John Hagee's False Teaching Exposed

John Hagee's False Teaching Exposed



Left: ?; Center: Benny Hinn; Right: John Hagee
John Hagee, senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas teaches false doctrine about salvation. Hagee denies that salvation is only through Jesus Christ. Hagee falsely claims that the Jews have another way of salvation (or covenant) and that Jesus Christ is not the Messiah (or Christ) of the Jews. 

(Contents: 
1. The Olive Tree of Promise and Salvation
2. Jesus Christ Does Claim to Be...the Messiah
3. The Old Testament Shows Jesus Christ Is the Messiah
4. Jesus Christ is Part of the Trinity of God and... )



This teaching contradicts the Bible which says Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation (for either Jews or Gentiles).

1 Timothy 2:5 says , "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" 
Acts 4:12 says, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." 
John 14:6 says ,"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

There are more scriptures that clearly show Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation for everyone (both to Jews and Gentiles).

Romans 1:16 says, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Note: Greek refers to Gentiles.) (Emphasis added.) 




1. The Olive Tree of Promise and Salvation




Romans 11 talks about an olive tree which is God's promised blessings to the Jews. Israel was promised a Messiah to save the Jews from their sin. The Holy Spirit, by Apostle Paul, writes to the saved Gentiles, telling them that they should not boast against the branches God cut out of the olive tree (which is God's covenant with Israel which includes Jesus Christ, the Messiah). 

Romans 11:17-19 (Emphasis added)
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

We Gentiles are grafted into this tree. We are now inheritors of the promises God made to Israel of Salvation through the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and of the blessings God gave Abraham. But, we have not replaced Israel. The Jews do not have a separate means of salvation.

Romans 11:19-24 
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

The Jews have a great inheritance if they will turn back to Jesus Christ and believe in Him and in the promises God gave to Abraham and to his descendants. God promised Abraham that "in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed." This promise is fulfilled by Jesus Christ, the Messiah. (See Genesis 22:18 and Acts 3.) Simon Peter in Acts chapter 3 told the Jews these words, by the leading of the Holy Spirit:

Acts 3:25-26 
25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Jesus Christ is the Savior of both Jews and Gentiles if only they will believe in Jesus Christ for salvation.



2. Jesus Christ Does Claim to Be the Son of God and the Messiah (Christ)



In John 9, Jesus Christ heals a man born blind and Jesus Christ says He is the Son of God. The pharisees saw that the man born blind glorified God for this healing miracle and believed Jesus was of God. So, they cast him out of the synagogue.



John 9:35-38 (Emphasis added)
35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?  
36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 
37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. 38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

Clearly, in this passage Jesus Christ makes the true claim that He is the Son of God. John Hagee denies that Jesus ever claimed to be the Messiah (the Christ) to the Jews. But, Jesus Christ does claim to be the Messiah (Christ) of the Jews and of the Gentiles.

Matthew 16:13-17  
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Did you read what Jesus said to Peter (a Jewish fisherman) after Peter said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."? Jesus said to him, "...Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven."

Jesus further said in John 12:32, "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." The next verse (John 12:33) says, "This he said, signifying what death he should die."

Jesus Christ died on a Roman cross, fulfilling that He would "be lifted up from the earth". Jesus said that He, "will draw all men unto me." Jesus claimed to be the Savior of "all men" (all mankind or humankind) and not just of the Gentiles, as Hagee falsely teaches.  

In John 10, Jesus talks more about His role as the Messiah, as the Savior.


John 10:9-11  
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.




3. The Old Testament Shows Jesus Christ Is the Messiah



Old Testament scriptures foretelling about Jesus as the Messiah (the Christ) show that Jesus Christ is the Messiah of the Jews, and not just the Gentiles. The New Testament confirms the Old Testament. Both are part of the Bible and should be read. Here are three (3) examples where Old Testament prophecy is fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament. (Note: There are many more examples that could be shown. See Appendix.)

 #1. Old Testament Prophecy: Born of a Virgin 
Isaiah 7:14 
 14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.  
 #1. New Testament Fulfillment 
Matthew 1:20-23
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

#2. Old Testament Prophecy: No Broken Bones, 
Parted Garments, Cast Lots for Vesture    

Psalm 22:17-18 (And all of Psalm 22)
17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 

#2. New Testament Fulfillment    
John 19:36
36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 

Matthew 27:35

35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.


#3. Old Testament Prophecy: Had Tomb of Rich Man
Isaiah 53:9 
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
#3. New Testament Fulfillment 
Matthew 27:57-60
57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed. 
(See Appendix for more.)


4. Jesus Christ is Part of the Trinity of God and He Loves You and Wants to Save You


There are many, many more prophecies that Jesus Christ fulfilled. (Please read the Appendix for more.) Jesus Christ, the son of David (or descendant of David), is also the Only Begotten Son of God. Jesus came to Earth both fully God and fully man. God the Father, God the Son (or the Word), and God the Holy Ghost (or Spirit) are the Trinity of God. These three are one. 


1 John 5:7 says, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

God the Father sent the Word, Jesus Christ, to Earth to save us from our sins. 


John 1:1-4
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.


God loves you and wants you to be saved from your sin so you can enter Heaven and enjoy fellowship with you. 

John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." 

Because God is Holy, He cannot allow sin in His Holy Presence in Heaven.


Psalm 1:5-6  
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. 

Psalm 9:17 
17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

Would you like to have a good relationship with God, be saved from sin, and enter Heaven? 



IF YOU ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD, please read this message.

God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins. (See John 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19), and believe and confess aloud that Christ has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.

Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).

John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

Jeremiah 29:13

13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

God Made an Everlasting Covenant with Israel. 10 Points Why the Jews Are Special to God





God Made an Everlasting Covenant with Israel: 10 Points Why The Jews Are Special to God

Psalms 122:6 - Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Zechariah 2:8 - For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

12 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.




3. Gods Gives Abraham a Covenant.


Genesis 15:18-21

18 In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,

20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,

21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.






4. God gives Isaac, Abraham's son, the Abrahamic covenant; Not Ishmael.


Genesis 17:18-20 (bold and underline added)

18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac:
and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.


5. God Confirms the Covenant with Isaac.

Genesis 26:1-8 (bold and underline added)

26:1 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.

2 And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:

3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

6 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:


6. God Confirms the Covenant with Jacob (Later named Israel).


Genesis 28:10-15 (bold and underline added)

10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

13 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

15 And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.

What the Bible Has to Say about False Teachers (False Prophets) (False Doctrine)


False teachers have been around since ancient times. They may sound good and say some correct things, but their deception is destructive and can be quite powerful. False teachers have certain characteristics which the Bible speaks of. Let us take a look at some of them.

_________________________________________________________


What the Bible Has to Say about False Teachers

1. False Teachers Scatter the Sheep of God’s Pasture

2. False Teachers Tolerate and Encourage Sin by Their Teaching

3. False Teachers Turn “the grace of our God into lasciviousness”

4. God is serious about repentance. 

_________________________________________________________


(1.) False Teachers Scatter the Sheep of God’s Pasture


Jeremiah 23:1-2 (bold added)

1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.

2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord.

False teachers scatter the sheep by bringing divisions in the Body of Christ: divisions which are contrary to the Word of God.

Romans 16:17-18

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Divisions are necessary when they are done according to the doctrine that the Bible teaches. Divisions which are “contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned” are against God’s will.


(2.) False Teachers (or False Prophets) Tolerate and Encourage Sin by Their Teaching


Jeremiah 23:13-14

13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.

14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

The prophet of God, Jeremiah saw abomination (wickedness) being done in Israel and Judah. False prophets were not telling people to repent from sin. Instead, they “strengthen also the hands of evildoers”. They were teaching people that God tolerates sin and that God will not judge sin.

Jeremiah 23:7 says, “They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.”

Many teachers today say that God just wants to bless you and give you whatever is in your heart. The Bible shows us this truth about the heart.

Jeremiah 17:9-10

9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.



Following your heart may sound good, but the “heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” and we cannot understand how wicked it really is. False teachers appeal to the heart’s desires. They sound good on the surface, but if you take time to seek God with all your heart and search the scriptures, God will reveal their true nature to you, by His Spirit.


Jude warns about false teachers in the Book of Jude:

Jude 1:3-5

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.


(3.) False Teachers Turn “the grace of our God into lasciviousness”


These false teachers are “turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness”. How are they doing that?

"The Word of the LORD to America": A Word from God on 8/17/14






"The Word of the LORD to America" (8/17/14)

(Note: God had me write this down (below). I tested this with the test of the spirits found in 1 John 4:1-4. These words in quotes are not my words, but God's. All glory be to God!)

________________

God said these exact words:

“America, you who have stoned the prophets, you who have rejected My counsel, you shall surely perish.

I have called out to you but you have only been rebellious and stiffnecked and you would not heed My commands.

I have called out to you and sought unto you but you would not seek Me. I have cried out to you but you would not cry unto Me. I have given you messengers but you have rejected them.

I shall surely destroy you and you shall perish. I am coming to judge you, America. Take heed and repent before it is too late.

I, the LORD your God, have spoken.”


________________



I encourage you to seek God and to turn to Him with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13
13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Repent from any sin God convicts you about.

Psalm 37:27
27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

Romans 6:16
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Is There any Hope in this Depressing World?



Is There any Hope in this Depressing World?



Yes. There is hope. That hope is only found in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity of God. He died a cruel death on a cross to save you from your sins and their consequence (which is Hell) so you could be able to enter Heaven.

God wants to have a close friendship with you because He loves you.

In John 3:16, Jesus said, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Because you (and I) have sin, we cannot enter Heaven (...we need Jesus). Heaven is perfect and sin would make Heaven corrupted just like a little poison in a glass of water makes it deadly.

Revelation 21:27 says, "And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life." 
(No sin will enter the Holy City of God, New Jerusalem.)

God knew this and sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for your sins so you could be saved from sin and have a close friendship with Him and go to Heaven.

Hell was made for the devil (Satan) and his fallen angels. Satan wants you to go to Hell with him.




What to Know and Do:

(1) If you believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins (Romans 10:9-10); 
(2) repent from your sins (Acts 3:19) (because holding onto sin is making sin your god instead of Jesus); 
and (3) make Jesus Christ your Savior and Lord (Luke 16:13) (which means making Him your God who you obey), you will be saved.


When you seek God with all your heart, you will find Him.

Jeremiah 29:13 says, "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart."






Abortion is an Abomination (abortion in the Bible)




Abortion is an Abomination

Abortion is a topic that can never go away and it must never go away while babies are being murdered. 

The Bible clearly teaches that "Thou shalt not kill" (Exodus 20:13). 

Jesus Christ affirmed this and made it stronger. In Matthew 19:18-19, Jesus Christ (God's Only Begotten Son) repeated the Ten Commandments:

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, 
19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Jesus never made it okay to break the Ten Commandments. He warned about what would happen to the person who "shall offend one of these little ones". 

Mark 9:42-44

42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

God is very serious about obedience and righteousness. We cannot be righteous without the blood of Jesus Christ covering our sins. And when we are saved from sin, we cannot expect to continue in sin and still love Jesus. We cannot serve two masters.

Luke 16:13 says, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

We cannot serve God and mammon (money or an object of worship or devotion). Serving mammon is serving oneself and killing an innocent baby is playing god and exalting oneself above God. This is rebellion and pride.


James 4:5-10

5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

God will reward those who humble themselves and repent and seek His will. God is not willing that any should perish.

2 Peter 3:9 says, "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
