No.

If you click on my name you can read my personal statement. I used to be a believer in "Israel" as you are, along with all my fellow Christians in the circles I moved in, but I resigned my membership in a Pentecostal Holiness church in 1998 after 21 years, in no small part because of my doubts in relation to that teaching. It had been my first and only church from the time the LORD apprehended me for His purposes in 1977. I continued to fellowship with other Christian believers in the Vancouver, BC area until 2004 when I left Canada for my native country of Scotland.

The Lord Jesus Christ had called my wife and me out of the organised Christian churches at that time and since then we have continued to grow in Him through our own times of prayer and study in a very peaceful home and community in Perth. We obtain irregular teaching through a couple of ministries in the United States on the internet and through the ministry of the Spirit of Truth.

It occurred just recently that when I discussed "Israel" with a Christian who believes that the Jewish State is the regathering of the ancient people of that nation to the Land, that is written about in scripture, for some reason they came to the same conclusion as you, that I was a Muslim. This must be the effect of their belief in "Israel" which is a heart idol that demands absolute allegiance and distorts everything one hears or thinks in relation to that state. This indicates to me that this delusion is deepening and dividing Christians along that line that so often led to persecution and martyrdoms in the past. Therefore those who do not love (worship) the Jewish State are seen as heretics and "not really Christians". This serves to confirm for me that this belief is rooted in the carnal mind.

This may also indicate that we are approaching the denouement, the final act, of this divinely instigated drama. Here is a vision that was given to a Christian teacher in 1986 that describes the events that have taken place in the Middle East since that time:

I hope you take the time to read it. It is not long and it contains some very important information.

Since I have been where you are I do know that the grip this belief has on one's mind seems to be from the Lord. The narrative that you have described in our short discussion here demonstrates that we actually believe many of the same things with the exception of the belief in the Jewish State. This belief has then led you to divorce the Jewish State, or at least its rulers, from any role in the globalist scheme, and absolves them from culpability for the actions of NATO and the UN. You have even indicated that you believe the leadership of the United States is not fully committed to this scheme.

This is the effect that inevitably comes from believing the things you do about "Israel". It detaches you from the actual history of that State and the recorded machinations of those who brought it into being. It also blinds you to the ongoing deception and malevolent action of the leaders against not only the Muslims but also the Christians in that region.

Ask yourself one question: If God rejected the ancient people of the Northern Kingdom for their idolatrous immoral practices and the people of the Southern Kingdom for similar practices plus their hypocrisy and greed and eventually their rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ, which continues to this day, then why would He bring them back into that land without their first having repented and received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord? This was the stipulation He gave to them in the Law of Tribulation in Deuteronomy chapter 29. Has He then changed His mind? There are even many followers of Judaism who reject the jewish State on that ground.

There is a reason why God has brought these people back to the Land at this time but it is not the reason most Christians believe in. Here is another book to read that may give you more information on this subject from scripture and which prophecies are actually being fulfilled. There is indeed a coherent plan being worked out and it is the plan and purpose of our Father that will succeed when all the efforts of men have failed.
