Toni, at FilesfromToni blog has posted a very good link to vital information for those wondering where the money which is given to different Christian Zionist organizations is really going and how its NOT being used.
I believe we are now seeing the bad fruit of Christian Zionism and I’ll tell you why. There are millions of Christians who give to secular Israel through CUFI, Bridges For Peace, Int’l Fellowship of Christians and Jews who support Israel, headed up by Zionist John Hagee , and other Zionist leaders such as Rabbi Eckstein, in the name of “Christian” while our Christian Messianic brothers and sisters within the land of Israel are persecuted and never see a penny of any of the vast donations that are given to the orthodox Jews by well meaning Christians in America and around the world and who are the very people peresecuting our Messianic brothers and sisters in Israel….
The fact page she linked to can be found here: MaozIsrael, Facts You May Not Know. Also please check out the links she has provided in the side bar under; istandwithisrael.com.
Only today did I receive a newsletter from CUFI and John Hagee..What do I read?
“I had the distinct privilege to speak at the United Nations building on May 15, the 60th anniversary of Israel’s birth. I commend Robert and Anna Stearns of Eagle’s Wings and Regional Directors for Region 10 of Christians United for Israel. Robert and his Eagle’s Wings staff did a masterful job of organizing this historic celebration. The United Nations event was, among many things, an awakening to the miracle existence of a Covenant Land.
We must stand with Israel, as Christians we have no choice. We have a biblical mandate to be “watchmen”. We are commanded not to “hold our peace day and night”. We are not to “keep silent”. (Isaiah 62: 6)
We have put together many opportunities for you to join us in DC for the Third Annual Washington/Israel Summit. If you are a Pastor within 500 miles and would like to host a bus tour to the Summit, Christians United for Israel will scholarship your travel and rooming. Please call the CUFI office at (210) 477-4714 for more information.
Diana and I met several Pastors eager to become part of the leadership of CUFI in their state or city. If you are a Pastor and would like to become an active leader for your state or city please contact Teresa Weaver at (210) 477-4725 and she will provide all the necessary information.
If you own a business and wish to sponsor one of the many dynamic Summit events please contact Shari Dollinger at (404) 875-9064.
I encourage you to pray and seek God’s voice on attending the Summit. We must gather in record numbers to make the impact necessary to make a difference in Washington. The battles are many but the Lord will bless those who bless His people….”
Signed,…. John Hagee
No mention of supporting the persecuted Messianic Jews in Israel….No mention of spreading the ‘Good News’ of the precious Gospel of Christ to those lost in Israel. But instead a misapplying of scripture, and a mandate to politically and financially support the political State of modern day Israel. This is tantamount to asking Christians to support the ‘beast’….for all governments are under the power of the prince of this world, satan, today.
No where in the Word of God are Christians told to: 1- ignore the plight of persecuted believers, 2- support a political power.
What we are told to do is: 1- Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. (Mark 16), 2- As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)
