The notion that there will be some sort of ‘rapture’ followed by some sort of ‘reign of Antichrist’ followed by some earthly kingdom that lasts 1000 years followed by some terrible battle followed by the destruction of all unbelievers followed by the eternal kingdom of Heaven is entirely unscriptural.
It stems from a doctrinal system invented out of the over fertile imaginations of ‘dispensationalists’ in the 19th century. It has no basis in exegesis of Scripture and instead offers a false reading of Scripture.
It is popular with Christian Zionists and others who have little familiarity with the proper interpretation of Scripture. These Christian Zionists heretically exalt Israel, the modern State, to a rank above all other nations and by doing so attribute to the modern city of Jerusalem an unhealthy and false importance. At the same time they denigrate both Palestinians and other Arabs and discount their legitimate concerns in favor of the Jews, which they portray as the eternal ‘people of God’ (unless those Jews repent and receive Messiah, in which case they will roast like all the rest).
Christian Zionists teach untruth- because they accept an untruthful doctrinal system. The political consequences of their false teaching have stained and soiled American foreign policy since the rise of AIPAC and other Zionist organizations.
Christian Zionists have found strange bedfellows in Jewish Zionists- whose aim is also the ultimate extermination of the Palestinians in their ever growing thirst for Lebensraum in the West Bank and other Palestinian areas. Both Jewish Zionists and Christian Zionists distort Scripture. As such, both should not be supported by people of faith.
Don’t be fooled by false exegesis based on a false hermeneutic. Learn what Scripture actually says and turn your back on the gibberish that passes for exposition in unlearned and ignorant corners of Christianity.
