It is with a heavy heart, that I must turn to doing yet another special report. I do not like doing these. In fact, it would be better to say that I hate doing these, because I would only do them when there is sin and deception within the Body of Christ. And, there is nothing that gives me more grief.
Furthermore, we are required by God to reprove and rebuke those who sin while claiming leadership within the Body of Christ. (1Timothy 5:17-20)
So, it is with great sorrow, that I must call out Rick Wiles of Trunews.

SPECIAL REPORT: Rick Wiles, Deceiver
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/NRdKO4TrlFg
I truly detest the need to do this, but the danger to the Body of Christ compels me. And, the command of God propels me. God was speaking to us, when Paul wrote this to Timothy:
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
– 1 Timothy 5:17-20
Satan has convinced far too many to ignore this commandment, but I will not. The health and safety of the Body of Christ is too important. And that means that this ‘code of silence’ must end.
Please understand that hiding the sins of the elders is the way of Satan. It is an evil thing that has been used to corrupt the church, and it must stop. And, I will do everything that I can, when I can, to make this clear.
Of course, this also means that you must call ME out for rebuke, if I also sin. I have deserved reproof in the past, and I am sure that I will deserve reproof in the future. My failings are many, and I say ‘yes and amen’ to all who point them out.
Never trust me. Trust God only.
When I was abruptly brought face-to-face with reality, seven years ago, I devoted myself, full time, to the effort of bringing myself up-to-speed on what was happening. I had been asleep, and I needed to quickly get on the right track.
I don’t know when I stumbled over Rick Wiles, but it had to have been pretty early on. It’s hard to miss his presence, when you do research certain topics.
Well, from the moment that I discovered him, I spent a lot of time listening to Rick and even contributed to his ministry when I had the money to do so. But, over the course of time, I began to notice anti-Israel rhetoric creeping into his dialogue. I didn’t think too much about it, but I wrote him a few times to ask him to be careful.
I even wrote an article praising his ministry and encouraging people to support him. (I have since deleted that article.) But, then, on August 16th, 2014, I got an email from Rick, in which he said three things that shocked me.
Rick Wiles said that:
- He was anti-Zionism
- God doesn’t want their land
- Nothing has changed in 2000 years
Initially, I had thought that he was angry and upset at the time and just overly rash. But, I literally did everything that I could to get a clarification from him, and received nothing from him except for a terse response that basically said ‘go away’.
I left comments on his Facebook page, and saw them deleted. I asked staff members to intervene, and all that they could do was ask me to give him time. How ironic that the man who asked me to ‘give him time’, eventually couldn’t take it anymore, and left.
I really do not know what else I could have done to try and get Rick to open his eyes. I really don’t. If I had been in the US, I would have driven down to talk to him directly.
I’m glad that I was unable to do that, because it would have been a waste of time. Over the past three years, it has become extremely clear that Rick is a false prophet and a deceiver. I have heard reports from trusted sources, of those who have met and talked with Rick. I have heard his vitriolic pronouncements. I have seen him grow more angry and more prideful.
When I said the following, last week…
There are things happening, right now, that no one is talking about, that are insanely serious. And, many Christians are being distracted by false teachers who whisper interesting ideas, scratching their itching ears.
Even worse, there are those who teach rebellion against God. I was just reminded of this a few moments ago. People like Rick Wiles, Stephen Anderson and Kenneth Copeland are all leading their followers into rebellion against God. And, when their followers stand before God one day, they won’t be able to claim that they were tricked into their rebellion.
…many of you were surprised that I mentioned Rick Wiles, along with Stephen Anderson and Kenneth Copeland. Rick tends to keep his anti-Israel beliefs quiet because he knows that people will object to them.
Then, Kirt, in a spirit of peace and reconciliation reached out to me, asking for more detail. People like Kirt are truly wonderful, and I encourage everyone to follow his example. We should all seek peace and reconciliation. All of us.
Those who demonstrate such desires will always get my respect and admiration. After all, this is the kind of thing that marks us as true followers of Christ.
Unfortunately, there can be no ‘peace and reconciliation’ with heresy. Sometimes, you can just ignore it. Sometimes, you can just warn people to steer clear. But then, there are times when you need to dive head-first into an open rebuke.
Here was my response to Kirt’s excellent comment:
Preterism is heresy, plain and utterly simple.
Tearing out Revelation 20 will get you sent to Hell, according to Revelation 22:19.
Preaching rebellion against the work of God, according to the prophecies of God is completely insane.
You can see more of what I mean, here:
Rick Wiles is a dangerous false prophet. He’s dangerous because he has a lot of truth, but he mixes that truth with what Peter called ‘damnable heresies’. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you stop listening to Rick Wiles.
The Judgment of God is coming for Rick, and I hope that it will be in this life, so that he has the opportunity to repent of the terrible damage that he has done. But, if not, he faces an eternal judgment in the life to come.
I find myself in a very uncomfortable position. I am against the pretribbers, for the heresy of this false pretribulation rapture, but I am also against the vast majority of the post-tribbers who reject the prophecies of God, reject the work of God and distort our view of the Last Days. Worse, the post-tribbers are some of the most proud and mean-spirited people that you will ever see.
At least the pretribbers have a loving heart. Not all of them, but far more than the post-tribbers.
Rick’s pride, anger and extreme bitterness is just one more example of why we should stay away from him. And, his accusations against the Zionists are utterly wrong and false.
Please understand that God is a Zionist, and you can see more of that, here:
Rick Wiles would explode in outrage over that article. And did, when I expressed similar sentiments to him, personally.
The time for sound doctrine has come, Kirt. And, that means fleeing those who preach darkness.
When I wrote that response to Kirt’s comment, I had forgotten something that Rick had said on Greg Hunter’s show, USAWatchdog. You can find the write-up and YouTube video, here:
I tend to listen to Greg Hunter’s programs, pretty much every one of them. I often disagree with the points made on his show, but I heartily agree that Greg is an awesome person who is doing his best to warn people of what is coming. So, even though I had misgivings about what I would hear, I still listened to what Rick had to say on Greg’s show.
I’m afraid that my misgivings were well founded, and I reported my observations on October 13th, 2017, here:
My outrage was so great, that I retitled Greg Hunter’s write-up, as:
And, I left this comment, underneath:
On Sunday, I listened to this interview of Rick Wiles, and I was deeply saddened that Rick has not changed and repented of his great sins.
At best, Rick Wiles is a proud, arrogant rebel against God. And, I’ve been hearing reports about him for years, about those Christians who speak to him about his errors. His response has always been outrage, condemnation and to ostracize ANY who object to his heresy.
He believes, right now, that we are in the Millennium, that we rule and reign with Christ. He believes that it is our job to conquer the world for Christ. To be fair, he believes in doing it with the Gospel, which makes him less of a danger than the NAR people. But, he’s an ally of the NAR.
Unfortunately, believing that we are in the Millennium is a horrifying sin, since it tears out Revelation 20. And, God said that all who do that, will be taken out of the Book of Life. If you think that I’m wrong, read what Christ said, here:
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
– Revelation 22:18-19
This tells me that Rick is destined for eternal suffering. I hope that I am wrong, but God explicitly said that ripping out ANY PART of the book of Revelation will earn you a place outside of Heaven.
Rick is also a man of great pride. I’ve tangled with him in the past, and I came to him in brotherly love. When I was excoriated by him, I told him that he was in rebellion against God.
And, he is.
He stands against the prophecies that God will bring Israel back to Himself. He is against the prophecies of Israel returning to The Land. And, if you speak of these things to him, he will berate you.
I gave him financial support, when I couldn’t really afford it, and I am embarrassed that I did so.
My honest prayer, is that God will shut his mouth and stop his ministry. I pray that God will humble him, so that he will one day see God, as God truly is.
Rick is a heretic of the worst kind, since he beguiles people with his ‘pious’ words and appearance. But, he is a rebel, and he teaches rebellion.
God hates rebellion.
Rick Wiles did the one thing that no Christian should ever, EVER do:
Tear out chapters from the Book of Revelation
By claiming that we are in the Millennium, ruling and reigning with Christ, Rick has torn out Chapter 20 of Revelation. He has also defied and defiled the words of God. By doing this, he has caused himself to be taken out of the Book of Life.
Does this mean that he goes to Hell?
Well, this verse is pretty specific:
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
– Revelation 20:15
I am not the judge of who goes to Hell and who does not, but I am horrified at the choice that Rick Wiles has made. At best, he will have an eternity of regret, but it is more likely that his eternal suffering will be far more severe than mere ‘regret’.
If you want to put a label on Rick’s heresy, it’s this:
Wikipedia as this to say on it:
Preterism is a Christian eschatological view that interprets some (partial preterism) or all (full preterism) prophecies of the Bible as events which have already happened. This school of thought interprets the Book of Daniel as referring to events that happened in the 2nd century BC, while seeing the prophecies of Revelation as events that happened in the first century AD. Preterism holds that Ancient Israel finds its continuation or fulfillment in the Christian church at the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70.
Yes, I know that Wikipedia isn’t the best source, but that looks like a reasonable explanation of this damnable heresy. And yes, that is exactly what this is:
After all, the last verses of the Book of Revelation make that very, very clear.
Do a search, using your favorite search engine, if you wish to find out more.
Oh, and I just saw this link:
What is the preterist view of the end times?
YEOW! WHAT AN ABOMINATION!
Seriously, if you are a preterist, then you are in grave, grave danger. And, if you follow a preterist like Rick Wiles, then you are being led to your own destruction.
It has also come to my attention that Rick Wiles has issued prophecies, firmly claiming that the Holy Spirit spoke to him. Those prophecies turned out to be false, and that is the definition of what it means to be a false prophet. And, one of those prophecies was about 2010, and… well, I’ll quote his own words:
Last 3 months of 2010 will be brutal for America. The storm that will hit in the last 3 months of the year will not destroy America but it will stagger and stun the nation. There will be a great disruption in the nations commerce, communications, transportations and supply lines that will impact America for years. Tell my people to use the first 6 months of 2010 to prepare for the last 3 months. A year of bloodshed , violence, terror and fear
That prophecy did not occur. It was false. And, I had not known that he had issued such a false proclamation. Until now.
You can find the report on this false prophecy, here:
As far as I know, Rick has never acknowledged this grave error. And, the Bible speaks eloquently about how we should think about false prophets – especially, when they teach heresy.
Why I Am Doing This Now
Unfortunately, there is little that we can do, that we have not already done, to dissuade Rick from the path that he has chosen. I certainly have done everything that I can. But, if all the above was the extent of his spiritual failure, I would not be writing this.
So, why am I doing this now?
Well, at 3:06 a.m., Thursday morning, Taipei time, Dotty left this link in the comment section:
Before that ‘message’, I was merely upset at Rick’s heresy. But, what he said there, took me well past such a benign word as ‘upset’. This was the most foul and most evil of the lies that Rick has ever told in public, that I have ever heard him speak. This was the kind of lying that I had not thought Rick to be capable of. But, I was wrong. And, it wasn’t just one lie. It was a host of lies.
What I am going to do now is quote from the written part of Rick’s monologue, and point out each bitter and evil lie that he told. And, there are some real doozies.
Lie Number One
Here is the first set of lies:
The city of Jerusalem is often in news headlines. Most recently, President Trump gave an early Christmas present to American Christian Zionists when he said the US embassy would be relocated from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
American Christian Zionists were jubilant. Palestinian Christians were shocked. They expressed their dismay that America betrayed them.
This is definitely the first of his lies.
Palestinian Christians were dismayed?
Oh, he’s referring to the Catholic and Greek Orthodox ‘christians’ that have betrayed their own people and made common cause with their Muslim conquerors, the Palestinian Authority.
The real Christians among the Palestinians have either left for South America or kept very, very quiet. And, I know this personally.
So, let me tell you two personal stories.
In 2010, Mrs. Little and I were in Jerusalem, attending what we still consider to be our home church, in Jerusalem. Behind us, a man in the back stood up and asked if anyone had a place for a persecuted brother in Christ to stay. He motioned for the man in question to stand up.
He was bandaged and in crutches.
We’d had an extra room in our apartment in Jerusalem, so we quickly volunteered that extra room. It was only later that we found out what had happened to him.
I’ll call him, Bill – as I call anyone who needs to have their identity and gender kept secret. If you are a woman, I will still call you Bill.
Bill was a Palestinian from the Bethlehem area, with permission to work in Jerusalem. He had become a Christian, and had been witnessing to people in his village. They beat him up. The Palestinian Authority arrested him and tortured him for two straight weeks. And then, finally, they tried to kill him, and almost succeeded.
After his miraculous escape from the brink of death, he sought and received refuge in Jerusalem, but had no place to live. For the balance of our time in Jerusalem, Bill staid with us, until just before we left for Taiwan.
In 2012, we went back to Jerusalem, for a three month visit, and were sitting in the congregation, when the pastor of a Palestinian church in Jericho, stood up and asked forgiveness for preaching against Israel. I was so surprised, I did not have words to say.
A Palestinian pastor?
Apologizing for his antipathy towards Israel?
Apologizing in public?
Yes. That is exactly what he did.
But, don’t stop there, go to this eloquent illustration of Christian suffering among the Palestinians:
You will find this paragraph that says much about the situation:
Between the 1993 signing of the Oslo Accords until the 1995 transfer of Bethlehem to the PA, Palestinian Christians lobbied Israel against the transfer. The late Christian mayor, Elias Freij, warned that it would result in Bethlehem becoming a town with churches, but no Christians. He lobbied Israel to include Bethlehem in the boundaries of Greater Jerusalem, as was the Jordanian practice until 1967.
The prediction by Elias Freij has come to pass. Bethlehem truly is a town of church buildings without Christians. What few that are left are persecuted by the Palestinians and too poor to flee to the Palestinian Christian communities that have relocated to South America. But, that’s not the last of this.
Israel is the ONLY COUNTRY in the Middle East where the number of Christians is growing. Israel is a place where you are free to believe in Jesus Christ, and to share your belief with others. And yes, that even means standing on a corner in downtown Jerusalem, sharing the gospel with those who pass by.
I have seen this with my own eyes.
In fact, the number of Christians is growing so quickly, that the IDF – the Israel Defense Forces – has been doing their best to accommodate the growing number of Christians in their ranks. And, I’ve been hearing reports of high schools having to do the same.
So, I say to Rick Wiles, that it would not have taken very much time or effort to find all this out. But, you did not want to acknowledge this information. You chose this lie. You chose to believe it, even though the evidence was overwhelmingly to the contrary.
By this alone, Rick, you are a liar and a deceiver.
If that was the end of it, I would not be writing this SPECIAL REPORT. But, there’s more outrageous lying from Rick.
Lie Number Two
This one really boils my oil. The fact that Rick would dare to lie like this is beyond my capacity to stand:
Sadly, American Christian Zionists do not care about Palestinian Christians, nor do they care about Christians throughout the Middle East.
He said… WHAT?!
How DARE HE SAY THIS! HOW DARE HE!!!
For him to say this is an outrage beyond comprehension. It is foul and evil, and he proves himself to be a false-accuser and a liar. I do not know a single Christian Zionist who does not care about the Palestinian Christians or the Christians throughout the Middle East.
The fact that he would say such an evil lie… well …I am literally, at this moment, struggling for the right words to express how I feel. I have met countless Christians in Israel, and every single one of them has tremendous sympathy for Christians everywhere in the Middle East.
Every. Single. One.
Countless numbers of them – Zionists all – have gone out into Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and Iraq, to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. A personal friend, lost his life in Iraq doing that very same thing.
Should I introduce Rick to the legacy of Tony Simon?
Tony was a true man of God, an Israeli, and a Zionist. And, he was willing to suffer and die in Iraq, to seek and to save those who were lost. He gave his life, so that Muslims in Iraq would turn from their idolatry and follow Jesus.
Yet, Rick would have you believe that people like Tony weren’t giving their lives for Christ.
Rick, for the second time, I call you out as a liar and a false accuser of the foulest kind.
Lie Number Three And Four
Let me lump a couple of Rick’s awful lies into one:
They only care about the political state of Israel and the Jews who reject Jesus Christ as their Messiah. In the eyes of Christian Zionists, it doesn’t matter if Palestinian Christians are harmed in the pursuit of giving the Zionists more land. If the land is taken from Palestinian Christians to build new Jewish settlements, that’s their problem. The Zionist agenda must go on without interruption.
I’ll take lie four, first:
He dares to claim that Israel is stealing the land of the Palestinians.
You mean the fact that Israelis BUY the land with HARD CASH is the new definition of stealing?
That is a lie from the pits of Hell. And, in lie number three, Rick also claims that Christian Zionists care only for Israel.
Does Rick even bother to understand what the Christian Zionists believe?
We are Zionists because GOD IS A ZIONIST!!!
I wrote about that, here:
I will probably need to do a separate broadcast, with that article. There is so much scripture to back this up, I could go on for days. In fact, I actually assembled the scriptures about the future salvation of Israel, in this website:
THAT, all of THAT is the explanation for why GOD is a Zionist, and why we are as well. The passages that I assembled are all about the salvation of the children of Jacob. And, the body of work, written by the prophets through the inspiration of God, is testament to God’s desire to bring these rebellious children back to Himself.
I stand in doubt of ANYONE who can read all that is on that website – or in his Bible – and still believe that God does not intend to bring all Israel to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. But, don’t stop there, do this search:
THAT is the Zion is Zionism.
This lie – lie number three by Rick Wiles – demonstrates that he is deaf to the Holy Spirit. At best.
How can someone have the Holy Spirit and be so utterly wrong?
How can someone with the Holy Spirit lie like Rick has lied?
I do not want to believe that Rick is unsaved and without the Holy Spirit, but the evidence is too conclusive to ignore.
Rick, you have lied and brought false accusation against those who follow Christ.
Lies Five and Six
Here are two more lies. Rick writes:
I was saved in 1978. I can tell you that there was no….I mean absolutely no mention of Zionism in the churches I attended. Hyper-Christian Zionism became noticeable in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Today, it is out of control in many Protestant Evangelical churches in America. Sadly, the false doctrine is spreading into other nations as American missionaries take it abroad.
I’m afraid that I’m going to need to claim that his salvation in 1978 is probably a lie. I can’t be sure, and I’m not the person that he needs to convince. But, at the very least, he has corrupted his ‘salvation’. He claims to be a Christian, yet does not act like a Christian. But, if you wish to disagree with me on this, that’s okay.
Lie six is a bigger one. My church in the ’70s and ’80s was Zionist. I certainly was a Zionist, countless numbers of Christians were Zionist. My Dad was a Zionist.
In fact, Israel figured out very early that the Christians were Israel’s biggest support. Someone that I knew – who has since passed away – related a conversation that he had with Prime Minister Menachem Begin. He had asked the Prime Minister of Israel why he went to the Christians, first, every time he visited the US.
Christians are the ones who truly support us. (I paraphrased that one, since I do not remember the exact words.)
It was Christian support that made Israel possible. The Christians were what made Israel a reality. Without the Christians, there would be no Israel, and the Israelis knew it – and still know it.
This is yet another lie on the part of Rick. And, we aren’t done counting lies.
Rick, your lies condemn you. They are foul and evil, and you will answer for them for all eternity, unless you repent.
This next one is a whopper:
It is vitally important for you to know and understand that Zionism is a radical political movement to empower Jews to dominate the world.
Rick, that is such a stupid lie, I don’t know where to begin.
Israel’s purpose is to dominate the world?
That was the purpose?
That was beyond stupid. Anyone who listens to you, has got to be stupid, if you claim to believe something this ridiculous.
Rick, you are a liar, and… it seems like YOU WANT US to believe that you are a moron.
This next part isn’t a complete lie:
Theodore Herzl, the father of modern-day Israel, was a radical socialist revolutionary. He wasn’t seeking the God of Abraham. He sought the establishment of a political power base for Jewish socialism.
There are two parts to this lie. In the first part, he offers something that might be truth – in his claim that Herzl was a socialist. Although, it’s hard to say.
But, a radical?
Sorry, but I call foul on that one. Yes, there were socialists who rallied to his banner, and outposts of socialism sprouted all over the Land of Israel – at that time, called Palestine. But, even his claims about Herzl aren’t the real lie.
The real lie is in his claim that there was only one ‘father’ of modern Israel, and that it was necessary for Herzl to be a godly man.
Rick conveniently forgets that Ze’ev Jabotinsky was as much a ‘father’ of Israel, as anyone else. He also forgets that most of Israel descends from movements that were never a part of Herzl, or even Jabotinsky.
Most Israelis were thrown out of Arab countries and Russia. None of them were followers of Herzl or Jabotinsky.
Furthermore, the followers of Jabotinsky have soundly defeated the followers of Herzl. Those who claim that Israel is a product of the Rothschilds, aren’t paying attention.
The Likud Party is a direct descendant of those who followed Jabotinsky’s ideas. They defeated the Labour Party, the followers of Herzl and Rothschild. In fact, Labour’s defeat has been so huge, that they have disappeared. Yet, Rick isn’t interested in these facts.
He only wishes to see what he wants to see. We call that blindness and the love of falsehood. But, it’s more serious than that.
In the second part of this lie, Rick is claiming that the Return of Israel must be in righteousness. But, when you look at Ezekiel 36 and 37, you find the opposite. In those two chapters, you see that Israel is cleansed and made righteous AFTER THEY RETURN TO THE LAND!!!
This means that either Rick is blind to what the Bible actually says, or he is in direct rebellion against God. But, as much as I would like to believe the former, I must assume that he truly is in rebel. Rick isn’t that stupid.
His fierceness drips with rebellion against God, and this verse speaks directly to Rick’s rebellion:
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
– 1 Samuel 15:23
So, we can add the grave sin of rebellion, a sin as great as Satanism. And, we need to understand the seriousness. Witchcraft is Satanism, which means that Satanism is no worse than rebellion.
Of course, this makes sense. After all, Satan was the first rebel. And, it adds emphasis to the danger that you are in, should you rebel against the words of God.
This means, that if Rick Wiles came onto his show, gave an offering to an idol, and performed a ceremony of worship to Satan, it would be no worse than what he is doing here. The irony is that there actually might be some kind of witchcraft going on here. Just look at this evidence:
RICK WILES OF TRUNEWS, PROMOTES CATHOLICISM AND KENNETH COPELAND.
Rick Wiles of Trunews.com – A False Teacher
Does “Flowing Streams” mean “Converging Streams”??
I think of those three articles as evidence of a ‘christian’ version of witchcraft. Anyone who calls himself a Christian, and makes common cause with the Jesuits…
I’m sorry, but Rick Wiles can only be full of extreme spiritual darkness to do and say what he has done and said.
Rick, you are not only a liar, but a rebel against God.
With all the lies above, this next one seems meaningless, by comparison:
There are millions of Christian Zionists in America who do not know anything about Zionism. They have been indoctrinated with propaganda that contradicts the Bible.
How wrong, and what a lie.
Christian Zionists know everything that they need to know about Zionism. Yes, there might be some of them who have parts of the idea wrong, but they are so far ahead of Rick Wiles, that it’s impossible to measure.
You are lying, Rick, and you need to repent.
I am surprised at the number of ‘whoppers’ that Rick is telling, so here we are at number ten:
How many times per day do you hear Christian Zionists say, “The Bible says that whoever blesses Israel is blessed by God, and whoever curses Israel is cursed by God.”?
They say it multiple times on Christian television and radio. They say it every Sunday in many churches. They say it every day in social media platforms. It is a key phrase in their Zionist cult mantra.
The Christian Zionists wag their finger in your face as they admonish you to dare not criticize Zionism. “Bad, bad, bad! You’re going to be cursed if you say something critical of the Zionists. Don’t you want to be blessed? If yes, say only good things about the Zionists!”
Um… wait. Rick must be off his medication. I have been to a lot of churches. I have spoken with countless numbers of Christian Zionists. I have written and otherwise communicated with thousands upon thousands of them.
I rarely hear this from them.
Seriously, when was the last time you heard a Christian do and say what Rick is accusing them of?
In theory there might be some church, somewhere, that is like this, but you and I do not know what church that could be. And, even if we could find such a church, that hardly qualifies them for being a cult. And the rarity of what he claims to happen every day… is so obvious a lie, that I hardly even need to mention it.
Rick, you prove, for the tenth time, that you are a liar and a false accuser.
This one is stupid, since we not only have scripture, but history to back us up:
Where do they find that scripture? It does not exist in the Bible. Try to find it. Please show me the word by word verse that says all people in the world will have to bless the political state of Israel in the last days. Please show me the scripture!
Sorry Rick, but your attempt to use a qualifier doesn’t work there. Big mistake. In fact, it’s a lie.
Here’s the verse, since he obviously did not want to quote it until much later:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
– Genesis 12:3
Sorry Rick, but there’s no ‘time qualifier’ on that verse. Not a single one. And, history shows that every single nation and people that cursed the children of Jacob, were all cursed in return.
Look at all the empires that have persecuted the Jews. All of them have been destroyed, some without a trace. I could go on and on about this, but you can look this up, yourself.
The Jews really have been the ‘canary in the coal mine’ of history. You could always tell when your nation was going to fall, when they went after the Jews.
Rick, you are not only a liar, but you are ignorant of history.
(Why would ANYONE listen to someone like that?)
This is yet another foolish and evil lie, that also proves that he believes in a replacement theology:
If Apostle Paul were here today, he would ask American Christian Zionists, “O foolish Americans! Who has bewitched you?”
St. Paul wrote to the Galatians in Chapter 3:7-9
Know then that it is those of faith who are the sons of Abraham. 8 And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” 9 So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
Who are the true sons of Abraham? The true sons of Abraham are every man, woman, and child who is of faith. Faith in who? Faith in Jesus Christ as the Messiah.
When was the Gospel of the Kingdom first preached and to whom? Paul said God preached the gospel to Abraham. That’s right. All the prophets saw and foretold of the coming of the Messiah – our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They longed for the arrival of the heavenly city – New Jerusalem.
Oh Rick, who has bewitched you that you would ignore the words of God that are right in front of your eyes?
I am truly amazed that Rick would try to get his readers to ignore Romans 11. This is the kind of lie that is more about diverting your attention, so that you do not see the truth and will not look for it yourself.
Here are the key parts of Romans 11:
1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.
11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.
15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father’s sakes.
29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
– Romans 11
Israel, at this moment, lies in ignorance. But, THEY are STILL the NATURAL OLIVE BRANCHES! And, Rick compounds his lies by ‘boasting against the branches (v. 18).
How dare he be so foolish?
Is he insane?
Does he ever read the Book of Romans?
I am perplexed by his lies of omission and misdirection. I am perplexed by his ignorance of the Bible. It is becoming very, very clear to me that Rick does not know God.
Rick, you are a liar and have proven that you do not know Jesus.
I never thought that I would get this far, but here we are. So, here’s the next lie in this rather short article:
Whom did God say would be blessed? All the nations! Is the political state of Israel today blessing all the nations? No! The Church of God is blessing all the nations through the preaching of the glorious Gospel. It is the presence of God-fearing, Bible believing disciples of Jesus Christ in each nation that brings the blessings of God to those nations.
He mixes some truth in with this lie, so let’s acknowledge the truth:
God did say to Abraham that all nations would be blessed through his Seed.
So, I give Rick partial credit for this, but I must then take it away, since he twists this verse to his own deceitful ends.
The Christian Zionists know what it means, that all nations will be blessed. They understand that God was speaking about Jesus Christ, but Rick is trying to make you think that they do not know this. Sorry Rick, but that’s an old trick, and we are wise to your lies.
Using a bit of truth to cloak a lie, is the oldest trick in the book. And, he’s also using a ‘straw man reasoning’ – creating an easy-to-defeat argument that is fake. He knows that Zionist Christians understand the promise of Jesus Christ in God’s blessing of Abraham.
But, there is a another dimension to Rick’s lie.
Having lived and worked in Israel for 15 years, I know Israel from the ground up. I also know the blessing that Israel is to every country that makes peace with her, and is supportive of her.
Israel is a tiny country, but she makes a HUGE impact in the world. Without Israel, our oil supply would be threatened. Without Israel, we would not be communicating as easily as we communicate now. Without Israel, we would have no foothold in the Middle East, to help us neutralize the threat of Islam.
I could go on and on about how much of a blessing Israel has been to the world, but those who hate Israel are not interested in such arguments. So, I judge Rick to be guilty of lie thirteen.
Rick, you are deceitful and duplicitous. You truly are a liar of the worst kind.
I’m not even halfway through, and I’m already over six thousand words. And, I’m starting to feel like you already get it. But, I must continue:
So, let’s go back to the Christian Zionist cult mantra: “Whoever blesses Israel is blessed by God, and whoever curses Israel is cursed by God.”
Where do they get this doctrine that modern day Christians are obligated by God to say good things about the Jews in Israel if they want Heaven’s blesses in their lives?
That is exactly what the Christian Zionists teach. You will not be blessed by God if you do not stand politically with the Zionist state of Israel in the Middle East. You cannot question anything they do or you will be cursed by God.
I say that this lie is a simple one to explain:
It is a sin in the eyes of God to abuse the innocent.
Furthermore, the number of lies that are being told, about Israel, are so numerous and huge, that if we dare to add our voice, I say that we sin.
It’s like going to a teenager that has suffered horrifying sexual abuse, along with repeated blunt-force trauma, and vilifying her because she drives too fast.
There is no country in the world that has suffered so much abuse, with such ferocity, while being so kind and generous. Yes, Israelis are generally impolite and annoying. Yes, they make mistakes. But, there is no army in the world that is more moral than they. And, I am living proof.
I am as Christian and Gentile as you can get, yet they treated me with great kindness and warmth. They did the same to Mrs. Little – who fell in love with the place and wants to go back.
No country on Earth has shown more kindness to her enemies, than Israel. And yes, I know about how America rebuilt Germany and Japan. Sorry, but the US cannot hold a candle to how richly the Arabs and Palestinians have been blessed by Israel.
It is truly evil of Rick to heap abuse on an abused people. The fact that he dares to do this is completely and utterly outrageous. And, I will provide an answer to this outrage with a link to an article that I wrote last year:
The Truth About Israel
I am sickened that anyone would call themselves a Christian, while hurling lies and abuse at Israel. What I wrote in that article is the barest minimum. Rick is obscene to speak such evil against a country like Israel.
How dare he do this!
So, I say this:
Rick, you are both a liar and an abomination in the eyes of God.
Lies Fifteen, Sixteen, Seventeen and Eighteen
I’m lumping all these together, since they really only have one answer:
Does that mean I am forbidden by God from criticizing the horrible way the Israeli Jews treat my Palestinian Christian brothers and sisters in the Lord? Does that mean I will be curse by God if I criticize the CIA and Israeli Mossad for arming ISIS jihadists who killed thousands of Iraqi and Syrian Christians in the illegal war to destroy Syrian President Assad? Does it mean God will curse me if I criticize Tel Aviv Israel for boasting it is the homosexual capital of the world? Will God curse me if I say I don’t want my tax money in America paying for Israel’s wars against Muslims?
I have one answer to these accusations:
SHOW. ME. PROOF.
And yes, I have seen what anti-Semites like Rick use for ‘proof’. They are lies from top to bottom. And, it’s no wonder, since he keeps claiming that ‘Palestinian Brothers’ are telling him all this.
I know some of those ‘Palestinian Brothers’, and they aren’t Christians. Sorry Rick, but you’ve either been duped by lying liars, or knowingly participate in the lies that they weave.
I have seen how Israelis and the Israeli government treats Palestinian Christians – at least, those that are left. The Israelis treat them well. Very, very well.
The problem is that these fake christians are more than willing to lie for their Muslim overlords.
…and those wars against the Muslims?
It sounds like Rick Wiles is becoming not only a Catholic sympathizer, but a Muslim sympathizer. And, there is no proof that Israel is cooperating with the CIA in any way.
Mossad has NEVER trusted the CIA. NEVER. I’m sure that they will cooperate on an ad hoc basis, but trust? Don’t make me laugh.
Rick, you aren’t just a liar, but you are ridiculous in your lies.
Nineteen lies, and still going strong. It’s a rare thing to have to deal with such densely packed deceit. Now, part of this section repeats earlier lies, so I will address just the new one:
[Skipping a paragraph – no need for a repeat – JL]
Is this what the Bible teaches? Where do the Christian Zionists get this line they quote every day? Let’s repeat it the way they say it: “The bible says “I will bless those who bless Israel, and I will curse those who curse Israel.”
Genesis 12 – 1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
God spoke the promise to Abram. His name had not even been changed yet to Abraham. The promise was not made to modern day Israel. The promise was made to Abraham, the father of our faith.
I’m impressed that Rick chose to quote Genesis 12, but you’ll notice that he didn’t do that with his initial lie. He buried it lower in his monologue. But, I’ve already addressed Genesis 12.
But, Rick calls Abraham ‘father of our faith’?
Yes, Romans 4 refers to Abraham as a father to those of us who have faith in Christ. But, it does NOT say that Abraham is ‘The Father of our Faith’. Read Romans 4 for yourself, and see if I’m wrong on this:
I’m so upset over all the lies in this monologue, that I’m not ready to give Rick a pass on this one. Rick can have as much faith in Abraham as he wants. I have faith in God:
Rick, you don’t even know who the true father of our faith is.
I’m getting a bit tired here, and it’s getting close to 4 a.m. I’ve been at this, well into the night, and there is still much to do. And, Rick is repeating some of his older lies, but then…
Those other people are among all human races that have believed the Gospel, repented of their sins, and believed on the name of Jesus to save them. Israel was not replaced by the Church. Israel and the Church are one and the same. We non-Jews were grafted into the vine. Israel lives on through the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church of God.
Whoa… hold on there. He said ‘catholic’ and ‘apostolic’ in the same sentence. Please also remember these links:
I’m sorry, but I smell a rat. A big one. One with a big J stamped on it. And yes, I mean the Jesuits.
You know that I don’t go around calling people Jesuit-this or Jesuit-that. And, I’m not sure that I’m ready to call Rick a Jesuit. But, he might have been trained by Jesuits. And, we know that Jesuits have infiltrated every denomination and every seminary of any significance.
And, the fact that Rick has been waaaaay too friendly with the Catholics, is very telling.
Rick, I sense the Jesuit in you, and that is TRULY Satanic.
Lie Twenty One
Rick goes on a bit more about Abraham, and then ends with this last lie:
The next time a Christian Zionist says, “Whoever blesses Israel God shall bless, and whoever curses Israel God shall curse,” you smile and say, “Hallelujah! I am Israel. I am blessed by God. Everybody who blesses me is blessed by God and everybody who curses me is cursed by God.”
Don’t let the Zionists steal your identity in Christ. You are Israel. Thanks for watching Morning Manna. Please share it on social media.
Rick finishes with that ever-so-evil heresy of Replacement Theology. How sickening, I can hardly breathe.
With all that Paul taught about the evils of this foul heresy, Rick dares to pound this into us. How dare he claim that we have replaced Israel. How dare he do this.
This is a direct attack against God. It is an attack against the prophets. It is an attack against the Bible. It is an attack against the goodness and justice of God. It is rebellion most foul.
Rick, you are a liar, a heretic and an abomination in the eyes of God.
Lie Twenty Two
When I finished writing, as Friday morning was dawning over Taipei, I went to bed, hoping that I was done. But, I also knew that a man’s heart is often revealed by how he ‘goes off script’ in his remarks. So, I promised myself that I would review what Rick said, and compare it, word-for-word with his text. I had already heard his speech, but I had not done that last check.
Sure enough, he inserted yet another vile and evil claim.
He dared to equate Saudi Arabia, the most evil country on Earth, with Israel, one of the best. And, as one who has had 15 years of personal experience in Israel, I am shocked and grieved at this.
How dare Rick compare an evil country that kills and murders Christians with impunity… How dare he compare that country with Israel. How dare he equate Israel, where Christianity prospers, to a foul and evil country that will kill every Christian within her borders, if given half a chance.
How dare Rick do this!
What more evidence do we need, of the darkness in Rick’s heart?
Will the lies never cease?
Will there be no end to his pride and arrogance before the mighty hand of God?
Judgment is coming for the evil and wicked who feign themselves to be righteous. Judgment is coming for the wolves who devour the sheep. Judgment is coming for those who lift up themselves in pride and rebel against the one who made us.
Rick, the judgment of God is coming, and I fear for what will happen to you, when His wrath arrives in your life.
To those of you who believe that I have judged Rick Wiles harshly, allow me to clarify that many, many brothers and sisters in Christ have come to him privately. We have all asked him to turn away from his heresy.
Most have been incredibly gentle in their attempt to bring him back to Christ, but he has reviled each and every one. His anger and pride at our disagreement with him is incredible.
I hope and pray that God will draw him back to Himself – if he ever was a Christian. I do not wish that ANYONE would suffer for eternity, yet it seems that Rick Wiles is determined to walk this path that he has chosen.
So, I warn all of you to stay away from Rick. He will poison all who listen to him, if you give him the chance.
Never follow a Preterist. Never.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
