John Hagee Clarifies: Jesus is Messiah

Post image for John Hagee Clarifies: Jesus is Messiah

Not long ago many people came to the conclusion that John Hagee denied that Jesus was the Messiah in his book In Defense of Israel. I was one of those people. What drove my conclusion was reading parts of the book and listening to audio of Hagee. Despite our theological disagreements this alleged belief of his was very disconcerting. Especially, given the amount of people he reaches each week.

Hagee has now offered some clarification explaining that he does not deny Jesus is the Messiah. He published his response in the article A Special Message from Pastor John Hagee Regarding His Book In Defense of Israel. Though we still don’t agree on several points I’m glad he clarified. It is good to know that he is not denying the Gospel on this point by denying Jesus is the Messiah.

I don’t have time to interact right now. I want to offer a few quotes from the article that stood out to me though. Maybe some of you can give some of your own feedback.

I chose to use challenging language that I hoped would confront the body of Christ to consider events from the Jewish and historical perspective and therefore develop greater empathy for our Jewish friends.

Over the centuries, Christians have been quick to condemn the Jews for failing to recognize Jesus as Messiah. This approach led to replacement theology and the viewpoint of some that God has rejected and broken covenant with the Jewish people. These ideas, in turn, opened the door to a vicious Christian anti-Semitism that led to the Crusades, the Inquisition and countless pogroms.

Jesus came the first time as the suffering Messiah, as exemplified by His persecution, rejection and crucifixion. Jesus will come back as the reigning Messiah, who will rule the world from His throne in Jerusalem as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

The primary change will involve how I use the word “Messiah.” In the expanded version, I will clarify the clear distinction between the “Suffering Messiah,” the Lamb of God and the “Reigning Messiah,” the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!

I also hope that we can return our focus to what I had anticipated to highlight all along, the fact that we Christians must shift from condemning the Jews for what they missed to thanking them for what they gave.

What do you think? Remember grace!

For what it’s worth…

Mark

“Thanking them for what they gave.”

That should not at all be our focus , as Hagee says, sharing with them what they have missed must be our focus.

2 Mark Lamprecht August 13, 2009 at 4:12 pm

Matt, I agree. That is along the line of why those things I quoted stood out to me.

3 sdansmith August 13, 2009 at 5:28 pm

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I agree with Hagee…not about what you all are discussing, but in general. Of course, speaking in broad generalities is dangerous, but I do think that many believers talk down to Judaism. Surely most would rather ignore the Old Testament than research it, even though our giants of the faith (Paul, Peter, etc) used scripture from that testament.

Christianity, at least according to what I’ve been taught so far, was originally an extension and fulfillment of Judiasm, not a replacement. Because of what we’ve done, especially in American Christianity, I think we did need the confrontation.

Don’t get me wrong…lots to be concerned about with Hagee, but I don’t think he was as far off on some of this as we might think.

4 Mark Lamprecht August 13, 2009 at 5:38 pm

sdan, I might understand what you’re getting at. But just think for a moment. Think about what Hagee has written and then about what the Apostles did and said in the New Testament.

Without getting into an eschatological debate, my guess is that Hagee might take issue with what you’ve said that Christianity was an extension and fulfillment of Judiasm. From what I’ve seen even when someone who is charged with replacement theology offers extension, fulfillment or expansion it’s still a no go.

5 sdansmith August 13, 2009 at 5:56 pm

By the way, please call me Dan. sdan makes me think of my first name, which is of course why I go by my middle name! haha.

Anyway, like I said, I couldn’t believe I was agreeing with him, and I assure you that I don’t agree with most of what he says. I was just taking this in the context it was given. I don’t even know how you feel about the Christianity being an extension of Judaism, so I’m not sure if I can or should have mentioned it, but you’re probably right about Hagee. Anyway, I loved the post because it really made me think…which is maybe the only thing he did right. Who knows?

6 Todd Lambert August 14, 2009 at 1:55 pm

I disagree. Jesus is born in the line of King David. Matthew 1. born King of the Jews. Matt2. the King cometh Matthew 21:5; , He is the King of Israel. John 1:49. the whole Palm Sunday, Trial, Pilate interview, cross inscription, we have no king but Caesar, and the epistles are replete with this message. It is precisely the suffering of Jesus that displays that He is King, it is precisely His death, that proves He is anointed of God. He is “the prophet” Moses spoke of. David is King and he suffered in Caves. Joseph is leader and he suffered from his brothers. Jesus reigned on the cross, He went willingly. He laid down His life. Why try to confuse the idea that suffering is not reigning, as to think there is a time when Jesus (fully God) does not reign. Jesus is God, and they rejected God as King, just as they rejected God as in King in 1 Samuel 8:7

7 Mark Lamprecht August 14, 2009 at 2:57 pm

Todd, exactly!

I’m not sure why so many miss this.

Thanks for the comment.

I posted some blog articles regarding this issue.
The first blog was, The Hagee Heresy: Jesus Was Not The Messiah For The Jews
http://alwaysreformingtoscripture.blogspot.com/2007/11/hagee-heresy-jesus-was-not-messiah-for.html

Before I posted this article, I tried to get a reply (phone and email) from Hagee’s ministry concerning this issue and I never received a response or clarification.

I wrote another blog article, The Hagee Puzzle. http://alwaysreformingtoscripture.blogspot.com/2007/12/hagee-puzzle.html

Mark, after reading your article, I realize I need to write a follow up article on Hagee’s revised chapter. What is interesting is that he took out all of the controversial statements but never explained his first edition statements. There are still some questions I have regarding Hagee’s views.
I am concerned with what Pastor Hagee believes about Jewish salvation. What does he believe about the salvation of Jewish persons who reject Jesus as the Messiah and die with that view? Does he believe that a Jewish person must believe Jesus as the Son of God, God incarnate and Messiah–before they die?

I will get the revised book out and work on a follow up.

9 Mark Lamprecht August 19, 2009 at 1:33 pm

Kendall,

Thanks for the links. It has been very hard to nail exactly what Hagee believes about the salvation of Jewish persons who reject Jesus as the Messiah.

If you find any clear statements please let me know.

10 Jeremy Boyce November 8, 2010 at 1:16 pm

I believe this is a symptom of the dispensational futurism that characterizes so many of the visible Christian ministries today. And as Hagee epitomizes the more extreme of those views, I am reminded of what Jesus said in stark contrast to the approach that many take in favoring Israel :

“Ye shall be hated of all men for MY NAME’S SAKE” (Emphasis mine)

Isaiah 66:5 speaks of the BRETHREN being cast out for His name’s sake. In other words, those that were to receive Christ as Messiah – to honor God and His Word – were to be cast out by the rest of Israel (who would ultimately be given over to unbelief). He (that is Christ) shall appear to YOUR (that is, believing Israel) joy and THEY (that is, unbelieving Israel) shall be ashamed.

Those that defend the nation Israel because of their identification with Israel of old are missing the fact that there is no respecter of persons with God. Israel is certainly hated by many, but not for Jesus’ sake. Has God cast them off? No! But as Paul said, we should cast out the bondwoman with her son, for the son of the bondwoman WILL NOT be heir with the son of the free (Galatians 4:30 but see vv22-31 for the fuller understanding).

Between prophecy, Christ’s words to, and ministry among, Israel and Paul’s teaching in Romans and Galatians, how can anyone glory in a stiff-necked people continuing to reject their Messiah? Anything that Israel gave the Gentiles came from God alone. Their judgment is the more fearsome (if they do not repent) because of what God has done through them. With Paul, we should the more be praying FOR them (Romans 10:1) rather than siding WITH them (2 Corinthians 6:14).

Israel’s unbelief is to be mourned, not ignored.

11 Jeremy Boyce November 8, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Let me add this : the main impetus behind my post is NOT the unbelief of the Jews, but the John Hagees of the world who are complicit in aiding and encouraging unbelief. I make no judmgent of Hagee’s sincerity and trust he is doing what HE thinks is right. But the disservice this sort of thing does is immense. It muddies the waters in EXACTLY the place where they should be clearer than anything :

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ : for it is the power of God unto salvation to EVERYONE THAT BELIEVETH ; TO THE JEW FIRST, and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16

Hagee, and others like him (inadvertently, I hope) totally undermine this order. And by introducing what amounts to respect of persons into the gospel, the full weight of the ugliness of man’s unrighteousness (EVERY mortal man’s unrighteousness) is diluted because there is apparently an exception. God must have one or two PC “bones in His body” (so to speak). We can’t offend the unbelieving Jews with the gospel! That would be wrong! I think I may have some understanding of the vehemence with which Luther condemned the Jews. I haven’t read all his comments, but if it is true that his attitude towards them became more negative with age and exposure, I can only surmise that it was their unbelief that got him so exasperated. Thank God that He is more patient and longsuffering than Mr. Luther (for ALL our sakes), but it is that unbelief that is so destructive that makes countering beliefs like these (that Hagee appears to espouse) so critical. As much as I don’t like (or agree with) dispensationalism, it’s this treatment of Israel that is the crux of the matter. Tolerance of persistent unbelief is a serious problem – regardless of who perpetuates it.

12 Mark November 8, 2010 at 11:25 pm

Jeremy,

I think I agree with you. And whatever theological motivations Hagee has the main problem is his seemingly lack of push to share the gospel with unbelieving Jews. if memory serves me correctly, I believe he is involved in some sort of annual Christians and Jews together celebration. I’d have to look it up though.

13 Dr. Michael D. Evans April 21, 2011 at 9:19 pm

If Jesus was not recognized before by the Jews as the Messiah, it would be understandable. He was a man then. It takes time and proof for people to believe. If it happened today, then, the same would have happened.

14 Mark April 21, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Dr. Evans, I’m confused by your comment. Jesus was a Man and He was God while He walked the earth. It takes the gospel be presented with the power of the Holy Spirit for people to believe.

Thanks for stopping by.

15 cliff williams May 31, 2011 at 10:12 am

I very much appreciate a thoughtful dialogue that eventually works its way into a productively useful one as well. Jeremy’s disservice assessment in the above post rings a familiar tone with me. Although this is certainly nothin’ new but it seems of late that “organized” religion is getting … “tooooo organized”. Just considering our Christian Church here in America, we must account for it … “a-thousand-ways-to-Sunday”. I have attended many different denominational gatherings and find that the Hatfields seem to “hang” at the Church of Christ, while the McCoy’s prefer the Second Baptist Church. The feudin’ between these two movements alone is quite clear-cut and defined. They disagree on many rather technical Biblical translations, and just how they are to be interpreted to guide personal behavior, as well as the logistics of the entire respective Church group. This problem tends to expand and proliferate exponentially as this “groupism” grows into certain “chosen-people” over certain “others” … that are apparently … NOT … so chosen. This may seem a bit to “new-age-ish”, but it seems to me these complications could be tweaked down a notch-er-two, by considering that EVERY SINGLE SOUL is what is important here. The shell of the Human Body or the Group, or the Tribe, or the WHATEVER should not even show up on the proverbial “radar-screen”. The Fiber of our BEING, which is likely the conduit of our Soul, should be front-and-center … period. Isn’t our Soul much MORE critically connected to eternity than … this or that … group ??? Such hierarchies give rise to the WORLDLY bureaucracies that seem to disservice the SOUL SAVING PRIORITIES, while feeding the EGOS of the BIG DAWGS while fueling the discontent and resentment of the underlings and their ability to faithfully and confidently connect onto the grace of GOD … thru all this … murk. Surely GOD will explain the reasoning behind this “conundrumy” arrangement when eternity is made clear … WOW !!! COME-ON-WITH-IT !!!

16 Jeremy Boyce May 31, 2011 at 11:27 am

I’m a little taken aback by the comment, too. Instead of starting to believe, the Jews were only hardened in their unbelief after Christ left this earth.

“And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?”
Luke 23:27-31

But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.”
Acts 13:45-47

This was said of a people that had the benefit of hundreds of years of the direct dealings and promises of God BEFORE Christ appeared. Time, I think it is safe to say, does not produce belief.

17 Karen September 14, 2011 at 8:07 am

Well, it wasn’t it Jesus who condemned those unbelieving, (Pharasees and scribes)Jews THEN?…”wicked and perverse generation” …In Matthew 23 “Ye serpents, ye offspring of vipers, how shall ye escape the judgement of hell?…that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous unto the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom ye slew between the sanctuary and alter…Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.” And he continues to say to the Pharasees and scribes, “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.” So, Jesus condemned the Jews who crucified and rejected Him, however it says that they will not see Him until they accept the Gospel and who He is. That goes for everyone. Those Jews today who do not believe Jesus was and is the Messiah, are condemned to hell pure and simple and that goes with anyone who rejects Jesus and what He did on the cross as their Savior, Son of God, Lamb of God. It was not a “replacement”…the first Christians WERE JEWS…God says he always has a remnant, so what came out of the first century were many Jews who were Believers and many Gentiles became Believers as well. Nothing was “replaced” and it continues today. There is only ONE BODY and ONE CHURCH and not TWO BRIDES. If Jews today still reject Christ, they are condemned to hell. If they believe, they will “see Him” and welcome anyone who proclaims the Gospel. They will individually be grafted back in as their ancestry were the original branches. This goes for anyone who believes, that they will be grafted into the vine (Christ).

18 Michael December 31, 2012 at 6:48 pm

We can get technical about it, and we are wrong. Jesus told the woman at the well who HE was to the Jews. It is clear that Hagee is of the enemy on other issues . Calling Hinn on his show, emphatically the Spearhead of CHRIST’s church!!!??? Glorifying Netanyahu as the New David – King of Israel ! His heart is in false doctrines , the glory of Mans church, and offering The Sons of Abraham a free pass. I am sorry but it is not his or ours to offer.! We must approach Yahweh, Jesus and the Holy Spirit with complete reverence ! No pride , no self intellect even in our supposed understanding of HIS Holy Word. How dare we , how dare Hagee. This subtle acceptance of false doctrine is the Harlot. She comes inviting , offering “HIS ” Holy Word in a way you in the flesh like it. NO , NO , absolutely NO! Hang on the Cross next to Christ, accept HIM as ALL GOD provides for you . He is everything , the reason you exist , period! We will stumble for we always seek Wisdom . Like Solomon we fail for we don’t follow Our Lords teachings. We can say Jesus all day long and not be of HIS People for we seek to glorify our own understanding of HIS Word , not The Purity and Holiness of HIS Word. Blasphemers, one and all . Than we wonder why Bowls of wrath ( Tsunami in a land of 1000 false gods, Divine wind on a city which practices witchcraft , The Breath of GOD’s judgement in Sandy just as Satans Moon was full on HollowScheme, and lastly Rachel weeping as A Child , still innocent by GOD’s law Kills Little ones in CT just as our Children prepare santa claus for false worship. Shame on this once blessed society , our squandering’s are no longer acceptable. HIS judgement and hopefully only chastisement is a righteous and Holy reality upon us. Yield all ye sinners and saints , and come the LORD in Holiness , as our Savior Jesus , or don’t come at all , for HE will spit you out!,!! Reverence , fear of HIS Holiness , and guilty! Not pride and self intellect!!! The false prophets are abound preparing the way for there god Satan! Carefull Oh Loved ones , Carefull!

19 ephall63 June 21, 2013 at 10:12 pm

So what does Haggee really believe?  In the one breath he says that the Jews have a covenant with God..i.e. the Mosaic covenant of law, and therefore don’t need the ‘new covenant’…  So its a waste of time trying to evangelize the Jews. 
Then he says that Jesus didn’t say he was God, yet there a at least four places in the Gospels where He did. 
Now to turn around and say he was just using challenging language, is stupid.  
So lets look at what he does. Has he ever gone to Israel to tell the Jews that they need to accept Jesus Christ as their messiah, that they need to repent of their sins and be baptized into the wonderful Name of Jesus for the remission of sins. Also does he fearlessly preach to the Jews that Jesus is God. That He is the second person of the Trinity.  NO!!!!… he has already given an undertaking to the Jewish authorities in Jerusalem that he would never do that.
After all Haggee is very zealous in demanding that Pentecostal pastors invite the local rabbi to stand in their pulpits and teach the people what they the Jews believe.

20 Jayscottw August 16, 2013 at 11:27 pm

Let me begin by saying that I used to enjoy watching John Hagee’s sermons on TV. For many years that I occasionally watched him preach, I was motivated, encouraged and convicted and I couldn’t see anything wrong, misrepresented or un-Biblical. I come from a 55 year lifetime of Bible study, Christian schools and a fundamental Bible college education. It wasn’t until I saw him on the same stage with the likes of Benny Hinn, Ron Parsley etc. that I began to question if I was wrong about him. I thought I knew what he believed based on what he taught. Now I feel that he’s falling into the “be all things to all people” crowd and trying to use catchy marketing gimmics and parsing words to gain more notoriety. The bottom line: it is very sad and somewhat disheartening when men you have respected in the past let you down, but I don’t need any man to confirm or explain to me who Jesus was and why He came over 2,000 years ago, or why He’s coming again. The Bible is clear. Jesus said in His own words who He was and why He came to earth through the virgin birth. Yes, the Jews were expecting a Messiah. They wanted a strong political leader, a warrior king to lead them out of the bondage of Rome. For the most part, they were not looking for a Savior for the atonement of their sins. They were not looking for the meek sacrificial lamb without blemish or spot. In that sense, Jesus didn’t come to be “that” Messiah that would lead them from bondage to Rome. Eventually as we all know, He will be not only the King of the Jews, but the King of the whole earth and will set up his kingdom in Jerusalem to rule. The first time He came as the lamb to redeem us back to God, the second time He will reign over all the earth as the Lion of the tribe of Judah. It serves no real purpose to sensationalize and split hairs over a point that I think may be purposely confusing and misleading to many people. Jesus came to seek and to save those which were lost – that is the message. He and only He is the way, the truth and the life, and no man will come to the Father but through Him – not by work of righteousness which we have done, but through His mercy he saved us. Jew or Gentile, the message is the same.

21 Michael Vincent February 17, 2014 at 4:27 pm

Blah, blah, blah. . A very well coined response. What was said was said, using intellect to deny what was said is dangerous beloved. Stop being fooled by the intellectual who claim CHRIST with their lips . Christ is God, he offers all the Father offers to all man period. Empathy should be given to the Islamics as well as the Jews, by His holy words, not mans . Hagee is a Texan capitalist and war mongre who belongs in the capital, not the pulpit.

How is it that Hagee goes on Benny Hinn’s show, openly states that this false, miracle worker is the “head of the spear”, the head of the church! Can Hagee explain this????? He is a charlatan, and they both stand to face hellfire for the gross irresponsibility of the pulpit wich now reaches the globe ,this is very “serious” . Not smart, not charismatic, not a stage show.
Serious is this high,high “standard”of the Truly Annointed. Wake up people and search The Lord in the Spirit of Truth, not the spirit of error. Satan owns the air and is the first man of religion. Original sin is religion. Opposing GOD, His will, His truth, His holiness, not ours!!! We do not create. and the wise will be fools and the meek made wise, many will prophesy they did great works and miracles in the Holy name of Christ, and He will say He knew you not, workers of iniquity! The Bible commands us to get out of her, for she is the harlot. Fellowship in truth, but do not expect the false representatives, and church bodies to provide you with living water. It can be 95% percent sound doctrine, and 5% spiritual arsenic,and that is enough to lead the very elect to perdition. Christ came to witness Truth, He will judge us by truth, not deeds or congregationism.

Seek GOD in GOD, not GOD in man unless that person is Jesus, period. America is by it’s very nature a perfect example of apostasy, false churches, the spirit of error and ultimately the Abomination of Desolation. The Word of God is Holy! He creates by His word through creation of form in Himself , that is Jesus Christ. Any smart maneuvering , or manipulation ,however addressed and re-formulated to appease the masses is just that, smart maneuvering of what is the holy truth of GOD! It is invalid and Hagee seeks only to glorify self. Be aware of the False prophet, it would be wise to say this false minister and his chronies will come from our once blessed land, America . Be alert beloved, be alert and seek the truth in Jesus at the cross in the prescense of holiness.This is why He, Jesus shows us the difficult, persecuted, humble lives of the Apostles and early elect.The truly elect at the end will be persecuted by the false church itself. Seek the Spirit of Truth, this can not be stated enough. Find The Lord in the Spirit of Truth, please beloved. I pray.
Amen

I am one who has participated in what some might call Christian Zionism, here and in Israel. For me, and those I know, it means that we support the Hand of God fulfilling His covenant promise to restore the Jews to the Land and their right to have a sovereign state identity. The implications of this is that God is doing the work by virtue of his covenant with the jews for the Land, His Land. I do not believe the jews bear special dispensations for salvation outside their own personal acceptance of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. They do bear the promise of God for their identity, restoration to the Land, protection as a people and restoration as a people united unto the Coming of Christ (again) when ALL nations will be judged, including Israel. But the scriptures state Jesus is coming to the Mount of Olives in a restored Jewish land–this He has been preparing “and our eyes have seen it.” With the implications of divine covenant being their foundation for identity then comes the responsibility of Christians standing for their right to their land, their own sovereignty and freedom from genocidal ideologies (ISIS, ISIL, IRAN, neo-nazis in Europe and the USA, etc) that would remove and destroy them just for being Jews. We would defend ALL specific people groups from genocidal intent by other peoples similarly. However, the Scripture gives the strong exhortation that the Jews are the people of a certain inheritance that the Church has been ‘grafted into’ (see Romans, chapters 9, 10,11) In my mind, Christian Zionism supports the Jews ‘right of return’ based on covenantal promises made by God as read in Scripture. Politically, we would support the decision in history of the UN which resulted in the 1948 rebirth of the nation. I’m just one person, but this is how I personally see it. I think John Hagee (whom I respect a lot) needn’t use hyperbole or cloudy “challenging language” which has caused much confusion like we see today. Instead, I believe, a compelling description of the truth from scripture will carry the message to the reader that the Jews have been persecuted and harried for erroneous reasons and they are under the care of God in this day in such manner that we should fear and respect what HE is doing for and among them for their unique destiny, just as He continues to fulfill His Promises for all who are in Christ and His Prophetic promises for all the nations of the Gentiles eventually to be separated as sheep from the goats in the time of His Judgement.

23 tess September 17, 2014 at 8:13 am

Zionism from all I read is part of the NWO in that many are Jews controlling the world. They are the Bankers, Fed Reserve, Wall Street, and on and on. They do not have anyones best interest at heart, certainly need Salvation. Its no wonder people hate Israel.

24 John July 1, 2015 at 10:55 pm

Grace? Should My grace be any more than that which Yeshua the Messiah stated?

Here we see Jesus talking to the Pharisees and their pagan Talmudic ways

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Let the Messiah”s words find their mark as Hagey supports the Paharisees of today.

I never condemned the Jewish people anyway. Everybody is a wicked sinner Gentile and Jew. There are Wicked Jewish People who hate Jesus Christ, The Bible and The 10 Commandments and there are Wicked Gentiles who hate Jesus Christ, The Bible and The 10 Commandments. I heard out of his own mouth that John Hagee said Jesus never claimed to be the Messiah, he didn’t realize a lot of people read and know the Bible better than he does. I hope John Hagee is really saved and is preaching on TV for God’s Glory and not for money, God knows his heart.

28 Deborah Brai August 3, 2016 at 3:29 pm

I read this book “In Defense of Israel” several times and I had never ever came to the conclusion that Pastor Hagee denied Jesus Christ as the Messiah! I just recently came across some people stating that they do not listen to John Hagee because he denies Jesus as Messiah. I was shocked that they think this and wanted to know the basis of their claims which led me to this article. I am relieved that this is not true as I regard him very highly! I listen to Pastor Hagee daily, I ve read all his books and I rely on his teachings regarding the end times.

29 PURDIN347 August 5, 2016 at 9:48 pm

I read what he said and he did deny Jesus as the messiah, more then once.
