CUFI hosts a who's who banquet of Armageddonists

John Hagee, founder of Christians United for [Armageddon in] Israel (CUFI), an astounding group of heads of state, senators, and other leaders gather to pay homage to the theological cancer eating away at America's civilized foundations.

So who is tossing their weight behind the destructive Armageddonist theology?

Netanyahu's Pack of Wolves Example

As I sat there listening to Netanyahu speaking on the same platform as John Hagee, the Armageddonist extremist, I began reflecting on Netanyahu's pack of wolves example. It goes something like this:

Palestinians are like a pack of wolves chasing a pick up truck with sheep on it. Everytime Israel makes a concession, it's like the shepherd throwing a sheep to the wolves. As soon as they eat it up , they start chasing the truck again. What the shepherd needs to do is take that shot gun and get rid of the wolves.
From the context you can read all sorts of things including the following:
  • The Palestinians are the pack of wolves: there is nothing you can do to satisfy them except kill them.
  • The sheep represent Israel: The innocent party in need of protection.
  • The driver is Israel's shepherd: A role proudly adopted by Armageddonists.
Someone needs to tell the sheep that the shepherd one day plans to slaughter them. More precisely, as a Jewish man, Netanyahu must be aware of John Hagee's belief that the destruction of Jewish society is part of what must happen when Jesus returns. To the Palestinians, this is a clear signal that at least some segment of Israeli society sees the desire of Palestinians to have their own state as an insatiable appetite for territory. What can be done about this? If Palestinians request half the Gaza strip to ease these concerns, even that would be considered as just the first bite out of Isreal; to be followed by endless bites. This view is also held by Armageddonists. For this reason, the only way forward for Palestinians is to demand equality under the existing Israeli state, rather than reaching for an independent state which is held before them like mirage of water in front of a thirsty desert traveler.

Palestinian Christian Resonse to Armageddonism

I found this article to be of interest. Here's an excerpt:

Describing the Evangelical Zionist's immoral and heretical interpretation of biblical prophetic and apocalyptic texts, Rev. Michael Prior concludes that the god of such revelation is a "militaristic and xenophobic genocidist..."

Apocalyptic Genocide is exactly what John Nelson Darby had in mind when he began preaching in the 1800s that Jews should be restored to Jerusalem. At that time, he was rebuffed by Jewish leaders since they lead prosperous lives in Europe. But after the mayhem and panic caused by the the Nazi crimes, Jews were more willing to take up the offer and join hands with Armageddonists to embark on the Zionist experiment.

At present, Jewish Zionists believe they are using the gullible Christian Zionist. While the Christian Zionist believes he is using the Jew as a tool for fulfilling prophesy; ever instilling in him the threat of annihilation and subjecting him to psychological operations to make him spurn any peace deal with Palestinians. Ever pushing him to attack the enemies whose destruction should (according to their extremist interpretations) usher in the return of the Lord and Savior to rule over the earth for a thousand years.

This is why Ronald Reagan said, "We may be the generation that sees Armageddon"

This is why the little boy in the Jesus Camp documentary says, "I believe my generation is key to Jesus coming back"

Armageddonists - similar to Hitler's 3rd Reich

Christian Zionists (Armageddonists), despite all their professed love for Israel, share a central theme in common with Hitler's 3rd Reich: that a point in time exists when the role of Jews in History will end.

Because Nazi Germany believed that point had passed, they attempted to wipe out Jews through genocide; Armageddonists, on the other hand, disagree only about when the role of Jews in history will end. Not if, but when it will happen. They believe that there is one more mission for Jews: to fight the battle of Armageddon in order to fulfill their extremist interpretation of prophesy which once fulfilled leads to the return of Jesus Christ.

The role of Palesinians and Arabs in the region is to be destroyed completely in the battle of Armageddon so that God's glory may be known. At this point also, the role of Jews in history ends and they must accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour or die. This is why Armageddonists write books such as "Countdown Jerusalem." The countdown to the end of the role of Jews in History.

If they were to whisper advice into Hitler's ear, it would be "Not yet, now is not the time."

Therefore, it is time for everyone living in Israel to talk about living together in a United State of Israel-Palestine, rather than playing along with the Armageddonist game of let's talk peace and do war till Jesus Christ comes back to sort out the situation.
