In the previous video in this series, Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast and the 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘥 podcast, read from Matthew 7 and Jeremiah 23 concerning true and false prophets and teachers, and he began to comment on the teachings of Pastor John Hagee. In this video, Hank continues to consider Hagee’s teachings in light of those passages. Hagee is increasingly recognizable as a militant Zionist, routinely castigating as anti-Semitic those pastors who do not embrace the notion of a secret coming of Christ followed by a Holy Land Holocaust in which a vast majority of Jews perish. Hagee places greater emphasis on returning Jews to the land than turning Jewish people to the Lord. Says Hagee, “Let us put an end to this Christian chatter that ‘all the Jews are lost’ and can’t be in the will of God until they convert to Christianity!” Incredibly, Hagee goes so far as to take the onus off of the Jewish community and place it squarely on the Jewish Christ: “If Jesus refused by his words or actions to claim to be the Messiah to the Jews,” asks Hagee, “then how can the Jews be blamed for rejecting what was never offered?” Hagee goes so far as to say that the Jewish people “wanted [Jesus] to be their Messiah but he absolutely refused….the Jews were not rejecting Jesus as Messiah, it was Jesus who was refusing to be Messiah to the Jews!” Anyone who has read through the Gospels even once knows full well that Jesus emphatically contradicted such sentiments. Who can forget the emotionally charged words uttered by Jesus as He was leaving the temple: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing” (Matthew 23:37 NIV).
