Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Pat Robertson: Dual Covenant Theology Heretic

Posted by Job on February 14, 2008

Independent Conservative » Blog Archive » Why Did Pat Robertson Lie to Michael Eisner About Salvation?On June 20, 2006 the cable TV network CNBC featured media mogul
Michael Eisner interviewing Pat Robertson. Although this happened some
time ago, there was something that took place during this particular
interview, that I have not found much outcry against and I felt it
should be noted here. Because it is a totally misleading use of
scripture and Pat Robertson once again showed he’s following AND
TEACHING a false gospel, to say what he said to Michael Eisner.

What concerns me occurred at the tail end of the interview. You can watch video of the interview via this link and once the interview video starts (after an advertisement), you can advance to 4:22 to see where things start regarding what I’m speaking of here.

Below is a quote from the official transcript.


MICHAEL EISNER:
This may be a silly question. I’ve almost been married as long as you have. About 40 years. How long have you been married?

PAT ROBERTSON:
About 52.

MICHAEL EISNER:

All right. So I’m not– I’m not in your league. I’m not in your league.

PAT ROBERTSON:

All right.

MICHAEL EISNER:
So my wife is Christian.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Right.

MICHAEL EISNER:
So I appreciate the fact that she’s Christian. She can go to heaven. I’m Jewish.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Yeah.

MICHAEL EISNER:

So from what I understand, we only can be together in– on this Earth. ‘Cause I can’t go to heaven, according to the 700 Club.

PAT ROBERTSON:

No, not according to the 700 Club. I don’t know who it’s according to.

MICHAEL EISNER:
All right. So– well, I thought Jews couldn’t go to heaven.

PAT ROBERTSON:
All right. Here’s the deal. And with this– the Apostle Paul said that
all Israel will be saved. There’s going to come a time when all Jews
are gonna come to heaven. They’re all gonna meet the– the Lord. And–
and it’s– it’s in the Old Testament. Zachariah says they’ll look upon
him who they have pierced, and they’re going to mourn and so forth. But
there’s gonna come a time of extraordinary persecution. There already
has come. But it’s gonna be some serious stuff. And– it’s told by the
Old Testament prophets the answer that we believe as evangelicals is
that God has a special role for the Jewish people. And you look at– you
look at the 22nd Psalm. He talks about his bones pulled out of joint,
you know? And he talks about people surrounding. And he looks down, and
it describes the crucifixion. It’s all in there. It’s in the Old
Testament– describing what happened. And– I’m just one of the goy that
came along late. (LAUGHTER) I– I’m– I’m converting to the– to the faith
of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

MICHAEL EISNER:
So you’re converting to Judaism.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Well, I’m not converting to Judaism. (OVERTALK)

MICHAEL EISNER:

See, I thought I’d– this would be– this would be a big announcement here.

PAT ROBERTSON:
(LAUGHTER) I’m–

MICHAEL EISNER:
I could get a big rating.

PAT ROBERTSON:
I’m converting– (OVERTALK)

MICHAEL EISNER:
Pat Robertson converts to Judaism. (OVERTALK)

PAT ROBERTSON:
–faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And– but the time is coming very
soon when there’s going to be a revelation of the Lord to everybody.
And all Israel, all Israel is gonna get saved.

MICHAEL EISNER:
You’ve always been known to be very pro-Israel.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Totally pro-Israel. I mean, I– I’ve got the Star of David printed on my underwear. I mean, it’s that kind of thing.

MICHAEL EISNER:
Thought you had Mickey Mouse on your underwear.

PAT ROBERTSON:

(LAUGHTER) (UNINTEL) said you’re more Israeli than (UNINTEL). But in–
in any event– I firmly believe that according to the Bible, the– the
fullness of the Gentiles will come in. And then all Israel will be
saved. That’s what the Apostle Paul wrote.

MICHAEL EISNER:

Wow. (LAUGHTER) Thank you very much– (OVERTALK)

MICHAEL EISNER:
Got a lot to think about now.

PAT ROBERTSON:
(LAUGHTER) I want you to be with your wife.

MICHAEL EISNER:
Yeah. I’m gonna be with her, one way or the other.

PAT ROBERTSON:
Okay. (LAUGHTER)

MICHAEL EISNER:

Thank you.

What Pat Robertson basically said was (paraphrasing), All you Jews are going to Heaven, because Paul said ALL ISRAEL will be saved.

In the context Pat Robertson spoke, he spoke a lie. We could say Hebrew scripture notes all Israel one day went into the promised land, HOWEVER we should not forget that many did not get beyond the wilderness.

Numbers 14:22-32 (New American Standard Bible)

22 “Surely all the men who have seen My glory and My
signs which I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have put Me
to the test these ten times and have not listened to My voice,

23 shall by no means see the land which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it.

24 “But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and
has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and
his descendants shall take possession of it.

25 “Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites live in the valleys; turn
tomorrow and set out to the wilderness by the way of the Red Sea.”

26 The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,

27 “How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who are
grumbling against Me? I have heard the complaints of the sons of
Israel, which they are making against Me.

28 “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the LORD, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will surely do to you;

29 your corpses will fall in this wilderness, even all your
numbered men, according to your complete number from twenty years old
and upward, who have grumbled against Me.

30 ‘Surely you shall not come into the land in which I swore to
settle you, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.

31 ‘Your children, however, whom you said would become a prey–I
will bring them in, and they will know the land which you have rejected.

32 ‘But as for you, your corpses will fall in this wilderness.

Take note of the statement “nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it”.
The Messiah of Hebrew scripture has come and His name is Jesus, Yeshua.
Yeshua, Jesus is the Christ. Since his coming, He warned Israel for
their unbelief in Him.

Luke 19:41-44 (New American Standard Bible)

41 When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it,

42 saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things
which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.

43 “For the days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up
a barricade against you, and surround you and hem you in on every side,

44 and they will level you to the ground and your children within
you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you
did not recognize the time of your visitation.”

And it did happen.

Jesus provided the means for salvation through belief on Him. Jesus even explained this himself in John 3.
Through His sacrificial death, burial and resurrection, He provides
salvation to all who believe on Him, turning from darkness, both Jew
and Gentile alike.

One who rejects Jesus does not have the Father, they do not have God. They are not saved.

1 John 2:22-23 (New American Standard Bible)

22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is
the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and
the Son.

23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.

Therefore, it is impossible to tell anyone, even a Jew (a person of Hebrew blood) that they can be saved via any means except they believe on Jesus Christ. If they deny Him, they are not saved, period.

So what of all Israel being saved as Paul said? It is just like it
was for the Jews of the past. Those who deny the truth God has given to
man through His Son will perish, but a final remnant of Israel will
believe on Him and be saved. This does not mean Michael Eisner will be
part of that group. So to tell Michael Eisner “all Israel”, as if it
applies to him and all Jews is an untruth. Romans 11
is best read in full, given it details things fully. Through Hebrew
disobedience a means of salvation was made for Gentiles that believe on
Christ, but no Jew who rejects Christ will be saved. All Jews reading
this post should read the book of Hebrews from its first chapter to its last (chapter 13). When the fullness of Gentiles has come in (all Gentiles who are the Lord’s believe on Him),
that final remaining remnant of Hebrew blood will be at a point in
biblical prophesy, where they will all accept Jesus as Lord and He will
save them and all still in flesh at that time who believe on Him. All
who die today believing on Christ are saved too, but not anyone who
fails to. This does not mean Michael Eisner is saved by virtue of his
heritage, no more than anyone else that fails to believe on Jesus.

I feel it is a heinous crime against the Lord God, that so-called Christians are lying to people of Hebrew descent.

  2. Brother Job, I just want to thank you for especially making a copy of this post. This is a major issue regarding people like Pat Robertson, that gets glossed over too often. That is just shocking to me.

    An entire Bible with apostles working till death to tell their fellow Jews about the Christ they had crucified and the NEED to embrace Him NOW, while Pat Robertson trashes all the good effort by lying to Jews.

    You can’t honestly follow the Bible and get this issue wrong. This is not a “non-essential”. It is very much an essential, that Christians all have this correct, or they are NOT following the gospel of Jesus Christ, first to the Jew AND THEN to everyone else.

    Romans 1:16 (King James Version)

    16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Try and remove (or even water down) evangelism to the Jews and you are under another gospel. That is not the message of Jesus Christ, so it can only be seen as work of another jesus. A false christ.

  3. Timothy said

    The Dual Covenant theology is false. Even John Hagee has been caught up into it. The Bible in the NT is clear that Jewish people and Gentile have to believe in Jesus Christ to obtain Heaven. It’s as simple as that.

    All-
    Step back for a second and look at the big picture. The New Testament describes 3 distinct groups of people. Jews, Christians (Gentiles), and those who are non Jews and non Christians (the world). Later, the New Testament gives the Great Commission to Christians to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel” Notice the people group reference, it is not talking about the Jews. The Jews were given a covenant by God made through Abraham in the Old Testament. They are believing that God will send the Messiah to come save and redeem them.

    The New Testament describes that the Jews were blinded to the fact that Jesus was Lord when he was on the earth the first time. Why would God blind them and then send his chosen people to Hell? The Messiah they are waiting for is the second coming of Jesus Christ. They were blind to the first coming of Jesus so that the non Jews could have the opportunity to be saved, made right with God, and that the Church could go into all of the world. The big purpose of the New Testament is so that the non Jewish people could have a way to salvation through Jesus.

    The Jews will one day have the blinders removed to who Jesus really is and be given the choice to either believe in Jesus or go to Hell, the same as any Christian. I am no theologian, but from what I understand that will not happen until after church has been raptured. That is why Jesus said “I am THE way, THE truth, and THE life. No one comes to the father except through me.” That doesnt exclude the Jew, it includes them.

    Dual Covenant theology is basically saying that the Jews are waiting for Jesus and that they still have a valid covenant with God. They can convert and accept Jesus now, which is a new and better covenant than the old one, but does not invalidate their old covenant. The active, practicing Jew is believing in their covenant relationship that God made with Abraham, and believing in their Messiah…. who they will find out is Jesus. If a Jew doesnt believe, they will go to Hell like any other person who rejects God or Jesus.

    Replacement theology (the opposite of Dual Covenant) basically says that God is done with the Jews, their old testament covenant is broken, and they need to accept Jesus or go to Hell. First off, God does not break his covenants. The new testament is described as a new and better covenant, but not a replacement covenant. On top of that, a practicing Jew believes in the coming of their Messiah, the Lion of Judah, which is Jesus coming to rule and reign on the Earth. In the book of Revelation, the Jewish people are God’s earthly ambassadors in the Eternal ages to come. The Christian will be ruling and reigning with Jesus. If the Jewish person no longer mattered or were replaced by the Church… why would they be referred to separately in the Eternal ages to come??????

    Responding to the responses…

    The NT makes it clear that the law is our schoolmaster. It brings us to Christ.
    The coming of Christ 2000 years ago was an extension of the ONLY covenant.
    There has only been ONE covenant all the way back to Adam and Eve.
    Jesus IS the covenant.

    Without Jesus or Yeshua there is no way to get to heaven or avoid hell.

    Remember that Abraham was a “Gentile” before he was called a “Jew”.

    It’s not about RACE, it’s about FAITH.

    Some of the Jewish race may follow the Torah. Many also follow the Talmud. Additionally, others are Buddhists or atheists.

    Even if one were to make the vain argument that following the Torah would lead to salvation, what of those of the Jewish race who do not even follow the Torah?

    Would the believers in “dual covenant” theology count ALL Jews as worthy of heaven?

    The citizens of modern day Israel are as wicked as modern day Americans… as wicked as their idolatrous ancestors whom God punished.

    Let’s suppose that everything that the NT teaches is for the Gentile ONLY, and not for the Jew.
    THEN the modern Jew had better be living VERY righteously by the law, in order to please God.

    My understanding is that when Paul speaks of the “all Israel” he’s referring to an end-times remnant, though obviously not *all* Israel summed over time- i.e. every Israelite that ever existed, ever. Even a casual reading of the Bible will reveal that to be untrue. And I’m not sure there’s anything in that transcript that suggests Robertson was advocating dual-covenant theology as such- it depends what he means by the “all Israel”.

    Of course said remnant will only be saved upon accepting Jesus as their Messiah- there is no other way.

  7. Kyle said

    This theology is steeped in Zionism which has plagued the planet since theodore Hertzel to the present.

    Christian Zionism is a dangerous movement.

    Christian Zionism is only the belief that Isreal belongs to the Jews
