The Foundation of Zionism and the Great Delusion of the End Times
First of all, to reject Zionism does not equate to antisemitism . Authentic Jews themselves reject Zionism because it conflicts with the Torah (Old Testament of our Bible).
Rejecting Zionism also does not reject the restoration of the Jews from a Christian perspective . It only rejects a false interpretation of prophecy foisted upon Christendom by the Jesuits and later popularized by Darbyism.
The 2004 General Synod of the Reformed Church in America stated “the ideology of Christian Zionism and the extreme form of dispensationalism that undergirds it to be a distortion of the biblical message noting the impediment it represents to achieving a just peace in Israel/Palestine.” Position on Christian Zionism”.

I have heard no one put it as succinctly as Robert David Steele with his quip "Jews good, Zionism bad". Some context and caveats might add a little clarity but he is essentially correct.
One must go back to the 16th century to find the foundation of the Christian Zionism popularized today. At that time, the reformers were pointing their collective finger at the Papacy and exposing it as the anti-Christ system we were warned about in prophecy.
“A Great Cloud of Witnesses:”Wycliffe, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, Cranmer, Bunyan, the translators of the King James Bible and the men who published the Westminster and Baptist confessions of Faith; Sir Isaac Newton, Wesley, Whitfield, Jonathan Edwards; and more recently Spurgeon, Bishop J.C. Ryle and Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones; these men among countless others, all saw the office of the Papacy as the antichrist. ” Taken from All Roads Lead to Rome, by Michael de Semlyen.

A Spanish Jesuit named Francisco Ribera was tasked with systematizing an eschatology called futurism to counter the claims of the reformers. It was rejected for over 300 hundred years by Protestant scholars but made inroads into Protestantism, primarily through John Nelson Darby. Today it is taught almost exclusively.
The counter-reformation deception of futurism is likely the only interpretation of prophecy you have heard of. It has almost completely supplanted the Protestant interpretation called historicism. I highly recommend you read this article which gives a more thorough treatment of the futurist deception. Here we will briefly concentrate on some of its effects.
Jesuit futurism has three devastating effects upon modern geopolitics.
1) It deprives the Jews of a correct understanding of Daniel 9:24-27, which conclusively proves through mathematical precision that Christ was exactly whom he claimed to be. Christ ratified Abraham’s covenant with is own blood, CONFIRMING it as the promised seed .
He came just as Daniel predicted, right on time, as the holy one they were to anoint. He caused the sacrifices and oblations to cease by his once and for all sacrifice . There would be a flood of Messianic Jews should this be understood properly and the landscape in Israel would radically change.
2) Instead of Christ confirming the covenant in Daniel 9:27, Ribera has the anti-Christ doing it in some far-flung future that “REQUIRES” a rebuilt Jewish temple. In other words, the false interpretation “REQUIRES” a false Israel, the propped up Zionist state, funded and empowered by the Vatican through their Rothschild bankers and political stooges.
The last 7 years of Daniels 490 year time prophecy was ripped from its context (with no Biblical support) and flung into our future. This is the rotting foundation for the Zionist state – a theological psyop, a ruse to protect the antiChrist system from exposure by the Reformers.
By deceiving the people into thinking the antiChrist is a single individual coming to a restored Jewish temple, the real antiChrist system escapes opposition in the present and carries on virtually unopposed.
3) The Vatican has a long history of using Court Jews and glorified capos to give the appearance that the Jews are the evil power in control. They forged the Protocols of Zion to implant that idea and as we could see with WW2, they have no problem inciting antisemitism. Read “ The Secret History of the Jesuits ” by Edmond Paris if you would like some background on that statement.
In keeping with their past escapades, today they employ Jews and the Zionist state itself as a sort of “sock puppet”. This strategy creates both a “scapegoat” and a mechanism for their nefarious deeds. The Jews take the blame and they escape justice – how convenient.
The Roman Curia has immense wealth and power. If you check how much property in Jerusalem is owned by Rome you will be shocked. Just like in Washington DC, their influence is pervasive. Mossad and the CIA make strange bedfellows considering the history of the people they are supposed to represent but there is a tie that binds.
Rabbinic Judaism has Babylonian occultism in common with Rome. Both are polluted by the same foul stream. What passes itself off as mainstream Christianity and Judaism today is far from biblical and not what God intended. Yet if one criticizes their occultism or political weaponization of religion, one is accused of antisemitism or of Catholic bashing. They have made themselves practically untouchable with legal and media strategies.
Here is a short article on the so-called Star of David on the flag of the Zionist state. It is actually the Star of Remphan and is associated with the occult. You will find it in Masonic lodges, Catholic cathedrals, dark occultism, and the Popes mitre.
Nevertheless, Israel can and will be restored as indicated in Romans 11: 12, 26. God has reserved for himself many who have not bent the knee to Baal, just as he did in days of old (1 Kings 19:18). The full participation of a restored and purified Israel is foretold. "All of Israel will be saved". They will number the 70 weeks of Daniel and realize that Messiah the Prince (Daniel 9:25) came right on time and confirmed the Abrahamic covenant with his own blood (Daniel 9:27). Then by faith, they will be joined back into the olive tree (Abrahamic covenant).
All of the deception and corruption has a source. One does not need to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem for the antichrist system to manifest. It is been here for centuries as Guinness and all of the great protestant scholars taught. We are NOT heading into its reign but into its final judgment and destruction.
He (Antichrist) co-exists not with a recognized Jewish nation, but with the rejection and dispersion of the Jews, and with a recognized professing Christian Church. His sphere is not Palestine, but Christendom; his throne is not Jerusalem, but Rome; his victims are not Jews, but Christians; his end and doom are brought about by that event which marks the commencement of the restoration of Israel to Gods favor the second advent of Christ; when Israel shall look on Him whom they pierced, and mourn because of Him, and when the times of the Gentiles shall be ended.
