It's too bad these folks don't read their Bibles. Jesus says:
...about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. For as the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. (Matthew 24:35-37)That means that nobody, not even John Hagee, knows the hour of Jesus' return.
Bottom line: Jesus calls us to faithfully follow Him and leave the moment of His return to God. We cannot force the hand of God. Those who think they can force God to do anything demonstrate more faith in themselves than they do in the God we meet in Jesus Christ. They fail to respect the sovereignty of God and think that they can manipulate His actions by manipulating events on earth. Wrong!
Beyond all that, the equation of the modern Israeli state with historic Israel--which they make--is absurd.
Speaking for myself, I'm praying for an early, rapid end to the war in Lebanon.
