A number of evangelical groups are rejecting the Israeli narrative of events in strife-torn Palestine. (See Soros Funds Palestinian-Friendly Evangelicals)Some of these groups escort evangelicals to the West Bank to hear the wrenching stories of Palestinian Christians.
Unfortunately, many of these groups and their followers believe the exact opposite of pro-Zionist Scofield Dispensationalism (which asserts that God has a covenant destiny for redemption of Jews at Christ’s Second Coming). The opposite is replacement theology. (See A Simple Explanation of Scofield Dispensationalism) This interpretation says God is done with any covenant promises to the Jewish race. All Old Testament promises are now metaphors; the church inherits Abraham's blessings. Replacement theologians say virtually all Biblical prophecies were fulfilled in the events of 70 A.D. with the Roman destruction of Jerusalem. The New Testament provides no remaining “prophetic signposts” for today.
Yet Jesus said to His disciples and to the church in every age: “I will not leave you comfortless.” He mediates for His saints to God the Father and has sent them the “Comforter,” the Holy Spirit. He who is “the Spirit of prophecy” (Rev. 19:10) has inspired a wealth of prophetic Scripture which gives clear and detailed guidance about the events of the end times. I believe it is clear from a straightforward reading that these events are yet to come. Here is a simple chronology.
Today, increasing numbers, particularly of young evangelicals drift from the pro-Zionist, Scofield dispensationalist fold toward sympathy with the Palestinians and replacement theology. Many pro- and anti-Zionists make use of Scriptures they prefer, attempting to refute the other. Such conflict sparks heat but fails to produce enduring light.
The only light that can truly reorient is Biblical truth that must be humbly received. Eschatology is vital because it can help preserve us from Judaic/anti-Christ deception. It is sin to consciously manipulate Scripture, whether into either a pro-Zionist, sugar-coated "bless Israel" eschatology or an anti-Zionist, prophecy-erasing replacement theology. Both extremes are void of worthwhile present and future guidance. All who want to know the truth must sacrifice what we believe will further our conception of a “higher good.” We must seek the truth, especially the truth of Scripture, on its own terms. We must say, “Not my will but Thine be done.”
It is time for the Bible, enlightened by the Holy Spirit and shared between both camps, to speak for itself.
*I highly recommend my article "Does Christ's New Covenant Replace the Old?" for further in-depth refutation of replacement theology.
Hate crimes laws may make you a lawbreaker! Such laws, while claiming to promote tolerance, actually lead to the end of free speech! Powerful articles and NPN's new video exposé of hate crimes laws in Canada and the United States provide you with the vital tools necessary to combat this imminent threat to freedom. This video is especially important as acts of terrorism extend the power of "Big Brother" to monitor what you do, say, and think.

“Anti-Semitism Awareness” Bill Worse than “Equality” Bill! Good news! The Christian-threatening, LGBT- promoting “Equality Act” could not face confrontation with hostile Senate Judiciary Republicans this spring. It went nowhere. Yet Democrats could still try to get it through the Senate Judiciary. NPN will sound the alarm at Truthtellers.org if it starts to move forward.

If Jews acquire full protection as a “protected class” in America it will mean that if a Jew complains to the government that he has suffered “acute emotional trauma” as a result of “anti semitic” discrimination or criticism of his race or religion he may prompt a federal investigation. If the government agrees, the defendant will have to retain the best lawyer he can find.
