Beware Of Zionist Heresy In The Churches

Genesis 12:1-3, 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: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” 

It was in today's world news that militants in Gaza said they had fired 130 rockets into Israel in response to an Israeli air raid which destroyed the al-Sharouk tower in Gaza City. The tower, which is the third tall building to be destroyed by air strikes this week, housed al-Aqsa TV, the station run by Hamas. Sadly, this type of hostility and bloodshed has existed for millenniums between the Jews and Arabs. The Middle East is ground zero for Bible prophecy today. Biblically, Israel is the center of the world. All eyes are upon Israel today!

I was making my daily social media rounds today. On Twitter I noticed a disturbing comment by Pastor Jared Young of the Clays Mill Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky. I am not attacking Brother Young. I am a big fan of their church, and I love and fully support Pastor Jeff Fugate. They are good and godly men. Albeit, I totally disagree with this statement Pastor Young made on Twitter today about Israel:

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem & Israel! #IStandWithIsrael 

Genesis 12:3, I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Psalms 122:6, Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

What saith the Scripture? Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” The Bible doesn't give manmade present-day Israel any special promise of divine protection from God. The bombing going on in Palestine today, whether for or against the Israeli government, has nothing to do with Bible prophecy. Israel today is no different than any other heathen nation.

Pastor Jared Young has bought into the deception of Zionism, a common misunderstanding of the meaning of Genesis 12:3. God's promise to bless those who bless Abraham, and curse those who curse Abraham, were made ONLY to Abraham. Yet, many preachers errantly teach that God promised to bless anyone to blesses any Jew, and to curse anyone who curses any Jew. Nothing could be further from the truth. What saith the Scripture? ...

Exodus 19:5-6, “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Clearly, God's promise of blessing to the Jew was CONDITIONED upon obedience. God's promise of blessing has always followed a line of faith in the Bible. There was never a time when unbelieving Jews were blessed of God. We see this with Esau. God did not bless wicked Esau as He did righteous Jacob. Pastor J. Vernon McGee (1904-1988) said it very well concerning present-day Israel. God blesses those who obey Him. It is the Christian believer, and not the biological or ethnic or cultural or national Jew, whom God blesses. Mark 9:42, “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.” Carefully notice that Jesus said the promise of God's favor is upon them who BELIEVE.

John the Baptist rebuked the Jews for thinking they had special rights and privilege with God. Matthew 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.” John the Baptist forever rebuked the idea that Jews are better than Gentiles, or that Jews have their own special covenant with God to get to Heaven (the garbage Evangelist John Hagee teaches). Jews must be BORN AGAIN, just like Gentiles (John 3:1-7).

God never promised to bless unsaved Jews, nor to bless those who bless them. God promises each INDIVIDUAL person the same covenant He made with Abraham in Genesis 12:3. Psalms 34:7, “The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” There is no promise in the Bible for God to bless a heathen nation like Israel today. The teaching that God will bless churches for blessing pagan Israel is of the Devil. Less than 3% of Israel's inhabitants today profess Christianity. Where did the unbiblical idea that God would bless a nation of unsaved Jews originate? It is a fabrication of Zionist heresy rooted in dispensational mumbo-jumbo. Read Deuteronomy chapter 28, to learn about God's promise to either bless or curse the Jews, conditioned upon obedience.

So, kindly said, Pastor Jared Young is teaching Zionist heresy. I didn't write this blog to refute Pastor Young, but to refute Zionism. If Israel were to be nuked off the earth tomorrow, it would be 100% in line with Luke 21:24. Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” The Times Of The Gentiles will end (be fulfilled) when Jesus returns at His Second Coming. Until then, Israel is a sitting duck during hunting season! Hosea 3:4-5 teaches that only when the Jews repent and return to God, will the Lord regather Israel. Many of the Jews have returned to the land of Palestine, but they have not yet returned to God.
