What was the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Jerusalem Temple and its priests? What was the attitude of Jesus Christ toward the Temple? What does the Bible say?

Should American Christians follow pro-Israel preachers?

No.

The Gospels is clear in that Jesus Christ was anti-Israel and anti-Jerusalem Temple.

Jesus Christ not only demonized Jewish leaders and Judaism, but Jesus Christ also demonized Jerusalem as evil and a city that perpetually persecutes representatives of God.

Jerusalem was/is the capital of Israel, the Jewish nation.

True disciples follow Jesus Christ, and not some human ideology (like dispensationalism, a theology that was created in 1800s by some Jewish converts to Christianity who wanted to Judaize Christianity like the Judaizers of the Book of Galatians).

The Gospels clearly shows Jesus Christ attacking Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Temple.  Jesus Christ clearly attacks Jewish religious and political leaders and Judaism as a religion.  This is the Gospel Truth.

If so-called evangelical preacher want to hold onto human ideology (like Dispensationalism that was created less than 200 years ago) and reject the Gospel itself, then that preacher must NOT be seen as a servant of Jesus Christ.  Servants of Jesus Christ follow the Gospel Truth.

If the so-called evangelical leader refuses to reject human ideology (Dispensationalism that was created less than 200 years ago), then we understand that the Holy Spirit has rejected him.  Only the Holy Spirit can guide those whom He wants into understanding and truth.  Holy Spirit rejected Jewish religious leaders and Judaism in Jesus Christ’s time, and that was why Jerusalem Temple priests wanted to kill Jesus Christ.

It is only by the Grace of God that we see the Truth.

When so-called evangelical leaders refuse to reject Jerusalem as Jesus Christ did and St. Paul did, then these so-called evangelical leaders should be treated like King Saul, who was originally anointed by God, but then later rejected by God.

Yes, God rejects those whom God has previously anointed.  And King Saul is a good reason.

Thus, you must not follow any so-called evangelical leaders who refuse to reject Jerusalem and the Jewish nation of Israel.  The Holy Spirit has left them!

True servants of Christ follow Jesus Christ, including attacking Jerusalem and Jewish leaders.  If they refuse to do so, that is because they do not have the Holy Spirit in them.

This is how you know who the true servants of Jesus Christ is.

Gospel Truth stands in its own and all must submit, including so-called leaders!

Is attacking Jews and Judaism a Christian thing to do?

Merry Christmas, everyone!

What Christmas 2015 has shown everyone in the United States of America is that Jews are too powerful, and that is why Christmas has been taken out of America.

Jews argue that religion and state should be separated, but Jews push their Jewish agendas in politics, such as support of the Jewish nation of Israel, which is a part of the Jewish religion (not Christianity!).

Jews take Christianity out of every fabric of American society through their Jewish lobbies, rich Jewish businessmen, Jewish liberal reporters, and Jewish politicians and judges who abuse their official positions of power to de-Christianize America.

Christianity in America is in jeopardy because Jews are in positions of power in America.

If Jesus Christ came to America, liberal Jews and religious Jews would organize to kill Jesus Christ by using official channels of American government power, as Jews in ancient Israel did.  That’s the character of the Jewish people, as defined in the New Testament by Jesus Christ Himself.

To support Jews (or Judaism or the Jewish nation of Israel) is to betray the  Gospel of Jesus Christ, which clearly stands against Judaism and the Jewish nation of Israel.

But there are a lot of traitors in Christianity, including many so-called evangelical Christian leaders.  Remember, however, that Judas Iscariot was a chosen apostle of Jesus Christ – one of only twelve.  This clearly shows that even the must trusted leaders in Christianity can betray Jesus Christ.

All Christian leaders who refuse to give up their allegiance to the nation that killed Jesus Christ (Jewish nation), as recorded in the Christian Gospels, must be treated as traitors to Christ as Judas Iscariot.

Why do these people want to support the Jewish nation of Israel, when the Christian Gospels clearly show that Jesus Christ stood against the Jewish nation of Israel and even supported enemies of Israel (“Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s!”).

These people who call themselves evangelical are not true disciples of Jesus Christ, since true disciples follow Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ attacked Jews and Judaism in the Christian Gospels.  That’s what all evangelical Christians should do, if they are true disciples of Christ.

That’s how you tell a fake from real.

A religious Muslim, a religious Hindu, a religious Buddhist may all not steal or “sin”.  But they will not be loyal to Christ and the Christian Gospel.

An evangelical Christian who lives a “holy” life like a religious Muslim or a religious Hindu or the Pharisees of Jesus Christ’s day, but supports Israel is a traitor to Christ because they do not want to humble themselves to the Word of God.  The Word of God is clear in its directed attack of Judaism and Jews and the nation of Israel.

Loyalty to Christ is the determining factor in seeing that a Christian leader is truly a servant of Christ.

A lot of Christian leaders in the Bible “sin” or make mistakes, but what distinguishes them is that they are loyal to the Gospel Truth.  It is Gospel Truth to attack Judaism, Jews, and the Jewish nation of Israel.  Any Christian leader who refuse to follow Jesus Christ is not a true servant of Jesus Christ.

In other words, attacking Judaism and the Jewish nation of Israel is a pre-condition to affirm a true servant of Jesus Christ.

Not all who prophesy in Christ’s name will go to Heaven.  Those prophets who defend Jewish nation of Israel against the Gospel Truth will go to eternal damnation in Hell, even if they think that they never sinned in their life!

The Word of God is forever, and the Holy Bible clearly attacks Jews, Judaism, and the Jewish nation of Israel as being persecutors and killers of God’s representatives.  The Gospel is clear in emphasizing that it was the Jews who killed Christ.

Anyone who digresses from this crucial and central Gospel Truth is not a true disciple of Christ and will go to eternal damnation in Hell.

Labels of “Methodist”, “Baptist”, “Evangelical”, “Fundamentalist”, “Mainline Christian”, “Reformed Christian” will not save you in the life ever after if you support the Jewish nation of Israel, which brutally had Jesus Christ killed.

Read the book “Loyalty to the Kingdom of Christ” to understand what true discipleship in 2016 America is really about from a Bible perspective.  Here is a link to Amazon:

Do you think that so-called Christian Zionists will go to eternal damnation in Hell?

Let’s look at the Gospels of Jesus Christ in the New Testament and examine the attitude of Jesus Christ toward Israel.

Jesus Christ cursed Jewish cities and condemned Jerusalem for rejecting God’s messengers and Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ broke the law of the land (disturbance of peace; destruction of other people’s property; etc.) when He stormed the Jerusalem Temple and turned over the tables of businessmen.

Jesus Christ had no respect for the Jerusalem Temple and its authorities, and, in fact, it was the Jerusalem Temple authorities who condemned Jesus Christ to death, produced false witnesses to get Him charged criminally, pressed for warrants for His arrest, got Him convicted in the court of law, using lying witnesses, and had Him imprisoned and killed on the cross.

Jesus Christ died painfully.

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John spend considerable space condemning the Jews as a people for crucifying Jesus Christ.  Book of Acts in the New Testament thematically upholds the Gospel Truth that Jews killed Jesus Christ.

St. Paul clearly says that Judaizers (Christians sympathetic to Israel and Zionists) will go to eternal damnation in Hell in the Book of Galatians.

The New Testament is agreed on condemning Jews for killing Jesus Christ and for seeking justice from the Jews and Israel.

Thus, anyone who supports the Jewish nation of Israel has chosen to stand against the Truth of the Gospel that Jews killed Jesus Christ and that Jesus Christ cursed Jewish cities and condemned Jerusalem as a killer of God’s messengers and Jesus Christ Himself.

So, YES, in light of the Gospel Truth against Jews and the Jewish nation, all Christian Zionists should expect to find themselves in eternal damnation in Hell for being a traitor to Christianity and the Gospels of Jesus Christ.

Jews killed Christ, according to the Gospels, and Jesus Christ clearly stated that those who are not with Christ are against Christ.  Christ condemned Jewish cities, Jerusalem, Israel, and the Jewish people.

Either you stand with Jesus Christ and the Christian Gospels or ….

Do you think Christian Zionists are like the Pharisees in the Bible?

Absolutely!  The Pharisees were Zionists and today’s descendants of the Pharisees, who are leaders of Rabbinic Judaism around the world, are Zionists.  How many Rabbinic Jews have you met who are not Zionists?  The Pharisees hated Jesus Christ because Jesus Christ was anti-Zionists and attacked Jewish cities and the Jerusalem Temple.  The Pharisees believed that Israel was the Chosen Nation of God and that was the most important thing to emphasize.  They were willing to kill anyone who attacked their Zion theology.  Do you see the correlation between the Pharisees and today’s American Christian Zionists?  They are the same kind of people who emphasize the same kind of things.  If Jesus Christ came to America today and say the same things He said in the New Testament (obviously, Christ wants us to preach the Gospels, literally!), then Jesus Christ would be killed by these so-called Christian Zionists who want to protect Jewish Israel because it is “Chosen Nation”.  Jesus Christ (or His representatives on earth, like St. Stephen) would be killed by these so-called Christian Zionists on the very same principles.  This is why Christian Zionism is absolutely wrong from the Bible perspective.  Jesus Christ never told anyone to support the Jewish state of Israel, anywhere in the Gospels, because Jesus Christ wanted His disciples to oppose Zionism, Jerusalem, and Jewish Israel.  Now, these Christian Zionists are directly opposed to the Gospels and the teachings of Jesus Christ.  Of course, they are like the Pharisees of the Gospels who kill Jesus Christ and disciples of Jesus Christ in order to protect the Jewish nation of Israel.  If you are a Christian Zionist, you must repent and turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ and His teaching in the Gospels, because if you are not for Him, you are against Him.  You are siding with Christ’s enemies, the very people who killed Jesus Christ in order to protect Zionist principles and the Jewish nation of Israel.

Are Christians allowed to support the Jewish state of Israel?

No.  Jesus Christ always opposed Jewish cities and Jerusalem in the Gospels.  Jesus Christ never told His disciples to support Israel as a political or religious entity.  In fact, early Christians rejected Israel because Judaism rejected Jesus Christ.  The complete split between Judaism and Christianity came early, because the leaders of Judaism in all denominations (Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, Temple priests) all rejected Jesus Christ as the Messiah.  Furthermore, they all worked to have Jesus Christ killed.  That is why Jesus Christ did not support Jewish Jerusalem or Jewish Israel.  Jesus Christ does condemn Jewish cities and Jerusalem and that is clear in the Gospels.  So, Christians are not allowed to support the Jewish state of Israel, if they want to follow Jesus Christ as His disciples and keep to the spirit and the letter of the Christian Gospels.

Can Jews be saved without accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior?

Some Christians think that there is a different way that Jews will be saved – a way that is different from other people. Under this impression, some Christians think of Jews and Israel as special and some even call themselves “Christian Zionists”.  But the Bible is clear.  Everyone, whether Jew or Gentile, are saved by Christ alone. Everyone has to, out of their own free will, accept Jesus Christ as their Savior God and believe that it was the death of Jesus Christ on the cross that redeems them.  Those who do not believe this will not be saved. in other words, anyone who does not believe that Jesus Christ is God and Savior, who died and rose from the death on the cross in order to save humans, will be going to eternal damnation in Hell. Thus, all Jews (and Gentiles!) who do not accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior God will be spending eternity in everlasting torment, torture, suffering, and unquenchable burning fire.  Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.  All other religions – Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Janism, etc. – lead to eternal damnation. In John 14:6, Jesus Christ declares:  ““I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” Only Jesus Saves.  Another Christian ministry also has good response to this question; follow this link: http://www.gotquestions.org/Jews-saved.html.  (Note: One point of disagreement with Got Question Ministry is that historically Catholic and Protestant Christians have argued that God rejected Jews as His Chosen People when Jews, according to the Gospels, killed God’s Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ and rejected Him. These Christians point to 70 AD, when Israel was completely destroyed by Roman democracy as proof.  Jews were dispersed for 2,000 years until the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948.)

What was the Jerusalem Temple’s official position toward Jesus Christ during His ministry?

Some Christians call themselves “Christian Zionists”, but is this a good thing in light of the Gospels in the New Testament? Many so-called Christian Zionists think that Jesus Christ has/had a good relationship with the Jerusalem Temple and its priests.  Let’s look at the Bible to see what the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Jerusalem Temple was like, while Jesus Christ walked on earth. John 11 shows the official position that the Jerusalem Temple priests took toward Jesus Christ. What was that?  We see the Jerusalem High Priest expounding the official position of the Jerusalem Temple toward Jesus Christ in John 11:49-50:  “But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, ‘You know nothing at all, nor do you take into account that it is expedient for you that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation not perish.'” Jerusalem Temple priests saw Jesus Christ as a national security threat and wanted Jesus Christ to die, rather than endanger the nation of Israel.  It was the exclusive claim of Jesus Christ to be the Divine Messiah that not only offended the Jerusalem Temple priests, who rejected this, but also made the Jerusalem Temple priests to fear that the Roman Empire would retaliate against Israel because of Jesus Christ. That is one reason why the Jerusalem Temple wanted Jesus Christ dead.  And the Passion Narratives of the Gospels show that the Jerusalem Temple ultimately succeeded in their goal.
