The Gospel of the Kingdom: FORETOLD BY THE PROPHETS

This has turned out to be a very interesting little book. What has grabbed my interest, besides the obvious fact of it being about the Kingdom of God, is Mauro’s early grasp of how dangerous dispensationalism was, even at the early date in which this was written. He foresaw how, if not stopped, it would […]

Academics call on State Dept to revise its definition of anti-Semitism, respect criticism of Israel as protected speech

Its about time. This has gotten so out of hand it has become ridiculous. The term itself, anti-semitism, has lost all meaning. If someone questioned you as to the meaning of the term, what would be your answer? From Mondoweiss May 18, 2015–An open letter signed by over 250 members of the Jewish Voice for […]

Meet Bibi’s New Friends: The New Apostolic Reformation

Interesting… Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been one of the most beloved Israeli politicians in the history of Christian Zionism. It has been a religio-political match made in heaven, with Christian Right leaders providing Netanyahu with money in Israel and political clout in the U.S., and the Israeli leader putting up with an Evangelical end-times […]

Israel chooses the path to apartheid

Good article at Haaretz I must add last weeks Israeli election opened my eyes. For years my belief (noted by the many posts I’ve put up over those years) was the problem in Israel was their government, their leaders. After last week I now realize while that may be true, it’s only true in part: […]

Oops, the 51st State is “Offended”

No surprise here, unless you’re not aware the 51st State of America “must” be in on the know of every step the American President makes: Every breath you take And every move you make Every bond you break, every step you take I’ll be watching you Quote, ‘Offended’ Israel not to support publicly the US-Cuba […]

Zionist Christians’ war on the true meaning of Christmas

“The rhetoric of Christian Zionists consistently places loyalty to the modern state of Israel above the example and teachings of the Jesus born in Bethlehem whose birth Christmas celebrates. It’s time to stop calling such groups Christian Zionists and instead use the term Zionist Christians, to more accurately reflect their priorities” I agree with the […]

“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” (4)

Before continuing with the 4th part of this essay I wanted to go back to part one and a specific point brought up by the author: That most of the Jews “returning” to Palestine never came from Palestine in the first place; that they are not even of the lineage of Shem. They are Gentile […]

What is the vision of the Jews who want to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem?

This is only one of a number of similar articles I’ve come upon which has greatly disturbed me. It appears a greater number of Israeli Messianic Jews, then I originally believed, are now caught up in Israeli Nationalism. This summer I became engaged in a discussion with one Israeli believer at a discussion board, who […]

The Palestinian Church

Source Sabeel Amid the ranks of Israeli military troops in this year’s annual Jerusalem March strode a colorful and vocal group of international Christian Zionists.

Israel: Spiritual or Literal

“The European cuckoo bird is known as a “brood parasite.” The female lays her eggs in the nests of other smaller birds, like the reed warbler. In turn, they unwittingly incubate, feed, and raise the young impostors-usually at the expense of their own genuine offspring.” A somewhat strange introduction, but an interesting message. Quote, The […]

WAR

Anyone willing to wager on the likelihood of America being involved in another war by the end of 2014?  Two Democratic senators, Robert Menendez and Chuck Schumer (along with Republican warhorse Mark Kirk), are circulating a bill that would hamstring the Obama administration’s ability to negotiate with Iran by broadening sanctions. And the bill would […]

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas): An Example of Dispensational Theology & Christian Zionism’s Influence upon American Politics

From Nathan Pitchford’s article, The Threat of Christian Zionism If the phenomenal success of the bestselling Left Behind series indicates anything about the prevailing eschatological mindset across a wide swath of the evangelical landscape in modern America, then we would do well to pause and consider. Where is this fascination with the sensational, and frequently outright bizarre, […]

Christian Zionism’s foothold in Nazareth

Heard about this last week through an email sent out by Hagee’s Ministry  From Jonathan Cook: The blog from Nazareth Nazareth has been arguing for decades that it should host the first Arab university in Israel. Successive governments have turned a deaf ear, fearful that an Arab university teaching in Arabic might make the local […]

Your Thoughts: Israel and the Church, Two Separate Destinies

Today I received the link to the article below within a newsletter I subscribe to. The article, written by Jack Kelley (Grace Thru Faith) is a response to concerns he has about extremism within the Hebrew Roots Movement, While Hebrew Roots appears to teach that because of the Lord’s death, obedience to the Law is […]

Waiting for Armageddon

Watched this last night and thought it was fascinating. Don’t think I’ll forget anytime soon hearing one participant in this video (think he was a pastor?) talking about how it will be “fun” to watch (from heaven) those left on earth being slaughtered after the rapture. Sigh…. Watch: Waiting for Armageddon 

Israel and the promises of God

From Part 3 in the series, Rightly dividing the word of truth, by Kevin Daly ‘The Old Testament promises a national salvation of Israel, it promises a natural restoration when the Jews will live in peace in the whole Promised Land, and nothing in the New Testament can cancel those divine unconditional promises, and if it […]

Steve Lumbley (Apostasy Watch) has posted “What We Believe About Israel”.  I wanted to share it.   1.

Did Glenn Beck just jump the shark in Israel?

Not satisfied with spreading his conspiracies, paranoia, and insanity in America alone, Beck has decided to take his show on the road beginning with stirring up religious and political dissension within Israel.   It isn’t just members of the US Congress who are making a beeline for Israel for summer vacation (more than 80 members […]
