Can One Be Anti-Zionist And Still Be A Christian?

An Anti-Zionist Christian needs to reassess their stance with the Jewish Messiah, who is a Jew and at His second coming will reign in Jerusalem [Jewish State] as King of kings and Lord of lords.

As Christians, are we supposed to be supporters of the Jewish State or be anti-Zionist?

2 See how Your enemies rage, how Your foes have reared their heads. 3 With cunning they scheme against Your people and conspire against those You cherish, 4 saying, “Come, let us erase them as a nation; may the name of Israel be remembered no more.” 5 For with one mind they plot together, they form an alliance against You

-Psalm 83:2-5, BSB

Let’s put the words in bold together.

Enemies rage, Your foes scheme against Your people and conspire against those You cherish, the name of Israel be remembered no more. They form an alliance against You [the LORD].

By hating Israel, the person in turn hates God who came from the Jews in the person of Jesus Christ to save the world from their sins.

21 “Believe Me, woman,” Jesus replied, “a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.

-John 4:21-22, BSB

I ask then, did God reject His people? Certainly not! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.

-Romans 11:1, BSB

Paul asks a rhetorical question if God has rejected the Jewish people for rejecting Jesus their Messiah? The answer he gives is no because there is “a remnant chosen by grace.” [Romans 11:5 (b)].

35 Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for light by day, who sets in order the moon and stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the LORD of Hosts is His name: 36 “Only if this fixed order departed from My presence, declares the LORD, would Israel’s descendants ever cease to be a nation before Me.”

-Jeremiah 31:35-36, BSB

The LORD will never do away with the Jewish people. I want to be crystal clear, salvation is only through faith in Jesus Christ, to the Jews first and also to the gentiles. A Jew or a non-Jew needs to put their trust in Jesus to go to heaven. Without Jesus Christ, no human being can get saved.

The Scripture declares that Jesus will not return until the JEWISH people are ready to receive Jesus at His second coming. For the Jewish people to do that, there has to be a Jewish State.

34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her, how often I have longed to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling! 35 Look, your house is left to you desolate. And I tell you that you will not see Me again until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.’

-Luke 13:34-35, BSB

The context in Luke 13, makes it very clear that God will establish the Jewish nation before His second coming to rule the world from Israel to fulfill what Zechariah 14 says…

3 Then the LORD will go out to fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 On that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half the mountain moving to the north and half to the south.

16 Then all the survivors from the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And should any of the families of the earth not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, then the rain will not fall on them.

-Zechariah 14:3-5, 16-17, BSB

In Zechariah 14, shows Jesus’ second coming and reigning from Jerusalem. All the nations of the world will come and pay Jesus Christ respect for who He is, Lord and King of the universe.

Friends, I will caution you to stay away from professing Christians who are against the Jewish State because that does not come from the Holy Spirit, but is satanic and evil from the father of lies.

I will name a couple of people who teach replacement theology, which I have come across and will quote them.

John Piper “Not only that, but God promised to Israel the presently disputed land from the time of Abraham onward. God said, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring’” (Deuteronomy 34:4). Statements to that effect are repeated many times. But neither of those two facts — Israel’s election and God’s covenant promise of the land — means that Israel has a present-day divine right to the land.” [www.desiringgod.org/interviews/should-we-side-with-israel-or-palestine]

John Piper rejects the very Scripture that he quotes, how blind do you have to be to use the Scripture that literally says the opposite on what you believe in.

The other questionable Christian is Lee Poskey from WordPress who is deceiving many naive Christians who goes to his site and supports his false doctrines. The post that I will mention here is leeposkey.com/2020/08/16/duped-by-dispensationalism/

Lee Poskey quotes Genesis 12:2-3, but I will add for context verse 1 as well.

“1 Then the LORD said to Abram, “Leave your country, your kindred, and your father’s household, and go to the land I will show you. 2 I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you; and all the families of the earth will be blessed through you.” -Genesis 12:1-3, BSB

Lee Poskey said, “If you’ve been influenced by dispensationalism or Zionism, you probably think that the current country/state of “Israel” is what that scripture is speaking about…but that’s dead wrong.

Ironically, the analysis of that particular scripture is so straightforward, that it almost seems impossible that so many people could be duped by propagandists. (Especially KJV bible believers).”

My fellow believers in Jesus Christ these two people are twisting the Word of God to substantiate their disdain towards the Jewish nation. Plus, it shows that they are going against the Jewish Messiah and reject what the Bible says about Jesus ruling in Jerusalem, which will fulfill future prophecy regarding the reign of Jesus for 1000 years. Only Satan would not like that prophecy as he will be locked up for that time in the bottomless pit. Now you know where it is coming from and why the world hates the Jewish nation.

Do Not Believe Every Spirit, But Test Them To See If They Come From God

“3 As I urged you on my departure to Macedonia, you should stay on at Ephesus to instruct certain men not to teach false doctrines 4 or devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculation rather than the stewardship of God’s work, which is by faith.” -1 Timothy 1:3-4, BSB

False doctrine is the teaching of myths, which is composed of a make-believe reality built upon lies concerning spiritual things like how to obtain salvation and the afterlife.

If you are motivated by speculation with things that are not in the Bible, which is capturing your attention, and with how important is one’s pedigree, you have drifted away from doing God’s work, engaging in false doctrine with the potential of being deceived.

Demonic spirits will always try to get you to go to another source, apart from the Bible, for spiritual insight.

The words in red are my comments and the words in black are the Scriptures.

1 Now the Spirit [the Holy Spirit will only lead you into God’s Word] expressly states that in later times [before the rapture] some will abandon the faith [the Word of God] to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons [through other sources], 2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars [who are false Christians being used by demons], whose consciences are seared with a hot iron. – Timothy 4:1-2, BSB

Friends, no other Book out there like the Bible is infallible. Every other source that tries to teach you spiritual truths might bring with it spiritual landmines. One wrong move and you can blow up your faith by substituting biblical truth for a lie. The immediate effect will be like a leech attaching itself to one’s faith, to drain it until it is all gone. That is what false doctrine does to a person who accepts the lie as the truth.

Satan Plants His Disciples In The Churches. Not Even Churches Are Safe. Know The Word

There are many false teachers today who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ and are deceiving many genuine believers. The first thing they have to attack, that which they profess to follow, the Word of God. In Genesis 3, Satan defeated Eve by undermining her trust in God’s Word, which keeps her grounded and firm in the LORD.

“Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field that the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden?’ ” -Genesis 3:1, BSB

Satan’s first attack was to question God’s Word in a subtle way to bring about doubt. Once he moves you away from the Scriptures, you will be an easier target for him to destroy. Why would the devil act any different today if he got to deceive two people who had no sins at the time? It worked well with Adam and Eve, so you know that Satan will continue to attack those whose faith’s foundation is not upon the Rock, which is the Word of God [Matthew 7:24-27]. I will show you a false teacher whose name is Andy Stanley, who is not from God but has been planted by the devil to make you doubt God’s Word. See below.

Andy Stanley, who said, “the foundation of our faith is not the Scriptures,” clearly he does not know the Scriptures. His statement is the most outlandish thing that I have ever heard, especially coming from a pastor who is supposed to know the Bible. The Scriptures, without a shadow of a doubt, says contrary to what Stanley believes. Read below.

“Consequently, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” -Romans 10:17, BSB

According to Romans 10:17, the foundation of a Christian’s faith is the Scriptures, yet these false teachers can blatantly teach the opposite. It puzzles me greatly.

I would also like to point out another false teacher who resides in Portland, Oregon. This false teacher attacks the person of Jesus Christ and makes Him not even know that He is the Son of God. This false Christian is John Mark Comer. In his book called: “The Ruthless Elimination Of Hurry.” On page 126, Mr. Comer said, “Notice, Jesus came out of the wilderness with all sorts of clarity about his identity and calling. He was grounded. Centered. In touch with God and himself. From that place of emotional equilibrium and spiritual succor, he knew precisely what to say yes to and, just as importantly, what to say no to.”

First of all, Jesus is God. To make it simple. Jesus’ humanity is God’s garment. It is like God was leaving His house [in heaven] and puts on His clothes, Jesus’ flesh, to visit us and accomplish His purpose [His death and resurrection].

“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity dwells in bodily form.” -Colossians 2:9, BSB

John Mark Comer is saying that Jesus only knew who He was after coming out of the wilderness. Mr. Comer is claiming that Jesus did not only have any clue who He was, but He didn’t even know what was His purpose here on earth until His journey in the wilderness. This mindset alone reveals that John Mark Comer is not getting his understanding of the Scriptures from the Holy Spirit but he is getting it by demonic spirits.

The Scripture reveals that Jesus already knew at a young age that He is the Son of the Living God, as found in Luke Chapter 2, which says…

“42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up according to the custom of the Feast.”

49 “Why were you looking for Me?” He asked. “Did you not know that I had to be in My Father’s house?” 50 But they did not understand the statement He was making to them.” -Luke 2:49-50, BSB

The 12 year old Jesus, knew that He was the Son of God, making Himself God [John 5:16-18].

The church I go to is promoting this garbage of a book. I can’t see it any other way, but for what it is. I am deeply offended that the youth leadership and even maybe the pastor is okay with giving garbage to their congregation to eat [spiritually speaking]. How in the world can leaders in a church, who are supposed to be the ones to protect God’s people, be the ones killing them? To those who is given much [responsibilities], more will be demanded of.

“But the one who unknowingly does things worthy of punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from him who has been entrusted with much, even more will be demanded.” -Luke 12:48, BSB
