Opinion (John Hagee, founder and senior pastor of Cornerstone Church, San Antonio, Texas, CEO Global Evangelism Television (GETV): “John Hagee declared on his Hagee Hotline show last week that God will destroy America because of the way President Obama and the Democrats are treating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. ‘It’s proven by history,’ he said.
“’I am a student of world history,’ he said, ‘And you can wrap up world history in 25 words or less and here it is: the nations that blessed Israel prospered and the nations that cursed Israel were destroyed by the hand of God.’
“According to Hagee, the Egyptian, Babylonian, Ottoman and British Empires all fell because they did not give the proper respect to Israel, the only country ever to exist because God ordained it for his favorite people. Of course, real historians all agree that those empires all fell from their own weight because they became too large to control.
“’God could care less about our relationship with other nations,’ Hagee said. ‘But he’s watching what America does as it responds to Israel. If America turns its back on Israel, God will turn his back on America. And that’s a fact. It’s proven by history.'”
My Comment: On more than one occasion I have heard the same opinion from various people who are not historians or preachers. It apparently applies both to love and to punishment. But that is what makes it the Israeli nation as it performs its mission to be the Light to the nations of the world and bring the method of revealing the upper force to the world.
God will punish America and the entire world, but even before that it will start to punish Israel again because it is our incorrect behavior that causes the American attitude toward us.
It is not Obama who makes decisions, but us, through our attitude towards our responsibilities in this world! Indeed, we are the only ones in this world who have the freedom of choice (see the article “The Freedom”) to reveal the Creator in the connection between us.
This is the only free action that was left to humans by nature, the Creator, and it was given only to us, and for this we are hated. The nations of the world feel their dependence on the people of Israel, and anti-Semitism is their natural reaction to our behavior.
