THE ANTICHRIST IS NOT
A JEW, THE POPE, ISLAM OR A JOKE
Grant it, Talmudic Judaism, Roman Catholicism, and Islam—let alone Theosophy’s New Age Krishnamurti or Barbara Aho’s Solomonic Judeo-Freemasonry Merovingian Dynasty Antichrist (i.e., Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair)—all have been suspect in producing earth’s final Apostate. East and West, the Oriental and Occidental, when holding the reigns of power (spiritual and political), vie for the ignoble source of this Despicable One; this Vile Person—whose names are legion throughout Holy Writ. Forgive, but apocalyptic allusions and theological eschatology are rife throughout this tome (especially the first part)—they do justice where justice is due!
My thesis is straightforward: Sarah, Hagar, Mary or the “New Age Axis of Blavatsky-Aho” are not guilty in producing the Son of Perdition, the Man of Sin, the Lawless One—amongst them all, none will give birth to the Willful King, the Prince of Tyrus and King of Babylon; none will seduce the planet’s unsuspecting by the Prince who is to come—The Coming Prince and Prince of the Covenant.
For centuries this CSI, crime scene investigation, has been in the making. Indeed, all three of the world’s great monotheistic religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—are found at the scene of the Wicked One’s final revelation—flirting with the “spirit of Antichrist gone out into the world” and caught in some way collaborating with the Second Beast known as the False Prophet—but their presence at the site, though incriminating, does not implicate their enabling and suspicious ways, as the final act of desecration, the Abomination of Desolation, transpires.
This Satanic transfiguration, wherein Antichrist takes on all the authority, intellect, and deceit of the Father of Lies—through the falsification of the resurrection and incarnation by the Evil One—will be revealed as THE BEAST from the Abyss, demanding uncontested adoration and worship—which none of these religions at their core, though corrupted, will afford! Hence, they will all suffer—though many will be compromised—as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble; the final Reign of Beastly Terror envelopes the inhabitants of the earth.
Again—listen carefully—this is NOT to say that apostasy and deception collaborate and announce his arrival, providing ecumenical accolades upon his introduction; but, once the religious fanfare subsides, and the False Prophet no longer hides the Beast’s identity, all spiritual pretenses will be terminated; useless, before the Desolator who will command all to behold and reflect his image and so institute the “Worship of the Image of the Beast”—lest they be put to death!
My arguments surrounding this thesis are intentionally curt—designed to jar those who take these matters seriously; viz. there is an unrevealed Antichrist who will countenance, yet future, this habitat of humanity. And why would such a prophetic shaking necessitate a tome of this intensity? To cause further inquiry into this diabolical plot and to place maximum onus upon the accused—thereby alerting the innocent and predisposed to the final deception and apostasy, while simultaneously drawing the faithful to the Redeemer of Israel, Messiah the Prince, Lamb upon the Throne and the Ancient of Days! Encapsulated in Daniel’s profound pronouncements are visions of the Messiah and of the Antimessiah—let antiquity and the revelations disclosed before the foundations of the earth forever speak:
“I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a younger one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words . . . I watched till thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire; a fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened . . . I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away . . . I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed” (Daniel 7:9-14).
Accuse me not of fixation upon Antichrist alone! He is but an Image observed in the imagination of one, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon—archetype of Antichrist himself, for he was that “head of gold”—the mastermind of the Kingdoms of this World, and, in particular of that civilization and Satanic influence which, when swollen to its fullness, encompasses the whole earth with its vile affection. Suffice! No poetic justice can communicate the evolution of the Great City called “Sodom and Egypt!” Yet, juxtaposed to the climax of Gentile World Powers—under the headship of the ultimate coronation of earth’s final King of Babylon—is “the stone cut out of the mountain without hands . . . it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold” (Daniel 2:45).
A thousand times NO! We are focused upon the Rock of Ages—the “stone that the builders disallowed—tried, proven” – uncut by human hands – One like unto the Son of Man, the Ancient of Days, Who . . .
“In the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; IT shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and IT shall stand forever . . . IT broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this . . . the dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure” (Daniel 2:44-45).
Here we speak of redeeming love, of the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world—of Messiah the Prince who was “cut off” for our iniquity, upon whom was borne the chastisement of our peace and by whose stripes we are healed! But likewise, we glory in the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, who in eternity past, as the Stone Uncut with human hands, will smash to smithereens the Image who stands for the defiant “kingdoms of this world”—behind whom is the C(K)osmocrater, the god of this world. YES! We rejoice in Him—for “to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him!”
Alas! Let me disabuse you once and for all—this is not the “ministry of death” but of LIFE! Without the Blessed Hope and the “Glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works” (Titus 2:13) – then, if we do not see Him Who was “slain before the foundations of the earth” – we are of men, most miserable!
To think that our carnal minds, our decrepit designs, can construe a better future for earth’s masses after ceaseless war, famine, death and destruction nigh six thousand years of recorded history—apart from Divine intervention and Messianic deliverance—demonstrates the preposterous, and illuminates the overweening sense of man’s insane propensity to contrive salvation apart from the Almighty and bespeaks of the serpentine spirit of Antichrist who will epitomize fallen man’s last ditch effort at idolatry! Is there any wonder then that the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet—emphasized from the lips of Jesus (Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14)—will commit the final desecration to wit:
“Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (II Thessalonians 2: 4).
And, rest assured, to think that the above speaks alone of a future Tribulation Temple so desecrated, camouflages the true intent of Scripture—NO, this has in view a far more ominous declaration: THE WORSHIP OF THE BEAST! The personification of evil, in the body or temple of the Antichrist, whose designation as THE BEAST is henceforth declared. He will announce his despicable and final intrusion (which forever has been his unmitigated desire and manifold quest):
“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High” (Isaiah 14:12-14).
Hopefully, we have struck a responsive cord within your spirit—and, I pray, a disquieting blow in blest anticipation to the crumbling of the Image—now, let us dissuade you from Antichrist’s definitive bias within monotheistic realms and give credit where credit is due! First, let us explore the sundry contrivances and the shadows cast upon both the tripartite religions, as well as the “manifestation” of Blavatsky’s” hierarchy. Secondly, we shall throughout this interrogation, gradually—and with ever-increasing incrimination—disclose the origins of this one who shall mount up as the “man of peace and safety” upon the White Horse of the Apocalypse.
THE ANTICHRIST IS NOT A JEW
This may come as an apocalyptic shock to some of you—in particular, Catholic, Protestant, Moslem and even evangelical Premillenarians—but the charge that the “Assyrian” – or a Jew birthed in Syria will be the fullness of the Man of Sin, is well entrenched in the minds and eschatology of Catholics, Orthodox Christians and Protestants of all flavors. This onerous burden has been borne by the diasporic Jew and now by a regathered Israel, for centuries—and accentuated by well-intentioned brethren amongst us evangelicals who see the manifestation of His Kingdom here on earth as yet future.
Suffice it to say, that the Jews though charged with a multitude of crimes—from the Black Plague to the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and global subjugation (especially economic)—are, nevertheless, innocent of the Despicable One’s origins. To the contrary—they are in direct opposition in Biblical typology and eschatology to the False Messiah; though many false christs have plagued their linage. And, again, let me announce that this is not to say that their acceptance of the Prince of the Covenant (yet to come) will not be the “him you will receive” spoken of by Jesus—he will be—but he won’t be Jewish!
Let us take a brief journey into the “Jewish Antichrist” whose ethnic identity led—and still leads—many a Christian and Moslem to curse the Jew through exile, crusades, inquisitions, pogroms, holocaust and finally, genocide by “Wiping Israel off the map!” At the head of all Zionist conspiracies is a Messianic Jew who will galvanize all Jewish aspirations for economic and political hegemony . . . and, cutting to the chase here: The United States of America, under Neo-Con/Jewish dominance, confirms to the left and right of the political spectrum (throughout the world), that this is precisely what is happening today! The election of an American Jew as President of the USA will, in the eyes of these conspiratorialists, constitute the final Zionist coup d’état upon a hapless world fed up with “Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the nations ‘round about her.” (Cf. Zechariah 12:2)
But, let us look to the past, in order to understand the convolutions of the anti-Zionist mindset who await an American Jew as the fulfillment of the final Antichrist. In fairness to the flock, I will primarily excoriate (politely) our evangelical brethren because the greater condemnation accrues upon them whose weapon is the Word of God.
First, the more flamboyant accusers—though well-meaning, they are scarcely original in their thinking:
“(Reverend) Jerry Falwell: On January 14, 1999, Jerry Falwell said ‘The Anti-Christ is probably alive today and is a male Jew.’ In his speech, he continued: ‘Is he alive and here today? Probably. Because when he appears during the Tribulation period he will be a full-grown counterfeit of Christ. Of course he’ll be Jewish. Of course he’ll pretend to be Christ. And if in fact the Lord is coming soon, and he’ll be an adult at the presentation of himself, he must be alive somewhere today.” (“Christian Jew-Haters”)
“When I delivered my sermon on the second coming of Jesus Christ last week to a pastors' conference in Kingsport, Tennessee, I conveyed biblically-based truths that I have believed and preached nationally for more than 40 years. In addition to asserting that I personally believe that Christ could return soon, I stated that the Antichrist may possibly be alive on the earth today. Many evangelicals, including Billy Graham and millions of others, believe in the imminent, premillennial, Pretribulational second coming of Jesus Christ for all of His Church. Since Jesus came to the earth the first time 2,000 years ago as a Jewish male, many evangelicals believe the Antichrist will, by necessity, be a Jewish male. This belief is 2,000 years old and has no anti-Semitic roots (My Emphasis). This is simply historic and prophetic orthodox Christian doctrine that many theologians, Christian and non-Christian, have understood for two millennia.” (Ishipress.com)
Naturally, Jews do not take this lightly . . . speaking of the vehemently pro-Israel Falwell (and this is somewhat old news) . . .
“Falwell's statement ‘borders on anti-Semitism at best and is anti-Semitic at worst,’ said Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League.” (Ibid., “Jerry Falwell says the AntiChrist is a Jew”)
Compounding these convictions are numerous evangelical, Catholic and even Islamic critics:
“‘I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive’ (John 5:43). The Bible does hint that the Antichrist might have a Jewish background. In Dan 11:37 it says ‘Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers.’ Although the verse could mean any deity, the wording strongly matches Jewish heritage of faith in God.” (Rapture Ready: Will the Antichrist be of Jewish Descent)
The seminal work by the renowned evangelical author and speaker, Arthur W. Pink, in his The Antichrist, A Systematic Study of Satan’s Counterfeit Christ, though brilliant in many respects, unequivocally trumpets this notion throughout the aforementioned to wit:
“The Antichrist will be a Jew, though his connections, his governmental position, his sphere of dominion, will by no means confine him to the Israelitish people. It should, however, be pointed out that there is no express declaration of Scripture which says in so many words that this daring Rebel will be ‘a Jew’ (my emphasis); nevertheless, the hints given are so plain, the conclusions which must be drawn from certain statements of Holy Write are so obvious, and the requirements of the case are so inevitable, that we are forced to believe he must be a Jew” (pp. 42-43).
“So plain?” Pink then goes into elaborate commentary to fit his interpretation. The forcefulness of Pink’s conclusions are buttressed in his Chapter 2 by no less than five biblical references and commentaries (Ezekiel 21:25-27; 28:2-10; Daniel 11:36-37; Matthew 12:43-45; John 5:43;) as well as several deductive reasonings; namely, his title (“The very name ‘Antichrist’ argues strongly his Jewish nationality” – p. 45); and the fact that “This mock Christ will be ‘received’ by Israel” (p. 45).
The very Scriptures used by Pink in Ezekiel 21:25-27 (Regarding the “profane wicked prince of Israel . . . when iniquity shall have an end”) are directly connected to his exegesis of Daniel 11:22 concerning the Prince of the Covenant wherein the religio-political intrigues of Antiochus IV (Epiphanes—“God Manifest”) who usurps the office of Israel’s High Priest, and de facto assumes the title: Prince of the Covenant—provides us the archetype of Antichrist.
Pink cannot have it both ways . . . his clear interpretations of Daniel 9:26-27 depict “The Coming Prince” as Roman (i.e., “and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary” – accomplished by the Roman legions led by Titus in 70 A.D.); and his commentary on Daniel 11:21-22 simply cannot avoid the Greco personality of one, Antiochus IV, who combines the Israelitish priesthood and the kingship under his usurpation.
“This is clearly Israel’s last king, ere the King of kings and Lord of lords returns to the earth. He is here termed “the Prince of Israel,” as the true Christ is denominated ‘Messiah the Prince’ in Dan. 9:25 . . . ‘Remove the mitre and take off the crown’ point to his assumption of both priestly and kingly honors. The Heb. Word for ‘miter’ here is in every other passage used of the head-dress of Israel’s high priest! Finally, the statement that his ‘day is come . . . in the time of the iniquity of the end’ establishes, beyond a doubt the identity of this person” (i.e., a Jewish Antichrist, pp. 148-9).
Then Pink exegetes Daniel 11:21-22 in this manner:
“‘In his estate shall stand up a vile person . . . he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries,’ This epithet ‘the vile person’ is a manifest antithesis from ‘the Holy One of God.’ This twenty-first verse takes notice of the Man of Sin posing as the Prince of peace. He shall achieve what his antitype, Absalom, tried but failed to do—‘Obtain the kingdom by flatteries.’
“‘And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the Prince of the covenant’ (v. 22). This ‘Vile Person’ is denominated ‘the Prince of the Covenant,’ which, at once, identifies him with the ‘Prince’ of 9:26, 27. Then we are told in v. 23 ‘And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.’ This ‘league’ or ‘covenant’ is doubtless the seven-years-treaty confirmed with Israel, which is made at an early point in the Antichrist’s career, and which corresponds with the fact that at the first he appears as a ‘little horn,’ the ‘small people’ being the Syrians . . . (Ibid., p. 159).
The intricacies of Pink’s argument collapse (viz., the Antichrist is Jewish) when the connection between his exegesis of Daniel 9:26-27 and Daniel 11:21-22 is made. Clearly, Pink points out that Sir Robert Anderson’s “The Coming Prince” depicts this “Prince of the Covenant” found in Daniel 11:21-22 (whose archetype is none other than a Greek, Antiochus Epiphanes IV), and Roman, seen in “the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary”—i.e., “The Coming Prince”). Pink makes the Antichrist of Daniel 9:26-27 (which he connects with the “Prince of the Covenant” in Daniel 11:21-22) Greco-Roman to the core:
“The judgment of God upon the people who were primarily responsible for the ‘cutting off’ of their Messiah was to issue in the destruction of their ‘city and sanctuary’ (9:26). This destruction was to be brought about by the people of a Prince who should subsequently appear, and be himself destroyed. The ‘Prince’ here is the Antichrist, but the Antichrist connected with and at the head of the Roman Empire in its final form. Now we know that it was the Romans who destroyed Jerusalem and the temple in A.D. 70, but that ‘the Prince’ here does not refer to the one who then headed the Roman armies is clear from the fact that Dan. 9:27 informs us this Prince is to play his part in the yet future seventieth week . . . the fact that we are here told that he causes the sacrifices and the oblation to cease, at once identifies this Prince of the Romans as the Antichrist—cf. 8:11 (My emphasis, Ibid. pp. 156-8).
Pink implodes! Greco-Roman Man—the head of Western Civilization—is none other than the Antichrist yet future! To surmise otherwise is in plain violation of the archetypes seen in both the “Coming Prince” (the Roman legions under Titus) and the “Prince of the Covenant” (seen in Antiochus Epiphanes IV—a Greek who came out of Syria—so much for the thought of a Syrian-Jew being the Antichrist). Their origins are European—having nothing whatsoever to do with the ethnicity of the Jew! (Please see both of our series on the Antichrist: Antichrist and the Gog-Magog War (an e-book); and, The US-Israel Strategic Alliance (a four-part series) @ The Tribulation Network)
Again, Pink uses Ezek. 28:2-10 regarding the “the Prince of Tyrus” as a type of the Antichrist—and this is correct; however, his convoluted reasonings are so embarrassing that one must conclude that some prejudice obscured his thinking to proffer these thoughts:
“There is only one thing that we would now point out from this passage: in v. 10 it is said of him ‘Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised,’ which is a very strong hint that he ought not to die the deaths of the “uncircumcised” because he belonged to the Circumcision!” (Ibid. p. 43).
To the contrary—Antichrist’s identification with the Prince of Tyrus (Tyre) unveils his Canaanitesh-Phoenician-Punic heritage and the nature of his “Economic Hegemony” in the latter days. What incredible twisting of Holy Writ to surmise the Prince of Tyre bears the mark of the circumcision? He dies the death of the uncircumcised because he is uncircumcised! Pink’s “hint” does not allude to the Jew but to the very Prince and King of Tyre himself! Absolutely and utterly this typology is Gentile. (Cf. Isaiah 23, Ezekiel Chapters 27 and 28)
In Daniel 11:36-7 Pink, once again, jumps to the conclusion that the expression “The God of his fathers” (i.e., Antichrist in Daniel 11:37: “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.”) has, according to Pink reference to . . .
“What are we to understand by this expression? Why, surely, that he is a Jew, an Israelite, and that his fathers after the flesh were Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—for such is the invariable meaning of ‘the fathers’ throughout the Old Testament Scriptures.” (Ibid. pp. 43-4)
First of all, the term “God” in Daniel 11:37 can be translated “gods” – this is further reinforced by both the side margin of the New KJV (Spirit Filled Life Bible, p. 1252) and by the subsequent expression: “nor regard any god.”
In keeping with the context of the type, Antiochus IV, a Greek, the acknowledgement and worship of the gods (i.e., Greek and Roman “gods”) was the practice of the day. Why would Antichrist share his glory with another? The Image of Nebuchadnezzar had no rivals but the God of the Universe! Pink scrambles antiquity’s history to the extreme. No, the height of idolatry will not be in Zeus nor Jupiter—they shall not share honors with the Antichrist-Beast. The age of tolerance, mutual adoration, respect—even the Pantheons of Greece and Rome—are finished: All Hail Antiochus IV, “God Manifest”! – All Hail Caesar! We have no king but Caesar!
Additional disclosures of Pink’s illuminate to us the heritage of Antichrist; they are superfluous—enough already.
Unfortunately, Pink’s convolutions regarding the Jewish identity of Antichrist are widespread amongst Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox Christians . . . for the time being . . . let us imbibe in the more exotic Jewish Antichrist of one, Barbara Aho, and her New-Age Theosophical bud, Helena P. Blavatsky—better known as Madame Blavatsky.
BARBARA AHO, KING SOLOMON, THE MEROVINGIAN-DYNASTY, PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION AND HER SOLOMONIC ANTICHRIST: Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair
Ascribing legitimacy to the notion that the future, yet present-on-the-earth, Antichrist, is somehow linked to King Solomon, The Merovingian Dynasty, The Knights Templar, The Da Vinci Code, Freemasonry and every cockeyed conspiracy this side of Dixie, is one, affectionately exposed by Moriel’s Jacob Prasch—Barbara Aho (a.k.a., Barbara Aho Blavatsky—a rather stark allusion to Theosophy’s mercurial founder, H. P. Blavatsky, better known as Madame Blavatsky).
It’s difficult to fathom the depths of the conspiratorial mind—as it leaps from conjecture to conjecture in a never-ending spiral of tales fraught with erroneous presuppositions which have been so utterly discredited by history that one stands bemused that roads somehow lead to the perfidious Jew as the ultimate manifestation of Antichrist. And, my, my, those Lost Ten Tribes have been busy populating Europe for centuries! Somehow, these Lost Tribes, along with King Solomon, Judeo-Freemasonry, the Merovingian Dynasty (Hapsburgs included) all come together in the twisted mind of the Helena Blavatskys and Barbara Ahoes of the world—and, why is it not surprising that this Axis of Conspiracy should hold so much in common when both are caught drinking at the cesspool of the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion—a Russian secret service fabrication disseminated in France by none other than Madame Blavatsky herself! (Incidentally, a fabrication held dear by Hitler, Henry Ford, and by today’s Islamic hate groups and the renown Arabic TV series from Egypt—MEM RI, #309)
Madame Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Societies, witnessed the ignoble beginnings of the Protocols, with her Theosophical friend, Yuliana Glinka in France:
“There is no possibility of doubting the date of the forgery or that the Protocols were composed somewhere in France. Their first publication was in St. Petersburg, in Krushevan’s anti-Semitic paper Znamya during August-September 1903 . . . It is probable that the forgery entered Russia with Yuliana Glinka (1884-1918), the daughter of a Russian diplomat who spent her time in Paris and St. Petersburg and was a Theosophist devoted to Madame Blavatsky. It is possible to identify Yuliana Glinka in one of the best known books of the Occult Revival, and when it becomes clear what sort of person she was the historian of the occult at once grows pensive.” (Historian, James Webb, The Occult Establishment, A Library Press Book, Open Court Pub. Co, LaSalle, Ill: 1976, p. 217).
In sum, the Protocols detail a worldwide Jewish conspiracy for domination and ultimate destruction of the “Goyim” (gentiles). The Protocols’ embrace and subsequent destruction of all things gentile is a testament to the occult links of the Blavatsky-Aho Axis that persists to this day! What Blavatsky unleashed and the Czar-Hitler-Henry Ford et al creeps perpetrated as gospel, has now been repackaged within the evangelical brain of Barbara Aho—a shameless taste for conspiracy theories and a total insensitivity to the suffering of millions!
“In his popular book Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler conveniently used the Protocols of the (Learned) Elders of Sion to deceptively ‘prove’ that a global conspiracy was afoot - but led by the League of Jewish Rabbis. This stirred massive anti-Semitism that ultimately justified the Holocaust to the German people. Earlier in 1919, the newly formed Thule Society had distributed copies of the controversial Protocols to troops of the White Russian army loyal to the Czar, in an attempt to blame the Jews for the ensuing Revolution. This led to the massacre of 60,000 Jews over two years, and was perhaps the beginning of the Jewish Holocaust. The Rosicrucian (sic. Theosophical) Protocols document is still used by neo-Nazi groups throughout the world to stir anti-Semitism and hate. Even today (U.S.) Republican David Duke promotes these same anti-Semitic theories on his popular website and continues to blame the Russian Revolution on the Jewish people, regardless of the historical oppression of the Russian people that motivated this conflict. The fact that the premier secret organization dedicated to this Second Coming, albeit through a complex and conflicted view of genetic bloodlines and reactionary socio-political models, is the Priory of Sion.” (The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion Scam, Yvette Seifert Hirth)
And this, of course, leads us to the “Evangelical scholarship” of Barbara Aho Blavatsky and her insistence, confirmed by this blatant hoax of a document, that the Priory of Sion embodies the future Antichrist—no doubt a self-hating Jew! At least she’s right out front about her distortions:
“THESIS: The ancient Sanhedrin believed that King Solomon was the Messiah rather than a type of Christ. This error led them to reject Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Today, the same false belief will lead many Jews to receive the Antichrist as the reincarnation of Solomon. The counterfeiting of Solomon has been masterminded by the Prieré de Sion and will be carried off by the Merovingian False Christ. The Antichrist will look like Solomon; The Antichrist will conduct his affairs like Solomon; The Antichrist will profess to come from the lineage of Solomon; and The Antichrist will carry out the offices of Solomon.” (Barbara Aho, Watch Unto Prayer – and throughout)
Aho’s “Thesis” is based on her “Premise” – to wit:
“King Solomon’s reign was so peaceful and prosperous that he was thought to be the Messiah.”
She then goes into a Hitlerian diatribe of proofs by quoting from the Protocols of Zion:
“When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court the finger of an invisible hand will point the nations towards this court. When, however, the nations fling themselves upon it, we shall come forward in the guise of its defenders as if to save excessive bloodshed. By this diversion we shall penetrate to its very bowels and be sure we shall never come out again until we have gnawed through the entire strength of this place” (Protocol 17)
All this under the title: False Peacemakers – the Merovingian Kings!
Again, Aho substantiates her thesis:
“The King of the Jews will be the real Pope of the Universe, the Patriarch of an International Church.” (Protocol 17)
“When the King of Israel sets upon his sacred head the crown offered him by Europe he will become patriarch of the world.” (Protocol 15)
From here Aho conjectures:
“It is no different in Jewry today, which aspires to establish a world kingdom under a prosperous and prestigious King Solomon. In the following section (of her cyber catastrophe) are references to International Jewish organizations which, upon investigation, were found to interlock with the House of Rothschild. As well, these powerful organizations are conjoined at the highest levels with Prieuré de Sion. According to more than one author, ‘The Prieuré de Sion – the Elders of Sion also relates to the Rothschilds who are reported to serve on a Jewish council of Elders of Sion… For instance, George Armstrong, The Rothschild Trust, p. 196, ‘That is the present objective of Jeroboam Rothschild and his secret Elders of Zion.’”
Incidentally, this is the same George Armstrong who in The Rothschild Trust says:
“The effect of Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s will was to establish the kingdom of the Jews that has since been governed by his male descendants. Wherever a Jew is located, whatever nationality he may claim, he is a subject of this kingdom; his allegiance and duty to it supersedes his allegiance and duty to the country in which he dwells” (George Armstrong, Rothschild Money Trust, p.24—Written in 1940 just before 6 million Jews were murdered).
And, several more gems on George Armstrong, who delights the fancy of Barbara, are as follows:
“George Armstrong informs us that at the time of him writing ‘The Rothschild Money Trust’ in 1940, that: ‘The President has dispatched the fleet to the Pacific. This is for the purpose of war with Japan. It can be of no other purpose. If Japan will only torpedo one of these boats, the Jewish Press, the Jewish Radio and the Jewish Cinema will do the rest. The Jewish Admiral Taussig stated to a Congressional Investigating Committee that ‘War with Japan is inevitable, (The Rothschild Money Trust, page 64).
“He goes on to state that: ‘They ‘bought-off the huge American Jewish Public’ with the promise of Palestine, and with them they bought the powerful metropolitan Jewish press and the Wilson Administration, says George Armstrong, in his The Rothschild Money Trust.” (What Really Happened, Propaganda in the Next War, 1938 with 2001 Forward)
How the Merovingian Dynasty got involved in all this—and how they persist to this day—is buried in the imagination of Barbara Aho; but never mind . . . she probes the recesses of the intelligentsia :
“Regardless of their ultimately Jewish descent, the Merovingians were not practicing Jews…the Catholic Gregory of Tours described them as ‘followers of idolatrous practices,’ but the priestly Merovingians were not pagan in any sense of being unenlightened. Their spiritual cult was not dissimilar to that of the Druids, and they were greatly revered as esoteric teachers, judges, faith-healers and clairvoyants.” (Laurence Gardner, Bloodline of the Holy Grail, 29:167)
Aho’s research—and, I might hasten to add, the so-called “research” of other self-appointed “Watchman on the Wall” types amongst English-speaking peoples—is not only suspect, but hearkens back to Europe’s darkest days, climaxing in the Holocaust itself! It is the “evangelical flavor” that enflames the passions of her readers to blame the Jew for all the world’s ills:
“Yet the Bible presents specific evidence concerning the identities of the Antichrist and False Prophet, the Mark of the Beast, Mystery Babylon the Great and other entities that will be imperative for God’s elect to recognize during the Tribulation Period. For instance, Revelation 13:1, which identifies the Antichrist as the ‘beast that rises out of the sea,’ becomes crystal clear upon discovery that a demonic bloodline that exists today that was originally sired by a mysterious ‘sea beast’ – the Bistea Neptunis. Merovingian authors like Laurence Gardner inform their readers about the demonic bloodline of the Bistea Neptunis in New Age books such as Bloodline of the Holy Grail.” (Barbara Aho)
Then, if apostasy and deception were not her motif—her alleged strong suit—she commends the New Age for its recognition of the Antichrist:
“There are compelling reasons for our conviction that the Antichrist will come from the Plantard and Saint-Clair bloodlines. Supporting evidence for this view will be presented throughout this series (I can’t wait—my humble anticipation), as well as information leading to discovery of the identity of the False Prophet, a Merovingian as well (Wouldn’t you know it—humbled once again).”
Others have observed Aho’s conclusions and summarize her findings:
“According to Barbara Aho, Rosicrucians and Freemasons, who believe in British Israelism, have a plan to place one of their bloodline on the throne of the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem. This positioning of a false messiah whom the world will worship as Christ has been carefully planned over many centuries. According to Barry Chamish, ‘there would be no modern state of Israel without British Freemasonry. In the 1860s, the British-Israelite movement was initiated from within Freemasonry. Its goal was to establish a Jewish-Masonic state in the Turkish province of Palestine...Initially, British Jewish Masonic families like the Rothschilds and Montefiores provided the capital to build the infrastructure for the anticipated wave of immigration. However, luring the Jews to Israel was proving difficult. They, simply, liked European life too much to abandon it. So Europe was to be turned into a nightmare for the Jews.’” http://watch.pair.com/brit-israel.html (Conspiracy Planet, Dr. Henry Makow) (http://www.rense.com/general28/brit.htm)
“We believe that New Agers already know the identity of the False Christ, the False Prophet and various other Tribulation counterfeits through their study of astrology, as interpreted by a large body of occult tradition and the current propaganda proliferating through New Age publications. There is no reason that Christians, given the same information available to New Agers, and aided by a right understanding of Bible prophecy, cannot discern and rightly interpret this end-time enigma. The alternative is to be at the mercy of a massive disinformation campaign that is being conducted within the Christian community by the same New Age network which is planning the destruction of Christianity and return of mankind to paganism.” (Aho’s brilliant comments shrouded in the mysticism of New Age quackery; and no doubt, I’m a part of the “massive disinformation campaign” being conducted within the Christian community planning the destruction of Christianity.)
Man, I’ve got to be missing something here! On the one hand she places a New Age transparency over the Bible, and on the other hand condemns the New Age Movement intent on the destruction of Christianity—somehow it all makes sense.
Her finale is just as absurd:
“Will Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair be revealed as the reincarnation of Horus, i.e., Nimrod, who will at last unite the world under Lucifer?”
You better stay tuned, or better yet, get some of Blavatsky’s writings and place them side by side with the Bible, along with a handy copy of Protocols as a reference guide; and, why not secure the scholarly works of British Israelites—sick, sick, sick—and all in the Name of the Son of God, no less:
“Presently there are many ministries that intercede for the United States and for the nations of the world. No informed Christian would deny that evil men have come to power, whose purpose is to overthrow free forms of government and to suppress the Gospel of Jesus Christ. However, few Christians seem to be aware that this same anti-Christ network (yours truly) has infiltrated the Church with a hidden agenda of subverting the true faith and converting believers to their false religious system.” (Barbara Aho
Yes, count me in. Why? Because I find it incomprehensible to countenance the anti-Semitic and dangerous nonsense of Barbara Aho who, like a number of Bible-thumping-New Age-Christian Identity-British Israelitish crackpots have the audacity to call themselves “evangelicals” and whose inflammatory “discernment” seeks to “alert the Body of Christ” to heresy, apostasy and deception—while all the while they are awash in the slime pits of conspiratorial hogwash! Following Herbert W. Armstrong’s Ten Lost Tribes around Europe—not only makes you anthropologically dizzy (Note: The “Barkochba rebels of Judah” head for America, post 164 AD, giving America an initial stake in British Israelism’s configuration of nation states who comprise the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel taken captive by the Assyrians in 721 BCE)—it does great disservice to the legitimate evangelical whose subscription to British Israelism’s manifold outcroppings (after the demise of Herbert W. Armstrong’s British Israelitish Financial Empire’s collapse—see Christian Media Research, The House That Herbert Built) leads to confusion and ultimate hatred for the Jew or a desire to “find themselves” as Jews in hopes of replacing or complimenting/complicating (at worst) real Jews (Note: These wanabe-Jews celebrate Jewish “Feast Days” and other customs of observant Jews.)
Let me conclude my remarks regarding Aho’s conjectures and affirmations relative to British Israelism (i.e., the Anglo-Saxons are the “Ten Lost Tribes of Israel”) by quoting from Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries (with some clarifications interspersed by parentheses):
“Cyber cultists like Aho . . . with their Ruckmanite and identity movement (British Israelism) leanings can be operationally compared to small time gangsters (Note: Hitler got away with it.). They do not have the organization, crooked lawyers, money-laundering accountants, or power of a professional criminal. This is like what happens when the cyber cultists get access to the Internet. Most cyber cultists have no church membership, do no evangelism, discipleship or anything else biblically ordained as a normal aspect of Christian discipleship. Theirs is mainly a cyber church where, like their paranoid conspiracy theorist counterparts of the secular world, they carry on the latest conjecture and attack anyone not getting on board, once more only revealing their ignorance each step of the way.” (Barbara Aho Alert, Jacob Prasch) (Note: Aho attacked Prasch and Prasch responded @ Email from Jacob Prasch; February 21, 1999 2:02 AM; TO: Richard Engstrom; Tim & Barb Aho; Vicky Dillen; Subject: Aho, ho, ho... Title: “A Brief Response to the Slander of Barbara Aho and Victoria Dillen,” By James Jacob Prasch, Cross + Word Archived Articles, Hebraic Roots Summary Page, found @ IntoTrust.org)
Rather harsh but well said when you try to follow the rather amazing prattling of this woman. The influence she and other “cyber cultists” have is growing—but so is the Truth of God’s Word, thanks to evangelicals like Prasch, who has no intention on letting “false discernment ministries” run and ruin the evangelical playing field.
CATHOLIC RENDERINGS OF ANTICHRIST AS A JEW
Much can and has been said regarding Antichrist throughout history. The Early Church affirmed him as a Roman Prince (Sorry, Jerry Falwell, this business of an Antichrist Jew is not 2,000 years old as you presume—see beginning of article, also Wikipedia on Antichrist); however, after the embrace of Christianity by Constantine, this became an embarrassment; therefore, the Catholic Church placed the mantle of Antichrist upon a Jew. (Please see J. Trachtenberg, The Devil and the Jews, New York; World Pub. House, 1943; Yale University Press, p. 224).
Indeed, the idea of a Jewish Antichrist is the creation of the Roman Catholic Church and can be traced back to the Fifth Century A.D. to the writings of one, Jacob of Serug. However, it was not until the 1300’s that this “doctrine” matured under the scholarly hand of Thomas Aquinas; accompanied by Albertus Magnus. Recent Papal clarifications on anti-Semitism within the Church have muted the Church’s teachings on this subject. (Please view “Anti-Semitism in Christian Theology” by Rosemary R. Reuther @ Theology Today)
As you can ascertain from this barrage, I have laid my greatest volleys at my beloved evangelical brethren—who bare the greater shame in their acceptance and vociferous development of the Antichrist as a Jew, because they have so unwittingly embraced this fallacy. Dr. Falwell—you need to change your convictions—and you need to search the Scriptures to honor the Lord you follow!
Notwithstanding—there are brilliant lights among the Premillenarian camp who do not subscribe to Dr. Falwell’s traditional Catholic embrace of the doctrine of the Jew as Antichrist, to wit:
“He (Antichrist) is a Gentile since he arises from the sea (Revelation 13:1) and since the sea depicts the Gentile nations (Rev. 17:15), he must be of Gentile origin. He rises from the (legacy) of the Roman Empire, since he is a ruler of the people (civilization) who destroyed Jerusalem (Dan. 9:26). He is to be the head of the last form of gentile world dominion.” (Rev. 13:1) (Dwight Pentecost, Things to Come, p 332).
Echoing Pentecost’s remarks, the late Dr. John Walvoord, President of Dallas Theological Seminary states:
“Among conservative scholars, however, two differing identifications of the king of verse 36 are given (i.e., Daniel 11:36). The common identification is that offered by J. N. Darby that the king of Daniel 11:36 is none other than the Antichrist, who is an unregenerate Jew living in Palestine at the end time but in league with the Roman world ruler. Darby, although not emphasizing the racial background of this king, identifies him with the man of sin of 2 Thessalonians 2:3-10 and with the false prophet of Revelation 13:11-18. A. C. Gaebelein offers the same interpretation with more specific emphasis on the Jewish character of this ruler as a false Messiah acceptable to the Jewish people. The principal support for this point of view is found in the expression of verse 37 ‘neither shall he regard the God of his fathers,’ which is identified as the God of Israel. Further, it is assumed that Jewish people will not accept even a false Messiah unless he is Jewish in background. As an apostate, he disregards his fathers’ God, the hope of the Messiah, and instead honors the Roman world dictator as god.
“A better identification of the king, the second identification, however, is to relate him to the Roman world ruler, the same individual as the little horn of Daniel 7 and the beast out of the sea of Revelation 13:1-10. Upon careful consideration, the evidence in support of Darby’s identification is seen to be insufficient, and the second view is preferred . . . Those who, like Gaebelein, identify this king as an apostate Jew at the end of the age, are likewise embarrassed as ‘the god of fortresses’ then has to be identified with the Roman world ruler. As Gaebelein states, ‘the one whom he will honor is none other than the first beast, the little horn.’ If this is intended, however, as an identification, it is a strange one and quite different from any other identification of the Roman ruler in Scripture.” (John F. Walvoord, Daniel, The Key to Prophetic Revelation, Moody Press, Chicago, Chapter 11)
We conclude this portion which, in the main, dealt with the Antichrist as a Jew—from Protestant-Evangelical, Catholic and New Age perspectives. Next, we shall consider classical Protestant teachings on the identity of Antichrist; and if space permits, Islamic and New Age versions of Antichrist.
