Embracing the call to be Zionists

What is a Zionist? In the secular world, Zionism is the belief that the Jews should have a Jewish state called Israel that inhabits the boundaries of the ancient land of Israel for the preservation of Jewish culture. This principle is in keeping with what the Lord prophesied through his prophets and apostles in the Bible, but there is a greater meaning to what Zionism really is in the spiritual sense that ties in with the physical place called Mount Zion that encompasses Jerusalem.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ultimately, the Bible defines Zion (synonymous with Jerusalem) as the place from which the Lord reigns and the place where his people congregate to worship. Not only is it a physical place on earth, but it is a spiritual place in heaven and is a spiritual state of mind for believers in Jesus Christ. A true Zionist is one who follows Jesus Christ and who looks forward to his actual reign on earth from Mount Zion in the same way he reigns in the heavenly Mount Zion. They understand that although the Jerusalem that exists now is under spiritual bondage and is the enemy of Christ (Galatians 4:22-26), one day it will be made new under Christ’s spiritual and physical control. Secular Zionists will play an important role in the last days for the manifestation of the new Zion because all Israel will one day be saved.

The importance of Mount Zion and Jerusalem in God’s plans is why so many international parties want to lay claim to it in some way and refuse to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel’s true capital. Satan also realizes the importance of Jerusalem in God’s plans to be exalted throughout the earth, which is why he works through many of the interested parties to fight Israel’s claims to it. As Lucifer coveted God’s throne in heaven, he covets Mount Zion for his own vain glory. This is why he will prompt the Antichrist to establish the abomination of desolation in Jerusalem and when that fails, he will prompt all the militaries of the world to come against Jerusalem at Armageddon. Here are some glimpses from scripture for the importance of Zion to the Lord and to those of us who are his people, the new Zionists:

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. Psalm 2:1-6

For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. Psalm 132:13

At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. Jeremiah 3:17

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

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. Zechariah 14:16

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,  And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. Revelation 3:12

  1. Hello harry i just wanted to ask you a question. I was just wondering why do atheists hate god so much and why are they not willing to reason.

    1. Hello again, Nick. Atheists hate God for several reasons. Some of them have Daddy or parent issues. They look at their own fallible parents, many times their dads, who they had a bad or nonexistent relationship with and project their strained experiences of their own parents onto God, equating God with their bad view of parenthood. Some of them don’t like the idea of someone telling them not to commit a certain sin that they find pleasure in, so when the Bible calls fornication or drug use (sorcery) a sin and they’re into that sin and they don’t want to let it go or want to dismiss any guilt for those sins, they’ll push God away in favor of those sins. Some of them hate God because maybe they experienced something traumatic or really hurtful or saw someone they loved go through suffering and blamed God for it or for not stopping or preventing it instead of blaming the fact that we live in an imperfect world made bad in many instances by human sin.

      They aren’t willing to reason because they are full of pride. Admitting that God & his Bible are very reasonable and factual in their accounts of spiritual, historical, & scientific matters would mean they would have to own up to their wrong way of thinking and they don’t like the idea of doing that. Yes, they are frustrating to deal with because of all of these things, but when you’ve confronted them at least twice about their fallible & evil way of thinking with Christ’s gospel, you really have no more obligations to continue debating with them if you choose not to. You can avoid their discussions and change the subject or avoid them for awhile if you want. We all have to answer to God for our own thoughts, beliefs, and actions. By continuing to reject Christ, they have chosen their own fate. Maybe they’ll get saved, maybe they won’t. That’s between them & God, so don’t pull your hair out over them.

      Paul told Titus in Titus 3:9-11, “But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.” Atheists’ questions become foolish when they show they aren’t really asking their questions to genuinely find the truth after you’ve presented solid evidence to refute their claims and/or questions. So Paul said after showing them God’s truth twice, you can walk away from them. This doesn’t mean you don’t love them or you shouldn’t pray for them or shouldn’t associate at all with them (depending on the situation), it just means you acknowledge they don’t want the truth & you don’t have to engage their unreasonableness any more.

      2. This YouTube video is full of unfounded assumptions. It assumes these were teachings of early Christians. It assumes the didache predates the New Testament. It assumes that the didache is more truthful than the NT. The didache was supposedly written in 96 AD. The New Testament has been proven to have been written and to have been in worldwide circulation BEFORE 96 AD. Clement of Rome, a Christian leader in the 1st century church, wrote in 95 AD and explained Jesus’ resurrection, proclaimed Jesus as both divine & human, talks about Jesus’ return from heaven, and quotes from several books in the NT. Clement also warned the church that there were people during that time who were fakers that taught false teachings that were similar to Christian teaching but they were wrong and were conjured up to exalt the false teachers.

        The apostle Paul also warned that there were false teachers distributing counterfeit letters to the church in his day by men posing as apostles or falsely claiming they carried letters from the true apostles. In 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2, he said, “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.” In Romans 3:7-8, Paul mentioned that people were circulating slanders about him by claiming he taught certain things that he, in fact, never taught.

        The didache teaches false doctrines that don’t line up with parts of the Bible. We know the NT is how it should be because it quotes the correct context & meanings of OT scripture. The didache, for example, says “Before the baptism, both the baptizer and the candidate for baptism, plus any others who can, should fast. The candidate should fast for one or two days beforehand.” This is never stated by Jesus or his disciples. It also says, “Your fasts should not be with the hypocrites, for they fast on Mondays and Thursdays. You should fast on Wednesdays and Fridays.” Right away, this shows that the didache must be a fake because such things were never taught by the apostles and they didn’t use the names of the week’s days, they used numbers such as “the first day of the week.” The didache also says, “Any prophet who orders a meal in the Spirit does not eat it; if he does, he is indeed a false prophet.” That isn’t in scripture. False prophets are judged by their doctrines or teachings, not by if they eat a “meal ordered in the Spirit”, whatever that means.

        The makers of this video also lied when they said the didache omits the divinity of Christ. The didache states, “Concerning baptism, you should baptize this way: After first explaining all things, baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, in flowing water.” It acknowledges the Trinity, equating Jesus with God.

        Whoever made this YouTube video also lied about James never acknowledging Jesus as God in his epistle. James opened his letter with the confession Paul spoke of in Romans 10, which says “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” James starts his epistle, or letter, with these words–“James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.” In chapter 2 of his epistle, James says, “My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.” He equated his half brother with God. So the video is an outright lie. It’s probably made by the Jesus Seminar, who constantly create lies to try to say Jesus was just human and not God.
