"THE ‘NEW CHRISTIAN ZIONISM’ ISN’T DISPENSATIONALISM (GERRY MCDERMOTT)"

"Why I am a Christian Zionist"
Part of this article says
"3.) Jesus is a Zionist. Somewhere in the midst of the “Christian” anti-Semitism of church history and our stained glass images of an Anglo-Saxon Savior, the identity of Jesus as the Jewish Messiah of Israel has been diluted in much of Christendom. This is unfortunate, since both the Old and New Testaments affirm the Jewish identity of Jesus. Think about it. He celebrated Hanukkah (John 10:22), quoted Jewish prophets (Luke 4:18–19), attended synagogue (Luke 4:15), and even “schmoozed” with Jewish leaders at the Temple (Luke 2:46). As if that is not enough, His entire ministry was done within the borders of Israel!

The inextricable link Jesus had with both the Jewish people and homeland during His First Advent will be in no way diminished at His Second Coming. At the end of the period the prophets call “the time of Jacob’s trouble,” the Jewish people will call to the Messiah in faith (Matthew 23:39). At that time, He will seat Himself on His throne in Jerusalem (Psalm 132:13–14), and He will enter into judgment with the nations of the world, rewarding or cursing them based on their treatment of the Jewish people (Matthew 25:31–46).

SHARE THIS POST

Yes, the baby in the manger, the carpenter of Nazareth, the Suffering Servant of Calvary will return as the promised King of Israel. With His Jewish brethren given hearts of flesh in place of stone (Jeremiah 31), the enemies of the Jewish people subject to His rule, and His throne firmly established in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel, Jesus is and will continue to be the premier Zionist.

Contrary to what Christian anti-Zionists, such as Joel McDurmon, may say, Israel is not like “any other secular nation.” Are they in the land largely in unbelief? Yes. Is the Messiah on His throne? No. But to be a Zionist, to believe that God has given Israel a unique right to live securely and sovereignly in its historic homeland, is as biblical as it gets.

I’m proud to be a Zionist. How about you?" The Full article is online

"Christian Anti-Zionism: On the Wrong Side of History, Justice, and the Bible" January/February 2014  by Bruce Scott   this article says

"In June 1982, Israel decided enough was enough. After setting up new headquarters in Lebanon in the early 1970s, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) led by Yasser Arafat launched frequent terrorist attacks into northern Israel, accompanied by incessant rocket barrages. Scores of Israelis were killed, hundreds wounded, and thousands forced to flee or hide in underground bunkers. With Operation Peace for Galilee, Israel invaded Lebanon and forced the PLO to retreat to Tunisia.

Not everyone was pleased that Israel went into Lebanon to defend itself.

On June 22, 1982, John Piper, then pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, wrote the following in an article titled “Prophecy and the Invasion of Lebanon”:

Woe to the followers of Christ who condone the displacement of 600,000 Lebanese citizens [Note: it was closer to 200,000] at the point of Jewish rifles. Woe to the Christians who think Jesus Christ sanctions the killing of 10,000 Lebanese [Note: the actual 6,000 civilian deaths came from both sides, not only Israel] because the bullets came from Israeli tanks. God does not sanction the sins of this rebel people. They stand under his judgment for their sins. Our response can be only this: an outcry of righteous indignation against Israel’s arrogance and aggression; and a prayer that they might repent and be saved before it is too late.1

Why would Piper make such a statement? Biblically, we can understand why the world would unjustly turn against Israel. It is predicted (Zech. 12; 14). But why would a Christian say such things? It is because John Piper is a Christian anti-Zionist.

Christian anti-Zionists (CaZs) are professing Christians who dispute the modern State of Israel’s historical, legal, moral, prophetic, and/or divine right to the promised and demarcated Holy Land of Scripture. They are part of a movement that grows stronger each day. Many of them seek to isolate and punish Israel through economic sanctions.

Common Characteristics
Their teaching shares a number of common characteristics:

(1) CaZs wrongly assume New Testament revelation has more value than Old Testament revelation. They believe Jesus and the New Testament writers expanded and redefined Old Testament concepts, such as the Kingdom, the Chosen People, and the Land. Consequently, CaZs assign new meanings to the Old Testament promises God gave Israel. This practice leads to Replacement Theology, to which many CaZs adhere.

(2) CaZs use the allegorical method of interpreting Scripture. The Church of Scotland’s anti-Zionist stand clearly reveals this approach: “To Christians in the 21st century, promises about the land of Israel shouldn’t be intended to be taken literally, or as applying to a defined geographical territory…The ‘promised land’ in the Bible is not a place, so much as a metaphor of how things ought to be among the people of God.”2

(3) CaZs use a fallacious argument from silence to try to prove their point. They falsely assume their position on the Holy Land is true simply because the New Testament writers spoke so infrequently of God’s land promises to Israel and Israel’s restoration to its land. On one occasion, when confronted about his argument from silence, Gary Burge countered, “It is such a loud silence.”3

Anonymous said...

The israelmyglory.org article continues: (4) CaZs are advocates and activists for leftist ideals. There is an evangelical Left, to which many CaZs belong. They believe the church’s role in the world is to strive for peace and social justice and promote a contemporary version of the Social Gospel movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Social Gospel movement was liberal in its theology, contained socialist components, and concentrated on correcting societal problems through social activism, rather than stressing heart change through personal faith in Jesus Christ.

The Christian anti-Zionism movement is little different. CaZs tout biblical justice, yet they insist the corrupt, godless international courts be the final authority for determining Israel’s rights to the land.

They define justice in terms of equality of resources and power. Therefore, the phrase peace and justice becomes a euphemism for “Israel needs to surrender more land.”

There is nothing unchristian about a call for justice. But CaZs overemphasize that call and misdirect their efforts. For instance, Christian anti-Zionists often give a brief, token acknowledgement of Israeli suffering and then spend the majority of their time recounting so-called Israeli injustices against Palestinians, as if there were a moral equivalence between the inconvenience of a checkpoint and being blown up by a homicide bomber.

If CaZs are so concerned about justice, they might do well to ponder these questions: To whom did the international community promise the land of Israel, only to have it carved up into ever smaller pieces until there was little left for the Jewish people? Who was willing to accept the UN Partition Plan of 1947 and was subsequently attacked by five Arab nations? What country has repeatedly relinquished land for the hope of peace, yet continues to be bombarded by rockets in return? What country has been the ongoing target of homicide bombers and terrorists, yet is vilified for constructing an effective security barrier to protect its people against such onslaughts? What country is surrounded by enemies sworn to driving it into the sea? All of these questions are answered by one word: Israel—the true victim of injustice."

Anonymous said...

& continues
"(5) CaZs evidence a lack of humility in their standing before God by their treatment of Israel. Despite Paul’s warning in Romans 11:18 not to “boast against the branches,” meaning not to denigrate the Jewish people, Christian anti-Zionists demonstrate an attitude of arrogance and triumphalism toward Israel, as does their high-handed, judicial assessment that modern Israel has no divine right to the Holy Land.

On the contrary, what right has any man to judge whether Israel should possess the Holy Land? God promised Jacob, “Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will make of you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession” (Gen. 48:4).

It is true that modern Israel is not a theocracy but, rather, a secular state. Like any other nation, it errs occasionally in policy and practice. Most Christian Zionists recognize that fact.

But out of reverential fear of God, the absolute and final Judge, and in deference to His many promises regarding Israel’s divine right to the land, Christian Zionists do not presumptuously conclude that the Jewish people should be dispossessed of what God has pledged to them. Christian Zionists approach Israel, not as self-appointed arbitrators, but as reproving, yet supportive friends.

CaZs do not understand that God holds the nations accountable for their treatment of Israel, even when Israel is in a state of unbelief (Jer. 2:3; Ezek. 35).

Who Is on the Lord’s Side?
Christian anti-Zionist Gary Burge proclaimed, “Christian Zionists…are Holy Land zealots because they are poor theologians. They follow the road that leads to Masada, and when they get there, they will find that Jesus is not at the top to greet them.”4

Burge is right in that Jesus will not be at the top of Masada. He will be at the top of the Mount of Olives, fighting for His people Israel (Zech. 14) when He comes to set up His Kingdom in the land He promised to give them forever.

Until then, the struggle for the land of Israel is ultimately a spiritual battle; and Christian anti-Zionists must be careful or they will find themselves fighting on the wrong side."

Many Christians would agree that God created Hell &

Evil, Wickedness, Lies,Hatred and Hypocrisy towards Jews and Israel even if they were to ultimately sincerely repent and be remorseful, it won't save them , it will be too late for them, God will Never let them out of Hell and The Lake of Fire

Earlier in 2023 a person typed on
Facebook
"The relationship between antisemitism and anti-Zionism

Western antisemitism focuses on the Jewish state. It falsely claims not to be antisemitic because it distinguishes between the Jews who live in Western countries and those living in Israel. But it has a chilling effect on the Western Jews who feel they have to separate themselves from the Jews of Israel or else they will be the next to be attacked.

There are at least four types of antisemitism. The mildest form of antisemitism is indifference to what happens to Jews. Indifferent antisemites tell themselves they are not actively trying to harm Jews; it's just that they have no sympathy for them. They might have compassion for other groups, but as far as they are concerned, it's not in their interests to pay any price at all to help Jews. For example, suppose the Arabs threaten to raise the price of oil or vote against Western interests in the UN. Then for these antisemites, Western interests are better served by siding with the Arabs without regard to the consequences for the Jews of Israel. An antisemite of this sort expressed his feelings succinctly in a bumper sticker I saw in the 1970s, which said, “Burn Jews, not oil.”

The second form of antisemitism is Blood Libel antisemitism. The Blood Libel originated in the Middle Ages when antisemites claimed that Jews needed fresh blood from innocent Christian children to make Passover matzoh. It surfaced as late as the 19th Century in Czarist Russia. Blood Libel antisemites feel guilty that when Europe got rid of its Jews, the West inflicted their Jews on the innocent Arabs. Blood Libel antisemites think they are doing good because they only try to protect innocent Arabs from the evil Jews. They might even help Israel in some ways as they attack Israel in other ways.

Blood Libel antisemites want to believe that today, the Jews of Israel are unfairly torturing and killing innocent Palestinians. Blood Libel antisemitic media prejudicially paint the picture of IDF soldiers killing innocent Arab children. The Mohammed Al Dura story is an excellent example of that. Palestinian propagandists manipulate this form of antisemitism by feeding these reporters and editors the stories they want to hear.

The third form of antisemitism is “wandering Jew” antisemitism. Wandering Jew antisemites believe God cursed the Jews to wander the world without returning to the land God promised them in the Bible. Extremely bitter antisemites of this sort attack the Jewish state directly from high-paying positions of power in the UN, EU, or NGOs. Contrary to the mission of the organizations they represent, they would rather see Israel bleed to death than have peace in the Middle East.

The fourth form of antisemitism is contemporary left-wing antisemitism, a secular repackaging of all the themes of Medieval Christian antisemitism. Left-wing antisemites accuse the Jews of embodying all the evils their ideology can imagine, such as capitalism, colonialism, racism, sexism, etc. The fact that all those accusations are untrue is just as irrelevant today as it was in the Middle Ages. Thank God modern Christianity has left Medieval antisemitism behind.

Many Palestinians are fed up with the PA's corruption and don't want to be continually at war with Israel. Antisemitic Westerners are not helping them by supporting the PA without demanding substantial reforms. And, by encouraging the Islamists to keep fighting the Jews, the West is keeping the jihad war going indefinitely.

The jihad war is going on worldwide. It's happening in Western countries as well as in the Middle East. Westerners would be well advised to help Israel as one of the ways they can help themselves."

Christian Anti-Semitism and of Hate & Suspicion between Christians and Jews, and of Christian-Jewish Reconciliation that took place after the Holocaust , because of the tragedy and horrors of the Holocaust, the song
"Suspicious Minds" has a sad tone to it. From Wikipedia it says about this song

"The song is about a mistrusting and dysfunctional relationship, and the need of the characters to overcome their issues in order to maintain it."

A Christian woman recently typed on a Facebook group devoted to Fighting Anti-Semitism that
"I live in the south, I'm 28, Christian, white female. Why does this matter? I guess because im not Jewish so I don't know what it is like to be Jewish and experience Jewish hate. This doesn't mean I've never experienced prejudice or hate. Being female I have experienced sexism and and the fear that makes me carry mace and keep an eye on my drink. I've never experienced the historical and generational repercussions that the holocaust has caused even to this modern day. I do feel like in some ways women have been fighting generational curses and wounds as well, I know blacks have too. I am openly Christian and I've been harrassed and made fun of because of my faith, though I've never felt unsafe because of my faith, but Ever since these church and synagogue shootings I sometimes wonder if my church could be next. My uncle (a non believer) married a non practicing Jewish woman a few years ago. He told me a story not too long ago about how he mentioned to some people while they were out in public that she was Jewish. He didn't think much about it but she got upset and told him "you can't just go around telling people that" I can't imagine feeling like I need to hide such a big part of of myself, my faith and/or nationality. I'm openly Christian, I wear a cross on my neck, I pray in public over my meals, I talk about God and Jesus, so i couldn't imagine feeling like I need to hide my faith. I wouldn't feel whole if I did since it's such a big part of me and my family. The reason i mention all of this is because as I contemplate hate in all its forms, racism, sexism, anti semitism, homophobia, etc... I ask myself why is this part of the human condition? And why since most of us have experienced some form of hate in our lives do we continue to perpetuate it? Someone not too long ago mentioned the white savior complex to me and then I watch videos of black people hating Jews and jews hating blacks and women hating other women and all these groups of people who imo should be United by their suffering or pain but instead are divided by it and perpetuating it. I asked one of my neighbors why she thought the Jews were hated so much she told me she feels like it's a PR issue. She mentioned how the Christian churches are constantly reaching out to the community holding trunck or treats in the neighborhoods, falls festivals and fairs, soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, etc...and how those things have reached into her life and thus created positive associations for her but that she has never experienced that from the Jewish faith. She also said most every day people aren't educated about anything Jewish, they don't know about Israel, or Zionism, they only know about the holocaust (and some don't know about that). This is just one drop in the opinion bucket however true or untrue it may actually be, but it is her experience and feelings and thus justified to her. I guess what I'm getting at is idk why Jewish people are so hated, why any of us are for that matter. I feel like the only thing I can do as someone who isn't Jewish Is just teach my children to love and to not be silent when I see hate. Beyond that at this present time just accept that humans are deeply flawed as a whole and by recognizing this we can put up safety barriers against this like laws."

Headshot of the Rev. Canon Leonard L. Hamlin Sr.
My friends, this isn’t hard. Antisemitism grieves the very heart of God and is as un-Christian as it is un-American. There is no place for hatred of Jews or Judaism in our hearts, our homes, our churches or our country. It’s really that simple.

We stand with our Jewish friends and neighbors and condemn this ugly hatred. The most disturbing thing about all this is that, here in 2023, we’re still battling this demon.

We’re reminded of the wise words of the Presiding Bishop, the Most Rev. Michael Curry: “If it isn’t about love, it isn’t about God.”

"Whose Land Is It Anyway — Part One" this article says

“And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great;and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” – Genesis 12:2-3

Once again we are facing the latest rounds of discussion about how to bring peace in the Middle East.  Most of the talk revolves around that proposal that Israel will give up the Gaza Strip and parts of the West Bank.

Aside from the impracticality of this latest peace effort, peace agreements will not solve the question of land ownership in the Middle East.  These problems have existed for our 4,000 years – since the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and since the time of Sarah, Hagar and Ishmael.

Bartering and bargaining of land plots will not solve the question as to who has right to the “piece of property” known as Israel.  Only the Prince of Peace (sar shalom) will bring peace to this troubled land.  And this true peace can only occur when Jesus as this prince of peace rules during the millennial reign.

But should we give up on searching for peace in Israel and the Middle East?  No, but we should recognize that it is only a pseudo peace and one that can never last.  The important question is what we as Christians and followers of Jesus should do to bring the reality of eternal peace to Sabras (native [Jewish] Israelis), the thousands of Russian Jewish immigrants arriving daily after years of oppression in the former Soviet Union, and, yes, the Palestinians who are without a land and without eternal hope.

As to the answer to the question – Whose Land Is It Anyway? – Scripture reveals the answer in Genesis 12, 15 and 17.  The land belongs to the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  But the interesting twist is how much land was given to the Jewish people…."

Next Time … What is the territorial extent of the Promised Land?

“In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” – Genesis 15:18-21

The Abrahamic covenant has two characteristics – (1) first it was God initiated and (2) it was God enacted.

In a beautifully written, but ultimately flawed work, Thomas Cahill in The Gift of the Jews describes Abram as a seeking polytheist who was looking for the ultimate God. While some might disagree with this view (including myself), we must remember that Abram lived in a polytheistic and sinful society. And it was out of this sinful place that God called one man to be the father of God’s chosen people and ultimately many nations.

For it was God who did the calling. Abram might have been a God-fearing man but it was God who did the choosing and God who did the leading. The first part of the Abrahamic covenant described in Genesis 12 (see Whose Land Is It Anyway – Part One), illustrates perfectly that God was the pursuer and provider of the covenant.

This is reinforced in Genesis 15 when the covenant was sealed by the sacrifice of a heifer, a female goat, a ram, a turtledove and a pigeon. Abraham slew the animals and prepared the sacrifice but you can notice that in verses 12-17 that it was God who did the work of “negotiating” and finalizing the deal.

God symbolically seen as a furnace and lamp passed between the divided the sacrifice and in verse 18 made a covenant with Abraham while Abraham was in a deep sleep (v. 12). Abraham’s action in the covenant was in preparation. God’s action in the covenant was everything else. And any covenant initiated by God and made by God cannot be broken.

So what was promised to the children of Abraham (through Isaac and Jacob)? Genesis 12 speaks a great nation that will be a blessing to other people. Genesis 17 was the initiation of the covenant through circumcision and the changing of Abram’s name to Abraham. Genesis 15 sets the boundaries for the territory from the river in Egypt to the Euphrates and the land belonging to (at the time it was promised) the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, etc.

This land mass extends, therefore, from the Nile River, located almost in the middle of Egypt to the Euphrates River in modern-day Iraq. The tribes mentioned were located in Canaan with the Amorites extending north into what is the southern edge of modern-day Turkey.

So if today Israel attempted to acquire all the land that was promised to them in Scripture, it would include from Egypt to Iraq and from Turkey to Saudi Arabia with the countries of Lebanon, Syria and Jordan in between. In other words, there would be war!

This blog post is not about making a political statement but about bringing to light what God has promised the Israeli people. How God will bring this about is up to him and the timing will be determined by him. But that is to be discussed in part three of “Whose Land Is It Anyway?”

Next Time . . . When will Israel receive all of the Promised Land that is promised to them?

Part Third and final part of the article says
"Whose Land Is It Anyway — Part Three" and it says:
“In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” – Genesis 15:18-21

"Last week (see part two) we looked at the physical boundaries of the Promised Land that God gave to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We also acknowledged that in today’s political climate for Israel to try to lay claim to all that God promised would mean World War III.

So in looking at what has been promised to the Jewish people, one must two questions – (1) has Israel ever been in complete control of all that has been promised to them?; and (2) when will Israel ever receive the full measure of God’s promise to them?

The answer to the first question is no. Joshua’ conquest of Canaan stopped before the complete conquest of the Promised Land. Beginning with Judges 1:27, we see the end of the conquest with the phrase “neither did,” in which the tribes of Manasseh, Ephraim, Zebulun, Asher, Napthali, and Dan did not follow through on God’s command to take possession of the land promised to them. With this failure, the period of “the Judges” begins which is marked by a cyclical pattern of rebellion, oppression, pleading to God for forgiveness and restoration until finally the book ends with the phrase, “and everyone did what was right in their own eyes” (21:25).

The great kingdoms of David and Solomon did not take possession of all that was promised to them. David’s sin with Bathsheba and Solomon’s problems with women stopped the fulfillment of what had been promised by God.

But do not worry because the answer to the second question is “YES.” One day Israel will see the reality of all that has been promised to them. We don’t know when but we do know the how, what and most importantly the WHO. Revelation 19-22 foretells of a time when Jesus himself will sit on the throne of David (see also specific passages in Isaiah 60-66) and rule the nations for a 1,000 years before the arrival of the New Jerusalem.

So the lesson we must learn is that while we must search for peaceful solutions to man’s problems and we must treat all peoples (Jews, Palestinians and Arabs) equitably and with dignity, we must acknowledge that the land is Israel’s and that one day Jesus himself will claim it for His own. It is not our place to try to do God’s job for him. It is our job to tell the world of Jesus and make ready for His arrival.

These thoughts have been quite appropriate because soon we will celebrate Israel’s Independence Day (the 5th of Iyar on the Jewish calendar). Sixty-three years ago (May 14, 1948 on the Julian calendar), the nation of Israel was reborn after being driven out of their homes in AD 70 by Titus. And while we must praise God for this miracle, we must always remember that true independence can only occur when a person’s heart is touched by Messiah Jesus. We must pray for this to happen every day of the year!
