All the way back in 2012, at the C.U.F.I. [Christians United For Israel Summit] in Washington D.C, Joseph Lieberman (Senator at the time) spoke to the gathering of people at that annual event. Here is an excerpt from a blog post at The Electronic Intifada by Alice Boch [7/18/2012] with a quote from Senator Joseph Lieberman, who is Jewish:
” . . . As Genesis tells us, “I am your brother, Joseph!” (Audience cheers). “We are children of the same father.” (Audience cheers). Pastor Hagee has enabled us to reunite. Jews and Christians, with our shared love for the Jewish state of Israel. We all know that the Bible is the word of God. And I must repeat that my dear friend Pastor John Hagee has received a call from God to begin the reunification of the Christians and Jews. He received that word in Jerusalem. Need I tell you that that special call, received in Jerusalem, was a local call. . .”
Do not expect to hear the soul saving gospel of Jesus Christ preached at those meetings in fact an article in the Washington Jewish Week said the following:
” Hagee has said repeatedly in interviews that proselytizing is unacceptable for CUFI members.” [Washington Jewish Week, By Neil Rubin, 7/18/2012]
There is the first red flag for me and every other true born again Bible believing Christian. When a person is truly saved, they will know through the power of the Holy Spirit of truth (John 16:13) that all people must be born again, according to Jesus Christ, in order to enter Heaven. (John 3:1-8) That includes ALL Jewish people throughout the world, and that includes all of the Jewish people that were present at the 2012 and 2013 C.U.F.I. Washington Summit meetings. Senator Joseph Lieberman told this crowd of over 5000 people at the 2012 Summit, which included many Christians that he had the same father as they did. That statement set off the second red flag with sirens sounding. I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ and my father is in Heaven above, and I have access to him, through my Saviour Jesus Christ. That same Jesus told us in the scriptures (God’s Word) that he was the only way to come to the father.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
Now as far as I know, former Senator Joseph Lieberman is NOT a believer in Jesus Christ, so how could he possibly have the SAME heavenly father as the Christian? Did Jesus Christ truly mean what he said there, or did he leave an option for certain people who rejected him?
It is also interesting that the former Senator Joe Lieberman has co-authored a book on the Sabbath along with David Klinghoffer who just happened to author another book entitled “Why The Jews Rejected Jesus” Friends this is NOT a small thing that I am talking about here. The former Senator Joe Lieberman co-authored a book with a man who wrote a book about the Jews and their rejection of Jesus Christ! The people at CUFI should be warning Joe Lieberman that unless he repents and puts his faith in Jesus Christ, he will perish in his sins according to Jesus himself! (John 8:24) Then maybe Joe will get saved and then he can preach to his friend David Klinghoffer and maybe he will get saved too!
So now you have Jewish unbelievers preaching at the CUFI conferences, to thousands of GULLIBLE Christians who have been seduced by the modern day “Christian” Zionism movement. They have been fed the LIE that they are under a curse if they do not bless Israel! Is that not amazing! DO NOT BE FOOLED PEOPLE! Do not allow yourself to become a PUPPET for that type of thing. Do NOT support something which the WORD of God does NOT support! Do not allow yourself to be SEDUCED by that FALSE message. The BIBLE warned US (that includes YOU) about the spirit of antichrist, and the UNBELIEVING Jewish people are clearly of an antichrist spirit. Why? Simply because they do NOT believe that Christ (Messiah) has come in the FLESH! Senator Joe Lieberman said “We all know that the Bible is the word of God.” so here are some passages from the Bible (word of God)
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:22)
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. (1 John 4:3)
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. (2 John 1:7)
Do not forget that the Jewish apostle Paul was delivered from JUDAISM, and after he got SAVED, the Jewish UNBELIEVERS wanted to KILL him! That is why the Holy Spirit prophesied through Paul about those who would DEPART from the FAITH in the last days! Paul would be outraged at what is taking place in the modern day regarding the BONDAGE of JUDAISM entering into the Christian body of Christ with NO resistance!
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; (1 Timothy 4:1)
Once again I must say that I am amazed at how people have become mesmerized by the modern day dispensational teachers, and have completely disregarded the Lord’s own command to preach the gospel to every creature! Jesus Christ is the “elephant in the room” in the “modern day church” and the one who we are not supposed to talk about. Can you imagine telling Christians who claim to be “filled with the Spirit of God,” that they should hold back from preaching the gospel to the Jews whom the Lord came to save? That is simply incredible and unbelievable to say the least. After the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead he told us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all people! Jesus declared that the believers would be SAVED, and that the unbelievers would be DAMNED! (Mark 16:15-16) The Jewish apostle Paul told us to “Preach the Word” in season, and out of season! (2 Timothy 4:1-4) How dare any so called Christian leader (Pastor John Hagee) tell another Christian not to “proselytize” (preach)! Any person that dies without salvation in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in Hell! Do you believe that? That applies to my own family, relatives and friends alike, whether they be Jewish or Gentile! The Jewish apostle Peter preached the word to the Jewish people the same way he preached the Gospel to everybody else! Peter did not have to answer to a Jewish C.U.F.I. (CEO- Chief Executive Officer) former leader by the name of David Brog, who is not a believer in Jesus Christ, because Peter answered to the Lord Jesus Christ himself! Listen to Peter’s words to the Jewish leaders of Israel:
Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:10-12)
Getting back to the claim by the former Senator Joe Lieberman that we have the same father, here is another quote from my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the creator of all things. (John 1:1-3) The words in the following passage are very appropriate, because Jesus Christ spoke these words to a group of Jewish people who claimed that God was their father, in spite of their rejection of him as Lord and Messiah!
I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. (John 8:38-45)
So there you have it. The Lord told that group of unbelieving Jews that God was not their father at all. He told them that IF God WERE their father, then they would love HIM! That means that former Senator Joe Lieberman and every other Jewish person, must LOVE Jesus Christ (Messiah), because God the father sent Christ to save them! Those are not the words of mere man, but that was spoken straight out of the mouth of Jesus Christ himself! In fact that same sweet, loving, merciful and gentle Jesus held nothing back and he even told the unbelieving Jews that they were of their father the devil! Stop right there for a moment. Those words were not the words of a raving lunatic, but they were uttered by the same one who redeemed me, and every other true Christian, with his precious blood! How could Senator Joe Lieberman make the claim to the crowd at the C.U.F.I. Summit, that he and they (Christians) had the very same father? If former Senator Joe Lieberman had the same father as the Christian, that would totally destroy the words which were spoken by the Lord Jesus Christ, and make him a liar! In fact, former Senator Joe Lieberman would certainly fit into the category described below, as one who does not BELIEVE the record (testimony) which was given by God concerning his Son Jesus Christ, and make God out to be a liar! Either you have eternal LIFE in the Son Jesus Christ or you don’t! It is as simple as that.
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that BELIEVETH NOT God hath made him a LIAR; because he believeth NOT the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath NOT the Son of God hath NOT life. (1 John 5:10-12)
At one of the C.U.F.I. (Christians United For Israel) events a few years ago the former U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman compared Pastor John Hagee to Moses, and the leader of a great multitude. If Senator Joe truly believed Moses, then he would have believed, and received, Jesus Christ, because Moses testified about his coming. Listen to what Jesus Christ told the Jewish people when he walked the earth
Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, EVEN MOSES, in WHOM YE TRUST. For had ye believed MOSES, ye would have BELIEVED ME: for HE WROTE OF ME. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? (John 5:45-47)
The Wicked Compromise With Roman Catholics
I believe that what we see taking place here at these C.U.F.I. meetings is none other than the wicked leaven of Herod (politics) and the Pharisees (religious spirits) that Jesus warned his own disciples about. (Mark 8:15) It does not only apply here to but to much of what has been happening in the “church world” especially in the past 150 years or so. This same wicked leaven was working at the old KATHRYN KUHLMAN healing meetings where you would often find ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIESTS AND NUNS right up there on the stage with KATHRYN. The false Gospel of Rome has not changed, but the leaven that Jesus warned us about has done a very good job at seducing souls. It was this same wicked leaven that was working when people such as CHARLES (CHUCK) COLSON and many other compromisers took their pens and signed that ECT (Evangelicals and Catholics Together) agreement back in 1994. The leaven of the false gospel of Rome has made tremendous inroads over the years most noticeable in the Billy Graham ministry. A well documented book by Dr Cathy Burns reveals that Billy Graham removed the warnings concerning Roman Catholicism from his own Crusade Edition of the Halley’s Bible Handbook.
“The original Halley’s up until the 22nd edition (1959), warned about the Jesuits. There are chapters about the Roman Papacy, and the Jesuits. According to Mrs Halley, Mr Halley spent years working on those chapters and never would have permitted the book to be changed. However when he died, Billy Graham bought the rights, and REMOVED all the research and warning about the JESUITS in the editions BILLY GRAHAM printed.” [Billy Graham And His Friends: A Hidden Agenda? By Dr Cathy Burns, page 440, Published By Sharing]
How can Billy Graham go from declaring Roman Catholicism to be one of the three greatest dangers in the world, to then using Roman Catholic lay people as altar workers (counselors) at his crusade meetings? It is actually quite simple. The warning from Jesus Christ regarding the wicked leaven was ignored, and Satan entered in full throttle! The false Gospel of Rome did not change, but Billy Graham did.
Billy Graham’s crusade in Cincinnati, Ohio, June 27-30, 2002, included full participation of the Roman Catholic Church. In preparation for the crusade, five Catholic parishes — Our Lady of Lourdes in Westwood, Our Lady of the Rosary in Greenhills, Our Lady of the Rosary and Guardian Angels in Cincinnati, and Trinity Center in Dayton — presented week-long courses to prepare Catholic counselors to deal with those who came forward in response to Graham’s invitations. According to Curtis Kneblik, assistant director of evangelization for the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Dayton, invitations were sent out to 9,000 Catholics to request their participation in this training, and hundreds responded. Priest Charles Bowes told his parish that the Graham mission was a “golden opportunity to evangelize Catholics and to help our parish…” (The Catholic Telegraph, May 10, 2002).
The Billy Graham organizational committee preparing for the November 2004 crusade in Los Angeles, California, promised the Roman Catholic archdiocese that Catholics will not be “proselytized.” A letter from Cardinal Roger Mahony, dated October 6, 2004, and posted at the archdiocese web site, stated: “When the Crusade was held in other locations, many Catholics responded to Dr. Graham’s message and came forward for Christ. Crusade officials expect the same for the Los Angeles area. These officials have assured me that, IN KEEPING WITH DR. GRAHAM’S BELIEF AND POLICY, THERE WILL BE NO PROSELYTIZING, AND THAT ANYONE IDENTIFYING HIM OR HERSELF AS CATHOLIC WILL BE REFERRED TO US for reintegration into the life of the Catholic Church. We must be ready to welcome them.”
Do you see how that wicked leaven is at work? There will be no “proselytizing” to the Roman Catholic people, which means that the Roman Catholic people will not be confronted with the differences between their false sacramental gospel, and their man-made traditions versus the true Biblical gospel. It is the same wicked leaven that was working at the C.U.F.I. meetings. It is the work of Satan himself, who hates the true Gospel of Jesus Christ because souls get saved! At the Billy Graham Crusades the Catholic people are being returned to their own Roman Catholic church! As a fairly new Christian I worked as counselor, along with my wife Cathy at the Billy Graham Crusade meeting in Central Park in 1991 New York City. We had to undergo the regular sessions to train as counselors at the Evangel church in Long Island City, in Queens N.Y. Cathy responded to a lady who raised her hand to make a decision, and helped her fill out the card, which sent her right back to her local Roman Catholic local church parish. We both repented afterwards and searched out the Billy Graham ministry and we found out that he has been compromising with Catholics for decades. We ignored the warning from a local Baptist Pastor in Queens who warned us about the Graham ministry, but our excuse was that we just want to see souls get saved. We also found out that the majority of Pastors (especially Charismatic/inter-denominational) are not the least bit interested when you bring these things up. The show must go on! It gets to the point where it is downright scary when you receive that blank stare back from them.
I was saved out of the Roman Catholic church, with it’s Mary worship, and it’s sacramental salvation, and here these guys are sending those poor souls right back into the darkness! I call that wicked, and I call that the activity of wolves. I was formerly a believer in the Marian apparitions at Medugorje, Yugoslavia until the Lord opened my eyes and showed me that it was from the pit of Hell! I thank God for his mercy, and his redeeming blood!
Roman Catholic actor Jim Caviezel was featured on the platform at the second night of the Billy Graham Los Angeles Crusade, which lasted from Nov. 18-21. Caviezel starred as “Jesus” in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. He says he prayed to St. Genesius of Arles and St. Anthony of Padua for help in his acting career. He has visited Medjugorje to witness the site where Mary allegedly appeared to six young people. Caviezel said, “This film is something that I believe was made by Mary for her Son.” Caviezel prayed the Rosary to Mary every day during the filming. Is it that Graham believes Caviezel’s gospel, or is it that Caviezel believes Graham’s gospel, or is it that the biblical truth that two must be agreed before they walk together is no longer in force today? What confusion and open disobedience!
Franklin Graham: Like Father, Like Son
FRANKLIN GRAHAM is continuing in his father’s footsteps. He told the Indianapolis Star that HIS FATHER’S ECUMENICAL ALLIANCE WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH and all other denominations
“WAS ONE OF THE SMARTEST THINGS HIS FATHER EVER DID” (“Keeping it simple, safe keeps Graham on high,” The Indianapolis Star, Thurs., June 3, 1999, p. H2).
“In the early years, up in Boston, the Catholic church got behind my father’s crusade. That was a first. It took back many Protestants. They didn’t know how to handle it. But it set the example. ‘If Billy Graham is willing to work with everybody, then maybe we should too’” (The Indianapolis Star, June 3, 1999). [excerpts From wayoflife.org]
Souls are being seduced by the millions and very few are raising a voice against it. The wicked leaven that Jesus warned us all about has been ignored, and the unsaved politicians, and religious leaders have entered inside without resistance. The Jewish apostle Paul, former persecutor and murderer of Christians was one faithful man of God, and he did not ignore the warning regarding this wicked leaven. Paul most certainly has the same spiritual father as every true born again believer in Jesus Christ.
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (Acts 20:24-31)
Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. (Galatians 5:7-9)
