Pastor Denies Israel's Biblical Identity - Angers Flock
"The entire faith system of many professing Christians depends on their allegiance to the modern State of Israel. These Christian Zionists might recite a pledge of allegiance to the United States of America, but their true allegiance is to the State of Israel."
Chuck Baldwin, left, writes:
"With all of the controversial positions I have taken over my forty-plus years in the ministry, I have NEVER received the hate-filled opposition I am receiving right now because of my position that the modern State of Israel is NOT the Israel of the Bible or the "Israel of God." (Galatians 6:16) That position is NOT based on racism or prejudice or anything of the kind. It is based strictly on my study and understanding of the Holy Scriptures."A Reader writes:
"Chuck Baldwin is just beginning to experience the "spirit of murder" that lurks behind and fuels Christian Zionism! D.T. aligned himself with these people during his entire campaign. Woe to him if he ever betrays them. I have lived around Zionist and Evangelical Christians much of my life....and have been deserted and hated by many, including close friends. If you do not ascribe to every jot and tittle of their mind control program, you are not welcome in their Club. Pointing out contradictions and flaws in their beliefs is a No-No. End time prophecy, the rapture and the second coming all depend upon the State of Israel. If the lie is uncovered, Evangelical and Zionist Christianity will collapse."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the most corrupt political leaders on the planet. He is also one of the most heavily financed political leaders on the planet.
In spite of his billionaire friends and supporters, however, he is facing almost certain political destruction. His many crimes are being intensely investigated by Israeli authorities. The only reason he hasn't been removed from office already is due to the immense political and financial support he has from bankers, casino owners, land developers, etc., from other countries--especially in the United States.
But it is doubtful that Bibi will be able to tread water much longer. It appears that his political demise is inevitable. And you haven't heard a word about it from the controlled mainstream media in the U.S., have you? Of course not. The men who own the mainstream media are among Bibi's largest contributors.
Neither have you heard anything about it from the so-called conservative publications, periodicals and websites. There is one common denominator that links the mainstream media with the so-called conservative media: infatuation with the modern State of Israel.
Without a doubt, Netanyahu's plummet in popularity at home is one of the reasons (maybe the MAJOR reason) why he is pressuring Donald Trump to ratchet up a war against Iran and why he is mobilizing accelerated (illegal) Israeli settlements on private land owned by Palestinian people. War and military conflict has always been a favored tactic of embattled politicians to increase their popularity and deflect negativity. Neither does it hurt that Jared Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law and presidential adviser, is a MAJOR financial backer of the (illegal) land settlements.
One indicator that Netanyahu will be removed from office soon is longtime Bibi supporter, billionaire Sheldon Adelson, is starting to back away from the embattled Israeli Prime Minister. That's NOT a good sign for Bibi at all.
The removal of Netanyahu from office would be a very good thing for the entire world. The problem is the State of Israel is controlled by about 20 mega-rich Zionist families. To think that these power-brokers would replace Bibi with a truly honest man is as likely as the sun rising in the west tomorrow morning.
Read this honest and objective analysis of what I am talking about here: Netanyahu Scandals Reflect Corruption At The Heart Of Israeli Society
As I often do, I tested this column by writing a brief post on this subject on my Facebook page. I wasn't surprised when Christians came out of the woodwork in a vitriolic attack against me for what I said about Bibi. Many accused me of heresy and vowed to never read my Facebook page again.
Since my lengthy personal research and study into the Biblical teaching on Israel, I have come to learn this: the entire faith system of many professing Christians depends on their allegiance to the modern State of Israel. These Christian Zionists might recite a pledge of allegiance to the United States of America, but their true allegiance is to the State of Israel.
It is no hyperbole to say that for many professing Christians, the modern State of Israel is every bit as important as Jesus Christ Himself and their own personal salvation. In fact, many of these folks equate their allegiance to the State of Israel with their own personal salvation. And they are quick to condemn anyone to hell who does not share their allegiance to the State of Israel. I find this extremely perplexing. I truly wonder if this cultish infatuation with the modern faux Israel might be the great "falling away" and devilish deception of the last days. But I digress.
Faithful readers of this column and followers of my ministry know that for most of my adult life I subscribed to dispensational modern-Israel-is-the-fulfillment-of-Bible-prophecy theology. And while I would debate with people holding alternative opinions (as I hold now), I never felt that their differences of opinion on this subject somehow invalidated their Christian faith.
So, why is it that so many Christians are so dependent upon a commitment to the modern State of Israel to the point that it is part and parcel to the very core of their Christian faith? For some nineteen centuries there was no modern State of Israel, and believers were quite cemented and steadfast in the Christian faith. In fact, most Bible scholars who wrote previous to 1948 had an entirely different perspective on the subject. Try reading some of them, and see for yourself.
Today, however, anyone who challenges the scriptural validity of the modern State of Israel is cast off by many professing Christians in the meanest and most vitriolic terms. Why does the modern State of Israel hold such a strong grip on people's faith? It's as if their faith itself depends on the modern State of Israel, not Christ.
Christians seem oblivious to the fact that Netanyahu is not only a globalist, crook, and murderer, he is also a Talmudist. Not long ago, he promised that Talmudism would be official Israeli law. See the report: Netanyahu Promises Talmud Will Be Israeli Law
If you think the Koran is bad, try reading the Talmud. As a point of reference, the Pharisees that hated Jesus were devout disciples of the Mishnah, the oral traditions which later formed the Talmud. In other words, the Pharisees were Talmudists. And, as you probably know, Jesus strongly condemned them for their devotion to the Mishnah.
Consider, too: Tel Aviv is the international capital of homosexuality. That is no exaggeration. Also, the government of Israel pays for women to receive an abortion at any stage of the baby's development. Plus, as seen in Cook's article linked above, Israel is known globally as being a safe haven for all kinds of money laundering for international criminal gangs, especially from Russia. "A leaked U.S. embassy cable in 2009 warned that Israel was in danger of becoming a 'promised land' for organised crime.
"The Haaretz newspaper observed recently that this underground economy [from the money laundering by international criminal gangs] had become so big - with an annual turnover reaching as much $39 billion - Israel could find itself on the same list as Iran as 'one of the leading state financiers of global terrorism.'"
Furthermore, for all intents and purposes, many (if not most) Talmudists are practicing atheists. The Lord Jesus Christ (true Israel's Messiah) is scorned and hated as much in the modern State of Israel today as He was during the days when the Pharisees crucified Him. If you think there is religious liberty for Hebrew Christians in Israel today, you couldn't be more wrong.
The last time I was in Israel, I spoke at two Baptist churches. One was in Jerusalem, and the other was in Bethlehem. Take a guess at the composition of the Christians in those churches. They were 99% Palestinian.
In addition, Zionist bankers, casino owners, land developers, media magnates, entertainers, movie producers, etc., are among Christianity's biggest enemies. That is NOT a racist statement at all. That is a cold, hard fact.
You must understand that Zionism has nothing to do with race; it is a political philosophy. At its core, Zionism is communistic and atheistic. Accordingly, it is little wonder that Zionists are found among the liberal/progressive political parties in virtually every Western country. Zionists are found among all races and creeds. This is NOT a racial issue at all.
Folks, consider: I had believed, taught, and preached dispensational, Israel-First theology for over thirty years--why would I take an opposite view NOW, after all these years? Why would I risk my ministry, my livelihood, and my family's future? And with the hateful reaction to my position, that's exactly what I've done.
Continued attacks against me for my position on websites, radio talk shows, periodicals, and newspapers make columns such as this one obligatory. Like my positions or not, I have always tried to be true to my conscience and my beliefs. And if I go to the poor house over this issue, so be it. I will be faithful to the truth as I understand it, regardless.
First Comment by Ken Adachi:
It's simply amazing and remarkable to see this turnaround and admission by Chuck Baldwin that Christian Zionists are the most brainwashed dupes on the face of the earth. To accept the premise advanced by British Israel, you would have to abandon all historical and legitimate Biblical reference to the central role of Talmudic Pharisees in the false arrest, imprisonment, scourge, and Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, along with the distortions and false information advanced by the Cyrus Ingerson Scofield Bible, and accept as "Biblical", the Rapture, Millennial-ism story line crafted by John Nelson Darby, agent for Lord Milner of British Round Table which essentially embraced the Jewish world dominion scheme of the Rothschild family. The lies of British Israel were ably disassembled in an anonymous, but well written book, called The Union Jack and promoted by a TRUE devout Protestant Christian - with brains - named Helen Peters in the early 1970s.
Had Chuck and all the other dispensational Christians read the book and listened to the intelligence, penetrating logic, and wisdom presented in that book 47 years ago, they could have saved themselves a lot of wasted energy and money funding the very Talmudic psychopaths who are trying to destroy Christianity and bring in the One World nightmare ruled from Jerusalem. Let's hope this First Step by Chuck Baldwin helps to remove the blinders and allows the sunshine of Reason to pour in. It's long overdue. .
The Union Jack is posted in its entirety here:
I live in the Christian Zionist capitol of the world (Texas), and I've had direct conversations with several people since 2015 who surprised me by souring on it. I always recognized it as political exploitation of religion. It exploits vanity, and anything that exploits human vices for sake of attraction won't last, since that's what fads are made of.
But I think that's neither here nor there in the fortunes of Netanyahu. The Israelis knew all along the Christian Zionist fad wasn't going to last forever, and they've successfully transitioned to a new paradigm of American alliance with Trump's movement. That's not necessarily a bad thing if Trump remains at the head of that movement. Not so good if anything happens to Trump and certain members of his Administration take over.
If Bibi goes down, it will be due to his enemies in Israeli politics, little or nothing to do with anything going on in the United States. On the contrary, in light of Trump ditching the 'two state solution' preference of US/Israeli policy in the past, Netanyahu seems to getting close enough to victory for the hard liners everywhere to taste it, so I wouldn't count him out just yet. As LBJ once said, "you don't change horses in mid-stream".
My experience has shown me there are two types of Christian Zionists: paid infiltrators and tricked dupes.
I personally know some prominent Christian Zionists that get millions in donations or " business deals" from mysterious Israel-linked groups (deep state?). They told me- Bible translations that refer to Jesus as Rabbi instead of Master or Teacher as in Mark 9: 5 KJV -'And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here...' as opposed to NIV, ESV, ISV, ASV, D-R, 'Then Peter told Jesus, "Rabbi, it's good...' This was done to "Give a nod to Israel."
There are many other phrases in these Zionist Bibles that "Give a nod to Israel." Thus no wonder Christians are confused they heavily rely on the written word in the Bible.

To quote Baldwin: "If you think the Koran is bad, try reading the Talmud.".
In his ignorance I think he actually means the Hadith, which exactly like the Talmud means the "Traditions of the fathers" http://JAHTruth.net/hadith.
There are many Arabs who agree that the Hadiths are the main problem, and very many westerners who love the Koran, like I do, especially in the King of kings'
Bible http://JAHTruth.net/kofk-free/Bible, in which it is harmonised with the Bible.
James C said (February 17, 2017):
Once again you have sponsored Truth!! Chuck Baldwin is another Truth Teller. The Christian Zionists have been fooled, tricked and they love it. Their love affair with the Talmudic Zionists so called jews is a fairytale that they live in. It’s like watching some 13 year old boy who "falls in love with a girl" he saw in his English class. He has no clue about her, but if you tell him about her sordid reputation he will knock your block off and defend her honor. Stupid is what stupid does. Keep telling the Truth Chuck Baldwin, you’re a winner.
Allen M said (February 17, 2017):
Good afternoon, Henry-
Chuck is SPOT-ON. The average 'christian" has NO
knowledge or understanding- and therefore are those under delusion.....given from the Most High.
I spent my life in the " christian" church-along with its 5013 endless LIES ( bs ) and wretched blasphemy.
All tables are covered in vomit.
Thank you for your excellent treatise....Yashua saiid
" will I find any faithful when I return?"
The obvious answer is obvious.
I forgot to add that the Rockefeller museum in Jerusalem kinda says it all.
This is ALL Revelation 2:9.
Doug said (February 17, 2017):
I think that a Pastor should be a wise man, placing truth above all else. This is the only thing a moral leader can be and it is the way of Christ. So few examples of this exist today. I would thank Chuck Baldwin for doing this.
We do live in a society with a Judeo-Christian ethic. The Judeo-Christian phrase is a null statement, as are the morals of today's society. I am suspect of anyone that uses that phrase in reference to it being a good or great thing. Its an atheistic phrase.
RL said (February 17, 2017):
Bravo brave heart pastor God let you speak truth a real eye opener which means America your time is running out to putting Our Lord first
Michael said (February 16, 2017):
Yes its good to see that apostate ministers are slowly but surely beginning to see the light, I quote from the Gods own word in part revelation 18;4, 'get out of her my people , if you do not want to share with her in her sins and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues'
Tony B said (February 16, 2017):
Henry, it gives me great pleasure to learn that Chuck Baldwin, whom I have always disdained for his "Scofield-warped pretend Christianity" has seen the light, at least on ersatz Israel. Makes for a pleasant day.
Robert K said (February 16, 2017):
The invention of the term "Judeo-Christian", as used ubiquitously today, coincided with the final push to establish the State of Israel. In other words, it is a composite neologism that has been insinuated into the language for political purposes. During the preceding nineteen centuries Christians would have regarded it as being self-contradictory, and therefore patently intended (in modern parlance) to instil cognitive dissonance. Contemporary language is seeded with many such mind-mushing expressions. The late Dr. Geoffrey Dobbs identified the "technique of the essential adjective"--the association of a noun with a modifier that logically destroys the noun's meaning--as a key component of the subversive war on culture.
Magda said (February 16, 2017):
The Arabs have a moral and ethical basis for the holy land and it would have been in the interest for the Jews to peacefully co-exist with them as they did for many centuries under Islamic rule and before Zionist rule.
The immoral and ethical claims to these lands and against the Palestinians are explained by a South African sheikh who looks at the religious bases of these claims:
