Question, what’s a nativity scene without the 3 Wise Men? Answer, the truth. In the Bible, the wise men from the east never went to the manger, by the time they got there Jesus was a “young child” and living in a house with his mother.

There are so many things about the birth of Jesus and the holiday of Christmas that Christians all know to be true, except for the fact that they are not true. Christmas in 2018, the satanic counterfeit of Santa Claus notwithstanding, bears little resemblance to events surrounding the birth of Jesus in the Bible, which occurred roughly around  the year 4 BC. This article will endeavour to set the record straight.

“And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.” Luke 2:15-17 (KJV)

I believe that the truth about the birth of Jesus in the manger is much more interesting than the fables and half-truths being promoted by most Christian and Catholic churches today. So without any further ado, let’s get right into it.

Here Are 7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About The Birth Of Jesus

  1. JESUS AND JOHN THE BAPTIST WERE COUSINS: Mary and Elisabeth were cousins to each other, and they became pregnant about 6 months apart from each other. Mary from the Holy Ghost, and Elisabeth from her husband Zacharias. Mary would give birth to Jesus, and Elisabeth would give birth to John the Baptist. This would make Jesus and John first cousins once removed. “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:34-37 (KJV)
  2. JESUS WAS ONLY ONE OF MANY CHILDREN MARY WOULD HAVE: It is a fact that Mary, the young Jewish girl, was impregnated by God himself, and gave birth to baby Jesus while still being a virgin. The Bible declares this to be true in both Testaments. But what a lot of people, especially Catholics, gloss right over is that the Bible does not refer to Jesus as Mary’s “only child”, but rather as her “firstborn” child. To call someone a “firstborn” child is proof positive that other children from the same mother followed. “Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.” Matthew 1:24,25 (KJV). The gospel of Mark records that Mary would go on to give birth to at least 6 other children with Joseph, 4 of which are named in Mark 6. “Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.” Mark 6:3 (KJV). And Old Testament prophecy in Psalm 69 also records that Jesus had brothers and sisters. “I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children. For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.” Psalm 69:8,9 (KJV). Mary did not remain a virgin while she lived on Earth, and she most certainly is not the “perpetual virgin” found in Roman Catholic mythology. The Bible clearly calls Jesus and John cousins and it clearly shows us that Jesus also had brothers and sisters. It uses a different word for cousin as it does for siblings. Finally, the apostle Paul mentions he spent some time with James, one of the brothers of Jesus Mark mentions. “But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.” Galatians 1:9 (KJV)
  3. THE WISE MEN FROM THE EAST DIDN’T USE ASTROLOGY: Ask any Christian about how the wise men from the East knew how to find Jesus, and they will quickly tell you they were following Old Testament prophecy. Then ask them to show you exactly which prophecy that was, and you will likely not get an answer, quickly or otherwise. But the Star that guided the wise men is found in the book of Numbers. “He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.” Numbers 24:16,17 (KJV). They knew within a two year period when the child would be born because Daniel tells you when that would happen. “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.” Daniel 9:25 (KJV). The type of “star” that guided them is found in Revelation 1. “The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.” Revelation 1:20 (KJV). The star led them right over to the house where the young child Jesus was living. “When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.” Matthew 2:10 (KJV). The wise men didn’t need to use any astrology charts of any kind, as they were led personally there by the angels of God Himself.
  4. THE WISE MEN NEVER MADE IT TO THE MANGER: Question, what’s a nativity scene without the 3 Wise Men? Answer, the truth. In the Bible, the wise men from the east never went to the manger, by the time they got there Jesus was a “young child” and living in a house with his mother. “When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:9,11 (KJV). In order for Jesus to meet the wise men as a “young child” he would probably have been at least two to three years old. Also, the wise men come to a house, not to a barn, stable or manger. You will further note that the wise men, who were sent to Jesus by God, never once paid the least bit of homage to Jesus’ mother, Mary. I find it interesting that the Catholic Church puts Mary into such a high and lofty position, yet we never see Mary treated this way in the Bible.
  5. THE GIFTS GIVEN TO JESUS REPRESENT HIS THREE OFFICES: Jesus was born to live as a prophet and die on the cross as a sacrifice. He returned to Heaven where He has been administering the office of High Priest intercessor for the Church Age, and He is coming again at the Second Coming as King of Kings. The wise men gave Jesus three gifts of myrrh, frankincense and gold. The ‘bitter perfume‘ of myrrh represented the death He would suffer as a prophet. It is given to Him at His birth, given to Him on the cross, and His body is wrapped in linen clothes containing “myrrh and aloes”. The frankincense was a crucial part of Temple worship dating back to the Law of Moses, and is connected to the functions of the High Priest. The Song of Solomon, prophesying about Jesus, shows us again how myrrh and frankincense are connected to His ministry. “Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant?” Song of Solomon 3:6 (KJV). The third gift, gold, is connected to the kingship of Jesus. “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” Revelation 3:18 (KJV).
  6. THERE WAS A GLOBAL TAX AT HIS BIRTH AND WILL BE AGAIN AT HIS RETURN: The not inspired version NIV calls it a census, the deadly RSV and the ASV call it an enrollment, and the sneaky and deceptive NKJV calls it a registration. But the Holy Spirit-inspired King James Bible calls it exactly for what it was – a tax. “And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.” Luke 2:1-5 (KJV). Why is this important? Because a tax is not the same as a census or any of the others, it is a specific action where the government forces its citizens to give them money. When you remove this reference, you also wash away the very important prophetic links that are attached to it. Rome is a type of the government of Antichrist, anything coming out of Rome in the Bible is always evil, and this type picture of Antichrist’s government is exacting a global tax just prior to the birth of baby Jesus. The book of Daniel tells us that one of the things that precedes the Second Coming is a world ruler who institutes a global tax. “Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.” Daniel 11:20,21 (KJV). And how will that global tax be enforced? By forcing people to take the Mark of the Beast, that’s how. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJV). So when Luke tells us about a global tax, he is giving us prophecy from both Testaments about Jesus’ first and second comings. It’s also an excellent example of rightly dividing.
  7. JESUS WASN’T BORN ON THE 25TH OR IN DECEMBER: There is nothing in the Bible to lead us to believe that Jesus was born on any day in December, so why do we celebrate it on that day? Because the celebration of Christmas, or Christ’s Mass, is a Roman Catholic invention. The Catholic Church chose December 25th because it was the pagan celebration of Saturnalia. They simple added magic “christian” pixie dust to it and WHAMMO! you have Christmas. Now we can debate if you like over whether or not Christmas is a pagan holiday or not, but there is no debate that Christmas, Christ’s Mass, is a Roman Catholic holiday. In the waning days of the evil Roman empire, a type of the government of Antichrist, they realized that Roman rule had an expiration date attached to it. So in order to preserve their legacy, pagan Rome took over biblical Christianity and became papal Rome. This rule by papacy would last from approximately 350 AD to 1500 AD, a period of time we rightly refer to as the Dark Ages. So when was Jesus born? The Bible doesn’t say outright, but by comparing scripture with scripture, I would place my bet on the birth of Jesus taking place on the Feast of Tabernacles which happens on or around the 23rd of September.

As you can see, the real meaning of “christmas” has nothing to do with being nice to each other, giving each other gifts, or any other such nonsense. The only people observing holidays like this in the first century were the pagans, none of the people who knew Jesus personally ever celebrated the day of His birth. There was simply no reason to do so. Sadly, in our day, Christmas is not about the birth of Jesus, but rather about a “spirit of Christmas” which is a humanistic, man-centered event that leaves the actual Jesus outside the door and knocking to be let in.

There’s A Reason Why Isaiah Is The Most Quoted Old Testament Prophet And Why His Writings Bolster The Foundation Of Paul’s New Testament Gospel

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

The writings of the prophet Isaiah make up a large part of New Testament Church Age scripture because Isaiah is the most ‘whole Bible’ prophet there is.

The prophet Isaiah writes 66 chapters in the book that bears his name, and in an amazing coincidence, there are 66 books in your King James Bible. In a second amazing coincidence, chapter 39 talks about the Temple, and everything from chapter 40 through 66 is about the coming Messiah at His First Advent. Which is fascinating because there are 39 chapters in the Old Testament, and 27 in the New, the ‘break’ is right on the money. You can’t beat the Book.

“I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” Isaiah 45:23 (KJB)

“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Romans 14:11 (KJB)

So let’s jump right into it, and see some of the amazing places that the prophet Isaiah connected himself to the New Testament, hundreds of years before any New Testament scripture would be written. For a deeper study, we highly recommend you get our Isaiah Commentary Bundle, which is packed full of amazing information on the end times ministry of the prophet Isaiah.

A Sampling of the Prophet Isaiah and the Apostle Paul

  • “He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.” Isaiah 25:8 (KJB)
  • “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:54 (KJB)

  • “I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name. I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;” Isaiah 65:1,2 (KJB)
  • “But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me. But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.” Romans 10:20,21 (KJB)

  • “For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.” Isaiah 10:22,23 (KJB)
  • “Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.” Romans 9:27,28 (KJB)

  • “Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.” Isaiah 29:14 (KJB)
  • “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” 1 Corinthians 1:19 (KJB)

  • “So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.” Isaiah 52:15 (KJB)
  • “But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.” Romans 15:21 (KJB)

  • “Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;” Isaiah 49:8 (KJB)
  • “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” 2 Corinthians 6:2 (KJB)

  • “Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him? With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?” Isaiah 40:13,14 (KJB)
  • “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:16 (KJB)

All told, there are a minimum of 52 direct quotations from the prophet Isaiah in the New Testament, and many more non-cited references as well, like this one.

  • “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.” Isaiah 59:7,8 (KJB)
  • “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes.” Romans 3:14-18 (KJB)

In addition to Isaiah being quoted by our apostle Paul, he is quoted by the Lord because Isaiah foretold of Him. What book was the first Gentile convert in the Church Age reading? Isaiah 53. Phillip preached to him Jesus from that chapter, and the Ethiopian eunuch got saved and eternally secure every bit as much on that as you did on Ephesians 2:8,9 and 1 Corinthians 15:3,4. How’s that for rightly dividing? Maybe rightly dividing goes deeper than you think it does, (and it does).

A Sampling of the Prophet Isaiah and the Lord Jesus of Nazareth

  • “Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” Isaiah 9:1,2 (KJB)
  • “The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.” Matthew 4:15,16 (KJB)

  • “Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.” Isaiah 42:1-4 (KJB)
  • “Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.” Matthew 12:18-21 (KJB)

  • “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” Isaiah 53:4 (KJB)
  • “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” Matthew 8:17 (KJB)

Now you see the ‘secret’ of the prophet Isaiah. Not only does he foretell about the day of the LORD and what happens to the Jews in the last days, he also shows us, in mystery form, the Church Age with the gospel that would go to the Gentiles. Isaiah gives us the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God. He is the most ‘whole Bible’ prophet there is, which is why what he wrote is indispensable to Paul in over 27 places. So you see that the New Testament is not something brand-new, it is the fulfillment of what was prophesied in the Old Testament that would take place. Below is a list of references with Isaiah on the left, and its New Testament match meet on the right. If you found more than we have listed here, please comment below and we’ll be happy to add it!

The Real Mary In The Bible Was A Sinner Who Trusted In The Salvation Of The Lord And Was Used In A Mighty Way As A Role Model Of Christian Submission

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

The biblical Mary is a model of humility and submission to God, she is not sinless, not divine, and does not hear or answer any prayers

The virgin called Mary in the Bible was a lot of things, and we will talk about that, but first let’s discuss what she was not, according to scripture. She was not sinless, she was not ‘assumed into Heaven’ instead of dying, she was not the ‘gatekeeper to Jesus’, she did not remain a virgin, she wasn’t blessed above women, and no one who knew her ever asked her to answer their prayers. In short, she is very much unlike the ‘perpetual virgin’ Mary that is a creation from whole cloth by the Roman Catholic Church.

“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.” Luke 1:30 (KJB)

Either you believe the Bible or your don’t, that’s what it comes down to. Mary was a wonderful, godly woman who was used in a tremendous way to show what true, humble submission to the Lord is all about. But Mary was 100% human, just like me and you, she needed a Saviour to pay for her sins, just like me and you, this is what the evidence of scripture shows us. Much myth and legend has grown up around her, and she is worshipped by the Roman Catholic Church who has made her divine. It is my intent with this article to show you Mary’s beautiful humanity, the real Mary who indeed is blessed among women.

  • MARY NEEDED A SAVIOUR: “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Luke 1:46,47 (KJB). Well people do not need a doctor, and sinless people do not need a Saviour. Sick people need doctors and sinners need a Saviour. Mary rightly says that God is her Saviour, she understands her true condition before the Lord. The Catholic response to this is to say that “Mary was just being humble when she said that”, but if that’s true, then she lied about needing a Saviour, and lying is a sin. So either way, Mary was a sinner who needed a Saviour.
  • MARY HAD 6 OTHER CHILDREN: Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.” Mark 6:3 (KJB). Not only did Mary have other children, the Bible names Jesus’ 4 brothers and tells us about his two sisters. Matthew 13:53-58 shows this to be true as well.
  • JESUS ALWAYS CALLED HER ‘WOMAN’: “Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.” John 2:4 (KJB). Jesus never called Mary His mother, though scripture clearly shows us she was. But anticipating the cult that would rise up around her, it looks like Jesus very carefully addressed her when he spoke to her. As He lay dying on the cross, He continued to refer to her as ‘woman’ even when he was instructing John to take her into him home to live out her days with him. This completely cuts off the idea that Jesus was somehow always a ‘mama’s boy’ and that Mary would lead people to Him as she is portrayed now. 
  • MARY HELD NO SPECIAL PLACE IN THE CHURCH: These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.” Acts 1:14 (KJB). The last mention of Mary in the Bible is in Acts, where we see her seated beside all the others as they all prayed together. You will note she holds no special place other than to be a member of this first church, Peter is leading the group and preaching. Mary is not consulted, no one asks her for any special requests or favors, she is on an equal footing with everyone else. She lived the rest of her life out in the church, at some point she died, and went where all saved people go, to Heaven. The Roman Catholic ‘assumption of Mary’ is a complete fabrication not found on any page of any Bible.

You see, Mary was just like you and me, completely human and completely dependent on the God she served for every good thing in her life. She is a model of humility, and as such, would be appalled if she could come back and see the lies said about her. There is only one Person born sinless, and that’s Jesus, and He shares his glory with no one. The Roman Catholic Church has created an alternate Mary they call the ‘perpetual virgin’, and 100% of what they say about her cannot be proven by scripture. There are no records of any miracles performed by her, or any miracles performed that she had a hand in.

There was a time when Mary and Jesus siblings came to visit Him, and there were so many people that they could not gain access. So it was told to Jesus that Mary and His siblings were outside and wanted to see Him. How did Jesus respond to that request? Take a look for yourself:

Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.” Luke 8:19-21 (KJB)

Jesus said that anyone who heard to word of God, and did what it said to do, was just as close to Him as His own mother and His own siblings. This is the exact opposite of how Mary is portrayed by the Roman Catholic Church who has turned her into the ‘4th part of the Trinity’. The Bible shows you the real Mary, the Roman Church shows you the pagan Mary who herself has become a god. Which one do you think is the real Mary?

In 1854, Pope Pius IX issued a decree about their “virgin Mary’, and in that writing he declared that Mary was equal with Jesus Christ. Pope Pius IX said about Mary Let all the children of the Catholic Church, who are so very dear to us, hear these words of ours. With a still more ardent zeal for piety, religion and love, let them continue to venerate, invoke and pray to the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, conceived without original sin. Let them fly with utter confidence to this most sweet Mother of mercy and grace in all dangers, difficulties, needs, doubts and fears. Under her guidance, under her patronage, under her kindness and protection, nothing is to be feared; nothing is hopeless.” Do you believe the popes, or do you believe the Bible? Pick one.

I Am A Born Again Bible Believing Christian Who Is Also A Zionist That Stands With The Jews And Supports The Nation Of Israel, Now You Pick A Side

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

Zionism is the belief that all the land of Israel, Zion, belongs to God who gave it to the Jews, and that God Himself will return at the Second Advent to rule the world from Israel.

In your King James Bible, Zion is a city and it is connected to both Bethlehem and Jerusalem for some really good reasons. In Bethlehem David was anointed by Samuel the prophet, in Bethlehem Jesus the Saviour was born. David became king over a unified Israel which included Israel to the north and Judah to the south. Jesus at the Second Advent will sit on David’s throne over a unified Israel in a kingdom that rules the entire world. If you hate Zionism now, then you better sit out the Millennium because Zion will be the center of the universe.

Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 135:21 (KJB)

Today is Day 207 of the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, and here in America that war has spilled over and popped up in the form of pro-Hamas and pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses all across America. All over social media, the words ‘Zion’ and ‘Zionists’ are being spit out as insults, with even many so-called Christians railing against the evil and hated Zionists. Alex Jones posted an anti-Israel video yesterday with the title ‘The Zionist Death Grip On The United States Government’. Jones has high support amongst the Bible-deficient Christian community who are shamefully unaware that God Himself is a Zionist who is preparing to bring in a Zionist kingdom that will be ruled by Zionism.

  • “The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 146:10 (KJB)
  • “And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Isaiah 2:3 (KJB)
  • “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.” Isaiah 8:18 (KJB)
  • “Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.” Isaiah 12:6 (KJB)
  • “Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” Isaiah 24:23 (KJB)
  • “Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” Isaiah 28:16 (KJB)
  • For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.” Isaiah 30:19 (KJB)
  • “For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.” Isaiah 34:8 (KJB)
  • “I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.” Isaiah 46:13 (KJB)
  • “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.” Jeremiah 30:17 (KJB)
  • “And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:2 (KJB)
  • Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.” Zechariah 8:3 (KJB)

The word ‘Zion’ appears 152 times in 152 verse in your King James Bible, and as you can see, that word is used to show a geographic location on the Earth that was ruled over by King David and will soon be ruled over by King Jesus in the Millennium. You can also see what God thinks about Zion, and what He thinks about the political doctrine we call Zionism. What is Zionism then from a biblical perspective? It is the belief that all the land of Israel belongs to God who gave it to the Jews, and that God Himself will return at the Second Advent to rule the world from Israel, also called Zion dozens of times. If you are a Christian who names Jesus, the coming Zionist King, as your Saviour, how on Earth are you not a Zionist? Because you don’t read your Bible, and if you do, you don’t believe what you read there.

Is Israel a perfect nation? No, obviously not, no nation is including America which seems to be on the verge of succumbing to a Communist takeover at the moment. Are the Jews perfect people? Not by a long shot. They are far from the Bible, and currently have next to no relationship with Jehovah God, a truly sad state of affairs. But none of that diminishes aught in any way the fact, if you believe your Bible, that Jesus Christ is coming as King to rule and reign from Jerusalem, the city of Zion. It will be then that He will redeem His people, the Jews, and they will be on top, and you who were left behind after the Rapture and somehow made it into the Millennium, will now live for a thousand years with the Jews on top.

“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.” Zechariah 8:23 (KJB)

Christian, do yourself a favor. As we watch America struggling with a very fast rising tide of antisemitism, why don’t you pick a side and stay there? You see, I believe my Bible, and I know how it all winds up, who wins, and how it all will go when the end times dust settles. So here and now, by faith, I stand on the side of the King of the Jews, on the side of His chosen people, and with the biblical, and literal, physical, and earthly Zion which is the City of David. Where do you stand?

And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.” Romans 11:26,27 (KJB)
