Evangelical Zionists are trying to “accelerate” the apocalypse because they think it will bring Jesus back
04/21/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

A Christian pastor believes that Iran's retaliatory attack on Israel was the start of the "Gog and Magog war" from the Bible and said he's going to lobby Congress not to "deescalate" tensions and instead support Israel's war.

A post on X, formerly Twitter, that showed an interview of Pastor John Hagee, founder of the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) lobbying group, was shared by independent journalist Lee Fang.

"Pastor John Hagee this am says Iran's missiles are the prophetic start of the 'Gog and Magog' war from the Bible (that ends w/ Jesus returning and Jews killed or converted)," he captioned the post. "Says he will travel to DC to lobby lawmakers not to 'deescalate' and support Israel. Asks for money."

"Prophetically, we are on the verge of the Gog-Magog war that Ezekiel described in chapters 38 and 39," Hagee said in the video recorded on Sunday and posted the next day, after over 200 Iranian missiles were fired on Israel, 99 percent of which were intercepted and destroyed by regional missile defense systems.

He believes there is no need for de-escalation. Instead, Christians United For Israel (CUFI), the Christian Zionist organization that Hagee founded in 2006, held an "emergency fly-in" Monday to visit lawmakers in Washington, D.C., including House Speaker Mike Johnson, to "tell them to stop shuffling papers and do something to help Israel." Meanwhile, CUFI is funded by millions of dollars by non-Christian Zionists Robert Shillman, the late Sheldon Adelson (now his wife Miriam) and Bernard Marcus.

According to a 2023 report from the Public Accountability Initiative LittleSis titled, "The Wealthy Donors Behind Christians United for Israel," Shillman of Cognex Corporation and Shillman Foundation, which has contributed $1.4 million to CUFI from 2021 to 2021, built his wealth as CEO of Cognex, a manufacturer of machine vision and barcode scanning software and sensors used in manufacturing automation. His foundation funds several rightwing and pro-Israel groups in the U.S., including the Zionist Organization of America.

On the other hand, Las Vegas Sands and Adelson Family Foundation's Miriam Adelson contributed $1.1 million to CUFI in 2020. The late billionaire Sheldon Adelson built an empire operating large casino resorts across the world through the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. His wife, Miriam is estimated to be worth $32 billion. He was a staunch supporter of Israel and his foundation has spent hundreds of millions pushing anti-Muslim propaganda.

Finally, Marcus of Home Depot and Marcus Foundation has contributed $60,000 to CUFI in both 2020 and 2021. Marcus is the co-founder of Home Depot who served as the company's first CEO and chairman until his retirement in 2002. Over the last 30 years, Marcus and his wife have donated more than $2 billion through the Marcus Foundation.

Critics say that Hagee doesn't need any of the suckers in his audience to donate a dime as his megadonors got him fully covered.

Hagee says he'll lobby Congress to back Israeli attacks on Iran

The pastor firmly believes that Biden's administration must back Israel. He also repeatedly called for strikes on Iran. Hagee told his flock he's heading to 250 evangelical leaders this week in Washington to lobby members of Congress to back Israel in its now-hot conflict with Iran. Middle Eastern country is at the center of prophecy about the second coming of Christ. He's also frequently called for a U.S. strike on Iran and once likened President Barack Obama's signing of the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran to a "finger in the eye of God."

Hagee said Sunday: "This attack by Iran, who launched more than 200 missiles yesterday, is a tribute to the weak and pathetic leadership of Joe Biden." He further said that God structured this in just a way that the door is now open and we're going to go through it like a bulldozer. The 84-year-old Hagee bizarrely added that if Ronald Regan, who died in 2004, was still president, "we wouldn’t be in this mess."

Biden, whom Hagee has referred to as the antichrist, claimed to have told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. won't participate in a retaliatory strike against Iran. The president has expressed concerns about a widening Middle East conflict.

Previously, Hagee said Hitler was carrying out God’s will during the Holocaust and that the Antichrist would be partly Jewish. Also, CUFI has its unique agenda for Israel, which has little to do with the interests of Jews, religious or secular. It wants Jews to move to Israel to hasten the end times and bring the Second Coming of Christ. Hagee wrote all of this in his bestselling 2005 book Jerusalem Countdown. As Abraham Foxman, then national director of the Anti-Defamation League, told the Forward in 2015, "It is for their own salvation, not for Jewish salvation; it's so they will see the Second Coming of the Messiah. A campaign of Christians to send Jews to Israel is morally offensive."

Nor is this merely some irrelevant theological position; it influences policy, the news outlet further wrote.
