From ‘Now the End Begins’:
It is nothing more or less than a born again Christian who agrees that regathered Israel, since May 14th 1948, is the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, and that all the land of Israel still belongs, by eternal decree, to the Jewish people. That is all that Christian Zionism is.https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/chuck-baldwin-replacement-theology-false-teacher-jews-israel-christian-zionism/
Christian Zionism is a belief among some Christians that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land and the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 were in accordance with Bible prophecy.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Zionism
From christianzionism.org :
Christian Zionism merges theology and politics. It teaches that the secular State of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. Christian Zionism believes that this fulfillment of Biblical prophecy began when European Jews started moving to Palestine in the 1800s, and continued as Israel became a nation in 1948. Christian Zionists believe that modern Israel is a continuation of Biblical Israel and therefore should enjoy special privileges. They declare that it is the responsibility of Christians to support the State of Israel and its policies.
Pastor Chuck Baldwin strongly opposes this view with the suggestion that it was encouraged to facilitate a Jewish takeover of land belonging to the Palestinians.
I had been schooled in and personally believed and taught Israel-based Bible prophecy for over 30 years. After MUCH prayer, deliberation and personal study, however, I came to realize that everything I had been taught and had myself taught on the subject was patently FALSE. I now realize that the Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 has NOTHING to do with Biblical Israel.Source

Seventy Years Of Turmoil, Treachery, Death And Destruction
Four days from now, May 14, 2018, will mark the 70th anniversary of the creation of the Zionist State of Israel. Most Americans—and especially most Christians—labor under the delusion that the modern State of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy of ancient Jews returning to their homeland. Nothing could be further from the truth. As filmmaker Jason Charles writes,
It [the story of modern Israel] was not the struggle of an ancient people coming back to their land in 1948. Instead it was the struggle of the wealthiest family on earth using war and deception to gain control over the region at the behest of idealistic Zionist Jews during the late 1800’s. The Rothschild family became their champion and is the sole benefactor extraordinaire. Israel owes its very existence to the Rothschilds.
The reappearance of Israel as a nation state, and moreover [as] a Jewish state, has been nothing but turmoil for 70 years for the people of the world. A confluence of never-ending war, violence and lurid political meddling in world politics. Just like their Rothschild forefathers, Israel uses war, political manipulation, and subterfuge to assert dominance internationally. The tactics that kept the Rothschilds in power for literally 100’s of years are alive and well in the heart of Jerusalem.
Indeed. The creation of the Zionist State of Israel has brought turmoil, treachery, death and destruction that is almost unequalled in modern history. The Rothschild conspiracy to create its own Zionist state has its tentacles in both world wars and in virtually every significant act of war afterward.
Charles writes again:
It took two World Wars engineered and brought about by the Rothschild family to bring Israel into existence. WWI saw the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1918 giving Britain full control over Palestinian lands. The Rothschild family then pushed for the Balfour Declaration in 1926. The infamous Balfour Declaration reads,
November 2nd, 1917
Dear Lord Rothschild,
I have much pleasure in conveying to you. On behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.
His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.
I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.
Arthur James Balfour(Source)
So, WWI secured the rights to the land, while WWII secured the means to force European Jews to flee the wrath of Hitler and move to Israel during the Transfer Agreement. If you haven’t read about the Transfer Agreement you are badly misinformed about the true intentions of the Zionists during this time. Edwin Black’s book, the Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Secret Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine, goes into detail on this hidden history of WWII.
Jason is spot on. I distinctly remember several of my theology professors in college (two different colleges, in fact) telling us ministerial students (whether they were even aware of The Transfer Agreement isn’t known to me) that “World War I prepared the land for the Jews, and World War II prepared the Jews for the land.” And this was stated as if two world wars was a GOOD thing. So, if you think that Jason Charles’ assessment regarding the Rothschild conspiracy to create a Zionist state being a major catalyst for both world wars is fantasy, it is YOU who believes a fantasy.
One cannot even be true to history and ignore the fact that the Bolshevik Revolution that brought Marxist/Leninist/Stalinist communism to power in Russia was almost exclusively the handiwork of Rothschild’s Zionists. For all intents and purposes, communism and Zionism are one. They always have been and always will be.
As Charles notes:
The Bolshevik Revolution, a Wall Street and Rothschild funded endeavor, cost the lives of over 10 million people. This led up to WWI, which cost the lives of both military and civilians an estimated 25 million. Then shortly after, WWII caused the death of an estimated 80 million.
Christians need to come to grips with this painful truth: It took the deaths of over 115 million people to bring the Zionist State of Israel into existence. (This is “of God”?) And the Zionist state has caused the deaths of millions more since becoming a nation-state, as almost every war that America has fought since 1948 has been on behalf of Rothschild’s Israel, and America’s so-called war on terror is almost exclusively waged on behalf of the Zionist state.
There is even evidence to suggest that Israel was an active participant in the attacks on 9/11. (See Jason’s film 911 Core of Corruption In the Shadows embedded in his column.) It was those attacks that were the catalyst for America’s global “war on terror” that has included the invasions of two sovereign countries and the bombings of several others that had absolutely NOTHING to do with 9/11—not to mention the innumerable killings and assassinations by America’s CIA and Israel’s Mossad.
And there is absolutely no question that the U.S. government’s (Donald Trump is a Zionist puppet) intention to destroy the governments of Syria and Iran is nothing more than a bloody plot to force regime change (remember Iraq and Libya?) and bring those two recalcitrant Arab nations into the Rothschild/Federal Reserve central banking system—not to mention to help the Zionists in Tel Aviv to fulfill their goal of forming a “Greater Israel,” thus making Israel the dominant political and military force in the region. Of course, almost no one bothers to mention the fact that Israel has already obtained hundreds of nuclear missiles. If Israel has the right to nuclear weapons to protect itself, why doesn’t Iran have the same right?
All of the talk about Iran and Syria being a threat to Israel is a bunch of hooey. The truth is, Israel is a threat to Iran and Syria.
And as an aside, Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iranian treaty on Tuesday of this week is nothing but political smoke and mirrors. The only reason the U.S. government entered the agreement with Iran in the first place was because it fully expected Iran would break the treaty, thereby giving Israel and the U.S. an excuse to attack the economically rich (and Rothschild bank-free) country. However, since Iran KEPT the treaty (Netanyahu’s baseless accusations to the contrary), Trump had to pull out of the agreement so as to find another justification for attacking Iran.
The Hal Turner Radio Show is reporting that Israel began attacking Iranian assets in Syria almost immediately after President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Iranian treaty. He further reports that at least two Russian military personnel have been killed in these attacks. It is clear that Israel is willing to risk a major war with Russia and believes that President Trump will back his play with U.S. military action. Are Jewish and Christian Zionists in Israel and the United States on the verge of taking the planet into its third world war? If there is one thing that Zionists love, it’s war.
Since coming into existence, the Zionist State of Israel has produced more political turmoil and chaos and more death and destruction than anything in the world.
Think of the turmoil and chaos that the Zionist state has produced in America. Ask yourself: What did America’s families look like before 1948? What did America’s education systems look like before 1948? What did America’s entertainment industries look like before 1948? What did America’s culture look like before 1948? Across the board, America’s family/moral culture, entertainment culture, educational culture, etc., were distinctively Christian. So, what has happened to America’s Christian culture since 1948?
Since 1948, Zionists have virtually taken over America’s family/moral culture, educational culture, economic culture, entertainment culture, political culture and, yes, Christian culture. For the most part, Zionists control America’s entertainment industries, economic policies, educational systems, news networks (including and maybe especially FOX News) and America’s political and religious institutions.
A majority of Christian pastors, evangelists, TV and radio preachers, Christian school teachers, Bible college and seminary professors, etc., are proudly and outspokenly Zionist. For all intents and purposes, Christian Zionism has a monopoly on America’s evangelical Christian culture.
Who are the loudest proponents for America’s wars for Israel? Christian Zionists. Who were the loudest proponents of the military invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and bombings of Libya? Christian Zionists. Who are the loudest proponents for waging war against Iran and Syria? Christian Zionists. Who are the loudest supporters of the corrupt, lying, genocidal maniac Benjamin Netanyahu? Christian Zionists. Who are the loudest voices supporting Israel’s perpetual persecution against the Palestinian people—many of whom are devout Christians? Christian Zionists. Who are the loudest voices supporting the building of Israel’s “third temple” in Jerusalem, knowing that the Dome of the Rock will have to be destroyed first and tens of millions of people annihilated in order to build it? Christian Zionists.
And here is the creepy thing: These Christian Zionists who openly promote all of this death and destruction knowingly and consciously do so with the understanding that what they are doing also helps pave the way for a superhuman “antichrist” to rise to power in Israel, a Satan-possessed man who is destined to inflict even MORE death and destruction upon the world—especially upon the people of Israel. Yes! Christian Zionists are doing everything they can to “fulfill prophecy” and assist the rise of the antichrist, who will inflict “Great Tribulation” upon ISRAEL. (There will be no tribulation for the Christian Zionists, however, because they believe they will be “raptured” to Heaven first.) At the same time, they claim to be doing everything in SUPPORT of Israel and in the name of Christ’s Second Coming. Is this crazy, or what? They are claiming unflinching and unconditional support FOR Zionist Israel via massive death and destruction so the antichrist can come to Israel and inflict even MORE death and destruction, but this time UPON ISRAEL. I’m trying to get this straight. They support Israel bringing death and destruction upon others as a precursor to the antichrist coming and inflicting death and destruction upon Israel.
To quote the late great Ohio Congressman James Traficant, “Beam me up, Mr. Speaker!”
This is all convoluted, maddening and hyper-contradictory, I know. But that’s how deeply Christians have been seduced and deceived by Zionism.
The basis of all of this doctrinal discombobulation is the result of the massive acceptance of the prophetic perversions of C.I. Scofield’s Reference Bible, which spawned the growth of scores and hundreds of Bible colleges and seminaries, all regurgitating the egregiously erroneous application of the promises God gave to Abraham in Genesis 12:3 and Genesis 15:18 to the Rothschild-created Zionist State of Israel.
Jason Charles summarizes:
70 years of Israel has been a curse on the world, nothing more. As of this week the Rothschilds have a new dynasty heir, who will execute in ruthless fashion just like all the others before him.
“Alexandre de Rothschild, 37, was picked to replace his 75-year-old father, David de Rothschild, as the bank’s top executive. The successor will become the seventh generation of the dynasty to take charge of the Franco-British investment bank, which was founded in 1838.” (RT)
They plan on celebrating their 70th anniversary by launching another world war, and American Christian Zionists will cheer it on. That is the truth of the matter; Israel is a pariah state that will just end up making the world a more hostile place for everyone.
See Jason’s column here:
Jason is right. The advent of the Zionist State of Israel in 1948 has created more turmoil, confusion, division, bitterness, contention and downright hatred and bloodlust among Christian people than anything in 2,000 years of Church history. It has also created more political turmoil, war deaths and destruction than anything in 2,000 years of Western Civilization.
And lest someone attempts to label me as being “anti-Semitic,” let me remind them that there are tens of thousands of Jewish rabbis and Jewish people who are as adamantly opposed to the apartheid Zionist State of Israel as anyone. These same Jewish rabbis actively work for the “speedy and peaceful dismantlement of the State of Israel” (their words, not mine).
Sorry, come May 14, I won’t be celebrating.
