Christians United for Israel founder Pastor John Hagee spoke on CBN News' Faith Nation program about why he supports President Donald Trump's Jerusalem decision and why Christians need to know about Israel's global importance. Watch below on the site
He discussed why Israel is important to Christians, as well as what's behind the Trump administration's support of the Holy Land. Hagee is the founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel.
"What President Trump is doing is one of the most courageous political things that's been done in Washington in a long time," Hagee, who is also the senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, told CBN News.
"Many presidents have promised to move the embassy and declare Jerusalem as the eternal capital, but they have promised without performing," he continued.
"President Trump, when I spoke to him in the White House about this several weeks ago, he said this very emphatically. He said, 'Other presidents have failed you, but I will not disappoint the Christian community in this issue. I will stand with Israel, and we will at some point in time, move the embassy,'" said Hagee.
He also talked with the president about the significance of moving the embassy in this "Jubilee Year."
"...I told him that God measures everything in modules of 50 years," Hagee explained to CBN News. "And I said this is a principle that's carried out in Leviticus, the 25th chapter."
"I said, 'If you look at 1917, it was a Jubilee Year, and the Balfour Amendment came, and then in 50 years, it was 1967, and Jerusalem was reconnected to Israel,'" he continued.
"'And you add 50 to 1967, and you're in 2017.' I said, 'This is the year to move the embassy and make that declaration because it is a biblical timing of absolute precision,'" Hagee said. "Thank God, he's going to do exactly that."
And Hagee also emphasized the significance of the Jewish state to God and why Christians need to acknowledge its global importance.
"...I believe at this point in time, Israel is God's stopwatch for everything that happens to every nation, including America, from now until the Rapture of the Church and beyond," he said.
"Christians should care about Israel because the entirety of the Bible beginning at Genesis all the way to the end is God's position paper on the Jewish people," Hagee explained.
"God found a man by the name of Abraham and He made a covenant with him," Hagee continued. "Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, recorded in the book of Genesis, that He was going to give them a strip of real estate in the Middle East, and that piece of real estate would be theirs forever."
"Forever means today, tomorrow and forever," he said. "It has nothing to do with what the Palestinians think, what the Russians think, what the UK has the opinion of; it belongs to the Jewish people."
"And Israel is the gateway to God's blessing in the Bible," Hagee continued. "Genesis 12: 'I will bless those who bless you.'"
"World history can be summed up in one sentence. The nations that blessed Israel were blessed of God, and the nations that cursed Israel were cursed of God," he said.
The fake bible scholars (small B for them) are sure that the two Biblical words for "sheep," כבש KeBHeS and כשב KeSeBH was a human error in a human, flawed book.
In the "SHEEP" entry of E-Word, כבש KeBHeS is established to evoke the traits of sheepishness. כבש KaBHaSH is to subdue, to put the KIBOSH on something. This is the "sheep" word Torah uses when a sin offering is order for our flaw of excessive passivity. Sometimes we just go with the flow and allow a bad thing to happen. Example: allowing our child to hang with friends who party and smoke too much.
The other Biblical "sheep" word, כשב KeSeBH, sounds like כםף KeSeF (money). Here, it's about sheep as a financial commodity. Similarly, the words for "cattle" and "purchase" share a ק-נ Koof-Noon root. When Jacob is making a fortune in the "stock" market with start-up breeding methods, only the KeSeBH "sheep" word is used.
Hebrew Bible words are carefully tailored to specific context. As if they were created for them. Unlike the Greek Gospels, any accidental variants in the Hebrew Bible are very rare. ... The various Sacred Names are specific to the employed modality (justice or mercy). יעקב Jacob is used for the man, while ישראל Israel is used to mean the national patriarch. Sorry, fake, secular Hebrew "scholars" and G-d-hating bible critics: כשב /כבש KeSeBH/KeBHeS is NOT a scribal error or accidental variant. And Torah is more skillfully written than anything by mere humans.
