In the six years of civil war between the Pharisees and Alexander Jannaeus, King and High Priest of Jerusalem, 50,000 were killed on both sides before this Sadducean ruler succumbed, and his widow Salome turned affairs over to the Pharisees in 79 B.C. Her brother, Simon ben Shetah, had been waiting for such an opportunity. The continued civil war resulted in the sons of Alexander Jannaeus, Hyrcanus and Aristobulus, in 63 B.C., going hat in hand to Pompey. Caesar's Roman General in Syria, asking him to invade Palestine and slaughter their respective opponents. THIS IS HOW ROME HAPPENED TO BE IN POWER WHEN CHRIST WAS BORN. This is related in the Jewish Encyclopedia in the following way: "It is difficult to state at what time the Pharisees, as a party, arose. Josephus first mentions them in connection with Jonathan, the successor of Judas Maccabeus. Under John Hyrcanus (135-105) they appear as a powerful party opposing the Sadducean proclivities of the king, who had formerly been a disciple of there... The Hasmonean dynasty, with its worldly ambitions and aspirations, met with little support from the Pharisees, whose aim was the maintenance of a religious spirit in accordance with their interpretation of the Law. Under Alexander Jannaeus (104-78) the conflict between the people, siding with the Pharisees, and the king became bitter and ended in cruel carnage. Under his widow, Salome Alexandra (78-69), the Pharisees, led by Simeon ben Shetah, came to power; they obtained seats in the Sanhedrin, and that time was afterward regarded as the golden age, full of the blessing of heaven (553). But the bloody vengeance they took upon the Sadducees led to a terrible reaction, and under Aristobulus (60-63) the Sadducees regained their power.
Amidst the bitter struggle which ensued, The Pharisees appeared before Pompey asking him to interfere and restore the old (Pharisee) Priesthood while abolishing the royalty of the Hasmoneans altogether. The defilement of the temple by Pompey was regarded by the Pharisees as a divine punishment of Sadducean misrule. After the national independence had been lost, the Pharisees gained in influence while the star of the Sadducees waned. Herod found his chief opponents among the latter, and so he put the leaders of the Sanhedrin to death... In King Agrippa (41-44) the Pharisees had a supporter and friend, and with the destruction of the Temple the Sadducees disappeared altogether, LEAVING THE REGULATION OF ALL JEWISH AFFAIRS IN THE HANDS OF THE PHARISEES. HENCEFORTH JEWISH LIFE WAS REGULATED BY THE TEACHINGS OF THE PHARISEES; THE WHOLE HISTORY OF JUDAISM WAS RECONSTRUCTED FROM THE PHARISAIC POINT OF VIEW, and a new aspect was given to the Sanhedrin of the past. A new chain of tradition supplanted the older, Priestly tradition (554). PHARISAISM SHAPED THE CHARACTER OF JUDAISM AND THE LIFE AND THOUGHT OF THE JEW FOR ALL THE FUTURE." (555)
As we continue on in the book of Micah Chapter Four, which when read, cannot be fitted in with the old Babylon Captivity. Verse 10, "...and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies."
So Zion will be saved and redeemed while she is in captivity to this prophetic Babylon. Verse 11, "Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion."
For those who would say, "This is only a prophecy about the 70-year captivity and has already been fulfilled."
If you believe this or have been told that, then consider this; When Jerusalem was taken captive by Babylon several hundred years before the birth of Christ, only ONE NATION came against Jerusalem at that time: But this prophecy, says "MANY NATION(s) are gathered against" her. And they are saying, "Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion."
Those of you who are crying aloud over what is happening to America; What is it that the un-Americans, the antichristians are doing to this country if it cannot be described as defiling her. America is being defiled by the deliberate destruction of her morals; by filthy movies and magazines; by drugs and alcohol whose use is promoted by the movies, television, by music and by all sorts of devious means.
By implication, music COULD be used as a moral force against an evil society, but this is not so now, and such attempts to Christianize rock music have only resulted in Christian music being "rocked," so to speak. One Catholic priest who is also a disc jockey in Illinois, goes so far as to MIX secular rock music with religion, explaining, "You don't have to be boring in order to be holy," (556) valuing excitement above obedience to God. Luke 16:13, tells us we cannot serve two masters, "No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."
By the continued use of alcohol in the form of strong drink, which is causing many of our people to cry out in a sinner's lament, "Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! And the HARP, and the VIOL, the TABRET, and PIPE [All musical instruments], and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands." (557)
In the Fifth Chapter of Amos, God plainly says He will not hear the noisesome songs of evil doers; "Take thou away from me the noise of thy SONGS; for I will not hear the melody of thy VIOLS." (558) And tells us to seek for the good and to hate evil; "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time. Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. HATE THE EVIL, and love the good." (559)
Then in Chapter Eight, God tells us that He will turn all their songs into lamentations, in the Day of Judgment. By the continued presentation of the homosexual and lesbian lifestyle which is being pushed upon our people by disgusting sexual perverts, who tell our Israel people the horrendous lie, that these are the legitimate and normal actions of men and women.
By disrupting our educational system bringing confusion into it to the extent that our own children are being prevented from learning to read [This is because people are more easily manipulated if they cannot research, for themselves, the truth of an idea or concept being presented to them]. By the graft and corruption at all levels of government. "For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed." (560)
By all sorts of crime, from petty theft to the swindling of thousands of people out of millions of dollars in land fraud, stock manipulations, insurance schemes and etc., "Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem [America], and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth... They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour's wife... They have belied the Lord, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them... Hear not this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not... this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart... Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season... among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge... A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so." (561)
Then by not punishing the criminals and releasing them back into society to continue their criminal ways; which is all part of a plan by the one worlders to disrupt and demoralize the lives of honest citizens. By convincing our people that "over population" is a great danger, so as to promote the reduction of the White Race through birth control and abortions: THE MURDER OF THE UNBORN! By increasing our taxes and deflating our currency, which creates fear in the elderly and disabled who are trapped by fixed income; and destroys the incentive to work in the young.
They are trying to build up in our people a fatalism that our Race must give up everything we have, or ever hope to have, to the aliens invading our borders, to foreign nations and to our enemies who hate us and would destroy us if they can. This alien force in America is saying, "Let us all get together and let us defile America."
Which is exactly what God said that the nations would say and do to the Zion of Bible prophecy. That they would gather against her and say, "let her be defiled." Then they would say, "let our eye look upon Zion." Is there any doubt: AMERICA IS THE MOST LOOKED UPON, SPIED AGAINST NATION IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY, SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME?! But listen to what God says: "But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel." (562)
In other words, they do not know what God has revealed in His Word, the Bible, of His plan, they only know of their own. "...neither understand they His counsel: for He shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor."
Then we have a command to Zion at the very height or depth, as it may be, of her captivity, v. 13: "Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth."
Now this is quite a switch in just a few verses, don't you think? All the way from God's people in Zion, in captivity, and being almost in total despair; perhaps even to the point of thinking that God is dead and cannot save them, and to the time their enemies are to be destroyed and gathered into the floor. This sheaves onto the floor phrase also fits the prophecy of Joel where he describes the last battle upon the earth, to be fought; "...in the valley of decision [This is the Hebrew word 'charuwtz or charuts' which means 'threshing' (563)." (564)
Therefore, the prophet is also talking of a "valley of threshing." In Isaiah Forty One, God says that at the end of the age He will give Israel a new threshing instrument, "Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains [Nations], and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff." (565) Several of the prophets and Jesus called this final destruction of the wicked on the earth; "...the time of the harvest..." (566); "...he hath set an harvest for thee..." (567); "...the sickle, for the harvest is ripe..." (568); "...and in the time of the harvest..." (569); "...the sickle, because the harvest is come..." (570); "...the harvest of the earth is ripe..." (571)
Then in Matthew Thirteen where the tares are to be gathered out of the kingdom, Jesus says that the angels would bind the wicked "...bind them in bundles."
Now let us continue on with our study of our captivity by Babylon. We believe that we can identify the Babylon, just as we have identified prophetic Zion and prophetic Jerusalem, to be the United States; where True Israel has been regathered and blessed by God. So we will be able to show you that which has taken our great nation captive.
And we propose to prove to you that that capturing power is the antichrist world power, of which the Clergy of Organized Religion speak so much about and which is always way off in the future somewhere. And all the while lie to our Israel people that they are going to be "Raptured" off into never never land where they will not see tribulation; where they will not be ruled by that power, never coming to the realization they are seeing tribulation NOW at this very moment in time.
With no understanding that our nation has been taken over completely by antichrists who are currently ruling our nation and the world from behind the scenes: The antichrist power which has brought violent death to uncounted millions of Christians, in this century alone, who were NOT "Raptured"; the power which is killing more and more Christians all the time. Yet our "Ministers" keep looking for and teaching about a "Rapture" which will never come.
The reason they cannot see is because; They have been blinded by their own Baal Doctrines, thus they are unable to recognize the truth, when it is presented to them. Paul spoke of these antichrists and identified them for those who will listen in Romans 1:18-32.
That antichrist power is here; it is ALREADY in existence; it ALREADY secretly rules the world and has brought violent death to more than two hundred million [200,000,000] in just the last eighty some years; and has plans for the death of one billion more before the year Two Thousand. It is this "RED" antichrist power which seized absolute control of Russia during World War I.
Nikolai Lenin (1917-1924); Aleksei Rykov (1924-1930); Vyacheslav Molotov (1930-1941); Joseph Stalin (1941-1953), He was also the General Secretary of the Communist Party (1924-1953); Georgi Malenkov 1953-1955); Nikolai Bulganin (1955-1958); Nikita Khruschev (1958-1964); Leonid Brezhnev (1964-1982); Yuri Andropov (1982-1984); Konstantin Chernenko (1984-1985); Mikhail Gorbachev (1985-1990) and Boris Yeltson who is the current visible ruler of Russia.
However, he like all the rest receive his orders from the Jewish Challah in New York City. These men and their henchmen have killed more than twenty million [20,000,000] or almost fifteen percent of Russia's population within the first twenty years of their takeover. Since that time the Bolshevik Jews have murdered another ten to thirty million more; which does not take into consideration the millions murdered upon the conquest of their satellite nations.
Now we ask the question: What power is it that has such control over our own government that it causes billions of dollars in military and economic aid to be "GIVEN" to these murderous butchers? The human tragedy of the Jewish Communist rule in the various countries of the world is almost beyond description and yet our government continues to send them aid whenever they request it; Even to the point of denying our own American-Israel people.
What is it that is bringing such tribulation upon the people of the world and yet remain hidden from our so-called "Ministers?" Who or what is it that rules the world so completely that even non-Communist Countries co-operate in every way with this mass execution of people who do not wish to live under the Communist Rule?
Can you not see??? This could only be possible if the antichrist system, which our so-called "Ministers" tell us is to come at some future time, is now in absolute control of ALL THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD, right now, AT THE PRESENT TIME!!!
The Clergy uses the book of Revelation, especially the vision of the woman of Chapter Seventeen, who is riding upon a "RED" beast; which the angel revealed to John in verse 18 as being "...that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
They also use the Second Chapter of Thessalonians, where Christ's return is related, and says in verses 3 and 4, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God [The 'Ministers' either forget or ignore the Scriptures that reveal who this man of sin is. (572)], or that is worshipped." This they say is the prophecy of one man who will be worshipped or obeyed by all the people of the earth as the god or supreme ruler of the entire planet. In verses 8 and 9 it says, "...then that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders."
These passages and a number of others make it quite plain that there will be a power which will rule over all the earth sometime BEFORE the return of Jesus [Don't you realize that Christ WILL NOT RETURN TWICE, once to get the Saints in a so-called "Rapture" and then sometime later a second time]. Remember Moses struck the rock twice and so lost his chance to enter into the Promised Land, because he was supposed to only speak to the rock. And neither will Christ return twice]; and that power of the anti-Christs will be destroyed when He does return.
The controversy is not over whether the Bible prophesies of such a world ruling power, but as to whether that power will be in existence and ruling the earth WHILE the Christians are still upon it. Many insist the antichrist power will come into existence only after Christians have been raptured away into Heaven. But current and past history provides us with the evidence necessary to prove that power is here NOW and that it DOES NOW RULE; and that it accounts for the great tribulations going on -- the earth today. As part of the more visible evidence of that power, one has only to point to the complete control, which is openly antichrist, the Red Bolshevik [Communist] Jews have over a large number of the nations of the world; the partial control on many others; the hidden control which they exert upon the rest of the nations of the world.
Notice, in Second Thessalonians, it speaks of a time when that man of sin will be revealed. It does not say; "when that man of sin comes." Which imparts the implication that the man of sin is ALREADY here; he will be ruling and then at some later date he will be revealed. "MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH," described in Revelation Seventeen Verse 18 as, "that great city [We believe this to be New York City], which reigneth over the kings of the earth" is just such an entity.
A ruling power that is a mystery. In other words a ruling power that is concealed from most of the people of the United States and the earth. Many of us believe, that this "MYSTERY BABYLON" is that antichrist power which the Clergy of Organized Religion expect sometime in the future, is ALREADY on earth, very much alive and is ALREADY controlling most, if not all, of the nations of the world -- INCLUDING THE GREAT ZION NATION OF AMERICA!
Now let us turn to Second Thessalonians to see if the son of Perdition, like Mystery Babylon will be here on the earth and be identifiable before the return of Jesus Christ. This chapter, or rather bits and pieces of this chapter is used by "Ministers" to support their "Rapture Theory," which is were Christians are supposed to be snatched off the earth by Christ. At which time the world and all of the non-Christians will be left to face a time of great tribulation; and come under the rule of one man, called the antichrist, who will then rule the entire world. But while preaching and teaching the Rapture Theory they NEVER explain the following, "And it was given unto him to make war with THE SAINTS, and to overcome them." (573)
Which presents a very interesting question: IF THE CHRISTIANS, WHO THE NEW TESTAMENT CALLS THE SAINTS, HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM THE EARTH IN A SO-CALLED "RAPTURE," THEN WHO ARE THESE SAINTS WHICH ARE TO BE OVERCOME?
Oh, many of our so-called "Ministers" will simply back up and say, "Well these are those whom the 144,000 Jews will lead to Christ." Which only verifies the lie; because if the Christians are taken out then the 144,000 Jews will be taken out also, and if they convert AFTER the "Rapture" then that makes it even more of a lie, because our "Ministers" teach that NO Christian is to face the tribulation. "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him."
Paul does begin this chapter by making reference to the return of Christ, and to the gathering of the Saints to Jesus, which will take place at that time. With this, we have no argument, for we sincerely believe that when Jesus comes, there will be a "RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD"; which is what is meant here by the phrase "our gathering together unto him."
Paul then goes on, still beseeching them, "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand." Paul is saying, in effect, "Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that the return of Jesus is at hand, at that time." Paul was writing this about thirty years after the Resurrection and Ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ; over 1900 years ago. He said, at that time, the return of Christ was NOT eminent, no matter what anyone else said. Verse 3, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for [Because] that day SHALL NOT come, EXCEPT there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, THE SON OF PERDITION." Then the next verse describes "THAT MAN OF SIN."
However, before we continue on, let's recap what Paul has revealed to us. We will say it in our own words; you see if this is not what he said, only in other words, "I implore you brethren, that you be not fooled into believing that the return of Jesus is near or eminent."
Because, the day of Jesus' return, will not come until a certain thing takes place. And what is that certain thing that must take place before Christ's return? Of course, it is THAT MAN OF SIN "MUST" BE REVEALED OR MADE KNOWN. Therefore, let no man deceive you by any means, that day shall NOT come except there come a falling away first, and that MAN OF SIN be revealed, the SON OF PERDITION.
Jesus revealed WHO the son of perdition was; "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost BUT THE SON OF PERDITION; that the scripture might be fulfilled." (574)
Who was Jesus making reference to? It was Judas Iscariot -- THE ONLY JEW OF THE TWELVE! Don't you understand? Do you realize that tens of thousands of "Ministers" have been trained in the Seminaries, to teach you a lie; that this MAN OF SIN, will be revealed only AFTER the Christians have been "Raptured" from the earth?
Yet right here in the very chapter they quote; which says quite plainly, that the man of sin, the son of perdition WILL BE REVEALED "BEFORE" JESUS' RETURN. And it has been revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself in John 17:12, if only you would accept it. Jesus revealed that IT IS THE JEWS WHO ARE THE SON OF PERDITION, but the Christian World has been unable to see and understand it; because of the massive doses of propaganda fed to them by false shepherds and the Jews themselves.
Oh, there are some today who still attempt to deceive the world, such as the story which has been circulating in the Christian World for several years now; that the antichrist has been born in Egypt and is just awaiting the proper time to come forth and reveal himself. Boy what a bunch of crap. But, they are all making the same mistake. The Bible teaches no such thing as one individual antichrist. John is the only writer of the New Testament who used the term, in his Epistles, and he wrote them some 1900 years ago, and he said; "...and as ye have heard that ANTICHRIST shall come, even now are there many anti- Christs... Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is ANTICHRIST [You see, anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ, is an antichrist], that denieth the Father and the Son." (575)
Then John says; "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and THIS IS THAT SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST, whereof ye have heard that it should come: and EVEN NOW ALREADY IS IN THE WORLD [It should be obvious to any thinking Christian that John is here relating that he is speaking of a RELIGIOUS SYSTEM; Judaism]." (576)
John speaks once more concerning this spirit of antichrist when he said; "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh [Can there be any doubt in your mind that John is talking about the Jews and their religion of Judaism. Because THEY HAVE ALWAYS DENIED THAT JESUS WAS THE CHRIST AND HAS COME IN THE FLESH!]. THIS IS A DECEIVER AND AN ANTICHRIST." (577)
Therefore, we can clearly see that when John gave the definition of an antichrist: It is ANYONE who denies the Lord Jesus Christ and that He came to earth in a flesh body, was the Son of God, and dwelt among us.
That such a person or religion is, in fact, antichrist; which SHOULD identify to Christians that there are millions of antichrists in the world today: But upon close study it will be found that only ONE RELIGIONIS truly ANTICHRIST by definition and that religion is Judaism! No, the antichrist is NOT just one individual man and neither is the man of sin as spoken of in Second Thessalonians Two.
Now let's read a few descriptive phrases of that man of sin. Then we will present you with some thoughts that might be quite different than you have considered before.
In verse 3, he is called the son of perdition. The word perdition is the Greek word "Apoleia" which means "destruction" (578). So in other words, the "son of perdition" is the "son of destruction" or the cause of destruction.
Verse 4, "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
This phrase "sitteth in the temple of God" has fooled many. Since all Bible students and Ministers know that there is no stone Temple of God anymore as the Romans destroyed the one in Palestine in A.D. 70, some have tried to say, "this cannot come to pass until someone rebuilds a stone temple, to God in Jerusalem again."
Which in itself opens up all sorts of speculations about how the Jews will rebuild the old temple and then this great antichrist will come and sit in it; and take over the rulership of the world, and be worshipped while he is in that great new temple. But what do the Scriptures say the Temple of God is? Paul, a Christian Israelite, writing to the Thessalonians related; "Know ye not that YE are THE TEMPLE OF GOD, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile [Which is the Greek word "Phtheiro" from "Phthio" which means "to ruin" or "destroy" (579)] the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which TEMPLE YE ARE." (580) Then we find; "What? know ye not that YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY GHOST." (581)
Then in Second Corinthians Six Paul is exhorting believers to separate themselves from unbelievers and from infidels as he wrote, "And what agreement hath THE TEMPLE OF GOD with idols? for YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD." (582)
Then he explains, "as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them." Paul is quoting God's statement to the Israelites through the prophets Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and others that God would dwell in Israel. Today, our Israel people receive so little preaching on the true identity of Israel that most do not realize that God does really "dwell in Israel." Most Christians realize they cannot say in truth that God dwells in Palestine, or among the people called Jews; because the Jews reject Jesus, and to say that God dwells among them would do violence to the teachings of the New Testament. So most of our so-called "Ministers" simply ignore the multitude of promises and prophecies made by God to Israel; that He would ALWAYS be the God of Israel and that He would dwell in and among them.
They do see that God is in Christendom but they do not relate that to the truth, that these Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred Christians ARE ISRAELITES. In Ephesians, speaking of the whole congregation of believers collectively as the household of God, Paul says; "In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an HOLY TEMPLE in the Lord: In whom ye also are BUILDED together for AN HABITATION of God through the Spirit." (583)
So the Temple of God is each individual believer; in a collective sense, the whole household of Christian Israel. With this in mind we then ask: Where would the man of sin sit? Where he could masquerade as God and be worshipped as God. It is obvious, HE WOULD SIT IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF A DELUDED AND DECEIVED ISRAEL PEOPLE. Who think they are worshipping the Divine One, when in reality, THEY ARE WORSHIPPING AN ENTITY CALLED, in Second Thessalonians Two "THAT MAN OF SIN... THE SON OF PERDITION."
Therefore, the man of sin could be, and you think carefully about it and see if it does not make sense to you: The man of sin could be a "FALSE CHRIST." Remember: Jesus warned Christians in Matthew Twenty Four, when the disciples asked about the signs of the end of the world; and Jesus said that many would come in His name, saying that Jesus is Christ and would deceive many. He also said, in verse 24, "that there shall arise FALSE CHRISTS."
This character in Second Thessalonians Two, is called the man of sin. The word sin, means the transgression of the law; according to 1 John 3:4. So it stands to reason that the man of sin is therefore, a man of transgression of the law. Thus, if a person professing to worship Christ claims that "his" Christ has put away God's Law; that there is no need for him to obey the Law, then that person is believing in and worshipping a Christ of "transgression" or a "man of sin."
Consider it another way. If a person believes that "his" Christ is going to come and snatch him off the earth and take him to heaven, and then turn the earth over to the wicked; and if that is false doctrine, a lie, and it can be easily proven that it is, then that person believes in and worships a Jesus who is NOT THE REAL JESUS OF THE BIBLE.
He is worshipping a false Christ, one who has attributes which the True Jesus does not have. One who is to do things the Real Jesus, the True Son of God will not do. That person is, in deed, and, in fact, worshipping a "man of sin." It is that man of sin, a false god and a false Christ who is in that person.
To fulfill Second Thessalonians Two there is no need for anyone person or any false god to go into a Stone Temple over in Old Palestine; it can be fulfilled by the simple fact that thousands or perhaps millions of God's people worship as God, someone who is not the real Jesus.
Paul in 1 Corinthians 10:12, gave a warning to Christian Israelites, "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."
We implore you, today, to examine your Christ. Is He the one of the Bible, or is He a false Christ? Put into your mind by false prophets, teaching false doctrines. Are you worshipping the True Jesus of the Bible or are you worshipping the man of sin? Thus, as many of you know, Babylon is a false religion; and if any part of our people are captive of it, or under the delusions of a false religion, a false Christ, then they are captive of Babylon are they not?
But, to repeat once again, our major interest in spending this time on Second Thessalonians Two, was to prove to you that whatever, or whoever the man of sin is; he MUST BE REVEALED, he MUST BE MADE KNOWN to God's people BEFORE Christ's return.
Now let us return to exposing what it is which has captured our people; religiously, economically, politically, socially and in all phases of our national life. It is called in the Bible "Mystery Babylon," and is described in such a manner that we can see and understand it. In Micah, God said of Zion or end time Israel, in her new land would be held captive under Babylon. Then in Revelation 15 and 16, we saw that Babylon was to be divided into three parts; and we believe that great city, which reigneth over the governments of the earth, from behind the scenes, but is the ruler nevertheless.
And it is obvious, that for this prophetic Babylon to capture prophetic Zion; Prophetic Zion MUST of a necessity, BE ON THE EARTH, not in some faraway Heaven. Because we refuse to credit some earthly power with being strong enough to threaten the Heavenly abode of Almighty God Himself. Therefore, the Zion of prophecy is a PLACE HERE ON THE EARTH. And we have previously identified Prophetic Zion to be Christian America.
When the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates, in Revelation 16:12, it was followed by the three unclean spirits [The three parts of Babylon] in verse 13; which went forth "unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty." (v. 14)
In verse 16, the place of their gathering was a place "called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon." Then as John saw the gathering of the kings of the earth BEFORE the battle; in verse 17, he saw as "the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air"; and followed in verse 18, by "voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great." Then finally "great Babylon" is mentioned, for the first time in this long passage and only the second time in the book of Revelation. Its previous mention was in chapter 14 v. 8.
Here in Revelation 16:19, it says: "And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath." This implies destruction in part and perhaps in its entirety, but in any case God's wrath is shown here to be directed against "great Babylon."
It would appear obvious that this "great Babylon" is ALREADY in existence on the earth now; and we believe that the earthquake which was to divide Babylon into three parts has already taken place; that it is past history and that it was not a physical quake of the earth as some teach.
In Revelation 17:18, the angel told John, Babylon the great is "that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
To put it another way, great Babylon is the RULER OF THE RULERS, and just before it is to be destroyed it would be divided into three parts; which we have already described as being:(1) Russia and its control of Asia, Eastern Europe and parts of Africa and South America.However, the close affinity and co-operation of these super powers is still mostly hidden from the view of the people of the world, especially those of the United States. But millions of Americans are beginning to suspect that the great words of criticisms and anger, which pass publicly between these governments, and which is so prominently displayed in the news media are really all part of a STAGED SHOW for the people's consumption.
(2) China and its sphere of control in that part of Asia not controlled by Russia, including India, Southeast Asia and parts of Africa.
(3) The Western Hemisphere and Western Europe with the RULERS of the United States being the dominating force in those areas.
Many are coming to realize that the rulers of America only pretend enmity towards the rulers of China and the United States. For they are beginning to see that there is really no major activity by any of the three governments which are in anyway damaging to the rulers of the other two governments.
That, although thousands, yes even millions of people die in so-called "Police Actions" between these super-powers; such as Korea, Southeast Asia and in several "Brush Wars" in Africa and South America. While all the while, the ruling powers of these three major governments not only remain intact but grows ever more stronger, but NEVER weaker.
THINK ABOUT IT; WE WILL SAY IT AGAIN, ALTHOUGH THESE POWERS SEEM TO BE AT CROSS PURPOSES WITH EACH OTHER; CARRY ON SO-CALLED WARS WITH ONE ANOTHER IN WHICH THEIR OWN PEOPLE ARE KILLED; THE MEN WHO ARE IN POWER IN THOSE GOVERNMENTS REMAIN
Have you ever thought about it or wondered why, if America wanted to defeat the enemy, would it have allowed one of its greatest generals to be sent home while he was in the process of defeating the enemy? General Douglas MacArthur was NOT under the control of the American President while he served in Korea; he was under the control of the United Nations, and it was they who fired him, NOT, THEN PRESIDENT HARRY S. TRUMAN.
However, President Truman acquiesced to the action in just ANOTHER traitorous action by the men who have served as the leaders of our nation. General MacArthur was fired, not because of incompetence, but because he broke the back of the North Korean Army when he launched the Inchon Harbor Invasion. And he could have destroyed the invading Chinese Army with just one atomic bomb, had he been allowed to do so.
Oh, some will say, "We could not use the bomb because our men were too close to the blast area"; to that we reply, "Tests were even then taking place in New Mexico with other American Troops much closer to the blasts than they would have been in Korea." Not only that but the bomb would have saved thousands of American and other allies soldiers and put the communist expansion plans back a hundred years; perhaps even destroying it once and for all.
Who or what group were so powerful that they could control our military to such an extent that they could actually cost America thousands of its finest young men in a no-win United Nations military action under the oversight of a RUSSIAN COMMUNIST GENERAL Kanstantine E. Zinchenko; who was the Department Head, responsible for U.N. enforcement measures.
Shortly after the inception of the United Nations, Mr. Trygve Lie was told by the Soviets themselves: "That only a Soviet could sit as Under-Secretary General of the Security Council of the United Nations." This is the war waging arm and peace keeping sector [forces] of the United Nations. Trygve Lie was astounded, for this was not in the United Nations Charter. However, the Soviets quoted the authority given to them in "The London Accord," where a meeting of "The Big Five" [United States, Great Britain, France, China and the Soviet Union] was held in London, England, and all agreed with this procedure. President Harry 'Solomon Schiff' Truman was the representative from the United States at that meeting in London, England.
President Harry Solomon Schiff Truman was also a "Grand-Master" Freemason. President Harry Solomon Schiff Truman the Zionist. One of the many TRAITORS in Washington, D.C. The magnitude of THIS INSIDIOUS TREASON is further realized when one understands that the "Under-Secretary" of the Security Council of the United Nations was, and still is, The Commander of the World Police Force.
All United States military forces served under a Communist Commander who totally controlled the war waging arm of the United Nations during the wars in Korea and Viet Nam [And after Viet Nam, up to the date you read this, including the Mideast and elsewhere]. The problem was further compounded when one realizes that the military staff idea of the United Nations Charter never materialized. It consisted only of a lone representative from each of the original "Big Five" countries.
PRESIDENT HARRY 'SOLOMON SCHIFF' TRUMAN WITH THE APPROVAL OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES PLACED THE ENTIRE UNITED STATES MILITARY UNDER THE COMMAND OF THE ENEMY FOREVER. IS TREASON AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL!!!
A young Officer and jet fighter pilot flying missions in the Korean Conflict [Unknowingly under the command of a Soviet General of the United Nations Security Council], He could never understand HOW THE ENEMY KNEW SO MUCH ABOUT THEM, as broadcast almost daily over the Communist Pyongyang radio station in North Korea.
Our wives' names, childrens' names, Squadron Commander names, flight numbers, etc.! The North Koreans knew when we were coming, how many of us there were, what type of aircraft we were flying, and even the targets we were to hit. Later He realized that the naval and ground forces suffered the same fate that we did, especially our Army and Marine infantry troops. All this was because:
All of our military operations had to be forwarded by radio, to the Soviet Commander of the United Nations Security Council at the United Nations building in New York City for approval before, our forces, went into action, against the North Koreans and Red Chinese.
The Soviet Commander of the United Nations Security Council delayed the battle plans, until he used the radios in the United Nations building in New York to relay all our 'battle planning information' to Moscow, North Korea, and Red China. The enemy then contacted and relayed these same battle plans to their communist forces in the field the enemy knew when to move from an area and when to attack our smaller fighting forces. They knew beforehand when we were coming and how many of us there were. They knew everything about us all the time 24 hours a day!
He later found this same form of "TREASON" was being used against our forces in the Viet Nam War. All information regarding "Every Battle Plan in Viet Nam" was given to the North Vietnamese, Soviets [Advisors], Red Chinese [Red Chinese fought our Marines near the Da Nang Air Force Base for many years.
DIDN'T KNOW THAT DID YOU. Of course not ALL THIS JUST HAPPENS BY ACCIDENT!!! CRAP. Open your eyes if you dare], and Viet Cong troops in the field during the entire war. The enemy knew our every move at all times. Our troops were led like sheep to the slaughter in both Korea and Viet Nam.
"Agent Orange" was also approved for use by the Soviet General in charge of the Security Council of the United Nations during the Viet Nam war. IT WAS TO BE USED AGAINST OUR FIGHTING FORCES, to inflict our soldiers with chemical warfare that would later kill them slowly, and also affect the children that they would bear when returning to the United States or wherever. This has also come to pass!!
Don't you understand yet: Every President, every Senator, and every Congressman since Truman, has been aware of this treason by the United Nations Security Council against our military forces. The deaths, suffering, wounded, and prisoners of war of both Korea and Viet Nam is to be laid at the feet of every President of the United States, since Harry 'Solomon Schiff' Truman and every Senator and every Congressman in Washington, D.C. again, "TREASON" AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS!
The same is true for all other soldiers of other countries who served under "United Nations Peace Keeping Forces," whether they were from Australia, Turkey, South Korea, Canada, New Zealand, or wherever. It was these same conditions of "TREASON" that got them slaughtered, wounded, and taken prisoner. They too fought under the "United Nations Soviet Commander" of the Security Council in New York City. Like blind fools we sent our combat plans to the enemy for approval. There was a standing joke among us fighter pilots, "THAT MOSCOW HAD A FILE ON EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US." How little did we really know. Every mission, every movement was compromised! General Walt, former Commander of the United States Marine Corps, reflected upon this information in his book that was written in the early 1980's. This book was NEVER allowed to appear in any book store in the United States. During the Korean and Viet Nam conflicts, thousands of our fighting men were mentally and physically incapacitated because of the "Treason."
To this day, the Soviets [Or someone from one of their satellite countries] ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN COMMAND THE UNITED NATIONS "WORLD POLICE FORCES." The blood of over 57,000 U.S. troops killed in Korea and the 56,000 U.S. troops killed in Viet Nam is crying out for revenge and retribution against the "Treason" and criminal behavior of our politicians. These troops were from all races and sectors in the United States... murdered and betrayed BY COMMUNIST-ZIONIST JEWS IN HIGH LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES ALONG WITH THEIR POLITICAL LACKEYS.
The 'Veterans Hospitals' are still filled with our soldiers because of this "Treason" in Korea and Viet Nam. As many as were murdered in combat in Viet Nam, the same amount of veterans have committed suicide after returning home from that planned "hell-Hole" in Southeast Asia. If only they would have had a chance to know that the same politicians who committed "Treason" against them complying with the United Nations Charter and the Soviet General that controlled their every action in combat. Each one of us that served in Korea or Viet Nam, served under the total command of a Soviet General!
Here is a quote from the New York Times, dated May 22, 1963: "The post for 'Political and Security Affairs' traditionally has been held BY A SOVIET NATIONAL... is a Senior Adviser to the Secretary-General."
Another quote from Congressman John E. Rankin: "The United nations is the greatest fraud in all History. ITS PURPOSE IS TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES."
Here are the names of the Soviets and the dates they served as "Under-Secretary" of the Security Council of the United Nations, thus, the highest military commander of all United Nations fighting forces anywhere in the world... including all military forces of the United States. These names and information were obtained from the United Nations yearbooks up through 1987. Later yearbooks are not yet available:Year Soviet General's Name
1946-1949 Arkady Alexandrovich SobolevNOTE: The names from 1988 through 1990 are not available at this time because printing is behind. The complete United Nations title for all these Soviet General's is: "UNDER-SECRETARY FOR SECURITY AND POLITICAL AFFAIRS."

1978-1980 Mikhail D. Sytenko
1981-1986 Viacheslav A. Ustinov (USSR)
1987- Vasiliy S. Safronchuk (USSR)
The Soviet Lt. General Alexander P. Vasiliev, the Soviet representative on the United Nations [Mini] Military Staff Committee from 1947 to January, 1950, is the same General Vasiliev who took "a leave of absence from his United nations job" AND WAS PLACED BY THE SOVIET UNION AND RED CHINA IN COMMAND OF ALL CHINESE COMMUNIST TROOP MOVEMENTS ACROSS THE 38th PARALLEL DURING THE KOREAN "POLICE ACTION."
Lt. General Vasiliev received all his military information and troop movements of all United Nations forces in Korea directly from his superior, Soviet General Constantine E. Zinchenko, who was serving as "Under-Secretary" of the Security council of the United Nations in New York. All battle plans HAD to be approved by him ahead of time.
It was the traitor, President Harry 'Solomon Schiff' Truman himself who refused to allow General Douglas MacArthur, the Supreme Commander of the United Nations fighting forces in Korea, to bomb the bridges at the Yalu River over which the Chinese Communist troops came by the hundreds of thousands to kill and wound our soldiers, Truman and the Soviet General in charge at the United Nations TOTALLY HANDCUFFED MacArthur in all instances.
That the United Nations rules over the United States would be obvious to all the American people if thy would only think about what has been told to them by our leaders in government. President Truman, in 1951, after he had announced the war in Korea and moved American Troops there, related to the people of the United States that we were fighting a so-called "Police Action" UNDER THE ORDERS OF THE UNITED NATIONS. Then, when General MacArthur, other military leaders and several Congressmen called upon the President to carry the conflict into North Korea so that we might defeat them and end the war; President Truman then informed them and the people of America HE COULD NOT DO SUCH A THING BECAUSE HE HAD TO OBEY THE MANDATES OF THE UNITED NATIONS: That this was a "United Nations Police Action." In other words the President of the United States was ADMITTING HE HAD A RULER ABOVE HIM; A RULER HE WAS REQUIRED TO OBEY AND HE WAS ADMITTING TO THAT FACT, IN SO MANY WORDS. But most Americans did not understand nor realize just what he was admitting to.
Then twelve years later when President Johnson ordered several hundred thousand young American men to be shipped to South Vietnam to fight ANOTHER United Nations "Police Action" there, so as to carry out the terms of the SETO Treaty. The full name of which is the Southeast Treaty Organization, a branch of the United Nations. Our American soldiers were ordered to fight, to kill and be killed, BUT NEVER TO WIN, under orders of the United Nations. Two hundred fifty thousand American men were killed or maimed for life in Southeast Asia during that insane United Nations Controlled War and our leaders never blinked an eye!
Who or what group gave the orders preventing the American Military from winning, and in many cases, from even defending themselves until they were fired upon; thus insuring the most casualties possible among the American Troops. Most Americans believe it was President Johnson and later President Nixon, but the truth is, THE ORIGINAL SOURCE OF THE ORDERS WAS, THE UNITED NATIONS, something that rules, quietly from behind the scenes, almost all of the nations of the world, including our own.
Recently Americans were surprised to see their own government, or at least what they believed to be their own government, transfer American Territory -- the Panama Canal Zone to a communist dominated foreign government, Panama. What they did not realize that the United States had not controlled the Panama Canal for many years.
For if America had really controlled it during the Korean and the Vietnam Wars, would it have made sense that the American Government would have allowed cargo and war ships supplying their enemies to pass through it. Yet, that is exactly what happened. Russian, English, French and other nations ships regularly passed through it carrying war supplies to the North Vietnamese Army to kill or maim our American soldiers during the Vietnam War and our leaders said or did NOTHING to oppose it.
The United States Military was ordered by the United Nations, not to blockade North Vietnam's only sea port, that being Haiphong; and the American leaders obeyed! Scores of American Battleships and Aircraft Carriers sat out in the China Sea off Vietnam for eight long years during the war, prohibited by United Nations orders from firing a shot or interfering with ANY ship of any nation from bringing food and war materials to North Vietnam. Oh, they made a pretence of mining the harbor, but were soon forced to remove the mines by orders from the United Nations. Several multi-national oil companies sold gas, diesel and other fuel along with munitions to both North Vietnam and the United States and delivered their products in time of war WITHOUT INTERFERENCE FROM EITHER SIDE!
During the Vietnam War hundreds of American ships docked in Saigon and at Da Nang, and at any one time from a dozen to a score of them would be in the harbors; although the Viet Cong Guerrillas had 120 MM Russian Rockets which they launched with regularity into the residential areas of Saigon and Da Nang from the Mekong Delta; and NOT ONCE did those rockets strike any of the ships docked in the harbors of Saigon or Da Nang; NOT ONCE did any of those rockets strike the hundreds of warehouses that were used to house war supplies [Think about it!
This could only mean that "Mystery Babylon" had ALREADY DECIDED THAT THESE SUPPLIES WOULD BE LEFT TO THE COMMUNIST FORCES when they were allowed to take over South Vietnam]; NOT ONCE did those rockets strike any of the United States or South Vietnam government buildings in Saigon; NOT ONCE did they strike any of the oil storage depots. No! Those Russian made rockets killed ONLY AMERICAN SOLDIERS and South Vietnamese civilians. But the supplies to carry on the war had safe passage and safe storage afforded to both sides.
Who was it that commanded the Viet Cong not to hit the ships in the Saigon or Da Nang harbors or docks, or any of the government buildings, nor any of the oil and gasoline storage depots? Was it the same ones who ordered the American forces to not strike the North Vietnamese harbor, docks, government buildings, nor any of the gasoline storage depots, nor any of the ships that were bringing war supplies to the enemy? Who was it that commanded the American Air Force not to use the systematic and carpet bombing which proved so successful during World War II against the Germans?
Who was it that commanded the American Air Force not to bomb the dams in the northern part of North Vietnam which would have destroyed completely the food supply for the Vietnamese Army and the North Vietnamese people, thus making it impossible for them to carry on the war, which would have saved countless American lives? Who was it that, instead of bombing troop training grounds, ordered the American Air Force to bomb the jungles and mountain sides, which insured inflicting minimal casualties upon the enemy forces; and guaranteed the expenditure of hundreds of millions of American workers tax money. Who was it that furnished the money to North Vietnam to carry on the war?
In ten years of warfare only ONE U.S. Government building was damaged, and that during the Tiet Offensive, by 10 Viet Cong which were quickly rounded up and killed. Thousands of United States Government officials walked the streets of Saigon for more than ten years, almost at will; easy targets for assassination but the Viet Cong guerrillas left them strictly alone. WHY? Yet the mental condition of the American people is such, that even today, MOST OF THEM DO NOT REALIZE SUCH A CONDITION COULD OCCUR ONLY IF THE "WORLD RULERS" GAVE ORDERS TO BOTH SIDES AS TO WHO OR WHAT, COULD OR COULD NOT BE DESTROYED.
Who were these "World Rulers" who have such power they could command the Communist forces to kill American troops but not U.S. Government officials? Was it the same power which prevented the American Air Force from destroying North Vietnam? Was it the same power which, even today, prevents America from protecting itself from the holocaust of a future war?
The news media which presented pictures of the dead and wounded on our television screens every night and our newspapers and magazines every day for almost ten years of the Vietnam War; had little if any time to depict or report upon the terrible butchery which the liberals of America caused to be inflicted upon the people of South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. They NEVER showed the thousands of people murdered by the communist butchers, but they wring their hands and cry to high heaven whenever a communist or some other enemy of America is killed; while at the same time they depict it as a heinous crime against humanity if an American happens to come out on top of a conflict with them.
It has been reported that almost 500 thousand Africans have been murdered by communist and Cuban troops in Africa; but pictures of these deaths are almost never shown on American television or on magazine or newspapers. But if an American or White South African happens to kill a black communist in defense of his life, family or property it is in every newspaper, magazine and on every television set in America for days.
THE UNITED NATIONS IN ITS SOME 47 YEARS OF EXISTENCE HAS YET TO INFLICT ONE SINGLE INCIDENT OR ACTION THAT HAS RESULTED IN A DETRIMENTAL ACTION AGAINST THE RULERS OF THE COMMUNIST NATIONS. IN FACT, ITS EVERY ACTION HAS BEEN AGAINST EVERY COUNTRY OR GOVERNMENT IN THE WORLD THAT WOULD NOT BOW ITS KNEES BEFORE THE GREAT GOD OF THE COMMUNIST-ZIONIST-JEWISH ONE-WORLDERS, THE UNITED NATIONS.
Russia, Cuba and China operate at will in Africa and South America; what is the United Nations during about it? Well, a spokesman for the United Nations announced that they would impose an oil embargo upon South Africa; but not one single peep about imposing sanctions upon Russia, Cuba or China. Oh, there have been literally millions of people killed in so-called anti-communist conflicts, but there has been nothing which has happened would interfere with the actions of the rulers of the various nations at all.
It is even now working day and night against the only nation left in the world who opposes its domination of the world; that country is South Africa. And American foreign policy is being directed toward the overthrow of White South Africa, while ignoring and openly aiding Russia and China in their assault against her and the other nations of Africa. Thus the three parts of Mystery Babylon are operating in concert, and the cities of the nations are falling; and the islands and mountains [nations] are disappearing just as the verse said.
Now, you begin to see through the glass darkly: That there is more to the United Nations than we have been led to believe; that it is simply a visible part of an otherwise invisible world-government, which already controls almost every country and ruler on the earth. That if we could see the rest of the control mechanism, we could read the read the rest of Revelation 17 and 18 and say; "Eureka, we have found it, we have found 'Mystery Babylon' the mother of harlots and the abominations of the earth.
That the pro-United Nations propaganda and much of the church doctrine; such as the 'Rapture' theory and of a future antichrist, are in reality falsehoods of 'Mystery Babylon' designed to coverup the existence of an antichrist world government, which ALREADY exists and to keep her hidden from those she has already captured and those about to be captured."
In the Second Chapter of Zechariah, the prophet tells of seeing an angel with a measuring line, who said that he was measuring Jerusalem.
In Revelation Twenty One, John saw a vision of what he called New Jerusalem and said in verse 15, "And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city." Other similarities to the two versions show both men are writing about the same Jerusalem, New Jerusalem, Prophetic Jerusalem and NOT the old historical city. We can now see and understand, New Jerusalem is a land, a great nation, to be inhabited by the regathered tribes of Israel is made clear in such verses as Zechariah 2:4, where we read: "Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein."
In the First Chapter God says in verse 14, "I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy." Then in verse 17, "My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad."
In Chapter Two verse 6, God said of this Jerusalem: "I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven." This was fulfilled in the driving out of the Israel people from old Canaan Land several hundred years before Christ with their dispersion into the then vacant continent of Europe, where they were to become the great nations of Christendom. When they were scattered over Europe where they lost their name of Israel and later became known generally to historians as Isaac's Sons or Saxons; with divisions such as Angels, Celts, Germans, Scandinavians and other Kindred people.
As you read the foregoing and subsequent chapters you will come to understand the Israel people have been regathered right here in the United States; that America is the city and nation called by the name of New Jerusalem and by the name of Zion in prophecy. Of course many of our Israel people still live in England, the Western Nations of Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada. But we are, at present, primarily concerned with the prophecy that this New Jerusalem, this Zion, of Bible Prophecy, would be captured and conquered by an alien force or power, called in the Bible -- Babylon. In the next verse of Zechariah Two, God speaks to this New Jerusalem, "Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest WITH the DAUGHTER of Babylon."
In Micah Chapter Four verse 10, God said to Zion; "...thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies." These and many others make it clear prophetic Zion would be captured by prophetic Babylon.
Now lets go on in the Book of Revelation and see if we can recognize "Mystery Babylon" from the descriptions as shown in Chapters 16, 17 and 18. We finished through verse 20 of Revelation 16 where Babylon was divided into three parts and the cities and governments were falling away; the islands fled away and the mountains [Nations] were not found. This appears to be symbolic language for countries and nations are currently disappearing as independent states and are being absorbed or swallowed up into one or the other of the three parts of Babylon.
One part of Babylon is represented by Russia which rules Western Asia, Eastern Europe and is at this very moment waging war against several parts of Africa; meanwhile Red China, a second part of Babylon is solidifying its control upon the sub-continent of Asia, with Hong Kong soon to become part of China again as England has agreed to give up its control of it in the very near future; and the third part of Babylon, the Western European Nations, including the United States is co-operating completely with those conquests.
Verse 21, "And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great."
This vision, that John saw, is often taught as if it will be real hail; frozen water which will fall from heaven. But remember, although John may have seen hail stones in the vision, like the other parts of his visions, each of these things was representative of something else.
The previous verses about the islands fleeing and the mountains not being found; certainly is not going to be fulfilled by real islands getting up out of the water and running away on supernatural legs; nor by the disappearance of all the mountains on the earth. No, islands and mountains in prophecy represents small and larger nations. And water in the Bible represents the WORD OF GOD; the living water which came from Christ.
In Ephesians 5, Paul writes of Christs' love for the church in verses 25 and 26, "Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the WORD."
So, you see, God's Word washes and cleanses people, but in Revelation 16:21, that water is frozen; it is in the form of hail; it cannot wash; it cannot cleanse; it can only cause hurt and pain. Many of the doctrines and teachings of Organized Religion today is like frozen water. Although they quote God's Word and present it as God's Word; they are handled deceitfully and in error; it cannot be drunk; it cannot wash; it cannot cleanse; it cannot be absorbed; it is in a form which brings about blasphemy against God.
The verse says that these hail stones fell upon men from heaven, which would indicate that God was the source of them, and it is true that God Almighty does send false doctrines to men who will not accept His Truths. "...because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." (584)
It is obvious to any who will open their eyes that many men and women are beginning sent strong delusions; for many do believe lies and many do blaspheme God. So the hail of Rev. 16:21, would be, in effect: God's Word being rained upon wicked men in such a way that they will not believe it nor understand it; But instead blaspheme God. To show that this is true, we have an example in Matthew 13, where Jesus told His disciples that He taught in parables so that SOME people would not understand Him. "And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given." (585)
There is a remedy for the frozen Word: Get away from ministers who freeze or hide God's Word by misteaching it. God's Ministers are to make the Word plain and teach it in truth. Paul said in Hebrews that God's Ministers are to be made, "a flame of fire," (586) and Fire will unfreeze God's Word.
Let's go on into Chapter 17 of Revelation. Please remember that chapter divisions were not in the original text; it was first divided into chapters and verses when the Geneva Bible was translated in the fifteen hundreds and it was done for ease of reference. So Revelation 17 is simply a continuation of Revelation 15 and 16.
After John saw the hail, we read: "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters."
Here the angel is now going to reveal to John the judgment or punishment of the great whore, which is called in verse 5, "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT." Think about it! Babylon, the great whore, is ALREADY HERE, IT IS ALREADY ON THE WORLD STAGE, while these things are going on. John does NOT see Babylon arriving upon the scene. In fact, if you will check quite closely, you will find that the Book of Revelation does not announce the arrival or the rise of Babylon at all; it relates WHAT SHE IS ALREADY DOING and HER END. So we can clearly see that the great whore is not something which arises on the scene during the seven last plagues, she is there when the scene begins. The angel said to John, "Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication [FORNICATION: worship of idols (false gods), New World Dictionary p. 549. We believe this to be the worship of the Jews which the Clergy of Organized Religion and Jewish Propaganda has fostered upon the world]. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns." (587)
Here again is being demonstrated the utter impossibility of these visions being fulfilled literally. We will not be looking for some woman, dressed in red, siding upon a red beast having seven heads. No, this is symbolic for something else. "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." (588)
Please review the next verse very very carefully. Especially those of you who have been taught that Christians will not be on the earth when these last chapters of the Book of Revelation are being fulfilled. Verse 6, still speaking of the woman arrayed in purple and scarlet -- MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."
Now that last word "admiration" does not mean that John looked upon her with favor; It comes from the Greek word "thouma" from a form of "theaomat" which means to look closely at #2295 and #2300 Strong's Concordance.
But the woman was drunk with what? With the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Christ. What ever this woman is, whether a political or religious entity, SHE IS A KILLER OF CHRISTIANS. That is obvious because she is drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.
This woman arrayed in purple and scarlet to be judged here, during the time of the seventh vial or the last plague upon the earth, was seen by John to have killed so many Christians that he could describe her in no other way than to say that she was drunken with their blood. In verse 18, the angel told John, "And the woman which thou sawest is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
We can see clearly that she is the world ruling power; she also kills Christians and in the last verse of Revelation 18, after she is destroyed, God said of her; "And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth." Now we have said several times that this world ruling power called Babylon IS HERE ON THE EARTH TODAY. It is not some future thing! She is ALREADY working her awesome murders upon the Christian people in most of the nations of the earth.
And she is guilty of the death of not only Christians but of the death of all that has been slain upon the earth. That God's people would be in Babylon, captured by her as it were, is obvious by the call of God to His people: "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
Which produces the following question: Why would God be so foolish as to call for His people to come out of Babylon, in Revelation 18, if the ministers of Organized Religion are correct in their doctrines; such as the "Rapture Doctrine" where they say all the Christians will be gone when these passages are fulfilled? No, God's people have not only been captured by Babylon, as we read in Micah 4:10, but it is responsible for the death of many of them.
Let's recount a little history, actually recent history, which has occurred in the lifetime of the older folks, and at least partiality known to all. The Red Bolshevik Jews conquered the 16 territories of Russia and Siberia between 1917 and 1921.
By 1931, they had put to death at least twenty million people, most of whom were Christians, and at least that many more were in slave labor camps.
Every Christian Bible, known to them, was burned or destroyed; Every Christian Church was closed and not opened up again until they could install a so-called minister who had been trained to deliver the kind of religious messages to their liking; Every known Christian Minister, was either killed or placed in the slave labor camps in Siberia. And, that same process has been repeated in every nation taken over by the Communist; although it has not been reported upon by the Jew owned news media. The same people who claim their color is red, the color of the woman and the beast in Revelation 17 and 18.
About such men, Jesus said: "If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!" (589)
Since 1918, the Red antichrist have almost swept Asia and Eastern Europe clean of Christians. They are currently working night and day to either kill or drive out all of the Christians in Africa. They have already succeeded in destroying Rhodesia. South Africa is now in their sights; the pity of it is they are aided in their criminal pursuits by the rulers of our own beloved America.
But think God, as we read Revelation 17 and 18, we are not reading of the rise of this great antichrist world power, we are reading of its judgment; its end; ITS TOTAL DESTRUCTION. And as Babylon becomes more and more visible to our people they will be seeing; not its rise to power, but its termination; its final death throes as God moves to bring it to judgment; to destroy it completely for ever more.
IN FACT, ALL OF THE BIBLE TEACHES IT WILL BE THE WICKED WHICH WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE EARTH, NOT THE CHRISTIANS OR THE SAINTS. THE SO-CALLED RAPTURE DOCTRINE, LIKE ALL FALSE DOCTRINE, HAS THE TRUTH UPSIDE DOWN AND BACKWARD.
63). The waiting isles of Isaiah are an announcement of America and its early occupation by European Emigrants.
"Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish [Spain] first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy one of Israel." (590)
Ancient historians say that "the term 'isles' primarily meant undiscovered lands supposed to exist in the Atlantic Ocean." The word "Tarshish," according to Strabo, refers to Tartesus formerly a seaport city of that name, situated on the site where Codiz now stands in Spain, near the pillars of Hercules. This has been accepted by Bible Scholars almost universally. One must remember Ephraim and Manasseh, as the representatives of the house of Jacob, both TOGETHER received the Birthright blessing under the hands of the dying patriarch. Therefore, since they jointly hold the birthright blessing, and even though Ephraim was set before Manasseh, we may expect that they should hold many of its blessings in common.
Take, for instance, the blessing pronounced upon the land of Joseph, as given by Moses on the day of his departure to the mountain of his death -- which is only an enlargement of the blessing given by Jacob-Israel on his deathbed; which was as follows: "And of Joseph he said, blessed of the Lord be his land, for the precious things of heaven [Sun-Moon], for the dew [Rain in his season], and for the deep [Abundance of seafood and large lakes] that coucheth beneath [His vessels], And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun [Abundance of agriculture products], and for the precious things put forth by the moon [Fruit and vegetables], And for the chief things of the ancient mountains [Gold - Silver - Copper - Iron and other precious metals], and for the precious things of the lasting hills [Oil - Chemicals and other precious minerals]. And for the precious things of the earth and fullness thereof [Great Agriculture harvests], and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush [Always favored and protected by God]: let the blessing come upon the head of Joseph...upon the top of him that was separated from his brethren. His glory is like the firstling [Firstborn] of his bullock, and his horns [Soldiers] are like the horns of unicorns [Strong soldiers]: with them he shall push [Be God's Battle-Axe] the people together to the ends of the earth [Use the labors of the people of other lands]: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh." (591)
This promise of wealth on land and sea, of abundant harvests, rare gems, precious stones, the richest and greatest mining interests in the world is fulfilled in the Anglo-Saxons, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and Kindred Peoples -- NOT IN THE JEWS.
It is also true that these White Christian Nations not only push the aborigines and their possessions into the ends [Corners] of their countries, but they push the people of other nations and races with whom they go to war with into the corners of their countries as well.
CAN YOU NOT SEE THE SIMILARITY OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL BEING SEPARATED FROM THE FIRST PROMISED LAND BY THEIR MOVING FROM EUROPE TO AMERICA, JUST AS JOSEPH WAS SEPARATED FROM THE PROMISED LAND IN EGYPT: The fulfillment of these promised blessings, which were pronounced upon the land of Joseph, by the people in the isles and their "separated" brethren, is the cause of the fulfillment of another prophecy given by Isaiah concerning this same people. "Be still, ye inhabitants of the isle: thou whom the merchants of Zidon [Jews from the Palestine seaport], that pass over the sea have replenished, and by great water [Oceans, as in Ezekiel's riddle] the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river is her revenue; and she is the mart of nations." (592)
The Sihor is a river in Egypt. Israel dwelt in Egypt for about four hundred and thirty years, hence they were formerly from Egypt, then later from Palestine; now in the isles of the great water. Moreover, the birthright holders Ephraim and Manasseh, were natural born Egyptians. Thus the Lord said: "When Israel was a child [young nation], then I loved him and called my son out of Egypt." (593) And it is for this reason that, in the Bible, the Ephraim - Manasseh Israelites are in two places called Egyptians (594). This fact of calling Israel out of Egypt is doubly true in the case of Israel; first when Israel was a young nation, the Lord called him out of Egypt; then again after the flight of Joseph and Mary into Egypt with the Baby, Jesus, to escape from Herod.
Here we have the background for the announcement, that the country spoken of had been an undiscovered country, and the reason assigned as to why it should have remained concealed so long, "shall wait for me," unknown and unexplored, until God in His supervision of the nations, was ready for its occupation. "Wait for" God, until the Reformation in Europe had neutralized the enemies of civil and religious liberty, until the principle of self-government should move the masses of the people to seed a new theater to realize the blessing of popular freedom, until the facilities of intellectual and moral improvement, invention of printing, the freedom of the pulpit, should arise as the powerful auxiliaries of an enlightened and wise Christian Republican Nation. "...and the ships of Tarshish [Old Spain] shall be first to bring thy [Israel's] sons from far."; "To bring thy sons from far."
This passage cannot apply to spreading of the Gospel, for the tidings of salvation are sent out to heathen lands, but here the sons of God [Israelites] are represented as being transported from their original homes to the newly discovered country. It cannot refer to Judea, for it was not and never was an undiscovered country, and the ships of Spain never brought, indeed, never can bring its first emigrants to it.
The motives of our ancestors emigration deserves special attention. With study, we find they came for the privilege of worshipping, "unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel." Our ancestors were also driven by storms of persecution which they had suffered in the Old World. "The glories of Christianity in England are to be traced in the sufferings of confessors and martyrs in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries... We should never forget that the prison, the scaffold and the stake were stages in the march to civil and religious liberty which our forefathers had to travel." (595)
They sought a refuge in the New World. When the minions of monarchy invaded the Southern Hemisphere [South America], it was for the sake of gold. The Portuguese in Brazil, Cortez in Mexico, Pizarro in Peru, took possession of these countries, in the names of the majesties of their respective governments. But when the Huguenots, the Quakers and the Puritans came to America, they took possession f these lands in the name of God Almighty and the Lord Jesus Christ. THEIR LIKE WE SHALL NEVER SEE AGAIN, UNLESS AMERICA REPENTS AND RETURNS WITH ALL IT'S COLLECTIVE HEART TO GOD AND CHRIST! To review the history of America is but to trace the wonderful providence of God. Look at the men who directed and guarded our Republic in its infancy, in the Cabinet, in the Camp, in the National Council and in Foreign Policy!
During the meetings to form our Republic, darkness seemed to shroud and cover the heavens; it seemed no agreement could be reached. It was at that point in history that one agreement was made; they agreed to submit their cause to the God of Heaven; to proclaim a day of solemn fasting and prayer. At that point the resolution passed with deep emotion; The Council-Chamber was closed, so that grave representatives could retire in silence in order that they could personally engage in fervent prayer; Holy Ministers of God at the Altar; faithful women with their babies pressed to their bosoms lifted their tear streamed eyes to heaven; Washington was on his knees in humble submission to the Lord God almighty and in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
THEN, AND ONLY THEN "A Nation" was born at once. A Nation whose birth date is recognized as the 4th of July, 1776, and then, 13 years later in 1789, it became a full grown nation and the Constitution, as we know it, went fully into effect. This also coincides with the fact that at the age of 13 an Israelite "man-child" is declared to be an adult. But before we conclude this chapter we should turn to the 40th Chapter of Isaiah, where we again find prophecies concerning America/Israel. Chapter 40 is acknowledgment God was keeping an eye on our forefathers, according to His Covenant, although they had been scattered into far distant countries; to the West, to the East, to the North, and to the South. (596) The essence of the chapters is expressed in these lines: "Comfort ye, comfort ye, my people, saith your God... have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth." (597)
