The Israel Lie
By David J. Stewart | May 2019
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.”
Kindly, I love all people, Jew and Arab alike. Romans 10:12, “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” You cannot be right with God and hate anyone! God is love, and His children who walk in the Holy Spirit abide in love (Galatians 5:22-25).
There is much misunderstanding in the churches today concerning Israel. It is very simple dear reader. I always like to use the analogy of Abraham and Sarah from the Old Testament to explain modern Israel. God had promised a son to Sarah, but she was very old and didn't think it possible. In fact, Sarah laughed at the “LORD” (Genesis 18:1). ...
Genesis 18:12-15, “Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.”
Sarah didn't believe what the Lord had promised, so she convinced her husband Abraham to effectively rape Hagar (just as Britain raped Palestine to give birth to present-day Israel). Hagar became pregnant, giving birth to a son, whom they named Ishmael. Abraham and Sarah sinfully took matters into their own hands, manipulating the situation, but they should have WAITED UPON THE LORD! Likewise, in 1948 ungodly men raped Palestine, driving out the inhabitants from their homes, giving birth to the MANMADE secular state of Israel, which still exists today.
Abraham was in no better spiritual condition than Sarah, who also doubted and laughed at the LORD...
Genesis 17:17-19, “Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.”
The LORD made a promise...
Genesis 17:17a, “Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed...”
You see my friend, sinful humans by nature doubt God, and want to take matters into their own hands. Both Sarah and Abraham laughed in God's face. Abraham laughed so hard that he fell to the ground. Instead of waiting upon the Lord and believing what He had said, Who promised them a son in their old age, they sinfully took matters into their own hands! In the same exact sinful manner, Britain (through use of military force) drove the Palestinian people from their homes. Jewish settlers were given those invaded properties, and the traumatized Palestinian people left homeless.
Now, I am sick and tired of hearing Zionist preachers trying to justify this theft, invasion and subsequent hostile creation of the modern state of Israel. 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.” This single passage of Scripture exposes the modern secular state of Israel as a fraud. The Word of God tells us that the Jews would be led away captive into the nations, which happened in 70 AD when Rome invaded Jerusalem. Wicked men have attempted to restore the Jews to their homeland, which movement is called “Zionism.” The big problem is that man is doing this, and not God. The big problem is that God promised to regather and restore the nation of Israel only when the Jews repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ in faith, which hasn't happened. What ungodly Zionists are attempting to do is deceive the churches to support fake Israel, as if it is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy (which it certainly is not).
As an example of some typical Zionist brainwashing in the churches today, Pastor James L. Melton wrote a horrible book called, “Don't Mess With Israel,” in which he says the following shameful and unbiblical words...
The “Palestinian Problem”
One of Satan’s biggest deceptions of the last days is that “Palestine” is the homeland of the “Palestinian refugees.” The word “Israel” occurs 2,565 times in the Bible, and in 238 of those occurrences one can see the word “land” in the same verse. “Palestine,” on the other hand, occurs only once in the Bible, yet this has become a common name for the holy land given to the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. So, the first dose of deception came in the form of a smooth name change that semantically robbed the Jews of their God-given homeland. The second dose came in the form of another smooth word, a word chosen to tug on one’s heart strings while historical facts would fall by the wayside: If only the poor and downtrodden “refugees” had a place to call home.
These “refugees” are supposedly Arabs who fled for safety during Israel’s war for independence in 1948. The word “refugee” itself indicates someone who is in danger and must flee for a place of safety. This was not the case with the Arabs living in the holy land in 1948. These people willingly left the land after being told to do so by their Arab military commanders. The Arab League misled them into believing that they would soon return to the land and claim their share of Jewish property after Israel suffered defeat. When Israel began winning the war, instead of losing, the Arabs panicked and fled in large numbers, even though the Jewish leaders encouraged them to remain in the land and carry on their normal lives.

What a bold-faced liar! I say that kindly, but truthfully. Mr. Melton is a liar! Do you really believe that the Arab people abandoned their homes and refused to come back, as “Jewish leaders encouraged them to remain in the land and carry on their normal lives”? What are you smoking James Melton? Please watch this clip from the movie, “Beyond Jordan,” to learn THE TRUTH, seeing how difficult life is for the Palestinian people on the West Bank because of Israel today. You'll see in the video how Israeli solders are relentlessly trying to force the Palestinian Arabs from their homes, so Jewish settlers can take them. The soldiers urinate in bags and throw it down from the roofs upon the Palestinians. They throw dead cats, dung, rocks, garbage, debris and anything they can find to harass their Arab neighbours. Then Israel puts up 27 foot tall walls with barbed wire in the new settlements, shutting out the Palestinian people. James Melton is a liar in this matter! Here is the truth...
(an awesome 1:53 hour movie by Pastor Steven Lee Anderson, befriending the Palestinian victims)
I wrote this article to expose the lie that present-day Israel is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. The Holy Bible tells us that Jerusalem will be “trodden down” by the Gentiles until the “TIMES OF THE GENTILES BE FULFILLED.” 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.” That time won't come until the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is represented in Nebuchadnezzar's image (interpreted by God through Daniel) as the Stone cut out of the mountain without hands, which smashes the kingdoms of the Gentile world. Daniel 2:34, “Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.” Hence, we are still living in The Times Of The Gentiles. I love the Jewish people, and I am NOT an Anti-Semite (which is the popular accusation used by the ungodly newsmedia to demonizes truth-tellers). I am a born-again Christian, who believes that the King James Bible is the pure, perfect, accurate, preserved, infallible and inspired WORDS OF GOD!!! I am simply on the side of God's truth, not the Jews or the Palestinians.
I believe the Holy Bible, which teaches that God is not done with Israel. That is, the nation of Israel, not Christ-rejecting Jews! No unsaved Jew will escape God's fiery wrath in the Lake of Fire (for all eternity without mercy, rest or hope). Jesus told Nicodemus, a biological Jew, “YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN” (John 3:5). No one can enter into God's Kingdom without being BORN AGAIN!!!
God is not done with the nation of Israel, which belongs to God alone. In 586 BC God allowed Babylon to destroy Israel, which has not existed as a nation since, and still doesn't today! The present-day secular state of Israel is a manmade fabrication, an imitation, a counterfeit of true Israel. Just as Abraham and Sarah took matters into their own hands and conceived Ishmael (the father of the Arab people), so also have ungodly men conceived the modern state of Israel, and are demanding (through Zionist theological deception) that the churches support it! There is no Biblical mandate for believers today to support the manmade state of Israel (since May of 1948).
Let me share with you a remarkable passage of Scripture:
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.”
Many theologians claim that the preceding Scripture has happened with the return of modern Israel. However, notice carefully that the Bible says the children of Israel shall “RETURN, AND SEEK THE LORD THEIR GOD.” That hasn't happened yet!
Pastor J. Vernon McGee (1904-1988) is absolutely correct about present-day Israel...
“Israel is just like any other nation. Some think they're a little brutal, but my friend, they're on the defense over there, you can be sure of that. And they have to exercise a strong defense system. They're not backing that land in fulfillment of prophecy. They have returned to the land, but they have not yet returned to the Lord. When they return to the Lord there will be blessing. They have not yet done that!
...they went out in 70 A.D. And they actually have never returned to the land according to the Word of God. Now hear me very carefully because this is very important to see. They have returned to the land today, and it's remarkable what has happened over there, but it's not the fulfillment of prophecy, because the prophecy says when they return they'll return TO GOD!”
SOURCE: Pastor J. Vernon McGee; THRU-THE-BIBLE; Hosea 2:19-23 and Hosea 3:4.
Toward the end of the Tribulation period, a remnant of Jews will repent and turn to the Lord, and God will defend Israel then. Upon His Second Coming, the King of kings, Jesus Christ, the wonderful Lamb of God, will establish His earthly Kingdom and reign over the earth with an “rod of iron” (Revelation 19:15 - true justice) for the next 1,000 years! Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
So that is what is happening in Israel today. Wicked men have tried to force our omnipotent God to bless a heathen nation of idolaters, which He will not do! God blesses an obedient people. That is why we are seeing oppression in many forms happening across the United States today, because our sins have separated us from our holy God. Isaiah 59:1-2, “Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” Either sin will keep us from God's Word, or God's Word will keep us from sin! I did not write this article to attack Jews, God forbid. I wrote this article to educate Christians concerning THE TRUTH. Our whole duty the Bible says is to obey God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13), and our main job is witnessing THE GOSPEL (John 15:5).
Like Israel Today, Lordship Salvation is a Counterfeit
This is what the heresy of Lordship Salvation is all about, adding to God's simple plan of salvation, requiring people to “turn away from sinful ways” (which ignorant preachers falsely understand to mean Bible repentance) to be saved. That is not “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11b). The “simplicity” that is in Christ is to simply BELIEVE THE GOOD NEWS! That is, if you believe (rely or trust) the GOOD NEWS (i.e., the Gospel) that Jesus is the Christ Who DIED on the cross for your sins, was BURIED, and bodily RESURRECTED three days later, you are eternally saved! Simply believe the GOOD NEWS and you are forever, securely and irrevocably saved!!! That is God's PROMISE! John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”
Lordship Salvation is nothing but Calvinism repackaged! Man cannot add to, nor subtract from, what God has already finished through the shed blood of Jesus Christ! If you are a born-again Christian, it is solely because of what Christ did to pay for your sins! Jesus died on the cross, was buried and bodily resurrected three days later for our justification (1st Corinthians 15:1-6). That is the Bible way to Heaven.
Love the Palestinian People
I love Jewish people! I sincerely do, but I also love Arab people too, equally. If Gentiles are “dogs,” then Jews are simply a different kind of dog, called “a sinner”! We're all sinful dogs in need of redemption! God is not a respecter of persons. Romans 3:22, “Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference.” Romans 10:12, “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” Zionist preachers—Jack Chick, William P. Grady, James Modlish, Charles Lawson, Paul Chappell, John Hagee and James Melton—sinfully idolize biological Jews!
No Christian believer is right with God who takes sides with the Jews against the Arabs! God is not a respecter of persons. God took the promised land away from His people in 586 BC due to their spiritual harlotry. The Scriptures are clear that God will not restore the nation of Israel until Christ returns in the future (when The Times of The Gentiles be fulfilled, coming to an end). Man has no right to force the hand of God, which is what they have done since 1948 by pushing the Zionist created secular state of Israel. God is not obligated to bless what men bless! Genesis 12:3b speaks only of the patriarch Abraham, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee.” Abraham obeyed the voice of God, which is the only reason God blessed him. Genesis 26:4-5, “And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.” God blesses those who OBEY Him, keeping His statutes and commandments (Exodus 19:5-6). The nation's of the earth have been blessed through Israel (through whom the LAW came to the world) and Jesus Christ (by Whom came GRACE to the world for salvation).
I was disgusted when I heard Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, on Fox News a couple years ago shamefully calling for preemptive nuclear strikes against the Arab countries. Pastor Jeffress speaks as a fool! Perhaps we should nuke Israel! God forbid. I am not for bombing anybody. My point is that there is a relentless hostility, contempt and hatred residing in churches across America against our Arab neighbours! I'll be honest, I can fully understand why a victim in Palestine of Israeli occupation, would strap a bunch of explosives to them self and blow up a McDonalds in Jerusalem! If you think that is unreasonable, then carefully consider that our founding fathers fought until the death to liberate themselves from the oppression of English rule in the early colonies in America. Desperate people do desperate things!
I am tired of Zionist preachers—such as the quote from James Melton I shared with you earlier—saying that the land of Palestine belongs only to the Jews, and the Arabs are trespassing. You are very wrong! That land belongs to God alone, and He gave it to Abraham's “seed” (singular: Christ). 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.” There you have it! Galatians 3:28-29, “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.” The preceding passage of Scripture VERY CLEARLY teaches that only born-again Christians will be the recipients and partakers of the promises which God made to Abraham, because we are IN CHRIST! It matters not if you are an Arab or a Jew, we're all ONE in Jesus Christ.
The ungodly and unbiblical idea that God has given the land of Palestine to wicked Christ-rejecting Jews today is of the Devil! 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.” The present secular state of Israel (since 1948) has no Biblical right to claim divine protection, which is a direct violation of Luke 21:24. It is the Luciferian elite, as evidenced by their occult symbols displayed all around us today, who are in control of modern apostate Israel and the sin-torn United States.
The Kingdom of Israel verses the Kingdom of the Gospel
HOW THEY PRAYED
George Whitefield, the famous English evangelist, said, “O Lord give me souls, or take my soul!”
Henry Martyn, a missionary, cried as he knelt on India's coral strands, “Here let me burn out for God!”
David Brainerd, missionary to the North American Indians 1718-1747, declared, “Lord, to Thee I dedicate myself. Oh, accept of me, and let me be Thine forever. Lord, I desire nothing else; I desire nothing more.” The last words in his diary, written seven days before he died, “Oh, come, Lord Jesus, come quickly. Amen.”
Thomas a Kempis, 1379-1471, said, “Give what Thou wilt and how much Thou wilt, and when Thou wilt. Set me where Thou wilt and deal with me in things as Thou wilt.”
Dwight L. Moody implored, “Use me then, My Saviour, for whatever purpose and in whatever way Thou mayest require. Here is my poor heart, an empty vessel; fill it with Thy grace.”
John McKenzie prayed thus when as a young missionary candidate he knelt on the banks of the Lossie: “O Lord, send me to the darkest spot on earth!”
“Praying Hyde,” a missionary in India, pleaded, “Father, give me these souls, or I die.”
Mrs. Comstock, a missionary in India, uttered this prayer of parting when she sent her children home, “Lord Jesus, I do this for Thee.”
I highly recommend reading, “THE TWO COVENANTS” (.pdf file), an excerpt from Philip Mauro's excellent book, “The Gospel Of The Kingdom” (1927). Reading this book really helped clarify my thinking, compelling me to reject Dispensationalism in all its forms! Folks, God has already made TWO GREAT DIVISIONS to His Word—OLD and NEW TESTAMENTS! Respectively, these two great divisions of God's Word represent the TWO GREAT DOCTRINES of LAW and GRACE!!!
In sharp contrast, Dispensationalism makes 7 or 8 divisions of God's Word, which distracts the Bible student from the simple intended emphasis of LAW and GRACE!!! Dispensationalism emphasizes the future KINGDOM OF ISRAEL, whereas the plain unhampered Word of God emphasizes THE KINGDOM OF THE GOSPEL (hence the name of Dr. Phillip Mauro's excellent book). The Holy Bible is God's Word and doesn't need our help. Pastor Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) did just fine without the confusing and nonsensical junk theology of Dispensationalism! God always keeps things simple, giving us just TWO TESTAMENTS (Old and New). ...
The Two Covenants (an excerpt from chapter three of The Gospel Of The Kingdom by Evangelist Philip Mauro)
Dispensationalism was introduced in the late 19th century as a clever way of tricking the churches into supporting the rebirth of Israel in 1948 (which was all planned long before World War II). In fact, it was Luciferian Freemason leader Albert Pike who predicted Three World Wars prior to his death in 1891. Cyrus I. Scofield (1843-1921) was the primary religious salesman of this new strange Zionist theology, called “Dispensationalism,” which didn't exist for thousands of years of history! Dispensationalism divides the Bible into 7 or 8 divisions, focusing on the future Kingdom of Israel. This detracts from soulwinning to all men, whether black, red, green or white. I guarantee you that the most Zionist churches do the least soulwinning, but take the most tour trips to Israel!
Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) wrote an awesome book called, “Enemies Of Soulwinning.” If I were to add a chapter to such a book, I would call the chapter, “Zionism - An Enemy Of Soul Winning.” Zionism infiltrates and corrupts churches, emphasizing blessing Christ-rejecting arrogant Jews more than preaching the Gospel to homeless, poor and rejects of society (like the Palestinian people). Shame on Pastor Robert Jeffress in Texas for appearing on the ungodly Fox News network to call for nuking Arab nations! That is not a Christlike spirit! Every Christian, especially a pastor, should have a deep heart of love and compassion toward all men.
That is why I make a fuss with Pastor Steven Anderson (whom I love as my brother in Christ), for his unbiblical reprobate doctrine. Homosexuals are degenerates, there is no argument, but they are also sinful people whom Jesus Christ died for on Calvary's cross. “Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6b). No one is right with God who hates unrepentant sinners! God loves people!!! Luke 6:35, “But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” As saints who are a part of the Body of Christ, as God's children, homosexuals are our sworn enemies! The Holy Bible commands us to love them! The world is the enemy of the Church, because they are enemies of Jesus Christ. John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.”
I am not telling anyone to dislike Jewish people, God forbid. I am simply saying that we are all created equal in worth in God's eyes. A Jewish person is a sinner, just like a Gentile is a sinner, and we all must be born-again in order to go to Heaven. Jews don't get any special privileges just for being born with a certain DNA. God loves African Americans just as much as he does Jewish people! It matters not if you are rich or poor, known or unknown, fat or skinny, smart or dumb, male or female, repentant or unrepentant—GOD LOVES YOU AND CHRIST DIED FOR YOUR SINS! Did you hear that dear reader? CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS!!! Let our emphasis in the churches be primarily upon fulfilling THE GREAT COMMISSION, and not being sidetracked by THE GREAT DECEPTION of present-day Israel!
there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall
teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies...” —2nd Peter 2:1
