“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgement now of long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” II Peter 2:3.
In The Expositor’s Study Bible, Jimmy Swaggart has not only mixed his words with the Words of God, but highlighted them in red, the common way most Bibles have of showing the Words of Jesus Christ. It is fearful to find any man’s words mixed in with the Words of Almighty God and it is equally fearful to read many of Swaggart’s doctrines of demons.
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye received, let him be accursed.” Gal. 1:8,9.
The Expositor’s Study Bible – Heresies
“For Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time which God had spoken to him.” Genesis 21:2.
(“Referring back to the last Chapter, if it be objected that this whole occurrence is incredible, because no heathen prince would desire to marry a woman upwards of ninety years of age, or to conceive such a passion for her to secure her he would murder her husband – the very fate which Abraham feared for himself – it may be replied that God must have miraculously renewed her youth, so that she became sufficiently youthful in appearance to suitably be desired…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 39.
“After many days you shall be visited; in the latter years you shall come back into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.” Ezekiel 38:8.
(“…”And they shall dwell safely all of them,” refers to the terrible horror of the Holocaust in World War II, with some 6,000,000 Jews being slaughtered by Hitler, and Israel then demanding a homeland instead of being of being scattered all over the world. Their feeling was that if this could be obtained, then they would be “safe”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.1445.
“And you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them who are at rest, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates” Ezekiel 38:11.
(“the phrases, “The land of unwalled villages” “Dwelling without walls” and “Having neither bars nor gates,” refer to Israel’s efforts at mobilization to be weak, at least in the mind of the Antichrist”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.1446.
“And, behold, I send you the Promise of My father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until you be endued with power from on high.” Luke 24:49.
(“…this is the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, which is always accompanied by the speaking with other tongue [Acts 2:4]; without being thus endued, the Believer and the Church are of little worth to the Kingdom of God.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 1835.
“And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.” Galatians 6:16.
(“This refers to all who look to the Cross for their Redemption. They alone are the true Israel.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2060
“Which is His Body, the fullness of Him that fills all in all.” Ephesians 1:23.
(“…As Christ was the True Israel, and is the True Man, He is also the True Church.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2062.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” II Thessalonians 2:3.
(“…”should have been translated, “for that day shall not come, except there come a departure first”; this speaks of the Rapture,…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2094.
“I know your works, and tribulations, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the Synagogue of Satan.” Revelation 2:9.
(“…from this verse we learn that God doesn’t consider Jews who reject Christ as truly Jewish. The worship of Christ-rejecting Jews is concluded by the Lord to be Satanic.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 2185.
“Behold, I will make them of the Synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.” Revelation 3:9.
(“proclaims the fact that God doesn’t recognize the spiritual claims of national Israel…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p. 2187.
“And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.” Revelation 11:5.
(“pertains to the judgment and not literal fire…”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2197.
“And she brought forth a manchild, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.” Revelation 12:5.
(“as stated, this is the 144,000 Jews who will come to Christ during the first half of the Great Tribulation [Chpt.7]; we aren’t told how this will be done.”) Jimmy Swaggart, p.2199.
British Israel Connection
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils:” I Timothy 4:1.
Swaggart’s teachings that replace Israel with the Church, Jesus Christ, who will “rule all nations with a rod of iron”, with the 144,000 Jews (who will be used mightily by the Lord during the Great Tribulation) and “God doesn’t recognize the spiritual claims of national Israel” along with his bizarre comment “As strange as it may sound, the history of Israel and the U.S.A. go back over 2,500 years.” (The United States, Israel & Islam, Jimmy Swaggart, p. 43.), are the blasphemous beliefs of British Israelism, as can be verified by the following excerpt from an article written by British Israel believer Walter Baucum.
“Now, 2,500 years of American prehistory must be transferred to history, for history begins when writing begins and we now have the oldest written documents of our nation and the names of the men who wrote them. British children continue to learn the history of Britain from the remotest stone-age era, through the Celts, the Roman invaders, the Saxon invasions, the Norman invasion, and so on through the middle ages into the present era. American children though, until now, began their history with Christopher Columbus in 1942. We can now date our history as far back as can the British people.” (Are We Israel – If So, Who Cares?, Walter Baucum.)http://www.uhcg.org/Lost-10-Tribes/AreWeIsrael.html
On the September 19, 2012, Frances and Friends program, Francis, Donnie, panel member Jim Nabors, and guest Johnny Lee Clarry discussed the false teachings of British Israelism. This is just one more example of double speak from the Swaggarts.
