Worshiping Israel, Jerusalem, it’s land , it’s people, it’s leaders, Jews, the Old Testament is still an unacceptable sin to God.
Stephen regarding Solomon’s temple , the Jerusalem temple he said, “However, the Most High does not live in houses made by men.” (Acts 7:48) and he quoted from Isaiah 66 to support his point.
3 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
The Sin Of Worshiping The Land Of Israel Instead of God is Idolatry.
The idolizing and worshiping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God. Especially since Israel today is a shameful nation that has abandoned the sole God of the Bible, Jesus Christ. It is demons that are inspiring people to idolize Israel and the Jews. You are now also God, Bible IGNORANT if you do still think that God blesses any Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people, Nation of Israel. The land of Israel itself and the nation still has nothing to do with our salvation from death and sin.! Jesus alone now died, was buried and rose up three days later for our justification. Defending Israel is NOT even a man’s job. Defending Israel is NOT a function of the New Testament Church. In fact, this may come as a shock to you, but the Bible says that Jerusalem and the Jews will be attacked and defeated, continually as we often hear about it too, until the Lord returns to earth, thus ending “the times of the Gentiles.” Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Israel today is not the fulfillment of any New Testament Biblical prophecy. as well. Only a total jackass, fool would believe otherwise.
1. Jerusalem rules the nations through lending money.
2. Jerusalem kills the prophets and saints.
3. Jerusalem is the “great city” where Jesus was killed.
4. Jerusalem sits on 7 mountains.
5. Jerusalem is described as a whore in the Bible.
6. Jerusalem’s priests wore purple, red, precious stones, and gold.
7. Jerusalem drinks the cup of wrath.
8. Jerusalem’s lovers, the kings of the earth, turn on her to destroy her.
9. Jerusalem is called “Babylon” by Peter in 1 Peter 5:13
The mostly self centered Jews today still are never wrong cause they tend not to see their own sins and falsely complain they are being picked on, ostracized. Perhaps if Israel was not a little vile Ethnic Cleansing terror state, the coverage might be better. It’s not rocket science. Do you know of any other vile little Ethnic Cleansing states that get good press? AS the only news that comes out of Israel is how much more Ethnic Cleansing has been done today? Their sins..
What homes have been bulldozed with innocent Palestinians barely getting out of the way?
How many Beduoins got Ethnically Cleansed this week?
How many innocent Palestinian soccer players have been shot in the FEET by the IDF?
We are not allowed to know about the real news inside of Israel, that”s because the little “free and democratic” Israel has a military censor!
All people don’t even get the real news so how can they next criticize when we don’t even see the real news happening in their little Ethnic Cleansing nation
December 18th, 2014, the High Contracting Parties to Geneva reaffirmed, AGAIN, that Article 49 directly applies to Israel’s illegal actions in the state of Palestine, recognized by 138 nations and the Vatican.
The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by the rogue state of Israel is the longest running crime against humanity in modern times.
And in case you don’t know it yet, with 6.3 Million Palestinians to 6.1 Million Jews in Israel and Palestine, your Greater Israel project has backfired.
No more Jewish State or the most hated Apartheid State on the planet.It was never going to turn out well for the Jews for stealing Palestine from the indigenous Palestinians by terrorism and military force.
That’s part of Israel’s problem, people constantly lying and making accusations as innocent Palestinians babies get burned alive by the illegal squatters at the heart of this dispute.
Even the BBC is not the propaganda mouthpiece of the Israeli State it is the British broadcasting corporation. They thus accordingly advise the world that Israeli settlers are trespassers upon territory they seek to steal from Palestinians. Therefore the trespassers the Jews do deserve to be removed from previously idyllic Palestine.
We, OUTSIDE of the vile little Ethnic Cleansing state of Israel, have seen the videos where the Reuters photographer filmed his own death as the IDF shot him dead while he was covering the news. We all watched during Cast Lead when the IDF tried their best to shoot Ayman Moyeldin while he was reporting LIVE, and MILLIONS of us watched live as the brave Ayman faced down the brutal War Criminals in the IDF and kept on reporting the War Crimes that Israel was committing back then. The list goes on, the IDF TARGETS journalists, this is simply just one of the reasons that Israel is so hated around the world, the most hated nation on the planet.
For good reason, all people of good conscience hate little despotic countries that target, maim and kill journalists to cover up the longest running crime against humanity in modern history.Israel Included
Israel even lost its FREE PRESS designation because of keeping all of the world press out except for the intrepid Al Jazeera, now in America.
Israel does also still innocent targets journalists.
Don’t be fooled as God is not concerned with restoring Israel to the Holy Land anymore .
Jesus told the Jewish rabbis of His time that the kingdom of God had been taken away from them forever. Zionism itself now still has no need, purpose, nor concern for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Salvation is of the Lord. Salvation came through the Jews, not by the Jews. A Jew must be born-again or he or she cannot go to Heaven. Nicodemus was a Jewish leader, a Pharisee. Jesus warned Nicodemus that he needed to be born again or else he couldn’t enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5-7). Hebrews 13:5 promises that God never forsakes His own. If you are unsaved, do refuse to accept Jesus Christ as th Lord of your life, it is you alone that have already forsaken God and rather now next Hell, the Lake of Fire will be your eternal home. https://jesussayscome.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/hell-is-real/
Of all the words of Jesus recorded in the Bible, about twenty-five percent of his teaching was devoted to prophecy concerning the destruction of Jerusalem, the scattering of the Jewish people worldwide, and the end of the world.
Instead of listening to the lies of mere men and demons do read Jesus’ words in their entirety, in the Bible itself firstly. Not one Bible Prophecies Endorses Israel’s present Behavior, land conquests.
The nation of Israel was blessed when it obeyed God’s instructions, and it was next cursed when it disobeyed. The context of Jesus’ Olivet Discourse was about the pending desolation of Jerusalem and the Jews, and NOT about even the Gentile end times. https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/desolate/
Isaiah 62:4…“…for the LORD delighteth in thee…” . The Lord delighteth in those Jews who obey Him. Zionists would have us to believe that God supports all Biological Jews, regardless of how they live, even accepting Christ-rejecters who blaspheme the name of the Lord continually in their hatred for God. Read these Scriptures that Jews won’t quote to you… . It is also hypocritical for Christian Zionists to threaten the wrath of God against those who express disagreement with any policy of the Israeli government when they have done the same thing themselves.
And who is really “blessing Israel;” those who are working for peace in the Middle East, or those who are agitating for a war designed to get two-thirds of all Jews wiped out? Gershom Gorenberg, in his book “The End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount,” says, “I’ve listened to…
American evangelical ministers who insist on their deep love for Israel and nevertheless eagerly await apocalyptic battles on Israel’s soil so terrible that the dry river bed will, they predict, fill with rivers of blood . Jeremiah 15:5-6, “For who shall have pity upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan thee? or who shall go aside to ask how thou doest? Thou hast forsaken me, saith the LORD, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting.” . 2nd Kings 18:11-12, “And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes: Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.”
1st John 2:22-23, “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”
Anyone who denied that Jesus is the Messiah is a liar and antichrist. There are many antichrists; but only one ANTICHRIST (the Beast who is coming). The whole Judaic religion is of antichrist.
Besides being of the “spirit of anti-Christ,” Judaism is based on the false Talmud which looks upon the Gentiles as cattle whose purpose is to serve the Jews. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world, only to serve the People of Israel. “
After all that God did for the Jews, despite their lack of faith and gratitude, they next falsely selfishly take credit for everything and boast lying that it was by their own might that they became a mighty nation…
Deuteronomy 8:14-20, “Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”
The Bible also plainly teaches that God is NO respecter of nations, persons (Romans 2:11). Romans 1:16 proclaims, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Zionism is based on a total misunderstanding of what the Bible teaches. It is true that God gave Palestine to Hebrews in ancient times. But the Bible teaches that their possession of the land was under a conditional covenant with Jehovah. If the Hebrews disobeyed their God, they would lose the land. This is clearly taught in Genesis 17:9-14, Exodus 19:4-5, Leviticus 26:40-45, Deuteronomy 7:12, Joshua 23:15-16, 1 Kings 9:6-9, 2 Chronicles 7:19-22, Jeremiah 34:12-22, Ezekiel 33:23-29, Matthew 21:43, etc. When the Jews rejected their Messiah, God sent the Romans to dispossess the Jews from their land in 70 AD. This was God’s complete punishment on the Jews for crucifying Christ – therefore, the Jews today should not be persecuted for something that happened 2000 years ago. However, their former title deed on the land of Palestine is not abrogated. The New Testament teaches that Christians are to focus on the heavenly Jerusalem, not the earthly one, John 4:21, Galatians 4:24-28, Hebrews 12:18-24. We are told in Hebrews 11:13-16 that even Abraham has no further interest in a restored Jewish state on earth, because he is in a much better place in heaven. Do they thank God for restoring their nation after 1,878 years of exile? (the year 1948 A.D. minus 1,978 = A.D. 70, the year Rome destroyed Jerusalem). The Jews were forced into exile.
The notion that unsaved, Christ-rejecting, Jews have been restored to their homeland is totally false and unbiblical. .
Just as Abraham and Sarah took matters into their own hands, doubting God’s promise to give Sarah a son, trying to force God instead to bless Ishmael, which He refused; likewise, Communist-Marxist false Khazar Jews put Israel back on the map in 1948 through military brutality, indoctrinating U.S. churches to believe that God was behind their manmade restoration of the secular state of Israel, demanding for God to bless it. It doesn’t work that way. The Bible plainly teaches in Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” You just read it for yourself, Israel shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the Lord Jesus Christ returns at the Rapture (which is when the Times of the Gentiles will end). We are now living in the Church age. https://wittnessed.wordpress.com/2015/03/04/so-what-reasons-do-you-have-to-support-the-jews-and-the-state-of-israel/
One of the most Common complaints one hears from the Jewish people is that they are being falsely persecuted, well in reality they are no so innocent.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2014/08/01/invaded/
THE BIBLICAL CAUTION AGAINST JUDAISTIC PARTIALITY, AGAINST FAVOURING THE RICH (THE JUDAIZING CHRISTIAN) AND DEPRECIATING THE POOR (THE GENTILE CHRISTIAN) IN THEIR CHURCH-LIFE. CONSISTENT PROOF OF FAITH DEMANDED IN THE WORK OF CHRISTIAN BROTHERLY LOVE AND IN THE ACKNOWLEDGING OF UNITY OF FAITH IN THE FAITH-WORK OF ABRAHAB THE PATRIARCH AND IN THE FAITH-WORK OF RAHAB, THE GENTILE HARLOT. DEAD AND LIVING FAITH .
JAMES CHAPTER 2 : 1 MY brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. For if there come unto your assembly1 a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment: And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him? But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? If ye fulfil the royal law according to the Scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 1 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. For he shall have judgment without mercy, that 1 hath shewed no mercy; and13 mercy rejoiceth against judgment. What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
It is all today about Judaism and not about personally hating any people by the Jews,
Acts 15:10 Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of the disciples a yoke that neither we nor our fathers have been able to bear? . And by declaring, “The purpose of the Jewish state is to secure the Jewish future,” Benjamin Netanyahu,’s goal is that waging wars for Israel will make the world safe—NOT for ‘democracy’—BUT for Jews, and for JEWS alone, common characteristic of Jewry’s conduct and the modus operandi of its spokesmen. And “Why is the future of Jews more important than the future of Gentiles?” .
