

Gen 12:3 … and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Joh 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
God’s dealings with the Church and the Children of Israel are not separate and distinct, but His purpose for Abraham and His purpose for His Church are the same:

Gen 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
God’s unchanging desire for His Chosen People, whether they are Jew or Gentile, is the same from Genesis to the Book of Revelation. To be separate from the world and to look forward to a Kingdom to come:

Mat 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
2. That God wants to reestablish the Jews, an unsaved people who believe that they alone are “God’s Chosen People”, and that’s why they have a right to the land of Israel, regardless of their unbelief, which caused the loss of their homeland in the first place.
Belief in Christ is a requirement to continue on as part of God’s chosen people, or the Israel of God, as the Apostle Peter makes clear to the Jews:

Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
Act 3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

Peter refers to the punishment God stated in the Old Testament or Covenant for abominable acts:

Lev 18:29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
And the prophet Daniel speaks of the abominations that caused the Jews, their Temple and their city to become desolate:

Dan 9:27 … and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
The he mentioned in Daniel 9:27 is not an antichrist figure, as so many Zionists believe, but Jesus Christ. This is confirmed by the following scriptures:

Luk 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
Luk 21:21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.
Jesus like Daniel, tells the Jews that they, and their Temple and City, are going to be destroyed, as a result of their abominable actions. There is no mystery as to why:

Mat 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Mat 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
Mat 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
Mat 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Having clearly foretold their destruction, He finishes by telling them the way back to the Grace of God, by accepting that He came as their Messiah, in His Father’s Name. Paul also tells the unbelieving Jews the way back into God’s Grace:

Rom 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
Jews and Gentiles grafted into an Olive Tree, which represents the Israel of God, the Chosen people, God’s chosen people:

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1Pe 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Col 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

Once again, because it is a clear and definite rebuke of today’s inhabitants of Israel, in their fallen, unbelieving and disobedient state cannot claim the title of God’s chosen people, as Peter told them directly:

Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
Act 3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

And that prophet mentioned by Moses is clearly and inarguably Jesus Christ and the Jews did NOT listen to Him, and they have been destroyed from among God’s People as promised.

In closing out section 2 of the article, I’ll use an analogy to describe today’s Zionists:

The Zionists remind me of children whose parents have promised them a reward IF they behave. For example, if you’re good and clean your rooms and do your homework we’ll take you out to get an ice cream cone. Well, their rooms are a mess, they didn’t do their homework, they didn’t remember that part, but they sure remembered that Mom and Dad promised them an ice cream cone! The Zionists remember the part in the Bible where God promised the land to Abraham’s Seed, but they completely ignore the warnings found in Deuteronomy and Leviticus about being cast out of the promised land for disobedience/unbelief! They still refuse to do their homework, or clean their rooms and when Mom and Dad aren’t home they’re going to sneak out and steal the ice cream cones from the kids next door!

Deu 28:58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD …
Deu 28:63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
Deu 28:64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
3. That Christians should support the unsaved Jews financially, politically and militarily to be blessed by God.
If you’ve been reading so far, you should already know this is false, but let’s add some more scriptures to back up this conclusion:

Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee …

God is here speaking to Abraham, an individual, not a group of unbelieving Jews thousands of years later. As we’ve shown above, unbelieving Jews are no longer part of God’s chosen people, but are cut off (the Bible uses the harsher term destroyed in Acts 3:23) from among His people until they repent and believe in Jesus Christ. To further amplify this, Paul tells us the true seed of Abraham is Jesus!

Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
And John the Baptist says the birthright as Abraham’s physical descendents means little, while remaining unbelieving and unrepentant:

Mat 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
Mat 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Apart from Jesus you can NOT bear good fruit:

Joh 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Joh 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Joh 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
Joh 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
Joh 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Joh 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

4. If Christians don’t support the unsaved Jews then God will curse the nations they live in with hurricanes, earthquakes, draught, famine, etc.
Not only should Christians not support the unbelievers, but they should have nothing to do with them other than preaching the Gospel:

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. …
Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
Mat 10:15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
Christian Zionists, does it sound like Jesus is going to punish those who don’t support the man-made state of Israel? No, of course not, it sounds like He is going to punish the unbelievers who rejected Him!

2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
To conclude these two sections, if you truly want to bless the Jews than preach the Gospel to them, do NOT encourage their continued rebellion against God!

6. Jesus Christ will quietly appear and “Rapture” out of the world His “Church”, afterwards, an Antichrist figure will lead physical Israel into rebuilding the Temple, reinstituting animal sacrifices and cause a peace treaty to be signed between physical Israel and her enemies.
From the correct interpretation of Daniel 9:27 above we learn that while this verse is used incorrectly by Zionists to support a false belief in a Third Temple, there is no Biblical evidence to support this. Indeed for a Christian to believe in, and worse yet, support the unsaved Jews in building a Third Temple is mind-boggling! A Temple … animal sacrifices? For what? Haven’t you read that believers are the true Temple of God?

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

That God doesn’t accept animal sacrifices, that Jesus Christ is the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world? There is no need for a Third Temple, for Jews to build one is just storing up further wrath upon themselves, and for Christians to support this is proof that they are under strong delusion:

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
Heb 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
Heb 10:3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
Heb 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
… Heb 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
Heb 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

The New Covenant, or second, is sanctified through the blood of Christ, the first through the blood of animals, is taken away, or made of no effect by the greater Covenant between God and believers in Christ. Clearly, animal sacrifices are useless to an unbeliever.

Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
7. In the midst of a prophetic week, which is 7 years, believed by the Zionists to be Daniel’s 70th week, the Antichrist will turn on physical Israel, declare himself to be God, desecrate the Temple and lead the world in attacking Israel. Only a miraculous intervention by Jesus Christ, apparently His 3rd coming, will save them, and thus all Israel will be saved, or so they believe.
We’ve proven from the scriptures that the above scenario centered on a third temple isn’t Biblical, but, it doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen. This is where the self-fulfilling prophecy comes in. Combining Biblical truths with the Zionist fables we can arrive at a possible situation where the Jews have continued on their way to ethnically cleansing their “land”. Thousands upon thousands of Arab Christians and Muslims who lived there peacefully with all before the Zionists came to Palestine, are murdered and or displaced into other countries. Israel, fully backed by the U.S. militarily and politically and financially continues on its path to create ersatz Israel, or greater Israel. The current situation, where the U.S. and Israel and their allies deny the right to Iran to create nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, their right as a signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and increase hostilities with them to a point where full scale violence erupts over it. Either Israel or the U.S., or both, attack Iran under the guise of destroying their nuclear capabilities, causing horrendous civilian casualties and Iran retaliates by trying to block the straights of Hormuz to cut off oil supplies to the west, and conducting offensives into Iraq to go after the U.S. forces permanently stationed there. The world’s economy teeters on the brink of destruction because there’s no energy to do work. The U.S. and Israel and their allies respond by using “tactical nukes“ to stop the “Islamofascists” from destroying the world‘s economy by blocking and or destroying the world’s oil supplies.

During this time of war, a man claiming to be a Jew, takes control of “Israel” and destroys the Mosque on the Temple mount, and they begin rebuilding the Temple. “Israel” now has physical borders from the Mediterranean to Iran and they and their allies continue to slaughter Muslims as they march across to China’s border, in an attempt to isolate Russia and China. Now the Temple has been rebuilt and animal sacrifices have been reinstituted, the unsaved Jews believe they are saved and they feel like they’re on top of the world:

Meanwhile, the Christian Zionists are expecting to be raptured out at any minute. Of course, the long sought after “Rapture” doesn’t happen. During this time anyone who protests against the Zionist take over in the middle east is taken into custody. Dissenting voices in the Church are silenced and Zionism becomes the world’s official religion.

As a result of not being raptured “Christians” around the world begin to look at the charismatic leader in “Israel”, he, being aided by the enemy, the devil, begins to do false signs and lying wonders, perhaps stages his own death and resurrection and fools many “Christians” and “Jews” into following Him as their Messiah:

Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

And in the “Churches” he tells the people through his false prophets that they have to receive the mark of the “lord” to save them from the coming destruction. Falsely referring to:

Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
But, in actuality they are taking the Mark of the Beast, thus dooming themselves to the Lake of Fire:

Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
During all this time, the faithful remnant, the true Israel of God, both Jews and Gentiles, but now one in Christ, were protected and waited for their Lord to come for them. They continuously sought after the truth and walked after the Spirit, not the flesh. They didn’t worship physical Israel or their own countries, they were strangers to this world. They didn’t store up treasures on earth and they awaited their treasures to come:

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Rev 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death …
Rev 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Perhaps some of you reading believe the above scenario to be impossible, you’d never fall for that. Think again, open your eyes and see how far you’ve fallen away already:

You’ve tried to combine your allegiance to both God and Country despite being told from the Bible that it cannot be done:

Luk 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
You’ve made idols out of your country, your churches, your money and everything else that stands in the way of living your lives in accordance with the true Gospel.

Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.

Most of the Church of Jesus Christ has fallen away and they’ve lost, or never had, a love for the truth and in so doing they’ve turned to fables and God will treat them accordingly:

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God …
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Instead of studying your Bibles and searching for and praying for the truth to be revealed to you, you paid professionals to tell you what you wanted to hear. To encourage your self righteousness as you increased your bank accounts. Because of these fables you turned the other way while your country and “Israel” slaughtered millions around the world. You didn’t speak up, even if you wanted to, because you and your “pastors” were not free to, you were incorporated servants of the government (501c3 incorporated institutions of the U.S. government) because your church leaders had agreed to this, so as to not have to pay taxes on their filthy lucre! You didn’t realize that Zionism, and Prosperity doctrines, and Rapture Doctrines were all false. You listened to the false prophets, you listened to the wolves in sheep’s clothing, because you wanted to. “Just make me feel good”, you said, “God bless America”, you said, you talked the talk, you knew your church speak well. You didn’t walk the walk though, you didn’t walk after the spirit though. Encouraged by your false prophets you walked after the flesh and reaped the rewards of it:

Rom 8:13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

It doesn’t have to be that way though, you don’t have to suffer a fate worse than death, you don’t have to go through that. God is not willing that any should perish, Amen?

It isn’t God who wants all these things to come against you. God isn’t forcing the Zionists to rebel against Him. The truth is plain for all to see, it is the wicked desires of your own hearts that have brought you to a condition of apostasy, of rebellion and twisting the Holy Scriptures to justify getting what you want. It’s not the Zionists who rule the world, it’s the rich men of the earth that oppress us, who cheat us, who turn us against each other, they, guided by their master, Satan. They simply use the natural fleshly desires to get us to do what they want:

Jas 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
Jas 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
Jas 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Jas 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
Jas 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.
The end times scenario described above doesn’t have to happen, if it does become a self fulfilling prophecy, it will happen because the rich men of the earth will use the desires of the wicked to cause it to happen. Neither do you have to go through it and through a fate worse than death, repent now, this very minute, while there’s still time:

Rev 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee …
Rev 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
Rev 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
You’ll have to change though, you’ll have to begin to love the truth and seek it with your whole heart. Jesus Christ is the way, the life and the truth, and to love Him and obey Him is the way to salvation.
