The current Ebola outbreak is God’s punishment for U.S. President Barack Obama attempting to divide Jerusalem, according to the founder of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), John Hagee.

The San Antonio-based pastor, Zionist, and televangelist issued the grim warning in a recent broadcast of the Hagee Hotline. Hagee cited Joel 3 to alert America that God intends to judge any nation that attempts to divide Israel.

”God says that when any nation divides up the land of Israel, they are subject to judgement, and dividing Jerusalem is dividing the land," Hagee said. "Our president is dead set on dividing Jerusalem. He is watching, and he will bring America into judgment.”

“There are grounds to say that judgment has already begun, because he, the president, has been fighting to divide Jerusalem for years now. We are now experiencing the crisis of Ebola,” the Christian-Zionist leader proclaimed.

The CUFI founder also stated that America is currently in a “crisis of leadership,” as evidenced by the chaos that has taken over the country. In addition to “the crisis of Ebola," America is experiencing an economic crisis as well as the threat of being "attacked by radical Islam.”

On the same broadcast, host Matthew Hagee cited Matthew 24:7 to claim that the current Ebola crisis is a “pestilence,” and thus, a sign of the end of times, and the second-coming of Jesus Christ.

"Pestilence is an illness for which there seems to be no cure," Hagee said. "That would certainly describe Ebola, " he added.
