Doctrines of Demons: Evangelical Christians Abandoning Israel For “Palestinians”

israel_palestineThe evangelical movement away from supporting Israel isn’t new. But reading a column on WND entitled “Look who’s switching sides in Israeli-Arab conflict” more less drove home a point that is decidedly disturbing. Evangelical Christians have been the backbone of support for the state of Israel since 1948. The reason for this is because evangelical Christians know that Israel is the fulfillment of God’s everlasting covenant with his people, which CANNOT be broken.

(Genesis 15:5) Then the Lord took Abram outside and said, “Look at the sky and see if you can count the stars. That’s how many descendants you will have.”

This was God’s promise to Abram, before he became Abraham, that his descendants would number more than the stars in the sky.

(Jeremiah 31:35-37) 35 Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name: 36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. 37 Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.

What part of this is conditional? The Lord says that if the stars lose their light and the sea departs, so will Israel cease from being a nation before Him. Israel is his and his promise to Israel everlasting. His covenant is permanent.

And certain promises for Israel have yet to be fulfilled. When Israel became in nation in May 1948, the prophetic clock started ticking. Evangelical Christians knew it and offered their unending support for the nation, which serves as proof that God honors his covenants.

If God cut off Israel for denying the Jesus as the Messiah, after He swore an everlasting covenant with the Jews, how can Christians believe that He will honor a covenant with those who have trusted Jesus Christ as their savior? They can’t. For if He breaks his promise to Israel, He is not who He says He is. He is not bound to honor his covenant with those who have found forgiveness in the blood of Jesus Christ. This would make God a liar.

The Lord is perfect. It is man who lies and falls for doctrines of demons. Doctrines of demons implies worshiping other deities and experimenting with pagan practices. But this can also mean departing from the sound, Biblical doctrine. The Palestinian lie is just that, a falsehood. So in this case the doctrine of demons would be sympathizing with the devil via Islam and abandoning God’s chosen people, Israel.

“An interview with an American Christian commentator published by Israeli media this week reveals just how far the evangelical church has moved into the “Palestinian camp” when it comes to the Middle East conflict. But a new generation of evangelical leaders are “committed to spreading the Palestinian version of the conflict,” said Jim Fletcher, a long-time Christian publisher, in an interview published to Israel National News. “These pro-Palestinian leaders currently control the narrative within the church.

It appears then that not only are evangelicals abandoning Israel, they are taking up the false narrative of the “pro-Palestinian” camp, which is nothing but lies from Satan himself. The Palestinians are not even a real people. They’re displaced cast-offs from Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. And they are Muslims, with the full intent and purpose of destroying the Jewish state. Where is the logic?

There isn’t logic in this, except for the so-called logic of Replacement Theology. This leaves little wonder as to why the Church no longer values prophecy or sees any significance in the state of Israel. Replacement Theology implies that all the promises meant for Israel were somehow transferred to the Church. The church replaced Israel. If this is the case, God is not the God of covenants but of broken promises.

But this is most certainly part of the last days’ grand deception. No longer are churches schooled in the importance of Israel and the horrors of Islam. In all my 34 years I can’t remember hearing a single sermon on Israel growing up. It was all health, wealth, and prosperity. The church was blindsided long ago, and today, the church is willingly taking up the cross for the enemy. This is a direct affront to the Lord. But it fits with the last days wickedness and complete delusion.

And now, those championing the “Palestinian cause” are repeat offenders. According to Fletcher, there is a “massive effort … in the heart of the American evangelical church to lure its members to the Palestinian side.” As a result of that effort, it is now “severely mistaken to think that all evangelicals are pro-Israel.”

Among those evangelical leaders one should be wary of are Willow Creek Pastor Lynne Hybels, Saddleback Community Church Pastor Rick Warren, Dr. Gary Burge of Wheaton College and Christian publisher Cameron Strang.

All these names have been brought up before, seeking broad peace efforts and other ecumenical movements.

In the Palestinian narrative, emotion is predominant. The emphasis is on ‘land confiscations, checkpoints, detentions, beatings.’ What they call the ‘apartheid wall’ is also mentioned frequently,” explained Fletcher.

Excuse me? This is offensive, that Christians would take up the cause for the Palestinian terrorists, who have the blood of innocent Israelis dripping from the filthy hands. And the Church is deliberately turning away from Israel and taking up the Palestinian cause, their injustice. The only injustice here is what Palestinians and other Arabs have done to those living in Gaza. Using these people as pawns, for more money, and for a worldwide crusade against Israel. While the whole Arab world wishes Israel wiped off the map, it is the “Palestinian” peace process that dominates the Middle East narrative. These thugs take from Israel, and Israel gets nothing in return.

The remnants of evangelical support for Israel is dissipating. They’re leaving in droves to take up Satan’s cause for Islam, swayed by hypnotic doctrines of demons. The church seeks to have its ears tickled in these last days, fearing nothing, and waiting for this “peace” to happen. And quite possibly, for Israel to disappear. Everyone else wants Her to, why not the Church?

But The Lord made a covenant with Abraham. And He will fulfill it. Though the doctrines of men sway with the wind, God’s promises NEVER change. He will fulfill his everlasting promises to Israel.

(Psalm 122; 6-9).”Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper who love you. May peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, ‘May peace be within you.’ For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your good.”

Jesus Christ is coming soon for his Bride, the Church. For when the time of the Gentiles comes to a close, the Lord will restore Israel completely. He is the God of covenants and his promises are everlasting.

    I’ve read, I’ve studied and I’ve taught but still the speed of change and the depth of chaos absolutely amaze me. This is no time to be average. You’re going to want to be one of those religious nuts who reads and studies and teaches! Only His grace saves. So I study about grace as much as I can.

      Hi Dan,

      I’m not sure I get your point. You’re saying I want to be a “religious nut”? Of course, only His grace saves and it is certainly important to study about grace. It’s also important to study about hell and other areas of Scripture.

      While God most certainly is a God of grace, He is also just, righteous, omniscient, omni-present, holy, and so much more.

      The “speed of change and the dept of chaos” amazes you? I really wish I knew what you were talking about here, Dan.

        A mere 10 years ago the Constitution guaranteed my rights which it stated came from God. Now I have an already broken promise that the government will not arrest me for no good reason.(others have been arrested, not me)

        DOMA was the best thing ever, for a couple of years then it suddenly was the worst thing ever.

        That’s the speed part. I can’t believe it’s happened so fast.

        Laws used to come from congress, as directed by the constitution. Today laws come from a myriad of places. Some of which remain unknown! Who wrote the 2400 pages of Obamacare? The president just issued an executive order compelling the federal government to fight global warming. Which is something that doesn’t exist.

        That’s the depth of chaos part. I can’t believe things are this crazy.

        If you are someone who has not read scripture or studied scripture, you’re about to wish you had! Well enough to teach. Because nothing else is going to matter real soon.

        People who are ‘hot’ for Jesus have already been used as examples. Warm is not good enough, you’d better be ‘nuts’ about your savior.

        Okay, I think I hear what you are saying. My wife and I were just talking about this the other day. It is incredible how quickly things have gone downhill. It appears that the enemy of our souls via his human followers have ramped up their aggressive attacks in order to get things into place like ramparts against a walled city.

        I definitely believe we have come passed the point of no return.

        You’re right. We have entered the arena where it is not good enough to attend church or pray (nor has it ever been). Now especially is the time to be “all in” for Jesus or not bother at all.

    (OT: FTA: …and experimenting with pagan practices…

    Hmmm…the “golden calf” known as X mass, too, with the pagan Tree and Yule Log, to name a few? 😕 )

    Its not just the Replacement Theology group who cannot seem to distinguish between spiritual Israel and the nation Israel, its also the blasephemous Chrislam and emergent church who are being influenced by islamists posing as Christians. They want American Christians to believe that Israel is treating Arab Christians terribly. Taqqiya in practice and gullibilty making lies into “truth.” 😦

      Thanks for your comments, Sherry. The whole thing is rather tragic, in my opinion, but a definite sign of the times.
