Pastor Charles Lawson's Heresy On Modern Israel
by David J. Stewart | January 2017
“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city,
which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”
Dr. Lawson is the senior pastor of the Temple Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. I love Bible preachers! Albeit, even preachers get caught up into heresy sometimes. Every preacher ought to be a watchdog, keeping his eyes open to satanic heresy creeping into the churches, a root of bitterness, whereby many are defiled. Unfortunately, Pastor Lawson also teaches a wrong meaning of repentance.
Zionism is not a fundamental doctrine of the Christian faith, that is, it doesn't affect salvation. Albeit, it is a dangerous heresy that Satan is using to lead unsuspecting churches into the New World Order. In a YouTube video sermon that I listened to today by Pastor Lawson, titled Israel And The Two-State Solution, I was appalled at the heresy that he is spreading.
Pastor Lawson makes numerous heretical statements, which I am going to Biblically refute...
God Never Promised to Bless a Wicked Nation
Dr. Lawson errantly says that God's promise to bless those who bless Abraham, and curse those who curse Abraham, applies to all Jews of all time. But as you can read for yourself, God's promise was ONLY to Abraham:
Genesis 12:1-3, “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
I'm sick and tired of hearing woefully ignorant preachers apply Genesis 12:1-3 as an umbrella promise to all Jews, when the following Scriptures plainly teach that the ONLY reason God blessed Abraham was because ABRAHAM OBEYED THE LORD:
Genesis 22:18, “And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”
Genesis 26:5, “Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”
One thing I've learned about people in my lifetime is that they are EASILY manipulated, deceived and led down a wrong path. Isaiah 53:6, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” Famous author Mark Twain rightly said, “It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” All across America, hundreds-of-thousands of churches have been duped by Zionism to support the restoration of Jews to the land of Palestine. This is called “Zionism.”
The problem is that the rebirth of Israel in 1948 was the work of the Luciferian-controlled, Council On Foreign Relations, and not the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Pastor J. Vernon McGee has it correct on present-day apostate Israel. We read in the Old Testament that God will one day restore the physical nation of Israel, but ONLY when a remnant of Jews during the 7-year Tribulation period, repent of Judaism and believe the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ (i.e., born-again), SEEKING THE LORD THEIR GOD:
Hosea 3:4-5, “For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.”
The Holy Bible plainly teaches that God CURSES disobedient Jews, He doesn't bless them as Zionists foolishly claim!
In the video sermon I am refuting, Dr. Lawson quotes Psalms:122:6, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.” If you listen to his sermon, you'll notice that he only quotes the first half of the verse. He leaves out the qualifier part of the verse... THEY SHALL PROSPER THAT LOVE THEE!!! This is exactly what Exodus 19:5-6 and Deuteronomy 7:8-12 teach, that is, God ONLY blesses obedient Jews, and He curses disobedient ones. If Jews don't love God, they DON'T prosper!!! The Bible is not commanding believers to pray for peace in Jerusalem, while the citizens living there couldn't care less about obeying the Lord Jesus Christ. That's not what the psalmist meant.
And if you still doubt what I just said, please read and ponder the next three verses. Clearly, king David desired to please the Lord and SEEK THY GOOD:
Psalms:122:7-9, “Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.”
Israeli's Today are Just As Oppressive As Their Arab Neighbors
Please read, The Truth About Israel Is Difficult To Hear, But Christians Need To Hear It (myths abound). In the preceding video (by a Jew), you'll learn about several hundred Palestinian Arab children who were bombed by Israel. Dr. Lawson states, “Israel is a land of freedom... Israel is a Democracy.” If you can watch the preceding video and still think that Israel is a place of freedom, you are blindly biased for Israel. Please read, Christians Persecuted in Israel Today. The truth according to the Bible is that Arabs and Jews have always hated each other, and will continue to do so until the Lord returns and puts an end to the mess in the Middle East:
Genesis 16:11-12, “And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”
I'm tired of prejudiced preachers and churches (like cartoon evangelist Jack Chick) blindly siding with the Jews in Israel, and condemning the Arabs as the scum of the earth. It is wrong and unbiblical for Christians today to take sides in the Middle East crisis. Our Biblical duty is to carry out The Great Commission throughout the world (Matthew 28:19-20), witnessing the Gospel unto all mankind, Jew and Gentile alike, without prejudice (Romans 1:16; 2:11; 10:12). Many churchgoers today have been sinfully deceived to worship Israel instead of the God of Israel. Unsaved Jews die in their sins and go to Hell forever and ever! There is no blessing from God to Christ-rejecting Jews. The Bible clearly teaches that there is neither Jew nor Gentile in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26-29).
We are all sinners. It is unbiblical and sinful to elevate Jews over Gentiles. God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34; Colossians 3:25). God NEVER blesses those who are disobedient, whether they be Jew or Gentile. God blesses those who bless Christians, and curses those who curse Christians (Matthew 25:40, 45). Christians are the “chosen” (1st Peter 2:9).
Pastor Lawson refers to modern Israel as a “miracle,” but it was not a miracle. The holocaust (a massacre) was deliberately caused by world Luciferians powers, to become a pretext for forcing a new nation of Israel in Palestine. Please read the eye-opening book, “Wall Street And The Rise Of Hitler.” Arabs were driven out by British troops at gunpoint from their homes, allowed to take only what they could carry with them. That's called stealing! God allowed king Nebuchadnezzar (Babylon) in 586 BC to annihilate Jerusalem, which caused the nation to cease to exist.
It is very important that every Bible student understand that the “seed” to whom God promised the land doesn't apply to physical Jews; but rather, to spiritual Jews. Genesis 35:12, “And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.” Galatians 3:29, “And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.” No unsaved Jew will ever step foot into the Promised Land. Kindly, they will burn in Hell for rejecting God's gift of eternal life by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:3; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). Biblically, there is no true nation of Israel today. What exists today is a heathen invention by the Devil's crowd. Dr. Lawson says he is “pro-Israel,” but really, and I say this respectfully, he is “pro-Illuminati deception”!!! Counterfeit Israel is waiting for their counterfeit messiah (Antichrist). When the true Messiah (Jesus Christ) returns, He will restore legitimate Israel, and reign as King over all the earth from the literal throne of David in Jerusalem. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!!!
It was the Luciferian-led, international banking cabal that started, nurtured and financed every major world war since the American Revolutionary War. For an excellent book on the subject, please read PAWNS IN THE GAME (.pdf) by Commander William Guy Carr (1895-1959). Luciferians control the world. And of course, the Bible tells us that Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Satan controls the world through willing servants (aka, Luciferians). The Devil offered Jesus all the glories of this world (fame, power and pleasure) in exchange for worshipping him. Jesus overcame Satan by citing the Holy Scriptures.
The Antichrist is Coming to Israel
The “Antichrist” (meaning, “in place of Christ”) is coming to Jerusalem. Midway through the 7-year Tribulation period, the man of sin (Antichrist) will stand up in the (yet waiting to be built) temple and proclaim to be God:
2nd Thessalonians 2:4, “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
The False Prophet will erect an image of the Beast (likely the presently popular All Seeing Eye and The Great Pyramid). Anyone who refuses to worship the image will be killed by the image itself. I am convinced that this refers to incredibly new developing technologies. The whole of man's knowledge now doubles every 8 years. That is amazing, as frightening as it is intriguing.
The Bible calls Jerusalem a spiritually wicked place today:
Revelation 11:8, “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”
The Holy Scriptures plainly identify the whore, “THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS” as the city of Jerusalem...
Revelation 17:3-5 and 18, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. ... And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.”
The MOTHER OF HARLOTS is not Rome, it is “that great city” where the Lord was crucified, according to Revelation 11:8. Israel today is a counterfeit! God did not restore modern Israel, wicked men did. Hosea 3:4-5 teaches that God will restore Israel when a remnant of the children of Israel return and SEEK THE LORD. That hasn't happened yet. Also, see Jeremiah 23:5-8. Please read, “Israel Regathered.” END
New World Order Bible Versions
(Don't help the Devil's New World Order by using and promoting the modern Bible versions. Use ONLY the King James Bible!!!)
—Dr. Jack Hyles (a great quote from the classic sermon, “
Psalms 116:15, “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.”
“The only inspired Words of God
are in the King James Bible!”
—Dr. Jack Hyles (an awesome quote —Dr. Jack Hyles (THE REAL BATTLE!”)
“And brother, any time anybody ever casts any reflection upon the accuracy and the inspiration—verbal inspiration—of this Bible, I'll guarantee you he was inspired by the demons. I'll guarantee you! I don't care if he's got a 'reverend' in front of his name. I don't care if he has a clerical collar on. I don't care what school he's been to. He's of the Devil if he says that the Bible is not verbally inspired by God!” —Dr. Jack Hyles, a great quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “Satan's masterpiece.”
