Second Coming: ‘I hope he comes tomorrow’

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/second_coming_i_hope_he_comes_tomorrow/

I’ve written before about the relationship between Christian Zionists and Jews. Two weeks ago, Max Blumenthal went to the Christians United for Israel conference in Washington. The video is embedded below. Here is a note someone sent me regarding the gist of the conference.

CUFI has an ulterior agenda: its support for Israel derives from the belief of Hagee and his flock that Jesus will return to Jerusalem after the battle of Armageddon and cleanse the earth of evil. In the end, all the non-believers - Jews, Muslims, Hindus, mainline Christians, etc. - must convert or suffer the torture of eternal damnation.

Over a dozen CUFI members eagerly revealed to me their excitement at the prospect of Armageddon occurring tomorrow. Among the rapture ready was Republican Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay. None of this seemed to matter to Lieberman, who delivered a long sermon hailing Hagee as nothing less than a modern-day Moses. Lieberman went on to describe Hagee’s flock as “even greater than the multitude Moses commanded.”
