Biblical Zionism versus Political Zionism

There seems to be a growing trend today where people are making the mistake of disqualifying the covenant people who live within the Modern State of Yisra’el (Israel) with their government which is controlled by Rome and the Illuminati. 

In spite of the Illuminati-controlled government in the Modern State of Yisra’el, the land of Yisra’el and Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) are still set-apart and qodesh (holy) because of the covenant that YaHuWaH made with Abraham. 

The prophecy in Isaiah 66:8 about Yisra’el being reborn in one day came to pass in 1948. However, Satan has his agenda with Yisra’el, just as in the days when Messiah was here. Rome was in control then also, but the people were still YaHuWaH’s people then and they are still YaHuWaHs people today. The land given to Abraham is where the borders of the land of Yisra’el are to this day:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 15:18 In the same day YHWH made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 17:8 And I will give unto you, and to your seed after your, the land wherein you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their Elohiym.

This is the land where YaHuWaH has chosen to place his name (Deuteronomy 16:6-11, 26:2). The attitude of the nations and their justification against Yisra’el (Israel) is being fueled by this kind of attitude where people are saying “The Jews in Yisra’el are not the real Jews and the Modern State of Yisra’el is not the true Yisra’el.” 

This rationale and attitude is wrong in many counts as I will illustrate from scripture in this study. Only the Heavenly Father, YaHuWaH knows who His elect are, and it is not up to us to decide. Those who are reckoned as sons of Abraham are the ones who are heirs to the land given to Abraham. But how do we determine who is a son of Abraham?

Galatiym (Galatians) 3:

6 Even as Abraham believed Elohiym, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.

7 Know you therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.

8 And the scripture, foreseeing that Elohiym would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the besowrah (gospel) unto Abraham, saying, In you shall all nations be blessed.

9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

Those who believe in the promises of Elohiym in the scriptures are called “children of Abraham,” and it is they who are given the right to inherit the land given to Abraham: 

Galatiym (Galatians) 4:

22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bond maid, the other by a free woman.

23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the free woman was by promise.

*Note: only those who are born from above in Messiah are considered the children of the free woman. But the children of the slave woman are not heirs to the land of promise. 

Back in the days when there were unrighteous Kings like Ahab (who allowed his foreign wife Jezebel to rule in Yisra’el), the prophet Eliyahuw (Elijah) was called to give a word of rebuke to who? The nation of Yisra’el! Now, just because a foreign woman ruled over Yisra’el at that time, did that disqualify the people of Yisra’el from being Yisra’el ? Of course not! 

To say that the nation back then was not the true Yisra’el just because of their unrighteous kings would not be accurate. In the days when Messiah was here, we know that Caiaphas was appointed by Rome (not a Levite) and the government were Roman-appointed men like King Herod who was a Phoenician. But does that mean that YaHuWaH did not establish them as a nation? 

Do we give credit to Rome or the United Nations as the one who established Yisra’el as a nation in 1948? No---of course not! When people make these kinds of blanket statements, it makes it appear that Satan is the one who allowed the Modern State of Yisra’el to be reborn in one day. But that is not true. YaHuWaH used a king who worshiped Zoroaster named King Cyrus and even called him “anointed” in Isaiah 45:1. King Cyrus was a heathen King who gave the decree for Yerushalyim (Jerusalem) to be rebuilt back in 457 B.C. 

YaHuWaH still uses Illuminati money to further his cause. The wealth of the wicked has been laid up for the just (Proverbs 13:22). We don’t justify the nations coming against Yisra’el just because Yisra’el’s government and secular leaders are following the Illuminati agenda. That would be like the other nations of the world coming against the American people because our current President is Muslim and a Communist-Socialist. Would that be fair for the nations to judge all Americans based on our President and not on the “set-apart” people of Yisra’el who are living here? 

The people who belong to YaHuWaH are those whom he has given the land of Yisra’el to inherit. And to say that the entire State of Yisra’el is all secular and there are no covenant people living there today is not accurate. We need to make sure that we are not making statements that are way too general. We should make a distinction between the government of Yisra’el and the covenant people who live there. While the Jewish people living in the modern state of Yisra’el are largely in unbelief, there are many of them who are Messianic and they do believe in Yahuwshuwa as the Messiah. YaHuWaH is faithful to his promises, to the land and the ones who are sealed unto the day of redemption (Zechariah 12:10).

I am very familiar with Zionism and I expose it all the time. “The Vatican Assassins” is a book I read years ago by Eric Jon Phelps, and I found out that the term “Zionism” was a phrase coined by the Jesuits in Rome---not the Jews. There is of course “Biblical Zionism” versus secular or “Political Zionism,” which has an agenda. What is the difference? Political Zionism is not willing to wait on the Creator to send his Messiah. 

They want to preempt the return of the true Messiah from Heaven with a false man-made Messiah (quite possibly a clone of Pope John Paul II possessed by Satan), and they want to seat him in the 3rd Jewish Temple along with “The Abomination of Desolation” or “The Image of the Beast” which will be “given life and made to speak” (Revelation 13:15). Satan is always trying to bring confusion by developing a close counterfeit with a different agenda. True “Biblical Zionism” is interested in the things of Heaven. True “Biblical Zionism” has a desire to see the return of the “King of Kings” from Heaven to set up his earthly reign here on the throne of King David.

We hear a lot of these extreme views today being verbalized such as “The black people are the real Jews and the white Jews from Europe are fake Jews.” That is a lie from the pit of Hell!

Why do you think that Ya’aqob (Jacob) gave his son Yahuwceph a coat of “many colors?”

It is because Abraham’s seed would be “sown” to the ends of the earth as they would mingle with every tribe, tongue, and nation and skin color!

Therefore, the Jewish People (the House of Yahuwdah) are not limited to any one skin color. There are Yahuwdiy (Jews) who belong to the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) of many different colors, and nationalities. 

We have to be careful how we say things or we will end up feeding the hatred that is out there towards the Yahuwdiy (Jewish) people. One brother I know made a statement that those belonging to Judaism are not true Jews. He said that those who belong to YaHuWaH are true Jews. But my response to him was this: 

Who are we to say who has the DNA of a Yahuwdiy (Jew) or not? I know that DNA alone cannot save us. But what if there are those who are trapped in Orthodox Judaism today who truly belong to the tribe of Yahuwdah (Judah) and they are “The elect after the foreknowledge of the Father, sprinkled with the blood of Messiah and sanctified by the Spirit? (1st Peter 1:1-2). 

The Heavenly Father knows who his elect are in advance before they come to the knowledge of the truth. We are not the ones that can make that determination based on where they are at right now. 

The unrighteous kings of Judah were still of Judah even though they continued to worship Ba’al. But in eternity, we will find out who were his elect all along. The prodigal son always had his father’s DNA when he was lost. But he did not realize who he was until he came back home. 

The ones who are “the elect” were always his from eternity past. When people make blanket statements about Yisra’el not being the true Yisra’el or the Jews living there are not the true Jews (Yahuwdiy), they are not looking at things from an eternal perspective. It is not up to us to determine who the elect are and who are not “the elect.” Until the day of Messiah’s return, there will be the “wheat and the tares” growing up together until the harvest. 

Until then, we have to preach the besorah (gospel) to all who will listen and we must not be guilty of speaking a curse against Yisra’el like Baalim did. To speak out against Political Zionism is fine. But let’s be careful not to make blanket statements about the State of Yisra’el as a whole or the Jewish people who live there. 

We are commanded to preach the gospel “to the Jew first” (Romans 1:16). The prophets declared that two-thirds of the Jewish People will perish and follow the Anti-Messiah (Antichrist), but there will be a remnant of one-third who will be sealed in the foreheads according to Ezekiel 9, because they will not end up taking the “Mark of the Beast” but they will “sigh and cry at the abominations” that are being done in Jerusalem in the last days. They will be sealed in the foreheads and they will be saved when Yahuwshuwa returns and they will finally see the one whom they have pierced face to face (Zechariah 12:10).

The Seed of Abraham Leavened into the Whole Earth

There is a parable that our Messiah told in Matthew 13:33. In this parable, the woman is the Holy Spirit as well as Jerusalem (the mother of us all according to Galatians 4:26). The earth is the whole batch of dough and the “leaven” is the gospel message (the besowrah). But the “seed of Abraham” is the three measures of meal. Who are the seed of Abraham? Is it those who carry the physical DNA of Abraham? Yes, it does include them but it goes beyond physical DNA. Even those who have the DNA of Abraham must repent, accept the blood of Yahuwshuwa Messiah as atonement for their sins and obey Torah.

In Luke 3, Yahuwchanon (John) the Immerser (Baptizer) rebuked those who were putting their trust in bloodline identity. He was essentially saying to them “just because you are the physical descendants of Abraham, does not mean you are automatically saved---you must show the fruit of repentance by obeying the commandments.” Listen to what he says:

Luqas (Luke) 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luqas (Luke) 3:Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our fatherfor I say unto you, That Elohiym is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

Now, let us see what this parable is all about:

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 13:33 Another parable spoke he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

The Kingdom of Elohiym (Heaven):

1. Followers of Messiah from the House of Yahuwdah (Judah or Jews).
2. Followers of Messiah from the House of Ephraim (Yisra’el).
3. Followers of Messiah from the Nations who are grafted into Yisra’el as “native born” (Ezekiel 47:22-23). 

Kingdom of Satan (Darkness): 

1. Those who don’t believe Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah from Judah (Jews).
2. Those who don’t believe Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah from Ephraim (Yisra’el).
3. Those who don’t believe Yahuwshuwa is the Messiah from the nations.

There are 6 groups represented above and 6 is the number of Adam, man and beast because all were created on the 6th day of creation.

The only difference is the 1st group belonging to the Kingdom of Heaven, have received the “blood of the lamb” as atonement for their sins and they have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. In other words, they have the “breath” of YaHuWaH breathed into them.

The final Yom Kippur following the Great Tribulation for Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) will come at a heavy price because two-thirds of the Jewish people in the land of will be destroyed:

Zekaryahuw (Zechariah) 13:

8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, says YHWH, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, YHWH is my Elohiym.

Here, we see the dragon casting down to the earth “a third part of the stars” as he will persecute the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. They will go through the fire of affliction and they will be tested and tried for ten days during the “Ten Days of Awe” between Trumpets & Atonement (Revelation 2:10).

Revelation 12:

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto Elohiym, and to his throne.

The woman here is “Mother Jerusalem” (Galatians 4:26), and the remnant of her seed are “the third part of the stars” who “came out of great tribulation” (Revelation 7:14). These remaining one-third will come out of the fire of cleansing and they will be saved. YaHuWaH will give to these remaining Jewish people a new heart and a new spirit (Ezekiel 36:26), forgiving their sins forever (Jeremiah 31:34). The Apostle Sha’ul (Paul) spoke of this time of the outpouring of Yah’s spirit upon the nation of Yisra’el when he wrote, “all Yisra’el shall be saved” (Romans 11:26). This future time of national cleansing and restoration will culminate with the Yahuwdiy (Jewish) people accepting Yahuwshuwa their Messiah and finally saying: YaHuWaH is my Elohiym (Zechariah 13:9).

Three Harvests Seen in the Menorah & Seven Feasts

The Seven-Branch Menorah represents the 7-Month Cycle to the 7 Feasts of YaHuWaH which begins in the Spring in the first month on the Hebrew Calendar called Abib and culminates in the seventh month on the Hebrew Calendar called Tishrei. The “First-Fruits” Resurrection happened during the Barley Harvest in the spring three days after Passover. This represents all those righteous people who died under the Abrahamic Covenant but did not have permanent blood atonement for their sins. They were in a holding place called “Abraham’s Bosom” (Luke 16), until Messiah went into the lowest parts of the earth and harvested them as his “First-Fruits” offering and presented them before the Father in Heaven. Then at Shabuoth (Pentecost) 50 days later, the Priests were supposed to present two barley loaves before YaHuWaH (Leviticus 23:17). The first picked barley represents the first group who were resurrected and seen alive after his crucifixion (Matthew 27:52-53). The loaves of Barley on Pentecost (Shabuoth) represent the “mature” (baked in the oven by tribulation, fire) and they are the Two Houses of Yisra’el (Ephraim & Judah).

Then, at the 2nd coming of Messiah, this will be during the season of the Wheat Harvest. All of the end-time prophecies are about the Wheat and the Tares (not the barley). The Barley Harvest represents those saved under the 1st Covenant who were then redeemed after Yahuwshuwa resurrected. The first wheat harvest at Shabuoth (Pentecost) represents all those who were redeemed after his ascension into Heaven and were present in Yerushalayim on that day. The 2nd Wheat Harvest are those saved under the Renewed Covenant in the end-time Harvest during the Fall Feasts (Revelation 14). This is also the same season when the grapes are harvested in the fall--the wine-press of his wrath!

Shemoth (Exodus) 23:16 And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of your labours, which you have sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when you have gathered in your labours out of the field.

Shemoth (Exodus) 34:22 And you shall observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end.

As you can see from the above verses, there are 3 different harvests:

1.) The first fruits of the barley in the spring (after Passover) represent those who were resurrected by Messiah from Abraham’s bosom after his crucifixion during his “three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

2.) The first fruits of the wheat harvest at Pentecost represent those who received the Holy Spirit & the Renewed Covenant in Jerusalem on that day.


3.) The end-time harvest of wheat which is the second harvest of saints in the Fall Feasts at Sukkoth.

Bloodline identity ALONE is incomplete. Our DNA cannot save us. Our identity is in the blood of the Lamb who imparts to us the Holy Spirit who in turn writes the Torah in our hearts and in our minds----in other words the Renewed Covenant!

In the meantime, let us not be guilty of speaking against the land that YaHuWaH gave to Abraham and to his seed.

Who are the Seed of Abraham?

Galatians 3:29 And if you be Messiah’s, then are you Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

But let us not “boast against the branches” because of their unbelief! The Apostle Sha’ul related to us in Romans 11, that although some of the original branches have been cut out of the Olive Tree because of their unbelief in Messiah Yahuwshuwa, we who are “grafted-in” should not boast!

Because YaHuWaH is able to again to graft those branches back into their own Olive Tree once they come to know the Messiah!

As a matter of fact, YaHuWaH says this concerning those who are grafted into the Olive Tree of Yisra’el:

Romans 11:21 For if Elohiym spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not you.

Let’s not make the mistake of setting ourselves up as judges before the time is come. The Lamb’s Book of Life has not been opened up yet and there is only ONE who was found worthy to open up this book:

Revelation 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, You are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and have redeemed us to Elohiym by your blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

The Only one who is worthy to open up the books and judge whose name is written in the Book of Life is the Lamb! His name is Yahuwshuwa our Righteous King Forever and Ever, Awmane!

Spiritual Descendants & Physical Descendants

Abraham was promised BOTH a seed “as numerous as the stars of heaven” (righteous people of faith) and a seed as numerous “as the sands on the seashore” (blood descendants of the tribes of Yisra’el):

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 22:

16 And said, by myself have I sworn, says YHWH, for because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son:

17 That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

18 And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice.

The Hebrew word for “stars” refers to a spiritual Congregation of people belonging to YaHuWaH through blood Covenant:

#3556 kowkab ko-kawb’ probably from the same as 3522 (in the sense of rolling) or 3554 (in the sense of blazing); a star (as round or as shining); figuratively, a prince:--star (-gazer). Star of Messiah, brothers, youth, numerous progeny, personification, God’s omniscience. 

The Hebrew word for “sand” refers to the land of Yisra’el itself, the territory that has been given as an inheritance to Abraham and his descendants:

#2334 Chavvowth Ya`iyr khav-vothe’ yaw-eer’ from the plural of 2333 and a modification of 3265; hamlets of Jair, a region of Palestine:--(Bashan- ) Havoth-jair or “villages of Jair”; certain villages on the east of Jordan, in Gilead or Bashan, which were taken by Jair, the son of Manasseh, and called after his name.

There are two different Hebrew words used for “Congregation” in the scriptures:

#5712 `edah ay-daw’ feminine of 5707 in the original sense of fixture; a stated assemblage (specifically, a concourse, or generally, a family or crowd):--assembly, company, congregation, multitude, people, swarm. Compare 5713.

*Note: This word “edah” refers to the worldwide corporate body of people of faith by blood Covenant under Abraham’s Covenant, Mosaic & Renewed Covenant. This means a heavenly or spiritual congregation.

#6951 qahal kaw-hawl’ from 6950; assemblage (usually concretely):--assembly, company, congregation, multitude.

#6952 qhillah keh-hil-law’ from 6950; an assemblage:--assemblycongregation.

*Note: These words above, qahal, or qhillah pertain to a particular Assembly of people in the natural or physical. This means an earthly Congregation.
Thus we can see that YaHuWaH has made a covenant with the physical blood descendants of Abraham, as well as those who are grafted in by the blood of Messiah into the same family. Those who are “born again“ of incorruptible seed, (born from above by the Spirit) are going to rule and reign with Messiah over those who were not born again prior to Messiah’s second coming (those who were sealed and did not take the mark of the beast), yet they are physical descendants of Abraham. During the Millennial Reign of Messiah, both the physical descendants of Abraham as well as the Spiritual descendants (who will have put on incorruption at the resurrection), will dwell together as one people (physical & spiritual). Likewise there will be two priesthoods serving together side-by-side during the Millennium as in the days of King David. The Sons of Levi (the earthly priesthood) and the Order of Melchizedek (the eternal priesthood who never die) will serve together in the Tabernacle of David. After the 1,000 year reign of our Messiah Yahuwshuwa, the New Heaven & the New Earth will then come down out of Heaven (Revelation 21). The physical (earthly) will then become one with the heavenly (eternal), and there will no longer be a separation. All those people who become “born again” during the Millennium will then become part of one resurrected bride (the New Yerushalayim), and the rest who are deceived by Satan will be cast into the Lake of Fire with him (Revelation 21:8).

Which Mount Zion Should We be Zealous For?

Even though the term “Zionism” has become a dirty word since the Illuminati hi-jacked this word and began using it for their Antichrist agenda, there is the real Mount Tziyown (Zion) that is after the interests of heaven. This Mount Tziyown (Zion) in Hebrew means “a parched place.” It represents the burning Mountain where YaHuWaH first wanted Yisra’el to hear his voice, yet they refused. It repre-sents those who have been purified by his consuming fire. Mount Sinai is likened unto “bondage” and Hagar (Galatians 4:22-26), because it memorializes the place where Yisra’el committed harlotry with the golden calf. The word “Sinai” means “Babylonian moon god.” But Mount Tziyown (Zion) is in Yerushalayim (the mother of us all), and is typified in Sarah (the free woman). Mount Tziyown (Zion) is another name for the city of Yerushalayim---the city of our great King David who typifies our Messiah at his second coming. Those who come out of the fire of affliction and tribulation are found to be like pure gold (refined in the fire) like the free woman (Sarah). Mount Tziyown is the place of our spiritual destiny:

1st Keefa (Peter) 2:6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Tziyown (Zion) a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded. 

Ibriym (Hebrews) 12:22 But you are come unto Mount Tziyown (Zion), and unto the city of the living Elohiym, the heavenly Yerushalayim (Jerusalem), and to an innumerable company of angels. 

Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the Mount Tziyown (Zion), and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. 

Romans 11:26 And so all Yisra’el shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Tziyown (Zion) the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Ya’aqob (Jacob). 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 37:32 For out of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of Mount Tziyown (Zion): the zeal of YHWH of hosts shall do this. 

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come you, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohiym of Ya’aqob (Jacob); and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his pathsfor out of Tziyown (Zion) shall go forth the Torah (law), and the word of YHWH from Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).
