John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers in her sins, that ye receive not her plagues. For her sins have reached up to heaven and God hath remembered her iniquities. (Rev. 18:4-5)
The first act of Christian cults is to distort the Bible’s original, clear teaching in favor of the human, personal “revelations” or interpretations. These Cults may emphasize a few verses in Scripture that seem to support their beliefs but still falsely do deliberately ignore a vast host of valid scripture which don’t. The Book of Acts opens with the Christian’s duty to proclaim the good news of salvation first to Jews in Israel and then to the whole world. Yet Christian Zionism is falsely not concerned with evangelism to any of Jews. Christian Zionism is primarily falsely devoted to upholding the right of a nation of Christ-rejecting Jews to occupy Palestine. It is primarily a political, not evangelistic, movement. The apostle Paul said clearly that God’s blessing was promised not to a nation of Abraham’s physical, unbelieving descendants but only to one person, Jesus (Gal. 3:16, 19). In verse 29 he says as a result that all who believe in Jesus Christ -God are children of Abraham and will be the sole ones that receive his blessing. Jews cannot hope to find peace in a parcel of land in the Middle East; rather, peace for all men can only be found in Jesus Christ.
The Bible clearly says . . .for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen among even as they have of the Jews: who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins all way: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost. (1 Thess. 2:14-16)
“Not one verse in Scripture promises that unbelieving Jews can occupy God’s holy land in unbelief. Not one prophecy clearly says that God will allow an unbelieving nation of Jews into Palestine and convert them later. Christian Zionism twists a handful of verses, giving them a fleshly, materialistic, unconditional interpretation ignoring God’s spiritual terms of obedience “ WE still do need interpret Scripture in light of the one commandment of God that summarizes all other commandments, love for God and for all our neighbors.”
The prevailing version of American Christian Zionism, CHRISTIAN” ZIONISM IS A CULT, and their belief system that falsely even underwrites, supports the theft of Palestinian land and the ongoing false oppression of Palestinian people, falsely escalates, helps create the conditions for an explosion of violence, and the violation of universal human rights. In all of these,. Christian Zionism as it currently stands is sinful and produces more sin. Cults do not produce fruits of wisdom, love, righteousness and justice but lead their followers into service of evil. “ “Jesus, as a prophet and our Lord and Savior, also had already prophesied that Jerusalem would be destroyed because they still did not know the practices that make for peace.” “As people who live under the divine authority of Holy Scripture, faithful disciples of our Lord, Jesus Christ, we believe that it is important that we carefully examine and, when necessary, critique, the teaching of any movement that claims to speak on Christ’s behalf when there is evidence that such teaching is negatively impacting the lives of our neighbors.”
Christian Zionism” is used to refer to the beliefs that many Christian conservatives have which insist that the state of Israel be supported at all costs because this is a necessary condition for the return of Jesus Christ. Christian Zionism makes Christians the servants of wicked men. Taught to bless Israel no matter what, Christians become callous and depraved toward the Arabs, whom God loves as much as Jews. It “creates a false image of Christianity, one that is militant, western, and Zionist.”
What precedent exists in Scripture to falsely support, hold up 17 million non-Christian Jews today as beyond criticism? None! Scripture contains no example of exalting even one righteous Jew or Gentile beyond reproof! Christian Zionism thus not only flagrantly omits Scripture it doesn’t like; it creates a false obligation to bless the wicked just because they are Jewish. This is a perverse, even a racist, violation of the commandment in the book of James not to show favoritism to persons. This is a spiritual perversion. God does even now hates it.
“The New Testament describes Christ-rejecting Jews as dry, withered, castaway branches, devoid of special covenant protection. Jesus affirmed such withered branches, both Jew and Gentile, are “burned” by God (John 15:5-6). He said those who say they are Jews but reject Him are not true Jews at all (Rev. 3:9). Paul says such “children of the flesh” are not the seed of Abraham (Rom. 9:6-8) but are “broken off” (Rom. 11:19).”
All Jews who reject Christ are liars (Rev. 3:9) and are “enemies of the gospel” (Rom. 11:28)—and Christians should “beware of the leaven” (teachings) of modern Judaism (Mark 8:5) Jews of Israel Talmudic Judaism are mostly evil and corruptive and therefore even now really cannot possibly beany longer God’s chosen people. Christian Zionists feel falsely obligated to protect even the vilest supremacist Jews of which there are much much too many from investigation, criticism, or exposure
John 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.
Christian Zionists love to play and replay Ps. 122:6: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” Yet you will never hear from their lips that Christ calls Jerusalem “Sodom and Egypt where our Lord was crucified” (Rev. 3:9), But Israel is still portrayed more than 80 times in the Old Testament as the “mother” of spiritual adultery in the world. The whole book of Hosea and much of Ezekiel dramatize this unique distinction
Christian Zionists love to quote passages describing the Jews’ special covenant, such as Genesis 12:1, 14-15, 15:18, 22:17. They falsely do infer that God wants Jewish safety and blessing as a top world priority and falsely claim these verses grant Jews, in any moral condition, perpetual rights to occupy Palestine. This is hardly what the Bible teaches. God says Jews inherited covenantal rights only because of Abraham’s obedience, an obedience they must duplicate in order to also inherit (Gen. 18:19, 26:4-5). This condition is clearly present in Deuteronomy 7:12 and 28:1-2:
if ye harken to these judgments and keep and do them. . .the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which He swore unto thy fathers.
if thou shalt harken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God to observe and do all His commandments…all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou but harken unto the voice of the Lord… (see also Hebrews 8:8,9)
There are dozens of clearest warnings to the ancient Hebrews that they cannot enter the land except in obedience and that if they are rebellious God will throw them out? Or that, once in exile, they can never come back except they obey? Here are only several:
[if you shall corrupt yourselves]…I call heaven and earth to witness against you that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land . . .and the Lord shall scatter you among the nations… (Deut. 4:25-27).
[Conversely, when exiled Jews] return to the Lord thy God. . .the Lord thy God will turn their captivity. . .and gather them from all the nations. . . (Deut. 30:1-3)
““Christian Zionism” is not authentic Christianity. It is devoted to a single monstrous heresy: that wicked Jews can reoccupy God’s holy land, a region of the earth originally set aside by Him to signify heaven. It rejects God’s command that His church not be unequally yoked with one of the vilest, most arrogant and oppressive systems of all time. “
And Galatians 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.
Galatians 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 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. And if ye be Christ?s, then are ye Abraham?s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Both the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Synod of the Reformed Church of America have taken stands against this movement called Christian Zionism
Why should Christians involve themselves with the deeds of a Jewish people who are still the “enemies” of the cross, blinded by God and in a state of curse? What Paul had now also taught us all was that ‘Jew’ , Jewish Nation didn’t mean anything to God over anyone else. Even John the Baptist told the priests not to puff themselves up by invoking the name of Abraham, because God could make children of Abraham from stones! The promises were broken by the people, not by God. God is fulfilling all his promises to the true faithful of Israel today, The Christians. And they are all who have accepted Jesus as Messiah, whether Jewish by race or non-Jewish. Israel is more than a plot of land, it is a people of God- true Christians. .
