CAN ANTI-ZIONIST EDUCATION SAVE US?
By Rev. Ted Pike

For 30 years, I have done my share to bring to the attention of the church and the world the reality of the threat of Jewish supremacism. During that time, I have tried my hardest to convince my fellow evangelicals of that threat. The Zionist conspiracy toward world domination has been slowed as a result of my efforts and those of many others. But it has hardly stopped. Today, thousands of evangelicals visit our website truthtellers.org and its Bible studies, yet many tens of millions of Christians still fawningly support Israel, perhaps more than when I first began my public witness in 1983 with publication of my book Israel: Our Duty, Our Dilemma. (Available at Truthtellers.org) How effective is it to continue to try to change the minds of an enormous group of people so resistant to truth?
To understand the difficulty of deprogramming the Zionist evangelicals, we must understand certain facts about human nature. First, human beings, including Christians, are social creatures. We are very much the product of traditions we have received, largely unquestioned, from parents, teachers and authorities approved by our culture. The modern pro-Zionist church has now existed for well over a century, firmly entrenched in the primarily Calvinist premise of unconditional salvation and the tradition of also imputing such covenantal terms to Jews and Israel. As such, the average pro-Israel evangelical is immersed in great error by the social network of friends and relatives of like minds, irrevocably entwined like the root system of a great potted plant. Even the clearest Biblical evidence presented by the anti-Zionist pales before social considerations such as: "How will I be viewed by all my friends, relatives and pastor if I forsake modern Israel and view her as evil?" When the anti-Zionist Christian presents new truth concerning the Bible’s stringent requirement that Jews must obey God in order to occupy Palestine, have a covenant with God, or be called a Jew in the Biblical sense, such ideas send social shockwaves through the minds of the pro-Zionist evangelicals.
Without an active divine awakening, Zionist Christians are unable to process truth concerning Talmudic Judaism's depravity even though it is clearly taught by the Bible they claim to virtually worship. Instead, like a trapped animal snapping at a deliverer who wants to release it, their instinct is to destroy such truth by vilification of the truthteller. Often, they are taught not to engage in conversation with critics of Israel, and their Zionist programmers have provided all the necessary conditioning so they see truthtellers as anti-Semite haters and those who curse God’s chosen people.
Such an emotional and unreasoning Zionist-programmed reaction is in fact intensifying within evangelical ranks. The church has become very aware of divestment efforts against Israel by liberal Protestant denominations, protest against Israel on college campuses, and swelling criticism of Israel and Jewish control on the alternative anti-Zionist right. The reaction of the pro-Zionist church is not to involve themselves in intelligent polemics or discussion. That is impossible since Israel’s behavior is indefensible and Jewish control of government, media, and finance is inarguable.
Of course, if a Zionist evangelical will engage in civil conversation, our duty and even privilege is to share the truth with them. Certainly, Jesus spoke to everyone, including the Pharisees, leading several Pharisees to salvation. Our only quarrel is with those Zionist evangelicals who feel it is their privilege to be abusive toward us and the light we bring.
Increasingly, however, the church hunkers down, refusing to listen as its main defense against fellow Christians who attempt to bring new truth. It demonizes and expels the truthteller.
Going Beyond Zionist Evangelicals
How do we as anti-Zionist Christians respond? A very important principle and spiritual directive from Jesus is this: If after diligent inquiry whether worthiness is to be found in a group of people it is not found, then the Christian is not to strive further to persuade them, cheapening himself and the truth. Let's read Christ’s instructions:
As you enter the home, give it your greeting. If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town." (Matthew 10:12-15)
Jesus is telling us to leave and go elsewhere when we find such rejection by the broad body of evangelical Zionists. Jesus and Paul had to do this with the Jewish nation, Martin Luther had to do it with the Catholic Church, and it is time to effectively do it toward truth-rejecting, even persecutive Zionist evangelicals. In the Scripture we just read Jesus is making it a great sin, actually worse than the sin of Sodom, for a Zionist evangelical to say to a fellow Christian attempting to communicate truth to him concerning Israel: "I don’t have to listen to anything you say." It's an even greater sin to call the truthteller an anti-Semite doing the work of Satan. Jesus said if you deliberately call any human being a fool you are in danger of hell fire. The Jews have made the smear term "anti-Semitic" descriptive of a person on a level with a child molester, and Zionist evangelicals commonly not only say they don’t have to listen to anti-Zionist Christians but relegate them to the status of child molesters. The increasingly closed doors of Zionist Christianity necessitate a constructive and Biblical response from anti-Zionist Christians.
Jesus said we are not to put the new wine of truth and divine direction into old bottles.
“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.” (Mark 2:21-22)
How do we fill new bottles of truth and deliverance today? I feel that the new wine is a new conviction of God’s ability and willingness to save our nation as a result of sufficient piety and faith, not just anti-Zionist argument and education. As we deepen ourselves in dedication to Him and lead others to do likewise, we gain a new enthusiasm for the ways and law of God that is both spiritual but also fully cognizant of the physical threat posed by the synagogue of Satan. This is similar to what the king and all the people of pagan Nineveh did, participating in a great outpouring of collective humility, repentance, and prayer that God might stem His wrath. God saw their contrition and changed His mind about destroying the city. He can change His mind about destroying America as well, at least in our time.
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (II Chronicles 7:14)
That promise of God is part of His reputation and credibility as the great Deliverer of all who call upon Him in faith. Although Babylon the Great will one day envelop and control the earth, God can honor our faith with a stay of execution in our time if He finds sufficient obedience in America. The new bottle that anti-Zionist evangelicals must now fill is development of the full potentiality of a return to authentic Christianity. We must not hope in or unduly concern ourselves with the old Israel-first bottles, hoping to remake vast millions of evangelicals into a vanguard of defense against the coming Jewish antichrist world government. Occupying new bottles means leaving off confrontation with abusive and reviling pro-Zionist people and even pastors in our churches. It even means going beyond considering our duty done when we have informed others of the evils of Zionism and Jewry. It's now becoming increasingly clear that that these two approaches, argument and information, though legitimate and vital, are unable to deliver.
What we need is firm conviction in the Biblically buttressed belief that God can and will postpone conquest by Babylon the Great if enough turn their hearts and attention to Him, asking His mercy. This conviction must be so strong that we rally our friends and fellow Christians like the people of Nineveh to collectively hope in God's mercy. The potency of this new wine is based on God’s promise that even a minority of any population turned entirely to Him will empower His willingness to hold back the darkness. Zionist evangelicals have gone so far astray from truth that their only destiny is to continue the pattern they have established over the past century: building up Babylon the Great until the Zionists either convert them to Judaism or destroy them.
Humanly speaking, there is no hope; but spiritually speaking:
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging." (Psalm 46:1-3)
The Zionist right must abandon hope that education alone can create social protest of sufficient magnitude to topple entrenched Jewish power. We all would like to see, as with the fall of the Soviet Union, a quick fix to the "Jewish problem." It's not going to happen. Jewish supremacism has its talons too deeply impaled in the major sources of power and influence in Western society.
Although the anti-Zionist right has an insatiable hunger for hearing how bad Judaism and Jewish supremacism and Israel are, proliferation of such knowledge alone will not save us. It will not solve the problem of Jewish control and corruption or the trouble and confusion created by relentless Jewish attack groups such as ADL and SPLC. If a groundswell of outrage and action against Jewish power could indeed assume titanic global proportions, leading to the kind of consensus among nations as existed in the Middle Ages, sanctioning Jewish expulsion (which, of course, I do not recommend), then such a scenario of deliverance through education might have merit. But the Jewish media’s powers to corrupt society, especially the youth, have created such rapid decay in morals and character, even in less than a generation, that people of character and conviction necessary to facilitate deliverance from Zionist oppressions are increasingly difficult to find.
It is now demonstrably clear that muckraking more and yet more dirt against this conspiracy will not save us. This is primarily a spiritual problem, not a political one, and the answer must be spiritual. Please join us at Truthtellers.org Bible studies as we explore the many divinely encouraged ways to elicit favor from God. It is God’s fervent desire that all Christians in the anti-Zionist right become specialists in authentic Christianity, deliverers of society, and powerful examples of true Christianity in all its courage and righteousness.
