Pastor Paul Chappell's Unbiblical Zionist Views
By David J. Stewart | May 2019
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.”
Dr. Paul Chappell is senior pastor of the Lancaster Baptist Church in Lancaster, California, since 1986. He is the president and founder of West Coast Baptist College, Lancaster Baptist School, and Striving Together publications. Gratefully, I remember hearing Paul Chappell preach at the Bill Ranch Ranch when I was a teenager in the 1980's. I thank God for the privilege to have attended the Bill Rice Ranch multiple years in a row, with our Baptist church's youth group from Chicago. I cherish those memories dearly, and all my friends in knew high school at our church. I thank God for all Bible-preachers, including Paul Chappell. As a believer, I thank God for Bible-believing churches !!!
Albeit, kindly, I found a disturbing older article today (from 2011) authored by Pastor Chappell, titled “The Significance Of Israel.” There is a deceptive element to Dr. Chappell's article, in that he relates present-day manmade Israel with God's promise to “bless them that bless thee” in Genesis 12:3...
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.”
Dear reader, I want you to notice two things from the Word of God:
FIRST, God made this solemn promise to Abraham alone in Genesis 12:3, and not to his descendants. As always, I want to back up my teachings with Scripture. Exodus 19:5-6, “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” Notice that the promise to BLESS Abraham's descendants is in fact CONDITIONAL! Paul Chappell deceitfully says that this promise is “UNCONDITIONAL.” Paul Chappell states:
The covenant is unconditional. God’s promise to Abraham was not based on Abraham’s performance, but on God's faithful immutability. To be sure, there were times that the Israelites were expelled from the land God promised them because of their sin, but ultimately, God has promised the land to Abraham and to his seed.
Kindly, Pastor Chappell is WRONG! God's promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 doesn't apply to unbelieving Christ-rejecting Jews. God's promises were conditional, as we read in Genesis 26:5, “Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.” Abraham obeyed God, and that is why God blessed Abraham, and blessed those who blessed Abraham. Paul Chappell gives his church congregation (and internet followers) the wrong impression that God's promise to bless Abraham applies to Christ-rejecting Israel today! It doesn't!
Please don't miss this dear reader! Carefully read what the Word of God says in Galatians 3:16, “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” Folks, what Dr. Chappell teaches is in fact FALSE! As you just read for yourself in Galatians 3:16, God didn't make the promises to “seeds” (plural), “as of many; but as one, And to they seed, which is Christ.” Genesis 13:15, “For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.” There you have it! The Word of God plainly teaches that God promised the land of Palestine (from the Nile River in Africa to the Euphrates River in Syria - Genesis 15:18) to Jesus Christ, Who is the “SEED.” As God's adopted children, we are heirs with Christ, of God the Father's promises...
Galatians 3:26-29, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
What a good God and Savior!!! Only those who have been born-again by grace through faith in the Gospel are “Christ's,” and included in “Abraham's seed,” and “heirs according to the promise.” No unsaved person, Gentile or Jew, can claim this promise. The promises made by God to Abraham were made solely to Christ, and those who are in Christ by faith. Every unsaved Jew today is condemned (damned) to Hell (John 3:18), and not one of God's promises made to Abraham applies to them! Present-day Israel is a counterfeit manmade nation!!!
I highly recommend two MP3 sermons on this important topic:
- FREE PALESTINE (by Pastor Steven Anderson - Israeli occupation of Palestine in light of the Bible)
- UNHOLY ALLIANCE (by Pastor Ted Pike - A history of Israel's apostasy leading up to the counterfeit modern secular state of Israel. Please note that I disagree with Mr. Pike on salvation and other doctrines, but he did a brilliant job on Israel).
God did promise to make of Abraham a great nation in Genesis 12:1-3, but the promise to “bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee,” applies ONLY to Abraham because he obeyed God's commandments. No one who rejects Jesus Christ as their personal Savior has a hope of God's blessings at any point. Whether Jew or Gentile, unless a person has been born again, they are going to Hell at the end of this life (Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Psalms 9:17). There is no unconditional promise (as Paul Chappell deceitfully teaches) for God to bless unbelieving Israel, then or now.
God is Not Blessing the United States for Supporting the Manmade State of Israel
SECOND, the establishment of the secular state of Israel in 1948 was NOT the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. In 2015 Pastor Chappell met with the mayor of Israel. Dr. Chappell further states:
I believe one of the reasons God has blessed the United States has been because of our support for Israel. Pray that our country will continue to be an ally to Israel.
Respectfully, I totally disagree! Millions of Americans are homeless on the streets! New York, Detroit, Gary, Cleveland - All Gone To Ruin! America: Destroyed By Design! (a truthful 2 hour documentary film by Alex Jones). Tens of millions of Americans have lost their homes due to foreclosure, as the ungodly Federal Reserve Banks continue to rob from the middleclass (since the Federal Reserve Act of 1913) through the hidden tax of inflation, forcing millions of U.S. citizens into poverty and homelessness! Over 57,000,000 Americans have been murdered in the womb by abortion. Sodomites are legally getting married and adopting children. Is God still blessing America? I think not! Yet, every year our government still continues to give multiple BILLIONS of dollars in welfare to the nation of Israel.
It is ludicrous to make the claim that blessing the secular manmade state of Israel today is somehow benefiting America, when the evidence shows something completely to the contrary. I despise and hate the heresy of Zionism, both political and religious, because it throws the churches off course, duping them to support New World Order agendas (e.g., the illegal murder of 1,455,590 innocent Iraqi people during the Iraqi War after the 9/11 World Trade Center bombing in New York, and the coup of Afghanistan's government after 9/11, and the assault against Syria in recent years, et cetera). I literally heard Pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas on Fox News, calling for preemptive nuclear strikes against Arab countries. That is so wrong! Do you see what Zionism does to a Christian's mind? And now Pastor Chappell is hobnobbing with these apostates in the Southern Baptist Convention. God forgive us!
Pastor Chappell further states:
Israel is a critical component in God’s global plan—a key piece in the prophetic puzzle. In many ways, Israel’s news marks the dates on God’s prophetic calendar.
One of the most significant events of modern history occurred in 1948 when God allowed the Jews to return to Palestine. From that time on, the focus on Israel has been captivating.
British troops invaded Palestine and forcefully drove innocent people from their homes, stealing everything they owned! God may have allowed it, as much as he allowed John Wayne Gacy in Chicago to rape and murder over 33 young men before being arrested in 1978, but God didn't sanction the evils perpetrated by the United States and Britain against the Palestinian people, to create the modern state of Israel in 1948. Historical evidence shows that the Jewish Holocaust was orchestrated by the Luciferian elite to create a pretext for invading Palestine, steal people's homes, and to create the manmade state of Israel. After the historical proven exaggerated Holocaust, no one dared question the British led brutal onslaught against the Palestinians. Think about it! ...
Architects of the New World Order

I have nothing against Pastor Paul Chappell, God knows my heart. I am contending for the Christian faith. For those of you who have researched the New World Order (NWO), then you know the dangers of Zionism in the churches, that trick the churches to go along with the evils of New World Order.
There is a War On for Your Mind
Another example of the NWO creeping into the churches are the never-ending rash of new and improved Bible versions. Please watch the 1:46 hour film titled, “New World Order Bible Versions” (a needful and truthful documentary by Pastor Steven Anderson). The NWO has crept into the churches! Truth matters! It is important that Churches do not go along with the world's deceptions in these last days. Matthew 24:24, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Satan is so clever that if it were possible, he would even deceive the elect (children of God).
Satan is a beautiful liar! Zionism is the effort to restore the Jews to their homeland, which is as Biblical today as Abraham and Sarah exploiting Hagar, literally raping her to to get her pregnant. The Palestinians were raped in 1948, to give birth to the illegitimate modern state of Israel. God does not accept present-day manmade Israel, anymore than He accepted Ishmael. The true nation of Israel doesn't exist today (and hasn't since 586 BC), and won't be restored until the Second Coming of our glorious and omnipotent King—the Lord Jesus Christ (Hosea 3:5-6).
The United States is a proxy (acting in someone's place) of manmade Israel, which is a creation of the Luciferian elite. The same hidden occult powers who created Israel in 1948, control the United States today. They are the “woman” (whore) of Revelation 17:18 in my humble opinion, “which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” If that sounds nutty and conspiratorial to you, look on back on any U.S. One Dollar Bill! Have you ever noticed that giant erect male phallus (an occult obelisk symbol) overlooking the White House, known as the “Washington Monument”? Did you know factually that the Washington Monument is 666 feet tall and 666 inches wide! These occult symbols clearly reveal who controls the United States, that is, evil Freemasons! And why should that surprise anyone, when the Holy Bible clearly identifies Satan as “the god of this world” in 2nd Corinthians 4:4. Watch this creepy 12 minute YouTube video on “Signs Of Satan!” If you're eyes are open spiritually, occult symbols are everywhere! Only a fool denies that the Devil is real.
I've been diligently seeking THE TRUTH since 2002, freely sharing my mind-blowing findings with the world through multiple ministry websites, in the name of Jesus Christ, my precious God, Savior and Lord. God is very good! I love the truth, I must have it! Frankly, I've just touched the tip of the iceberg on all these things. The only reason why the occult powers behind the scenes leave me alone is because I am just a small, obscure, voice. In sharp contrast, Alex Jones is a lethal injection for the Luciferian elite, influencing hundreds of millions of people. Consequently, they have banned and demonized Alex, trying to destroy him. Unfortunately, Alex has hurt himself more than anyone by his open greed for money, prostituting the truth to make money. I love Alex for all that he has taught me since 2002, but Alex needs the Lord! Albeit, I still promote Alex Jones because of his proclamation of the truth, and I want my web visitors to KNOW THE TRUTH! John 8:32 and 36, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. ... If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Although I don't agree with many things that Alex Jones says, and I am against his greed for money, I love the guy for telling THE TRUTH about the New World Order! I don't feel sorry for Alex though. There are homeless people all across the country who have NOTHING. Alex is a multi-millionaire, who has been promoting homosexuals like Matt Drudge. So, no, I feel little sympathy for Alex (but I do care about him and pray for him). Proverbs 19:1, “Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.” Albeit, Alex has exposed our government for selling out to multi-national Globalists, and has exposed the Communist Chinese, and originally told the truth that Sandy Hook in 2012 was a staged fraud, obviously! There are too many Sandy Hook inconsistencies, bizarre facts and a total media blackout (none of which is normal). The subversive powers behind the false flag terror attack want Alex shut down, and are making an example of him, who is the first domino in their assault against THE TRUTH! Just like Wolfgang Halbig, the media are being used to label Alex Jones as a nutcase, using every mistake he ever made to discredit him.
That crazy conspiracy guy Alex Jones that told us the government was coming after our free speech—whose speech is now banned!
“When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.” —George R. R. Martin
Everybody has an opinion about Alex Jones but nobody can deny that deleting him off every social media platform is enough proof for me that they are somewhat scared of him.
If he's just a crazy conspiracist then why are they trying so hard to shut him up and silence him if there wasn't any truth in what he says?? After all this is supposed to be a free country is it not? Regardless rather you like Alex Jones or dislike him is irrelevant either you choose to watch him or you don't. Banning him is just proving he's a threat and he would only be a threat if there was some truth to what he says.
Perhaps you are wondering what in the world Alex Jones has to do with Pastor Paul Chappell? Only in that the truth is being hidden, distorted, censored, filtered and perverted by the government, media and even in the churches. Truth matters! Again, I did not write this article to criticize Pastor Chappell, but to proclaim the truth that Zionism is a dangerous fraud perpetrated upon the churches since the late 19th century, intended to trick Christians to go along with manmade Israel and the New World Order. Our emphasis as Christians ought to solely be preaching THE GOSPEL, and not upon Israel in the least.
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false
teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies...” —2nd Peter 2:1
