John Hagee: Seeking a Theocracy


The words which fly out of this guys mouth (and heart) floor me. I was under the impression we (Christians) are to preach the Gospel to the lost, not tell them to either conform or leave our Nations. What happened to being “salt”?

John Hagee is a saltless certified nut…

  1. Well, what can I say to that but to point out I am Native American, grateful for the Christian missionaries that were leaving the old country to sail the Atlantic and settle on my native soil. As I recollect, some of my people on the Eastern seaboard did offer Christian love and charitably assisted some make it through the harsh winters.

    It does seem a stretch that they made a Christian nation of the United States, but who am I but a converted savage who happens to believe I was chosen before the foundation of the world predestined and foreordained to accept Jesus Christ with all His glory, to be called by the God of all Grace to His Eternal Glory in Christ.

    Maybe he is just blowing of steam because he is not getting his way and he has so inculcated those he was speaking to that his interpretation of the end times is correct and not God’s?

    Anyway, it does seem a bit more of a stretch that we would give atheists the boot seeing there have been more than a few atheists converted by the True Gospel message and most likely will be converted still as we see the day of Salvation drawing near or at least that is what is indicated by the revelation given to John to write down as a witness to the Truth:

    Rev 7:9 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
    Rev 7:10 and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
    Rev 7:11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,
    Rev 7:12 saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
    Rev 7:13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?”
    Rev 7:14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
    Rev 7:15 “Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
    Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.
    Rev 7:17 For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

    I would just note the phrase [“forever and ever! Amen.”] in those Words from Revelation 7:12. Maybe the angels know something John Hagee doesn’t know about the power of the Gospel to save those for whom Christ died even in these and coming days?🙂

    • Amen, Amen, Michael!

      Maybe the angels know something John Hagee doesn’t know about the power of the Gospel to save those for whom Christ died even in these and coming days?

      I believe you’re right! It appears Hagee no longer has faith to believe God still saves.

  2. PJ:

    Initially, I thought to respond with a ‘why do you give this nutcase room?’ comment. You know I’m pretty quick on the draw sometimes. Give me grace Lord…

    I’ve got to say, a second’s reflection gave me pause for thought. You’re completely right. Theocracy is a disastrous idea. Who receives the Gospel then? Who gets saved?

    Bless you.

    • Exactly Steve! Boot out all the lost and there is no mission field. I don’t believe that was what Jesus had in mind.

      Initially, I thought to respond with a ‘why do you give this nutcase room?’

      Aha! I can understand you thinking that.🙂

      A theocracy does seem to be what Hagee (and those like him) seek today. A nation that is a “heaven on earth” in which we are no longer required to be salt (which preserves) or preach the Gospel to the lost.

  3. I’m sure he would soon find himself making exceptions – perhaps rich atheists who “love Israel” can stay.
