Bush, Blair, Zionism, Armageddon and the corruption of Christianity
What are the reasons for the upcoming invasion of Iraq?
Some say, "Its the oil" other speculate that it's about the Euro. All kinds of theories have been explored yet all we can say for certain is that there is not any one reason or motivation for what is being described as a "new order in the Middle East".
We can say for certain that these causes or reason can be divided into two categories. The primary reasons and the secondary reasons.
I have listed below links to an number of articles, which suggests that one of the primary reasons is Dispensationalism.
The links explore exactly how Dispensationalism may be the primary influence as regards the motivations of President Bush and Prime Minister Blair.
In God he trusts - how George Bush infused the White House with a religious spirit Bush's born-again Christianity cannot be questioned. Indeed, it dovetails with his widely attested lack of intellectual curiosity, his seemingly utter certainty of his convictions and with the difficulty of persuading him to change a mind already made up. Few mortals can compete with God for his ear.
When U.S. Foreign Policy Meets Biblical Prophecy: Does the Bible foretell regime change in Iraq? Did God establish Israel's boundaries millennia ago? Is the United Nations a forerunner of a satanic world order? For millions of Americans, the answer to all those questions is a resounding yes.
For many believers in biblical prophecy, the Bush administration's go-it-alone foreign policy, hands-off attitude toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and proposed war on Iraq are not simply actions in the national self-interest or an extension of the war on terrorism, but part of an unfolding divine plan.
is the message of the Christian Zionist? Simply stated it is this: Every
act taken by Israel is orchestrated by God, and should be condoned,
supported, and even praised by the rest of us.
"Never mind what Israel does," say the Christian Zionists.
"God wants this to happen."
"Never mind what Israel does," say the Christian Zionists. "God wants this to happen."
In order for most of today’s Christians to escape physical death, two-thirds of the Jews in Israel must perish, soon. This is the grim prophetic trade-off that fundamentalists rarely discuss publicly, but which is the central motivation in the movement’s support for Israel. It should be clear why they believe that Israel must be defended at all costs by the West. If Israel were militarily removed from history prior to the Rapture, then the strongest case for Christians’ imminent escape from death would have to be abandoned. This would mean the indefinite delay of the Rapture. The fundamentalist movement thrives on the doctrine of the imminent Rapture, not the indefinitely postponed Rapture.
Has The Christian Message Been Corrupted ?
of the Land: A History of Dispensational Approaches
is one of the most influential theological systems within the
universal church today. Largely unrecognised and subliminal, it has
increasingly shaped the presuppositions of fundamentalist,
evangelical, Pentecostal and charismatic thinking concerning Israel
and Palestine over the past one hundred and fifty years.
