- Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
- Tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.” (Daniel 5:26-28)
“I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof…Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter [subsequent generation of city, always female] of [wicked] Babylon.” (Zechariah 2:1-7)
We get a better grip on the message when we apply the same abstraction about the “tools” used to “measure” the degree of function vs dysfunction of individuals when we apply this concept to those used by clinicians to assess for problems.
Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9)
Over the last 2 weeks, how often have you been bothered by any of the following problems (a-h)?
Not at all (0) Several days (1). More than half the days (2). Nearly every day (3)
The people in the first century AD who read John’s account would have filtered them through the Old Testament histories and analogies, and so should we as we read the following:
“There was given me [John] a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.”
This was to measure to what extent either functional spirituality or dysfunctional apostasy exists, not in the building, but in the people in the building.
The first account of re-building God’s original temple destroyed in 586 BC by Babylon is key to recognizing the pattern of events in the last account of re-building the temple destroyed in 70 AD by the daughter of Babylon / Rome.
After conquering Babylon and absorbing its territories into its empire, Persia not only allowed, but supported the rebuilding of the temple and re-establishment of temple worship by
- suppression of opposition from Israel’s enemies,
- security around the perimeter,
- and financing.
Notice, this was done by a foreign king who by all accounts became a worshipper of the LORD God of heaven, no doubt influenced by the monotheistic Zoroastrianism of his Persian upbringing.
“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia...he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all his people? go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem…(Ezra 1:1-3)
“Now these are the children of [Babylon’s] province [of Judah] that went up out of the captivity, of those which had been carried away…and came again unto Jerusalem and Judah…
About 25 years later In the second year of Darius the king came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel…governor of Judah, and to Joshua…the high priest, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts…Consider your ways. Ye looked for much, and, lo it came to little; and when ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the LORD of hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man unto his own house.
Then Zerubbabel…and Joshua…the high priest, with all the remnant of the people, obeyed the voice of the LORD their God, and the words of Haggai the prophet…and they came and did work in the house of the Lord of hosts, their God.” (Haggai 1)
Notice how God doesn’t work anything single-handedly. After Cyrus completed his assigned task of enabling the rebuilding of the temple, Zerubbabel and Joshua pick up the reins of leadership to ensure the completion of the project, which naturally encounters opposition.
“And he shewed me Joshua / Yeshua / Jesus [the human High Priest] standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?…And the angel of the LORD protested unto Joshua, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
- If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house,
- and shalt also keep my courts,[instead of having them given over to the Gentiles to tread down] and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.
- Hear now, O Joshua / Yeshua / Jesus the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold,
- I will bring forth my servant the Branch and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.”(Zechariah 3)
“And the angel that talked with me came again, and…said unto me, What seest thou? And I said…a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof….
This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel / son of David, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain [symbol of insurmountable obstacle]? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone [of the temple] thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it…The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.” (Zechariah 4:1-10)
“Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? And…What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? And he answered me and said…These are the two anointed ones / Messiahs, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth.“
“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5)
“And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying…take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua / Yeshua / Jesus the son of Josedech, the high priest; And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying,
Behold the man whose name / identity is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear [endure] the glory [struggle],
- and shall sit and rule upon his throne;
- and he shall be a priest upon his throne:
and the counsel of peace shall be between them both positions of Priest and King in one Vicar of God. And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God.” (Zechariah 6:9-15)
“Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the LORD God of Israel; Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither. But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God.
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (II Corinthians 6:14-18)
Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until…the days of Artaxerxes…king of Persia…
The refusal of these Jews to collaborate with their neighbors is a completely different attitude from the behavior of the priests who welcomed Alexander the Great as their Savior from Persian taxation.
And when [the High Priest] Jaddus understood that Alexander was not far from the city, he went out in procession, with the priests and the multitude of the citizens. The procession was venerable, and the manner of it different from that of other nations…Alexander, when he saw the multitude at a distance, in white garments, while the priests stood clothed with fine linen, and the high-priest in purple and scarlet clothing, with his mitre on his head, having the golden plate whereon the name of God was engraved, he approached by himself…saluted the high-priest. The Jews / priestly rulers also did all together, with one voice, salute Alexander, and encompass him about…And when he went up into the temple, he offered sacrifice to God, according to the high-priest’s direction, and magnificently treated both the high-priest and the priests…the next day he called them to him, and bid them ask what favors they pleased of him; whereupon the high-priest desired that they might…pay no tribute on the seventh year. He granted all they desired.
Allowing Alexander to act as priest in offering sacrifice is a pagan custom demonstrating the sonship of the acting priest to the god to whom sacrifice is being made. Alexander’s presumptuous self-identification with the God of Israel, and the priests’ collaboration with it, was blasphemy.
“Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign..And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper…And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong. But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense. And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the Lord, that were valiant men: And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed…Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar. And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests…thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him. And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land.” (II Chronicles 26)
Compared to Solomon’s temple, all that the poor refugees could cobble together with their limited resources was just a paltry little house.
“many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice… Who is left among you that saw this house in her fist glory? and how do ye see it now? is it not in your eyes in comparison of it as nothing?” (Ezra 3:12, Haggai 2:3)
And here we see the emerging pattern of collaboration with the Fourth Empire.
King Herod put a golden eagle outside of the Temple of Jerusalem. Like other military standards, this eagle was carried into battle. The presence of the eagle meant the presence of the Roman Legion. By placing one at the gates, Herod was making a powerful statement regarding Jerusalem’s sovereignty under Rome.
Making idols was forbidden to the Jewish people, even if there was no attempt to worship them. Yet the Romans regarded eagle standards as holy symbols, anointing them on special days. Two respected teachers of the law, Judas and Matthias, spoke to religious scholars about this violation.
A group of these men pulled down the golden eagle and cut it into pieces. The king’s captain detained 40 participants, along with Matthias and Judas, and brought them before Herod…Herod had those responsible for the sedition burned alive. He appointed a new high priest: one subordinate to Herod and Rome…
The eagle standard accompanied Titus during his siege of Jerusalem. This led to the demolition of the Second Temple. As for Herod, his heirs continued to rule, even after the destruction of Judea and the Diaspora of the Jewish people.
Israel, choose your leaders and your allies wisely.
You may remember that Jesus Christ also rebuked the temple rulers for, not paganism exactly, but, well, capitalism. And he, too, was put to death.
According to biblical prophecy, the end of the world, AKA the Day of the LORD, explodes into action when his two chosen ones / messiahs – like Zerubabbel and Joshua – speak out for him at a newly built temple.
We can be sure that this latest temple will, like the previous, be built by permission of Israel’s current political ally which procures concessions from hostile opponents to allow construction, provides military protection against attacks, and promotes itself as the Savior from War and Securer of Peace. This will be another monument to hubris, no house of prayer, another den of thieves raking in a fortune from tourism.
“But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months [1,240 days].” (Revelation 11:1-2)
Israel was invariably betrayed by the Gentile empires with whom they made alliances for protection – Assyria, Babylon, Greece, Rome. This doesn’t change for the current iteration of the last Empire upon which Israel depends for security. Currently, that is America.
Review America’s abandonment of Christians to the Turkish Moslems after WWI for a preview.
Asa Jennings was a failed small-town Methodist minister from upstate New York working for the YMCA in Smyrna, Turkey, in 1922, when he saved a quarter of a million Christians from perishing in a brutal final chapter of the Armenian Genocide.
“A private individual, a guy without portfolio, who held a minor position in the YMCA, came forward and put together this astonishing rescue…”
Smyrna, known today as Izmir, had been a cosmopolitan port under Greek rule…But after Turkish armed forces defeated the Greeks in September 1922, they began a religious cleansing, with executions and arrests sparking mob violence, rape, and pillage.
In a frantic effort to escape, hundreds of thousands of terrified Christians fled to the quay along the harbor in hopes of finding safe passage. The Turks responded by lighting the city on fire. “A half a million people, packed into a narrow strip of pavement, maybe a mile and a half, two miles long, as a giant fire comes at them, basically pushing them into the sea…”
Jennings, a short, mild-mannered fellow with back problems, had managed to get his family on a ship out with other Americans, but he stayed behind in an effort to help several thousand refugees in safe houses along the quay. Horrified by what he saw, he first bribed an Italian ship captain to spirit away the people from the safe houses. Then he hatched an even bigger plan, securing a flotilla of empty Greek merchant ships to save thousands more…
beyond protecting its own citizens, the US government, with growing commercial ties to Turkey [and hopes for buffer against Russia to the north], was unwilling to get involved…America’s top officer in the region, Admiral Mark Bristol, played tennis outside Constantinople (present-day Istanbul) as Smyrna burned.
You can’t seriously believe that the American government acts on a biblical promise to be blessed for blessing Israel. The bottom line is always about money and power.
With Israel attacking Gaza for a second week, United States President Joe Biden and his administration are sticking to a long-established script in Washington, expressing unequivocal support for Israel and its “legitimate right to defend itself” from Hamas rocket attacks…
Former US President Harry Truman was the first world leader to recognise Israel when it was created in 1948… right after World War II, when the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union was taking shape.
The Middle East, with its oil reserves and strategic waterways (think the Suez Canal) was a key battleground for superpower hegemonic influence. The US was taking over from severely weakened European powers as the primary western power broker in the Middle East…
Since President Harry Truman decided to recognize Israel eleven minutes after its declaration of independence, the United States and Israel have had a special relationship, which has evolved over time into a web of military, economic, academic, bureaucratic and personal connections at the local, state and federal levels.
Israel and the United States signed a secret memorandum of understanding in 1965 that marked the beginning of the strategic alliance with the United States…in 1968…the sale of Phantom jets to Israel…established the United States as Israel’s principal arms supplier. It also marked the beginning of the U.S. policy to give Israel a qualitative military edge (QME) over its neighbors.
The Israelis wisely played up their capability to deter the Soviet Union…They began to reap the benefits of this approach on November 31, 1981, when the two countries signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) termed “strategic cooperation…”or the first time, Israel was formally recognized as a strategic ally…
And the American President is the Personification of the Abomination that makes Desolate. This is reflected in political / military power of course.
The strategic cooperation agreements…shifted at least part of the focus of relations with Israel from Congress to the Executive Branch.
In 1989, the United States accepted an Israeli invitation to establish munitions stockpiles in Israel for use by the United States…missiles, armored vehicles, and artillery ammunition…
By the end of Reagan’s term, the U.S. had prepositioned equipment in Israel, regularly held joint training exercises, began co-development of the Arrow Anti-Tactical Ballistic Missileand was engaged in a host of other cooperative military endeavors.
Today, these strategic ties are stronger than ever…
In September 2016, the two governments signed a new ten-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on military aid covering FY2019 to FY2028…the MOU provides Israel with a record $38 billion in military aid …grants plus $5 billion in missile defense appropriations…pledges to request $500 million in annual combined funding for joint U.S.-Israeli missile defense programs…
in May 2017…the Trump administration announced it was adding an additional $75 million to the MOU signed in September 2016 for Israel’s missile defense programs…
U.S. General Joseph Votel, the head of the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), made an official visit to Israel for meetings with defense officials in late April 2018. This was the first time that a head of CENTCOM had ever visited Israel on official business…
Congress passed the annual National Defense Authorization Act in December 2020…includes $3.3 billion in security assistance to Israel, and $500 million for U.S.-Israel missile defense cooperation…New in this year’s bill is the…permitting of the president to exceed the current limitation of $200 million on the transfer of PGMs in non-emergency situations.
In first, US establishes permanent military base in Israel
For the first time in history, the United States on Monday established an official, permanent military base in Israel…
Brig. Gen. Tzvika Haimovitch, head of the IAF’s Aerial Defense Command, announced the establishment of the installation on Monday evening.
“It’s nothing short of historic,” he said…US military forces are routinely based in Israel, both for joint exercises and for routine cooperation with the IDF, but Haimovitch described the new base as a meaningful change.
“We established an American base in the State of Israel, in the Israel Defense Forces, for the first time, with an American flag,” he said.
“when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors…” (Matthew 24:32-36)
Every nation that befriended Israel did so for the purpose of getting a land base in the center of the civilized world for its own benefit, not Israel’s, and will invariably sacrifice Israel to their joint enemies in the classic strategy “the enemy of my friend is my friend…when they offer better benefits. ”
most of the military operations launched since World War II have been launched by the U.S.
And American military spending dwarfs the rest of the world put together.
The oligarchs are the only ones who benefit.
“Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
That would be Israel’s Knesset.
Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us…
That would be Israel’s reliance on the American military-industrial complex to save them.
Therefore thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I lay in Zion – NOT WASHINGTON – for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation – SECURITY – : he that believeth shall not make haste.
Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report…Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong:
for I have heard from the LORD God of hosts a consumption / utterly consumed, devastation, even determined upon the whole earth. ” (Isaiah 28:14-22)
That would be World War III – desolation, destruction, devastation of the whole earth.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he [the savior] is in the desert;
go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers;
believe it not…
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” (Matthew 24:28)
The disciples certainly understood Yeshua haMashiach’s characterization of
- eagles gathering on a carcase
- as Roman peacekeepers swooping in on the spoils of war.
The eagle was THE emblem of Rome.
And it hasn’t changed. The fourth world empire stands until it is defeated at the second coming of Jesus Christ.
In our industrial age, oil is among the biggest spoils of war.
Oil was not the only goal of the Iraq War, but it was certainly the central one, as top U.S. military and political figures have attested to in the years following the invasion.
“Of course it’s about oil; we can’t really deny that,” said Gen. John Abizaid, former head of U.S. Central Command and Military Operations in Iraq, in 2007. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan agreed, writing in his memoir, “I am saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: the Iraq war is largely about oil.” Then-Sen. and now Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the same in 2007: “People say we’re not fighting for oil. Of course we are.”
For the first time in about 30 years, Western oil companies are exploring for and producing oil in Iraq from some of the world’s largest oil fields and reaping enormous profit. And while the U.S. has also maintained a fairly consistent level of Iraq oil imports since the invasion, the benefits are not finding their way through Iraq’s economy or society.
Earlier on Monday, the US army deployed fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the vicinity of the base for security.
The new base will be the fourth in the governorate, and the ninth in eastern Syria.
Can things get any worse?
Yes. The Leader of the Fourth Empire allies with, believe it or not, an Alien from Outer Space. We make this connection from the virtually identical time frames during which both rule.
“And I stood upon the sand / border of the sea [of outer space], and saw a beast / being of unknown species rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” (Revelation 13:1)
And what is the name of blasphemy? Claiming to be The Christ, the Son of God.
- and the dragon / Lucifer gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
- And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
- And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
The ultimate security, right? If you know you can’t win a war, who would start one? Silly, the the emperor with the insatiable appetite, that’s who!
- And…power was given unto him to continue forty and two months [1,240 days]. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them:
This surely begins with the two witnesses. Since they prophesy 1260 days, i.e. 20 days longer than the 42 months the Gentiles tread underfoot the court of the temple, the two witnesses must start before the Gentiles move in, because immediately upon the conclusion of their allotted time:
when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city…where also our Lord was crucified.” (Revelation 11:1-8)
The beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit is the same one who was imprisoned there. Lucifer.
- and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations…
- from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be 1,290 days.
- Blessed is he that waiteth [45 days], and cometh to the 1335 days.” (Daniel 12:10-12)
We can create a timeline from these figures:
20 days advance warning by 2 witnesses + 1,240 days Gentiles tread the court of an apparently ecumenical shared space among the monotheistic religions during which Judaism’s daily sacrifice is not welcome + 30 days to set up the abomination that makes desolate. This particular abomination can only be:
“that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 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.” (II Thessalonians 2:2-4)
During the next 45 days all hell breaks loose.
Having achieved total supremacy, the man in the white hat / riding the white horse, the Leader of the Free World is revealed as the Evil Emperor.
We all know what the Allied forces did in Germany after the fall of Nazi Germany. They raped virtually every woman civilian they could find. Historian Antony Beever himself says that the Allied forces “raped every German female from eight to 80.” He also describes this diabolical activity as “greatest phenomenon of mass rape in history.” This was so great that at least 2 million women were raped, and many of them were raped “as many as 60 to 70 times…”
Harry S. Truman hated the Japanese and wanted to treat them like beasts. He said: “The only language they seem to understand is the one we have been using to bombard them. When you have to deal with a beast you have to treat him like a beast…
Sure enough, the Japanese were treated like beasts. One marine colonel told his men: “You will take no prisoners, you will kill every yellow son-of-a-bitch, and that’s it.” There is more. Thomas Goodrich writes:
“Understandably, Japanese soldiers had no more desire to surrender and be tortured than did US soldiers fighting the Indians on the Plains of America a century earlier. Each fought to the finish, but each also saved the ‘last bullet’ for them self. If a Japanese soldier found himself surrounded with no way to escape or kill himself, he committed ‘suicide’ by walking calmly back and forth along the enemy lines until a bullet found its mark. Sometimes ten, even twenty, Japanese would thus kill themselves simultaneously…Not only were there virtually no survivors among the 30,000 men of the Japanese garrison on Saipan, but two out of every three civilians—some 22,000 in all—were either murdered or committed suicide. ‘We just blew it all up,’ admitted one marine. ‘We don’t know if there were women and children or whatever, we just blew them up…’”
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral William Leahy knew that the Japs were treated inhumanely. He said: “It is my opinion that the use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were almost defeated and ready to surrender. . . . [I]n being the first to use it, we . . . adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages…”
When US forces invaded the Japanese island of Okinawa…immediately, and in spite of the bloody fighting, US soldiers began the sexual assault on the females of the island. In one prefecture alone, during a ten-day period, over one thousand women reported being raped. Since most victims would never come forward and voluntarily suffer such shame…the number of rapes was undoubtedly much greater than reported…
So pervasive was the crime, and so frightened were the people, that hundreds of Okinawa women committed suicide by swallowing poison or by leaping from the steep cliffs of the island. With their nation’s surrender in August, 1945, Japanese officials were so concerned about the mass rape of their wives and daughters by the victors that they rounded up tens of thousands of girls from poorer families throughout the nation and all but forced them into prostitution at various brothels, or “comfort stations…”
Despite hundreds of thousands of American and Australian occupation soldiers using the rape stations, thousands more preferred taking their sex violently. In the days, weeks and months after the surrender, numerous atrocities were committed as the victors laid claim to the “spoils of war.”
In the spring of 1946, American GI’s cut the phone lines in Nagoya and raped every women they could get their hands on, including children as young as ten. At another city, US soldiers broke into a hospital and spent their time raping over 70 women, including one who had just given birth. The mother’s infant was flung to the floor and killed.
Had Allied occupation commander, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, spent even half the time on stemming rape as he spent censoring news from Japan or running down real or imagined Japanese war criminals, the attacks would have been curtailed. But, like his opposite in Europe, Gen. Eisenhower, he did not.
It wasn’t until 1996 that “U.N. Court, for First Time, Defines Rape as War Crime.”
“wars and fightings…come…of your lusts that war in your members? Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain…Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?” (James 4:1-5)
At least 37 million people, and possibly up to 59 million, have been displaced by America’s “global war on terror” since it was launched by former President George W. Bush’s administration nearly 20 years ago,according to a new report from Brown University’s Cost of War project…
in and from Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, the Philippines, Libya, and Syria. This exceeds those displaced byevery war since 1900, except World War II,” the report states.
Millions of others have been displaced in smaller conflicts involving US forces in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali, Niger, SaudiArabia, and Tunisia, according to the report.
But there is more than just money being made. There are hybrid beings, again.
“And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes [the very last part of the fourth kingdom, that would be us], part of potter’s clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
- And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
- And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” (Dan 2:40-43)
The unnamed they who mingle themselves with the seed of men didn’t need to be defined because the original readers already knew, from their hyper dimensional world view, that they are the true power brokers, the spirit beings who rule from the back rooms of power.
These hybrids come ‘from the earth”, i.e. they are the creation of human scientists who have broken through the four dimensional barriers of time-space to gained access to hyper dimensional resources.
These are Nietzsche’s Supermen described by Hitler’s occultists. They have been in process of development since the 1800’s, with such rapid development in technology in the 2000’s that we should expect to be introduced to them any day.
The notion of the Master Race originated from 19th century racial theory, which posited that there is a hierarchy of races, and that cultures degenerate when distinct races mix. The bottom of this hierarchy included dark-skinned indigenous peoples…The top of the hierarchy was reserved for the Aryan races (Germans, Swedes, Icelanders, Norwegians, Danes, English, & Dutch). The figure of the Übermensch, with his blonde hair and blue eyes, was a member of the superior race which was intended to rule the earth during the Nazis’ so-called “Thousand Year Reich”.
Hitler implemented selective human breeding through the racial pseudo-science of eugenics. Many of these policies are generally seen as being related to what eventually became known as the Holocaust.
In 1932 Hitler implemented the Lebensborn program, which sought to be the literal “spring of life” for the Master Race. He created breeding facilities in which Aryan women were recruited to be impregnated by S.S. soldiers. A male German seeking admission into the program had to prove that he was in perfect physical condition, and that he was “racially pure” as far back as 1750. Before the program ended in 1944, the Lebensborn produced more than 42,000 babies.
The Germans also captured Aryan women and children from the surrounding conquered countries. From Poland, alone, they kidnapped 200,000 blond-haired, blue-eyed children
Hitler’s definition of genetic superiority did not stop with blonde hair and blue eyes. The value that Hitler placed on physical power led him to favor Aryan men with the strongest physiques and the tallest statures. Near the end of the Lebensborn program, Hitler set requirements that new male applicants be at least 6 ft. tall. Hitler regarded individuals who were 6 ft. 6 in. and taller as being the highest creed of Übermensch, the so-called “Hünenmensch”. He considered men of this stature to be the closest relatives of the original Germanic warrior tribes, from which the Aryan peoples are said to have descended.
Interesting when we recall that gigantism is an angel-hybrid trait.
The development of the Master Race did not end with the Nazis’ defeat. Germany got its eugenic theories and practices leading to the full-blown attempt to genetically mastermind the Master Race from its close friend and ally – America – who kept the research projects going after Germany lost the war.
After Germany’s defeat in the Second World War, the four main allies in Europe – the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and France – took part in a joint occupation of the German state…This arrangement ultimately evolved into the division of Germany into a Western and an Eastern sector…
the differing approaches of the occupying powers served to establish what would become a stark contrast between the two Germanys. The Soviet Union stripped its sector of manufacturing equipment in an effort to garner partial payment for wartime remittances, further stifling the reemergence of a strong German economy. In the western sector…the United States began investing in German industries…the U.S. Government began a massive aid program under the Marshall Plan.
The Marshal Plan strongly supports the consideration that German power brokers arranged for America to enter the war, not to defeat Germany, but to save Germany from the Soviets. For certain, American power brokers were actively invested in the Nazis’ rise to power as well as industrial enterprises during the war.
As the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz comes and goes, the long-controversial links between American industrialists and the rise of the Nazi regime have become clearer, thanks to recently uncovered documents.
The ties between Hitler’s Nazis and American businessmen such as Henry Ford, Averell Harriman, and Senator Prescott Bush, the father of George HW Bush, have long been cited in lawsuits filed by Holocaust survivors seeking compensation for their suffering. The late Senator Prescott Bush’s German assets were seized in 1942 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt under the Trading with the Enemy Act, which also carried prison penalties which Bush escaped. Historical scholarship over the last decade shows that Bush was deeply enmeshed in business which was vital to the rise of Nazi Germany, and almost certainly knew that his profits were driven by slave labor…
The American companies were heavily involved in German business during Hitler’s rise between 1933…and even after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the declaration of war upon Germany by the United States. Many say that the German “economic miracle” [in which profits were realized by American business tycoons] in fact was built on the slave labor of Jews, Poles, and other “undesirables” under the Nazi regime…in all areas of German industry…
We know that America and Russia raced to gather up as much advanced weapons and rocketry research as they could get and immediately put it to use.
Why would we imagine that German genetic research was thrown out?
In fact, it is ongoing and hasn’t changed direction since the Nazis were in charge.
The promise of personalized medicine is to exploit the variations in our genome, tailoring treatments and assessing risk of disease based on specific genes. But…
One 2016 analysis found that 81 percent of participants in genome-wide association studies were of European descent…
And of the 20 percent of research being done in non-European populations, much of it was research taking place in Asia, on populations of Asian ancestry…
The result of all this is that…precision medicine is on course to…reinforce existing societal and economic inequalities.
it is an astonishing fact that protein-coding sequences, which are what we mostly mean when we say “genes,” occupy only a little over 1% of the human genome. [Another] 8% of the genome is…DNA that governs the behavior of the 1 percent of DNA that codes for proteins…
So what’s the other 90 percent of the human genome…Some…is leftover fragments of dead viruses that invaded our ancestors’ genomes aeons ago.”
Now that just opens a huge line of inquiry, since viruses “are tools commonly used by molecular biologists to deliver genetic material into cells,” to create hybrids with recombinant DNA for instance.
After this experience with COVID, it is not a paranoid conspiracy theory to expect a false savior to promise victory over death via a vaccine against the latest deadly pandemic, therefore imposed on everyone for society’s welfare, with the mark of the beast 666 identifying those who have received the vaccine and social isolation from employment and shopping for those who refuse the vaccine. But then! A horrible twist results in a permanently corrupt state unable to be changed through death to incorruptible.
I base this on logic that demands that Christ’s offer to defeat death through identification with him as the Seed of the Woman has to be countered by Antichrist’s offer to defeat death through identification with him. In other words, altering one’s essential identity as homo sapiens Seed of the Woman.
Should believers then refuse all vaccines? I personally get vaccines on the basis that humans have free will. God won’t allow us to be slipped a mickey. If so, we would be innocent of the consequences.
- Those who take the mark of the beast do so knowingly and willingly.
- Those who escape his immortal death also do so knowingly and willingly by accepting mortal death.
“then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved:” (Matthew 24:21-22)
