My heart is to love and help people all that I can. And helping people is what I hope to accomplish by sharing the following information.
(This article isn’t about the millennial reign of Christ). Nor is it an exhaustive treatment of dispensationalism. This article is about how dispensationalism defines who the people of God are, and how Zionism is intertwined with dispensationalism. (And in case you’re wondering, I’m against Calvinism also, it too is bad doctrine).
Many dispensationalists (rightly say) that people shouldn’t be followers of reformed church fathers like Augustine & Calvin. Without even realizing that they themselves are followers of dispensational church fathers, (John Darby & Cyrus Scofield).
“Zionism” succinctly, is the idolatry of national Israel’s statehood. And this is just one of many golden calfs within the realm of religion. Ask yourself this: “Did God grant land & statehood status in 1948 to a people group who reject His Son?” The answer is no. You can credit that to political manipulation, (not God). And it’s worth knowing, the promotion of Zionism directly hastens the rebuilding of Jerusalem’s 3rd temple. And in that 3rd temple, is where the antichrist will proclaim that he is God, as a precursor to Christ’s return. Look for yourself: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thess. 3,4). So whether it’s popular to say or not, there’s a reasonable possibility that the antichrist will be a Jew…Could a non Jew sit in authority in their temple? What religion has already been looking for a messiah to exalt and worship? And what religion has ever hated the genuine Christ more than Judaism?…We’ll just have to wait and see who the antichrist is, fulfilling that prophecy.
What about modern Israel’s national ensign? What’s that all about? King David was never associated with any star. But apostate Israel was. “Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.” Acts 7.43 I will also add that the star that represents Israel is also a much-used occult symbol called a “hexagram.”
Let this sink in: Dispensationalism, Calvinism, Lutheranism, Roman Catholicism, denominational creeds, or (fill in the blank)…et al, are all products of systematic theologies based on the imaginations of a handful of extrabiblical men. And they are all false conclusions borne from bad biblical hermeneutics that forces God’s word to be subject to those men’s biases. Just because a doctrinal belief is old and is held by respected men doesn’t make it valid. Look at king David’s act of numbering the children of Israel, or Peter subjecting the Galatians to the law. Those too were very old doctrines, and of course they were wrong doctrines. Allegiance to religion’s hermeneutics will absolutely blind your comprehension of God’s word. The Holy Spirit is our teacher through God’s uncorrupted word.
“Zionism” is promoted in large part because of the heresy of “dispensationalism.” Which largely got its foothold in Christian doctrine via the Scofield reference bible, (which pushes a very pro Zionism, & pro dispensationalism agenda in its corrupt commentaries).
And one of dispensationalism’s doctrines is that God saved people in different ways in different “dispensations” of time. Dispensationalism also teaches…a false dual rapture, a false pretribulation rapture, and a divided Kingdom of God consisting of two people groups, Jew & Gentile.
Let me additionally say that everyone who has ever been saved, and everyone who ever will be saved are all saved the exact same way, by grace through faith. And there will only be one rapture (of all believers at one event), at Christ’s return, after the tribulation, (see Matthew 24.29-31, & Mark 13.24-27).
Despite dispensationalism’s teaching, God didn’t go to a parenthetical plan b, and decide to save the gentiles because His earthly kingdom plan with the Jews didn’t pan out the way He hoped, (because of Stephen’s stoning). National Israel rejected God long before the death of Stephen. According to dispensationalism, we are currently in a unique “dispensation of grace,” or “church age.” Well, the bible says that the church already existed long before the time of the new testament, “…the church in the wilderness…” Acts 7.38.
Instead of receiving the Messiah, the Jews killed Jesus, (1 Thess. 2.15). So what Jesus said to Israel back then…”Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.” Matthew 23.38, …is still true today.
And to be of the biological bloodline of Abraham or Jacob is irrelevant anyway. If someone now claimed to be a biological descendant of Abraham or Jacob, how could he know if it is true? Can he validate his genealogy back thousands of years to Abraham or Jacob? What about his ancestors who were converts to Judaism and were not biological descendants of Abraham or Jacob? That then would make today’s professing Jew a fraud, a Jew who is a Jew by religion only. Who’s religion is no better than Islam or any other non-Christian religion. In fact, rabbinic Judaism is one of the most wicked & Satanic religions that exists today. Investigate for yourself what is taught in their Talmud; it is supremely evil and blasphemous. Among other things, is their teaching that Jesus was an evil false prophet, the illegitimate child of a promiscuous mother, who is burning in excrement in hell for his sins…(That’s the belief of rabbinic Judaism). And like I stated earlier, don’t take my word for it; investigate for yourself what their Talmud says about Jesus.
God told us in Titus 3.9 to avoid geneologies, and I’m sure that the reason is because one’s ancestry doesn’t matter in the new covenant.
And even during the last days of the old covenant, God was already saying that bloodlines were of no help to anyone. “And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.” Matthew 3.9
Those who claim to be Jews today, are just as invited as anyone else to take of the waters of salvation and freely drink. Because after all, there will be a remnant of Jews who are saved. But Jews are no more privileged as a people than are Eskimos and Muslims, (or any other people group). The people of God, the true Israel of God, are those who are in Christ by grace through faith.
God has already fulfilled His land promises to ethnic/national Israel when Joshua and that generation of Israel crossed into Canaan. Future land promises were always conditional upon national Israel’s obedience, (and national Israel failed to be obedient). The promise from God to Israel today isn’t for their rest in a particular piece of land, the promise from God to Israel has been completely fulfilled in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. And thus, all Israel shall be saved. Because true Israel are those who rest in Christ.
“43. And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein.
44. And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.
“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.”
“That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
“And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.”
1 John 2.22,23
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”
Revelation 2.9, (see also 3.9)
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
And there are many, many more verses that echo the very same thing, so I’ll stop here.
Isn’t it wonderful that Christ is the Saviour of anyone who will believe on Him, without respect of persons?
Grace and peace to you.
