Today we are quoting from Mike Oppenheimer of Lighthouse Trails Publishing and Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries. They recently wrote on the topic of Replacement Theology, the teaching that the church has replaced Israel and therefore God’s promises are now passed on to the church.


From Jan Markell:

“What nation could be “apartheid on steroids”? Surely some Islamic stronghold, right?


Try Israel. That’s according to World Vision’s Steve Haas writing for the Lausanne Movement.

Haas goes on to suggest that all the problems of the Palestinian people perpetrated upon them by Islamic thug dictators are, in reality, the fault of Israel. He even blames the demise of the Palestinian Christian population upon Israel when, in fact, Palestinian Islamic leaders have driven out the Christians.

Haas states, “As peacemakers, we have been tasked by a justice agenda of love and sacrifice. I truly believe we can be pro-Palestinian, pro-Israeli, and pro-justice because we are adamantly pro-Jesus.”1

Don’t believe it.

I’ve been present at a tragic event calledHope for the Holy Land.” The one-night event visited my alma mater a few years ago, Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. It featured a World Vision rep, Mae Cannon, Willow Creek’s Lynne Hybels, and The Holy Land Trust rep Sami Awad.

Their approach offered zero hope for the Holy Land because they only wanted to talk about “the occupation.” Jesus didn’t live in “occupied territory.” It was and is God’s land and the borders are outlined in the Bible.”

From Dr. David Reagan:

Weastern-gate-hy is the Eastern Gate to the Old City of Jerusalem closed, and what does it have to do with Bible prophecy?

“Then He brought me back to the outer gate of the sanctuary which faces toward the east, but it was shut. And the LORD said to me, This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the LORD God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut.” Ezekiel 44:1-2

How great is our God, to give us prophecy to help us understand His ways.

SUNDAY POST: Why Ezekiel 38 Precedes Daniel 9

“… the Jewish leadership of the Christian movement called the Church had become divided over the issue of whether Gentiles who were coming into Christianity had to put themselves under the Law first. In other words, did a Gentile have to become a Jew before becoming a Christian? The unspoken question that lurked behind it
