Strange Bedfellows

Christian fascination with the idea of Israel “premillennial dispensationalism”, can be found in Apocalypsis Apocalypseos, written by Anglican clergyman Thomas Brightman in 1585.1621, a member of the British Parliament, Henry Finch, wrote: “ (Jews) shall repair to their own country, shall inherit all of the land as before, shall live in safety, and shall continue in it forever.” Louis Way, an Anglican clergyman taught that the Jews return to Palestine is the first stage to the Messiah.In the 1880s, William Hechler, saw Herzl as ordained by God to fulfill the prophetic scriptures.Then-British Prime Minister David Lloyd-George and Balfour had religious interest in Zionism.

Self-proclaimed Christian Zionist organizations such as the International Christian Embassy-Jerusalem and the US-based Bridges for Peace have been operating for years.Christian Zionists work with the Israeli government,Zionist organizations, and are particularly empowered during periods when Likud is in control.

Christian Zionists wait for a series of wars pointing to the return of Jesus. The establishment of Israel,building of the Temple,rise of the Antichrist and the buildup of armies to attack Israel.As an apocalyptic theology, they look for the escalation of power aligned to the Antichrist, who, will do battle with Israel.

Christian Zionism is a growing political force with branches of Protestant, Presbyterian, United Methodist, Lutheran and other churches. It thrives during periods of political and economic unrest in the Middle East.Some estimate that 20-25 million American hold these views. This included US Attorney General John Ashcroft, Israel’s Ambassador to the US Daniel Ayalon, Southern Baptist Convention leader Richard Land,and Tom Lantos.

I warn you...

    Is that claiming that Israeli ambassador to the USA Daniel Ayalon is a Christian who wants to sacrifice Israel on the altar of their Apocalypse?

    And Tom Lantos is Jewish. So how does he fit on a list of Christians with "premillenial dispensationalism" plans?

    This wary relationship dates far back. Reportedly, Menachem Begin gave Graham a leer jet for a gift in the 1970's.
