In honor of Sukkot (the Festival of Tabernacles), the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF) published its annual list of Israel’s Top 50 “Christian” Allies — a “diverse list that spans many continents and denominations:
Former political leaders are also among the honorees, such as former Vice President Mike Pence, who was active in the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem, as well as Mike Pompeo, who defended Israel’s rights to Jerusalem, the Golan, Judea, and Samaria while serving as US Secretary of State. Both Pence and Pompeo were members of the Israel Allies Caucus during their tenures as US Congressmen. Leaders of Christian organizations and individuals who provide significant financial assistance to the State of Israel, especially for Holocaust survivors, the needy and immigrants, are featured as well. The Top Ten includes:
- Mike Pence
- Pastor John Hagee
- Pastor Larry Huch
- Stephen Harper
- Dick Saulsbury
- Nikki Haley
- Mike Pompeo
- Jimmy Morales
- Roger Staubach
- Dr. Pat Francis
Bible-believing Christians feel especially close to Sukkot which they refer to as the Feast of Tabernacles because of the verse in Zechariah 14:16 which foresees a time that individuals from all nations will come to Jerusalem to celebrate the holiday. In a typical year, when regular air travel is permitted, thousands of Christians from all over the world travel to Israel to celebrate Sukkot and hold festive parades and events in Jerusalem.
IAF Director Josh Reinstein said “Recognizing the heroic work of our Christian supporters is an important display of our hakarat hatov (gratitude) towards them. It is only due to Christian political support for Israel, which we refer to as faith-based diplomacy, that Israel enjoys such steady support from its allies around the world. It is Christians, not countries, that we can count on to always stand with Israel.”
The IAF is an umbrella organization that coordinates the work of 50 Israel Allies Caucuses around the world, including over 1,200 legislators, in order to mobilize political support for Israel based on shared Judeo-Christian values. This network includes the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus, the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus, and the European Union Parliamentary Israel Allies Caucus.
The IAF considers the moving of the US, Guatemalan, and Honduran embassies to Jerusalem as well as the anti-BDS legislation now in almost 35 US states, as direct results of the Christian politicians who have advocated for these issues as well as the Christian voters who have demonstrated that these issues will impact the direction of their vote.
Christian leaders who were selected to be a part of this exclusive list conveyed their deep support for the State of Israel which stems from their faith. Pastor Sandor Nemeth, founder and Senior Pastor of Faith Church in Hungary, explained, “For me, standing with the modern State of Israel and supporting the Jewish people in general comes naturally and should be reflected in the life of every Bible-reading, God-fearing Christian believer worldwide a self-evident reality. And what a blessing it is to see the fulfillment of the Zionist dream, the prosperity of Jerusalem, and the mutual benefit these relations bring to the nations globally!”
Similarly, Dumisani Washington, Founder and CEO of the Institute for Black Solidarity said, “As a Christian pastor, I stand with Israel because the Bible tells us to bless Abraham’s seed and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I stand with Israel because Israel is, in the words of Dr. King, ‘an oasis of brotherhood and democracy’ and ‘we must stand with all our might to protect its right to exist.’” Dumisani recently published the second volume of his book, Zionism & the Black Church: Why Standing with Israel Will be a Defining Issue for Christians of Color in the 21st Century.
When it comes to the Jews, judeo-Christians have a complete mental disconnect — the New Testament makes it abundantly clear that Christians are to have nothing to do with unbelievers, and that especially includes modern Jews who aren’t even real Israelites, by their own admission.
Judaism would not exist as a “religion” if they did not actively deny Christ — and as Christ-deniers who hate Christ “without a cause,” Jews have no claim whatsoever to be Israelites — “for they are not all Israel who are descendant of Israel” — even if they were Israelites, which they clearly are not.
Judeo-Christians believe that the faith of the Hebrews in the Old Testament is Judaism — but it is not, and nowhere in the Bible is it called “Judaism.”
Judaism as a religion arose as a new and separate belief after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD — and it is based on the Talmud, not the Torah or Old Testament — in fact, the Talmud is a long argument with the Torah to nullify it.
Genesis 12:3 is the foundational mantra for these blinded Christians — “I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse those who curse you. And through you I will bless all the nations.”
Literal-minded evangelical Christians astonishingly believe that this verse is somehow referring to the modern nation-State of Israel — not the Israelite people as a whole.
And if modern Jews are not real Israelites, Genesis 12:3 cannot possibly apply to them — and Christians are under no biblical imperative to “bless” these Jews who are impersonating the true Israelites.
Christians were warned 2,000 years ago that many of them would end up worshiping an AntiChrist — and evangelical Christianity is such a strong delusion, that it never occurs to its self-righteous followers that this warning could possibly apply to them.
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22)
Jews deny that Jesus is the Christ, and therefore, they are antichrist — evangelicals are taught by their Judas Goat leaders to worship the antichrist Jews; therefore evangelicals are worshiping an AntiChrist.
