anti-Semite

The term anti-Semite has been weaponized.  Anti-Zionism is apparently antisemitic. Israel is beyond reproach. Jews take advantage of an open society to subvert and reshape its culture to suit their ends. Jewish power  is vested in the stability of the American state which is now showing considerable stress due largely to the destabilizing cultural impact of over most of the last century. The following UK column report is a must watch not only for its take on antisemitism and how it has been weaponized but also the report on UK defense policy.

 

The Anglo-Zionists are using the "five eyes" to destroy Corbyn. It is not just the UK and the US but much of the western world is in the grip of the same phenomenon. One commentator calls it "peak Jew" (LOL) see the article by Jewish author Israel Shamir on France: For the Love of Jews .  Many of the nationalist movements in Eastern Europe are also very pro-Zionist and pro-Jewish.   Of course, it is over simplistic to scapegoat (LOL) the Jews for all the troubles that the West is facing but the fact is that Western elites are top-heavy with Jews and often intermarried etc.   One does not have to be a "Nazi"  note the increasing Jewish influence on global politics.

The Holocaust and Isaiah 53

 

The term “holocaust” means whole burnt offering.  The Talmud (not the Old Testament) predicted that it was necessary that 6 million Jews had to die (be offered) before God would allow the Jews to return to the land.   Nowhere in the Torah does God demand 6 million Jewish deaths. In fact, God did not even allow Isaac to be offered. The figure of 6 million is repeatedly found in newspaper reports at least 20 years before WW2 as is the word “holocaust”. 

Moreover, Judaism promotes an interpretation of Isaiah 53 that understands the “suffering servant” as the nation of Israel.   The interpretation offered by Judaism is completely unnuanced and biased and demonstrates either a complete lack of understanding of their own scriptures or a deliberately dishonest approach. The rabbis teach a Talmudic version of "prophecy" where the messiah is replaced by the “Jewish state”.    The nation becomes its own saviour.  This is typical of the type of commentary that can be found online:

The Jew suffered due to other people. He was the first victim, the eternal scapegoat for the faults and misfortunes of others. The Gentiles will admit that Judah was considered accursed, yet his affliction was due to our imposing upon him the results of our own calamities (Isaiah 53:4). The Jew was punished for the sins of others (53:5). The Jew often succeeded in dedicating himself to the Law when he could. When he was forced (by outsiders) or seduced to abandon it he applied his energies in other directions: in jurisprudence, trade, science, philosophy, philanthropy. The Messiah shall come from Judah. The Jew has a natural instinct to reform things, to rectify the world. When the Jew is deprived of Torah this instinct can be misdirected. Sometimes it does good and on occasion it can do damage. Either way the Jew is hated by many Gentiles merely because he is active, is different and stands out. The sins of others are transposed onto the Jew (53:11). In the Last Days Judah shall be rich and powerful and a great nation, among the greatest that exist. AND HE SHALL DIVIDE THE SPOIL WITH THE STRONG: Judah shall be a military might, an old lion who must be dealt with carefully and with respect. AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH THE TRANSGRESSORS; Jews were accused and still are of all the sins under the sun and still more and of being criminals and controlling all the crime and mischief of the world. AND HE BARE THE SIN OF MANY, Not only was Judah made responsible for the sins of others, but he also took upon himself to make retribution for the faults of others. AND MADE INTERCESSION FOR THE TRANSGRESSORS. Jews champion the oppressed and seek to help whoever needs help even when those who are in need were the cause of their own downfall (53:12).

This demonstrates how little the Jews understand of their own Scriptures.  The scapegoat does indeed represent the nation.  The scapegoat bears the sins of the nation and was released in the wilderness.  As such the scapegoat represents the nation sent into exile bearing its own sin (not gentile sin).   The story of Cain and Able is based on this ritual, with Cain sent away from the sanctuary into exile (scapegoat) and Abel (goat for Yahweh) slaughtered.  Cain was “accursed” because he brought the wrong offering (grown by sweaty labour [Gen 3:19] from the cursed ground) and Cain slew his brother out of jealousy and anger. Cain ought to have known that God provided animal skins as covering for his parent’s nakedness, atonement was not solely dependent on human effort. Once again, the Jews revel in their self-imposed victim-hood.  Similar to Cain they complain that they are vagabonds and unable to bear the punishment that is the result of their own disobedience and intransigence.  And yet God is merciful and protects Cain. God does not allow the scapegoat to be killed (an “innovation” later adopted by the Rabbis) because at some future point God will forgive and cleanse the scapegoat and bring it back home. However, forgiveness requires repentance (think here of the parable of the prodigal son) but how can you forgive someone who never, ever, ever admits that they have done any wrong? Everyman’s hand is against them for no reason.   They are the perpetual victim and bear no blame. 

Debunking a bad interpretation

The following introduction to Isaiah 53 is from Rabbi Tovia Singer via the Outreach Judaism[1] website:

Despite strong objections from conservative Christian apologists, the prevailing rabbinic interpretation of Isaiah 53 ascribes the “servant” to the nation of Israel who silently endured unimaginable suffering at the hands of its gentile oppressors. The speakers, in this most-debated chapter, are the stunned kings of nations who will bear witness to the messianic age and the final vindication of the Jewish people following their long and bitter exile. “Who would have believed our report?,” the astonished and contrite world leaders wonder aloud in dazed bewilderment (53:1).[2]

The stimulus for the world’s baffled response contained in this famed cluster of chapters at the end of the Book of Isaiah is the unexpected salvation of Israel. The redemption of God’s people is the central theme in the preceding verse (52:12) where the “you” signifies the Jewish people who are sheltered and delivered by God. Moreover, the “afflicted barren woman” in the following chapter is protected and saved by God, and is also universally recognized as the nation of Israel [3] (54:1).

There are so many things wrong with this interpretation that it is difficult to know where to commence.  It portrays the nation of Israel as a “victim” silently enduring unmerited suffering at the hand of horrible gentiles.   In the case of Isaiah, the gentiles are the Assyrians who were known for their cruelty and violence, but the interpretation conveniently leaves out the fact that God himself brought the Assyrians against Israel because of the nation’s disobedience and sinfulness.

“Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity,
a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters:
they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked
the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone
away backward” (Isa 1:4).

It is remarkable (or perhaps not) that the rabbi completely neglects the fact that the original context of Isaiah is the near death of Hezekiah.  Hezekiah is the “suffering servant” of Isaiah 53 and he represents the faithful remnant.   Answer me this rabbi…. why is the central portion of the book of Isaiah chapters 36-38 all about the sickness and recovery of Hezekiah?

Hezekiah was the “suffering servant” and his miraculous recovery from his death bed and the miraculous Passover deliverance of Jerusalem from Assyria are the initial subject of Isaiah 53.   Hezekiah represented the faithful remnant in the nation.   The rabbi says;

“Moreover, the “afflicted barren woman” in the
following chapter is protected and saved by God,
and is also universally recognized as the nation
of Israel (54:1)”.

The rabbi is correct.  The barren woman is based on Rachel, one of the matriarchs who died in childbirth (Gen 35:16-19).   But what is the saying in Isaiah 54:1 based on?

“And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth”. (2 Kings 19:3)

The saying comes from the very mouth of Hezekiah who portrays the nation as writhing in excruciating birth pangs like Rachel.   The nation is about to die in childbirth.  The promise to Eve was that deliverance (= the messiah) would come through childbirth (Gen 3:15) but now the nation faced death.  How could the nation “bring forth the messiah” when the king was about to die childless?   How could the promise to Abraham be kept and the covenant with David if Hezekiah died?

And yet, Hezekiah willingly accepted and absorbed the divine punishment meted out against the disobedient nation.  He endured the mocking and contempt of Sennacherib. He silently bore the plotting of Shebna and the pro-Assyrian party (and the drunken defeatism of the Ephraimites).  He kept faith in his God. 

Hezekiah was a faithful king and as such he represented the faithful remnant in the nation.   The kings of Israel and Judah were believed to serve as divine agents to rule the nation.  Therefore, the king held a unique position in that he was a corporate representative but also a divine agent.

In other words, the king represented the nation to God.  Kingship had a corporate, representative function.  However, the king was also meant to represent God to the nation.  Agency was an important part of everyday life in the ancient world.  Individuals such as prophets and angels mentioned in the Jewish Scriptures were thought of as ‘agents’ of God.  And the key idea regarding agency in the ancient world appears to be summarized in the phrase from rabbinic literature so often quoted in these contexts: “The one sent is like the one who sent him.”[4]

“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of
my mouth: it shall not return unto me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto
I sent it”
. (Isa 55:11)

How would this anthropomorphised prophetic “word” prosper?

 

“Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; 
he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt
make his soul an offering for sin, he shall
see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and
the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in
his hand”
. (Isa 53:10)

Hezekiah was saved.  On the third day he was raised from his death bed. The city was saved.  Hezekiah was granted an extra 15 years of life.  He had a son and continued the Davidic line.   Like suffering Job, king Hezekiah kept the faith and God kept his covenant.  As with Job, everyone except God had abandoned him.

So, Hezekiah proved to be the initial fulfillment of the Emmanuel prophecy (God with us) but the story does not end there.  These are quite clearly messianic prophecies and typical fulfillment. In other words, they are repeat patterns pointing forward to an even greater deliverance.

That deliverance found its fulfillment in Jesus Christ, the true King of the Jews and Son of God. The ultimate intermediary between God and man.

Conclusion

Isaiah 53 is initially based on Hezekiah but ultimately typical of Jesus Christ.   All scripture points towards the messiah Jesus Christ.  He was the perfect representative between God and man.  He was not equal to God and never claimed to be.

The rabbis who portray the “nation of Israel” as the “suffering servant” are disingenuous and dishonest.   They are presenting the Jews as perpetual victims of racist and cruel gentiles who for no apparent reason want to make them suffer.   Apparently Jewish suffering has a unique vicarious quality that will “cleanse” the gentiles and herald the messianic age.  Such suffering is (according to them) well pleasing to God.  Of course, it is all nonsense.  Any suffering that the Jews experience is a consequence of their bad behaviour and is divine punishment for disobedience.  Such behaviour is not well pleasing to God.  And their suffering does not expunge anyone’s guilt.

 

“The soul that sinneth, it shall die. 
The son shall not bear the iniquity
of the father, neither shall the father
bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness
of the righteous shall be upon him, and the
wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him”. (Ezek 18:20)

Approximately 55 million people died as a consequence of WW2.  Many of them were not Jews.  The holocaust was not an “offering” to God.  It was not a fulfilment of “Talmudic prophecy” and one does not even have to delve into the truth claims of the holocaust to understand that a historical tragedy has been fetishized and scripture has been manipulated and “spun” to propagandize for Zionism.  You may be able to fool men, but you will not be able to fool God.  God will not be mocked.  Jacob the deceiver is about to meet his maker and he will be wrestled to a halt.   I suggest that the rabbis read my commentary “Dark Sayings” and other articles on this website and brush up on their appalling lack of Old Testament understanding.     https://www.biblaridion.info/html/dark.html

Bar Kochba the ultimate muscular Jewish hero: from false messiah to Zionist icon

Bar Kochba the ultimate muscular Jewish

hero: from false messiah to Zionist icon

Arthur Szyk (1894-1951) Bar Kochba

Arthur Szyk (1894-1951) Bar Kochba (1927) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)]

In his autobiography, John Cleese pondered the ill-fated Charge of the Light Brigade and the hacking to death of General Gordon. The British seem to admire their heroic failures. Perhaps the idea of “heroic failure” inspired the Monty-Python sketch of the black Knight with the “flesh wound”. Zionism venerates Masada and the Bar Kochba revolt.    Those events were not heroic failures but mass suicides.  The result of the Kochba revolt was nine hundred and eighty-five burnt villages and five hundred and eighty thousand dead Jewish fighters.[1]  Jews were banned from Jerusalem and many were sold into slavery or prostitution.  

The Kochba result was a pyrrhic “victory”.  It was the second century version of the Samson Option.[2]  The freedom of Jerusalem only lasted three and a half years.  The Temple was not rebuilt.   Why then are the Zionist obsessed with Bar Kochba?

 

Muscle Jew or soy boy?

Kochba is admired for his stamina, physical strength and charisma. The story goes that he could pluck a cedar tree out of the ground from horseback.  An exaggeration based on training his cavalry to uproot seedlings.[3]  He demanded proof of unwavering loyalty with followers cutting off their pinkie fingers.[4] Many of his fighters were religious fanatics (Jihad) and prayed with tefillin wrapped around their arms and strapped to their foreheads.[5]  His followers were therefore easily identified by their hand (amputated finger) and by the mark that the tefillin imprinted on their foreheads.

 

Bar Kochba became the poster boy for the Zionist movement.   Jews could no longer be weak “intellectuals” who got sand kicked in their face on the beach.  No room for “girly men” or “sissies” only macho men need apply.  The switch from victim mentality to Übermensch is the work of Max Nordau who coined the term muscular-Judaism (Muskeljudentum). Nordau called for the rise of muscle Jews at the Second Zionist Congress.

 

In 1897, Herzl convened the First Zionist congress, but he did not give the opening address – Nordau did.  Netanyahu[6] saw Nordau as one of the most important actors in the development of Zionism.    Netanyahu calls him “the greatest apostle of Zionism” and Likens him to “an ancient prophet”. Rumours even appeared in the press that Nordau would become the first Prime Minister of Israel.   And yet, after statehood was attained, he was largely marginalised in Zionist history.    Why is that?

 

Nordau was the father of “racial Zionism”. [7]  He was obsessed with physicality, eugenics, race and the degeneracy of European culture.   Twenty years later the Nazi’s were saying the same things about the Aryan race.  Germans and Jews were both fixated on physicality and race. That probably explains why Nordau is marginalised in contemporary Zionism. However, the same cannot be said about Bar Kochba.

In 1898 the Bar Kochba gymnastic club was founded in Berlin.  In the years that followed Jewish athletes won proportionately more Olympic medals for Austria than ethnic Austrians. That changed when Germany topped the Olympics table in 1936.  

 

Burying the past or rewriting it?

Bar Kochba has been fetishized in some circles.  Bar Kochba’s ghost still walks, even though his bones were buried by the Israeli government in 1982. [8]  The Bar Kochba rebellion has been mythologized by the Zionists. According to Dr. Harkabi [9] the Jews were decimated by Kochba’s unrealistic policy.

''The problem is not how Bar Kochba erred,'' Dr. Harkabi wrote,

''but how we came to admire his error and how this 
influences the manner of our national thinking.
By admiring the Bar Kochba revolt, we are forced
into the position of admiring our destruction
and rejoicing over a deed amounting
to national suicide. (my emphasis)'' [10]

Dr. Harkabi suggested that current Israeli policy was also unrealistic;

 

''The Bar Kokhba Rebellion, according to my analysis,
stemmed from an unrealistic assessment of historical
and political circumstances. This issue of realism
is central to the formulation of all political and
strategical decisions; and the prescriptions of realism
apply both to individuals and to political entities.
Further, since the rebellion involved considerable risk,
it is necessary to analyze the issues of risk-taking
and speculation, and their limits. Policy always involves
risk-taking, with one proviso: that the national existence
not be placed in ultimate jeopardy. It was precisely this
proviso that was contravened by the Bar Kokhba Rebellion''. [11]

 

 

The Kochba revolt is commemorated on the festival of Lag Ba’Omer.  The festival is celebrated by lighting bonfires which is ironic considering the pyrrhic nature of the victory.   Early Zionists co-opted the religious celebration and emphasized the military aspect rather than the rabbinic nature of the memorial. [12]    The holiday was “re-interpreted” accentuating the heroic nature of the Bar Kochba revolt.[13]  In modern Israel, Lag Ba’Omer is "a symbol for the fighting Jewish spirit". The Palmach division (Strike Squadrons) were established on Lag Ba’Omer 1941, and the government order creating the Israel Defence Forces was issued on Lag Ba’Omer 1948.[14] Beginning in 2004, the Israeli government designated Lag Ba’Omer as the day for saluting the IDF reserves.[15]  Benjamin Lau writes in Haaretz:

 

''This is how Lag Ba'omer became a part of the Israeli-Zionist psyche during the first years of Zionism and Israel. A clear distinction became evident between Jews and Israelis in the way the day was celebrated: The religious Jews lit torches in Rashbi's [Shimon bar Yochai's] honor and sang songs about him, while young Israelis, sitting around an alternative bonfire, sang about a hero "whom the entire nation loved" and focused on the image of a powerful hero who galloped on a lion in his charges against the Romans''.[16]

 

Modern Israel and echoes of the past

 

The Bar Kochba revolt did not occur in a vacuum.  The backdrop of the revolt were the Geo-political struggles between Rome and Parthia.  Trajan travelled up the Euphrates and conquered ancient Babylon.  This shocked the Parthian Jews.  Their lucrative trade was threatened.  They traded as far as China using the silk route.  The Jewish community of Parthia was over a million strong.  They established law schools all over Babylonia.  They were semi-autonomous and had their own leader called the Exilarch. This was their base and where they wrote the Babylonian Talmud.[17]

 

Jewish rebellions erupted all over the Roman Empire.[18] In Cyprus 240,000 Greeks were massacred by the Jews.  The rebels were secretly supported by the Jews of Parthia. Multiple rebellions were put down in the Kitos war.  At the end of the Kitos war Trajan attempted to conquer Parthia (the source of the problem). However, Rome never held Parthia. The Euphrates formed an effective border. 

Bar Kochba attempted his own “Yinon Plan”. [19] Afterall, the Jews had been promised the land up to the Euphrates.  In the time of Abraham ten Canaanite tribes were listed as occupiers.[20] The first of the “shock troops” employed in the revolt were Torah students.  Twenty-four thousand students had been recruited by chief rabbi Akiva who regularly travelled from Palestine to Parthia.  Presumably these were “muscular” students and they beat the Romans to death with their Torah scrolls. Talmudic tradition has it that they fell out and were therefore struck down with a plague. Tradition also has it that many captured “students”[21]  were wrapped in Torah scrolls and set alight by the Romans.

 

The Bar Kochba rebellion shook the Roman Empire to its core.  Hadrian employed ten legions to defeat the revolt.  He recalled his general Julius Severus from Britain to supress the revolt.  He even downplayed the customary upbeat victory greeting sent to the senate.  The victory had cost too many Roman lives and had been hard fought.  Hadrian was not magnanimous in victory.  He banned the Jews on pain of death from entering Jerusalem.  He built a temple to Jupiter and renamed the city Aelia Capitolina.  It was effectively the end of Judea and the troublesome Jews.

 

The war that Kochba fought was a religious war.  There can be no doubt that commercial considerations and a wish for independence also played a role.  However, at the root lay the desire for a regional empire controlled by a centralized government and temple.  The chief Rabbi Akiva declared that Bar Kosibah was the messiah as predicted in the prophecy of Num 24.17 and he was renamed Bar Kochba or the “Son of a Star”.   It is a coincidence (sic) that his epithet carries the gematria value of 666.[22]  On his coins Bar Kochba depicted “his star” ascending above the temple.[23]  As he only held Jerusalem for three and a half years it is doubtful whether he built a temple structure.  However, it is entirely feasible that he constructed a temporary structure (like king David did) and recommenced sacrifices.  His coins are thought to depict the Ark of the Covenant, but close examination demonstrates that it is a Torah Ark where the law scrolls were kept.

 

His coins were manufactured by over striking Roman coins.  Jewish-Christians refused to accept the messianic claims of Bar Kochba.  They rejected the endorsement of the chief Rabbi Akiva. They opposed the re-commencement of sacrifice and refused to use the new coins to buy and sell [24] with.  For this reason, many Jewish-Christians were put to death or fled. Jewish-Christianity had all but perished by the third century. 

 

Mark Twain stated that, “History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes”.   The Zionist nation has chosen Bar Kochba as hero.   Kochba was an arrogant and cruel man with a form of outward religiosity and law keeping.  Even the rabbis admit that at one stage Kochba declared that God mind his own business as they could look after themselves.  It is doubtful that Kochba wanted a temple for purely religious reasons, just as it is doubtful that current Zionists are willing to tolerate and encourage temple fanatics for religious reasons.[25]  The temple exercised a unifying force on world Jewry.  It was a place of pilgrimage and veneration. It collected vast monies from the diaspora.  Under Herod it functioned as a central bank.  In short it functioned as a money-making machine and a power hub.  It would form the jewel in the crown of a new Jewish empire.  And so, the pattern repeats.  Repeating the same behaviour and expecting a different outcome is the definition of insanity.[26]  

 

  The response of Jewish-Christianity

 

Jewish Christians renamed Bar Kochba as Bar Kozib or “Son of a lie”. [27]  They saw him as a messianic pretender and a troublemaker.  They heeded the warning issued seventy-five years earlier and refused his confession and therefore they were put to death.   The demise of Bar Kochba and his fortress are described by the rabbis in apocalyptic terms.  The blood ran to the height of the horse’s bridles. [28] They were crushed like the grape harvest and Hadrian stacked their dead bodies as stones to build a wall for his vineyard.   The vineyard of Israel had been decimated. Three and a half years of independence had been crushed.  Jerusalem was given to the Gentiles[29] and the Jews were scattered.  The emergence of the Babylonian supported beast and its false messiah had been condemned back to the abyss.  However, the monster is re-emerging from the abyss trailing the smoke of destruction.[30] This time the pattern will be broken once and for all.

[26] "When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' "And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. "Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first" (Luke 11:24-26).  The reference here is to the Day of Atonement when the scapegoat (symbolising the sinful nation) was sent into “dry places” or the wilderness (sent into captivity).  The nation had returned from captivity and found the “house” (temple) swept clean. Jesus had thrown out the money changers (bankers) just before Passover.  It was traditional that at the feast of unleavened bread, Jews would “spring clean” their homes and remove any “leaven” (yeast) in preparation for the Passover.  In the first century the priestly dynasty of Caiaphas (seven in total) captured and corrupted the priesthood (seven other wicked sprits).  Suffice to say they refused the messiah and the nation went totally insane.

[27]  And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie (2 Thess 2:11).  Bar Kochba was renamed son of a lie.  The causa sui of human consciousness the original lie that man can be God. Represented by the false messiah Kochba and by the insane psychopaths who want to rule the world with their technocracy. Wanting to become “gods”, they seek omnipotence and omnipresence through technology and AI. “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Highest.  But ye shall die like men and fall like one of the princes” (Ps. 82:6-7).

[28] The Jerusalem Talmud relates that the number of slain was so enormous, that the Romans "went on killing until their horses were submerged in blood to their nostrils," Ta'anit 4:5 (24a-b); also repeated in Midrash Rabba (Lamentations Rabba 2:5). Compare this with the Apocalypse: “And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs” (Rev 14:20).   There are many other connections see [retrieved Nov 2019]:   http://www.biblaridion.info/html/ch14.html

[29]  "But leave out the court, which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months" (Rev 11:2).  The first Jewish war lasted 3.5 years [42 months] as did the Kochba Revolt, this seems to presage another 3.5 years of turmoil. The First and Second temple as well as the Kochba fortress all fell on the 9th of Ab.  Repeat patterns.  Jerusalem became a Gentile city under Hadrian.

[30] “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit”. (Rev 9:2)

Make up your own mind:

For those who like a good conspiracy theory here is one on Eco-terrorism. As always you need to make up your own mind but there are a number of coincidences (sic) that make one wonder such as:   1. Tsunami bomb developed during and after WW2  2. Stuxnet released in Japan just beforehand 3. Israeli company with Mossad connections provided Fukushima security.

The 3/11 Earthquake in Japan (2011) Was NOT Natural

And then there is the 5G "conspiracy"    The UK column is advertising UK speaking tours warning against 5G. Remember, once again......it is all conspiracy theory.....until it suddenly becomes conspiracy fact:

The Jewish New Year has begun

Sounding the trumpet

Sounding the trumpet

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year, Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset on Sunday, Sept. 29, and ends two days later at sunset on Tuesday, October the first.

Rosh Hashanah marks the start of the Jewish High Holy Days leading up to Yom Kippur. It marks the beginning of the 10 “Days of Awe,” in which Jews focus their attentions on repentance and reflection leading up to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, considered to be holiest day of the Jewish year.   

The Jews blow the trumpet (shofar) on these holy days.  In 1973, when the angel blew the trumpet on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) the nation was attacked.   Divine retribution instead of divine forgiveness.  Yet, many Christians cheered on the nation because it was victorious.  

If we count 28 years (4x7) onward we arrive at the fifth trumpet:

 

Twin Towers smoke

Twin Towers smoke

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss" (Rev 9:1-2).

 

One urban myth sees the face of "Satan" in the smoke (LOL). 

 

John saw a falling star in this vision.  In the second century that star was the false messiah Bar Kochba whose name means the son of a star.   He attempted to to reestablish temple worship and wanted to create an Empire with Parthian (Babylonian support).  It almost took the full might of the Roman Empire to defeat him.  Kochba persecuted Christians and had coins struck bearing his star elevated above the temple. In 2001 we have a repeat pattern.   Another "star"  opened the abyss. 

Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur 2019 will begin in the evening of Tuesday, 8 October and ends in the evening of Wednesday, 9 October. The trumpet is about to sound again.  I believe that we are coming close to the last Trump.  The vials will start to be poured out demanding repentance.  This year ends the super shemita cycle ( http://www.biblaridion.info/html/ch21.html#_edn8 ). That means the fiftieth Jubilee is over. Was there any debt forgiveness?  Is Jerusalem a light on a hill for the nations?  Have the Jews let their good works (Epstein et al) shine forth? 

The Money Power

Coincidental, the Chinese are also on holiday.  As of Tuesday, China will be on vacation for its Golden Week National Holiday and the weakness in the markets appears to be traders front-running the traditional chaos that the rest of the world plays when China leaves the playing field.China will be back in business on October 9th, and that means the Shanghai Gold Exchange, which opened in 2015 to counter Western manipulation of precious metals, will likely help re-balance prices to where they were before this recent take-down.

The Anglo-Zionist money power will be punished.  The Globo-Bosheviks who use climate as a control mechanism will be fried by the sun. All of mankind will be under the cosh in the next seven years.  Jew and Gentile.  We all need to repent.

Look at this

Another website worth investigating. I have not had time to fully research the site but it looks comprehensive. The headlines are links to mainstream newspapers and articles so you can check the validity yourself.   I urge you to make up your own mind.  Many of the stories that I have checked out tend to stack up.

What, no Pharisees?

What have the Israelis got against Pharisees? Apparently they are happy to have Levites in charge and Bibi is planning to appoint a Sadducee (Cohen priest) as replacement. However, this priest is also ex-Mossad...not only does he have a license to pray but one to prey. It is interesting to note that Cohen and Netanyahu share a common trait that affects their role as leaders of Israel. Netanyahu is a Levite and Cohen, as his name implies, is a Kohen (from the priestly caste) which is a subset of the tribe of Levi.  

 

Bibi the Levite

This has been reported in the media:

Israel’s Mossad chief prepares to become Netanyahu’s successor https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20190921-israels-mossad-chief-prepares-to-become-netanyahus-successor/

Mossad chief has an eye on Netanyahu's seat  http://iranpress.com/en/middle_east-i138735-mossad_chief_has_an_eye_on_netanyahu's_seat

 

Levites and Kohens

Well the Levites caused Jacobs name to stink  (Gen 34.30) because of their vengeful and deceptive behavior regarding the covenant of circumcision and the drunken behavior (Lev 10.1-2) of the priests caused the contamination of the Sanctuary that necessitated the introduction of the Day of Atonement.   Jesus knew how to deal with these Sadducees (priests):

"The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him........Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God".  (Matt.22:23-33)

They still do not understand the power of God.  Perhaps (because they deny the resurrection) they will freeze their penises and heads like Epstein wanted to do? Lest we forget, these same priests condemned Jesus to death.   There is nothing holy about them as anyone who followed the Epstein affair should know.  So, Mossad priest or not.....the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Jews and Jesuits

The Jesuits, Society for Jesus or Society for Jews?

Just as Rabbinical Judaism is closely linked with the formation of Islam, so also the Jews featured large in the establishment of the Jesuit movement which formed the "shock-troops" of the Catholic Church. The founder of the movement was a Jew as was the  Jesuit Ribera who wrote a futurist interpretation of the Apocalypse which is often used to disparage any futurist approach. Of course, that is ridiculous because everyone would agree that elements of the Apocalypse are still future otherwise the Messiah would have returned already.   The reason that is often given for the Jesuit-Jew Ribera writing a "futurist" approach is to supposedly prevent the Beast etc from being identified with the Catholic Church. In other words a "futurist" view protects the church.

However, the real reason why Ribera wrote this interpretation was to prevent any identification of the protagonists with the Jews.  Any interpretation that has at least a partial fulfillment in the first and second century has a negative impact on the Jews.  After all, they are called false Jews from the  synagogue of Satan.  It is better then to ignore any reference to the Jews and refer it all to the future.  However, Christians did adapt the notion of animal sacrifice in the millennium which was a Jesuit (aka Jewish) corruption. 

 

As to the Apocalypse - it demonstrates a number of repeat patterns (see the commentary PRITA on this website).   It is neither all in the past nor all in the future and it is certainly not a continuous unfolding of history. The Apocalypse was of uttermost importance to Christians living at the end of the age of Jewish Temple worship in the period AD 70-AD 136.  It is also of immense importance to Christians living at the end of this age where Judaism and temple worship is re-emerging.

 

So, tell me again who the MOTHER OF HARLOTS is?
