Christian Zionism is one of the great poisons corrupting the contemporary Church. While we often point to faux-Christian con men like John Hagee, we should not forget that many Jews are actively involved in leading the Church astray. One such Jewish deceiver was Yechiel Eckstein who recently passed away.
From Christianity Today:
“Evangelicals have lost a major partner and friend from the Jewish community, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, who died suddenly today at his home in Jerusalem. He was 67. Inspired by God’s promise in Genesis 12:3 to bless those who bless Israel, Eckstein’s International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) worked for decades to improve relationships between the two faiths and raise more than $1.4 billion for projects in the Holy Land, mostly from evangelical donors.”
This is a staggering amount of money that American Evangelicals have given to build up the kingdom of antichrist in Palestine.
“Eckstein founded IFCJ in 1983 as a small organization with a mostly Jewish donor base. Thanks to his outreach, networking, and inroads with evangelical figures (including a particularly effective 1993 infomercial with Pat Boone), the organization ballooned into the largest source of Christian support for Israel and the Jewish people…
While evangelicals have grown more supportive of Israel, politically and spiritually, some observant Jews have remained suspicious, concerned about their proselytization strategies and motives. Eckstein worked for decades to build trust and friendship between evangelicals and Jews, focusing on their shared concern for the Holy Land.“
Eckstein’s efforts at “building trust” between the two groups apparently involved fleecing Christians and convincing his fellow Jews that in accepting Christian money there was no danger of being converted to Christ.
The Bible quite clearly states that, “to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ” (Galatians 3:16). The promises of grace made to Abraham are fulfilled in Christ, not in the apostate Jews, who are the wicked branches who have been plucked off because of their unbelief (Romans 11). Christians will not be blessed until they truly serve the seed of Abraham, Christ our King, instead of the synagogue of Satan.
