CHAPTER XVI

AFTERMATH

It is now that the process begins insofar as the MANIFESTATION of the TRUE "sons of God" are concerned in both the church and Israel - a process that will separate the wheat from the chaff, the real from the unreal, those who have pretended to be the "Sons of God" and those who really are. And because of this great SEPARATION of the "REAL" from the "unreal," just and seeking men everywhere will be drawn to the "Kingdom of God" producing even in such a time, the "Great Harvest of the Lamb."

The Bible explains:

"For the earnest expectation of the ... [creation] waiteth for the MANIFESTATION of the sons of God." (Romans 8:19)

The Amplified Bible puts it this way:

"For [even the whole] creation ... waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God's sons [the Church] to be made known - waits for the REVEALING, the DISCLOSURE of their sonship." (Romans 8:19, Zondervan, the Amplified Bible )

In this Paul is saying that the whole universe is waiting for something to happen insofar as the "Kingdom of God" is concerned. It is waiting for the "sons of God" to be "REVEALED," "DISCLOSED," "MANIFESTED" - and the disclosure of the so-called 144,000 of Revelation chapter 7 and the 144,000 of Revelation chapter 14. [We URGE you once again to review the material on the 144,000 in Part 7 of Chapter VIII and all of chapter X.]

The testimony will be produced in the church by those who give themselves over to the promulgation and dissemination of the "GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM," and in Israel by those who renounce the alliance between Israel and Babylon and insist that Israel's refuge lies in the coming Messiah. (Please see Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1, 6)

PART 1: THE VALLEY OF DECISION

"PUT YE IN THE SICKLE, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.

"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

"The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. (Joel 3:13-15)

"MULTITUDES, MULLTITUDES IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION, FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR." The world is about ready to be reaped [Joel 3:13-15 (above)] - and you're Christianity is about to be tested: and after that, the JUDGMENT.

In this test, it's not what you claim to be that will count for anything, but what you really are: What you PROVE yourself to be. Again, the Bible says:

"NOT EVERY ONE THAT SAITH UNTO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." (Matt. 7:21)

AT THE TIME OF THE END

The Bible says that in the immediate aftermath of the Gog / Magog War, the AntiChrist shall -

"... come ... LIKE A WHIRLWIND and shall OVERFLOW and PASS OVER."

"He will also enter the Beautiful Land [i.e., Israel] ..." (Daniel 11:40-41)

The AntiChrist shall "... come ... LIKE A WHIRLWIND and shall OVERFLOW and PASS OVER. He will also enter the Beautiful Land [i.e., Israel] ..." (Daniel 11:40-41)

The Bible continues:

"... and many countries will fall; [i.e., many nations in the Middle East shall fall prey to him]

"Then he [i.e., Antichrist] will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt [which was formerly AntiChrist's ally] will not escape.

"And he [i.e., Antichrist] will GAIN CONTROL OVER THE HIDDEN TREASURES ... [no doubt, the oil reserves of the region]

"But rumors from the East and from the North will disturb him [i.e., Antichrist], and he [Antichrist] will go forth WITH GREAT WRATH to DESTROY and ANNIHILATE many. [i.e., shall go north in the direction of Europe, and east in the direction of Pakistan, Indonesia, etc.] (Dan. 11:41-44)

He [Antichrist] will go forth WITH GREAT WRATH to DESTROY and ANNIHILATE many

What's happened here? The Gog/Magog war is done, and AntiChrist, claiming that the victory is his, has entered the Holy Land, and from there he has "OVERFLOWED" (Dan. 11:40) into the Middle East in general with an ENORMOUSLY POWERFUL army.

And why has he come (the defense pact notwithstanding)? - to "GAIN CONTROL OVER THE HIDDEN TREASURES" of the area: the OIL. But as he seizes the oil, a protest against what he is doing is raised from a group of nations to the "north" and "east" of the Middle East (we are left to speculate on the names of those countries), and he sends forth his army in great wrath to "DESTROY" and "ANNIHILATE" those who oppose him. Then the Bible says that -

"... he [Antichrist] will pitch the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful Holy Mountain ..." (Daniel 11:45)


PART 2: THE GOG / MAGOG WAR PRODUCES
A MESSIAH-COMPLEX IN THE LEADER OF BABYLON

The victory that he (Antichrist) supposes to be his as a result of the Gog/Magog War has very obviously produced within him an extraordinary "MESSIAH-COMPLEX," so that now he seems to be saying with Lucifer, "Son of the Morning:" "... I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." (Is. 14:13-41)

The whole dark and sinister tenor of these verses indicates that something astonishing has happened to the AntiChrist. The victory that he supposes to be his as a result of the Gog/Magog War has very obviously produced within him an extraordinary "MESSIAH-COMPLEX," so that now he seems to be saying with Lucifer, "Son of the Morning:"

"... I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

"I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High." (Is. 14:13-41)

And the proof that he has been seized by a "MESSIAH-COMPLEX" is evidenced by the fact that the Bible says that after he has destroyed his enemies "to the north" and "to the east," he returns to the Holy Land to "... pitch the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful Holy Mountain ..." (Daniel 11:45) In other words, so taken is AntiChrist by his new "MESSIAH-COMPLEX" that he "establishes" himself in Jerusalem - the "City of God." Whatever doubts that he had had that he was "ON A MISSION FROM GOD" have now all been erased; and in this connection, it should be noted that Isaiah 28:18 seems to indicate that AntiChrist's "presence" in Israel has been transformed into a kind of military OCCUPATION - or how else should one understand that Israel is now "TRODDEN DOWN" by the "OVERFLOWING SCOURGE" (i.e., the AntiChrist).

The question is, from where did this "messiah-complex" originate? AntiChrist is, after all, merely a man; he is not God; he is not divine. Indeed, speaking of him, the Bible says,

"Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus [i.e., AntiChrist - please see The Coming Prince by Robert Duncan Culver], Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; YET THOU ART A MAN, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God ..." (Ezek. 28:2)

AntiChrist's "messiah-complex" originated from somewhere, just as Hitler's did. Hitler received his ideas from the German people - people such as Alfred Rosenberg, Houston Stewart Chamberlain (who was actually an Englishman, but who became German), Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, etc. Where did AntiChrist get his? That's the question! These ideas - the kind that lead to a "messiah-complex" - don't appear out of thin air.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
A TYRANT AND A MESSIAH

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." (Rev. 13:1) [In Scripture, the "sea" is a representation of the people; in other words, the "beast" (AntiChrist) originates from the people by acclimation.]

A messiah-figure is in a very real sense a living MANIFESTATION of the people out from which he comes; he is their creation, their "mirror image" - and so much so that it is often the case that the people "recognize" a "messiah" long before he "recognizes" himself.

The one great difference between a tyrant and a messiah-figure (which AntiChrist plainly is) is that a tyrant forces himself on a population; he imposes himself on it, often by force of arms like a Pinochet or a Samosa. But a messiah-figure - someone like a Hitler, for instance - receives his power by acclimation. Rather than imposing himself on people, he gives the appearance of emanating from them - and this is precisely what the Scriptures say about AntiChrist:

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." (Rev. 13:1) [In Scripture, the "sea" is a representation of the people; in other words, the "beast" (AntiChrist) originates from the people by acclimation.]

A messiah-figure is in a very real sense a living MANIFESTATION of the people out from which he comes; he is their creation, their "mirror image" - and so much so that it is often the case that the people "recognize" a "messiah" long before he "recognizes" himself.

The well-known English historian Ian Kershaw writes concerning the possessor of this kind of "charisma" or "messianism" (specifically, as it pertained to Hitler):

"If I have found one concept more than any other which has helped me to find a way to bind together the otherwise contradictory approaches [to Hitler] through biography and the writing of social history, it is Max Weber's notion of 'charismatic leadership' - a notion which looks to explanations of this extraordinary form of political domination primarily in the perception of 'charisma', that is, in the society rather than, in the first instance, in the personality of the object of their adulation."

What Kershaw is saying here is that the holder of "charismatic power" derives it not so much from the force of his own personality, but from a society that is predisposed toward seeing him as such; specifically, IT IS DERIVED FROM THE READINESS OF OTHERS TO SEE HIM AS A MESSIANIC FIGURE.

PART 3: SEEKING THE SOURCE
OF ANTICHRIST'S POWER

Who, then, are AntiChrist's followers in the first instance? From what social milieu does he emanate that renders to him the "recognition" messianic leadership demands? WHO ARE THOSE PEOPLE TODAY WHO ARE PRONE TO SEE HIM AS A MESSIAH? The very real fact of the matter is, THERE IS ONLY ONE GROUP IN ALL THE EARTH THAT IS TODAY PRONE TO SEE MESSIAHS - at least the religious kind of messiah described in Daniel and the Revelation: and that is THE AMERICAN EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY, THE VERY GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO TODAY FORM THE CORE ELEMENT OF AMERICA'S RELIGIOUS RIGHT.

Max Weber conceptualized messianic leadership, which he contrasted with "traditional" and "legal" leadership (i.e., leadership resting on impersonal, "rational," bureaucratic rules), as an extraordinary form of rule, tending to arise in unusual or crisis conditions, and directed not at the solution of everyday problems of government, but at overcoming "supradimensional" emergencies. Messianic authority rests on people perceiving in their messiah-figure supernatural and/or superhuman power.

According to Weber, then, Messianism is a quality determined by the subjective perceptions of the followers. Weber writes:

"What is alone important is how the individual is actually regarded by those subject to charismatic (i.e., messianic) authority, by his 'followers' or 'disciples'."

The followers of the leader are won over and their backing derived from personal loyalty, not abstract "rules" or positions; and it is sustained by great deeds, resounding successes, and notable achievements which provide the repeated "proof" of the leader's "calling." The bearer of charisma (i.e., messianic leadership) seizes the task for which he is destined and demands that others obey and follow him BY VIRTUE OF HIS PERCEIVED MISSION OR "CALLING." If those to whom he feels sent do not recognize him, his claim collapses; if they recognize it, he is their master as long as he "proves" himself.

Who, then, are AntiChrist's followers in the first instance? From what social milieu does he emanate that renders to him the "recognition" messianic leadership demands? WHO ARE THOSE PEOPLE TODAY WHO ARE PRONE TO SEE HIM AS A MESSIAH? - and remember here, this great latter-day messiah possesses much more than mere social charisma, but RELIGIOUS charisma, and a particular kind of religious charisma; a kind that attaches great importance to the Holy Land, and most particularly, to Jerusalem. So very obviously, we are not talking about a Hindu-like "New Age" charisma; that kind of leader would be more disposed "to pitch the tents of his royal pavilion" (Daniel 11:45) in the Himalayas, or in the Hindu-Cush, or maybe even in the Andes or some other such "High Place," but not in Jerusalem.

THE AMERICAN EVANGELICALS

The very real fact of the matter is, THERE IS ONLY ONE GROUP IN ALL THE EARTH THAT IS TODAY PRONE TO SEE MESSIAHS - at least the religious kind of messiah described in Daniel and the Revelation: and that is THE AMERICAN EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY, THE VERY GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO TODAY FORM THE CORE ELEMENT OF AMERICA'S RELIGIOUS RIGHT.

While Europe is a spent force religiously speaking, American Christianity is alive and well, and it possesses actual political power. There is NOTHING in Europe that even comes close to the vibrant nature of American evangelicalism. There are no churches anywhere there that can match the huge size of D. James Kennedy's church in Florida, or James Robison's church in Texas. Such churches simply don't exist in Europe.

Yes, Europe has its cathedrals, but they are nothing more than empty hulks of a bygone era that serve more as tourist attractions to visiting Americans than houses of worship to Europeans. Leaving aside the fact that Europe is a pygmy militarily speaking, and nothing more than an American client-state economically speaking, Europe simply doesn't possess the kind of population that sees messiahs any longer. They are a "spent people" on a "spent continent" that no longer are capable of "climbing high mountains," or "dreaming great dreams."

But Americans? - THEY'RE DIFFERENT! They still believe in "MANIFEST DESTINY!" - and they still believe that some great destiny awaits them. And no where else does this dream hold sway more than in the hearts of American evangelicals. To Americans, America is God's great REDEEMER NATION. What German today would ever say that about Germany? Or what Englishman would say that about England? Or what Frenchman would say that about France? - and most especially, what European would ever say that about that impersonal, bureaucratic, detached entity called the E.U.? Such people don't exist.

MANIFEST DESTINY IS ALIVE AND WELL

But in America, MANIFEST DESTINY is alive and well, and it is throbbing in the breasts of countless numbers of American evangelicals whose hearts beat proudly whenever they see their planes bomb another village in Afghanistan, or another aspirin factory in the Sudan; or whenever they see one of their massive carrier battle groups return home from duty to San Diego or Newport News, having bombed the hell out of some third world country. [And I say this not as one who has never served in the military; I am a combat veteran of the Vietnam war having served in two long, drawn-out combat campaigns and having won a bronze star.]

MANIFEST DESTINY: The belief by Christians that the United States is God's great "Redeemer Nation" destined by God to conquer the world for "Christ and the church."

PART 4: THE DOMINIONIST MODEL

GOD'S REDEEMER NATION

American Christians long ago forgot what Jesus said about this world:

"... My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight ... but ... my kingdom [is] not from hence." (John 18:36)

They have instead unabashedly embraced the old Calvinist [Puritan] concept of America as the "REDEEMER NATION" that God has chosen to carry "Christian Civilization" to the world.

In recent years, this older Calvinism has been merged with the newer concept of "dominionism" which has served only to enhance and strengthen the concept of America as the "REDEEMER NATION" on the American evangelical's imagination. Al Dager, a recognized authority on "dominionism," explains the new dominionist mindset,

"Some two decades before Pentecostalism found its way into the [mainstream] denominations [i.e., the Episcopalians, the Catholic Church, etc.] as the 'Charismatic Renewal', it experienced a new surge of experience-oriented theology within its own ranks. It was from this neo-Pentecostal experience - what came to be called the 'Latter Rain Movement' - that Charismatic Dominionism sprang. The more prominent leaders of that movement blended Pentecostal fervor with teachings that THE CHURCH WAS ON THE BRINK OF A WORLDWIDE REVIVAL. THAT REVIVAL WOULD RESULT IN A VICTORIOUS CHURCH WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE ... [WHICH] WOULD INHERIT THE EARTH AND RULE OVER THE NATIONS WITH A ROD OF IRON."

The mixture of the two -- i.e., the older Calvinism that pictured America as God's REDEEMER NATION and the newer dominionism that postulates the belief that the church is on the brink of a great REVIVAL that will result in the church inheriting the earth and ruling over the nations with a rod of iron -- has produced in evangelicals the belief that God is going to bring a vast revival to America, and through America, the world. It has conjured up a picture in American evangelicals of America as a kind of new CRUSADER STATE destined by God to spread the Christian message throughout the world - AT THE POINT OF A SWORD, if necessary.

SPREADING CHRISTIANITY
AT THE POINT OF A SWORD

Preaching the "Gospel of peace" (Rom 10:15 & Eph 6:15) at the point of a sword? It's OXYMORONIC! It's INSANE! Nonetheless, this is what the late R.J. Rushdoony plainly taught when he wrote,

"In winning a nation [or the world] to the gospel, THE SWORD AS WELL AS THE PEN MUST BE USED."

It's also what Sam Fife believed when he said,

"... Jesus is setting up His kingdom here on earth ... WE ARE THE RULERS OF THIS PLANET - IT'S TIME WE TAKE OVER."

And insofar as America's pivotal role in the conquest of the world for "Christ and the church," Kenneth Copeland says:

"THIS COUNTRY BELONGS TO GOD ... He's the One who brought the United States of America into existence. He has a SPECIAL PURPOSE for it [as God's REDEEMER NATION] ... He raised it up, and it's not going to be taken away from Him."

To evangelicals like Kenneth Copeland, Sam Fife and R.J. Rushdoony, there is no such a thing as the separation of church and state. The state exists merely to serve the needs of the church. For example, the late W.A. Criswell, the Senior Pastor of Dallas's giant First Baptist Church, said:

"THERE IS NO SUCH A THING AS THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. It is merely a figment of the imagination of infidels."

To American evangelicals, the holy trinity consists of:

  • Conservative Christian preachers,

  • Conservative politicians.

  • The military establishment.

It has very little to do with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To evangelicals, when liberals attack the flag, preach non-violence, cut the defense budget, and try to impose religious "diversity" on the political and social structures of the nation, what they are really doing is attacking God. Catholic Gary Potts says:

"Church and state, far from being separated, are a simultaneous and identical occasion in the United States ... The flag is the symbol of this religious fusion and the Pledge is the state prayer."

The fact is, in America God is wrapped up in the flag, and the mandatory worship of this piece of cloth, with all the ceremony attendant to this obligation, is the real liturgy of American evangelicalism.

This is no joke! This is no exaggeration! This is for real! For example, John Eckhardt, the pastor and "overseer" of Crusaders Ministries in Chicago and a luminary in today's "Apostles and Prophets Movement," characterizes the church in the "end of days" as a church of WARFARE. To Eckhardt, that's what "Apostolic Ministry" is all about. [Please see our article on "Apostolic Ministry" entitled "Today's Church: Making Zombies out of Christians - the Prophets and Apostles Movement."] Eckhardt writes:

"Apostolic ministry is a ministry of WARFARE. It entails commanding, mobilizing, rallying and gathering the ARMY of God to challenge and pull down the strongholds of the enemy. The Apostolic Church invades new territories and breaks through."

A "WHO'S WHO" OF AMERICAN "DOMINIONISTS"

And the list of those who now embrace this kind of very menacing Christianity reads like a "Who's Who" of American pastors and leaders - people who fervently believe in America as the REDEEMER NATION destined by God to conquer the world for "Christ and the church" - and includes such Christian "luminaries" as Charles Stanley, 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, 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.

THE ESCHATOLOGICAL MODEL OF DOMINIONISM

THE CHURCH: Taking control of the earth using violence

Once again, the eschatological model that all these men in one way or another subscribe to is as follows:

  • The world is plunged into a time of political and spiritual crisis, one which threatens the world with chaos and the church with destruction. [Dominionists believe we have been in this phase of the "end of days" for a long time now as evidenced by the decline of America's older, euro-centered, Christian civilization, the removal of prayer from the schools, and the concomitant emergence of secular-humanism, militant feminism, homosexuality, pornography, rampant liberalism, etc., etc.]

  • The Lord brings revival to the church. [Dominionists believe that that's what is beginning to happen now with the "new charismatic movement," the growing ecumenism between and among the various branches of Christianity, the "Signs and Wonders" movement, and most especially with what C. Peter Wagner calls the "New Apostolic Reformation" (please see our article on this phenomenon: "Today's Church: Making Zombies out of Christians - The New Prophets and Apostles Movement").]

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

  • 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.

  • This results finally in the CONVERSION OF ISRAEL, and the judgment of those who refuse to convert.

  • The Lord returns.

Now it's important to note that the dominionist model as depicted here is not an eschatological model 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 details, 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, The Grail Quest: The Search for Moral Perfection and Phallus Worship and the New Charismatics.]

"Taking back territory" from the "enemy" - whether in oneself or in the world - that's what the dominionist mindset is all about - and when one "takes enough territory back," Christ will come again.

"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)

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!

DOMINIONISM IS AT VARIANCE
WITH THE SCRIPTURES

Of course, 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). 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)

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 which 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).

The fact is, the basic premise behind Christian dominionism - that the church can conquer the world 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 like C. Peter Wagner, Charles Stanley, 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.

Concerning the picture of the church just prior to His coming again, the Lord is constrained to ask rhetorically,

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

PART 5: FICTION MEETS REALITY - THE CHURCH

Is it really that difficult to understand 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?

So now - after the Gog/Magog War - fiction begins to meet reality; deception meets fact; the cracked-pot and vain imaginings of C. Peter Wagner, John Eckhardt and their ilk meet the reality of Biblical truth: and that is, that the people of the world are NOT waiting around breathlessly for their (i.e., the American evangelical's) selfish, mean-spirited brand of Christianity; and that the rest of the world, if not American evangelicals, recognize the American Empire for what it really is - that it is NOT the "New Israel of God," 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)

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?

Is it really that difficult to understand 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?

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.

COMING PURGE OF THE CHURCH

Speaking of those who oppose the teachings of people such as C. Peter Wagner

Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue has said: "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."

In the "New World Order," opposing America is tantamount to opposing God. Come on, isn't that how most American evangelicals will take it? Isn't that what someone like John Hagee will say? And Pat Robertson? And D. James Kennedy? And James Robison? And Tim LaHaye? - who like the nincompoop he really is thinks that the AntiChrist will come out of Romania! These are the blind leading the blind! - and 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 sees.

And one should not underestimate the ferocity that will be unleashed on those who rebel against the American New World Order System. Take the ominous words of John Eckhardt, for instance:

"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."

A RAVENOUS BIRD OF PREY? - that's what the church of America's New World Order System is? Eeee gads! God help those who oppose this church! 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 what Eckhardt calls the church? - a VORACIOUS, GREEDY BIRD OF PREY! A bird of prey that will seize and devour its enemies. What kind of Bible is Eckhardt reading out of?

Then there's 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) ?

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

Now, one must understand something here! - the standard upon which one will be judged here is not all that high. One is being asked simply to differentiate between the MURDEROUS kind of Christianity that the church of Charles Stanley, 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, Jerry Falwell, Chuck Colson, Jack Hayford, etc. proclaim and the simple Gospel of the "PRINCE OF PEACE."

Where is the difficulty in that?

IF YOU CHOOSE GOD YOU
WILL BE LABELED A WITCH

John Eckhardt, one of today's so-called "Apostles and Prophets," 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, Doren, Ryles, Joyner, etc.] Disobedience and rebellion are always present wherever there is WITCHCRAFT [ipso facto, anyone who opposes their teachings - i.e., who is "disobedient" and "rebellious" insofar as the "truth" they are preaching is 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, Doren, Ryles, Joyner, etc.] Disobedience and rebellion are always present wherever there is WITCHCRAFT [ipso facto, anyone who opposes their teachings - i.e., who is "disobedient" and "rebellious" insofar as the "truth" they are preaching is a WITCH]."

"... 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."

And how is it that the RULE of the "Apostles and Prophets" is 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."

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 the martyrs 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.

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.

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.

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 the church, 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 6: FICTION MEETS REALITY - ISRAEL
AND WHAT ABOUT ISRAEL?

The Lord brings revival to the church and this results in the conversion of Israel - this is the erroneous teaching of today's church leaders.

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.

  5. THIS RESULTS IN THE CONVERSION OF ISRAEL.

  6. The Lord returns.

According to the "dominionist" model, Israel has to CONVERT for the Lord to come back. That's what people like Derick Prince, Reuven Doren 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!

Remember, 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! But the conversion of Israel AS A NATION 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)

DOING VIOLENCE TO THE
DOMINIONISTS' TIME-LINE

THE CHURCH IS BIRTHING ISRAEL

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 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'] ... 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."

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. 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 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'] ... 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 Doren 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.

Expanding on what Doron says, Rick Joyner continues,

"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 like C. Peter Wagner, John Eckhardt, Derrick Prince, Dutch Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso, Carlos Annacondia, etc. 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.

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.

Think about that: THE CONVERSION OF THE JEWS - NOT NECESSARILY THE CHURCH TAKING CONTROL OF THE EARTH - 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! - and to this end, they fervently believe the church has made herself ready.

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.

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 - and you can be sure that it will happen again!

A FESTERING SORE

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

The presence of unconverted Jews in the Holy Land could not help but be a festering sore to the dominionist eschatology of Reuven Doren, 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. is busy "setting up shop" - is too much, especially in light of their 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. 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.

And so now, it begins all over again: a new BLOODLUST against the Jews aggressively pushed by the APOSTATE CHURCH - which, together with the AntiChrist, is ALSO now ensconced in the Holy Land - begins, 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?

Very obviously, it would appear that the 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 the "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?" Eee gads! - there's that label again! 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 ..."

BLOODLUST AGAINST THE JEWS

And so now, it begins all over again: a new BLOODLUST against the Jews aggressively pushed by the APOSTATE CHURCH - which, together with the AntiChrist, is ALSO now ensconced in the Holy Land - begins, 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 side article on the "The Messianic Jews: What Will They Do?]

Very obviously, the Reuven Dorens and the James Ryles of this world will claim that those Christians who continue to stand with

Israel and who refuse to stand with them have abandoned their Christianity! That they have abandoned Christ! What will they do then? - that's the question for them! This doesn't mean that Jewish Christians in Israel shouldn't preach the Gospel. They should! - both "in season and out of season!" But what it does mean, is that in their preaching of the "Good News" of Jesus Christ, THEY MUST ALSO PROCLAIM BOTH BY THEIR WORDS AND THEIR MANNER OF LIVING THAT THEY (AND TRUE CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE) 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 THIS "OVERFLOWING SCOURGE" (Is. 28:18) THAT HAS -

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

No doubt, in doing so, and in their resultant failure to support the OCCUPATION of Israel by the forces of AntiChrist (which, sadly, has resulted from Israel's ill-advised defense pact with the United States), they will, as we have previously indicated, very obviously appear to be challenging the LEGITIMACY of America's New World Order System, which is something much more than a mere "religious crime," but a "political crime" as well - for which they can pay with their lives. What will they do then?
