This time, in my opinion, you hit the nail on the head. Paul accomplished nothing in Athens and never will. It’s Jerusalem. Prayer is Jerusalem. I sometimes think, and it’s just me, that what happened on the road to Damascus happened because someone prayed for Paul, maybe even someone he prosecuted. He was a smart guy already, but smart just doesn’t cut it. Good comment.
For Hagee and other evangelicals, God has been bringing about the end of days, one step at a time. Even the Holocaust, Hagee once claimed, was part of God’s plan to drive surviving Jews out of Europe toward Palestine. (The remarks led Arizona Sen. John McCain to reject Hagee’s 2008 presidential endorsement.) Yet Hagee’s Holocaust remarks were part of a larger Christian Zionist worldview that sees modern Israel as part of divine destiny. In this belief, God’s will made Israel, and Christians now must protect that covenant and keep Jerusalem “united” under Israel’s control, in order for Jesus to return to earth. In his book “Jerusalem Countdown,” which sold more than 700,000 copies, Hagee also pushed for a confrontation with Iran to hasten global conflagration and Christ’s return. “From this moment forward, for the rest of our lives, until Christ comes, Jerusalem is the center of the universe,” Hagee declared from the pulpit.
The Right to Resist Evil Leaders The Christian History – It’s always amusing when pretend Christians takes a whack at interpreting the Bible. Oddly enough, they almost always to try and discredit what the Bible says. This is another example of that taking place in one of the Corporate Media’s (Satan’s Mouthpiece) favorite games: Let’s try and discredit Romans 13 so we can rebel!
And so, my brothers and sisters! Your tax dollars no longer fund a U.S. policy that at least gives lip service to a fair solution of an age-old conflict and a Palestinian state of its own. One, by the way, that would immeasurably ease tensions in the most volatile corner of the planet, help keep American soldiers out of harm’s way and reduce terror attacks on innocent citizens. Instead, we are privileging the foot soldiers in a new holy war—a war in which those of us who aren’t among the believers will end up in a lake of fire.
Please read Revelation chapters 19-21! It has been made very clear in the Bible! It is not unclear. There will be "a literal thousand-year reign of Christ on earth." It is only unclear if you do not believe the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Revelation 1:1, see also Zechariah 14:3-11, 16-19). It is also not unclear that the white throne judgment and new heaven and earth come after this thousand years (Revelation 20:7-21:1).
With eloquent writers such as Hal Lindsey backing this viewpoint, talk of the Rapture became very popular in the late 1970s. However the expansion of these ideas went through a lull in the 1980s as a rediscovered ‘Kingdom’ emphasis took hold. Then in 1995, LaHaye published the first book in his Left Behind series. This was probably the biggest boost to the dispensationalist movement since the arrival of the Scofield Reference Bible in 1909 (which effectively served as the manual for Dispensationalim through the 20th Century).
American evangelicals have widely viewed Israel’s existence and progress over the last century as evidence of a divine plan according to scripture. Following the tradition of Genesis 12:3, Hagee’s followers believe that “Christians should bless and comfort Israel and the Jewish people” according to the brochure handed to me as I entered the church.
“You will be remembered 100 years from now not about the fake news attacks, not about the Russians hacking our computers. They will remember that you declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Hagee exclaimed to Trump. “Now is the set time to honor Israel and God will bless you and scatter your enemies.” President Trump apparently agreed. “He pointed his finger at me just like this, and said ‘Other presidents have promised you and failed you, but I will not fail you,’” Hagee recalled. The embassy opened in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.
A massive, Hezbollah-inspired protest involving tens of thousands of Lebanese and Palestinians occurred in Beirut shortly after Trump announced he would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. The protesters could be heard chanting that America was “the Great Satan” and Israel “the little Satan”. The Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah gave a speech at the rally […]
For the unbelievers out there, there are many false denominations and people who claim to be Christians that do not believe the Bible. The vast majority are very easy to identify to anyone who knows the Bible. For instance the Bible clearly teaches that whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved (Rom. 10:13) meaning salvation is by faith alone. Most Christians do not believe this even when they say they do believe it… ask them if a person can live however they want and still be saved and most will say “of course not”… betraying the fact they are still trusting in their own righteousness to save them rather than the finished work of Jesus Christ. (The word ” repent” that gets thrown around so often comes from the same root word we get “pensive” from, thus “re-pent” means to “re-think”.)
After joining a nascent alliance between American evangelicals and the Israeli Right in the late 1970s, Hagee has become perhaps the most prominent Christian Zionist in the world, and simultaneously, a harbinger of his movement’s waning strength. The historical and political undercurrents of the evangelical and Christian Zionist movements make Hagee one of the most underrated political figures in American life. His brand, advocacy for Israel, and compelling style support his influence on a movement that feels under attack.
Pretribulational premillennialism (an eschatological position associated with the theological school known as dispensationalism) argues that there will be a tribulation period in which many individuals will be saved, including large numbers of Jewish people, though they will not be part of the church, since Christ will have already come for His church before the Tribulation. (Information about Hagee from other sources reveals he seriously differs with the vast majority of dispensational teachers because he believes that Jewish people do not need to be saved, since they are under a different covenant.) Following the seven-year Tribulation, Christ will return to execute judgment on the enemies of God, afterwards setting up His kingdom on earth, which will last a millennium. Hagee hopes that his book will provide guidance for these people left behind — first, to bring them to salvation and, second, to give them hope.
In the 1970s, the Christian Zionists’ alliance with Israeli political figures solidified. Prime Minister Menachem Begin developed a close relationship with Jerry Falwell. He invited Falwell to Israel in a private jet and later made him the first non-Jew to receive the Jabotinsky medal, an award also given to the late Holocaust survivor and writer Elie Wiesel. The Begin-Falwell connection did not create the Christian Zionist movement, but it energized the movement’s bench of preachers and activists to organize in defense of Israel. Pastor Hagee’s view of Israel coalesced after his first visit in 1976, only one year after he was nearly ousted from his church for divorcing his first wife.
Reid’s comments went viral. It became a rallying cry for the right. Protesters mused: So we are domestic terrorists for protesting a heavy-handed government that is taking away constitutional freedoms—but when Maj. Nidal Hasan actually murdered 13 people at Fort Hood army base, that was just “workplace violence”? To many protesters, Reid’s comments seemed to confirm their worst suspicions.
Those who are being called out of “organized religion” are being called out to obey YHWH’s word, not just study it. Shema does not translate well to English. When you do the Passover, not the “Rabbinic” but the biblical way, followed by 7 days of getting the leaven of man made doctrines and keeping His high days, YHWH’s Spirit will teach and transform you. When YHWH’s begotten said that we should let no man be our teacher he had a reason. If you are in a covenant relationship with Him you have access to Him, so why ask me or anyone else when you can ask Him directly. Shalom Aleikhem.
First of all, the groups you mentioned, all follow false doctrine. The Jehova’s witnesses, the Mormons the new age group that you said could “teach me”, all follow distorted or twisted doctrine that contradicts the word of God. The book of Mormon, and the new world translation of the Holy scriptures (Jehovas witnesses) are both contradicting to the Bible. Even Judaism teaches that Jesus Christ is not the Messiah, which is the only way to heaven (John 14:6, John 11:25-26, Acts 4:10-12, just to name a few. seek more for yourself). I do not think it is best to associate or get taught by people who follow false doctrines that contradict what God already said. The Bible tells us this will happen, and that they are doctrines of devils (1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Timothy 4:3). We are to preach only from the word of God and follow only Him (Deuteronomy 13:4, Galatians 1:6-12, 2 Corinthians 11:4). So yes to answer your question, any person who teaches against the Bible is a false teacher and should be accursed (Galatians 1:8). If you do not believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, THEN YOU HAVE NO SALVATION. I know you said you didn’t like the fact that I referenced scripture earlier, but it is the only governing authority that abides over us all. So I urge you to please, look up these scriptures and try to really study God’s word. It will help you find truth brother. God’s word is truth (John 17:17). God bless. Please read this last scripture Louis, it goes perfectly with what were talking about!
This is a dramatic statement that categorically says that this is the last tetrad and there won’t be any more sequences of four blood moons in the Twenty-First Century after the 2014-2015 series. Unfortunately, this statement is completely untrue. There will be many more tetrad events during this century—in fact a total of six—and the complete list of lunar eclipse events can be found at this page of Wikipedia for reference. Look for full lunar eclipses in the list and for four of them in a row, which is a tetrad. What is true is that there won’t be any more tetrads that fall on Jewish holidays, because this is in fact extremely rare. John Hagee and other authors who have written about these blood moons have made huge amounts of money off books and appearances (Hagee alone has sold over 1 million copies of his book). Unfortunately, Hagee also has claimed to be the first to decode the blood moons signs, but he actually found out about the events and was taught by Mark Biltz during 2008.
The shadow of the coming black horse is hovering over America! Listen to my sermon series on this, as I give you very in-depth research on how much U.S. farm land has been purchased by shadow corporations hiding their true identities. China has purchased 2% or more of the following states’ farm land: Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Maine, Michigan. And this is just the tip of the ice berg. I don’t have time to go into detail in this article, but listen to the sermon series and it gives you a much better picture of how quickly we could sink into worldwide famine.
I do not trust John Hagee for a second. He is a judiazer. He stated in his book In Defense of Israel, that Jews DO NOT NEED Jesus to be saved. John has a history of date setting. In Jerusalem countdown, (actually it was live on a speaker tour in support of that book) He stated that his secret contacts atthe pentegon told him we will be at war with Iran by March. Of 2007! Wrong.
Bottom line: The term Blood Moon in Biblical prophecy appears to have been popularized by two Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee. They used the term to apply to the full moons of the 2014-2015 lunar tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, each separated by six lunar months, with no partial lunar eclipses in between. Nowadays, it seems, the term Blood Moon is being used for any and all total lunar eclipses.
However, it is not just the occurrence or presence of blood moons in general that makes them important signs. There have been other recent tetrads that didn’t correlate to any major events in the world or to Jewish feast days or events associated with Israel (i.e., the tetrad of 2003-2004 and the tetrad of 1985-1986), so we must be careful not to ascribe special significance to every tetrad of full moon eclipses. In addition, we should remember that there are no verses in the Bible that associate blood moon tetrads with any definite prophetic signals related to Israel, so these events are not strictly related to End Times prophecies.
Knowing that God is in control should make you rest easy when there are tough questions that our nation and our world are faced with every day. What will become of the United States? How will our new President respond to foreign aggression that seems to be mounting? How will our allies and foes respond? Will Iran attack Israel? Will Israel be ready for these attacks from their neighbors?
