John Hagee predicts more doom and gloom
Hello everyone! I hope you all don't mind me starting a topic on the well known John Hagee.
Last night as I retired to bed, I happened to come across his show where he spoke about Revelation 9:
13 Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. 17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. 18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths. 19 For their power[a] is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm.
According to John Hagee, this is a representation of China. He believes that the red and yellow represents their flag, as shown here:
I don't remember his connection with the color blue, but if I'm not mistaken, "Blue" is China's most popular color, or it had something to do with a uniform. I must apologize for my inability to recall the connection of China and Blue.
Lastly, he states that the fire breathing that comes from their mouths as indicated in the passage above represents the Chinese dragons used during ceremonies.
His basic prediction is that China is going to become the next world superpower, destroy the United States (after the Christians are Raptured), and they would team up with Iran to destroy Israel. But first, the president of Iran has to obtain at least 5 to 7 Nuclear bombs in order to destroy Israel, and the following US targets:
2. New York
3. Houston Tx
I don't remember the rest he mentioned.....again I apologize for not remembering all the details.
What does this all mean folks? You decide. I'd like to personally ask John why he feels that Israel is so important to China. Other than the fact that the entire world loves Israel for its history, but what possible economical importance would geographical Israel even serve China? Absolutely nothing! China is a growing economical economy. But it's military is still behind the technological curve. Even so, I'm quite confident that they have very little interest in trying to overtake Israel. And I doubt very seriously that their plans include joining with a self proclaimed terrorists who is basically nothing more than a big mouth trying to stir up trouble via media and propaganda....I'm referring to the President of Iran. Is he a problem? Well sure. But I'm certain you could find more trouble in our land when compared to Iran's President.
John Hagee shows his ignorance in that he's interpreting Revelation in a modern day fashion where the early church would have had absolutely NO IDEA what St. John was prophesying about. Not to mention that John Hagee shows an obvious error that he would not be able to explain. The "Trumpets" were not attacks on the world, but upon Apostate Israel which contained false Jews. The chosen Jews part of the 12 Tribes of Israel were sealed from this wrath. Not so with those who were not sealed. Those Tribes don't exist anymore, so how (or why) would Christ blow a trumpet of disaster upon a land with Tribes that no longer exist? This was obviously fulfilled in the first century WHEN THE TRIBES DID EXIST! Each Tribe showed a figurative number of 12,000 sealed; these would be spared from the coming woes, trumpets, and bowls of wrath, etc.
John Hagee needs to come to this forum and take some lessons because his interpretations remind me too much of Charles Manson.
Sound off Church!

Israel is more than just a race; it is more than just a nation; it is the people of God, from faith, by faith, and only faith. Those who assemble in the name of Christ Jesus, embrance Israel because they are Israel
