Scofield’s Bogus Teaching The ‘Brethren’ In Matthew 25 Are The Jewish People
Pastor John Hagee declared that ALL the nations of the world were going to be JUDGED, by how they treated the Jewish people.
That is one of the most demonic interpretations that I have ever read, and that interpretation did not originate from him. As I said before, this is classic Scofieldism (Scofield Bible), and millions of people have been ensnared with Scofield’s teachings over the decades.
As I said earlier, the whole Gospel is about Jesus Christ. God offers salvation to ALL the world, and that would include the Jewish people. The apostle Paul made that very clear also. (Romans 1:16-18) The NATIONS of the world (including Israel, past and present) are going to be JUDGED for what they did with Jesus Christ, and not for how they treated the Jewish people! Not only that but the “BRETHREN” in that passage of scripture, DOES in TRUTH, speak about the CHURCH and NOT the Jewish people as John Hagee declares. That teaching is classic CI Scofield, and that is where John Hagee got that teaching from. So then who are the BRETHREN? Jesus Christ Himself gives us the answer:
Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have. Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for the press. And it was told him by certain which said, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it. (Luke 8:18-21)
The ‘BRETHREN’ according to Jesus Christ are those which hear the word of God, and do it. The ‘BRETHREN’ are simply those disciples (followers) of Jesus Christ, who take heed to His word, and that is made very clear in Matthews version of that same passage of scripture. (see Matthew 12:46-50) The Jewish people who reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah, are clearly not His disciples, and they clearly do not believe the words that come out of His mouth. The Jewish people for the most part rejected Jesus Christ during His time as He came unto His own, and they received Him NOT! (John 1:11) and it has been that way up until this very day! If any sincere person would read the Gospel accounts, they would NEVER come up with that interpretation regarding the BRETHREN, that CI Scofield (Scofield Bible) came up with, and which has deceived millions over the years.
The Scofield teaching regarding the ‘BRETHREN’ is a BOGUS and DEMONIC DOCTRINE and it without question one of the “doctrines of devils” which the Jewish apostle Paul warned us about here:
