By the way, according to the Old Testament, the Jewish nation is NOT the Old Testament nation of Israel. It’s a breakaway nation – descendants of the Nation of Judah after the original Nation of Israel broke up into two parts – the kingdoms of Judah and Israel. These two kingdoms made war upon each other and had their own kings.
The descendants of the Kingdom of Israel are the “lost tribes of Israel” and according to Biblical Prophecy, must be restored before any “true” (Biblical Old Testament) nation of Israel can exist depending on your eschatological flavour. This is not to be confused with some who believe in a Christian doctrine which believes that no physical nation of Israel has anything to with the “end times,” indeed it is Christians who are now the “spiritual” nation of Israel and have replaced the Israelites as “God’s Chosen People.”
It never ceases to amaze me how many Christians don’t even know their own holy books. The Jews are only one part of the descendants of the original Nation of Israel and their forefathers made war against the other part of the Nation of Israel, according to The Holy Bible.
And it’s pretty scary to see so many calling for military strikes against Arab nations, and who have influence upon the work of some Statists.
Update: “DrWright” comments “if someone want’s me in a doomsday cult I need the original text.”
He’s right. These sorts of Christians calling for and hoping for the Battle of Armageddon really are a “death cult.” Not much difference between the goals of these folk and extreme Muslims. These folk want to rejoice at the killings of children and people in a war so that their “Saviour” can return. Some “religion of peace” that is, huh?
