"In Search of Isaac's Children"

60). Israel is the nation appointed to bring Glory to God.

"But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant, I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the Lord and thy redeemer, the Holy one of Israel. Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the Lord, and SHALT GLORY IN THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL." (499); "Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no savior. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand; I will work, and who shall let it? Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships. I am the Lord, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King. Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; and shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink TO MY PEOPLE, MY CHOSEN. THIS PEOPLE HAVE I FORMED FOR MYSELF; THEY SHALL SHEW FORTH MY PRAISE." (500); "Sing, O ye heavens; for the Lord hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, AND GLORIFIED HIMSELF IN ISRAEL." (501); "And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O ISRAEL, IN WHOM I WILL BE GLORIFIED." (502)

61). The Promised Nation to be a Republic.

"And I WILL RESTORE THY JUDGES AS AT THE FIRST, AND THY COUNSELLORS AS AT THE BEGINNING: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city." (503); "And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor [President] shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the Lord." (504); "Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and APPOINT THEMSELVES ONE HEAD [President], and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel." (505)

"One head," -- President -- appointed -- Elected -- by the people, governors, judges and counsellors taken from the masses of the people are particularly promised, BUT NO KING; BECAUSE CHRIST IS OUR KING!

Peter Marshall and David Manuel in their book "The Light and The Glory" put it this way: "In like spirit, the new year of 1773 was rung in by the men... 'Death,' they proclaimed unanimously on the first of January, 'is more eligible than slavery. A freeborn people are not required by the religion of Jesus Christ to submit to tyranny, and may make use of such power as God has given them to recover and support their laws and liberties... [We] implore the Ruler above the skies, that He would make bare His arm in defense of His Church and people, and let Israel go.' It is interesting to note that a pivotal change had taken place in American rhetoric: no longer were the exhortations coming exclusively from the pulpits and a few zealous 'patriots'; the broad mass of the people themselves had taken up the torch and were carrying it forward on their own. And now even a governor, Jonathan Trumbull of Connecticut, spoke out openly in defense of freedom: 'It is hard to break connections with our mother country, but when she strives to enslave us, the strictest union must be dissolved... 'The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitudes of isles be glad thereof,' the accomplishment of such noble prophecies is at hand.'

But most Crown-appointed governors remained submitted to their king, and one wrote to the Board of Trade in England: 'If you ask an American, who is his master? He will tell you he has none, nor any governor but Jesus Christ.' Which may have given rise to the cry which was soon passed up and down the length of America by the Committees of Correspondence: 'NO KING BUT KING JESUS!'"

So, the dawn broke on the year 1775. The nation responded as one body to the ringing words of Patrick Henry's famous speech, given on March 23 in the Virginia House of Burgesses: "Mr. President: It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of the siren until she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who having eyes see not, and having hears hear not the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and to provide for it.

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British Ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which our petition has been lately received?

Trust it not, it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation -- the last arguments to which kings resort. I say, gentlemen, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission?

Can you assign any other possible motive for it? Has Britain any enemy in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British Ministry have been so long foraging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, deceive ourselves longer.

Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned, we have remonstrated, we have supplicated, we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the Ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned with contempt from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation.

There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free, if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained -- we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us! They tell us, sir, that we are weak -- unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power. Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone.

THERE IS A JUST GOD WHO PRESIDES OVER THE DESTINIES OF NATIONS; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged; their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable -- and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come! It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, peace; but there is no peace. The war is actually begun. The next gale that sweeps from the North will bring to our ears the clashing of resounding arms. Our brethren are already in the field. Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

Just prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence our Fore Fathers faced with the death penalty for high treason, even though they were courageous men, they debated long before they picked up the quill pen to sign the parchment that declared the independence of the colonies from the mother country. For many hours they debated in the State House at Philadelphia, with the lower chamber doors locked and a guard posted - when suddenly a voice rang out from the balcony. A burst of eloquence to the keynote, it was Patrick Henry giving a second speech which has been deleted from our American History Books. To be sure there had been several speeches. In the balcony patriotic citizens crowded all available space and listened attentively to the proceedings. Jefferson expressed himself with great vigor; and John Adams, of Boston, spoke with great strength.

The Philadelphia printer, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, quiet and calm as usual, spoke his mind with well chosen words. The delegates hovered between sympathy and uncertainty as the long hours of the summer day crept by, for life in sweet when there is danger of losing it. The lower doors were locked and a guard was posted to prevent further interruptions. It was then, according to Jefferson, late in the afternoon before the delegates gathered their courage to the sticking point. The talk was about axes, scaffolds, and the gibbet, when suddenly the strong, bold voice of Patrick Henry rang out and said: "Gibbet! They may stretch our necks on all the gibbets in the land; they may turn every rock into a scaffold; every tree into a gallows; every home into a grave, and yet the words of that parchment can never die! They may pour our blood on a thousand scaffolds, and yet from every drop that dyes the axe a new champion of freedom will spring into birth! The British King may blot out the stars of God from the sky, but he cannot blot out His Words written on that parchment there. The works of God may perish: His Words never!

The words of this declaration will live in the world long after our bones are dust. To the mechanic in his workshop they will speak hope: to the slave in the mines, freedom: but to the coward kings, these words will speak in tones of warning they cannot choose but hear.

Sign that parchment! Sign, if the next moment the gibbet's rope is about your neck! Sign, if the next minute this hall rings with the clash of falling axes! Sign, by all your hopes in life or death, as men, as husbands, as fathers, brothers, sign your names to the parchment, or be accursed forever! Sign, and not only for yourselves, but for all ages, for that parchment will be the textbook of freedom, the bible of the rights of man forever.

Nay, do not start and whisper with surprise! It is truth, your own hearts witness it: God proclaims it. Look at this strange band of exiles and outcasts, suddenly transformed into a people; a handful of men, weak in arms, but mighty in God-like faith; nay, look at your recent achievements, your Bunker Hill, your Lexington, and ten tell me, if you can, that God has not given America to be free! It is not given to our poor human intellect to climb to the skies, and to pierce the Council of the Almighty One. But methinks I stand among the awful clouds which veil the brightness of Jehovah's throne.

Methinks I see the recording Angel come trembling up to that throne and speak his dread message. 'Father, the old world is baptized in blood. Father, look with one glance of thine sight, man trodden beneath the oppressor's feet, nations lost in blood, murder, and superstition, walked hand in hand over the graves of the victims, and not a single voice of hope to man!' He stands there, the Angel, trembling with the record of human guilt. But hark! The voice of God speaks from out of the awful cloud: 'Let there be light again! Tell my people, the poor and oppressed, to go out from the old world, from oppression and blood, and build My altar in the new.' As I live, my friends, I believe that to be His voice! Yes, were my soul trembling on the verge of eternity, were this hand freezing in death, were this voice chocking in the last struggle, I would still, with the last impulse of that soul, with the last wave of that hand, with the last gasp of that voice, implore you to remember this truth - God has given America to be free!

Yes, as I sink into the gloomy shadows of the grave, with my last faint whisper I would beg you to sign that parchment for the sake of those millions whose very breath is now hushed in intense expectation as they look up to you for the awful words: 'You are free.'"

The delegates, carried away by his enthusiasm, rushed forward. John Hancock scarcely had time to pen his bold signature before the quill was grasped by another. It was done.

62). Latter day Israel to be captive of "Mystery Babylon."

"Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion." (506); "For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth... and thou shalt be CALLED BY A NEW NAME [Israel was to have her name changed by the Lord; just as He changed the name of Abram to Abraham; Jacob's name to Israel], which the mouth of the Lord shall name. Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married." (507)

These verses not only relate that Israel was to have a new name but that Zion and Jerusalem were also to have a new name. These verses were also talking of a "LAND" which would be called by another name. One of the reasons that so many people are looking toward the Middle East for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy; is they fail to recognize the Zion of the scriptures, in the last days, would be called by another name! As a result, of the revelations of this book, there can no longer be any doubt that this new land is AMERICA; which means in the Gothic language "Heavenly Kingdom." "I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof. And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and another angel went out to meet him. And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the Lord: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the Lord. Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. For thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye." (508)

A). This cannot be the land known to the world today as Israel, because that land is a very small country, with almost every town and village protected by actual walls, land mines and barbed wire.

Now, some may ask what is meant by cities without walls? It means a country with cities that are at peace, unaware and unsuspecting that anything is about to happen to it.

B). A multitude of cattle is used to indicate great agricultural wealth. There is almost no real wealth in the present day State of Israel insofar as agricultural wealth is concerned. And it would have none at all if it were not for the traitors in the United States Government which allows the Jews to ship in what few agricultural products produced in that Bastard State, to the detriment of it's own citizens.

As far as cattle is concerned, there are more cattle in the slaughter pens of America each and every day, than there are in the entire country of Israel. The land that Zechariah is describing is a great land. A land so large in area, cattle and men that it takes an angel to measure it. And for anyone to even attempt to place this land in Palestine and claim it to be the state of Israel; is to deny the Scriptures and to call God a liar! "The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah. As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee." (509)

C). Here we see that Zion is a place where people would long to be born. Whereas, the only people who MIGHT desire to be born in the present day State of Israel would be a few Jews; and not very many of those at that; because most of them ALMOST have to be hogtied and forced to move there. Notwith-standing that for hundreds of years, they cried out to all who would listen, for a country of their own. And now that they have one; few have the desire to go and live there. This is because The Jews are nothing but Parasites and they know they could NOT exist without a host country to steal their substance from.

They cannot farm and be successful because the ground is cursed to them by God Almighty: "And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now ART THOU CURSED FROM THE EARTH, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; WHEN THOU TILLEST THE GROUND, IT SHALL NOT HENCEFORTH YIELD UNTO THEE HER STRENGTH; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth." (510)

They cannot ranch; they cannot invent anything of value; they cannot be true to any country they reside in. In fact, they cannot even be true to their own people; Look at the great number of their own people they have destroyed, in order to keep the cry of Anti-Semitism alive! Our Israel people must face the reality of our present status. We are a people in captivity, just as surely as our Israelite ancestors were when they were under Egypt, Moab, Midianite, Amalekites, Philistines, Assyrians or Babylonanians; so are we captives in America today.

We have been dispossessed of our land. We are now living in enemy country. Aliens are swarming into our land; so that we are strangers amidst the heathen faces that have crowded into our cities and market places and are even now spilling into our rural areas. The racial countenance of our people grows ever more dark; because of mixed marriages; our peoples' mental capabilities are decreasing, and the white minority living in America are ever faster targeted for destruction. WE ARE IN THE BONDAGE OF MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, and to all appearances our American Captivity may end us as the singularly greatest captivity of our race.

We are now witnessing what may be the final captivity in a long series of historical events that have rendered our race as a people in servitude to foreign and alien powers. The Anglo-Saxon Israelite Race was in bondage in ancient Egypt (511). Later, the Israelites were enslaved during the Assyrian Captivity, during which the Northern Ten-Tribes were dispersed (512) and the Southern Tribes during the Babylonian Captivity (513). Therefore, we Israelites not living in the American Captivity under "Mystery Babylon the Great" are in what will, in all likelihood, be the last and greatest of all the captivities.

In the Book of Micah we find the prophet wrote of a PLACE called Zion. "Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion [Not the old Zion in Palestine, but THE DAUGHTER; A NEW ZION], like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon." (514)

Now let us turn to Zechariah where we find: "Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon." (515)

Most Christians who attend church, or listen to radio or watch television evangelists are familiar with the name Zion. They have heard them preach about it; there are songs about it; in fact, almost every mention of it is about a beautiful, peaceful and serene place, where anyone, not just Christians would desire to go. But here are two passages of Scripture where Zion is a place of turmoil and pain; a place that is in need of being freed and delivered from something called "BABYLON." The Clergy of Organized Religion has told Christians thousands of times over the years that Zion and new Jerusalem are Bible names for Heaven. But these teachings become more and more false as we find passages in the Scriptures, where it is told that both Zion and New Jerusalem are in trouble.

Which produces a very interesting question: If Zion and New Jerusalem are in Heaven, where Almighty God resides; then how is it possible for it to be in pain, travail or trouble? However, all of these Scriptures become more clear and understandable when one realizes that the names Zion and New Jerusalem are in actuality the names of the NATION of REGATHERED ISRAEL. "And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast FAR off [Israel] a STRONG NATION: and the Lord [Christ] shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever." (516)

Some of the Scriptures we will study are about events which have already taken place; some of them are about events which are happening TODAY; and some of them are about events which WILL happen in the future.

Also in previous chapters we have proven to any who are not Spiritually Blind that AMERICA IS THE "STRONG NATION," the nation of REGATHERED ISRAEL and IS both ZION and NEW JERUSALEM.

So you should begin to see, it is America who has gone "even to Babylon," and dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. In other words America has come under and is even now being controlled by this anti-God, antichrist, antichristian world power, spoken of and known in the Scriptures as Babylon in both the Old and New Testaments. And what we see happening in America is EXACTLY what was written in God's Holy Word. Now let's return to Micah: "But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains [The greatest most powerful and blessed nation of all the nations on earth], and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people [Israelites] shall flow unto it."

Please keep in mind that in Bible prophecy mount or mountain represents a large nation or world power; and hiss represent lessor smaller nations or countries. So that you may see that this is true; turn to Jeremiah 51:25, where God condemns the nation of Babylon and He said; "Behold, I am against thee, O destroying MOUNTAIN... and I will... make thee a burnt mountain [nation]." So here in verse one of Micah Chapter Four as in Isaiah verse one of Chapter Two we find God saying He will establish the mountain or the NATION of the house of the Lord in the top of the mountains or nations. In other words ABOVE the other nations of the earth.

Now you can see and understand that whenever we read the term "the house of the Lord" where it does not mean the actual Temple or place of worship: IT ALWAYS STANDS FOR THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL. For they are God's house, the people of Israel, the place where God would dwell. "What! know ye not that ye are THE TEMPLE of God, and that the spirit of God [Holy Spirit] dwelleth in you?" (517); "...for ye are THE TEMPLE of the living God." (518)

Continuing on in Micah, "And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain [Nation] of the Lord [The regathered nation of Israel -- Which is not the Murderous, Outlaw and Bandit state know as Israel today], and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he [Christ] will teach us of his ways, and will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord Jerusalem." (519)

This is NOT speaking of heaven, which is spoken of so often by the Clergy of Organized Religion; but is obviously of a place ON THE EARTH where the people of the earth would be able to come to receive instruction and to be taught the Law and the Word of the Lord.

Micah then goes on to say, "And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it [This appears to mean the end of oppression and crime upon the earth]. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god [Here it appears that even while Christ is on His Throne, HERE ON THE EARTH, there are people outside of Zion and New Jerusalem which will worship gods other than God Almighty!], and we [Israel and Christians] will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever [It sounds like Israel is living in a perfected kingdom]. In that day, saith the Lord [What day? It is obviously in reference to a day among the last days as spoken of in verse one. Therefore, from verse six onward this is ALSO something that will come to pass in THE LAST DAYS]." (520)

We will pause here to remind you that: The Bible phrase "the last days" does not mean just a few days or even a few years; it is that period of time between the first coming [Advent] and the second coming [Advent] of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Never-Ending Last Days??

"These are the last days" cries a radio or television preacher, one of which, calls himself a prophet of God; who sends out numerous newsletters and religious publications; so teaches the television evangelist with a book on prophecy for sale; so say and think concerned citizens throughout the land. So has it been said for 2000 years!

As the Scriptures say, there is nothing new under the sun and so it is with men and their last days theology. Gary DeMar in his book "Last Days Madness," shows the list of such men is long and dated, going back as early as the second and third centuries. For example, there was Montanus, a self appointed Prophet of God predicting the end. "In the third century, a prophet called Novatian gathered a huge following by crying, 'Come, Lord Jesus!' Donatus, a fourth-century prophet, commanded attention when he stressed that only 144,000 people would be chosen by God. He found his magic figure in Revelation 14:1 (a verse which the Jehovah's Witnesses use to proclaim their own version of his heresy). Both Novatian and Donatus were branded as heretics by the Church." (521)

Martin Luther wrote in 1532: "The last day is at hand. My calendar has run out. I know nothing more in my Scriptures." (522)

As the year 1000 A.D. drew near, the old St. Peter's basilica was thronged with weeping, trembling masses awaiting the end of the world. Then there was a similar conviction in 1100, 1200 and 1245. "In 1531, Melchior Hofmann announced that the second coming would take place in the year 1533... Nicholas Casa held that the world would not last past 1734." (523)

Edgar C. Whisent put out a book, "88 Reasons Why the Rapture is in 1988." In 1992, Charles R. Taylor in "Bible Prophecy News" said: "What you are starting to read probably is my final issue of Bible Prophecy News, for Bible prophecy fulfillment indicates that Jesus Christ our Lord will most likely return for us at the Rapture of the Church before the fall 1992 issue can be printed."

"1994?" was a writing by Harold Camping predicting Jesus would return sometime in the fall of 1994. David Allen Lewish wrote a book "Prophecy 2000: Rushing to Armageddon." Dave Hunt wrote "Peace and the Rise of Antichrist." Also, let's not forget Hal Lindsey's most profitable book "The Late Great Planet Earth" with a sale of 25,000,000 copies.
 

What Does The Bible Teach Concerning The Last Days?: If that question was properly answered, the last days proclaimers wouldn't sell many books or reap much in donations to stay on the airwaves. For the LAST DAYS existed 2000 years ago, according to the Bible. Consider the words of Hebrews 1:1-2: "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath IN THESE LAST DAYS spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds."

Now here are some Bible questions for you: According to Hebrews 1:1-2, the writer of Hebrews considered the last days to be:

a). Something coming in the distant future (like 2000 A.D.).

b). The very last days in which he wrote the words "hath in these last days."

c). Impossible to understand and predict without reading a book on prophecy or hearing a self proclaimed prophet.

We find the allegories being used all through the Scriptures. No one has a problem with Juda being called a lion's whelp (524); Zebulun as a foal and an ass's colt (525); Issachar as a strong ass (526); Naphtali as a hind {A red deer -- one that is fully grown} (527); Joseph as a bough {branch or limb of a tree} (528); Benjamin as a wolf (529); All the tribes as a lion (530); Gad as a lion (531); Dan as a lion's whelp (532); Jesus as a Lamb (Throughout the Book of Revelation); Israel as a speckled bird (533); A nation of the East as a ravenous bird (534); Preachers as fishers (535); Pharaoh King of Egypt as a young lion and a whale (536) and Herod as a fox (537). There are many more allegories which could be presented but we believe this should suffice. Was any of these men such an animal or thing? Of course not! It is simply a description of the characteristics of these separate individuals.

Then we have the false doctrine of the Pharisees, Sadducees and Herod described as Leaven (538). Thus we can clearly see that it is not at all unusual for a word to be used to illustrate something more impressively. And that is what we are talking about.

When the word "lion" is used for Judah, we are trying to really emphasize the strength of Judah. And when we use the word "serpent" we think of something sly, wicked, evil, cunning, something that hides from us, has venom, that is strong and dangerous. And that is why the word serpent is used many times as an allegory in the Scriptures. Most Christians do not have any trouble with any of these in the various verses of Scriptures until we get to one of their pet verses which they have been led to believe something quite different than what the Scriptures actually teach; such as the "Last Days."

Almost 2000 years has already passed since our Lord and Savior came the first time, so many of the things prophesied to happen during "the last days" has been fulfilled. Therefore, the teachings of all too many of the Clergy of Organized Religion that "the last days" means only a few years before Jesus' return is not Scriptural. And in fact is quite confusing to many Bible students who attempt to fit all of "the last days" into the present or near future time.

Now let's continue on: "In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation [This would have to be about Israel. As the description of a people driven out by God and promised by Him to be regathered, fits only the Israel People]." (539)

In case you might get the wrong impression the word "remnant" does not necessarily mean "few in number." It comes from the Hebrew word "sheriyth": "a remainder or residual (surviving, final) portion: -- that had escaped." (540)

In Micah 4:7 we can see clearly that the place where God would regather Israel and make them a "STRONG NATION" is here called "MOUNT ZION." That it would be God who would bring them to that place and His Rule over them, there, would not cease for ever. God then goes on in verse 8; "And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; THE KINGDOM [Of the Lord Jesus Christ] SHALL COME [The kingdom is going to come to them. It does not say that they, Israel, is going to be, taken to the kingdom] to the daughter of Jerusalem."

This makes sense with what we have studied so far, and from what we already know from the study of the other Bible Prophecies; that the Kingdom of Christ WOULD BE ON EARTH, NOT IN A HEAVEN ABOVE THE STARS; that it would begin in and among the regathered Israel People.

The disciples of Christ knew this, for in the first chapter of Acts we find that Jesus taught them things concerning the Kingdom for forty days after His resurrection. And before His Ascension to Heaven to sit at the right hand of God Almighty. During this time they asked only one question, at least that is the only one recorded: "...wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?" (541) The disciples knew TO WHOM the Kingdom would be restored to, they just did not know when. They were, of course, familiar with the writings of Micah and with the other prophets of the Old Testament. They knew that Israel had lost the Kingdom to the Jews because of their disobedience to God, and were divorced and cast off out of Palestine in the dispersion. But they also knew the promise of the future "Restoration" of that Kingdom to Israel.

Turning back again to Micah we have seen that the kingdom would be restored to Israel AFTER they had been regathered and made a strong nation, and known as the Mountain [Nation] of the Lord, or Zion and New Jerusalem. So when we read in Micah Chapter Four that God would assemble her that halted; gather her that was driven out; that was cast far off a strong nation, we are reading one of the prophecies which was fulfilled in the bringing of our Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred people to North America: Their breaking of the ties that bound them to the old country; then their constituting themselves into a new nation, born in a day, on July 4, 1776. These who come to America were called a remnant by Micah; we would know them today by their "new name" of CHRISTIANS. Other prophecies tell us that the Israelites who would found Zion and New Jerusalem would be Christians. Prophecies such as that found in Jeremiah 3:14-15. This was fulfilled in America [Israel] who, at its beginning, had the promised Godly Pastors.

In Jeremiah Thirty One the "remnant" are prophesied to be regathered in Zion. "For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God. For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save the people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company [Here we can see that a remnant does not mean just a few people, but it CAN BE and indeed IS A GREAT COMPANY] shall return thither [In the next verse is PROOF that Israel regathered would be believing Christians when they came to Zion]. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications [To ask for something by earnest prayer] will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way [In other words He would give them the Word of God in Truth], wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn." (542)

We also have God's Word in Isaiah; "Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; [Following is who and what they would become] Even every one that is called by my name [CHRIST(ian)]: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him." (543)

Now we have come to verse 9 in Micah Chapter Four; what do we find? TROUBLE and PAIN; "Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail." Here is this Great Zion Nation where Israel has been regathered -- the Great Zion that the Clergy of Organized Religion say is "Heaven."

Do you see what abominable liars they are? Zion is ALREADY in existence; It has been promised a Kingdom, and now we are presented a Zion who has the characteristics of a woman in pain and travail. In other words SOMETHING is being born in "heaven." Verse 10; "Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion [Once again we are told it is the daughter -- a New Zion -- Not the old one in Palestine], like a woman in travail [Again the phraseology would indicate that something was about to be born]: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon [Here we are shown that AFTER the birth of America; the nation of regathered Israel, was to come under the captivity of Babylon once again. The Bible refers to this Babylon as 'MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.']; there shalt thou be delivered [Sometime after the latter day Israel has become captive of 'Mystery Babylon' it will be delivered by God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ]; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies [History has proven that these enemies that is being spoken of here is none other than our ancient enemies; THE JEWS!]."

In order for Zion to need deliverance from its enemies, it would be necessary for Israel to be in the clutches and under the control of her enemies; is the logical interpretation. What does it all mean? It means that sometime after a remnant of Christian believing Israelites are regathered, and after they have been made into "a strong nation." That they will be taken or come under the captivity of their enemies; that their nation the Zion of Bible Prophecy, would be the captive of Babylon. Zechariah said Zion would dwell with Babylon and would have to be delivered. Isaiah called Zion "O captive daughter of Zion." (544) Here we see that Micah writes quite plainly that Zion, the great nation of regathered Israel, would become the captive of Babylon.

We have now seen that prophetic Zion is a nation, and we claim that nation to be America. Now, we will endeavor to reveal just what that Babylon is and just what that captivity means. How it has taken control of this Great Zion Nation -- THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

It is in all likelihood that many of you readers have never thought of America as being in captivity. But most of you do know something is wrong, for we certainly are in a country in pain and labor; and recent years have proven that the American people have little or no control over their own government.

Therefore, we present you with this question: It is possible that something, called in the Bible, Babylon, has secretly taken over control of the reigns of our government? Think about it! If we, the United States is Zion, and we know that it is, then Babylon MUST be here and in control of our country also. The prophet Isaiah wrote much about Zion and New Jerusalem; most of his words to and about it are positive; they are filled with hope and with promise. Many of the passages in Isaiah have been used as the foundation for songs about Zion, and they have been also used to create songs about Heaven. Isaiah Fifty Two is one of the chapters directed directly to this entity called Zion. "Awake, awake [Apparently Zion (America) has been lulled to sleep by its peace and prosperity and must be awakened prior to its cleansing. Have there not been hundreds of books, pamphlets, records, tapes, and even movies with the major theme being 'Wake Up America?]; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircum-cised and the unclean."

This can be directly compared, and often is, with the Twenty First Chapter of Revelation; about the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven; verse 27 reads; "And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life."

This seemingly, absolute restriction, on who may enter new Jerusalem is part of what has convinced some of the Clergy of Organized Religion [Who are blind in the first place]: that New Jerusalem is really Heaven; and that only "dead" Christians may have entry there.

Now, we will admit that Isaiah Fifty Two seems to begin with the same absolute restriction on its inhabitants, by saying, only those who may enter are those who have been circumcised and have been made clean. In verse 2, God goes on in Isaiah, speaking to Zion, to which the uncircumcised and the unclean will be prohibited entry; "Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion." Here the prophet is talking about this beautiful Zion in verse 1 and then in verse 2 he refers to bands on her neck, which must be loosed and then calls her "O captive daughter of Zion." Now listen to verse 3, "For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for naught [Nothing]; and ye shall be redeemed without money." So, Zion, called in verse one, Jerusalem, of the beautiful garments, the Holy City and a place where the uncircumcised and the unclean will be refused entry. That Zion is a CAPTIVE! She has bands on her neck; she has been "sold." It is an economic slave captivity. The term sold for nothing and redeemed without money indicates an economic captivity. To be sold; to be captive and to have chains around ones neck is to be a slave. God's Word says; "The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender." (545)

What this means to us, is that once America has become a debtor nation, which as you know she has become; she is no longer a FREE NATION but a SLAVE ONE. Therefore, America has come under bondage, in reality a slave nation to the International Jewish Bankers. Our founding fathers were well aware of this insidious enslaving nature of debt. Which is something that would happen so slowly it could not be detected by the people and thus would NOT awaken them to what was happening to them.

Thomas Jefferson once wrote the following to a friend of his in a letter during the year of 1816: "If we run into such debt; that we must be taxed in our meat; and in our drink; and in our necessities; and in our comfort; in our labors; in our callings; in our treats; our people must come to labor 16 hours in the 24; give our earnings of 15 of these to the government; have no time to think; no means of calling our mismanagers to account, but be glad to obtain substance by hiring ourselves out to rivet chains upon our fellow suffers. And this is the tendency of all human governments, until the bulk of society is reduced to mere automates of misery and the four horse of this frightful team is public debt. Misery and taxation follows that. And in its train wretched oppression."

Is it not amazing how this man mentions the riveting of chains on the necks of our fellow countrymen by the means of public debt? And what did Isaiah say: "Shake thyself from the dust... loose thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion." The proofs of the sayings of Jefferson's statement is shown by a poem written by an Anonymous Author, and shows exactly what Jefferson said our government would do.

Now he's a common, common man, Tax the rag that wipes his nose,

Tax him, tax him all you can. Tax the pig and tax his squeal,

Tax his house and tax his bed, Tax his boots, run down at heel,

Tax the bald spot on his head. Tax his cow and tax his calf,

Tax his bread and tax his meat. Tax him if he dares to laugh.

Tax his shoe right off his feet. Tax the water and tax the air,

Tax his auto and tax his gas, Tax the sunshine if you dare.

Tax his road that he must pass, Tax the living, tax the dead,

Tax the farmer, tax his fowl, Tax the unborn, 'fore they're fed.

Tax his Dog and tax his howl, Tax them all and tax them well,

Tax his plow and tax his clothes, Do your best to make life hell.

It is also interesting to note that America's decline, which began when its people began worshipping the Jews instead of God and Jesus Christ in 1948. It has been accompanied, in proportion to its public debt; and she has become a debtor nation, with literally trillions of dollars of debt. More debt than all the money and all the property in America several times over.

Notice that Isaiah said that Zion [America] was sold for nothing. What does it mean to be sold for nothing? The meaning becomes very evident when one considers the present end time monetary system going on in the United States today; through which the American Government because of it traitorous leaders have mortgaged all of its property and all of it citizens to the International Jewish Bankers.

Speaking of this type of monetary system Horace Greely once wrote, "We have fastened the slave shackles to the ankles of our people and have brought all labors to a common level. Not so much by the elevation of former slaves, but by practically reducing the whole working population, white and black to a condition of serfdom. While boasting of our noble deeds we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system we have nationalized a system of oppression which, through more refined, is no less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery."

What system of money was he talking about? Today, it is called the Federal Reserve System. It is neither Federal nor is there any Reserve, but it is called by that name in order to give it some semblance of legality. It is a non-government entity; a privately owned corporation, that very seldom if ever, is mentioned by our so-called Ministers, which controls the volume of money in America. What does that mean, you say? President James A. Garfield once said; "Whoever controls the volume of money in any country, is absolute master of all industry and commerce."

With the present day money system in America, there really is no REAL MONEY at all. Sound strange and unbelievable? Well it's a fact! There is really no money; ONLY DEBT. Every dollar we have is a dollar's worth of debt. Look on the face of any size bill and you will see that it is a Federal Reserve Note, and a NOTE is a DEBT.

Our leaders, whom we trusted, have literally given away our country and its money to the International Jewish Bankers; only to borrow it back again at interest! Fulfilling Isaiah's prophecy exactly. You see, every dollar of debt is a dollar created out of NOTHING, except for paper, ink or a ledger entry. In a publication entitled "Putting it Simply... The Federal Reserve" issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston on page 15 we find the following: "The authority to CREATE MONEY is an important power for any organized government to possess, and CONGRESS HAS DELEGATED THAT POWER TO THE FEDERAL RESERVE." (546)

Don't let the lying Jewish Bankers tell you different. Each dollar is backed by NOTHING; there is NO GOLD; there is NO SILVER; there is simply NOTHING THERE. And for all these nothings, all the assets of America has been mortgaged. Again fulfilling the Scriptures which say you are sold for nothing.

Therefore, if America has given up everything; that is mortgaged everything for nothing, it would only be just, to get everything back or un-mortgaged for nothing: Would it not? Thus the Scriptures say -- "You will be redeemed without money."

The Zion we are reading about here may seem to be a new one to many, for most of you, like many of us in the past, have always been taught by the Clergy that Zion was Heaven itself. A beautiful city of gold; the place where Jesus would dwell and rule His Kingdom and that beautiful place where all Christians hope to go when their final days on this earth have come to an end. We, like you, have never been taught about Zion needing deliverance, nor have you ever heard about Zion being a place or something which might be captured by something else. Yet, when one actually reads the Word of God for himself, instead of just listening to the Prophets of Baal, the Clergy of Organized Religion all sorts of new things come up, which we have never heard before.

We have already made the statement that this Zion is not the Heaven of the Church World. But it is instead a land, a place of the earthly regathering of the Israel Race. That the prophecies and the description of this Zion fit the United States of America as they fit no other land on the earth. Much less the Bastard State of Israel in the Middle East, which is proving to be more and more like the Nazi's, the Jews have presented to the world, since world War II. There can be no doubt: AMERICA IS THIS ZION OF BIBLE PROPHECY!

Our Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred People who are the TRUE ISRAELITES, have been gathered here from the north country and from the coasts of the earth. God took our forefathers, one of a city, and two of family and He brought them to Zion. He did in America EXACTLY, what He said He would do with the Israel People when He regathered them in their OWN LAND. He made them a great and mighty nation, the greatest and most mighty nation that has ever existed in all of the history of the world from its foundation to the present time; It is ABOVE all the other nations which are upon the face of the earth. But God also warned that even though Israel was placed in Zion, they would turn away from hearing His Word and would become captive of their enemies, from which they would have to be delivered.

We, Identity Christians [For the want of a better name], believe that America is under that power today and has been since sometime between 1895 and 1899. We have been conquered by an alien race which is robbing and destroying our people. NONE CAN DENY that the symptoms of captivity are present in the United States, BUT MANY WILL DENY THE ACTUALITY OF IT.

Now we MUST repeat again and again, because it is so hard for many Christians to understand: The Zion of Bible prophecy is not a place of perfection. At least not in its early stages. We have just read where Isaiah has called it a "captive daughter of Zion" and said it had bands on its neck, that it had been "sold" into captivity and has to be delivered from its enemies. Well that seems to be what Micah is writing about here also in verse 9 of Micah Chapter Four, "Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished?"

Now Israel has had many kings and counsellors but usually when the prophets speak of one king of Israel, they are speaking of God Almighty. And here counsellor is in the singular "is thy counsellor perished?" If you will remember that beautiful prophecy of Jesus in Isaiah Chapter Nine, you will see what this probably means; "For unto us a child is born, unto us [Israel] a son [Christ] is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder [That would mean that He, Jesus, would be king over Israel]: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." (547)

So there you have it: JESUS IS ISRAEL'S KING AND JESUS IS ISRAEL'S COUNSELLOR! And here in Micah, God asks Israel, in Zion, why are you crying aloud. Don't you have a king and a counsellor. He is, in effect, asking Israel: Is your troubles so bad that you think your Savior, your King, your Counsellor is dead?

Take a look at America today. Millions of our people are grieved, frightened and angry about what is happening to their beloved nation and are crying about it. We are being destroyed with crime, with corrupt politicians, with corrupt manipulators of business and stocks; we are being disarmed in the face of an ever increasing threat from the communist nations. Parts of our sovereign nation are being given to other countries by criminals and enemy agents in our government.

Hundreds of billions of dollars are being forcibly taken from our people, and given, unlawfully, to foreign nations; who are in reality enemies of God, Christ and our country. They take other billions of dollars from our workers and are supposedly spending it upon education, health, welfare, military, highways, crime and thousands of other schemes to eliminate our many problems. To what end? The problems continue to grow and multiply at an ever increasing rate. It seems as if the money serves as a fertilizer and stimulates the growth of those problems, just as it does to plants, rather than bringing an end to them. But to whom do the robbed and plundered people cry out to?

Since America is no longer a Christian Nation and its people have collectively turned away from their God and the Lord Jesus Christ, they turn to and cry out to the government for help. God says, in effect; "Alright Israel in Zion, you are in trouble; is your King gone, is your Counsellor dead? Why do you not cry out to me." God then goes on; "...for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail. Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail." (548) Here, God is telling Zion to go ahead and suffer the pain, for these are the labor pains of birth, this turmoil, this corruption and these things which the people fear are all signs of something being born. He then goes on, "...for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field."

Apparently the Zion of prophecy is going to be given into the control of Babylon. Now let us repeat here, this was not a prophecy which was fulfilled when Jerusalem was conquered by Babylon in 500 plus B.C., and taken captive for seventy years and then released. It is true that Micah lived and prophesied about two hundred years before that captivity, but several things preclude its fulfillment in that old Babylonian captivity of so many centuries ago.

NUMBER 1: The term used for the time of its fulfillment in verse 1 is "in the last days."

NUMBER 2: The sequence of events, the captivity of THIS Zion would happen AFTER Israel was regathered.

NUMBER 3: The reference to the Kingdom being given to, or coming to, this place of Israel's regathering; Here called Zion.

According to Jeremiah and Hosea, Israel actually lost the kingdom when she was divorced by God (549). at about the time this prophecy was written; and she did not, nor could she have been given the kingdom again in Old Babylon. It was during the intervening years between then and the birth of Christ that THE JEWS SET UP A FALSE KINGDOM OVER ISRAEL. Which would explain the following Scriptures. "Then spake Jesus... Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees [The Jews] sit in Moses' seat." (550)

And; "When they [Jesus' disciples] therefore were come together, they asked of Him [Christ], saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time RESTORE AGAIN THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL?" (551) These would only apply if someone, in this case The Jews, had usurped the kingdom from it's rightful owners.

Let's look at Acts 1:6 a little closer. Several hundred years after the seventy years of captivity in Babylon, the disciples were listening to Jesus speak to them of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God, when they asked Jesus a question: "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore AGAIN [Here we can clearly see that the disciples knew that THE JEWS WERE NOT THE LEGITIMATE HEIRS TO THE KINGDOM; and that the so-called kingdom which existed at that time WAS NOT RULED BY A KING OF ISRAEL. BUT WAS RULED BY THIEVES AND DECEIVERS! So, they were asking Christ when He would establish or set up His Kingdom; which by implication, would be an EARTHLY KINGDOM] the kingdom to Israel."

We can clearly see that the Throne and Kingdom of Israel WAS NOT THEN IN THE COUNTRY KNOWN AS PALESTINE. Although David's Throne WAS in existence in ANOTHER land known as England. Which also explains the answer that Jesus gave them, "And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the father hath put in his own power." (552)

NOTICE: Jesus DID NOT say that David's Throne had ceased to exist, nor did He say that the Jews sat on David's Throne. He only told the disciples that it was not for them to know at that time God's plan.

The supreme hatred of Talmudic Judaism is reserved for and directed against the hated "adherers to the text" of Scripture, Christians, who are, thus, accused of spurning the words of the Pharisee "Sages," as enshrined in the Babylonian Talmud. These "adherers" to the Bible are classified as the primary enemies of Judaism. They are all "idolaters," "heathen," "goy." They rank, in the Jews minds, not only as animals, like the rest of the non-Jewish human race, but as the lowest and most despised form of life. The Talmud frequently refers to Christians (Bible adherents) scathingly as "Samaritans" and "Cutheans."

The Sadducees, were (because they were before Christians) the first of the Pharisees [Jews] enemies. They were the constant opponents of the Pharisees and their imported Babylonian paganism, misrepresented by the Pharisees as the Tradition of the Elders, the "Oral Law" ostensibly transmitted privately to Moses and on down, superseding anything written in the Bible.
