I WILL MAKE JERUSALEM
A BURDENSOME STONE

"In that day will I WILL MAKE JERUSALEM A BURDENSOME STONE for all people ..."

- Zech. 12:3]

PART 1: IF THE CHURCH IS THE "NEW ISRAEL
OF GOD, WHAT IS MODERN-DAY ISRAEL?

INTRODUCTION

To reiterate quickly what we said in our last article, "I Tell You a Wonderful Secret about Israel and the Chosen of God," God has a program for both the heavens and the earth, the purpose of which is to ultimately manifest His glory and authority in both spheres.

Lewis Sperry Chafer, founder and first president of Dallas Theological Seminary, writes:

"... throughout the ages God is pursuing two distinct purposes: one related to the earth with earthly people and earthly objectives [Israel] ... while the other is related to heaven with heavenly people and heavenly objectives [the Church]..."

At the heart of God's program, then, is the aim of establishing His authority in:

  1. The earth through Israel  and

  2. The heavens through the Church.  [Please see Chapter VI of the New Antipas Papers, "The Distinction between Israel and the Church."]

To accomplish this purpose, God has labored over a space of some 4,000 years, beginning first with Israel, and ending finally with the Church. In each time frame, God dealt primarily with only one entity: first Israel, and then the Church. For the first 2,000 years, from Abraham to Christ, God labored with Israel, building it up and shaping it as a corporate entity; then He seemingly put Israel "on the shelf," and concentrated on the Church [from Pentecost to the present]. [Please see Chapter IX of the New Antipas Papers, "The Course and Character of the Last Days."]

Now the so-called "Church Age" is at last all but finished - and like some great master-craftsman, God is ready to put down His tools, and - for the first time - raise BOTH Israel and the Church up together in order to establish His rule in both the heavens and the earth. [We URGE you to see Part 4 of Chapter VIII in the New Antipas Papers, "The Two Witnesses" and Part 5, "Parables and Ciphers;" in addition, we URGE you to see Chapter X of the New Antipas Papers, "The 144,000 and the Last Half of the Seventieth Week." Please also see our article, "Israel: In That Day There Shall Stand Up A Root Of Jesse That Shall Be an Ensign For The People."]

ISRAEL IS AS CRITICAL TO GOD'S "PLAN AND
PURPOSE IN THE AGES" AS IS THE CHURCH

IT IS HERE - PRECISELY HERE - THAT WE CAN AT LENGTH BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND HOW CRITICAL ISRAEL IS TO GOD'S "PLAN AND PURPOSE IN THE AGES:" The fact is, ISRAEL IS AS CRITICAL TO GOD'S "PLAN AND PURPOSE IN THE AGES" AS IS THE CHURCH. [Please see our last article, "I Tell You a Wonderful Secret about Israel and the Chosen of God."]

With that fact in view, we can begin to appreciate how serious a thing anti-Semitism is - no matter how subtly it is presented, whether as the result of the "Illuminati Myth" or the so-called "Secular-Humanist Conspiracy." [Please see our article, "A Fourth Illusion Broken: Dealing with the so-called Illuminati Myth and Its Underlying Anti-Semitism."]

THE NAKED TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS, ANTI-SEMITISM STRIKES AT THE VERY HEART OF GOD'S "PLAN & PURPOSE IN THE AGES" - and, thus, it is not without reason that the Bible warns us that God will -

"Curse him that curseth thee [that is to say, Israel] ..." [Genesis 12:3]

COVENANT THEOLOGY LEADS INEVITABLY
TO AN ANTI-SEMITIC "MINDSET"

And not only that, we can begin to comprehend how dangerous a thing "Covenant Theology" is. The fact is, if one embraces the tenets of "Covenant Theology," one cannot help but embrace anti-Semitism on some level. Take, for example, the teaching of the Presbyterian Church on Israel:

"... the crucifixion was Israel's most heinous crime against God. It was at this point - their treatment of the Messiah - that Israel failed the most miserably to keep the conditions laid down in God's promise to her ... What was the penalty for Israel's failure to meet the conditions laid down by Jehovah, and which climaxed in her heinous treatment of the Messiah? God withdrew his presence from Israel as a nation ... The Jewish state come to a bitter end in A.D. 70. Nor will national Israel ever again be a fruitful nation ..."

Think about the tone of these words: [1] heinous crime against God, [2] heinous treatment of the Messiah, [3] God withdrew His presence from Israel, [4] Israel will never again be a fruitful nation! These words are certainly not calculated to produce a love for the Jewish people, that's for sure!

And that's the teaching of the Presbyterians, hardly what one would call a radical right-wing anti-Semitic group like the Aryan Nations.

NOTE: Now, there can be no doubt that Israel "failed miserably" to keep the conditions of the Mosaic Covenant. But Israel's standing before God is NOT dependent upon the Mosaic Covenant or on her "miserable treatment of the Messiah," but on the "IMMUTABILITY" of God's "COVENANT TO ABRAHAM" which was reinforced and expanded upon by the "PALESTINIAN COVENANT," the "DAVIDIC COVENANT," and the "NEW COVENANT." [Please see Part 1 ("A Commitment to Literalism") and Part 2 ("The Unconditional Covenants") of Chapter VI in the New Antipas Papers for a complete exposition on the "IMMUTABILITY" of God's Covenants with Israel.]

IF THE CHURCH IS THE "NEW ISRAEL OF
GOD," THEN WHAT IS MODERN-DAY ISRAEL?

Now stop and think about what this kind of thinking implies for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel: IF the church was indeed the "New Israel of God" [as Covenant theologians postulated] it stood to reason that after the establishment of the church [and the greater "reality" that the church seemed to represent], the Jewish community should have been absorbed into the church, and/or absorbed into the nations into which they had been dispersed. After all, was not Israel merely a "type" or "shadow" of the church, and when the reality appears, should not the "type" or the "shadow" disappear, there being no further need of it? But this was not what occurred.

And not only that, but the Jewish community - despite the fact of its dispersion - gradually developed into an astonishingly tight-knit, well organized, and - in some countries - influential community whose organization and arrangement transcended national boundaries; a community that was international in scope at a time of growing particularism, provincialism, and insularism.

WHAT POSSIBLE EXPLANATION COULD THERE BE FOR
THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE?

What possible explanation could there be for such a phenomenon?

The continued existence of the Jewish people seemed to defy explanation by any normal standard. And that was the rub! - It could not be explained on a normal or rational basis. No people had ever before survived so long as a separate entity after losing their national homeland and being dispersed so widely.

The explanation for such a phenomenon could only be accounted for on some supernatural ground. But if this was so - and all seem to agree that it was - was the supernatural presence that so obviously seemed to surround the Jewish people malevolent or benevolent?

IF THE CHURCH IS OF GOD, THEN
ISRAEL MUST BE OF THE DEVIL

For Covenant theologians, there could be only one answer to such a question, and that answer was but the natural consequence of Covenant Theology: It was an "either/or" situation that the church had created for itself in relation to Israel and the Jewish people - either the church, OR Israel and the Jewish people. There was no middle ground.

And if one believed that the church was of God, then the presence which surrounded the Jewish people, and which empowered their continued existence beyond all reason, had to be of the Devil.

There could be no other answer!! And once this conclusion was reached, than everything else followed - from the stories of their "apostasy" to the "Judeo-Masonic world-conspiracy" and the Illuminati - ALL OF WHICH ARE - AT THEIR ROOT - ANTI-SEMITIC IN NATURE;  ALL OF THEM!

PART 2: THE PRESENT-DAY ESCHATOLOGY OF
COVENANT THEOLOGY: "DOMINIONISM"

DOMINIONISM

There have been over the years a wide range of eschatologies connected to Covenant Theology - again, all of them anti-Semitic to one degree or another. The most popular expression of Covenant eschatology today is an eschatology called "Dominionism."

NOTE: There are, of course, other eschatologies connected to Covenant Theology besides "Dominionism;" most of them, however, have fallen into disrepute because of the "re-gathering" of the Jewish people back to their ancient homeland - an event that NONE of the eschatologies that predate the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948 took into account. "Dominionism" is the only eschatology linked to Covenant Theology that accounts for the re-establishment of the state of Israel.

FINALLY, IT MUST BE NOTED IN THIS CONNECTION THAT THE ESCHATOLOGY OF "DOMINIONISM" IS PRECISELY THE ESCHATOLOGY EMBRACED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM (ICEJ) - THE MOST PROMINENT CHRISTIAN GROUP IN ISRAEL TODAY. While the ICEJ has no official status with Israel insofar as its claim to be an "embassy" for the evangelical Christian community is concerned, it enjoys what it calls an "open door" relationship with government leaders in Israel. It is located in the former Chilean Embassy in Jerusalem and has a full-time staff of over FIFTY people with many more times that number as part-time workers. The ICEJ's annual "Feast of Tabernacles" is considered an important event by the Israeli government - so important, in fact, that it has been attended by EVERY Prime Minister since 1980. [Please see our article, "The Superman Theology of the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles."]

Dominionism is not an eschatology that is well organized or very well thought-out - and most certainly it is not based on any kind of systematic treatment of the Word. Indeed, one will search in vain for any theological coherence in it at all. Within the world created by this system, one will find very few people arguing over its details. There are no particulars, only broad generalizations and a good deal of talk about a coming "Great Revival," "taking back territory from the enemy," "demonic principalities and powers," the "Coming of Christ in oneself" [i.e., the "Grail Quest" and the "search for inner purity"], and that kind of thing. [Please see our articles, "Luciferic Christianity," "The God-Men of America's New World Order System" and "Phallus Worship and the New Charismatics."]

Jewel van der Merwe of Discernment Magazine, writes that "Dominionists" are actively pushing a belief system which prophesies that " ... (1) the greatest revival the church has ever known [is about to occur]; (2) the greatest baptism of the Spirit the Church has ever experienced [will shortly happen]; (3) the greatest army [Joel's Army] distinguished by invincibility, immortality and divinity [will be raised up]; (4) the greatest purging ... in the history of the church [will shortly begin]; (5) the greatest ministry - the Prize of all Ages [is about to break forth]; and (6) the greatest miracles, supernatural signs and wonders far exceeding that of the Apostles and Prophets of old [will shortly take place]." ALL OF THIS, OF COURSE, IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY UNSCRIPTURAL!

NOTE: The list of those who today embrace "Dominionism" (and, incidentally, the concomitant belief that America is God's great "Redeemer Nation") reads like a "Who's Who" of American pastors and leaders including such Christian "luminaries" as Charles Stanley, the late D. James Kennedy, Tim LaHaye, the late John Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz, C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye, Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Richard Roberts, Pat Robertson, the late Jerry Falwell, Chuck Colson, Jack Hayford, David Yonggi Cho [yes, even Cho who isn't an American, but a Korean], Robert Stearns, Mike Bickle, Reuven Doron, Che Ahn, Frank Hammond, Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, John Eckhardt, Bobbie Byerly, Dutch Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso, Carlos Annacondia, Claudio Freidzon, Roger Mitchell, Ted Haggart, Paul Cain, Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Kingsley Fletcher, Jim Laffoon, Barbara Wentroble, ad infinitum.

NONE OF THESE THINGS HAVE
ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SCRIPTURES

Again, none of these things [i.e., the "Great Revival," "taking back territory," etc.] have any connection with the Scriptures. Indeed, they are at TOTAL variance with them - and that's because the Scriptures point unswervingly to an apostatized church at the "end of days" that has fallen into "deception" [Matt. 24:21-25]. There is no "Great Revival" prophesied by the Bible. Indeed, Paul says,

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY [i.e., an apostasy] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

"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, showing himself that he is God." [2 Thess. 2:3-4]

THE GREAT "FALLING AWAY"

What's Paul saying here? Well, it's plain enough! - He is saying that BEFORE the "man of sin" [i.e., the Antichrist] is revealed there will be a FALLING AWAY of Christians from the faith. That is what the word "apostasy" means - to "fall away."

Unbelievers can't "fall away" from the faith - they were never there to begin with. To believe so is tantamount to saying that someone who is on the first floor of a building can "fall away" from the building's tenth story even though he has never been there. It's impossible! It's an absurdity!

This may not be what Christians today want to hear - but this is certainly what the Scriptures say. Indeed, the Lord Himself says that when He returns to wind up this present evil age, the overall state of the planet will be very similar to the time of Noah just prior to the flood [Lk. 17:26-27], and the time of Sodom just before the cataclysm that destroyed that city [Lk. 17:28-30]. The picture here, in both illustrations, is of a wholly sinful, unconcerned world, carrying on its business without a care to know spiritual truth [cf. Gen. 6:5, 11-12 and Gen. 18:20-21].

Moreover, THE CONCOMITANT PREMISE BEHIND CHRISTIAN DOMINIONISM - i.e., THAT THE CHURCH CAN CONQUER THE WORLD "FOR CHRIST AND THE CHURCH" USING THE MILITARY MIGHT OF THE UNITED STATES - is so TOTALLY and COMPLETELY absurd that only apostates of the worst kind could possibly accept such a supposition - which is EXACTLY what people such as C. Peter Wagner, Charles Stanley, the late D. James Kennedy, Tim LaHaye, the late John Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz, C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye, Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, etc. are - i.e., APOSTATES.

DOMINIONISM: STEP BY STEP

Precisely because "Dominionism" is not an eschatology that is well organized or very well thought-out - and most certainly not an eschatology that is based on any kind of systematic treatment of the Word - it UTTERLY fails to take into account the distinction between the Gog / Magog War [which will occur at the beginning of the Tribulation] and the Battle of Armageddon [which will occur at the end of the Tribulation Period]. THIS MISTAKE HAS VERY PROFOUND CONSEQUENCES FOR ISRAEL INSOFAR AS THE "END OF DAYS" IS CONCERNED [see Part 4 of this article (below), "The Pivotal Role Israel Plays in Dominionist Eschatology."]

NOTE: That there exists a clear distinction between the Gog/Magog War and Armageddon there can be no doubt! As J. Dwight Pentecost has pointed out, there are a number of considerations which make it very plain that we are dealing with two great wars rather than one during the Tribulation.

  • In the Gog/Magog War, definite allies of Gog are mentioned as opposing Israel - "Magog," "Mescheck," "Tubal," "Gomer" [TURKEY], Ethiopia, Libya, [see Ezekiel 38] and EGYPT [see Daniel 11:42], while at Armageddon all nations are engaged against Jerusalem [Joel 3:2; Zeph. 3:8; Zech. 12:3; and 14:2].

  • Gog comes from the North [Ezek. 38:6, 15], while at Armageddon, the armies come from out of the whole earth.

  • Gog is the head of the armies at his invasion [Ezek. 38:15], but at Armageddon, the Beast is at the head of the invasion [Rev. 19:19].

  • There is a protest against Gog's invasion [Ezek. 38:13], but at Armageddon there is no such protest because all the nations of the earth have joined themselves with the Beast in his attack against Jerusalem.

  • Gog is overthrown by divine intervention through the convolutions of nature [Ezek. 38:22], but the armies at Armageddon are destroyed by the sword which goes out of Christ's mouth [Rev. 19:15].

  • Gog's armies array themselves in the open fields [Ezek. 39:5], while at Armageddon they are seen in the city of Jerusalem.

  • Gog's armies are destroyed outside of Jerusalem on the mountains and in the valleys [Ezek. 39:2-4], while the Beast and his armies are destroyed in the city of Jerusalem itself [Zech. 12:2; 14:2].

  • The Lord calls for assistance in executing judgment on Gog [Ezek. 38:21], while at Armageddon He is viewed as treading the winepress alone [Rev. 19:15; Isaiah 63:3-6].

  • The invasion by Gog will be sudden and will come with relatively little warning [Ezek. 38:11], while Armageddon will be no sudden and unexpected event.

Thus, as Dwight Pentecost has suggested,

"Two diverse movements [wars] must be acknowledged."

The Dominionist eschatological model is as follows:

  1. The world is plunged into a time of political and spiritual crisis, one which threatens the world with chaos and the church with destruction.

  2. The Lord brings revival to the church.

  3. This revival results in the end of the church's divisions and the rule of the "apostles and prophets."

  4. The "Gospel of the Kingdom" is preached in America first; America is "revived" as the "Redeemer Nation," which leads ultimately to the conversion and eventual conquest by the "Redeemer Nation" [i.e., America] of the world.

NOTE: The Bible, however, indicates that the condition of the world just prior to Christ's return will be so bad that the Lord is constrained to ask rhetorically,

"... when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" [Luke 18:8]

  1. THIS RESULTS IN THE CONVERSION OF ISRAEL

  2. After the conversion of Israel, the Lord returns.

NOTE: Please take note of the fact that in the dominionist model THE LORD CANNOT RETURN UNTIL AFTER ISRAEL IS CONVERTED.

THE BELIEF THAT THE WORLD IS BREATHLESSLY
WAITING FOR AMERICA TO TAKE "DOMINION" IS ABSURD

Naturally enough, the belief by American Christians that the peoples and nations of the world are waiting breathlessly for America to take dominion of the world (see step #4 above) is absurd.  To the peoples and nations of the world, America is NOT God's great "Redeemer Nation," but a -

"... BEAST, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly ... [with] great iron teeth ... that ... devours and brake in pieces, and stamps the ... [people of the earth] with its feet ..." [Dan. 7:7] [Please see our movie, GREED IS GOOD.]

Come on now, is it really that hard to see? Is it that difficult to understand why people outside the United States despise America, a country that has - as we have shown on numerous other occasions - attempted to overthrow more than 40 democratically elected governments since the end of World War II; and that has tried to crush more than 30 populist-nationalist movements struggling to assert their own legitimate political and human rights over and against intolerably corrupt, brutal dictatorships [most of which had been installed by the American government] during the same period of time?

And is it really that hard to comprehend the feelings of detestation and hostility that people would have towards a nation that has subjected most of the world to "client-state" status in the service of American multinational corporations like the United Fruit Company [now Dole] in Central America; Exxon / Mobil Corporation in the Middle East; Nike Corporation in Malaysia; Rockefeller corporate interests in Brazil and Argentina, etc., and that has - as a result - condemned the people of these nations to lives of grinding poverty, unrelenting agony and hopeless despair? [Please see our articles, "The American Empire: The Corporate / Pentagon / CIA / Missionary Archipelago" "Working Conditions in the Third World," "The Third World As A Model For The New World Order" and "Lee Kyang: The Rich and the Poor! God and America."]

AMERICAN EVANGELICALS MAY BE BLIND TO ALL THIS, BUT THE REST OF THE WORLD ISN'T! - AND THEY'RE NOT WAITING AROUND WITH OPEN ARMS FOR A CHANCE TO BECOME ANOTHER SLAVE-STATE IN AMERICA'S "NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM."

No! - Most of these peoples and nations will fight against being made to grovel at America's feet. They want no part of it. But in the religio-political system that is now beginning to evolve around America's "New World Order System," rebels against this system will be made to appear as REBELS AGAINST GOD.

NOTE: No doubt, as we have indicated in numerous other articles, we are in an "In-Between Time" insofar as the development of this system is concerned; but this "In-Between Time" will not last forever, and the process towards a Christo-Fascist state will ultimately resume. [Please see our articles, "Things Aren't Always What They Appear to Be" and "A Disaster Is Stalking Obama in the Middle East [Gaining Perspective on the In-Between Time]."]

PART 3: THE FEROCIOUS NATURE OF
COVENANT ESCHATOLOGY [DOMINIONISM]

OPPOSING AMERICA IS
TANTAMOUNT TO OPPOSING GOD

In the "New World Order," opposing America will be tantamount to opposing God. Think about it! - Isn't that how most American evangelicals (i.e., "Dominionists") will take it? Isn't that what someone like John Hagee will say? - who like the nincompoop he really is thinks that the AntiChrist will come out of Romania! And it's not just Hagee, but countless others. These are the blind leading the blind! - all because they stubbornly refuse to see the truth about the United States that the rest of the world - believers and unbelievers alike - so plainly see. [Please see our articles, "America Vs Europe," "The American Empire," "In Search Of Babylon! What Does The Bible Say?" "Base World: The Need for Perspective as the U.S. Slides into Chaos," "'A Dreadful Nation;' An 'Overflowing Scourge:' The Rise Of U.S. Nuclear Superiority," and "Reducing Europe To The Status Of Greece In The Days Of Rome."]

And one should not underestimate the ferocity that will be unleashed on those who rebel against the American New World Order System. For instance, take the ominous words of John Eckhardt, one of the most prominent leaders in today's "Prophets and Apostles Movement:"

"God has a plan and purpose He will fulfill ... NOTHING WILL STAND IN HIS WAY... God calls the RAVENOUS BIRD OF PREY [which Eckhardt says is the "Apostolic Church"] to execute His purposes ... The ravenous bird is the Hebrew word for ayit, meaning a hawk. It also means to swoop down upon." [Please see our articles, "The Birth Of A Christian Police-State," "The Watchers Are Watching You," "We Are All Being Played For Suckers" and "When Fascism Comes to America."]

Eckhardt continues:

"... The hawk symbolizes sharpness, keen vision and quickness. It represents discernment and insight into the plans and purposes of God. The hawk is a swift bird that SUDDENLY SEIZES HIS PREY. It is a ravenous bird. Ravenous means extremely hungry, voracious or greedy for gratification."

And this is how Eckhardt pictures the church? - as a VORACIOUS, GREEDY BIRD OF PREY; bird of prey that will seize and devour its enemies. What kind of Bible is Eckhardt reading out of?

Then there are the words of Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue:

"I want you to just let a wave of INTOLERANCE wash over you. I want you to let a wave of HATRED wash over you. Yes, HATE IS GOOD ... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism."

HATE IS GOOD? Is that what Terry is saying? How does one square that with the words of Christ when He said:

"Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you." [Matthew 5:44] ?

[Please see our articles, "Apostasy: Christianity In The Service Of A 'Religio-Political-Corporate-Terrorist'," "Hardening Our Hearts Against God: Becoming Prisoners Of A Pathology Of Hate" and "Today's Church: Making Zombies Out Of Christians."]

WHAT THEN IS THE STANDARD
BY WHICH ONE WILL BE JUDGED?

Now, one must understand something here! - the standard by which one will be judged by God in the "End of Days" is not all that high. One is being asked simply to differentiate between the MURDEROUS kind of Christianity that the church of Charles Stanley, Tim LaHaye, the late John Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz, C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye, Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Richard Roberts, Pat Robertson, Chuck Colson, Jack Hayford, etc. proclaim (on the one hand) and the simple Gospel of the "PRINCE OF PEACE" (on the other hand).

Where is the difficulty in that?

IF YOU CHOOSE GOD YOU
WILL BE LABELED A WITCH

Of course, there will be a price to be paid for those who choose the Jesus of the Gospels. Indeed, one runs the very great risk of being labeled a WITCH! For instance, John Eckhardt claims that those who oppose the direction of the church today [i.e., the "church in dominion"] are controlled by a spirit of WITCHCRAFT. He goes on to say,

"One of the signs of WITCHCRAFT operating and infiltrating a church is the inability of the people to OBEY the truth [Of course, this is "truth" as defined by Eckhardt, Wagner, Doron, Ryles, Joyner, etc.] Disobedience and rebellion are always present wherever there is WITCHCRAFT [ipso facto, anyone who opposes the teachings of these men - i.e., who is "disobedient" and "rebellious" insofar as the so-called "truth" they are preaching - is a WITCH]." [Again, please see our articles, "Luciferic Christianity" and "The God-Men of America's New World Order System."]

"... The apostolic anointing [ruling] keeps us free from ... false teaching [and false teachers] ... THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WE NEED AN APOSTOLIC ANOINTING WITHIN THE CHURCH. This anointing deals with WITCHCRAFT... The apostolic anointing [ruling] prevents the enemy from stopping the flow of the Spirit." [Please see our article, "Today's Church: Making Zombies Out Of Christians: The Prophets and Apostles Movement."]

AND HOW IS THE RULE OF THE PROPHETS AND
APOSTLES GOING TO PREVENT WITCHCRAFT?

And how is the RULE of the "Apostles and Prophets Movement" going to prevent "false teachers" [meaning, once again, those who oppose the "New Apostolic Reformation"] from "ruining" the church. Eckhard gives a way:

"I like the way Paul dealt with WITCHCRAFT. He did not play around with it. He judged it with the power of God, CALLING DOWN BLINDNESS upon Elymas the sorcerer. THIS TYPE OF AUTHORITY AND JUDGMENT IS RETURNING TO THE CHURCH WITH THE RESTORATION OF APOSTOLIC MINISTRY ... With the restoration of the apostolic ministry, we will see the same manifestations return to the Church that we read about in the book of Acts: PEOPLE FALLING DOWN DEAD, sorcerers smitten with blindness, LEADERS BEING EATEN UP BY WORMS. This is not a pleasant picture, but the Lord will allow no man or woman to hinder ... [His moving] in these last days." [Once again, please see our articles, "Luciferic Christianity" and "The God-Men of America's New World Order System."]

Leaders being eaten up by worms? People falling down dead? - and I suppose that if the "Spirit" doesn't do it, the "Apostles and Prophets" will. THIS, OF COURSE, IS EXACTLY WHAT WILL HAPPEN! Jesus said:

"They shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the ... [churches], and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake." [Luke 21:12]

These are those about whom the Apostle John wrote in the Apocalypse:

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands ..." [Revelation 20:4]

It is here! It is precisely here that the church will be reaped; the good seed separated from the bad seed - AND IN ALL OF THIS, IT'S NOT WHAT ONE DECLARES HIMSELF TO BE, BUT WHAT ONE DEMONSTRATES HIMSELF TO BE. [Please see Chapter VIII of the New Antipas Papers, "Tribulation and Judgment."]

DEALING WITH ALL OPPOSITION

Moreover, as this kind of thinking takes hold - the kind that attributes opposition to the Apostate Church and America's "New World Order System" as WITCHCRAFT - it will spread out to encompass everyone. Everyone who opposes the "New World Order System" will be lumped together as "enemies of true religion and the state" - including those "residual lefties" around the world who continue to oppose America's "Free Enterprise System" - the rebels who fight the "American System" in Columbia, in Ecuador, in Peru, in Venezuela, in Guatemala, etc. [Please see our articles, "Chiapas: The Effect of the New World Order on the Poor," "Christians In Africa: Awake," "The Congo and American Greed" and "The Devil Was Here."]

Certainly these people will have to be dealt with. After all, in opposing America, these nations and peoples are opposing God. And in opposing Dole, Nike, Exxon-Mobil, Swift and Company, Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland, Monsanto, General Electric, Barrens Mining, Occidental Oil, Citicorp, Bank of America, Standard Oil, Texaco, etc. they are opposing God's servants in the world today, "little angels" whose sole purpose is, as Bechtel's corporate statement declares, "working with ... local communities throughout the world to help improve their standard of living and their quality of life" - never mind the fact that what they are really up to is gouging the poor of the world for all they can get, AND HANG THOSE WHO GET IN THE WAY.

And so - in the name or "right religion" and "free enterprise," apostate Christianity and America will go forth "conquering and to conquer" - so that, in the end, "... every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess" that America and the "Free Enterprise System should be worshipped and adored. Hence the words in the Apocalypse -

"And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: AND HE WENT FORTH CONQUERING, AND TO CONQUER." [Rev. 6:2]

PART 4: THE PIVOTAL ROLE ISRAEL
PLAYS IN DOMINIONIST ESCHATOLOGY

AND WHAT ABOUT ISRAEL?

And there is something more! - What will the APOSTATE church of America's New World Order System do to tiny Israel when she refuses to CONVERT after the Gog/Magog War?  Remember, that's what step 5 in the "dominionists" time table calls for:

  1. The world is plunged into a time of political and spiritual crisis, one which threatens the world with chaos and the church with destruction.

  2. The Lord brings revival to the church.

  3. This revival results in the end of the church's divisions and the rule of the "apostles and prophets."

  4. The "Gospel of the Kingdom" is preached in America first; America is "revived" as the "Redeemer Nation," which leads ultimately to the conversion and eventual conquest by the "Redeemer Nation" [i.e., America] of the world.

NOTE: Once again, we remind you that the Bible indicates that the condition of the world just prior to Christ's return will be a good one (as pictured above), but will be so bad that the Lord is constrained to ask rhetorically,

"... when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" [Luke 18:8]

  1. THIS RESULTS IN THE CONVERSION OF ISRAEL

  2. After the conversion of Israel, the Lord returns.

Thus, according to the "dominionist" model, Israel has to CONVERT for the Lord to come back. That's what people such as Derrick Prince, Reuven Doron and countless other "dominionists" like them posit.

The question is, what happens if Israel refuses to convert? And they won't convert, at least not on the timetable that the dominionist model calls for! Keep in mind, the Scriptures teach that NATIONAL salvation for Israel will not come to the Jewish people until - "THEY SHALL LOOK UPON HIM WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED" [Zech 12:10], and that won't happen until Christ's Second Coming - approximately seven years after the Gog/Magog War.

Until then, the Jews AS A NATION will remain in unbelief. THIS DOESN'T MEAN, OF COURSE, THAT MANY JEWS AS INDIVIDUALS WON'T BE SAVED [as they have been doing for centuries] DURING THE TRIBULATION PERIOD - i.e., that seven year period of time following the Gog/Magog War. Many, no doubt, will as a result of those faithful Jews in Israel who unselfishly and at great sacrifice to themselves bear witness to Jesus in the Holy Land.

But the conversion of Israel AS A NATION - which the Bible prophesizes - will have to wait for the end of the Tribulation period - when Christ returns! At which time, the Bible says:

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the SPIRIT OF GRACE [i.e., UNMERITED FAVOR] and of supplications: and THEY SHALL LOOK UPON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED [very obviously the Lord], and they shall mourn for him [i.e., Jesus], as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness [i.e., great sorrow] for him [i.e., Christ, whom they rejected], as one that is in bitterness [i.e., great sorrow] for his firstborn.

"In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

"And one shall say unto him, WHAT ARE THESE WOUNDS IN THINE HANDS? Then he shall answer, THOSE WITH WHICH I WAS WOUNDED IN THE HOUSE OF MY FRIENDS." [Please see Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1, 6]

But, again, this will only happen at the moment of Christ's Second Coming - and if that's the case, it does violence to the dominionists' time line.

DOING VIOLENCE TO THE
DOMINIONISTS' TIME-LINE

In this connection, it is important to bear in mind that most "Dominionists" don't really believe in a Rapture.

They are PRECISELY what their name implies: "dominionists" - people who believe that the church must take DOMINION on the earth BEFORE [I say again, BEFORE] Christ returns - which, of course implies that the church must not only unite and subdue the earth BEFORE the Lord returns, but also THAT ISRAEL MUST BE CONVERTED.

Reuven Doron explains:

"The very nation [Israel] that once gave birth [to the church] now is in need to be birthed by another [so that Israel - acting together and in consort with the church - can usher in the Return of Christ]. Who will provide it? [i.e., Israel's rebirth] ... This premise of spiritual revival still hinges upon the rising and completion of the ministry of the prophetic 'Son of Man' company [i.e., the united, glorified church under the leadership of the 'Prophets and Apostles' - see step #3 above] ... Today the Lord is calling forth a Son of Man Company to corporately prophecy and speak to Israel's lifeless, hopeless white bones until the vision is completed ... THE CHURCH IS BIRTHING ISRAEL."

What Doron is saying here is that as the church is "perfected" by the ministry of the "Apostles and Prophets," it will take its place over Israel's lifeless body, and prophesy unto it, and it will be "rebirthed" [i.e., Israel will convert to Christianity]. Presumably this will occur shortly after the Gog/Magog War when Christians [so-called] throughout the world will gather in the Holy Land to celebrate "Christ's" [really, AntiChrist's] supposed victory over Islam. [Please see Part 4 of Chapter XIV in The New Antipas Papers, "Making Israel and the Church Servants in the Household of the Devil;" Please also see Chapter XV, "The Gog / Magog War."]

NOTE: Reuven and Mary Lou Doron were removed from ministry a few years ago as a result of "SIN." [We are left to wonder what the nature of that "sin" was - whether it was of a "moral" nature, or whether it was because they somehow or other "challenged" the teachings of their "superiors" in the movement.] They have now evidently been restored to ministry; to that end, the "Restoration Team" responsible for their "discipline" issued the following statement:

"Dear brothers and sisters,

"Nearly three and a half years have passed since Reuven and Mary Lou Doron departed from public ministry and submitted to a restoration process within the Body of Christ. After the first year, the Restoration Team was reconfigured under the leadership of Larry and Kathy Alberts of Fathers and Families Together, with advisory input from international leaders from the United States and Israel. Now, after almost two and a half additional years to complete the process, Larry is pleased to make the following announcement:

"We confirm that the Dorons have concluded the restoration journey as they have been requested:

  • Fulfilling their obligations and commitments to the team, including absence from public ministry, ongoing counseling with University of the Family, and regular accountability in prescribed areas;

  • Actively embracing the Lord's own discipline and nurture;

  • Reaching for, obtaining, and abiding in His grace for healing; and

  • Walking uprightly with each other, with Him, and with the Body of Christ, in an observable and noteworthy manner over a sustained and agreed upon period of time.

"Therefore,

"The Restoration Team now commends the Dorons, by faith, to the Lord's grace for a new season of service and fruitfulness. This means that:

"The Dorons affirm their commitment to continue this daily walk of healing and service for the rest of their days as a work of faith and growth in grace and obedience. To safeguard that intention, the Dorons have voluntarily submitted themselves and their renewed work of ministry to an accountability relationship as part of the Regional Team of Fathers and Families Together.

"The Restoration Team, therefore, confirms to the Body of Christ that this chapter of discipline, healing, and restoration is successfully concluded, and commits Reuven and Mary Lou into the Lord's hands for the rest of their journey. We want to acknowledge with gratitude the many faithful friends who prayed for the Dorons throughout this process. Let's join with them now in gladly rejoicing at having such tremendous cause to celebrate before God for this marvelous restoration.

"Sincerely in our Lord,

"Larry J. and Kathy A. Alberts

"For the Restoration Team with special thanks to the University of the   Family (Author: Larry and Kathy Alberts)"

[WHILE WE ARE HAPPY THAT THE DORONS WERE "FULLY RESTORED" TO "MINISTRY," WE WONDER IF THE SAME KIND OF CONSIDERATION WILL BE GRANTED BY THEM TO THOSE WHO OPPOSE THE "RULE OF THE PROPHETS AND APOSTLES" - ANTIPAS]

EXPANDING ON WHAT DORON SAYS ...

Expanding on what Doron says, Rick Joyner of MorningStar Ministries says,

"The Jews have historically represented the greatest test for the gospel ... In a sense, Jews are the 'ACID TEST' of our message. UNTIL THE CHURCH COMES TO THE SPIRITUAL STATURE [MATURITY] WHERE SHE PROVOKES THE JEW TO JEALOUSY, WE HAVE NOT YET ATTAINED TO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN CALLED."

This statement - "until the church comes to the spiritual stature [maturity] where she provokes the Jew to jealousy, we have not yet attained to what we have been called" - says a lot about the mindset of dominionists such as C. Peter Wagner, John Eckhardt, Derrick Prince, Dutch Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso, Carlos Annacondia, etc.

Plainly, what it says is that the CONVERSION OF THE JEWS is the church's "PROOF POSITIVE" [presumably to Christ] that she has made herself ready, AND THE LORD CAN NOW RETURN - kind of like passing a driver's examination to prove to the state that one has at last obtained the skills and knowledge to drive a car.

Think about that: THE CONVERSION OF THE JEWS IS THE "ACID TEST" THAT THE CHURCH HAS BEEN "PERFECTED." That's pretty heavy! - and it indicates the importance that the dominionists attach to the Jews' conversion. Joyner continues:

"The Jews were 'hardened' TO MAKE THEM THE HARDEST TO REACH. In this way, they have become the barometer of humanity, reflecting the overall condition of the state of man. When the gospel is preached that grafts the 'natural branches' back into the tree, the church and Israel will then be able to reach the whole world. This is why Paul said that the gospel should be preached 'to the Jew first'. This was not just out of favoritism, but because the Jew represents the greatest challenge of the gospel, and one which we must have ... Even so, our relationship to the Jews is not meant to be a stumbling block, but a stepping stone ... The final joining together of both 'into one new man' ... resulting in the healing of all spiritual and cultural wounds. WHEN THE CHURCH AND ISRAEL HAVE BEEN GRAFTED TOGETHER ... THE TIME OF "THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS" [i.e., THE LORD'S SECOND COMING] MAY BEGIN."

THE WORST THING TO
BE IS A JILTED LOVER

In other words, "the time of the restoration of all things" can't begin until Israel is saved; but once again I must remind you that the prophet Zechariah says that won't occur until Christ returns, not before. [Zech. 12:10 - 13:1] Nevertheless, Christian dominionists are expecting the Jews to convert in order to FACILITATE the Lord's Return.

What will happen when these hopes are dashed, as they most certainly will be. [cf. Zech. 12:10 - 13:1] WOW! - THE WRATH THAT WILL FALL ON ISRAEL AS A RESULT WILL BE HORRIBLE! THERE IS, AFTER ALL, NOTHING SO HATEFUL AND MEAN-SPIRITED AS A JILTED LOVER - "HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A LOVER SCORNED!"

And more than that, what will Christian dominionists think when Israel refuses not only to convert, but rebuilds the temple, excludes any Christian participation in its rebuilding and in the subsequent revived Temple service, and then - as if to add insult to injury - CLAIMS THAT SHE [i.e., ISRAEL] - AND NOT THE CHURCH - IS GOD'S REPRESENTATIVE ON EARTH? What will happen then? Think of the wrath that this will provoke among Christian dominionists!

The gloves will come off, the smiles will disappear, and the knives will surely be unsheathed then. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO LUTHER WHEN HE WAS "JILTED" BY THE JEWS AFTER THE REFORMATION - and you can be sure that it will happen again!

NOTE: William L. Shirer, in his book, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, wrote:

"No apologist can claim that Martin Luther bore his anti-Jewishness out of youthful naiveté', uneducation, or out of unfounded Christianity. On the contrary, LUTHER IN HIS YOUTH EXPRESSED A GREAT OPTIMISM ABOUT JEWISH CONVERSION TO CHRISTIANITY. BUT IN HIS LATER YEARS, LUTHER BEGAN TO REALIZE THAT THE JEWS WOULD NOT CONVERT TO HIS WISHES."

In his rage over the refusal of the Jews to convert, Luther wrote:

"They [Germany's rulers] must act like a good physician who, when gangrene has set in proceeds without mercy to cut, saw, and burn flesh, veins, bone, and marrow. Such a procedure must also be followed in this instance. Burn down their synagogues, forbid all that I enumerated earlier, force them to work, and deal harshly with them, as Moses did ...

"If this does not help we must drive them out [of Germany] like mad dogs."

Julius Streicher (one of Hitler's top henchmen and publisher of the anti-Semitic Der Sturmer) was asked during the Nuremberg trials if there were any other publications in Germany which treated the Jewish question in an anti-Semitic way. Streicher put it well:

"Dr. Martin Luther would very probably sit in my place in the defendants' dock today, if this book had been taken into consideration by the Prosecution. In the book The Jews and Their Lies, Dr. Martin Luther writes that the Jews are a serpent's brood and one should burn down their synagogues and destroy them ..."

THE JEWS: A FESTERING SORE TO THE COVENANT
ESCHATOLOGY OF PEOPLE LIKE REUVEN DORON

The very real fact of the matter is, after the Gog / Magog War, the continued existence of the Jewish people as a separate, distinct and UNBELIEVING entity OUTSIDE the church will have to be explained somehow - this isn't the way things were supposed to happen according to the "dominionist model." The presence of unconverted Jews in the Holy Land cannot help but be a festering sore to the dominionist eschatology of Reuven Doron, C. Peter Wagner, Cindy Jacobs, D. James Kennedy and the like.

Maybe if the Jews could just remain quiet and crawl away into some obscure corner of the world and stay there, perhaps that would be enough. But their continued presence in the Holy Land - where the church of James Ryle, Barbara Wentroble, Jack Hayford, Texe Marrs, etc. will be busy "setting up shop" after the Gog / Magog War- will be too much for "Dominionists" to countenance, especially in light of their (i.e., the Jews') REFUSAL to recognize the church's primacy!! It will directly challenge the "Dominionist" undergirding of the Apostate Church, and ipso facto, the authority of America's "New World Order System" which now - in the religious fervor and hype of the moment - has come to be undergirded by this theology. What to do?

WHAT TO DO?

The answer is simple enough! - Picture those Jews in the Holy Land who refuse to convert as agents of the Devil (after all, the church has been doing that for centuries and centuries). There certainly exists a large enough body of literature in the countless CONSPIRACY THEORIES about the Jews that abound in Christian circles to accommodate such thinking. [Please see our article, "A Fourth Illusion Broken: Dealing with the so-called Illuminati Myth and Its Underlying Anti-Semitism."]

THE DEVIL IS ANIMATING THE JEWS! - That must be the answer! The Jewish people's reluctance to surrender their Old Testament promises to the church is of the devil. That's it! And their refusal to accord the AntiChrist - who is by now ensconced in the Holy Land passing himself off as their "savior" - the deference and respect he thinks is due him for supposedly rescuing them from the "Islamic Horror," gives evidence to the fact of their hard-hearted and insensitive nature.

Very obviously, it would appear that conspiracy theories such as the famous Simonini fabrication, Biarritz, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, The International Jew, etc., and conspiracy-theorists such as Nesta Webster, the Abbe Barruel, Herman Goedsche, Gougenot des Mousseaux, Sergey Alexandrovich Nilus, Henry Ford, etc. were right about the Jews all along. The Jews MUST be a tribe of witches. Certainly "Prophets and Apostles" like John Eckhardt and James Ryles would have very little trouble in believing such a thing - after all, by Eckhardt's own testimony, those who refuse to recognize the authority of the church [so-called] are motivated by a spirit of WITCHCRAFT. That's what he says:

"... false teachers [meaning those who oppose "The New Apostolic Reformation"] carry a spirit of WITCHCRAFT."

"WITCHCRAFT?" - there's that word again! So you see, it's not just Doron and Joyner who banter that word around; it's ubiquitous in the lexicon of the "Dominionists."

Eckhardt continues:

"Among the dark spirits we must contend with today is a spirit of WITCHCRAFT... they relate to the Church's opposition today ... WITCHCRAFT is a major spirit that will challenge and attempt to stop the progress of the Church ..."

There's that word again. It's everywhere!!

BLOODLUST AGAINST THE JEWS

And so now it begins all over again - a new BLOODLUST against the Jews aggressively pushed by the APOSTATE CHURCH, and Christians [especially Jewish Christians] in Israel will be forced to take sides. Who are they going to side with? - the Apostate Church, or Israel? [Please see our article on the "The Messianic Jews: What Will They Do?" - BUT IN READING THIS ARTICLE, I SHOULD TELL YOU THAT I HAVE DISCOVERED RECENTLY THAT THERE ARE MANY MORE MESSIANIC CONGREGATIONS IN ISRAEL THAT ARE NOT PART OF THE "DOMINIONIST" MOVEMENT THAN I HAD AT FIRST REALIZED - see note below.]

By refusing to condemn their unconverted Jewish brethren, and standing against the rage of "Dominionists" such as Reuven Doron and the James Ryle MESSIANIC JEWS WHO ARE NOT PART OF THE "DOMINONIST" MOVEMENT IN ISRAEL WILL BE CONDEMNED ALONG WITH THEIR UNCOVERTED BRETHREN. THEY WILL BE ACCUSED OF ABANDONING CHRIST! - like the Conversos (Marranos) of Spain during the Inquisition.

NOTE: The terms "Marrano" and "Converso" were applied in Spain and Portugal during the Inquisition to the descendants of baptized Jews suspected of secret adherence to Judaism. Converso, from the Latin conversus, means literally "the converted." They were also called "New Christians." THESE WERE CHRISTIANS WHO - WHILE ACCEPTING CHRIST AS SAVIOR - CONTINUED TO OBSERVE THE PRECEPTS OF JUDAISM, much as many Messianics do in present-day Israel; for example, the kind of Jews one Israeli woman recently wrote us from Jerusalem about:

"I am in a position here to try and bring more truth to the Jewish people generally and to bring other 'messianic believers' into or should I say 'back to' the real gospel. There is a lot of 'mixture 'here. Too many have been swept up into another gospel and need to return to all the truth.

"I know a group of believers here who are the salt of the earth and keep the commandments (Torah ... the same one Y'shua kept  and not the rabbinical torah !!) who live a simple life and teach the pure gospel. The leader is very strong and is not afraid to speak out boldly about Y'shua to all Israel.

"I used to know a rabbi many years ago who lived in the desert here for almost 40 years and he spoke to all Israel who passed by his way about Y'shua being the Jewish Messiah....many orthodox rabbis and their students would come to him asking about 'this Y'shua'...He was able to show them from their own scriptures about Y'shua and they would receive Him gladly ! crying, laughing, singing and dancing and then would return to their yeshivot along with Y'shua ! you can see some of his videos on youtube if you google Simcha Perlmutter. There are around 10 videos available of him. He looks like an ultra orthodox rabbi....until he opens his mouth ! then you will hear him speak of Y'shua. .
 
"He was a wonderful teacher and expounded on the typical Jewish scriptures which probably only Jews would understand !

"He 'went home' in 2000."

PART 5: THE JEWS REFUSAL TO CONVERT
WILL BE A TESTIMONY AGAINST THE
FALSE CLAIMS OF THE APOSTATE CHURCH

IRONICALLY ...

Ironically - but, nonetheless, very plainly - the refusal of the Jews (and we speak here not of Jews as individuals, but of the Jewish nation - i.e., Israel) to convert to Christianity at the end of the Gog / Magog War will be a testimony against the false claims of the apostate church and the American New World Order System with which she (i.e., the apostate church) has partnered - and all the fury of the apostate church against Israel will not avail much insofar as the failure of their eschatological system is concerned. Moreover, IT WILL REVEAL THE MAN OF SIN WHO - "... sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (2 Thess. 2:3-4) FOR THE FRAUD HE REALLY IS.

Do you see this! -

"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

"For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

"Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

"For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. (Romans 11:33-36)

YES! - ISRAEL WILL IN DUE TIME
RECOGNIZE CHRIST AS SAVIOR AND KING

Yes! - the Jews, AS A NATION, will recognize Christ as their King! - however, not BEFORE Christ comes again at the close of the Gog / Magog War (which, in reality, is the BEGINNING of the Tribulation Period) - but WHEN He comes again at the END of the Tribulation Period at the time of the Battle of Armageddon:

'In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem ...

'And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

'And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the SPIRIT OF GRACE [i.e., UNMERITED FAVOR] and of supplications: and THEY SHALL LOOK UPON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED [very obviously the Lord], and they shall mourn for him [i.e., Jesus], as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness [i.e., great sorrow] for him [i.e., Christ, whom they rejected], as one that is in bitterness [i.e., great sorrow] for his firstborn.

 'In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon [where the Battle of Armageddon will be fought].

'And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

'The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;

'All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.'

'In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

'And one shall say unto him, WHAT ARE THESE WOUNDS IN THINE HANDS? Then he shall answer, THOSE WITH WHICH I WAS WOUNDED IN THE HOUSE OF MY FRIENDS'." [Please see Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1, 6]

[For those who desire a more complete picture of the events leading up to Israel's FULL restoration as a nation before God, please Chapter XV of the New Antipas Papers, "The Gog / Magog War;" please also see our article, "Israel: In That Day There Shall Stand Up A Root Of Jesse That Shall Be an Ensign For The People."]

BY REFUSING TO CONDEMNS
THEIR JEWISH BRETHREN ...

By their refusal to condemn their as yet "unconverted" Jewish brethren, the Messianic Jewish community in Jerusalem [and we speak here not of those Jews who have embraced the concepts of "Dominionism" such as Derrick Prince, Reuven Doron, etc. and who are connected to the false teachings linked to the International Christian Embassy In Jerusalem (most of whom are not really Jews by blood)], THEY WILL BY THEIR ACTIONS BE FOUND PROCLAIMING THAT THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FALSE CLAIMS OF THE APOSTATE CHURCH AND THE AMERICAN "NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM," AND THAT THEY OPPOSE THE OCCUPATION OF ISRAEL BY THE "OVERFLOWING SCOURGE" [Is. 28:18] WHO HAS -

"... pitched the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful Holy Mountain ..." [Daniel 11:45]

[Again, we URGE you to see Part 4 of Chapter VIII in the New Antipas Papers, "The Two Witnesses" and Part 5, "Parables and Ciphers;" in addition, we URGE you to see Chapter X of the New Antipas Papers, "The 144,000 and the Last Half of the Seventieth Week."
