"In Search of Isaac's Children"
Part 15 of 32
By Willie Martin
Military Force - Not Love
That was early in the Sixteenth Century and even then there were not wanting indications that should have given pause to a critical mind, but we of the West went on repeating that fond mistake for four centuries, as the missionaries whom we sent to all parts of the world wrote home glowing reports of the number of "hearts" they had "won for Christ." It was only after our enemies' campaign of "anti-colonialism" really got under way that most of us realized that what had won all those hearts was primarily the discipline of British regiments and the manifest power of the White Man.
We now know what happened. On many a shore of Africa, for example, missionaries eager to "win souls for Christ" ventured to land alone, and the aborigines, after mutilating and torturing them for a good communal laugh, ate them, cooked or raw according to the custom of the local cuisine. Usually, a few weeks or a few months later, a British cruiser hove to off shore and lobbed half a dozen 4.5 shells into the native village, and, if not pressed for time, landed half a company of marines to beat the bushes and drag out a dozen or so savages to hang on convenient trees. Consequently the tribe, if not very obtuse, took the hint and respected the next bevy of missionaries as some how representing the god of thunder and lightning. And if the men of God distributed enough free rice and medical care with their sermons, they were able to make "converts," as the natives learned to utter the words that Christian Missionaries like to hear.
White Missionaries Murdered
That is, in essence, the whole history of "winning souls" among the heathens - the non-white races of the world. There were, of course, many local variations. If the first missionaries were preceded by troops or White Settlers, the Blacks had already been convinced of the virtues of Christian rifles and had learned White Men should not be regarded as esculent comestibles. It often happened, however, that the natives, even after many years of preaching and conversion, rejected the White Man's odd rites very emphatically, and a fresh supply of missionaries were needed.
In 1905, for example, the Maji-Maji conspiracy in Tangnyika murdered all the missionaries and almost all the White Men and White Women in the entire territory, and it required a German regiment and several companies of marines to restore the teaching of the Gospel. That was done by giving some forty or fifty thousand demonstrations that a Mauser bullet could penetrate even a Black hide that had been carefully anointed with the grease of a boiled baby.
This same scenario still happens today in Africa. As can be seen by carefully watching the newspaper stories. However, the Christian Missionaries did teach a ritual and often inculcated a superstition that had some superficial substance of Christianity, but they might as well have followed the example of St. Francis and preached sermons to the birds. That is why the many, many thousands of devoted Christians who expended their whole lives to "save souls" built only an edifice of cardboard and tinsel that is now gone in the wind.
Christianity Is Bewildering To Primitive Natives
What the vanishing of that flimsy facade has made obvious was predictable from the first. The religion of the West has never been comprehensible to the rudimentary minds of the Congoids, Capoids, and Australoids: races so primitive that they were incapable of inventing a wheel and even of using one without supervision races that could not develop for themselves even the first and simplest preliminaries of a civilization. Even though they pre-dated the Adamic White Man by thousands of years.
When the missionaries invented systems of writing the crude languages of the primitives, they had also to invent words to express such concepts as "God," "soul," "justice," "morality," and "religion" invent them by either creating new words or by perverting to such meanings sounds in the native jargons conveyed impressions that were faintly and remotely analogous.
That fact alone should have made us think. It was clear, furthermore, that the so-called "converts" even those who had been most thoroughly imbued with an awe of the god of repeating rifles and locomotives, would conform to the White Man's morality only under coercion, and that whenever they escaped from the White Man's supervision they "Always" spontaneously reverted, not only to their own mores, but also to whatever form of voodoo they had practiced before the White Man came.
Even if earlier experience had not been conclusive, what happened in Haiti at the very beginning of the Nineteenth Century should have removed the last lingering doubt. But the missionaries did not learn, and the "Ladies' Missionary Society" went on contributing their mites, plying their needles, and glowing with tender emotion for the sweet little savages depicted by their romantic imaginations.
Although it is true that in some places in the former colonial possessions missionaries are still tolerated, if they are obsequious to the natives and pay very well, we have at last learned that the Gospel follows the British regiments in the White Man's ignominious and insane retreat from the world that was his.
(Taken in part from a pamphlet by Revelo Oliver)
Second: While the Holy Bible is, generally speaking, as we have said, the Book of the Race of Adam; It is more particularly the family history of one man within the White Adamic Race. This particular man is Abraham. Beginning in Genesis Twelve through the remainder of the Bible the narrative of the Holy Scripture deals with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel, Joseph and his two sons, in other words about the thirteen tribes of Israel. Abraham was a direct descendant of Adam. (35)
Abraham was a descendant of Shem [the father of all Semitic peoples], and he was also a Hebrew, being descended from Heber. (36) The Hebrews were White, they were Semitic and are racially classified as Nordic. The Bible, beginning in Genesis Twelve, becomes the Story of Adam, his family and how God purposed to bless all the other families of nations (37) descended from White Adamic Man and ultimately all creation [including other races]. (38)
The principal subject of the Bible is Abraham and his family of White Nations, all now identified on the world stage as America, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Scandinavia, Greenland, Western Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Rhodesia and a few other places scattered over the earth. Not only is the Bible the Book of the Race of the White Man, but more particularly, it is the family record of the Anglo-Saxon Race as descended through Isaac. Other Adamic Peoples and Nations are discussed and included in the Bible Narrative.
At this point in our study, we can now return to Genesis 49 and attempt to identify the nations of Israel as they exist in these, the latter days.
Reuben: The firstborn, was Jacob's strength, but because he defiled his father's bed (39), he was not to excel. (40) As an Israel nation Reuben is probably Belgium.
Simeon and Levi: They are one of a kind; instruments of cruelty will be their habitations (They were the two that slaughtered the city of Hamor in Genesis 34, for Dinah's, their sisters', honor). "Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel" (41) This is exactly what did happen. To read a capsule account of the Bible destiny of Simeon. (42)
The sons of Levi became the Levites, or administrators of Israel. After the exodus from Egypt, Moses became the "lawgiver" or, patriarch of the Levites. Aaron, Moses' brother, was the patriarch of the Levitical priesthood. The Levites never received any land inheritance, but were to be provided with their living from the tithes of the other tribes. (43)
The Old Testament tithe was the modern day equivalent of taxes. In God-ordained government your taxes would be 10% of your gain. The Levites [administrators of our government] would then give 10% of this tithe to the priests for their duties. This is explained in Numbers 18:25-28. This comes as quite a shock to many, for they have been told that they should give 10% to the church, because "God" requires the tithe to be given to the church. Of course you may give whatever you desire, to the church, but don't be fooled into believing that God ordained it! Just to give you an idea how far America has departed from God-ordained government, did you know that Americans pay, on average, over 70% of their earnings to direct and indirect taxes? Do our "Levites" then give 10% of that to our churches?
Are you kidding! Now that we have brought that up let me tell you a little story and you make of it what you will. A few years ago on one of the TV channels, there appeared a woman made up like the Bride of Frankenstein and a diminutive little man who appeared to be a cross between Soupy Sales and Ringo Starr were handing a telephone directory-sized book to Israeli Foreign Minister and Stern Terror Gang Alumnus Yitzak Shamir. The pair turned out to be the Cinderella-couple of electronic money-divining, Jim and Tammy Bakker [A Jew]. It seems that for a fee [and a steep one], members of the Bakkers' "PTL" TV congregation had their names engraved in a special "book of testimony" to "Israel," which was then presented with much televised fanfare and copious tears of joy from Tammy, to St. Yitzak.
Since that emotion-laden moment of a few years back, the Bakkers have produced as gaudy a monument to mammon, conspicuous consumption and all the other horrors Jesus Christ opposed, as the American South has witnessed. Popularly referred to as a "Christian Disneyland" and by Jerry Falwell as "fulfilling a genuine need," it would take a Mencken or a Twain such as this writer is not, to take full advantage of all the opportunities for derision such a 14-carat hypocrisy exhibits.
For a time the Bakkers' crazed combination of naked Khazar worship, imitation of afternoon, secular-TV, cooking and talk-show line-ups on their PTL nationwide satellite system, and "no fuss," "low fat" Jesus gospel, reaped big benefits. These included hundreds of millions of dollars in donations and an instant architectural folly in Carolina known as "Heritage USA," which rivaled the beach cities of Florida and California for unbridled growth and gargantuan for its own sake. But they have been brought low and their so-called ministry has been destroyed for the time being.
There's an old folk saying that states, "The bigger the Front, the bigger the back," and the back of Mr. and Mrs. Bakker's huge Front began to unravel when Tammy Fay checked into the elite Betty Ford Clinic in California earlier this year  to dry out from a few years too many of pill-popping. Interesting that she chose Betty Ford when her own church ran a well-staffed drug rehabilitation clinic of its own.
Perhaps from the outset it was understood that such facilities were for the lumpen proletariat and that true-glitch celebrities such as Linda, Liz and Tammy went cold-turkey at posher pads. Soon after that revelation, husband Jim's tryst with a church secretary came to the fore along with allegations by rival Reverend John Ankenberg that Preacher Jim not only consorted with prostitutes but had played Adam to someone else's Steve from 1978 to this year.
None of this would be worth more than a passing chuckle and the assignment to the weird shelf of Northern Gothic - that strange amalgamation known for its power to alternately repel, fascinate and endear with its garish enshrinement of "bigger and better," primal passions and raveups and vestiges of tent-show America. Lurking behind this prodigious and uniquely American hokum is something more deadly by far. Bakker may have been the closest to a clown in a fraternity consisting of politicians Jerry Falwell, "Pat" Robertson and hell-fire and brimstone preacher Jimmy Swaggart.
But clown or crown-prince of the hop-skip-and-jump school of Biblical hermeneutics known as Schofield Dispensationalism, these "Ministers" have had an inordinate influence on a generation of Americans in the Bible Belt, who have been led to regard the Zionist state of Israel, which was founded by atheistic Communist Jews, with no blood connection to the people of the Old Testament, as the literal army of God upon earth.
Mr. Bakker has played as great a part as any in furnishing the bucks and the boobs to keep Zionism's war-machine on the march. His appeal was to the soft underbelly of the WASP underclass, people who want the world and Jesus too and cannot accept Rev. Falwell's comparative intellectual rigor or Rev. Swaggart's stiffnecked, bayou philo-Zionism. Jim and Tammy were Sonny and Cher making out that it with God's stamp of approval. A strong combination, if it were true.
According to recent figures, Rev. Swaggart's take is now (up to the time he got caught fooling around with a whore) up to almost $140 million per year. Falwell and Bakker were not far behind and Presidential candidate "Pat" Robertson has exceeded that figure. Beyond this blatant buck-huckstering lies the complete denial of 1 John 2:22: "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." Which literally places the Zionist-loving TV evangelists in the league with liars and the antichrist. The very root of the difficulty lies in the theology of C.I. Scofield [a Jew], a man who was regarded as a heretic in the nineteenth century but whose Biblical marginalia is placed on a par with Scripture itself, by the millions who study the Scofield Reference Bible today. Scofield's theology was essentially Zionist, anticipating the contemporary "Rapture" movement which actually tries to force and speedup Christ's return by embroiling themselves in occult Talmudism and sectarian strife in the Middle East. Central to this hocus-pocus is the hastening of the rebuilding of the Temple of Herod [who was an Edomite], often called the Temple of Solomon. No one knows for sure where the Temple once stood, but Israeli myth has decreed that the site is located where now stands the Dome of the Rock, the third holiest shrine in Islam.
Followers of TV evangelists are financing the attacks on the Temple Mount site, as it's known, in the deliberate hope of sparking a bloody religious war which could instigate World War III, Armageddon and the Second Coming. Thus denying the Scriptures! This little scenario could be relegated to a dizzy porch-stoop after a long Saturday night in a tavern, were it not for the fact that politicians and millionaires in the U.S. and Israel are backing the scheme to the hilt. With each passing month, Scofield Dispensationlists delve deeper into a mess of kabbalistic superstition and occultism linked to the Temple project.
For example, of late they are spending huge sums in a frantic search for the "kalal," an earthen vessel in which priests reportedly hid the ashes of a red heifer after the Temple's destruction in 70 A.D. Completely ignoring the fact, Christ came to put an end to blood-sacrifices, the so-called un-Godly "Christian Zionists" are helping to pay support to Zionist priests preparing to reintroduce animal sacrifices when the Temple is rebuilt out of the ashes of an Arab-Israeli War. The ashes of the red heifer must be found in the kalal, "Ministers" say, because the "Levitical Priesthood" will be unfit to offer sacrifices in the Temple until they have been purified by the sprinkling of the holy water which is to contain the ancient heifer-ashes. Christ's mission was to spare us such rituals. With Jesus having forever negated the need for Old Testament propitiation, the so-called Dispensationlists have defied Him and degenerated into dabbling in the occult in association with a religion which condemns Christ as a false prophet. In fact this will be the "abomination that maketh desolate" spoken of by Daniel the prophet. (44) And by Matthew and Mark. (45)
The spectacle of men and women in $800 three-piece suits who claim to believe that Jesus Is Lord even as they frantically scour the deserts of Palestine in search of kabbalistic pottery, is perhaps the ultimate lunacy in this theater of the absurd. The Jim and Tammy Bakker sideshow is not unusual for having as its principals two pious con-artists of some skill. Fielding, Hawthorne, Moliere and Sinclair Lewis have shown that history is rich in such scoundrels.
Grace Halsell in her important "Prophecy and Politics" has proved the same insight in our time. What is no doubt instructive is that the dimestore hirelings strike so responsive a chord in the American people. "They build up the antichrist Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity. The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet they will lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? None evil can come upon us."
Can there be any doubt, these are the type of antichrist "Ministers" and teachers spoken of in the following verses: "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." (46); "...many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (47); "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not... Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices... Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness... For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage." (48)
The mis-identification of East European Khazars with the people of the Bible and the attempt to identify Zionist-Israel with Christianity. Underscores the Scriptural distortion that lies at the heart of so-called "Christian-Zionism," (For there is no such thing as a "Christian Zionist") the complete misreading of the Abrahamic Covenant, which states "I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee." But America has been "blessing" the Zionist state with billions of tax dollars, armaments, equipment and political favors for nearly forty years and at no time in our entire nation have we been so cursed; socially, politically and morally.
Could it be that in joining the empty chorus of a gang of eternal usurpers, as condemned in Micah: "The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us?..." (49)
Now back to where we left off, we were talking about taxes, and we left off where a question was being presented. What about separation of church and state? Yes, my Christian friend, there is no separation of church and state in a God-ordained government. There is separation only of duties, not of funding. Are we in "bondage" today to a tyrannical group of "Levites?" Not really. We are in bondage because God has put us in bondage!
We, as a nation, have forsaken our heritage initiated by our founding fathers. We have, in effect, despised our birthright for "a mess of red pottage." The red pottage is fast becoming national socialism. Our nation is embracing the "ways of the heathen." Our leaders have acquiesced to all ten points of the Communist Manifesto! This may be quite a shock to some of you, but it's a fact. You may well ask, How could our leaders be so dumb? Actually, God caused it to happen. Perhaps you'll recall the old adage: "People get the kind of leaders they deserve?" This is a Bible of principle, if you'll just take the time to read Deuteronomy 28.
In the first 14 verses God lists the blessings that would come on an Israel nation if they obey his commands. In the last 54 verses he lists the curses that will come if that nation disobeys. If these curses aren't what's happened to America in the last 70 years, then I will eat this book. Let me cite a couple of examples of what our leaders would be, and what they would do to us. "And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee." (50)
As our leaders grope for solutions to our problems, what are the results? Have they solved them? No. The problems continue to get worse. Another vivid example of what would happen: "The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him; he shall be the head and thou shalt be the tail." (51)
This is a perfect description of our un-Scriptural, debt-usury, money system. It is operated under the authority of our government, by a group of foreign bankers. Its misnomer is the "Federal Reserve System." All "created credit" by this private group of commercial banks comes into existence as an interest-bearing debt instrument. No interest is ever created to pay off the interest rate, thereby guaranteeing boom/bust cycles. Please forgive me for the continuing interruptions of the original intent of this; but I believe it to be so very important to point out some things I believe will be of interest to you, whom I believe to be a person, a Bible Student, if you will, and having the diligence in the study of God's Word to understand.
Any Bible student who studies God's Word knows that this present age will end in what is known as the Day of the Lord. There has been a lot of speculation as to when this day will begin. What we need is a reference point from the Bible, to an event that would precede this day. Therefore, with that in mind let's look at a reference point found in Malachi: "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." (52) We know that John the Baptist was the Elijah that was to come, because Jesus said he was: "For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias [Elijah], which was for to come." (53)
Now, we must see what occurrence happened in the history of America [Israel] that would be a fulfillment of prophecies of Elijah. For you to understand what we are talking about, we must look at what Elijah did. We read in, 1 Kings 17:1 that Elijah was to tell Ahab that: "...As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word." We know that this period of no dew or rain was three years and six months, according to James 5:17. We also know from numerous Bible sources that judgment will begin first at the house of the Lord.
As we have already seen the House of the Lord - here near the end of the age - is the daughter of Jerusalem. (54) And the nation that fulfills this prophecy to the letter is the U.S.A. Knowing this, we can then scan America's past and see if she has ever been afflicted with a period of 3 � years of drought.
One doesn't have to go back very far to find this period. In fact, there are many alive today that lived through this period. It was called the "dust bowl" days of the Great Depression, which occurred in the early 1930's. It was not only a drought of rain, but also a dearth of money. For the Federal Reserve dried up the money supply by 25%. Thus inflicting a double whammy, and causing widespread unemployment and poverty. If this assessment is correct... we now have a reference point to look for the fulfillment of the other end-time prophecies. The opening salvo that will initiate the Day of the Lord is the final demise of Babylon.
So, if our interpretation of time is correct, and the early 1930's marked the coming of Elijah's prophecy, we should see the beginning death throes of Babylon. Well, lo and behold, in 1933 President Roosevelt took America off the Gold Standard. This removal of our currency from the world-wide standard fulfilled the seven times of Babylon's limited control as recorded in. (55)
If you will read Daniel 2:31-38, you'll see that Babylon was the head of gold of Nebuchadnezzar's vision. In other words, the strength of his kingdom was derived from gold. And by using this gold he would momentarily control all nations during his reign. Then in chapter 4 of Daniel, we see that Nebuchadnezzar had another dream which Daniel interpreted for him and us. The dream was that a great tree grew in the midst of the earth: "The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth [obviously exalted and with world-wide influence]: The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all: the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it. I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and, behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven; He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit: let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches: Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth: Let his heart be changed from man's, and let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him. This... is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones; to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men." (56)
Notice: Here again, in verse 17, that it's God who gives the control of kingdoms [governments] to men. And sets up the basest of men in that control. Now, continuing on in verse 22 of this same chapter, Daniel tells Nebuchadnezzar: "It is thou, O king, that art grown and become strong: for thy greatness is grown, and reacheth unto heaven, and thy dominion to the end of the earth."
Then, in verse 23, Daniel says that Babylon's kingdom would be hewed down, but a watered stump would remain with a band of iron and brass fastened around the stump. This means: that Babylon would never be a world power again, but would remain on the earth in a restricted capacity. As we know, gold-backed money in America was just that until 1933.
To arrive at how many years "seven times" is, we must compare Revelation 12: verses 6 and 14. In verse 6, the symbolic woman [Israel] fled into the wilderness for 1260 days. Then in verse 14 we read that this is considered a time, and times, and a half time. Figuring a "time" as 360 days, or years - according to the day-year calculation of Numbers 14:34 and "times" as the doubling of "time," or 720 day-years, it follows then that a "half-time" is 180 day-years. By adding all numbers, we arrive at 360+720+180 = 1260 day-years. God's day-year computation also has a second witness in Ezekiel 4:6, if you care to double check it. Seven "times" passing over Babylon would then mean 7 X 360 = 2520 years that she would be allowed to remain a "watered stump."
Knowing that America's association with the "watered stump" ended in 1933, we can then figure out fairly close when the final destruction of "Mystery Babylon" will be in our day and age. The use of the term "Mystery Babylon" doesn't occur in the Bible until Revelation 17. I believe this "mystery" began when gold-backed money went out of fashion. What took its place was the "mystery."
Very few people understand how the money manipulators of fiat currency can control set in motion boom/bust cycles through the expansion and contraction of the "money" supply. It's done so that the money changers can aggrandize to themselves the wealth of the people without the people knowing it.
Isaiah 10:13-14, is the Lord's description of how they do it. I recommend that you read all of Isaiah 10:5-27, because it says God is using this prophetic money power... to do the Lord's bidding. What will defeat this power, is the Assyrian's statement: "By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent." (57)
God willing, if we are correct in this so far, we should be able to calculate fairly close when the final demise of Babylon will be, that ancient fall occurred when Belshazzar - Nebuchadnezzar's son - was ruling. This is recorded in Daniel 5. Unfortunately, we are not told how much time elapsed between the "seven times" prophecy of the "watered stump," and the final demise of Belshazzar. If we knew that... it would be easy to calculate when "Mystery" Babylon will be destroyed. What we do know is that it's a period of time of less than 70 years. We know that because Daniel made the "seven times" prophecy to Nebuchadnezzar, and also interpreted the Handwriting on the Wall to his son Belshazzar within the time frame of no more than 70 years; and probably much less. You see, 70 years was the total elapsed time that Judah was in the Babylonian captivity. Now let's go on to the Handwriting on the Wall and see if we can close in a little more on when this occurred.
In Daniel 5:25-26, we find out the word "MeNe" was doubled. This doubling was God's numbering of the "days" that Babylon's rule would remain in the earth. Now by looking up the word "MeNe" in the Concordance (#4484), we find it's a Chaldean word. In the Old Testament, Hebrew and Chaldean words have the same symbols for numbers.
They correspond to our modern Arabic figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. In place of numbers, the Hebrews, Chaldeans, and even the Greeks in the New Testament, used letters of their alphabet for numbering. In this particular case, using Panin's values of Hebrew and Chaldean words, the doubling of the word "MeNe" stands for 2524 years. So, simply put, 2524 years from this Handwriting on the Wall Babylon will completely be destroyed. In verse 30-31, of this same chapter, we read: "In that very night Belshazzar was slain, and Darius the Median took the kingdom..."
Now according to Halley's Bible Handbook, page 725, this happened in 536 B.C. If this date is correct, and we emphasize if... the final destruction of Babylon will begin to take place in 1988. Another witness that would seem to confirm this is what Christ said concerning the parable of the fig tree in Luke 21:29-32. To show you that the fig tree is Bible symbolism for the usurious nation of Jewry, I'll have to give you a few references. First off, read Jeremiah 24:2-10, to confirm that "figs" and Judah are synonymous. The scribes and Pharisees were the leaders of Jewry during Jesus' time. [This is still true today]. They were condoning the practice of the "art" of debt-usury and money manipulation that their predecessors had learned while in the Babylonian captivity. It is vital to our study to know that it was the bad figs of Jewry that brought back to Judah this practice. It was manifest even in Nehemiah's day, and is recorded in Nehemiah 5.
You should read all of Nehemiah 5, to see just how encumbering this practice was at that time. I'll quote some of the more pertinent verses to show you the context of the chapter: "And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews." (58); "Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth [The dearth wasn't drought but a lack of money]. There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king's tribute [taxes], and that upon our lands and vineyards." (59)
Does this have a familiar ring to our situation today? Now the last part of verse 7, and the first part of verse 8: "...Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them. And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren... which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer." (60)
Now that we've shown you debt-usury was a way of life to Jewry long before Jesus, we can begin to appreciate some of Jesus' rebukes of the scribes and Pharisees in his day. One excellent example of this is in Mark 11:13-22. It's an allegory of the fig tree, i.e., Jewry. In verse 13, Jesus is passing a fig tree. He notices that it bears no fruit. He then curses the fig tree in verse 14. Immediately following this curse, Jesus entered into the temple at Jerusalem and overthrew the tables [records] of the moneychangers, and the seats of the merchants. [Compare this to who is lamenting Babylon's fall in Revelation 18]: "Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves." (61); "And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her..." (62)
Note the long range implication of this rebuke, and its national message [That the Jews had made God's house a house of thieves]. Also note in the next verse who wanted to put him to death for what He had done. Now let's go down to verses 20 and 21, and notice what has happened to the "fig tree" the following morning. Yes, it was withered away from the roots up. The lesson is clear. When the Lord finally casts out our "moneychangers" the life of the modern day "fig tree" will also die, because it's from money manipulation that Jewry has always maintained its power base. Now let's look at Luke 21:29-32, and see why this is a second witness to the time of Babylon's fall. "And he spake to them a parable; Behold a fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled."
In other words, what Jesus was saying is that when you see the "fig tree" [the misnomer Jewish-Zionist state of Israel] setting leaves, [or, is still young] that this generation [period of 40 years] will not pass away till the Kingdom of God is come.
The Israeli nation of Jewry was established in the year 1948. Adding 40 years, which is a generation, would again bring us to the year of 1988. There's little doubt also of the time of the year. For as Jesus said, All trees are setting buds. It would be reasonable to assume that our deliverance will correspond to the 14th of Nisan, and the redemption from Egypt.
No doubt we'll be criticized for making this prediction. But we'll remind you that we're not predicting the return of Christ. It's plainly written that of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but the Father only. (63) The end of Babylon is not concealed from us, as long as we can compute the dates that. The only problem we have is the authenticity of ancient dates. It's easy to compute dates after prophecies have been fulfilled.
The key is knowing the accurate dates to compute from. What we believe will be the key to finding out if 1988 is the correct date... is the one other prophesy that must be fulfilled. Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 5:24: "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
As this book is being written. The prophecy is that peace and safety will prevail before the destruction. This must happen. And it will, without question, be an arms agreement between the U.S. and the Soviets. "...I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." (64)
Now that the stage has been set let's briefly identify the True Nation of Israel, and to do that we must have a Bible measuring rod [further proof will be provided in a later chapter]. That "rod" is Deuteronomy 28. We know this to be case because of God's statement in the following verses: "Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever." (65)
We've already read how America has received the curse of debt-usury money to fulfill verses 43 and 44; and how the Lord gives us bumbling leaders in verse 29. Now let's examine this chapter a little more, and see if we can identify more of America's plagues.
Disease and Pestilence
These plagues are covered in verses 21-22, 27, 35 and 59-60. The "botch of Egypt" in verse 27, is believed to be cancer. Verse 35 is a description of arthritis.
Falling Birth Rates and Abortion Murder Mills
This is covered in verses 18 and 62-63. Notice in verse 63, that the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought. It certainly doesn't sound like the God preached in today's churches does it?
Humanism Taught In Our Schools
This is promised in verses 32 and 41. I'd be willing to bet that you didn't know that this is a curse from God. Right?
Aliens [within and without]
The Bible is full of examples of how God uses the aliens to afflict his people when they are in disobedience. Aliens are prophetically called thorns, briers and various kinds of worms. Verses 33-34, 38-39, 42 and 48-51, are vivid descriptions of how the aliens will suck up our sustenance and leave us destroyed. Some good examples of this is how the Communist Nations are given our grain, beef and technology on loan arrangements that are never repaid.
Eventually the debt is forgotten, or forgiven. And who can deny that the current pestilence of AIDS is the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38:22 against the invaders of America [Israel], as it is almost exclusively, in spite of what is reported in the news media, against the following: Queers, Drug users, Jews, Mexicans and Blacks. The only times it is contracted by anyone else is by blood transfusions or by those men or women who have sexual contact with those who have the disease themselves. Another example is the generations of welfare recipients that dwell in our inner cities. They consume the tribute of the taxpayers who are squeezed by the bureaucrats to ensure the pillage continues under the guise of "humanitarianism."
The Lord promised in verse 1, that if the people of Israel would obey His laws, He would set them high above all nations of the earth. Part of that promise was recorded in verse 7: He said their enemies that would rise up against them would be smitten before their face. And that the enemies would flee before them seven ways. The Lord also promised (verse 25) that if they wouldn't observe His laws, that they would be smitten by their enemies, and flee seven ways from before them. The Vietnam debacle is the fulfillment of this promise.
The Lord uses his "locusts" [IRS] to make sure his plagues are carried out. Mention of the "locusts" is in verses 38 & 42. To prove to yourself that these "locusts" are the Lord's army, which he has sent, I suggest you read Joel 2:22, 25. This is God's promise of restoration after the "locusts" have done their job.
Failing Farms and Industry
The wealth of any nation comes from the ground. And agriculture is the backbone of a nation's economy. God has definite laws governing agriculture, and violation of those laws will bring disaster. Most notable of these laws is the land Sabbath laws of Leviticus 25. Violation of the land Sabbath laws is so serious to the Lord that He promises to pluck the land from those that will not observe the Sabbath rest law.
Read Leviticus 26:32-35, for an explanation of why we are seeing so many farm forecloses. Of course, there are many more violations of God's laws that come into play within agriculture today. Included in that list are:
(1) Hybrid seed, which violates Leviticus 19:19.All of these trespasses are compounded by borrowing the money through usury to further deepen the final catastrophe. The failure of agriculture will send shock waves and have a ripple effect through the industrial complexes of the rest of the nation. The continuing demise of organized labor is just one example. Industry is calling for, and getting, wage concessions to compete in what is called the "world market."
(2) Chemical farming, which causes the plague of Deuteronomy 28:23.
(3) Lusting after another's land, a direct violation of the 10th Commandment of Deuteronomy 5:21.
The Lord is deceiving our leaders to believe that "free trade" will save us, when the reality is that "free trade" will destroy the standard of living of the country, as any perceptive mind can see. Of course this is beyond our leaders' perception, because the Lord is using "free trade" to bring us low, just as he promised.
One of the most detrimental acts; an act which is clearly evident to those who will only look, which is helping to destroy our beloved America, is international commerce! Yet, our people have been led to believe by traitorous leaders that commerce is good and wonderful. Instead of the tool of destruction Satan is using in his never ending efforts to destroy God's people, the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred peoples of the word. Yes the so-called Christian Nations of the Western World, of whom the United States, the New Jerusalem spoken of in the scriptures; the home of the Kingdom of God when Christ comes to take over His rightful place as the ruler of the earth, are being destroyed by international commerce and because of the culpability of the media, our people cannot see what is happening.
Michaleis in his Commentary on Laws of Moses, Article 39, pointed out the extreme indifference of Moses toward foreign or maritime commerce. To some of the politicians of our day, this will seem little short of remarkable. Yet there is obvious some erroneous ideas lies at the bottom of their amazement. For when they observe the wealth acquired, in recent years, by Japan and Germany, through foreign trade; which is so striking, many are apt to think commerce alone is the true source of national prosperity, and that it is the greatest benefit which a legislator can confer upon his constitutes.
The mere mention of the name "commerce" fascinates their imagination and seems to make them incapable of sound and sober reflection and comparison. In the stupor and delirium of their dreams of vast wealth and power they are totally oblivious to the fact that commerce is proving to be the ruin of both public and private prosperity; the approaching destruction of our beloved country, as too many superfluous commodities are imported, and America is plunged into the mire of foreign indebtedness.
The main cause of this over valuation of commerce, as compared to agriculture is; those of agriculture are reserved and modest; seldom coming to the public notice [unless something stops the food from getting to their grocery shelves], whereas those of commerce lie upon the surface and are more open to general observation.
Japan appears to be the most commercial nation on earth today. Her trade with the United States is enormous; yet the entire annual movement of this commerce both ways would pale in insignificance to that of agriculture were in not for the action of those in government to destroy America's power. Commercial pursuits are unstable and are drastically effected to changes, in the international markets; whereas agricultural are solid and much less effected by international whelms. The prizes in commerce are few; when one individual or company rises hundreds sink into oblivion and ruin.
The physical and moral influences of commerce and agriculture is almost indescribable. Where agriculture is both mother and father of health, industry, temperance, cheerfulness, friendliness, and frugality; of simple manners, pure and strong morals; of patriotism and domestic virtues and above all that sturdy independence, without which a man is not a man; but becomes feminine and is the slave or servant [Is not America becoming a servant nation?] the plaything of the anti-Christs and heathens. Agriculture produces and cherishes a spirit of equality and sympathy. Buying and selling are the chief business of cities, where the giving and receiving of wages an hourly or daily transaction. It produces a collision of interests and feelings, which of necessity checks the feeling of sympathy. International commerce creates immorality, indifference, apathy, crime, drug abuse; in other words everything that is evil and anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Christian and anti-American. The goals of Satan. Agriculture strengthens love of country, racial pride. The heart of the farmer and rancher is tied to the fields and pastures, where he bestows his love and labor, which responds in turn to his work by clothing itself in beauty and riches beyond measure. More especially when possessions have come down through a long line of honored ancestors, which strengthens even more the attachment he feels to his home and country. Agriculture produces the highest degree of conservation in its nature and every action.
It is a great antagonist of that Satanic spirit of liberalism, radicalism and revolutionary innovations, which is the greatest enemy of Christian institutions which was observed long ago by Aristotle, who stated: "Husbandry is the best stuff of a commonwealth, such a one being the most devoted to liberty, and the least subject to innovation or turbulence." It is in the occupation of the rural life, that ones mind is the most tranquil, sober and unclouded by media hype. It is in such an atmosphere, one can most clearly discern the relations of things; to look beyond the spur of the moment, the events of a day. It is from the country, from the land free nations have drawn many of their greatest leaders and patriots.
An Israelite farmer was summoned from the quiet of farm life on the distant plains of Midian, to become the lawgiver and founder of a mighty republic. It was an American farmer who led the first American army to victory, and secured for his grateful and admiring countrymen [with God's help], the blessings of liberty, independent self- government: A Republican Christian Nation! Our American government and American people should follow Moses and give no encouragement to international or maritime commerce because:
1). International Commerce tends to counteract the first and highest principles of Christianity, morality and honesty.
2). International Commerce entices too many of our citizens and industry to leave America and settle in foreign lands. It weakens patriotism and causes them to eventually betray the trust and best interests of the United States. It causes them to become, in a sense, a citizen of the world with no love or affection for the country of their birth.
3). International Commerce introduces luxurious tastes and habits, such as drug addiction and perversion. The bad effects of commerce for outweighing the good.
4). International Commerce makes enemies between nations with common ancestors. Such as the wars between England and France; England and Spain; France and Spain; United States and Germany and etc.
5). It drains off a nations wealth; just as it has the United States. Once the richest nation ever known in the history of the world. Now, since its leaders have betrayed their trust and have led America down the International Maritime Commerce path to destruction. Except God and Christ intervenes.
6). International Commerce is condemned in the scriptures, Chapter 18 of the Book of Revelation is a ringing indictment against it. In verse four God's people are admonished to not participate; to come out of her.However, we should point out, there is one form of commerce which is beneficial to America and its people: That is internal commerce. Which made America rich and powerful in the first place! You can blame anyone you like - just like Adam and Eve - for America's debacle, but the truth is that our problems stem from the violations of God's Laws. We, as a nation, have sown the wind, and we shall reap the whirlwind. (66)
