After several years of promotion "the Bible Answer man" Hank hannengraff finally unveiled His book on Eschatology. In it we see Hannegraff build his case against dispensationalism. it should be noted that hannengraff does not spend a great deal of time attacking other eschatologies. Basically, there is a general dispensationalism verses everything else feeling that pervades this literature and others.
The Tim Lahaye scarecrow argument
Tim lahaye is not the inventer of the dispensational worldview. Nor is he the most scholarly authority on the subject. In Fact Lahaye was a christian counselor before his career with the left behind took off.
So Lahaye is a scarecrow argument in the sense that He, though capable of defending His views, is not the most savy of bible scholars for this task. also there are doctrines that Tim Lahaye would hold to that are not representative to all premillenialists or dispensationalists.
a. Lahaye holds to an ecumenical rapture. La haye holds that a great mass of people regardless of doctrine will be caught up in the rapture. He includes the Pope.
Now one could argue that we do not know a person's heart. But heading a religion which denies the gospel which is by grace through faith alone.
Galatians 1:7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Galatians 2:16Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
b. Lahaye teaches a 2nd chance rapture
What is the purpose of the rapture? Is it for the christians to escape the wrath of God?
If the rapture was only an escape by the first crop of christians why would their be a second crop?
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The whole point of the tribulation is to punish unbelievers. If they were new covenant saints then they wouldn't be in the tribulation. Why have the rapture at all if there is a way out?
hanks accusations against the rapture:
"Take for example our Lord's wordsin ohn 14:1-3: "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back, and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." According to the Tim Lahaye Prophecy Study Bible, this is 'the first teaching on the Rapture in Scripture."
Despite the fact that the majority of christians past and present, do not believe that the plain sense of this passage points to a pretribulational Rapture,"pg.16
14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
First thing is nottice the open deception in Hank's wording. La haye says this speeks to the rapture. Hank denies this speaks to a pre-trib rapture. But does it speak to the rapture?
"father's house" is an obvious reference to heaven. "come again, and recieve" indicates that this is after the second coming and that recieve means that christ will take believers with him to heaven in the endtimes.
It is obvious that this is talking about the rapture. Now even though it does not refer to it; it does imply this is before the great tribulation. Because in the second coming Christ is coming to rule upon the earth.That is the whole point of the second coming! He is already in heaven. It is time for Him to rule the earth!
Let's see where Hank claims to use literal interpretation.
34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Now Hank argues very dogmatically that pre-millenialist do not take the Bible literally since they do not share his interpretation of this verse. He believes this generation is referring to the generation that jesus was talking to.
Now in order to take hannengraffs interpretation we have to do what pretorists have done for a while and that is to not take the rest of scripture very literaly on the endtimes. Because Jesus did not come back in 72 ad. The world did not end nor was there judgement. So most evangelical pretorist inconsistently stop short and say they believe in the second coming. However you can take this verse literally alongside the rest of scripture if you will obey the context.
first of all jesus was speaking not only about the temples destruction but also the end of the world.
1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
So the subject matter includes the end of the world. It does in include the destruction of the temple as well but by the fact that it is a second question there is an implication that the 2 subjects are not necessarily linked
24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
24:14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
This is very obvious showing us a break in the conversation where the gospel of the kingdom needs to be spread world-wide.(which did not happen byt 72 ad!)Also "shall be saved" puts an end to the previous subject.
So everything after this is during the endtimes.
Another clue that this is a different generation from the apostles is the fact that the apostles would be killed.
matthew 24:9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
So the generation in discussion is the generation that suffers during the great tribulation.
matthew 24:21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
After all the apostles were supposed to be killed off. and what generation suffered more? The worldwar 2 generation experienced a holocaust of 6 millian jews 3 times as the destruction of 72 ad. Not to mention the fact that WWII witnessed 50 million deaths.
29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Once again Hank is not going to take this language literally. Yet when we see joshua's long day, or the plagues upon egypt suddenly we do take it literally. But honestly those who interpret the great tribulation as non-existent do not believe God capable of a miracle of this magnitude.
In fact hannengraaf ranks this verse as hyperbole. If predictive prophecy contains hyperbole then virtually anything can be considered predictive prophecy. Perhaps the final judgement is a hyperbole. Perhaps hell is not really that bad. Perhaps God won't judge all mankind. Once again Hank swings the door wide open for heresy.
The platonic/catholic roots of amillenialismWith the influence of Neo-Platonism and dualism, Clement of Alexandria and Origen denied premillennialism. Likewise, Dionysius of Alexandria argued that Revelation was not written by John and could not be interpreted literally; he was amillennial.
Amillennialism gained ground after Christianity became a legal religion. It was systematized by St. Augustine in the 4th century, and this systematization carried amillennialism over as the dominant eschatology of the Medieval and Reformation periods. Augustine was originally a premillennialist, but he retracted that view, claiming the doctrine was carnal.
ancient preterism"One of the earliest references to preterism comes from Eusebius of Caesarea (c. AD 263 – 339). In his 'Theophania' he states: “All authorities concur in the declaration that “when all these things should have been done” “The End” should come : that “the mystery of God should be finished as he had declared to His servants the prophets” : it should be completed : time should now be no more : the End of all things (so foretold) should be at hand, and be fully brought to pass : in these days should be fulfilled all that had been spoken of Christ (and of His church) by the prophets : or, in other words, when the gospel should have been preached in all the world for a testimony to all nations, and the power of the Holy People be scattered (abroad), then should the End come, then should all these things be finished. I need now only say, all these things have been done : the old and elementary system passed away with a great noise; all these predicted empires have actually fallen, and the new kingdom, the new heaven and earth, the new Jerusalem–all of which were to descend from God, to be formed by His power, have been realised on earth ; all these things have been done in the sight of all the nations ; God’s holy arm has been made bare in their sight: His judgments have prevailed, and they remain for an everlasting testimony to the whole world. His kingdom has come, as it was foretold it should, and His will has, so far, been done; His purposes have been finished; and, from that day to the extreme end of time, it will be the duty, as indeed it will be the great privilege of the Church, to gather into its bosom the Jew, the Greek, the Scythian, the Barbarian, bond and free; and to do this as the Apostles did in their days–in obedience, faith and hope.’ “ (Eusebius, Theophania)(wikipedia)
One thing we ought to remember is that Eusebius argued that the book of revelation should not be included in the canon of scripture. Now it is important to note that Eusibius is not arguing an amillenial interpretation, He is arguing that the New Heavens and earth have been realized in the Roman Catholic Empire.
"There has historically been general agreement with non-preterists that the first systematic preterist exposition of prophecy was written by the Jesuit Luis de Alcasar during the Counter Reformation. Moses Stuart noted that Alcasar's preterist interpretation was of considerable benefit to the Roman Catholic Church during its arguments with Protestants, and preterism has been described in modern eschatological commentary as a Catholic defense against the Protestant Historicist view which identified the Roman Catholic Church as a persecuting apostasy." (wikipedia)
This is also an important point. The whole gist of preterism was and is to get people away from the idea of the catholic church as fulfilling the prophecy about the great whore of Babyon. So this method of interpretation has deep political motivations.
"Due to resistance by Protestant Historicists, the preterist view was slow to gain acceptance outside the Roman Catholic Church. Among Protestants it was first accepted by Hugo Grotius, a Dutch Protestant eager to establish common ground between Protestants and the Roman Catholic Church. His first attempt to do this was entitled ‘Commentary on Certain Texts Which Deal with Antichrist’ (1640), in which he attempted to argue that the texts relating to Antichrist had their fulfillment in the 1st century AD. This was not well received by Protestants, but Grotius was undeterred and in his next work ‘Commentaries On The New Testament' (1641-1650), he expanded his preterist views to include the Olivet prophecy and Revelation." (wikipedia)
Hugo grotius is a theological minority in a reformed country. He is under threat of persecution, so he seeks to moderate doctrine between the catholics and protestants perhaps to gain favor with the catholics and even protection. This is not the only doctrine the gotius does this as can be seen by his governmental theory of the atonenment.
Historical?Hank defies the majority of scholars caliming an early date for revelation around 66 AD.
He then states that premillenialist are not taking history very seriously since they do not have jesus coming in the clouds as His return in 72 AD.
What are we supposed to do with the soon happening of end-times prophecy?
Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Now honestly I have two explanations for this passage which seems to work well with this issue besides ignoring the real message of revelation. First, The things which are taking place shortly may only be referring to the letters to the churches. Secondly, when we see the eschatological reality of Jesus "Coming in the clouds" we understand that the afterlife is frequently likened to sleep.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Sleep is a state which ignores the passage of time. For those in Heaven the second coming could experienced as immediate or soon. This will be an active existence. just not one combered by time.
Anti-semitism verses false antisemitism Hannengraaf claims that Dispensationalist are anti-semitic predicting a future Holocaust. But actually Dispensationalist believe this is part of the prophecy of the Great Tribulation. All peoples will be massacred. Not that any Christian is ever hinted to make this happen. But it will be done by enemies. To claim this as anti-semitic is to claim that Noah was genocidal for predicting the Flood.
In preterism the Great Whore of Babylon is interpretted as Jerusalem. So the jewish capital is the considered one of the greatest evils in the world!
But is this really the subject which John is most concentrated on?
More importantly if Jerusalem was the great whore of Babylon it should never be allowed to Resurrect ever again.
Revelation 18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Not only would this be an amazing historic hatred but the text promises an eternal end to Babylon. Therefore every movement for jews to restore jerusalem should be surpressed to fulfill this prophecy. We have seen this work it's way out historically with the oppression from the Catholics and muslims through the centuries to this day. So this is truly an antisemitic hermeneutic.
Babylon being a future judgement means this will be a future power that will be tyrannical over all the earth. Besides would jesus really want his followers to rejoice over jerusalem's demise?
matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
jesus loves jerusalem and will restore her. Which is evidence by not only His loving effection but the promise that they will say "blessed is he"
"The concept of a temporary earthly messianic kingdom at the Messiah's coming was not an invention of Christianity. Instead it was a theological interpretation developed within the apocalyptic literature of early Judaism"
"For the larger part, Christian eschatology through the 2nd and 3rd centuries was chiliastic. Many early Christian interpreters applied the earlier Jewish apocalyptic idea of a temporary Messianic kingdom to their interpretation of chapter 20 of John's apocalypse. Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, and Tertullian all made explicit references to the concept of a thousand year earthly kingdom at Christ’s coming."
"Irenaeus and Justin represent two of the most outspoken premillennialists of the pre-Nicean church. Other early premillennialists included Pseudo-Barnabas, Papias, Methodius, Lactantius, Commodianus Theophilus, Tertullian, Melito, Hippolytus of Rome, Victorinus of Pettau  and various Gnostics groups and the Montanists"
It should be noted by the way, that Irenaeus was the disciple of Polycarp, the disciple of John the Apostle. The Author of Revelation!
pre-millenialism was the dominant opinion of the early church. So who was the first to break with tradition?
"The first clear opponent of premillennialism associated with Christianity was Marcion. Marcion opposed the use of the Old Testament and most books of the New Testament that were not written by the apostle Paul. Regarding the Marcion and premillennialism, Harvard scholar H. Brown noted,
The first great heretic broke drastically with the faith of the early church in abandoning the doctrine of the imminent, personal return of Christ…Marcion did not believe in a real incarnation, and consequently there was no logical place in his system for a real Second Coming…Marcion expected the majority of mankind to be lost…he denied the validity of the Old Testament and its Law…As the first great heretic, Marcion developed and perfected his heterodox system before orthodoxy had fully defined itself…Marcion represents a movement that so radically transformed the Christian doctrine of God and Christ that it can hardly be said to be Christian."
Many of the early church leaders held to an ancient form of dispensationalism.
Of the Sabbath He speaketh in the beginning of the creation; And
God made the works of His hands in six days, and He ended on the
seventh day, and rested on it, and He hallowed it.
Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He
meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all
things to an end; for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years;
and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of
the Lord shall be as a thousand years. Therefore, children, in six
days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end.
And He rested on the seventh day. this He meaneth; when His Son
shall come, and shall abolish the time of the Lawless One, and shall
judge the ungodly, and shall change the sun and the moon and the
stars, then shall he truly rest on the seventh day." J.B. Lightfoot translation
earlier rapture"There exists at least one 18th century and two 19th century pre-tribulation references: in an essay published in 1788 in Philadelphia by the Baptist Morgan Edwards which articulated the concept of a pre-tribulation rapture,"
"The rise in belief in the pre-tribulation rapture is often wrongly attributed to a 15-year old Scottish-Irish girl named Margaret McDonald (a follower of Edward Irving), who in 1830 had a vision of the end times which describes a post-tribulation view of the rapture that was first published in 1840. It was published again in 1861, but two important passages demonstrating a post-tribulation view were removed to encourage confusion concerning the timing of the rapture. The two removed segments were, "This is the fiery trial which is to try us. - It will be for the purging and purifying of the real members of the body of Jesus" and "The trial of the Church is from Antichrist. It is by being filled with the Spirit that we shall be kept"."
jewish millenialism) Early on church fathers such as irenaeus and justin Martyr envisioned a jewish millenial kingdom in Israel. This contradicted the nature of the Roman empire. Not only because it denied Rome's temporal authority, But also due to the fact that placed Rome in a light of corruption.
By adopting a post-millenial perspective, the pope decided to war with the muslims and seize Israel. Also Israel has a great centralized location for the ancient world to have superior economic trade and government. Rome's failure to do this during the millenium was a curse upon it's spiritual claims of temporal authority and apostolic succession. it is not surprising that after this failure there was a genecide of bible believing christians know as the albigenses crusade.
literary liberalismHannengraff does not believe the Bible is to be taken literally. If you listen to His show he constantly complains about people who take the Bible in a "wooden literal fashion." look at his critique of Lahaye.
"'When the plain sense of scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense, but take every word at it's primary, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context clearly indicate otherwise.' Not only is there nothing distinctive about this definition, but it is so vagueas to be utterly useless. Plain sense to a first century Jew is clearly not plain sense to Tim Lahaye, And common sense to Tim Lahaye is clearly not common sense to those he dismisses as 'false Teachers.'" pg. 16 Apocalypse Code
This is sheer relativism. The idea that A jew can write a word in greek or hebrew and that though Tim Lahaye knows the meaning of the words he is still incapable of understanding the basic message of the author. It would be one thing if lahaye simply was ignorant of the meaning or that he had false motives to warp the meaning. But the idea that we are incapable of achieving communication or common sense is essntially post modern. It begs the question of whether the Bible could be understood at all, which is the path to liberalism.
Hanks views are very obviously leaning towards a mystic view of scripture.
"in fact we might well say that figurative language is the principle means by which God communicates spiritual realities to his children." pg.24
"Such language differs from literal language, in which words mean exactly what they say. Figurative language requires readers to use their imagination to comprehend what the author is driving at. Such imaginative leaps are the rule rather than the exception in that virtually every genre of literature contains metaphorical language." pg.23.
"This identification creates a meaning that lies beyond a wooden literal interpretation and thus requires an imaginative leap to grasp what is meant," pg.25
As oppose to understanding revelation as rational language we are to make the leap of faith in search of deeper meaning. Especially whenever we see the scriptures discuss anything resembling the end-times.
Quoting Gordon Fee "But most of the images of the apocalyptic belong to fantasy..."pg.33
"Finally, in apocalyptic passages, it is crucial to interpret fantasy imagery," pg.32
"Thus while fantasy images are unreal, they provide a realistic means to ponder reality." pg.33

This calssification of "apocalyptic literature insinuates that the Authors were producing fiction with their imaginations. This is not inspiration.
2 Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Inspiration by nature can not be mythology.
The Bible being the truth is not fiction. If God inspired the Bible with His Words he can not speak the truth in fiction. yes fiction may carry some truth. However many lies carry "some truth". For the Bible to be the true message of God it can not be a lie. Especially not the lie of a man. Because The Bible does not originate with man. it originates in the heavens with god.
Against hank's neo-nazi propaganda "the secret War against the Jews" by John Loftus and Mark Aarons.
1. There was no organized palestinian people before Israel.
Jack philby and lawrence of Arabia: this was a time were the arabs were a nomad tribal people. There was not any structured civilization with these people. Property was very relative as well.
Philby and Lawrence were special agents who organized saudi arabia So that they could take advantage of it's huge oil reserves.
They didn't want the jews giving any competition seeing that they were a literate people who would not be tricked as easily as the arabs.
"Jack Philby has become an obscure footnote to the history of the cold-war. But his legacy was far from minor. He is one of the lesser-known but most influential persons in modern history of the Middle East, the renegade British intelligence agent who plucked an obscure terrorist out of the desert and helped to make him king of Saudi Arabia. Ibn Saud was very much his creation." pg. 21
"Jack Philby later was paid by Western Oil companies to write pro-Arab propaganda disguised as history. Ibn Saud is remembered as a glorious Arab leader who unified Saudi Arabia and led the richest oil region in the world into partnership with the West." pg. 21
2. The Jews had owned the land and there was always a remnant of Jewish people residing in Israel.
"There have always been Jews living in Palestine. During Roman times they numbered in the millions, before they were dispersed by force around the Mediterranean basin. By the nineteenth century there were perhaps 50,000 left, principally in the holy city of Jerusalem, where they formed a slight majority from about 1800 onward. The Arabs called them 'the dead ones' and treated the execrably. Jews who wished to pray at they wailing wall were forced to enter through the dung gate of the old city, used for dumping human waste."Pg. 32
Hannengraf joins hands with the vatican, the nazis, and the muslims in refuse to recognize Israel as having rights to their own land.
The balfour declaration of 1917 which was made prior to the second World War was the only nation which would give in and allow the jewish people entrance. Britain owned the property and officially gave the jews permission to enter it.
3. the Jews militant behavior was excessive but understandable in the context of their new and hostile environment.
"In 1943 the Holocaust was in full operation, but in April of that year in Bermuda, a conference of British and American officials formally decided that nothing should be done about it. They "ruled out all plans for mass rescue." The British Foreign Office and the U.S. State department were both afraid that the Third Reich would be quite willing, indeed eager, to stop the gas chambers, empty the concentration camps, and let hundreds of thousands, if not millions. of Jewish survivors emigrate to freedom in the West. The Foreign Office "revealed in confidence" to the State department it's fear that Hitler might permit a mass exodus. If approaches to Germany to release jews were "pressed too much that is exactly what might happen.'"
"The bigoted reality behind the Secret Report of the Easter 1943 Bermuda conference was that not a single Allied Nation wanted to let the Jews settle in it's country. The unspoken consensus was that it was better to let Hitler handle them than to arrange a mass evacuation to the United States, England, or Canada. In short the Jews were expendato the war effort. Only after the war was it confirmed that a rescue operation to the Nazi concentration camps could have been succesful." pg. 49
The Jews were being annihilated off the face of the earth even after the Holocaust the persecution was contiinuous. There were many attacks on boats bringing the jews to palestine. Other countries were attacking jews at the same time. extreme situations during war time call for martial law. That is what was going on. these neighbors didn't mind the jews being attacked constantly so they shouldn't mind the jews going to extremes to protect themselves. many times nations will go extremes to protect themselves. Look at america's treatment of native americans.
4. Hanks appeal to christians affected by Israel is an appeal to bigotry.
What I mean is this. You should treat people equally because God is no respector of persons.
Hannengraff wants people to see Israel as anti-Christian and therefore jewish people as antichristian. Christians do not want to be seen as anti semitic. Yet the nazis claimed christianity as they persecuted Jews and the KKK and christian ID movement claimed Christianity as they bombed synagogues in the american south. Obviously Christians are not by nature anti semitic and neither is America. So in the same respect neither is Israel anti christian.
5. Israel has been steadily loosing and giving away their hard fought property since the 1970's why does hannengraff push for the jews to not have support and be defenseless to a world of antisemites? While Hank claims that dispensationalists for some odd reason waiting for another jewish holocaust Hank is pushing politically for that holocaust to becoming a reality. Recently Israel already gave up Jerusalem.
Archaeology has already proven that this was the land of the Jewish people. the jewish people needed a home land. After the 1967 six-day war Israel took over the land since the Arabs tried to destroy them. So why are they giving away land? Why should christians try to stop Israel? Hannengraaf is fixated with involvement helping the jews obtain their territory. But what about involvement trying to stop the jews?
Hank hannengraff has been obsessed with destroying the wooden literal meanining the apocalypse in search of some mystical nugget.
But his apocalypse code has spelled out doom for the Jewish people through out history. And for them this has proven no
Less to be the holocaust code.
