Well, guess what? Did you know John Hagee is divorced? He founded Cornerstone Church after divorcing his first wife, Martha Downing in 1975. The divorce was quite the scandal for congregants of Trinity Church, where he was minister at the time. He then remarried, getting hitched to Diana Castro, who was a congregant at Trinity and is still his current wife. 
People come to different conclusions about celebrating Halloween, particularly if they have young children or grandchildren to consider. For some people this holiday is a time for dress-up and candy; it is an opportunity for fun. Others express concern for their child's safety or for the emphasis that is often made on violence or horror at this time of year. Those who are interested in the right or wrong of the celebration may look at the holiday's origin in the occult and believe it should not be celebrated at all; they are aware that some groups celebrate Halloween as a tribute to Satan. On the other hand, others recognize that Halloween, the eve of "All Saints' Day" (November 1), is also associated with Martin Luther and the Reformation. They celebrate the religious freedoms won at that time in history. Since each of these perspectives contain truth, it is difficult to know how to respond.
Before your head explodes at the thought of yet another story about an End Times-inflamed preacher, consider this. Not only does Pastor Hagee preside over the mega-church, Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, but he also heads a multi-million-dollar medias empire. Not only is he a powerful political player within the Republican Party, but he has established significant political connections in Israel. The faithful have lapped up many of the more than 30 books he has written, including: "Earth's Final Moments," "From Daniel to Doomsday: The Countdown Has Begun," "Can America Survive?: 10 Prophetic Signs That We Are The Terminal Generation" and "Jerusalem Countdown," which was made into a not-very-well-received movie. I think you get the general themes of Hagee's oeuvre!
Pastor John Hagee The Four Horses Of The Apocalypse DVD. Neither heaven or hell has been presented to the American people through their churches and pastors in the last 35 years. Now the reality of hell is upon us. Use the Lord Jesus Christ as your saviour. These 4 Horses and their riders will soon ride across the stage of human history. John Hagee does a wonderful job of exposing the current events we are feeling today, with the Four Horseman of the apocalypse. From Obama, Israel, Nuclear iran, to China and Russia. It is written in the Bible and is now becoming reality. For those of you who are aware, this will help you see the big picture for what it really is, and how everything fits together. For those of you who have never been introduced to Gods word, this will help you understand how accurate the prophecy, that was written 2000 years ago, really is. Shocking for some and reasurring to others, John Hagee lays it all out for you to see in a remarkable 4 video series. Hagee’s support for Israel has brought him death threats.He has also incurred controversy for his comments based on religious beliefs regarding Islam, Catholicism, and homosexuality. America is turning her back on Israel, the Bible warns of this day. I gave you seven the exact similarities between the coming enterprises in the Bible and the Islamic Messiah.
Once the country became a religious free-for-all, celebrated for any and all pagan beliefs, it’s descent into overt paganism has been dizzying.  Some take comfort by believing this may present a “wake-up call” but they are only fooling themselves.  If the apostate church was capable of being woken, it would have occurred years ago–when these beliefs and practices first entered the church.  Not now, after years of comfortable acceptance.

Beginning of the End shows surprising restraint, avoiding extreme speculation and date-setting. Nonetheless, it does feed the fire of a popular but problematic style of newspaper eschatology that often distracts Christians from a more serious and profitable study of God’s Word. The biggest concern that this book raises for the body of Christ, however, is that it adds to the popularity of a man who in other places espouses such seriously errant views as positive confession, guaranteed prosperity, salvation for the Jews apart from faith in Christ, and utter condemnation for those who disagree with his dispensational view of the relationship between Israel and the church.
Bundy continued, “And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. – Joel 2:22-29.
In 2009, a Bexar County judge dismissed the case because ESI and Hagee agreed to arbitration. Since the results of arbitration are private and normally bound by non-disclosure agreements, it is unclear how the dispute ended. However, what the case makes clear are the growing business implications of Hagee’s advocacy for Israel. From its early days, his ministry worked to monetize its prominence with books, products like ESI’s, and even tallits (Jewish prayer shawls).

This passage details a very specific sequence of events culminating with the defense of Israel by God and their return to believing faith. This is emphasized as the final verse of the chapter stresses that whosoever calls on God’s name will be “delivered.” It is a time of salvation for the believing remnant of Israel. So why do we not see John Hagee or Mark Biltz mentioning the rest of the prophecies in Joel chapter 2? Why are they not talking about the mighty army that is going to ravage homes and destroy people in a manner never seen before? Why have they not mentioned these aspects and instead picking just one verse out of context? It is because they are not following Scripture but instead looking to the stars, NASA and Google for their prophetic interpretation.
The connection between Christians and Israel is the Bible. The Bible begins in Genesis 12:3 with God speaking to Abraham, “I will bless those that bless you and I will curse those who curse you.” You fast forward to the Psalms where David commands Christians everywhere to pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “They shall prosper that love you.” Fast forward to Isaiah 16:1 that says, “For Zion's sake I will not be silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not keep my peace.” That means Christians are to speak up and to defend the state of Israel. Not to speak is to speak. To see evil and not call it evil, is evil. Fast forward to Romans, the 15th chapter in the 27th verse where Paul says, “If the Gentiles – that’s anyone who’s not a Jewish person – if the Gentiles had benefited from the Jewish things, then the Gentiles owe it to the Jewish people to administer to them in material things. The Jewish people have given to us the patriarchs, the Old Testament prophets. They have given to us the word of God. They have given to us the first family of Christianity: Mary, Joseph, and Jesus. The twelve apostles and Saint Paul. if you take away the Jewish contribution from Christianity, we wouldn't exist. That’s the connection between Christianity and the Jewish people.
Judith Norman, a professor of philosophy at Trinity University, questioned the ethics of taking donations from Hagee. Norman identified inherent anti-Semitism at the heart of Hagee’s beliefs. “He is anti-Semitic. The Jews are going to go down in flames unless we convert in the end times. It’s all pretty perverse,” she said, referencing his views on the rapture.

Something momentous may indeed occur during this period; however, we must remember that God cannot be put into a box and made to perform according to our calculations. Therefore, we should remain alert but not anticipate any events that we define as needing to occur during this period. Even though nothing of any significance has to happen at the end of this tetrad, it is nonetheless very important to watch and be ready for the next major event on the End Times calendar. Another major prophetic event related to Israel may push us closer to the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week or the final seven years of this age. If two previous tetrad sequences were associated with the reestablishment of Israel and the capturing of Jerusalem, then what if anything might this one portend—perhaps another Mideast war or the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple?
Why would anyone want to vote Tory or Labour? The MP's we have in this country are pathetic. They are out of touch with the public, have no common sense and regard themselves as above the people who employ them. The swamp needs draining badly, the stench is overwhelming. The employees refuse to do what they are told so should be sacked.Vote Brexit party at the MEP elections and in all future elections.
However, ESI’s original petition indicated that they did not hear from Hagee for the rest of 2003 despite repeated attempts at contact. By June of 2006, according to court records, Hagee was working on a deal with media mogul Rupert Murdoch for 24-hour access to a television station to market Judeo-Christian religious products, including ESI’s Dead Sea products. The deal did not close.

Hagee has been described as demonizing Muslims and making false claims about Islam, especially through his rhetoric regarding Islam's intolerant and violent nature.[30][31] In his book Jerusalem Countdown, Hagee describes how "Islam not only condones violence; it commands it."[32][33] He has sometimes compared Islam's violent nature with Christianity's loving nature, as when he writes that "Islam instructs its followers to kill their enemies, but Christianity instructs its followers to love their enemies."[32][34] He has described the Quran as teaching Muslims to kill Jews and Christians: for example, in a September 18, 2006, interview on National Public Radio's show Fresh Air, host Terry Gross asked Hagee if he believed that "all Muslims have a mandate to kill Christians and Jews," and Hagee replied: "Well, the Quran teaches that. Yes, it teaches that very clearly."[35][36] John Esposito has described Hagee as "among the most hardcore Islamophobes."[37]
In 1977, Christian Zionist groups published ads in major U.S. newspapers in opposition to land concessions before Egyptian President Anwar Sadat’s visit to Jerusalem. But their efforts soon began to take a more politically organized shape. As political scientists John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt explained in The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, Israeli military victories and deeper inter-religious ties encouraged Christian evangelicals “to begin working to ensure that the United States was on the ‘right side’ as the Bible’s blueprint for the end-times unfolded.”
“It wasn’t a challenge to bring the message from the book to the screen because the message about the book is about the contribution the Jewish people have made to the world, and especially Christianity, and the hope that we have as believers that in this world of chaos, in a world that’s upside down, in a nation that is losing its sense of direction, that God almighty is still in charge,” said Hagee, adding, “He knows the end from the beginning and he’s told us when you see these signs in the heavens, don’t run to the cabinet and start swallowing Tylenol. Lift up your heads and rejoice; your redemption draweth nigh.”
Trying to predict the date of a future event has been a continual trap that many people have fallen into when writing about the End Times. We all want to know when the major events of the last days will occur. It would be fantastic if we were able to calculate them through cleaver mathematical schemes or to figure them out through looking at astronomical signs like blood moon tetrads. Unfortunately, the Bible does not give us the dates of End Times events in advance, and the timing of events in the last days can not be calculated except after the start of Daniel’s Seventieth Week. Jesus said that only the Father knows the absolute timing of all events (Matt. 24:36).
Moses, who was raised as a royal prince, and son of the of Pharaoh’s daughter, gave up his life of luxury to be with his own people the Israelites. Why? Because he believed the Gospel of Jesus Christ who God prophesied would one day defeat Satan (as recorded in Genesis 3:15, which was written by Moses himself). The Messiah, from the first prophecy ever made, was never a political leader. He was the “seed of the woman” who would one day conquer Satan. And thus Moses, by faith in God’s Word, was willing to suffer hardship in the name of Christ than worry about worldly power and glory – the exact opposite of what Hagee claims a Messiah would be doing. This absurd heresy should be a clear sign that Hagee is a false teacher.
Thanks for your thoughtful reply. It unfortunately reflects one of the many deceases of Christianity which is the I am teacher, theologically educated and therefore superior model that has made this religion useless the the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Father or our Savior. It has a root of pride: Although I cannot hear you, I’m smarter than you, I’m right your wrong, go do some more homework till you agree with me. Balderdash!!! When G-d sent His Son, he taught 12 Jews who would teach others to teach who would teach others to teach who would teach others to teach…. Christian teachers teach, for a fee, (sometimes just and emotional reward), have thrown out the Sabbath commandment and replaced it with a tithing commandment which was meant for Levites. His Son worked as a carpenter therefore He did not tithe, but boy did He know how to give.
“Be fruitful and multiply” is both a blessing and a command. The union of one man with one woman is intended to produce children. This command is the antithesis of the pro-abortion and pro-homosexual agenda. It is not possible for two men or two women to produce a child. God created “male and female,” making marriage between two men or two women a clear violation of the law of God. God will only bless the union He created; therefore He blessed the union of marriage between a man and a woman with children,”
The serpent used God’s words, but flipped their meaning by adding the word not. I think the point this person is trying to get across, isn’t that satan teaches the truth of God’s word, but he certainly uses it to mislead. It happens all the time nowadays. Look at the cult of zionism in the churches, using scriptures falsely to teach adoration and worship of a flesh of people and a state, just because the politicians who created it decided to plaster the name Israel on it. They can pull up all kinds of “prophecies” and claim they point to that state, yet it is satan’s teachings they spread, as the King of Kings came and established his Kingdom, which is not of this world, and the everlasting Gospel has been gathering his children from the four corners to Mt. Zion for almost 2000 years now. They teach God’s word, just as the scriptures were taught in the synagogue on the Sabbath, but with spiritual blindness, just as the vail was upon the eyes of the people back then.

Hagee has pretty much based his entire premise on Joel 2:31. It is an end times prophecy that concerns the Day of The Lord – the end times outpouring of God’s wrath on the Earth in the final years before the Second Coming of The Lord Jesus Christ. It also serves at a time that God will reconcile Israel back to a believing faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Looking at the verse from Joel in context makes it clear that this pertains to the final years of this age:
Two bestselling, prophecy-leaning authors believe the tetrad is directly related to a prophecy found in Joel 2:31: “The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes” (English Standard Version). These two men and their books—Blood Moons by Mark Biltz, and Four Blood Moons by John Hagee—have received widespread media attention because of the fervor and alarm they have created among religious-minded people.

But that’s the way deception works: once deception is welcomed into someone’s life, it spreads.  The Bible calls this rapid growth “leaven” and it represents sin.  But we humans like to call it something–anything!–else.  Allowing deception in one area ALWAYS spreads into other areas.  No part of a person’s life is secure once one is self-deceived.  It takes an act of a sovereign God to open the eyes of the deceived.
Hagee, along with pastor Mark Biltz, promoted the blood moon prophecy. Hagee wrote about the prediction in his 2013 book, "Four Blood Moons: Something Is About To Change." The prophecy stated that a tetrad which began with the April 2014 lunar eclipse was a sign of the end times as described in the Bible. The tetrad ended with the lunar eclipse on September 27–28, 2015. Hagee and Biltz's speculations did gain mainstream media attention in publications such as USA Today and The Washington Post.[38][39] The prediction was criticized by both scientific sources and other Christians.[40][41][42]
You should read through chapters 6, 8, 9 and 11 at this point to familiarize yourself with these seals. They tell you what will happen on the Earth and in the heavens right up until the time of Jesus Christ’s Second Coming. However, the symbols do not make the events plain! Don’t give up and don’t despair—there is another important key you must use.

Hagee's endorsement of Christmas exemplifies he is, as so many, following the deceit of the Catholic church. Instead of exposing Christmas for what it is (Ephesians 5:11, see our report on Xmas), Hagee encourages people to have Christmas trees and do the very thing, at least in principle, he says God's people did in the past ("God's people were following the customs of the heathen . . . ."). Please note what the Lord told the Israelites in Deuteronomy 12:29-32.
Judith Norman, a professor of philosophy at Trinity University, questioned the ethics of taking donations from Hagee. Norman identified inherent anti-Semitism at the heart of Hagee’s beliefs. “He is anti-Semitic. The Jews are going to go down in flames unless we convert in the end times. It’s all pretty perverse,” she said, referencing his views on the rapture.

Well-known to millions of Christians because of his television ministry, Rev. Hagee (the book lists him as Dr., but he does not have an earned doctorate) is the pastor of one of America’s largest word-faith churches. He has been granted several awards from Jewish organizations for his outspoken advocacy for the nation of Israel and Jewish rights. His interest in Israel is no doubt related to the fact that he is also very interested in prophetic fulfillment and is a dispensationalist, believing in a pretribulational coming of Jesus Christ for His church.
The rider on the white horse is the Anti-Christ. He is a man, not a machine. He is Satan’s demonic messiah (Daniel 8:24). Some have said that the rider on the white horse is Jesus Christ. That is not so. The Greek text in Revelations 6 reveals that the crown worn by the rider on the white horse is called “stephanos,” a crown of victory worn by a military conqueror. The Greek word for the crown that Christ wears in Revelation 19 is “diadema” or a crown of royalty. The rider on the white horse in Revelation 6 is the great deceiver, not Jesus!
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).
However, ESI’s original petition indicated that they did not hear from Hagee for the rest of 2003 despite repeated attempts at contact. By June of 2006, according to court records, Hagee was working on a deal with media mogul Rupert Murdoch for 24-hour access to a television station to market Judeo-Christian religious products, including ESI’s Dead Sea products. The deal did not close.
I Thess. 4:16-18 says "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the cloud, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.  Wherefore comfort one another with these words."   We believe that Jesus will literally descend from heaven; there literally will be the shout of an angel and the blast of a trumpet.  The dead will literally rise first, and those who are alive at the time of Christ's return and believe in Him for their salvation will literally be caught up together with Him to meet Him in the air, "and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

Just a note on a few small matters. When reading page 107, I wondered if Hagee believes in a partial rapture view, for he writes, “If you want to go with Him, you need to be watching for Him. We need to be watching, praying, ever-ready for the appearance of Jesus Christ who gathers those who believe in Him.” This may be due to carelessness in writing, but it is important to state one’s theology carefully since people often follow an author’s teaching. He mentions on page 109 that warlocks and witches today can call fire down from heaven. Documentation would be helpful to prove this. He goes on to mention supernatural bloodless surgery, but this has already been exposed as trickery. On page 169 he matter-of-factly states that the Antichrist is Jewish but provides no evidence from Scripture that this is so.

The Bible provides the only solution to the evil of this world. While the world is heading for a judgment day as a result of sin and rejecting God's love through Christ, an individual can escape that fate through a simple act of faith. In fact, you can be as certain of making it through the end times and of being saved from judgment as the Lord's predictions are assured of coming true. For those that can see the truth in God's Word through prophecy, know also that the Bible provides a simple and guaranteed alternative to judgment, which is vital for every person to understand.

I remember how Tim LaHaye's 1972 book The Beginning of the End predicted that people who had been alive since 1914 would experience the Rapture. The book didn’t do that well and it was quietly forgotten. The 1914 prediction never reappeared in his writing or speaking. But when looking at LaHaye’s Rapture theology it's worth considering not just his writings, but two of the key Bible passages he used to support Dispensationalism. 
As if on cue, stories began popping up about how the blm was also trying to seize 90,000 acres of private land along the Texas-Oklahoma border. And how the blm had once before been found guilty of entering into “a conspiracy, a literal, intentional conspiracy, to deprive [another family] of not only their permit grazing rights … but also to deprive them of their vested property rights,” as recounted by Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada.
Chapter 5 to the end of the book provides some of the most interesting material. Unfortunately, in this portion several questionable speculations are also presented. It is all too common for speakers and writers about prophecy to associate current events and persons with statements from the Scripture that are less than clear or definite. Hagee falls into this trap, as he lists many signs that indicate the coming of Christ (85-100). He believes that we are able to discern the prophesied signs before the end of the age, giving us indication that the world as we now know it will soon end.
In what the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association describes as the largest outreach in its six-decade history, Graham will give a dynamic and poignant pre-recorded message the week of Nov. 7, his 95th birthday. The My Hope programs will be available for viewing online and on YouTube. The Cross, the primary program in the My Hope series, will be broadcast on the Fox News channel, TBN, Christian networks and local television stations in a number of cities.

After the television empire that was already reaching around 65 million people was folded into Grace Church of San Antonio—an entity that did not need to report on its financial condition in as much detail as its predecessor—asset growth ballooned. According to tax records of GETV and Grace Church of San Antonio, the surviving entity’s assets more than doubled between 2004 and 2008: $18.4 million to $37.9 million after a period of decline and only slowly increasing donations. Those assets have continued to grow. According to 2018 Bexar County property records, Grace Church of San Antonio and Global Evangelism Inc. have property worth a combined $57.4 million. Hagee himself owns three houses in the San Antonio area.
Such donations to Hagee’s organizations and his personal earnings have allowed him to give generously to a variety of causes that interest him. In fact, a considerable portion of Hagee’s donations to Israeli charities are to organizations beyond the pre-1967 border. Spokesperson Ari Morgenstern confirmed to the Israeli paper Haaretz last year that “less than five percent” of Hagee’s donations have gone to settlers on the West Bank. Among those donations is the $1.5 million John Hagee Building, and a $250,000 dormitory at the Har Bracha Yeshiva. Both are in Ariel on the West Bank, where he has also donated unknown amounts to the settlements of Gush Etzion, Shomron, and others.

We have an obligation to teach our children and our grandchildren about the joy and peace that is found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We serve a God who is the Prince of Peace, and He delights in granting us favor. He will give you the best of things in the worst of times. And let me tell you, peace that surpasses all understanding is definitely a great thing to have during these uncertain times.
