Damascus, the Anti-Christ and Armageddon


By Katherine Frisk for Veterans Today

As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, often the interpretation of a text is in the mind of the reader. Recent events in Syria have caused many scholars to revisit Isaiah Chapter 17, which speaks of the total destruction of Damascus and associate it with Armageddon.

According to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback:

“The idea behind the prophecy is a fairly straightforward one. In Isaiah 17, the prophet explains that, in the run-up to Armageddon, “Damascus is about to be removed from being a city, and will become a fallen ruin.” The implication is that it will be leveled by God on behalf of Israel as part of the last great struggle for mankind.”

Isaiah 17 translated from the oldest document we have, being the Dead Sea Scrolls :

The Oracle of Damascus: Behold Damascus is changed from being a city to a ruined heap.
4. (2) The cities of Aroer are abandoned, they shall be for flocks and they shall lie down and not be afraid. (PP)

5. (3) The fortress shall cease from Ephraim and the kingdom from Damascus and the remnant of Syria shall as the glory
6. of the sons of Israel become, say YHWH of Hosts. (PP)

7. (4) And it shall be in that day that the glory of Jacob shall be base and his fatness shall grow lean. (5) And it shall be
8. as the harvester gathering grain and his arm reaps the sheaves and it shall be like gleaning sheaves
9. in the valley of Rephaim. (6) And left in it gleaning grapes like the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries
10. in the top bow, four or five in the top fruitful branches says YHWH the God of
11. Israel. (7) In that day shall a man give regard for his Maker and his eyes
12. to the Holy One of Israel shall look. (8) He shall not give regard to the altars the works of him {his hands}
13. that which his fingers have made and he will not look to the groves or the idols.(PP)

14. (9) In that day his strong cities shall be like an abandoned limb or the top most bow which
15. they abandoned from the presence of the sons of Israel and it shall be a desolation. (10) Because you forgot the God of
16. your salvation and the rock of your strength you did not remember, therefore you shall plant pleasant plants and twigs
17 of strangeness you shall sow. (11) And in the day of your planting you shall make it grow and in the morning you shall make your seed sprout out.
18. but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and sick anguish. (PP)

19. (12) Woe to the multitude of many people like the sound of waters like the sound of nations
20. as the sound of waters they make a din. (13) Nations like many crashing waters shall make a din
21. and he shall rebuke them and they shall flee afar off and they shall be pursued like the chaff of the mountains before the wind and like a rolling thing before
22. a whirlwind (14) And behold at evening time terror, and before morning it is not, this is the share of those who plunder us
23. and the lot of those who rob us. (PP)

Now let’s look at the names which are identified. Firstly, in the time that this text was written, Isaiah constantly mourns the split in the Kingdom between the Northern Kingdom of Israel, referred to as Hebrews and the Southern Kingdom of Judah, referred to as Israelites. The Northern Kingdom were the descendants of Yeshua, commonly translated as Joshua, who led the people into the promised land. Joshua’s descendants were Nun, Ephraim and Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob/Israel.

As the blessing of the firstborn was passed on down from Abraham to Isaac and Isaac to Jacob, so Jacob chose to overlook his 12 sons and blessed his grandson Ephraim as the firstborn.

In this case, Zion mentioned in the following Biblical quote, is in reference to Samaria, the Northern Kingdom and can be equated with Mount Gerizim where Joshua dedicated the people to the law. In Jeremiah 31 we read:

At the same time, saith the Lord, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.

Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.

Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tablets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.

Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.

For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God.

For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.

Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.

Now we go back to Isaiah, 17. He says that when Damascus is destroyed, the Royal power will be taken from Ephraim and a remnant of Syria will be the glory of the Israel. In the context of Isaiah, the glory of Israel is Ephraim.

Now let’s go back to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback:

“The idea behind the prophecy is a fairly straightforward one. In Isaiah 17, the prophet explains that, in the run-up to Armageddon, “Damascus is about to be removed from being a city, and will become a fallen ruin.” The implication is that it will be leveled by God on behalf of Israel as part of the last great struggle for mankind.”

Leveled by God? If, according to Isaiah,  due to the fall of Damascus, “Israel” itself is punished, how can it be leveled by God on behalf of Israel? One has to ask, is this really on behalf of Israel? And is this really a struggle for mankind? Or is it a struggle by the Kingdom of Judea, the tribe of Judah against the Kingdom of Israel in the time of Isaiah when there was conflict that divided Israel into two Kingdoms?

As far as contemporary events go, Syria is being leveled by ISIL militants who are funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, assisted by the Jews on the Golan heights and trained by the CIA in Jordan.

The article goes on to say

“… in Rosenberg’s Twelfth Imam series, he postulates that the emergence of the Mahdi, the Muslim messiah, leads to the rise of a new Islamic caliphate in the Middle East that prepares to decapitate Israel by launching nuclear warheads from Damascus.”

Postulates. Maybe thumb suck would be a better term. Let’s take a look at Twelfth Imam.

“Twelfth Imam, a messianic figure in Shiite Islamic eschatology.”

This figure is grossly misunderstood in the Western Christian World. Also known as the Mahdi, his destiny is closely linked to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. He and his followers help to protect Christians and together they will fight the false Messiah also known as the Anti-Christ. Remarkably, it is has been the Shiite Muslims, along with many Sunni we must add, who have played a major role in protecting and caring for some of the most ancient Christian communities in Syria, Iraq and Egypt, where recently they have been terrorized, killed in mass murders and the infrastructure of their communities destroyed by ISIL, ISIS or Al-Qeada, pick which ever acronym these madmen choose to use for themselves in either the past, present or future media propaganda display.

The Caliphate Rosenberg is talking about is the Caliphate fought for by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey where Wahhabism will rule, not a “Caliphate” fought for by Syria.

See: Making Sense Of The Middle East – Return of the Wahabi Caliphate and the Creation of Greater Israel

There is a riddle to all of this. If Isaiah mourns the splitting of the Kingdom into the Kingdom of Israel, the Hebrews and the Kingdom of Judea, the Israelites, and the firstborn is Ephraim and the the grandfather of Yeshua and when Isaiah says that Jacob will fade away, who is he talking about? And if Jacob is Israel being the Kingdom of Israel of the Joseph tribes, then who is “Holy One of Israel?” And who is looting Damascus? Who is plundering it? And then go back to Isaiah:

Woe to the many nations that rage— they rage like the raging sea! Woe to the peoples who roar—
they roar like the roaring of great waters!

Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters, when he rebukes them they flee far away,
driven before the wind like chaff on the hills, like tumbleweed before a gale.

In the evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they are gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us.

The name Yeshua, or more commonly translated as Joshua, means “salvation.” In Isaiah the reprimand is:

Because you forgot the God of
16. your salvation and the rock of your strength you did not remember, therefore you shall plant pleasant plants and twigs
17 of strangeness you shall sow. (11) And in the day of your planting you shall make it grow and in the morning you shall make your seed sprout out
18. but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and sick anguish. (PP)

Yeshua in the New Testament, translated into the Greek is Jesus, came from Nazareth in the Northern Kingdom of Israel, his father was Joseph and his mission was “salvation.” Damascus was central to the early Christian Church and even today, some of the oldest Christian communities live there. If these people are the descendants of the Northern tribes of Israel, of the Joseph tribes, of Ephraim and Joshua, then it is Israel itself that is being laid to waste in Syria. If this text is not read in the context of the historical time in which it was written, but rather as a future prediction,  then those nations who are involved in destroying Syria should take heed of the last verses of Isaiah 17.

    The Question; What is the origin of Jesus?
    Those who will seek a material, corporeal answer, and accept nothing less are the many, yet their wishes to believe shape what they see and hear, and what they imagine.
    What they cannot see, cannot hear, and cannot imagine is the truth. No evidence, outside of an unsupported biblical record, in any way proves the material existence of the Savior.
    The need for humanity is for their God to be in their image, and they accept nothing less.
    Thus, the search across time for someone, anyone, to fulfill this wish for God in mans’ image.
    Rome clearly understood this phenomenon, and realized early on that the Savior had to be a corporeal being-yet also had to be a God. Rome sought to capture the mystic potency of the Savior, and at the same time to bind those to the image that would uphold the Empire. They succeeded. Some say Rome never fell, that it merely transformed, and they have powerful arguments to bolster this claim. To suggest, however that this political success is due to a corporeal Savior, is a strange belief indeed.

    Lets see if I see know how to read. According to this article an ancient prophecy foretells of Muslims protecting Christians of ancient linage from an evil cult. These Christians under attack are Israelite’s by heritage and prove their linage by the spoken language of Jesus.
    The “Northern Kingdom of Israel, referred to as Hebrews” are the evil forces that broke off of the original group that included the Christian Israelites. Hebrews attacking Israelites=Saudi attacking Maaloula through Syria.
    I get the feeling the zionist need to eradicate the evidence and in so doing establish their lie as a truth. Until that siege of Maaloula I have never heard of any civilization speaking Aramaic, and their it is, living in simplicity in Damascus, protected by Assad. How did I do?

    Fired Vatican translator Mauro Biglino’s The Unexpected Bible (youtube) sheds a whole new light on the subject. Just who WERE the Elohim (plural BTW) & why did Moses align w/ Yaweh over the others. Impressed by his potentially lethal glory/KEVOD that burned his eyes/face, requiring a veil be worn from then on? And what – no original sin > just you made the choice now you must live w/ the consequences of that choice? And what’s w/ the burnt meat smell – or is burnt flesh what’s really preferred? Haven’t humans been set to the torch for centuries – to please the god/gods?

    Interesting too is youtube The Gospel of Caesar, the backstory of Francesco Carotta’s book, Jesus was Caesar – on the Julian Origin of Christianity. Carotta explains how both the words Caesar and Jesus would be abbreviated in Greek > Caesar = IS and Jesus = IS. IS + IS = ISIS
    And note the RED SHIELDS of Caesar’s Roman soldiers. The German translation of RED SHIELD is ROTHSCHILD.

    Julius Caesar became pontifex maximus – greatest high priest in the ancient Roman religion; today applied to the Pope – in 63 BC & was granted the title dictator for life of the Roman REPUBLIC. He was NEVER emperor of the Roman EMPIRE which came into existence in the aftermath of his brutal assassination. Caesar’s historical wax effigy on the tropaeum co-opted into mythical Jesus on the cross?

    Is the Brotherhood of the Serpent/anti-Christ blatantly mocking true Christianity via ROTHSCHILD & ISIS?

    • Not Clueless  May 11, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      Caesar was often referred to as ‘savior’; his military victories equated to miracles; his astonishing benevolence of forgiving his enemies (who ultimately betrayed/killed him as they feared he aspired to be king); his redistribution of land (wealth) to the poor & veterans; his birth as a son of god (Venus) & death/elevation to divine status (god) both heralded by blazing comets in the sky! All historical fact whereas historical Jesus is sorely missing!

      How DID the Christian faith arise & pervade the entire Roman Republic/Empire? The answer is the wax effigy affixed to the tropaeum and the murdered people’s champion whose legend spread via his military veterans throughout the land that was Rome – the man/god, Divus Iulius!

      Events after Caesar’s death

      Who dare say the Sun is false? He and no other warns us when dark uprisings threaten, when treachery and hidden wars are gathering strength. He and no other was moved to pity Rome on the day that Caesar died, when he veiled his radiance in gloom and darkness, and a godless age feared everlasting night. Yet in this hour Earth also and the plains of Ocean, ill-boding dogs and birds that spell mischief, sent signs which heralded disaster. How oft before our eyes did Etna deluge the fields of the Cyclopes with a torrent from her burst furnaces, hurling thereon balls of fire and molten rocks. Germany heard the noise of battle sweep across the sky and, even without precedent, the Alps rocked with earthquakes. A voice boomed through the silent groves for all to hear, a deafening voice, and phantoms of unearthly pallor were seen in the falling darkness. Horror beyond words, beasts uttered human speech; rivers stood still, the earth gaped upon; in the temples ivory images wept for grief, and beads of sweat covered bronze statues. King of waterways, the Po swept forests along in the swirl of his frenzied current, carrying with him over the plain cattle and stalls alike. Nor in that same hour did sinister filaments cease to appear in ominous entrails or blood to flow from wells or our hillside towns to echo all night with the howl of wolves. Never fell more lightning from a cloudless sky; never was comet’s alarming glare so often seen. – Virgil

    • Mike Kay  May 11, 2015 at 5:00 pm

      Caesar was simply the title for the Roman ruling family, instituted upon the devolution of the republic into a totalitarian regime. Caesar was both temporal and spiritual head of Rome. You write of the return of the solar cult, and the identification of Caesar with the Sun, Sol Invictus. This was in keeping with role of Caesar throughout the history of Rome.
      Rome appropriated Iasous/Jesus, and installed him into their new cult of christianity under the auspices of Constantine. This new cult ripped off the mystic Gnostic sects, which included Syrian, Egyptian, Greek and Semitic telestai. Iasous/Jesus was stolen from them, the last avatar of the Light.
      Christianity was designed from the very beginning to be a degenerate and weak faith. It lived up to its billing. Further, its tendency toward murder on a grand scale served Caesar wonderfully. BTW, it was Constantine who crafted the blueprint for Feudalism, the political system that arose after Rome transformed fully into the new judaism, the religion of law and murder.

    • Not Clueless  May 11, 2015 at 11:37 pm

      @Mike Kay
      Have you read Carotta’s book/viewed the video Gospel of Caesar? Have you read Gary Courtney’s Et tu, Judas? Then Fall Jesus!, Michael Parenti’s The Assassination Of Julius Caesar: A People’s History Of Ancient Rome (New Press People’s History), or Joseph Atwill’s Caesar’s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus: Flavian Signature Edition?

      I’m not primarily in disagreement w/ you other than some of your facts are confused. Are you not discerning the difference between the Republic & the Empire? Julius Caesar had gone against the Optimates (the oligarchy) and was aligned w/ the populares – Roman political leaders who were on the side of “the people” as indicated by their name. Caesar Augustus, Julius Caesar’s sole heir who defeated Anthony & Cleopatra to become the 1st EMPEROR of the now Roman EMPIRE, at first feigned continuing w/ the populares in order to ensure his victory over his opposition, but ultimately swung back to the Optimates. Big Difference!

      I feel strongly that Julius Caesar’s legacy was co-opted & blended w/ sun god worship, particularly Mithras, perhaps 2 Jewish rebels including Judas the Galilean & maybe Simon of Peraea who rebelled & was killed by the Romans in 4 BC – identified as the messiah of Gabriel’s Revelation – plus who knows what else w/ Josephus & Constantine highly suspect. SOMEONE went to a lot of trouble to malign Julius Caesar & invent the mythical pacifist/crucified Jesus. One published researcher is hot on the trail of this mystery.

    • Mike Kay  May 12, 2015 at 3:20 pm

      The time period of interest to the inception of the christian cult was from the second to the fourth centuries, CE. The rise and fall of the solar cult, which was associated with the emperor, occurred within this time span, as did the waxing and waning of Mithraism.
      Of interest here is the formative actions that resulted in the final version of christianity. Mr. Atwill with his Flavian theory offers some compelling evidence, however despite this he completely ignores the mystic origins of Jesus. I do understand that hard nosed scholars tend to look down upon supernatural origins for their theories, yet the refusal to understand the mystic nature of the avatar, and the significance of this last avatar absolutely guarantee that no coherent picture of the origins of christianity, or of the world it emerged in, can ever be arrived at.
      In order to understand christianity, one must understand how mystic realities become perverted toward political ends.
      I have found no evidence that banking, esp. fractal reserve banking which employs usury, arose due to any christian order or impetus.
      The important realization here is that the late Roman empire birthed the christian cult, gave it eminence, and standing, and promoted both its excesses and its perversions. It was due to this origin that christianity enjoyed its cozy relationship with the ruling political and military powers, and it was due to this origin that christianity quickly mastered the technique of genocide.

    • Not Clueless  May 12, 2015 at 9:37 pm

      I’m of the opinion that all 3 major religions are ultimate control systems. There is no archaeology supporting OT foray into Egypt, King David/Solomon or 1st Temple. It was difficult for me to let go of Jesus as a real person (I’m not sure what mystic aspect you’re attaching to Jesus the man or myth) and to rationally explore the possibility that Julius Caesar was the main template for the Jesus myth. I guess you do not count the comets associated w/ Caesar’s birth & death as either supernatural/mystical or anything that Virgil wrote re Caesar’s death.

      “Haruspication was one of the most commonly practiced forms of divination in ancient Rome but now it is believed that the practice goes back much further to around second millennium BC in the Near East where the ancient Hittites and Babylonians practiced rituals that comprised of studying animal entrails with the purpose of divining the future. Today the art of divination by haruspication is mostly associated with the ancient Romans and the most famous example of this was the prophecy of the death of Julius Caesar which was supposed to have been made by a noted haruspex of the time, Spurinna. He had warned Caesar to beware of the Ides of March and based on the prophecy even Caesar’s wife Calphurnia had begged him not to go to the Senate on that fateful day.” Was this practice ‘mystical’?

      Christianity as it arose is certainly highly suspect. Caesar embodied the characteristics of STO – his successors did not.

    I don’t think the bible is any more valid to us than Greek mythology. The trouble is that it is believed by many Jews and Christians. Biblical prophecy is a get-out-of-jail card for Jews, particularly the Israelis. They seem to be aiming to fulfill these fantasies, and then can claim it was all Gd’s plan.

    What a load of crap.

    If only one million people could act together and not worry about their security every shinning moment of every shinning day and do something amazing to scare the stinking idiots out from under their rocks. The stinking idiots would be so racked with guilt or scared that they would buckle like a folding table and admit giving power to people who abuse drugs, treat women like trash, and execute anyone who looks at the wrong way like the Romans did 2 thousand years ago. Wahhabi like tendencies seem more evil than the Zionist’s war order, or maybe they stole that too. It is like the end of the world for the ME and any country at the wrong end of the stupid idiot brigade.

    I know the pre-Israeli army used Wahhabi like Arabs drugged out of their mind to terror attack women and kids in Jafah, Al Nakba. Now ISIS is doing the same thing but bragging about it. The stinking idiots in congress support this like Britain did after the Balfour declaration. Stinking idiots.

    The problem I have with this article is that it would appear that Armageddon is being used as a Zionist political agenda. Like the holohoax it is a tool to insure that stinking idiots grasp the wheel of the end times and floor the accelerators of war. They are all stinking idiots, those who started this before Babylon fell, and the stinking idiots in Congress who continue to support it until the US fails like square wheel.

    I have to hand it to the abrahamic religions, they have succeeded in replacing knowledge with obedience, experience with piety, reality with control.
    The fraud that closes the eyes to the true nature of the self became codified, and now once again, religion and politics merge. Few moderners know what happened last time the world suffered this merger. History is boring to those who have so many more important things to do, such as discuss the price of fish.
    Thus the hallowing of abrahamic dogma provides the false sense that the God of rules and murder has something significant to sell you. For the indoctrinated, this is the whole deal.
    This entire piece is all about attempting to decode oh so significant passages crafted and preserved to scare the jews and their descendents into following those rules, a code that isn’t simply about whats’ written, but that which carries with it the attitude, the subservience, the unquestioning acceptance that spreads the infection.

    I consider myself a citizen of the Kingdom of God…to this consideration it allows me to look objectively at the various kingdoms of the worlds and how some have conspired together to implement their new world order under the lead and for the benefit of the corporations and banks. This objectivity and search for the truth leads me to sites like Veterans Today. One very disturbing finding my research which is simply a study of history has lead me to is that Christianity is simply warmed over Greek Philosophy and has very little to do with the beliefs of the Messiah or the Apostles that spread the message of the Kingdom of God after His ascension to our Father. It is a very interesting study if one is so inclined to know the truth.

    PS. I don’t consider the book of Revelation to be authoritative in other words it wasn’t written by John the Apostle.

    PSS. Have you ever considered how the dispensational premillennialism that so many “Christians” follow for their end time beliefs will have one scripture as a basis of many paragraphs of explanation of that simple scripture. This total flies in the face of he command that the scriptures are not open to private interpretation. The scripture means what it says and we don’t get to tell people what it means, when we do, many errors are incurred.

    Again, your sources Gordon LOL. These scriptures were all written by the same old Jews who rejected Jesus during the three days in the temple — why? Becasue they were involved in the Pharisaic mafia, that’s why. I have a scripture in which the disciples themselves discovered a cave holding an enormous trove of plundered treasure the Pharisaic mafia had looted, extorted and smuggled. This same scripture tells of jesus’ very first disciple, who attended the Crib, a cousin of Caesar Augustus himself, a centurion who begged his Lord’s permission to take a legion and wipe out the Khazarian mafia of the time.
    By the way. ISIS is not ‘leveling’ Syria. The swine are being mown down like dead grass, by the heroic Syrian Arab Army. ErDOGan and Salman the Satanic are reduced to burying the Brotherhood VS. Wahhabist hatchet and launching an overt invasion, to avert the wipeout of their terrorist vermin. That folly will trigger the Iranian and Russian responses.
    There may still be time for Dempsey and Obama to come to their senses and combine with Bashar al-Assad. The slimy Ashton Carter will sink in his own swamp.
    Never mind the Septuagint. Consider the living Master who walks this earth. He has suffered for Syria, in 1974. There is no way He will now alow Syria, where dozens of saints walked, and were martyred, to fall.

    there it is and it makes sense to me.. Damascus is the REAL “Israel” but what is called that today from 1948 onward, was plucked from the Bible to confuse everyone! the lying luciferian satanic cult that kills semites on a regular basis while claiming to BE semitic, terrorizes the world with their threat of a “Sampson Option”, is more rightly called “izrahell”.

    “So much blood has been shed by the Church because of an omission from the Gospel: “Ye shall be indifferent as to what your neighbor’s religion is.” Not merely tolerant of it, but indifferent to it. Divinity is claimed for many religions; but no religion is great enough or divine enough to add that new law to its code.”
    -Mark Twain, A Biography
    The bible and associated religious gospels were written by ordinary mortals at times far earlier in world history than the scientific facts were established about our planet, our solar system and the infinite small of our current concepts of the atomic theory of matter and more. This was a period when human ignorance was at its peak. People then did not understand that combustion was rapid oxidation. In fact they did not know what oxygen even was. Even much later another theory of combustion called the phlogistin theory of combustion also reigned until it was discarded based on scientific proof. People they did not understand that a person could die by carbon monoxide poisoning when living in an unvented closed space with combustion or burning using up all the oxygen. Causes of diseases like scurvy from deficiency of vitamin C or pellagra from deficiency of the B vitamins, or goiter from the deficiency of iodine were not understood when the bible was written and even altered in translation many centuries ago…

      . People did not understand what radiation was, that all electro magnetic waves are basically the same only with different wavelengths, that they all travel at a constant speed of about 186,000 miles/second, and when you observe a star many light years away you are viewing not what it looks like in the present but many years in the past. People did not know the difference between nuclear fission and nuclear fusion because those concepts were not even invented yet. One could on and on and on.
      The great Founders of America believed so strongly in freedom of religious belief that they guaranteed such personal freedom by our precious Constitution. Let everyone believe what they want about religion. As Mark Twain above says, let us all be indifferent to what others believe and respect their beliefs. But let’s not return to the dark ages where masses of humanity were killed or suffered because of the ignorant claims of ignorant gospel writers in religious texts made centuries before the enlightenment of Science and Scientific discovery based on experiments and facts and reason, not ignorant bigoted hatred. Let’s put mankind first with reason and intelligence and science, not last with human suffering and destruction from arrogant purveyors of hate. Let the Golden Rule be our guide: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

    A german historian assembled massive evidence about an ongoing project through the ages: the well hidden forgery of biblical and historical data. This project goes way back as the misleading term of “christian-judaic-community of values”, which our officals regularly use, shows us.

    The merging of the old and new testament into the holy book of the christians itself would by itself constitute such forgery. This historian had gathered tremendeous amount of clear evedience, that right from the monasteries in Europe, some monks deliberately forged the records, made “wrong” or partly wrong translations, which by the time were inherited into the archive of the church. The Scofield rapture scam, the absolutely fantastic fairy tale of the Mormons, the zionist evangelists (who already seem to be totally raptured from any meaningful thinking by someone for smoe sinister political purposes), it all adds up to a conglomerate of holy ideology, which can be used to pit people against others and drive division into societies, which formerly were rather cohesive. I’m not part of that game any more, but I reclaim my own spiritual rights, otherwise I even couldn’t go up on stage and sing a love song for the audience.

    Not enough people have called Zionists on their Aliyah Deception. Zionists were impatiently waiting for YHWH to signal their return to the “Promised Land” so they concocted a mystical ruse to MAKE it happen. It took an enormous amount of lying and self-deception + getting control of the mainstream news media and Hollywood. “6 million holocausted” was the Kabbalistic number/alphabet transliteration magic to signal YHWH’s call to return to “Jerusalem”..(or was that Dar es Salam?).

    The Holocaust Deception was necessary to obtain support of the Orthodox Jews to populate the Israel Project. It worked well enough with a lot of false flag terrorism against Jewish communities to bulk up the Aliyah. Permitting the 6,000,000 claim to remain unchallenged permitted repeated use of false flags.

    Now the “Armageddon” ruse of the “End Times” ploy will endanger Damascus and millions more will die.. Dr. Ezzat has brought evidence that the Synagogue of Satan is even aiming at the wrong “Promised Land.”

    • adil  May 10, 2015 at 9:00 am

      No. Primises land is right. It cannot be daresalam or any other. It has to be place where large city population is not possible in biblical times and thus it is Jerusalem.
      But now the promise. It was mere invention to excite pawns like Gordon’s (non Levites) to commit genocide of whoever was living there. Promised land is mere excuse for genocide.!

      Btw, outside Jerusalem is not safe either because demented yhwh calls for endlavement of entire world.! And Jerusalem will be merely command and control center guarded by Hebrews pawns.

    Charismatic christians do the same, they use the scripture which sais, I will bless them that bless you and curse them that curse you, the reality is that this scripture is actually prophesy concerning Christ Jesus, for to honor Him is indeed a blessing, funny how they seem so knowledgeable, yet twist the scriptures to the demise of the many and themselves.

    Thanks Katherine Fisk also for link http://thephaser.com/2015/04/who-is-the-anti-christ-now/ “… the alliances clear, the state of Israel a Rothschild construct… preparing their fully engineered armaggeddon… believing immortality will come when they are seen as gods in the eyes of the deceived, mind controlled to expect their armageddon with a twist as a move of “God” (as in the Creator of life on Earth)…a defamation of character ..NWO rulefrom Jerusalem, claiming a throne and a crown they will never wear. …organized crime with stolen nukes in an alliance against humanity ….conditioning people to wait longingly for the heavens to open up and one to step out preferably in long flowing robes declaring “I am he” or “I am she” ( entertain that because the only way this planet can survive is through nurturing and loving it back to life, all creation and cycles slowly and systematically tampered with….consider what is sitting right under your nose….they follow no “rules of play” as we are held to…doubt falls away, the few who see have duty and responsibility weighing for the greater good .

      Can anyone explain to me how the Northern Kingdom of Israel is called Hebrews while the southern kingsom of Judea is called Israelites? I believe that the Kingdom of Israel is where we get Israelites, or those of the tribe of Israel. If one studies it a bit, the Old Testement shows how the Tribes of Judea are often at war with the Israelites of the tribes of Israel. I believe the article has it backwards.

    • moneytalks  May 11, 2015 at 12:13 am

      I believe that you are correct — it is backwards .

    The “God” of modern Jews is Lucifer. How else to explain their all-consuming hatred of Christians and Christ himself. The “666” as their favorite symbol, on their national flag with it’s 6 triangles, 6 sides. 6 angles..Their Kol Nidre “prayer” in which they absolve themselves of all lying. cheating and thievery committed against the goy over the coming year…The torture that they reveled in against Christians in Russia and post-war German ( not to mention Palestine ) is/was cruel beyond words. The anti-Christ will go out of his way to appeal to them. He will, at first, serve them completely. Unlike God, though, Satan hates his servants ( and the entire human race )..

    • sikel  May 10, 2015 at 12:23 am

      Bill, they’ve been worshipping a demonic Luciferian deity from time immemorial, ever since Abraham was told by their Yahweh/Jehovah to sacrifice his only son Isaac to him. Now, if anyone has two, mind you only TWO glial cells functioning in their cranial cavity and can’t deduce that that was a satanic blood offering, well, I don’t know can then. The proof is all there, brazenly staring at you in the face.

    • moneytalks  May 11, 2015 at 12:37 am

      @ Sikel

      You are making a correct logical deduction . However , religion and politics are not normally about logical truths ; instead , they are normally about divine and authoritative prescriptions for matters of life or death ; they are about getting people to act according to some authority . Humans are more creatures of habit or traditions than creatures of logic ; unless they have a strong habit or tradition of logic that was passed along from the ancient Greeks .

  18. Serenity  May 9, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    Fascinating topic subject to different interpretations,as is most scripture…Religion itself is under intense scrutiny, as it should be. Then there is the “God” question…Quantum physics, rather than religion, may be closer to the truth. Or, perhaps it is in the Oneness of All of Creation. It seems to be mostly a personal journey of inner discovery or lack thereof. However, in these troubled times, many are waking up to a higher consciousness & are challenging old patterns of belief. The Golden Rule is a good place to practice…

  19. williammartin  May 9, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    Oddly the “Israelites” were a Spiritual Nation not a physical one. Bought from the 12 Tribes.

    The Hebrews: Lived under 600+ laws (Broke Them) Given 10 Commandments who then BARTERED for the BEST ONE in which Christ gave 2 GREATER Commands which the entire LAW would hang as well as the prophets. (Both of LOVE.)

    Luke 21:20-24
    20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

    • adil  May 10, 2015 at 9:08 am

      Spiritual? LOL 😀

      You are not aware who were bloodsuckers behind creation of Abraham – the fiction. And frequently calling for 4 generation genocide, complete village genocide (does dresden rings a bell?)…. YHWH is genocideal bloodthirsty God/satan right at birth or invention depending on your facts.

  20. moneytalks  May 9, 2015 at 2:19 pm

    Any destruction of Damascus by human forces would be a good example of a self-fulfilling prophecy . Using bible stories of ancient men’ s fantasies of revenge as an excuse for wanton destruction is just that — an excuse — since man has free will he can just as easily say [ God told us to forget about fulfilling bible prophecy because it is not necessary for sustaining life ] . No one could ever prove that God did not tell you to forget about destroying Damascus . No where in the Holy Bible does it say that humanity is commanded by God to fulfill the prophecies of revenge for an ancient injustice that very few living souls know anything about . If you leave destructions strictly up to God , no one would ever have anything to worry about so long as no one claims that they had no free will in the matter and that God told them to do it ( in which case it would not be strictly up to God ) .

      I don’t know much about Brownback, but judging by his enemies, like that Christian-hating Jew, Jon Stewart, he must have some decency and patriotism in him. But his biblicist foray shows he’s been brainwashed to overlook entirely the New Covenent that excludes the Christian-hating atheists and Talmudic Judaics of Israel for so long as they deny Christ. We see in a recent poll that Republicans, two to one, would support Israel’s interests over their own country’s, and therefore, presumably, ersatz Israel and the Talmud over the Gospel of John. But then again, of what relevance other than self-righteousness are Christian dogma in an empire based on lies and the mass murder of millions to keep the orgy of materialism, animal appetite, and profits rolling?

    and every week they pass the plates, drink the blood, and silently nod in agreement when asked for their children as cannon fodder. It is Tantalus. The Chinese have a very simple way of viewing the product of religions that are divisive and interpreted according to the individual. It causes dispersion.
    It is visible on the battle field and every town or city.
    From Hwan, hexagram # 59, “shows its subject, amid the dispersion, hurrying to his contrivance”
    “shows its subject discarding any regard to his own person.”
    “shows its subject scattering the (different) parties (in the state); which leads to great good fortune. From the dispersion (he collects again good men standing out, a crowd) like a mound, which is what ordinary men would not have thought of.”

    Strange strange Mr Gordon… Posting a biblical article? Are you becoming a bit sympathetic to the theist world view ;)?

    Anyways, the return of Jesus PBUH is probably very soon, of course only Allah knows exactly when, but it’s soon and I hope to be one of his soldiers against the Dajjal (aka antichrist)… If only the Israelites were faithful to their pact with God to obey His prophets, but they rejected Jesus and then they and with them the Christians rejected Muhammad (SAW) even though all of Allah’s prophets taught the same message, just secondary details differed.. But what can we do, the worldy-life deludes most of the people except those who ask their Creator for guidance…

    • adil  May 10, 2015 at 9:16 am

      Where do you place Buddhism? You haven read enough otherwise you can see Islam and Judaism are two sides of same coin. Both are very anti spiritual and thus both are satanic. Also, just because Christ was real doesnt means Christians are not fooled by Old Testament. Only spirituality in west were that of Celtics and nothing remains of that. Christians can as easily converted into cannon fodder as non Levites and typical Sunnis/wahabis or muslim in general.
      – a former sunni. Are you gonna stone me to death?

    • adil  May 10, 2015 at 9:22 am

      Middle East spirituality were that of Egyptians and Sumerians. Indian subcontinent was only Buddhism (sadly Hinduism is anti spirituality) and probably Sikhism (with a mix of militarism – obviously learning from anhiliatiin of Buddhists).

    • A Muslim  May 10, 2015 at 11:39 am

      Poor poor fellow, muddled up and confused which is reflected in your comments… Tell me, what made you leave Islam? Which part of the worldy-life deluded you? Was it the women? Money? Power? Or a bit of both… Its always such things which make people leave Islam… Good riddance to bad rubbish :). Goodbye.
