John Hagee prays for war in the name of Jesus
Jan 17, 2012
Here is a short video of John Hagee praying with Bennie Hinn that the Israelis will go to war to smite all enemies.
Hagee presumes that the Jews are the biblical Israelites, when in fact, the Israelites were the so-called "lost tribes" of the Northern Kingdom, while the term "Jew" referred to Judah, the Southern Kingdom only.
Hagee presumes that the old Jerusalem is the inheritor of God's promises, whereas Paul says in Gal. 4:25 that the physical city of Jerusalem is Hagar, and her children are therefore Ishmaelites who are NOT the inheritors of the Kingdom. So instead of casting out the bondwoman for their carnality, John Hagee wants them to use their carnality to make war and violence in the attempt to usurp the inheritance.
Hagee presumes that God is on the side of the Jews in this coming conflict, and so he presses for war. In fact, Isaiah 29:3 says that God is the One who is laying siege to Jerusalem in this battle, and that the city will be destroyed by a nuclear device (vs. 5, 6). In his zeal to "save Jerusalem," Hagee is actually praying for its final demise.
Like Judas, John Hagee thinks that he can force God to save the day by betraying Christ in this matter of Joseph's birthright. Like Judas, he may live to regret it.
Fortunately, the church as a whole lost its spiritual authority back in 1993, when its 40 Jubilees of authority ran out, and they were replaced by the Overcomers. This is the pattern of King Saul and David, as I have explained many times. Yes, this war will come at some point, but it will not be in answer to the prayers of John Hagee, nor will victory come to the Israeli state. It will instead be a disaster for them, because "It Is Written."
I have a suggestion for John Hagee. It is a more eloquent model prayer, written by a much wiser man than he. It was written by Mark Twain a century ago just for people like John Hagee:
"O Lord our Father, our young patriots, idols of our hearts, go forth to battle – be Thou near them! With them, in spirit, we also go forth from the sweet peace of our beloved firesides to smite the foe.
O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with their little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it – for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet!
We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen."
Such is the true prayer of the carnal Christian. And this is why God replaced Saul with a man after His own heart.
