“The War of Ideas” = “The War of Theology or Eschatology”
Everyone looking at the conflict in the Middle East realizes that while engaging militarily at times is necessary, the ultimate solution will have to come from another area. Therefore, many see the various conflicting religious theology or eschatology (study of prophecy) fueling these areas as being solved ultimately through a “war of ideas.” What they mean by this, is really a “war of theology/eschatology” that needs to change the hearts and minds within these areas before lasting peace can emerge.
The Problem Summarized
Unfortunately, these three Futurist eschatological systems of Islam, Israeli or Talmudic Zionism and Evangelical Zionism all share common errors that perpetuate conflict in the Middle East and the U.S. such as:
1). God allegedly has predicted that our generation will live to see the end time “signs” and that they are being fulfilled right before our eyes today such – natural disasters, wars, and an imminent arrival of an evil ruler or “Antichrist” “man of lawlessness” etc. As we will see, many read their Quran, Talmud/Torah and NT through the lens of current events and news headlines.
2). God allegedly will cause its religious system to overcome others or inherit certain local “holy land” areas and ultimately the earth–while the other groups are exterminated or end up serving their god or even them in some way.
3). There is an alleged future but imminent “end time” “great war” (ex. the battle of Gog and Magog or Armageddon) for us to experience in which their religion will win over the other wicked ones.
4). God allegedly will send Jesus or Messiah to save Israel (or condemn Israel from the Islamic view), bringing global peace, defeat the antichrist and infidels – and thus usher in some kind of paradise or kingdom on earth.
But what if it can be proven that these Biblical “end time” “signs” and “holy war” scenarios have already been fulfilled and that the OT and NT predicted a “new” and spiritual Kingdom to be established within the hearts of His people and not a physical earthly paradise on earth?
What if it can be proven according to Allah’s “revelations” that Muhammad was a false prophet, and thus the Quran is not a revelation from God? What if it can be proven from their own Islamic sources that the Old and New Testaments could not be corrupted and that they do contradict the Quran? Where does this leave and lead the Muslim when he or she is commanded to go to the “people of the book” (Christians) to test and judge if the Quran is accurate and or consistent with the Bible?
And for the Zionist, what if all of the land promises were actually fulfilled in the OT and therefore the modern state of Israel is a non-starter? What if the OT prophetic material concerning Israel being saved or gathered “in the land” was also typological of pointing to a greater and spiritual fulfillment in the prophesied coming New Covenant that would be realized “in Christ”?
Therefore, does the God of the Bible really support or recognize modern day Israel as “gods people”? Is modern day Israel and the events of 1948 or 1967 a “super sign” of fulfilled Bible prophecy – or was it simply formed and funded by the Rothchild dynasty and Khazarian mafia which seeks to globally enslave the Gentile through monetary means using modern Israel as one of many places to conduct some of its affairs?
How many passages in the OT and NT have they and Evangelical Zionists claimed were fulfilled in 1948 or 1967 that are grossly taken out of context in order to back and support their false and manipulative religious/political systems?
Are Christians in the U.S. supposed to support modern day Israel in their theft and violence because God will allegedly “bless” us if we do? Are some Evangelical Zionists such as C.I. Scofield and John Hagee correct to condemn Christians as being in “sin” if we don’t support the modern Israeli agenda?
Is it just possible that modern day Israel is simply another unbelieving nation among many others that needs the gospel and to be held accountable to their land agreements with the Palestinians?
What if it can be proven from Jewish sources prior to Jesus and after AD 70 that Messiah would be divine and had to have arrived even upon the clouds of heaven before the second Temple fell in AD 70? What if I can show them that their own sources of authority teach a spiritual resurrection and spiritual fulfillment of the Temple promises were to be fulfilled by AD 70?
And what if I can prove to the Evangelical Zionist that both the OT and NT teach a Messianic Kingdom and Temple that would be fulfilled spiritually and “within” the believer and not a physical or earthly Kingdom or Temple that will be set-up in modern Jerusalem? And what if I can prove these to be true not only from the Scriptures, but from the teachings of the orthodox Christian Church?
What if I can prove to the Evangelical Zionist that the “rapture” of 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 is not a promise made to them whereby they are going to disappear from planet earth just before things get really bad here on earth? If I can prove this passage was fulfilled by AD 70 and the Christian Church will never be raptured off the planet, would this effect the way the Church lives and should be involved in politics and develop long-term strategies to take back our country and fight against wicked Globalism? If I can do this, perhaps we can awaken the Evangelical sleeping giant from the mentality, “You don’t polish brass on a sinking ship.”
What are we to make of the Charismatic Evangelical Zionist movement that bring false prophecies in the name of God concerning the Second Coming and the activities of our politicians and even our Presidents? Did the gift of prophet and prophecy in the OT and NT contain error or was the prophet to be 100% accurate? Did the office of prophet and the miraculous gift of prophecy, tongues and knowledge stop or cease in AD 70? If so, what are we to make of all the false, failed and often times conflicting “prophecies” arising from the Charismatic Zionist churches?
The Solution Summarized
These are all very important questions when analyzing these three “end time” religious systems and trying to find an effective “war of ideas” that can bring as much peace as is possible among them. Therefore, let me answer some of these questions and give the reader my propositions and solution from the outset and the rest of this volume is designed to prove my propositions:
1). Imminent Time of Fulfillment: Jesus predicted that His Second Coming, the end (of the Old Covenant) age, and all of the signs described in Matthew 24-25 would be fulfilled “near” within His contemporary “this generation” and He kept that promise (Matthew 24:34, see also Matthew 10:22-23 and Matthew 16:27-28). Therefore, the NT inspired authors who were “reminded” and “led into truth concerning things to come” like their Master also taught (as their generation was ending) that Christ’s Second Coming was “at hand,” “near,” “soon,” and was “about to be” fulfilled “in a very little while and will not delay” (ex. Rms. 13:11-12; Jms. 5:7-9; 1 Pet. 4:5-7; Heb. 10:37; Rev. 1:1—22:7, 10, 20).
Jesus and the NT authors are consistent with OT prophets who use common apocalyptic language filled with metaphors and symbolism. When God comes on the clouds in the OT and there is de-creation language, He is coming through an invading army and causing the country being judged to have their civil and religious world come to an end. In the Olivet Discourse Jesus is prophesying that the age or world (heaven and earth) of the Old Covenant system would end in His generation. Jesus nor any NT author are predicting the end of world history was “near” or “soon” to take place.
2). Sacred Space: While under the Old Covenant there was a literal “in the land” militaristic kingdom or theology, but it served as prophetic types and shadows of Jesus’ spiritual Kingdom or being “in Christ” under the New Covenant which now advances through the sword of the Spirit or the everlasting gospel. However, this does not lead to Pacifism which I will discuss in a later chapter.
The events of 1948 have nothing to do with the fulfillment of Bible prophecy – contrary to the empty claims of Zionism in its various forms. Modern day Judaism nor Islam have any religious right to “holy land” in the Middle East or the planet today.
The Bible does not support a Messianic Kingdom or paradise on earth. Jesus taught that when He was revealed from heaven like the sun shining from the east to west, that His Kingdom would not be seen with one’s eyes, but rather be realized “within the heart of a person” (Lk. 17:20-37). Post AD 70 and in the New Covenant age, God’s people have become His sacred space.
It is more than ironic that people refer to Islam, Talmudic Zionism, and Evangelical Zionism as the “three Abrahamic faiths.” This is odd since Hebrews makes it abundantly clear that Abraham’s faith was not in an earthly country or city but a spiritual or heavenly one, “For we have not here an abiding city [on earth a city named Jerusalem], but we are seeking the one [city / New Jerusalem] about to [Greek mello] come” (Heb. 11:10-16; 13:14). This is consistent with the “Jerusalem from above” being the New Covenant (Gals. 4:26) which Revelation teaches is the New Jerusalem in the process of coming down and did “shortly” in AD 70 when the earthly Jerusalem/Babylon was destroyed (Rev. 1:1–3:12NIV–22:7, 10, 20).
3). The End of the Age War: The battle of “Gog and Magog,” or “Armageddon” was prophesied to be fulfilled in Israel’s “last days” during a 3 ½ years period (Dan. 12:7) and it truly was fulfilled “shortly” or “soon” during the Roman Jewish War of AD 67 – AD 70. This resulted in the Temple being at the “end” of the Old Covenant age “when the power of the holy people would be [was] completely destroyed” (Lk. 21:20-32; Rev. 11; Dan. 12:4-7).
4). The Office of Prophet & Prophecy: I will prove from the OT and NT that the office of prophet and the miraculous gift of prophecy “stopped” or “ceased” when the Temple was destroyed in AD 70 at the “soon” Second Coming of Christ (Dan. 9:24-27; 1 Cor. 13:8-12/Rev. 22:4-7, 10, 20). Therefore, the “prophet” of Muhammad and Islam itself is a non-starter as is the Charismatic Evangelical movement with its history of failed, false and contradictory so-called “prophetic utterances.”
Outline and Approach to the Solution
My approach is twofold: First, develop what each of these three systems teach concerning 1). sacred space, 2). an imminent Second Coming of Jesus or Messiah to 3). usher in an end time holy war. Secondly, I will demonstrate how these overlapping prophetic concepts have either been proven to be false and failed predictions or is in conflict with what the Bible actually teaches in these three areas.
I should also note that since Islam claims Jesus never claimed to be God and rejects the Deity of Christ and modern Jews claim a divine Messiah is nowhere taught in the Torah or in their rabbinic traditions, I will deal with this subject in much detail as well. It is not sufficient to tear down a false religion, one must do so while pointing the person to the truth and when possible do it even through their own sources of authority.
I will now begin to make my case proving all of my propositions above are in fact true and therefore make a truly Biblical and commonsense case which will achieve more peace in the Middle East than is present today.
I dedicate this book to President Trump who did not listen to many who wanted to lure us into the “endless wars” in the Middle East. In fact not only did he not listen to the enticements of Islam, Israel and Evangelicals to engage in war in the Middle East, but he made peace deals. My work is simply a theological treatise which can be used for Christian politicians and Presidents to take peace in the Middle East to the next level and provide a platform for “Christian Patriots” to take back this great country.
