One reason for this phenomenon is due to the fact that a majority of Christians (in the United States) are premillennialist dispensationalists. Those who have read my rant - "An Open Message to Premillennialist Zionist Christians" will understand at least the points that I make regarding the flawed eschatological assumptions behind this understanding of things to come. Zionist Christians believe that by "standing with Israel," they are doing what they are supposed to do according to Scripture. What they fail to understand is that Scripture actually points to a time when "the land" extends well beyond a small strip of land in Palestine. The "land" referred to in Scripture actually refers to the Cosmos (i.e. the entire new "earth" and new "universe"). That is the newly redeemed "Israel" that we all should be longing for!
I should also mention that back in 1948, the Jews who took Palestine by brute force, ordered both Arabs and Christians to leave Palestine within hours! The Christians were forced into the outskirts of Nazareth with no home. Many Zionist Christians are not aware of this fact. Yet, so many Christians today continue to support Israel, because they believe this is the right thing to do.
Now, that we have discussed "the land," I will now address the issue of the "chosen people." The "chosen people" that will inhabit this newly redeemed "land" ("Israel") will be those who accept Jesus as their Saviour (Jew or Gentile alike)! In fact, in the new (current) covenant, there is no distinction between a Jew or a Gentile in the eyes of God. The only distinction is this: Do you follow Jesus or do you follow the world (i.e. run by Satan)? Those following Jesus Christ are God's chosen!
Jews that are followers of Judaism, are by default, rejectors of Jesus the Christ. By default, they follow the world run by Satan. And, the evidence of this fact has been proven time and again by their way of living and behaving. Many Jews have chosen to serve mammon (money) and the rest is history. They run the US Federal Reserve and other Central Banks in other parts of the world, and that is how they run the world for their own personal gain. We have all seen the wickedness of the Jew's deeds, and all of this has been and is being documented in human history, as well as in the scrolls in Heaven!
All the above said, the Jewish elite controllers have managed to accomplish a feat that is absolutely amazing! They have managed to convince so many Christian Americans that 'support of modern-day Israel' is "of the Lord!" It is literally a fact that Judaism runs and controls a majority of Christianity! How have we come to this point of insanity?
One thing I can say is this: US Presidents (controlled by the Jewish elite), for decades, have been in staunch support of the nation of Israel and assisted in its creation. In October 1994, President Bill Clinton made the statement that it is a sin not to support Israel. Further to that, he pledged unconditional support of Israel forever and without fully defined limits. Those who want to learn real information about the fraud of Israel's seizing of Palestine, as well as what the real Israel will look like, I urge you to buy and read "The Israel of God: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow." You should read this book even before reading my book. In my book, I stick more to Biblical eschatology and guidance principles (30%), and to survival and privacy topics (70%). I don't delve into the topic of Zionism. Those who read Robertson's book will have an epiphany! What you read, will reach down into your soul, because what you will read is the truth.
A second point is that the Jewish elite have managed to convince Christian conservative neocons (in particular) is that it is "proper," "politically correct," and "religiously correct" to 'stand with the current nation of Israel.' While it is true that neolibs also stand with Israel (some times without really knowing it), the neocons (and Christian right) do so fully believing that 'standing with Israel' is the 'right thing' to do, and they do so in a very staunch manner. Now if that is not an example of "mind-control," I don't know what is!
Now, to close out this discussion, I will pose a rhetorical question to the neocon Christian conservatives: The return to "the land" (Israel) in Bible prophecy refers to a new fully redeemed Israel. Does the Israel (of 1948) meet this criteria?
Refer to Romans 8:22, 23 (HCSB) when answering the above question:
22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together with labor pains until now.
23 And not only that, but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the firstfruits—we also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.
The "whole creation" refers to "the land" from the new covenant perspective, not to the strip of land in Palestine. And the "redemption" (and paradise) that is foreseen is not a return to the shadowy forms of the old covenant, but rather, it means a rejuvenation of the entire earth (i.e., "the land" of the new covenant in Jesus Christ)!
Also ask yourself this rhetorical question: Does the Israel of 1948 meet the definition in Romans 8 above? As I can see, this Israel has seen nothing but attacks from their neighboring Arabs ever since! Further, the nation of Israel has been engaged in nearly every corrupt act that any nation (of power) can be engaged in. Who in their right mind would consider that to be God's redemption?
The Israel of today is an Israel that is lost in sin, destruction, and corruption!! Why do American Christian conservatives continue to support this current Israel of 1948? Why do they continue to support her sinful ways, no different than that of any other sinful nation?
