Dr. James Dobson devoted last week’s airtime to the grave threat to freedom now facing America. Spiritual revival, he said, is the ultimate solution. He couldn’t be more right. Yet what is revival? In the Old Testament, revival included more than repentance; the Hebrews also had to destroy all their idols.
What is an idol? It's not just an effigy of wood or stone. It's an alternate source of guidance, competing with God's guidance and laws.
Such an "idol," or false guidance system, exists in America and the world today. The pseudo-Biblical Zionist ideology idolizes Jews by asserting a monumental lie: that Jews have an unconditional covenant from God to be blessed by Him no matter what they do.
One of the most important yet neglected ethical questions of the last century is: "Do Jews have to obey God to merit His blessing as 'God's chosen people?' Do they also have to obey in order to have rights to Palestine?" Modern Talmudic Judaism and Zionism emphatically reply, "No!" The Bible just as emphatically says, "Yes!"
Most evangelicals agree with the Jews.
For the past century, evangelicalism has been guided in its relationship to Jews, matters Jewish and Zionist Israel by this false, idolatrous guidance system. This “idol” continues, contrary to Scripture, to counsel Christians that they must provide unconditional moral, military, and economic approval to Israel, right or wrong.
Nowhere does the Bible suggest the heretical idea that any person or group of people, rejecting and disparaging Christ, can expect blessing from God. Nor do such people have the right to demand it from those who do obey God, the saints. Yet such obligation to bless and support unbelieving Jews is taught by evangelicals and Jews as the law of God.
Biblical Guidance in an Age of Delusion
What does the Bible really say about God’s attitude (and Christians’ duty) to Israel? It says God's covenant and promises of spiritual and territorial blessing upon Abraham and his descendants were conditional upon obedience. God's covenant with Abraham came into existence in response to Abraham's obedience; it is sustained through the same obedience in his descendants.
Notice God's conditional terms in the following foundational verses:
"Walk before Me and be blameless, and I will establish My covenant between Me and you." --Genesis 17:1,2
"And in your seed, all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice." --Genesis 22:18
"For I have chosen him in order that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice; in order that the Lord may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him (the blessings of God's covenant)." --Genesis 18:19
And to Isaac, his son, God confirms: "…by your descendants shall all the nations of the earth be blessed: because Abraham obeyed Me…" -- Genesis 26:4-5
The Palestinian covenant lays down God's timeless requirement that Jews must follow Abraham’s example in order to enter Canaan and abide in it.
"If…you do not obey Me, by acts of hostility against Me, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you…" "You…I will scatter among the nations…" --Leviticus 26: 27, 28, 33
If Israel rebels, God warns, "you shall be torn from the land where you are entering to possess it…the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other…" --Deuteronomy 20: 63
However, if the Jews "return to the Lord your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul…then the Lord God will restore you from captivity…and gather you again from all the peoples where the Lord your God has scattered you." --Deuteronomy 30: 2, 3 1
But national repentance and obedience was not part of Israel’s birth as a nation in 1948! Zionists pushed their way into Palestine through violence, deceit, and brutal dispossession of the Christians and Muslims living in the Promised Land. Israel today is a spiritually counterfeit, racist state founded in utter rejection of their true messiah, Jesus Christ. (See, The Simple Explanation for Mid-East Strife)
Come out of her, My people
The golden feet of the Zionist idol gleam from over a century of kisses by evangelical leaders. Such leaders and their followers are morally numbed and disoriented as a result of habitually obeying the counsel of this false oracle. It is time evangelical shepherds rediscover and boldly teach the many New Testament dictums warning against the enticements of apostate Jewry. 2 They should fear God alone, despising the inevitable epithet "anti-Semitic" that Jewish leadership will hurl against them.
The Bible teaches that Christ at His second coming will resurrect a believing remnant from the dry bones of Jewish unbelief. But for the present, Scripture is clear: Jews who reject and oppose Christ are "enemies of the gospel" (Rom. 11:28), "those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan."(Rev. 2:9) If Jews are not obedient, they are not God's chosen people and have no right to the Promised Land.
Wreckers of Civilization
Today, Jewish-dominated media and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, headed by pious Orthodox Jew Abraham Foxman, force-feed America’s youth with immorality and a pro-homosexual educational curriculum. (See, ADL's Foxman: Man of Faith?; Judaism and Homosexuality: A Marriage Made in Hell; Pedophilia: The Talmud's Dirty Secret) ADL and a host of other liberal Jewish activist organizations work overtime to strip America of public Christian symbols, observance, and prayer and what remains of respect for God and Christian values in government. (See, Jews Confirm Big Media Is Jewish and ACLU Top Heavy with Jews)
Judaism's most authoritative legal and spiritual guide, the Talmud, repeatedly teaches Jews that they are entitled to lie, cheat, and cause the death of Christians and Gentiles. The Jewish Kabala (considered by observant Jews to be, like the Talmud, divinely inspired Scripture) encourages Jews to use the most destructive and devious tools to erode Christian civilization so the "enlightened" monotheism of Judaism can "restore order" in the world. 3
The torrent of anti-Christian, pro-homosexual hate, speech and bias crimes legislation now flooding state legislatures and Congress is primarily the work of liberal Jewish activism led by ADL. (See, Hate Laws Begin at www.ADL.org) This agenda is supported by the vast majority of American Jews, who vote Democratic and advance abortion rights, open immigration, gay marriage, and a divide between church and state so harsh it denies religious freedom to Christians. (See, Jews Pressure Bush to Sign Hate Bill)
Instead of identifying and resisting Jewish activism, evangelicals protect such Jews under an umbrella of unlimited favor. Blinded by the pathos of the Holocaust industry and false covenant theology, evangelicals have created a fertile social environment in which the lies and anti-Christianity of Jewish activism flourish. Although Dr. Dobson may call for national revival, Judaism's evil leadership works constantly to make such revival unlikely. Under cover of an anonymity guaranteed by evangelicals, they work behind the scenes to create ever more media assaults, perverse laws, and destructive foreign policy. In short, liberal Jewish activism destroys our freedom and Christian culture much faster than any religious revival might restore them. Because of the infinite fecundity of the "synagogue of Satan" to produce evil, and evangelical protectionism of it, such moral and legislative victories as Dr. Dobson and the new right are struggling to attain are doomed to be extremely short-lived.
The greatest threat facing America is not Islamic extremism but the Zionist idol that dominates not only America but the entire world. There is no doubt we are experiencing an upsurge of arrogant Jewish activism and ambition unrivalled in history (except perhaps for the Jewish Bolshevik takeover of Russia in 1917).
What remains very much in doubt is whether there exist within Christianity leaders like Gideon with sufficient character and courage to push the idol over.
1 Scripture overwhelmingly teaches that the Jews will only be allowed to return to Palestine after national repentance. Ezekiel 36.24, however, states, "….I will take you from the nations, gather you from all the lands, and bring you to your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean…" This solitary passage is seized upon by Zionist evangelicals as proving God endorsed statehood of Israel in 1948 and performs His work of Jewish revival there today.
What this text really implies is that subsequent to Jewish repentance at Christ's second coming, the remnant, survivors of the moral confusion of a world ruled by "Babylon the great, the mother of harlots," will undergo a gradual moral and intellectual cleansing, a reawakening to God's law. The Hebrews in Egypt humbled themselves before Moses and God "had respect unto them," but it took time for them to thoroughly know the difference between the clean and unclean. Ezekiel 36:24 merely confirms a similar future process of moral enlightenment.
2 Some of these warnings include Matthew 16:6, 11; I Thess. 2:15 and 22, 4.3; Acts 2:23 and 36, 3:18, 4:10, 5:30, 8:52.
3 The Talmud says, "The best of the Gentiles deserves to be killed." Abodah Zarah 26B. This dictum by one of the most revered sages of the Talmud, Simeon Ben Yohai, is the Israel Defense Force "proof text" (Halacha) authorizing killing of unarmed Palestinian men, women, and children. (See, The Talmud: Scalpel that Bleeds the Mideast) Many similar anti-Gentile and anti-Christian quotations are presented in my book Israel: Our Duty, Our Dilemma and to a lesser extent in my video The Other Israel viewable at video.google.com.
The Zohar or Kabbalah says: "Rabbi Jehuda said to him [Rabbi Chezkia]: 'He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the enemies of Israel, and the just are much to praised who get free from them and fight against them.' Rabbi Chezkia asked, 'How must we fight against them?' Rabbi Jehuda said, 'By wise counsel, thou shalt war against them. (Proverbs 24: 6) By what kind of war? The kind of war that every son of man must fight against his enemies, which Jacob used against Esau- by deceit and trickery wherever possible. They must be fought against without ceasing until proper order be restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we must free ourselves from them and rule over them.'" -- Zohar (I, 160a) 1
I submitted the original Aramaic version of this text, which I obtained from the Mantuan edition of the Zohar in the Library of Congress, to evangelical seminary professors of Hebrew and Aramaic. They pronounced the above translation by Rev. I. B. Pranaitis in The Talmud Unmasked to be perfectly correct.
