however it is certainly the mantra of those who truly believe in the eventual conversion of the Jews after their Messiah "reappears"......

If they said they would support Israel "Until Jesus comes back," I'd consider that the same as if they said they'd support Israel forever.


but they wouldn't, since they believe he is coming and maybe even soon ... and if some charismatic false messiah figure arose and gathered enough followers, then their doctrine basically says convert or die ....

Christian Zionists, in their 'love' for Israel, usually kind of gloss over that little point.

we've seen false messiahs before ... Shabtai Zevi, Jacob Franck ... David Koresh .... Adolf Hitler. They aren't rare, and with frenzy in this generations evangelizing Christians, I'm expecting one any moment.
