ZIONISM: AMERICAN IDOL
By Rev. Ted Pike
22 May 07
Dr. James Dobson devoted last week’s airtime to the grave
threat to freedom now facing America. Spiritual revival, he said,
is the ultimate solution. He couldn’t be more right. Yet what
is revival? In the Old Testament, revival included more than repentance;
the Hebrews also had to destroy all their idols.
What is an idol? It's not just an effigy of wood or stone. It's
an alternate source of guidance, competing with God's guidance and
Such an "idol," or false guidance system, exists in America
and the world today. The pseudo-Biblical Zionist ideology idolizes
Jews by asserting a monumental lie: that Jews have an unconditional
covenant from God to be blessed by Him no matter what they do.
One of the most important yet neglected ethical questions of the
last century is: "Do Jews have to obey God to merit His blessing
as 'God's chosen people?' Do they also have to obey in order to have
rights to Palestine?" Modern Talmudic Judaism and Zionism emphatically
reply, "No!" The Bible just as emphatically says, "Yes!"
Most evangelicals agree with the Jews.
For the past century, evangelicalism has been guided in its relationship
to Jews, matters Jewish and Zionist Israel by this false, idolatrous
guidance system. This “idol” continues, contrary to Scripture,
to counsel Christians that they must provide unconditional moral,
military, and economic approval to Israel, right or wrong.
Nowhere does the Bible suggest the heretical idea that any person
or group of people, rejecting and disparaging Christ, can expect
blessing from God. Nor do such people have the right to demand it
from those who do obey God, the saints. Yet such obligation to bless
and support unbelieving Jews is taught by evangelicals and Jews as
the law of God.
Biblical Guidance in an Age of Delusion
What does the Bible really say about God’s attitude (and
Christians’ duty) to Israel? It says God's covenant and promises
of spiritual and territorial blessing upon Abraham and his descendants
were conditional upon obedience. God's covenant with Abraham came
into existence in response to Abraham's obedience; it is sustained
through the same obedience in his descendants.
Notice God's conditional terms in the following foundational verses:
"Walk before Me and be blameless, and I will establish My covenant
between Me and you." --Genesis 17:1,2
"And in your seed, all the nations of the earth shall be blessed,
because you have obeyed My voice." --Genesis 22:18
"For I have chosen him in order that he may command his children
and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing
righteousness and justice; in order that the Lord may bring upon
Abraham what He has spoken about him (the blessings of God's covenant)." --Genesis
And to Isaac, his son, God confirms: "…by your descendants
shall all the nations of the earth be blessed: because Abraham obeyed
Me…" -- Genesis 26:4-5
The Palestinian covenant lays down God's timeless requirement that
Jews must follow Abraham’s example in order to enter Canaan
and abide in it.
"If…you do not obey Me, by acts of hostility against
Me, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you…" "You…I
will scatter among the nations…" --Leviticus 26: 27,
If Israel rebels, God warns, "you shall be torn from the land
where you are entering to possess it…the Lord will scatter
you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other…" --Deuteronomy
However, if the Jews "return to the Lord your God and obey
Him with all your heart and soul…then the Lord God will restore
you from captivity…and gather you again from all the peoples
where the Lord your God has scattered you." --Deuteronomy
30: 2, 3 1
But national repentance and obedience was not part of Israel’s
birth as a nation in 1948! Zionists pushed their way into Palestine
through violence, deceit, and brutal dispossession of the Christians
and Muslims living in the Promised Land. Israel today is a spiritually
counterfeit, racist state founded in utter rejection of their true
messiah, Jesus Christ. (See, The
Simple Explanation for Mid-East Strife)
Come out of her, My people
The golden feet of the Zionist idol gleam from over a century of
kisses by evangelical leaders. Such leaders and their followers are
morally numbed and disoriented as a result of habitually obeying
the counsel of this false oracle. It is time evangelical shepherds
rediscover and boldly teach the many New Testament dictums warning
against the enticements of apostate Jewry. 2 They should fear God
alone, despising the inevitable epithet "anti-Semitic" that
Jewish leadership will hurl against them.
The Bible teaches that Christ at His second coming will resurrect
a believing remnant from the dry bones of Jewish unbelief. But for
the present, Scripture is clear: Jews who reject and oppose Christ
are "enemies of the gospel" (Rom. 11:28), "those who
say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan."(Rev.
2:9) If Jews are not obedient, they are not God's chosen people and
have no right to the Promised Land.
Wreckers of Civilization
Today, Jewish-dominated media and the Anti-Defamation League of
B’nai B’rith, headed by pious Orthodox Jew Abraham Foxman,
force-feed America’s youth with immorality and a pro-homosexual
educational curriculum. (See, ADL's Foxman:
Man of Faith?; Judaism
and Homosexuality: A Marriage Made in Hell; Pedophilia:
The Talmud's Dirty Secret) ADL and a host of other liberal Jewish activist organizations
work overtime to strip America of public Christian symbols, observance,
and prayer and what remains of respect for God and Christian values
in government. (See, Jews Confirm
Big Media Is Jewish and ACLU
Top Heavy with Jews)
Judaism's most authoritative legal and spiritual guide, the Talmud,
repeatedly teaches Jews that they are entitled to lie, cheat, and
cause the death of Christians and Gentiles. The Jewish Kabala (considered
by observant Jews to be, like the Talmud, divinely inspired Scripture)
encourages Jews to use the most destructive and devious tools to
erode Christian civilization so the "enlightened" monotheism
of Judaism can "restore order" in the world. 3
The torrent of anti-Christian, pro-homosexual hate, speech and
bias crimes legislation now flooding state legislatures and Congress
is primarily the work of liberal Jewish activism led by ADL. (See,
Hate Laws Begin at www.ADL.org) This agenda is supported by the vast
majority of American Jews, who vote Democratic and advance abortion
rights, open immigration, gay marriage, and a divide between church
and state so harsh it denies religious freedom to Christians. (See,
Jews Pressure Bush to Sign Hate Bill)
Instead of identifying and resisting Jewish activism, evangelicals
protect such Jews under an umbrella of unlimited favor. Blinded by
the pathos of the Holocaust industry and false covenant theology,
evangelicals have created a fertile social environment in which the
lies and anti-Christianity of Jewish activism flourish. Although
Dr. Dobson may call for national revival, Judaism's evil leadership
works constantly to make such revival unlikely. Under cover of an
anonymity guaranteed by evangelicals, they work behind the scenes
to create ever more media assaults, perverse laws, and destructive
foreign policy. In short, liberal Jewish activism destroys our freedom
and Christian culture much faster than any religious revival might
restore them. Because of the infinite fecundity of the "synagogue
of Satan" to produce evil, and evangelical protectionism of
it, such moral and legislative victories as Dr. Dobson and the new
right are struggling to attain are doomed to be extremely short-lived.
The greatest threat facing America is not Islamic extremism but
the Zionist idol that dominates not only America but the entire world.
There is no doubt we are experiencing an upsurge of arrogant Jewish
activism and ambition unrivalled in history (except perhaps for the
Jewish Bolshevik takeover of Russia in 1917).
What remains very much
in doubt is whether there exist within Christianity leaders like
Gideon with sufficient character and courage to push the idol over.
1 Scripture overwhelmingly teaches
that the Jews will only be allowed to return to Palestine after
national repentance. Ezekiel 36.24, however, states, "….I will take you from the nations,
gather you from all the lands, and bring you to your own land. Then
will I sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean…" This
solitary passage is seized upon by Zionist evangelicals as proving
God endorsed statehood of Israel in 1948 and performs His work of
Jewish revival there today.
What this text really implies is that subsequent
to Jewish repentance at Christ's second coming, the remnant, survivors
of the moral confusion of a world ruled by "Babylon the great, the mother of harlots," will
undergo a gradual moral and intellectual cleansing, a reawakening
to God's law. The Hebrews in Egypt humbled themselves before Moses
and God "had respect unto them," but it took time for them
to thoroughly know the difference between the clean and unclean.
Ezekiel 36:24 merely confirms a similar future process of moral enlightenment.
2 Some of these warnings include Matthew 16:6, 11; I Thess. 2:15
and 22, 4.3; Acts 2:23 and 36, 3:18, 4:10, 5:30, 8:52.
3 The Talmud says, "The best of the Gentiles deserves to be
killed." Abodah Zarah 26B. This dictum by one of the most revered
sages of the Talmud, Simeon Ben Yohai, is the Israel Defense Force "proof
text" (Halacha) authorizing killing of unarmed Palestinian men,
women, and children. (See, The Talmud:
Scalpel that Bleeds the Mideast)
Many similar anti-Gentile and anti-Christian quotations are presented
in my book Israel: Our Duty, Our Dilemma and to a lesser extent in
my video The Other Israel viewable at video.google.com.
The Zohar or Kabbalah says: "Rabbi Jehuda said to him [Rabbi
Chezkia]: 'He is to be praised who is able to free himself from the
enemies of Israel, and the just are much to praised who get free
from them and fight against them.' Rabbi Chezkia asked, 'How must
we fight against them?' Rabbi Jehuda said, 'By wise counsel, thou
shalt war against them. (Proverbs 24: 6) By what kind of war? The
kind of war that every son of man must fight against his enemies,
which Jacob used against Esau- by deceit and trickery wherever possible.
They must be fought against without ceasing until proper order be
restored. Thus it is with satisfaction that I say we must free ourselves
from them and rule over them.'" -- Zohar (I, 160a) 1
I submitted the original Aramaic version of this text, which I obtained
from the Mantuan edition of the Zohar in the Library of Congress,
to evangelical seminary professors of Hebrew and Aramaic. They pronounced
the above translation by Rev. I. B. Pranaitis in The
Talmud Unmasked to be perfectly correct.
